Louisville, shaking off another sluggish start, finished the national championship game and the college basketball season with a bang, fending off Michigan to capture its third NCAA Tournament title Monday night at the Georgia Dome.The Cardinals’ 82-76 victory was born of unmatched depth and poise. It also helped that they were inspired by injured guard Kevin Ware and coached by Rick Pitino, who became the first to ever coach two different teams to the championship.Not only that, but Pitino earlier Monday was named an inductee into the Basketball Hall of Fame.“I had the 13 toughest guys I’ve ever coached,” Pitino said. “I’m just amazed they could accomplish everything we put out there.”It was not easy. Led by player of the year Trey Burke (24 points) and freshman Spike Albrecht, who had 17-first-half points, Michigan led by 12 points in the first half and seemed in control of the game. It was then that Louisville’s toughness showed up. Reserve Luke Hancock, who was huge in the semifinal win over Wichita State, delivered again, hitting four straight three-pointers that actually put the Cardinals in front by one just before halftime.Michigan got two free throws to earn a one-point halftime advantage, but Louisville had built momentum. Hancock went on to become the Final Four’s most outstanding player for his career-high 22 points Monday night.But he had plenty of help. Point guard Peyton Siva was outstanding in attacking the Michigan defense and forward Chane Behanon (15 points, 12 rebounds) was an inside force, as Louisville pulled ahead 76-66 and did what it needed to do to earn the title.Ware, the guard from metro Atlanta whose legged snapped in gruesome fashion in the Duke win, cut down what remained of the nets in the Cardinals’ post-championship celebration. Ware’s poise and strength got them pass Duke and his presence on the sideline at the Georgia Dome fueled them.Still, some players said they were inspired by something else. Pitino told the team he would get a tattoo if they won the national championship.Siva (18 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists) called it, “Our biggest motivation.”Pitino said he would fulfill his promise. What’s a tattoo to a man who had the week he has, which included the Hall of Fame announcement, his horse winning the Santa Anita Derby to set up a Kentucky Derby run, and his son, Richard, getting the coaching job at Minnesota?The championship is what he wanted most, and Pitino and the Cardinal nation can bask in that achievement.
ZIKA Press Release Related Items:annamae williams, cockburn town medical center, Dengue Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Health advises on best practices to avoid mosquito bites Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppGrand Turk, October 1, 2014 — It was said to be an emotionally horrible scene on Monday morning when 53 year old Annamae Williams was pronounced dead at the Cockburn Town Medical Center in Grand Turk. The woman, described as a sweet part of the Osprey Beach Hotel family and mother of five was said to have severe chest pains, severe headaches and problems breathing before she died, suddenly in hospital. Moments ago in a phone interview with Magnetic Media, her son, Sonny Williams confirmed that he is still too angry to speak on recording but did share that he is outraged at how his mother was treated at hospital. Sonny said he took Annamae to hospital initially last week Thursday with chest pains and headaches. Sonny said to us, ‘it was like the doctors did not even want to touch her… nothing was done, she was there for about two hours crying and then she was sent home…”The next day, they returned with Annamae at hospital. This time she was admitted according to Sonny and by Saturday morning he believes his mother was hiding the severity of her illness from the family. We are told they wanted to fly her out for medical care; Sonny said, “they didn’t know how to treat her…”Fast forward to Monday morning, “she was gasping for air when I got there” this broken sounding son explained. Sonny told me he believes she was there for quite sometime like that and he tried to get her an oxygen mask before he left the hospital. We are told his departure was in a rage, highly emotional about what he felt was poor attention and inadequate care. A family friend said this son, whom Annamae called ‘her husband’ was an emotional wreck, that ‘he hollar’ at the news of his mother’s sudden passing.Social media debate is that Annamae died of Dengue Fever. We tried to get confirmation from the Minister of Health, Hon Porsha Smith, whom Magnetic Media had reached out to again since Monday for latest updates and latest initiatives. No reply at all. Sonny told me, “Dr Grant is the one who told me she died of Dengue Fever.”Dengue Fever has been spreading fastest of the two mosquito borne illnesses in Turks and Caicos; spreading fastest in Grand Turk according to Environmental Health Director Kenrick Neely at a town hall meeting held in June at CHHS auditorium. Health: Mosquitoes are to be taken seriously
