The Red Bluff Bass Anglers fished Trinity Lake on Sunday, Sept. 24 and Kevin McLachlan had a big day. The bite was slow for everyone except for McLachlan, whose winning weight of 21.42 lbs gave him his third victory in the past three tournaments. McLachlan caught two largemouth bass of more than 5 lbs for the biggest and second biggest fish, and a 3.24 lbs smallmouth for the biggest smallmouth of the tournament. Frank Johnston finished second with 15.08 lbs, and Jeremy Johnson took third …

Junior center Amir Williams (23) attempts a lay up during an exhibition game against Walsh Nov. 3 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 93-63.Credit: Kelly Roderick / For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s basketball season tips off Saturday against Morgan State. Here’s a look at five things The Lantern’s sports editors believe will loom largely this winter as the Buckeyes look to advance deep into the NCAA Tournament for the third year in a row.1. Does Aaron Craft continue to develop on offense?Since coming to campus in 2010, senior guard Aaron Craft has been known as a defensive force on the basketball court. In his second season with the Buckeyes in 2011-12, Craft earned Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year honors for his ability as an on-ball defender. But the difference between Craft and some of the nation’s best point guards is his inability to be a leading threat in scoring. Although Craft did average a career-high 10 points per game last season, he only averages 8.6 per contest over his career. That number that will need to increase if Ohio State hopes to achieve the lofty heights it has reached each of the last two seasons. Craft spent the offseason working on his jump shot after never shooting higher than .500 in a single season. The defensive presence will be there, but OSU needs to Craft to be a more prolific scorer to continue the program’s recent success.2. Does LaQuinton Ross step up as a leader?Junior forward LaQuinton Ross is talented — there is no denying that. Just look at what he did during OSU’s NCAA Tournament run last season. Ross averaged 15 points a game in the tournament, including hitting a game-winning 3-pointer in the Sweet Sixteen against Arizona. But now Ross will be a starter for the Buckeyes for the first time in his career, and most fans expect him to step up in a big way. Although his career scoring average is only 7.1 points per game, the flashes of brilliance last year show the dynamic that Ross could bring to the team as a big man who can hit 3-pointers. In 2012-13, Ross finished second on the team behind junior forward Sam Thompson in 3-point percentage at .389. If Ross can keep up his upward trend, expect a big season from the Jackson, Miss., native.3. How long is Thad Matta willing to wait on Amir Williams?Although he stepped in valiantly when Jared Sullinger was in foul trouble two years ago in OSU’s 77-70 Elite Eight victory over Syracuse, the junior center has not yet blossomed into his full potential. At times last year, Williams seemed finally ready to take the next step and be the dominant force down low OSU so desperately needed. But at other times, he would commit silly fouls, forcing Matta to go with a smaller lineup. Williams said at OSU Media Day Oct. 10 he has bulked up in the offseason in preparation to take more hits in the paint. But if he is unable to show he can rebound and defend consistently without fouling, don’t expect Matta to wait on him too long. Junior center Trey McDonald could see more playing time, or we could see more of the smaller lineup that the team used last year.4. Are the Buckeyes ready for another brutal Big Ten season?When it comes to college basketball, the Big Ten is the best. Although perennial powers Kentucky, Kansas and Louisville are always tough, their respective conferences do not hold the same weight as OSU’s. With the loss of Deshaun Thomas leaving scoring in question, the Buckeyes will need to defend like they always do in order to compete. OSU was 27th in scoring defense last season in the country, only giving up 59.4 points per contest. In a loaded conference, team defense like that again will be key. Any injury to a starter, particularly if it is a leader like Craft or Lenzelle Smith, Jr., could really test the depth of the team as it slugs through the Big Ten part of its schedule starting New Year’s Eve.5. Lenzelle Smith Jr.Smith has been a staple to the Buckeye starting five for two seasons already, and is nothing short of a solid player. He rebounds well for a guy who is only 6 feet 4 inches tall and is always willing to defend bigger guys in order to shut them down for OSU’s benefit. However, Smith seems hesitant to shoot the ball despite his 37.4 shooting record from beyond the arc. It is no secret the team as a whole needs to score more because of the void left by Thomas, but Smith and Craft need to be the guys who lead the charge.
