Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa The Pistons had 18 points off Sacramento turnovers, while the Kings only had nine. They have recorded more points off turnovers than their opponent in nine of their 10 games.“This wasn’t our best game, but we were able to get some stops when we needed them,” Harris said. “We’re building off each other, and that’s a good thing.”Sacramento (1-8) lost its seventh straight game and gave up more than 100 points for the sixth time in a row. Zach Randolph led the Kings with 19 points, and Bogdan Bogdanovic added 14.“This is a learning experience,” Kings coach Dave Joerger said. “It was a small-ball game tonight, and they were able to hurt us with that.”Back-to-back 3-pointers by Reggie Jackson and Harris gave the Pistons a 77-69 lead late in the third quarter. Detroit led 85-74 heading into the fourth, and held off a brief Sacramento surge early in the period.ADVERTISEMENT “That wasn’t an easy win by any means,” Van Gundy said. “We didn’t have a lot of energy, and their starting lineup gave us a lot of trouble, but we were able to grind it out.”The Pistons scored the game’s first 10 points, but Randolph scored 10 points in the first quarter to keep the Kings close. Sacramento led briefly in the second quarter, but Bradley’s 13 points were enough to give Detroit a 52-49 lead at halftime.“It seemed like we were down four points around 80 times tonight, but we could never put together the big run we needed,” Joerger said. “We talked about how much ball pressure they use, and then we would come down three times and they would deflect three passes.”TIP-INSKings: Randolph’s first-quarter scoring started moments after Michigan State’s winning field goal against Penn State was shown on the Little Caesars Arena scoreboard, accompanied by the MSU fight song.

Dog show’s young handlers take a grown-up sport in stride

first_imgBiggie’s handler, Esteban Farias, called the dog “a dream come true” after a tragedy: a previous pug pal suddenly died during a routine walk.About 5,000 junior handlers nationwide are registered with the American Kennel Club, a governing body for Westminster and many other dog shows. Young handlers also can compete through 4-H and other kennel clubs.AKC “junior showmanship” competitions are open to youngsters ages 9 to 18. They’re judged on their presentation, not their dogs’ particulars.But there’s no age minimum for handlers in the breed rings, a point driven home to Thanksgiving Day TV watchers who saw (emphasis on the “awwww”) 6-year-old Mackenzie Huston and her long-coat Chihuahua in a semifinal round at the Kennel Club of Philadelphia’s National Dog Show.Mackenzie sometimes feels scared as she waits to show. But “when I get in the ring, I don’t feel nervous,” says the now 7-year-old girl from Bellmawr, New Jersey.She isn’t going to Westminster — yet — but super-young handlers have shown there, including then-7-year-old Raina McCloskey last year (with a borzoi, no less.)Westminster’s 95 junior invitees are “very competitive, they’re very talented and very, very good,” show chairman David Helming said. Westminster is boosting its top juniors’ prize, a scholarship, from $6,000 to $10,000 this year. The eight finalists all get some education money.Dog showing requires an investment of money and, particularly, time. Junior handlers can spend hours per week training, grooming and exercising their dogs, weekends traveling to shows and years balancing it all with school, other activities and friends.All that to don dress clothes and notch accomplishments many of their peers can’t quite understand. (“You’re running around in a circle with dogs?“)But young handlers say it’s worth it for the bond they develop with their animals. John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding MOST READ In this Feb. 13, 2017, file photo, Raina McCloskey, from Delta, Pa., shows Briar, a borzoi, during the 141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York. The Westminster Kennel Club competition is best known for the dog crowned Best in Show, but it’s also a showcase for young handlers who sometimes go up against grown-ups. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer, File)NEW YORK — Fenric Towell isn’t nervous about his first time competing at the nation’s top dog show. After all, he’s heading to the Westminster Kennel Club ring this week with 100-plus shows under his belt, a record of wins and a champion Lakeland terrier.So what if he’s only 11?ADVERTISEMENT Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises “I’m going to try to think of it as a normal show,” the Oklahoma City boy says. “I just try to focus on the highest place that I can get.”Westminster is best known for the dog that will be crowned best in show Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden. As judging began Monday night, a borzoi named Lucy won the hound group, a pug dubbed Biggie won the toy group and a bichon frise called Flynn took the nonsporting group. Slick, a border collie, won the herding group.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBut the event is also a showcase for youngsters who can handle both dogs and grown-up competition.While there’s a special contest for junior handlers, many also exhibit their dogs in the breed judging that goes toward best in show. They go up against adults in an atmosphere that prizes poise and formality. “You go and spend time with your best friend,” says Emma Rogers, who’s returning to Westminster as a 2016 juniors finalist (older sister Sophia won).Juniors come away with human friends all over the country, plus an education in animal behavior and patient teamwork.“You have to be very resilient,” says Erin LaPlante, 17, of Caledonia, Wisconsin. “You’re going to lose far more than you’re going to win, but you learn far more than you win.”About five years after her dog show debut ended in tears, she won juniors at the AKC National Championship in December and is returning to Westminster. So is sister Maren, 13.Their family had never shown dogs before Erin started, at the suggestion of their Doberman’s breeder. Molly Anne Forsyth, on the other hand, comes from two generations of breeders of greyhound-like Salukis. But “we trust each other even more from showing together,” says the 16-year-old from Davis, California.For parents, the sport requires acclimating to the occasional double take when a 6-year-old uses the word “bitch” —appropriately, for a female dog — plus a lot of driving and helping out.“I can dress a little boy in a suit in my sleep,” laughs Alysha Towell. Her daughter and six of her seven sons, including Fenric, either show dogs or soon will.Cortlund, 17, was a juniors finalist at Westminster last year, earning a turn in the big ring at Madison Square Garden. He placed fourth and is returning this year.“It’s not like any other sport,” he says. “If you play soccer or football and quit, they can live without you. You can’t quit on a dog.” Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss01:06Palace: Up to MTRCB to ban animated movie Magellan in PH01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City LATEST STORIES “It’s hard because they’re top people, and we’re just kids,” says Faith Rogers, 14, of Bordentown, New Jersey, now at her fourth Westminster. But when she started showing dogs at age 9, she decided: “This is what I love, and I didn’t really care if there were older people or not.”Or, as twin sister Emma puts it, “Let’s just show ’em what we got.”Dogs ranging from wee Chihuahuas to rangy Irish wolfhounds showed what they’ve got in Monday night’s group judging, helped by adult handlers.Lucy “knows when there’s a big stage,” said handler Valerie Nunes-Atkinson. Handlers, meanwhile, need to “go Zen” so their dogs won’t pick up jitters, Bill McFadden said after leading Flynn.Slick has won best of breed previously at Westminster, but Monday’s herding group win “means a lot to us,” handler Jamie Clute said.ADVERTISEMENT NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencerscenter_img Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Globe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
