Loading… The matchmaker Tweeted: “No need for a third let’s go straight to it in the summer!” But Whyte was quick on the draw and typed back rapidly to point out that Hearn is supposed to look after the interests of both London heavyweights. He replied: “How about doing what’s right and forcing him to fight me first as the No1 challenger.” Savvy Whyte knows a public row with Hearn is bad for his big-money business but he wants his long-overdue shot ASAP. He said: “I pulled Eddie up but he did not say much. Eddie is a businessman. “It p***** me off sometimes but when we do business, we do great business and he is saying all the right things now.” Whyte was accused of failing a drugs test in the build-up to his July win over Oscar Rivas but UKAD cleared him in December on the eve of his fight with Mariusz Wach. The Jamaica-born tank weighed a career-heaviest 19st 5lbs for that Saudi Arabia win but insists we will not see him in that shape again now his mind and record have been cleared.

It was either train or lose my mind.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Dillian Whyte wants to KO Anthony Joshua’s potential December undisputed decider with Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder. The 31-year-old Brixton ace has been the No1 contender for the WBC heavyweight title, that changed hands between Fury and Wilder on February 22, for almost three years. But he is no closer to a crack at Fury’s new crown as he has a trilogy fight with the Bronze Bomber set for July 18. Whyte should be next in line for the winner but AJ and promoter Eddie Hearn want to jump in and complete WBA, IBF and WBA king Joshua’s belt collection at the end of the year. But the Body Snatcher, who shares Hearn’s Matchroom promotional stable with old enemy Joshua, wants to grab that chance ahead of his big rival. Ahead of his May 2 clash with dangerous Russian veteran Alexander Povetkin, Whyte said: “Wilder and Fury do not even need a rematch but I understand it is contractual. “But the winner of that third fight should be fighting me, there should be no undisputed fight ahead of me and that is what we are trying to work on with the WBC, to try to put something in place to avoid happening. “I have more than paid my dues and I don’t want to be fighting for a world title when I am 36. “I want to fight for it now, win it and defend it until I am 36-37 before running off into the night. “Eddie is Joshua’s promoter too and he is obviously bigger than me at the minute so I understand. “We are his No1 and No2 heavyweights but things can change very quickly in this division, as you saw in June last year when he lost to Andy Ruiz Jr.” Tyson Fury will fight Deontay Wilder for a third time in July – with the winner expected to meet Anthony Joshua Seconds after Fury’s sensational Las Vegas demolition of previously undefeated Wilder, Hearn tried to quash the contracted third fight and get AJ in the ring with the Gypsy King.

Dubai: Former world No. 1 and top seed Simona Halep dug her way out of the pit with a 1-6, 6-2, 7-6 win over Arab region’s best player Ons Jabeur as the quarter-final line-up of the Dubai Duty Free Women’s Open was nearly finalised late on Wednesday.Coached by Dubai-based Tunisian Davis Cup player Issam Jallali, the 25-year-old Jabeur was ruthless against her more fancied opponent, currently ranked No. 2 as she came out firing all cylinders. Egged on by a near-full Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium, the lone former champion from the three who entered this week, just stuck to a game plan and hung in there before escaping with a memorable win on centre court.“I think I was a little bit lucky there,” Halep told fans later. “It was a tough match and I know she is a really tough player. I had to give everything I had and I am proud that I was able to fight till the end,” the Romanian added.“In the end I don’t know how I could finish that in a right way. But it was up-and-down a lot because she doesn’t give rhythm. It was very weird, but happy I could win. The atmosphere was like a football match or a Fed Cup match. I didn’t really realise what is going on on-court. Everyone was with a lot of energy so we had to give our best. I think it was a great match.”Halep’s opponent in quarter-finals will be seventh seed Aryna Sabalenka after the Belarussian got past Belgium’s Elise Mertens 6-4, 6-3.Earlier in the day, Karolina Pliskova and Garbine Muguruza stemmed the rot after Tuesday’s carnage of seeds even as Elena Rybakina continued to roll into the singles quarter-finals.Making her seventh main draw appearance during which her best was a runners-up spot when she lost to Simona Halep in 2015, Pliskova brushed aside qualifier Kristina Mladenovic 6-1, 6-2 in a little over one hour.Australian Open losing finalist Muguruza, who had survived a battling former world number one Kim Clijsters on the opening night, had to dig in even deeper for a 7-5, 4-6, 6-4 win over Dubai main draw debutant Veronika Kudermetova in nearly two-and-a-half hours.Losing finalist at last weekend’s St Petersburg Open, the 20-year-old Rybakina — who famously packed off Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin on Tuesday — continued her fine form with a smooth 6-3, 6-3 win over Czech qualifier Katerina Siniakova.

