Box Score | Photo Gallery | ESPN3 ReplayKATY, Texas – Keith Charleston scored five of his 15 points during a 13-2 run late in the second half that gave No. 1 Southeastern Louisiana an 89-79 win over No. 4 Sam Houston State Friday evening at the Merrell Center, moving the Lions into Saturday night’s championship game.Southeastern Louisiana (22-10) will play the winner of Friday’s late game between second seeded Nicholls and third seed Stephen F. Austin at 8 p.m. CT on Saturday on ESPN2.“I just let it come to me,” said Charleston, whose three-pointer with 1:33 remaining gave the Lions a 79-71 lead. “Marlain (Veal) is a good player, drew two people to him, he found me and I knocked it down.”MBB Semifinal: Charleston now in double figures for @SLU_Hoops, hitting the long-range shot.

It’s a quick turnaround, but we’re excited about playing for the championship.” Veal helped seal the deal for Southeastern by connecting on all four of his free throws in the final 47 seconds, finishing the night with a game-high 29 points that was highlighted by his perfect 14-for-14 from the free throw line, becoming only the fourth player in Southland Conference Tournament history — and first since 2004 — to achieve perfection from the stripe with at least 12 attempts.Six of his free throws came at the 7:00 mark of the second half when a pair of technical fouls against Sam Houston State (19-14) following a foul that originally sent him to the line turned what was a 63-62 lead for the Bearkats into a 68-63 lead the Lions would not relinquish.“At that point in time, even though we had a one-point lead, we were having a hard time stopping them,” said Sam Houston State coach Jason Hooten. “Did the tide change? I think the tide had already been changing.”The Bearkats were unable to duplicate the shooting touch they had in Thursday’s win over New Orleans, shooting just 44. 8 percent from the field. Josh Delaney, who hit six three-pointers on Thursday, was only 2-for-8 from beyond the arc, finishing with 13 points. All-conference first teamer Chris Galbreath finished with 11 points yet was 4-for-11 from the field and fell into foul trouble that limited him to only 24 minutes.Still, Sam Houston overcame a 26-10 first half deficit behind a bench that delivered 34 points. Jamal Williams had 13 points and five rebounds while Cameron Delaney went 3-for-4 from three-point range and finished with 11 points. Abrian Edwards added eight points and four boards in 18 minutes.The Bearkats took a 42-41 lead on a dunk from Galbreath with 16:22 remaining and held a 52-48 advantage at the 12:44 mark. The teams traded the lead before Veal’s half-dozen free throws allowed the Lions to begin pulling away. Sam Houston State closed to 70-69 on Cameron Delaney’s trey with 5:14 left yet it would be as close as the Bearkats could get.“I’m proud of our guys,” said Southeastern Louisiana coach Jay Ladner. “I thought we showed some composure because we got into some early foul trouble with some of our key players.”MBB Semifinal: Veal scores 29 points en route to #SouthlandStrong Player of the Game honors on ESPN3.

TOTTENHAM manager Jose Mourinho has revealed Giovani Lo Celso is not yet at a level where he can expect to start matches.The Argentine midfielder joined Spurs on-loan in the summer with an option to buy, but has failed to hit the ground running.1 Giovani Lo Celso was hauled off after 65 minutes against Bayern Munich on WednesdayCredit: Rex FeaturesAnd Mourinho has been brutally honest in his assessment of Lo Celso, conceding that at present he has better options to choose from.He said: “Our squad is not a big squad in numbers, and he will start for sure because it’s impossible to play all the time with the same players.”It looks obvious the way Dele is playing, Sonny. In this moment they are one step ahead.”I couldn’t hide from you that we have a few players one step ahead because of performance. So you want to be objective and asks if he starts Sunday, no he doesn’t.”After being sidelined for a month with a hip injury, it was expected Lo Celso would start to forge a way into the starting line-up when he returned in mid-October.But that has not happened, something the Spurs boss says can be the case for some players who come to the Premier League.However, Mourinho admitted he does not know when the 23-year-old’s form will improve.”I don’t know,” he added. Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho says everyone has the same chances in the first knockout round of the Champions League “Impossible for me to say that. Some players accelerate the process, some players arrive immediately and fit in, others they take a long time. It’s difficult to say.”Spurs travel to Wolves on Sunday at 2pm as they look to be the first team to beat the West Midlands side in the league since mid-September.The Lilywhites currently sit seventh in the table, one point behind Wanderers and six behind Chelsea in fourth.
