Rose signs contract extension with BYU through 2020-21

first_img Tags: Basketball/BYU Cougars Basketball/Dave Rose FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPROVO, Utah – BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe announced today that men’s basketball coach Dave Rose has signed a contract extension through the 2020-21 season.“It’s a privilege to be the head coach at BYU,” Rose said. “I’m proud of everything we have accomplished and am excited about the future. I’m grateful to the university administration and the athletic department for providing us with the resources we need to be successful. I have the opportunity to work with great coaches who are tireless workers with exceptional expertise. The very best part of my job is that I get to work with tremendous student-athletes that are fully committed to the success of our team.”“Dave has brought us a high level of competitive basketball for 13 years as the head coach at BYU,” Holmoe said. “His consistency and stability are two qualities that have been mainstays of the program. We look forward to continued success and we’re excited about this coming season.”With a record of 329-122, Rose is second all-time in program history in wins behind Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Stan Watts. Rose’s win percentage of 72.9 ranks him first all-time in BYU history and seventh among active NCAA Division I head coaches.Rose was named head coach of the Cougars in 2005 and has since led BYU to 13-straight seasons with 20-plus wins and postseason appearances – eight NCAA tournaments and five NITs. He is also a three-time conference coach of the year, two-time USBWA District Coach of the Year and has led BYU to four regular season conference titles.In his first season, Rose inherited a team that had won nine games the year before and turned it into a 20-win squad that earned an at-large bid in the NIT. Rose then led the Cougars to three-straight Mountain West Conference regular season titles, with each season finishing with an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament and at least 25 wins.Rose took the program to new heights the next two seasons. In 2009-10, BYU won 30 games and won an NCAA tournament game for the first time since 1993. The following year, Rose coached the Cougars to a program-best 32 wins and a trip to the Sweet 16 in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. BYU finished both seasons ranked in the top 25.Since 2011, Rose has accumulated seven more 20-win seasons, two appearances in the NIT semifinals in Madison Square Garden and three NCAA tournament bids.In addition to the team success, Rose-coached players have garnered numerous conference and national awards and set school and NCAA records. In 2011, Jimmer Fredette was the consensus National Player of the Year, winning several national awards including the Naismith Trophy and Wooden Award.Under Rose, six players have earned All-America honors, five players have been named conference player of the year and 13 student-athletes have received 21 first-team all-conference citations.Rose has also coached the top-two scorers in BYU history and the program’s all-time leaders in rebounds, assists, steals and 3-point field goals. In the NCAA record book, Kyle Collinsworth twice set the single-season record for triple-doubles and owns the career record.Off the court, Rose has demonstrated a commitment to the fight against cancer. Since coming to BYU, Rose, his wife Cheryl and the team have supported Mac’s Gift, which provides comfort to local families who face the challenges of raising a child who has cancer. A long-time supporter of the American Cancer Society’s nationwide Coaches vs. Cancer campaign, Rose was named a member of the National Coaches vs. Cancer Council in 2012.During the 2017-18 season, Rose won the ESPN Infiniti Coaches Charity Challenge to earn more than $100,000 for the BYU Simmons Center for Cancer Research. This fall, the Simmons Center announced that the prize-winning money has enabled them to create an endowment that will fund cancer research fellowships in perpetuity. The David and Cheryl Rose Family Student Cancer Research Endowment will provide student wages and fellowships to BYU undergraduate and graduate students conducting cancer research within the SCCR organization.

Students missing out on vital financial support

first_imgA survey conducted by Cherwell has revealed that up to eighty percent of Oxford undergraduates are not aware of the university funding available to them.One student from St Catherine’s said that the university had “not been very forthcoming” with information on funding available, while another student from Exeter described the application process for certain grants as “amazingly bureaucratic.”Sixty students from different colleges, years and economic backgrounds took part in the survey. Half of those questioned had received funding from the university, in the form of hardship or travel grants or the Oxford Opportunity Bursary.Of those who had never been given or applied for any college or university funding, around thirty percent said that this was because of lack of information. A further thirty percent claimed the application process was “confusing,” while the remainder said that they had never needed financial help.Over half of the respondents claimed to know the funding available for them at their college, but only twenty percent of those questioned could name any of the funds, or knew specifically what they were for.A student at Jesus said: “I know there is somewhere to get money from.” When shown a list of the thirteen separate grants at the college, which fund academic and non-academic travel as well as sports and music, he said he was “amazed.”“I have never seen these before,” he said.Another of the students questioned said that they had received a £500 travel grant, but was “not sure of the title” of the fund. Sixteen of those surveyed received the Oxford Opportunity Bursary, which gives students up to £3,145 pounds a year depending on their household income. Of this, only five were aware that they were entitled to apply for an ‘Enhanced Bursary’ which offers students up to an extra £1000 a year.“I wasn’t made aware,” said one Wadham undergraduate, although he admitted that missing out on the bonus may have been his own fault. “I can’t work out why [I have never heard of this]…whether it was just me being unobservant of emails in my account,” he added.The £1000 top up is sponsored by multinational companies such as Citi Foundation, IBM and Man Group.Sixty percent of all the students questioned said they had not been emailed or informed of the grants by their colleges, but had had to research them themselves.An Exeter undergraduate spoke about how he was put off applying for a travel grant which is be given to students to fund a trip round the world, meeting college alumni as they travel.“There’s a very slim chance of getting it and you have to spend literally hours writing a plan of exactly where you’re going to go,” he said. “You don’t know where these alumni live so you may find out later that your plan isn’t even possible.He added that the additional bureaucracy surrounding the application “put me off completely.”The unwillingness to fully research and prepare applications for grants was described as “lazy” by another student, who asked not to be named.“We are so privileged in Oxford with all the opportunities for travel we are given, and all these hardship grants on offer. It’s just lazy when people think they’re too complicated to find out about or apply for,” he said.Other students, though, praised the way the university advertised the funding available. “All our grants are widely publicised,” said the St John’s student.The student also admitted that she and other students received grants they did not need. “My parents own a company abroad,” she said, but explained that only their UK income was entered into consideration for the Oxford opportunity bursary. “This means that I get the get the full government loan, the full government grant and the bursary from Oxford [worth £3,145 a year].”“In lower-sixth I went to a boarding school,” she added. “There’s also a Hilary Book Grant which gives St John’s students up to £292 pounds if they present the receipts for books they’ve bought. Everybody knows about it.”She said that it was important such grants were available and widely advertised as it meant Oxford students, who are not allowed to work in term-time, could get some extra money. “We’re not allowed to work so we have to supplement [our income] somehow,” she said.Another of the respondents to the survey said they were grateful for the grants available but claimed they were badly advertised. “I know a lot of people who would not be able to travel if they couldn’t get these grants,” they said. “But they need to be openly advertised.”last_img read more

