Suriname beat Guyana 91-84 to retain IGG Basketball title

first_imgSURINAME retained their Inter Guiana Games (IGG) basketball title after winning the second of the ‘best of three’ series yesterday 91-84.Fans who crammed into the Ismay Van Welgin Sports Hall in Paramaribo were entertained by Guyana’s Kevon Wiggins and Timothy Thomas who created much trouble for the Surinamese defence.Guyana trailed for much of the game, until Wiggins and Thomas found some rhythm and clawed Guyana back into the game.Abdullah Hamid’s men had a distinct size advantage with Akeem Crandon and Jermaine King manning the paint, but it was Suriname’s sensational shooting that kept them in the lead.The refereeing also didn’t help Guyana, and their supporters were furious with what they felt was bias officiating.Wiggins, who finished with the game-high 28 points, and Thomas (24), were the players keeping Guyana in the game until Nigel Bowen found his form. Bowen finished with 13 points.The game was exciting, but Suriname kept control of the game, dictating the tempo and flow and would hold on to win another IGG Basketball title.After the game, Hamid didn’t hold back his words and lashed out at the poor officiating.“When you have players going home knowing that they played their best only to have the game decided by referees, it doesn’t look good on the games, and if they can’t fix this issue, then basketball should withdraw until they can find referees from other countries” Hamid said.Known popularly as ‘Zico’, Hamid also told reporters “The guy’s did their best. We shouldn’t had loss the first game, and I think they basically give up after everything they did the referees called against them.”last_img read more

Nearing end of Syracuse career, Frank Howard wants to keep shooting

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 23, 2019 at 10:26 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 To get going, Frank Howard isn’t looking for an early 3-pointer or long jumper. He doesn’t necessarily want to be the spark to the Syracuse offense. He’s not discouraged by a slew of missed shots in recent games or that junior guard Tyus Battle has effectively taken over point guard duties, even when he’s on the floor. None of that.Though he established himself as Syracuse’s starting point guard as a sophomore, Howard lost the job to graduate transfer John Gillon in 2017. As a junior last year, Howard became the floor general he knew Syracuse needed him to be. This season, a preseason injury set him back, and he hasn’t appeared to fully recover since.Syracuse’s (18-9, 9-5 Atlantic Coast) 75-65 loss to No. 1 Duke (24-3, 12-2) in front of a sold-out crowd at the Carrier Dome represented the latest version of Howard. Over the past two seasons, he’s largely avoided turning the ball over. Albeit a costly one, he had only one turnover against the Blue Devils in 34 minutes. He’s averaging eight points and 2.8 assists per game, significantly down from last year (14.4 points, 4.7 assists). Over his last two games, he’s 3-of-13 from the field. He’s followed up an explosion at North Carolina State 10 days ago with back-to-back games in which he’s struggled to find the kind of rhythm he found on a regular basis last season.“Not necessarily a jumper,” Howard said when asked when he needs to find a groove. “That’s just how it’s been. It’s not like I’m focusing on getting a jumper to go. I want to be aggressive. I’ve been aggressive and been in that mindset. I got some good looks tonight off some great rebounds by Marek (Dolezaj) and Paschal (Chukwu).”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAlexandra Moreo | Senior Staff PhotographerWhen Howard scores and keeps turnovers down, he and the SU offense thrive. But he’s been inconsistent in recent weeks, trying to initiate the Syracuse offense with high-ball screens and passes to the wings.He didn’t score against Florida State and went 1-of-10 with three points against Boston College. Then dropped 21 at the Wolfpack. He knocked down a pair of 3-pointers and finished with 10 points Saturday, though he didn’t shoot well in the second half.Howard will not drop 20 points on a nightly basis anymore. His plan A is to pass or try to hit open shots and attack when he can, although he’s not always been able to create for himself off the dribble. He said his confidence hasn’t wavered and he won’t hesitate to create — and take — shots, regardless of his shooting percentage on a given night.Early against Duke, Howard stepped into a pair of jumpers. The first was a 3-pointer from the right wing to kick off SU’s scoring. The Carrier Dome rocked when he drilled the 3, the result of an offensive rebound. Later, Howard knocked down a long jumper from the left wing area, just inside the 3-point line. Duke’s guards were switching on SU screens at first, freeing up Howard.“I think they didn’t like that,” Howard said. “They started downing. They tried to keep me from the foul line, keep the ball out of our hands in that area.”The subtle Duke defensive tweak slowed an SU offense that bounded to an early lead. Howard said he’ll keep shooting, keep looking to create for others, and keep looking for steals atop the 2-3 zone. He knows the clock is ticking, with his Syracuse career winding down in the coming weeks. So, he’ll look to make the best of it.center_img Commentslast_img read more
