CS Bakersfield went on to defeat Mountain West championship finalist and 24-game winner Colorado State and 27-game winner and Sun Belt regular-season champion Texas-Arlington on the road. In other words, CS Bakersfield hasn't lucked its way into the semifinals. N o one outside Bakersfield thought the Roadrunners would advance out of the first round. A NIT championship certainly isn't out of the question for this team. That being said, Georgia Tech will be CS Bakersfield's toughest test yet, and with Lammers playing as well as he is right now and causing chaos down low, it's hard to see the Roadrunners winning. The Yellow Jackets will win a close game that goes down to the final minute. Pick: Georgia Tech No. 4 Central Florida vs. No. 4 TCU The block party could continue in the next NIT semifinal as 7'6" UCF sophomore center Tacko Fall blocks 2.

Woody Harrelson is giving up a few tidbits about his upcoming Star Wars role. While the cast photo makes it clear that Harrelson has a role in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off about the life of the young Han Solo, few details are known about the film let alone Harrelsons role in it. When he stopped by The Tonight Show on Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon was determined to get some answers out of him, and while Harrelson skillfully avoided spilling the beans, he did drop some promising details. Im playing a guy named Beckett, who is kind of a criminal, and I am a mentor to Han, he said, adding: Thats all I can say. When Fallon sneakily put the cast photo in front of him, Harrelson wouldnt confirm or deny that the cast, which includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo and Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian, were sitting on Solos ship the Millennium Falcon.

Some conservative lawmakers oppose the plan, arguing it does not go far enough to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, and may vote against it. The California Democrat also appeared to take a shot at Trump voters, saying they voted for a president who will take away a program that benefits them. "More than $600 billion transferred upward at the expense of working families," Pelosi said. "Ironically, some of these families are people who voted for Trump, like 57 percent of, in some areas, 57 percent of the people voted for Trump are on the Affordable [Care Act]." Pelosi also claimed during the press briefing that Republicans want to make Americans sick. "That's their goal, to make America sick again," Pelosi said. "Make America Sick Again" is a slogan that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) introduced earlier this year to disparage Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare, playing off of Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again.

It looks like there might be hope for the live-action adaptation of Mulan to be a musical after all! As you're probably still enraged over, the film's director Niki Caro recently said the Disney classic will not feature any songs "much to the horror of my children."

More than 30 others followed suit by the end of his junior season. When he wasn't starring for Lancaster or on the AAU circuit, Thornwell was toughening up in pickup games against 30- and 40-year-old men on an outdoor court known as The Hilltop, right next to Distinguished Kuts barbershop. "They'd put together tournaments with teams from nearby cities," Thornwell's younger brother Quatavius says. "He was playing in those starting in the seventh or eighth grade. Even way back then, everyone could tell he had something special." Talented as he was, though, Thornton knows that most people believed he'd eventually succumb to the ills of his hometown, just like so many standout athletes had done before him. "The odds were against me from the jump," Thornwell says. "People said, 'You're not going to be able to do what you're trying to do.' We'd had good players before me, but they all ended up right back in Lancaster.
