UDC Men's Basketball Suffers 69-66 Loss at Mercy

January 30, 2014

Spirited Second Half Comeback Falls Short in 69-66 Firebirds Loss at Mercy

DOBBS FERRY, NY – With just seven players in the lineup, the Firebirds still nearly came all the way back from down by as many as 15 in the second half, but a pair of free-throws by Mercy's Terrance Murchie with two seconds left in regulation sealed the Mavericks' 69-66 victory in Thursday night's East Coast Conference matchup.
Sophomore guard Omar Abbas (Electrical Engineering – Alexandria, Egypt/Egyptian American HS) and junior transfer forward Lenjo Kilo carried the majority of the scoring load for the Firebirds, who lost their sixth straight game to fall to 3-13 overall (1-9 ECC). Abbas led all scorers with 24 points on 7-of-14 FG shooting, including 6-of-11 from three-point range and a perfect 4-of-4 at the free-throw line. Kilo notched his sixth double-double of the season with 20 points and a game-high 14 rebounds. Junior transfer guard Prince Ritson (Psychology – Greenbelt, MD/Bowie St.) also pitched in 12 points, 10 of which came in the second half.
Mercy featured a balanced attack which saw four of its five starters score in double-figures, led by Murchie's 15 points and P.J. Walters' 14. The Mavericks (2-17, 2-11 ECC) were the more efficient offensive team with 12 assists and just seven turnovers while the Firebirds totaled 11 assists and 18 turnovers. Mercy turned UDC's 18 turnovers into 21 points on the night, which ultimately helped them even the season series with the Firebirds after UDC earned an 83-66 victory back on December 14th the last time these two schools met in the nation's capital.
The Mavericks jumped out to a 14-5 lead a little over seven minutes into the action when UDC first-year head coach Mike Riley called a timeout to settle his team down. Out of the timeout, Abbas knocked down a three-pointer and later a pair of free-throws to cut the lead down to four, 14-10. The Mercy lead hovered between four and seven for the next couple of minutes when a 5-0 Firebirds mini-surge brought UDC within two, 22-20 with 5:24 to play in the first half. But at that point, the Mavericks used an 8-0 run comprised of four consecutive layups to bolster their lead back up to 10 with just under three minutes remaining. They would take that 10-point margin (37-27) into the locker room for halftime.
Still a 10-point game nearly five minutes into the second half, Mercy went on a 5-0 run to take its largest lead of the night, 52-37 near the 13-minute mark. For the next 10 minutes, UDC out-scored the Mavericks 18-5, pulling within two (57-55) after a conventional three-point play by Kilo (who made 8-of-10 at the free-throw line on the night) with 2:46 remaining in regulation. But Mercy responded with a 6-1 run to up its lead to 63-56 with 1:24 to play.
Still a six-point Mavericks lead with 26 seconds remaining, Ritson was fouled in the act of shooting a three-pointer, and sank all three at the line to make the score 66-63. The Firebirds then fouled Walters, who made his first shot but missed the second. Walters rushed into the lane to follow his own missed free-throw, but then missed the follow, and Kilo snagged the rebound. Kilo sent an outlet pass to Ritson, who quickly worked his way up the floor and buried his first and only three-pointer of the game to bring the Firebirds within one, 67-66 with three ticks remaining. Kilo fouled out of the game in an effort to stop the clock with two seconds left which sent Murchie to the line to shoot two. Murchie made them both, and Ritson could not get a half-court heave to fall at the buzzer as the home Mavericks held on for the victory.
The Firebirds will look to end their six-game losing slide when they host league foe St. Thomas Aquinas on Saturday, February 1st at 4 p.m. for Youth Day at UDC Gym.

BSU's 3rd win of the season was not easy...




ETTRICK, Va. – Bowie State secured its third straight win, but it wasn’t easy as the Bulldogs held off Virginia State by a score of 62-59. The victory sets the Bulldogs record to 3-1 in the North, 5-3 in the CIAA and 10-11 overall

Leading the way for the Bulldogs was sophomore Andre Jackson (Owings Mills, Md.) with a game-high 15 points to go along with five rebounds and two blocked shots. Senior Carlos Smith (Baltimore, Md.) and fellow senior Ray Gatling (Oxon Hill, Md.) contributed 13 and 12 points respectively.

