Council delays results

first_imgStudents submitted their ballots online Wednesday for student body president and vice president, but the results of this year’s race will not be made public until 9 a.m. today due to allegations of campaign rule violations, Judicial Council vice president of elections Katie Hennessy said. In the past, election results have been released shortly after student voting closes at 8 p.m. “We had decided a few days ago that we were going to wait until [Thursday] morning,” Hennessy said. “The way the Constitution reads is that people have until 11:59 p.m. [on election day] to submit allegations [of campaign misconduct].” The Judicial Council, which is responsible for overseeing the fair processing of student government elections, did receive two allegations of rule violations regarding two different tickets Wednesday, Hennessy said. Per the Constitution, the specifics of allegations remain confidential to prevent swaying voters. Hennessy said the allegations jeopardized the Council’s ability to release results promptly. “Whenever allegations arise we have to hold them until they’re done, appeals and everything,” she said. “Neither ticket was found in violation, so the announcement will still be made at 9 a.m.” While neither ticket was found to have broken campaign rules, Hennessy said she found enough merit in the allegations to bring the cases to the Council’s election committee. “When we receive an allegation, it comes to me and I read through it and determine if it has merit and whether they should go to the election committee,” she said. “I decided they both had reason enough to be heard, so the election committee met this evening and heard the allegations.” The Council contacted both tickets and invited the candidates to attend the hearing. “The tickets always have the opportunity to come in and give their side of the story, and the election committee can ask them questions if anything is unclear,” she said. Results will be released outside the Notre Dame Room of the LaFortune Student Center today at 9 a.m. Check The Observer online today at www.ndsmcobserver.com for election results. If no ticket earned a majority in Wednesday’s election, the two tickets with the highest number of votes will compete in a run-off election. The candidates would participate in a debate Sunday night, with the final election to take place Monday.last_img read more

Whicker: Montrezl Harrell, Clippers work hard on holidays, too

first_img Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum The Clippers won 111-106 in a game featuring 16 lead changes and multiple mood swings.It was the Lakers’ fourth consecutive loss, but it seemed unlikely when they led by 10 at halftime and by 15 after Kawhi Leonard’s turnover became Avery Bradley’s layup in the third quarter.That was the Clippers’ 12th turnover. They would make only four in the final 21:26.The Lakers had 63 points in the first half. They had 43 in the second and shot 4 for 23 from 3-point land.The Lakers batted away eight Clippers shots in the first half, including an epic chase-down by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. They had two in the second. So, if you must draw conclusions from the Clippers’ 33rd game and the Lakers’ 31st, you can say with tentative confidence that the Lakers don’t have anybody like Harrell and nobody has anybody like Leonard.You can also surmise that both teams have lots of bandwidth to fill since the Lakers are still relative strangers and the Clippers haven’t had their full cast until now.“We’re nowhere near what we’re going to be, I really believe that,” Rivers said. “It might not happen until the playoffs for all I know. But we know we’re not there yet.”“It’s a great stepping stone,” Harrell said. “We had to come on in the second half with a great mindset. We know we can’t put ourselves in the position we did in the first half. We just had to be the hard-playing team. If they still beat us with that, then we just have to live with it.”The Lakers and Clippers meet again Jan. 28 and March 8. For fans of what the NBA ought to be, there are few other reasons to live.

We just weren’t playing hard enough. We were doing more complaining than playing.”So Harrell flexed his heavy hands and scored 12 of his 18 in the second half, freeing the rim from the Lakers’ protection. (Such a thing might have been more difficult with more minutes from JaVale McGee).Leonard, doing his best-player-in-the-world impression, patiently chopped away with 35 points.The Clippers overcame a combined 8-for-26 effort from Paul George and Lou Williams, who scored 23 when they average nearly 44.And while the Lakers’ offense devolved into three onlookers waiting for James and Anthony Davis to invent something, the Clippers played and, particularly, defended as one.“It’s relentless,” Harrell said. “We put ourselves in position to get their rebounds, and then we got those 50-50 balls in the second half. We just have the luxury to switch a lot of things defensively, so if one thing isn’t working, we can go to something else.”The Lakers went where everyone knows they’ll go on the final possession after the Clippers had gone ahead by three.“They must have set four screens for him (James),” Harrell said. “We just kept switching. Pat got right up in him. You’ve seen these plays before. You give him space and he just sidesteps and raises up and shoots a 3. Pat wouldn’t let him put the ball on the ground. He took his air space. He’s not All-Defense for no reason.”Beverley reached up and jarred the ball loose, and a replay showed James was the final man to touch it before it went out of bounds.But Clippers coach Doc Rivers also liked Beverley’s offensive rebound of George’s missed 3-point shot with 5:42 left. That allowed George a second chance, and he hit a 20-footer to bring the Clippers to within three.Harrell got three offensive boards in the final 4½ minutes. He converted one of them for a 103-103 tie, and then the Clippers pointed Leonard toward the foul line, where he cashed six of eight.After James found Davis for a dunk with 4:58 left, the Lakers stayed outside the paint and got only one more field goal.Related Articles LOS ANGELES — Did you get your money’s worth? Considering the money it took, that’s hard to say.Was it a couple of hours well-spent on a strato-cumulus Christmas evening? Unquestionably.The Lakers and Clippers kept enforcing their belief this was just another NBA game, but we all know that’s not true, because we’ve seen other NBA games. They do not look or feel or sound like this. Nor are they priced like this. StubHub’s cheapest ticket was $450 late Wednesday afternoon.Patrick Beverley didn’t believe it either, screaming at friendly and hostile faces in the crowd after he dogged LeBron James into a sideline turnover with fewer than four seconds left.
