Men’s Basketball: Jan. 24 Scoreboard

first_imgJunior Thomas Walkup netted a strong closing few minutes, to lead SFA with 17 points. The native of Pasadena, Texas, finished 6-of-7 from the floor with a 3-pointer and perfect 4-of-4 showing from the free throw line, one of four ‘Jacks to finish in double figures. Senior center Marvin Frazier shook off back problems to regain his early-season form with 10 points, five rebounds and four blocked shots. Posting his first career double-digit scoring total was junior Matt Killian, notching 10 points in his first start of the season and eighth of his career. SFA will look to continue its winning ways and wrap up a two-game road swing with a visit to Lamar on Monday, Jan. 26. Tip is schedule for 7 p.m. in the Montagne Center. It was the Demons’ fourth straight victory in the series and Northwestern‘s 23rd consecutive Saturday afternoon matinee triumph. A&M-Corpus Christi then had solid defense to force a turnover, setting up Jordan’s go-ahead jumper at the 27.8-second mark. Each team went 1-for-2 at the line on their next possessions, and Thomas came up with a huge block with 12.3 seconds to play. Brown followed with a three-point attempt from the corner, but it was long. Jordan snared the rebound and sent it ahead to Ehab Amin, who slammed it home to ice the game. The Wildcats shot 48.9 percent from the field, made 4-of-16 from three-point range and were 13-of-21 at the foul line. Harrison Hawkins led the team with 18 points while Austin Cooke added 14 points and five rebounds. As part of its 50th Season celebration, HBU announced its 1980s All-Decade Team and wore 1980s replica throwback jerseys. McNeese got no closer than 10 afterwards, but stayed within range until the final surge by Northwestern. Northwestern State 93, McNeese State 67NATCHITOCHES, La. – The Northwestern State basketball team’s strong start helped lead the Demons Saturday in a 93-67 Southland Conference basketball win over visiting McNeese State. Nicholls opened the second half on a 10-2 run to take an eight-point lead at the 16-minute mark. Two minutes later a Travis Julien layup pushed the Colonels advantage to nine. Central Arkansas responded with six straight points, capped by a Kamba Mathieu layup to pull the Bears within three. The Nicholls lead hovered around five before a Luka Kamber 3-pointer broke open the scoring and the Colonels used a 7-0 run to grab an 11-point advantage with eight minutes remaining in the game. Central Arkansas fought back, pulling within four points, but a T.J. Carpenter layup and a Frye dunk reenergized Nicholls and the team held on in the final minutes to escape with the win. The Lumberjacks set the tone early, opening on a 12-1 run and held Sam Houston without a made basket from the field for 9:24 to lead the Bearkats 25-7. Despite a run by Sam Houston, the difference in score only dipped below double-figures for 30 seconds in taking a 39-29 lead into the locker room. He left the game with 4:08 remaining. So did sophomore guard Zeek Woodley, the nation’s No. 3 scorer, just past his 22.4 average with a 23-point outing on 10 of 15 aim, including 1 of 3 behind the arc. The 6-2 Woodley matched a career high with three blocks and had two steals. Northwestern put a competitive game out of reach down the stretch by scoring 15 unanswered points in just under five minutes, taking a 14-point advantage to a commanding 93-64 lead with 1:24 to go, notching their biggest win over McNeese since a 103-73 win that clinched the 2005 Southland regular-season title. Houston Baptist 79, Lamar 77HOUSTON, Texas – Houston Baptist saw its 13-point second half lead whittled down to one, but the Huskies came up with a pair of stops when they needed them most to score a 79-77 victory over Lamar in Southland Conference basketball Saturday night at Sharp Gym. The Huskies won their third-straight game, sweeping the homestand, and improving to 7-1 this season at Sharp. Jordan Howard headed up the offensive efforts for Central Arkansas, earning 18 points. Mathieu finished second in scoring with 15 points and grabbed a team-leading 10 boards. Mike Martin led the Bears with three assists and three steals. The Cardinals (10-5, 2-3) made six of their first seven shots of the game and jumped out to a 14-6 lead. The Wildcats (9-10, 3-3) quickly got back in the game, but UIW was able to expand their lead to 12 points after a layup by Kyle