Top quarter-milers uncertain over World Indoors By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter bstubbs@tribunemedia.net resh off their banner year in 2017, talented Bahamian quarter-milers Shaunae Miller-Uibo and Steven Gardiner continued their trend by turning in fantastic times in their indoor debut for 2018. Over the weekend at the 111th running of the NYRR Millrose Games in New York, Miller-Uibo clocked 35.45 seconds to tie the world indoor 300-metre record that was set by Irina Privalova of Russia in Moscow in 1993. Her performance came after Gardiner erased his own meet record in the men’s 300m at the Birmingham Crossplex Arena in

F

Birmingham, Alabama in a time of 32.51 last month. His previous record was 33.45. While Miller-Uibo’s time is the fastest posted so far this year on the women’s side, Gardiner is sitting in second place on the men’s list behind Oscar Husillos of Spain, who has run 32.39. The 300m is not an event that will be contested at the 17th International Amateur Athletic Federation’s World Indoor Championships in Athletics, scheduled for March 2-4 in Birmingham, United Kingdom. However, the 400m will be one of the 14 disciplines on the twoday event. And as the event draws near, their manager of On Track Management, Inc’s Chief Executive Officer Claude Bryan, shed some

light on their participation for Team Bahamas. “Gardiner is a no, but as for SMU (Miller-Uibo), we will not know until on or around February 12,” Bryan said. Miller-Uibo, standing at 6-feet, 1-inch, is the reigning bronze medallist from the 16th IAAF World Indoor Championships that was held in Sopot, Poland in 2014, finishing behind American gold medallist Francena McCorory and Jamaican Kaliese Spencer. Gardiner, who finds it more difficult at 6-2 to run the tight bends in the two-lap race, has never competed indoors. Veteran Chris ‘Fireman’ Brown emerged as the silver medallist in the men’s race behind Czech Republic’s Pavel Maslak and ahead of American silver medallist Kyle Clemons.

Should both Miller-Uibo and Gardiner opt not to compete at the Worlds, where the Bahamas is expected to field a men’s 4 x 400m relay team, Bryan said they would continue to focus on the 2018 season. “Given their talent, the entire team around them and their commitment to hard work, it would not be a surprise to see them exceed their 2017 performances,” he stressed. Miller-Uibo, who began the year getting married to her college sweetheart, Estonian decathlete Maicel Uibo on Paradise Island, lowered her national record in the women’s 200m by becoming the first Bahamian woman to dip under 22 seconds in the 200m at the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon in 21.91.

In an unusual race, Miller-Uibo broke the 200m straight world record with a time of 21.76 on June 4 as she erased the previous mark of 22.55 that was set by her arch-rival Allyson Felix on May 16, 2010. And she attempted to become the first female to win the 200/400m double at the IAAF World Championships in London, England, Miller-Uibo slipped from glory to fourth place in an unpredictable finish in the 400m before she came back and settled for the bronze in the 200m. Miller-Uibo, 23, added the medal to the gold she won at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2016 and a bronze she collected at the World

CONCACAF targets Bahamas for primary schools soccer pilot programme By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter bstubbs@tribunemedia.net THE Bahamas has been selected by CONCACAF for a

Page 5

pilot programme to develop grass soccer in the primary schools. Bahamas Football Association technical director Gary Markham confirmed that CONCACAF will have two representatives in town to meet with the BFA, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology as well as the physical education teachers to discuss their plans for the formation of the programme that will be sponsored by Scotiabank. CONCACAF, the biggest sporting body for soccer in the region, will be represented by Andre Waugh and Jay Roberts as they discuss the avenue to introduce the sport to the primary schools in their bid to increase the participation of players from the bottom to the top. Markham said once the meeting is concluded on Thursday,

they will decide on how to proceed with the programme that should run for about 6-8 weeks at the Roscoe Davies Developmental Centre at the Baillou Hills Sporting Complex. “We are going into the primary schools so that we can get to the grass root and develop from the ground to the top,” Markham said. “In terms of development, it’s a great step in the right direction to get more people to play the sport. “It’s such an easy game, it’s a cheap game, in terms of the equipment that you need,” Markham stressed. “It’s important that we begin to develop the younger generation to play the game.” Once they get the programme off the ground within a month or two and they conclude with

a festival, Markham said they intend to put it as a fixture on the primary schools sporting calendar in September and it will culminate with the primary schools’ soccer championships. “We believe that if we can get some more people playing the sport, we can increase the participation of the sport at every level,” Markham stressed. “But we want to start from the bottom and work our way up to the top. “That is the reason why we are putting our emphasis on this grass root programme. We believe that we can get a lot of the schools to get involved and that is why we are having the meeting with the physical education teachers and the Ministry of Education.” Joining the BFA and CONCACAF executives at the

meeting in the boardroom of the Ministry of Education on Thursday will be Dawn Knowles, the Ministry’s sports director for Primary Schools, along with at least one PE teacher from the various schools. Markham said a representative from Scotiabank is also expected to be in attendance as they explain their involvement in the programme. Markham said that Scotiabank is making a significant financial contribution to the pilot programme. Based on the success of the programme here, Markham said CONCACAF is hoping that they can take the model to other countries in the region where they hope to see an increase in the participation of players in the grass soccer arena.

THE TRIBUNE

SPORTS reporter Renaldo Dorsett (back left and below right) and several well-deserved winners earned the opportunity to enjoy the Bud Light powered amenities at Dolphins/ Broncos December 3.

Bud Light celebrates with NFL Lovers By RENALDO DORSETT Tribune Sports Reporter rdorsett@tribunemedia.net BUD Light did something that I didn’t think was possible this football season. No, I’m not referring to the inevitable feeling of euphoria you get when you enjoy a few of their products - that definitely happened – but in addition to that, they made Sundays about football again. The official beer of the National Football League, Bud Light’s regional Caribbean division along with local distributors Bahamian Brewery and Beverage Company continue to give fans an opportunity to experience the sights, sounds and feel of the game through its “NFL Lovers” campaign. All season long, Bud Light gave Bahamian fans an opportunity to experience the NFL firsthand with visits to Miami Dolphins games at Hard Rock Stadium and culminated with a trip to Super Bowl LII. Several well-deserved winners (and me for some reason) earned the opportunity to enjoy the Bud Light powered amenities at the Dolphins/ Broncos on December 3.

We moved through the Ft Lauderdale and Miami areas like a team of travelling professional beer drinkers. If that’s an actual job that comes with some level of celebrity, Bud Light made us feel that way - outfitted in Bud Light NFL Lovers jerseys, letterman jackets, baseball caps and flanked by promotional models. The walk into Hard Rock Stadium set the tone for what the remainder of the day would be like. Pausing for photos, with the backdrop of fans cheering either “Go Phins,” “Go Broncos” or “Go Bud Light” depending on how lit their tailgate situation progressed throughout the morning. We paused for photo ops wherever we saw Bud Light signage (there was a lot) and of course grabbed a few of the signature products (there were a lot) before we headed to our seats. Let’s talk about the seats. Bud Light spared no expense to make this experience as ideal as possible with 100-level seats so close to the Broncos bench you could actually see the depression setting into Trevor Siemian after every drive. Other winners shared similar

experiences to Dolphins games during the season. The campaign concluded with a joint celebration of both in Nassau and in Minnesota for Super Bowl LII. In Nassau, Bud Light hosted a Mega Watch Party at the Cricket Club Pub and Restaurant on West Bay Street. The cricket bowl was transformed into a stadium atmosphere complete with a miniature football field, sideline bleachers, a trio of supersized LCD screens and interactive amenities for partygoers. During Superbowl LII, partygoers were connected to the winners live on location in Minnesota at the big game, connecting Bud Light patrons across two countries. In 2015 Bud Light, the official beer of the NFL since 2011, renewed its sponsorship through the 2022 Super Bowl. And parent company AnheuserBusch InBev paid $1.4 billion to do so. When the company inked the deal, Bud Light became the first NFL sponsor permitted to use game highlight footage on its website and social media pages. Seems to be money well spent for Bahamian NFL lovers.

SEVERAL well-deserved NFL Lovers winners can be seen in the crowd during the Miami Dolphins against Denver Broncos on December 3.

