COVID-19 may have changed the world but one thing is still the same. North Carolina A&T still has some heavy hitters. Perhaps the heaviest of all is dominant sprinter, Cambrea Sturgis.
The beginning of the NBA 2021 season has been tough on the Toronto Raptors. The team is facing issues such as a lack of production coming from within their core, a lack of depth on the bench compared to previous years, and mismanagement in the lockdown that took place during off-season. With the departure of Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka, a gaping hole is left in positions such as center and power forward. However, there’s one bright spot – the new kid, Chris Boucher. At 11 games into the season, he has already demonstrated his ability to be a reliable starter who’s also a shooter. Plus, Boucher has proven to be a consistent defender for the Raptors. Here are Boucher’s stats:
In this day and age of advanced technology and analytical evaluation, it is very easy to be caught in a web of paralysis by over analysis. Many times I have witnessed the young ball player focused on data and information that contributes zero to the advancement of his feel for the art of pitching. This data overload has taken us away from the focus of winning baseball games and in a pitching sense, executing the next quality pitch. The advancement of technology has created an excellent way to analyze performance but it has not improved the concepts of coaching and instruction for youth baseball players, especially pitchers. The concept of analyzing performance is a good one, but the need to understand what the feeling of a particular motor skill or movement pattern that goes results in a positive performance should be the primary goal.
On Friday, Jan. 16, the University of Kentucky hosted the first day of the Rod McCravy-Jim Green Invitational in the Nutter Field House. The Kentucky Wildcats are competing against Cincinnati, Eastern Kentucky, Louisville and North Carolina A&T.
Usually the Jim Green Invitational and Rodney McCravy Memorial meets are two separate events but because of the crazy times of a global pandemic due to COVID-19 we are fortunate to be having an indoor track season at all.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, sports teams around the world have had to play their games in empty stadiums. This means that fans will have had to watch games and events from home and interact with them on social media.
During the postgame press conference of a Friday night matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers on January 9, 2021, Warriors forward Draymond Green was asked this question, “Do you wish defense was seen, like, in a sexier way? That like, being in good position, or staying vertical...that’s just as good as, potentially, hitting a splashy 3, but it’s the 3 that ends up on the highlight reel?”
Some big-name allstars have come off the list of available players to trade for, for the Raptors. Recently, Giannis Antetokounmpo signed a 4-year deal to stay in Milwaukee. Yesterday, former Rockets allstar James Harden was traded to the Brooklyn Nets, a team in which he wanted to go to. There were rumours that the Raptors showed interest in bringing one, if not both players to Toronto. Getting any of the two players and putting solid players around them would have likely put the Raptors back in title contention. So what now for the Raptors?
