Ubong’s strike against ABS FC of Ilorin was adjudged the best goal of the match-day by online voters in a Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) poll and was presented the award on Wednesday by the Akwa Ibom and Cross River State FIRS Coordinator, Agu Bennet at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.Elated by the recognition, Ubong said he had never won such an award in his career and was delighted that he was beginning to hit the limelight.He said he will share the prize money of N150,000 with the Children Development Centre on IBB Boulevard in Uyo which his club and players have been channeling their charity gestures as part of their community relations.“It is a great thing for me to win this award. I have never received an award like this in my playing career and I am happy that I am the one who has brought it to my club. It is great for me, my family, my teammates, the club and our fans and I am dedicating it to all of them because we are a family.“I will share the proceeds with the Children Development Centre near our camp here in Uyo. That is the only charity I know and that is where we as a club and team mates have been visiting to give support from time to time.“I love children and each time we go there, I remember when I was a child and my younger ones too. I feel very happy that I can personally bring something to them and I thank God for the opportunity. Many of us may have come from homes where our parents have the means to cater for us but when you consider the children at the centre, you are reminded that there are so many children among us who need support from members of the society to go through life. “Ubong who has five goals so far on record this season believes he has just opened a floodgate for more recognition for Akwa United.“I hope to keep scoring this season and I believe my team mates too will score such beautiful goals that will be so celebrated. I believe that Christian’s (Pyagbara) goal today will also win the Wonder Goal Award because it was something you can’t believe. I stood in awe of the effort, the gut and the delivery of that goal and I believe it will count as the best.”Akwa United played Wikki Tourists in a rescheduled Match-day 23 NPFL game at their Nest of Champions ground in Uyo.

Published on November 1, 2013 at 11:23 pm Contact Stephen: email@example.com | @Stephen_Bailey1 Michael Carter-Williams had one of the greatest NBA rookie debuts of all time Wednesday night, but by the end of Friday night, Tyler Ennis had left no doubt that Syracuse’s new court general is fit for the job.After taking an outlet pass from Jerami Grant with four minutes left in the first half, Ennis stormed up the court. Coasting diagonally from right to left, he smoothly maneuvered his way through Holy Family’s 2-3 zone before stopping on a dime on his left foot, turning and banking in a lefty layup.“He did a good job running the show,” small forward C.J. Fair said.Ennis ignited the Syracuse offense in its season-opening scrimmage against Division II Holy Family in front of 8,514 fans at the Carrier Dome on Friday night. He finished with 12 points and three assists in 18 minutes as the Orange cruised to a 79-41 victory. Fair tied for a game-high 13 points — 11 came in the second half — with nine rebounds and a game-high five assists.But it was Ennis who catalyzed the rout. He showcased his deft passing ability to find teammates in their optimal place on the floor while attacking the rim when the opportunity presented itself.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I know where guys like the ball,” Ennis said, “where they can be successful.”With the Orange already out to a 5-0 lead, Ennis took a Fair rebound and raced up the court. Cutting into the lane, he flicked a scoop pass to a curling Trevor Cooney on the right wing. Cooney rose up and drained it 2:09 into regulation.Six minutes later, Ennis penetrated the Tigers’ defense from the left baseline. As Isaiah Gans collapsed, Ennis leapt and dished to Grant for an open 15-footer. 14-2.After corralling one of Alberto Munoz’s seven missed 3-pointers in the first half, Ennis zoomed a three-quarter court chest pass to Grant, who caught it in transition and flipped it in on the reverse.“It’s kind of in the moment,” Ennis said about the move. “You can’t really throw it. You can’t really bounce it. For me it’s the easiest pass.“It’s risky. A lot of times it doesn’t work, but when it does it’s an easy play for your teammate.”The Tigers’ defense stretched and stumbled as Ennis and the Orange shot 44.4 percent in the first half. SU extended its lead to 35-11 with 3:49 left when Ennis canned a 3 on one possession and carved up the Holy Family defense for his coast-to-coast score on the next.By halftime, Ennis was not only Syracuse’s leading assist man, but one of its leading scorers with 10 points on 3-of-3 shooting from the field and 3-of-4 from the foul line.He committed two turnovers – the same total he would finish with – but said it was just a product of playing his first game against opposing players in more than a month.“I saw him make mistakes he normally doesn’t make,” Fair said. “That’s normal for a freshman point guard. Overall, I think he played well.”Ennis played more sparingly in the second half, but turned in one more highlight-reel play before the night was finished.Running out on a Holy Family miss, Ennis hauled in an outlet from Fair and elevated at the rim, going chest to chest with Ervin Ezell.As he hit his peak height and began to decline, Ennis swirled a left-handed circus shot up and straight through the hoops, barely touching the net.Sitting on the bench with eight minutes left in the Orange’s rout, Ennis hung a towel around his neck, loosened his shoelaces and flashed a smile — one he rarely displays on the court.It was only a scrimmage, but he was confident in commanding the SU offense.Head coach Jim Boeheim felt the same way when a reporter asked about Ennis’ performance during his postgame press conference.“He was fine,” Boeheim said. “I don’t even think about him.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

