I wasn’t paying attention to anything anybody else was saying,” said Metu, who scored 14 points to lead Southern California to a 74-58 win over Utah on Saturday. David Collette paced Utah (18-10, 10-7) with 14 points as the Utes saw their five-game win streak snapped. Most prognosticators have USC firmly on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament but this win will probably push them forward for an at-large bid. Committing 15 turnovers and shooting 40.7 per cent from the field doomed their streak and makes a deep Pac-12 Tournament run crucial to their post-season hopes. Based on the available documents and a number of interviews, we determined that Chimezie is eligible to play in today’s game at Utah.

Wow!”The White House had objected to the Democratic memo’s release, citing national security concerns on Feb. 9. The memo also contends that the Justice Department provided “additional information from multiple independent sources that corroborated Steele’s reporting” in the dossier. Trump has said the GOP memo “vindicates” him in the ongoing Russia investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller. Republicans say they are just alerting the public to abuses they say they’ve uncovered at the Justice Department and FBI. ——Link to Democratic memo on government surveillance in Russia probe:http://apne.ws/oGQvU7SLink to Republican memo on government surveillance in Russia probe:http://apne.ws/NEA8JRJ

International Ice Hockey Federation president Rene Fasel said continuous sudden-death overtime is not possible in a tournament. U.S. women’s hockey coach Robb Stauber knows it can go both ways. Ask any of Canada’s players from 1994 and 1998 — or Canada’s women’s team that lost the Olympic final for the first time since ’98 after going back and forth for 80 minutes with the Americans. More recently in international hockey, the U.S. beat Canada in a shootout for the gold at the 2017 world junior championship. That’s Fasel’s point: If it’s good enough for soccer, it’s good enough for hockey.

Sheriff’s offices and police departments across Washington state have sold dozens of AR-15s, AK47s and other assault weapons since 2010, an Associated Press investigation found. But Yakima Police Captain Jeff Schneider said it’s “absolutely insane” that police are selling assault weapons. It’s a really bad idea to sell an assault rifle,” said Schneider, whose agency melts down confiscated guns. The Spokane Police Department, which sold three assault weapons since 2011, says it’s OK with putting the rifles out there. “We have to follow the law of the land, and it would be up to state lawmakers to allow us to destroy weapons,” State Patrol spokesman Kyle Moore said Wednesday.

TEMPE, Ariz. — Shohei Ohtani didn’t quite dazzle in his spring pitching debut with the Los Angeles Angels. “Besides the results, I mean, I had a lot of fun out there, so I think it went all well,” Ohtani said through a translator. Ohtani didn’t hit — he wasn’t in manager Mike Scioscia’s batting order. “I think he’s got great stuff,” Broxton said. Off-speed looked really good.

We’re handicapping the odds on the nine Best Picture contenders for the March 4 Academy Awards. He’s the overwhelming favourite to win Best Actor for portraying Winston Churchill, in this take on the political struggles behind the Second World War story that also fuels Dunkirk. The film is respected but it’s missing the love that would be reflected in an accompanying nomination for Best Director or one for the Screen Actors Guild’s ensemble prize, both usually necessary for Best Picture glory. Perhaps more damning is the failure to win Best Film on home turf at the BAFTAs, a.k.a. As Parliament rages, newly minted British PM Winston Churchill (Oldman) must weight the cost of fighting on — or surrendering.

— A man attacked a woman from behind at a public library near Boston on Saturday and stabbed her repeatedly with a hunting knife, killing her and injuring an elderly man who came to her aid, authorities said. Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said the 22-year-old woman was studying or doing work at a table in the Winchester Public Library’s reading room when 23-year-old Jeffrey Yao attacked her with a 10-inch knife. The woman suffered numerous slash and stab wounds to her head and upper torso, Ryan said. Ryan said the woman staggered toward the door and several people tried to help her, including a 77-year-old man who also was stabbed. The district attorney said authorities are working to determine a possible motive and whether Yao and the woman knew each other.

WASHINGTON — Governors assessing the fallout from the latest school shooting said Saturday that the gun control debate has changed after the sorrow in Florida, a shift helped driven by public outrage and student activists. School safety and gun violence are expected to dominate the governors’ discussions Monday with President Donald Trump at the White House. Dannel Malloy, D-Conn., who dealt with the aftermath of the 2012 elementary school shooting in Newtown. The Democratic governors of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island announced a partnership last week to address gun violence. It would mark the strongest gun control laws in the state in decades, defying the NRA, but falling short of what gun control advocates have demanded.

If you aren't familiar with his work, you could be forgiven for assuming that Joel Thomas Hynes is a full-time novelist. Not the most conventional approachNow that his teenaged son Percy Hynes White — whose mother Sherry White is a producer on the television series Frontier — has begun acting, Hynes has the experience of seeing the industry in another light. Percy Hynes White, left, stars in The Gifted on the Fox network. The book cover for We'll All Be Burnt In Our Beds Some Night by Joel Thomas Hynes. But Venice Beach may still feel familiar to fans because it draws many of the same types of people that tend to populate Hynes' writing.
