Cadogan had a chance to send his team into the lead but could only hit one of two free throws for a tied game at 68. with 49.1 seciods to go.But with the tension rising with every second Kwakwani lost possession to the pressing Jets side and, after taking the ball cross court, the pass went in to Wilson on the left low post. He rounded his man and swished the ball for the go-ahead basket with 15.2 seconds remaining.Then Jets defended well to ensure victory was once again earned from pretty good team play as they were crowned the new champions and left Kwakwani dejected from that heartbreaking loss 70-68.The top shooters for the game for the winners came from Wilson with 23 points, Vibert Benjamin 17, Keison Butters 13 and George Yearwood 10.

Here’s what analysts say Facebook Market selloff may be disconnected from fundamentals, but that won’t stop volatility from rising The stock-market sell-off is going to be a significant drag on the U.S. economy this year as wealthy households feel its impact, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc.Lower equity prices could take half a percentage point off U.S. gross-domestic product growth in 2019, with overall tighter financial conditions restricting expansion by around 1 percentage point, Goldman economist Daan Struyven wrote in a note Tuesday. In October, he had said the positive wealth effect from equity gains in 2017 and early 2018 had likely evaporated.“The hit to the wealth level from a 1 per cent decline in stock prices is now about three times larger than in the late ’80s for the top-10 per cent of households and a third larger for those in the 50-90th percentiles,” Struyven said, citing the increase in equity holdings as a share of disposable household income. It’s official: Wall Street just made $100 billion for the first time ever Three things that might give investors hope amid fears of a looming recession Sorry Detroit, the next North American car recession has already started Struyven argued against the idea that the wealth effect from the stock market might be limited due to a higher concentration of stock ownership than in previous decades, and a lower propensity to spend among rich households. To prove that this thesis doesn’t hold up, he cited increases in equity holdings, as well as a high sensitivity of luxury-goods spending to stock-market fortunes, as evidence.That’s at odds with a paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research in 2013 that finds “at best weak evidence of a link between stock-market wealth and consumption,” and asserts that the housing market has much more of a wealth effect.The share of personal consumption expenditures spent on jewelry is “highly correlated with moves in the stock market,” Struyven wrote in the Jan. 15 report.“Focusing on a sample since 1995, we find large effects of the stock market on luxury spending,” Struyven said. Regressions of spending growth on stock price changes confirm a strong relationship “for jewelry and watches, pleasure boats and pleasure aircraft.”Bloomberg.com January 16, 201912:29 PM EST Filed under News Economy Comment Twitter Email 0 Comments Share this storyGoldman says rich people will drag down the U.S. economy this year Tumblr Pinterest Google+ LinkedIn advertisement ‘Time for extra caution’: Why this market selloff is different than most Featured Stories More The share of personal consumption expenditures spent on jewelry is “highly correlated with moves in the stock market,” Goldman Sachs economist wrote in a Jan. 15 report.Victor J.
