Allen scores 19 as Utah rolls past Weber State 60-49

first_img Associated Press FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Timmy Allen scored 19 points to lead the Utah past Weber State 60-49 in the Beehive Classic on Saturday.Riley Battin added nine points and 10 rebounds and Mikael Jantunen and Branden Carlson each had nine points for the Utes (8-2).Jerrick Harding scored 17 points, Cody John had 15 and Kham Davis contributed 11 for the Wildcats, who fell to 3-6.Utah led 31-25 at the half after overcoming an early six-point deficit. After the break, Battin scored four quick points, Carlson dunked and the Utes never relinquished a double-digit lead the rest of the way.In the second half, both teams had a hard time finding the bottom of the net as they combined to shoot 2 for 18 during one stretch.But the Utes got buckets around the basket and if they missed, they tallied 11 points in the second half on second chances to go along with a 47-34 rebounding advantage.The Utes played without their starting point guard Rylan Jones, who was second on the team in minutes played, but had bruised ribs.On the other side, the Wildcats finally have a mostly healthy team after a rash of injuries at the beginning of the season but haven’t been able to find an offensive rhythm.Preseason Big Sky MVP Harding averaged 28 points in Weber State’s two wins last week but didn’t start scoring until the Wildcats were down big in the second half.The Wildcats had 14 missed layups and dunks against Utah’s extraordinary length. The Utes’ aggressive switching defense on Weber State’s perimeter screens kept the Wildcats off balance.BEEHIVE WON’T BE BACKThe three-year experiment of the Beehive Classic is over. The annual doubleheader featuring Utah’s top four basketball schools at the Vivint Smart Home Arena, the home of the Utah Jazz, didn’t ever capture the imagination of fans. Instead of the intensity of an in-state rivalry, the arena was filled to just a quarter of the lower bowl with fans in a huge arena that had the buzz of an exhibition contest.The matchup was the first for the Wildcats and Utes since 2011 after a legacy of playing each other nearly every year. Utah now leads the series 27-14.BIG PICTUREWeber State: Against a defense with some length and athleticism like Utah’s, the Wildcats had a hard time generating good shots and making them. They converted just 33% of their field goals and got nothing in the mid-range as the Utes ruled the paint and harassed the Wildcats on the 3-point line.Utah: The youth of the Utes— with no seniors and just three juniors — was apparent again, as it has been through the early part of the season, with unforced turnovers and poor shot selection early in the game and again late. But Utah did enough to win their fourth straight going into a big matchup with Kentucky.UP NEXTWeber State: Hosts Bethesda (California) on Tuesday.Utah: Plays No. 8 Kentucky in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Tiffany’s Show, Pattaya Mail support Ladyboy water-volleyball tournament

first_imgWe can’t overlook the contributions to the upcoming 2013 Pattaya Ladyboy Water-Volleyball Competition made by the competing ladyboys and the bars where they are employed.  Without them and their time, given freely, there wouldn’t be a tournament and consequently our worthy charities wouldn’t benefit.  Then there are the financial contributors, both personal and corporate, who provide the funds that go directly to our charities.  But it’s not just financial contributors to which we are indebted.  This year we’re happy to have the Pattaya Mail Media Group once more giving us an outlet from which to promote the charity tournament and highlight the tremendous contribution the ladyboys are making to their communities.  And of course there are our gracious tournament hosts at the Areca Lodge on Soi Diana.But we’d be fibbing if we didn’t say we were especially thrilled to have the participation of Tiffany’s Show this year!  The world famous Tiffany’s Show Pattaya is the original transgender cabaret show here and is currently in its 38th year. Its showgirls are paragons of both beauty and talent, and the show itself is a huge tourist draw for Pattaya.  Through the efforts of Pattaya Mail, Tiffany’s Show Pattaya has generously agreed to donate five tickets to the Miss International Queen competition, which will be part of the charity raffle held on the evening following the tournament.The Miss International Queen competition is a once-a-year event presented by Tiffany’s Show that draws transgender women from all over the world to compete for the title.  This year the event will be held on Nov. 1, only a week after the Pattaya Ladyboy Water-Volleyball Competition.  The tickets always sell out well in advance, so we expect these will be popular items for the charity raffle — in fact we expect some of the tournament spectators will be outbid by the volleyball contestants!All of these efforts are critical to the success of this year’s charity event, and Pattaya Mail, Tiffany Show and Areca Lodge all have our utmost heartfelt thanks.But of course raising money for charities is what the tournament is all about.  With that in mind, I’m happy to say that we are now on track to to raise 700,000 baht for said charities: Pattaya Rotary Club’s Water4Life program, Pattaya’s HEARTT 2000, Bangkok’s St. Camillus Foundation of Thailand’s Camillian Home program, and Phuket’s The Life Home Project.  Thanks to many generous financial contributors and sponsors, we have more than doubled last year’s charitable contribution of 285,854 baht.To date 86 individuals have pledged 110 sponsorships of one or more of the bars competing in the tournament.  That amounts to 350,000 baht — once again, that alone puts us over last year’s mark.  To all of them, on behalf of the charities involved and the ladyboys in the tournament, I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you.But this year we also have a corporate sponsor on board in NB Surveys Thailand Co. Ltd., the Thai branch of NB Surveys Global.  To say that we are thrilled to have such an august company sponsoring the tournament would be an understatement.With headquarters in Aberdeen, Scotland, NB Global provides surveying services to the oil and gas industry, onshore and offshore, and has offices in Australia, Brunei, India, Malaysia and United Arab Emirates, in addition to its office in Bangkok.Established in 2001, NB Surveys Thailand began with just one expat employee, but has steadily grown over the ensuing decade to now include several local Thai staff in both the survey department and the office operations.  To NB Surveys we must also extend our heartfelt thanks as well.The 2013 Pattaya Ladyboy Water-Volleyball Competition is slated for Saturday, October 26.  For more information or to see how you can help, email us at [email protected], or visit us on the web at www.lbwvb.com.last_img read more
