Lamar tips off season at Tulsa

first_img The Southland Conference picked the Cardinals second in a preseason poll of the league head coaches and media relations directors. The Cardinals received five first-place votes and 234 points to finish second behind Stephen F. Austin. The selection is the highest preseason pick for the Cardinals since the 2007 when Big Red was selected to win the SLC East division (that year the league was broken up into the east and west divisions).A great deal of the excitement surrounding the program is centered around the wealth of talent returning from last year’s 19-15 (.559) squad that advanced to the Tournament – the program’s first postseason appearance since the 2012 season. Big Red returns four starters from last season, including first-team All-SLC selection Colton Weisbrod. The Nederland native ranked among the league’s top 10 in scoring and rebounding last year, and finished fourth in the Southland in double-doubles. He enters his senior season as the league’s top rebounder and top double-double threat. The Cardinals return 73 percent of their scoring and 63 percent of their rebounds from last year’s 19-win campaign.Friday’s game will be a contest of two teams in a similar position. Tulsa returns five of its top six leading scorers from last year’s 15-17 (.469) squad. The Golden Hurricane struggled down the stretch though closing out the 2016-17 season by dropping three of its final four games and nine of its last 12. Lamar sports informationBEAUMONT – Fourth-year Lamar head coach Tic Price brings his most veteran squad into the 2017-18 season as the Cardinals get set to tip off the new year Friday at Tulsa.

Big Red is 3-2 (.600) all-time against Tulsa away from Beaumont. LU will look to reverse a negative trend in road games from last season. The Cards struggled away from home going 6-11 (.353) in away games last year.On the flip side, the Cardinals have been very strong in season openers throughout program’s history. LU has posted a 57-9 (.864) all-time record in home-opening games, including victories in their past two home openers. Tuesday’s contest will be the first time in program history LU has opened a season at home against Coastal Carolina.last_img read more

Indictment: Intoxicated PA man IDs himself as TV attorney when confronted by police

first_img An indictment is not a final conviction of guilt; it is only a ruling by the grand jury that allows the district attorney’s office to proceed with a criminal case. A Port Arthur man whom police say they found intoxicated and lying on some steps at an apartment complex told officers his name was Jonathan Juhan, which is the same name of a well-known local attorney with commercials on TV.Besides failing to identify himself, he reportedly kicked and assaulted two officers while being placed in a patrol unit.Earlier this week a Jefferson County grand jury indicted Kevin Kenneth Provost, 26, for two counts of assault on a peace officer for an incident that occurred March 5. According to the affidavit for arrest, officers were at Avery Trace Apartments, 4160 FM 365, to serve a warrant and saw a man lying on the stairs. The man appeared unresponsive, so police checked his welfare and were able to wake him after a short time.Police were unable to locate anyone who could take responsibility for the man, whose speech was thick and slurred and officers believed him to be intoxicated.The man, later identified as Provost, reportedly refused to answer questions from police and gave the false name.center_img He was arrested for failure to identify and public intoxication, but as officers began to bring him to the car, he started kicking his legs and refusing to walk.He continued resisting, the document stated, and when seated in the back of the vehicle, began kicking again, striking one officer in the chest and another in the right hand.Provost was brought to the Medical Center of Southeast Texas for medical clearance before being taken to the Jefferson County Correctional Facility.Provost remains in jail on two $15,000 bonds each for assault on a peace officer.last_img read more
