Hurricanes Upset By Ramblers

Miami’s season came to an end last Thursday against the Ramblers of Loyola Chicago. In a tightly contested matchup, Dante Ingram (Senior Guard) of Loyola was able to hit a clutch game winning three. Clayton Custer (Junior Guard) led the Ramblers in scoring with 14 points on 5/10 shooting (4/6 from three). Lonnie Walker led the Hurricanes with 12 points on 5/12 shooting in what could have been his last game in a Miami uniform. Although Bruce Brown Jr. did not play (foot injury), this was his last game as a Hurricane since he will be entering the 2018 NBA Draft.

Loyola-Chi came out the gates firing early as Dante Ingram made his first points of the game with a rhythm three. A couple plays later, Ingram gave the Ramblers a small lead on a driving layup. But, Newton would answer with an and one to tie the game. Next, Newton drove down the lane to find a driving Dewan Huell for an alley oop.

The teams played an evenly matched first half as the game was tied at 28.

At the start of the first half, there was more of the same. The Hurricanes had trouble extending their lead into double digits which allowed the Ramblers to stay in the game. When Miami had a seven point lead, Aundre Jackson (Senior Forward) scored on an up and under layup. The two teams continued to trade buckets for the rest of the half.

With about one minute left and the Hurricanes clinging to a 60-57 lead, Custer nailed one of his 4 threes. And like that, the Ramblers had tied the game up.

Ja’Quan Newton would attempt to close the game when he hit a rhythm two to give Miami a 2 point lead. But, the game was not over.

Loyola-Chi would make one of two free throws to make the score 62-61. Then, after getting fouled and sent to the free throw line, Lonnie Walker missed the front end of a one-and-one. With 9.3 seconds left, the Ramblers dribbled up the court and Custer found a wide open Ingram for the game winning three.

Since this game, Loyola-Chi has continued to upset its opponents and now will face Kansas St. in the Elite Eight.

With the loss of Bruce Brown Jr, Hurricanes fans are waiting to see whether or not Lonnie Walker will also declare.

Despite the disappointing ending, this was a good season. Hopefully next year the Hurricanes can make a deep tournament run.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
