Late game blunder puts damper on Thirdy Ravena’s stellar shooting night

first_imgView comments With Ateneo leading Adamson 75-68 with less than half a minute left, Ravena made the mistake of putting some help defense on Lenda Douanga on the baseline and thus leaving Jerrick Ahanmisi wide open for the late three that cut the Blue Eagles’ lead to four, 75-71, with around 21 seconds left.For some, defending a person underneath is the more sensible option but what Ravena did was directly against what Baldwin instructed the Blue Eagles.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGreatest ever?SPORTSFormer PBA import Anthony Grundy passes away at 40SPORTSBecoming his own man“Ahanmisi’s play at the end was, honestly, what kept them alive in the game,” said Ravena in Filipino after Ateneo’s 80-74 win over the Soaring Falcons Wednesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.“Coach Tab actually communicated that to us, the exact same play, yet I didn’t follow it because I thought he [Simon Camacho] was going to pass it to Douanga in the baseline so I helped and left Jerrick open.” MOST READ Becoming his own man Ravena finished the game with 23 points, his highest this season, four rebounds, and five assists but that defensive breakdown in the final moments earned him bench time.Just a few seconds after Ahanmisi’s field goal, Ravena was subbed out for Mike Nieto and he received some verbal lashing from Baldwin.“The game should’ve been over, but he made the shot and that gave them a chance to take the win,” said Ravena. “Personally this is a terrible feeling because I let my team down.”“I let my team down, I didn’t listen to coach and it’s my fault. It’s something to improve on.”ADVERTISEMENT MANILA, Philippines—Thirdy Ravena had his best offensive game of the UAAP Season 82 men’s basketball tournament but a late-game blunder completely erased what he had done in the eyes of head coach Tab Baldwin.ADVERTISEMENT Controversy-hit Rockets beat Raptors in Japan NBA preseason game Canadian vaping study details danger from ‘popcorn lung’ chemical Drilon apologizes to BCDA’s Dizon over false claim on designer of P50-M ‘kaldero’ LATEST STORIEScenter_img Matteo Guidicelli had saved up for Sarah G’s ring since 2014?

Shanghai China – Reported by Erin Riley for Elite

first_imgShanghai, China – Reported by Erin Riley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineThis fall, luxury hospitality operator Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts will debut two exciting China properties, Banyan Tree Shanghai On The Bund and Banyan Tree Tianjin Riverside, as part of the hotel group’s urban resort concept that seeks to combine five-star resort-style features in city-based retreats. Following the brand’s success in premiere destinations like Bangkok, Seoul and Macau, Banyan Tree’s newest ventures capitalize on some of China’s most influential and sought-after locations to offer its elite guests the perfect complements to truly idyllic settings.Shanghai’s Bund is a waterfront boulevard famous for its architectural mishmash of buildings from the art deco period to neo-gothic and Romanesque styles, each filled with modern cultural and commercial centers that provide all the entertainment, shopping and dining options one could imagine. Situated on the banks of the magnificent Huangpu River, Banyan Tree Shanghai On The Bund blends the historic charm of its surrounding landmarks with the dynamism of the bustling Lujiazui financial district.The tailored property sets itself apart from other luxury options as the first hotel in the city to provide river views from every suite. Each of the 130 suites comes equipped with large French windows that open out onto the broad Bund thoroughfare and include a signature suite which features panoramic views and an en-suite dipping pool, as well as the Presidential Suite which will feature a private, luxuriously sized swimming pool.Dining options abound with a bevy of palatable choices that include mouthwatering Western-style seafood at Oceans, authentic Cantonese cuisine offerings at Ming Yuan, and ultra-fresh Japanese sushi and sashimi at Tai Hei. Come sunset, head to the alfresco rooftop bar, Stars, and enjoy flavor-inducing cocktail concoctions amidst breathtaking views of the glimmering Bund skyline.The group’s second anticipation is the Banyan Tree Tianjin, home to 159 sophisticated suites that offer a sanctuary for the senses with picturesque waterfront river views amidst the busy inclinations of Tianjin City. Located in the former Austrian concession district, the surrounding landscape is an icon in and of itself, as it comes clad with charming European-style villas, bridges and churches. Views of Hai River come adorned with grand French windows that open in to interiors of muted tones and refined lines, liking themselves to traditional Chinese ink paintings.In true Banyan Tree-style, both urban retreats come replete with a variety of meeting facilities, the award-winning Banyan Tree spa, top-of-the-line health and fitness club, as well as the signature Banyan Tree Gallery.www.banyantree.comlast_img read more
