However, fifth-seeded Baylor (20-8) upset the Frogs Saturday to secure a spot in the final.“Today was disappointing and it was disappointing to lose like that,” head coach David Roditi said. “As a coach, we take pride in competing and today we got out-competed and that is the bottom line.”In doubles play, the Bears took the opening match but No. 4 Guillermo Nuñez and Alex Rybakov responded with a victory, leaving it all to play for on court three.Max Kurzban and Reese Stalder escaped with a 7-6 (7-2) win over Baylor’s Will Little and Constantin Frantzen to clinch the doubles’ point for TCU.However, the Bears responded by taking the first three singles’ matches, including Nuñez and Little’s match, which was ended due to a retirement, giving Baylor a 3-1 lead in the match.Stalder took care of Baylor’s Roy Smith on court four, 7-6 (7-2), 6-3 to get the Frogs within one, leaving it up to No. 59 Trevor Johnson and No. 19 Alex Rybakov to complete the comeback for TCU.Johnson and Baylor’s Matias Soto were locked in a nail-biter, but it was Soto who came out on top, 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (7-5) to finish off the upset for the Bears.Up Next:TCU now moves on to the NCAA Tournament and will learn their spot during the selection show which can be watched on at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 1.

Shocks in teen-drinkers study

first_imgNZ Herald 14 December 2013A new study has shown that a major contributor to alcohol-related harm among underage drinkers is their older mates supplying them with large amounts of booze.And experts are urging those who supply youngsters with alcohol to “rethink” and “break the cycle”.The Massey University study was released exclusively to the Weekend Herald just days before sweeping reforms come into effect, including under 18s needing “express consent” from their parents to consume alcohol.From Wednesday, parents will have to provide consent through a phone call, handwritten note or text message before their children under 18 can have a drink at a party or function. If consent is not given, the person supplying the alcohol faces a criminal conviction and $2,000 fine.In the lead-up to the law change, the Ministry of Health funded Massey University researchers to find out more about the “social supply” of alcohol to young people, with a view to developing strategies to reduce social supply in anticipation of this law change.Massey’s director of Social and Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation (Shore), Professor Sally Casswell, said the research revealed underage drinkers being supplied by their slightly older mates was an important contributor to the harm young people experienced from their drinking. read more

Cricket News Former India cricketer VB Chandrasekhar passes away at 57

first_imgNew Delhi: Former India opener and national selector VB Chandrasekhar passed away in Chennai on Thursday following a massive cardiac arrest.The dashing Tamil Nadu left-hander of yesteryears, who was only six days short of his 58th birthday, is survived by his wife and two daughters.Chandrasekhar played 7 ODIs between 1988 and 1990, scoring only 88 runs, but at the domestic level he was prolific for a few seasons, aggregating 4999 runs in 81 games with a highest score of 237 not out.A qualified engineer, Chandrasekhar made his first-class debut at the age of 25 and played in a formidable Tamil Nadu team, which comprised WV Raman, Diwakar Vasu, Laxman Sivaramakrishnan and Bharath Arun.Till a few seasons back, he held the record for the fastest hundred in the Ranji Trophy—a 56-ball ton for Tamil Nadu against Rest of India in an Irani Cup game—that brought him into national reckoning.Unfortunately, his technique was found out during a tri-series in New Zealand in 1990, ensuring that he never played for India again.An astute reader of the game, he was later a national selector when Greg Chappell was the coach and in his later years also did commentary in domestic cricket.“I have done two years of commentary with him and I can vouch that I became better simply interacting with him. His game reading, grip on technical aspects was mind blowing and it is memory I would always cherish,” former India stumper Deep Dasgupta told PTI.“His passion was unmatched and I know he used to spend a lot from his own pocket in a running a team in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) known as VB Kanchi Veerans. It will take some time for this tragic news to sink in,” said Dasgupta.Former India opener Aakash Chopra expressed shock at Chandrasekhar’s death.“Shocked to hear about the untimely demise of V B Chandrasekhar. Was only 57. Went away too soon. Thoughts with the family….heartfelt condolences. R.I.P.,” he tweeted.

Powered by Firework They might be the two current clubs in English football trying to establish themselves as the dominant force in the country but Liverpool and Manchester City are in a great form, performing of the very highest of order every week. Both the players and the managers are paying their respects to the opponents, but there certainly is a rivalry within the staffs and board members of the clubs.Advertisement The British outlet The Times report that Liverpool had to hand over £1million to Manchester City in 2013 as they were accused of ‘spying’. The report claims that several Liverpool employees, who were formerly of Manchester City’s, accessed the latter’s online scouting network without permission. It is also believed that the current transfer guru of Liverpool Michael Edwards, was amongst those involved.Advertisement Manchester City declared a breach in their online system after they brought an outside expert, and the IP addresses linked to that of Liverpool Football Club. City even worked on their contracts with Fernandinho and Jesus Navas as a result, fearing that they may be poached by the Merseyside team.The fine of £1million was paid in September of 2013, although Liverpool still deny of wrongdoing.Advertisement City first became aware about the deal when Liverpool expressed their interest in Paolo Fernandes, a youth player from Real Zaragoza. This report is sure to add to the animosity between supporters of the clubs.  Advertisementlast_img read more

18 days ago​Bournemouth winger Brooks could return in November – Giggs

first_img​Bournemouth winger Brooks could return in November – Giggsby Ansser Sadiq18 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWales boss Ryan Gigga believes that David Brooks is at least a month away from fitness.The 22-year-old Bournemouth star is suffering from ankle ligament damage.Welsh fans were hoping he could be back sooner, but it appears that Brooks could miss the remainder of his country’s Euro 2020 qualifiers.Giggs told BBC Sport: “Even if he was fit, he has been out a long time.”His return is looking around November.”Now whether that’s back playing or back actually training, I’m not too sure. It’s a bit of a difficult one because he was still in a boot in the last camp.”Even if he was fit he has been out a long time. Even if he’s on the bench or fit for Bournemouth the week before, it will be difficult to pick him because he’s been out for so long.”We will see, you never know, there’s still time yet.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
