NCAA sets new schedule for early draft entrants to withdraw

first_imgNCAA sets new schedule for early draft entrants to withdraw Experts say the first leg on Feb. 19 in Milan was one of the biggest reasons why the virus was so deadly in Atalanta’s home city of Bergamo. The match has been dubbed “Game Zero” by Italian media.___Seven Arkansas State athletes have tested positive for COVID-19 and are self-isolating for 14 days.Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said the seven athletes are from three sports, and all were asymptomatic Thursday. They learned of the positive results Wednesday night.The athletes who tested positive and are living off campus will self-isolate there or at home for 14 days. Those living on campus will self-isolate in their residence hall or at home for 14 days. Schalke has been hit hard financially by the pandemic. Executive board member Alexander Jobst said in March the club faced an existential threat.The team has also struggled on the field and hasn’t won a league game since January.___More AP sports: and,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6 “We’ve had a couple others that have had symptoms, without testing positive that we know of,” Kovan said.Michigan State athletes can begin returning to campus June 15 in preparation for voluntary workouts. Football, basketball and volleyball players will be the first to undergo testing.After testing, athletes will be instructed to self-isolate for a week, and those testing positive will be quarantined for 10 days. On June 22, athletes who initially tested negative will be given a second round of testing. Athletes who receive a second negative test will be cleared to begin voluntary workouts. They will be split into small workout groups based on people they live with.“The intent is that if we keep our volume, our number of athletes together in a small set, and their strength coach works with just that group when they work out, and somebody in that group is positive, then we can isolate that individual group as opposed to the whole team,” Kovan said.Common areas like locker rooms and lounges will remain closed. Athletes will be given masks and required to wear them while in facilities, except during workouts. Olympic operations director Pierre Ducrey says there is “an open discussion” between the IOC and insurance brokers “to try and find the right level of compensation to help us bear the cost of having to wait another year.”The IOC pays for insurance against the cancellation of an Olympics but it is unclear if its policy covers a one-year postponement.Cancellation policies detailed in IOC accounts cost $14.4 million for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics and $12.8 million for the 2018 Pyeongchang Games.The IOC said last month it set aside $650 million to cover potential extra costs for the postponement.Costs for organizers in Japan are expected to run to billions of dollars.

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini says the reaction from Champions League opponent Valencia after he acknowledged testing positive for the coronavirus is “really very offensive.”Valencia expressed “surprise” and a top health official in the Spanish region said Gasperini “lacked responsibility” for traveling to Spain with symptoms of the virus. He recently told Italian media he felt sick the day before the March 10 match in Valencia.Gasperini tells Sky Italia, “I know that I respected the protocols. I was in quarantine like everyone else until training resumed. I never had a test. It was only in May when (the entire team) had blood tests that I realized that I had had the virus.”Valencia said after the March 10 game that about 35% of its team had the virus.Gasperini adds, “Looking back, I think that was the period when I didn’t feel well. But I never had a fever or any sort of respiratory problems. When I left from Bergamo I felt fine. I had some problems that evening and the day after (the match).” The NCAA announced Thursday that it would give players until 10 days after the NBA scouting combine or Aug. 3, whichever comes earlier. This comes three weeks after the NCAA postponed its deadline, which was originally scheduled to fall on Wednesday.That June 3 deadline was set to come 10 days after the completion of the combine, but the NBA postponed the combine amid the coronavirus pandemic and has yet to announce a new date.In a statement, the NCAA said the Division I Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee worked with the National Association of Basketball Coaches on the new timeline and “believes this is the most equitable alternative available in these unprecedented circumstances.”“This provides the utmost flexibility to student-athletes testing the waters to make the most informed decision about their future during this uncertain time,” NCAA Senior Vice President for Basketball Dan Gavitt said in the statement.___center_img English soccer club Tottenham says it is expecting to lose more than $250 million in revenue with Premier League matches being played without fans and its stadium no longer being used for two NFL games this year.Tottenham’s stadium opened last year and can hold more than 60,000 people.

