And at age 19, Tatum played fearlessly in the postseason, averaging 18.5 points per game.What was once thought to be Boston’s new Big Three of Irving, Hayward and Al Horford, has quickly been recast as a Big Five.It’s left coach Brad Stevens with the enviable but delicate challenge of getting the projecting starting five of Irving, Hayward, Horford, Brown and Tatum to jell while also integrating a talented bench that includes Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, Marcus Morris, Aron Baynes and Daniel Theis.Rozier made the most of starter minutes when Irving was sidelined, and Smart and Morris were defensive cogs on a team that pushed the Cavaliers to seven games in the conference finals.“We have a long way to go. That being said, we clearly have a lot of good players,” Stevens said.Morris said the first task for this group will be leaving their egos in the locker room.“A blind person can see that we have a lot of talent,” Morris said. “So obviously we all know that there is some type of sacrifice that we have to take for the betterment of this team.” Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Head coach George Nsimbe has warned his charges not to underrate their opponents.“Cup games are usually very tricky; even a lower tier side can eliminate you. We can’t afford to underrate them because we don’t know what they are capable of doing. We take this match seriously just like those we look at in the KPL,” Nsimbe said as he sharpened his boys for the Meru sojourn.Tusker FC midfielder Humprey Mieno against Ushuru Kennedy Oduor.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaThe team warmed up to the Butterfly challenge with a 3-0 thrashing of National Super League side Ushuru FC, giving them a huge confidence boost after back-to-back Premier League losses.Enroute to the last 16, Tusker were made to labor before beating National Super League side Palos FC 1-0 with Jackson Macharia scoring the lone goal.

I expect a tough and entertaining game but just like any other coach, my aim is to do better than the last time,” he said.“But our strategy is taking a game at a time. At the moment our focus is on Sofapaka and getting a win off that match,” the tactician further outlined.In the tough tie, Muluya will miss three of his key players; Midfielder Patillah Omotto and winger Ovellah Ochieng who are in Spain with the All-Star team while left back Bolton Omwenga is out with a knee injury.But he is not disturbed an inch.“We have a very good squad with enough depth.

We have to fight for every piece of the field and hopefully pick a win,” Nkata noted.The Ugandan tactician, winner of the title last year with Tusker, is looking at being the first man in the history of the tournament to win the title back-to-back with two different teams.

Rush is on to get landscaping started on Kiltoy roundabout

first_imgLetterkenny councillors are seeking to speed up plans to add plants and flowers to improve the new Kiltoy roundabout before autumn.The roundabout is sponsored by Optum, one of Letterkenny’s biggest employers, and it is hoped that its appearance can be improved before the official opening of the company’s new premises in October.Councillor Jimmy Kavanagh said: “Optum see this sponsorship as a mean of supporting the community and Tidy Towns, but they have a roundabout where there is no work being done on. There are finding it hard having their name on the only roundabout in town that has no landscape on it.” Cllr Kavanagh called on the council to show support to the sponsors and facilitate the improvement of the roundabout before visitors arrive for the opening event in October.The local authority explained that the roundabout is currently covered in grass awaiting outstanding ESB and Eircom works.Councillors agreed to pre-approve a landscaping design by Parks and Open Spaces in order to facilitate the works as soon as the roundabout is ready.Meanwhile, signs directing to Lisnennan which Cllr Kavanagh requested for the area are due to be delivered and erected in two weeks’ time.

SA punches above its weight at Davos

first_imgSouth Africa punched above its weight at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum that came to a close in Davos, Switzerland on Sunday, with President Jacob Zuma and the International Marketing Council of SA driving a high-profile presence at the gathering of global business and political leaders.The country’s biggest ever delegation, a public-private partnership led by President Jacob Zuma, attended the meeting, where South Africa was featured as a theme, as well as the host of the official Soiree dinner for Davos delegates on Saturday.‘Experience South Africa’Under the theme “Experience South Africa”, leading international economic and political decision-makers were exposed to the best of South African art, cuisine and fine wines, as well as a number of sessions on the official Davos programme focused on “South Africa 2010 and beyond”.Saturday’s soiree, organised by the International Marketing Council, featured the cream of South Africa’s musical talent – the likes of Freshlyground, the Afrotenors, Jimmy Dludlu and Sibongile Mngoma – and nine of the country’s top chefs.Works by nine major South African artists, drawn from the Standard Bank Corporate Collection of South African Art, were on show in main Davos venue for the duration of the event, while the colours of the South African flag were ever-present in the woolen hats and scarves handed out as gifts to all the delegates.The 20:80 principleAnitha Soni, chairperson of the International Marketing Council, told Moneyweb’s Alec Hogg that South Africa’s Davos campaign had been “driven by the 20:80 principle, and that is to focus on the 20% of the decision-makers out there that we hope to influence.“And these 20% really put us here in Davos for the next three to four days, and we want to be top of mind to them – not only as a 2010 destination … but more especially for what 2010 will do for us as a country.”Leading “Team South Africa”, President Zuma used the opportunity to assure the international community of the country’s readiness to host the 2010 Fifa World Cup, and to market the country as a destination for business, trade and tourism.Zuma said the World Cup offered an opportunity for the world to see and experience Africa in a different way.“It is an opportunity to tackle stereotypes and preconceptions, and explore new frontiers of interaction and cooperation. It is an important milestone in the regeneration of the continent.”‘A Conversation on South Africa’Zuma also participated in a special plenary session entitled “A Conversation on South Africa”, which looked at the achievements and challenges of South Africa 20 years after the release of Nelson Mandela.Zuma told the world’s movers and shakers that the country had built a resilient economy which was now beginning to show signs of recovery following the global economic crisis.He said growth in the South African economy required a mixture of public and private investment. The challenge was to find the right balance between state intervention and market-driven economic activity. The two should reinforce each other, he said.Zuma also joined leaders from Mexico, Canada, Korea, Vietnam and Spain in a plenary discussion on “Global Governance Redesigned”.Zuma said a major problem with global decision-making was that poor countries did not have a say in important decisions that affected them, and called for an overhaul of multilateral institutions like the UN Security Council, World Bank and International Monetary Fund.He also held bilateral meetings with Soros Foundation chairman George Soros, former US President Bill Clinton, UK Conservative Party leader David Cameron, Swiss Confederation President Doris Leuthard, the Duke of York HRH Prince Andrew, Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, and former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan.SAinfo reporter and BuaNewslast_img read more
