Next Game: Story Links Live Stats ESPN 1350 Mountain West Network Listen Live Watch Live at Nevada 12/12/2015 – 6:00 PM Box Score (PDF) Full Schedule Roster Preview Box Score (HTML Photo Gallery DES MOINES, Iowa— Sophomore Reed Timmer (New Berlin, Wis.) scored a career high 30 points, but it wasn’t enough to push the Drake University men’s basketball past DePaul in a 74-71 loss Wednesday evening at the Knapp Center.Timmer scored 20 of Drake’s 37 first-half points. He finished the evening shooting 7-of-11 from the field, 3-of-4 from three-point range and was 13-of-17 from the free-throw line. Sophomore Graham Woodward (Edina, Minn.) followed, finishing with 18 points along with three assists for Drake (4-5). “[Reed] Timmer took the right shots tonight,” said Drake head coach Ray Giacoletti. “He’s come a long way and has developed into a two-way player by offensively being able to shoot and help the other players.”Junior Jacob Enevold Jensen (Lunderskov, Denmark) had a season-high 13 rebounds, six offensive, in the loss. Billy Garrett Jr. led DePaul (5-3) with 19 points and Darrick Wood had a game-high four assists. As a team, DePaul shot 57.1 percent from the field, made half of its 12 three-point attempts and got 22 points off the bench. “They came out with a little more energy than we did,” Timmer said. “But it starts on the defensive end.”DePaul opened the game with 14-2 lead as the Blue Demons made six of their first eight shots from the field while forcing the Bulldogs to 1-of-12 shooting to open the game. “To dig ourselves in that kind of whole within the first four minutes of the game made it seem like we were trying to dig ourselves out of it the rest of the game,” Giacoletti said. “I thought we had some pretty good looks, we just couldn’t capitalize on them.” Timmer rallied the Bulldogs back to pull within two points, 22-20, on a pair of free throws with 8:14 left in the half. The Bulldogs would remain within three possessions for the rest of half with a Kale Abrahamson (West Des Moines, Iowa) three-pointer as time expired trimming the deficit to one point, 38-37, at halftime.Drake took the lead briefly to open the second half, but a 16-6 DePaul run extended its lead to nine points, 56-47, with 12 minutes left. With 2:41 on the clock, Drake pulled within three, 66-63, on a C.J. Rivers (Cahokia, Ill.) three-pointer off a Timmer assist. DePaul answered with back-to-back buckets before a Woodward three-pointer with 30 seconds left pulled Drake back into the game. The Bulldogs attempted to mount a comeback in the final seconds, but the Blue Demons made five of their final seven free-throw attempts to preserve the win.The Bulldogs travel to Reno, Nev., to take on Nevada Dec. 12. Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. CST and the game can be heard on ESPN 1350 and streamed online via NevadaWolfpack.tv.Print Friendly Version

A lorry driver overtook another lorry driver on a continuous white line and almost crashed head-on into an oncoming Garda patrol car.Letterkenny Court.Joseph McCauley, 54, appeared before Letterkenny District Court yesterday charged with dangerous driving at Currin, Termon, on November 5th, 2013. Gardai revealed it was 8.15am when they noticed a lorry overtaking another lorry on a continuous white line and that the lorry had to pull in sharply to avoid colliding with the patrol car.Solicitor for McCauley, Mr Frank Dorrian, said the other lorry had indicated that he was pulling into the left and that it was a wide enough road with plenty of room to pass.However as McCauley, of Lower Drung, Quigley’s Point, passed, the other lorry failed to slow down.Judge Paul Kelly remarked that the reason there was continuous white lines on the road was the vehicles would not overtake eachother at that point.He said that because McCauley had no previous convictions, he would reduce the charge to one of careless driving and imposed a fine of €300.TRUCK DRIVER ALMOST STRUCK GARDA CAR AFTER OVERTAKING ANOTHER LORRY was last modified: March 23rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGardaiJoseph McCauleylorryquigleys pointTermontruck

The newly appointed CEO and president of MTN, Sifiso Dabengwa, will commence his duties in April 2011.(Image: MyBroadband.co.za) On 20 December African telecommunications giant MTN announced the appointment of its new CEO and president, Sifiso Dabengwa, who will commence his duties from April 2011. Dabengwa replaces outgoing CEO Phuthuma Nhleko, who leaves in March 2011 after nine years at the helm.Dabengwa is the current group chief operating officer, a position which will soon be replaced with that of chief executive of its international operations.“Given the strong growth and development of MTN International (MTNI), it has been decided to abolish the position of COO and instead to appoint a CEO for the company to focus more intensely on opportunities,” said MTN in a statement.The incoming CEO Sifiso Dabengwa is an engineering graduate of the University of Zimbabwe and was chief operating officer of MTN Group and chief executive officer of MTN Nigeria – simultaneously – before his new appointment. He holds an MBA from the University of the Witwatersrand and was also head of power utility Eskom’s distribution division, where he controlled a multibillion-rand budget before joining MTN in 1999.He started his career at MTN as MD of the group’s South African operations. In 2004 he assumed his two concurrent positions, with the goal of overseeing growth and consolidation into Nigeria’s mobile market.He has worked closely with Nhleko since returning to South Africa in 2006 and according to analysts his appointment was widely expected, as this would provide continuity for the company.Telecoms analyst Spiwe Chireka said: “Whoever would take over from Phuthuma Nhleko would definitely need to have the African experience as their first strong point.”