La Salle s eye in coaching change turns to NBA G-League

De La Salle University will be handled by a foreign head coach for next year's UAAP 82 Men's Basketball Tournament – just not by the name initially reported. Rather than British Tim Lewis, several sources said on Friday that now, the Green Archers are focused on bringing in American Jermaine Byrd as their new mentor. The development was first reported by Matthew Li of Tiebreaker Times. Late last night, it was reported that Lewis, formerly of the Qatar national team, was poised to take over from Louie Gonzalez. Just hours later, however, sources clarified that nothing was set in stone. “’Di pa final yan,” a source was quoted in saying. Not long after, it was revealed that the Taft-based team has decided to go with Byrd who gets the job instead of Lewis, Topex Robinson, and Jimmy Alapag – all of whom declined due to prior commitments. Byrd’s most extensive coaching experience comes from the NBA G-League where he served as assistant coach for the Tulsa 66ers, Sioux Falls Skyforce, and LA Defenders. After that, he had stints in the Korean Basketball League with the Samsung Thunders and Goyang Orions. Now in La Salle, he will have Mythical selection Justine Baltazar, team captain Andrei Caracut, and scoring dynamo Aljun Melecio leading the charge. Byrd is the second new head coach for the Green Archers since Aldin Ayo moved on in 2017. He replaces Gonzalez who goes one-and-done as head coach after going 8-6 and missing out on the Final Four. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Can a holographic screen help a new phone break out?

NEW YORK --- Most leading phones offer the same basics: Big screens, decent battery life and good cameras. So when a newcomer brings something innovative to the party, why is it difficult to break through a phone market dominated by Apple and Samsung? One such smartphone comes out this week from Red, a company with roots in digital cameras for movie productions. The new Hydrogen One has a holographic screen that produces 3-D visuals without needing special glasses. It is launching with two major movies converted to this format and allows users to create and share their own videos shot with the phone. Red's goals are modest --- about 16 million units a year, based on Red's state...Keep on reading: Can a holographic screen help a new phone break out?.....»»