Larry Savage (Onancock, Va.) led the Trojans with 13 points on 4-of-5 shooting and grabbed six rebounds. Lamar Kearse (Syracuse, N.Y.) and Allen Harris (Boston, Mass.) recorded 10 points each. Kevin Wiggins (Newport News, Va.) and Kahill Tate (Washington, D.C.) ripped down a game-high seven rebounds apiece.

The Bulldogs jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead on a pair of free throws by Smith, a 3-pointer by Gatling and a triple by Smith.

Virginia State (11-8, 4-4 CIAA, 2-2 North) responded with an 8-2 run to close the gap to 10-8 at the 15:37 mark and a jumper by Harris created the games first tie at 12-all.

A Smith layup and free throw put Bowie State back in front at 15-12 only to have VSU’s Harris give the Trojans their first lead of the night at 16-15.

The Virginia State lead was brief following back-to-back field goals by junior Cameron Knox (Baltimore, Md.) and a trifecta by Jackson to give Bowie State a little breathing room 22-16.

The lead would actually change hands one more time with Virginia State heading into the locker room with a 36-34 lead at halftime.

The second half was back and forth affair and featured 10 ties and 11 lead changes. Neither team led by more than four in the final 20 minutes.

Following the 12th tie of the second half, Bowie State junior Zafir Williams (Philadelphia, Pa.) popped a jumper with 4:54 remaining to give the Bulldogs a 58-56 lead.

Both teams went scoreless over the next three minutes until Virginia State’s Kearse drilled a 3-pointer to shift the advantage over to the Trojans with 1:34 left in this key Northern Division clash.

BSU’s Jackson was fouled by Kearse 13 seconds later and Jackson converted both free throws to put the Bulldogs in front for good.

Virginia State had an opportunity to steal a win, but their last shot attempt missed the mark, BSU’s Smith grabbed the rebounded and found a wide open Williams for an easy layup as time expired.

“At this time of the year, this was a much needed win”, said a very happy Bulldogs head coach Darrell Brooks. “I just really proud of our guys because it was tough, physical game on the road and we stuck together … This would have been a tough game to lose and I know it was tough for them (VSU) because both teams worked their butts off!”

Bowie State will travel to Elizabeth City (N.C.) State  to take on the Vikings at 5pm Saturday

So you thought only smokers get lung cancer

So You Thought Only
Smokers Get Lung Cancer

If you thought only smokers get lung cancer, think again. It’s true that smoking accounts for nearly nine out of ten cases of lung cancer. But quite a few non-smokers get it as well.
If almost all lung cancer cases are smoking-related, how can it be that it’s still a scary threat to us non-smokers, too? The reason is simple. . .
Continued below…

In this weeks exposé…
A top executive of a major pharmaceutical company spills the naked truth about the drugs you and your family take... which drugs heal, and which ones KILL... what doctors turn to when they don't know the cure... what they do when they themselves or their loved ones are stricken with disease or illness... what life-saving resource they insist should be in every home. Watch this must-see video now because your life -- or the life of your loved ones -- may depend on it.

