Europa League: Sevilla set up Man Utd semi-final after Wolves win

first_img Loading… They looked exhausted after a quick start on a hot night in Duisburg. Jimenez had a header saved after 37 seconds from Adama Traore’s cross and then had a poor penalty saved after Traore was fouled following a sensational surging run. They had two reasons to be aggrieved. Goalkeeper Yassine Bounou appeared to be off his line and defender Diego Carlos entered the box before the kick was taken and headed the loose ball. The video assistant referee did not spot either infringement.

Students launch Wells Project at ’SC

first_imgFor the next 10 days, more than 200 USC students will drink only tap water as they participate in the Wells Project.The money saved from not drinking other beverages will be donated to Rwandan communities to provide clean, safe water through Living Water International.Water · Funds raised by the Wells Project finance the construction of wells throughout Africa. This well was built in a Ghana village. – Photo courtesy of Living Water InternationalThe Wells Project, founded at Texas A&M University in 2007, was created to give college students an opportunity to improve the water crisis in Africa. The Wells Project has since partnered with Living Water International, an organization founded in 1990 devoted to providing potable water sources to African villages; the organization has established 30 chapters at universities throughout the nation.Lindsey Caldwell, co-founder of USC’s Well Project, said USC’s chapter’s goal is to involve the entire campus in the 10-day event.“We all agreed we wanted the Wells Project to unite the campus, not segregate or become an exclusive organization,” Caldwell said in an email. “As we are starting out, we have everyone from engineering students to Greek students to athletes.”Different chapters each made a video to promote the project this year, and junior quarterback Matt Barkley represented USC.USC Wells Project has set a goal of raising $10,000 this year, and 100 percent of funds will go toward the construction of wells in Rwanda.Living Water International will drill wells in Rwanda with the funds raised and participants will receive a Wells Report that includes pictures and statistical information about the wells. The report will include coordinates so that participants can view the well through Google Earth.Caldwell said she founded the USC chapter of Wells Project after hearing about the program’s successes elsewhere and decided to bring the project to USC to raise awareness of the international water shortage and provide a platform for students to help solve the problem.“I heard about the camaraderie it brought to the campus and the sheer joy the members had when they reached their fundraising goals,” Caldwell said. “I wanted that for USC. I wanted students to feel like they were making a difference, [and could] unite campus and help change the world.”Lainey Barkley, a sophomore majoring in human performance and a participant in the project, said she chose to take part in the Wells Project because it helps solve a severe global issue.“By giving up something that is not a necessity in my life, I am being a part of bringing a necessity to someone else,” Barkley said. “It is also a good reminder, each time I deny myself a drink I want, that I have been given all I need and have everything to be grateful for.”Heidi Ippolito, a senior majoring in cinema television and critical studies and a project participant, said it will be difficult to give up other beverages, but she is confident the project will have a positive impact on her life.“Missing my daily coffee and tea will certainly be a challenge, but it is a challenge that I hope will remind me of my own blessings,” Ippolito said.The Wells Project will set up information tables on Trousdale Parkway today and Wednesday. Participants will be selling shirts and food items and giving away wristbands and fliers. Participants also plan to raise awareness by carrying five-gallon jugs in a water walk from the Finger Fountain to the statue of Traveler.last_img read more

Late comeback can’t hold off No. 5 Oregon

first_imgA late comeback attempt from USC was shut down by No. 5 Oregon Saturday night, as the Ducks topped the Trojans by a score of 81-70 at the Galen Center.With 2:40 remaining in regulation, junior guard Elijah Stewart knocked down a 3-point shot that pulled the Trojans within three points of the Ducks.Oregon responded by closing the game out on a 10-2 run over the final two minutes of regulation to clinch its 14th consecutive victory against USC. The Trojans have dropped their last seven games against the Ducks in Los Angeles, and they haven’t beat Oregon at home since the 2009 season. The Trojans finished the game by missing their last four shot attempts in the contest; USC made no field goals over the final 2:40 of regulation.“That was a tough game. We played hard, but not well enough to win,” head coach Andy Enfield said. “Our guards were off tonight in their decision making and shooting. To beat a top-five team in the country, you have to play better.”Poor shooting from the field was a struggle for USC all night Saturday. The Trojans finished the game shooting 22-for-59 (37.3 percent).USC’s shooting woes may have been most evident from beyond the 3-point line. In the first half, USC shot 2-of-15 (13.3 percent) from beyond the arc. Overall, the Trojans shot 6-for-27 (22.2 percent) from distance.“When you’re 6-for-27 from three and a lot were wide open and you miss three dunks, it’s hard to beat a team like this,” Enfield said.A layup from sophomore forward Bennie Boatwright gave USC its largest lead of the night against Oregon, as the Trojans led 49-46 with just over 13 minutes remaining.“Tonight shows our growth. It shows we can play with anybody,” said freshman guard De’Anthony Melton, who finished with nine points and two steals Saturday. “We need to learn how to close out games.”As was the case for many USC shooters Saturday night, Boatwright had his share of struggles from the field. Boatwright finished the game shooting 3-of-15 (20 percent), but he did hit all eight of his free throws to finish with 15 points against Oregon.Leading the way for the Trojans was sophomore forward Chimezie Metu, who recorded a team-high 16 points Saturday. Metu finished 6-of-8 from the field while reeling in four rebounds and dishing three assists.“We have to protect the ball. We had too many turnovers,” said Stewart, who totaled 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting.USC committed a total of 16 turnovers against the Ducks after averaging 11.1 turnovers per game entering Saturday. Oregon capitalized on Trojan mistakes, as the Ducks outscored USC in points off turnovers, 23-12.Oregon junior forward Dillon Brooks finished with a game-high 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting. Brooks was 3-of-5 shooting from deep against the Trojans.Brooks finished as the game’s leading scorer despite fouling out with 3:28 remaining in regulation.Oregon sophomore guard Tyler Dorsey scored 19 points (6-of-13 shooting) and recorded five rebounds. Ducks junior forward Jordan Bell finished with a game-high 14 rebounds; he recorded a double-double as he also scored 12 points Saturday.Overall, Oregon edged USC on the glass by a margin of 39-34.With the loss, the Trojans were unable to avenge their 84-61 loss to the Ducks earlier this season on Dec. 30. USC has never upset an opponent ranked in the top five nationally at the Galen Center.Saturday’s loss also put an end to the Trojan’s five-game winning streak in Pac-12 play.USC will look to rebound in conference play as it travels to Pauley Pavilion on Saturday to take on No. 10 UCLA. The Trojans will be looking for a big upset of a top 10-ranked opponent and its fifth consecutive victory over the Bruins.last_img read more

What time does the NASCAR race start today? Schedule, TV channel for New Hampshire

first_imgThe previously postponed races at Dover and Michigan are now part of Saturday-Sunday doubleheaders at those respective tracks in August.Because New York requires people to quarantine for 14 days after traveling from one of the states impacted heavily by COVID-19 (including North Carolina), the Watkins Glen race on Aug. 16 was moved to the Daytona road course. According to The Athletic, NASCAR tried to get a quarantine waiver for its Watkins Glen races but was denied by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office.The Aug. 16 race will be the NASCAR Cup Series’ first on the road course at Daytona. The start time for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway is actually the same as originally scheduled even though the event was moved back to early August rather than late July as part of NASCAR’s updated schedule. The New Hampshire race will be shown on the same TV channel as originally scheduled, too.Due to the same coronavirus pandemic-related issues that shut down live sports in March, NASCAR created a modified schedule of races for May, June, July and August that continues today at 3 p.m. ET at the one-mile oval located in Loudon, N.H.