Ighalo Scores as Man United Qualify for FA Cup Semis

first_imgThe game turned on the dismissal of substitute Timm Klose in the 89th minute. Norwich were in the ascendancy after equalising and looked favourites to snatch a late winner before the German was shown a straight red for pulling back Ighalo.The video assistant referee checked Jon Moss’ decision and confirmed it within seconds.Neither side particularly impressed in attack, although both goals in normal time were of high quality.The first was scored by Ighalo, who continued his good run in cup competitions with a flicked effort with the outside of his boot in the 51st minute.The second goal was even better. Todd Cantwell, Norwich’s best player in attack at Carrow Road, let fly from 25 yards with a low swerving shot that beat the reach of Sergio Romero.Norwich will now focus on their increasingly difficult task of beating the drop from the Premier League. As for United, this was a patchy display but they remain in contention in two cup competitions and for a top-four spot in the league.A third semi-final in the past five seasons, but perhaps this match further highlighted United’s need to strengthen the squad.Solksjaer, apart from one change, faithfully stuck to the XI that got United to this stage. However the attacking display they produced for much of the match was, at best, tepid.Without Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford from the start, they lacked the pace and guile needed to get behind a Norwich defence that was well protected by the defensive midfield work of Alex Tettey.The statistics read ‘no shots on target’ in the opening 45 minutes – six minutes after the break that became one shot on target and one goal. If Solskjaer did give a 2020 update of the ‘hairdryer treatment’ then it certainly worked.Left-back Luke Shaw, one of those players below par in the opening period, drove behind the Canaries backline and fired in a cross that was played by Juan Mata into the path of Ighalo, who produced a clever finish. That was the Nigerian loan signing’s fifth goal in just five cup competition matches for United.But instead of building on that advantage, United retreated into their shell again allowing Norwich to get back into the game.Thankfully for the visitors, the cup gods were smiling down on them when Klose was sent off and, having a stronger bench to call on, it seemed inevitable United would break Norwich resistance.Krul did his best to keep them at bay, saving from Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford – three of United’s six substitutes – before remarkably clawing Maguire’s header off the line.But with two minutes of extra-time remaining, United finally wore their opponents down when Maguire pounced to hooked home.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Odion Ighalo was on target yesterday as Manchester United defeated 10-man Norwich City 2-1 after extra-time to progress into the Emirates FA Cup semi-final.It was Ighalo’s third goal in his second appearance in the FA Cup for United this season. The Nigerian striker broke the deadlock in the 51st minute, stabbing the ball past Tim Krul from close range after Luke Shaw’s cross was deflected towards him.United captain Harry Maguire scored deep into extra-time as Manchester United overcame valiant 10-man Norwich to reach the FA Cup semi-finals. The England defender, who moments earlier had a header brilliantly saved by Tim Krul, reacted sharply to turn in the loose ball at the far post.last_img read more

USG to propose increase to student programming fee

first_imgThe Undergraduate Student Government is suggesting a $1 increase to the student programming fee to make up for miscommunication between treasurers and also to keep up with rising costs. If approved, the student programming fee will total $56.50 per semester, and USG will add an additional $30,000 to its budget.USG has surveyed student interest and determined that an increase to the programming fee, which students pay every semester, will help it better serve students, President Holden Slusher said. The fee increase must be approved by Student Affairs and the Board of Trustees before it is enacted.USG found itself shortchanged this year because of miscommunication that arose the last time they proposed a fee increase in 2008.The proposed 50 cent increase was approved by Student Affairs, and, as USG budgeted for the 2008-2009 school year, they included the extra 50 cents. The trustees vetoed the budget, however, and the veto was not communicated properly to USG. USG was surprised to learn they would not have the $15,000 extra they had anticipated, and, because of the communication issue, Student Affairs chose to compensate USG.But in 2009, the outgoing treasurer did not adequately communicate the situation to current treasurer Ashwin Appiah. USG drew up their budget and included the extra $15,000 that Student Affairs had provided to compensate for the previous year’s error, only to find out that the $15,000 payment was a one-time compensation.To avoid this kind of mistake in the future, Slusher told Appiah to be cautious.“This year, we lost $15,000 but, because of mandatory university policies, we had to give all of our staff … a 3 percent pay raise, so it’s like ‘great, that money comes out of programming or somewhere else,’” Slusher said. “We’d have to get really creative and I think it’s something we’ve already done. And sometimes it’s really hard.”With the $1 increase, USG hopes to offset costs and to continue offering the quality of programs they do now.USG was not particularly hindered by the missing $15,000 this year, Slusher said, because supplemental funding accrued when more students enrolled than expected, thus allowing USG to collect more programming fees.Still, the situation was not ideal.“We had to adjust to operate like normal,” Slusher said.A survey sent out in November asked students if they would be willing to increase the programming fee, and one question asked if they would be willing to pay more for “bigger and better talent,” according to Appiah.“The overwhelming response was ‘yes, we would like an increase,’” Appiah said. “I saw that the increase was more than a dollar, so a lot of people would want an increase in the student programming fee for bigger and better events.”Helena Wichova, a junior majoring in biomedical engineering, said she agrees an increase would be good if used in the right ways.“I’m not really sure where USG is putting their money,” Wichova said. “Although I’m sure I’m benefiting from some of the programs that it funds.”Sean Perry, a junior majoring in economics and mathematics, also said he agrees that an increase in the programming fee would be beneficial.“I think it’s a good idea if they have a lot of money to do a lot of good things,” Perry said. “I know other schools have to pay more because the students get bigger name artists to perform. USC seems like it’s a little bit below the other schools.”Click here for an extended interview with USG’s Ashwin Appiah.last_img read more

