Top Texas recruit’s brother says he took improper gifts

first_imgIn this Jan. 14, 2017, file photo, Westtown School’s Mo Bamba watches from the bench during a high school basketball game against Hillcrest Prep at the 2017 Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass. (AP Photo/Gregory Payan, File)AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ The older brother of Texas basketball recruit Mo Bamba says Bamba took improper gifts and money from a Detroit financial adviser that would make him ineligible to play in college.Ibrahim Johnson posted a rambling, profanity-laced, 20-minute Facebook video Wednesday, accusing adviser Greer Love of giving Bamba money and gifts. Love previously worked in New York and was involved in youth sports in Harlem, where he got to know Bamba’s family.Love told 247Sports Bamba asked him to help manage his recruitment. Love says he consulted with schools to ensure he wasn’t breaking rules and wouldn’t jeopardize Bamba’s eligibility.Texas officials said Bamba’s amateur status had previously been reviewed by the NCAA and that he’s been cleared to play, but the school did not release a statement from Bamba or address any specifics in the brother’s video. Bamba is one of the top incoming players in the country next season.“We’re aware of the recent social media post regarding our men’s basketball student-athlete Mohamed Bamba,” the Longhorns said. “As is usual practice by the NCAA, Mo’s amateur status was previously reviewed and final certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center. The NCAA has not informed us of any pending issues or eligibility concerns at this time regarding Mo. If there are further questions, we certainly will cooperate with the NCAA to the fullest.”Love did not respond to requests for comment from The Associated Press. NCAA spokesman Chris Radford said the NCAA is “aware of the situation and we are working with the school,” but declined further comment.A 6-foot-11 forward, Bamba is considered the gem of coach Shaka Smart’s incoming class and a player who could make a huge impact on a program that went 11-22 last season. He fills a critical need for the Longhorns after center Jarrett Allen was drafted by the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets. Bamba picked Texas over Kentucky, Michigan and Duke.The allegations leveled by Johnson do not directly involve the Longhorns, but focus on Bamba’s relationship with Love. Johnson said Love gave his brother $200 a week, paid credit card bills and paid for a trip to California.Johnson, a former Division II player at the University of Montevallo in Alabama, also complained of a falling out with his brother and said Bamba wouldn’t help him get into graduate school at Texas.Johnson said he reported his allegations of improper payments and benefits to the NCAA and was scheduled to meet with NCAA officials soon.“He’s not going to play” in college, Johnson said of his brother.Love’s response reported by 247Sports didn’t address the specific allegations raised by Johnson.“Doing things the right way has been our top priority since day one,” Love said. “Mo’s got way too much to lose to take any chances on anything even remotely impermissible. With my nine-year, pre-existing relationship on the line with Mo personally, let alone his college eligibility, I took several additional measures to ensure that Mo was fully compliant every step of the way.”___More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25last_img read more

100 Years of Sears Catalogues: The Answer to the Question “What’s the Internet For?”

first_imgFinally. The Internet is now good for something. Ancestry.com, leaders in putting freakyshit online, have fired 100 years of Sears Catalogues through a series of tubes and straight into your eyeholes. 250,000 pages of cataloguey goodness are yours for perusal, covering the years 1896 to 1993, when it ceased production as a paper artifact. Ancestry, the Utah-based online genealogy company, is really stretching, not just to help you find out who your progenitors were, but Who they were. What they wore. What they used in the kitchen. Righteous. But like any wholesale sharing of previously-unavailable material online, people will find new uses for the materials. Historians and designers in particular should be able to make hay from this trove. Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… “The original 1888 mailer carrying watches and jewelry expanded into a catalog in 1894 that kept growing offering an ever-widening range of products: sewing machines, sporting goods, musical instruments, saddles, firearms, buggies, bicycles, baby carriages, and clothing.” (And houses, of course – that goes without saying.)*Now, if you grew up with the Sears catalogue (I’m talking to the grown-ups here), you probably know all that. Here’s what you might not know. Big wigs were involved in the catalogue’s production. Big. Wigs.“Big name 40s and 50s film stars Lauren Bacall and Susan Hayward model fashions in pages of the catalog. Also featured are Ted Williams, a major baseball player in the 40s, Al Unser, a race car driver, and Gene Autry, ‘The Singing Cowboy.’”As one of my co-workers** so sagely said, and I quote, “Squeeeee!!!!” Squeeeee indeed, my young friend.