Overall, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. It kills more people each year than breast cancer, prostate cancer and colon cancer combined. So many people die of lung cancer, the roughly 13% who didn’t smoke still adds up to a lot of people.
Something like 14,000 non-smokers die of lung cancer each year, while fewer than 10,000 die of melanoma, the deadly form of skin cancer that people worry about so much – the one for which they run public service announcements warning us to stay out of the sun.
Aside from smoking, lung cancer gets no such publicity. The authorities who concoct these annoying ad campaigns give no thought to a non-smoker’s risk of cancer. Yet the five-year survival rate for lung cancer is terrible. This is one you DON’T want to get.
For those of you who don’t read all the way to end of these articles (I know you’re out there) let me get right to the ways a non-smoker can get lung cancer. . .
Know if you’re at risk...
ACS says your family history may predispose you to lung cancer—especially if you have an immediate family member who has or had lung cancer.
Certain lifestyle or environmental factors may also increase your risk of developing the disease. The list includes:
  • Secondhand smoke: Exposure to smoke at home or work may significantly increase your risk
  • Exposure to asbestos or other pollutants: Carcinogenic chemicals in the workplace increase lung cancer risk, especially if you smoke
  • Exposure to radon: This colorless, odorless radioactive gas is found in some houses and is a leading cause of lung cancer
Radon is considered the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. So have your house checked out to make sure it’s not contaminated with this substance. You can see a full discussion of radon inIssue #117.
And by the way,
how bad is smoking anyway?
Smoking increases your risk of lung cancer every bit a much as they say. Overall, lung cancer strikes one American out of 13 in the course of a lifetime. But for male smokers, the lifetime risk leaps to about one out of six, and for female smokers to more than one out of ten (11.6 percent, to be exact).
But wait, it gets worse if you’re a heavy smoker (defined as smoking more than five cigarettes a day). Nearly one out of four male heavy smokers can expect to get lung cancer, and around one out of five (18.5%) of female heavy smokers.
Looked at another way, all male smokers, “light” and “heavy smokers" averaged together, have 13 times the risk of getting lung cancer that a male non-smoker faces.
Just in case you’re a smoker and figuring you’ll fall into the lucky 75 to 80 percent who don’t get lung cancer, let me throw a little cold water on that. Smoking is also implicated in heart disease, mouth and throat cancer, bladder cancer – in fact, it increases the risk of a whole list of deadly diseases. It’s a suicidal habit.
It breaks my heart to see a young person smoking on the street. What on earth are they thinking?
Hard to find early
Lung cancer got to the top of the death charts, in part, because it has a stealthy way of eluding detection in the early stages.
According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), most lung cancers don’t cause ANY symptoms until they’ve spread too far to be cured.
The ACS says you should also be alert for the following common symptoms:
  • A cough that does not go away or gets worse
  • Chest pain that worsens with deep breathing, coughing, or laughing
  • Weight loss and loss of appetite
  • Coughing up blood or rust-colored phlegm
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feeling tired or weak
  • Infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia that don’t go away or keep coming back
  • New onset of wheezing
Because many of these symptoms can be caused by conditions other than lung cancer—it’s best to see your doctor right away so the exact cause can be determined.
Breathe in. . .breathe out. . .
find out if you’ve got lung cancer
Someday, your doctor will have a better way to find this deadly disease early: A simple breath test will be at his disposal that will give you a quick and accurate diagnosis.
This promising new development in cancer screening comes to us courtesy of researchers at the Respiratory Institute at the famous Cleveland Clinic.
According to Peter J. Mazzone, MD, FCCP, director of the lung cancer program and lead researcher, tumor growth causes cancer cells to release a special chemical. Using a breath test to detect the presence of this chemical could indicate that a patient has lung cancer.
Dr. Mazzone told Science Daily that the Cleveland Clinic researchers compared 82 patients with untreated lung cancer with a control group of 155 people who were considered at risk for lung cancer or who had benign lung nodules.
The researchers asked these patients to breathe normally while they used a chemical sensor called a colorimetric sensor array to analyze their breath.
The colors on this sensor are designed to change when exposed to various chemicals. If the patients’ breath contained chemical markers for lung cancer, the array would show that in a pattern of color changes.
The colorimetric sensor array continually monitored the chemicals that the patients exhaled. This produced sensor changes that accurately distinguished the breath of people with lung cancer from the control group.
The findings suggest that this type of breath test could be an effective early test for lung cancer.
Good science or hocus pocus?
Before you decide that cancer detection from a breath test is mere nonsense, consider this…
Dogs have an amazing sense of smell that’s about 100,000 times more sensitive than ours.
You’ve seen our canine friends used to sniff out everything from drugs at an airport to underground gas pipes.
By the same token, their amazing sniff sense can also detect diseases such as cancer, diabetes and epilepsy.
By just smelling a patient’s urine, they can sniff out bladder cancer. And smelling your breath can help them detect early and late lung and breast cancer.
Essentially, CANCER STINKS and dogs can smell it!
This is because your breath contains chemicals known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
In a press statement, Dr. Mazzone explained, “Our cells use energy, just like a car burns fuel. Just as you get exhaust from a car’s engine, cells produce exhaust from their chemical processes.”
Your lungs produce the bulk of that ‘exhaust.’ So Dr. Mazzone’s team has devised a test that is as sensitive to these chemicals as a dog’s sense of smell would be.
Other diseases have distinct smells too
Natural News article summarized many expert opinions on the health benefits of colostrum, including the following recommendations:
  • Doctors use breath signatures from heart-transplant patients to detect alkanes. These chemicals indicate that your immune system is rejecting the organ and that heart cells are experiencing oxidative damage that forces them to degrade fatty acids.
  • Anesthesiologists use carbon dioxide tests to ensure they are placing breathing tubes down the right airway.
  • Doctors test for nitric oxide in breath to determine whether asthma patients are responding to their medications
Given these current uses of breath tests for disease detection—you can see why a cancer breath test might not be so farfetched! I hope the inventors can bring it to market soon.

