Photo by Mike WeaverLEXINGTON, Ky. – The Ohio talent pipeline has been good to Kentucky football since Mark Stoops and his staff took over after the 2012 season, but two of the Wildcats’ earliest recruiting wins in the Buckeye State are now leaving the program.A school spokesman confirmed Monday that cornerback Jaleel Hytchye, the first player from Ohio who committed to Stoops at UK, and linebacker Dorian Hendrix, the fourth player from the state to pick the Cats and first member of their 2014 recruiting class, are both transferring. Neither was a projected starter and each spent time with the third string in preseason practices.Hytchye, a third-year sophomore from Cincinnati, played in eight games – starting one – but only made nine tackles in 2013. He appeared in just one game last fall. Out of high school, his long list of scholarship offers included Arizona State, Boston College, Louisville, Penn State, Pittsburgh and Tennessee.Hendrix, a redshirt freshman from Huber Heights, Ohio, sat out last season despite enrolling in January of 2014 and participating in spring football. He was rated the No. 25 inside linebacker recruit in the country by Rivals.com.The Wildcats have now lost five touted prospects from the Buckeye State since June: Hytchye, Hendrix and offensive linemen Josh Krok, Josh Richardson and Marcelys Jones. Krok and Richardson both plan to transfer and Jones was kicked off the team for an unspecified violation of team rules shortly after transferring in from Ohio State.Kyle Tucker can be reached at (502) 582-4361.

Somwaru will respect result of BCB elections, if he loses

first_img– says cricket must be the ultimate winnerBy Rajiv BisnauthTHE Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) presidential election is shaping up to be a two-man contest between former president Dhierandranauth Somwaru and Director of Regional Health Services in Region Six, Jevaughn Stephens, but with the current state of affairs of the game in the Ancient County, the result could go either way.However, many observers in that County are of the opinion that Somwaru faces an uphill task in garnering a comfortable majority. In fact, the observers are maintaining that Berbice cricket needs a fresh mind with new philosophies.To this end, Chronicle Sport spoke with Somwaru, who pledges to respect the final election results, adding that cricket must be the ultimate winner.“I will definitely accept the result and move on. If I win so be it, if I lose so be it, but at the end of the day, as I said before, cricket must be the ultimate winner,” the 65-year-old said.Somwaru, who was elected president on October 8 last, had his term shortened after a majority of the clubs and sub-association members had filed legal proceedings, claiming widespread irregularities during the election process.They had also claimed that the elections were not held in keeping with the Cricket Administration Act. This led High Court Judge Navindra Singh to order new elections on December 18 last after the result of the October 8, 2017 elections was annulled by the Court.“I respect the Judge’s ruling, so come Sunday I just hope that a smooth and fair election will be held according to the Judge’s order. Whoever wins I just hope cricket is looked at in a holistic approach,” Somwaru revealed.The former president of the Guyana Cricket Umpires Council (GCUC) made it quite clear that should there be any differences this time, he would not be seeking any position at the board in the future neither would he be part of any legal proceedings.Sunday’s elections could be seen as the most vital elections in the history of the BCB since election for the top post is creating widespread interest in the cricketing fraternity.This has come against the background that the administration of the game in the Ancient County has been thrown into turmoil, ever since the board’s 2014 elections.last_img read more

Jamaica top CARIFTA Games medal tally

first_imgNASSAU, Bahamas (CMC) – Regional heavyweights Jamaica wrapped up their campaign at the 47th CARIFTA Games with a medal haul of 82, in yet another domination of the region’s premier track and field championship.The Jamaicans landed 44 gold, 27 silver and 11 bronze medals to top the standings, emphatically setting themselves apart from their regional counterparts over the Easter weekend at the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium.Sixteen-year-old sprinter Briana Williams headlined her country’s dominance as she won three gold medals and accounted for two records, in landing the treasured Austin Sealy Award for the Most Outstanding Athlete.The United States-based Williams broke a two-decade old 100 metres Girls’ Under-17 record and also helped reset the sprint relay record.At the core of Jamaica’s medal haul was their clean sweep of the 1500m finals, the sprint hurdles and the sprint relays. They won three of four of the 100m finals and the 4x100m relay finals.However, their overall tally was less than in previous years as they picked up 86 medals last year and in 2016.Meanwhile, hosts The Bahamas ended with 35 medals – six gold, 14 silver and 15 bronze. Trinidad and Tobago claimed 17, comprising four gold, six silver and seven bronze.The only other country to reach double figures were Barbados who clinched 13 – three gold, five silver and five bronze.Next year’s CARIFTA Games will be staged in Cayman Islands for the third time.last_img read more

