The final countdown: Frogs set to conclude season in NIT Championship against Georgia Tech

The final’s berth is a first in program history.Georgia Tech defeated CSU Bakersfield 76-61, in Tuesday’s semifinal. The Yellow Jackets are led by freshman forward Josh Okogie, who is averaging 16.2 points per game, and ACC Defensive Player of the Year, center Ben Lammers. Like TCU, GT is led by a first-year coach, Josh Pastner, who was named ACC Coach of the Year this season.Both Okogie and Lammers have caught the attention TCU head coach Jamie Dixon.“Obviously his [Okogie’s] numbers are tremendous for a freshman, especially in the ACC,” Dixon said.”Unbelievable athlete and plays very hard, gets to the basket and is always trying to get fouled, gets to the free throw line, so we’ll try to keep him off the line, make him take jump shots, and keep him off the offensive boards.Lammers, GT’s center and defensive anchor, is a player that Dixon recruited when he was the head coach at Pitt.“We had recruited him and looked at him down when he was in Texas back when I was at Pitt,” Dixon said. “He is an unbelievable defensive player and he rebounds at the same time, so he does some really good things and he’s unique.”TCU will employ a similar strategy against Lammers to the one the Horned Frogs used against UCF’s 7-foot-6 inch center Tacko Fall Tuesday night.“We have to go at him like we went at Fall,” Dixon said.The Horned Frogs eventually forced UCF’s shot-blocking tall-man to foul out with a few minutes left in their semifinal matchup.“We emphasized more driving, penetrating, making decisions, and finding the open guy,” Dixon said. “I thought once we started to hit some some guys, getting some layups on dump-offs, Fall had to stay closer to his guy.”For TCU, Thursday’s game will mark the final time its seniors take the court wearing the Horned Frog purple and white. One final victory would send them sailing off into the sunset as NIT Champions.“If we’re able to do that, it would really be a dream come true for me,” said senior guard Brandon Parrish, playing in his school-record 136th game for the Horned Frogs. “Just thinking about our time here and how low some of our moments have been, for us to end on a moment so high, it would be so special. Especially for the seniors. And it would be great for our program to help our young guys to start off with success and give them the success. Give them the momentum to achieve greater things than this.”Tipoff at Madison Square Garden Thursday night is set for 7 p..m. Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major. He is the Managing Editor for TCU360, and his passions are God, family, friends, sports, and great food. TCU seniors Karviar Shepherd(32) and Brandon Parrish(11) celebrate a TCU victory against UCF.

Jailed Belgian priest and ex-editor is innocent and must be freed, says Reporters Without Borders

first_img Reporters Without Borders issued an in-depth report today on the detention in Rwanda for the past two months of former magazine editor Guy Theunis, a Belgian Catholic priest. It said he was innocent of charges of supposed genocide, that the evidence against him was “baseless” and that he was victim of a personal vendetta by a group of regime politicians. A Reporters Without Borders team visited Rwanda in early October to investigate.

His accusers say he incited ethnic hatred and denied the country’s genocide. His defenders say he is really in prison for exposing the RPR’s human rights violations.

Letter to the Editor: Good to Great?

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Subscribe Pasadena Unified School District’s mantra is “Good to Great.” Sounds good, right? Except, that while the teachers at Daniel Webster School are a highly qualified, dedicated group of educators who are passionate about the work they do with their students, they are not fairly compensated by PUSD. Many of the teachers have been at Webster for several years bringing their expertise and loyalty to countless families. Pasadena’s teachers are among the lowest paid teachers in the county, with even the highest paid teachers ranking 43 out of 47. PUSD seems to ignore the fact that we are in a teacher shortage and that they will have difficulty attracting and retaining highly qualified teachers without offering a comparable salary increase.Unfortunately, there are teachers at our school that are looking for employment elsewhere. They feel forced to leave the students, staff, and community that they love, due to financial pressures and the stressful environment that will be created by the District’s desire to transfer and reassign teachers to other school sites at will. To be a great teacher in a great school district means to be respected, valued, and compensated fairly for the demanding work that we do every day. With a shortage of teachers and a District that demonstrates little respect for its teachers, one has to wonder whether PUSD is serious about “Our Children. Learning Today. Leading Tomorrow.” faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Opinion & Columnists Letter to the Editor: Good to Great?

Reports Project Positive Climate for Economic Growth

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Market Studies, News The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Two reports issued by the Wells Fargo Economics Group both point towards a positive climate for economic growth, albeit for different reasons.The first report followed FDIC loan performance, noting cyclical improvement in loan performance and a trend favorable for credit quality.The second report commented on underwriting practices, noting, “The Comptroller’s Survey of Credit Underwriting Practices revealed that commercial and retail underwriting trends eased in 2013 compared to the earlier recovery period from 2009 to 2012. This is a plus for growth.”The Wells Fargo Economic Group found that post-2009, residential loan performance (as measured by loans that were 30-89 days overdue) dropped sharply, mirrored by falls in both GDP growth and jobs. The drop in price came as, “a sharp correction to the unusual strength and price appreciation of the housing market as well as the easing of credit standards, in the prior expansion.”However, since 2009, the group reported a gradual decline of loans overdue, falling to a five year low of 2.1 percent. The group attributes the fall in delinquent loans to, “[M]odest GDP/job growth and, most recently, the rise in home prices that has assisted some homeowners in selling their homes.”Underwriting standards also played a part in an economic climate poised for growth.The group found that commercial and retail underwriting trends eased in 2013 compared to 2009 to 2012. The eased standards are “a plus for growth,” according to the Wells Fargo Economics Group.”Competition and a better economic outlook were factors leading banks to ease credit standards,” the report said.Overall retail credit underwriting trends noted that credit standards were loosened on 22 percent  of products, unchanged in 68 percent, and were only tightened in 10 percent.Relaxed credit standards in 2013 was the third consecutive year since 2011 that the percentage of eased standards rose, according to the Economics Group report.

Memphis police officer arrested, charged with murdering man while on duty

first_imgMemphis Police Department via TwitterBy JULIA JACOBO, ABC News(MEMPHIS, Tenn.) — A Memphis police officer has been fired after he allegedly killed and kidnapped a man while on duty.Robert Howard, 30, was first reported missing after his girlfriend called police on Wednesday around 8:30 p.m., the Memphis Police Department said.He was last seen at a home on Mark Twain Street around 5 p.m. on Tuesday, his girlfriend told police. She used an app to track his cellphone, which she found near Lamar Avenue and Shelby Drive — but she didn’t find him, she said.A body, believed to Howard’s, has been recovered in the area of Second Street and the Wolf River bridge, Memphis police announced Sunday.After an investigation, police learned that Howard was allegedly taken from the home and shot by officer Patric Ferguson, 29, while Ferguson was on duty.Ferguson allegedly forced Howard into the back of his squad car and shot him with his personal handgun, police said.Ferguson and Howard knew each other, according to police. The motive is unclear.After the investigation, Ferguson was arrested and “immediately relieved of duty,” according to the police department. He had worked for the department since 2018 and was assigned to the Tillman station.Ferguson has been charged with first-degree murder, first-degree murder in perpetration of aggravated kidnapping, especially aggravated kidnapped, abuse of a corpse and fabricating and tampering with evidence.A second suspect, 28-year-old Joshua Rogers, has also been arrested and charged with accessory after the fact, abuse of a corpse and fabricating and tampering with evidence. Rogers is a friend of Ferguson’s and allegedly assisted him in relocating Howard’s body after being killed. Police did not divulge where his body was found.Ferguson has not been granted bail, and he remains in the Shelby County jail, records show. Rogers has been released on a $25,000 bond.Both Ferguson and Rogers are scheduled to appear in court Monday. It is unclear whether they have retained an attorney.“No one is above the law,” Memphis Police Director Michael Rallings said in a statement.“Knowing that a Memphis Police Officer, someone who took an oath to protect and serve, made the decision to commit this horrific crime is devastating,” Rallings said. “His actions were not that of a law enforcement officer and should not reflect on fellow officers.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
