No. 8 CS Bakersfield Georgia Tech junior Ben Lammers is third in Division I in blocks with 3.34 per game . The 6'10", 227-pound center has arguably been the NIT's Most Valuable Player thus far, as he has averaged 15 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 4.3 blocks and 3.3 steals per game. The stat sheet-stuffing Lammers also produced the best individual performance of the tournament when he scored 20 points, blocked eight shots and made four steals in a 74-66 win at Ole Miss, who had just beaten Syracuse in the Carrier Dome. He should be a problem for CS Bakersfield, although the Roadrunners' run to the NIT semifinals has been remarkable. CS Bakersfield beat Cal in the first round, 73-66 after outscoring the Golden Bears 44-19 in the first half. While Cal's two best players, sophomore forward (and potential first-round NBA draft pick) Ivan Rabb and senior guard Jabari Bird, were absent from the game, it shouldn't take too much away from the Roadrunners' accomplishment, as they still beat a Pac-12 team on the road.

The speed of technological change had, in this case, outstripped what had often seemed a glacial rate of progress since Wembley was first identified as the new national stadium’s home in 1996. Yet in context it was more a quirk than a bump in the road and, a decade on, the impression is of a facility more comfortable in its own skin than when it opened its doors under a lingering cloud of debate about its financing and the very role it ought to play.

Image Source . The attacker appears to be a middle-aged Asian man. No manifesto of his intention has surfaced as of yet—a crucial piece of evidence needed to support the authorities claim of terrorism. Here is an image of what authorities believe occurred during the attack. The attacker was driving an SUV that hit 12 pedestrians in the initial event. One witness reported: We were taking photos of Big Ben and we saw all the people running towards us, and then there was an Asian guy in about his 40s carrying a knife about seven or eight inches long. And then there were three shots fired, and then we crossed the road and looked over. The man was on the floor with blood. He had a lightweight jacket on, dark trousers and a shirt. He was running through those gates, towards Parliament, and the police were chasing him. More reports compiled via Zero Hedge : Mail journalist Quentin Letts saw the incident out of the window of a Commons office.