PREMIERE: Meet Thomas Wynn and The Believers [Album Stream]

first_imgMeet Thomas Wynn and The Believers, an American band with a striking new organic rock record about building a better life, a life you really believe in. Named #1 Rock Band and #1 Country/Folk Band in the city for seven consecutive years by the Orlando Weekly, Thomas Wynn and The Believers are breaking beyond the Southern rock scene with the release of their new album, Wade Waist Deep, their Mascot Label Group debut.The record is packed with the facts that make American music timeless—the deep Southern heat of the guitars, the complex, pulsing rhythms, and the male-female vocal harmonies that sound like only a brother and sister can. Breathtakingly in-sync with his vocalist sister, Olivia Wynn, Thomas Wynn sings about overcoming fear to become the person you were meant to be. Wynn, who fell in love with The Band’s first album Music from Big Pink in his early teens, brings classic country rock and soul into the new century with tunes that evoke the best of CSNY, Levon Helm, and John Prine.Growing up in Orlando, Wynn played guitar and bass in church with his brother, while Olivia sang in the choir. Family and Bible study gave rhythm to their lives. “Our parents and our church were certain,” says Olivia, who participated in the Orlando Deanery Girls Choir, where she received vocal training and sang in cathedrals. “My favorite part was watching my dad [the original drummer of the legendary 70’s country band Cowboy] listening,” remembers Olivia. “I think he was trying to pick out my voice.” So the drummer once signed to Capricorn Records (Allman Brothers Band, Marshall Tucker Band, etc), now a family man, sat quietly in church and heard in his children the new voices of Southern rock.The birth of “Wade Waist Deep” saw Thomas Wynn and The Believers traveling from Florida to Sputnik Sound studio in Nashville, where the band recorded with four-time Grammy award-winning producer, Vance Powell (The White Stripes, Jack White, Chris Stapleton). “I really wanted to do it outside of our hometown,” said Wynn. For the month of August 2016, Wynn and The Believers went on a journey to a sonic place that’s big, bright, and visionary.Moving beyond his previous, confessional songwriting, where he sought relief from heartbreak and addiction, Wynn has reached maturity on this album, which sees him pushing for higher, spiritual fulfillment. Life—and music—have changed for Wynn since he became a father to one-year-old Abel. “It’s that yearning, that longing for the person that you want to be,” says Wynn.As a child, Wynn learned from his father how to give a song the right kind of respect. Wynn remembers, at age five, his father showing him how to set up the drums “the right way,” then putting on an egg-timer and saying, “Play this beat ‘til the egg timer runs out. Don’t do any fills. No nothing. No frilly stuff. Just that beat. Learn to love that beat.”The album opens with “Man Out of Time,” a hypnotic blues that sees Wynn describe how music makes us believe: “I felt a pulse slow to the ear, but deep in body, and free from fear,” he sings with drive and conviction. His sister’s harmonies swirl in between Wynn’s transcendent guitar solos like a haunting church choir. Hitting your heart like a drum, “Heartbreak Alley” is a classic country tribute to the lover who brings a lost man back from the edge. With sparkling acoustic guitars, triumphant Hammond organ, and enormous choruses soaring above the loneliness of the past, the song strikes gold through Wynn’s startling sincerity and gratitude.The title track, “Wade Waist Deep,” dives right into an instant-classic groove, offering up casually genius guitar licks that ask us all to “slow down,” “trust the path [we’re] on,” and “set [our] spirits free.” Wynn’s message resonates strongly with the listener in anxious times like these. Calm down, go deep, have faith, and peace will come: “If you’re quiet enough, you might just hear a voice.” In the gospel-inspired “I Don’t Regret,” hope gives Wynn’s voice a striking emotional power, and he cries out at the climax as his electric guitar bleeds soul.In “My Eyes Won’t Be Open,” Wynn’s voice shakes with the intense vulnerability of the best soul singers. This genuinely moving ballad about becoming a father finds Wynn facing his fear of a leaving this world and realizing that his children will carry on the lessons he’s taught them. Wynn triumphs in asking the big questions: Who will remember us when we die? Will our troubles matter? What will we leave behind? Seeking to see life from a higher place, “Mountain Fog” moves up the mountaintop in a deep rock rhythm, carrying the listener to a moment of ecstatic, guitar-driven connection. “There’s a mountaintop high above your heart,” sings Wynn.So who, and what, are The Believers? They’re musicians united by a common belief in the power of these remarkable songs. Olivia Wynn works meticulously to make her vocal harmonies so hauntingly correct that they’re startling to hear. Colin Daniel Fei plays that vintage Hammond organ that can take you to church or send you straight to hell. Chris “Bell” Antemesaris wails wildly on blues harmonica. David Wagner and Ryan Miranda hold down the deep grooves on bass and drums, respectively. The band came together naturally. All of The Believers are regulars in the Orlando music scene who admired Wynn’s work and wanted to help him take it farther. From Antemesaris, who just kept on showing up at Wynn’s gigs and asking, “Can I sit in on a few?” to Wagner, who started out as a fan of The Believers, declaring “I want to be involved in this somehow or other,” Wynn has earned the band he has now.With two previous albums and several tours already under their belt, Thomas Wynn and The Believers have shared the stage with the likes of Cheap Trick, Gov’t Mule, Medeski, Martin & Wood, SIMO, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Drive-By Truckers, and more. Many have already taken notice of the emotional energy and power of Thomas Wynn and The Believers’ live show. “Maybe the best band we’ve ever had on that stage,” says the Albany Herald. “One of the newest, brightest, tightest, smoothest, most energetic bands to come through,” says Georgia Music Hall of Famer Alan Walden. “One of the most exciting new bands in Florida,” says WMNF 88.5 FM. “Folks stood, jaws dropped…shook their heads, and said, ‘Damn. Can’t remember the last time I was so impressed by a band I knew nothing about.’” Now Wynn and his band are excited to get out on the road for national and international tours in 2017.As for Wynn, he’s ready to convert us all to believers. But maybe not in the way you’d expect. “I don’t care how many people know my name,” he says, “as long as when they hear my music, it makes them feel something.” For Wynn, that’s the victory that’s sweeter than no other.Stream Thomas Wynn and the Believers’ Wade Waist Deep below, exclusively through L4LM:last_img read more

