Photo by Cristian ArquetaSoto.In desperate need of a win to earn a bid to the NCAA tournament, TCU men’s basketball shot just 39 percent as a team and got zero points from their bench, falling 81-66 to No. 11 Texas Tech.“We’re obviously not happy with how we played,” headcoach Jamie Dixon said.  “We have to finda way to get better.”With just a seven-man rotation, TCU was forced to play each member of their starting five at least 34 minutes, while their bench went 0-4 from the floor.On the other hand, Texas Tech shot 57 percent in thegame as a team and had five players in double figures.TCU came out of the gate swinging, forcing a steal onTexas Tech’s first possession and taking an early 4-3 lead.  The offensive dominance of the Red Raiderswould soon come into effect though, as they went on a 25-7 run to go up 28-11midway through the first half.“They’re just a really good team that came out, and they were real physical with us,” guard Alex Robinson said.  “We just dug ourselves too big of a hole.”The Horned Frogs were getting good looks but finding it hard to convert them into points, shooting just 3-13 from the field.  Meanwhile, the Red Raiders were shooting an outstanding 65 percent as a team, scoring at will.“They’re much more physical than we are,” Dixon said.With 5:14 left in the first half, a tip-in by forward JD Miller ended an 8:23 stretch for TCU without a made basket.  This drought had put TCU down 33-11 before Miller’s score.JD Miller scored a game-high 18 points for TCU. Photo by Cristian ArquetaSoto.The Horned Frogs trailed 43-25 at the halftime break, their largest halftime deficit of the season.  TCU had a lot of work to do, as they were just 8-28 from the floor and 3-10 from beyond the arc.The Red Raiders had dominated the Horned Frogs in the paintto that point, scoring 22 of their first half points down low.Unfazed by their deficit, TCU forced three early turnovers and went on a 10-0 run to start the second half. Forward Kouat Noi and Robinson each scored five points during the run.“I was happy how we came out in the second half,”Dixon said. Robinson would finish with 17 points, 15 of which came in the second half alone. The senior from Fort Worth also added six assists. This momentum was short-lived though, as the Big 12’s best three-point shooting team started to expose TCU, one of the Big 12’s worst teams in terms of three-point defense. The Red Raiders exploded on an 11-4 run behind three made from behind-the-arc to push their lead back to 15.“Really, it’s our defense that just continues to putus in a hole,” Dixon said. The game was back-and-forth from there, with TCU drawing as close as 12 at times but as far as 20 at others. With the Horned Frogs unable to go on any substantial runs, a dunk that shook the entire arena by Red Raiders’ guard Jarrett Culver put Texas Tech up 17 with 4:36 left to play and all but put the nails in the coffin for TCU.A projected top-ten pick in the 2019 NBA draft, Culver had been all over the court for the Red Raiders. The sophomore who leads Texas Tech in points, rebounds and assists per game poured in 15 points, seven assists, six rebounds and five steals. Miller caught fire for TCU in the closing minutes, going 3-3 from deep in the last 2:14 seconds to finish with a game-high 18 points.While TCU leads the Big 12 in assists per game, it wasTexas Tech who shared the ball well in the contest, totaling 22 assists.Noi added 15 points and four steals for the Horned Frogs in the loss. With three made three-pointers, the sophomore has now sunk one from deep in 26-straight games.Forward Kouat Noi made a three-pointer for the 26th-straight game against the Red Raiders. Photo by Cristian ArquetaSoto.It doesn’t get any easier for TCU in their next action, as they face No. 16 Kansas State, tied with Texas Tech for first in the Big 12, in their final home game of the season. Tip-off at Schollmaier Arena is scheduled for Monday at 8 p.m.“We know this game probably means more than any of the other Monday games that we’ve played,” Robinson said. “We are all gonna mentally prepare ourselves for Monday.” TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Twitter TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hellolast_img read more

