The Tony nominee’s first exposure to the show was in 1992, when the original production performed on the Tony Awards. “I was at home in Omaha, Nebraska, and had very little access to Broadway,” he explained over a glass of white wine. “The Tonys were the window into that.” Now, he’s playing Whizzer in the revival, which is directed by its book writer James Lapine. For Rannells, that involves “a lot of pinching.” Check out that interview below, and catch Falsettos at the Walter Kerr Theatre, where it opens officially on October 27.last_img read more

Syracuse picks up crucial road win, downs Louisville, 78-73

first_img Published on February 5, 2018 at 9:25 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @Sam4TR Facebook Twitter Google+ LOUISVILLE, Ky. — In the midst of all the chaos, Frank Howard glimpsed something out of the corner of his eyes.He was on the left wing, a step behind the arc, with Louisville’s Quentin Snider in his grill.Eleven minutes remained and Syracuse was doing what it hadn’t all season: Stiff-arm a hard-charging Atlantic Coast Conference opponent to maintain a lead on the road. But now, Louisville had cut the lead from 12 to five. The KFC Yum! Center crowd sensed the Orange about to collapse, and thundered the loudest it had all night over the speakers blasting Wolfmother’s “The Joker & The Thief” at full volume.Then, there, across the court and on the end of the bench, Howard spied a 5-foot-8, 150-pound walk-on stand up. Ray Featherston flashed his right hand in air, with his middle, ring and pinky fingers extended. Featherston wanted a 3.Howard didn’t hesitate. After the shot swished, a Louisville student, who had been jeering all night, ripped off his snapback hat in frustration and bellowed, “That man is pure ice!” Howard held up his own right hand, putting his index finger up to his lips as he stared into the crowd.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I did the little shush,” Howard said. “When you on the road, you got to tell the crowd to calm down.”If anyone wanted a reason to believe in this Syracuse team, they got it on Monday night.Syracuse (16-8, 5-6 ACC) moved the ball on offense as well as it has in conference play and battled through foul trouble and a lack of depth to stave off Louisville (16-8, 6-5), 78-73, for its most important victory of the season. The first ACC road victory over a team not named Pittsburgh came on ESPN’s Big Monday, in front of a national TV audience the Orange has seldom played in front of this season. The Cardinals’ strength, and its strength at home, made this a win the Orange can star on its NCAA Tournament resume come March.“This is our best win in a long time,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “… It’s a lot easier to win a game when you score more than 50 points.”The difference in SU’s offense against Louisville compared to the Orange’s past four games was that the Orange hit shots Monday night. SU’s 47.2 percent shooting from the field (25-for-53) and 46.2 percent from the 3-point line (6-for-13) are its second-best marks of this calendar year. The team defied expectations just by being in the game and nearly entered halftime with as many points (39) as it finished with on Saturday against Virginia (44).Those makes worked in tandem with secondary drives to soften and stretch a defense that ranks 15th in the nation for defensive efficiency. Syracuse sinking outside shots forced defenders to respect the jumper, said guard Tyus Battle, and that created more spaces inside to drive, because they had to also worry about the kick-out. This eliminated the pack-the-paint scheme that drove Syracuse to its worst offensive performances of the season in the last three games.When asked if Syracuse had more room to operate in the paint than in its past few games, Howard almost laughed and said, “No question.”He added: “We go through stretches where we go through fatigue, take plays off. Tonight, we moved the ball very well, created a lot of space for one another. … When you’re predictable, teams can shorten the court on you and the last three or four games, that’s what happened. We forced tough jump shots and leave all five guys to hang in the paint. We spaced ’em out today.”The Orange also capitalized on a sloppy Louisville unit that turned the ball over nine times in the first half and 11 times overall. In total, SU scored 20 points off turnovers compared to UofL’s nine.One of the Orange’s biggest turnovers came just before halftime, partly the product of a short bench that forced players into situations they haven’t been in all season.About 10 minutes into the game, each of the three forwards and center Paschal Chukwu — Syracuse’s only available big man because freshman Bourama Sidibe again sat because of lingering left knee tendinitis — picked up two fouls. Then, with under a minute to go in the half, Marek Dolezaj was whistled for his third.Boeheim subbed in junior transfer guard Braedon Bayer, who started the season without a scholarship and has played three minutes this season after transferring from Division III Grinnell College. On his first offensive possession, Syracuse held for the final shot and, as it has all season, the Orange put the ball into Battle’s hands at the top of the key and cleared out.Battle drove, then in the middle of shooting a floater from the left of the free-throw line, flipped it out to Bayer, who tried to drive until a whistle stopped him. The referee called a travel.Seconds later, the Cardinals’ Darius Perry hit a buzzer-beating 3 just beyond the halfcourt line to knock the wind out of the Orange headed into the break. Bayer never re-entered.The dearth of depth strained Syracuse, which played the entire second half with six players available — half of whom picked up their fourth fouls with at least six minutes to go. Boeheim avoided forward Matt Moyer and rode with his five, even after they made costly turnovers or took shots that made him put his hands on his head. Louisville countered by attacking the interior because it knew Syracuse was in foul trouble.The Cardinals clawed, eating away at Syracuse’s lead. It was 10, then UofL cut it to eight with a tip-in. To six with a high-post jumper. To four with another. To two with a pair of free throws earned after forcing the ball inside.“Coach told us how important this game was,” forward Oshae Brissett said. “We knew it was going to be big and they were going to come at us.”On this night, at least, Syracuse was ready. The Cardinals never got closer.Inexplicably, UofL stopped going inside and settled for shots beyond the arc. None of Syracuse’s players knew why they stopped doing that, and each said the Orange did not change its defense late.Then, Battle did what he had done all game and hit a crucial jumper to give the Orange a six-point cushion with less than 90 seconds to play.“We were patient and it came down to Tyus making that jump shot in the lane to give us some space,” Boeheim said. “It was a great spot.“They got it inside, but we had just enough to hold on.” Commentslast_img read more