This vegetable kills the most deadly cancer cells

The News about
This Cancer-Killing Vegetable
Just Keeps Getting Better

Out of all the natural ways to fight off cancer and live a long and healthy life, eating good food is my favorite. Now scientists have discovered that one of the healthiest foods known, broccoli, has even more cancer-fighting properties than originally thought.
Compounds in broccoli can kill the most feared, chemo-resistant cancer cells. Other illnesses it protects against include diabetes, osteoarthritis, hypertension, and allergies. There’s even a new broccoli extract you rub into your skin. Here’s the latest. . .

Millionaire's Amazing Secret Can Radically
Transform Your Health
For most people, wrinkles... forgetfulness... low energy... sleep trouble... and an onslaught of health problems are the normal part of aging.
But one Beverly Hills millionaire proved they don't have to be! At 65 years of age, "Mister B" is at the peak of health. He's bursting with energy... never gets sick... has normal blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels... boasts a laser-sharp memory... and looks decades younger than his chronological age.
What's his secret?
He does ONE thing differently than most everyone else. 
Click here
 to discover his age-defying, fountain-of-youth recipe—and dramatically improve your health.

Broccoli is part of the cruciferous vegetable family, a group that includes cabbage, kale, cauliflower, collard greens, and Brussels sprouts.
But broccoli in particular leads the pack with bountiful amounts of sulforaphane, a powerful, cancer-protective sulfur compound that helps your liver with detoxification and kills off nearly indestructible cancer stem cells.
Broccoli sprouts are even better. These are three- to four-day-old broccoli plants that look like alfalfa and taste like radishes. They boast up to 100 times more sulforaphane per unit of weight than a head of broccoli. If you’re among the people (like the first George Bush) who don’t like broccoli, take this as a hint: The sprouts not only taste different but you don’t have to eat as large a quantity.
A high level of sulforaphane is not broccoli’s only benefit. Among other things, broccoli has high levels of fiber and vitamin C. On the anti-cancer front, it’s packed with small amounts of selenium and large amounts of indole-3-carbinol, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-cancer activity.
Indole-3-carbinol is converted to diindolylmethane (DIM) by the digestive process. DIM is readily available as a food supplement – but it does not contain the full range of benefits from eating the vegetable.
Even so, it has a lot of benefits. Indole-3-carbinol blocks the growth of cancer cells and boosts DNA repair. A good way to describe it is that broccoli has the ability to turn on the genes that prevent cancer development, while turning off those genes that help cancer spread.
The all-around champion
cancer-fighting vegetable
The anti-cancer compound sulforaphane is processed from something called glucoraphanin and myrosinase, which broccoli has in high levels.
As I mentioned, it’s sulforaphane that plays a role in eradicating cancer stem cells. According to a study by researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, sulforaphane inhibits breast cancer stem cells and prevents new tumors from growing. This is significant because current chemotherapy treatments are ineffective against cancer stem cells.
Stem cells are the reason why cancer so often returns and spreads following chemo treatments. A brief period of remission – an apparent “cure” – is too often followed by a worse case of cancer than the patient started with, as these potent cancer “seeds” take root and multiply.
Incredibly, the benefits of broccoli aren’t specific to just breast cancer or any other particular form of cancer. Sulforaphane seems to block multiple steps common to cancer formation in a variety of different types of cancers.
Here’s another reason to love sulforaphane: It looks like it also protects against skin cancer. But the trick isn’t in eating it, it’s in rubbing it on your skin. This is news to me, and very interesting. . .
