Manu Ginobili scores 38 as San Antonio stops Cavaliers win streak

compiled from staff and wire reports

The San Antonio Spurs are not having the kind of season that they’re accustomed to, 53 or more wins. At least that has been the case since they drafted Tim Duncan back in 1977.  This season, the Spurs are (43-28) with 11 games left and 53 wins will only be possible if they go 10-1. That’ll be hard to accomplish with point guard Tony Parker out with an injury. Currently, San Antonio is seventh in the Western Conference, a half-game ahead of Portland.

Since Tony Parker went out of the lineup with an injury, the Spurs are 7-4 and leading the way has been Manu Ginobili who is averaging 23.8 points per game.

Friday night against the NBA’s best team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Ginobili scored 15 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, as the Spurs won 102-97, ending the Cavs latest win streak of eight games. The Cavs win streak actually started earlier this month with a win over the Spurs in Cleveland.

It was Ginobili’s third 30-point game since he was forced into the starting lineup when Tony Parker broke his hand on March 6.

LeBron James scored 27 points for Cleveland, but he and his Cavalier teammates watched their second-longest winning streak go by the wayside with six scoreless possessions down the stretch.

The Cavaliers had another negative from the game as center Anderson Varejao left the game in the first half with a sore hamstring and did not return.

Massillon Jackson is Too Tall for Gahanna

Gahanna Lincoln’s boys basketball team had no answer for Massillon Jackson’s big men, and fell to the Polar Bears 62-50 in the State Tournament Division I semi-final.  The Lions of Gahanna Lincoln were 26-0 entering the game–one of only two undefeated teams still remaining, with Division II Port Clinton being the other.

Jackson’s Josh Egner and Mark Henniger–6’6″ and 6’7″, respectively–combined for 34 points and 20 rebounds against a Lions starting five that ranged from 5’10″ to 6’4″.  Egner made his presence known in the first quarter, blocking three shots, then became a dunking machine in the third quarter, scoring 11 of his 23 points.

Jackson led 18-9 at the end of the first quarter, but the Lions’ defense forced seven turnovers in the second quarter and trailed only 26-24 at halftime — thanks to 10 second-quarter points by the other “Jackson” in this game, the Lions’ Anthony Jackson.  The Polar Bears had only one field goal in the second quarter, but exploded for five baskets in the first four minutes of the third quarter behind Egner.   They led by as many as 14 midway through the fourth quarter, and cruised to Saturday’s championship match-up with Cincinnati Moeller.

Actually, “cruised” isn’t a fair description, as the Lions forced 23 Polar Bears turnovers in the game.  Anthony Jackson kept the game from being a rout by hitting on five of eight three-pointers, and matched Egner’s 23 points.

The Polar Bears shot 67% from the floor in the second half, and 58% for the game.  The Lions connected on only 32% of their shots, with several rattling out.

Michael Shull added 14 points, and Brad DuPont added 12, along with seven assists, for the winners, who finished with a 37-26 advantage on the boards.

compiled by staff

Robert Culp, who played former tennis star-turned-secret agent Kelly Robinson while teamming with Bill Cosby as Alexander Scott in the TV series “I Spy” and was Bob in the sex comedy “Bob, Carol, Ted & Alice, died earlier this week after collapsing outside his Hollywood home, he was 79.

Culp’s manager Hilliard Elkins said the actor was on a walk when he fell. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead just before noon Pacific Time.

“I Spy”  greatly advanced the careers of Robert Culp and Bill Cosby. They became famous and household names in Hollywood and became lifelong friends. Bill Cosby has said over the years during interviews that Culp was like an older brother to him. “As an actor, he always was there to teach me and protect me,” Cosby said.

‘I Spy” aired from 1965 to 1968 and was a television groundbreaking show with its combination of humor and adventure which broke new barriers.  It was the first integrated show to feature a black actor in a starring role.

As mentioned before, Robert Culp played Kelly Robinson, a spy whose cover was as a touring tennis player. Unknown to most people, in real life Culp actually was a top-notch tennis player who showed his skills in numerous celebrity tournaments. Cosby was his co-hort and fellow spy Alexander Scott, whose character cover was as Culp’s trainer. The duo traveled the world in the secret service of the United States government.

Eventhough Culp was the more polished actor, it was Cosby who won Emmy’s for the leading role actor all three years that “I Spy” aired.

After years of discussion and planning, Culp and Cosby teammed up in 1994 for a two-hour CBS movie, “I Spy Returns.”

Robert Martin Culp was born in 1930 in Oakland, California and is survived by his wife, Candace Culp and five children.