David Wilson: Syracuse 67, Notre Dame 49Don’t let me downThe Orange is coming off an emotional win against Duke and is now the No. 1 team in the country, but the Fighting Irish are coming off a grueling overtime win, as well. SU is simply the more talented team and will be able to pull out an impressive win even if it starts slow against UND.Stephen Bailey: Syracuse 69, Notre Dame 55Outta luckNotre Dame dethroned Syracuse two years ago, but without Jerian Grant, this year’s Irish squad just doesn’t have the talent to hang with SU. The Orange locks down ND’s shooters and cruises to victory No. 22.Trevor Hass: Syracuse 72, Notre Dame 58Outfighting the IrishNotre Dame upset Syracuse when it was No. 1 two years ago, but this year’s Irish team isn’t nearly as potent. Eric Atkins is Notre Dame’s main option now that Jerian Grant is out, and SU shouldn’t have any problem keeping him in check. The Orange’s pursuit of perfection continues.

Undergraduate Student Government postponed a vote to provide funding to host a panel of Olympic athletes during Homecoming Weekend at its meeting Tuesday. USG will vote on this funding request at its next meeting.Motion · Vicken Antounian, a commuter senator, speaks during a USG Senate meeting about funding a panel of Olympians during homecoming week. The Senate moved to postpone a vote until its meeting next Tuesday. – Austin Vogel | Daily TrojanThe panel event, expected to consist of 10 to 12 current and former USC athletes who competed in the 2012 Olympics in London, is estimated to cost $3,884. This includes the cost for the venue, parking and gifts for the Olympians and posters and other advertisement leading up to the event.Some USG senators are hesitant about the cost of the event, which would eliminate almost a third of the Senate’s yearly budget. USG has the option of partially funding the panel and paying solely for the venue, Bovard Auditorium.Trojan Pride and the Alumni Affairs committee requested USG funding for this event because they believe it will benefit the student body and bolster athletic pride on campus.“USC is unique in the fact that we’re so successful in athletics and that we’ve had a better Olympic record than some countries,” said Trojan Pride Director Amanda Schmitt, a sophomore majoring in international relations. “I think the panel will be a way to piggyback off of the hype of the [Olympic] games and bring it back to campus.”The event would coincide with the athletic department formally recognizing the Olympians at the homecoming football game against Arizona State University.The panel discussion would be free to all students on a first-come, first-serve basis and conclude with a question and answer session for students to engage with the athletes.Trojan Pride and the Alumni Affairs committee are also working with the athletic department to incorporate a performance by the Spirit of Troy marching band and to have Los Angeles City Council members attend.The list of Olympic athletes is still being finalized.
Comments Published on November 21, 2018 at 8:57 pm Contact KJ: firstname.lastname@example.org | @KJEdelman After two straight losses at Madison Square Garden and its worst four-game start since the 87-88 season, Syracuse (3-2) rebounded, picking up a 77-56 victory, its 53rd straight win against Colgate (4-2). The Raiders held a lead for most of the first half, but a 33-5 second-half run by the Orange opened up the game, which ultimately ended in a blowout.Here are three takeaways from Wednesday night’s game.Cursed CylinderSyracuse opened the game shooting at an abysmal clip, a little over 35 percent, giving Colgate a slight lead for most of the first half.Oshae Brissett was responsible for most of the struggles, shooting 2-for-9 in the first half. He dominated the offensive glass against the Raiders’ 6-foot-10 Rapolas Ivanauskas with seven rebounds in the first 20 minutes, but couldn’t capitalize on the second-chance points.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn one sequence midway through the first half, the 6-foot-8 forward secured an offensive rebound against Ivanauskas but couldn’t hit the rim. Off the miss, Brissett recovered and shot again, but it was no good. With his third-consecutive rebound, the sophomore tried one more time with three Raiders in his face but again couldn’t convert.Six-straight points from Bourama Sidibe with under three minutes left in the half and an open 3 from Tyus Battle disguised the Orange’s 12-for-34 first-half performance, as SU went into the break up 35-32. Its early woes eventually corrected themselves, and Syracuse opened up their lead in the second half.Close CallAfter Colgate went into the half down three, the Raiders’ Jordan Burns opened the second period with an open 3-pointer from the top of the arc. Ivanauskas did the same, turning a three-point deficit into a quick advantage.The two teams traded baskets to start the second half, with no one taking more than a five-point advantage until seven minutes in. Battle started to heat up when he began to drive into the lane, usually beating Burns or Tucker Richardson at the elbow and laying the ball up with little to no contest.Eventually, a 43-41 Orange deficit was erased by back-to-back 3s from Elijah Hughes and Battle. But Colgate hung around with their perimeter shooting from Burns until Battle took matters into his own hands, eventually running the score to 65-46 seven minutes later.Burst of BattleBattle was Syracuse’s second-leading scorer with eight points in the first 20 minutes, only behind Sidibe with nine. But with SU down a bucket early in the second half, Battle took over. He scored 11 of the Orange’s next 14 points, only broken up by a Hughes triple after his first layup.The junior didn’t resort to his usual mid-range jumpers though. He attacked guards at the arc to get to the rim, and when they backed up, he stepped back to shoot 3s instead of fadeaway twos. As Syracuse’s 28-3 scoring run came to an end, he added to his point total in the fast break.Battle finished with 24 points in 26 minutes of action. He checked out of the game at the eight-minute mark, and head coach Jim Boeheim let Jalen Carey, Buddy Boeheim and Howard Washington take over. In the end, Battle’s quick swarm of buckets turned a game that was back-and-forth for its first 30 minutes into a blowout. Facebook Twitter Google+

Northeast Consortium hosted their first ever MICareerQuest Northeast event. It’s the largest, one-day career exploration for high school and middle school students throughout the area. Over 1,000 students browsed through different areas of work like health care, manufacturing, technology, and construction.Demonstrators had plenty of hands-on activities for the students to test out.“It’s like trying to find something to do for college and stuff,” said Cheboygan Area Schools eighth grader Zander Ferguson. “Trying to find what to do when you are out of high school and stuff.”“It’s very beneficial because it teaches students what their options are ahead of time after they graduate or for their jobs and what they can go to college for,” said Cheboygan Area Schools eighth grader Lia Basanese.With over 200 working professionals from the area participating, the kids had plenty of options to check out. Michigan Conservation Officer Duane Budreau enjoyed showcasing what his field of works has to offer.“Anytime we get interest from our young people, it’s important that we can share that with them,” said Budreau. “Not only the fun and excitement of the job but the honor it carries, it’s a good job with a great purpose, so it’s good to be able to spread that message.”High school students could also showcase clubs and activities that can help prepare younger students for the future like robotics.“I think that the things that we have to do in robotics happen a lot in the workplace, so you have to figure stuff out for yourself,” “Not everything is simple equations and stuff like that, there is problems that you have to solve, so it really deals with real life applications that we learn in robotics.”Students from 11 different counties attended today’s festivities. Organizers hope to bring the event back next year.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Photo of the Day for Tuesday, May 28Next MSP Sergeant saves 2-year-old from getting hit by a dump truck
Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters The 6-foot-10 Italian forward – a career 37.4 percent 3-point shooter – is shooting 42.6 percent from the arc this season, the second-best rate of his nine-year NBA tenure, oft-interrupted by injury.“The best part about Gal is his confidence,” Rivers said(To his point, Gallinari last week mused about Luca Doncic’s assertion that it was harder to score in Europe than in the NBA by reasoning: “To me, it’s easy to score all over the world.”)“He’ll tell you, ‘People forgot how good I was’ ” Rivers said. “And I always correct: ‘I don’t like the was. Am.’ That’s what I tell him. Because he is, he’s a heck of a basketball player.” The return they got in the trade has helped them stay the course, including rookie guard Landry Shamet, who entered the game against the Lakers shooting 46.6 percent from 3-point range and averaging 12.4 points in his nine games with the Clippers.Mike Muscala also was part of the deal and was then shipped to the Lakers for center Ivica Zubac, who came in Monday averaging 8.6 points and 7.7 rebounds as a Clipper.“It’s an interesting group,” Rivers said. “We took a hit when we made that trade, it was a tough day for our team. And to get them back up, to get them to believe, ‘No, we’re gonna win still and we’re trying to win still,’ and for them to start doing it just tells you how resilient they are.”THE ROOSTER CROWSDanilo Gallinari – aka “Il Gallo,” which translates to “the Rooster” – made his 1,000th career 3-pointer with 5:23 left in the second quarter.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates LOS ANGELES — When the Clippers traded leading scorer Tobias Harris (and Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott) to the Philadelphia 76ers on Feb. 6, the working theory outside the organization was that the team would go on to miss the playoffs and thereby retain the lottery-protected first-round draft pick that otherwise is due to be sent to the Boston Celtics.Coach Doc Rivers, like the members of the team’s front office, denied that, contending that it was still very much their intention to make the playoffs.A month later, the Clippers remain in the postseason picture, entering Monday’s game against the 10th-place Lakers in seventh place in the Western Conference.So, no, they really aren’t tanking. What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory “I don’t know that word,” Rivers said before Monday’s matchup. “That was never gonna happen. We may have lost, but we weren’t gonna tank.“We didn’t need to, either,” Rivers continued, adding that even if the Clippers miss the playoffs and keep the draft pick after this season, they’d lose it the following year if they make the playoffs next season.“The whole message on that draft pick thing was we’re gonna lose it one year or the next year, so it’s going one way or the other.”If anything, Rivers said, all the speculation helped fuel the Clippers’ fire.“I think people didn’t believe we could do it (make the playoffs), either, if we wanted to,” he said. “And I thought that talk helped us because that was a challenge, and this is a group, they take pretty well to challenges.” Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum
