India lose to defending champs China; still in the hunt for QF berth

FIBA Asia U18 Day 2- India lose to defending champs China; still in the hunt for QF berth
New Delhi/Bengaluru, 23rd July, 2016: Coming off a promising opening win against Thailand yesterday at the 24th FIBA U18 Men’s Championship 2016 underway in Iran, the Indian U18 Men’s Team faced a surging China on Day 2. The defending champions China were still riding high on their own Day 1 victory over Iraq, where they had managed to separate themselves by 65 points.
As the game got underway, India held its own in the first quarter, taking a 3-point lead. It hit 3 of their 11 3-pointers in this period alone, compared to China’s solitary shot from downtown. India was also neck and neck with China when it came to points in the paint, with both sides scoring 12 points each.
China used the second quarter of the game to really separate itself, outscoring India by 20 points. The Indian lads put up a fight in the 3rd quarter and managed a smaller deficit, but it was not enough as the side eventually fell short, 66 to a 106.
Tamil Nadu shooting guards Hariram Ragupathy and captain P Baladhaneshwar were the bright spots in today’s competition. They scored 31 and 25 points respectively and had 3 assists a piece. They, along with centre Vishal Kumar Gupta played the entire 40 minutes of the match. Additionally, Hariram finished the game hitting 6 out of 15 3-pointers, managing 40% accuracy.
India shot better from the 3-point line, shooting almost 30% to China’s 25%. The damage though, was done on the inside. China ended the contest with 20 more rebounds (38-18) and with 76 points in the paint.
The game will likely serve as a learning experience for a young squad that is on the rise in Asia. With a 1-1 record, India is still in the running for a quarterfinal spot despite this small setback.
The side will take on Chinese Taipei tomorrow (24th July) at 5:00 pm IST.
China (J Taruike 20 pts 4 rbs, J Man 18, Z Fan 13 pts 9 rbs) bt India (Hariram Ragupathy 31 pts 8 rbs, P Baladhaneshwar 25 pts) 106-66 [27-21, 30-10, 26-18, 33-17]

Naresh -Welcome Tim Kaine to the team

Welcome Tim Kaine to the team
Naresh —
I wanted to take a moment to tell you why I’m so proud that Hillary has chosen Senator Tim Kaine to join her on the Democratic ticket this fall.
Nothing can really prepare you for this job. You come to learn that it’s about having a firm grasp of the issues, sound judgment, and the tenacity never to stop fighting to make people’s lives better.
The thing about Hillary is, she already understands all that. She does her homework, she masters the issues, and she never gives up. She gets the job done. And more than almost anyone I’ve worked with in Washington, Hillary’s the kind of person who sees a problem and says, “How can I fix this? What can I do to help?”
But this job is also about surrounding yourself with the best possible people. And there’s no more important decision you’ll make as a presidential candidate than choosing a vice president. There are basically two paths you can take. You can pick someone for purely political reasons — or you can pick someone who will be your partner in government. Someone who shares your values. Someone who will make you a better president.
That’s why I picked Joe Biden — and it’s a testament to Hillary’s character and integrity that she chose a man like Tim Kaine.
Like Hillary, Tim is an optimist. But like Hillary, he is also a progressive fighter. He’s the son of a teacher and an iron worker who’s always got working families on his mind. For nearly two decades, he specialized in representing people who had been denied fair access to housing just because of what they looked like, or because they had a disability. And when a gunman killed 32 people on the campus of Virginia Tech, Tim knew he had a responsibility as governor to offer more than thoughts and prayers to the community he mourned with — and as a gun owner, he stood up to the gun lobby on their behalf.
There aren’t a lot of elected officials in Washington whom people like even more when the cameras are off than when the cameras are on. But Tim is that kind of guy. He’s a man who’s risen to the highest levels of government but still lives in the same neighborhood he did as a city councilmember in Richmond. You just can’t find anyone with a bad thing to say about him, from the staff who’ve worked for him to the Republicans who’ve served alongside him.
Simply put: Tim is a good man. He’s a true progressive. And he will make a great vice president.
I could not be prouder to support our Democratic ticket — please join me in welcoming Tim Kaine to this team:

Thanks for everything you’ve done and will do to elect Hillary and Tim.

Thanks, Naresh. This is an awesome moment, and I’m thrilled we’re all a part of it. Talk soon!
