TOLEDO As long as Palestine-Hutsonville wasnt putting Windsor away at the free throw line, the Blue Devils head coach Silas Pogue thought his team had a chance.
I thought, Here we go, Pogue said. It was fun.
The Tigers were 5-for-14 in the final 1:25 of Tuesdays game, until Trent Newlin became the first Pal-Hut player, during that stretch, to make both free throw attempts, giving the Tigers their last two points of a 72-65 regional win.
Windsor got within five points, 68-63, on two Alex Allen free throws with 23 seconds left, but that would be as close as the Blue Devils got.
Tristan Warner was called for an intentional foul on the ensuing inbounds pass, sending Pal-Huts Graham Alspach to the line. He made 1-of-2, but the Tigers got the ball back and Alspach added another free throw.
It was too late for the Blue Devils, even though Allen scored the last two of his 18 points on the next possession, with 10 seconds left.
The Blue Devils dug themselves into a hole twice in the second half, one at the beginning of the third quarter and again at the start of the fourth.
Pal-Hut used a quick 4-0 run to take a seven-point lead in the third quarter, which was its biggest at the time. The Tigers led by nine points after three.
We hit a cold spell in the third quarter, Pogue said. We got rattled. I thought we were tired.
Windsors nine-point output in the quarter was its smallest of the game, but Pal-Hut added to the lead from the start of the final quarter.

JERUSALEM (AP) In the Holy Land, the state of Palestine does not yet exist. But in Hollywood, it already has an Oscar finalist.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ announcement that “Omar,” one of this year’s candidates for best foreign language film, hailed from “Palestine” has raised eyebrows in these parts, where Israelis and the Palestinians are engaged in peace talks aimed at establishing just such a state.
For starters, much of the drama was shot in the Israeli city of Nazareth, home of director Hany Abu-Assad and many of the movie’s actors, rather than in the West Bank, where much of the movie is set. In contrast, Abu-Assad’s 2005 film “Paradise Now,” which was also nominated for an Oscar, was billed at the time as coming from the “Palestinian Territories” to avoid the inevitable political saber-rattling over sovereignty.
The United Nations General Assembly’s 2012 recognition of Palestine as a non-member state, over fierce Israeli objections, paved the way for the Academy to change its definition this time around. Abu-Assad also said the film qualified as such because it was the first to be almost completely financed by Palestinians. In any case, he added, the film’s nationality, like his own, was a matter of identity, not geography.
“As long as we are under occupation, it doesn’t matter what it is called,” said Abu-Assad, 52, who, like many Israeli Arabs, considers himself Palestinian even though he holds Israeli citizenship. “That doesn’t make us Israeli. As long as the state is exclusive, you can’t identify with the state as long as it doesn’t recognize you as equal.”
The debate over the film’s land of origin touches on the complex status of Israel’s Arab minority, who make up about a fifth of Israel’s 8 million citizens.
Israeli Arabs remained in the country during the war surrounding Israel’s establishment in 1948, in contrast to hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who fled or were driven out during the fighting and later came under Israeli occupation when it captured the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the 1967 Middle East war.
Israeli Arabs hold full citizenship rights, generally enjoy a higher standard of living and more civil liberties than in neighboring Arab countries, and in many ways have become integrated into Israeli society. Yet they often suffer discrimination and complain of second-class status and frequently identify with their Palestinian brethren. Abu-Assad said he considers all of Israel “under occupation” since Arabs do not have full equality with the Jewish majority.
Yousef Abu Wardi, a veteran Israeli film actor, said he could relate to the identity crisis many of his fellow Arabs felt. “To be Israeli, does that mean I have to stop being an Arab?” he asked. “Until the final borders are defined here, it is going to be very hard to define who is Israeli and who is Palestinian.”
In “Omar,” a love story set against the backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Abu-Assad explores some of these elements by focusing on the plight of Palestinians who collaborate with Israel.

Following the state Senates lead, Republicans in Arizonas House of Representatives voted on Thursday in favor of a new billto turn their states LGBT residents into second-class citizens. According to Arizona Republicans and their supporters throughout the country, they did this to protect religious liberty (a stark reminder that terrible decisions are often made in the name of an abstract good). Yet in spite of its lofty goal, in the real world, the bill, like bills put forward in Kansas, Idaho, Oklahoma, Hawaii and Mississippi, will become a weapon of exclusion and an impediment to the further integration of LGBT Americans into everyday life in America. A testament to ours being a time of universally recognized change on the issue of gay rights, social conservatives are mounting their most desperate assault on LGBT people since DOMA while utilizing the liberals language of inherent dignity and fundamental rights.
The bills differ somewhat in their particulars, but the basic thrust of each piece of legislation is the same: In the name of religious liberty, these laws would allow folks in both the private and the public spheres to refuse services to anyone whose behavior or assumedbehavior they considered sinful. Own a restaurant but dont want any LGBT people to use it as the location for a same-sex weddings after-party? Not to worry: Even if your town has anti-discrimination laws currently on the books, you can avoid getting sued by simply claiming your reasons are religious in nature. If the guy sitting at the counter looks to you like he might be gay, go ahead and tell him to hit the road. Republicans defend you when you say youre not discriminating but rather trying to live in accordance with your faith.
Needless to say, these are odious bills, so patently designed to allow some Americans to deny the rights and dignity of others that the frequently made comparisons to Jim Crow are depressingly appropriate. And while there are some signs that even those who dont support the rights of LGBT citizens see this kind of legislation as a bridge too far, the Arizona example shows that this kind of legislation is a frighteningly real possibility for millions of Americans. As Evan Hurst, associate director of the pro-gay rights nonprofit Truth Wins Out, told David Corn of Mother Jones, [O]ne would think the GOP would like to be electable among people under 50 sometime in the near future and would thus avoid supporting Jim Crow-style anti-gay legislation. But at this point, it looks like thats an open question.
As retrograde as this kind of legislation is, however, theres something ironically modern even vaguely progressive about the arguments its supporters have put forward in its defense.
If it were 10 years ago, during the time when Karl Rove infamously hoped to use opposition to same-sex marriage as a tool to increase turnout among evangelicals and secure George W. Bushs reelection, you wouldnt expect those on the religious right and their Republican allies to claim that their discriminatory legislation is about protecting civil rights. Instead of unpersuasively warning that those who hate gay people because of their religion are in danger of having their rights trampled upon, the anti-gay movement in American politics would focus their arguments on the sin of homosexuality and the dangers it poses to the social order. Their pitch would focus on LGBT people, not themselves.
Yet here we are in 2014, with gay marriage legal in more than a dozen states and with the social stigma against homosexuality less powerful than at any other time in American history. Now, the very same people who would once dismiss the notion that LGBT people have rights are adopting the rhetorical framework of their opponents, hoping to rebrand bigotry as an outgrowth of religious conviction. Instead of making an argument in favor of marginalizing a persecuted group, conservatives are now the ones hoping to claim the mantle of oppression and shoehorn themselves into the sphere of protected persons.
Its an utterly self-conscious act of disingenuousness and deception, too. As George Mason University public policy professor Mark Rozell once recommended they do, conservatives, understanding that their culture war language was repelling young people on the left and the right, have adopted the rhetoric of rights and tolerance that liberals currently own in an attempt to speak to secular types about the value of pluralism and religious conscience. It may be a savvy move, but the hypocrisy is stunning. Its as if the shadowy spymasters of the National Security Agency began arguing that their activities should be shielded from public scrutiny in the name of preserving theirprivacy rights.
Its risible, of course, but its not without precedent. The right has done this before, adopting the lefts own arguments while perverting them so egregiously that they barely resemble their former selves. Think of that other, older GOP claim to victimhood: reverse racism. Like reverse racism, the religious liberty defense implicitly grants the legitimacy of the liberal worldview while attempting to rejigger it in such a way that previously antithetical elements of the conservative perspective can survive in a new, less hospitable political environment. Just as pointing out white privilege and advocating for policies to counteract it in material, rather than just social, ways became a manifestation of reverse racism, so, too, does the attempt to fully integrate LGBT people into mainstream society become a form of ignoring religious liberty.
Ultimately, these conservatives grant too much legitimacy to the liberal narrative for their ersatz rights to survive under the weight of their own incoherence. The logic of inherent dignity and rights is too powerful, and its implications too easily understood, to be overcome by the rights desperate contortions. The religious liberty argument largely appeals to the kind of people who were once receptive to more straightforward, traditionalist arguments against homosexuality. As their numbers dwindle through the passage of time, and as generation after generation is raised in a culture that takes LGBT peoples humanity for granted, the religious liberty argument will be seen as the bizarre last gasp of fading order that it is.
It reminds me of nothing so much as that clich of modern politics, If youre explaining, youre losing. When it comes to electoral politics, that may be true. But when were talking about the larger political struggle between the ideologies of the left and right, I dont think its sufficient. In that context, its not explanation thats a sign of failure, but rather plagiarism. To put it differently: The simplest way for opponents of LGBT rights to know theyre now losing the debate is to do nothing more than listen to themselves speak.