Blizzard Causes Cuomo to Declare State of Emergency for LI

Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency in Nassau and Suffolk Counties as a Nor’easter began its onslaught on Long Island Friday afternoon, dumping snow and rain across the Island.Declaring a state of emergency allows the state to better aid local governments hit harder than others. The declaration also includes Bronx, Dutchess, Kings, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland and Westchester.The governor and other agencies throughout the day warned drivers to get off the roads as soon as possible and to make way for public work crews to clear snow-covered roadways.Traffic was moving at a snail-like pace on some roadways, including the Northern State Parkway where drivers pulled over to clear snow off their cars. Some cars had veered off the road and into trees while other drivers tried unsuccessfully to get their cars out of heavy packs of snow.Nassau County police reported Friday night that Route 135 is closed in both directions at exit 14 and that the southbound ramp is also closed from the Long Island Expressway due to snow.“As this winter storm unfolds, bringing heavy snow and high winds to parts of the state, I strongly urge all New Yorkers to exercise caution, avoid travel, and stay indoors,” Cuomo said. “To ensure an effective and rapid response to this winter storm, I am declaring a state of emergency for counties in the lower Hudson Valley, New York City, and Long Island so resources can get to communities where they are needed as quickly as possible.”The storm, which was expected to wallop most of the Northeast, led to nearly 5,000 flight cancellations, including more than 2,300 flights locally.John F. Kennedy Airport said it would cease operations at 6:30 p.m., the governor’s office said. LaGuardia was to suspend most flight operations at 4 p.m.The Long Island Rail Road was operating without any delays on most of its branches, reporting minimal disruptions due to storm conditions.The railroad notified officials that it will suspend service if snow accumulation reaches 10 to 13 inches.In preparation for the storm, the New York State Department of Transportation prepared hundreds of plow trucks to hit the roads. The state also has more than 470,000 tons of salt on hand to treat roads before and during the storm.The state also deployed extra New York State Troopers to Long Island to assist local police with their response efforts.The National Weather Service said the worst is yet to come and that the storm is expected to intensify at 9 p.m. All of Long Island remains under a blizzard warning until 1 p.m. Saturday.As of 6:30 p.m. the Long Island Power Authority, which ceased storm response operations to National Grid during the storm, reported that more than 5,000 customers were without power.last_img read more