Radradra bagged the first four-try haul of his 70-game NRL career on Sunday night in the Eels’ 34-16 flogging of St George Illawarra in Wollongong – marking the fifth hat-trick of his career.He scored his first three tries on the left wing, completing relatively simple moves down the Parramatta edge and receiving the final ball from either Michael Jennings or Corey Norman.However, his fourth and final try came on the right edge, courtesy of a slick inside ball from full-back Bevan French – surprising the Dragons defence.But Radradra said the tactic had been one he and Arthur had developed over the pre-season.”He let us do whatever we want to do,” Radradra said of Arthur. “He never tells me to just stay on the wing. Sometimes if it stays quiet I come find the ball.”It’s pretty difficult to defend as well. The confusion is tough.”Radradra was quiet in the Eels’ opening-round win over Manly last weekend, but was far more involved against the Dragons on Sunday night.The 75th-minute move with French was not the only time Radradra drifted to his right, as he also set up on the opposite edge from a number of scrums and shifted in-field in the middle of sets.Arthur said it was a tactic he would continue to employ.”Semi has a licence to go and get his hands on the football,” Arthur said.”He’s one of our strikes. We’re not going to pigeon-hole him into one side of the field.”It’s very hard to plan defensively against him when he’s doing things like that.”Radradra future still clouded Radradra’s future at the Eels is still unclear.He has a domestic violence court case hanging over his head, with the next hearing due for May 2.He has also signed to join French rugby club Toulon next season, however he could be forced out of the NRL well before that if he is found guilty on two counts of assault against his former partner.But Arthur said Radradra was in a clear headspace at the moment.”He’s got a bit of clarity at the moment,” Arthur said. “He likes being around his team-mates. His team-mates have been fantastic for him.”We like to see a happy (Radradra).”

Suspended Liberty Party member, Sen. Jonathan Lambort Kaipay Barely three days after the opposition Liberty Party (LP) suspended Grand Bassa Senator Jonathan L. Kaipay for time indefinite, the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) has meanwhile extended invitation to the suspended senator to join the governing party.According to a statement issued on Friday, March 29 in Monrovia, the Liberty Party said despite commitment made by Senator Kaipay to the party’s leadership on the just ended impeachment process of Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh to vote against the removal of the Associate Ja’neh, Senator Kaipay voted to remove Ja’neh.The LP’s statement further stated that Senator Kaipay violated the oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of Liberia as a Senator as well as article (II) section (III) of the party’s constitution which pertinent part highlights the objectives.“We will like to welcome Senator Kaipay and all other partisans that have been victimized by the undemocratic and unilateral decision to have them suspended or expelled simply for exercising their democratic franchise as lawmakers and citizens of the republic to the Mighty CDC. We want to call on the National Chairman of the Mighty Coalition for Democratic Change, Mulbah K. Morlu, to reach out to Senator Kaipay and others in welcoming them to the party,” the Youth League of the CDC said.“CDC however frowns on the wave of undemocratic and callous dictatorship been exhibited by Liberty Party to have ‘suspended for time indefinite’ the erudite senator of Grand Bassa County lawmaker for exercising his constitutional right.”“This action on the part of the opposition political party exposes the weakness of the so-called opposition party and speaks volume to the lack of institution building in the opposition,” said Isaiah H. Togbah, Chairman of the CDC Management Team, said at a news conference in Monrovia.According to CDC, over the weekend after the Senate voted to impeach former Associate Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh, Mr. Dillon took to his social media page (now considered the new Executive Committee of the Liberty Party) to threaten Senator Kaipay of expulsion from the Liberty Party “which has convinced our consciences more that Dillon is the new political leader of the party.”“One will wonder why we are flagging this issue but we refuse to believe that Darius Dillon is bigger than the Liberty Party, an opposition party that is supposed to be responsible and organized like the CDC did for the past twelve years,” CDC indicated.Mr. Togba stressed that the CDC is non-tribal, non-religious, and without gender, generational or other biases that discriminate amongst people, stating “its policies are people driven, people oriented, and people centered to guarantee the wholesome functioning and development of the Liberian society and nation.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
AN author who re-visited the coastal route from Malin Head to Cork – which he first wrote about 25 years ago – claims a Gaoth Dobhair beauty spot has been destroyed by development.In the summer of 1991 Paul Clements hitchhiked the coastline of Ireland for his first travel book.Now he has retraced his footsteps for a new book based on a journey along the same route – now of course called the Wild Atlantic Way as part of a tourism re-branding. Clements went on the lament the huge number of holiday homes which have been built over the past quarter of a century.And turning to our county he wrote: “In north Donegal, because of the large increase in the number of white Snow-cemmed holiday homes, the local name for Bloody Foreland has been cynically rechristened ‘Bloody Blandland’.”“Many parts of the west coast have also been infested with holiday homes and bungalows, twice as big and twice as numerous, built with little or no planning control,” he said describing his new book.He also hits out at the number of wind turbines along the route. “For my meandering journey in 2015, from Malin Head to Kinsale, I wanted to see how the west coast has changed. At first appearance the physical face of the countryside with its rich green farmland, shifting light, wide skies and seascapes in harmony is essentially the same,” he said.“But the landscape, which was clutter- free apart from pylons, is now swathed with wind turbines which have denatured the countryside. Several hundred of these towering superstructures pepper the hills as the wind energy industry strives to meet EU emissions targets.”Belfast-based Clements’ book – Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way – goes on sale this week.

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc., citing consumers’ need for variety in beer, said Friday it will pay $82 million to purchase the Rolling Rock beer brand from InBev USA, the U.S. subsidiary of Belgian-Brazilian brewer InBev SA. The company, the nation’s largest brewer, said it will begin producing Rolling Rock and Rock Green Light in August at its Newark, N.J., facility, one of 12 Anheuser-Busch breweries across the country. The plant where the beer has historically been brewed, in Latrobe, Pa., and which employs more than 200, will be sold, InBev USA said. The deal will allow Rolling Rock brands to be made available to more consumers, St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch said. “We have an ideal opportunity to grow this historic brand,” Anheuser-Busch president August A. Busch IV said. “This beer is not like others, and its consumer following is equally distinctive. “We live in a diverse world where consumers are hungry for variety,” Busch said. “Acquiring Rolling Rock enables us to reach a new audience and to continue building our broad portfolio of products that meet the wide-ranging needs of consumers.” Ben Steinman, editor of the industry publication Beer Marketer’s Insights, said the purchase is part of Anheuser-Busch’s growing effort to diversify its product line. In February, the brewery signed a deal to be the sole U.S. distributor of Grolsch, a high-end European import. At the time, Busch said the company was looking to add more import beers to its portfolio. “A-B was something of a monolith _ they had these megabrands, Bud and Bud Light, and serviced the needs of a great number of drinkers,” Steinman said. “What’s been happening in the last several years is drinkers crave more variety and more choice. What you’re seeing is A-B trying to get after this.” InBev USA, based in Norwalk, Conn., said it will sell the Latrobe brewery and focus its U.S. business on its imported beers, which include Stella Artois and Beck’s. The company is in talks with potential buyers. “The decision to sell the Rolling Rock brands was based on InBev’s strategic approach to the U.S. market, which is to focus on the high-growth import brands in our portfolio,” said Doug Corbett, president of InBev USA. Rolling Rock was introduced in 1939 by Latrobe Brewing Co. It was acquired by InBev’s Labatt U.S.A. in 1987. The sale has imperiled the jobs of the workers at the Latrobe brewery, which has operated for more than a century and has become a local and regional fixture. Scores of unionized workers from the brewery gathered Friday at a hotel to pick up severance information. “They’re claiming we’re going to stay open two and-a-half months,” Joe Mulheren, a union steward, told Pittsburgh’s WTAE-TV. “If we don’t get a buyer in two and-a-half months, we’ll be done July 31st.” A closure could significantly affect the local economy as the brewery is among Latrobe’s top sources of real estate tax and one of its biggest buyers of water. Ed Dobies, who has worked at the brewery for 42 years, said that “taking Rolling Rock out of Latrobe doesn’t sit right with me.” Anheuser-Busch said it will maintain Rolling Rock’s and Rock Green Light’s recipes, and will continue to sell the beers in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Shares of Anheuser-Busch fell 6 cents to close at $46.13 on the New York Stock Exchange. AP reporter Daniel Lovering in Pittsburgh contributed to this story.

⚒️⚒️⚒️ #WelcomeJack pic.twitter.com/3d5mjcuUbZ— West Ham United (@WestHamUtd) July 10, 2018“I’m not having West Ham helping him in his career,” he said on Monday. “It is just him picking a club that is close to home and there is nothing that is going to challenge him or change anything about this at all. The last thing he needs is nice, he needs to challenge himself.”Redknapp joined Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast to react to the news and he couldn’t disagree more with Durham’s comments.“Fantastic, it’s a great signing for West Ham,” the former Hammers boss said.“Jack Wilshere is an outstanding player – if he can just stay fit he’s going to be a big signing for West Ham.“I like the look of them, West Ham are bringing in a few players, they look like they mean business this year which is great for the fans.“But I think Jack is definitely the icing on the cake, I think he’s a great signing.”Durham blasted Wilshere for picking the ‘nice’ option, but Redknapp insists the midfielder is a ‘great fit’ for the Hammers.“I don’t know how many offers he had, but West Ham is a great move for him,” he added.“It’s a London club, a big club. They get 60,000-odd people every week.“I hate it when people keep saying West Ham is not a big club – of course it’s a big club!“When you get that type of support, they fill that stadium every week and I think it’s great move for Jack, I really do. It’s a good fit for him.”Listen back to Harry Redknapp on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above! Harry Redknapp has hit back at talkSPORT presenter Adrian Durham for saying Jack Wilshere has made an ‘appalling’ decision to join West Ham.The former Hammers manager says he ‘hates when people say West Ham is not a big club’ and insists the midfielder is a ‘great signing’ for the east London side.Wilshere completed a free transfer to the London Stadium on Monday, following his departure from Arsenal at the end of last season when his contract expired.The 26-year-old was linked with a number of clubs in the Premier League and wider Europe, but it was claimed his preference was to remain in the capital and ultimately opted to sign for West Ham – the club he supported as a boy.But the move was slammed by Drive host Durham, who said Wilshere has effectively chosen to enter ‘the early stages of retirement’ by moving to the Hammers, while also ending any hopes of a return to the England side.

