Speaking of the 31-year-old, Robinson told Football Insider: “I wouldn’t care about what he has said about Spurs in the past, look at what Mourinho has said about Spurs in the past. “If Willian became available, he is a top-quality player and if there is anyway Mourinho could convince him to come to Spurs, he’d be a brilliant addition.Advertisement “I think he’d fit into the squad perfectly as he’s a top-class player and you know what’s gone on in the past is irrelevant. “If he performs in a Tottenham shirt, there won’t be a problem.

Russell Westbrook wants to see boundaries in place preventing NBA fans from touching the players on court after a young supporter appeared to push him in Denver.The Thunder star had 22 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists in a 121-112 loss Tuesday to the Nuggets. “He hit me, so I told his dad, ‘Be careful, you can’t just have your son hitting people, just let him know,'” he said.”You’ve got to control your kids. It’s that simple. He’s responsible for his kid. Watch the game, sit there, have fun, enjoy it.”There’s too much leeway for all the fans to touch the players and get away with it. We can’t react and do the things that we need to do to protect ourselves.”It’s important that they understand — kids, whoever it is, dads, moms — that they can say whatever they want, as long as it’s respectful, but the touching, for me, is off limits.” Brad Stevens on Celtics’ big loss to Raptors: We’re taking too many shortcuts defensively But video of one particular incident involving Westbrook went viral as a child courtside stood up and appeared to push the point guard after a foul was called.Russell Westbrook pulled the dad card on a Nuggets fan after the kid gave him a little push. pic.twitter.com/b4nBTXlV9r— ESPN (@espn) February 27, 2019Westbrook turned and stared at the fan, before bending down to address him and his father, later detailing the conversation to reporters as he bemoaned fans’ ability to physically interact with players.

Hop in the stands?”There’s got to be some type of rule or some type of boundary set that you can’t allow that.”
REV, among the league favorites, improved to 11-4 overall, 1-0 in conference. Yucaipa had its three-game winning streak stopped in dropping to 6-7, 0-1. “We did a good job with the press,” Berich said. “And we hit some threes, too.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Yucaipa turned the ball over 22 times, including 14 in the first half. Brandon Dowdy scored 27 points, making seven three-pointers, and Darnell Ferguson added 20 points despite being limited in the second half with foul trouble. “Darnell does a lot for us,” Berich said. “He’s got a cool head and does everything well. He might get in some foul trouble if we press a lot.” Plenty of teams will have trouble handling Yucaipa’s big man, 6-foot-10 senior Jared Anthony. Anthony finished with 21 points and 12 rebounds, but he was limited to no points (on 0-of-4 shooting) in the first quarter and two points in the first quarter and a half. YUCAIPA – Redlands East Valley boys basketball coach Bill Berich didn’t hide his game plan against Yucaipa. He aimed to press the bigger Yucaipa team, and the plan was effective as the Wildcats got off to a quick start en route to a 71-45 rout of Yucaipa in the Citrus Belt League opener for both schools at Yucaipa High School. https://embed.sendtonews.com/oembed/?fk=bRolOyFR&cid=8121&sound=off&format=json&offsetx=0&offsety=0&floatwidth=400&floatposition=bottom-right&float=on “We knew what they were going to do,” Yucaipa coach Yon Okorodudu said. “It wasn’t a surprise. They’re so talented and so well-coached. We had to do a better job against the press. And we missed some open looks.” REV jumped out to a quick lead, and a 19-4 run late in the first quarter and early in the second gave the Wildcats a 32-12 lead. Yucaipa never got closer than 18 points thereafter. “We needed to shut down two of their big three players to have a chance in the game,” Okorodudu said of REV’s Ferguson, Dowdy and Lance Evbuomwan. Evbuomwan scored only two points but grabbed eight rebounds. Dowdy, who had four three-pointers and 16 points in the first half, and Ferguson, who added 10 rebounds, weren’t shut down at all.

A small slip on lap four, however, saw him dropped once again as the front-running trio piled on the pace. Stander and Spain’s Jose Antonio Hermida, the winner of the 2010 World Championships, became the closest chasers to the men in medal position.There appeared to be a slight slowing by Kulhavy, Schurter and Fontana on the penultimate lap as they prepared themselves for a tactical, lung-bursting showdown on the seventh and final lap of the course, but it wasn’t enough to let Stander and Hermida close the distance.Czech ace Kulhavy snatched a vital inside line on the last sharp climb before the finish to edge ahead of Schurter for the victory. Fontana, meanwhile, lost his saddle on the last lap, which allowed the two chasers to close the gap on the bronze medal winner. Hermida then sneaked in front of Stander on the finishing line, just four seconds behind Fontana, to take fourth place.Stander’s finishing time of 1:29:37 was half-a-minute behind the winner, Kulhavy, his team-mate in non-Olympic action on Team Specialized.Five seconds off the podiumAfterwards, Stander told reporters: “Fifth, being 10 seconds off the podium [he was actually only five seconds behind Fontana] you can’t be disappointed with that.“Obviously you’re here for a medal, but I gave it my all. I prepared as much as I could and put absolutely everything I could into this year. It was just 10 seconds too slow, I guess.“With two laps to go on that steep climb the guys absolutely smashed it. I was on my max and there’s nothing you can do.“It’s a very fair sport, you give what you’ve got, and if you don’t have it you don’t have it, and the top three guys deserved it today.”Fellow South African Philip Buys suffered a fall at the start of the race, which left him in last place on the first lap. It was a tough break and the going from there was tough. He eventually finished in 35th place, just over 11 minutes behind the winner.Just how tough was the competition? Consider the case of France’s Jean-Christophe Peraud. He raced for AG2R La Mondiale at the recent Tour De Franc where he finished in 44th place overall out of the 153 finishers. At Hadleigh Farm, he was the 29th of 42 finishers.Men’s marathonThe only other South African representatives in action on the final day were Lusapho April, Stephen Mokoka and Coolboy Ngamole in the men’s marathon.April was the highest finisher of the three, clocking exactly two hours and 19 minutes to finish in 43rd place. Mokoka claimed 49th place, less than a minute later, while Ngamole failed to finish.Uganda’s Stephen Kiprotich raced to victory in 2:08:01 to win his country’s first medal since John Akii-Bua captured the 400 metres hurdles title in Munich 40 years ago in a world record time.
by Dora Doss, M.S., SLP-CCCFeeding issues frequently come up in MFLN Family Development Early Intervention webinar evaluations as a topic caregivers struggle to address with young finicky eaters.