You Are Free to Re-Join Manchester United Next Summer

first_imgAccording to reports in Spain, the Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team has been told he is free to re-join Manchester United in a £75million deal next summer.Cristiano Ronaldo who became Manchester United’s first-ever Portuguese player when he signed before the 2003–04 season. His transfer fee of £12.24 million made him, at the time, the most expensive teenager in English football history.Don Balon claims Los Blancos are willing to cash in on their record goalscorer, who has looked below his usual high standards so far this season. The outlet claims the club will allow Ronaldo to move on and build their team around Isco, who it is claimed no longer wants to play second fiddle to the Portuguese star. Isco has in previous seasons been in and out of the Real Madrid team but has arguably been their most consistent player this season, having scored four times and assisted three more from nine starts in La Liga.And with Isco seemingly seen as the future of the Real team, it’s reported that the European champions want to cash in Ronaldo now while he still retains some value in the market. Furthermore, it’s claimed the player will be granted the return to Old Trafford he craves with a fee of £75million being suggested.Relatedlast_img read more

Uganda’s KCCA start CL Group action in Botswana

first_imgGroup CSundowns won the 2016 Champions League and were eliminated by highly organised Wydad in the quarter-finals last year after a penalty shootout.Another tight tussle is on the cards near Pretoria with the South Africans needing maximum points if they hope to finish first and face a theoretically weaker side in the quarter-finals.A couple of group debutants, Port of Togo and Horoya of Guinea, play in Lome, but neither west African club are realistic candidates for a top-two finish.Group DPicking the likely Group D winners is easy with former champions Etoile Sahel of Tunisia the standout side when it comes to strength and experience.But selecting the other quarter-finalists from Mbabane Swallows of Swaziland, Primeiro Agosto of Angola and Zesco United of Zambia is considerably trickier.Primeiro are back in the group stage after a 21-year absence and host Etoile in Luanda, while Swallows will be hunting a second Zambian scalp this season when away to Zesco in Ndola.Tweets about KCCA TODAY: Township Rollers  ?? vs KCCA FC  ?? 10pmJohannesburg, South Africa |  INDEPENDENT & AFP | The 2018 CAF Champions League group phase kicks off this weekend with Uganda’s KCCA FC taking on Botswana flag bearers Township Rollers Friday in a first for both sides.It is a first Champions League Group game for both sides in their first ever clash which will set the tone for the rest of the games in a Group A. It is a tough group that also has North African giants Al Ahly of Egypt and Esperance of Tunisia.Mike Mutebi’s boys travel with a lot of experience, having played in the group stages of the  the Confederations Cup last year. On the contingent of 32 that is already in Botswana are young but battle hardened KCCA FC players  Paul Mucureezi, Derrick Nsibambi, Muhammad Shabab and Allan Okello.“I am very excited with the type of football they play,” said Mutebi in a pre-match press briefing. “They are an attacking team which scores home and away like they did in Tanzania and everywhere they go,” he added.“In my opinion, these are teams we want to play. I don’t want to face teams that park the bus, teams that make things difficult.”KCCA have had several tough fixtures in the past week, and many feared fatigue might set in ahead of this key continental match.“We have the ability to match the best team in Africa because we are here on merit. We are aware of the threat Township Rollers can cause because they have our former player Ivan Ntege but we shall remain head on because they play our style. The better team will carry the day,” said Mutebi.Rollers Serbian coach Nikola Kavazovic will interestingly rely on his Ugandan hardman Ivan “MmaoFit” Ntege to undo KCCA’s effort. Ntege joined Rollers from KCCA in July 2017 after a 7 year stay with the Kampala City side.Al Ahly of Egypt and Esperance of Tunisia also clash this Friday  in the other Group A game, followed by TP Mazembe of DR Congo against Entente Setif of Algeria the following day.Another Saturday showdown, between Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa and title-holders Wydad Casablanca of Morocco, is also set to draw a large crowd and global TV audience.AFP Sport takes a group-by-group look at the matchday 1 fixtures in the premier African club competition with group winners and runners-up advancing to the quarter-finals.Mutebi giving instructions to Ivan Ntege before the latter was introduced in the CAF Confederation tie against Club Africain at Lugogo last year. He has since moved to Botswana and faces his former side today. PHOTO KCCA MEDIAGroup AThe Ahly-Esperance fixture has been moved from Cairo to Alexandria for security reasons as the Tunisians seek revenge for a 2017 quarter-final loss when the clubs last met.Record eight-time champions Ahly will miss injured Moroccan striker Walid Azaro and his Nigerian partner Junior Ajayi is doubtful for a match the Egyptian club should win.Township Rollers of Botswana host Kampala Capital City Authority of Uganda in Gaborone and it is hard to imagine either side challenging Ahly or Esperance for the top two places. Group BWhile the outcome of Group A appears clearcut, the same cannot be said of Group B, which is likely to be the toughest of the four mini-leagues to qualify from.Mazembe have won the competition five times and Setif twice and home advantage should give the Congolese the edge in the intimidating cauldron of Lubumbashi.But Mouloudia Alger of Algeria and Difaa el Jadida of Morocco, who meet in Algiers, are not without hope having scored 29 goals between them in eight qualifiers.center_img Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
