Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ “I knew I had to set the tone, but the other guys set the tone also. So in first quarter, we just wanted to come in and punch them in the face first because if we do that, we know we’ll win the game,” Rhodes said after pouring in a game-high 30 points that went with 11 rebounds, three assists, four blocks, and two steals to carry the Beermen to their first Commissioner’s Cup crown in 17 years.“They’ll be so intense trying to get it to a Game 7, they’ll be shooting bad shots, so we did that and everything took care of itself.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsForget Dominic McGuire, the NBA veteran who was supposedly the Beermen’s first-choice import this conference. Forget Ricardo Ratliffe, the decorated Star reinforcement who has owned Rhodes’ number in the Korean Basketball League and the one coach Leo Austria endorsed as the prospective Best Import.When the dust settled, Rhodes stood tall, drenched in confetti and soaking in all the glory after finally getting over the hump as he made believers out of doubters. Getting a year older here in the country, the 32-year-old will be coming home in Galveston, Texas not only as the Best Import but also a champion.“My first championship and it happened in the Philippines. I’m just lost for words,” he said. “I just want to thank San Miguel for choosing me, to boss Ramon S. Ang for always giving me encouraging words, my bosses, and my teammates. We went through a little adversity, but these guys, they’re great teammates. They welcomed me as family from day one.”Rhodes’ job may be done, but he knows the rest of San Miguel isn’t.And as the team makes a run at a rare Grand Slam in the season-ending Governors’ Cup, Rhodes gave Wendell McKines, who will be SMB’s import for the third conference, some words of wisdom.“I told him the pressure’s on him now,” he said with a chuckle. “The pressure’s off my back. I’m a champion, so I ain’t gonna worry about that. But yeah, I just gave him encouragement. And he’s going to get the job done. He’s a hard worker.” ADVERTISEMENT Another vape smoker nabbed in Lucena LATEST STORIES I’ll urge Pacquiao to quit, says trainer Roach View comments Rhodes is just also glad that he’ll be going home the same way he arrived.“I came to a parade in my first day here and I’ll be having my own parade soon,” he said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Fifty-two years is by no means a short span of time. So when Krishna Poonia broke the jinx in athletics and brought India a gold in the Commonwealth Games after Milkha Singh’s feat in the 440 yards in the 1958 Games, it made every Indian proud. I am no different.Having predicted a clean sweep as far as the women’s discus throw was concerned, I wasn’t surprised with the performances of Krishna, Harwant Kaur and Seema Antil. But what astonished me was the kind of dominance shown by them.It felt as if they were the only three athletes taking part and the rest were mere dummies. Competing in Ukraine before the Games seems to have kept the trio in good stead. Things are slowly but surely falling into place as far as the future of Indian athletics is concerned.While the world is looking up and taking note of the commendable achievements, including that of Vikas Gowda and Prajusha Maliakkal, on Sunday, I am not surprised. I had emphasised on Day One that we will bag a record number of medals as far as track and field events are concerned.I have been monitoring their performance closely and commented only after having assessed their training schedule in the lead-up to the Games. Vikas and Prajusha have been divergent in their own ways. Vikas is an epitome of consistency, hitting the 62m-mark consistently.Prajusha worked hard and even though she failed to achieve her personal best mark, she did enough to win a silver. I am pleased with Prajusha’s achievement because her journey hasn’t been easy.advertisementComing from a poor family, she has had to struggle to help her father (a cook) run the family and also chase her dream of becoming an athlete. On the women’s 100m winner Osayemi Oludamola testing positive for methylhexaneamine, I feel it’s foolish on her part to even try using a banned substance.With Indian athletes winning quite a few medals, fans have started imagining a rosy scene in November’s Asian Games. But let me warn you, this is the beginning and it’s too early to comment on the Asiad. (The writer has been an athletics finalist in Olympics for India).

Courtesy of FacebookFreshman midfielder Paige Hamilton looks for the ball during a game against New Hampshire, at Buckeye Varsity Field. OSU won, 3-2.Ohio State’s field hockey team finished the Buckeye Classic 1-1.On Friday the team was victorious against Missouri State, 5-1 and on Sunday they took on Bucknell and fell in overtime, 3-2.In Friday’s game, sophomore forward Peanut Johnson recorded her first hat trick of the season, the second time in her career she has achieved the feat.Johnson said the whole team stepped up and that contributed to the win.“We really came together as a team. I don’t think one person tried to do too much,” Johnson said. “We just kind of tried to rely on each other. I think that’s what helped a lot.”Coach Anne Wilkinson said she was impressed with many of the players’ aggressiveness and their abilities to attack the ball on both sides.“I think (senior midfielder Mona Frommhold) really did a great job of keeping the space and the shape of our defense and being able to step up and intercept,” Wilkinson said. “And (senior) Maria Swartz, she was our left back, she must have had at least 12 interceptions out of the back and she was really playing aggressive and stepping up.”Wilkinson said her players were faced with good pressure from the opponents but they were able to execute based on their fundamental skills. She also said they need to work on some more things as well.“I think our stick skills really stood out… our ability to pass the ball and distribute, but we will continue to work on our team speed,” Wilkinson said.Johnson said there are some things the team needs to improve on though.“We just need to keep making sure we keep the work rate up and off ball movement too, like if we lose it we just need to keep hustling back. I think that will win some more games for us,” Johnson said.Senior midfielder and co-captain, Arielle Cowie, said she noticed the team’s endurance was better due to all the practice they put into their fitness last week.“There wasn’t a moment I was really tired and I think we didn’t let the intensity drop,” Cowie said. “We kept the tempo upbeat and it really helped that each and every person was on the same page.”Even though the team fell in overtime again this season, senior midfield and co-captain, Nora Murer, said the squad did a great job together over the weekend.“I think we worked really hard as a team,” Murer said.The Buckeyes are scheduled to travel to Syracuse, N.Y., this weekend to play Massachusetts Saturday at 2 p.m. and Syracuse Sunday at 2 p.m.

Then the games are really coming, it is an intense time and it looks like ‘How can you leave out him or him or him?”“Don’t forget Divock Origi and Dom Solanke trained really, really good and are not in the squad (on Saturday). That is really hard but they will be used as well and they will have a part to play.”
