Basketball Federation to host 3X3 challenge

first_imgBASKETBALL Basketball Federation of Papua New Guinea is launching its first of many public basketball demonstration events this weekend, starting on Saturday. The federation will be holding a 3×3 competition at the Waterfront Supermarket carpark. The event is open to the public with registrations at K10 per player. The event starts at 9am for U-15; 10am for U-19s and 11-12 is for Open players. The 3×3 basketball is short format of the traditional 5×5. It consists of three players competing in a half court and the competition is only for 10 minutes. This should be a very fast and dynamic competition generating plenty of excitement for the spectators as well as the players. The federation said in a statement that this weekend’s event is the first of three that they will be hosting in the city’s supermarket carparks between May and June. “We will alter to other major centres outside Port Moresby. The objective is to generate plenty of interest in basketball, more particularly, basketball for the juniors. There will be an Oceania U-15 championship in Port Moresby in December and we would like to get as many young players interested and competing as we lead up with competitions and selections in the coming months,” the federation said. “We will also use these events to identify the skill levels of these junior players. We also want to reintroduce our Hoops 4 Health and Junior Hoops program for 2018. This program is funded through the Australian government’s sport for development support in partnership with our international federation, FIBA. The PNG Sports Foundation is also backing these programs. “We also want to thank our partners, Waterfront Foodworld for allowing us the use of their car park.” Interested players can check out our Facebook page for more details or email, admin@basketballpng. com for registration forms.last_img read more

Share on other sites Members Sign in to follow this   overlooked 50th anniversary timmy b well as one of those whose love of uniform history is shared by a few others out there….this season is the 50th anniversary of the introduction of numerals on the sleeves or shoulders on the football jersey. also – and probably more commonly known – as “tv numbers”, 8 of the 12 nfl teams sported them in 1956. the teams were the colts, bears, lions, packers, rams, giants, eagles and steelers. it was also in 1956 that cbs began televising in earnest nfl regular season games. as teams were still sporting dark jerseys when playing each other (that would change in 1957), the addition of numerals on the sleeves would make for easier identification of players for the fans viewing the game on the philco console at home. the other four teams would eventually follow suit; the redskins in 57, the 49ers during 1958, the browns (switching from numbers on the sides of their helmet to the sleeves in 1961) and the cardinals in 1962. ironically, the steelers in 1957 would take them off the sleeves and stick the numbers on the sides of their yellow helmets (a la the browns) and would keep them on the helmets until 1962, when they would be affixed back on the jersey sleeves. in the afl, all the teams would wear sleeve numerals, except for a year in 1967, the chargers would remove them. when the bengals joined the afl in 1968, old-liner paul brown refused to place numbers on his team’s shoulders or sleeves, holding out until 1980.a month or so after the 1956 nfl season, the detroit red wings would pick up on the football idea and become the first hockey team to sport tv numerals, in fact redesigning their white jerseys to focus attention to the nifty new numbers. soon afterwards the other five teams would follow suit, with the black hawks wearing them in 57-58, canadiens, the rangers and bruins sporting them in the 58-59 season with the last holdout being the toronto maple leafs, who would finally attach nubers to their sleeves starting with the 1962 stanley cup playoffs. for a spell the st. louis blues would keep them off of their white sweaters in the late 60’s thru the early 70’s.all hail the tv numbers’ 50th anniversary!! timmy b 1,182 Share this post heh, then happy anniversary, sleeve number! 0 Posted September 19, 2006 By timmy b, September 19, 2006 in Sports Logo News 1 overlooked 50th anniversary Link to post 1,182 Share on other sites Share this post 0 1,182 SportsLogos.Net Go To Topic Listing Share on other sites Forums Home overlooked 50th anniversarylast_img read more

Utah’s Tony Finau wins Tour event, clinches spot on PGA Tour in 2015

first_imgIt’s going to be huge to get some starts on the PGA Tour next year and that’s obviously where I’ve been aiming at since I turned professional. – Tony FinauIt’s been a long time coming, but Salt Lake native Tony Finau has made the PGA Tour.Finau clinched a spot on next year’s tour by winning the Stonebrae Classic in Hayward, California. The 24-year-old fired a 4-under-par 66 Sunday afternoon to take a three-stroke victory over Fabian Gomez, Zack Sucher and Daniel Berger.Finau had burst into the lead with rounds of 62 and 63 on Friday and Saturday and held on to earn his first victory after coming close several times earlier this year.“I feel overwhelmed. It hasn’t really sunk in yet,’’ Finau said. “Going up the 18th hole, I got goosebumps thinking about how far I’ve come these last couple of years. I’m just soaking the win up. It was just a huge performance on my part.’’The victory was worth $108,000 to Finau and vaulted him from No. 24 to No. 8 on the Tour money list with $238,125. That assures him of a top 25 finish, which will give him playing privileges on the PGA Tour in 2015.“It’s going to be huge to get some starts on the PGA Tour next year and that’s obviously where I’ve been aiming at since I turned professional,’’ he said. “I’m looking forward to the next challenge. I’ve been close to the lead this year and to come through this week, I just can’t put into words what it’s going to do for my confidence going forward.”Finau came close three times earlier this year, finishing in a tie for fourth at tournaments in Indiana and Ohio and finishing fifth at the Utah Championship in early July. In the Indiana tournament, Finau was leading with four holes to play, only to bogey three of the final four holes.In Sunday’s round, Finau held tough throughout. He played the front nine in 1-under with one bogey and just when he’d been surpassed by Gomez, he birdied 10 and 11, while Gomez bogeyed 10. Finau birdied No. 15 with a 10-foot putt to get to 22-under par and his nearest competitors couldn’t go lower than 19-under.Finau started playing golf at age 7 and was a top junior golfer in Utah, capturing the State Amateur title in 2006 at the age of 16, defeating current PGA Tour regular Daniel Summerhays in the finals. He surprised a lot of folks by turning pro at the age of 17, just as he was finishing high school at West High.He played on various minor tours and in state opens around the West over the past few years before finally qualifying for the Tour this year. He made the cut at 11 consecutive tournaments before missing at the Boise Open last month. He took last week off and took advantage of his rest with Sunday’s victory.Another Utah golfer, Ogden’s Zac Blair, finished in 62nd place at 276 after shooting a 72 Sunday. It marked the fifth-straight week Blair has made the cut on the Tour. 14 years after being summer golf pals, McIlroy and Finau both earned big wins Relatedlast_img read more
