first_imgLSU DOWNS KENTUCKY AT THE BUZZER IN RUPP 🚨pic.twitter.com/oLgbwk031G— NCAA March Madness (@marchmadness) February 13, 2019The officials reviewed the play and determined Bigby-Williams’ released the ball before time expired, giving LSU a 73-71 victory.Bigby-Williams, however, appeared to touch the ball while it was still in the cylinder. But, basket interference is not a call that can be reviewed via replay.The ball is clearly within the cylinder when it is touched. Should have been goaltending. But ⁦@SethOnHoops⁩ says they can’t review that… so it was missed by officials in real time. Great win for LSU, but game should be in OT. pic.twitter.com/foW5HFzWCL— Dari Nowkhah (@ESPNDari) February 13, 2019Kentucky forward EJ Montgomery also may have put his hand through the net on Mays’ initial shot. No. 19 LSU picked up a road win over No. 5 Kentucky on a controversial tip-in at the buzzer Tuesday.The teams were tied with less than two seconds to play when Tigers guard Skylar Mays attacked the paint and attempted a layup. The shot bounced off the rim, but forward Kavell Bigby-Williams tapped the ball through the basket as time expired. Everyone is talking about the tip-in, but this was a pretty clear goaltend by E.J. Montgomery on the initial shot. The refs missed the call against Kavell Bigby-Williams, but that tip-in shouldn’t have mattered if they had seen Montgomery’s hand go through the rim. pic.twitter.com/AJwTWrs2s2— Rob Dauster (@RobDauster) February 13, 2019Kentucky forward PJ Washington tallied a game-high 20 points, along with nine rebounds, in the losing effort. LSU star Tremont Waters had 15 points but shot just three of 13 from the field.The loss snapped Kentucky’s 10-game winning streak and dropped it to 20-4 (9-2 SEC) this season. LSU improved to 20-4 (10-1 SEC).last_img read more

Regent Theater this week: Suicide Squad

first_imgThis week at the Regent Theater: Suicide Squad (see trailer below).Schedule: Friday 7 and 9:45 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, 2 and 7 p.m.This Friday’s feature film: PG-13 (for sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, suggestive content and language). Time: 2 hours 3 minutes.Movie Synopsis: From director David Ayer (“Fury,” “End of Watch”) comes “Suicide Squad,” starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (“Ali,” “The Pursuit of Happyness”), Oscar winner Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Focus”), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix’s “House of Cards”) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”). It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?Rotten Tomatoes rating (movie critics collective approval ratings): 26%. Audience review: 68% liked it. Critic’s consensus: Suicide Squad boasts a talented cast and a little more humor than previous DCEU efforts, but they aren’t enough to save the disappointing end result from a muddled plot, thinly written characters, and choppy directing.For more information on great movies being played visit the Wellington Regent website at https://www.facebook.com/wellington.regent?fref=tsFollow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.
