Coach John Calipari challenged the Wildcats to get tougher in the paint and they delivered in Wednesday night’s 88-67 win over Eastern Kentucky at Rupp Arena.Kentucky (8-1) jumped out to a 12-2 lead that grew to as many as 18 points in the first half, thanks to a barrage of buckets inside. The Cats’ first 16 made field goals were dunks or layups — four of them by senior forward Alex Poythress, who had one of the most productive games of his career.UK outrebounded the Colonels 50-25 and poured in 58 points in the paint after managing just 28 against the Bruins.EKU (7-3) came in as one of the highest-scoring and hottest-shooting teams in America and hung around early by sinking 8 of 13 shots to start. But they made just 6 of 18 to finish the first half and, despite ranking fifth nationally in 3-point percentage, hit only 1 of 8 from deep by intermission and 5 of 18 for the night.Rewind | Cats take down EKU* Lee has impactful return. Junior forward Marcus Lee was back from the unspecified head injury he suffered at UCLA — which ended his night after just four minutes — and he quickly reminded the Wildcats what they miss when he’s gone.UK led just 22-19 midway through the first half when Lee soared to slam a lob through contact and completed a three-point play to double the lead. Then when EKU had slashed an 18-point deficit to eight in the second half and had the ball looking to draw closer, Lee swatted a shot on one end and tipped in a teammate’s miss on the other.Lee finished with 11 points, eight rebounds and five blocked shots in 25 minutes off the bench.* Poythress answers the call. On Tuesday, Calipari said it was critical for Kentucky to establish a post presence — and that maybe the 6-foot-8, 230-pound Poythress would have to be that guy instead of skinny, 6-11 freshman Skal Labissiere.On Wednesday, Poythress gave the Cats exactly what they needed: his third double-double this season after producing just two of those his first three years in college.He started for just the second time this season in place of Lee and went for 21 points (on 9-of-12 shooting) and 13 rebounds in just 24 minutes, punctuating the performance with a drive and two-hand jam over a defender late in the game.last_img read more

(Univ. of Ark.) – Clemson erased a six-point deficit with just over a minute left in regulation and went on to defeat the No. 18 Arkansas men’s basketball team 68-65 in overtime on Sunday at Littlejohn Coliseum.Junior Michael Qualls and sophomore Bobby Portis combined for 39 of the team’s 65 points, as the Razorbacks dropped their second road game of the week to move to 6-2. Clemson now stands at 5-3.Arkansas trailed by as many as nine, 29-20, in the first half, but used a 14-1 run in the second half to turn what was a five-point deficit (36-31) into an eight point lead, 45-37, at the 11:09 mark of the second half. The Razorbacks sped up the slow-paced game during the run, limiting Clemson to just 1-of-7 from the field with five turnovers.The Razorback lead dipped to 53-51 with 3:08 to play before turning to Portis for back-to-back buckets, with the last coming at the 1:17 mark to make it 57-51.Arkansas wouldn’t get a shot off the rest of regulation, as Clemson scored on its next possession and forced two straight turnovers that led to layups that tied the game at 57-57. Despite the 6-0 run, the Razorbacks had the ball with nine seconds left and a chance for the win, but never got a shot off before the horn sounded.Clemson scored the first five points of overtime and Arkansas was able to cut it to a one-possession game a pair of times on three-pointers by junior Athlon Bell and Qualls. Following Qualls’ three with 1:01 left, the Razorbacks were able to come up with two straight stops. Unfortunately, a missed layup and Qualls game-tying three-point bid in the final seconds came up short.Qualls’ game-high 21 points marked his third 20-point outing in the last four games while Portis’ 18 points featured 12 in the second half. The duo combined for 27 of Arkansas’ 37 points over the last 26:35 in regulation while accounting for 13 of the team’s 28 rebounds.The two teams shared nearly identical stat lines across the board, as Clemson had three players with 14 or more points. Junior Rod Hall led the way with 19 points, including four in the 6-0 run to end regulation and a three-pointer to open overtime.#RazorStat Of The GameWith his turnaround jumper from the right baseline in the first half, senior Alandise Harris reached the 1,000-point plateau for his collegiate career (Arkansas and Houston).@RazorbackMBB Quick Hits· First time since 1992-93 that Arkansas has played three non-conference road games.· First time in the last 25 non-conference games that Arkansas has been held below 70 points.· First time since 1998-99 that the Razorbacks have played two ACC teams in the regular season.· Qualls’ 21 points marked his team-leading fourth 20-point game of the year.· Qualls has scored 20+ points in three of his last four games.· Portis and Qualls have reached double figures in seven of eight games.Coach Anderson Postgame Sound“We didn’t do what we’ve been talking about all offseason and that’s finish. I’ll take the blame on this one. I didn’t get the right guys in the game in the right situations. It’s been a tough week with two road games, but these are things you have to overcome to be a good team. We’ll bounce back and use this as an experience to learn from.”Up NextNo. 18 Arkansas will now play four of its next five games at the friendly confines of Bud Walton Arena starting with Atlantic 10 foe Dayton (6-1) on Saturday, December 13.