And they made us pay for it.”The Lakers played their seventh straight game without Lonzo Ball, who is expected to test out his knee during an optional practice on Monday.“I will be interested to be in there and watch him work out and see how he is moving,” Walton said.Ball has been limited to light shooting and using a treadmill while recovering from a sprained left MCL. As of Sunday, he had not progressed to lateral movement on the court.

(Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press via AP)ExpandTORONTO – It’s the building where “We The North” has become a rallying cry, where in the second half on Sunday a section of fans unfurled a large black banner reading “North Over Everything.”It was here for the Lakers that things went south.All of the characteristics that helped them win four straight games were absent in their bid for a fifth. Facing a Raptors team making a play for the top seed in the Eastern Conference, the Lakers could not summon enough offensive firepower to compete, losing 123-111 after trailing for virtually the entire game.“It was a hiccup,” Kyle Kuzma said, “but at the same time you can always learn something.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers “He hasn’t started ramping it up as far as the explosive or contact type of work,” Walton said.Despite the four wins without him, the Lakers are desperate for his return.“It will help a lot,” Julius Randle said. “Just his unselfishness, pushing the pace, ball movement. All that is contagious. So it will help a lot. We just got to get back to defending, had a slip up tonight, but we’ll get back to defending.”Against the Raptors, there was little ball movement. The Lakers finished with 22 assists, but nine of those came in the fourth quarter, after the Raptors had built a lead as big as 22 points.And it was Toronto’s backcourt players who did the most damage against the Lakers beleaguered defense. Fred VanVleet scored 25 points off the bench, while Kyle Lowry added 14 points and 11 rebounds.If there was a bright spot, it was the play of Julius Randle in the first half. The fourth-year power forward had 13 points and 10 rebounds by halftime.It was Randle’s 12th double-double of the season and seventh in January. He received a technical foul with 1:46 left in the second half for charging Raptors’ center Jonas Valanciunas after Valanciunas shoved Randle after getting hit in the face while the two competed for a rebound.Related Articles Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs However, Randle scored just four more points in the second half and did not grab another rebound in the nine minutes he played in the second half. Still, his 17 points were a team high.The Lakers made a push in the third quarter, twice cutting the deficit to five points. They trailed 74-67 after Kentavious Caldwell-Pope made a 3-pointer with 5:57 left in the third quarter, but the Raptors’ lead gradually grew from there.It was bound to happen on a night the Lakers shot just 43.5 percent from the field, a number that climbed above 40 percent only after a fourth quarter flurry with the Raptors stars on the bench.After spending another day in Toronto, the Lakers will travel to Orlando for a game against the Magic on Wednesday. They will head south, where they hope things will look up. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years
The most successful head coach of the U-17 national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sakib Malkočević, who achieved a qualification for the European Championship three times, stayed yesterday and today in the FF BH Training Centre in Zenica, where he followed the preparations of the cadets.Malkočević, who now performs the function of scout of all youth selections, is happy that he attended one national team’s gathering after March.“After everything that has happened in the world lately, we have all wished for socializing, matches, gatherings and these days I feel very good here. I am glad to be here again with my colleagues and on the preparations of the new generation of players. I hope that everything will be fine in the autumn and that the boys will play in the qualifications”, says Malkočević and points out that his health condition is better and that he is feeling well.The cadets played a control match yesterday, and Malkočević also conveys his impressions:“Given that they did not gather enough due to the corona situation, and that they did not have enough matches, we can be satisfied with what we saw yesterday. There is certainly a quality that can meet the requirements. Along with players from abroad, we hope that this generation can also reach the elite qualifying round. That should be our goal, and everything above that is a great success.”Sakib Malkočević hopes for good results of the senior national team as well:“It would be a really great thing if both the U-17 and U-19 national teams made a success in the qualifications. We are very much looking forward to the matches of our “A” national team and we all want them to successfully complete the play-offs for the European Championship. Above all, I hope that the players will be healthy and ready for the Nations League and play-off matches. It would be a great thing for our Federation and for the State if the “A” team qualified for the big competition.”
