Under new coach, Pasaol, UE need time to figure out roles

first_imgNadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity. Pasaol, however, shot only 5-of-18 from the field as he struggled mightily in the last two quarters where UE also crumbled after staying in step with UP in the first half.But dropping just its first game of the season won’t shake Pasaol, who is confident the Red Warriors will be able to get their acts together in the coming games.“Still fine. Maganda naman pinakita namin sa second half despite na tambak kami sa kanila,” he said. “Hindi na kami nakabalik siguro dahil mas under pressure kami kasi tambak na kami.”(Still fine. We did good in the second half even though we fell behind big. We weren’t able to come back because we’re already under pressure.)“Okay naman sila sa sistema ni coach Joe siguro nag-a-adjust lang kasi bagong venue na naman, bagong season. Siguro mga dalawang games, tatlong games,” he added.ADVERTISEMENT But with added experience and new pieces, UE is now looking to share the wealth and alleviate some load off Pasaol with Silva, who replaced Derrick Pumaren at the helm four months ago, calling the shots.“Siguro mas sharing, mas binibigay na namin yung bola sa ibang players para maka-contribute sila. Ayon nahihirapan pa siguro sila sa role nila ngayon,” said Pasaol, whose 49-point explosion was one of the highlights last season.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’(We’re now looking to share the load and give the ball to the other players so they can also contribute.

Ninjas another revival success

first_imgFirst Batman, then Superman and now Ninja Turtles. Who knew? Warner Bros., with its distribution of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, simply called “TMNT,” has completed an unexpected hat trick over the past three years, reviving movie franchises that had long been dormant. “TMNT,” a CG-animated version of a previously live action franchise that hadn’t had a new entry since 1993, emerged from a crowded field of six new wide releases and some popular holdovers to finish in first place over the weekend with a gross of $24.25 million, according to final box office figures released Monday. With Brandon Routh in the role played in the first four movies by the late Christopher Reeve, the big-budget movie opened with a $52.5 million weekend and was immediately labeled an underperformer. But the film had strong legs and eventually reached $200.1 million domestically. When its foreign gross of $191 million is added in, the movie had a worldwide take of $391.2 million. “It’s not an easy task to reinvent and retool a franchise; it’s actually pretty difficult,” observed box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian, president of Media By Numbers LLC. “You are dealing with a lot of built-in expectations and you are also dealing with a bias, in a way, against it. People think it’s been so long, that’s dead.” Not only was Superman thought to be permanently grounded, so was Batman after George Clooney took over the lead role in the fourth movie in what had been a thriving franchise. Clooney’s “Batman and Robin” grossed $107.3 million domestically in 1997, a dramatic drop from the $251.2 million taken in by the first movie, “Batman,” back in 1989 with Michael Keaton as the caped crusader. But “Batman Begins” starring Christian Bale in the title role was critically acclaimed and grossed $205.3 million in the summer of 2005. It took in $166.5 million in foreign markets for a worldwide total of $371.85 million. Warner is not the only studio in the revival business. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, with a low budget and low expectations, released “Rocky Balboa” last December to generally favorable reviews. “Balboa,” headlined by original star Sylvester Stallone, had a so-so $12 million opening weekend. But it displayed some staying power as it reached the $70 million point domestically and another $76.8 million in foreign markets for a worldwide gross of $147.2 million. The “Rocky” movie before that had been released in 1990 and was the fifth film in a franchise that debuted in 1976. “Rocky V” grossed just $40 million Said Gray: “Both `Rocky Balboa and `TMNT’ were smart in that they kept the budgets low.” (818)713-3758 “Considering that we had brought Superman and Batman back, two franchises that had (run) their course, we felt there was another opportunity here,” said Warner’s distribution head Dan Fellman. “The toys were selling and there was a resurgence of interest among young people who have seen reruns or purchased the toys.” While the Ninja Turtle franchise debuted with a bang back in 1990 with an opening weekend of $25.4 million and domestic gross of $135.3 million, the next two movies in the franchise had diminishing returns with domestic grosses of $78.7 million and $42.3 million, respectively. “It’s successful in that it is a revival of a franchise thought to be long dead,” said Brandon Gray, president of Box Office Mojo. “The third movie in 1993 made a third of the first movie. What’s interesting about these revivals is that though many have been popular, they haven’t recaptured the level of popularity of the originals.” While Warner acquired “TMNT” and is distributing it with the Weinstein Co., the studio had reason to feel optimistic about its box office prospects. Last summer, “Superman Returns” had a successful run in theaters despite being the first Superman movie since the megaflop “Superman IV” in 1987. last_img

