Hope floats: Future bright for PH ‘3’ as Tokyo beckons

first_imgJury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial “There is promise; there is hope,” coach Ronnie Magsanoc told the Inquirer. “There is actual proof that these four players can compete together and make each other better and stay with the best teams in the world.”The squad of Stanley Pringle, Christian Standhardinger, Roger Pogoy and Troy Rosario bested sixth-ranked Brazil (15-7) and third seed Russia (19-14) in pool play, where it also bowed to more experienced Canada and Mongolia.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“Imagine what can happen if we have a program in place,” said Magsanoc. “Our first real scrimmage was the game against Brazil. The first learning curve was against Mongolia. And again another lesson against Canada, before we managed to regroup and beat Russia.”Magsanoc said the building blocks have already been established for a push for that Tokyo Olympics spot. Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding The Philippines’ last taste of basketball action in the Olympics came in 1972 in Munich, Germany, where the men’s team finished 13th out of 16 teams.“That is the challenge that really gave us the excitement to be a part of this team because the Gilas program is really geared towards landing a spot in the Olympics and this might be another avenue where we can make the Olympics,” said Magsanoc.Rosario pushed for the creation of a pool for the 3×3 event much like the Gilas program: “There’s a pool for Gilas for Fiba 5-on-5 and I think we might need the same with 3×3.”Standhardinger would love nothing more than to keep the squad.“Of course we’ll try to do our all but I hope that all of the organizations involved will give us the opportunity to stick together and I think we showed great promise,” he said. “You saw what this guy (Pogoy] did with the two-pointers. Amazing. He’s made for this physicality, he’s made for 3×3, Troy is made for 3×3 and nobody can stop Stanley. So I think we have a great team.”ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

UEFA explain controversial Champions League VAR calls

first_imgAjax and Manchester United benefited from disputed decisions in sealing dramatic comebacks to eliminate holders Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.The handball given against PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe to award United a stoppage time penalty, which Marcus Rashford converted to complete a 3-1 win on the night at the Parc des Princes and progress on away goals, was branded “a disgrace” by injured PSG star Neymar.Even former United players Rio Ferdinand and Michael Owen said in their roles at TV pundits the penalty should not have been awarded.However, UEFA explained why Slovenian referee Damir Skomina reversed his original decision not to point to the spot having been alerted to watch a replay of the incident by the VAR.“Following the on-field review, the referee confirmed that the distance that the ball travelled was not short and the impact could therefore not be unexpected,” said UEFA’s statement.“The defender’s arm was not close to the body, which made the defender’s body bigger thus resulting in the ball being stopped from travelling in the direction of the goal. The referee, therefore, awarded a penalty kick.”Ajax’s third goal in a 4-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu was reviewed over whether the ball had gone out for what would have been a Madrid throw-in prior to Dusan Tadic’s finish.UEFA said referee Felix Brych was right to award the goal in the absence of conclusive proof the ball crossed the touchline.Porto’s comeback from a 2-1 first leg defeat to beat Roma 3-1 after extra-time was also marked by big VAR calls.The Portuguese side’s winner came from a penalty awarded by VAR three minutes from time.Roma then had a penalty claim of their own turned down when Patrik Schick tumbled inside the area.“Last year we asked for VAR in the Champions League because we got screwed in the semi-final and tonight, they’ve got VAR and we still get robbed,” raged Roma president James Pallotta.However, UEFA insisted on the Schick incident “no clear and obvious error had occurred and that there was no ground for a VAR intervention and an on-field review.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe conceded a penalty for handball after a VAR review in a 3-1 Champions League defeat to Manchester United on Wednesday © AFP / FRANCK FIFELONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 8 – UEFA took the unusual step on Friday to explain a series of controversial Video Assistant Referees (VAR) calls in this week’s Champions League last 16 ties.European football’s governing body bowed to pressure by bringing forward the introduction of VAR into the Champions League for the knockout rounds, having not used the technology for the group stages.last_img read more