‘Fantastic Four’ are hoping to crack into Major League Baseball By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter bstubbs@tribunemedia.net THE Bahamas has been blessed to have had six players who played in the Major League of Baseball. There were quite a number of them who made it to the minor leagues. After the retirement of Antoan Richardson last year, there are no more players in the Majors, but he has helped to pave the way for another batch of players who are hoping to follow in the footsteps of the other major leaguers, including Andre Rodgers, Ed Armbrister, Will Culmer, Wenty Ford and Tony Curry. Four of those players were on hand as they watched Courtney Smith, the latest Bahamian to ink his name to a professional contract with the Texas Rangers last week at the Courtyard Marriott. Dominique Collie, Jasrado Chisholm, Lucius Fox and Larry Alcine all remembered what it was like going through the process. Now they can all reflect on what their transition has been like so far in the minor leagues. Dominique Collie, Arizona Diamondbacks After spending two months in instrumental baseball in the Dominican Republic, Collie is preparing for spring training in March in Scottsdale, Arizona where he will find out exactly where he will play this season. “I’m living a dream. I wanted this all my life so to be living it and even exceeding what I’m doing is even better,” Collie said. “I just thank the Lord for the opportunity to play with my brothers like Jazz and Christian Robinson. That makes it even more exciting to know that I have players who I grew up with playing along side me.” Last year, Collie made his pro debut in the Dominican Republic where he felt he played exceptionally well, especially on defence without committing an error. “I had the least amount of at-bats, but I led the team in walks and I had a .250 batting average with my on base percentage as the highest on the team. I didn’t have that much stolen bases, but I had a lot of hits, a lot of line drives,” the centre fielder said. “The organisation was very impressed with me and now that I am out of the DR (Dominican Republic) and in the States, I can only see myself going up higher on the ladder.” He admitted that the conditions in the Dominican Republic was a struggle, but he was able to grind it out. “No one there speaks English, the food is different and we had cold showers,” he pointed out. “But I kind of liked it because it made you want to play better so that you can get out there as quickly as possible. It’s not the place that you want to be, so I’m glad that I got out of there. “When I left, they told me they want to see me put on some weight and get stronger and faster and I’ve been doing that. They got to see a glimpse of my game in October and they said they can’t wait to see me in spring training.” Collie said he knows all of the professional players now because they all grew up together playing junior league baseball and to see the amount of talent out there is amazing. He said that it will only keep growing, having watched Smith join the ranks as the newest member of their fraternity. “Me and Courtney went to a couple of tryouts in 2015. We went to showcase for three teams and he put in the hard work,” Collie said. “Even when all of us were signing and he didn’t, he never gave up. He continued to put in the hard work and so I’m so proud of him today. He kept on

SHOWN (l-r) are Dominique Collie, Jasrado Chisholm, Lucius Fox and Larry Alcine. training and training. It’s about time, He finally got to sign his contract.” And at just 18 years of age, Collie said he’s still trying to get used to the idea that he’s now a professional baseball player in the outfield. Jasrado Chisholm, Arizona Diamondbacks After enjoying three seasons in the minors, Chisholm said he’s just trying to get out of Advance A and into Double A so that he can continue to move through the ranks. “The last two seasons have been great and the Diamondbacks have been treating me the golden child, so I’ve really been enjoying every moment of it,” he said. “It’s been a good experience. It’s been a lot of fun. I couldn’t ask for anything more.” Chisholm said the good thing is that he’s not the only Bahamian player trying to make it out of the minors, so it’s good to have the compatriots even though they may be playing in different leagues and levels with different clubs. “Hanging with these guys has been a blessing. I’ve been with them since I was a baby,” he said. “So seeing everybody striving for success has been great.” Last year, Chisholm only got to play in 23 games, but he made the best out of them. “I hit above the league average, but I only had one home run in a pitching league,” said Chisholm, who played in Kane County Cougars as a shortstop. “I played awesome defence for the time I was there, so it was an awesome season.” When he goes to sprint training in Arizona in March, Chisholm said he’s already projected to have a great season, so he’s looking forward to exceeding all expectations wherever he ends up. “I want to make this my best year ever because I want them to know that I am here to stay and I will become a major leaguer,” he said. “I will prove to the Bahamian people that I will become a major leaguer.”

