Bruce Morris recalls hitting longest shot in basketball history

first_imgNadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ He jokes that the “Shot Herd Round the World” should never have happened if his teammates had listened to their coach.“I was the starting point guard and we were supposed to take the last shot of the half,” Morris recalled in a phone interview this week, a few days before the anniversary. “I passed it to our 6-foot-9 forward in the corner with 12 seconds to go and he shot it and they had a fast break the other way. We had a tremendous block on the layup by Skeeter Roberts and I chased it down. It was going out of bounds and knowing that the horn was going to go off when I caught it, I turned and threw it.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsThe rest is history.The shot drew some national attention as it was mentioned on the news, but this was way before the internet, and ESPN’s “SportsCenter” was still in its early stages.

He was given 10 shots to try and hit the historic one again.“They chose 10 fans at random and if I made it they got like $1,000, if I hit the rim they got something also,” Morris said. “I hit the rim once and hit the band nine times. They had me throw a girls’ ball and it’s a lot smaller and I was chucking that thing over into the stands.”The longest documented field goal before Morris’ was made by Les Henson of Virginia Tech against Florida State in January 1980. Henson’s shot, which won the game, traveled 89 feet 3 inches, according to the Guinness book.While Morris fondly remembers his record-breaking shot, he was just as proud of his final basket at home against Davidson, a game-winning buzzer-beater.“That won the game so people say: Which shot did you like better. They were both great,” he said. “The longest shot is something that will last forever, that’s another shot that I can say, my last game, my last shot, it went in to win the game, that’s a good memory.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

He’s done NCAA regional games and has officiated in most of the conferences on the east coast.“Definitely would have reviewed it and it definitely would have counted,” Morris said laughing when asked if his shot would have counted with replays available now. “As you watch it, the light goes off when the ball is at midcourt.”Marshall has a permanent reminder of the shot, which was certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest shot ever, on its floor with Morris’ footprints on the court at the spot he hit it from. He lives about a mile from Marshall’s campus and has officiated some preseason scrimmages there.“Other officials I know when they do games at Marshall see the footprints and text or call me to ask if it’s me,” he said. “It’s cool that it’s a permanent reminder.”ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history View commentslast_img read more

Stop charging fees to fish

first_imgDear Editor,I was employed at the Skeldon Estate until that estate closed in 2017. Life for me and my family has since become very hard and difficult.I am unable to find full-time employment since I lost my job at the estate, and I survive by the few days of work I get occasionally.Life is hard for me and my fellow workers. Since the estate closed, some of us are barely surviving. Because of the situation, we are forced to catch fish in the estate’s conservancy in order to provide for our families, but to do that we have to find $500 to pay the Special Purpose Unit every time we go to fish. This is a sum that for many of us is hard to find, and that is only more punishment for us.I remember that, not too long ago, this matter was reported in the news, and we had hoped that the situation would have changed. But this did not happen, and we have to pay.On behalf of my fellow workers, I am asking the SPU to have a heart and stop charging us to feed our families. We already are punishing very much, and we need every help we can get.Yours faithfully,Anthony CarterEx-Skeldon workerlast_img read more

