Phil Taylor hailed the Anthony Joshua of darts after Michael van Gerwen beat him to win the Premier League title. Van Gerwen added to his 2013 Premier League crown with a dominant showing at the O2 Arena on Thursday night, first beating Adrian Lewis in the semi-final before an 11-3 thrashing of The Power in the final.The Dutchman continues to sweep all before him and Taylor was quick to draw parallels with another dominant force in sport, the 16-time world champion admitting he was powerless to stop the Green Machine. He beat me up, he put me under pressure and he made me miss doubles. He is doing phenomenal things and I dont know how he does it, Taylor told Sky Sports.I tried to give it my best, I tried to relax and throw quicker or throw slower but I could not react against him. It is his finishing... his scoring is good but his finishing is phenomenal and that is where he hurts you.Its the combinations, its not just the one shot - he is like Anthony Joshua at the moment. Phil Taylor hailed phenomenal Michael van Gerwen I was gutted about last year but to get through to the semi-final in the league we have now is magnificent - we have got the best players I have ever been with. Ive been with them all, but these lads are different class.For Van Gerwen, it was a welcome return to the Premier League winners circle having only been victorious in the event once, despite four consecutive finishes at the top of the regular season standings.The Dutchman was playing in his fourth consecutive Premier League final and could not hide his delight at claiming the trophy again after a three-year gap. Premier League Finals Night recap A dramatic night at the O2 - as it happened I am glad I was the best tonight. I wanted to win back this trophy, and I am glad I took it back, Van Gerwen told Sky Sports.I only lost one game in the Premier League, against James Wade on the first night, and what can I say, it feels fantastic and I am over the moon to win the title.It was a while ago that I won it for the first time and I wanted to have it back. I have played strong in this tournament, Ive finished top of the table four years in a row and now I can hold the trophy for a second time. Losing finalist Phil Taylor says Michael van Gerwen put him under extreme pressure during his Premier League final and he could not match the Dutchman Vanquished semi-finalists Adrian Lewis and Gary Anderson were in despondent mood after below-par showings in their semi-final defeats.World champion and defending Premier League champion Anderson was beaten by Taylor in the second semi-final but admitted he was far from his best and vowed to return stronger.Its really disappointing for me. I missed too many doubles and then when I got back at Phil, I just couldnt get level, but Ill be back.After the start I had to the season, I did well just to get to the Play-Offs, but when youre here, you want to win it and Ive not done that. Adrian Lewis was left to reflect on what might have been at The O2 For Lewis, who was beaten 10-4 by eventual winner Van Gerwen, he has promised to hit the practice room in a bid to improve for the months ahead,It was one of those nights for me, said Lewis. I felt like I threw good darts but they were landing just on the wrong sides of the wires, but Michael was the better man and deserved to win.Im proud to have reached the Play-Offs in such a competitive field, but I know Ive got more to give in the coming months and Ill get back on the practice board.

Clearance Yeezy For Sale .Y. -- In a span of three days, Shabazz Napier and Connecticut knocked out both Philadelphia schools in the NCAA tournament.Danny Manning grew up watching Wake Forest play games at the Greensboro Coliseum, memories that linger in his mind all these years later. He never thought one day hed coach the Demon Deacons. Manning, the former Kansas star who spent the past two seasons coaching Tulsa, was hired Friday as Wake Forests basketball coach. Hell be introduced at a news conference next week on campus in Winston-Salem, N.C., a short drive from where Manning grew up. "I spent a lot of my formative childhood years in North Carolina," Manning told The Associated Press on Friday at AT&T Stadium, the site of this weekends Final Four. "I spent the majority of my life in Kansas," Manning said, "but this was a chance to be a part of a university that I share the same values and history with." His hiring ends Wake Forests two-week search for a replacement for Jeff Bzdelik, who resigned under intense public pressure following four mostly unremarkable seasons. Manning, who was 38-29 with two post-season berths in two seasons at Tulsa, interviewed this week and toured the campus in Winston-Salem on Wednesday before taking the job two days later. His hiring is considered somewhat risky because of his lack of head coaching experience, but theres no question he brings instant name recognition to a program that dropped to near the bottom of the expanded Atlantic Coast Conference. "There have been very few players who have had as much success on the court as Danny," Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman said in a statement. "He has played for and worked under a number of legendary coaches and he has been successful in his coaching career. We fully expect that Dannys coaching career will reflect the excellence of his playing career." Manning attended Greensboro Page High School before his family moved to Lawrence, Kan., for his senior year, and when it was time to choose a college, he picked Kansas over North Carolina. After his "Danny and the Miracles" team won the national title in Kansas City, not far from the Jayhawks campus, Manning was drafted first overall by the Los Angeles Clippers in 1988. He made two All-Star teams during a career maarred by injuries before joining coach Bill Selfs staff at Kansas in 2003.dddddddddddd Responsible primarily for working with post players, Manning was promoted to assistant coach in 2006 and two years ago earned his first head coaching job at Tulsa. Self called Manning "one of the most accomplished, humble people youll ever meet." The 47-year-old Manning took the Golden Hurricane to the CBI in his first year and followed that by guiding them to the Conference USA tournament title and their first NCAA tournament berth since 2003. They earned a No. 13 seed and lost to UCLA in their tournament opener. Tulsa forward Rashad Smith said he found out about Mannings move through teammates and media reports, though he said the coach texted him shortly thereafter. Guard James Woodard said it was "kind of shocking. "You know in the back of your mind, the run we had this year, there would be a lot of opportunities out there," Woodard said. "Im happy for him." Wake Forest never came close to making the NCAA tournament under Bzdelik, who stepped down March 20. Bzdelik went 51-76 with a 17-51 record in ACC play, and won only two league road games. Eight players transferred out during his tenure, and the Demon Deacons have been one of the youngest programs in the country -- with only one fourth-year senior in each of the past two years. Barring any more transfers, Manning will inherit a team with eight players who are either juniors or redshirt juniors -- including promising big man Devin Thomas and tempo-setting guard Codi Miller-McIntyre. As details of Mannings hiring trickled across Twitter, Miller-McIntyre tweeted: "Finally its over! Time to get back to work." Manning called the Demon Deacons a "sleeping giant," one that he believes will be able to contend with Tobacco Road rivals Duke and North Carolina in the near future. "A few years back, they were ranked No. 1 in the country," Manning told AP. "Theyve had great players. Youre about Chris Paul, Tim Duncan, just to name a few, because theyve had quite a few. "Im looking forward to going there and being part of that great tradition." ' ' '