We have to grow smart. “I did not run for this job to just maintain the status quo. I ran for this job because I want this to be the city that it can be – a city of destiny.” The mayor has vowed to create a $100 million trust fund for affordable housing, and asked business leaders to support a $1 billion bond issue that would help finance the program. “We need to have smart growth, but we also have to change our way of thinking,” Villaraigosa said. “A lot of us grew up with the idea of a three-bedroom house with large backyards and front lots. We have to recognize that is not going to be possible. “We have to look at other cities – New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston. We need to have more mixed-use development along transit corridors. UNIVERSAL CITY – Calling the San Fernando Valley the “backbone” of Los Angeles, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa challenged its business leaders on Thursday to support his efforts to reform the city’s public schools and boost its economy. In his first “State of the Valley” address, Villaraigosa told about 400 members of the Valley Industry and Commerce Association that they can help develop policies that will attract good-paying jobs to broaden the middle class. “I didn’t need a political consultant to tell me I needed to spend a lot of time in the Valley during my campaign,” Villaraigosa said at VICA’s annual luncheon. “I did it because the San Fernando Valley is the backbone of this city. It is 40 percent of the population but, more importantly, it is 60 percent of the middle class.” The mayor warned that the dream and promise of the city could be threatened unless government, civic and business communities join forces. “We are going to start this in downtown, but we want to work with you to bring it throughout the city,” he said, citing the NoHo Arts District as a potential venue. “I think North Hollywood can become a model for the city, for the nation, on smart growth,” Villaraigosa said. He also said he is encouraging pension officials to review the city’s investments and determine whether they could provide capital to start and expand local businesses, taking advantage of new developments in the biomedical, biotechnical and computer industries. And Villaraigosa urged the business leaders to support his escalating efforts to reform Los Angeles Unified, the nation’s second-largest school district. “This will not be a city you want to live in unless we can make our schools work,” Villaraigosa said. “We will be a great city only if we have a great school system. Public schools have been what has made this country successful. Look at me. I was a high school dropout and public schools gave me a second chance. Look at where I am now.” Former LAUSD board member Roberta Weintraub, who now operates a charter school, said she initially opposed the mayor’s education reform proposals, but has since changed her mind. “As I see what is going on in the district and the difficulty there is to work with them, I think he is on to something,” Weintraub said. Bruce Ackerman of the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley said Villaraigosa impressed him and others at the gathering. “What he’s doing so far is showing leadership,” Ackerman said. “You might not agree with him on everything, but you agree that he is trying to accomplish something.” Rick Orlov, (213) 978-0390 firstname.lastname@example.org 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mrs Brown’s Boys star Danny O’Carroll shows he isn’t afraid to muck in when it comes to getting his team fit for the new season. Danny, who is known better as Buster in the hilarious sitcom, is joint manager of Donegal League side Lagan Harps who begin their campaign later this month.Danny put his side through their paces during a pre-season run through the Old Foundry in Lurgybrack outside Letterkenny. Danny O’CarrollBut as you can see from the picture, the players are covered from head to toe in muck, while Buster has managed to steer clear of the mud and keep his managers tracksuit intact.Lagan Harps stalwart Ernie Pollock revealed last year how Danny was no mean player when he got the time to line-out for his local side.But the Dubliner was forced to hang up his boots for a while this season because of work-commitments.Danny will be hoping his side can match the success of the hit TV show he stars in which recently hit the big screens. Rumours that Buster has secured the services of the affable Mrs Brown have not yet been confirmed, although it is believed that initial negotiations have taken place between both parties.It’s believed that her role at the club would involve making sandwiches for after the games, and ensuring the kit is sparkling clean for every match.
