TNT sticking with Rice

first_imgAll eyes will be on Glen Rice Jr. in tonight’s match—and all future TNT games. —Sherwin VardeleonANTIPOLO—Nash Racela, with genuine amazement, was asking why scribes were badgering him on whether or not Glen Rice Jr. is here to stay as TNT KaTropa import.With Michael Craig still watching from behind the bench in the last three games, the jury is still out on the son and namesake of the former NBA All-Star.ADVERTISEMENT Grand Slam-seeking San Miguel Beer has also made an import change by signing up Terik Bridgeman in place of Wendell McKines.

But from among the imports of powerhouse teams, the former Washington Wizard in the NBA is built differently and plays unlike the others.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutAnd the fact that Craig is still here opens Racela up for that sort of questioning.“Slowly, he is getting a feel of the league,” Racela said of his import, who likes to play the perimeter more and is considered small compared to the others because of his lean frame. “He now understands the calls (of the referees) and the physical plays (on him).

Berths in the top four carrying a distinct advantage in the first round of the playoffs.GlobalPort has that sort of bruiser for an import in Murphy Halloway, who churns out double-double numbers with impunity which could help the Batang Pier in their playoff drive.Right now, both the Texters and the Batang Pier are not there even as KIA Picanto and Blackwater slug it out in the 4:15 p.m. contest.In related developments, Blackwater and Barangay Ginebra came to terms on a trade that sent injured sophomore Art dela Cruz and Raymond Aguilar to the Gin Kings in exchange for Chris Ellis and Dave Marcelo.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Catriona Gray spends Thanksgiving by preparing meals for people with illnesses LATEST STORIES LOOK: Venues for 2019 SEA Games Reyes wants expanded Gilas cadets pool Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

I’ve been talking to him almost every day, telling him that it’s his last year and I’m giving him a lot of offensive options for him and he just has to embrace that and he has to deliver.”Despite the loss, the 57-year-old remains optimistic with this team as he continues his preparations for the upcoming collegiate season later this year.ADVERTISEMENT Read Next Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasalast_img read more

Turning point in Pakistan vs New Zealand World Cup match

first_imgNew Zealand put 302 on board against Pakistan, who are definitely not good in chasing. And when it comes of 300-plus scores they usually find themselves up against the wall.And that’s what happened during the World Cup Group A match at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy, where the team just floundered as the Kiwi bowlers made merry.But, the turning point in the game was those three important dismissals that had the Pakistan team reeling on 23-4.First Ahmed Shehzad fell to Kyle Mills on 23-2 in the seventh over. Then Mills accounted for Younis Khan in the same over and the Pakistan scoreboard read 23-3. In the next over Nathan McCullum scalped Kamran Akmal and Pakistan went down to 23-4.Those quick dismissal Pakistan were already looking down the barrel.Man-of-the-MatchIt has to be Ross Taylor, who scored an impressive 131 off just 124 balls to helped the Kiwis put an impressive 302 on board. His fine innings was decorated with eight fours and seven over the fence shots.last_img read more

Katrina takes Hrithik on a ride

first_imgKatrina rides a Royal Enfield as actor Hrithik gives her company in a promotional gig for ZNMD.Katrina Kaif literally took Hrithik Roshan for a ride when she vroomed down the roads of Mumbai on a Royal Enfield even as he rode pillion on Friday afternoon.Biker babe Kat and Hrithik were actually engaging in some smart, pre-planned promotional activity for their new film, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD).The gig was in sync with a highlight scene in the film, where Katrina chases Hrithik’s car down a scenic highway in Spain. After she catches up with him, the film’s much-touted kiss between the two stars follows even as their co-stars – essaying assorted characters – watch in amusement.On Friday, the paparazzi and fans who had gathered on the road of Goregaon’s Film City however had no such luck since Katrina and Hrithik did not follow up their short bike trip with a live smooch.Katrina arrived at the location early and did some quick riding rehearsal on a 150cc bike alone.She then did some double-ride practice with hairstylist Hakim Alim on the pillion. Hrithik arrived soon after and the onscreen couple took a ride that lasted about 10 minutes.Frenzied mediapersons, shutterbugs and fans followed them, some on two-wheelers and others running down the road, even as bodyguards of both the stars tried to keep pace.”It was a publicity stunt to promote the film, but so what? When Kat is riding a big bike with Hrithik sitting behind her, who would give up the chance to watch?” said 16-year-old Harshit Samarth, a self-confessed Katrina fan, who reached the spot almost two hours in advance.advertisementKatrina was indeed dressed to bike, in laced boots, grunge Tshirt and a pair of jeans. In sync with her tomboyish act, she sported no jewellery and had only a simple hairband holding her tresses back as she drove.Hrithik turned up in a Harley Davidson cap, a tight tee and blue denims.last_img read more
