Crosby's shot lifts Delaware State over NC Central 68-66

DOVER, Del. (AP) — John Crosby scored 18 points and buried a jumper at the buzzer to lift Delaware State to a 68-66 victory over North Carolina Central on Saturday, snapping the Hornets' seven-game losing streak.

Jibri Blount's layup gave NC Central a 65-61 lead with 1:42 left in the game. But Crosby had a three-point play and Myles Carter added a layup to put Delaware State up 66-65 with 43 seconds remaining. Deven Palmer made 1 of 2 free throws with 3 seconds to go to pull the Eagles even and set the stage for Crosby's game-winner.

Crosby hit 8 of 14 shots from the floor for Delaware State (2-14, 1-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), which shot just 41% from the floor and 25% from 3-point range (5 of 20). John Stansbury scored 15 on 5-of-8 shooting, while Ameer Bennett pitched in with 11 points and six rebounds. Carter finished with 10 points off the bench.

Blount topped the Eagles with 26 points and 13 rebounds for his sixth double-double of the season. Blount hit 10 of 20 shots from the floor for NC Central (5-11, 1-1), which shot 45% overall but just 19% from beyond the arc (3 of 16). Ty Graves scored 12.

    Cornyn: Giuliani ‘not relevant’ to impeachment trial

    President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who's reported to have played a central role in trying to convince Ukraine to investigate a Trump political rival, is “not relevant” to the Senate impeachment trial, Sen. John Cornyn said Sunday. The House Intelligence Committee released a series of text messages Friday that show an aide to California Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, in frequent communication with Lev Parnas, the indicted associate of Giuliani who has become a key figure in the Ukraine controversy that resulted in the House's December vote to impeach the president.

    ICE ups ante in standoff with NYC: 'This is not a request'

    Federal authorities are turning to a new tactic in the escalating conflict over New York City's so-called sanctuary policies, issuing four “immigration subpoenas” to the city for information about inmates wanted for deportation. This is not a request — it's a demand,” Henry Lucero, a senior U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official, told The Associated Press. This is a last resort for us.

    Two More Bodies Found at Tijuana Property Where Missing California Couple Were Buried Under the Dirt Floor

    Two more bodies have been discovered at a Tijuana, Mexico, property where investigators earlier found the remains of a missing California couple buried under the dirt floor of a house on Friday. Jesús Rubén López Guillén, 70, a U.S. resident, and his wife Maria Teresa Guillén, 65, a naturalized U.S. citizen, were reported missing by their daughter Norma López after they traveled from Garden Grove to Tijuana on Jan. 10 to collect more than $6,400 in overdue rent from their 37-year-old son-in-law. Police in Garden Grove launched a missing persons investigation after López said she could no longer track her parents' movements through the Find My Phone app.

    Doris Miller was working as a mess attendant on the battleship West Virginia the morning of 7 December 1941, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. An alarm sounded, and as the ship drew heavy fire, Miller raced to assist the West Virginia's fatally wounded commanding officer. For his bravery and “distinguished devotion to duty” that day, Miller in 1942 was awarded the prestigious Navy Cross, the second-highest military decoration, making him the first African American to receive the medal.

    Increased security, fear of violence ahead of Virginia pro-gun rally

    Thousands of gun rights supporters will descend Monday on Richmond, the capital of Virginia, for a rally already under heavy surveillance and a state of emergency declared by authorities fearing violence by far-right groups. The demonstrators will gather in front of the Capitol building for a so-called "Lobby Day" organized by the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), which opposes gun control laws proposed by state Democrats, who control the Virginia government. The VCDL has condemned what it considers a breach of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution, which states that "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The amendment has proved controversial over the years and has been subject to many different interpretations.

    China Thinks It Can Nuke American Cities. Should We Worry?

    Key Point: Despite the developments related above, the balance of opinion in Beijing seems impressively moderate on the prospects for a major nuclear buildup by China. When one reads enough Chinese naval literature, diagrams of multi-axial cruise missile saturation attacks against aircraft carrier groups may begin to seem normal. Targets include the biggest cities on the East and West Coasts, as well as in the Midwest, as one would expect.

    Illegal crossings plunge as US extends policy across border

    Adolfo Cardenas smiles faintly at the memory of traveling with his 14-year-old son from Honduras to the U.S.-Mexico border in only nine days, riding buses and paying a smuggler $6,000 to ensure passage through highway checkpoints. Father and son walked about 10 minutes in Arizona's stifling June heat before surrendering to border agents. Instead of being released with paperwork to appear in immigration court in Dallas, where Cardenas hopes to live with a cousin, they were bused more than an hour to wait in the Mexican border city of Mexicali.

    TSA issues apology to Native American woman who had braids pulled by agent

    The federal Transportation Security Administration has apologized to a Native American woman who said an agent at Minneapolis-St Paul international airport “pulled her braids” and said “giddy up!” when she took a flight from there this week. “The agent said she needed to pat down my braids,” tweeted Tara Houska, an indigenous rights advocate and attorney. According to the Washington Post, women of color have long experienced problems at TSA checkpoints, because natural, braided or twisted hair prompt “flags” on security devices, spurring “more invasive screenings”.

    Police arrest organizer of Hong Kong protest after rally turns violent

    A prominent Hong Kong pro-democracy activist was arrested by police, his organization said on Monday, after a protest he helped organize in the financial district a day earlier turned violent with officers firing tear gas to disperse the crowds. Ventus Lau was arrested on Sunday evening on charges of "obstruction of police administration" and violating terms set when permission was granted for the protest, the Hong Kong Civil Assembly Team said in a statement. The organizers initially applied for a permit - known as a letter of no objection - for a march, but the police only agreed to a static rally in a park in the city's Central district.

    Iran says it will examine the plane it shot down domestically — but a national air safety director admitted that the agency hasn't been able to open black boxes previously

    Reuters An accident investigation director for the Iranian government told state media on Jan. 19 that the downed plane's black boxes will be examined domestically. That refutes a statement he made to state media the previous day — that Iran was unable to investigate the black box alone and that Iran would send the black box to Ukraine, where investigators from France, Canada, and the US would assist in the inspection. On Jan. 8, two missiles brought down Ukrainian Airlines Flight 752.

According to the Berlin-based Topography of Terror archive, photos of Demjanjuk are among a newly discovered collection of more than 350 snaps which give "detailed insight" into the camp in German-occupied Poland.

    Key point: The Astutes are the largest SSNs ever operated by the Royal Navy, half again as large as the Trafalgar class. Since the commissioning of HMS Dreadnought in 1963, the Royal Navy has maintained a formidable force of nuclear attack submarines. The latest nuclear attack subs, the Astute class, have become a critical component of the future of the Royal Navy—but, given Russia's resurgence, are they enough?

    S. Korea confirms first case of SARS-like virus from China

    South Korea on Monday confirmed its first case of the SARS-like virus that is spreading in China, as concerns mount about a wider outbreak. A 35-year-old Chinese woman who flew in from Wuhan, the apparent epicentre of the outbreak, was confirmed to have the new coronavirus strain, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said. "She was visiting Seoul on a tour for the Lunar New Year holidays," said KCDC director Jung Eun-kyeong, adding Korean authorities were investigating her movement on the plane and those who might have come in contact with her, including flight attendants.
