ESPN 100 guard Courtney Ramey, one of the top unsigned seniors in the country, announced his commitment to Texas on Friday afternoon.
Ramey chose the Longhorns over Louisville, the school he decommitted from after Louisville’s name surfaced in the ongoing FBI investigation of NCAA men’s basketball announced in September. Missouri, South Carolina, SMU, Oklahoma State and others also were involved in the recruiting process over the past few weeks.
“Just try to make it tough on Giannis as a scorer,” Ojeleye said. “He’s a tough player and a tough matchup for a lot of guys. Just trying to make it as tough as possible. He made a lot of tough shots. … He’s a great player, and I just tried to stay in front and make him take tough shots — try to be physical.”
Antetokounmpo acknowledged the Celtics’ defense and the problems it caused for him throughout the night, but he remained steadfast in feeling that it was on him to make the right changes heading into Game 6.
“I’m not going to take anything away from any player,” Antetokounmpo said. “I could easily say it was on me. I didn’t feel like — it was not just Semi Ojeleye, it was everybody guarding me. But he did a great job. He played hard. He competed for his team, and hopefully he can do the same thing in Game 6.”
“Before asking my name he asked me if I was in a gang, then minutes later told me he thought I was a dealer (drugs),” Richardson wrote. “What a welcome to the east coast. Finished up with asking me how much car cost me.”
A spokesperson for the Virginia State Police, Corinne N. Geller, told USA Today that a formal complaint hasn’t been filed, but the department is reviewing the matter. Geller also confirmed that Richardson was stopped “because the vehicle did not have license plates displayed as required by Virginia law.”
“Mr. Richardson’s tweet was brought to our attention Tuesday afternoon,” Geller said. “While no formal complaint has been filed, the Department is reviewing the matter, to include the trooper’s in-car camera footage of the traffic stop, to determine if the traffic stop was handled in accordance with state police policy.”
Richardson’s tweets have since been deleted, but he tweeted once more saying, “It’s true, but tweeting about it wasn’t the right way to deal.”
The 26-year-old signed a five-year deal with the Redskins reportedly worth up to $40 million at the beginning of free agency last month. He spent the first four seasons of his career with the Seahawks where he was selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