This was India’s biggest win against the West Indies in the Caribbeans in terms of runs. COMMENTS cricket June 26, 2017 SHARE Ajinkya Rahane struck a brilliant century before the bowlers dished out a disciplined show as India thrashed a hapless West Indies by 105 runs in a lopsided contest in the second cricket one-dayer here.Put into bat, India piled on 310 for 5 after rain delayed the start of the match by two hours and reduced it to a 43-over-a-side affair, riding on Rahane’s 103 off 104 balls and a blistering 66-ball 97 from captain Virat Kohli.The Indian bowlers then took over as they restricted West Indies to 205 for 6 to put the visitors 1-0 up in the five- match ODI series.Surprisingly, the West Indians did not show any intent of chasing down the big target of 311 once they found the asking rate to be too high in the final 10 overs. They just went through their motions and batted out the remaining overs.For India, the bowlers bowled an impeccable line and length with Kuldeep Yadav (3/50) being the most successful among them. The chinaman bowler got his first wicket of his ODI career. He did not get to bowl in his debut match in the first ODI which was abandoned due to rain. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/9) had a fine seam bowling spell as he rocked the West Indies run chase by grabbing the first two wickets by the third over. He removed Kieran Powell (0) in the third delivery (0) and then had Jason Mohammed (0) in his next over.There was a brief period of some fight by the home side when wicketkeeper batsman Shai Hope (81) and Evin Lewis (21) had a 89-run stand for the third wicket but once that partnership was snapped, the West Indians threw in the towel and they were happy to bat out their innings. When Hope was out in the 26th over, the asking rate had gone above 12 an over and West Indies had already given up by then though they had six wickets in hand.Captain Jason Holder (29) tried to get the big shots without any success as Kuldeep and Ravichandran Ashwin (1/47) gave him very few of them. When Holder was out in the 37th over, West Indies needed 136 runs from 11 overs.This was India’s biggest win against the West Indies in the Caribbeans in terms of runs.Earlier, Rahane smashed his third ODI hundred as India produced a dominating batting display to pile on 310 for 5.Put into bat, India dashed West Indies hopes of any early breakthrough on a damp pitch as they negotiated the initial overs without losing any wicket before launching on the erratic home side bowlers to post a big total after the match was reduced to 43-over a side due to rain.Rahane and his opener partner Dhawan (63) laid a strong foundation with a 114-run stand and despite a bit of a wobble in the middle overs, India went past 300 with Kohli stamping his class with a 66-ball 87 later in the innings. After today’s total, India became the side who have hit maximum number of 300-plus scores in an innings, as they reached the mark for the 96th time, overtaking Australia who had made over 300 runs 95 times.Rahane, who also had hit 62 in the abandoned first match, had 10 fours and two sixes in his 104-ball knock before he was out in the 34th over. He also shared 97 runs for the second wicket with Kohli, who hit four boundaries and four sixes in his aggressive innings.Kohli was out at the fag end of the innings after playing some exquisite strokes to the delight of the crowd at the Queen’s Park Oval. Senior batsman Yuvraj Singh, however, continued with his struggle as he fell for just 14 from 10 balls while Hardik Pandya was the other Indian to fall cheaply for just 4.The West Indies bowlers lacked discipline and bowled too many loose and short deliveries. The Indian batsmen were never troubled in any way during their innings. Rahane grabbed the chance to open the innings in the absence of Rohit Sharma for this limited-over series as he led the Indian charge before Kohli took over later on.The match began after a delay of two hours due to rain and West Indies captain Jason Holder put India to bat after winning the toss. But, Holder’s hopes of getting an early breakthrough on a pitch which looked damp went haywire as Dhawan and Rahane giving scant respect of the home bowlers just like they did in the abandoned first match at the same venue.Dhawan, who continued with his red-hot form from the Champions Trophy itself, and Rahane stitched 114 runs from 18.2 runs to set the match nicely for India. The duo raced to the 50-run mark in the eighth over with the help of seven fours and a six. Rahane hit pacer Alzarri Joseph for a huge six in the third over before Dhawan sent Holder for two boundaries in the next over.Holder himself and his new ball partner Joseph struggled to get the right line and the West Indies captain was again punished by Dhawan for three boundaries in the eighth over as India reached to the 50-run mark. Dhawan gave the same treatment to Joseph the same treatment as he hit three boundaries in the 12th over and then raised his 21st ODI fifty two overs later. Dhawan had hit a 92-ball 87 in the abandoned first match. Dhawan, however, could not capitalise on his fine touch for a three-figure score as he got out in the 19th over. He was beaten completely by a flighted delivery of off-spinner Ashley Nurse and wicketkeeper Shai Hope effected an easy stumping.Dhawan had 10 fours from 59 deleiveries in his innings.
