Interview: Owners Lack Trust in BWMS Technical Capability

By on September 28, 2020

first_imgImage Courtesy: Ballast Water CentreAs the entrance into force of the Ballast Water Management Convention (BWMC) approaches, the industry’s sentiment on retrofitting ships with BWM systems seems to shift more to the negative side, based on several industry bodies World Maritime News spoke with.Speaking on the preparedness of shipowners to comply with the new requirements, Yildiz Williams, Senior Marine Consultant, Marine & Offshore, Lloyd’s Register, says that the majority of shipowners are ready in terms of paperwork preparedness – they either already have or are in the process of getting their ballast water management plans ready and approved and getting their internal ballast water management certificates issued.However, in terms of getting ready for the D-2 standard there is generally a lower level of preparedness, but this is because it’s not an immediate requirement after entry into force, following IMO’s decision at MEPC 71 to delay dates for the D-2 standard compliance.Based on LR’s prediction there are about 30,000 vessels that will need to retrofit.“There is a growing number of owners that have fitted systems onboard their vessels and are actively operating their ballast water treatments systems (BWTS) to ensure reliability and crew familiarity,” Thomas Kirk, Director, Environmental Performance, Global Marine, ABS, commented.On the other hand, according to Williams, the biggest concern that the shipowners have is the lack of trust in the technical capability of the ballast water management systems available.This is among the key reasons behind owners’ unwillingness to invest in retrofits, as explained by Williams: “because shipowners don’t see this as a benefit to them.”“However they have to invest to comply with the requirements. If they cannot comply then they cannot operate.”“They want to ensure that the system can operate in different conditions and that it can operate without breaking down. Owners probably do not want to scrap their vessels early so they are willing to invest in retrofits because they want to be compliant,” she added.Speaking from an engineering perspective Kirk says that the engineering involved in retrofitting a BWM system is far from trivial.“Space is a major constraint as are available power and hydraulics. This means that the team must first identify what space and how much power is available, which must be done before determining which systems will be suitable and provide the requisite flow rates. The configuration of ballast tanks is an important factor, especially with respect to the ability to perform treatment or neutralization during discharge.“Owners must consider the impact of treatment during ballasting. Similarly, many systems place constraints on vessels for additional treatment or neutralization during de-ballasting. Owners should also carefully consider the trade and ballast profile of their vessel when determining the best fit from the available technology.”With regard to space-related constraints, Williams said that there are companies that deal with fitting these systems.“But still we encourage our clients to speak to manufacturers and the installation companies early on to understand whether a system is suitable for their technical and operational profile. It is a challenge but it’s not impossible and it can certainly be done and the impact can be reduced if it is well planned in advance. Of course, the ship’s operability will be affected to a certain extent. We also encourage them to speak to us very early on as there are particular class requirements that need to be met as well. LR offers a range of services to the industry on how to select a suitable system and fit it with the least impact,” she added.One of the key issues to be tackled is the training of personnel on how to operate the new equipment, once the BWM systems are installed.  “Proper training forms an essential element of a well-implemented ballast water management plan. Some companies have indicated that they are sending their shoreside management as well as their senior officers to vendor-specific training. Others are looking at computer-based and/or video training. Some owners are already in the initial phases of establishing criteria to verify the competency of those trained,” Kirk noted.“As part of a BWM plan all owners and operators must have a training plan in place, this is a mandatory requirement. They have to ensure personnel are trained and that a ballast water management officer is on board – this is not necessarily a person as it is a rank, so if one person leaves then there is a continuity of the BWM officer. It is their responsibility to ensure that the crew onboard are familiar with the requirements of the Convention and if they have a system on board, that they understand how to operate it. LR encourages our clients to speak to the manufacturers early if they are fitting a system so that they are well trained to use it,” Williams cautioned.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Preview: Ghana v Nigeria today – All Africa Games to see football rivalry rekindled