first_img“The memory of that incident always kind of shocks me,” says Isaiah Akpan.He shakes his head as he recalls the gamble he took in the hope of achieving his dream of football stardom in the richest league in the world, the English Premiership.Instead of taking the first step to sporting fame and fortune, he fell victim to conmen who left him penniless – stranded and alone in a foreign country.The Nigerian 18-year-old lives in Apapa, a northern district of Lagos. Home is a small tin roof shack, where he and his two brothers share one bed.It is a world away from the millionaire lifestyles of the Premiership stars, whose pictures decorate the walls.Mr Akpan, like thousands of soccer-mad African teenagers, puts his details on sports networking websites. Players as young as 12 post their pictures, e-mail addresses, phone numbers – even scans of pages from their passport. Nigerian star Kanu gives his advice to African footballers who want to play in EuropeThe hope is that just maybe this will attract the attention of somebody with connections who will help them get a deal with an English club.“Why most of us want agents is because they can help us; telling us what the clubs are all about and getting better clubs of my choice. Most of these agents, they are linked to clubs in Europe,” he says.What Mr Akpan and many other amateur hopefuls do not realise is that under British immigration rules, it would be impossible for them to get a work permit. They would not qualify as they have not yet played several games for their own national teams.Many also appear to be unaware that no English club would ask for money from a player they are thinking of signing.And it is this sort of naivety which is now being exploited by crooks.StrandedSo it was not long before Mr Akpan was e-mailed by two men who said they were football agents. They men claimed to be so impressed with his online posting that they could arrange him a trial to play for an English team. But at a price.last_img read more

ARSENAL beat Everton 3-2 at the Emirates to put themselves right back in to the mix for European qualification.The Gunners went one down less than a minute into the match when Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s acrobatic effort put the visitors in front.Aubameyang (left, brace) and Nketiah (right) were both on the scoresheet for Arsenal.Goals from Eddie Nketiah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put Arsenal on top but they were pegged back late in the first half by Richarlison’s poked equaliser.Arsenal were impressive to a man, particularly in the second half, and SunSport gives you the lowdown after the 3-2 win.BERND LENO – 7Couldn’t have done much about Calvert-Lewin’s opener but should really have done better with Richarlison’s equaliser, as the Brazilian’s poked effort squeezed between the German’s legs.Improved after the break and was off his line quickly to deny both of Everton’s strikers on separate occasions to secure all three points for Arsenal.HECTOR BELLERIN – 6An unspectacular display from the Spaniard.

