All smiles as Happy strikes

By on September 20, 2020

first_img Given a no-nonsense ride by Joseph O’Brien after assuming control from an early stage, the Aidan O’Brien-trained colt answered every call in seeing off the persistent challenge of Penny Pepper by half a length. The stable won the six-furlong affair 12 months ago with the high-class Due Diligence, who went on to be second to Slade Power in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. A son of Rip Van Winkle, The Happy Prince holds an assortment of Group One engagements. “I wasn’t sure about coming back to six furlongs, but he has plenty of speed,” said the winning trainer of the 7-4 favourite. “He’s a little funny when he gets there. It was the same in Limerick as he swerved when he got there. Six or seven is probably his trip.” O’Brien snr followed up when the Seamie Heffernan-ridden Outstanding proved much too strong in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden. The Happy Prince turned in an admirable effort as he defied top weight in the Woodlands 100 Club Handicap at Naas.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Efforts to add fall break underway

By on

first_imgThe Undergraduate Student Government is starting the process of pushing for a fall break after successfully extending the Thanksgiving break to include Wednesday.USG spent two years lobbying to get the administration to make Wednesday part of the holiday weekend.Though many universities, including Stanford and Yale, get an entire week off for Thanksgiving, USG President Monish Tyagi said a fall break in October would be more beneficial.“What we are exploring right now is a fall break to help students make their way through the semester,” Tyagi said.Many students said a fall break would be helpful because it would provide much-needed time off to rest during one of the busiest parts of the semester.“It gives people some time to go home, decompress and get away from the grind for a bit,” said Drew Gerardi, a senior majoring in psychology.Tyagi said the next step for adding a fall break to the academic calendar is to determine the opinions of different groups on campus, such as faculty, administration and students.In an effort to gauge student support for a fall break, USG is in the process of conducting an online poll, the preliminary results of which have been positive, Tyagi said.“Of the students that we have surveyed so far, almost 90 percent were in favor of a fall break,” Tyagi said.Some students, however, said they are opposed to incorporating a fall break into the schedule out of concerns that it will lead to a longer school year.“I would rather not have a fall break because that would extend out the school year,” said Jefferson Trieu, a sophomore majoring in biological sciences.To account for the instructional days that would be lost by adding a fall break, Tyagi said USG will examine several options, including the possibility of starting school earlier in the year.“The next step is looking at all of those options, and seeing what would be best for the university,” Tyagi said.The preliminary pollings have shown slightly less student support for creating a fall break than for the extension of the Thanksgiving break.Nearly 95 percent of students interviewed in a USG survey conducted last school year said they were in favor of having an extra day off for Thanksgiving break.“I think students are very excited about it,” Tyagi said. “It’s nice to have an extra day to travel and not worry about missing classes.”Though the break was widely supported by the student body, many said it would be more beneficial to have the entire week off.Skyler Okey, a junior majoring in communication, said she thinks it would be more beneficial to have the whole week off.“In my high school we had the whole week off and it was absolutely amazing,” Okey said. “I would definitely take a few days extra at the end of school to have the whole week off.”last_img read more

Lakers sign NBA G League veteran Andre Ingram to 10-day contract

By on August 17, 2020

first_imgEL SEGUNDO — In a Chicago airport lobby, Coby Karl put the phone on speaker, and Andre Ingram leaned in to listen.The gray hairs that grace the oldest player on the South Bay Lakers sometimes make Ingram look even older than he actually is. But a flush of youth came to his face when SBL general manager Nick Mazzella told him the Lakers would sign him to a 10-day contract later that day. As his grin spread, teammates mobbed around him and cheered, in a video released by the team. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The past few weeks have been fraught for the Lakers, who have lost five straight games and essentially drummed themselves out of the playoffs. The news has been worse off the court, where Brandon Ingram (deep vein thrombosis) and Lonzo Ball (ankle sprain) are likely out for the rest of the season, and Kyle Kuzma, Lance Stephenson and Tyson Chandler have missed games with injuries.Enter Ingram, who became an overnight sensation last year as a then-32-year-old rookie, scoring 19 points on 6 for 8 shooting in his debut against the Houston Rockets. Overnight, Ingram’s story was one of the most talked-about NBA storylines at the end of another tough season for the franchise, and there was some discussion at one point that his story might be made into a film.For the most part, this season has been a return to earth for Ingram, who averaged 8.6 points and 2.7 rebounds in 35 games in the G League this season. His long-distance percentage has dropped to just above 35 percent from 3-point range this season, but Walton said he expects Ingram to help stretch the floor for the shooting-starved Lakers.“I loved his attitude,” Walton said. “He doesn’t complain. He works hard no matter what. You talk to the G League coaches: Whenever they need him, he’s ready to play. And for us when we played them in the short games, he spaced the floor for us. He  knocked down shots.”KUZMA COULD RETURN VS. BULLSThe Lakers are hopeful that Kyle Kuzma will be back in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Chicago Bulls after missing the last two games with a right ankle sprain.Kuzma (18.8 ppg, 5.6 rpg) was a full participant in practice on Monday morning before the Lakers flew to Chicago. He participated in only parts of practice last Friday before missing a start against the Celtics. The Lakers hope that Kuzma can pack some scoring punch as the team is scaling back minutes for LeBron James in the final 16 games of the year.“He went through practice today, so he looked better,” Walton said. “We’ll see how he feels after this long flight, how he feels tomorrow. But he was a full participant in practice today.”center_img It will be just the second time the 6-foot-3 guard has been called up to the NBA in his 11-year journey through the developmental league. And while the news certainly seemed to mean a lot to the 33-year-old, it might even mean more to a Lakers (30-36) team that is short on both bodies and inspiration.Ingram was to meet the Lakers in Chicago on Monday evening, and Coach Luke Walton said he was pleased to see the well-traveled veteran get another NBA shot.“We always talk about the type of players we want in here, right, the culture we’re trying to build and the way that we work,” he said. “I say all the time I love the way our guys work no matter if it’s a win or a loss, the way we’re competing in practice on off days. So, someone like (Ingram) that we trust that’s going to bring that level of professionalism is something that we need.”last_img read more

