Liguanea Lodge Charity Golf tees off tomorrow
Dawn Hyde, the second female champion of the coveted Liguanea Lodge 'Red Blazer' Charity Golf Championship, is set to defend her title at this year's renewal tomorrow at the Constant Spring Golf Club.
Set to tee off at 7:30 a.m., the tournament is expected to attract a wide cross section of golfers. The tournament has a Stableford format with flights and sections for seniors, juniors and ladies. With more than 20 prizes to be won, the Liguanea Lodge 'Red Blazer' which has been staged for more than 15 years, is still one of the most coveted championships around and participants have always looked forward to it. This year's tournament is expected to be no less exciting, and should see some of the best local amateurs in action.
Allen Iverson retires
Allen Iverson's highlights played one more time on the big screen, diehard Philadelphia 76ers fans and Julius Erving all part of the crowd catching one more glimpse of No. 3 in his prime.
His killer crossover in his rookie season that dusted Michael Jordan.
The jumper he buried over Tyronn Lue, then highstepped over the fallen Lakers defender in Game 1 of the 2001 NBA Finals.
He did it in typical A.I. flair, eschewing a suit fit for a black leather hoodie, askew black cap and a gold chain around his neck.
Iverson retired Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center, the site of so many of the moments he crafted into a Hall of Fame worthy career. Iverson led the Sixers to the 2001 NBA finals, won four scoring titles, clashed with former coach Larry Brown, and was an All-Star game fixture.
Sixers cool Heat
Spencer Hawes scored 24 points and hit the winning basket to lead the Philadelphia 76ers past the Miami Heat 114-110 Wednesday night.
Michael Carter-Williams had 22 points, 12 assists and set an NBA first-game record with nine steals for the Sixers. Evan Turner scored 26. LeBron James had 25 points and 13 assists and Chris Bosh scored 22 for Miami.
