Team Southland Set for 3X3U National Championship

first_imgEach team roster will be comprised of four eligible seniors from the same Division I conference. Teams will be organized into eight pools of four and each team will be guaranteed three pool play games, earning $1,000 for every victory on Friday and Saturday. The top two teams in each pool will move on to Sunday’s knockout stage, where the stakes skyrocket. Only the teams competing in the tournament final will earn additional prize money, with the champions winning $100,000. An NABC All-Region 23 First Team Choice as well as an All-Southland Conference Second Team selection, Bogues ended his Lumberjack career earlier this month as one of the most prolific scorers in program history. Bogues became the first Lumberjack in twenty years to lead the Southland Conference in scoring, averaging a league-best 17.9 points per game. The Killeen, Texas, product scored at least 10 points in 31 consecutive outings dating back to the 2017-18 season which stands as the longest stretch of double-digit scoring outings in SFA’s NCAA-era history. His selection to the NABC All-District 23 First Team makes him only the second SFA player to ever earn multiple All-District awards from the NABC.  Thank you @3X3UHoops for the opportunity to represent my family, @SFA_MBB and @SouthlandSports.

Delaney also was one of the most accurate shooters in the league, hitting 48.1 percent of his shots from the field and 43.6 percent form 3-point range, canning 72 triples on the year and also hitting 72-for-88 (81.8 percent) from the foul line. All games of the Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship will be carried live on Twitter or ESPN2. Pool play will begin at 2 p.m. CT on April 5, with 24 games streamed live exclusively on Twitter. Pool play will continue on April 6 at 8:30 a.m. CT with 24 more games streamed live exclusively on Twitter. Round of 16 and quarterfinal games will be streamed live exclusively on Twitter at 9:30 a.m. CT on April 7, with semifinal, consolation and championship games televised live on ESPN2 later that day at 2 p.m. CT. Returning to call all the action throughout the tournament will be the voice of FIBA 3×3 basketball, Kyle Montgomery, with Robbie Hummel of ESPN and Tate Frazier and Mark Titus of The Ringer’s One Shining Podcast providing color commentary and sideline coverage. Blessed an Highly Favored!Im ready to rock out and hold it down for the Southland Conference @3X3UHoops , Invitation Accepted ??? pic.twitter.com/EoalKaq9pK— Cameron DeLaney ? † (@LookAtNumber2) March 27, 2019Lewis won the Southland Tournament Most Outstanding Player, plus Southland Men’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Year. He is coming off an all-conference second team selection, finishing top-10 in the league in steals (53), steals per game (1.6), field goal percentage (.462), free throw percentage (.740) and rebounds (203). He was also 13th in scoring at 13.7 points per game and is just the fourth in ACU program history to record at least 1,500 career points and 800 career rebounds. He is ACU’s all-time Division I leader in both points (1,580) and rebounds (825).The tournament is comprised of all-star teams of seniors, who have exhausted their collegiate eligibility, representing all 32 Division I conferences. The teams will compete for a $150,000 prize pool, with the champions taking home $100,000, double the prize money from a year ago. Additionally, the winners will earn the right to compete in the 2019 USA Basketball 3×3 Open National Championship later this spring. “The attention from the inaugural Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship last year has really elevated the anticipation for this year’s event at Mall of America,” said Drew Russell, executive vice president at Intersport, the Chicago-based agency which operates the event. “We are incredibly excited about the field of players that will be competing in the event and believe the talent that will be on display will create an unforgettable atmosphere for everyone involved. Additionally, we’re confident these players are going to enjoy a one of a kind experience that will help position them for the next steps in their basketball careers.” Bragging rights for the winners won’t end in Minnesota; the 2019 champion will earn the right to represent the Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship at the USA Basketball 3×3 Open National Championship later this spring. There, athletes will have the opportunity to be selected to represent the United States in the 2019 FIBA 3×3 World Cup, held June 18-23 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Participating athletes will also be considered for the USA Basketball 3×3 athlete pool, which may lead to future opportunities in other FIBA 3×3 competitions. Of note, the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo will feature 3×3 basketball as a medal sport for the first time. BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – The four-man team representing the Southland Conference is set for the 2019 Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship basketball tournament, April 5-7 at Mall of America. The setting for the second annual Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship will be unlike anything the 128 players have seen when they take to the half-court inside Mall of America, the most popular tourist destination in Minnesota with more than 40 million visitors each year. The Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship will be staged in the Rotunda at the Mall, which hosted the first WCW Monday Nitro in September 1995, and will be just the second live sporting event to be broadcast in the Mall’s history. Admission to the Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship is free and fans are encouraged to be part of the atmosphere during regular Mall of America operating hours (10 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. CT on April 5-6, 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. CT on April 7). The Southland squad features Southeastern Louisiana’s Moses Greenwood, Stephen F. Austin’s Shannon Bogues, Sam Houston State’s Cameron DeLaney, and Abilene Christian’s Jaren Lewis.Greenwood led Southeastern in scoring (17.2 ppg) and rebounding (7.5 rpg) while being named first team All-Southland Conference. The senior led the conference in field goals made (223), was third in scoring and fifth in rebounding. The Velma Jackson grad finished his SLU career second all-time in program history in games played (131) and field goals made (598), third in blocked shots (104), fourth in scoring (1,513) and fifth in rebounding (765).last_img read more