As for the signing of Smith, Chisholm said it’s so good when others are following them. “It makes the Bahamian family stronger and showing everybody that the Bahamas is a place that we don’t just run like Jamaica,” he said. “We play basketball like Buddy Hield, we have track and field and now baseball. We do it all, so it’s just great to see another Bahamian coming up the ranks.” Chisholm, who celebrated his 20th birthday last week Thursday, said it was an honour for him to come home and participate in the Home Run Derby so that he could display some of his skills to the public. He said he was also glad that some of the younger guys come to him and ask him for his advice on how to make it. Lucius Fox Jr, Tampa Bay Rays Although it’s been an up and down season so far, Fox Jr said he’s making the most out of it. “I had some times when I was failing a lot and I had some times when I was succeeding a lot, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world,” he stated. “It’s been a dream come true from when I was a young boy growing. Now I am having so much fun playing the game that I love and just being able to call it a job is a blessing.” During the offseason, Fox Jr said he’s spent a lot of time trying to improve his craft. “I’ve been hitting and lifting weights every day trying to fine tune my swing, making sure everything is right before I head to sprint training on March 1st,” said Fox Jr as he prepares to go to Port Charlotte, Florida for the Rays’ organisation. “Hopefully one day I can achieve my goal of becoming a major leaguer. “I am enjoying the process so far and I just want to thank God for the experience. I just want to improve in every aspect. I’ve been working out a lot on my speed and my strength because I want to get bigger and faster and stronger so I can hit the ball harder and

increase my power numbers and my stolen bases.” If he can perfect hitting the ball from both sides of the plate and got on base a little more, Fox Jr said he’s looking for his stolen bases percentage to increase and that will help him to surpass the .270 that he had with about 17 doubles, five triples and three home runs and 30 stolen bases, “I make to make it big this year,” he projected. Larry Alcine Jr, Cleveland Indians It’s been a grind for Alcine Jr in the Dominican Republic, but he’s taking it in strides. “I just want to thank God for getting there,” Alcine Jr said. “I just go out there every day just trying to get better. Baseball is not an easy sport. It’s all about giving your best and focusing on getting better every day and staying focusing because there’s plenty of distractions out there. I

have to keep my body right and try to stay away from injuries.” Last year, Alcine Jr played in the Dominican Republic. “It was a learning experience, just trying to put everything in place,” he said. “That’s what baseball is all about, learning every day and the next day putting what you learn into practice. So it’s good to get the experience.” Alcine, 19, will now head to Bradenton, Florida for sprint training in March. “I expect to go there and have an amazing spring training,” he said. “I had an amazing off season working out with the boys, working hard in the gym, so I just hop to have an amazing year.” As he prepares to move to the next level, Alcine Jr said he was just excited to see Smith make the leap to the pro ranks. “When I signed, Courtney was there for me, so I want to be here

for him,” he said. “All this time he was working so hard. He came so close, but he never got there and he never gave up. To see him here signing, I think I’m more excited for him. To watch someone grow in two years, it’s a great feeling. “It’s just exciting to see another Bahamian come into the professional ranks. As we continue to grow, it’s good to see someone so close make it.” Alcine said it reminded him of playing in the Home Run Derby. “I enjoyed it. I enjoyed every part of it,” Alcine said. “I can’t wait for next year. I already put the guys on notice that unless I move, the trophy is going home with me in Carmichael Road.” In the meantime, the players all say they just want to see where their path will take them when they go to spring training next month.

Knicks fall to Bucks 103-89, lose Porzingis to torn ACL By JEFFREY BERNSTEIN Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Kristaps Porzingis’ dunk wasn’t spectacular, certainly nothing like Giannis Antetokounmpo jumping over Tim Hardaway Jr. for a slam. But the moment he landed, punching the court in pain , the Knicks’ playoff hopes had likely crumpled right along with him. Porzingis tore the ACL in his left knee Tuesday night in the Knicks’ 103-89 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Antetokounmpo scored 23 points, jumping over Hardaway for one highflying slam after Porzingis had dunked over him earlier in the game. Porzingis crashed to the ground after his dunk with 8:46 left in the second quarter and was taken for an MRI exam that revealed his injury. “More than a basketball player, he’s my brother,” Knicks center Enes Kanter said. “I don’t want to see anyone going down like that hurting his knee. He’s about to be an All-Star. I’m just going to pray for him tonight. He is the most important part of our family.” Eric Bledsoe also had 23 points and Khris Middleton added 20 for the Bucks, who are a season-high seven games over .500 Antetokounmpo didn’t appear bothered by a right ankle injury sustained Sunday, particularly when he leaped to catch a lob pass on a fast break and jumped over the 6-foot-6 Hardaway to slam it down . “I knew (Middleton) was going to throw me the lob,” Antetokounmpo said. “It was a bad pass but I was able to get up and go get the ball. I didn’t see Tim Hardaway under me. I just went up to get the ball.”

