Mason Greenwood struck twice as Manchester United came from a goal down to thrash Bournemouth 5-2 at Old Trafford and move into the top four.Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes were also on target during a wild contest where the Cherries took the lead 15 minutes into the contest. United were sloppy in the opening moments, with Paul Pogba lacking precision with his passing, and United were left stunned when the relegation-threatened Cherries took the lead.Junior Stanislas saw his cross-shot blocked in the area but the winger was alive to the rebound and played a clever nutmeg through Harry Maguire’s legs.From a tight angle, he squeezed his shot past David De Gea at the near post – another disappointing moment for the under-fire Spaniard.But Man United had been in fine form coming into this match and showed it with the quality of their equaliser.Rashford found Fernandes inside and he swept the ball across to 18-year-old Greenwood, who thumped his effort into the top corner with a helping hand from Aaron Ramsdale. As United began to ramp up the pressure, Bournemouth were guilty of some sloppy defending inside the box and referee Mike Dean pointed the spot when Adam Smith handled.Rashford stepped up and slotted underneath Ramsdale to give the hosts the lead.United got the all important third goal on the stroke of half time through the in-form Martial.The Frenchman cut in from the left and curled a stunning effort into the top corner.The Red Devils had an almighty scare a minute after the interval when Arnaud Danjuma came off the bench only to hit the woodwork from a tight angle. Eric Bailly, on a substitute, then handled the ball inside his own area under no real pressure and this time Bournemouth had the penalty.The decision stood after a lengthy VAR review and Josh King dispatched the spot-kick.Bournemouth had the ball in the end again to make it 3-3 after a brilliant finish from Danjuma, but the flag was up for marginal offside.No sooner had Bournemouth recollected themselves, United made it 4-2 with a piece of brilliance from Grenwood, striking from a tight angle on his supposedly weaker right foot.RelatedPosts Gundogan tests positive for coronavirus Derby County want Jordon Ibe Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Another five minutes went by and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men had five goals for themselves.Fernandes, who had made two of the goals, struck a free-kick from 20 yards into the corner and Ramsdale had no chance once again.Rashford thought he had his second – and United’s sixth – when he tapped home from Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s cross but the flag was correctly raised.Solskjaer has been desperate for them to play.They move into fourth ahead of Chelsea’s game later on – and on this evidence it will take some effort to stop them from finishing in the Champions League places.Tags: ANthony MartialBournemouthBruno FernadesChelseaManchester UnitedMarcus RashfordPaul Pogba
President Trump says the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination is “rigged” against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. Trump’s comments came after both Mayor Pete and Senator Amy Klobuchar dropped out of the race and endorsed Joe Biden. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has spent huge amounts of money on advertisements and hopes to make a big splash on Super Tuesday but he will not be spending any time in the 14 states casting ballots. Instead, Mike Bloomberg is spending Super Tuesday in West Palm Beach.The Super Tuesday states include California, Texas, Virginia, Colorado, North Carolina, Massachusetts and Minnesota. The billionaire from New York will spend Super Tuesday in South Florida, including holding a rally at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, where he’ll pay for parking. Today is Super Tuesday and voters in 14 states and American Samoa will see a new name on the ballot when they cast their primary vote. For the first time democrat candidate Mike Bloomberg’s name will be on the ballot even though his campaign has spent a half billion dollars of his own money. More than 1400 of the nearly 2000 delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination are up for grabs. BLOOMBERG IN FLORIDA: @MikeBloomberg is skipping the 14 states casting votes for Super Tuesday, option for a round of stops in Florida instead. Includes a lunch time stop in ORLANDO and a 7PM rally of sorts with supporters in West Palm Beach. @MyNews13 @BN9 pic.twitter.com/3AbnN8SRmc— Greg Angel (@NewsGuyGreg) March 2, 2020