Carnegie Mellon researchers develop semiliquid lithium metal anode to pair with solid

first_imgResearchers from Carnegie Mellon University have developed a semi-liquid lithium metal-based anode that could lead to higher capacity and better safety than typical lithium metal-based batteries that use lithium foil as anodes. The research team published their findings in the June 2019 issue of Joule.“Incorporating a mewtallic lithium anode intolithium-ion batteries has the theoretical potential to create a battery withmuch more capacity than a battery with a graphite anode,” said KrzysztofMatyjaszewski, Professor of Natural Sciences at Carnegie Mellon. “But, themost important thing we need to do is make sure that the battery we create issafe.”After a lithium-based battery has been charged anddischarged repeatedly, strands of lithium called dendrites can grow on thesurface of the electrode. The dendrites can pierce through the membrane thatseparates the two electrodes. This allows contact between the anode andcathode, which can cause the battery to short circuit and, in the worst case,catch fire.One proposed solution to the volatile liquid electrolytesused in current batteries is to replace them with solid ceramic electrolytes.These electrolytes are highly conductive, non-combustible and strong enough toresist dendrites. However, researchers have found that the contact between theceramic electrolyte and a solid lithium anode is insufficient for storing andsupplying the amount of power needed for most electronics.Carnegie Mellon doctoral students Sipei Li and Han Wang wereable to surmount this shortcoming by creating a new class of material that canbe used as a semi-liquid metal anode.Working with Matyjaszewski and engineering professor JayWhitacre, Li and Wang created a dual-conductive polymer/carbon composite matrixthat has lithium microparticles evenly distributed throughout. The matrixremains flowable at room temperatures, which allows it to create a sufficientlevel of contact with the solid electrolyte. By combining the semi-liquid metalanode with a garnet-basedsolid ceramic electrolyte, they were able to cycle the cell at 10 timeshigher current density than cells with a solid electrolyte and a traditionallithium foil anode. This cell also had a much longer cycle-life thantraditional cells.The researchers believe that their method could have farreaching impacts. It could be used to create high capacity batteries for EVsand flexible batteries for wearable devices. They also believe that theirmethods could be extended beyond lithium to other rechargeable battery systems,including sodium metal batteries and potassium metal batteries.“This new processing route leads to a lithium metal-based battery anode that is flowable and has very appealing safety and performance compared to ordinary lithium metal,” said Whitacre. “Implementing new material like this could lead to step change in lithium-based rechargeable batteries, and we are working hard to see how this works in a range of battery architectures.”Source: Carnegie Mellon University Source: Electric Vehicles Magazine Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on June 19, 2019Categories Electric Vehicle Newslast_img read more