ANOTHER WIN FOR DELIRIOUS PHILLY: EMBIID, SIXERS TOP WIZARDS By AARON BRACY Associated Press

NEW York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis clutches his knee after a fall during the first half last night against the Milwaukee Bucks at Madison Square Garden in New York. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer) Kanter led New York with 19 points and 16 rebounds. Milwaukee led 50-46 at halftime and opened the second half with six straight points. The Bucks increased their lead to a game-high 21 points on Marshall Plumlee’s free throw with 3:43 left in the third quarter. The Knicks scored the next nine points and pulled within 12 points on a pair of occasions in the final quarter, but never got any closer. “I thought it was a very good effort,” said Joe Prunty, who is 7-1 since replacing the fired Jason Kidd as coach on Jan. 22. “We defended the three again well, rotation good in terms of getting to the spots and running people off the line. I really like the

things I saw and we just have to keep doing them every night.” Sean Kilpatrick (16) and Jabari Parker (10) also scored in double figures for the Bucks. Courtney Lee added 14 points for the Knicks, who have lost four straight, tying their longest skid of the season. “I think went K.P. went down, it kind of deflated us some,” Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said. “He is a big part of the things we do. No one is going to feel sorry for you when your guys are out, so you have to step it up.” TIP-INS Bucks: Milwaukee guard Matthew Dellavedova sprained his right ankle in Sunday’s win at Brooklyn. He underwent an MRI on

Monday and subsequent examination by team physician Dr. William Raasch. The exam confirmed a sprained right ankle that is expected to sideline Dellavedova for up to four weeks. Knicks: New York has dropped 10 of its last 13 against the Bucks. That streak has cost them the lead in the all-time series, as they now trail 106101. The Knicks have not taken a season series from the Bucks since going 2-1 against them during the 2013-14 season. NO KIDD-ING Just one of Prunty’s seven wins since replacing Kidd has come against a team that was above .500. That was a 107-95 victory over Philadelphia.

KAN-DO Kanter has recorded six consecutive double-doubles. It is the longest streak by any Knick since David Lee had seven straight from Feb. 9-26, 2010. IN THE MIDDLE OF THINGS Middleton is the only Milwaukee player to start all 53 games this season. Thon Maker has also played in all 53, but has only started nine times. CITY SWEEP The Bucks have had their way with New York City’s NBA teams this season. They are 2-0 against both the Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, with all four wins coming within the last 11 days.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The still-celebrating Philadelphia sports fans gave the 76ers a big boost on Tuesday night. Joel Embiid had 27 points and 12 rebounds and Philadelphia led from start to finish in a 115-102 victory over the Washington Wizards. Dario Saric added 20 points and J.J. Redick had 18 for the 76ers, who snapped Washington’s fivegame winning streak while playing in front of a raucous crowd still in a tizzy over the Eagles’ Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots. “We knew it was going to be amazing, so we had to come out and play up to the competition,” Embiid said. Bradley Beal scored 30 points for the Wizards, who lost their first game since fellow All-Star John Wall had arthroscopic surgery on his troublesome left knee. “We had a nice run,” Washington coach Scott Brooks said of the winning streak. “We have to try to regroup and come back on Thursday (against Boston).” It looked like half the crowd was clad in Eagles green, and fans broke out into several loud chants of “E-A-G-L-E-S!” as the party continued 48 hours after Philadelphia won its first Lombardi Trophy. Fans gave a standing ovation to Eagles offensive linemen Brandon Brooks, Lane Johnson, Jason Kelce, Halapoulivaati Vaitai, Stefen Wisniewski and Jason Peters when they rang the ceremonial Liberty Bell before tipoff.

Magic stun reeling Cavs as Lebron says he’s staying put By DICK SCANLON Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — After another embarrassing defeat and two days before the trade deadline, LeBron James let it be known he’s not going anywhere, at least for now. “I’m here for this season right now to try and figure out a way we can still compete,” James said after his Cleveland Cavaliers blew a 21-point lead in a 116-98 loss to the Orlando Magic. “I owe it to my teammates to finish this season out no matter how it ends up. I would never waive my no-trade clause.” The Cavaliers fell apart in the second half and lost for the 14th time in 21 games. They have given up an average of 122.4 points in their last five losses. “I couldn’t give up on my teammates like that. I just couldn’t do it,” James said after scoring 25 points. “We put too much into the game every single day. “This is no time to be ashamed about our season,” he added. “We’ve got quite a few games left. If we’re still serious about the season, then we’ve got to play some good ball at some point.” Jonathon Simmons scored 22 of his career-high 34 points in the third quarter for the Magic, who broke a nine-game homecourt losing streak against Cleveland. The Cavaliers scored 43 points in the first quarter, but then went almost 6½ minutes without scoring in the fourth. They played the second half without coach Tyronn Lue, who went to the locker room in the second quarter with what the team said was an illness. The Magic made their first 10 shots of the second half and won consecutive games for the first time since Nov. 8-10. James did not have a rebound or an assist in a foul-plagued second half. “I gave my teammates some opportunities to knock ‘em down, but they just didn’t go. You can’t get assists when they don’t go down, but that doesn’t stop me from finding my guys on the floor,” he said. “At this point it’s not what you say, it’s what you do. We’ve got to go out and play well as a collective group, everyone hitting at the right time on all cylinders, and right now we’re not doing that.” Simmons made seven of eight shots in his 22-point quarter, finishing the period with a 3-point buzzer shot in a game in which he

(AP Photo/Phelan M Ebenhack) almost did not play because of a sprained right ankle. “To be honest, adrenaline was just going and I didn’t even realize what

was going on,” Simmons said. “I was just trying to play hard and trying not to have another setback.”

J.R. Smith made three 3-pointers in the first four minutes to help the Cavaliers (3022) take a 15-4 lead, and they led by 21 points late in the first half. Jeff Green dunked to put the Cavaliers up 61-40 with 4:50 left in the half, but they went scoreless for almost four minutes while the Magic (17-36) sliced nine points off the lead. James opened the second half with a couple of 3-pointers to regain a 16-point lead for Cleveland, but Simmons scored 12 points during the Magic’s 19-2 run that gave them their first lead of the game at 78-77 with 5:33 left in the third quarter. James was called for his fourth foul just 17 seconds later and sat for more than seven minutes. When he re-entered the game with 10:10 remaining in the fourth quarter, the Magic ran off 14 straight points to lead 108-92. Dwyane Wade banked in a 3-pointer for Cleveland’s only points in the first 7:25 of the fourth quarter.

FA CUP: SWANSEA WINS 8-1, HUDDERSFIELD SETS UP MAN UNITED MATCH By STEVE DOUGLAS Associated Press WITH a club-record 8-1 win in the FA Cup, Swansea offered further evidence of its revival under new manager Carlos Carvalhal yesterday. Huddersfield was another winner in the fourth-round replays, beating secondtier Birmingham 4-1 after extra time to set up a last-16 meeting with Manchester United — three days after losing at Old Trafford in the Premier League. Carvalhal has masterminded wins for Swansea over Liverpool and Arsenal in recent weeks to lift the Welsh club out of the Premier League’s relegation zone. Notts County, a team from England’s fourth tier, provided a much easier test and Swansea took advantage by scoring four goals in each half at Liberty Stadium. The teams drew 1-1 in the original match last month. “It’s important if it’s the best result in the (club’s) history, but the most

important thing is the attitude of the players that made all the difference,” Carvalhal said. “I spoke to them before the game that we had a challenge.” Carvalhal played a team filled largely with fringe players and two of them — Tammy Abraham and Nathan Dyer — scored twice in the first half. Kyle Naughton, Wayne Routledge, Tom Carroll and debutant Daniel James added more goals after halftime to complete Swansea’s biggest FA Cup win. “I don’t think they deserved to win 8-1 but it is one of those games where their finishing was Premier League standard,” said Notts County manager Kevin Nolan, who played in England’s top division for Bolton, Newcastle and West Ham. The reward for Carvalhal is a meeting with the club that fired him in December, second-tier Sheffield Wednesday. Huddersfield came from behind at St Andrew’s, needing an own-goal to

