To start or not to start?

To start or not to start?

In less than two weeks, second year player Chavano ?Buddy? Hield will begin his first full training camp with the Sacramento Kings.

Camp begins on Tuesday, September 26, just ahead of the start of the National Basketball Association (NBA) preseason.

Hield was able to put together a solid run to close out last season, increasing his numbers across the board after being traded away from the New Orleans Pelicans in the Demarcus Cousins deal.

Despite his improved performance, it is still not a foregone conclusion that Hield will begin the 2017-18 season as the Kings? starting shooting guard. According to Kings Correspondent Sean Fitzpatrick yesterday, it?s expected that veteran guard Garrett Temple will fill the starting role early in the season. However, there were several reports earlier in the summer that projected that Hield would get the start. The conflicting reports could mean the decision is too close to call at the moment and could potentially come down to how both players perform in camp and the preseason.

Sacramento plays its first preseason game at home against the San Antonio Spurs on October 2, then it will travel to San Antonio to take on the Spurs on October 6. They?ll also play the Los Angeles Lakers, Portland Trailblazers, and the Los Angeles Clippers before the preseason concludes on October 13 with a match against the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

In a recent interview, Hield said that he?s in a good space with the team and is focused on making a run at the playoffs with this group and bringing some excitement to the city of Sacramento. This offseason, the Kings acquired several key additions in free agency, including George Hill and veteran forwards Zach Randolph and Vince Carter. Sacramento was also able to draft one of the most highly acclaimed prospects in this year?s draft, Kentucky?s De?Aaron Fox.

?In Sacramento, the fans are great,? Hield said. ?They treat everyone like family. I always say that it reminds me of a little college town. Adding the veterans was really big. We need it. We couldn?t do it by ourselves and management did a great job getting those guys. I think George has missed the playoffs once in his career, Zach is still able to go toe-to-toe with some of the top players in the business, and Vince is going into his 20th season. I don?t think I could find someone better to learn from.?

In 25 games with the Kings last season, Hield started 18 of them and averaged 15.1 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. He averaged 10.6 points and 3.3 rebounds on the season.

 


Sun moving forward with ?JJ? and Og...

Sun moving forward with ?JJ? and Ogwumike

Behind second-year post player Jonquel ?JJ? Jones, the Connecticut Sun put together one of its best seasons in recent years. The Sun finished fourth overall in the Women?s National Basketball Association (WNBA) standings and advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2012.

Sun Head Coach Curt Miller was named as the WNBA Coach of the Year, and Jones set the single-season record for rebounding average (11.9) and total rebounds (403). She was also tabbed as the league?s Most Improved Player. Jones was also the Sun?s best scorer at 15.4 points per game.

While the Grand Bahama native?s success on the court was a breath of fresh air for the Sun, it now puts the Sun in a tough situation this offseason. Jones took over the starting center spot after veteran center Chiney Ogwumike suffered a leg injury at the beginning of the season. Now that she?s fully recovered, Miller and other Sun players are focused on getting both Ogwumike and Jones on the same page.

?We have to infuse Chiney back into out post game and continue to build for the future,? he said. ?I can?t be more pleased with our core group that is under contract and are coming back. We anticipate having no trouble re-signing Alyssa Thomas, Chiney is on a long-term contract and ?JJ? is under rookie contract. Those are our three core people in the post, but we?re going to have to figure out the best way to round out the post game.?

Miller said that regardless of the line-up they choose to go with next season, both Jones and Thomas would continue to play major roles with the Sun moving forward.

?We?re starting something very, very special here, that this year is only the beginning of and we look forward to the future. I?m incredibly excited. ?JJ? has only scratched the surface and will only get better. The only person comparable to Alyssa in this league is Los Angeles? Candace Parker as a facilitating four. It?s just amazing what she is capable of.?

In honor of being named the WNBA?s Most Improved Player, Jones received $5,000 and a specially designed trophy from Tiffany & Co. Jones is the third Sun player to earn the honor since it was first presented in 2000. The 6?6? forward/center averaged just 6.8 points and 3.7 rebounds per game as a rookie. She was up to 15.4 points and 11.9 rebounds per game this past season.

McMinns, Axemen look to keep win streak going

Eugene McMinns and the Acadia Axeman look to extend their win streak today when they take on Saint Mary?s University on the road.

The Axemen looked impressive in their last two games, winning both convincingly to remain undefeated with a 2?0 win/loss record on the season. Against St. Francis Xavier University on Saturday, the Axemen mustered up a late surge to pull away late in the game and score a 38?24 win. McMinns came up big down the stretch in the game. With Acadia up 24?17 after three quarters, McMinns added another touchdown to the list with a 94-yard punt return for a score.

Trailing 31?17, the St. Francis Xavier X-Men fought their way back into the game as Dylan Fisher scored a one-yard rushing touchdown with 6:19 left. However, the Axemen responded quickly, getting a scoring play of their own. Then, Cordell Hastings broke a tackle and sprinted to the goal, putting Acadia ahead 38?24 to score the final points of the game. McMinns also had three catches in the game for 29 yards and added 189 punt return yards and 49 yards on kickoff returns. For his efforts, he was named the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) special teams player of the week.

McMinns, who spent the past two seasons with the Axemen, said he vowed he would become a smarter, more efficient player this season. Through three regular season games so far, it?s showing.

?As a player I would say physically nothing has changed. I am still an athletic and explosive wide receiver,? he said. ?Mentally as a player, I understand the game of football more, and I can say I am more of a student of the game by watching film with a closer attention to detail in order to have a better edge on my opponent. Also, I?m understanding my role on every play and performing it to the coaches? design.?

McMinns and the Axemen will have to be at their best to come up with wins in their next two games. They suffered a 20?17 loss to Saint Mary?s in the preseason and fell 64?23 to Mount Allison in their season opener on August 26. The Axemen will take on Saint Mary?s, again, on September 30 at home.

McMinns had two catches for 85 yards and two touchdowns against Saint Mary?s in the preseason last month. He added 84 yards on kickoff returns.

Against Mount Allison, McMinns had five catches for 62 yards and a touchdown. He added 114 kickoff return yards and 68 punt return yards.

Teams begin quest for spots in the 2017 Bahamas Bowl

The race is on for participation in the 2017 Bahamas Bowl - the fourth edition of the event, set for Friday December 22, once again at the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium, starting at 12:30 p.m. It will be broadcasted live on ESPN.

The two participants ? selected from among bowl-eligible teams in Conference USA (C-USA) and the Mid-American Conference (MAC) ? will be announced by the bowl, ESPN Events and conference partners once finalized.

The third week of the collegiate football season gets underway this weekend. Some of the games that could have a bearing on what happens in The Bahamas in December including Louisiana Tech visiting Western Kentucky University (WKU) in a rematch of the 2016 Conference USA Championship Game, Middle Tennessee visiting Minnesota in a game that is a reunion of the 2015 Bahamas Bowl head coaches, Rick Stockstill (Middle Tennessee) and P.J. Fleck (Minnesota/former Western Michigan head coach), and Central Michigan (2-0) taking on Syracuse.

In the 2016 Conference USA Championship Game between Louisiana Tech and WKU, Western Kentucky won 58-44 in the highest scoring conference title game in Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) history. In the regular season, Louisiana Tech won at home 55-52.

The 2017 Bahamas Bowl will be contested between Conference USA and the MAC. The MAC leads the season series, 2-1, and teams from the two conferences will play each other four more times this season.

Also noteworthy is that 2016 Bahamas Bowl Champion Old Dominion University (ODU) leads the FBS with 15 sacks, nearly halfway to its 2016 season total of 34. The ODU Monarchs have the top three individuals in C-USA in sacks - Miles Fox (five), Bunmi Rotimi (four) and Pat Toal (three).

One of the 2016 Bahamas Bowl participants Eastern Michigan got a solid performance from quarterback Brogan Roback in their 16-13 win at Rutgers. He completed 19 passes for 260 yards and a touchdown without an interception. He completed passes to nine different receivers.

Conference USA quarterbacks have the two longest active streaks in the FBS in consecutive games with at least one touchdown pass - Marshall?s Chase Litton (23 games) and Middle Tennessee?s Brent Stockstill (18). As far as the MAC is concerned, the streak has been extended to 12 consecutive seasons in which a MAC team has a regular-season victory over a team from the Big Ten Conference. During the streak, MAC teams have defeated 11 different teams and have 25 victories.

 

Seymour honored for breakout season

Seymour honored for breakout season

East Tennessee State University (ETSU) honored sprint hurdler Katrina Seymour on Tuesday for her performance on the track in her final collegiate season.

Seymour, a graduated senior, received the David E. Walker Most Valuable Athlete Award, as well as certificates for breaking the school record in the 400 meter (m) hurdles with a 56.32 mark in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) East Region preliminary. Seymour, who served as a 2017 team captain, also set a new school record in the indoor 400m dash with a 54.70 time.

?Each September, we present six special awards to recognize the accomplishments of our athletes from the previous year,? said ETSU Director of Track and Field George Watts. ?Last year, we had athletes win conference championships, set ETSU school and Southern Conference meets records ? and in the case of Katrina Seymour ? score and earn All-American status at the NCAA Championships.?

Seymour finished third in her heat of the women?s 400m hurdles quarterfinal in a national record time of 56.32 seconds, and was fourth overall at the NCAA East Regionals in Lexington, Kentucky, thereby earning a spot in the semi-finals in Eugene, Oregon.

?When I completed the race, it didn?t set in that I broke the record,? Seymour said about the race. ?I just really wanted to win the race and run a fast time. I was really excited and happy because that was one of my goals that I was working toward. I am happy that I got the record.?

Seymour wound up fifth overall in the finals of the women?s 400m hurdles in 59.68 seconds.

?It was a big accomplishment and something that I have been working hard toward the entire season,? Seymour said of her NCAA finals appearance.

During the outdoor season, Seymour broke the ETSU 400m record four times. She also claimed four event victories and 13 top ten finishes during the outdoor season.

During the indoor season, Seymour dominated the Southern Conference Championships, earning titles in the 60m, 200m, 400m, and 4x400m relay and registered 11 top 10 finishes.

For her efforts, she earned first team All-American honors in the 400m hurdles by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Association (USTFCCA).

Seymour became the first ETSU female individual track and field athlete to earn All-American honors since Heidi Dahl did so in the 1,500m back in 2009.

 

Young, Canadians win?Northwest Leag...

Young, Canadians win?Northwest League?title

Chavez Young brought the crowd to its feet with a heroic catch in the ninth inning on Tuesday night to help the Vancouver Canadians beat the Eugene Emaralds 2-1 to win the best-of-five Northwest League title in four games.

Logan Warmoth hit a single out to right field to plate a pair with two outs in the fifth inning and gave Vancouver, the Toronto Blue Jays? short?season single-A farm club, a 2-1 lead. Warmoth?s single was just one of two hits recorded by Vancouver on the night.

The Emeralds scored its only run of the night in the fourth inning when Michal Cruz drilled a home run to right field off Vancouver relief pitcher Zack Logue. With the game heating up in the ninth, Young made what was possibly the play of the game when he flipped over the fence in foul territory to grab a Jhonny Bethencourt foul pop-up for the second out in the ninth. William Oullette struck out Will Remillard for the final out of the game.

Vancouver also scored a 2-1 win over Eugene in Game 3 on Monday and a 7-5 win on Saturday. Eugene mustered up its only win of the series on Sunday.

Vancouver qualified for the post season after it won the North Division first-half pennant, and had the league?s best-combined record, at 43-33. Last season, Vancouver went a combined 29-45 last season, the worst since it joined the league in 2000.

Young, who spent most of the year with Bluefield of the Appalachian League, had a solid stretch with the Canadians to close out the season. He hit .308 through five games, had an On Base Percentage of .400, a slugging percentage of .538 with five Runs Batted In (RBI).

After getting off to a rough start behind the plate in 2017, Young was able to find success behind throughout the remainder of the season.

?My first at-bats were rough,? said Young. ?I was kind of saying to myself, ?why am I not hitting the ball?? One of my teammates told me that nothing was wrong with my swing. It?s just that the bat-head is not in the strike zone long enough. If you stay longer in the hitting zone, you?ll be able to hit the ball better. After he told me that I just kept progressing.?

Young signed with the Blue Jays at the Major League Baseball (MLB) deadline in 2016; therefore he was only able to play in 21 games with the Gulf Coast Blue Jays as a rookie. Young was selected in the 39th round of the MLB Draft in 2016, going 1282nd overall.

Apple received a permit to test self-driving cars in California

It seems like Apple has not yet hit the brakes on its self-driving car.

As of Friday, California?s Department of Motor Vehicles now lists Apple as one of the companies with a permit to legally test self-driving cars in the state. This means that Apple?s self-driving initiative, codenamed Project Titan, is back on track.

California requires all companies with autonomous vehicles to register before hitting the road. Other tech companies like Google and Uber, alongside car manufacturers like Tesla and BMW, have also received permits to test their self-driving technology on public roads. Uber?s permit was recently secured in March, but the company had been conducting rogue trials for a while.

A Good Snowman is Hard to Build charmingly lives up to its billing

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

We?ve all been inundated with the query since Frozen came out a few years back, but yes: in fact, I do want to build a snowman. And there?s an iPhone and iPad game that lets me do it all year ?round without the need for heavy gloves and a coat.

A Good Snowman is Hard to Build debuted early in 2015 on Mac, launching with an inventive promotion that tied the daily price to the current temperature in London. The iOS version didn?t launch with the same amusing sales hook, but at least this relatively short and sweet indie puzzler feels right at home on touch devices.
