What a difference the 3-point shot has made in basketball. This, coupled with the North Carolina State NCAA Championship Game when they fouled the opposition and made up a huge margin to win the game at the buzzer, has led to a total change in how you play the 4th quarter or second half of a ball game. Before the 3-point shot, most coaches knew by the 4-minute mark to the end of the game how many points they needed to secure the win. If you could get as much as a 6-point lead, you could slow the game down enough to make this hold up. Today teams will not allow you to do that. They will foul you and force you to give up the basketball and then will bomb threes on their end of the floor. Most of you probably can’t remember a game in which a team may be forced to make 15-20 free throws in the last 4 minutes of a game to hold a lead. This basically means that no lead is ever truly safe in basketball. Before the North Carolina State incident, no one thought of fouling that much to get back into the game. How many remember South Dearborn making up a 30-point deficit on East Central a few years back? I do not have any statistics to back this up, but I would be willing to bet that 90% of the time this doesn’t work. All it does is add 15-20 minutes to the 4th quarter, upset the referees, and drive the fans batty. Most of the time an 8-10 point deficit becomes a 20-point deficit before it is over but there is always that 10% that keeps coaches trying.
Former Ghana FA chief Dr Nyaho Tamakloe doubts Michael Essien’s Ghana commitment as the Chelsea ace continues to delay his return to the Black Stars.Essien, who enjoyed a successful season-long loan deal at Real Madrid, has been diplomatic about when he will rejoin his international teammates.There were high expectations he was going to confirm his return after last Saturday’s charity match organized by his foundation in Accra but he disappointed.His last appearance for the senior national team dates back to 2011 when he played in a 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Congo in Kumasi.Tamakloe, renowned for his abrasive administrative style as chairman of Hearts of Oak in the late 1980s, believes is not loyal to the Black Stars.“There are players who are not committed to the national team and Essien is one classic example of such players,” Dr. Tamakloe told the state-owned Graphic Sports. “I see Essien’s problem as a psychological complex that makes him feel comfortable when he plays among whites, but operates with suspicion when he is among blacks, and that explains why he performs very well in Europe than in Africa, even though there were times that he had played well for the Blacks Stars, but generally he has never shown the will to die for the country.”“Essien decided to quit the Black Stars and has sat back to see the team make progress and wants to join when it appears some progress has been made in terms of qualification for the World Cup.”
