Rain or Shine Elasto Painters’ Gabe Norwood shoots over Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings’ LA Tenorio. PBA MANILA – Rain or Shine Elasto Painters moved to a share of the top spot in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup after drubbing Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings 108-89 last night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.Raymond Almazan led with 20 points for Painters to tie with TNT KaTropa on top (2-0). Eduardo Daquiaog added 17 while import Reginald Johnson had double-double 16 points and 15 rebounds.In the first game, Alaska Aces nearly squandered a lead as high as 30 points but was able to regain its form in the fourth quarter for a 93-74 victory over the slumping Blackwater Elite.Painters had a strong start behind Almazan, Daquioag and Gabe Norwood for a 27-16 lead, which grew further 49-31 late in the second quarter with triples from Maverick Ahanmisi and James Yap. Kings rallied to within 51-60 early in the third period on hits by Charles Garcia but Painters quickly answered with its own rally behind Daquioag, Beau Belga and Ahanmisi to raise the lead 75-62.Ginebra had its last push in the fourth, trimming the deficit to 8, but Painters went for a finishing run on baskets from Yap, Almazan and Chris Tiu for its largest lead 103-82.Japeth Aguilar finished with double-double 28 points and 12 rebounds, while import Garcia had an unimpressive showing of 19 points on 8-of-17 shooting for Kings (0-1).Aces went on a fiery start in the curtain raiser behind Anthony Campbell and Vic Manuel for a 27-11 first-quarter score. The gap went to its widest 49-19 on a layup by Kevin Racal.Elite made its move in the second half and managed to come to as close as 54-62 in the third before Aces pulled away anew in the fourth on hits by Campbell and Manuel.Manuel top-scored with 27 points while Campbell chipped in with double-double 23 points and 19 rebounds for Aces (1-1). Calvin Abueva struggled offensively with just 3 points but contributed 10 rebounds and six assists./PN
When national motorcycle manufacturer Modenas unveiled the Kriss 110cc underbone in December 1996, it was off to a good start, becoming one of the most popular four-stroke ‘Kapcai’ motorcycles in a few years. In fact, the model held almost 50 per cent of the market share by the year 2001.Believe it or not, a total of 99,800 units were sold the year it made its debut itself, thanks to factors like its affordability, reliability, spare parts availability, and also good performance. It’s design was also not too bad for its time.However, after the Kriss was discontinued, things were not looking very promising for Modenas. Almost every model that succeeded the Kriss, including the Kriss SG, Kristar, and the CT Series were unable to replicate the level of success the Kriss achieved.According to the guys at Modenas’ product planning department, the Kriss’ successors were struggling purely due to the design which was rather traditional. As newer models with scooter-inspired styling cues became all the rage as time went on, younger buyers were going for rivals that looked simply more futuristic.It was not that Modenas bikes were unreliable or they were lacking in the performance department. They were just lacking the visual appeal to attract young bike owners, who make up a majority of the moped market in Malaysia. Realising the change in market trend, the brand introduced the Ace 115 in 2012, which is doing quite well in the market at the moment.In an effort to keep the momentum going, Modenas has unleashed the CT 115S which will be replacing the CT 100 and CT 110, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on the new model two days after it was unveiled.Targeted towards riders aged between 16 and 35 years old, the Modenas CT115S is powered by a 115cc four-stroke, carburetor engine which produces a maximum output of 8.8hp at 9,000rpm and 8.1Nm of peak torque at 5,000rpm. The engine is paired with a four-speed transmission.Fitted with a 4.8-litre fuel tank, the Modenas CT 115S also comes with a few notable features such as a five-step adjustable Monoshock suspension, a 12V electrical charging socket under the seat for owners to charge devices like smart phones (first in class) , a trailing rear swing arm, front disc brake, and an electric starter.As much as the design of the bike is concerned, Modenas has nailed it with the CT 115S. Built from scratch at the Modenas’ plant in Gurun, Kedah, the CT 115S is basically the sportier variant of the CT range, featuring an improved, more aerodynamic design than the CT 100, which was launched two years ago. Featuring a sharp, bold and modern design, the CT 115S is arguably the best looking Modenas to roll out of the factory to date. Available in two colours, the bike looked good from any angle we looked at it.In terms of riding experience, the 115cc engine powering the bike did a good job in delivering power seamlessly, and churned out decent amount of torque. Throughout our stint at the Elite Speedway, never once did the bike showed signs of struggling, even while being ridden by lanky riders. Complementing the smooth engine was the smooth gear-shifting, which added to an enjoyable riding experience.Handling