Replaced by Bukayo Saka.DANI CEBALLOS – 6Another positive display from the Spanish international as he looks to establish himself as a mainstay in Mikel Arteta’s midfield.Important in the build-up and drew fouls for his team. Could have added a goal with a curled effort that went just wide of the upright prior to his substitution. Aubameyang gave Arsenal the lead after the half-hour mark.Credit: EPAGRANIT XHAKA – 6Guilty of losing a few balls in the first half but did get a ‘second assist’ for Nketiah’s goal and he improved on the ball after the break.His tenacity almost led to a fourth Arsenal goal when he robbed Gylfi Sigurdsson of the ball late on, but  Nketiah’s effort hit the crossbar.NICOLAS PEPE – 8Lively once again and Everton struggled to contain him for large periods.Showed plenty of creativity and assisted Aubameyang’s winner with a cross from the right.MESUT OZIL – 8The German displayed a wonderful range of passing throughout and looks close to his best self in attack at least.Played in Pepe to set up Arsenal’s winner and kept things ticking over in possession.Pepe crossed for Aubameyang’s 46th minute winner after Richarlison had equalised before half time.Credit: EPAPIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG -9His clinical finish put Arsenal in front for the first time in the game as he timed his run perfectly before slotting it into the bottom right corner when one-on-one with Jordan Pickford.Headed Arsenal’s winner seconds after the break and was well deserving of man-of-the-match.EDDIE NKETIAH -7Repaid his manager’s faith and took his goal extremely well, getting on the end of Saka’s cross from the left with the deftest of touches to divert the ball into the bottom right corner.Looked comfortable on the ball and was unlucky to hit the crossbar with an effort in the closing stages.Mikel Arteta says Arsenal must prove to Aubameyang he should staySUBSBukayo Saka -7Impressed again after coming on for Kolasinac.

first_imgIs there anything more frustrating than an inconsistent fantasy football team? You put all that time into your cheat sheet, rankings, and draft strategy, only to have most of the players you pick turn out to be busts. The big weeks are fun but somehow the bad weeks hurt more — and you can’t chalk it all up to bad luck. That’s why you should consider consistency when making your projections and trying to find the top sleepers and busts.BigGuyFantasySports.com is devoted to helping you find the most consistent players with its “Clutch Rating” (or CR). Using a unique formula to determine “Clutch Games”, you can see which players mostly often help your team win. A solidly consistency player will have a CR above 70 percent, while upper-tier stars often top 80 and even flirt with 90 percent.

DOMINATE YOUR DRAFT: Ultimate 2019 Fantasy Cheat SheetIn the preseason, looking at a player’s consistency helps determine whether they are overvalued or undervalued. With a murky set of TE rankings this year, anything to help separate the good from the mediocre can be important.2019 STANDARD RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | Kicker | Top 200LISTEN TO THE SN FANTASY TE PREVIEW PODCAST BELOWFantasy Football Consistency Rankings: Tight Ends1. TE1A Travis Kelce, Chiefs2. TE1A Zach Ertz, Eagles3. TE1A George Kittle, 49ers4. TE1B Jared Cook, Saints5. TE1B Evan Engram, Giants6. TE1B Eric Ebron, Colts7. TE1B Hunter Henry, Chargers8. TE1B O.J.

