The Orange won three games in three days and beat two ranked teams, matching last season’s total. Here are three quick observations from the win.Can’t be trustedMichael Gbinije picked up an offensive foul with 14:08 to go in the first half. It was his second foul of the game. His continued presence in the game might have jeopardized his ability to play in the second half, but Syracuse’s backup point guard stayed right on the bench. Kaleb Joseph played only four minutes of Syracuse’s 79-76 win over Connecticut. On Friday, he played limited minutes in the first half. On a transition steal by Trevor Cooney, a pass to Joseph went off his fingertips and out of bounds for a turnover. A timeout was called and Boeheim screamed at Joseph on his way back to the bench. Moments later he was subbed out for Malachi Richardson. Glass half fullAdvertisementThis is placeholder textA night after Richardson said he found himself in the second half despite playing his worst brand of basketball in the first half, the freshman wrote a similar narrative. He scored just three points on 1-of-5 shooting in the opening 20 minutes, but scored SU’s first seven points out of the break. He connected on four free throws, the first of which came when he was the victim of a flagrant foul on a drive to the basket. Later, he showed poise in going up and under on an and-one layup that tied the game.Richardson finished with 16 points in the contest. Floor-Boards Syracuse was dominated on the glass on Friday, getting out rebounded 39-31.  Jim Boehiem called the Aggies the biggest and strongest team he’s ever seen after SU’s win on Thursday. They lived up to the hyperbolic billing as Syracuse overcame the struggles on the boards.The second-chance points didn’t burn the Orange too badly. On one play in the second half, Texas A&M had four opportunities to score in the span of a few seconds. The final rebound ended in Lydon’s hands. Syracuse caught the breaks on Friday and executed as well in the win.  Commentslast_img read more

first_imgIt was good to be back on this great course, particularly the A & B nines, always a great favourite. Over the last 10 years, Khao Kheow has been the most regular venue for the PSC Club Championships, with only a couple of visits to Burapha and one last year at Bangpra. Mike, the Burapha GM, gave us an excellent rate for the two days as well as granting us permission to walk the course, even though one or two caddies found it a bit difficult.The course was in its usual pristine condition, which was well appreciated by many and together with excellent golfing weather, all was set for a great day out.Tim and his team collected the cards at the end of the day and. ably assisted by Treasurer John Player’s computer skills, Tim set about producing the starting times for Wednesday until late in the evening, ready for the girls in the PSC office to prepare all the cards.Gross Runner Up – Jack Grindvold.Congratulations to participants on Wednesday, who all arrived on time. For the stroke players, they were pushed back to the blue tees just to give them a little more of a challenge, particularly with their short game as it was not so easy to reach all the par 4s in two.Jack Grindvold, playing off 5, was definitely the pre-tournament favourite, having won the previous two years; however, there were a couple of other low markers who had other ideas. In the end, Jack said he messed up one hole in particular which cost him his hat-trick, losing by one shot to Jan Andersson on 154. Peter Nixon took the Day 1 stroke win with 76 and Dave Stockman, who admitted he wasn’t all that keen to play from the longer blues on Day 2, surprised himself with a very fine 75.Stableford Plate Winner – Reijo Heiskanen.Reijo Heiskanen had an amazing overall Stableford score of 89 to take the trophy with Pierre Zbinden, the runner-up on a very respectable 84. Overall stroke (net) went to Richard Kubicki on 143 with Dave Smith taking 2nd on 144, on c/b from Tommy Wickman.The newly appointed general manager at the Amari in Pattaya offered the PSC a great deal to host the presentation and they definitely did not disappoint, providing us with a first class service and a fine spread of food, including a lovely choice of tempting desserts.After everyone had enjoyed refreshments it was time for the presentation and announcement of the results.Stableford Plate Runner-Up – Pierre Zbinden.Nigel called order and welcomed all the introduced PSC President Peter Malhotra who expressed his appreciation for the support shown by PSC members to the benefit of many local charities.Jack then took over to announce the results, keeping the staff on the run, distributing the many prizes to be awarded, as quickly as possible.NOTE: The next PSC tournament will be a 2 person scramble at Parichat on Tuesday 18th Feb for a 9.30am shotgun start.