wise, the CT 115S was very agile, allowing us to change directions and manoeuvre it as we wished without breaking a sweat. Even in terms of build quality, Modenas has done a good job as it didn’t feel cheap, and had no unnecessary vibration while riding.As nice as the CT 115S was, there are a couple of things which could have been better in our opinion. Firstly, the bike’s seat is ideal only for small and medium sized riders. If it was slightly wider, it would be nice for big sized individuals. Besides that, the handlebars could have been positioned slightly higher as well, in order to appeal to taller riders. These minor hiccups aside, things were fine and dandy with the CT 115S.Overall, the CT 115S is a testament to the fact that Modenas is serious about what they are doing, and shows that a lot of thought and effort has gone into the bike. For a product that is 100 per cent Malaysian, it is definitely up there among the Japanese. Besides that, the fact that it costs slightly more than RM5,000 makes it a very attractive proposition, compared to some of its rivals that ask for at least a couple of thousand Ringgits more.SpecificationsEngine: Four-stroke, SOHC, single-cylinderTransmission: Four-speedMax power: 8.8hp at 9,000rpmMax torque: 8.1Nm at 5,000rpmFuel system: carburetorIgnition: Kick-start and electric starterCooling system: Air-cooledLength: 1970mmWidth: 725mmHeight: 1084mmSeat height: 750mmDry weight: 99kgFuel tank capacity: 4.8-litresPrice: Below RM4,998 (excluding insurance and road tax)–Ads–
Kawasaki Motors Malaysia (KMSB) has officially unveiled their first new bike of the year which is the 2018 Kawasaki Z900RS. This is Kawasaki’s first ever modern-retro bike since the Kawasaki W800 which was last manufactured in 2016 and it looks stunning for both current and old school riders alike.Heavily inspired by the Kawasaki Z1 which was released back in 1973, the 2018 Z900RS marks “The Return of the Legend” into the 21st century. The highly-anticipated comeback was made possible with the inception of old-school styling and Team Green’s latest street riding technology. The Z1 was the fastest production motorcycle upon its introduction and was named as the “Motorcycle of the Year” by various publications for four consecutive years, hence the known as a legend.Based on the powerful yet agile 2017 Kawasaki Z900 ABS, the Z900RS carries the same level of power and rideability but it has been made even more special thanks to its retro styling and timeless facade. The latest Z900 evolution is powered by the same 948cc four-cylinder engine found in the Z900 ABS which produces excellent low-to-mid range as well as a breathtaking top end speed.As such, the Z900RS’s engine has been re-tuned to produce 110 bhp (82 kW) at 8500 RPM compared to 123 bhp (92 kW) at 9500 RPM. Maximum torque of 98.0 Nm is reached at 6500 RPM, compared to the Z900’s 98.6 Nm at 7700 RPM. Peak horsepower isn’t everything, instead, it’s how engine’s torque is spread out through the engine’s rev range — the 2000 RPM separation between maximum torque and horsepower is illustrative of that character.Kawasaki has gone to great lengths to ensure that every single aspect of the Z900RS conforms to the modern-retro theme including the sound it produces. From the moment of ignition, a smooth yet powerful rumble can be heard thanks to its four-into-one double-wall exhaust pipe system specifically designed for this particular model.As stated above, all of its stylings is heavily inspired by the Z1 from the front all the way to the rear end. The design, however, has been taken into the future with updated specifications like the multi-function LCD display neatly placed between its dual analog dials plus many more.The modern and classic combination can also be seen from its all-around LED lights which help to further accentuate the bike’s retro appeal in this day and age. This ‘pure street’ machine comes with a fully-adjustable 41mm front upside-down fork which allows the rider to fine-tune the preload, compression and rebound for optimum riding experience.Paired with its horizontal back-link swingarm shock absorber system, the 2018 Z900RS is said to have superb handling and rideability which rivals other major manufacturers in the market. All of these are located within the bike’s modern lightweight trellis frame that helps to provide flexibility, tactile response and seamless agility.The braking package comes in the form of front dual disc brakes with radial-mounted calipers equipped with a radial-pump master cylinder together with a single rear unit which provide enough power to bring the Z900RS to a complete and safe stop whenever needed. They are also fitted with the latest dual-channel ABS system to further elevate the safety aspects of the new bike from Kawasaki. The Z900RS is also equipped with Kawasaki’s K-TRC traction control package as a safety net.Kawasaki Motors Malaysia has priced the 2018 Kawasaki Z900RS at RM69,900 for the Special Edition Orange paint scheme and RM 67,900 for Standard Edition (basic price with GST). To know more, head over to the Kawasaki Motors Malaysia Facebook page or any of its authorised dealers located across the country.The Kawasaki Z900RS was launched at Kawasaki Motors (Malaysia) Sdn.

IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 It was a day that also saw Uzbek weightlifters Elmira Ramileva and Alexander Urinov disqualified for failing doping tests, bringing the number of such cases at Doha to three following the disqualification of Myanmar weightlifter Than Kyi Kyi.On the cycling track, Kazunari Watanabe, Kazuya Narita and Yudai Nitta had enough natural strength to clock 45.590 seconds in the three-lap men’s sprint to edge China by 0.083 and give Japan its first track cycling gold of the Games. Taiji Nishitani also took silver in the individual pursuit behind South Korea’s Jang Sun Jae who covered the 4,000 meters in 4:35.433 to Nishitani’s 4:42.081.In track and field Japan then produced a hat trick of golds, with Kenji Narisako taking the first in the 400-meter hurdles in a time of 48.78 seconds, just ahead of China’s Meng Yan in 49.26 and compatriot Naohiro Kawakita, who clocked 50.19 for the bronze.In the men’s pole vault, Daichi Sawano produced an effort of 5.60 meters to pip Leonid Andreev of Uzbekistan (5.55) to gold, with China’s Yang Yansheng (5.50) taking bronze, while in the women’s long jump Kumiko Ikeda pulled off a leap of 6.81 to blow away India’s Anju Bobby George on 6.52 and Kazakhastan’s Olga Rypakova on 6.49. Ikeda took the lead on her second attempt with 6.68, which none of the other competitors in the 14-woman field could top.In the women’s 400-meter hurdles, Satomi Kubokura won silver for Japan in 56.49, behind the 55.41 of China’s Huang Xiaoxiao, with Mohd Khalid Noraseela of Malaysia getting bronze in 56.85.Asami Tanno grabbed the bronze in the women’s 400 meters in 53.04, with Olga Tereshkova of Kazakhstan winning gold in 51.86 and India’s Manjeet Kaur the silver in 52.17, but in the men’s 400 meters Yuzo Kanemaru just missed out with a fourth-place finish.In the gym, Yukari Murata took her second silver in Doha after finishing runnerup to Kazakhstan’s Aliya Yussupova in the individual all-around rhythmic event. Murata collected 59.125 points to Yussupova’s 63.925 in adding to the silver she gained on Saturday in the team competition, won by Kazakhstan. Yussupova led the field in all four disciplines — the rope, ball, clubs and ribbon. China’s Xiao Yiming took bronze with 58.525, while Yuria Onuki was seventh with 56.100.On the first day of the diving competition, Japan’s Misako Yamashita and Mai Nakagawa also took silver in the women’s synchronized 10-meter platform with 317.70 points, behind Chinese gold winners Jia Tong and Chen Ruolin on 344.52, while North Korea’s Hong In Sun and Choe Kum Hui took bronze on 302.76.Earlier in the day, Satoshi Osaki grabbed bronze for Japan in the men’s marathon, won by Qatar’s Mubarak Hassan Shami in 2 hours, 12 minutes, 44 seconds. Osaki timed 2:15:36 to place behind Bahrain’s Khalid Kamal Yaseen in a photo finish for third place, with Satoshi Irifune in fourth in 2:17:24.Japan has not won the men’s marathon gold at the Asian Games since Takeyuki Nakayama did so in 1986 in Seoul. South Korean runners had won the last four marathon golds but Ji Young Jun’s seventh-place finish was the country’s best this time.Japan took two more bronzes in Greco-Roman wrestling, when Masaki Imuro beat Kazakhstan’s Aibek Yensekhanov 2-1 in the 66-kg third-place playoff, and Shingo Matsumoto repeated the feat by a similar score against Alexandr Dokturishivili of Uzbekistan in the 84-kg class.But in fencing there was no repeat of Saturday’s gold medal for Japan as Shizuka Ikehata was outpointed 15-11 in the women’s individual epee quarterfinal by China’s Li Na, while in handball the Japanese women lost to South Korea 28-21 but had already booked a berth in Monday’s semifinals where they will face Kazakhstan.In women’s volleyball, Japan advanced to a final showdown with Olympic champion China after dispatching Thailand 32-30, 25-17, 25-17 in the semis. Miyuki Takahashi scored a match-high 15 points and Sachiko Sugiyama added 13 to lead the Japanese women, bronze winners in the previous four Asian Games, into the final for the first time since they finished runners-up to China in 1986. GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES DOHA – Japan added four more gold medals to its Asian Games coffers on Sunday with top-class performances in the men’s hurdles and pole vault, the women’s long jump and the men’s team cycling sprint.Kenji Narisako of Japan jumps over a hurdle en route to winning the men’s 400-meter hurdles in 48.78 seconds on Sunday at the Asian Games in Doha.