Wellington basketball teams split against Augusta on homecoming night

first_imgFollow us on Twitter. Augusta — K. Wesbrooks 9, N. Becker 6, M. Kirk 4, C. Dalziel 4, B. Carr 3, R. Zerr 2, B. Johnston 1, K. McDaniel 1 Wellington — L. Snipes 22, P. Adams 9, T. French 6, T. Zimmerman 5, A. Rusk 5 Augusta43914—30 Wellington1241214—42 Augusta 55 Wellington 42 by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Friday night’s homecoming was a bit of a mixed bag for the Crusader basketball teams. Wellington girls picked up a win over Augusta 47-30. The boys were not as fortunate losing 55-42.Wellington girls continued their hot streak, winning their fourth straight and sixth out of seventh game. After getting off to a 2-5 start, the Lady Dukes are now 8-6.“Augusta is the kind of team that will grind it out against you,” said Eric Adams, Wellington head girls basketball coach. “They are well coached and play great defense. Our girls were mad afterwards they didn’t play better, but I’ll take a 17-point win over that team anyday.” While Wellington did not set the world on fire offensively Friday night, it most certainly created an inferno defensively.Augusta had just one field goal in the first half and three field goals after three quarters. Augusta would have just six field goals for the game, three coming late.“Anytime you hold a team to one field goal in the first half, you are doing something right,” Adams said.Lauryn Snipes is emerging into a premiere basketball star for the Crusaders. She scored 22 points against the Orioles. In her past three games she has scored 19, 27 and 22 points.Augusta could be considered a trap game for the Dukes after pulling off the 51-50 upset against Buhler and looking ahead to the hugely important game against Winfield Tuesday. Of course, it was homecoming, giving the Wellington girls plenty of opportunities to be sidetracked.“We were on the girls pretty hard in practice on Tuesday and Wednesday,” Adams said. “We didn’t want them to take this game for granted. We wanted them to know they haven’t accomplished anything yet.”It looked like a teeth grinder early. Wellington led 9-4 at the end of one quarter, but Wellington was clearly not shooting well.In the second quarter, Wellington opened up a 23-7 lead. Augusta never scored until about 3 minutes left in the quarter with a free throw. Snipes ended the half with a layup at the buzzer and a missed free throw thereafter.The Crusaders would never sprint away in this contest but would slowly run away as if running a marathon in the third quarter. Eventually Wellington was in front by 19 points. Augusta had a run in which it hit two treys and two free throws on three consecutive possessions midway through the fourth quarter, but this game was never in doubt.Wellington will now battle Winfield in a non-league game next Tuesday there. This is big for two reasons. Winfield is 7-6 and Wellington is 8-6 and the No. 1 seed in the Winfield sub-state is up for grabs.It is also big because it will probably serve as a preview of what could be the sub-state championship between these evenly matched teams. Augusta11151712—55center_img •••••Wellington boys bummerThe Crusader boys had an enthusiastic crowd to back it up, but they were unable to transfer that energy to points on the hardwood.Augusta scored six three-pointers and nab a bushel of more rebounds in its 55-42 victory. The Crusaders fall to 8-7 with a date at Winfield Tuesday.Dustin McEachern scored 16 points for Augusta that included three 3-pointers in the first half.Wellington led 12-11 at the end of the first quarter, before enduring one of its worst quarters of the season. Augusta went on a 15-4 second quarter run and led 26-16 at the half.It didn’t get much better in the third quarter. After Trevor Nance opened the second half with two field goals to narrow the margin to six, Augusta doubled that lead right back and pulled away from there.Nance led the Dukes with 21 points accounting for 50 percent of Wellington’s points.

Tigers aiming to reduce errors in vital Muruks clash

first_imgThey will not want a repeat of last week with little things that cost them the game. Gurias won by 4 points, courtesy of successful penalty and conversion kicks. Tigers play PRK Mendi Muruks in a semi-final (elimination) at 3pm.Coach Stanley Tepend reminded the boys soon after the loss on Sunday that it was important to keep cool and be in control of the game.  He told them to stay focused for the final shot today.Former Kumuls/Hunters player David Loko has been Tigers’ trusted man with a style of play that won the crowd’s hearts. He will be supported in the forwards by able runners in former Kumuls Roy Kela, captain Sydney Fred and lock Ismael Balkawa.Tigers’ mobile back-line should cause some headaches for the visitors if they are not careful. Tigers had a good year, finishing on top of the table in the Eastern pool during season proper and continued the form during the crossover. Both sides defeated each other during their home games this year. Claiming the back to back minor premiership tag, many will show up at Lae League to cheer, hoping that the Lae Biscuit Company sponsored side have done their work during the week in preparations.last_img read more
