To earn honorable mention, a student-athlete must appear on 25 percent of ballots. While the senior has had a stellar two weeks, this week could be monumental: Thanks to 17 steals over her last two contests, she sits just eight away from setting the NCAA career steals record (624).Barrs and the Cardinals are at Houston Baptist for a 7 p.m. CT tilt Wednesday before returning home Saturday for a 2 p.m. matinee against Stephen F. Austin. Lamar is riding a four-game winning streak and is a perfect 12-0 in Beaumont this season.Honorable Mention: Cassidy Barrios, Nicholls; Dominique Golighty, Abilene Christian; Victoria Miller, Northwestern State FRISCO, Texas – Lamar’s Chastadie Barrs is the Southland Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week for the sixth time this season and second-straight week, the league announced Monday.

The victories keep the Cardinals atop the league standings with a 14-1 mark in league play and 21-5 record overall.Basketball Player of the Week – Chastadie Barrs, Lamar – Sr. – Guard – DeSoto, TexasBarrs played 38 minutes in Wednesday’s 79-53 home win over UIW, dropping 16 points to go along with seven rebounds and seven assists. The senior followed it up with another 16-point effort Saturday in 40 minutes on the floor, grabbing a career-high 17 rebounds in a 72-47 road win at Corpus Christi.Prior to last Wednesday’s game, Barrs was named to the Naismith Defender of the Year Watch List.
“I was proud of how our guys fought,” said Hill. “It was probably really symbolic with the way that our season was. It was a fight. It wasn’t always the prettiest thing but it was gritty the whole time. We left it all out there.” “It was a typical tournament game. We had a couple of chances to win the game they just happened to get the swing at the right time.” After Reid Bourque struck out for the second out of the inning, Payton Harden singled to left field as Maxwell was forced to hold up at third on the hard hit shallow single that loaded the bases. Meanwhile, Peyton McLemore, the Cowboys’ fourth reliever of the game, was rolling along by keeping the Buckeyes off the bases through the 12th inning, but in the 13th, Ohio State drew a lead off walk that was followed by a sacrifice bunt to move the runner to second, then a grounder to third for the second out. OSU center fielder Ridge Winand then placed a single up the middle to score Conner Pohl from second to give the Buckeyes a 9-8 lead. Offensively, the Cowboys finished the game with 10 hits, led by Harden’s three knocks while Selman and Maxwell each had two hits. Selman also knocked in three runs while Dickerson finished with two RBIs. “It was a memorable game,” said head coach Justin Hill. “We just came up on the wrong side of it. I thought both relievers at the back end of the game pitched really well. It’s a shame either one of them had to factor into the decision. Neither team got any offense going in the seventh, but in the eighth, the Buckeyes rallied to tie the game. McNeese (35-26) led 8-5 heading into the eighth inning but four walks and a couple of singles enabled the Buckeyes (36-26) to tie the game at 8-8 before Cowboy reliever Brad Kincaid, the third pitcher of that inning, got the final two outs. NASHVILLE – McNeese’s magical season came to an end on Saturday afternoon when the Cowboys dropped a 9-8, 13-inning dogfight to Ohio State in the elimination game of the 2019 NCAA Baseball Nashville Regional at Vanderbilt’s Hawkins Field. But the Buckeyes struck again with the long ball in the sixth when Dominic Canzone hit a two-out blast over the left field monster wall to knot the game up 5-5. After that home run, Pohl followed with a single in what would be the final batter Cowboy starter Rhett Deaton would face. Ueckert entered and got the Buckeyes to ground out into a double play then struck out Dezenzo to keep the Ohio State rally short lived. “It was really an unorthodox start to the game for both teams,” said Hill. “We had two errors on one play in the first inning. At one point the score was 2-1 and neither team had a hit. It didn’t make much sense. “We had to go to the bullpen a little early. I thought Cayne Ueckert did a good job. When he came into the ballgame, he settled things down and got a big double play and stretched the game out for us.” Nate Fisbeck followed with a hard hit grounder to second base that was fielded up the middle and the throw barely got Fisbeck at first to end the inning. Bourque followed with an infield single but was then picked off first base for the second out of the inning. Harden walked, and after a Buckeye pitching change, Fisbeck singled which advanced Harden to third. Rasbeary then walked to load the bases and Selman popped a two-run single to center field to score Harden and Fisbeck to make it an 8-5 McNeese lead. McLemore (1-2) suffered the loss after matching a season-high with five innings pitched and allowed just one run and two hits, walked three and struck out