RelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea Liverpool set a new club record for wins in a single league season but were pushed all the way by a spirited Chelsea side as the champions secured victory in an eight-goal thriller prior to their Premier League trophy presentation at Anfield.Chelsea trailed 3-0 in the first half, but battled back courageously in search of the point that would have secured their place in next season’s Champions League after Manchester United could only draw at home to West Ham earlier on Wednesday, eventually succumbing 5-3 on Merseyside. To make matters worse for Frank Lampard, Alexander-Arnold stepped up to bend a tremendous effort around the wall and into the back of the net with Kepa left rooted to the spot.Things went from bad to worse for Chelsea after yet more horrific set-piece defending led to Wijnaldum blasting past Kepa for 3-0 after Giroud’s headed clearance from a corner struck the hand of Jorginho.Suddenly after a confident start Chelsea were staring at a heavy defeat, but Giroud did reduce the deficit deep into first-half stoppage time after beating Robertson to the rebound after Willian’s close-range strike was parried by Alisson.Liverpool should have made it 4-1 shortly after the break, but Salah’s attempt to finish with the outside of his boot proved ill-advised and Rudiger had to be alert to turn Andy Robertson’s corner behind with Firmino lurking.Firmino did finally end his scoreless run at Anfield when he got between Kurt Zouma and Azpilicueta to fire a bullet header beyond Kepa, but a triple change from Lampard had Chelsea right back in a topsy-turvy game.

BEIJING, China (Reuters) – Chinese state television did not air the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) season opening games, underscoring the damage on the U.S. league’s business in the country following a Houston Rockets executive’s tweet supporting Hong Kong protesters.China Central Television (CCTV), which holds exclusive TV rights for the NBA, did not air the first regular season game between Toronto Raptors and New Orleans Pelicans on its sports channel yesterday. It also chose to air the World Military Games in Wuhan instead of the second game of the day between Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers.CCTV has not said outright that it will not show the league’s regular season games, but the broadcaster’s schedule for the sports channel did not list any NBA games to be aired for the rest of the week.The state TV station said earlier this month it was reviewing its relationship with the league after Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted in support of the protests in Hong Kong, a Chinese-ruled city embroiled in a political crisis due to months of anti-government protests stemming from a controversial extradition bill.State media, including CCTV, sharply criticised Morey for his quickly deleted tweet, which was labelled the latest example of Western interference in a bid to foment unrest and stir up anti-China sentiment.Chinese partners have severed or suspended ties with the NBA, a backlash the league Commissioner Adam Silver admitted had already inflicted significant financial losses in a market estimated to be worth more than $4 billion for the league. Tencent (0700.HK), which holds the rights to show NBA games on its digital platforms, was providing live broadcasts for the two games played yesterday.The firm did not list any games featuring the Houston Rockets on its schedule of NBA games in the coming days, however, in line with its pledge not to make any Rockets games available after Morey’s tweet. The NBA, CCTV and Tencent did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment. read more
The Interfraternity Council released its semester report outlining improvements to Greek life, including an enhanced recruitment process and an emphasis on community involvement. “We’re going to be bringing in some speakers and seminars in the fall to help educate people on [topics] you don’t necessarily [learn] in school,” Elliott said. More than 40 members attended each service day. IFC hopes over 100 members attend each session during future service events. Additionally, IFC said it seeks to expand its philanthropic efforts by joining the Panhellenic Council for four service days at Union Rescue Mission, the largest private homeless shelter in the country. “The relationship between IFC and the University is one of mutual respect,” IFC President Matteo Mendoza said in response to the Daily Trojan article. “We wanted to be able to find an opportunity for organized service on a very large scale in the local area,” Mendoza said. “We are trying to more institutionally partner chapters with their national service or philanthropic organization.” “In the past 5 to 10 years, USC has gotten more heavy-handed in how they’ve operated judicially,” said Jack Elliott, IFC’s executive vice president of judicial affairs. “We’ve seen that not just with Greek life, but all over the place. A big goal for us was rebuilding relations.” According to IFC’s Constitution and bylaws, each fraternity must fully comply with