Hittle with 6:15 left in the half. The Cardinals maintained the double-digit lead until ACU’s Christian Albright made a layup at the buzzer to make it 42-34 UIW at the break. Stephen F. Austin 79, Sam Houston State 68HUNTSVILLE, Texas – The Stephen F. Austin men’s basketball team used a hot start and well-balanced attack to take over first place in the Southland Conference with a 79-68 victory over Sam Houston State on Saturday evening inside Bernard G. Johnson Coliseum. Stephen F. Austin 79, Sam Houston State 68Northwestern State 93, McNeese State 67UIW 77, Abilene Christian 61Nicholls 71, Central Arkansas 61Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 71, New Orleans 67 (OT)Houston Baptist 79, Lamar 77 The Colonels (5-11, 2-4 SLC) were tied 32-32 with the Bears (0-17, 0-6 SLC) at the midway point, but found another gear in the second period behind Ja’Dante’ Frye, who matched a career-high with 19 points on 9-11 shooting, and Quinton Thomas, who scored 12 of his 17 points in the second frame. Kevin Hardy’s 14 points topped McNeese, with 11 from Jamaya Burr and 10 apiece by Desharick Guidry and Keelan Garrett. Guidry, the nation’s No. 3 rebounder with an 11.8 average, narrowly missed his 12th double-double of the season by snagging nine missed shots. The Colonels shot 54 percent from the floor and 37.5 percent from beyond the arc on one of their best shooting nights of the season. In contrast, the Bears shot just 34 percent from the floor and 22.2 percent from 3-point range. Nicholls dominated points in the paint (44-24) and finished with more second chance points (12-9), fast break points (12-4), bench points (30-25) and assists (14-9) in the ballgame. The Demons shot 57 percent, 64 percent after taking a 49-35 halftime lead. They sank 10 of 23 (43.5 percent) on 3-pointers and outrebounded the Cowboys by 37-30. HBU shot 57.7 percent and went 17-for-17 from the free throw line in the opening half, while Lamar shot 50 percent and went 5-for-7 from the stripe. Russell led the Huskies with 13 points at the break, while de Lattibeaudiere had 11 for the Cardinals. – Return to Top – The Lumberjacks shot 54.2 percent (26-48) from the field, 38.5 percent (5-13) from deep and 61.1 percent (22-36) from the charity stripe. SFA outscored the Bearkats 36-25 in the paint, 15-13 off turnovers, 25-18 off the bench and 8-5 in the fast break. At that juncture, the visitors found themselves discombobulated on the offensive end, and the Privateers took advantage, rolling off a 14-0 run to close the half. Four of the UNO baskets came off of Islanders turnovers, including the final blow, a three from Brown that cut the deficit to 35-29. Brown scored five of the 14 points, while Hill posted six – four in the paint – during the rally. All nine of UNO’s points off turnovers and all six fast-break points in the stanza came in the final five minutes of action. In the second half, the Wildcats were able to tie the game on three occasions, but were never able to take the lead. The final time they tied the game was on a pair of free throws by LaDarrien Williams with 9:46 remaining. The Cardinals responded with an 11-1 run over the next three minutes capped by a three-pointer by Hittle with 6:54 to play. The Cardinals finished the game strong and pushed the lead to 18 points before ending at the final margin of 16 points. The win was the first on the road in conference play for UIW this year. The Cardinals shot 58.0 percent from the field, made 6-of-13 from three-point range and were 13-of-20 at the foul line. Hittle led the team with 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field.  Denzel Livingston added 17 points and eight rebounds on 6-of-11 shooting. Freshmen Jontrell Walker and Traylin Farris combined for 28 points and 11 rebounds on 10-of-16 shooting.  