By on August 28, 2020

first_imgIt’s going down in Congo Brazzaville.Nigeria coach Samson Siasia has boasted of a quality team capable of first beating Ghana on Wednesday and then going all the way to win gold at the 2015 All Africa Games.The Dream Team will be playing their first match of the competition against the defending champions having sat out the opening round due to Egypt’s withdrawal.Nigeria are however without some of their key players with the likes of Shehu Abdullahi and Godwin Savior not released by their European clubs for the games being staged in Brazzaville, Congo.Taiwo Awoniyi has also been excused to allow him settle at his new club Liverpool.But Siasia (below, pictured) remains confident he has a good enough team to go all the way. “We have a team capable of winning the gold medal for Nigeria,” he said.“It’s true we are going to miss some players but we have enough to help us do the job, we promise to do our best.”Ghana are already on one point after drawing goalless with Senegal in the Group B opener over the weekend.Lartey is bullish Captain of the Black Meteors, Lawrence Lartey, is not giving a quarter .This game comes after a poor display against Senegal in their opening fixture which ended in a goalless draw last Sunday.Black Meteors’ quest to defend the gold medal they won last four years will be under severe scrutiny as games between Ghana and Nigeria are very difficult to predict due to their traditional rivalry.But Lartey, who was part of the team that won gold in Mozambique, is eyeing a win. “Everyone knows that games between Ghana and Nigeria are always difficult but we will do our best to win and qualify,” Lartey told Peace FM. The national U-23 Skipper continued: “It was not the kind of result we expected against Senegal. But we didn’t lose, we drew so we still have a another chance.“That is the only chance we have now, so we will do everything possible to win the game.”Game kicks off at 1300GMT.No jokes Both nations have met at U-23 level four times with Nigeria claiming two victories over Ghana’s lone victory. A match has also been drawn at this stage.Their first meeting was in July 2007 in an Olympic Games qualifier which Nigeria won 3-2 while the return leg of the qualifier was played in November 2007 and it ended in a goalless draw.The two matches were handled by Siasisa.The two teams have met at the AAG qualifiers before. In 2011 Nigeria defeated the Black Stars 3-1 while the return leg in July 2011 was won 2-0 by Ghana, hence denying Nigeria a chance in the 2011 AAG. Star forward Etebor Oghenekaro has spoken ahead of the match: “We are fully prepared for the game, we are going for victory and by His grace, we will get the victory.“Ghana are always tough against Nigeria, we are not bothered as we are ready for them. I am calling on Nigerians to support and pray for us wholeheartedly, we won’t disappoint them.”Nigeria meanwhile won the AAG gold in 1973 as host nation.–Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmith.

FIFA chief heading for trouble over pet projects

By on August 13, 2020

first_imgKigali, Rwanda | AFP | FIFA President Gianni Infantino is set to ignite new opposition Friday over his ambition to introduce two money-spinning pet projects — a revamped global club cup and a bold new international championship.Infantino’s Saudi-backed plans, which have already been harshly criticised, are on the agenda of Friday’s meeting of FIFA’s ruling council.It is unclear whether the council’s 37 members will vote on the projects, giving world football’s governing body authorisation to implement them.But opponents are already sharpening the knives, deploring the proposed introduction of new competitions in an overcrowded football calendar while also targetting Infantino himself, accused of seeking to win votes ahead of his re-election bid in June next year.The World Leagues Forum, which groups professional football leagues, has expressed its strong opposition to the proposed Club World Cup format and the Global Nations League in the past.This week the influential body addressed a letter to Infantino signed by English FA chief Richard Scudamore and his Bundesliga counterpart Christian Seifert among others demanding that no decision be taken in Kigali. It also lamented the lack of any consultation between FIFA and the leagues.Forum members apparently accuse Infantino of going behind their backs directly to a few top clubs to discuss the plans for the club competition while the European Clubs Association issued an appeal to FIFA several months ago, apparently unheeded, for talks.UEFA boss Aleksander Ceferin has complained of FIFA’s “strange” behaviour while UEFA, speaking via the powerful Professional Football Strategic Council (PFSC), issued a statement expressing concern about the whole process.It said the PFSC “unanimously expressed serious reservations about the process surrounding the FIFA Club World Cup and Global Nations League proposals and in particular the hasty timing and lack of concrete information”. – walkout? –The 17-member PFSC is led by Ceferin and includes Nasser Al-Khelaifi, president of Paris Saint-Germain, and Ed Woodward, vice-chairman of Manchester United, two clubs who attended a meeting at which Infantino presented his plans to Europe’s biggest clubs.Ill feeling has reached a point where UEFA delegates may even stage a walkout if their views go unheeded at Friday’s Council meeting, according to the New York Times this week.Infantino is pushing to revamp the Club World Cup, boosting it from seven clubs to 24 in a four-year format, 12 of them European. Currently, the competition which elicits little interest outside of Latin America is played every year.His other project is to launch a biennial league tournament for nations, the Global Nations League, a sort of mini-World Cup with eight national teams competing.Infantino says he has an offer of $25 billion over 12 years for the two competitions from a group of investors, which the Financial Times has identified as SoftBank from Japan, backed by Saudi Arabia among others.That money, he promises, will be redistributed to clubs and continental football federations.Football historian Paul Dietschy told AFP the new club competition was clearly an attempt to pull the rug from under UEFA’s highly lucrative Champions League.“The Champions League will survive,” he said, but FIFA “will snatch away some of its income.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Future Uncertain For Concrete Pavilion

