The Ducks got a huge summer pickup on Thursday when 2020 five-star big man N’Faly Dante announced that he’s not only reclassifying to 2019, but also has chosen Oregon over Kentucky.

Dante was the No. 12 overall ranked player in the 2020 class and the No. 3 center. The 6’11” big man attended Sunrise Christian (Kansas) Academy and has had a big summer, most recently being named MVP of the 2019 Peach Jam Classic after posting 22 points and 18 rebounds in the final.

Dante should give the Ducks an immediate boost on the defensive end and on the boards, and he’ll be a scoring presence inside the paint. With a body that already looks ready for the rigors of the college level, he could make a fairly seamless transition even despite the reclassification.

White supremacist propaganda found posted throughout Kentucky town Stickers promoting a white supremacist group were founded throughout the center of a Kentucky town over the weekend.Police in the town of Fort Thomas, Kentucky, said on Tuesday they were in the process of having public works employees remove the stickers that were put up by the group Patriot Front, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.At least a dozen stickers promoting the group were found on lampposts throughout the center of town by a resident, who notified the police and began attempting to remove the stickers himself. "I was not expecting to see that," Bret Olson told the news outlet. "I tore it down.

Dante becomes the highest-ranked player of Oregon’s 2019 class and joins fellow five-star CJ Walker, four-star big man Chandler Lawson, three-star forward Lök Wur and juco guard Chris Duarte. The Ducks also added immediately eligible New Mexico guard Anthony Mathis and UNLV wing Shakur Juiston, while four-star center commit Isaac Johnson will serve a two-year church mission before joining the team.

While sophomore Francis Okoro is likely still the favorite to open the season as Oregon’s starting center, Dante should have plenty of opportunity down low after the departures of Kenny Wooten and Paul White. The Ducks showed off their lineup versatility last year during a late-season run that culminated in an unlikely trip to the Sweet 16, often starting four players who were 6’9” to surround 6’2” point guard Payton Pritchard.

Air Force veteran, 94, wins $6.5M in Oregon lottery after checking ticket one more time before tossing it A moment of hesitation turned out to be an extremely profitable one for a former Air Force pilot who took a second glance at an Oregon lottery ticket before tossing it only to find he won $6.5 million. © FoxNews.com Financial analyst Dan Geltrude explains how to avoid those statistics if you hit the jackpot. William Bowker regularly plays the lotto and when his granddaughter came to visit him recently, he had her check his tickets. “She thought it was a Mega Million ticket, and started circling matching numbers on the ticket,” Bowker said according to a press release from the Oregon Lottery. “But they were for the wrong game.

Pritchard is back for his senior year to once again lead the Oregon offense, and sophomore guard Will Richardson returns as well. With a plethora of new faces, the Ducks will hope to figure out how to gel and learn Dana Altman’s system quicker than they did in 2018–19, when they didn’t round into form until February. After seeing the damage Oregon did last March, when it won the Pac-12 tournament and then gave eventual champion Virginia all it could handle, it wouldn’t be wise to count Altman’s team out even if it does take time to come together again.
