Report: UCF frat forced pledge to use cocaine for initiation

first_img(Orlando, FL) — A University of Central Florida fraternity has been placed on disciplinary suspension for the remainder of the semester as well as the upcoming spring semester for allegedly forcing a pledge to snort cocaine.According to a UCF incident report, Sigma Chi members blindfolded a pledge on Oct. 26 and forced him to use the drug to be initiated.The chapter attempted to appeal the suspension, but was unsuccessful.UCF officials released the following statement on the incident:“At UCF, our top priority is the safety and wellbeing of our students. Student organizations that endanger their members and violate the university’s code of conduct must be held accountable. Hazing in any form is unacceptable. We are thankful to the chapter members and others who had the courage to speak up so the university could investigate. UCF plans to bring chapter leaders together to discuss new ways to reinforce their commitment to Greek values. University leaders also are planning more frequent training to develop and strengthen up-and-coming chapter leaders who will step in when experienced chapter presidents and board members graduate. UCF offers resources to prevent hazing, including bystander intervention training; an anti-hazing webpage and online tutorials; and required workshops for freshmen, transfer students and leaders of Greek-letter fraternities and sororities. There are also multiple ways to report hazing:UCF, which is investigating, says hazing in any form is unacceptable, and it thanks those who came forward.The frat is already on suspension for a party at a resort in the Keys that led to police having to be called to help remove the students.last_img read more

WBB : Syracuse still trying to perfect defense in final stretch of season

first_imgIt sounded like a good plan. One that would elevate Syracuse from an NCAA tournament outsider to tournament participant. Increase intensity on defense, force turnovers and then convert to points on offense.As the season’s end rapidly approaches, though, the pressure defense hasn’t panned out quite as flawlessly as the Orange would’ve hoped. While it has created opportunities in some games, it has fizzled in others. Overall, SU’s pressure defense has had its ups and downs in a rocky season.‘I think we’re doing pretty well with it,’ guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas said. ‘We’re not forcing as many turnovers as we would like to. But we’re getting steals out of it. When we come and we press teams, we’re getting what we want out of it. They’re slowing the ball down, and they’re making some bad decisions.’Though the full-court press that head coach Quentin Hillsman introduced at the start of the season has forced some turnovers, it still hasn’t provided the answer Syracuse was looking for to make it a member of the Big East’s elite. Typically, when the Orange sets up its defense, it falls back into a 2-3 zone, just as it has for the last several seasons. Every once in a while, Hillsman will call for the press to catch opponents off guard, but SU still finds itself struggling in conference play. Syracuse (14-9, 3-6 Big East) will have its next opportunity to continue to improve its pressure defense when it plays South Florida (12-11, 4-5) on Saturday at 1 p.m. in the Carrier Dome.SU sits in 11th place in the Big East in steals with 9.1 per game. In Syracuse’s last game against lowly Providence, the Friars notched nine steals while SU managed to get only four. But on a night when Providence performed poorly on offense and Syracuse shot lights out from the field, SU’s pressure defense wasn’t needed as the Orange cruised to an 80-54 victory.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textStill, four steals is less than what SU expects to get, regardless of whether it’s playing the press or a zone defense. And it’s clear that when Syracuse does force turnovers, wins come more easily.Against Pittsburgh on Jan. 7, the Orange forced the Panthers into 23 turnovers, leading to 23 points in an easy win. Down at Seton Hall, the Pirates committed 14 turnovers, which created 25 points for Syracuse. It’s those types of games, Hillsman said, that show how pivotal the press can be when it’s working right.‘It’s been good. Obviously, against Seton Hall, I think our pressure defense won the game for us,’ Hillsman said. ‘Down at Boise State, that game it won the game for us. Then against UConn, in the first half, it kept us in the game and kept us with the opportunity to win the game.’Perhaps the biggest issue hampering the Orange’s ability to use the press more consistently and effectively is SU’s poor play on the offensive end. All season — with the exception of its game against the Friars in which it shot nearly 58 percent — Syracuse has struggled shooting. Too often, the Orange’s shortcomings on offense have prevented it from setting up its press.And when Syracuse does have the ball, it’s also turning it over too many times. The Orange is 12th in the conference in turnover margin as a result.Guard Elashier Hall is second on the team in steals with 36 and said that despite the high number of turnovers her team is committing, it hasn’t been frustrating that her defensive effort is essentially being negated.‘The more steals I get, the more chances we get to convert,’ Hall said. ‘Even when we don’t convert as well as we would want to, the opportunities are still there. It’s one thing to not even have the opportunities, but to have the opportunities and sometimes not convert is better than not having them at all.’Hall said that an increased effort on the defensive end of the floor is what can take Syracuse’s defense to the next level. And the Orange needs that to happen to get back on track heading into the postseason.For now, there’s still work to be done for the pressure defense to work as well as SU expected.‘We haven’t risen as a pressure team,’ Tyson-Thomas said. ‘But I think we’ll get to that point.’ Comments Published on February 1, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: | @chris_isemancenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

