It includes the construction of a regasification facility and eight 225,000-cbm LNG storage tanks. The refinery and the LNG import terminal are located some 90 kilometers south of the capital Kuwait City. Kuwait Petroleum’s unit KIPIC said two sub-contractors died in an accident on Saturday at its LNG plant under construction in Al-Zour. A South Korean consortium consisting of Hyundai E&C, Hyundai Engineering and Kogas is in charge of building the LNG terminal.last_img read more

No. 2 seed Syracuse falters in 2nd half to No. 1 North Carolina in ACC title game

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ RICHMOND, Va. — As North Carolina players mingled around midfield, celebrating their second consecutive conference title, Gary Gait sat alone on the Syracuse bench. He clenched in his right hand a rolled-up statistics sheet, which UNC senior attack Molly Hendrick stuffed to the tune of seven goals and two assists, watching the Tar Heels giggle, pose for photographs and put on their championship hats and T-shirts.Over the previous 40 minutes, the Tar Heels dug out of a 5-0 Syracuse run to hang nine unanswered goals and hold SU to not a single score over the last 18:38 of game time. That stretch, which lifted No. 1 seed UNC to an 18-11 victory Sunday afternoon over No. 2 SU in the ACC title game, was punctuated by Hendrick’s somersault on her seventh goal of the day. It took the life from Syracuse, as the Tar Heels mobbed their leader who put to rest SU’s attempt at a second-half comeback.Top-seeded North Carolina (16-2, 6-1 Atlantic Coast) used that second-half run to glide past No. 2 seed Syracuse (15-6, 5-2) at Sports Backers Stadium near the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University. The Orange jetted out to an early lead, 4-0, only to go down one at the half. UNC commanded the draw control game 22 to nine, giving its eighth-ranked offense time to hang 18 goals — including six in a three-minute, 19-second spurt — on SU and claim its second consecutive ACC title.The Tar Heels scored 35 goals in the first two games of the tournament, and that same offense found holes in SU’s defense to coast by in the final minutes.“We played so much defense in the second half,” Gait said. “It was unbelievable. You just get tired. On the draw, we weren’t running with them, we weren’t staying in the middle competing for ground balls. You’re going to be a step behind when you play almost a full half of defense.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textCody Hendrix | Staff PhotographerFourteen days ago in Chapel Hill, SU went up 4-0 early and handed UNC its only loss in its past 17 regular-season ACC contests. Freshman attack Emily Hawryschuk scored four times to lead SU past the Tar Heels, the team’s only loss since Feb. 25.On Friday, junior attack Riley Donahue tied a career-high four goals to lead SU past Virginia in the semifinal. It set up Sunday’s showdown on a neutral site to decide the ACC’s automatic invite to the NCAA tournament, in what had shaped up to be a thriller: UNC won last year in overtime and Syracuse won in overtime in 2015.The third consecutive ACC final meeting was far from that. UNC took 18 shots and won nine draw controls in the first half alone. The nation’s second-best team in draw controls (16.56 per game), North Carolina, used possession time to fuel its 7-2 run to end the half after SU went up 4-0.“We got the unlucky end of the stick a couple of times,” said SU senior attack Devon Parker, who had two goals and two assists. “That gave them momentum going forward.”The key UNC adjustment came at the break. North Carolina had open cutters in the first half, though the timing of their cuts was off. Once Tar Heels head coach Jenny Levy told her players to either cut earlier to the middle or flash later to the elbows, they penetrated the SU defense. Suddenly, the whole zone opened.North Carolina spaced more. Players drew out from behind the goal because SU freshman goalie Asa Goldstock jumped out of the cage several times in the first half to fend off UNC shots near the crease. When the Tar Heels drew out from behind the net and timed its cuts better, a series of unassisted goals ensued.Levy, who called the first half “a struggle all of the way through,” made the proper switches that freed up the once clogged up middle of the offensive zone.“The adjustments we made were really effective and freed our kids up,” Levy said. “It was just a matter of time for them to get in sync with one another, which gave us the momentum to break open the game … We kept in the back of our mind: one-goal game, one-goal game. The energy never wavered.”Cody Hendrix | Staff PhotographerBy halftime, Hendrick had four goals. She did not relent after the break. She maneuvered her way into traffic near the cage to lead a Tar Heels barrage that answered a 5-0 Orange run early in the second.Barely two minutes had elapsed into the second frame before UNC senior attack Carly Reed glided around the cage, paused and scored. Back-to-back Reed goals opened the second half, putting SU down three.Syracuse erased deficits in both the ACC quarterfinal against Virginia Tech and in the semifinal against Virginia to get to Sunday. It believed it could do it again. Early in the second, attacks Donahue and Parker chipped in to make it a game again. When SU took a two-goal lead early in the second half, a contingent of Orange fans stood to their feet and SU players danced on the sidelines.That was all Syracuse had left.“It was a game of runs,” Gait said. “We just didn’t have an answer for the last one.” Comments Published on April 30, 2017 at 3:46 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21last_img read more