Lakers’ Brandon Ingram has rediscovered hope in his recovery from surgery

By on

first_imgAmong the many things outgoing team president Magic Johnson touched on during his resignation, an upbeat attitude about Ingram stood out. He credited Ingram for rising above the fray during trade rumors that tested the Lakers’ locker room.“Before Brandon Ingram got hurt, he was playing (unbelievable),”  Johnson said. “He put together what, three weeks or two weeks – that’s the Brandon, I think if he can get to that level and stay there consistently next year, he’d be like an All-Star.”Ingram is also a believer that he can reach that level, and he said that support from coaches and teammates has helped sustain the hope that he can resume his rise once he returns. Fans have also approached him cold to tell him that they’re praying for him to heal.“That means a lot,” Ingram said. “I think we get so caught up in so much of the negativity. Just to see the positive and see everyone around saying positive things, I think that was good for me.” Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs EL SEGUNDO — It started out as tightness. Then it felt like a pinch, piercing enough that he couldn’t lift his arm above his shoulder.Brandon Ingram’s first instinct was to push through it.“I knew I was going to hear (Luke Walton’s) mouth talking about I was soft when I was coming to the gym,” he said.But Ingram was not soft. He didn’t realize in those early March days that pinch was actually a blood clot, pressing against his nerves, packed into a tight corridor just by his collarbone. If it hadn’t been discovered, it could’ve been a timebomb smaller than a dime – something that could have actually threatened his life.

After the procedure left him without part of his uppermost rib (an anatomically useless portion of the body), he’s not expected to have any more problems with blood clots and should make a full recovery in time to play next season.Still, the diagnosis hit him hard back in March. His initial reaction was the same one many others had: He thought of Chris Bosh, who was essentially forced into retirement because of blood clots. He’s since learned that his condition isn’t really an apples-to-apples comparison, but early on, uncertainty reigned.“When I initially heard about it I was kind of worried,” he said. “I heard people talk about the Chris Bosh thing. I think people around me, they kept me grounded, they kept me smiling. They told me everything was gonna be all right. I didn’t have anything related to Chris Bosh really. His was a little bit worse. In my situation, I’m happy that we caught it early.”The last few weeks, Ingram has been on blood thinners and faced restrictions on what he can do with his right arm. He started physical therapy a week ago, but it’s still going to be a while before he’s doing any basketball activities. He lives in fear of sneezes – they set off jolts of pain in his chest and back as he continues to heal from surgery.Ingram dreams of coming back to the gym. He hasn’t picked up a basketball in more than a month. In the meantime, he quipped, he’s been relaxing “a little too much,” which makes him want to return to the game all the more. Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed center_img “Without basketball, I have no idea what to do,” he said. “Just brings a little motivation. Added motivation. I just don’t take things for granted.”Ingram’s appearance at the Lakers’ practice facility was a rare one since he’s been diagnosed. He hasn’t been seen publicly at the team’s games, practices or shootarounds, and Walton recently said he hadn’t seen Ingram since the procedure.Most of that is his physical pain, which has limited him from getting around too much. But part of that is also the hurt of not being able to join his team.“Just the pain of watching and not being on the floor, I think,” he said. “I’m blessed that everything is going well, but for this to happen, and basketball to be the only thing I’m doing for eight hours a day, it’s a big change.”The Lakers are eager to welcome Ingram back into the fold, particularly if he regains the form he found before he was sidelined. His season-long scoring average (18.1 ppg) was a career-best, but after the All-Star break, he had reached another tier, averaging 24 points while shooting 53.4 percent from the field.Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
