“It’s March Madness. A lot is going through my mind,” Williamson told reporters during a postgame press conference. “I consider (Krzyzewski) the greatest coach of all time. When he looks at you and says ‘you’re made for this moment’ it’s like, the most confidence you can be giving. When I went to the basket, I knew it was going in.”Williamson entered the game shooting 32.1 percent from 3-point range this season. The projected top choice in the 2019 draft, however, hit three of his seven attempts from behind the arc against the Knights. “I always feel comfortable with my 3-point game,” Williamson said. “My teammates and my coaches are always telling me to shoot a strong shot. And they trust me to shoot. … I was just shooting it with confidence.”Krzyzewski praised both Williamson and Barrett after the game.“They hung in there because just the momentum of the tournament, what’s going on, you can be defeated right there. Instead, they hung in there,” Krzyzewski said. “The will to win of Zion and RJ, you can’t measure it. It’s just there.“Look, we’re a young group, but what they did, right at the end of the game, in willing us to win, was absolutely sensational.Williamson spent parts of the game matched up with UCF big man Tacko Fall. The 7-foot-6-inch center tallied 15 points, six rebounds and three blocks in the losing effort.

Nestle/Milo will serve up a whopping $750,000 sponsorship and other incentives at the 19th renewal of an eagerly anticipated Milo Prep/Primary Schools Swimming Championships slated for June 3- 4, at the National Aquatics Centre. The event was launched at the same venue on Wednesday. The annual championship serves as a major development meet for children not involved in club competitive swimming at the prep and primary school level, between ages four and 12. More than 200 swimmers will compete for the respective honours and prizes this year. Amateur Swimming Association of Jamaica (ASAJ) president, Handel Lamey, praised NestlÈ for its 19 years of sponsorship. “I am very very pleased that Milo has increased their sponsorship, it’s a tremendous boost to swimming in Jamaica, because it is very expensive to host a meet like this over a two-day period, so this sponsorship is very significant and we want corporate Jamaica to come on board and to really give back to the sport,” Lamey told The Gleaner. According to Lamey, he has no doubt outstanding swimmers like Zaneta Alveranga of St Hugh’s Prep who said the prayer on Wednesday, Zacharay Jackson-Blaine from Creative Kids Learning Academy who gave the vote of thanks and Christanya Shirley of Wolmer’s Prep will several records at the meet. John Sinclair delivered the meet overview yesterday, tipping the event to be one of their ‘most exciting and competitive.’ The reigning Champion Schools are Wolmer’s Prep in the boys’ category and Immaculate Preparatory for girls while Excelsior are the Champion Primary school. Director of Sports in the Ministry of Culture and Sports Florette Blackwood lauded the efforts of Nestle/Milo for being “good corporate citizens and for their stewardship in the development of the sport of swimming.” Marketing manager of Milo, Ockino Petrie, said besides their $750,000 sponsorship they are introducing a $100,000 incentive to make his company’s 19th year as sponsors a memorable one.

At the start of the flight, the plane weighed 22,006 pounds, with the fuel weight causing the airplane’s wings to sag. At the end of the flight, the airplane will weigh less than 4,000 pounds.

Jim Skeen, (661) 267-5743 [email protected] AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 A closed-circuit course means the aircraft will take off and land in the same location, in this case Salina. In February 2005, Fossett flew the GlobalFlyer around the world to claim the first solo nonstop flight around the world. That flight also originated and ended in Salina; however, at approximately 22,876 miles, it did not surpass the distance of Voyager’s around-the-world flight. Fossett’s flight path took him northeast across Michigan and into Canada before heading across the Atlantic. The flight path calls for Fossett to go over northern Africa, the Middle East, India, China, the Pacific Ocean, Baja California and then back into the United States. Fossett’s attempt is coming just a few weeks after he set a record for the longest flight, a 26,389.3-mile journey in February. In that flight, Fossett flew GlobalFlyer from Kennedy Space Center in Florida completely around the world and then crossed the Atlantic Ocean for a second time, landing in Bournemouth in the United Kingdom. GlobalFlyer was commissioned by Sir Richard Branson, the founder of the Virgin companies, including Virgin Atlantic airlines. MOJAVE – Adventurer Steve Fossett took off Tuesday morning in the Mojave-built GlobalFlyer in a bid for a third distance record, this time for the longest flight over a closed circuit without landing. GlobalFlyer lifted off from the airport at Salina, Kansas, early Tuesday morning on what is projected to be a 78-hour flight that will cover some 25,181 miles. Carrying more than nine tons of fuel, the jet used all but the last 1,000 feet of the airport’s 12,300-foot runway to become airborne, according to a Web site set up by Kansas State University, which is serving as Fossett’s ground crew for the mission. Fossett is attempting to break the 24,986.7-mile record set in 1986 by Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager in another Mojave-built aircraft, the Voyager. Both GlobalFlyer and Voyager were designed by Burt Rutan, Dick’s brother.