state and University hazing policies. Carlos Ascencio, a freshman majoring in biological sciences, said his fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha, has been very receptive to the recent hazing allegations. Mendoza said students expecting to be hazed are not joining Greek life for the right reasons. According to the timeline, these priorities were well-discussed and reviewed. A Daily Trojan investigation revealed issues between IFC and Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards following a year of USC investigations into hazing allegations and policy misconduct. Issues concerning how SJACS handled investigations and alleged misconduct of judicial proceedings contributed to these problems. The Daily Trojan investigation also revealed a culture of hazing within Greek life, with a former Sigma Alpha Mu member claiming pledges anticipated being hazed. “Students should not feel as though this idea of hazing is something that they can expect or that is normalized,” Mendoza said. Externally, IFC continued discussions with the Office of Equity and Inclusion and other Trojan Greek councils about improving diversity training that addresses race and gender representation and ethics. The Office of Student Affairs implemented the fraternity and sorority priority timeline in Spring 2019, which provides guidelines for policy alterations and future applications. With these new changes taking place and an emphasis on new member education and safety, Mendoza believes Greek life is becoming a healthier environment for students. “Students should feel much safer moving forward,” Mendoza said. Alongside general fire and event planning safety changes, the Fraternity and Sorority Safety Priorities outlines summer plans to “start mapping [alcohol and sexual abuse] prevention education for 2019-20 for all five communities” that are slated to take effect next fall. The five communities include the IFC, Panhellenic Council, Multicultural Greek Council, Asian Greek Council and National Panhellenic Council. Internal changes detailed in IFC’s report include a revised recruitment process involving formal house tours, where interested students meet the members of each house and tour the building, as well as a reframing of the IFC Health and Wellness position to improve the development of IFC members and encourage closer relationships with each new member educator. IFC, the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Leadership Development and the Office of Student Affairs have discussed hazing policy changes and restructuring new member education. “[Pi Kappa Alpha] takes [hazing] concerns seriously,” Ascensio said. “[They] acknowledged that you can go too far and [disrespect the pledges] because of that.” read more
NEW YORK — Romello White’s missed free throw in Dayton, Ohio, elicited a roar from nearly 540 miles away. About 120 people, almost all donning some shade of Syracuse orange, erupted inside the East End Bar & Grill when Arizona State’s White clanked the freebie and SU’s Paschal Chukwu snared the rebound. Two pairs of sirens flickered after Chukwu was intentionally fouled and the withering mass of Orange cheered. The truTV broadcast displayed a young Arizona State fan crying, and the hollering grew louder. A “Let’s go Orange!” chant broke out. SU’s First Four win over ASU was imminent. This is what they were there for. This was the environment they wanted to be a part of. This was March Madness. The East End Bar & Grill is an affiliate bar of New York City’s Syracuse alumni club, Big Apple Orange. New York boasts more than 50,000 SU alumni, according to the university’s New York City website. On Wednesday night, a small contingent packed into a pub on 1st Avenue to watch the Orange play its first Tournament game in two years. Outside the bar, passersby were greeted with an inflatable Otto the Orange, a game-day tradition. An SU flag flew next to a wood-paneled East End sign that was illuminated with an orange light. Inside, owner Kenny Bowen manned the bar in an orange Pearl Washington jersey. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAn hour before gametime, a fan left the male bathroom, which had an orange stall door with ‘Syracuse” spelled diagonally in blue lettering, and noticed the 14 televisions lining the wall. Nine screens displayed the other First Four matchup that took pitted Texas Southern against North Carolina Central, yet few paid any attention. Most eyes were glued to other screens that showed a game that the watchers already knew the end result to: the 2003 National Title Game. “Can you believe (Gerry) McNamara dropped 18 in just the first half?” one fan asked. “This was the big part of the game, when (Keith) Langford got the fourth foul in the second,” another responded with an orange towel over his shoulder. A woman walked into the bar, noticed the replay and posed for a photo while pointing at the screen. When Hakim Warrick swatted Michael Lee’s 3-ball late in the game, a now-packed bar cheered. The broadcast showed a replay, and a group of friends bumped fists.When both games ended, all screens switched to the SU-ASU