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.

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

Man Delivering Amazon Package Steals Puppy Gets Caught By App

Pislea, who made a court appearance today, was found guilty of fabricating the truth and failing to return the dog to its owner.Former ‘Amazon delivery driver’ found guilty of stealing customer’s dog – CPS Thames & ChilternLevi Pislea given 12 month community order and ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work, plus £705 costs following trial at High Wycombe Magistrates’ CourtMORE: https://t.co/iV28BDcOSr— CPS (@cpsuk) February 20, 2019AdChoices广告On April 27, Richard Guttfield, Wilma’s owner, discovered that his fur baby was missing from his home in Marsworth, England, according to Court News UK. Once he figured out that Wilma disappeared when his Amazon package arrived, he immediately contacted Amazon about the incident.When Pislea was questioned by his manager about the missing puppy, he denied seeing Wilma on his delivery route. However, an app unveiled that he was not telling the truth: It tracked his steps on April 27, and showed that he went around Guttfield’s home and into the garden area.Pislea’s manager then went to Pislea’s home, where he found the dog and reported Pislea to the police. Four days after the incident, Wilma was finally reunited with Guttfield.Pislea though, didn’t walk out of his trial without charges: The High Wycombe Magistrates Court sentenced him to a 12-month community order, 150 hours of unpaid work, and he has to pay $914 in damages.“Pislea lied when he said he hadn’t been near the garden where the dog was — a lie that was proven by the tracker data of his steps,” Andrew Morgan, district crown prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), said in a CPS press release. “He denied any knowledge of the dog when he was directly asked about it, and made no effort to reunite it with its owner over the four days that it was in his possession, all of which indicated his intention to keep it.”More on Geek.com:Amazon Pledges to Make Half Its Shipments Carbon Neutral by 2030‘Costume Quest’ Animated Series Will Hit Amazon Prime Video on March 8Amazon Teases ‘Middle-earth Map’ for Its New ‘Lord of the Rings’ Serieslast_img read more