one. McNeese scored two more in the third inning when Harden led off with a walk and eventually scored on a fielder’s choice, then Maxwell hit a two-out double to score Clayton Rasbeary to make it a 4-1 lead with just one hit on the board. The Cowboys opened the game up in the bottom of the sixth when Gonzales got things started with a double and scored on a throwing error after advancing to third as the throw attempt at to third base went into the Cowboys’ dugout and allowed Gonzales to score to put McNeese back on top 6-5. McNeese answered in the bottom of the fifth when Fisbeck led off with a walk, advanced to second after tagging on a long fly out by Rasbeary, went to third off a Shane Selman single to left field, then scored on Jake Dickerson’s grounder that put the Cowboys up 5-4. The Cowboys had a golden opportunity in the bottom of the 10th inning when Carson Maxwell led off with a double into the right-center gap. Julian Gonzales then flied out and Dustin Duhon was intentionally walked to put the runners on first and second. McNeese went down in order in the bottom of the 13th as OSU reliever Andrew Magno retired the last 10 Cowboy batters he faced with six of those on strike outs. OSU reliever Andrew Magno (5-3) picked up the win after throwing 7.1 innings and giving up one run and five hits, walked two and struck out 12. Ohio State took advantage of two, first inning McNeese errors that happened on the same play and led 1-0 after the top of the first, but McNeese came back and took advantage of a Buckeye error and a couple of wild pitches to grab a 2-1 lead after one. OSU used the big stick to get back into the game, first on a fourth inning, two-run home run by shortstop Zach Dezenzo to trim the McNeese lead to 4-3, then in the fifth inning, left fielder Brady Cherry led off with a solo homer to tie things up at 4-4. The Buckeyes finished with 11 hits and were led by Cherry’s 3-for-5 game.

TOTTENHAM are reportedly targeting a double swoop for midfield prospect Taylor Booth and his younger brother Zach.The Daily Mail claim American Taylor impressed Jose Mourinho’s staff in December with a standout performance for Bayern Munich against Spurs in the Uefa Youth League.1 Tottenham are keeping tabs on Bayern Munich starlet Taylor BoothCredit: Getty Images – GettyThe Bundesliga champions U19s claimed a 3-0 win over the youthful north Londoners to knock them out of the competition with the 18-year-old claiming two assists.Taylor, who turns 19 at the end of this month, was snapped up by Bayern from Real Salt Lake, who still have his younger brother Zach on their books.The USA U19 international, who boasts the ability to play across the centre of midfield, is under contract with the Bavarians until 2022.Meanwhile, Spurs have also registered an interest in Taylor’s sibling Zach, who is still at Real Salt Lake’s academy.The 16-year-old, who has been capped by USA at U17 level, had a trial at Tottenham before Christmas and the club are continuing to monitor his progress.But Mourinho faces a fight from Leicester City, Norwich and Fulham following the midfielder’s driving performances during a tournament at St George’s Park in February.Zach put scouts for Premier League clubs on red alert after he captained USA U17s against Spain, England and Denmark.Most Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’ExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticTottenham and Mourinho are on the hunt for bargains this summer with the coronavirus pandemic decimating the club’s transfer budget.The Portuguese manager is said to be close to agreeing a reunion with his former player Willian.The Chelsea winger is set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer with his contract expiring in June.Chelsea forward Willian agrees to Tottenham transfer with reps having already discussed move with José Mourinho, says Richard Keys
The Penrith Panthers have taught the Newcastle Knights a football lesson, winning 32-10 in front of 13,682 frustrated and wet Novocastrians on Sunday at Hunter Stadium.Led by a good display of cohesion from halves Jamie Soward and Peter Wallace, the Panthers proved superior to the Knights in a fixture that could only be described as four seasons in one game. The lightning and thunder couldn’t stop the Panthers as they went on a six-tries-to-two blitz.Penrith were forced to play a man down for more than half the game, as late in the first half prop Nigel Plum was penalised and put on-report when pressuring Jarrod Mullen on a last-tackle kicking play. Adding insult to injury, Plum managed to collide square with the five-eighth’s shoulder – knocking himself out cold and ending his afternoon.While the Knights fell for their seventh loss of the season as Penrith recorded their fifth win, Newcastle debutants Joseph Tapine and Pat Vaivai played admirably in a beaten side. Several Knights players may find themselves in reserve grade next weekend after poor performances across the park.
