5 shots per game. He leads a fantastic Knights defense that ranks 18th in adjusted defensive efficiency, per KenPom.com , and allows just 61.0 points per game, which ranks fourth in Division I. TCU looked like it was on track for an NCAA tournament bid in early February, as the Horned Frogs were 6-5 in the tough Big 12. However, they proceeded to lose their next seven games, six of which were against conference teams that eventually made the NCAA tournament. The Horned Frogs did beat future NCAA tournament No. 1 seed Kansas close to the Jayhawks' home, however, winning 85-82 in Kansas City's Sprint Center (albeit without KU freshman star Josh Jackson, who was suspended) behind 18 points, eight rebounds, five assists and four steals from junior guard and triple-double threat Kenrich Williams. TCU is stout on offense and defense, ranking 38th and 58th in adjusted offensive efficiency and adjusted defensive efficiency, per KenPom.

That resonates with even greater truth the older you get. You have to work hard to get fit and then to stay fit as you age. That said, working hard doesnt mean to say it’s not fun. That's the real key to it. What you see from the swims I'm doing is that they are exciting and fun, albeit tough. My best advice is to choose things you enjoy, but also challenge yourself with things you've never done before. Why? One, because if you’re not very good at it, you have to work a lot harder and you get greater gains. Two, doing something new, learning a new skill, is so exciting that it brings enjoyment into what is quite a tough environment. Swimming is a great example of that.

The day before his team fell to South Carolina in the round of 32, Mike Krzyzewski, Dukes Hall of Fame coach, called Thornwell the best, unheralded great player in the United States." One night later, Thornwell dropped 24 points on the Blue Devils, upping his postseason scoring average to 26.2 pointsand elevating the buzz about his potential at the next level. Draftexpress.com predicts Thornwell wont be selected in this summers NBA draft. But at least one Western Conference scout believes he has better than a 50 percent chance of being chosen in the second round. He reminds me a lot of Tyreke Evans, says the scout, who was on hand for Thornwells 44-point effort against Alabama on February 7. Hes just a tough guy that bulls his way to the basket and gets to the free throw line.

E merging photographers are just as vital for grantors as grants are for emerging photographers. Photography institutions and established names are dependent on this black mass of upcoming talent, she says. After all, these are the men and women who invest alternative resources into keeping the relatively small eco-system of the photo-universe afloat. For many grantees, the fund is a lifeline for their work. Daniel Castro Garcia, whose work documenting migrants in Italy has won him critical acclaim, says: It's really tough to survive in the photography world when you're starting out. Even when things go well for you, it doesn't correlate to financial reward and this work really is a labour of love. The grant means Garcia will be able to continue his Foreigner: I Peri N'Tera project, where he will return to Sicily to work closely with a group of unaccompanied minors living at a small reception center near Catania.

Australia were denied victory by Ahmed Yasin’s late equaliser, which rewarded a determined second-half showing by Iraq 2.08pm GMT Final thought: A match that seemed eminently winnable for Australia eventually turned into a save, as Iraq stormed home in the second half to leave honours even. The fixture had all the hallmarks of the type of tough, Asian scrap we’ve come to expect, but none of that should serve as an excuse. While Australia displayed a little more quality and sophistication in attack, they were matched by the industry and fight of Iraq, who were particularly well served by their striker Abdulraheem. He looked dangerous all game and unlucky not to come away with a goal. 1.51pm GMT After a little bit of confusion, the referee blows full time and brings down the curtain on a rough and tumble World Cup Qualifier in Tehran. Some thoughts to follow. Continue reading...

Cherry Picking Talks It's really tough to report on all of these talks. Some people came with prepared talks including slides and props. Many came with talk topic and structure in mind and gave their talk adapted to some of the others they had heard that day. Even those who didn't plan to speak were easily cajoled into giving us two minutes on what projects they're exploring these days. Many of our readers who couldn't be there asked us to record it, but we didn't want the presence of cameras to dampen anyone's spontaneity, so we left them off.

Wenger's early teams were tough and hard to beat; now they are flaky and fall over. What we are seeing this season is more than an annual fade – if he's not lost the dressing room, it looks like certain corners of it are not responding to him. Like Ranieri, he looks a victim of player power. Another problem for this Strasbourg University Economics graduate is that he cannot bring himself to pay the big bucks that are essential if trophies are to be won. Once ahead of his time in training and preparation, he is now an old penny-pinching fuddy-duddy. He has also admitted – and this is strange from such an erudite man – that he has, unlike Fergie, few interests outside of football. He says he hardly knows his way around London – only the ground, the training ground and home where he might be found at 3am glued to a video of a game in the Burkina Faso second division.

At present, we know little of where the follow-up to The Force Awakens will go, other than it stars much of the previous film's cast, including Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Mark Hamill, while various interviews with those returning actors have hinted at a darker direction for the story. In many respects, Johnson has a tough task ahead of him with Episode VIII ; The Force Awakens relied heavily on resurrecting the icons from the original trilogy - Han Solo, the Millennium Falcon and so on - but its sequel arguably needs to move things forward if this new series of movies is going to develop its own distinctive voice. Here's hoping that Johnson's indie sensibility - see Brick , The Brothers Bloom , Looper - will add a touch of the unexpected to this firmly re-established space opera. 5.

Courtesy of THR , here is some info about those characters... "Sink will play Max, a tough and confident girl whose appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era. She has a complicated history and is generally suspicious of those around her. "Montgomery will play Billy, Max's hyper-confident and edgy older step-brother. He steals girlfriends away from their boyfriends, is great at drinking games and drives a black Camaro. But lurking under his apparent charisma is a violent and unpredictable nature." We've also heard that Steve Harrington's Joe Keery and Noah Schnapp's Will Byers will have larger roles in the show's second season. Both actors have been bumped up from 'recurring cast members' to 'series regulars.' Entertainment Weekly reported that Paul Reiser's role in the series will riff on his memorable turn as Burke in the classic James Cameron sci-fi film Aliens .