By on August 4, 2020

first_imgBy Joseph SapiaHIGHLANDS – What will happen to the controversial Super Storm Sandy memorial sitting on borough property between Sandy Hook Bay and the Robert D. Wilson Memorial Community Center?The 1,104-square-foot gazebo’s basic history: It was constructed by the Tilt-Up Concrete Association, a trade group, with borough permission in the fall; became controversial because of its, well, concrete-y look – and dubbed “Shorehenge” by some, because it kind of appears as a modern-day Stonehenge; and, in December, the state Department of Environmental Protection informed the town the project needed an OK, which it never got, through the state Coastal Area Facilities Review Act.Based on much discussion at the Jan. 20 Borough Council meeting, no one seems to be blaming the Iowa-based Tilt-Up for putting up the monument – constructed with donated goods and equipment valued at $250,000, along with donated labor.Perhaps there will be answers to its future sooner than later.At the Jan. 20 meeting, Council President Carolyn Broullon concluded the borough, as the monument’s responsible party, will look into the cost to keep the monument in place – $3,000 for a CAFRA permit for starters – and the cost to take it down – $15,000 to $25,000 for starters, said Councilman Doug Card.“Both things will be researched,” Broullon said.Some of this information may be ready for the next council meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 3. But Borough Attorney Bruce Padulla said the matter could wind up in litigation.As for residents, some are for the concrete pavilion, some are against it.“I think it’s ugly,” said Colleen Kriessler, 50. “It doesn’t belong there, it takes away from the appeal of the beach, I guess.”Wallace Hartsgrove, 72, and Kerry Gowan, 53, thought the value of the structure could have been better applied into helping the borough as it continues to rebuild from the devastation of the October 2012 Sandy.Hartsgrove, whose house was destroyed, said the money should have been used to help people in town, especially those whose houses had been affected by Super Storm Sandy. “There’s a lot of stuff they could do in this town,” he said.Gowan’s house also was damaged. She said she was thankful for the thought behind the gift of the monument, but, “I just think that money could have been used somewhere else, helping the town.”In a written statement, Diane Kropfl and her husband, Bill Sabanski, said, “It is now the responsibility of the borough to fulfill the obligation on its part in consideration of the generous donation provided to our community, to ensure the continued existence of this structure.”The couple is “willing to make a donation to a public fund to offset costs to the borough for the permits required to keep this monument in its current form and location.”“I think it would be imprudent to remove it,” said Carol Bucco. “They (Tilt-Up) thought they did the right thing. These guys are innocent.”Arnie Fuog, 60, said “I don’t mind the monument,” but he did not like the “undercover” route he believes it took.In January 2015, the Borough Council voted 4 to 0 on a resolution approving a Tilt-Up proposal to build a Sandy memorial “at no cost to the borough.” The resolution called for plans to be submitted to the borough for review.While all of this seems to have happened properly, at least some seem to have been under the impression nothing had been formalized to go ahead with the monument.The idea for the concrete Super Standy monument goes back to about November 2014, said Borough Administrator Tim Hill. Tilt-Up was looking to do a community project in anticipation of its annual meeting, scheduled for the fall of 2015 in New Brunswick.Hill said three sites were under consideration: Veterans Memorial Park, Huddy Park, or behind the Community Center. “There were council members” aware of the project and selected location, Hill said.“The monument was solely built to honor the people that lived through Sandy,” said Fred Anton, who grew up in neighboring Atlantic Highlands, is in the construction supply business, and was a liaison between Tilt-Up and Highlands.The borough said a CAFRA permit was not needed, because the monument would replace an A-frame gazebo, although not in the exact footprint, Anton said.“All this was approved from the town,” said Bob Murray, who lives in Somerset County and was the project manager. “This is a case of buyer’s remorse. We got a green light to do this.”Once the warm season comes, Tilt-Up was to finish the project by painting it with a white protective paint, Murray said. Also, Tilt-Up was thinking of having a “grand opening,” a community celebration of the monument, Murray said.Now, the monument’s future is unclear.Mitch Bloomquist, Tit-Up’s executive director, said the approximately 400-member association would be “interested if they (Highlands officials) want to go for that (CAFRA) permit.”“We’d be happy to coordinate a donation for that,” Bloomquist said.But Bloomquist told the Council that Tilt-Up would not pay for the monument’s removal.“Whether it should be removed should be up to the community,” Card said. “I don’t think we should apply for a (CAFRA) permit at this time. I can’t have open dialogue without complete information.”Councilwoman Claudette D’Arrigo said she was concerned with environmental issues regarding the placement of the monument on the beach. Now, the Borough Council has to look at the issue as a community, Broullon said.“We’re not going to take action without adequate feedback,” Broullon said.“I understand people don’t like it,” Murray said. “(But) I’ve gotten a few emails from people who do like it.”last_img read more

