Power, wealth and athleticism in the NFL leads to unjust privileges

I used to be a die-hard Cleveland Browns fan, but it all changed when Deshaun Watson was traded, bringing the NFL’s history back to the surface.

Ball State beaten by Duquesne buzzer-beater

Jaylin Sellers takes the handoff and goes straight to the basket for a layup plus the foul. He drains the free throw to give Ball State Men's Basketball a two-point lead with 12 seconds to go. Duquesne makes its way up the court, scrambling to either tie or win the game. Ball State defends their matchups well until Tre Clark III gets the ball on the left wing. He dribbles and shot fakes, but Jarron Coleman doesn’t bite. It doesn’t matter. He shoots it anyway. The buzzer sounds and the basket is good. The Dukes win, 78-77.

The second quarter was not much different with both teams scoring 17 points a piece. Groves talked about the shooting performances from the two schools.

“I thought both teams were going to reach 100 [points],” he said. “They shot lights out and we shot pretty decent in the first half.”

But after halftime, the Blackhawks stepped on the gas pedal and did not look back. They scored 29 points in the fourth quarter, 15 more points than the Trojans. Junior guard Timmy Watson was instrumental in the comeback.
