first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ In the first of two exhibitions to start the 2017-18 season, Syracuse beat Southern New Hampshire, a Division II program, 84-54, on Wednesday night inside the Carrier Dome. The Orange went down early, 13-8, but implemented a full-court defense to rip off a 22-0 first-half run and pull away from the Penmen. Nine days before the season opener, sophomore guard Tyus Battle led all players with 20 points. Freshman forward Oshae Brissett added 17.Here are superlatives from the game.The turning point: Tyus Battle’s dunkA two-handed slam by Syracuse’s sophomore guard provided the lift the Orange needed. To dismiss a sloppy first nine and a half minutes, SU flashed full-court pressure. The first SNHU possession after the change resulted in a quick steal and dish to Battle, who slammed it with two hands to give SU a 15-13 lead. Syracuse rode the dunk amid a 22-0 run, part of a 33-8 explosion headed into the break.Stud: Tyus BattleAdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s lone returning starter from last season was aggressive from the start. Battle commanded the SU offense early, finding his way into the lane and establishing his shot. He went 0-for-4 from 3 but went 8-for-9 from the charity stripe over 26 minutes of turnover-free basketball. On consecutive possessions in the second half, Battle drove and hit an open Howard Washington for 3.Dud: Matthew MoyerMoyer, a redshirt freshman, started at forward and finished with 10 rebounds. But he was slow to get to perimeter shooters on a couple of closeouts and had only five points across a team-high 28 minutes. He went 2-for-7 from the field and committed four fouls.Highlight: Bourama Sidibe’s blockingIn his first unofficial game of college basketball, Sidibe drew immediate attention. He came off the bench to replace starter Paschal Chukwu, a junior, and racked up five blocks in nine minutes of first-half play. Sidibe blocked the layup attempt of the first driver that came his way. With about seven minutes before the half, Sidibe stuffed a shot that hit a fan in the second row behind the basket.He hit four straight free throws, too, amid SU’s 22-0 run. When Chukwu fell into foul trouble at the start of the second half, Sidibe got more time than the 20 minutes per game head coach Jim Boeheim anticipated. Sidibe finished with six blocks, 10 points and eight boards.Lowlight: Frank Howard’s turnoversHoward, the starting point guard, scored Syracuse’s first points of the game on a 3-pointer from the right wing. He racked up 15 points and three steals, but the junior finished with six turnovers against a Division-II defense. With SU down one about four minutes in, Howard dribbled into traffic around the left elbow and lost control.With Syracuse down 8-5, he didn’t hit rim on an awkward lefty layup attempt. Later, after Syracuse commanded a double-digit lead, Howard tossed a pass out of bounds. Boeheim slapped his forehead in frustration.Out due to injury: Geno ThorpeThorpe, a graduate transfer from South Florida, sat on the bench in a jumpsuit because he hurt his ankle in practice. He did not play, leaving the SU frontcourt to Battle, Howard and Washington.Syracuse plays next on Monday night against Southern Connecticut State in its second and final exhibition.

first_imgFearing for their lives and those of their children, residents in two communities, along the West Bank of Demerara (WBD), are concerned over leaning electrical power poles in the area. The residents, who live at Vriesland and La Retraite, told Guyana Times that they have made repeated reports to the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Inc.The pole that poses a danger to Vriesland, WBDThey, however, observed that their complaints were being ignored, and expressed that the prolonged situation was a worrying one, as the power lines could snap at any moment which would cause even more danger.This publication obtained photographs of the leaning power lines at the section of La Retraite that faces the river where five poles are leaning, with some so low that some residents can nearly reach the wooden supports.“I don’t want no post fall and me get shock. People here want the post fix, but them ain’t bothering with we,” a mother of one explained.She added that some time last year when the poles were beginning to lean, a GPL crew came and fixed one. Her contention is that they should have rectified the other leaning poles.Meanwhile, this newspaper also got a photograph of a leaning pole in a yard at Vriesland and residents pointed out that this one has been rotting for a while. It was noted that several houses on a few plots of land are fed from this single pole and according to the occupants, their complaints to GPL were similarly being ignored.One of five leaning poles in the waterfront area of La RetraiteOne sugar worker from the community noted that he and other persons nearby have been making repeated reports to the power company so that it would fix the problem but to no avail. He revealed that the post, which is leaning on the fence of one family’s yard, was reported since November 2017, but the situation remained unchanged. The sugar worker indicated that some time ago, he nailed a board onto the post in an attempt to alleviate the situation.Other residents told Guyana Times that many children have to traverse the track to attend school, and expressed worry that damage, fire or electrocution could occur if the pole snapped causing the wires to be ripped from the houses.The residents in both Vriesland and La Retraite are hopeful that the power company can rectify the months-old issue.last_img read more
