Trojans win with a little pep

first_img• Photo Gallery: USC vs. Stanford LOS ANGELES – If you build it, they will come. At Stanford last month, the Cardinal raced out to a 12-2 lead and beat USC by 15 points. This time, the Trojans came out ready to play, thanks to the speech from Carroll, who told the players not to get pushed around by Stanford again and reminded them that the football team hasn’t lost at home in five years. Young got the Trojans off to a hot start by scoring nine of the team’s first 11 points – including an incredible reverse layup. USC led 15-8 early. RouSean Cromwell made his second start of the season at forward to help match up with Stanford’s 7-foot twin towers of Brook and Robin Lopez. Brook dominated USC inside in Palo Alto with a school-record 12 blocks. Cromwell set the tone early that the Trojans wouldn’t be pushed around again, making two blocks of his own. Greg Pruitt started the team off well in the second half, dishing to Cromwell for a two-handed dunk, then hitting a 3-pointer to put USC ahead 41-30 two minutes in. Stanford made a run, getting within 43-40 on a basket by Robin Lopez inside. Then USC started taking over the game on defense with intensity and quick hands the way Stanford did with its size last month. Pruitt made steals that set up fastbreaks on consecutive plays, scoring on a reverse layup the first time down and then setting up Taj Gibson to make two foul shots. Then Stewart made two steals, the second one leading to a layup from Pruitt to give USC its biggest lead of the game at 58-45. Stanford closed to within three points in the final minute. But Young hit four free throws surrounding an offensive foul by the Cardinal’s Landry Fields to clinch the victory. After the game, Stewart was getting his picture taken with Washington in the outer part of the locker room. “We’re on a mission,” Stewart said. “We know we have a lot of support of Denzel is here.” matthew.kredell@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “Pete Carroll came in, got us pumped up and we fed off that energy,” said Nick Young, who led USC with 22 points. We went out there and tried to play like the football team.” With the victory, USC (20-8, 10-5) moved out of a third-place tie with the Cardinal and avenged its worst Pac-10 loss of the season. The Trojans hadn’t lost consecutive games this season and were following a defeat to Arizona State – previously winless in 14 conference games – making it intriguing how USC would fare against a Stanford team that beat it by 15 points in Palo Alto. “That game just made us wake up,” Lodrick Stewart said of the Sun Devils loss. “If we don’t come and play every night, that can happen.” USC made it to 20 victories for the 16th time in the program’s 100-year history and first since the 2001-02 season – the last time the Trojans made the NCAA tournament. center_img Coming off its most embarrassing loss of the season and going against the one Pacific 10 Conference team it had been dominated by, USC had plenty of support Thursday. Football coach Pete Carroll pumped up the team with a pep talk before the game and Denzel Washington celebrated with them in the locker room after a 69-65 victory over Stanford in front of 9,560 at the Galen Center. last_img read more

Zidane pleads for calm amid Real slump

first_img0Shares0000Real Madrid’s coach from France Zinedine Zidane gestures during the match against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYSMADRID, Spain, Sep 22 – In the space of just five games Real Madrid have gone from red hot La Liga title favourites to trailing rivals Barcelona by seven points ahead of Saturday’s trip to Alaves.When Madrid swept a crisis-ridden Barca aside 5-1 in the Spanish Super Cup last month, Zinedine Zidane’s men were expected to romp to the title. Instead, disappointing home draws against Valencia and Levante were compounded as Real failed to score for the first time in 74 games when Real Betis became the first side other than Barca or Atletico Madrid to win at the Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga for six-and-a-half years on Wednesday.“We have dropped seven points in a small number of games but there is a long way to go and we can’t throw everything we have done until now in the bin because of two or three average games,” insisted Zidane.“I know that many people don’t like this work when things go wrong, but we have to accept it and be calm.“The league is very long and we will stay calm within the group because we will lift ourselves and we know we will have better days.”Going on the road this weekend may come as a relief to Real as they have shone on their travels this season in wins at Deportivo la Coruna and Real Sociedad as well as beating Barca and Manchester United in the Spanish and UEFA Super Cups respectively.“It seems like if we don’t score early at the Bernabeu we start to get anxious,” admitted midfielder Isco.“It is something we have to improve and it is better that it happens now at the start of the season when there is more room for error.”And while Real have endured a rough start to their title defence, Alaves are suffering a nightmare start to the season themselves as they have lost all five matches so far and already sacked coach Luis Zubeldia.“We need to turn the page and think about the next game,” said Real captain Sergio Ramos.“We have come back from many points behind to win the league before. We need to stay calm because they are many games and points still to play for.”There won’t be a Zidane family reunion at Mendizorroza as Enzo Zidane, Zinedine’s oldest son, can’t feature for Alaves due to the terms of his loan move from Real.– Political all-Catalan clash –Madrid can reduce the gap on Barca to four points before the leaders travel to Girona for a first ever Catalan derby between the two in the top flight.Barca’s impressive start to the season on the field has been overshadowed this week as the club condemned the escalating political tension in the region in the build-up to an October 1 referendum on independence organised by pro-separatist politicians.A powerful symbol of Catalonia across the world, Barca called for respect for “democracy, to freedom of speech, and to self-determination.”Fourteen regional government officials were detained on Wednesday as part of the crackdown by the Spanish government on plans for the referendum.With Barca expected to rack up a seventh straight win in all competitions against newly-promoted Girona, attention will be focused as much on demonstrations that could take place by both sets of fans at Montilivi.The most enticing clash of the weekend comes at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday lunchtime as third hosts second when Atletico Madrid welcome Sevilla.Diego Costa is expected to be paraded on his homecoming after Atletico agreed a reported club record fee of 55 million euros ($66 million) to bring the man that fired them to the title in 2013/14 back to the club from Chelsea.Costa won’t be able to play until January, however.Fixtures (all times GMT)SaturdayAtletico Madrid v Sevilla (1100), Alaves v Real Madrid (1415), Malaga v Athletic Bilbao (1630), Girona v Barcelona (1845)SundayEspanyol v Deportivo la Coruna (1000), Getafe v Villarreal (1415), Eibar v Celta Vigo, Las Palmas v Leganes (both 1630), Real Sociedad v Valencia (1845)MondayReal Betis v Levante (1900)0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Three things we learned from the Premier League