After lifting the social ban on The Row on Friday, Vice President for Student Affairs Michael L. Jackson said the first weekend without the social ban went relatively well, despite an incident Friday night.Party · A female student fell off an outdoor staircase at the Sigma Chi Fraternity Friday night. The incident should not affect Student Affairs ending the social ban. – Kevin Nguyen | Daily TrojanA female student fell one story onto concrete from an outdoor staircase at the Sigma Chi Fraternity at 6:30 p.m. Friday and was transported to the hospital unconscious but still breathing. Jackson said her condition was stable as of Tuesday.He said Student Affairs’ investigation of the incident only concerns Sigma Chi.“We don’t know the full circumstances under which [she] slipped, and believe that it was a small social gathering,” Jackson said. “We’re still trying to ascertain what happened. Of course, our first thoughts go to her and her family.”Student Affairs will make sure Sigma Chi acted appropriately before and after the incident, and expects to resolve the matter by the end of the week. He said other fraternities had no problems this weekend.“As far as I can tell, everyone else did what they were supposed to do this weekend,” Jackson said. “It’s ironic that this occurred on the same day that the ban was lifted, but you can’t predict when things will happen.”The implementation of recommendations from the Greek Task Force, created last year when the social ban began, allowed Jackson to end the ban. The Interfraternity Council also voted to have a dry pre-rush, which Jackson said was successful.Jackson said working with students to make the Greek community safe is an ongoing process.“Most of the fraternities and sororities are works in progress,” Jackson said. “We’re always working with new leadership to constantly improve the community.”The Greek Task Force has implemented two of four objectives. First, they had 250 members of Greek executive boards attend a meeting Aug. 19 with the Dept. of Public Safety about holding large events safely.“They did an awesome job,” said IFC President Pat Lauer. “We became educated on what to do to keep people safe and how to have big social events in a safe environment.”Lauer said there are plans for the event to occur annually.The Greek community is also in the process of creating a Greek Judicial Board for all councils.Lauer said the council would address incidents like those that occurred last spring.“Each council has their own ways of dealing with judicial matters,” Lauer said. “This board will be to handle high profile cases that affect the entire Greek community.”An all-council new-member education program will be also held in coordination with the Office of Student Affairs in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center on Sept. 18 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. New sorority and fraternity members will attend two-hour-long workshops and listen to speakers talk about alcohol and pledging.“The whole idea is to educate new members of the Greek community,” Lauer said. “It’ll be a time for the community to become familiar with [Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards] and meet DPS so they can get an understanding of how the Greek community is run.”Ayushi Gummadi, president of the Panhellenic Council, said the goal of the event is to spark a change in Greek culture and prevent dangerous situations, like the drinking that sent some students to the hospital at the beginning of last year.“Given everything that happened last fall, the idea is to create a culture change,” Gummadi said. “This is something we hope becomes a tradition every year with new members. We’re offering these kinds of education and resources from the beginning in order to create a culture change.”Risk management teams in each fraternity and sorority house have also worked to establish better communication with law enforcement and review incident protocol.“We’ve been extra cautious about trying to play by the rules,” Lauer said. “We want to have events in an atmosphere that’s both safe and fun.”Lauer also said IFC specifically spearheaded a Greek Liaison Program this year where a DPS officer is assigned as a specific point of contact for small groups of houses.“We’re going to really stress that they meet up regularly and that everyone is in the loop,” Lauer said. “We need to prove that we monitor ourselves and self-govern. This was spotty in the past and there was sometimes an ‘us vs. them’ mentality.”DPS Chief Carey Drayton said the Greek system’s relationship with DPS is better than most.“I would stack our relationship with the Greek community with any law enforcement relationship,” Drayton said. “Fraternities asked us to come to their meetings last week. That doesn’t happen in a lot of places.”Lauer said the IFC is now communicating continuously with DPS.“All the fraternities are on the same page,” Lauer said. “We’ve all tried really hard to stop our members from doing things that could jeopardize the entire community.”Andy Winningham, a member of Phi Delta Theta and a senior majoring in business administration, said the communication between enforcement and the Greek community will run more smoothly.“The Row will just be more fine tuned now that we see the heightened importance of it,” Winningham said. “After what happened last year, houses really had to crack down on risk management.”Gummadi said that PHC has also seen good things on The Row this weekend.“All the presidents have been extremely collaborative and everyone’s been respectful of the rules we have in place,” Gummadi said. “We’re looking forward to further collaboration with the university and making this the best year possible.”Lauer said IFC’s priority is to prove that it has earned the right to monitor itself.“The biggest thing is to prove that we can self-govern now that the social ban has been lifted,” Lauer said. “We want to avoid any problems like the ones we had last year.”