first_imgELLIOTT RECALLS SMARTY JONES’ DERBY VICTORYHORSEMEN FANCY NYQUIST IN RUN FOR THE ROSESCLOCKER SAYS NYQUIST IS ‘NOT A WEAK FAVORITE’MELATONIN, STELLAR WIND TO BREEZE TOMORROW TRAINERS FANCY NYQUIST IN RUN FOR THE ROSESAt a race track, opinions are as plentiful as lost dog signs on street lamp poles in the San Fernando Valley. They’re everywhere.That’s the case with the Kentucky Derby a heart beat away, as judgments from most Santa Anita-based horsemen in a random sampling centered on undefeated Nyquist trained by hometown boy Doug O’Neill winning the 142nd Run for the Roses, to wit:Paul Aguirre: I’m a big Nyquist fan. I can’t go beyond him. I love that horse.A.C. Avila: It’s wide open. It’s a jockeys’ race.Alexis Barba: Nyquist, but if it rains I’d throw (Paddy) Gallagher’s horse (the maiden Trojan Nation) in there. A horse I trained, Make Music for Me, was a maiden at 30-1 when he ran fourth in the 2010 Derby over a sloppy track, beaten only five lengths (by Super Saver).Ray Bell: You have to like Nyquist, with Exaggerator and Mor Spirit. Mo Tom has the right style at a price.David Bernstein: I’m a Nyquist fan until they beat him. He’s got a good post.Jim Cassidy: Nyquist, I guess.Ben Cecil: (With a Cheshire cat smile adorning his face)–Do I have to say? Nyquist, and I genuinely like him, not just because I train for Paul Reddam (owner of the colt).Vladimir Cerin: Nyquist.Caesar Dominguez: Nyquist and Exaggerator, with Victor Espinoza (Whitmore) third.Neil Drysdale: Nyquist, if all is well.Michael Ewing: Nyquist is straightforward. If it’s an off track, Exaggerator can do it.Jerry Fanning: Nyquist. The rest is wide open.Victor Garcia: O’Neill.Mark Glatt: Exaggerator. I liked the way he ran in the Santa Anita Derby and the pace probably sets up for him.Jorge Gutierrez: Nyquist and Exaggerator.Dan Hendricks: I’m leaning towards Creator.Jerry Hollendorfer: Nyquist, and I hope he (O’Neill) wins the Oaks (with Land Over Sea, who finished second to unbeaten champion Songbird trained by Hollendorfer in five straight races).David Hofmans: I’m pulling for Exaggerator. He’s trained by a small guy (nationally, Keith Desormeaux), but Nyquist is the real deal.Steve Knapp: Nyquist. He’s done everything right.Brian Koriner: I’m a hometown guy. I like Nyquist. Everyone says racing in California is no good, but come Derby time, it’s all right. (Southern California-based horses have won the Derby three of the last four years: I’ll Have Another, 2012; California Chrome, 2014; and Triple Crown winner American Pharoah last year).Eric Kruljac: I’m rooting for all the California boys. I would love it if Cliff (Sise Jr., Danzing Candy) could win it. Talk about a comeback story.Ian Kruljac: Nyquist.Craig Lewis: Nyquist, but if Danzing Candy gets an uncontested lead, he can make it.Mike Machowsky: Gun Runner. I was impressed with his win in the Louisiana Derby, and at least he’ll offer a little value. I like (Dale) Romans’ horse, too (Brody’s Cause).Gary Mandella: Gun Runner.Alfredo Marquez: Nyquist and Exaggerator.Ron McAnally: I’ve got to go with The Genius (Bob Baffert and Mor Spirit). Either him or Asmussen (Creator).Jeff Metz: Nyquist and Exaggerator.Steve Miyadi: Sise (Danzing Candy) wire to wire.Kristin Mulhall: Exaggerator.Hector Palma: I have to like Nyquist. He never lost.Dean Pederson: It’s hard to go against a horse like Nyquist that has a bunch of ones next to his name.Mike Pender: Mo Tom. He was sawed off in his last three starts and had no chance. It’s time to show his colors.Jorge Periban: Nyquist. He’s been running great.Marcelo Polanco: Exaggerator. I like the way he won in the slop and he’s got a smart rider (three-time Derby winner Kent Desormeaux).Mike Puype: The two California horses, Nyquist and Exaggerator.John Sadler: I’ve got to pick Nyquist. I think he’s the best horse. For a longshot, Suddenbreakingnews.John Shirreffs: Nyquist.Gary Stute: Nyquist. He hasn’t done anything wrong yet.Eddie Truman: Nyquist is not only my Kentucky Derby pick, he’s my Triple Crown pick. I’m going all in.Tim Yakteen: Nyquist. I’m going with the favorite.Howard Zucker: Nyquist. FESTIVE DERBY DAY ACTIVITIES AT SANTA ANITASanta Anita will host the “Biggest Derby Party West of Kentucky,” the KROQ Kentucky Derby Beer Festival, in the track’s spacious Infield Area on Saturday.In addition to the Run for the Roses, Santa Anita will offer fans a full card of live Thoroughbred action, with first post time at 12 noon, when admission to the KROQ Beer Festival will begin. Approximate post time for the Kentucky Derby is 3:34 p.m. PDT.            For those wishing to spend Derby Day on the Trackside Apron, Santa Anita in partnership with KROQ will offer a Kentucky Derby Trackside Package that includes Club House admission, a drink voucher (must be 21 or over), a racing program and tip sheet, access to Trackside and reserved Grandstand seating areas and an American Pharoah Tote Bag.            