first_imgAFP Sport looks at three things we learned from the Premier League weekend:Lampard comes of ageAfter four defeats in their previous five league games, Chelsea made the short trip across London to face Tottenham beset by doubts for the first time in Lampard’s debut season in charge.That run stoked fears about Lampard’s lack of experience in just his second season as a manager, with Chelsea fans hoping he could steer them back to the glory days he enjoyed as a player.But Lampard gave the perfect response, fittingly against the manager who was his mentor when he shone in Chelsea’s midfield.Changing from his usual 4-3-3 formation to a 5-2-3 system, Lampard completely out-witted Mourinho, who was powerless to counteract the switch as Willian’s double confirmed Chelsea will spend Christmas Day in a morale-boosting fourth place.United struggle with the ballPossession problem? – Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks on during a 2-0 loss away to Watford © AFP / DANIEL LEAL-OLIVASManchester United are a Jekyll-and-Hyde team, able to compete against the top sides in the Premier League but with a bizarre blind spot against lower-ranked teams.It was a familiar tale at Vicarage Road on Sunday, with United enjoying the lion’s share of possession against Watford but leaving empty-handed after two defensive mistakes in a 2-0 defeat.United have taken just three points this season from seven matches against Southampton, West Ham, Newcastle, Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Everton and Watford.But they have beaten Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City and held Liverpool to a draw.Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s management, United have won 73 percent of the Premier League games in which they have had less possession than their opponents, compared to just 36 percent when they have enjoyed more.But after the Watford match the Norwegian manager, whose team are eighth in the Premier League and seven points off the top four, said the game hinged on a lack of quality, not possession.“There’s many different reasons for the outcome of a game of football,” he said. “You create chances, you don’t score goals…. It’s got to start with more urgency. We’ve got to play better.”Man City down but not out‘Incredible’ Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne in action during a 3-1 win over Leicester © AFP / Oli SCARFFLiverpool may be well on their way to ending a 30-year wait to be crowned champions of England again but Premier League title-holders Manchester City showed their determination to stay in contention with a win over Leicester that ended the Foxes’ 11-match unbeaten run.Kevin De Bruyne was again in superb form as goals from Riyad Mahrez, Ikay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus saw City to victory after Leicester striker Jamie Vardy had opened the scoring at the Etihad Stadium.City, for all they are within a point of Leicester, are still 11 adrift of Liverpool and have also played one more game than the Reds.But City manager Pep Guardiola insisted: “If we play like we did tonight we can compete with everyone.“Kevin De Bruyne was incredible tonight — he won the game for us.“He has always been incredible since we’ve been together. His commitment is incredible. He’s a spectacular player.”0Shares0000(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Winning feeling – Chelsea manager Frank Lampard celebrates a 2-0 win at Tottenham HotspurLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 23 – Chelsea manager Frank Lampard enjoyed a memorable win over his former Blues boss Jose Mourinho as his side beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in a fiery London derby overshadowed by racism allegations, while Manchester United again succumbed to one of the Premier League’s lesser lights as they lost 2-0 to bottom-of-the-table Watford.Liverpool remained 10 points clear at the top of the table without playing a match — they won the Club World Cup for the first time thanks to a 1-0 victory over Brazilian side Flamengo in Doha on Saturday — when second-placed Leicester lost 3-1 to Manchester City.last_img read more