New recruit Aidan Sezer starred for the home team, scoring two tries and stepping up in the absence of Blake Austin who was forced off the pitch midway through the match with a medial ligament injury.Played in 36-degree temperatures, the game was always going to be won by the team with the most mental toughness, and that was the advantage the Raiders had in the dying moments.A final-play try to iron man Shaun Fensom sealed the deal after a tense final 20 minutes, which saw both teams locked up late in the game.The Panthers played tough and scored some nice tries with silky smooth passing, particularly on the edges where the skill of their back row was obvious.Trent Merrin, the game’s other star recruit, was great for Penrith, doing plenty of the tough stuff in the middle and scoring a nice try.However it wasn’t enough for the visitors, the Raiders holding out late thanks to Sezer and a dominant forward pack. The Panthers opened their account with a penalty from in front, but the Raiders hit back soon after, and their first try of the season had Blake Austin written all over it. The star five-eighth showed up a number of times in a movement that ended with Edrick Lee sneaking over in the corner after a late Josh Papalii offload.The Canberra pivot was at it again in the 18th minute, starting off a length-of-the-field movement with a half break earning a penalty, before finishing off the set with a tough try down the other end of the field. Skipper Jarrod Croker again converted to take Canberra out to a 12-2 lead.Midway through the first half it was looking like the Raiders could run away with it, but a long break from Penrith flyer Will Smith sparked a fight-back. Just 22 minutes into his Panthers career, Merrin put the Panthers back onto the scoreboard, diving over after a superb short ball from James Segeyaro. Sezer then hit back for the Raiders, combining brilliantly with Papalli and Jarrod Croker to get his first try in the lime green. And the scoring see-saw ride continued, Peta Hiku the next recruit to cross the line late in the first half after some silky smooth passing down the left edge Penrith attack.That score and Jamie Soward’s subsequent conversion and late penalty had the game locked up at 16-all at half-time. The Raiders couldn’t have started the second half any worse, conceding a number of penalties before allowing in a try and seeing their star player Austin limping from the field. The Panthers scored through Josh Mansour after keeping the ball alive nicely, but the knee injury to Austin was a more disastrous blow to Canberra. The Raiders brought on Kurt Baptiste to cover for their playmaking loss and over the ensuing 10-minute period the Raiders covered nicely for Austin. Sezer was forced to step up and that he certainly did, dragging a number of opposition players over the line to bring the Raiders back level with half an hour remaining. That score would be a double blow to Penrith with star hooker Segeyaro forced from the field with a fractured arm. Both teams engaged in an arm wrestle, as well as some push and shove over the next few passages before Croker broke the deadlock with a couple of penalty goals to take the Raiders out to a four-point lead before Fensom’s try finished off the contest. Canberra Raiders 30 (Sezer 2, Lee, Austin, Fensom tries; Croker 5 goals) defeated Penrith Panthers 22 (Merrin, Hiku, Mansour; Soward 5 goals) at GIO Stadium. Crowd: 11,297.