Final Four 2019 picks: Why Michigan State, Virginia are safe bets against the spread

first_imgSometimes experience matters the most when it comes down to it, and Michigan State coach Tom Izzo brings much more of that than anyone else in the Final Four. Even though the Red Raiders possess the most efficient defense in the country, the Spartans are also stout defensively and have been the much better team on the offensive end. When it’s all said and done, Winston should push the Spartans to the championship game and help them cover, although this game should still be a thrilling one. (Spreads via VegasInsider) MORE: Which Final Four school should you root for?Each of the four teams are deserving in their own right, but you know how it goes: only two will prevail come Saturday. If the games are anything like the Elite Eight contests, we should be in for a treat.The constant unpredictability of basketball make for a difficult task to pick games against the spread, but why not give it the old college try?Virginia (-5) vs. AuburnPrediction: Virginia will coverI picked against Auburn in the Sweet 16, and whiffed on that badly. But that’s not going to stop me here. The Tigers’ run has been impressive, without a doubt. They are the first team to beat Kansas, North Carolina and Kentucky in consecutive games in the same NCAA Tournament. But this seems like the place where their luck runs out. Yes, they were able to beat the Wildcats despite Chuma Okeke’s ACL injury and a poor team shooting effort. It simply comes down to Virginia being a better team. The Cavaliers barely escaped Purdue, but still played their signature strong defense in spite of Carsen Edwards’ 42-point effort, which was more of a testament to Edwards’ superhuman shooting ability rather than Virginia’s inability to guard him.MORE: Virginia vs. Auburn by the numbersKyle Guy seems back on track after a tough start to the tournament. Ty Jerome looks like his usually steady self at point guard. Future lottery pick De’Andre Hunter is bound to heat up after scoring only 31 points in his last three games. And in maybe the biggest revelation of all, Mamadi Diakite is starting to become the big man that Virginia badly needs. Auburn has been great the entire month of March, but their inconsistency and the loss of Okeke is concerning. Virginia is just too good. It covers and plays for a national championship. The Tigers have already overcome the odds three times in tournament though, so would it really be surprising if they pull off another win?Michigan State (-2.5) vs. Texas TechPrediction: Michigan State will coverOne might think that because Michigan State beat Duke, it can beat anyone, and one might not be wrong about that. After seeming like an improbability for the Final Four due to the roadblock presented by the Blue Devils, the Spartans may now be the favorite in Minneapolis.Although Texas Tech’s Jarrett Culver is the best NBA Draft prospect in the Final Four, Spartans point guard Cassius Winston may be the better overall collegiate player. He has constantly willed Michigan State to win after win, and starters Xavier Tillman and Aaron Henry rounding into form has proven crucial.MORE: Michigan State vs. Texas Tech by the numbersAll things considered, the Spartans’ starting lineup has the slight edge on the Red Raiders.  Let’s face it: Your bracket is busted.Of all the possible Final Four combinations, Virginia, Auburn, Michigan State and Texas Tech wasn’t exactly a popular one. The whole bracket aspect of March Madness is essentially wiped out for 2019, and the hope is just for an entertaining final three games. last_img read more
