Celtics stay alive against Knicks, 3-2

leave a comment »

Down 3-1 in a pivotal Eastern quarterfinals playoff matchup, the Boston Celtics rose to the occasion in their defeat over New York Knicks 92-86. Starting off in a deficit 11-0 in the first quarter, the Celtics  outscored the Knicks 45-28 and held a four-point lead at halftime.

Carmelo Anthony, the NBA’s league leader in first quarter scoring, came out shooting “lights out” in the first half but when the Knicks needed him the most, he could not deliver. Without Anthony’s deliverance, the Knicks went through a 2nd half slump in their ability to score.

As a result of the Knicks inability to score, the Celtics took advantage and capitalized on their opportunities. Without start point guard, Rajon Rondo, this required the Celtics other role players to play more of an active role in the offense. In doing so, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry combined for nearly fifty points to put the Celtics over the edge in a close but desperately needed win to keep their chances of winning a NBA championship alive. Jeff Green led all Celtic scorers with 18 points, Brandon Bass with 17 points, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce each with 16 points and Jason Terry pitching in 17 points of the bench.

The Celtics will need another combined team effort to get another win in the series like they did tonight. On Friday, the Celtics will play game 6 of the series in Boston. The Knicks will need the Anthony as well as its other role players to step up to the challenge. If the Celtics can get a win, they would tie the series 3-3.

All in all, no team in NBA history has rallied from a 3-0 deficit to come back to win the series, but Celtics have these plans on their mind.

Brent discusses basketball signing day at Jackson State

leave a comment »

More than a month ago, Jackson State University hired its seventh basketball coach, Wayne Brent. Brent, the previous coach of the reigning 5A- state champion Callaway High School Chargers, has many expectations upon him in a quick time frame.

Having been hired  a little over a month ago, Brent missed a major portion of the basketball recruitment season. JSU men’s basketball team has not been to the NCAA Tournament since 2007; however, Brent has full confidence that he can change the program and take it to the next level.

When asked by the media about signing day, he responded, ” You definitely want to think the guys you are bringing in can get you over the hump, and can maybe one day win you a Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) title. My vision for this is a piece here and there. Even if these five guys came in and played right off the bat, and say they started, you still need a sixth or seventh man, role players to take your program to the next level.”

The signing list is a Jackson-heavy recruitment class. Signees include Javeres Brent and Donta Robinson from Provine High School, Marcus Love and Albert Goss from Murrah High School and one of his very on TreShawn Bolden from Callaway High School.

Bolden, a 6-foot-8 forward from Callaway, is arguably the best in class and what Brent feels gives the team some size in the post. Brent talked Bolden into staying and playing here after he received other offers to play college basketball from Auburn, Louisiana Tech, and Illinois State.

Thus, Brent’s countless vision and his ability to get players to buy into the concept of unselfish basketball will determine the success rate of the team in his first year.

Ice Harvesting!

leave a comment »

This is a video about ice harvesting for the winter. They would cut the ice from a frozen pond or lake and ship it to the stock room where it is kept cold for the selling to others. Farmers would really need the ice back then for milk that they got from a cow and they even used it for ice cream. This ice main use was for food and keeping it cold back then.

leave a comment »

Tully, N.Y., approximately an hour away from Syracuse, N.Y., held an Ice Harvest Festival. During the festival, citizens of the Tully community got to help with the festival as well as learn the steps of which it takes to properly harvest ice. The video provides a distinct sense of direction in how ice harvesting takes place.

Ice Harvest volunteer and Tully native, Gordon Howard, was a faithful volunteer of the Ice Harvest Festival. In the video, he was interviewed in which he discussed the importance of  ice harvesting, how to ice harvest, and the how ice harvesting was used before there were modern-day refrigerators.

Ice harvesting main’s task is to keep things cool for long periods of time. In the past, ice harvesting was used to keep milk cold and any other items that would be necessary for a modern-day refrigerator. Concepts such as ice harvesting paved the way for the refrigerators that we have today.

All in all, the video provides a good explanation and a step-by-step breakdown of how ice harvesting takes place and its importance.

This juicy video has the ex-fiance of Jason Collins discussing how she felt about him coming out of the closet to the world. She discusses their relationship and supposedly future plans.
