No. 4 Michigan State thumps No. 9 North Carolina 63-45

Published

on

 — Tom Izzo finally got the better of Roy Williams with a record performance Michigan State would like to replicate — and North Carolina would rather soon forget.

Sometimes playing ugly still matters.

“What I think this does is reassure our guys,” Izzo said. “The way basketball is right now, it’s all the pretty boys stuff but at the end of the day most of the good teams are still winning by doing the dirty work.”

Joshua Langford made five 3-pointers and scored 23 points and No. 4 Michigan State used a record-setting defensive performance to topple No. 9 North Carolina 63-45 on Sunday night to win the “Victory Bracket” of the PK80 Invitational.

Izzo bested North Carolina for the first time with Williams in charge in Chapel Hill by holding the Tar Heels to the worst shooting performance in school history. The Tar Heels shot 24.6 percent. They were 1 of 18 on 3s, also the worst effort in the school’s history. The 45 points tied for the second-fewest scored by the Tar Heels with Williams as head coach.

In the three games in Portland, the Spartans allowed 57, 51 and 45 points. They imposed themselves on the defensive end, bullying the opposition. Shots were contested. Lanes were clogged. The Spartans made nothing easy and it was capped by a record performance against the Tar Heels that left Williams apologetic.

“So far this year the freshmen haven’t necessarily played like freshmen. Today the freshmen played lime freshmen, and the sophomores, juniors and seniors played like freshmen. And the coach coached like he’d never seen a game of basketball in his life,” Williams said. “Other than that, it’s not a bad night.”

Langford was key in the first half as the Spartans (5-1) built a 13-point halftime lead despite Miles Bridges and Jaren Jackson Jr. being limited with foul trouble. Langford had 14 points in the first half as Michigan State used an 11-4 run to take control and were never threatened by the Tar Heels.

Bridges finished with 11 points and the Spartans felt they got a bit of redemption after stumbling in their first matchup with a top 10 team losing 88-81 to Duke on Nov. 14.

“This is a great team win because we won the game on the defensive end,” Langford said.

Theo Pinson led North Carolina (5-1) with 16 points, but Joel Berry II and Luke Maye both had awful nights. The Tar Heels trimmed the 21-point deficit to 12 with 4:30 left, but Bridges stemmed the run with a driving layup.

Maye had been brilliant to start the season for North Carolina but was 3 of 13 shooting, missed five free throws and finished with just eight points. Michigan State challenged seemingly every shot in the paint and the Tar Heels had no outside shooting.

Berry was 2 of 11 overall. The Tar Heels had more turnovers (16) than field goals (15).

“They punched us right in the mouth and we just let them punch us and didn’t fight back at all,” Berry said. “They just took us out of what we wanted to do.”

North Carolina’s night was so awful even the easiest plays became difficult. Kenny Williams made a fine interception of a pass in the first half but his breakaway layup caromed off the front rim and Winston drilled a 3-pointer at the other end to push Michigan State’s lead to 33-17. Late in the second half, Maye was wide open on a drive down the lane, yet his layup didn’t even touch the rim, his 10th miss of the game.

North Carolina shot 7 of 30 (23 percent) in the first half and Berry’s desperation flip at the halftime buzzer was the Tar Heels’ only 3-pointer of the night.

THE TAKEAWAY

North Carolina: The Tar Heels continued their streak of making at least one 3-pointer to 713 straight games dating to 1997. Barely. Berry’s 30-footer to end the first half was the only make and the Tar Heels performance was worse than a 1 for 16 shooting night on 3s against Duke.

Michigan State: Bridges appeared mostly recovered from the sprained left ankle that had limited the preseason All-American in the first two games of the tournament. Bridges played 26 minutes and had five rebounds.

WAS IT THE HOODIE?

Izzo had an unexpected look for the game, wearing a lightweight Michigan State hoodie rather than the collared golf shirt that most other coaches wore for the tournament.

“I’ll probably go back to dressing up a little more. I kind of like this outfit. Things don’t get in your way when you’re trying to explain to an official how bad a call he made,” Izzo joked.

STREAK SNAPPED

The Tar Heels had won 11 straight games dating to last season when they lost to Duke in the ACC tournament.

Owner of Elite Tattoo Gallery in Jacksonville is accused of scamming tattoo artists across country

Published

on

The owner of Elite Tattoo Gallery in Jacksonville, North Carolina will soon have to answer to a lawsuit after she allegedly scammed dozens of tattoo artists out of thousands of dollars after she canceled an event.

In a Facebook post by Bryan Thomas, a victim of the alleged scam said Wednesday that in March of this year he signed up for an educational tattoo seminar called “The Impact Project.” Thomas said a ticket to the event cost him $1,600. He received an email earlier Wednesday about the event canceling, and there will be no refunds.

