The Bengals scored only four points in the first quarter and Lake Catholic used an 11-0 run to take a 25-14 halftime lead.

A 3-point shot by junior forward Sean Fitzgerald at the 4:02 mark gave the Cougars their largest lead of the night at 36-21.Benedictine coach Rob Stircula called timeout. He may not have known it at the time, but it turned out to be the best decision of the game.Following the timeout, Benedictine suddenly came to life, going on a 13-5 run to bring the Bengals to within seven at 41-34 as the third quarter ended.

Bobby Petrino to get $500,000 bonus for Louisville’s academic performance

first_imgThe University of Louisville football team’s academic performance again will result in Bobby Petrino having one of the largest bonus payouts for a public-school football coach.He will receive $500,000 because the school’s athletics compliance department has determined that the team’s new single-year NCAA Academic Progress Rate figure will be at least 935 or better, an athletics department spokesman told USA TODAY Sports on Friday.“We won’t have an official APR figure until May, but we have determined that it will meet the threshold to activate the bonus,” spokesman Kenny Klein said in an e-mail.The NCAA generally makes APR figures public in May, but schools are required to report their figures to the NCAA six weeks after the first day of fall-term classes. SALARIES: USA TODAY Sports databaseThe 935 APR threshold in Petrino’s contract is just above the minimum four-year average of 930 that the NCAA requires for teams to be eligible for postseason play. Last year, however, the Louisville football team’s single-year APR was 984 (out of a possible 1000) and its four-year average was 977, according to data published by the NCAA in May 2015. That put the Cardinals among the top 20 percent of all Division I football teams, according to the NCAA’s figures.Petrino’s qualification for the APR bonus will increase the value of the bonus he can get if the Cardinals end up playing in a bowl game by nearly $42,000. (They have a 3-4 record heading into Friday night’s game against Wake Forest.)If Louisville participates in a bowl game, Petrino receives a bonus equal to 1/12th of the sum of his $3 million basic annual pay and the APR bonus if he gets it. Without the APR payment, Petrino would have been set for a bowl bonus of $250,000.Follow the road to the 2015 College Football Playoff at The Football Four, our home to rate and debate the nation’s best. Based on his team’s achievements last season, Petrino was paid nearly $800,000 in bonuses — second among FBS public-school coaches to Missouri’s Gary Pinkel, who totaled $900,000, according to data compiled by USA TODAY Sports for football head coaches who are at the same school that employed them as the head coach last season.At least five other FBS head coaches also are set for at least $100,000 in bonuses this season, with more possible: Penn State’s James Franklin ($200,000), Memphis’ Justin Fuente ($170,000) Utah’s Kyle Whittingham (nearly $130,000), Bowling Green’s Dino Babers ($125,000) and LSU’s Les Miles ($100,000). Fuente can add to his total with a win by the Tigers on Saturday; Babers can do the same with a win by the Falcons on Wednesday.Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart is set for a bonus of at least $120,000. He gets an amount equal to 8% of his $1.5 million base salary if the Crimson Tide plays in any bowl game, but the amount will be greater if the team plays in the Southeastern Conference title game or one of the SEC’s higher-paying bowl games.last_img read more

first_imgAdvertisement Image Courtesy: India TodayAdvertisementChennai Super Kings face off vs Mumbai Indians for the 4th time in the season, this time in an IPL final. Having lost on the previous 3 occasions, CSK will feel this will be the right time to inflict revenge on MI.Image Courtesy: India TodayAfter almost 50 days of entertainment, IPL final is finally here. Mumbi Indians will take on Chennai Super Kings to find out which side will be the first to win 4 IPL titles. In terms of the tournament on the whole, this season has been the most closely fought in terms of points.When the difference between the first and last placed teams is taken, this season has recorded the lowest total. Also it is to be noted that only 12 points was enough for SRH to scrape through to the next round.But when talking about today’s finals, it can be said that a cracker of a game is on the cards. MI will have had the advantage of having some extra days of rest after going to the finals directly from Qualifier 1.Meanwhile for CSK it has not been easy. They always tend to do things in the difficult way and had to take the longer route towards the final. Them beating DC for the third time this season meant that they qualified for their 8th final in the 10 years.Despite taking a longer route, CSK will be delighted of the fact that both Watson and Faf du Plessis have returned to form with each scoring a 50 vs DC. For once the side did not need to depend on the likes of Dhoni and finished the game by themselves.MI on the other hand have ticked almost all boxes ahead of the final. They will look to carry their existing from ahead to the final and win the all important title.Team News:Mumbai Indians opted to play Jayant Yadav ahead of McClenaghan in the Qualifier 1 at Chepauk. With the pitch then aiding spin, Jayant Yadav bowled brilliantly well picking up the prized scalp of Raina. But now with the Hyderabad wicket expected to assist pace as it as done so far this season, Rohit might look to bring back the New Zealander.CSK on the other hand had the option to risk playing the extra pacer vs a Rabada less DC. But it didn’t pay off as Thakur was taken off after bowling just 1 over. His services could be replaced by Murali Vijay.Expected XI:MI: Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Rahul Chahar, Jayant Yadav/Mitchell McClenaghan, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah.CSK: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Shardul Thakur/Murali Vijay, Deepak Chahar.