The team had 11 more rebounds than the Wildcats. The Cowboys scored the game’s first five points, but nine unanswered by Northwestern put the home team up 14-7. The Demons led by double figures much of the opening half, and scored the last seven to go in up by 14. Frye and Q. Thomas led Nicholls offensively with 19 and 17 points respectively, and the pair combined for 10 boards. Carpenter finished with team-highs in rebounds (six) and assists (five), while Q. Thomas and Liam Thomas each had two steals to lead the squad. Four Colonels recorded a block on the night. UIW 77, Abilene Christian 61ABILENE, Texas – An 11-1 second half run propelled the University of the Incarnate Word men’s basketball team to a 77-61 win at Southland Conference rival Abilene Christian University on Saturday at Moody Coliseum. The first half was divided into two starkly different segments. In the first part, A&M-Corpus Christi came out blazing hot from the field, hitting nine of their first 12 shots to open up a 23-4 lead. Douvier was the ringleader, knocking down all three of his shots including a three-pointer to post seven points in the game’s first 8:26. The Islanders eventually pushed the lead to 20 after Douvier’s second triple and a beautiful off-balance layup by Jelani Currie. After the teams traded baskets, the score sat at 35-15 with 5:43 to play in the half. The Colonels shot an abysmal 48.3 percent from the charity stripe overall, but clutch free throw shooting from Q. Thomas down the stretch was instrumental in securing the victory. Q. Thomas went 9-12 from the line, including 8-9 in the second half. Odunsi twice hit one-of-two from the line to put HBU back up by three, but Holliday hit a fadeaway jumper, then Lasher hit a pair of free throws, but Donovan Ross grabbed an offensive rebound for Lamar and laid it back in to make it a one-point game once again with 35 seconds to go. Odunsi put the Huskies up, 77-74, with a pair of free throws with 33 seconds left, then HBU forced a missed jumper by Ross, Stickler grabbed the rebound, was fouled and hit one-of-two for a four-point lead with 19 ticks left. Zjori Bosha missed a three for Lamar and Ibarra grabbed the rebound, which led to Lasher making one-of-two to ice the game. Holliday hit a three at the buzzer to provide the final margin. The Islanders will continue their road trip on Monday with a trip to Hammond, La., to take on Southeastern Louisiana. Game time is set for 7 p.m. at the University Center.  Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 71, New Orleans 67 (OT)NEW ORLEANS, La. – John Jordan’s jumper with 27.8 seconds left in overtime lifted Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to a 71-67 win over New Orleans on Saturday night at Lakefront Arena. Bryce Douvier and Rashawn Thomas each posted double-doubles in the win for the Islanders, who improved to 10-8 on the year (5-1 Southland). The Demons (9-9 overall, 4-3 in the Southland) will go into Monday night’s 6:30 contest in Prather Coliseum against Nicholls on a roll after closing out the Cowboys (7-10, 1-5). Free throws, coming off a combined 55 fouls called, slowed the pace in the second half and allowed Sam Houston to narrow the score. However, SFA’s starts in both halves aided the Lumberjacks in outlasting pushes by the Bearkats in arriving at the 79-68 final and hand Sam Houston its first loss in conference play and at home. Early on, it looked as though the visitors would run away with it, but a tremendous comeback by New Orleans followed. Rallying from a 23-4 deficit, the home squad pushed all the way into the lead in the second half, as a Colton Weisbrod layup put them up two with 9:23 to play. After a Gill jumper, Douvier came through with a big three to cut the lead to one. From there, it was back-and-forth action. Jordan posted 13 points, five assists, six rebounds and three steals in the game. With that, he moved past Michael Hicks into second place on the career scoring list and past Taurean Mitchell into second in career steals as well. Brandon Pye added 11 points for the Islanders, giving the visitors four players in double figures to improve to 5-0 this year in that scenario. Northwestern outscored McNeese 20-1 in points off turnovers, coming up with 12 steals as Killian led with three and West, Woodley, Tra’von Joseph and Devonte Hall each snatched a pair. The Demons swatted nine shots as McNeese managed only 40 percent overall, and just 13 of 38 inside 3-point range. Behind the arc, the Cowboys drained half of their 22 tries. Anthony Holliday went 9-for-14 from the field and 11-for-14 from the line to finish with 30 points, 23 in the second half, for Lamar (10-9, 4-3), while Tyran de Lattibeaudiere had 17 points and six rebounds. LeMon Gregory had eight points and also grabbed six boards. The Cardinals have now defeated the Wildcats in all three of their meetings at the Division I level. UIW is back in action on Monday at home against McNeese State at 7 p.m. – Return to Top – Freshman Ty Charles finished one