Tarrant’s 24 points lead Alabama past UCLA, 56-50

first_imgTUSCALOOSA – Ricky Tarrant was hot in the first half when nobody else was.Tarrant outscored UCLA before halftime and finished with a season-high 24 points to lead Alabama to a 56-50 victory on Sunday night over the struggling Bruins. He had 18 points at the half, one more than UCLA.“I thought Ricky did a great job of carrying us,” Crimson Tide coach Anthony Grant. “In the first half, we were getting good looks that weren’t falling for us, and Ricky was the one guy that was able to get the shots to fall.”Levi Randolph hit 5 of 6 free throws in the final 33 seconds to help the Crimson Tide (9-3) seal its third win in a row.Bryce Alford led the Bruins (8-5) with 16 points but missed two 3-pointers over the final 38 seconds. It was their third straight loss.Randolph finished with 15 points while both teams struggled from the field. Tarrant, a Tulane transfer, cooled off after a hot start.“I was just making plays within the offense,” he said. “My teammates and coaches put me in great situations. It wasn’t so much me doing anything special.”Isaac Hamilton scored 15 and helped spark UCLA’s second-half comeback with eight straight points to end a 10-0 opening run.The Bruins had another poor first half, trailing 29-17 after managing just seven points before halftime in getting routed by No. 1 Kentucky eight days earlier.“It’s been a bad trend,” UCLA coach Steve Alford said. “Three out of the last four games, we have not started well, and we’re trying to figure things out. For whatever reason, our first halves have been just brutal over the last couple of weeks.“We’re going to have to figure that out going into league play.”The Bruins, who had trailed since the opening two minutes, finally caught up at 48-48 on Hamilton’s 3-pointer with 2:17 left. Alford drove toward the basket and fired a pass to him in the right corner.Randolph answered with a jumper and then the teams swapped turnovers.Hamilton tied it again with a put-back for UCLA, and Tarrant hit 1 of 2 free throws with 50 seconds left for a 51-50 edge.Bryce Alford missed a 3-pointer from the top of the key and Randolph made two free throws with 33 seconds left to make it 53-50.Bryce Alford tried another contested 3 from nearly the same spot, and the Bruins were forced to send Randolph back to the line.“With about 20 seconds to go, I should have called a timeout,” Steve Alford said. “We had time to set because nothing was materializing. That was just a difficult shot.”The Bruins shot 16 of 52 (30.8 percent). Alabama wasn’t much better, going 17 of 51 (33.3 percent).Normally a strong free-throw shooting team, the Tide was just 18 of 30 from the line. Randolph & Co. did close it out strong, and Tarrant made 8 of 10.Alabama hosts North Florida on Friday.last_img read more

F1 bosses reveal ambitious plan to start coronavirus-hit season with drivers tested every two days

So there is a tremendous amount of work going on with the FIA and I am very encouraged by what I have seen and what I am hearing that we will be able put on a safe environment.”Everybody will be tested and will receive clearance before they can go in to the paddock and every two days they will be tested.F1 chief Ross BrawnBrawn also revealed he will be presenting the full details of the safety measures to the drivers over the coming days. Meanwhile, he says talks with team bosses over an introduction of a cost cap, that will limit team’s budgets to $145million (£117million), has been agreed.Red Bull boss Christian Horner told SunSport he felt there was a better solution to cutting team’s costs by allowing them to purchase older chassis, saving them millions.But Brawn says a cost-cap will come into F1’s rules to drive down the amount they spend on developing their cars.He said: “The budget cap’s initial objectives were a more competitive field and with the situation we have now, the economic sustainability of Formula One is the priority.“That counts as much for the big teams as it does for the smaller ones. We are going to start at $145m and discussions are on how to drive this down.“There is also going to be a much more equitable prize fund.“The midfield teams are going to be much-more better off in terms of the proportion of prize money.“It has been balanced in every direction. Reduce the amount of money spent in F1 and improve the distribution of the prize fund more evenly.“A good, midfield team should be able to score podiums, even a win and it should make a small profit.“If we can achieve that, then we should have a more sustainable future.“We want to keep the teams alive. If we lost a team in this period it would be a tragedy. We are working hard in a fair and equitable way.“We have ten very good teams in F1 and we want to keep it that way.”Max Verstappen’s tackles virtual lap of Australian Grand Prix Real or Fake?

Josh Gad to reassemble the ‘Ghostbusters’ cast in next ‘Reunited Apart’ episode

first_imgColumbia Pictures(LOS ANGELES) — Who you gonna call?  Josh Gad is gearing up for the next episode of Reunited Apart, which will celebrate the original Ghostbusters.The new episode, which airs on Monday, June 15, on Gad’s YouTube channel, will bring the original cast and crew back together, along with the film’s director Ivan Reitman’s son, Jason Reitman, who helmed the upcoming Ghostbusters sequelGad also revealed the list of confirmed names set to join in the fun on Monday, which includes Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts.   It should be noted that the cast will be reprising their roles in Ghostbusters: Afterlife.One original cast member will be missing from Monday’s episode: Harold Ramis, who played Dr. Egon Spengler and co-wrote the first two Ghostbusters movies.  Ramis passed away in 2014 after an extensive battle with an autoimmune disease.It is likely that the audience will hear plenty of never-before-heard stories about Ramis, as previous movie tidbits and secrets are commonly spilled during the Reunited Apart episodes.In the new episode’s promo, Potts impressively recites the iconic line she droned in the first movie, “Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis?”However, she poses the loaded question to Gad, who answers in a determined tone, “If there’s a reunion in it, I’ll believe in anything you say.”Next week’s installment, which airs 12 p.m. ET on Monday, will benefit the charity EJI.Org, which Gad says is “an organization committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the U.S., to challenging racial and economic justice, to protecting the most basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.”By Megan StoneCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
