first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion A most wonderful production was put on recently at the Blue Roses Theatre in Schenectady High School. Using the words of people who actually spoke them, the play brought the audience back 25 years ago. It relived the accidental killing of a child and a rift between the black and Hassidic communities in the surrounding area of Crown Heights, Brooklyn.The theater has consistently had excellent productions and is a real gem in our community. For a top admission price of $6 ($3 for seniors and students), it can’t be topped for a  marvelous afternoon or evening of good drama, comedy or a musical.Their next production will be The Addams Family in March. Take the family and see something exciting. These young people deserve to be supported.Sally MadgidNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Puccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img read more

first_img Published on January 6, 2017 at 7:45 pm The one Atlantic Coast Conference team Syracuse can’t seem to beat, Pittsburgh, meets SU on the Carrier Dome floor Saturday at noon for each team’s third conference bout of the season. The Orange (9-6, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) on Wednesday night picked up its first ACC win of the year, a 70-55 victory against Miami. The Panthers (12-3, 1-1) also played Wednesday, when they upset No. 11 Virginia 88-76 in overtime at home. Four days earlier, Pitt nearly beat then-No. 24 Notre Dame, falling 78-77.Though Syracuse came away with a double-digit victory against Miami on Wednesday, our beat writers pick SU to fall to Pitt for what would be the sixth straight time. They explain their selections below.Connor Grossman (8-7)Pittsburgh 79, Syracuse 68RelapseThe defensive honeymoon Syracuse enjoyed against Miami will be short lived. Pittsburgh boasts the two most potent scorers in the ACC, including Jamel Artis, who leads the ACC with a 45.8 shooting percentage behind the arc this season. SU skirted past the Hurricanes despite allowing 11 3-pointers, but the Orange won’t be as fortunate on Saturday. Pitt’s multi-faceted offense tilts the game in favor of the Carrier Dome visitors.Matt Schneidman (9-6)Pittsburgh 70, Syracuse 64Artis-tryAdvertisementThis is placeholder textArtis is one of those guys who seems like he’ll never leave college, just to stay around and haunt Jim Boeheim’s dreams. The Pitt forward is the perfect fit to stand at the foul line and orchestrate a dissection of the zone, a la Nigel Hayes of Wisconsin. The Panthers just plastered almost 90 points – granted, in overtime – on a Virginia team allowing around 49 per game. It’ll be a lot tougher for Syracuse’s defense to hold another ACC opponent to under 60 points, especially being Pitt, and don’t expect it to happen Saturday.Paul Schwedelson (10-5)Pittsburgh 72, Syracuse 61Just a band-aidThe Orange’s 70-55 win over Miami was an effective band-aid. But for a team with problems that were still exposed (See: 11 3-pointers allowed) on Wednesday, a band-aid is all it was. In its last game, Pittsburgh scored 88 points against No. 11 Virginia, which boasts the third best adjusted defensive efficiency in the country, per The Panthers also have Artis and Michael Young, the top two scorers in the conference. SU’s win against the Hurricanes was nice, but its defensive problems didn’t just disappear. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgThree-time VAT Wonder Goal Award winner, Emeka Ogbugh has revealed that supporting charity work is a motivation that spurs him to put in the extra work that has seen him win the award in three consecutive seasons of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).Ogbugh won the award in the 2015/16 NPFL season with Heartland FC of Owerri and in 2016/17 with his current club, Rivers United. Last Sunday, he was presented the ceremonial cheque for winning the award for Match-day 15 after securing over 51 percent of the votes in a poll that fielded four other players.Speaking to on the award that was presented by Rivers State Coordinator of Federal Inland Revenue Services (FIRS), Mr. Joel Nwakpo, Ogbugh was of the opinion that the innovative award is one every player in the league would love to win. In his words, “Basically, every Nigerian league player wants to score spectacular goals and if you’re trying to score such goals, you have to try to score on a weekly basis. So I think that innovation is very good and coupled with the fact that you’re going to give some of the money to charity, it makes you to work very hard so you can give back to the society too”.Ogbugh’s goal for Rivers United was a hit from outside the 18 yard box and he gave an insight into how he developed the hard hitting goal scoring skills, tracing it to his years at a football academy in Owerri where the coach made him practice hitting set pieces.“Yeah, in my academy back in those days, my coach will normally, before every training session set balls for me to be striking them to goal, so that’s how I inculcated that habit of scoring free kicks and hitting shots from outside the 18-yard box.On his reaction to receiving the news of his emerging the winner, the Imo State University graduate said it brought some excitement to him. He praised other nominees and described their goals as equally good.“I am very excited. I feel honoured to have won the award in three consecutive seasons. I think it shows that hard work actually pays. All the goals were good so to be singled out, you have to feel honoured”, remarked Ogbugh who was part of the Nigerian squad that won silver at the African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Morocco earlier in the year.On the impact of the national team outing, Ogbugh said it has helped him in confidence building and gave the credit to Coach Salisu Yusuf.“Actually, playing for the national team has helped me, especially, playing under Coach Salisu Yusuf at CHAN. He helped build my confidence more and also advised me on the skills and techniques to use on the pitch. I think all that has helped me more coming back to the league”, concluded Ogbugh who nominated Compassion Centre in Port Harcourt as the charity organisation to benefit from his N150,000 prize moneyShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