point off the pace of Walkup, netting 16 points, his most in conference play, on 5-of-12 shooting from the floor and a team-best six rebounds. Junior Clide Geffrard followed Charles with a career-high 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting with a 3-pointer and two free throws, while senior Jacob Parker rounded out the double figure scoring for SFA with 13 points. With the win, the Lumberjacks (16-3, 6-0 SLC) knocked off Sam Houston (14-5, 6-1 SLC) in the battle of unbeatens to pick up their nation-leading 28th straight conference victory. The victory also marks the team’s 15th consecutive overall victory on the season, which sits third in the country. Trailing 66-54 after a free throw by Lasher, Lamar scored eight-straight, the first four by de Lattibeaudiere and the next four by Holliday to get to within four with 5:52 left. Lasher buried a huge three to stop the run, but Gregory came back with a dunk on the other end. The Huskies led 71-64 after Odunsi sank a pair of free throws with 5:06 to go, but Holliday made a pair of free throws, a jumper, then de Lattibeaudiere made a pair from the line to draw the Cardinals within one at 71-70 with 2:56 on the clock. Another Douvier three with 4:59 left put the visitors up one, and a Jordan jumper stretched the lead to three. Gill got UNO back within one on a layup, then the Islanders hit three straight free throws to stretch the lead to four with 44 seconds to play. On the ensuing possession, a fortunate carom went right to Brown in the right corner and he drilled a three to cut the deficit to one with 32.9 seconds remaining. SFA used another quick start at the top of the second half to rebuild a 20-point advantage at 57-37 with 14:09 remaining. Following a made free throw by Bearkats’ Jabari Peters, who finished with 12, Parker knocked down a 3-pointer on the next possession to push the lead to a game-high 22 points. – Return to Top – HBU shot 45.8 percent from the field, 5-for-13 from behind the arc, and 30-for-37 from the line, while Lamar shot 47.3 percent, but only 3-for-17 from 3-point range, and 22-for-27 from the line. The Huskies outrebounded the Cardinals, 31-29, and only committed nine turnovers. The Islanders got the first points out of the locker room, pushing the lead to eight. But UNO came right back with seven in a row, the final two on a layup by Bryce Jackson. From that point, the two teams traded points to a 43-43 score, setting up Weisbrod’s layup and the first lead of the game for the Privateers. – Return to Top – Kevin Hill had 14 points and 11 boards to lead the Privateers, while Nate Frye (14), Kevin Brown (13) and Christavious Gill (10) also finished in double digits for the home squad. The Islanders won the battle of the boards, 40-39, in a hard-fought contest. – Return to Top – On the inbound that followed, Cole Martinez stepped to the line after being fouled and coolly drained a pair of free throws to put the lead at three. Brown then used a head fake to get his defender in the air, drew the foul and hit all three free throws to tie the game and send it to overtime. After a free throw by Holliday cut Lamar’s deficit to five, the Huskies outscored the Cardinals, 13-3 getting a dunk by Stetler, then an alley-oop from Stetler to Vilde and a three-point play by Russell to extend their lead to 15 with 48 seconds left and took a 48-35 lead into halftime. Lamar took a six-point lead on a 3-pointer by Dontavious Sears with 10:31 remaining and still led by five at 27-22 with 7:38 left. Russell then exploded, scoring seven-straight points, capped by a three that put the Huskies up by two with 6:32 to go. The Cardinals got a short jumper by de Lattibeaudiere to tie it, 29-29, but Russell knocked down two free throws and layup by senior center Ricmonds Vilde and Smith put HBU ahead by six with just under four minutes to go. Nicholls will travel to Northwestern State for a 6:30 p.m. matchup on Monday in Natchitoches, before returning home to face Incarnate Word at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 31. Fueling the energy for the Prather Coliseum crowd of 2,712 was a performance by junior point guard Jalan West: 25 points on 9 of 15 overall shooting, including 6 of 9 on 3-pointers; a near triple-double with 8 rebounds and 8 assists; no turnovers, two steals and even a blocked shot in his 31 minutes of play. He helped his No. 4-ranked assists’ average (7.4) with his 10th outing over eight dimes this year, and the 27th of his career. In the extra session, the two teams traded baskets to a 62-62 score, then UNO got the next four points to garner a 66-62 advantage. But the Islanders refused to wilt, as Thomas spun free for a layup to make it 66-64. After getting a stop on the other end, Jordan came up huge, shaking his defender and then drilling a jumper just inside the three-point line to tie the game with 1:27 left. Senior guard Tyler Russell had 16 points and five rebounds, while junior guard Anthony Odunsi had 16 points, going 10-for-14 from the line, four assists and three steals for the Huskies (9-8, 4-3 SLC). Senior guard Marcel Smith added nine off the bench, while sophomore forward Colter Lasher also had nine. Freshman center Josh Ibarra led HBU with eight rebounds. Lamar outscored HBU 8-1 over the first 3:13 of the second half to quickly slice the Huskies lead to six. Leading by seven, HBU got back-to-back triples from junior guard Jourdan Stickler and Smith to once again lead by 13 with 11:23 remaining. The Cardinals trailed by 10 after Sears hit a pair of free throws with just under 10 minutes to go, but Russell answered with another trey to make the score, 65-52. Nicholls 71, Central Arkansas 61CONWAY, Ark. – The Nicholls State University men’s basketball team dug deep and used a gritty second-half performance to earn their first road victory of the season as the squad powered past Central Arkansas 71-61, on Saturday night in Conway.

Contaminant discovered in well water

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Perchlorate in high doses has been connected to thyroid problems. One part per billion is roughly the volume of one grain of sand in an Olympic-size swimming pool. The well, which taps into the deep Saugus Aquifer, is located within 1,000 feet of another well that was capped due to perchlorate contamination in 1998. Decades of munitions testing and manufacturing at the 996-acre Whittaker-Bermite property north of Soledad Canyon Road has left a chemical plume in the aquifer – one of Santa Clarita Valley’s prime water sources. Eight water wells – including NC-13 – have tested positive for perchlorate. Though officials are unsure about the exact size of the plume, studies by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers suggest it is moving west and northwest, Diaz said. Officials with Whittaker Corp., which is charged with decontaminating the property, did not return calls for comment Monday. But Cole said the company will pay for the construction of a monitoring well between NC-13 and the Bermite property. NEWHALL – Trace amounts of perchlorate, a component of rocket fuel, have been discovered in a Newhall County Water District well near the contaminated Whittaker-Bermite site. Routine tests conducted several months ago detected presence of the chemical at well NC-13, located near the Circle J Ranch subdivision and Oakdale Canyon. The district continues to operate the well, but will conduct further tests and analyses, said General Manager Steve Cole. The amount of perchlorate found was minimal – from undetectable to up to 1.9 parts per billion, he said. State standards requiring agencies to report the presence of perchlorate is about 4 parts per billion, while the state recommended level for safe drinking water is about 6 parts per billion. “It was detected at a very low concentration,” Jose Diaz, project manager with the state Department of Toxic Substances Control overseeing cleanup at Whittaker-Bermite, said Monday. “We’re doing investigations in the general vicinity of that well to determine where the plume extends.” “They will be able to pull samples from those special zones as far as what effects it has on our wells in case of increase concentration,” he said. “It’ll give us data in overall risks that’s out there.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Law Enforcement Firearms Fatalities Spike 78 Percent in First Half of 2016