There have been a lot of rumours going around for Lazio’s now infamous duo Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Ciro Immobile’s transfer to a Premier League side.However, it seems their sporting director Igli Tare is not so interested in selling them, or at least this is what it looks like, judging by his reaction.Lazio have been trying to catch up and secure a Champions League spot for the next season. The manager Simone Inzaghi has been the main reason the team has been thriving and not just the team as a whole, but players individually as well.Ciro Immobile relieved to end Italy goal-drought Andrew Smyth – September 9, 2019 Striker Ciro Immobile was a relieved man after finally ending his two-year Italy goal-drought during Sunday’s 2-1 win over Finland.Milinkovic-Savic joined Lazio in 2015 and has been able to blossom into one of Europe’s most perspective youngsters right now. He has scored 13 goals and provided 6 assists. Also, the fact that he is 1.91m tall is not to be forgotten either.Immobile, who has spent time in Torino, Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla, has been able to score the amazing 41 goals in 46 games – following Salah pretty closely.“€130 million offer for Milinkovic and Immobile? I do not read the newspapers and I do not listen to the radio, because we are concentrated only on the field,” was Igli Tare’s reaction when asked for the duo, according to HITC.
After the fiasco against Atletico Madrid during last week’s Third Division match, Real Madrid has come up with a new plan to protect Vinicius Junior.Last week’s match between Real Madrid Castilla and Atletico Madrid B, was a clear red flag in regards to Brazilian winger Vinicius Junior. The Flamengo product needed to make a great impression on his second match with the academy because he failed to score any goals during the first match, pressure started mounting on him and this was the game in which he needed to make an appearance. The reaction to all the criticism from Vinny was quick, he gave an incredible performance in which he scored two amazing goals and led Real Madrid Castilla to a draw against the young Colchoneros. But there was also a very negative note about his match, it was clear that Vinicius awakened a lot of envy on all of his rivals and they Atletico players dedicated the whole match to provocations against the player and rough tackles. This is something that will become more repetitive on the Third Division for the Brazilian, which is something that manager Julen Lopetegui quickly realized after watching last week’s game.O atirador! Bob lee Swagger ?? pic.twitter.com/iKQ6h9bg6e— Vinicius Jr (@vini11Oficial) September 2, 2018This Wednesday there was an emergency meeting between the boss and Real Madrid Castilla’s coach, Santiago Solari. They spoke about the schedule of games in which Vinicius will feature for the academy, they reached an agreement in which the winger won’t travel to any game away from the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium in Valdebebas for his own protection. Solari completely understood this because Vinicius is a player who is well above the Third Division level, it is only a matter of time before Lopetegui takes him to the major squad on a full-time basis and the Argentine Castilla coach knows that having him in a few games for his squad is already a great luxury that will help his team win more matches. The Real Madrid staff quickly saw the danger that Vinicius would go through if he played in other Third Division stadiums because it’s not the same playing against other academies than against professional clubs that want to obtain promotion.Brinque com ela ⚽️ … pic.twitter.com/cDiaQnILoc— Vinicius Jr (@vini11Oficial) September 5, 2018Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.Vinicius as part of the Champions League squad.The Brazilian winger actually took the whole biting attempt from the Atletico Madrid player very lightly, he even accepted an apology after the game and both players hugged it out. The Flamengo product is cut from the same cloth as Neymar, he knows that fouls are something that will accompany him for the rest of his career because of the style of football he loves playing. These types of players usually get very obsessed with new flicks and tricks during practice that they can later produce in an official match, this creativity is always rewarded and that’s why manager Julen Lopetegui has already included Vinicius Junior amongst the players who form the roster for this year’s Champions League. This will obviously be the player’s first opportunity to compete in such a prestigious tournament, this is the stage for which players like him were made and he has been training his ass off for years in order to get an opportunity like this one.?? ¡El equipo trabaja en #RMCity sin los jugadores convocados por sus selecciones! | #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/B5k4acO8w7— Real Madrid C.F. (@realmadrid) September 3, 2018During the international break, Vinicius Junior is already under Julen Lopetegui’s command and he will keep working hard this next two weeks with the hope of soon getting that first call-up for any La Liga match that will come after the national team matches this weekend. Protecting this €45 million player has suddenly become a top priority for Real Madrid, Lopetegui had his doubts about the kid but this last match against Atletico cleared all of them. There is no question that Vinicius will get his chance to shine this season, it’s up to him to cease the opportunity before management decides to send him on a loan to another club from Madrid where he can grow even more as a player. Sending him to another La Liga club is not actually a bad idea, this is something that is also being discussed for Vinicius’ most immediate future but a decision hasn’t been made yet on this subject. We’ll have to wait and see what happens this season.?¡IMAGEN EXCLUSIVA!? Vinicius y Tachi SE ABRAZARON tras el DERBI entre Real Madrid Castilla y Atleti B.