For more information on the KROQ Beer Festival or to purchase tickets online, please visit santaanita.com/events.FINISH LINES: Trainer David Hofmans has Santa Anita Handicap winner Melatonin scheduled to breeze Saturday in pursuit of the Grade I, $500,000 Gold Cup at Santa Anita for three-year-olds and up at 1 ¼ miles on June 25 . . . Stellar Wind, who could meet Beholder in the Grade I Vanity Mile June 4, also is scheduled to work Saturday, five furlongs at 6:30 for John Sadler. Thus the Vanity could match a pair of champions, since Stellar Wind won an Eclipse Award as outstanding Older Female last year and Beholder, at age six, has three Eclipse Awards on her gaudy resume and Richard Mandella is on record as having the Vanity as a target for Beholder after Sunday’s Adoration Stakes. “Stellar Wind will have four works before the Vanity,” Sadler said. “She’s right on schedule.” Beholder is Jon White‘s 1-9 morning line favorite to win the Adoration against five rivals . . . With the NHL playoffs well underway, the Stanley Cup will arrive at Doug O’Neill’s Churchill Downs base Saturday morning where at 6:30 a.m. Nyquist will drink from the historic trophy at Barn 41. . . With several locally-based jockeys at Churchill Downs Saturday, agent Mark North, not to be confused with the comic strip character of yesteryear, Mark Trail, has Stewart Elliott named to ride in nine of the 11 races at Santa Anita tomorrow . . . Thursday was the first day of the Spring Meet and already there’s a Pick 6 carryover in the amount of $32,393. Friday’s total pool is expected to approach $250,000 . . . Frank Scatoni, author of Six Secrets of Successful Bettors, will be Tom Quigley‘s guest Sunday, 11:20 a.m., in the East Paddock Gardens . . . Jockey David Lopez, having withdrawn his appeal of a suspension issued Feb. 5, will serve his time May 12, 13 and 14 . . . The date for the California Horse Racing Board monthly meeting has been changed from May 19 to May 26 at Santa Anita. The agenda for the session, including starting time, will be posted on the CHRB website by May 16 . . . Santa Anita offers a $300,000 guaranteed Late Pick 4 pool every weekend during the Spring Meet, and a $500,000 guaranteed Late Pick 4 and a $100,000 guaranteed Pick 6 every Saturday and Sunday. ELLIOTT FAVORS NYQUIST, FIRST TURN CRUCIAL            Stewart Elliott’s signature victory came in the 2004 Kentucky Derby on Smarty Jones. Twelve years later, the Toronto native, now 50, is still doing what he does best, riding horses, now at Santa Anita, but his memories of the Derby triumph are as vivid as California sunshine.“It poured right before the race,” Elliott said of the 2004 classic. “The storm was so bad, the race was delayed, and my horse had never run in the slop. We didn’t know what to expect.“The key thing in the Derby is getting a good position going into the first turn. You’ve got 20 horses running into that turn and everybody’s trying to get a spot. That’s what won the race for me. Smarty Jones wasn’t a real big horse and he was in between horses that had him in tight, but I asked him to stay in there and he did.“If he had hesitated on me, it would have been over just like that.”As for Saturday’s Derby, Elliott said Nyquist has much in his favor.“I think Nyquist has a good post (13),” he said. “It could have been worse. If he’d have gotten the one, it might have been a little tough, but with where he’s at, he’s the horse to beat.“There are definitely other strong horses in there, but they’ve got Nyquist to beat.”The 20-horse lineup for the 142nd Kentucky Derby: Trojan Nation, Aaron Gryder, 50-1; Suddenbreakingnews, Luis Quinonez, 20-1; Creator, Ricardo Santana Jr., 10-1; Mo Tom, Corey Lanerie, 20-1; Gun Runner, Florent Geroux, 10-1; My Man Sam, Irad Ortiz Jr., 20-1; Oscar Nominated, Julien Leparoux, 20-1; Lani, Yukata Take, 30-1; Destin, Javier Castellano, 15-1; Whitmore, Victor Espinoza, 20-1; Exaggerator, Kent Desormeaux, 8-1; Tom’s Ready, Brian Hernandez Jr., 30-1; Nyquist, Mario Gutierrez, 3-1; Mohaymen, Junior Alvarado, 10-1; Outwork, John Velazquez, 15-1; Shagaf, Joel Rosario, 20-1; Mor Spirit, Gary Stevens, 12-1; Majesto, Emisael Jaramillo, 30-1; Brody’s Cause, Luis Saez, 12-1; and Danzing Candy, Mike Smith, 15-1. CLOCKER GARY YOUNG: NYQUIST ‘NOT A WEAK FAVORITE’Private clocker Gary Young, just back from Churchill Downs where he experienced first-hand the three-year-olds preparing for the Kentucky Derby, was front and center as is his wont when asked his thoughts on tomorrow’s Big Dance.“Mor Spirit worked well for the race, Outwork looked good, Suddenbreakingnews could hit the board as a big longshot, depending on the pace, and I can’t knock Nyquist,” Young said Friday morning at Clockers’ Corner.“A lot of people knock Nyquist, but he looked terrific yesterday in an open gallop. If I bet the race am I going to bet him at 3-1 when there are horses sitting up there at 12-1? No, because that’s not my nature, but that said, I don’t think Nyquist is a weak favorite.”last_img read more

