first_imgNLEX rookie Ravena flourishes in first playoff game Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Alaska did a much better job after the break, getting back in the game and even held a five-point lead, 84-79 with 8:59 left to play that set up the tight finish.“I think our energy was much better directed in the second half,” he said. “I really felt like we started to play the way we have talked about playing, the way that we wanted to play: keeping the aggression and the energy on defense and with the press, and moving the ball on offense and sharing it.”The Aces even had a shot to steal the game late, but Abueva and Sonny Thoss missed their shots from close range while Road Warriors rookie Kiefer Ravena owned the endgame.“Hats off to NLEX. They did a really good job of closing out late,” remarked Compton. “I felt like it seemed to me like we must have missed five around-the-basket little bunnies, and even that last possession, we executed our play great but it felt just late. We got a lot of good looks but we couldn’t just knock it down.”Despite the loss, Compton is optimistic leading up to Wednesday’s do-or-die tiff.ADVERTISEMENT Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano LATEST STORIES GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson “Hopefully, we’ll be able to bounce back,” said Compton. “The great thing about a series is we’re not done.

We didn’t move and we didn’t move the ball, and that really helped them get transition baskets. I thought that was the biggest part of the first half, that they did a good job right from the get-go against us,” shared Compton.

LNOC Carries Ebola Fight to 7 Counties

first_imgIn an effort to wipe out the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) from Ebola hit countries, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in collaboration with the Liberia National Olympic Committee (LNOC) is launching an Ebola awareness campaign in the country, under the theme: “Do Not Stigmatize Ebola Survivors. They Are Our People, Embrace Them.”The campaign will focus on recovery in the fight against Ebola — simplify the de-stigmatization of Ebola survivors, and the LNOC is involving over 70,000 students in the leeward counties.Its president Philipbert Browne told journalists yesterday at LNOC headquarters on Randall Street, in Monrovia, seven counties will receive anti-Ebola materials, of which 80% will be for schools, and 20% for sporting associations and/or athletes.Browne said the distribution of the anti-Ebola items would begin on Monday, January 23, in Grand Cape Mount County, with the donation of 200 large anti-Ebola buckets with pumps, 40 cartons of Bleach Clora, five pieces of thermometers and dozens of detergents (soaps) and antiseptic soaps.Brown further said similar donations would be given to all the counties.Bomi County is expected to receive its supplies on January 23rd and on Tuesday, February 24th will be the turn of Margibi and Grand Bassa Counties.Distributions will continue on Wednesday, Feb. 25 February, in Bong County and Nimba County on Thursday, Feb. 26, to be climaxed the next day in Grand Gedeh County.“Before the distribution of anti-Ebola items County Superintendents and Sports Coordinators must be in attendance,” Browne said.He maintained that the continuous awareness against the Ebola virus is important and warned that “if we take our eye off the ball, case numbers will climb again.”Mr. Malcolm Joseph, LNOC’s vice president for Technical Affairs said despite the low infection rate, there is a need to sustain the effort to reach a ‘zero infection rate.’Joseph said a single case is equivalent to an outbreak and the threat it poses will not be over until the last case is identified and isolated.It may be recalled that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach and the President of Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) H.E Sheikh Ahmed Al-Sabah in separate remarks, expressed concern and the efforts needed to combat the virus from the affected countries.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