AUDIO: Delta Queens Coach Praises NWFL Board, Sets Sights On NWPL Title

first_imgAudio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume. Delta Queens coach Clifford Chukwuma has hailed the Nigeria Women Football League board led by Aisha Falode, saying that the Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) has improved a lot this season.The regular season – unlike in the past – ran smoothly without any walk over and the media interest in the league also increased to a large extent.And only last week Wednesday (16 August), the first ever NWPL Super Four Championships draw was conducted in a ceremony that was attended by the President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Melvin Pinnick.“I must tell you it’s been encouraging. There’s a lot of improvement. (As for) refereeing I have never got any course to complain, so we are really happy the way things are going,” Chukwuma stated at the NWPL Super 4 draw ceremony in Lagos.Delta Queens are one of four teams that will clash in Benin City, Edo State for the season-ending Super Four tournament which has been scheduled for 11-16 September.For a team that was in the fifth position in Group B by the end of the first round, it was really surprising to see them finish the regular season as Group leaders – overtaking Nasarawa Amazons in the process. However, it was thanks to their improved showing which saw them remain unbeaten in the second round.Nonetheless, they now have Bayelsa Queens, Rivers Angels and Nasarawa Amazons to wrestle for the title.“There is no intimidation. The four teams are good enough. We are four good teams, the margin between the four teams is not wide, so I think we are good enough to play among them, we are good enough to win the league,” he asserts.

South Africa’s 2010 World Cup tarnished by findings

first_imgA hearing into “shameful” collusion by construction companies that led to bid rigging and price fixing on 2010 World Cup projects opened on Wednesday, tarnishing the legacy of South Africa’s historic tournament that was initially praised as a glowing success.A tribunal is being asked to confirm fines totalling 1.46 billion rand ($147 million) for 15 companies which agreed to “rigged” projects in the general construction industry in South Africa between 2006 and 2011.Work on World Cup stadiums is included in the findings by the Competition Commission, which revealed wrongdoing by the country’s biggest building firms.A lawyer representing the commission said there was “a shameful pattern of collusion” by the companies, leading to inflated prices on projects like the $730 million Cape Town Stadium.last_img read more

Whicker: Your 2018 ‘most valuable’ MLB awards

Well, it appears Tina Fey and Amy Poulter are still caught in traffic, so let’s give out the baseball awards right now.Note: The “Valuable” in Most Valuable Player does not pertain to your fantasy team.MVP: Christian Yelich, the pride of Westlake Village, was the best September player in several years. His efforts won the NL Central for Milwaukee. The Red Sox had everything but power and J.D. Martinez brought it. But Martinez was largely a DH, and MVPs should play both halves of innings. Teammate Mookie Betts hit .346 and slugged .640 and showed you could do that without striking out 100 times.BEST PLAYER: Mike Trout was Gold Glove-caliber in center field, was on base 46 percent of the time and hit 39 home runs while being intentionally walked 25 times. Yelich nearly became the first NL Triple Crown winner in 81 years (Joe Medwick). CY YOUNG: Tampa Bay’s Blake Snell topped the AL with 21 wins and took the ERA title by an entire run. He also was 9-0 with a 1.17 ERA after the All-Star break. The Mets’ Jacob deGrom lost nine quality starts and still went 10-9 with the only league ERA under 2.00. But, no, the “W” isn’t dead. The next four NL pitchers in the ERA rankings went a combined 70-21.MANAGER: Despite all the handiwork by Alex Cora in Boston, Oakland’s Bob Melvin should be unanimous or close to it. More people thought the A’s would be closer to 65-97 than 97-65. With Brian Snitker bringing the kinds of minor league battle scars that today’s instant managers never absorb, Atlanta reversed its 72-90 record from last year and won the NL East.ROOKIE: The Yankees’ Miguel Andujar was second in the AL in doubles, was in the Top 10 in four other major categories and wore a third-base glove as his team won 100 games. He probably deserves this award, but Shohei Ohtani’s novelty act was too impressive to deny. Most of the thoroughbreds were in the NL, where Atlanta’s Ronald Acuña Jr. barely edges Washington’s Juan Soto. The two dynamic outfielders were virtually identical. “Make it a ‘co,’’’ Braves coach Ron Washington said.EXECUTIVE: Boston’s Dave Dombrowski runs a team that won 108 games and a prospect-laden franchise, and he risked his neck by firing John Farrell so he could hire Cora. Milwaukee’s David Stearns, 33, had a spectacular season, acquiring Yelich and Lorenzo Cain. The Brewers needed every phone call Stearns made to overtake the Cubs in the NL East.COMEBACK PLAYER: Andrew Heaney, the Angels’ lefty, pitched 180 innings and had a 1.200 WHIP in a solid comeback season. Matt Kemp, the prodigal Dodger, made the All-Star team after coming west in what appeared to be a salary dump. Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.BREAKOUT PLAYER: Miles Mikolas hadn’t pitched in the big leagues since 2014 but returned from Japan to go 18-4, with a 2.83 ERA, for the Cardinals. Blake Treinen saved 38 games for the Athletics in his first sustained chance to own the ninth.COMEDOWN PLAYER: Adam Duvall was sputtering in Cincinnati, got traded to Atlanta, hit .132 and wasn’t on the postseason roster. He hit 31 homers in 2017. Michael Fulmer was the AL Rookie of the Year two years ago, faded to 3-12 this year.MIS-MANAGER OF THE YEAR: The Orioles were bad but not 47-115 bad, and Buck Showalter was fired for it. Dave Martinez might not have been the reason Washington fled the NL East race, but he certainly was no Dusty Baker.WIND FARM AWARD: The Phillies’ Cesar Hernandez fanned 155 times yet produced only 15 homers and a .718 OPS. In Baltimore, the sad decline of Chris Davis continues apace. He struck out 192 times, walked 41 times and had a .539 OPS with 16 homers.BEST FREE AGENT: Martinez’s 43 homers and 130 RBIs fulfilled Boston’s monster investment. Cain, after he signed with Milwaukee, showed again why he’s one of baseball’s most underrated.WORST FREE AGENT: The Cubs’ Tyler Chatwood signed for three years, $38 million and had a hideous season, with 95 walks in 103-2/3 innings and a 1.840 WHIP. Alex Cobb signed a four-year, $57 million pact with Baltimore and started it by going 5-15 with a 4.90 ERA season.STRONGEST TREND: The strikeout. There were more of them than there were hits (8.48 per game to 8.44, according to Baseball Reference). That’s an all-time high in strikeouts, but baseball has set a K record in each of the past 11 seasons. An intervention, with hours of Tony Gwynn videos, is needed.

I know he was eagerly wanting his first victory in the Daytona 500, but today we just weren’t going to be denied.”The whole (Gibbs) family — they did so much for me over the course of my career.
