The Kentucky Wildcats are the first 36-0 team in college basketball history, and everyone in the state – including one grocery store owner – is trying to get in on the action. The Pikeville Walmart apparently has an incredible Kentucky soda display, complete with the team’s record. In the below photo, taken by a Wildcats fan named Brian Daniels, UK’s logo is made out of Sprite Zero cases, while the W/L columns are made out of Coke Zero cases.

SchefterVirtually every year during the NFL Draft process, a few high-profile prospects fail drug tests from February’s combine. That is, until 2016. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, not one player tested positive at this year’s event in Indianapolis, something that is almost unprecedented.For the first time in recent memory, NFL has notified all 32 teams that no player tested positive at February combine, per league sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 25, 2016No matter where you fall on the subject of recreational drug use, most would hope that a player can avoid failing a test that they know is coming at the combine. Almost every draft class has a few players fail and see their stock suffer, so congratulations to the class of 2016 for bucking that trend.
MONTREAL – Ex-ski coach Bertrand Charest is appealing his conviction on 37 sex-related charges, with documents filed Tuesday seeking an acquittal or a new trial.A lawyer for the former high-performance trainer has gone to the Quebec Court of Appeal, alleging a lengthy list of legal errors made by the trial judge.Quebec court Judge Sylvain Lepine called Charest a sexual predator when he convicted him last month on charges involving nine of the 12 women who’d accused him of crimes dating back more than 20 years.The judge said Charest’s actions constituted an unequivocal abuse of trust and power and said the victims, young aspiring skiers under Charest’s guidance, were all credible and reliable.In his appeal, defence lawyer Antonio Cabral took issue with the description of Charest as a “veritable predator.”“No evidence, no complainant, no expert came to establish this fact (that he was a predator) during the trial that took place before him,” he wrote.Cabral has raised nearly 20 legal issues in the appeal, including the credibility Lepine assigned to the victims.“In effect, there were numerous contradictions raised in cross-examination on essential elements of the infractions,” Cabral wrote, noting they were outlined in the defence’s 162-page final arguments.The 57 initial charges against Charest included sexual assault, sexual exploitation and one of sexual assault causing bodily harm. All but one was under the age of 18 at the time of the offences, with the youngest victim being 12.Charest, who didn’t testify at his trial, was acquitted on 18 of the charges, while the court said it didn’t have jurisdiction over two other counts related to incidents that occurred abroad.Some of the victims testified they had sexual relationships with Charest. Others said he touched them inappropriately.Some also said they felt they were in love with Charest at the time but eventually came to believe they had been manipulated.He was described as controlling and manipulative toward the athletes whose careers he managed.One former pupil testified she had to have an abortion when she was about 15 after getting pregnant following unprotected sex with Charest.The encounters continued afterward, with Charest purchasing contraceptives for her and getting a prescription from his own father.She testified she was young and in love with her coach and that Charest advised her to keep their relationship quiet because he would go to prison if it became known.Quebec’s director of criminal and penal prosecutions acknowledged Tuesday an appeal had been filed, but declined further comment.Some of the offences took place both before and during Charest’s stint with Alpine Canada’s women’s development team between 1996 and 1998. The national ski organization said in a statement after the verdict was rendered that it sent a message that abusing authority has no place in sports or in society in general.Charest has been detained since March 2015 arrest and the sentencing phase of his case is set to begin Aug. 23.
CALGARY, A.B. — The chief executive of Encana Corp. says the company will ramp up output from its U.S. and Canadian oil and gas fields this year after it reported first-quarter operating earnings and production that missed analyst expectations.“We are well-positioned to execute another year of strong growth for Encana as we prepare to cross the 400,000 boe (barrels of oil equivalent) per day milestone later this year,” said Doug Suttles on a conference call.Encana reported first-quarter production of 324,400 barrels of oil equivalent per day, with 145,200 barrels per day of more valuable oil and natural gas liquids and the rest dry natural gas. Revenue in the quarter came to US$1.3 billion, beating the forecast for US$1.26 billion, and up from US$1.29 billion in the same quarter last year. That’s up from 317,900 boepd in the same period last year, but short of analyst consensus expectations of 338,000 boepd, according to a report from analyst Kristopher Zack of Desjardins Capital Markets, who had forecast for 331,500 boepd.He said the miss is partly due to timing of drilling wells and producing from them.“In the second half of last year, and particularly in the Duvernay and the Eagle Ford, we ramped down activity and we restarted and ramped up that activity here in the first quarter,” said Suttles. “We’ll actually see production build in the second half of the year in those two assets.”Encana is focused on four areas, the Permian and Eagle Ford regions in Texas and the Montney and Duvernay regions on the Alberta-B.C. border. It said most of its growth this year will come from its more highly developed Permian and Montney assets while output from the other two will remain flat.Encana said it expects fourth-quarter production this year to be between 400,000 and 425,000 boepd. It left its 2018 spending plan unchanged at between US$1.8 billion and US$1.9 billion.The Calgary-based company, which reports in U.S. dollars, had operating income of US$156 million in the three months ended March 31, missing analyst expectations of US$168 million according to Thomson Reuters. A year ago, its operating income was US$104 million.