TE1B Vance McDonald, SteelersFANTASY SLEEPERS: 8 QBs | 14 RBs | 11 WRs | 11 TEs | 6 D/STs | One from each teamIf a player is listed as a TE1A, it means I expect them to earn a 70 percent or higher Clutch Rate this season. You will notice there are currently only three tight ends ranked at that level. Of course, they are the obvious studs: Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz and George Kittle. The remaining tight ends on the above list are all ranked as TE1B. This means I expect them to earn a Clutch Rate between 55 and 70 percent. Obviously, the higher-ranked tight ends like Jared Cook and Evan Engram are expected to earn much higher than 55 percent, but they probably won’t exceed 70 percent. The lower-ranked TEs certainly could exceed a 55-percent Clutch Rating, but my expectations of that happening are lower.The big question for this year at tight end is whether Kelce, Ertz, and Kittle can live up to their extremely high ADPs. To me, the answer is yes. If you grouped them in the wide receiving rankings, their expected consistency numbers last year would have placed them in the top 15. So, getting one of that trio in the first four rounds counts as a value. You can always draft consistent, undervalued receivers later to fill the gap.2019 PPR RANKINGS:Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | Top 200Let’s take a look at one potential sleeper and one possible bust at the TE position, understanding how consistency affects their values.MORE CONSISTENCY RATINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiverUndervalued: Evan Engram, GiantsWhile I realize Engram isn’t greatly undervalued, anytime you can get the fourth-most consistent tight end in the sixth round, it’s worth pointing out. Engram, in what many considered a down year due to injuries, had a 73-percent Clutch Rate (which ranked him sixth) in 2018. However, when Odell Beckham, Jr. wasn’t on the field at the end of the year, Engram had a 100-percent CR (four-for-four to end the season). Beckham is officially gone, and Eli Manning will need Engram more than ever. He’s worth a sixth-round pick when he can earn close to the same consistency as the big three tight ends.Overvalued: Austin Hooper, FalconsEvery year, Hooper’s consistency is in the 20s among tight ends, and every year, early mock drafters treat him as a borderline TE1. Well, that’s why you are here reading this, right? Please do not draft Hooper too high. His consistency was only 38 percent last year. Even if he made it to 50 percent, he’s not a TE1. Let someone else reach for him. He won’t be on any of my teams in 2019.last_img read more

first_imgAntonio Pronto, a chef from Venice, Italy, opens the family owned business this weekend.by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Bravo’s Italian Bistro, located in the old Rocco’s building at 107 W. Harvey Ave. in Wellington , held a soft opening this weekend.Using just word of mouth and the social media, Bravos opened to rave reviews from the locals. This will be the second business venture for Antonio Pronto, who opened a similar restaurant in El Dorado this February.Antonio was born and raised in Venice, Italy. At the age of 19, he came to America and worked in the restaurant business in Kansas City for 17 years before striking out on his own.“Cooking is an art, and always a passion of mine,” Antonio said. “I think the people here will see just how delicious authentic Italian food can be.”Bravo’s will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. The business will offer freshly-made Italian food and assorted homemade bread. The only thing that will be pre-prepared is the tomato sauce, Antonio said. Antonio grew up in Italy believing in the tradition that food was to be specially made, not to be produced in mass quantities the previous days. Want to insult an Italian cook? Compare their food to Olive Garden, Antonio said.Despite having a passion for food, Antonio originally came to America to get a college degree in criminal justice in 1999. His uncle, who happened to be there for 40 years, helped sponsor him. His uncle also just happened to be in the restaurant business working in Kansas City.Antonio would eventually gravitate to the restaurant business, and he served as his uncle’s chef for more than a decade, before the entrepreneur bug hit him and he started a restaurant in El Dorado in front of the Red Coach Inn.It was there that a group of Wellington people came to eat at his restaurant. He didn’t know who they were but when they told him how much he loved his food and they had a ready-made building for him to start a business, his interest was piqued.The Rocco’s building was extensively redecorated from its Lunchbox Restaurant days and featured high-scale Italian dining in a business venture that included Jeff Ralls and Mark Goodrum. Rocco’s was going great guns and was developing a good following from not only locals, but people coming in from Wichita.But after a busy Christmas season, the restaurant closed unceremoniously in January over a business dispute.It had remained vacant until this weekend when Bravo’s reopened its doors. It didn’t take long for the Wellington community to catch on that a new restaurant had opened.“We liked what we saw,” Antonio said about the first weekend . “Before we opened, we felt Wellington was underserved and in need of a really good restaurant. And we feel we are here for a long stay.”Bravo’s is a family owned restaurant that held a soft opening this weekend.Antonio is being assisted by his uncle, Veto Pronto, and his friend Massimo Obliccelo.“We always wanted to franchise our business,” Antonio said. “You could say we chose Wellington over the rest of the world.”Antonio said Italian food isn’t just spaghetti and lasagna. It’s a variety of items from meat dishes to seafood dishes to salads.“I tell people who say they don’t like Italian food to come in and try our food,” Antonio said. “It is unlike anything you have ever tasted.”last_img read more