Pac-10 basketball: Washington State impresses its rival

first_imgSEATTLE – The 10th-ranked Washington State Cougars have earned their archrivals’ utmost respect. “I think they’re better than No. 10,” Washington’s Jon Brockman said after the Cougars beat the Huskies 65-61 on Wednesday night. “They’re a great ball club. They didn’t get flustered when we got the lead.” Freshman center Spencer Hawes had 22 points and Brockman added 15 and 14 rebounds for the Huskies. The Cougars (22-4, 11-3 Pac-10), who received their highest ranking in history in this week’s Associated Press poll, won their fifth straight conference game this month after an overtime loss to Oregon. The Huskies (16-9, 6-8) had won five of their previous six league games. Picked to finish in last place in the Pac-10 preseason media poll after having a 4-14 record in the conference last season, Washington State’s confidence is now soaring. “It’s definitely up there for this time of the year,” Kyle Weaver said. Added Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar: “Washington State is a well oiled machine. They capitalize on every mistake that you make.” Taylor Rochestie scored a season-high 16 and Derrick Low hit two free throws with 16.7 seconds left to help the poised Cougars win a close game down the stretch. center_img Teammate Robbie Cowgill agreed. “This is the type of game that we probably would have lost last year or the year before,” Cowgill said, referring to Washington State’s 12-16 record when he was a freshman and 11-17 when he was a sophomore. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