The event is an Indianapolis event organized by local Jacksonville Elite Tattoo Gallery owner, Melissa Ferranto.

According to the Impact Project website, the four-day conference was supposed to be held at the downtown Hilton in September, so artists could collaborate and learn how to best run a successful business.

Impact Project flyer.

Tattoo artists say they received an email Wednesday that “the event and all future events are canceled indefinitely due to unforeseen tragic matters and extreme circumstances. The funds for the ticket sales have been used for the forward progression of the conference” and says they cannot refund any tickets.

READ EMAIL BELOW: 

Email artists received.

Many of the artists say they have contacted their financial institution to dispute the charges, but some are way out of the time frame they can file a dispute.

Fox59 in Indianapolis spoke with a local tattoo artist who said “everything looked real and legit,” but that all changed the night he received an email about the event canceling and that there would be no refunds. (click HERE for their story)

News In Onslow reached out to Melissa Ferranto and she released this statement to us BELOW:

Dear Colleagues, I want to start out by apologizing for the delay in getting this email sent. Please don’t mistake the delay in communication for a lack of concern for what has transpired. We care deeply about each person that has been negatively affected by cancellation of the event.

My intention is to be completely forthright about why the event was cancelled and all other relevant matters. However, instead of providing a piecemeal explanation at this time, I have been advised to wait until I can provide a thorough statement, including an accounting of funds and a final resolution.

Please rest assured that we are working diligently on a remedy. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I send out my sincerest apologies to everyone involved.

Sincerely,

Melissa Ferranto Representative of the Impact Project, Elite Tattoo Gallery and Body Piercing Studio, LLC

Ferranto told News In Onslow that she is represented by an attorney.

Man who killed Sheldon Prawl in 2013 will spend nearly 50 years in prison

Published

on

“Sheldon tried to kill my sister,” Carleton Davis said to Prawl’s mother Beverly Daley as she read her impact statement to the court. 

“I have not only lost one child but two children, and if it was up to me, Davis and Cheri would receive the death penalty,” Daley said.

It took two weeks of trial and nearly 6 hours total of deliberation for a jury to convict 38-year-old Carleton Davis in the death of Sheldon Prawl. 

Today, Carleton Davis, 38, was found guilty of second-degree murder and felony concealment of death. Judge Imelda Pate told Davis that he would spend nearly 50 years in prison. He was sentenced to serve a total of 38-to-48 years in prison. Davis killed Sheldon Prawl in 2013 and put his remains in two-cement filled foot lockers outside a house in Detroit, Michigan. Police later found Prawl’s body after a neighbor reported a bad odor coming from the backyard. 

Davis sister Cheri Davis, has also been charged in the case. She was the girlfriend of Prawl. She has been charged with felony destruction of bodily remains to conceal a death, felony conspiracy, felony accessory after the fact, and felony common law obstruction of justice and she is out of jail on bond. 

Here’s what Carleton Davis had to say to the court before his sentencing BELOW:

Man accused of killing Sheldon Prawl in 2013 won’t testify, evidence is circumstantial

Published

on

A man accused of killing Sheldon Prawl in 2013 will not testify in his murder trial.

Carleton Davis, 38, of Georgia, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Sheldon Prawl.

In court, Assistant District Attorney Mike Maultsby said that Prawl was last seen on Halloween in 2013 and, shortly thereafter, 35-year-old Cheri Lee Davis, Carleton Davis‘ sister, reported him missing. Prawl’s body was found in Detroit, Michigan dismembered in two separate containers filled with cement on May 30, 2014.

In the States closing argument Wednesday afternoon, they spoke about the relationship between Davis and Richard Jackson, who lived next door to the home Prawl’s body was found. Jackson and Davis were pulled over in Brunswick County in 2014 on unrelated drug and gun charges.

“The case is a circumstantial evidence case. The circumstances, in this case, proves without a reasonable doubt that the defendant killed Sheldon Pawl,” Maultsby told the jury. 

Maultsby talked about how Prawl and his mother Beverly Daley spoke every other day and on October 31, 2013, she received a text message from Prawl’s phone saying “Travel, talk to you soon.” Davis said in her testimony that she gave it a few days before she contacted Cherri Davis, Prawl’s girlfriend on November 2, begging her to make a report to the police about her son missing. 

In the state’s closing argument, Maultsby told the jury that “Carleton Davis had a motive to end the life of Sheldon Prawl because he did not like what he did to his sister.” It took the state 58 minutes to argue their closing to the jury and the defense will argue their closing at 1:30 PM Wednesday afternoon.