first_imgToday the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund issued a new report with preliminary data through July 20, 2016, revealing that 67 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty in 2016—an eight percent increase over the same period last year (62)..Key FactsFirearms-related fatalities (32) spiked 78 percent in the first half of this year from 18 during the same period last year. Of particular concern, ambush-style killings of law enforcement officers have dramatically increased more than 300 percent from the same period in 2015. Fourteen officers were shot and killed in ambushes, seven officers were killed stopping a suspicious person and five officers were killed while executing a tactical arrest or high-risk warrants. Additional circumstances are included in the 2016 Mid-Year Law Enforcement Officer Fatalities Report.Traffic-related incidents were the second leading cause of officer fatalities, with 24 officers killed during the reporting period—a 17 percent decrease over the same period last year (29). Thirteen officers were killed in automobile crashes involving another vehicle; five officers were struck while outside of their vehicle; four officers were killed in motorcycle crashes and two officers were killed in single-vehicle crashes. The two single-vehicle crashes are a 78 percent decrease from nine during the same period last year—an early indication that progress is being made reducing these preventable deaths.- Sponsor – Eleven officers died due to other causes such as job-related illnesses in the first half of 2016, compared to 16 officer deaths during the same time last year—a 31 percent decrease. Heart attacks were the cause of six officer deaths, two officers fell to their death, one officer died in an aircraft crash, one officer was beaten to death and one officer drowned.Texas led all states with 13 officer fatalities; followed by Louisiana with seven officer deaths. California, Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio and Virginia all lost three officers thus far in 2016. The Memorial Fund is currently constructing the National Law Enforcement Museum, which will help bridge the gap between law enforcement and the communities they serve. The Museum currently hosts discussions and free programming designed to educate the public about law enforcement policies and tactics. When the Museum opens in 2018, it will tackle tough issues our country faces with open dialog amongst law enforcement, civic leaders and the citizenry. Supporting Quote:“Each day some 900,000 men and women work to keep our communities safe, and we owe each of them a debt of gratitude,” declared NLEOMF President and CEO Craig W. Floyd. “All American citizens should be outraged at the number of officers who have been targeted, shot and killed this year. The brutal assassinations of law enforcement officers in Texas and Louisiana shocked our nation and we saw similar ambush attacks on officers in other parts of the country earlier this year. Public safety is a partnership. Thankfully, the vast majority of Americans clearly support and appreciate the vital role law enforcement plays in our society. So, now is the time for all law-abiding citizens to partner with law enforcement in support of safe communities.”A copy of the full report, “2016 Mid-Year Law Enforcement Officer Fatalities Report,” is available at www.LawMemorial.org/FatalitiesReport.

I will not miss out through injury.”Reus revealed he has always remained in “close contact” with Low, who will announce a preliminary squad on May 15.”We stay in regular contact of course, particularly because of my injury,” he added.”We message each other and speak on the phone to discuss my progress and other matters. We’re in close contact.”Three goals in three games – Marco Reus is on FIRE! @BVB #DieMannschaft pic.twitter.com/aIZcK4CzCP— Germany (@DFB_Team_EN) March 3, 2018While his short-term future is focussed on finishing the season strongly and, hopefully, making it to the World Cup, Reus admits his latest lengthy absence gave him time to reflect on his future after football.”I think it’s very important that you don’t start thinking about your life after football when you are 33 or 34,” the former Borussia Monchengladbach player said.”There are many more amazing things in this world and it’s important to think about these things before you retire.”It’s difficult for every single player in my opinion because there is such a big hole to fill. The level of fame is no longer there and people are much less interested in you.”That’s actually a good thing because it allows you to do those things that you perhaps were not able to before. I think it’s important to be thinking about your personal life and your family not just when you’ve retired but also during your career.”last_img read more