There will be eight teams participating which includes Group A-Vanuatu (VAN),Fiji (FIJ),Papua New Guinea (PNG),New Caledonia (NCL) while Group B includes, Tahiti (TAH), Solomon Islands (SOL), New Zealand (NZL), Cook Islands (COK).The PNG team has submitted their final list to the Oceania Football Federation (OFC) last week with some fascinating inclusions, and omissions to the team.The final 19 men team named include: 1.Jonathan Pole, 2.Kenneth Pilailo, 3.Darius James, 4.Edward Joshua, 5.Gabby Yanum, 6.Peter Dabinyaba Jr, 7.Moses Tupa, 8.Gregory Togubai, 9.Stahl Gubag, 10. Jonah Iha,11. Giwi Simon,12.George Korei r,13. Alu Awi ,14.Jaggen Nalu , 15.Oswald Bade Forward, 16.Punchimil Kepiniu ,17.Winston Somasi , 18.Felix Komolong,19.Edward Lakae and (Coach) Peter GunembaJust like Vanuatu with Kalo, Papua New Guinea are able to call on experience though it’s at the back where Felix Komolong does his best work.The lofty defender played every minute of the Kapul’s five OFC Nations Cup games in June and will be keen to keep Papua New Guinea football on the tips of tongues across Oceania once again with the U-20 team.This time it’s Felix taking on the role of ‘most experienced’ member of the squad but he’s shown poise beyond his years on the pitch already this year and there is no doubt he will step up into the leadership role with ease. Taking charge of the squad is Peter Gunemba and while this will be his first foray at the helm of a national team, the C Licence-holder is the father of Raymond and Meagan Gunemba who are the perfect product of their father’s abilities.The output from relatively unknown club Eriku Wawens, which is contributing three players to this squad, along with Rapatau, and one each from Chakalau and Bugandi is a sign that the power players of PNG football aren’t the only ones focusing on developing football.
These are the market movements made so far by the 20 First clubs and what they are looking for reinforce In this winter market. Clubs are sorted by order of classification. BARCELONA: IT DOES NOT BUY, IT DOES SELL: ALEÑÁ, VIDAL TODIBO …Barça has no intention of strengthening. Aleñá has already left, assigned to Betis, and the case of Arturo Vidal is about to be resolved, which is most likely to go to Inter. Milan is interested in the transfer of Todibo. Riqui Puig could have the option to get on the first team.REAL MADRID: DO NOT DATE AND LOOK FOR OUTPUT TO MARIANO AND BRAHIMMadrid does not plan to strengthen in January. Instead, his intention is to reduce staff with the departure of two players who do not count for Zidane: Mariano and Brahim. Mariano’s problem is his high salary (4 million net). Brahim is looking for an assignment.SEVILLE: THE OBJECTIVE IS TO FILE A 9 AND DRAXLERThe priority would be to hire a 9 and, if possible, to be versatile and also play on the left side of the attack. Draxler (PSG) is one of the preferred options by Monchi.

Saponjic and a right side (Vrsaljko or Arias) can leave.REAL SOCIETY: RUBÉN PARDO AND SAGNAN IS IN THE OUTPUT RAMPLa Real has no intention of moving in the winter market. Imanol understands that the template is more than complete and trusts them. In addition, it is pending to recover the injured Illarramendi, Zurutuza and Aritz Elustondo. Rubén Pardo and Sagnan can leave.GETAFE: EARRINGS FROM THE REMOVAL OF BERGARA FOOTBALLWhen Bergara confirms his impending withdrawal from football, Getafe could consider covering his hole. He loved Aleñá, who preferred to go to Betis. Enric Gallego has many offers from Second. The excess of left sides can open the door to Raul Carnero.ATHLETIC: FEAR THAT THE WEST HAM REMOVES YOU FROM UNAI NÚÑEZThe only novelty would be for Unai Núñez to go to West Ham for the 30 million of its clause. He has no plans to sign. If Unai Núñez left, he would pull the subsidiary, with Dani Vivian, or recover Nolaskoian, on loan at Deportivo. Transfer to Ganea is sought.VALENCIA: PRIORITY IS THE ARRIVAL OF CANCELThe Celades team looks for a right back and the priority is Cancelo (Manchester City), which was already in Valencia. The che club is also open to other market options in the midfield. Destination to Thierry Correia is sought. Nephew could leave.I RAISED: NO MARGIN FOR THE SALARIAL BUMPERThe Levante cannot sign because it has the quota covered with a salary cap. As no exit is planned or planned to be made, it does not expect any market movement. The only option is to leave a player and, in that case, replace his position.VILLARREAL: FERNANDO ROIG SAYS YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THIS MARKETFernando Roig said at the shareholders meeting that the January market is not interested at this moment. Consider that the template was done well in summer and do not have to touch it in winter. They would only sign if an important player came out. POMEGRANATE: VALLEJO AND WELL INTERESTED AND GOT ADRIÁN RAMOSPretend three reinforcements. A central, a left side and a forward. Vallejo sounds, Real Madrid player on loan at Wolverhampton, and Pozo (Sevilla), who was already in Granada last season.

They have problems in defense, where they are lacking in troops. They also want a midfielder who believes play and a forward with goal. If a striker comes another will come out, because he has four.MAJORCA: A LEFT SIDE AND AN EXTREME RIGHTMallorca wants to be reinforced in January with a left side, a right end and possibly a forward, depending on the performance of Cucho Hernández after his injury. They could leave if they find Trajkovski, Chavarría and Alex Alegría.CELTIC: NOLITO RETURNS TO BE THE MOST CODED PARTHe plans to sign to one extreme and Nolito is again the most coveted piece.For the moment, nothing more.

They are looking for an assignment to Pipa, 21-year-old right-back.
The telephone they have in their hands is a very dangerous pollutant or at least that is what a study carried out by the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences of the University of Surrey shows. This study tells that with the single battery of a mobile phone 600,000 liters of water can be contaminated.It also provides other data such that each high-end phone releases about 95 kilos of CO2 into the atmosphere. And is that within each ‘smartphone’ there are about 40 toxic materials such as arsenic, zinc, lead, cadmium or mercury.Inside the phones there are also valuable materials (although only a few milligrams), but for example with 50 mobile phones you could get enough gold to make a wedding ring. “Although the mobile phone contains some very toxic materials, 90% of its components are reusable,” says one of those responsible for Back Market, a company that takes advantage of all those components that can be reused from a phone mobile. In each mobile phone there are 40 polluting materials All the pieces that an iPhone contains. Image: Back Market
The photomontage of Mauro ReinierThe Reinier family had so much desire that the official commitment of Madrid arrived for the remainder of the season and six more than Mauro could not stop showing off among his closest relatives of a document sent to his mobile phone during a wait they were made eternal. It was about a photo montage of his son dressed as a Real Madrid player. A close-up, in the style of the chips that appear on the club’s website, with smiling Reinier … and the 2018-19 season shirt, not that of the 2019-20. Mauro didn’t know that detail, but he didn’t care either. He was drooling imagining the crack that he, in support of the coaches of the team quarry like Flamengo, forged based on his experience at the highest level of futsal. 19 Reinier’s father is also the main cause of his son’s Real Madrid, who as a child encouraged to watch the matches of the white club. Moreover, I put videos of several of the players who raised the Bernabéu, among them Zidane, who is expected to be his coach in the medium term. That’s why Reinier will see in Zizou something more than a ‘boss’: an idol the one he imitated in his first kicks. Mauro knows very well what elite sport is, not in vain he has experienced it from within, and values as nobody the early success of his crack. He was world champion of futsal with Brazil in 1985 in Spain, in a discipline in which he was recognized as the best of his country in 1983. In ours he lived three years because his career brought him here. The dream of Reinier Jesus (18 years old), that came true Yesterday afternoon with the official announcement of his signing for Real Madrid, it is not only an illusion of a kid. So is his whole family, that he was waiting for the moment with the desire of whom the opportunity of his life comes. Y surely who best represents that feeling is his father, Mauro Brasília. Reinier’s family started the process weeks ago involving a change of country and continent. From Spain, Several people advise you in the search for a new home in Madrid, where they will land when the player concludes his participation in the Colombian Pre-Olympic. And they have got to work with the language, studying Spanish at their home in Rio de Janeiro. Reinier, meanwhile, with the same teacher as them, began to do so in the concentration of the Sub-23 in the Comary Farm. A talent and an applied guy …