DONEGAL KILLER ON SUICIDE WATCH AS HE INSISTS: ‘I’M INNOCENT’

first_imgFROM JOHN SMITHSON: A DONEGAL Town man found guilty of the hammer horror murder of a business colleague is on suicide watch after insisting: “I’m innocent.”Robert Johnston – known here in Co Donegal by his middle name Derek – has been jailed for life in England.The two sons he recruited for a “mission to murder” a business associate have also been jailed for life. He and his sons Ben, 27, and Tom, 25, along with colleague Shaun Matthews, 56, travelled to the home of Shaleem Amar, a father of three, intent on killing him with lump hammers.All four were found guilty of murdering the 33-year-old after cornering him in the kitchen of his rented luxury home in Sunningdale, Berkshire, and beating him. Amar was struck at least seven times while covering his face and head in self-defence, the court was told.Police stopped the men in a van on the afternoon of 17 November last year, and found Amar in the back. He was in a rubble bag, covered with sand.The court heard that the men planned to bury Amar in a large hole that Matthews had dug in a 10-acre field, but were stopped by police before they could do so.Amar was bleeding profusely from a wound to his head when he was found, some time after police stopped the van. He was pronounced dead at the roadside despite the efforts of paramedics and a passing off-duty nurse.The Johnstons and Matthews had denied murder but were found guilty by a jury following a six-week trial.Judge Zoe Smith gave each of the four men a life sentence. Johnston senior will serve a minimum of 28 years, with Ben Johnston given a minimum sentence of 25 years and his younger brother 20. Matthews will serve at least 25 years before he is eligible for parole.The Johnstons, all from Pampisford, Cambridgeshire, and Matthews, from Whittlesford, Cambridgeshire, did not react as they were sentenced.Shortly after the crime was committed, Amar’s wife – who was living nearby at the time – arrived at Tresanton, her husband’s rented home. She unwittingly walked past the van in which her husband lay wounded, a fact which she said tortured her every day.Amar and the Johnstons were involved in a multimillion-pound fraud and the motive for the murder was greed, the prosecutor Noel Lucas QC said. The fraudulent business claimed VAT on goods it “sold” that did not actually exist.Lucas said the way Amar was killed could be “likened to torture” and added that for Johnston senior, the matter was made worse by “the fact that he took his two sons with him on a mission to murder”.The judge told Ben Johnston as she sentenced him: “Your character witnesses have described you as a man who is non-violent, but it must therefore have been out of loyalty to your father that you were involved in such a deadly plan.”She also noted that Tom Johnston could be described as a “secondary party” to the murder.However sources close to his dad Derek told donegaldaily.com that he was “completely innocent.”The source said: “Derek has threatened to kill himself rather than stay in jail for the next 28 years. It means he will almost certainly die in prison.“He is sticking to his story; he did kill Amar but it was in self defence after he pulled out a gun.”CAPTION: Robert Johnston, known as Derek, aged 57, (top left) and his two sons Ben, aged 27 (top right) and Tom, aged 25, (bottom left), all of Town Lane, Pampisford, Cambridge, along with a fourth man Shaun Matthews, aged 56, (bottom right), of Duxford Road, Whittlesford, Cambridge, were found guilty of Mr Amar’s murder following a six-week trial at Reading Crown Court.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comDONEGAL KILLER ON SUICIDE WATCH AS HE INSISTS: ‘I’M INNOCENT’ was last modified: December 28th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CONVICTED MURDEREDEREK JOHNSTONDonegal Townhammer killingmurderROBERT DEREK JOHNSTONlast_img read more

MEN ESCAPE LOSING DRIVING LICENSES AFTER SCORING 100% ON DRIVING COURSE

first_imgTwo specialist mechanics who were caught racing on a dual carriageway have escaped losing their driving licenses after getting top marks on a new driving awareness course.Friends Jamie Cunningham and James Spratt were caught by Gardai doing more than 150km/hr on the dual carriageway outside Letterkenny.Pursuing Gardai could not catch the men because they were going so fast. The men were later charged with dangerous driving.The mechanics were later ordered to carry out the Pro Social Drivers Programme aimed at rehabilitating drivers.Both men appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday where the court heard they had both scored 100% on their tests on the programme which aims to encourage safer driving.The court heard the men also have modified cars which they use at weekends as well as a VW Passat and Jetta which they use during the week.Judge Paul Kelly told the men they were lucky but that the incident could have resulted in tragedy.He then agreed to reduce the charge from a Section 53 of dangerous driving to Section 52 of careless driving.But he warned both men: “You are extremely lucky to be leaving court with your licenses and I hope you have learned a salutary lesson.“If I see you here again on driving matters you will lose your license.”MEN ESCAPE LOSING DRIVING LICENSES AFTER SCORING 100% ON DRIVING COURSE was last modified: February 6th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:carsJudge Paul KellyLetterkenny District Courtmechanicslast_img read more
