USC drops its second home game in a row

first_imgLooking to avenge their 61-42 loss to No. 9 UCLA on the road earlier in the season, the USC women’s basketball team came out scoring at a much faster pace on its home court Sunday.But the end result was the same, as the Women of Troy dropped their fourth straight game to their crosstown rivals, 74-67.Not enough · Coming off the bench, senior guard Jacki Gemelos finished with a team-high 16 points Sunday, but the Women of Troy were once again outdone by their crosstown rivals. The loss drops USC to .500 on the year in conference play. – Tim Tran | Daily Trojan “It was a heck of a basketball game. UCLA proved why they’re the No. 10 team in the country,” said USC coach Michael Cooper. “I have to commend our team, these young ladies were playing their hearts out. If nothing else, we made [UCLA] shake a little bit.”The game marked the fourth loss for the Women of Troy (13-8, 5-5) in their last five games, and their second straight at home.The teams traded baskets throughout most of the first half, with three lead changes and four ties.With the score deadlocked 14-14 with 9:53 remaining in the first half, it looked as though it would be a defensive battle between the Pac-10 foes.But both teams started a flurry of scoring before halftime.The Bruins (19-2, 9-1) relied on offensive rebounding and second-chance points to stake out a 37-33 halftime lead.Senior guard Darxia Morris and junior forward Jasmine Dixon both scored well above their point per game averages, with Morris (12.5) scoring 24 points while Dixon (12.1) chipped in 23.Dixon briefly left the game with 2:23 remaining with a shoulder injury.But she returned before halftime, laying in a basket with less than a minute remaining to give the Bruins their largest lead of the game, 37-29.“[Dixon] is a solid post player. She works hard for every point she gets.” said USC junior guard Ashley Corral.But the Women of Troy managed to keep up with their rivals, forcing a couple of turnovers in the final minute of the first half to close the deficit to 37-33.UCLA came into the game with the better statistical defense, but USC forced the Bruins into 17 turnovers in the game while committing only 14 of their own, most of which came in the last few minutes of the game.“Once we got across half-court, we handled their trap [defense],” Corral said. “I didn’t think their pressure affected us a whole lot. I thought we did a lot better [than last time].”Senior guard Jacki Gemelos led the Trojans in scoring with 16 points, and kept USC within striking distance throughout the game.“I just found the open gaps and took my shot when it was open,” Gemelos said.Gemelos converted her third three-pointer of the game early in the second half to bring her team within one point, 45-44.She finished with a team-high 16 points off the bench.After that, the teams traded scoring runs. The Bruins went on a 12-4 run to gain their largest lead of the game.But the Women of Troy refused to collapse, responding with a 12-5 run to close the deficit to 62-60 with 3:56 remaining in the game.But the Women of Troy couldn’t quite regain the lead. With more than a minute remaining, UCLA collected a crucial offensive rebound while up 66-62.“When you play a top-10 team, it’s about the little things,” Cooper said. “Obviously, the way we were outrebounded [37-25] didn’t help.”USC junior guard Briana Gilbreath fouled Bruin guard Doreena Campbell, who calmly converted both free throws.The Trojans turned the ball over on their next two possessions, nailing their own coffin and sealing the game for the Bruins.The Women of Troy now sit at fifth place in the Pac-10, half a game behind Arizona State and California, which own 6-5 conference records.USC continues the second half of conference play with trips to Oregon and Oregon State next week.______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________last_img read more

Monsoon on course, Goa issues safety advisory

first_imgWith moderate to heavy rains expected to lash various parts of Goa over the next few days, Drishti Marine, the State-appointed lifeguard agency has issued a monsoon advisory instructing visitors not to venture into the sea. The Goa government shuts down beaches for swimming and water sports activities from June to August every year as the sea tends to be extremely rough and choppy. The State also bans fishing for 61days from June 1 to July 31, with nearly 1,500 trawlers pulling their nets off the territorial waters for the entire period of the ban.According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), heavy rainfall with high-speed winds is likely to occur at isolated places over north and south Goa. Pre-monsoon showers commenced earlier this week with light showers across the State. Drishti’s nearly 600-strong lifeguard force mans Goa’s beaches through the year. Owing to the present weather conditions, red flags have been posted across all beaches indicating the strictly non-swim zones.Ravi Shankar, CEO, Drishti Marine, said on Monday, “Even wading into the waters is not advisable during monsoons. Our team of lifeguards, trained to carry out rescues even in rough weather, is present along the coast to monitor the weather conditions.”Drishti advises visitors to avoid rocky areas, cliffs, and hills on the shoreline. These are very slippery during monsoon season. The height of the waves, intensity and frequencies is inconsistent, can be very high and one can easily get washed away. All rocky areas around the fort areas in Anjuna, Vagator in North coastal belt and Tiracol in South coastal belt are out of bounds during monsoons.River bathing including water sports activities is restricted and can only be done under the supervision of trained and certified operators.In case of a dry spell over the next few months and depending on weather conditions, Drishti may open up a few beach stretches so that visitors can wade into the waters.“Goa’s coastline is quite complex and requires mapping every morning. If weather conditions are favourable, we may open up some of the beaches for visitors who want to wade into the water. These zones can be identified by the red and yellow flags and will be decided on a daily basis. However, even in such conditions, swimming is not advisable due to the presence of underwater currents and rip tides,” cautions Mr. Ravi Shankar.Drishti has also cautioned adults to keep an eye on children while on the beach and to not allow them to venture into the waters unattended.last_img read more