A team of researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Arizona Cancer Center is working on a topical broccoli sprout solution. They already know sulforaphane is effective at blocking sunburns, and they believe it can activate protective enzymes in the skin. The main benefit, if the treatment comes to market, is for folks with weak immune systems who could apply sulforaphane to their skin to reduce their cancer risk.
How to eat broccoli for maximum benefit
Another perk of broccoli’s cancer-fighting ability is that you don’t have to eat mass quantities. Roughly 10 spears of broccoli per week should be enough to give you cancer-fighting protection, and you can consume that much in just two meals.
The main thing you have to be careful of if you use broccoli to prevent cancer is not to destroy the enzymes during the cooking process. You’ll kill off all the myrosinase enzyme after cooking broccoli for just two minutes in the microwave, or steaming it for more than seven minutes. (Myrosinase in broccoli is needed for the sulforaphane to form.)
If you boil broccoli, you’ll significantly reduce its health benefits. Five minutes of boiling results in up to a 30 percent loss of sulforaphane. I find two or three minutes is adequate (cut the spears into smaller pieces so they cook faster). And, of course, eating broccoli raw in a salad or as broccoli sprouts avoids the whole problem.
If you want to try broccoli sprouts, you’ll benefit from the fact that they contain 20 to 50 times more of the chemoprotective compounds than do mature broccoli heads.
You can even grow the sprouts at home in a window box or under a grow light. A pound of seeds can reportedly produce ten pounds of sprouts. That makes it a remarkable value, compared to buying supplements.
A recent study in The British Journal of Nutrition recommended combining broccoli with broccoli sprouts to double the anti-cancer effect. Eat that combination just three to five times a week for maximum benefit.
There’s also the option of a green powder formula made of broccoli. You’ll find it at any quality health food store. I recommend choosing something that’s pharmaceutical-grade and organic.
Researchers are working on a way to extract and preserve sulforaphane in pill form, but at this time it’s not a recommended regular supplement. Only DIM is available.
One of the simplest “treatments” you can turn to
If you ever tire of broccoli, you can get similar levels of sulforaphane from mustard, radishes, arugula, and wasabi. My recommendation is to combine broccoli with broccoli sprouts and top it off with a mustard sauce so you get the highest possible dose of sulforaphane.
Remember, diet is one of the most important factors that influences your chances to develop or defeat cancer. Incorporating broccoli into your weekly regimen, or even just the sprouts, will give you a significant leg up in staying healthy.
When it comes to some of the cancer-fighting substances in foods, you’re better off taking a megadose in a pill because it’s so hard to eat enough of the food to get a clinical dose. Our last issue talked about one of the most powerful food extracts. If you missed it, fear not, you can scroll down and read it below. . .

Olympic Athlete Gives a Gold Medal
To This Immune Booster

Most newborn babies either get mother’s milk or cow’s milk as the first meal when they’re born.
In either case, the milk contains colostrum, which has nutrients designed to maintain your health and prevent disease. This valuable nutrient is found in the milk of all mammals. Keep reading and you’ll see why. . .

Why are these doctors
canceling colonoscopies?
This video is not for the faint of heart.

These recently discovered details are gruesome...but they change everything we know about colonoscopies.

And many doctors will not reveal this information to their patients. Why? Because they can't stand to part with the $7,000 (or more) price tags.

Just watch one minute of this presentation and you'll understand--canceling your next colonoscopy could be the best decision you've ever made for your health.

When you're ready--visit here.

If you're 50, and especially if you're over 65--you must watch this presentation. This new information regarding colonoscopies could save your life.

