Superlatives from Syracuse’s 73-53 win over Miami

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 24, 2019 at 9:58 pm Contact Charlie: csdistur@syr.edu | @charliedisturcocenter_img Since Syracuse’s upset of then-No. 1 Duke, a once-stagnant offense has broken out. The Orange’s hot shooting continued on Thursday night, as the team shot 49.1 percent from the field and 46.7 percent from beyond the arc. Elijah Hughes’ 22 points and six 3s led the way for Syracuse (14-5, 5-1 Atlantic Coast), which blew out Miami (9-9, 1-5) inside the Carrier Dome, 73-53. The Orange have won three straight and remain tied atop the conference standings.Here are the superlatives from the dominating victory.Big Moment: Paschal Chukwu’s block and Jim Larrañaga’s technicalWith just under 12 minutes remaining in the game, Ebuka Izundu went up with a layup. The ball was swatted away by Paschal Chukwu. UM players pleaded for a goaltending call but didn’t get one. Seconds later, Hurricanes head coach Jim Larrañaga, made his way to the court, screaming and throwing his arms in the air.He was quickly charged with a technical foul by the referee, and Tyus Battle made both free throws on the opposite end. The Orange, already on an 8-2 run, used the technical free throws to push the lead to double digits and pull away.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textStud: Elijah HughesA Miami player corralled a Marek Dolezaj missed shot and threw a lead pass to Zach Johnson running up the court. He caught the ball and rose up against Elijah Hughes, who met him at the rim and blocked the ball. The following possession, — after Hughes nabbed the defensive rebound — Dolezaj found Hughes on the left wing. He nailed it as the Carrier Dome crowd erupted. Head coach Jim Boeheim gave him a slap on the butt.Hughes could not miss on Thursday night, dropping 22 points with six 3s on 66.7 percent shooting from deep. Hughes was extremely active on the defensive end, too, adding three blocks and three steals.Dud: Oshae BrissettOnce again, Oshae Brissett struggled creating offense inside the paint. Drives that gave him open looks came up short. Jumpers rimmed out. Outside of his and-1 finish midway through the first half, Brissett struggled mightily. The sophomore forward finished with just seven points on 25 percent shooting. On a day where Syracuse’s offense had been on fire, Brissett was anything but.Highlight: Tyus Battle’s passingFresh off his third ACC Player of the Week award, Tyus Battle did not score a single point in the first half. While he missed all three shots in that frame, the junior tied a career-high with six assists. He even found Buddy Boeheim for 3 multiple times while manning the point as Frank Howard sat.While Battle found offensive success in the second half — scoring 10 points — his passing stood out and helped create offense for a hot-shooting Syracuse squad. He finished with nine assists. The highest single-game total by any player this season came in just more than 21 minutes.Lowlight: ReboundingIt was expected that Syracuse, the nation’s tallest team, would have no trouble out-rebounding Miami on Thursday. The Hurricanes are the 238th tallest team and have notoriously struggled on the boards. Yet, Miami doubled the Orange in first-half rebounds, grabbing eight on the offensive glass in the process. The Hurricanes finished the game with 39 rebounds to the Orange’s 28. Paschal Chukwu registered double-digit rebounds in back-to-back games but ended with just four rebounds on Thursday night.Early in the first half, Elijah Hughes and Oshae Brissett both blocked a pair of Miami shots into the stands. A long 3 before the shot clock expired came up short, but the Hurricanes grabbed the offensive rebound and scored a 3 seconds later. Second-chance points kept Miami close the entire game, as the Hurricanes outscored the Orange in that department, 19-6.last_img read more

Jamaican drug kingpin ordered to pay $20 million

first_imgRichard Byrd behind bars A Jamaican drug kingpin has been ordered to pay $20 million after being sentenced to 28 years in a Maryland Court.Richard Byrd a 43-year-old Jamaican residing in Maryland and Arizona, has been convicted and sentenced to 26 years on the federal charge of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana, and conspiracy to launder drug proceeds.Byrd, who goes by the name Robert Smith, was sentenced Thursday, February 9 in a district court in Baltimore, Maryland.Byrd…ordered to pay 420 millionThe court ordered that he be supervised for 10 years after his release.Byrd was also ordered to pay a money judgment of $20 million, as well as forfeit his interest in two properties, three businesses, and 10 vehicles, and forfeit US $1,609,411.51 in cash seized during the investigation.“This case represents the very height of drug organisations operating out of Baltimore in recent history,” Don Hibbert, assistant special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, said following the sentencing.“The Byrd organisation had it all — sources of supply, couriers, and lots and lots of money. But now all they have to show for it is a great deal of time behind bars to think about how they destroyed lives with the drugs they put on the street,”Hibbert said.According to his plea agreement and court documents, from 2009 through April 2014, Byrd was the leader and organiser a drug distribution network that provided for the acquisition, transportation and distribution of cocaine and marijuana.The sale of marijuana and cocaine generated proceeds in the millions of dollars. These proceeds were counted and packaged in and around Baltimore. Byrd used couriers to transport the proceeds to the Atlanta, Georgia area, then others to transport the money from Atlanta to cities in Nevada, Texas, Arizona, and California, where the cash was used to purchase additional quantities of drugs.Byrd also acquired a financial interest in a business in order to launder drug proceeds, finance commercial ventures, and pay other bills and expenses.At his direction, several million dollars in cash were deposited into the bank accounts maintained by the business. Many of these transactions involve deposits in excess of US$10,000. In addition, Byrd used bank accounts in the name of an alias, Robert Smith, to conduct financial transactions intended to launder drug proceeds, including paying personal bills and expenses.The conspirators used freight companies to ship drugs obtained in Arizona, California and elsewhere to distribution points in Baltimore, and other east coast destinations.Rasan Byrd supervised the Arizona-based activities of organisation. Under the direction of Richard Byrd, Rasan coordinated the acquisition of large quantities of marijuana and cocaine from Mexican sources of supply and supervised several workers who weighed and packaged the drugs in a way to avoid detection by law enforcement.On April 22, 2013, law enforcement officers in Arizona seized 16 kilograms of cocaine and over 600 pounds of marijuana which were about to be shipped to Byrd’s Baltimore-based distributors.The Baltimore distributors included Jerome Castle, Joseph Byrd, and Harold Byrd. Castle supervised the Baltimore operation, taking delivery of the drugs, selling them, and collecting and counting proceeds from the drug sales. On April 22, 2013, law enforcement officers in Maryland seized approximately 350 pounds of marijuana and over 10 kilograms of cocaine from businesses and residences utilized by Castle, Joseph Byrd, and Harold Byrd. In addition, almost US$58,000 in currency and jewellery valued at more than US$400,000 were recovered at the residence of Jerome Castle. The money and jewellery were also proceeds from illegal drug sales.In addition, over US$1 million was seized in Arizona from Richard Byrd in early 2011. In July 2012, an additional US $372,000 was seized from a residence in Arizona occupied by Richard and Rasan Byrd.These money seizures were proceeds from east coast drug sales intended for use in acquiring additional quantities of marijuana and cocaine.During the course of this conspiracy more than 150 kilograms of cocaine and 20,000 kilograms of marijuana were acquired and distributed by Richard Byrd and his associates.Brothers Rasan Byrd, age 41, of Houston, Texas, Harold Alexander Byrd, age 27, of Phoenix, Maryland, and Joseph Ibreham Byrd, age 35, of Owings Mills, Maryland, previously pleaded guilty to their roles in the conspiracy. Rasan was sentenced to 14 years in prison and Harold and Joseph were each sentenced to 10 years in prison.Jerome Adolfo Castle, a/k/a Dontwon Burris, age 37, a Jamaican citizen residing in Pikesville, Maryland, previously pleaded guilty to his role in the conspiracy and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.Castle was also ordered to forfeit US$57,997 in cash, his interest in seven Baltimore properties, jewellery valued at more than US$411,000, 98 pairs of men’s shoes, two laptop computers and an I-Pad, seven firearms and ammunition, as well as six vehicles, including a 2009 Jaguar XF Premium.Maurice Jones, age 62, and Richard Drummond, age 40, both of Baltimore, also pleaded guilty to their roles in the conspiracy and were sentenced to seven years in prison and two years in prison, respectively.last_img read more
