I just wanted to win today,” he said after the Fuel Masters’ 74-72 win. “It was a big game, really important for both teams We were down all game but they let the door open. We’re just lucky to capitalize on some mistakes.”The Fil-Canadian dead shot, who had 16 points, five rebounds and three steals, said he already knew the kind of defense TNT was going to throw at him in Phoenix’s last offensive possession and he read it perfectly resulting to Kramer’s short baseline hook that won the game.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“I knew that they’re gonna double.

It just happened very instinctively.” Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases View comments Phoenix won despite playing catchup majority of the game and trailing by as much as 13.“We’re a veteran team. We have some young guys, like myself, Jason (Perkins). But we got some very savvy vets who know how to win: RJ (Jazul), JC (Intal), Willie (Wilson), Doug, Jeff (Chan). They know how to win games, they know how to close out games. So I feel like we have a good batch of guys to go far this year.”Wright likes his team’s chances heading into its last three games in the elimination round.“This is the PBA, man. Anything can happen, so we’re not taking any of those teams lightly. We are confident in our abilities, and we’re expecting to go 4-and-0 in our last four games. We took care of today, so we just gotta take care of the next three.”ADVERTISEMENT Matthew Wright.

Nuquay for Boakai: The VP Names His Future VP

first_imgVP Boakai and his running mate, House Speaker Nuquay-UP’s Boakai Names Speaker Nuquay as Vice Standard BearerIt wasn’t much of a surprise, as the prospect of Speaker J. Emmanuel Nuquay, being named running mate to Unity Party (UP) standard Bearer Joseph N. Boakai, had floated the airwaves among the names of other members of the House of Representatives for nearly a week. And though they tried to keep suspense alive up to the moment of the announcement at the UP headquarters yesterday evening, everyone knew it would have seemed rather off, if Mr. Boakai were to passe over the Speaker of the House of Representatives for an underling representative as running mate.That would have been Boakai’s sole prerogative and no one would change it but him.However, VP Boakai’s introduction of Nuquay as his running mate seemed to be driving home the message, first of all, that the VP knows VP potential when he sees it.  That Nuquay, currently the Speaker, would be the one to succeed Boakai as Vice President and President of the Senate, is a solid endorsement of Nuquay’s ability to navigate the Capitol terrain, where he would sit — if they win the October polls — as president of the Senate.  And by this, in the same stroke VP Boakai also showed that he observed and respected the constitutional line of succession as stated in Article 64 of the Constitution — that the Speaker should be next in succession after the Vice President.If the Boakai-Nuquay ticket wins, the  Speaker will also be first person to have headed both the Lower House and the Upper House — as President of the Liberian Senate.The all-legislative ticket of the UP was once predicted by former Speaker Edwin Snowe that the President and probably — the Vice President — would be “technically” members of the Legislature.Snowe’s prediction was  publicized when he expressed his intend to join the ruling Unity Party – after winning his second term as an independent candidate in the Montserrado County District #6.The UP’s Vice Standard Bearer, Speaker Nuquay, is 48 years of age.  Arguably the little known, J. Emmanuel Nuquay surfaced in Liberian politics when he won Margibi County District # 5 Representative, on the ticket of the UP.From 2006 to 2007, the Speaker served as Co-chairman on the House’s Committee on Ways, Means, Finance and Development Planning, and from May 2007 up to 2014, he served as Chairman on the House’s Committee on Ways, Means, Finance and Development Planning.The Speaker lost the Ways, Means, Finance and Development Planning position when internal political wrangling engulfed the House of Representatives. A year later, he resigned from the UP and co-founded the People’s Unification Party (PUP). There is no record to suggest that he re-joined the UP to name Vice Standard Bearer of the UP.After about two years of internal wrangling, the then Speaker J. Alex Tyler was dethroned overwhelmingly and Nuquay elected Speaker on white ballot — a first in recent years — on October 5, 2016.According to political pundits, Speaker Nuquay is the first Speaker from Margibi County and would be the first Vice President from Margibi County.Meanwhile, it means the Speaker wouldn’t run as a Representative again, leaving his District to be contested by newcomers after serving 12 years as a Legislator.His tenure as Speaker will end on Janaury 16, 2018.The exclusion of the Speaker from contesting as Representative has summed the number of Representatives who would not be contesting in the October 10 Legislative elections to eight; and means the race of who to replace Speaker Nuquay will be tough and stiff.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
