St. John’s knows NCAA Tournament hopes on line at Villanova

St. John's knows NCAA Tournament hopes on line at Villanova

Julian Champagnie succinctly described St. John’s situation well Saturday night.

“Next game we play Villanova on the road, which we have to win now,” the sophomore star said.

That’s what the ugly loss to DePaul at home did to the Johnnies’ now-fading NCAA Tournament hopes. Losing to the worst team in the Big East put them in an incredibly difficult position, facing a must-win game on the road against the premier team in the conference.

A win Tuesday (8 p.m.; TV: CBSSN; radio: WNYM 970 AM) in Philadelphia gets them back in the mix. Anything less, and St. John’s has to likely win the Big East Tournament or at least reach the title game. Pulling off the upset will not be easy. It is an 11-point underdog against the eighth-ranked Wildcats, who will be out for revenge after losing at St. John’s by 11 on Feb. 3.

“They’ve responded throughout the year, so I expect them to respond the right way [again],” coach Mike Anderson said. “It’s a great opportunity, it’s a great challenge. We’ll find out a bit more about our basketball team.”

For a few hours Monday afternoon, there was some doubt whether the game would even be played, according to sources. There was a positive test of a member of the St. John’s athletic department and contact tracing followed. Fortunately, everyone was cleared and made the trip.

The focus will need to be on the defensive end, after St. John’s (14-9, 8-8) was overwhelmed in the paint by DePaul and allowed the Blue Demons to shoot a blistering 63 percent from the field. During the Red Storm’s strong five-week performance before that loss, during which they won eight of 10 games, defense carried them.

In the victory over Villanova, St. John’s held the Wildcats to 32.3 percent shooting from the field and forced 17 turnovers. Star point guard Collin Gillespie committed a season-high six turnovers and scored a season-low four points. He was locked down by Big East Freshman of the Year front-runner Posh Alexander, who like many of his teammates, struggled immensely against DePaul.

“We have to come out with the right mindset,” senior guard Rasheem Dunn said. “We got away from our identity, which is defense, and DePaul attacked us. We can’t dwell on it. That game is over.

“I expect us to go out there and play with our identity, just being the total opposite of what we were on Saturday.”


Junior guard Greg Williams Jr., whose lower-back injury flared up against DePaul and limited him to 10 minutes, is expected to play against Villanova, according to Anderson. He has practiced fully the last two days.

Euro 2021: Denmark vs. Finland suspended after Christian Eriksen collapses on the field

Euro 2021: Denmark vs. Finland suspended after Christian Eriksen collapses on the field

UEFA suspended the Euro 2021 Group B match between Denmark and Finland after a medical emergency involving Denmark’s Christian Eriksen.

There was silence at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark just before halftime when star midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsed to the ground after taking a touch on a throw-in. Team medical staff raced to tend to the playmaker after his teammates motioned frantically for help. There was no contact with opposition players before he fell to the ground.

As the medics tended to Eriksen for more than 10 minutes, his Denmark teammates formed a circle around him to block cameras from showing the scenes. From the video available it appeared that the medical intervention involved the administering of chest compressions. An image credited to Getty Images shows an alert Eriksen as he is being stretchered off the field.

UEFA later confirmed that the player was transferred to a local hospital and has been stabilized.

Players on the field and fans in the stands looked distraught during the ordeal with fans attempting to rally in applause to support the player.

ESPN broadcaster Derek Rae was calling the match when the incident occurred:

Eriksen debuted for Denmark in March 2010 and has accumulated 108 appearances and 36 goals for his country. The playmaker made his name on the club level with Dutch giants Ajax and he later moved to English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur. After a difficult spell at the English club he was loaned to Italian club Inter Milan last year and he returned to his best form in helping Inter win the Italian Serie A championship.

YouTube vs. TikTok fight purse: How much will Austin McBroom, Bryce Hall earn in boxing exhibition?

YouTube vs. TikTok fight purse: How much will Austin McBroom, Bryce Hall earn in boxing exhibition?

A week after Floyd Mayweather bragged about being the best at “legalized bank robbing,” it seems some YouTube and TikTok stars are hoping to join in on the fun.

In an event named “Battle of the Platforms” some influencers from YouTube and TikTok are fighting each other in boxing matches. The headlining fight is between YouTube’s Austin McBroom and TikTok’s Bryce Hall, and both are set to make a decent amount of money from this bout.

In a press release for the fight, LiveXLive (which is hosting the event) says this will be a “one of a kind, unprecedented live PPV entertainment mega event.” In addition to the fights, there will also be musical acts from some well-known performers, so clearly there’s plenty of money to go around.

Below, we’ll focus mostly on the earnings between McBroom and Hall.

How much will Bryce Hall earn vs. Austin McBroom?

Bryce Hall revealed he’s set to earn $5 million from this fight the moment he steps in the ring. He shared a photo of what he claims is his contract with the $5 million figure in it, and shared that number again during an interview with No Jumper. Hall also revealed in that interview that he’ll earn 4% of pay-per-view sales in addition to the $5 million contract. And he gets a $1 million bonus if he ends up getting a knockout. McBroom also confirmed the $5 million and $1 million figures.

How much will Austin McBroom earn vs. Bryce Hall?

While the exact figures for McBroom aren’t public, he did share some information about how much he’ll make in this fight. He confirmed Hall’s $5 million salary for this fight in an interview with The Hollywood Fix. In that interview, he shared that he’s willing to make less than Hall in order to make this fight happen.

“I told the team, I said look, I’ll agree, for Bryce Hall to fight me, I’ll agree to make less money than him,” McBroom said.

He also said the $1 million bonus for Hall (if he gets a knockout) will come out of his own pocket.

While McBroom says he’s set to “make less” than Hall, the way he was talking made it seem like he wasn’t going to be making much less. It feels safe to assume McBroom will also earn millions from this event. In an interview with Keemstar, McBroom and Hall had an agreement to where Hall would also give McBroom $1 million in the result of a knockout.

YouTube vs. TikTok fight payouts

The fight payout for the rest of the fighters in this event have not been revealed yet, but a few of the fighters involved have talked about money. AnEsonGib, who reportedly made over $1 million from his fight vs. Jake Paul, earning him the nickname Seven-Figure Gibber, said in an interveiw with FanSided that money has been the driving influence for a lot of these internet boxing matches.

“And now other influencers, I fought when there was no money,” AnEsonGib said. “I had two fights, then fight for a check. Other influencers now, they see, they understand, they think it’s a cool experience. Don’t understand the trenches and the hard work. A lot of people said they were fighting for money. Cool, I got a nickname Seven-Figure-Gibber, but I’ve got a true passion for this.”

Also speaking to FanSided, Deji mentioned money as well.

“I would say it’s because there’s money to be made, because each, they have a following,” Deji said. “So obviously, Jake Paul having like, such a social following, and then turn habits into like a fight-following, and then just combining those two it’s just money to be made. That’s why. So ultimately, it’s just more eyes on the sport of boxing.”

Deji’s opponent Vinnie Hacker also had a humorous moment during a press conference for his fight where he said he’s only doing this fight because of money.

Austin McBroom net worth

The website Celebrity Net Worth has Austin McBroom at around a $2 million net worth, but other sites estimate his net worth is closer to $5 million. According to SocialBlade, McBroom’s popular YouTube page TheACEFamily earns around $68.9K to $1.1M per year.

Bryce Hall net worth

The website Celebrity Net Worth says Bryce Hall also has a net worth of $2 million. Although the TikTok star said in a tweet earlier this year that he has over $10 million.