“He’s been with Phuthuma for a while and so far MTN’s vision and strategy have worked well and you want someone who can continue with that,” added Chireka.However, analysts have also expressed caution. Fund manager Pallavi Ambekar warned that Dabengwa will be faced with the same challenges as Nhleko – these include regulatory problems and increased competition in major markets.Ambekar said: “The focus on capex and cost efficiency and continued focus on growing key markets are expected to be some of the priorities.”The outgoing CEO Phuthuma Nhleko is also chairman and a founding member of Worldwide African Investment Holdings, an investment company with interests in the petroleum, telecommunications and IT industries.Nhleko holds a BSc from the University of Ohio State and an MBA in finance from the University of Atlanta.He holds directorships in a number of major companies including Johnnic Holdings; Nedbank Group; Old Mutual SA; Network Communications Solutions; Nixia Trading; Worldwide Capital and Commerce One.Nhleko wanted to leave MTN on a high note – in 2010 the company attempted to buy Egyptian operator Orascom and to clinch a deal with India’s Bharti Airtel but both deals fell through.Although Nhleko did not seal those two deals, his tenure at MTN was a success and he will now take up the position of group non-executive chairman.Multinational mobile network MTN is a telecoms company operating in 21 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.It is the second largest mobile network in South Africa and is listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE). The group has 134.4-million subscribers across its territories.MTN operates in Botswana, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria, the Republic of Congo, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia, Iran, Afghanistan, Benin, Cyprus, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Republic, Liberia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.In South Africa, the telecoms company supports football; cycling; cricket; music and beauty pageants. It sponsors local football teams Golden Arrows, Ajax Cape Town and Black Leopards. It’s the sponsor of one of South Africa’s largest cycling clubs, Club 100. In terms of music, it hosts one of the country’s biggest music events, the MTN South African Music Awards. In 2010 it hosted the premier Crowning Miss Soweto beauty pageant.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Scattered moisture will be threatening at least parts of the state over the next couple of days, but we really don’t see anything significant statewide until later Thursday. Today we start off with scattered showers drifting out of southern and southeast MI down into far northern Ohio. We should stay partly sunny from at least US 30 southward, and scattered showers today will be mostly north of US 20. In those areas, we won’t rule out up to .2” of liquid, but probably will see a lot less…more like a few hundredths to a tenth. Tomorrow we should see a mix of clouds and sun statewide, while moisture consolidates farther to our west.Thursday will turn out to be a rainy day statewide. Showers and thunderstorms cross the state, from mid-morning on through early Friday. The best action will be from Thursday afternoon through at least midnight Friday. Rain totals will end up in a range from .25”-1.5” with 80% coverage. However, the heaviest action still coming from I-70 southward. The map at right shows total rain potential now through midday Friday.We should see sunshine remerge Friday midday to early afternoon as High pressure moves across the great lakes (in particular, southern Michigan) through the day Friday, ending up along the north shore of Lake Erie late in the day. This allows for partly to mostly sunny skies to come in behind all the rain, but also cools temps a nice little chunk. We remain sunny for Saturday with excellent evaporation potential. Friday’s evaporation will be limited a bit by cooler air.Sunday remains a pesky little sibling in our forecast this morning. We would like to wave the “all clear” flag and be able to promise a nice, multi-day dry stretch across the state. But, alas, there still seems to be a threat of a little bit of moisture coming through. The thunderstorm threat is gone, as those still look to stay well south of the Ohio river. However, minor chances for showers are going to be with us off and on through the day, bringing up to .4” liquid and 70% coverage.Monday will see lingering rain in northern parts of the state, particularly in NE Ohio, with rain totals up to .5”. This will be wrap around from that Sunday moisture that we seem unable to dodge. The southern half of the state will be partly sunny, and we should see clouds give way to sun in NW Ohio.Partly sunny conditions are here Tuesday with great drying weather and a slight bump in temps. Temps should be near normal. Scattered showers are possible across 60% of the state next Wednesday, but moisture mostly limited to less than .3”. Clouds will mix with sun in areas where rain misses. We finish the 10-day window with sunshine next Thursday.The extended period starts with a run of 4 more dry, sunny days. This takes us through Monday the 20th. Rain and thunderstorms arrive Tuesday the 21st and showers linger through Wednesday the 22nd. Rains from that system can be from .3”- 1.25”, and coverage close to 80%.
