A couple of games into the season, South Florida and Virginia Tech will see how they react to vastly different situations.
They have short turnaround times to respond to their latest results.
South Florida (1-1) and Virginia Tech (2-0) face off Sunday night in the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-off at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.
Virginia Tech will enter the game on a huge high after a comeback for an 81-73 overtime victory against No. 3 Villanova late Saturday night.
“If we can take this and continue to build on this,” Hokies coach Mike Young said of the possibilities, calling the upset a good step two games into the season.
A couple of hours earlier, South Florida dropped an 84-68 decision to Rhode Island.
So much seems new in this season that began during the coronavirus pandemic, and Virginia Tech has experienced much of it.
The Hokies, who
“I never thought an alligator could be that fast. It was so quick,” Wilbanks told CNN, adding that it was a sudden rush of adrenaline that spurred him to “automatically” jump into the pond to save the life of his new pet, who he named Gunner.
Surveillance video released this week of the 20-second incident, shows Wilbanks waist-deep in the water groaning as he pulls his puppy out of the water with the American alligator still attached to the lower half of its body.
Wilbanks can be seen thrashing around in the pond while straining to free the whimpering puppy from the alligator’s clutches. More than 10 seconds later, Wilbanks succeeds in his bid to save the puppy — which is then seen running up the hillside away from the water and toward safety.
Wilbanks told CNN his hands were bloodied and “chewed up” after his battle with the alligator,

By providing seed and early-stage funding, the Institute enables businesses to develop and launch products in key sectors, including life sciences, information technology, homeland security and defense, logistics and distribution, and manufacturing.
The United States’ coral reefs are in fair condition, according to a recent reef condition status report, but vulnerable to decline. Scientists estimate that along the coast of Florida, where degradation is most severe, perhaps as little as 2% of original coral cover remains.
The report, released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (Noaa) and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science last week, assesses reefs along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, from the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico to Guam, Hawaii and American Samoa. It is the first of its kind to do so using standardized monitoring data on a national scale. Analyzing records from 2012 to 2018, researchers identify ocean warming and acidification, coral disease and fishing as ongoing threats to coral reefs, indicating a “dire outlook” for these ecosystems.

It turns out two falcons will make SpaceX’s next crewed mission to the International Space Station a reality.
A chartered Dassault Falcon 900 jet flew into Kennedy Space Center’s former Shuttle Landing Facility on Sunday, dropping off astronauts Victor Glover, Mike Hopkins, Shannon Walker, and Soichi Noguchi for the next phase of their launch preparations. NASA’s own Gulfstream jet was unavailable due to scheduled inspections.
The astronauts’ next ride: a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon capsule, currently slated for liftoff from pad 39A at 7:49 p.m. Saturday.
Despite winds and sporadic rains caused by the outer bands of Tropical Storm Eta, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, Deputy Administrator Jim Morhard, and KSC Director Bob Cabana were still able to hold a welcoming briefing on the flightline.
“It feels really good to be here,” Crew-1 mission commander Mike Hopkins said. “We’re

A new study by researchers at the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science projects an increase in Florida’s late summertime rainfall with rising Atlantic Ocean temperatures.
Scientists have known for years that Florida receives more rainfall in decades when North Atlantic waters are warmer than average, but the UM research team wanted to learn more about this interaction to help communities prepare for a wetter future. This study showed that ocean temperatures are most influential on Florida precipitation in late summer, during the region’s highest high tide events.
The researchers used a suite of climate models to show that the link between ocean temperatures and rainfall only develops as a result of human influences on the climate system, such as greenhouse gas emissions and industrial pollution.
“We know that humans are continuing to make North Atlantic waters warmer, so we expect an increase in late