ExxonMobil plans double approach at Liza

first_imgUS oil and gas exploration company ExxonMobil said it is planning a two-pronged development drilling effort at its massive Liza oilDrillship Stena Carrondiscovery off Guyana.This will involve bringing in a pair of offshore rigs for simultaneous operations, according to preliminary development plans filed with Guyanese regulators.During the first phase, the rigs will drill development wells from a pair of drill centres, ExxonMobil said in a supplemental information packet submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency, as part of its application for environmental authorisation for the project. One of the centres is close to the Liza-2 location, which was about 3.6 kilometres west of the Liza discovery. The second lies some 3.9 kilometres north of the Liza-1 well. ExxonMobil, however, cautioned that details of the development programme could change after the filing. Those production centres are paired with corresponding water injection locations set up about 1.6 kilometres east of each of them. There will be a single natural gas injection well at the injection centre closest to the Liza-2 well. Production from the drill centres will be collected via subsea flowlines and sent through subsea manifolds to a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel. Current plans for a FPSO unit call for a conversion of a very large crude carrier with capacity to produce an average of 100,000 barrels per day and store 1.6 million barrels that will be moored 193 kilometres offshore.ExxonMobil said it plans to export the oil to the world market and it has “no current plans” to establish a refinery in Guyana.Engineering works on the FPSO and subsea umbilical, risers and flow line components are ongoing and should be finished in mid-2017.There were previous reports that floater specialists SBM Offshore of the Netherlands and Japan’s Modec have been shortlisted by the US supermajor to provide front-end engineering and design studies on the Liza floater.A six-month FEED process was expected to start in late summer or early autumn, potentially leading on to an engineering, procurement and construction contract.Development drilling is due to begin at the start of 2019 with a pair of yet-unchosen drillships working simultaneously at the two drill centres.“Drillship selection criteria will include historical safety and environmental performance, drillship availability and capability, including well control equipment, operability limits for the Guyana metocean environment, water depth rating and bulk storage capacity,” ExxonMobil said in the planning document.“Based on the water depths in the Liza development area, dynamically-positioned drillships would be used to drill the wells.”First oil for the phase one development will come around the middle of 2020, according to the document.Liza was the largest oil find of 2015, and a successful appraisal at Liza-2 earlier this year, including a drillstem test, led ExxonMobil, along with partners Hess and China National Offshore Oil Corporation subsidiary Nexen, to boost the recoverable resource estimate for the discovery to between 800 million and 1.4 billion barrels.Since that time, Guyana has become a major new focus area for ExxonMobil. The US supermajor snapped up a 50 per cent interest from Israeli explorer Ratio Oil & Gas in the ultra-deepwater Kaieteur block (formerly Block B), north-east of its Stabroek block, where the Liza discovery was drilled last year.In January, it took a 30 per cent operating stake in the Canje block north-east of Liza, along the maritime border with Suriname and now controls 11.4 million acres between the three blocks.ExxonMobil is currently acquiring seismic on Canje and plans to shoot 3D on Kaieteur after the deal is finalised.Meanwhile, the drillship Stena Carron is drilling ahead on ExxonMobil’s Skipjack prospect — its latest wildcat on the play — about 48 kilometres north-west of Liza on the Stabroek block.ExxonMobil secretary Jeff Woodbury said the unit would return to Liza to spud the Liza-3 appraisal after wrapping up Skipjack later this year.last_img read more

CAN YOU HELP AMAZING NIKKI CLIMB ICELANDIC GLACIER FOR LATEST CHALLENGE

first_imgNikki Bradley needs your help as she attempts to climb an Icelandic glacier as part of her latest challenge.Earlier this month, Nikki climbed snowy Errigal Mountain on crutches – her amazing feat gained national recognition and she recently appeared on TV3. She has undergone multiple challenges as part of her campaign to raise awareness regarding her condition Ewing’s Sarcoma.Fighting Fit for Ewing’s has been a huge success – and Nikki is trying to participate in as many challenges as possible as she may lose her leg.Nikki told The Journal, “I had bad news from my consultant in Birmingham last year – I have a suspected infection in my hip and my options for further surgery are as limited as can be.“I’ll find out soon whether I get to keep my leg or not.” However, that hasn’t deterred Nikki – aptly nicknamed ‘The Fighter’ to attempt to scale a glacier in Iceland.Nikki wants to climb the Skaftafell glacier in Iceland – and recent scale of Errigal was in preparation for the Icelandic adventure.However, Nikki needs funding for the trip and has set-up a Go-Fund-Me page and is appealing to businesses and organisations to assist in any way to ensure she can take on the challenge.Nikki said, “Due to the situation with my hip along with rising temperatures in Iceland we have decided to attempt to organise the entire trip in one month!“That’s a lot of pressure on my wee shoulders! I am asking for help from businesses/organisations who could assist in any way to make this idea a reality.“I am determined to do as many physical challenges as I can while I still have my leg. “This is set to be my toughest challenge to date but I am hoping this once in a life time opportunity can happen with your help.“Due to the nature of this challenge it will require a team of professionals to assist me including, a medical professional, a rope access technician and an experienced guide. Funds raised will contribute to these costs.I appreciate everything everyone has done for me so far and I would ask that we keep the momentum going for a little longer!”CAN YOU HELP AMAZING NIKKI CLIMB ICELANDIC GLACIER FOR LATEST CHALLENGE was last modified: January 30th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:challengeEwing’s SarcomaGlacierIcelandicnewsSportlast_img read more

