first_img– but cricket in Berbice likely to continue its tumultuous existence CRICKET in Berbice and by extension Guyana is likely to continue its tumultuous existence following the Berbice Cricket Board’s elections which were held yesterday at the Classic International Hotel and Resort in Corriverton.At the end of the highly contentious elections, president of the Guyana Cricket Umpires Council (GCUC), Dhierandranauth Somwaru was voted in as the BCB president, which created much debate among the majority of clubs and sub-association members, who are now contemplating legal proceedings.Disgruntled club members are claiming that the elections were not held in keeping with the Cricket Administration Act, since according to them, some 22 voting delegates were debarred from or refused to take part in voting for various reasons.While the media was not allowed to witness the elections, the day’s proceedings started on a sour note, with former BCB president Roy Baijnauth leaving the venue after there were some issues pertaining to the legitimacy of the notices as some club members were seeking entry into the venue.Godwyn Allicock (blue shirt) seen verifying the legitimacy of the notices as some club members were seeking entry into the venue.

Bynoe was expected to perform duties as the Returning Officer.However, when the situation returned to some normalcy, the elections got underway during which there were heated arguments which could be heard from a far distance.It is understood that former Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) president Drubahdur was nominated as the Returning Officer by 18 members prior to the start of proceedings, an act which created the tension.Thereafter, in checking the eligibility of potential candidates, four clubs were not allowed voting rights since they failed to meet the constitutional requirements, according to one observer.The observer noted that each non-playing club must pay their respective fees in order to retain voting rights. However, after failing to adhere to that requirement, Kildonan, Fort Canje, Guymine, and Mt Sinai were not allowed to cast their votes.This left the other clubs, along with the three sub-associations candidates to exercise their voting rights.The nomination for president was then opened, with Somwaru being the first to be nominated. However, the process was closed immediately after by the Returning Officer, despite Dennis DeAndread of the Upper Corentyne sub-association signalling his intention to make a nomination.This left Somwaru’s rival, Hilbert Foster, with no chance of entering the race. Thereafter, Chronicle Sport was told that the three sub-associations along with candidates from Albion, Port Mourant, Blairmont, Police and Chesney, casted their votes. Candidates from Whim were absent from the elections.Hilbert Foster and other members of his team waiting patiently to enter the election venue.

Following the elections, Secretary of the GCB, Anand Sanasie said the elections were held in accordance with the Cricket Administration Bill.The elections were held following a ruling delivered by Justice Navindra Singh on September 8th last. Yesterday’s elections were the first since 2014.last_img read more

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoDETROIT — The jerseys still said “Wisconsin” Friday, butthe team wearing them didn’t look like the Badgers. As a second-half collapsedoomed UW in its Sweet 16 loss to Davidson, nothing about the team seemedright.Wisconsin came into the game riding a 12-game winningstreak, the last five of which came in the Big Ten and NCAA tournaments. In thefirst two rounds of the Big Dance Wisconsin had averaged a 16-point margin ofvictory, but against Davidson the Badgers fell apart, losing by 17 points. Thedouble-digit defeat was the biggest since Duke pounded Wisconsin in November.“It got away from us,” forward Greg Stiemsma said. “Wedidn’t stick to our roles or the things we’ve been doing well for the lastcouple of weeks, and it hurt us.”The nation’s best scoring defense during the regularseason, Wisconsin uncharacteristically allowed Davidson’s Stephen Curry toscore 33 points against them — the highest by an opponent this season.In its second-round game, Wisconsin kept Kansas Statefrom making a single 3-pointer. Davidson, however, knocked down 12 threes, themost an opponent has hit against UW all year.Things weren’t much better on the offensive end.Despite having a notable size advantage, UW was actuallyoutscored in the paint 22-18 over the course of the game and outrebounded byDavidson in the second half.“They really pressured the ball and kept us from reallygetting the ball in the post,” forward Marcus Landry said. “We’ve seen thatbefore. We didn’t really execute as well as we have in the past.”Without the ability to get it to the rim, Wisconsinnever really found a rhythm on offense. From the outset the Badgers stoppedgetting the ball in the post as much as they usually did, instead shooting 17first half 3-pointers and turning the game into a shooting contest with theWildcats.“They really went to the three ball very quickly ratherthan staying in the swing,” Davidson coach Bob McKillop said. “That allowed usto get into the open court.”Quick misses made it possible for Davidson to get goodlooks in transition and was part of the reason for the Wildcats’ 18 fast breakpoints.Wisconsin also struggled with the full-court pressurethat Davidson applied. The Wildcat attack made it difficult for the Badgers tosettle in to an offense and helped to force 12 UW turnovers.“They got us in situations we didn’t want to be in,”forward Joe Krabbenhoft said. “They got us running around against their press,and you have to give them credit for taking us out of what we do best.”Even when Wisconsin started to show signs of its oldself, drawing fouls and cutting the Davidson lead down to a single possessionin the second half, UW was unable to keep it up for very long.“They really outworked us, out-scrapped us,” Landrysaid. “We tried to pull it back. We had it back within three, but we kind ofgot away from doing some things.”With its hustle and confidence in a system, Davidson wasable to win by, simply put, beating Wisconsin at its own game.“They outplayed us,” Krabbenhoft said. “It seemed likethey were outrebounding us. Getting loose balls on the glass. Getting to thefree-throw line. A lot of things we like to do they just did better tonight.”?Hurt by Hughes’ injuryPerhaps the biggest difference for Wisconsin was theabsence of guard Trevon Hughes. Hughes, coming off of a career-high 25-pointeffort against Kansas State, hurt himself early in the first half Friday and,minus a brief four-minute stretch in the second half, was forced to sit therest of the game.“It wouldn’t have been a bad thing to have a penetrator,a guy who could take care of it,” Badger coach Bo Ryan said. “And,unfortunately for him, he wasn’t able to contribute.”Hughes finished the game scoreless in 12 minutes ofaction.“I really wish Trevon had been healthy,” Ryan said. “Itwould have been a better game.”last_img read more
