Bloody good win for the Tar Heels

first_imgBut perhaps the lasting image of the intense rivalry is Hansbrough’s bloodstained face, a scary-looking picture that evoked memories of center Eric Montross’ bleeding, shaven head after he took an elbow in 1992. The latest injury came with 14.5 seconds left, when Hansbrough leaped for a layup. After the ball left his hand, he was struck in the face by Gerald Henderson’s right elbow. “He got our guys in the air, and I came down on him,” Henderson said. “It’s unfortunate that it turned out like it did, but I wasn’t trying to hurt the kid or anything. It just turned worse than it was.” Hansbrough crumpled to the ground, his nose bleeding onto the floor and down his face, before he jumped to his feet menacingly and had to be restrained from Duke’s players while he was taken to the locker room. The officials reviewed the play and ejected Henderson, then later said in a joint statement that under NCAA rules he would be suspended for one game. After the game, Hansbrough had cotton in his nose while he watched his teammates cut down the Dean Smith Center nets. Hansbrough had 26 points and 17 rebounds before suffering an injury that looked worse than it really was in the closing seconds of the No. 8 Tar Heels’ 86-72 win over No. 14th Duke on Sunday, clinching the top seed in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament. Terry added 15 points in his final home game for the Tar Heels (25-6, 11-5), who swept the regular-season series with the Blue Devils (22-9, 8-8) for the first time in 11 years, avoided their first three-game slide under Roy Williams and gave the homespun coach his 100th victory at his alma mater. Blood poured from his nose and onto his lip, chin and the court. The latest bruised face of college basketball’s nastiest rivalry belongs to North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough. “Just a little bump and bruise,” teammate Reyshawn Terry said. “Nothing that a little ice can’t handle.” center_img Williams said team doctors told him the center’s nose was not broken, and though Hansbrough didn’t speak to reporters after the game, point guard Bobby Frasor said the player nicknamed “Psycho T” for his relentless focus had calmed down and was laughing about the near-confrontation. At No. 5 Florida 85, Kentucky 72: Joakim Noah and Taurean Green scored 17 points apiece and the Gators (26-5, 13-3) rebounded from consecutive losses to become the first SEC team to win six in a row against Kentucky. Creighton 67, at No. 11 Southern Illinois 61: Anthony Tolliver had 15 points and 13 rebounds and the Jayhawks (22-10) upset the Salukis (27-6) to earn their seventh NCAA Tournament appearance in nine years. At No. 16 Louisville 86, Seton Hall 71: Edgar Sosa scored 18 points to lead five Cardinal players in double figures and Louisville (22-8, 12-4) clinched second-place in the Big East. Clemson 75, at No. 21 Virginia Tech 74: K.C. Rivers scored 22 points, including the decisive basket with 18 seconds remaining, and the Tigers prevented the Hokies from capturing a share of the ACC regular-season title. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Counciling failure

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! No wonder, then, that respondents’ hopes for the councils’ future were bleak. Whereas questions measuring Angelenos’ optimism about the councils’ future drew about 70 percent positive responses in 2002, those figures have since dropped to 50 percent or less. This lack of enthusiasm is an all-too-predictable response to the disappointment the councils have been – through no fault of their own. Although many dedicated activists participate in the councils, they are hamstrung by a lack of funding and power, as well by insufficient guidance and support from City Hall. In December, a University of Southern California study found that the councils had failed to shape city policies. And last month, a city audit showed that the councils lacked authority and support. The state of the councils is so poor that Fernando Guerra, director of the Leavey Center, says there’s a “need to re-examine neighborhood councils’ roles – and need for being.” That’s a harsh, if realistic, assessment. Neighborhood councils remain the best hope for democracy in L.A., if only they could get the help they need. Rather than scrapping the councils, it would be far better to actually empower them. WHAT’S surprising isn’t that public confidence in Los Angeles’ neighborhood councils has tanked over the past five years. City Hall has done its best to undermine hopes for a more democratic local government. What’s surprising is that of roughly 1,400 Angelenos polled about the councils, so many respondents knew what they were. When researchers from Loyola Marymount University’s Leavey Center for the Study of Los Angeles asked local residents whether they thought neighborhood councils have improved the quality of L.A. government, only 21 percent replied “Don’t know.” Of course, add that 21 percent to the 38 percent who answered “No,” and the conclusion is inescapable – the majority of L.A. residents don’t think the councils have done much good. last_img read more

first_imgDonegal and Monaghan are all level at half-time in what has been an utterly drab and dour affair at O’Donnell Park.Donegal haven’t scored a point from play, Michael Murphy has kicked three frees and Patrick McBrearty chipped over another free after fifteen minutes.Monaghan’s Paul Finlay scored two points from frees and Conor McManus scored a point from a free before being black-carded after an incident with Neil McGee. Kieran Hughes scored the only point from play in the entire match.Donegal started brightly and were dominant in the opening period, but since then Monaghan have gained a foothold in the game and came back into it.However, supporters have grown frustrated at the entertainment that is being served up.It is a terrible spectacle with both teams adopting defensive approaches to the game and that has resulted in an awful thirty five minutes of football.

first_imgCouncillors and council workers get ready of the big clean-up across Inishowen.Inishowen county councillors have joined forces to urge members of the public to get behind the annual Spring Clean Up campaign.There is an ongoing litter problem in parks, roadsides and other green spaces across the peninsula.That is why councillors are urging ordinary citizens to re-discover ‘civic pride’ and take up the challenge of helping to keep their valuable green resources clean in order to protect an increasingly threatened wildlife and to encourage greater use of woods and parklands by schools and local communities. The campaign is to be centred around a massive effort on Saturday April 11 but you can ‘do your bit’ anytime.Local litter warden Pearse McCrory said the effort and enthusiasm shown in the past proved local people have a pride in their areas. Communities and organisations were determined to keep their corner of the county litter free.“We will be able to supply anyone looking for bags, gloves, litter pickers and high-viz vests and of course skips to collect the rubbish. With everyone working together we not only heighten awareness of the problem but we encourage everyone to take responsibility for their litter,” he said.Council cathaoirleach Cllr John Campbell backed the initiative saying it was remarkable what an area could achieve when they pulled together and worked for the greater good. This clean up campaign, which is done in conjunction with the Buncrana Tidy Towns Committee, is part of the National Spring Clean Up Campaign which is being held in all areas of the county and country.To register for National Spring Clean call the National Spring Clean Hotline on (01) 4002219 or register online by logging onto to the website at www.nationalspringclean.orgINISHOWEN ALL SET FOR MAJOR SPRING CLEAN UP was last modified: March 31st, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:clean-updonegalInishowenlast_img read more
