No. 4 Sam Houston State Earns Semifinals Spot, Defeats No. 5 Privateers 85-63

first_imgBox Score | Photo Gallery | ESPN3 Replay | HighlightsKATY, Texas – Josh Delaney helped take down the defending Southland Conference Men’s Tournament champion while almost taking down a long-held tourney record for three-point marksmanship.Sam Houston State’s junior guard knocked down seven treys as the Bearkats eliminated New Orleans 85-63 at the Merrell Center on Thursday, advancing to the tournament semifinals for a sixth straight season. Delaney had a chance to at least tie Marcus Anthony’s Southland Tournament record of eight thrree-pointers but finished his night well after the Bearkats had sewn up the victory.“I’d probably say after I saw the third one go in,” said Delaney about when he began to feel his hot hand from beyond the arc. “I kept it going at the start of the second half and that’s when my teammates started getting the ball to me.”Delaney, who finished seventh in the conference in three-point percentage (.402), helped Sam Houston State shoot 52 percent from long range as he finished the night with 25 points and five rebounds.MBB 2nd Round: Easy choice for ESPN crew. @BearkatsMBB Josh Delaney is #SouthlandStrong Player of the Game. SHSU advances to semifinal round. #EatEmUpKats pic.twitter.com/1wJh6bcyTn— Southland Conference (@SouthlandSports) March 9, 2018With the win, the fourth seeded Bearkats (19-13) advance to face top seed Southeastern Louisiana at 5 p.m. CT on Friday, with the winner playing in Saturday night’s championship game.“Our guys played great tonight,” said Sam Houston coach Jason Hooten. “They were ready to go, they were focused and locked in, but, of course, when you have a guy make seven threes and gets out to a good start like he did, it makes winning a lot easier.”On a night where all-conference first team pick Chris Galbreath was held to seven points on 3-for-11 shooting, the presence of Delaney put the Bearkats’ depth on display. Guard John Dewey III added 14 points and five assists while helping to limit New Orleans to just 42 percent shooting.New Orleans (15-16) shot 52 percent from the field in the first half but managed just one three-pointer while Sam Houston State drilled seven treys. “We couldn’t get stops,” said Privateers guard Lamont Berzat, who scored nine points. “We were clicking offensively but we couldn’t get it done on the other end.”Almost as devastating as Delaney’s long-range artistry was the Privateers’ inability to establish themselves on the glass. Sam Houston State outrebounded them by a 21-9 margin in the first half with the Bearkats pulled down nine boards on the offensive end of the court.The Privateers were outrebounded by a combined 45-23, with the Bearkats finishing with 17 rebounds on the offensive glass, allowing them to outscore a larger New Orleans team 32-20 in the paint while also getting 13 second chance points.Thursday was also the biggest margin of victory by a Sam Houston State team in their opening round game in the Southland Conference Tournament since the Bearkats defeated McNeese 88-70 in the first round in 2005.MBB: Winning is fun. @BearkatsMBB into the semifinals.SHSU vs. top seed @SLU_Hoops 5 o’clock Friday at @MerrellCenter.#SouthlandStrong pic.twitter.com/T0XdwNcKym— Southland Conference (@SouthlandSports) March 9, 2018New Orleans (15-16) led 3-2 early in the contest yet never saw it again after Delaney’s first trifecta of the evening put Sam Houston State up to stay with 16:11 to go in the first half. The Privateers were able to push within 10-8, but a 9-2 run by the Bearkats extended their lead to 19-10.Unable to counter Sam Houston State’s long-range accuracy, New Orleans continued to fall behind and were down 50-32 at intermission. The Bearkats led by as much as 26 in the second half and were able to bring in their reserves down the stretch.Despite the loss, New Orleans coach Mark Slessinger felt good about not only his team’s effort to keep playing hard but also what lies ahead for the program after reaching the NCAA Tournament last year.“Culture doesn’t graduate,” he said. “Players do but culture doesn’t. I’m excited and elated about what next year has for us.”last_img read more

Prem clubs to scrap early summer transfer deadline as Big Six push for U-turn

Prem clubs to scrap early summer transfer deadline as Big Six push for U-turn

first_imgPREMIER LEAGUE clubs will today scrap the early summer transfer deadline after two years.But the decision tees up a potential battle between the Big Six and the league’s smaller clubs over new deadline rules.1 Spurs chief Levy has been among those pushing for the switchCredit: ReutersLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy have led complaints that closing the window more than three weeks before most of Europe shut up shop put English clubs at a huge disadvantage.Spurs were destabilised by the long-running questions over Christian Eriksen’s future through most of August, while Manchester United had to deal with Real Madrid’s pursuit of Paul Pogba.With the Prem window having shut on August 8, clubs risked losing players to continental rivals for 24 days without being able to replace them.But with no consensus at the “shareholder” meetings of the 20 clubs, the final decision was put back until today’s gathering.In the meantime, a third “hybrid” option, which would see TWO deadlines, had been mooted.Under this plan, there would still be an early deadline on the Thursday before the season started for deals between Premier League sides.But clubs would still be allowed to do deals with European sides and EFL outfits up until the closure of the global window. It was thought the hybrid plan was gaining traction.SunSport, however, can reveal that the Big Six plan to vote as a bloc to revert to the old rules and a single deadline, which will be on September 1 this year, because the August Bank Holiday Monday falls the previous day.That, though, could result in a spat between the six wealthiest clubs in English football and a majority of the lesser sides, who are thought to want the hybrid plan. League chief executive Richard Masters is taking a “neutral” position.He did, however, concede: “It may be that this summer is the last window where freedom of movement is possible.“So clubs may want to have a longer window to make sure that they’ve taken full advantage.”Clubs will first vote on whether the current window deadline should be changed, with a strong majority in favour.MAKE YOUR DEBUT Bet £5 get £20 in free bets for new customers at Ladbrokesmost read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himThere will then be a second vote on the two options, with a simple majority required for the new dates to be adopted. Today’s meeting will also see discussions on VAR and the issue of work permits for non-English players following Brexit.Masters added: “We want the Premier League to still bring the best players from around the world, and we want the system to be able to provide better quality players for the England team.“Change is coming because we’re leaving the European Union and by the end of this year we’ll need a new immigration system in place that deals with it. But we don’t necessarily believe quotas are the answer.”Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta couldn’t be happier with new signings Pablo Mari and Cedric Soareslast_img read more

