The Latest
In a testy debate between nine mayoral candidates, businessman Willie Wilson was targeted for his repeated calls for police to be allowed to ‘hunt people down like rabbits.’ Wilson made no apologies, saying anyone who kills someone, ‘well, they put themselves down there.’
The Blue Demons went on an 18-4 run that trimmed the Huskies’ lead to 63-57 midway through the second half. But UConn restored a comfortable margin with an 8-0 run.
Peyton Sandfort and Filip Rebraca combined to score 20 points over the final seven minutes as the Hawkeyes pulled away from the Wildcats.
DeMar DeRozan couldn’t get a call on a key drive in the final minute (“I got fouled”) and the Bulls botched an inbounds play in the final 10 seconds with a chance to tie — their 20th turnover — to halt their winning streak at one.