pregame. The lights dimmed. The first of soon-to-be many “Let’s go Orange!” chants trickled throughout the crowd just before tip-off. One fan explained to his friend, one of the few not in SU gear, that if “we didn’t lose to Boston College, our Tournament resume wouldn’t have been in doubt.”Nick Alvarez | Staff WriterThe game began, and pitchers were poured and passed along. Oshae Brissett scored on a putback, and one fan turned to another and asked why he didn’t just dunk it. While both offenses sputtered early, some groaned while others lobbied insults at Sun Devils head coach Bobby Hurley.SU’s offense went through a couple scoreless possessions, often ending in a contested jumper, and one fan described it as the “tried and true Boeheim offense.” In the latter half of the first, Brissett fell to the ground and a sudden hush went over the bar. Yet, when truTV’s broadcast went to commercial, and the DJ blasted Chance The Rapper’s “No Problem,” nearly the whole bar sung the chorus. More drinks were ordered, and a light cheer trickled through the crowd when the freshman went to the line for his free throws. Halftime came and went and SU hit just one field goal in the first five minutes of the second frame. During the scoreless stretch, some fans threw their arms out in front of them in frustration in an impromptu Jim Boeheim impression. Others offered tips to the 42-year head coach. “We need to go to the press more,” one offered. “We need to send Brisset to the post. They can’t stop him,” another chimed in. The DJ played Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” during a commercial, and one fan took his hat off and banged his head to the beat, seemingly preparing himself for the Syracuse comeback to come in the final seven minutes. The loudest “Let’s go Orange!” chant of the night took place after Brisset tied the game with an and-1 with 4:14 left. After his made free throw that gave SU the lead, an “Oshae” melody was sung to the common “Jose, Jose, Jose” cheer. Two minutes later, moments before Tyus Battle hit the 3-pointer that gave the Orange the lead for good, a fan muttered to himself. “Come on, Tyus. Time to improve that draft stock.”The bar roared when the sophomore’s 3 snapped the net. Cups of beer were jutted into the air, their contents spilling on bystanders, though no one cared in that moment. Facebook Twitter Google+ The rest of the game played out and the crowd never seemed to stop cheering. Chukwu nailed three from the charity stripe in the final minute and Bowen grabbed handfuls of napkins and threw them into the crowd. DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win” scored the celebration as fans stood on booths and hugged fellow alumni. After the final buzzer, the crowd of vintage SU jerseys, polos and old marching band shirts thinned. Ubers were hailed and some stumbled into the cold New York City night. The celebration continued inside the bar, prepping for Syracuse’s Round of 64 matchup against Texas Christian on Friday. “That was literally not even the first round,” one fan said, “but, it was still epic. A win’s a win.” Comments Published on March 15, 2018 at 12:46 pm Contact Nick: [email protected] | @nick_a_alvarez read more

Vincent Enyeama announced last week Friday that he was quitting Lille after seven years at the French Ligue 1 club. Having last manned the post for the club April last year, the fans of the Les Dogues, however, would not forget the fond memories left behind by the former Hapoel Tel Aviv safe-handFormer Super Eagles captain, Vincent Enyeama last week Friday announced dumping French Ligue 1 side, Lille, after seven years. “Beyond his performances, LOSC and his supporters will remember Vincent’s smile and enthusiasm. The club now wishes him the best in his future projects,” a brief statement on their official website read.“The adventure has ended. I thank Lille supporters for their incredible support during these seven years, which were, for me, years of happiness and joy. Thank you, a thousand times, thank you, for this love that you’ve given me,” Enyeama wrote on Twitter. Vincent Enyeama Enyeama received a knock while in action for Lille in April and hasn’t featured for the French side since then. A surgery on his injured knee followed suit in May and after that, it’s been intensive rehabilitation for the ex-Enyimba goalie.On the appointment of Marcelo Bielsa as Lille’s coach last year, the Argentine tactician deemed the Nigerian and several other senior players surplus to requirements and while most of the lads have since moved on in search of greener pastures, Enyeama remained at the club to gain full fitness. “I want to establish myself at Lille. It’s the club that wants me to leave. We’ll see if they find a solution between now and the end of the transfer window. I’m calm. It’s a bit bizarre, but I’m handling it OK. I was informed like the others, by text. We’re under contract; the club does what it wants. We would have liked to have had a discussion. But it’s a business choice made by the bosses,” Enyeama had said.In 2015, Enyeama announced his retirement from international football after a clash with the then Coach Sunday Oliseh of the Super Eagles, ending his 13-year association with the national team.