Jahaad Proctor made five 3-pointers and scored 22 points to lead High Point to a 75-55 victory over Longwood on Sunday.
Proctor was 5 of 8 from the arc with five assists for the Panthers (10-9, 5-3 Big South), who shot 53 percent and made half their 18 3-point tries in winning their third straight game. Brandonn Kamga added 16 points and Andre Fox 11.
The NFL is appealing the ruling by a federal judge in Texas that granted a preliminary injunction to keep Elliott’s suspension on hold as the case proceeds. If the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit grants the league’s request for an emergency stay of the injunction, perhaps as soon as next week, the injunction would be lifted and Elliott would have to serve his suspension while the underlying case plays out. Under that scenario, Elliott could begin serving his suspension as soon as the Cowboys’ third game of the season.
If the appeals court denies the league’s request for an emergency stay but grants a highly expedited briefing schedule for the NFL’s appeal of the injunction, it might be possible for Elliott’s suspension to take effect later this season if the league prevails on that appeal. Should that happen following Week 12, the suspension would carry into the postseason, an NFL source confirmed.
We know the position we’re in, Rhode Island coach Dan Hurley said. We know what our goals are. We’re just really locked in on that next game.
I ask for our guys to fight and defend for 40 minutes, Fordham coach Jeff Neubauer said. We certainly need to find a way to get over the hump.
Rhode Island’s key to success is its depth led by senior guard Jared Terrell, who had a season-high 24 points in the win over Dayton. Senior backcourt mate E.C. Mathews, who had 17 points and seven rebounds, moved into the top 10 of Rhode Island’s career scoring list with 1,686 points.
Another senior guard, Jarvis Garrett, had seven points, five assists and three rebounds in 20 minutes. Hurley calls Garrett the key to the team because of his acceptance of coming off the bench.