GAA SENSATION: HERO CASSIDY LEAVES COUNTY PANEL AFTER BOOK REVELATIONS

first_imgDONEGAL GAA has been rocked tonight after All Star Kevin Cassidy left the Donegal senior football panel after revelations made by the player in a new GAA book.The Gaoth Dobhair clubman left after a meeting with the team management including Jim McGuinness.It is believed Donegal were unhappy with comments made by Cassidy about the team in the book. Cassidy had outlined how he successfully quelled a potential players revolt in 2010, the year before Jim McGuinness took charge.Cassidy, who was captain that year, revealed the detail in a book called ‘This Is Our Year’, which traces the lives of players from all nine Ulster counties this year.Painting the background to his decision to retire after the 2010 season, a decision he subsequently reversed after a two-hour conversation with McGuinness, Cassidy said players had lost respect for the previous management team headed John Joe Doherty.The extract from the book has drawn a firm response from one of Doherty’s selectors, Tony Boyle, who has contested Cassidy’s opinions of their set-up. Cassidy suggests in the book, which was written by Declan Bogue and that he saw little point in any uprising as their season ran out of steam.“A lot of players had lost respect for John Joe by that stage. Not as a person, just their belief in his team. As captain, I was trying to hold things together. A lot of my friends on the panel were saying to me, ‘f*** this’.“My argument would have been, ‘Look, we’ve put in so much effort, there’s no point throwing the dummy out of the pram now. Let’s play it out and see how it goes’.”Cassidy was a county hero just a three months ago when he scored the winning point in the dramatic All-Ireland quarter-final win over Kildare.Tonight Jim McGuinness confirmed that Cassidy had left the panel but would make no further comment. The Gaoth Dobhair man had defended his participation in the book, asking people to judge him when they had read all of it.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comGAA SENSATION: HERO CASSIDY LEAVES COUNTY PANEL AFTER BOOK REVELATIONS was last modified: November 9th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Donegal GAAgaa rowGaoth DobhairKevin Cassidylast_img read more

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Re “The best job in America?” (Dec. 18): It seems like those who run for, or who are sitting in, council seats are a greedy bunch with delusions of grandeur. The phone bills, the monies spent on cars and office staff and the other “office expenses” have reached the sublime. It would be interesting to see their attendance records. Some of these folks are really sincere and want to do an honest day’s work. But there are others suffering from ego and power problems. Those in the same types of office in New York and Chicago, etc., settle for a lot less salary, but seem to exercise procedures governing their cities as well as our elected officials. I still remember how quickly they voted themselves a pay raise recently. Meanwhile, our city budget leaves much to be settled still. Ira Kaplan Woodland Hills Proper dress Re “Staying abreast” (Viewpoint, Dec. 18): I wanted to thank you for the article about the horrendous attire of today’s “newswomen.” I just don’t understand it. The male anchors are well-dressed and businesslike, while the women are anything but. This is not what we fought for in the quest for equal opportunity. I don’t consider myself to be old-fashioned, but there is a proper time for dressing professionally, and the delivery of the day’s news into people’s homes via television is one of them. Madeleine Smith Calabasas Worse than Nixon Re “Bush defends orders to spy” (Dec. 18): It’s beginning to look a lot like … the Nixon administration, spying and wiretapping everywhere you go. Only this time Bush came out and admitted it like it’s something to be proud of. At least Nixon knew it was wrong because he tried to hide it. Bush called the anonymous person who leaked it to the press “a shameful act” when he is the one who should be ashamed. He should also be impeached. He’s turning this country, which was founded on freedom, into a dictatorship with him and his Spiro T. Agnew-like crony, Dick Cheney, at the helm. This is truly frightening. He must be impeached. He is worse than Richard Nixon. Let’s get rid of him and Cheney for Christmas. Pauline Roth Santa Clarita Going to town Re “Bush defends orders to spy” (Dec. 18): Regarding the Bush government’s shameless spying on American citizens: He knows when you are sleeping. He knows when you’re awake. He knows if you are evil or good; ’cause you’re in his database. We better watch out. We better beware. He’s taking our freedoms in a fog of fear. He’s the Pres-i-dent of the U-ni-ted States. Bruce Joffe Piedmont We’re on our way Re “Bush defends orders to spy” (Dec. 18): The practice of totalitarian regimes secretly spying on their citizens leads from secret spies to secret police, to secret torture, to secret prisons. We’re on our way – get used to it. Ed Rosas La Cañada Flintridge The forgotten Re “Best present” (Your Opinions, Dec. 15): Daniel F. Taylor is thankful for living in the “greatest country on the planet.” I am happy for you. You are fortunate. However, you should take a moment to think about those that may not feel so fortunate – like people without jobs, the homeless, those in jail, or those sick and uninsured, or those forced to live in the slums because that is all they can afford for themselves and their families. Let’s not forget the soldiers fighting our “just wars” or the disabled veterans. These are the unfortunate, the forgotten Americans. The other side of the American dream. These are the ones that the United States of America, “the greatest country on the planet,” has failed and whose Bill of Rights does not reach. Bernard Soto Sherman Oakslast_img read more