Members 973 57,915 posts raysfan24 10 Posted August 14, 2012 Here is an article I ran across a few years ago that tells the tale of the late great Metro Conference during the time of all the conference realignment of the early 1990’s. (The article is a little slow to come up so give it a few moments.) Instead of the Metro Conference adding football it was the Big East who gathered the football independents and the rest is history.What Could Have Been: Metro ConferenceI look back fondly on the ol’ Metro, despite watching FSU get bounced from the basketball conference tourney in the first round every year and seeing Louisville and Memphis State dominate. illwauk Share on other sites 466 posts 4,155 dfwabel nuordr Banned Posted April 5, 2010 rams80 4,155 0 35 Share this post Humor Yes Complaining No Next sc49erfan15 Titanole 423 Share on other sites 4 423 Favourite Logos:All WLAF logos, Bucs pirate flag, Arizona State pitchfork, Notre Dame leprechaun, Albany Firebirds, Iowa Barnstormers, SD State eagle warrior Share this post Posted April 4, 2010 Mascot Turned Announcer 2,139 BigDmo Location:San Jose Link to post 973 illwauk 2,139 illwauk 423 Members Posted August 14, 2012 This is the first time I’ve learned about the Metro conference.

I’m not sure about their conference before they joined the Great Midwest – were they both independent?South Carolina was in the ACC for years; had some kind of falling out and were independent for a while before joining the Metro.I have to agree – football has driven a lot of the conference consolidation over the past 20 years. 0 Members 3,287 This topic is now closed to further replies.

I’m not sure about their conference before they joined the Great Midwest – were they both independent?IIRC, Marquette and DePaul were members of the Midwest Collegiate Conference (now known as the Horizon League) before joining the Great Midwest. It was the first conference Marquette was ever part of and I think DePaul was independent when they joined too, but I think they also had brief stints in a couple of short lived conferences before they hooked up with the MCC.

It sort of seems like they should’ve been in the SEC since the beginning. “People of the court, these guys are total dildos!" 26,195 1 Titanole 9 Members Share on other sites 973 Multiple decades of nerding out to sports logos!

I’m sure quite a few members here remember the Metro. The Metro existed from 1975-1995, and at one time contained quite a few big-name teams – namely, Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Memphis (then known as Memphis State), Florida State, Virginia Tech, and South Carolina. The Metro merged with the Great Midwest Conference (whose membership mostly broke away from the Metro) to form Conference USA in 1995.Anyway, I’ve never seen a logo for the Metro Conference (whose official name was the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) and Google searches give me nothing.Surely they had to have something…does anyone know anything about a Metro Conference logo?

In the 21st minute of the match in the UEFA Europa League, which was guaranteed to be the winner of the match, Afghan football player Omrans Haidari nominated the player from the goalkeeper’s goal line after a great center of Gdansk club match after Žarko Udivičič.After 65 minutes of play, the visitors leveled the scores after Pelle van Amersforts made it through the middle and struck home the 1 – 1 goal.In the 75th minute, Cracovia did not score, as the VAR system recorded a game for Cornel Rapam by hand.Five minutes later, Mario Maloča earned a red card for a rough game in the Gdańsk team, leaving the team with ten men. However, after five minutes, it did not stop Lechia from taking the lead after Patrick Lipsky’s shot. He turned Conrad’s center in front of the goal into a “goal” with a blow to the head, overtaking the opponent’s defender – 2: 1.The joy of Gdańsk footballers was not long, because in the 88th minute after the standard situation, from the left side of the field, “Cracovia” went to the goal with great force, and David Jablonskis equalized with his head – 2: 2.In the 117th minute, Pestk gave another excellent pass from the left, only this time on the ground, which was closed by Mateuš Vdovjaks with a winning goal.In the semi-finals on July 7, “Cracovia” beat the Polish championship “Legia” in their field 3: 0, but a day later “Lechia” played 1: 1 (0: 0) with “Lech” from Poznan. After the “dry” overtime, the teams played a series of 11-meter penalties, in which the guests were 4: 3 superior.Tobers watched the Polish Cup semi-final match from the reserve bench.In the final of the 2019 Polish Cup in Warsaw in the fight against Belastok “Jagiellonia”, the winner was the Gdansk “Lechia” team, which this time failed to defend the title. Arturs Sobjeks scored the only goal in the sixth minute of the match compensation time.The Gdansk team took fourth place in the tournament table with 56 points in 37 games in the Polish championship. The top three stayed five points away and failed to qualify for the European Cups through the extra class.It has already been reported that Gdynia’s “Arka”, represented by Pavel Steinbor, another Latvian football goalkeeper, said goodbye to the Polish extra class. The Gdynia team took 14th place in the tournament table with 40 points in 37 games, remaining the first “behind the bar” and falling out of the Polish Premier League.
