2 San Francisco officers charged with destroying evidence
SAN FRANCISCO — (AP) — Two San Francisco police officers and a retired officer working part-time at the department have been charged in two separate cases with destroying evidence, stealing a machine gun and other charges, authorities announced Tuesday. But instead of collecting the items as evidence, Lyons and Sien shredded the credit cards and IDs and Lyons flushed the alleged drugs down a hotel toilet, the San Francisco District Attorney's Office said in a statement. Both officers, who turned themselves in to authorities Tuesday, have been charged with destroying evidence. “San Francisco residents trust the police to conduct the investigative work so my office can bring cases that keep the city safe,” District Attorney Chesa Boudin said. “We encourage everyone to remember that these individuals are presumed innocent until proven otherwise beyond a reasonable doubt,” Tracy McCray, acting president of the San Francisco Police Officers Association said in a statement.wftv.com
UNC gets best of Duke in epic 3rd meeting at Final Four
NCAA Duke North Carolina Basketball North Carolina guard Caleb Love (2) shoots against Duke center Mark Williams (15) during the second half of a college basketball game in the semifinal round of the Men's Final Four NCAA tournament, Saturday, April 2, 2022, in New Orleans. North Carolina outlasted Duke 81-77 in Saturday night’s Final Four after shooting 50% and making 7 of 13 3-pointers after halftime in an iron-willed performance, one that ultimately ended the Hall of Fame career of retiring Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. When it was over, the Superdome — filled with tense Tar Heels and Blue Devils fans — erupted into a roar as UNC began an on-court celebration while the Blue Devils began to dejectedly untuck their jerseys on their way back to the bench. The Blue Devils imposed their will in an impressive blowout road win in February, only to see the Tar Heels come through with a win in Krzyzewski’s final home game at Duke. And they kept the pressure on Duke every time down the court, particularly Love with 22 points after the break.wftv.com
Roach makes his move with a March surge for Blue Devils
That includes Sunday's NCAA Tournament win against Michigan State to secure a spot in this week's Sweet 16, when Roach finished with 15 points and a critical late 3-pointer in a comeback victory. “Just the biggest thing for me is keeping that same confidence and consistency and the hard work,” Roach said. Yet as they prepare to face third-seeded Texas Tech on Thursday in San Francisco, the Blue Devils are getting a major boost from Roach down the stretch, too. After averaging 7.5 points on 38% shooting through the first 30 games, Roach is averaging 13.2 points on 53% shooting in the last six. Those plays all stood out to Michigan State Hall of Famer Tom Izzo.wftv.com

Russia's reputation, Olympic status on trial for doping
(Alexei Nikolsky, Sputnik, Kremlin Pool Photo via AP, File)GENEVA – Russia’s status as an Olympic team, and its reputation as a serial cheater in international sports, goes on trial next week in more legal fallout from the country's state-backed doping saga. WADA would let Russian athletes compete only if not implicated in doping or cover-ups. WADA says details of doping tests and emails were deleted or changed, and false trails created to frame whistleblowers. The International Olympic Committee refused WADA’s request to ban Russia outright from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games. RUSADA rejected WADA’s proposed punishment, and Russian Olympic officials later fired the RUSADA chief executive who acknowledged the wrongdoing.