“I have fought a good fight for more than 13 years. I have finished my course; I have kept the faith and sang the anthem with passion. Henceforth, there is laid for me a crown which only God can reward me for my 13 years of national services. God bless Nigeria.“Henceforth, I am no more the captain of the Nigerian senior football team; I am no more the goalie of the team, I am out of the team. I am no more available for international duties. I want to say thank you to every Nigerian fan and supporter worldwide. It’s been the most trying period of my life but I know that Nigerians are there for me and God is with me. God bless Nigeria,” he had said on Instagram then.However, when the news of acute leukaemia to Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme first greeted Nigeria, it jolted the coaching crew of Super Eagles and there were calls from many circles for the return of Enyeama in spite of the fact that second choice goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa had not done badly since being drafted to the team.Super Eagles tactician, Gernot Rohr, then made move for the former goalkeeper and captain of the team to reverse his decision as the German was keen on having the former Lille of France shot-stopper back in the team due to his experience and abilities.” It’s been positive so far, we are yet to get to a point where he will say yes or no. I need him in the team. We need his experience, then we can have a young talented goalkeeper as an understudy. We will meet again in the coming days to talk further, I can’t put a time frame to when talks will take place but it’s very soon. Hopefully, it will be positive,” Rohr had said then.Former Super Eagles captain, Kanu Nwankwo, also said then that he was willing to talk to Enyeama, to come out of retirement. In spite of Ikechukwu Ezenwa not doing badly, Rohr seems not to appear to trust the home-based keeper.Kanu said Nigeria needs “world-class” Enyeama “badly”.“As it is now, we need Vincent badly. In my opinion, Enyeama should come back immediately. Whoever is close enough to reach him should tell him to start coming back. Enyeama is very good. He is one of the best players in Africa, and one of the best in the world. Let the federation look into it and do everything they can to bring him back. If Enyeama says he doesn’t want to come, people like us can talk to him; the federation too can talk to him. If a lot of people talk to him, I’m sure that definitely, he will change his mind,” the two-time African Player of the Year said.Rohr eventually settled for young former Deportivo La Coruna goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho as Super Eagles number one choice goaltender.Born on August 29, 1982, Enyeama had a spell with Enyimba FC of Aba and won the CAF Champions League back-to-back. After three seasons with Enyimba and one with Iwuanyanwu Nationale, he moved to a minor club in Israel, Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv. In 2007, he moved to another Israeli side, Hapoel Tel Aviv, which he helped reach the state cup final.During the 2008/09 season, Hapoel missed the league title by the whiskers, with Enyeama winning the ‘Player of The Year’ award. In 2009/10 Hapoel won the double, with Enyeama scoring a goal during the Cup Final. In June 2011, he moved to Lille for an undisclosed fee on a three-year contract.At the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations, Enyeama stopped three kicks in the quarter-final penalty shootout against Tunisia, but could not prevent a loss to Cote d’ Ivoire in the semi-final. In the 2010 tournament, he was again Nigeria’s shootout hero at the quarter-final game against Zambia and scoring the winning kick himself.Enyeama made his second FIFA World Cup appearance at the 2010 tournament in South Africa. In Nigeria’s opening match, he was named Man of the Match, producing a defiant display to restrict Argentina to a 1–0 win. Enyeama, who was playing his 56th international for the Super Eagles, made six fine saves against the two-time world champions, four of them from Lionel Messi. He was also awarded Man of the Match in Nigeria’s 2–1 loss to Greece.At the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, Enyeama deputised for regular captain Joseph Yobo and led Nigeria to its third continental victory, keeping a clean sheet in a 1–0 defeat of Burkina Faso in the final. He was named in the Team of the Tournament as a first choice goalkeeper.In June 2014, Enyeama was named in Nigeria’s squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. In the Super Eagles’ first and second fixtures he kept clean sheet, he conceded three goals in the last match of the first round against Argentina, a game which ended in a 3–2 defeat for Nigeria, placing them second in the group and thus qualifying them for the second round for the first time in 16 years.His seven years stay was interspersed with a one season loan at Maccabi Tel-Aviv from 2012 to 2013.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram read more