Benzema-inspired Real Madrid stun Bayern Munich in UCL semis

first_imgReal Madrid’s Benzema reacts after scoring his goal against Bayern Munich on Wednesday Karim Benzema’s goal gave Real Madrid a 1-0 first-leg victory over title holder Bayern Munich on Wednesday, but the nine-time champions may live to regret the missed chances in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal.Madrid endured plenty of pressure in the first leg match, but scored from a 19th-minute counter-attack. Cristiano Ronaldo found Fabio Coentrao speeding down the left flank and Benzema steered his low cross past goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.Ronaldo returned from a left leg injury but missed a number of scoring opportunities before eventually giving way to Gareth Bale, who had started on the bench after battling with flu.Bayern pressed for an equalizer in the closing stages, forcing Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas to deny Mario Goetze in the 84th minute while fellow substitute Thomas Mueller had no better luck with his late effort from inside the area.But Madrid should have extended its lead ahead of Tuesday’s return leg in Germany, as the team bids to end a three-season semifinal losing streak and reach the final for the first time since winning in 2002.”If you want to do damage, you have to go for the victory – because 1-0 is not definitive,” Madrid defender Sergio Ramos said as he looked ahead to a tough second leg match. “But it’s a good result to take to Munich.”Atletico Madrid or Chelsea await in the May 24 final in Lisbon, with the pair playing to a scoreless draw in their first-leg match on Tuesday.advertisementPep Guardiola endured his first loss at the Bernabeu as coach after seven previous visits with Barcelona, and at times the encounter took on the appearance of a “clasico” with Madrid looking to capitalize on the break while the visitors controlled play.”Madrid thrives off the counter attack, Madrid is the best team in the world on the counter,” Guardiola said. “They get back as fast as they go forward, they’re athletes.”Madrid’s defense did well to contain Bayern in its area and then break quickly, but the Spanish club squandered its other chances after Benzema broke the deadlock.Ronaldo, who looked uncomfortable at times despite passing a late fitness test, followed up a sharp header at Neuer with a first-time shot from Luka Modric’s perfect pass in the 26th minute – only for his effort to fly high over the top with just the Germany ‘keeper to beat.Madrid dug in and did well to clear many of Bayern’s best opportunities as it controlled three-quarters of possession in the first half. The German champions found space between the lines and combined some swift passing movements, with Franck Ribery picking out Arjen Robben inside the area in the 39th.But Madrid weathered each buildup before surging forward, with Angel Di Maria gathering a loose ball at the right post only to wildly shoot over Neuer before halftime.After the break, Neuer had to dive low to keep out Ronaldo’s angled shot after a Bayern defensive mix-up.Ronaldo forced Neuer into another low save before giving way to Bale, who energized Madrid’s attack with his pace. The Welshman was playing for the first time since his stunning winner in Madrid’s 2-1 victory over Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final.”It’s been 20 days Cristiano hasn’t been 100 percent, so it was a sacrifice for him. It couldn’t have been easy for Cristiano tonight,” said Ancelotti, who remained unbeaten against Bayern with his fifth win in seven meetings. “But Cristiano and Bale will be 100 percent” for the return, the Italian coach added.Guardiola brought on Mueller and Goetze for the final quarter and Mueller nearly equalized with a rising shot in the 81st. A chance then fell to Goetze in the Madrid area but Casillas reacted well to stop the German’s powerful volley.”They had chances to score more goals, definitely,” said Guardiola. “We probably should have created a few more scoring chances. (But) they have a very good defense.”Bayern had gone 29 matches without scoring coming into the 20th meeting between the storied European rivals, and will still rate its chances of reaching a third straight final with the return leg at home.last_img read more
