SCOTTSBORO, Ala. (AP) — A funeral has been held for Sheila Washington, founder of the Scottsboro Boys Museum and Cultural Center in Alabama. The museum is dedicated to exploring the racial injustice committed against nine young African-Americans falsely accused of raping two white women in 1930s Alabama. Washington died Jan. 29 at age 61 and her funeral was held Saturday. She opened the Scottsboro, Alabama, museum in 2010. It sheds light on the case of the nine young Blacks who faced all-white juries. All but the youngest defendant were sentenced to death. Five of the men’s convictions were overturned in 1937 and all were ultimately freed and exonerated.

The 18-year-old has an impressive stat line. However, he did finish the game shootings just 6-of-17 from the field and missed all five of his long-range attempts. LaMelo Ball also tied Josh Boone for a team-worst plus-minus of negative-17. It seemed that Ball had multiple chances to take the lead in the fourth before Brisbane eventually put the game to an end with its own run in the final minutes.

Back in 2016, during Chino Hills High School’s 47th straight win, Ball called his shot from halfcourt then calmly drained it as part of a 65-point performance against Foothill in the Rancho Mirage Holiday Invitational. In 2018, during the Junior Ball Association international tour, Ball again went viral when he put his defender on the floor, as his ankle-breaking move sent the crowd into a frenzy. Bhavya Sukheja The youngest son of LaVar Ball, LaMelo Ball has become a new social media sensation after playing his debut match and becoming the first NBL player in history to have a double-double with five assists and no turnovers. Ball reportedly opted to play overseas in New Zealand instead of attempting to get eligible for the 2019-20 college basketball season. He is also a potential top pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. On October 06, he played his first regular-season game with the Illawarra Hawks against the Brisbane Bullets and finished the night with a stat line of 12 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, and four steals.

Former Black Stars forward and now assistant coach of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Ibrahim Tanko has declared his intention of joining the technical team of the Black Stars only as head coach not as an assistant.This revelation comes as the Ghana FA made an official statement last Friday that its outfit and the Black Stars coach James Kwesi Appiah had agreed to mutually part ways therefore making the position vacant.Reports in the media are that apart from the assistant coach Maxwell Konadu the rest of the technical staff will follow suit and it is believed Konadu will be named as substantive coach anytime soon.Tanko has been linked to the Black Stars assistant coach job due to his commitment exhibited since he joined the four times African champions, Cameroon.But in an exclusive interview with Asempa Sports, the former Borussia Dortmund player says he will only accept an offer from the Ghana FA as head coach of the Black Stars.“I will not join the Black Stars coaching staff as assistant but head coach rather because if I look at those who are applying for the job at the moment then nothing prevents me from applying for the top most one”. “Anyway, am very happy with where the Cameroonian national team has gotten me into. Although is in my plan that as a coach I will come back home one day to serve my motherland”“The coach am working with is one of the best so am not sure that if any country approach me to assist now, I don’t think I will be able to do so just because I know what am getting from Volker Finke”. He addedTanko joined the Cameroon national team in June 2013 following the appointment of the German tactician, Volker Finke and was also appointed as a scout for Ghana at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations
