The game ended in a 2 – 2 draw but the 19-year-old was on parade for the entire duration of the match that was played without the fans. Sparta Rotterdam had Okoye to thank as his superb save late on was enough to prevent the team from losing the match, despite playing most part of the game with ten men. Okoye will be hoping to be a part of the first team when they start their Eredivisie campaign on Friday.

Batesville, IN—Dr. Tom Deters of Brookville, Ind. was recently awarded the Special Caregiver Award by the Indiana Rural Health Association (IRHA). This honor brings much-deserved recognition to those who provide exceptional care to people in rural communities.Dr. Deters isn’t the kind of doctor you’d typically find in a hospital setting. He holds a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, however back in the early 1980s, he saw a significant need in his community which led him to switch careers. As an addictions therapist, he has spent decades working to fight substance abuse in Southeastern Indiana.Dr. Deters has helped countless individuals, groups and families through the grips of addiction in his work at Community Mental Health Center, Fayette Regional and now Margaret Mary Health. He is still active in his therapy practice, conducting psychosocial evaluations for Ripley County Courts Addiction and Drug Services program and being part of the founding members of the Stayin’ Alive coalition in Franklin County.“We are proud to have Dr. Deters as part of our team,” said Tim Putnam, President and CEO of Margaret Mary Health. “His dedication to the people he serves and the community is unwavering. His passion for impacting as many lives as he can in a positive way is what makes him exactly the type of individual who should be recognized as a special caregiver.”

The Nigerian, aged 38, is currently going through his PGA training course and hopes to qualify for the EuroPro Tour via Q-School in the next year. Odemwingie, a 3 handicapper, passed his playing test, where you must shoot 15-over or better over 36 holes at The Belfry. The former Nigerian international made it with the final putt, which he compared to scoring a last-minute free kick. “I made it with the last putt so it’s as good as scoring a last-minute free kick taking 3 points home,” he told Sky Sports. “I’m ready to make some noise as a player as well I think. “So within the next one year I have a plan to do the qualifying school on the EuroPro Tour. “I think it’s achievable, I’ve improved as a golfer as well so I think there is a player in me. “Last year it was 8 [his handicap], worked on the short game a lot. It became 3.” Whilst it’s probably unrealistic that he does begin competing on the EuroPro Tour, the former striker hopes that at “minimum” he is able to help coach players from Nigeria and Russia, where his roots lie. “Raise a few good golfers, create opportunities for golfers from the countries I came from and one day hopefully they will be saying ‘yeah he got me into the game and now I’m a tour player’,” he said. “So that’s the minimum I want from the game. “I’ll try as a player but it’s more likely looking like from the coaching aspect of it.”

(REUTERS) – Jonny Bairstow struck a sublime unbeaten 60 to lead England to a dominant nine-wicket victory over South Africa in the first Twenty20 international in Southampton yesterday.South Africa chose to bat and laboured to 142 for three before Bairstow and Alex Hales shared a superb unbroken second-wicket partnership of 98 to guide the hosts to their target with 5.3 overs to spare.“I’m trying to progress all the time and I played a few shots I didn’t have a few months ago,” said man-of-the-match Bairstow.“I’m feeling good, I was really pleased. The lads bowled outstandingly well; to take wickets up front is what we wanted and then our spinners tied them down.”David Willey bowled JJ Smuts with the first ball of the match and South Africa quickly subsided to 32 for three.Captain AB de Villiers (65 not out) and Farhaan Behardien (64 not out) shared an unbroken stand of 110 but they never broke free from the shackles imposed by a disciplined England attack and the total always looked below-par.England openers Jason Roy and Hales plundered 45 off the first four overs before Roy, playing a risky reverse sweep, was trapped lbw by Andile Phehlukwayo for 28.But Hales (47 not out) and Bairstow looked completely untroubled by a toothless South Africa attack, hitting four sixes and nine fours between them to cruise to their target.Both teams were playing their first matches since the Champions Trophy in which hosts England lost to Pakistan in the semi-finals and top-ranked South Africa failed to advance from the group stage.“It is difficult to sum up the performance. The result doesn’t look good for us. We lost our way at the start, had to rebuild and we were 20-30 runs short in the end, which probably cost us,” de Villiers said.The second game of the three-match series is in Taunton tomorrow.
According to reports this morning the governing body were unwilling to offer the Nenagh native an extension to his central contract due to his age, much to the displeasure of Munster.Ryan turns 34 in December, but the province are believed to be unhappy with the reasoning given Jamie Heaslip – who is one week older – had his contract extended last month.The second row is set to link up with Ronan O’Gara at Racing 92 from the start of next season.

Michigan State lost nine games by mid-February, but it won five straight to close out the season on a high note and earn a share of the Big Ten regular season title. The Spartans knocked off other contenders like Iowa, Maryland, Penn State, and Ohio State during that stretch, so bettors are back aboard the Michigan State bandwagon.Cassius Winston is knocking down 43.2 percent of his threes and leads the Spartans with 18.6 points per game, and big men Xavier Tillman Sr. and Aaron Henry have been playing better in the paint. The defense has been sharp, ranking third in the nation in effective field goal percentage, but the Spartans will likely have to face a very difficult opponent in the quarterfinals. Ohio State is rated the eighth-best team in the nation according to Ken Pomeroy’s numbers, and the Buckeyes are likely to top Purdue in the second round on Thursday.Maryland was in the driver’s seat in the Big Ten last month with a 12-3 record in conference play, but the Terrapins dropped three of their final five games to miss out on an outright Big Ten regular season title. That led to the Terps being a No. 3 seed due to their sub-.500 record against Wisconsin and Michigan State.Jalen Smith has been one of the best offensive weapons in the Big Ten this season. Smith is averaging a double-double with 15.5 and 10.5 rebounds per game, and he is hitting 53.8 percent of his field goals and 36.8 percent of his threes. Anthony Cowan Jr. can create his own shots too, and his ability to help in other ways makes Maryland dangerous.MORE: Tracking every automatic bid for 2020 NCAA TournamentThe No. 1 seed in the Big Ten Tournament is Wisconsin, but the oddsmakers don’t believe in the Badgers. They will only be a short favorite per the CBB betting odds against either Michigan or Rutgers in the quarterfinals, and this team is rated behind four other teams in the conference according to Pomeroy.Greg Gard has done an excellent job getting the most out of this team. This season could have gone off the rails after Kobe King made the decision to transfer in late January, but the Badgers closed out the campaign with eight straight wins. Micah Potter has been excellent despite missing 10 games in the regular season, hitting 52.8 percent from the floor and 45.1 percent from beyond the arc, and he has been the best sixth man in the conference.The Wolverines may be the No. 9 seed in the Big Ten Tournament, but there are plenty of believers in Juwan Howard and Michigan. They are tied with Wisconsin as the team with the third-lowest odds to win the conference tournament, and their metrics show that this team is rather unlucky to be 19-12. Michigan hammered conference winners Creighton and Gonzaga in non-conference play, and the Wolverines will be sizable favorites against Rutgers in the second round. There’s no disputing that the Big Ten was the best conference in college basketball this season. The quality of competition meant that no team could emerge as head and shoulders better than the rest in the conference, and that has led to a veritable logjam when it comes to Big Ten Tournament betting odds.At least nine teams will make the NCAA Tournament, and those nine teams all have odds of 10-1 or less to earn the Big Ten’s automatic bid into March Madness. MORE: SN’s latest March Madness Field of 68 bracket projectionsIowa and Ohio State are each 8-1 to win the Big Ten Tournament, but both teams will have to win four games in four days to claim the title. The Hawkeyes have a Wooden Player of the Year contender in Luka Garza, while the Buckeyes are seen as one of the top-10 teams in the country by Pomeroy’s ratings. There is considerably more value in Ohio State at these odds, as the Buckeyes have a strong interior defense and they shoot well from distance.Rutgers is poised to make its first NCAA Tournament appearance in nearly three decades, but the Scarlet Knights aren’t likely to advance past Friday in the Big Ten Tournament. They will face Michigan on Thursday, and if they win that game, they will face a rested Wisconsin side on Friday. This is the best defense in the conference, but the Scarlet Knights have some trouble scoring.
DES MOINES — The 2019 Iowa legislature convenes on Monday and odds are that lawmakers will consider a bill to make it legal to bet on sporting events.“I think we have a really good chance to get sports betting passed here in the State of Iowa this year,” said Senate Majority Leader Jack Whitver, a Republican from Ankeny who decides which bills get debated in the state senate.The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last May that all states may legalize wagering on sporting events.“As I travel to conferences across the country and meet with other leaders, there’s a lot of states that are looking at that right now,” Whitver told Radio Iowa today. “I think right now the conversations have progressed pretty well in the state of Iowa. You have a lot of people interested in that bill seem to be on the same page and that makes it a lot more feasible this year.”Over the past couple of years, casino industry lobbyists urged Iowa legislators to prepare for the Supreme Court’s ruling and set up a system that would give the state-licensed casinos authority run sports book operations. New Jersey and Delaware immediately legalized sports betting this past spring and Whitver says Iowa casinos seem the likely host for wagering on sports — if it’s legalized here.“We have a fairly good system set up with the casinos and our Racing and Gaming (Commission) overseeing gambling and so I think you’d largely use that structure as you look at how to implement sports betting,” Whitver said.Iowa Lottery officials say several of the state’s largest lottery retailers want the option of offering a sports lottery — similar. perhaps, to the one now legal in Delaware. Whitver said it “makes more sense” to have sports wagering managed by the casinos.“There’s a lot of people that want a piece of the action,” Whitver said. “…The casinos are used to the regulation. They understand the process. The systems are all set up there. It would be totally different to allow the lottery to get into the gambling world and so, right now, I would be more focused on the casinos, but open minded to listen to what those who are advocating for the lottery would say.”Estimates indicate Americans illegally bet hundreds of billions of dollars on sporting events every year. Bills to legalize sports betting in Iowa have been introduced in the Iowa legislature since 2010, but none advanced beyond the committee level.
Serena Williams, right, gets congratulated by her sister and opponent Venus Williams after cruising to a victory on Aug. 31, 2018 in New York. Julian Finney / Getty ImagesNEW YORK (AP) _ A crowd gathered when Venus Williams practiced with Sachia Vickery at the U.S. Open. Kids waited by the fence for autographs.The seven-time Grand Slam singles champion helped Vickery prepare for her first-round match. Vickery lost, but the thrill of hitting with her idol was a lasting memory.“That was actually an experience of a lifetime for me, so I’m still in shock a little bit,” said Vickery, a 23-year-old African-American and former top-ranked junior player.Venus and Serena Williams have been a nearly constant presence at the U.S. Open since the debut of Arthur Ashe Stadium 21 years ago. Their 30 combined Grand Slam singles titles have changed the tennis landscape.Many American kids of color are taking part in youth programs, often citing the superstar sisters as the reason.“There’s certainly more diverse activity from an ethnic standpoint since they came on the scene,” said D.A. Abrams, chief diversity and inclusion officer for the U.S. Tennis Association. “At junior tournaments at higher levels, they’re more diverse ethnically than they were in the past.”The No. 1 junior is 14-year-old African-American Cori “Coco” Gauff, who once practiced on the same park courts in Delray Beach, Florida, as the Williams sisters. Patrick Mouratoglou, Serena’s coach, worked with Gauff at his academy in Paris and she recently won the French Open girls title.“First of all, she’s a great competitor. Second of all, she has incredible abilities,” Mouratoglou said. “Everything else is just work. And she’s a hard worker.”Several young black players were competing in the final major of the season at Flushing Meadows. Whitney Osuigwe recently won the USTA 18s Girls National title and earned a wild card into the main draw. Rising Canadian stars Felix Auger-Aliassime and Franciose Abanda went through qualifying, and Auger-Aliassime reached the main draw.“I grew up watching the Williams sisters,” said the 21-year-old Abanda, who saw them play at the Rogers Cup in Toronto when she was 14. “I appreciate Venus, who is playing for so long and at a high level. They have really big power games and maximize it.”Thousands of fans and tennis camp kids of varying ethnicities watched the free four-day qualifying tournament ahead of the U.S. Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.The sport was mostly white when King was a teen in the 1950s. American Althea Gibson became the first Black player to win a Grand Slam title at the 1956 French Open, and Ashe won the U.S. Open in 1968. Both were forced to play in segregated tournaments early in their careers.“When players take the court today, they do not look like each other,” King said in an email to The Associated Press. “They are more reflective of our global society. That is a big improvement from my day, and it is especially important for future generations because the children can see this change and they can aspire to be part of it.”King said she’d like to see more diversity on the business side, plus more female coaches and coaches of color.Of 15 Americans in the top 100 of the WTA year-end rankings in 1999, four women were African-American. Serena won the U.S. Open that year.The current top 100 has 13 Americans, including six African-Americans: reigning U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens at No. 3, followed by Madison Keys (No. 14), Venus (No. 16), Serena (No. 26), Taylor Townsend (No. 73) and Vickery (No. 78).Japan’s Naomi Osaka (No. 19) is also of Haitian descent. Latina players Caroline Garcia, Garbine Muguruza, Carla Suarez Navarro and Monica Puig are joined by five Chinese competitors.The men’s ATP top 100 has 21 people of color, including African-American Frances Tiafoe (No. 44) and Asian-American Mackenzie McDonald (No. 79) among the 11 top Americans. In 1999, eight of the nine American men in the top 100 were white.Vickery signed autographs for several young black fans, who called out her name after practicing with Venus. She trained at age 8 with Richard Williams, practicing for nearly a year with Venus and Serena’s father in West Palm Beach.Vickery wore a T-shirt after her first-round match with the words “black” and “white” crossed out, leaving the words “human being.”“I know there’s not too many of us players on tour,” she said. “So it’s really, really great to see the young black kids.”Several programs are trying to diversify tennis in the United States. The Williams sisters have an academy in Los Angeles and Kamau Murray, Stephens’ coach, recently opened a $16.9 million tennis village on Chicago’s South Side.More than 200,000 kids in the 50 largest U.S. markets have access to free or low-cost tennis programs run by the National Junior Tennis and Learning network and the USTA Foundation.USTA President Katrina Adams, the first African-American to hold that position, is looking forward to more growth at all levels from “the seeds Venus and Serena have planted.”“The ability to watch a player whom you can identify with, competing and succeeding in the very same sport you love and play, speaks volumes,” she said.Last year, the 24-year-old Stephens beat 37-year-old Venus in the U.S. Open semifinals, which featured four Americans and three women of color. She defeated good friend Keys in the final, was handed the trophy by Adams and earned a $3.7 million paycheck.Missing was Serena, who gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. last September.“She’s, in my opinion, the greatest player to ever play our game,” said Stephens, who had a poster of Serena on her wall growing up. “American tennis is really flourishing at the moment, especially the women. We represent something really strong and really powerful.”___AP Radio Correspondent Julie Walker contributed to this report.