Syracuse Class of 2016 recruit Michael Moore failed to qualify academically and will not join the Orange for the upcoming season, head coach Dino Babers said after Friday’s practice.At the Orange’s media day, Babers said Moore was struggling to get certification through Syracuse, not the NCAA. This is the second straight season Syracuse has had a defensive back not qualify. Last season, Marquise Blair failed to qualify through the NCAA Clearinghouse.Moore, a 6-foot-2 cornerback from Palomar (California) College, had three interceptions and 10 pass breakups in his one season at Palomar. He was recruited to bolster SU’s 115th-ranked pass defense, which gave up an average of 273.8 yards per game through the air.For more preseason coverage, check out our training camp blog with regular updatesWith Wayne Morgan hurt, Moore could have helped add depth at the position for the Orange.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Facebook Twitter Google+ Every player listed as No. 1 at his position on the post-spring depth chart in the defensive backfield is a returning player who received playing time last year. The Orange also added freshmen Scoop Bradshaw, Carl Jones, Evan Foster and Devon Clarke, who is injured, too.Babers said he had no update on James Pierre, who also has yet to qualify through the NCAA. Pierre chose Syracuse over offers from Miami, Louisville, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Wisconsin. He initially had committed to North Carolina but was denied admission.

Published on March 2, 2017 at 10:06 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (17-13, 9-8 Atlantic Coast) hopes for an NCAA Tournament resume-boosting win when it takes on Pittsburgh (17-13, 8-9) at 4 p.m. on Sunday in the Carrier Dome. Syracuse lost, 71-65, the last time these two teams met two weeks ago in Atlanta.Here’s how The Daily Orange beat writers think the game will unfold.Connor Grossman (17-13)Bee carefulSyracuse 63, Georgia Tech 60Syracuse shouldn’t think it can waltz into its regular season finale and pry a win away from Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets are on the cusp of their first NCAA Tournament berth in seven seasons, and a win in the Carrier Dome could get GT on the right side of the bubble. But on its home court, SU’s offense will be markedly improved from the sluggish performance it showed in Atlanta earlier this month. Georgia Tech’s offensive woes will persist, and the Orange comes away with a significant win before heading to the Barclays Center for the conference tournament.Matt Schneidman (13-17)Harmless stingSyracuse 68, Georgia Tech 62AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTo spare itself at least a little sweat heading into the ACC tournament, Syracuse needs to beat Georgia Tech at home. The Orange’s visit to Atlanta got away in the second half, but don’t expect that same offensively lethargic SU team to show up on Senior Day in the Carrier Dome. The Orange secures a bye in Brooklyn, and more importantly may not even need to win a game there in order to make the Big Dance.Paul Schwedelson (18-12)Trending topicsSyracuse 65, Georgia Tech 58The 71 points Syracuse allowed to Georgia Tech on Feb. 19 were the second fewest it’s allowed in a game since Jan. 14. The Orange’s only home conference loss came against then-No. 8 Louisville. Entering the final regular season game, the trends are clear. For whatever reason, SU is a different team at home. Whether or not Saturday is Syracuse’s last game in the Carrier Dome this season — if SU plays in the NIT, it would likely host games — the Orange is good when it plays there. Comments