THE TRIBUNE

All-Star Weekend: Hield set for Skills Challenge By RENALDO DORSETT Tribune Sports Reporter rdorsett@tribunemedia.net ADD another event to the list of activities for Buddy Hield at the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles, California. The NBA announced Monday that it selected Hield to participate in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge after Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell replaced Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon in the Verizon Slam Dunk Contest. Hield will compete against Spencer Dinwiddie of the Brooklyn Nets, Jamal Murray of the Denver Nuggets and Lou Williams of the LA Clippers as the guards in the eight-player field. The big men in the competition include NBA All-Star Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers, All-Star Al Horford of the Boston Celtics, rookie Lauri Markkanen of the Chicago Bulls and defending champion and All-Star Kristaps Porzingis (torn ACL last night) of the New York Knicks. The second year Kings guard was also one of 20 players selected to the rosters of the 2018 Mountain Dew Kickstart Rising Stars. For the fourth consecutive year, the league’s annual showcase of premier young talent during All-Star Weekend will feature 10 first- and second-year NBA players from the US against 10 first- and second-year NBA players from around the world. The 24th Rising Stars is the first with Mtn Dew Kickstart as title partner, with the brand expanding the event into a yearlong

platform showcasing upand-coming NBA players. The World team includes five rookies and five second year players. The 10 players hail from nine different countries. Joining Hield on the World Team will be his Sacramento Kings’ teammate Bogdan Bogdanovic (Serbia), All-Star starter Joel Embiid (Cameroon), Dario Saric (Croatia) and Ben Simmons (Australia) of the Philadelphia 76ers, Jamal Murray (Canada) of the Denver Nuggets, Dillon Brooks (Canada) of the Memphis Grizzlies, Lauri Markannen (Finland) of the Chicago Bulls, Domantas Sabonis (Lithuania) of the Indiana Pacers and Frank Ntilikina (France) of the New York Knicks. The US Team features seven rookies and three second year players. Headlining the team will be reigning Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, Malcolm Brogdon of the Milwaukee Bucks. The remainder of the team includes Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram of the Los Angeles Lakers, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics, John Collins of the Atlanta Hawks, Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz, Dennis Smith Jr of the Dallas Mavericks and Kris Dunn of the Chicago Bulls. Hield is averaging 12.5 points on 44 per cent shooting from the field and 43 per cent from threepoint range and 88 per cent from the free throw line. He is also collecting 3.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.02 steals and 24 minutes per game in 50 contests (started 11) in his second season. He leads Sacramento with 101 three-pointers made

She also teamed up with Gardiner, Anthonique Strachan and Michael Mathieu to ink the Bahamas name on the first mixed 4 x 400m relay ran at the IAAF World Relays at the Thomas A Robinson National Stadium last April. Last year was also a break out year for Gardiner as a professional athlete, ending his campaign on a high note at the World Championships with a silver medal in the 400m, two days after he became the first Bahamian male to dip under the 44-second barrier with his national record-breaking performance of 43.89 in the semi-final. Gardiner had a chance to collect a hefty cash payday at the 2017 IAAF Diamond League, but he failed to finish the men’s 400m, while Miller-Uibo went on to claim the two titles in the 200 and 400m. As for Miller-Uibo’s latest accomplishment, Bryan put it into perspective this way: “I’m ecstatic more so for SMU (Miller-Uibo),” he pointed out. “It represents a continued reward for a confidence of industry and talent.” What’s next for the duo? “They will continue training with the Commonwealth Games being on both their radars,” Bryan disclosed. The Commonwealth Games is set for April 4-15 at the Carrara Stadium in Carrara, off the Gold Coast in Australia.
