The NCAA purchased the preseason and postseason National Invitation Tournaments in August 2005. The following year, the NCAA instituted some new changes to the postseason playoff, most notably a seeding process. From 2006 through 2016, a top-three seed always made the NIT. Some years were funkier than others, with a few dark horses finding their way to Madison Square Garden for the semifinals, but chalk won out more often than not in the past decade. You can throw all past precedent out the window this year, however, as no top-three seed made the semifinals and only two seeds higher than No. 6 (No. 4 seeds TCU and Central Florida) made it that far. No. 6 seed Georgia Tech and No. 8 seed CS Bakersfield will join them. Here's a look at the latest bracket and semifinal schedule, as well as some predictions for Tuesday's games. Predictions No. 6 Georgia Tech vs.

Oliver Burke says he can't thank Nottingham Forest enough for what the club did for him, but insists he felt he needed to leave the Reds in order to better his career. The 19-year-old made a move to German side RB Leipzig at the end of August for what was a Scottish record £13 million transfer fee. I can't knock Nottingham Forest for what they've done for me, said Burke. Obviously they've helped me a lot, and they've got me to a certain stage in my career and I can't...

" Parents of students at Rockville High School are upset with the school's administration for allowing Henry Sanchez-Milian, 18, and Jose Montano, 17, to attend the school as freshmen. Both of the illegal immigrants had been apprehended in 2016, according to the Washington Post . Montano, who is from El Salvador, was apprehended in April 2016, five months after his 16th birthday. Sanchez Milian, from Guatemala, was caught in August of that year, days before he turned 18. Border Patrol officials stopped both teens near McAllen, Tex., and detained them for less than the legal limit of 72 hours, then handed them over to HHS’s Office for Refugee Resettlement, according to a federal official with direct knowledge of the case.

'Continue to be vigilant' Prime Minister Charles Michel said the government was "following this situation as it develops" in the Flemish-speaking northern city. "We continue to be vigilant. Our security services did an excellent job in Antwerp, thanks," he tweeted. Meir is the main shopping street in Antwerp's historic centre and is mostly pedestrianised. It is one of the most important shopping areas in the country. With soldiers deployed at key sites, Belgium has been on high alert since March 22 last year when suicide bombers attacked Zaventem airport and Maalbeek metro station that left 32 people dead and more than 320 wounded. Belgium suffered a further shock in August when a machete-wielding man shouting "Allahu akbar" (God is greatest) attacked two policewomen in the industrial town of Charleroi. He badly injured one in the face, before a third officer shot him dead.

Dagan said Jackson moved out in 2015 without paying. When Jackson moved in in 2014, he indicated he was a military veteran and was in college, studying toward becoming a lawyer, Dagan said. Jackson left behind a collection of war movies in the apartment, the former neighbor said. Jackson was in the Army from March 2009 to August 2012 and worked as a military intelligence analyst, the Army said. Deployed in Afghanistan from December 2010 to November 2011, he earned several medals and attained the rank of specialist. The circumstances of his discharge are unclear; the Army cites privacy laws that prevent releasing such details. Bias attacks have more than doubled this year in New York, and there have been nine bias crimes against black people reported, up from five in the same time period last year.

A statement released by the Trump campaign claimedMr. Manafort [would] direct the campaign’s activities in areas including delegate operations, Washington, DC outreach and the DC office.” But as Manafort’s ties to the pro-Russian Yanukovych first came under scrutiny last August, he was ousted. Trump also seemed to dislike Manafort’s attempts to make him more presidential. After Manafort’s exit, Lewandowski told Politico , “ let’s get back to what brought Donald Trump here, which is allowing him to be authentic.” The New York Times story could not come at a more unfortunate time for the Trump White House. On Monday, FBI Director James Comey testified that the bureau was investigating ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Specifically, Comey stated the agency he leads is “ investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.

DUBAI: Bahraini authorities on Thursday released award-winning photographer Mohammed Al-Shaikh after holding him for more than 24 hours over his work for AFP, according to his family. Relatives of Al-Shaikh, who worked for AFP in Bahrain for several years until his press permit was denied renewal last August, had been detained at Manama airport late Tuesday on his return from a trip overseas. His family said he does not face charges. Bahraini authorities did not respond to AFP's requests for an explanation for his arrest. Al-Shaikh won the 2014 Bayeux-Calvados prize for his coverage of events in the tiny Gulf kingdom, rocked from 2011 onwards by an Arab Spring-inspired uprising and ensuing crackdown. Rights groups regularly criticise the Sunni-ruled kingdom over its harsh treatment of dissenters. Last year saw a further tightening of restrictions on journalists.

But since then, he’s been developing Baby Driver , a terrific-looking movie that features Ansel Elgort as a getaway driver who relies on his tunes. There’s a doomed-sounding heist in the midst of the film too, and a cast that features Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jon Bernthal, and Jamie Foxx, amongst others. You’d take it as a given that an Edgar Wright film would have a killer soundtrack. In the case of Baby Driver , music seems even more integral than usual, and there’s a sporting chance we wont just get one of the best films of the year, but one of the best soundtrack albums too. Baby Driver pulls up in August. 6. Star Wars: Episode VIII A less bold studio might have gone with a safe pair of hands when it comes to writing and directing Star Wars: Episode VIII , so it's refreshing to see a filmmaker like Rian Johnson handed the keys to the (former) Lucas-verse.

"I live in extreme anger," said the father, in tears, declining to be named. It is a common complaint. Last August, several parents in southern beach town Vung Tau filed complaints against a 76-year-old man, accusing him of molesting seven girls between 2012 and 2016. Police initially said they could not press charges because of lack of evidence. Finally last week, amid mounting public pressure, prosecutors said they would re-examine the case. "Paedophilia-related crimes are often handled slowly," said lawyer Le Luan, who is representing Nga's daughter. Sometimes that legal foot-dragging has devastating consequences. In February a 13-year-old girl in southern Ca Mau province committed suicide, after she was alleged to have been continuously abused by a neighbour. State media said police did not charge the suspect because of lack of evidence. The public has been quick to pounce on the perceived lack of action, with Facebook becoming the forum for anger in a country where discussion and debate is closely monitored.