Bale puts an end to his ‘medical veto’ just one year later

first_imgAt the time, the end suffered a grade 1 lesion in the left soleus, but far from it has been his only physical problem in 2019. Last October, the Chiringuito reported that Bale had asked Real Madrid not to publish his health status, based on the principle of confidentiality between doctor and patient. In this way, The Welshman was still unsubscribed without filtering the exact extent of his ailments. Now, that agreement has been broken between the parties to report the infection that Bale suffers and that will make him miss the Spanish Super Cup or, at least, the semifinal against Valencia. The reasons that caused this sudden change are unknown and if it will continue over time or, on the contrary, It will be anecdotal because it is a special competition, a long trip and a setback that does not affect your physical condition but an infection Of another character. Be that as it may, the attacker now suffers his 26th setback with Madrid and will not be present in the dispute of the first title of 2020 … In this way, the entity respected the decision of its footballer and, since then, he had not given any information about Bale’s physique. Last october some discomfort in the left floor had two games away from the pitch. In December, a edema in the left femoral biceps It also temporarily removed him from the group’s dynamics. On none of both occasions was anything known beyond that commented by Zinedine Zidane in the press room.center_img Gareth Bale will not travel to Saudi Arabia to dispute the Spanish Super Cup when he suffers an upper respiratory infection, as reported by Real Madrid in the medical part published on its website. The news has fallen by surprise, not only because of the unexpected decline of Welsh, but because the fact of publicly informing about your physical state, something that didn’t happen for exactly one year. Bale has broken his ‘medical veto’, although it is unknown if it is due to a disease and not because of a muscular problem or if, on the contrary, it will last over time.last_img read more

Deivid: “When they eliminate you there is nothing positive to take out”

Deivid: “When they eliminate you there is nothing positive to take out”

first_imgThe Gran Canaria defender Deivid returned in Copa del Rey to the title in which he was his 100th game as a yellow player, but falling 2-1 to Badajoz in the New Nursery and being eliminated was “A hard defeat”, because “for those of us who don’t play, the competition was good for us; It is a pride to have been able to play the match 100 as yellow, but it is an anecdote because it is a hard day because we had hopes placed in the Cup and the first part has been unfortunate. ” The defender of the grancanarios understands that “the first part is not a receipt for a professional club like ours, it is a shame”. In the second “we have tried and we have shown that we are a good team, but it has not given us to force the extension”, being clear that “if you do not match the intensity of the opponent does not give you to win against any team.” He did not deny that the Extremaduran team “We won all duels and a team like us can’t afford that.” Admit that “when they eliminate you there is nothing positive to be able to take out,” so he thinks that “Many of us have given the reason to the Mr.” with the performance shown in Badajoz. From now on “we will have to break our heads to enter the calls in the League.”The anecdote of the game, in the time of extension, came by the penalty and expulsion of the Josep goal, which led to it was Deivid whoever put on the gloves, lucky enough to stop it, although then the referee whistled the end. “The penalty was doubtful, but there are no excuses. The pity is that stopping it was useless because it was the end. A professional team cannot afford the first part we have done because they paint your face. We have wanted him in the second, but we have not put them. ”last_img read more

Two deputies from Unidos Podemos fall asleep during Rufián’s intervention in Congress

first_imgThe deputies of En Comú Podem Raimundo Viejo and Mar García Puig Rufián was asking a question about Defense to Cospedal The ERC spokesman called on Defense Minister Dolores de Cospedal to ask citizens without resources “to eat bullets and sleep in tanks” by asking the following question: “Do you think, in a State with 750,000 families without income? , 800,000 people without health care, 32% of child poverty, 500.00 evictions in the last six years, 13 million poor, reduce military spending that between actual and camouflaged figures reaches 17,465 million euros? “. Cospedal gave him an equally “short and simple: no” answer. Rufián told him then: “Now go out and tell the people to eat bullets and sleep in tanks.” “I understand that in this area, as in many others, demagogy is a very comfortable resource,” said Cospedal, and also “that there are times when the situation forces us to reaffirm the obvious.” It was at the end of one of those two exchanges of words of Rufián with Cospedal when one of the cameras that retransmitted the session captured the deputies of En Comú Podem, the Catalan electoral alliance within Unidos Podemos, Rayford Viejo and Mar García Puig thrown towards back in his seat with his eyes closed in a clear attitude of repose.