Beavers end Bears’ home win streak

first_imgBERKELEY – The scoreboard never reflected Oregon State’s domination, so coach Mike Riley couldn’t enjoy an impressive upset until California made its final mistakes. Yvenson Bernard rushed for a career-high 185 yards and the go-ahead touchdown with 6:41 to play, and Oregon State snapped No. 18 Cal’s 10-game home winning streak in a 23-20 victory on Saturday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “It was scary,” said Riley, whose Beavers won at Cal for the second time in three seasons. “They were always in striking distance. … (But) our team never thought we couldn’t stop them, and that we couldn’t move the ball.” With good reason. Bernard rushed 40 times and scored two touchdowns in the second half for the Beavers, whose 35-21 victory at Memorial Stadium in 2003 was the most recent win by a visitor. That Saturday, Oregon State harassed Aaron Rodgers into one of his worst games at Cal – and it did the same to Joe Ayoob this time. Cal has been ranked every week since the 2004 preseason poll, but the Bears followed up their 47-40 loss at UCLA last week with one of their worst efforts in coach Jeff Tedford’s four seasons. After Bernard’s decisive score, Cal had three chances to make a winning drive – but Ayoob sprayed incompletions all over the field, finishing his 13-for-39 performance for 219 yards and two interceptions. Meanwhile, Cal’s vaunted ground game vanished behind an injury-plagued offensive line, ending its streak of 18 games with a 100-yard rusher. Marshawn Lynch rushed for 58 yards, but was benched by Tedford for the second half after two fumbles – and Justin Forsett, the nation’s ninth-leading rusher, had just 17 yards on nine carries. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Beavers (4-2, 2-1) throttled Cal’s vaunted rushing attack and moved the ball easily themselves for most of the day – yet turnovers, penalties and mistakes kept it close. last_img read more

Cong. worker murdered in Ghatkopar, party cries foul

first_imgMumbai: A 45-year-old Congress worker was allegedly murdered at Asalfa in Ghatkopar on Monday morning. While the Congress has called it a political murder and an attack on democracy, the Saki Naka police believe the victim was killed in a road rage incident. Manoj Dubey used to stay with his family in Shivaji Nagar of Asalfa. Dubey, the police said, was found in a severely injured condition near Asalfa Metro station around 1.30 a.m., and was rushed to Rajawadi Hospital, where he died during treatment. After Dubey was identified based on some documents on his person, the police contacted his family.“Dubey’s family told us that he had got into an argument on Facebook after he put up a status saying the next government would be formed by the Congress, which attracted the ire of some local Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers. On Sunday evening, Dubey and a BJP functionary came to the police station and Dubey registered a non-cognisable complaint against the people threatening him. To the best of our knowledge, the matter ended there,” an officer at Saki Naka police station said. Inquiries established that Dubey left his residence after midnight on Sunday to meet someone, and got involved in an accident. “We have found eyewitnesses who saw Dubey drive on the wrong side of the road and hit another car, after which an argument ensued between Dubey and the car owner. Dubey’s murder seems to have occurred during this argument, although we are verifying whether the people threatening him could be behind it,” the officer said. Meanwhile, calling it a murder of democracy, Maharashtra Congress president Ashok Chavan said the BJP has brought in a new tactic of eliminating political rivals by murdering them. “This is not only the murder of a Congress worker but that of democracy. Our nation follows the tradition of discussion over differing views. Goons of the BJP murdered Dubey over his Facebook post,” Mr. Chavan said. Mumbai Congress president Sanjay Nirupam slammed the BJP and demanded action against its party workers involved in the crime. Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil said the murder of the Congress activist merely over a Facebook post is absolutely shameful. “Is this State run by the law or goons?” he asked. BJP denies allegationReacting to the allegation, Mumbai BJP president Ashish Shelar said the government is doing its duty and an FIR has been filed against the accused. “None of them are BJP office-bearers. Above all, the police are investigating. Merely an allegation by the Congress does not prove anything. The law will take its own course,” Mr. Shelar said. Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone X) N.D. Reddy said, “An FIR of murder against unknown persons under the IPC has been registered, and several suspects are being questioned.”last_img read more

Dravid falls prey to debatable umpiring on the current England tour

first_imgRahul Dravid continues to be at the receiving end of controvesial decisions by the  umpires on the current England tour as he was ruled out caught behind on Saturday, despite ‘Hot Spot’ not detecting an edge off his bat. For the third time in this tour that Dravid has fallen to a debatable decision as he was given out twice in the preceding Test series in controversial fashion. However, snicko-meter, which is not part of the UDRS, later suggested that there was a contact between the ball and the bat. Saturday’s decision yet again brought technological shortcomings to the fore under the UDRS system. England paceman Stuart Broad appealed for a catch behind the wicket off his own bowling in the fourth ball of the 18th over but umpire Billy Doctrove ruled not out.Broad opted for a review straight away.Third umpire Marais Erasmus from South Africa took help of ‘Hot Spot’ but even after several replays, the edge could not be established, though a sound was definitely detected.However, much to the astonishment of the fans and the batsman, Erasmus ruled Dravid out. In the third Test, Dravid was ruled caught behind off James Anderson in India’s second innings when his bat actually had hit the shoelace and he hadn’t edged the ball. Then in the fourth Test, he was given out caught behind in India’s second innings. Dravid was ruled not out by the umpire but given out for 13 after referral by England though the snicko-meter apparently showed that there was no contact between the ball and the bat before it landed into home side wicketkeeper Matt Prior’s gloves. Debates and discussions have already started on the decision. Cricketer Aakash Chopra tweeted, “The most reliable tool for DRS is proving the least trustworthy. But I’m more baffled by the quality of umpiring.” “How can d third umpire overturn the on-field umpire’s decision without conclusive evidence to suggest d opposite,” he added.advertisementlast_img read more