The reason it’s in mother’s milk is that stopping disease in its tracks is ALWAYS better than scrambling to cure diseases after they’ve got you in their grip. Scientists recognize colostrum as a powerful immune booster.
And the health benefits of colostrum aren’t limited to newborn infants. Colostrum also has a remarkable ability to stamp out the causes of most disease and infection in adults who take it as a supplement. I’ve come across one or two stories of people who reversed cancer using nothing but colostrum.
It enables your body to get to work repairing and rebuilding years of damage from unhealthy living—thereby allowing you to enjoy an abundance of robust health.
This is probably why eight-time Olympic speed skater medalist Apolo Ohno gives bovine colostrum two ‘golden’ thumbs up! In an endorsement for a bovine colostrum supplement, Ohno said he used it in two Olympic contests because:
“[It] helped me stay healthy, recover faster and be at the peak of my game. ”
What does Ohno know that you don’t?
If you read this newsletter regularly, you already know about the amazing immune boosters in colostrum from Issue #208.
For starters, colostrum provides a rich supply of the protein calledlactoferrin. This strand of amino acids binds to iron and delivers it where your body needs it. It also helps stop abnormal cancer cells from using this iron to grow and spread.
But that’s not all…
Lactoferrin is also a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent the formation of cell-damaging free radicals that can lead to disease and premature aging.
Clinical studies have proven that lactoferrin can destroy HIV…herpes… hepatitis and other viruses…
And other clinical studies published in the journal Biochemistry and Cell Biology showed that bovine lactoferrin significantly inhibited colon, esophagus, lung, and bladder cancers in laboratory rats.
But lactoferrin isn’t the only thing in colostrum to help protect your health…
Colostrum components turbocharge your immune system!
Not only is colostrum a wonderful source of lactoferrin, but it also contains other immune boosters to help protect your health. This includes:
  1. Transfer factors (TFs) — Bovine colostrum is full of immune-boosting transfer factors, such as hydrogen peroxide, IgA and IgG-type immunoglobulins. According to Burton Goldberg, author of the book Alternative Medicine, TFs can teach the protein antibodies of your immune system to recognize specific antigens and communicate that they are present. In doing so, TFs from colostrum supplements provide resistance to infection and disease.
  2. (Prolyproline-Rich Polypeptide (PRP) — helps balance the immune function by regulating the thymus gland, which produces T-cells. It also helps balance the overactive immune response common to diseases like arthritis and lupus. It does this by blocking overproduction of T-cells and lymphocytes. This helps reduce the pain and swelling associated with autoimmune diseases.
Transfer factors, PRP and other growth factors in colostrum have been shown to:
  • Encourage apoptosis (natural cell death) so that your immune system flushes out cancer cells before they become tumors.
  • Heal and protect delicate intestinal lining from damage
  • Purge harmful cryptosporidium parasites that can cause acute diarrhea or even be life-threatening to a person with compromised immunity
  • Reduce blood vessel growth to cancer tissue
  • And much more!
Medical experts endorse colostrum supplements
A Natural News article summarized many expert opinions on the health benefits of colostrum, including the following recommendations:
“If you must take antibiotics, restore the body's ‘friendly’ bacteria by taking a probiotic supplement,…. colostrum is another effective probiotic that can be taken on a rotating basis with acidophilus and bifidobacteria. Take 300 milligrams three times daily, between meals.”
—Smart Medicine For Healthier Living by Janet Zand LAc OMD Allan N Spreen MD CNC James B LaValle RPh ND, page 79
Phytic acid … is a powerful antioxidant. Phytic acid is found in very high concentrations in colostrum,…. A specially formulated form of phytic acid, called Cellular Forte with IP-6, is used to treat cancers of many types. One of its major effects is to prevent iron from reaching cancer cells. Its iron binding power is so great that it is also used to treat the iron-overload disease, hemochromatosis.
—Health And Nutrition Secrets by Russell L Blaylock MD, page 335
Another immunomodulator made from milk colostrum is Cytolog, which may also prove helpful in boosting the immune system to treat cancer. —Alternative Medicine by Burton Goldberg, page 602
These are just a few expert opinions on the benefits of colostrum supplements. Perhaps you’ll now consider it as part of your healthy defense against cancer. You might decide that it deserves a gold medal for effective cancer prevention!