Delphi girls’ double murder: Police explain mysterious change in person of interest sketch

first_imgIndiana State Police(DELPHI, Ind.) — The Indiana State Police is now clarifying why the first sketch of the person of interest in the mysterious Delphi double murder looks so different from the man in the new suspect sketch released this week: they are two different people.The man seen in the initial person of interest sketch — who was believed to be in his 40s or 50s — is not currently a person of interest in the case, police said Wednesday.Investigators want to the public to focus on this different, younger man pictured in a new sketch released Monday. The suspect is believed to be between 18 and 40 years old, but may appear younger than his age, police said.This young, unknown man is being sought in the killings of eighth-graders Abby Williams, 13, and Libby German, 14, who were killed on a hiking path on Feb. 13, 2017.The shocking crime has devastated the residents of Delphi, a tight-knit community of nearly 3,000 people.The killer is believed to currently or previously live in Delphi, work in town or visit on a regular basis, Indiana State Police Superintendent Douglas Carter announced Monday.“We believe you are hiding in plain sight” and even “may be in this room,” Carter said at a news conference.“We likely have interviewed you or someone close to you,” Carter said.Delphi residents “should reflect back on people they know in the community that look similar to the sketch released on April 22nd, especially if that person has changed their appearance since the murders,” state police said in a statement on Wednesday.This new suspect sketch “is representative of the face of the person captured in the video on Liberty German’s cell phone as he was walking on the high bridge” the day of the crime, police said.In 2017, police released a grainy image from Libby’s phone showing someone on the trail the day the girls went missing. On Monday, police revealed a new, brief video clip showing that suspect walking on the bridge near where the girls were last seen.“When you see the video, watch the person’s mannerisms as they walk,” Carter said Monday. “Do you recognize the mannerisms as being someone you might know?”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Northgate Apartments One Step Closer to Resident Control

first_imgNORTHGATE APARTMENTS ONE STEP CLOSER TO RESIDENT OWNERSHIP[Burlington, VT] Representative Bernie Sanders joined Northgate residents and funders today to commemorate a major accomplishment in advancing the long term preservation of Vermonts largest resident-controlled rental housing complex. Fannie Mae (FNM/NYSE), an investor in multifamily housing, donated its ownership stake in Northgate Apartments to one of the nonprofit owners, greatly reducing the cost of transferring the complex to the residents.As Burlington Mayor, I led the fight to prevent the loss of this critical affordable housing resource and ensure that it could remain an affordable, great place to live for the foreseeable future, Representative Sanders told the crowd. I applaud Fannie Maes donation of its interest and congratulate the residents in taking a huge step to extending resident control, he said.In the late 1980s, the owners of Northgate Apartments had an opportunity to re-develop the property, with the probable permanent displacement of the 336 families who lived there. Then-Mayor Sanders spearheaded the effort to acquire the HUD-assisted property, make needed repairs and capital improvements, and ensure that it remained affordable to low and moderate income families. The Vermont Housing Finance Agency, Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, City of Burlington, HUD and the Bank of America were other key funders.Fannie Mae is committed to preserving affordable rental housing in Vermont, said Ignatius MacLellan, director of Fannie Maes Northern New England Partnership Office. We are honored to join our partners today as we work together to keep housing affordable for the residents of this community. Investing in affordable rental communities is essential to creating healthy and livable neighborhoods like Northgate, MacLellan noted.Housing Vermont, a nonprofit affordable housing developer and tax credit syndicator, is a co-general partner with Northgate Housing, Inc. (NHI), the residents organization in the Northgate ownership structure. Kenn Sassorossi, a Housing Vermont vice president, thanked Fannie Mae for assigning its partnership interest for $1 and said, Fannie Maes donation both evidences its commitment to affordable housing and underscores our shared commitment to perpetual affordability.NHI President Ted Wimpey stated, Perpetual affordability requires a commitment to responsible stewardship and lots of hard work. We gratefully thank Fannie Mae for its generous donation. Its active support of resident control and long-term affordability is absolutely essential to the continued success of Northgate Apartments.Northgate Apartments, located off North Avenue, offers 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments to families across a range of incomes. Rents range from $411 to $780 and 163 families qualify for rental assistance.Resident and NHI Board member John Vogt presented Fannie Mae with a plaque in appreciation for the role it played in Northgates success. Northgate is a great place to live and we will work to ensure that it stays that way for current and future residents, said Vogt.last_img read more
