first_img Romeo Langford’s late layup gives Indiana double-overtime win over No. 19 Wisconsin Duke vs. Virginia Tech: Three takeaways from the Blue Devils’ loss North Carolina pulled off a 93-85 win over Syracuse on Tuesday, extending its winning streak to four games.The Tar Heels put together some impressive runs during the game, but the Orange kept battling back to keep things competitive. Nevertheless, UNC remains one of the hottest teams in the country.Here are three takeaways from the Tar Heels’ victory: Related Newscenter_img While Syracuse did manage to topple Duke earlier this year, it gave up 90 points twice this season, and will have to face No. 2 Virginia on March 4 before the regular season comes to a close.The Orange have consistently been a dark horse come tournament time in years past. But they have a few kinks to iron out as March Madness approaches. Coby White is an elite shot creatorWhite’s versatility on offense has been a valuable asset for UNC all season. The guard became the first Tar Heel freshman to record three 30-point games in a season. He scored 34 points on 9-of-14 shooting against Syracuse and was a perfect 10-of-10 from the free throw line.The Orange’s zone defense was no match for White, who slashed to the basket for quality looks in the paint. He also rattled home six 3-pointers, proving teams trying to defend him will have to pick their poison.Getting to the line will prove to be key for the Tar HeelsUNC was remarkable when it came to getting to the free-throw line Tuesday and they also converted at an efficient clip. The Tar Heels shot 14 more free-throws than the Orange, making 34 of their 37 attempts. The Tar Heels have shot less free throws than their opponents in four of their five losses this season, so replicating Tuesday’s success could prove to be beneficial.Syracuse’s defense has been exposed against top talentThe Orange entered Tuesday with the NCAA’s 24th ranked scoring defense, allowing just 64.1 points per game. But Syracuse has given up 76.5 points per game against ranked opponents this season.last_img read more

first_imgPersonal Travel Manager wins car at National Conference TravelManagers Executive General Manager Michael Gazal thrilled to advise personal travel manager Erryn Morris that her key fits – the brand new car is hersPersonal Travel Manager wins car at National ConferenceTravelManagers’ personal travel manager Erryn Morris representative for Gooseberry Hill in Western Australia had more reason than most to say this was the best conference yet. Morris won a brand new Mazda 2 Neo along with three years AGA Roadside Assistance as part of a sales incentive with travel insurance partner, Allianz Global Assistance.“This was my fifth conference, I haven’t missed once since joining TravelManagers. I find conference always a wonderful forum to find enthusiasm, support and value for my business. To experience all that and to be going home with a brand new car is a dream come true. I know I’m not dreaming though, as I have the key that fits the car,” laughs Morris.The ten eligible personal travel managers who had the chance to win the car were Cathy Moir, Kerrin Poupos, Tanya Tyler, Ally Casey, Gayle Dawson, Alister Pardew, Lucrezia Caruso, Robbie Barrett, Linda Naake along with Erryn Morris.On the final afternoon of conference each personal travel manager was given a key, yet only one key opened the padlock on the pretend Mazda 2 Neo car.“Words cannot express the absolutely joy and excitement I felt as my key opened the padlock. Being the sixth person to attempt to open the padlock I knew I had a chance but albeit hopeful I didn’t think it could be me. I can’t wait to get home and try the key in the car door for real.”This is the first time personal travel managers have had the opportunity to win a prize of such magnitude at conference.“TravelManagers has been a partner with Allianz Global Assistance for more than three years and we had been working closely for some months to collectively develop an exclusive sales incentive. It was a really simple concept where personal travel managers who sold a minimum of ten of the company’s travel insurance products between 01 May and 31 July would be eligible for the draw,” says TravelManagers Chief Operating Officer Grant Campbell.Morris is already looking forward to next year’s conference in Darwin.“This is definitely has been the best conference yet!
