The team was down by 10 at the half, 34-24, but kept battering away at BC, which cooled off to shoot just 29 percent from the floor in the second half after shooting 51.7 percent in the first half.
Coleman, a junior who led the team with 15 points, took a shot from behind the arc, but the shot was off the mark, allowing the clock to run out and sending BC into the second round.

The date had to be close to 58 BC (a number of inscriptions in the era can be roughly dated) and could recall that there had been articles (notably by Bivar and Fussman) which settled the matter in the late seventies, and early eighties.
Curiously it was not the dating of the Azes era to 58 BC which attracted the greatest criticism.
The Azes era may well be identical with the 58 BC Krita/Malwa/Vikrama era but scholars will have to establish that synchronism independently.

That much was evident in the way the sixth-seeded Eagles (24-9) of the Big East arrived at the Bradley Center and handled business in scoring a 58-51 victory over the Mountain West champion Utes (24-9) in the first round of the St. Louis Regional (formerly the Midwest).
The victory was BC's record 90th over the last four seasons and enabled the Eagles to advance to the second round against No. 3 seed Georgia Tech, which staved off upset-minded Northern Iowa, 65-60, to set up a match between future Atlantic Coast Conference opponents.

However, in 306 BC, Demetrius, the son of Antigonus, landed at Carpasia and eventually mastered the island, holding it until 295 BC, when it was retaken by Ptolemy.
The latter period of Ptolemaic rule degenerated into a series ot internecine squabbles, and the insolent behaviour of the last Ptolemy towards a Roman senator, who was later elected tribune, gave Rome an excuse to annex the island.
Marcus Portius Cato arrived in 58 BC to implement the annexation, and Cyprus became a province of the Roman Empire.

Before a permanent camp could be established in Britain, however, Caesar had to return to Gaul and spent all of 53 BC subduing the Belgae and other rebellious tribes in the north including the Nervii, Menapii, and Treveri near the Rhine, as well as the Senones and Carnutes.

Early in the second half, however, the Spartans went on a 13-0 run to go up by 20 points with 13:45 left in the game before Bluffton mounted a comeback of their own with an 11-0 run that brought the deficit to six at 50-56 with 5:26 remaining.

 Rule of the Ptolemies & The Hellenistic Influences in Cyprus
After his death in 323 B.C. Cyprus was contested by his successors; the eventual victor was Ptolemy I of Egypt, who suppressed the kingdoms and made the island a province of his Egyptian kingdom.
He forced the last king of Salamis, Nicocreon, to commit suicide in 310 B.C., together with all his family; their cenotaph, a particularly fine specimen containing ornaments and clay effigies of the royal families, has been discovered at Salamis.
For two and a half centuries Cyprus remained a Ptolemaic possession, ruled by a strategus, or governor- general, until the island was annexed by the Roman Republic in 58 B.C. References:
