A Georgia bar owner was struggling to pay her employees, and she decided to take down the dollar bills that her customers at The Sand Bar on Tybee Island have been stapling on the walls and ceilings for years.Jennifer Knox says it took three-and-a-half-days to remove all the money. She ended up taking down a total of $3,700. Knox distributed the cash to her bartenders and musicians who work at the sand bar. They each received about $600.Some customers later donated extra money for the cause.

CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh, (CMC) – Inspirational captain Darren Sammy narrowly missed out on one of the fastest-ever Twenty20 half-centuries as he helped Rajshahi Kings break a two-match losing skid with a convincing 30-run victory over Comilla Victorians here Saturday.Opting for first knock at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Kings piled up an impressive 185 for seven off their 20 overs, with Man-of-the-Match Sammy smashing an unbeaten 47 from just 14 deliveries.England’s Luke Wright got 42 while opener Mominul Haque chipped in with 23.Sammy arrived at the crease at 125 for five in the 17th over and proceeded to belt a four and half-dozen sixes in a destructive innings, adding a astonishing 44 runs off 11 deliveries for the eighth wicket with Mohammad Sami (5 not out).Significantly, the former West Indies captain also plundered 32 from the final over of the innings bowled by young left-arm seamer Mohammad Saifuddin – the most expensive over ever in the Bangladesh Premier League.Starting the over on 17, Sammy picked up a boundary to square leg off the first delivery before depositing the second ball over the ropes at long on.He sprinted two to deep mid-wicket off the third and then carted sixes over long-off, cover and straight overhead – off the last three legitimate deliveries of the over.Saifuddin, who had previously proven miserly in a three-over spell, ended with three for 50.In reply, captain Tamim Iqbal stroked 63 off 45 balls at the top of the order while Shoaib Malik chipped in with 45 from 26, but Victorians were dismissed for 155 in the final over.Fast bowler Mohammed Sami was brilliant with four for nine from four overs while former Barbados and West Indies all-rounder, Dwayne Smith, picked up two for 27 with his medium pace.In the feature match of the doubleheader, West Indies superstar opener Chris Gayle struck 33 as Rangpur Riders’ revival continued with a three-wicket win over Chittagong Vikings in a dramatic finish.Set a challenging 177, Riders reached their target off the final ball of the innings when Thisara Perera clobbered fast bowler Taskin Ahmed for a six over mid-wicket, with three runs required.Perera finished on 28 not out while Mohammed Mithum top-scored with 44 and captain Mashrafe Mortaza, 42.Gayle faced 25 balls and counted a four and three sixes, putting on a valuable 60 for the second wicket with Mashrafe after New Zealander Brendon McCullum perished cheaply for 15 in the sixth over.Vikings had earlier tallied 176 for seven off their 20 overs with South African Stiaan van Zyl top-scoring with 68 off 40 deliveries. read more
Head coach Bobby Hurley threw that same press on after his team went down 12-2 early thanks to a trio of 3-pointers from Utomi, who would also drain a step-back three to beat the shot clock and put USC up 24-11 with 11 and a half minutes left in the first half. Senior guard Jonah Mathews led all scorers with 23 points on 58% shooting from the field, while graduate transfer guard Daniel Utomi dropped 19 points on 4-of-8 shooting from behind the 3-point line, along with 10 rebounds. But USC’s shooting steadied its lead all half, going 7-for-11 from downtown as opposed to ASU’s 5-for-14. The Trojans also outrebounded their opponent 21-11, allowing for 10 second-chance points to the Sun Devils’ 2. “The seniors are supposed to help us win a big game on our home court and they did that,” Enfield said. Redshirt senior guard Daniel Utomi shot 50% from the field during a standout performance Saturday night. (Peter Gastis | Daily Trojan) The press was effective in limiting USC’s offense once again, forcing the Trojans to turn the ball over 14 times in the first half, resulting in 14 points. Saturday’s game marked the first “green game” at Galen Center, an initiative by USC to turn the arena into a zero-waste venue. The win moved USC to fifth place with a matchup against UCLA at home this Saturday. The USC men’s basketball team picked up a huge 71-61 win over Arizona State at Galen Center Saturday. Going into the game, the Sun Devils and Trojans were third and sixth, respectively, in the Pac-12 standings and with the conference tournament approaching, every remaining game can greatly impact the Trojans’ shot at a first-round bye. The Trojans were able to settle in during the second half, surrendering just five turnovers. “[Utomi]’s definitely the X-factor of the team,” Mathews said. “If he plays well, we’re for sure playing good.” Senior guard Jonah Mathews shredded the Sun Devils’ defense Saturday night for a career-high 23 points. (Peter Gastis | Daily Trojan) ASU cut the score to 26-21 after a floater by junior guard Remy Martin was followed by a steal and a 3-pointer from redshirt senior guard Rob Edwards. Adlesh played 19 minutes after not seeing significant game action in two of the last three matchups. USC fell to the Sun Devils in Tempe 66-64 on Feb. 8 as the squad was unable to score in the last two minutes after going up 64-59, largely due to heavy defensive pressure from Arizona State’s full-court press that forced 18 turnovers in the second half. “[Adlesh] is a captain for a reason,” Enfield said. “He’s one of the best teammates I’ve ever coached.” Martin, a contender for Pac-12 Player of the Year award and who also came off a 30-point game in a loss at UCLA, led ASU in scoring with 22 points. “It takes a team to guard [Martin],” Enfield said. However, ASU couldn’t keep up with USC the remainder of the game. The Trojans shot 45% from three and 50% from the field, not to mention the 11-rebound advantage they claimed. Senior forward Nick Rakocevic posted a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds, and graduate transfer guard Quinton Adlesh made two big threes down the stretch while playing fantastic defense on the other end of the floor. “Just break the press and run our plays,” Adlesh said of the adjustments at halftime. “Just relax and settle in to our offense.” ASU went on an 11-0 scoring run midway through the second half to cut the lead to 54-53 after the Trojans had been in control up 12. Mathews was finally able to break the nearly five-minute scoring drought with a strong finish and a foul that was followed by a 3-pointer on the next possession with 6:53 to go. Head coach Andy Enfield said Utomi and the veterans’ leadership was key to USC’s winning effort. The win could prove to be huge for a USC team on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament and is looking to improve its seeding in Las Vegas. USC can help out both of those causes when it hosts crosstown rival UCLA at Galen Center Saturday at 12:15 p.m. read more

DENVER >> In the city a mile high, and by margin a mile wide, this was bound to happen.The Clippers and Coach Doc Rivers essentially conceded Thursday’s game against the Denver Nuggets at Pepsi Center when they left Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan at home for rest. On the second night of back-to-back games, the remaining Clippers lost, 129-114.It was the Clippers’ third consecutive loss and made the playoff picture all the less favorable. The Clippers failed to gain ground on fourth-place Utah, which remains three games ahead of the Clippers in the Western Conference after losing to Cleveland. What’s more startling is that the Clippers have only a half-game edge on Oklahoma City, which sits in sixth after blasting Toronto on Thursday, and a one-game lead on seventh-place Memphis.That first-round matchup with Utah that looked like a lock earlier in the week has gotten more complicated.With LeBron James and the Cavaliers visiting on Saturday, the Clippers could be in a tie for sixth by the middle of the weekend.Rather than try to maintain pace in the crowded West, the Clippers used Thursday’s game as sort of an exhibition for players who have reached, “Oh, he’s still on the team?” status.Paul Pierce, who had not played since his Feb. 5 sendoff in Boston, played 16 minutes and scored five points, while rookie Brice Johnson played the final three minutes of the fourth quarter, made a basket, blocked a shot, grabbed a rebound and had an assist. J.J. Redick led the Clippers with 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting, while Chris Paul finished with 18 points and 14 assists.The Clippers fell behind by double digits in the second quarter, however, and never recovered. They trailed by 25 in the fourth period.The Nuggets were led by a triple-double from emerging star center Nikola Jokic, who posted 17 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists.Without Jordan or Griffin available to help slow Jokic, the Clippers were outscored 58-36 in the paint.It wasn’t as though the Clippers caught the Nuggets at full strength. Denver played without key wings Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari, both of whom sat out with injuries. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error read more

Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers have met in matchups with high stakes before, including an NFC championship game. The two quarterbacks shine brightly on the marquee but will need the best of their supporting casts to add another playoff victory to their Super Bowl-winning resumes.Here’s everything to know about betting on Seahawks vs. Packers in the NFL playoffs, including updated odds, trends and our expert’s prediction for the NFC divisional game.MORE: Get the latest NFL odds & betting trends at Sports InsiderSeahawks vs. Packers odds for NFL playoffsSpread: Packers by 4Point total: 45.5Odds: Seahawks -108, Packers -112The Seahawks have been a little more than field-goal underdogs all week. On a neutral field, this game would essentially be a pick ’em. Lambeau is a tough place to play, but Seattle has been very good on the road outdoors this season. The Packers have gone only 5-5 in their past 10 playoff home games.Seahawks vs. Packers all-time seriesThe Packers hold a 13-9 edge. The teams didn’t play in the regular season. The Seahawks won the most recent meeting, 27-24 in Seattle in November of 2018. Before then the Packers held a three-game winning streak. The Packers lost the NFC championship game in Seattle five years ago, 28-22 in overtime after holding a 16-0 lead.Three trends to know— The Seahawks are 8-7-2 against the spread this season. The Packers are 10-6. 55 percent of bettors like the Seahawks to keep it close and cover.— Only 8 of 17 Seahawks games have gone over the point total. Only 6 of 16 Packers game have gone over. For that reason, 62 percent of bettors like the under.— The Seahawks have covered only once in their past five games. The Packers are 4-4 against the spread in their past eight games.IYER: 49ers will ride playoff dominance right through Seahawks or PackersThree things to watch’Beast Mode’ and the Seahawks’ running gameLongtime power back Marshawn Lynch has returned out of necessity because of season-ending injuries to Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. Rookie Travis Homer has stepped into the bigger all-around role in the backfield. The Seahawks have struggled to run the ball in the past two games against the 49ers and the Eagles. The Packers present a vulnerable run defense and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer has showed he’s not deviating from the run-heavy approach with a replacement committee.Davante Adams and the Packers’ passing game.Rodgers didn’t have the most prolific season because he was missing Adams, his go-to wide receiver, for a good chunk of the season with a toe injury. He also had a hard time finding reliable targets beyond Adams who weren’t running backs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. Allen Lazard has stepped up of late to be a big playmaker, but other wideouts and the tight ends have had limited contributions. The Seahawks’ secondary has Shaquill Griffin and not much else daunting. Rodgers needs to trust and let it rip to his complementary targets.Matt LaFleur vs. Pete CarrollLaFleur, 40, is coaching the Packers in his first career NFL playoff game as a head coach. Carroll, 68, has plenty of experience on the other side, given his team has consistently made the playoffs with Wilson. Will LaFleur come out like former colleague Kyle Shanahan did against the Vikings with an impressive debut in his current capacity? He’s shown his chops all season and will need to be on point to counteract Carroll’s rah-rah firing up of his team. When the Seahawks (12-5) travel to play the Packers (13-3) in Lambeau Field for Sunday’s NFL divisional playoff game (6:40 p.m. ET, NBC), a trip to next Sunday’s NFC championship game in San Francisco will be on the line.Seattle, the No. 5 seed, will be looking for a mild upset over Green Bay, the No. 2 seed. The Seahawks, after losing their final two regular-season games, beat the Eagles on the road 17-9 in the wild-card round. The Packers won their final two regular-season games to win the NFC North and grab the conference’s second first-round bye. Stat that mattersRodgers was a much better QB at home than on the road this season. In Lambeau Field, he went 7-1 with 14 TDs to only 2 INTs for a 101.6 rating at nearly 8.7 yards per attempt. He also was sacked only 12 times in those games and rushed for a total of 107 yards and another TD while also passing for an average of 276.1 yards per game.Seahawks vs. Packers predictionThe Packers’ defense will have problems with the Seahawks’ running game and Wilson. But the Seahawks will equally struggle when Rodgers throws to Adams, Lazard, Jones and Williams. Wide receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett will make a few big plays for Wilson, but Rodgers will raise his game to match and deliver the game-winning drive late.Packers 30, Seahawks 27 read more
