Miles McBride scored six of his season-high 21 points in the final 2:22 and No. 22 West Virginia rallied to beat No. 2 Ohio State 67-59 Sunday.

The Mountaineers (11-1) trailed by nine late in the first half but went ahead for good at 55-54 on a push-shot by Derek Culver with 3:31 left. McBride, a freshman guard, followed with two free throws and an 18-foot jump shot to extend the lead to 59-54.

Kaleb Wesson’s 3-pointer pulled the Buckeyes (11-2) within 61-57 with 51 seconds remaining, but they missed two shots on their next possession. Ohio State was held to a season low in points and committed season highs of 22 turnovers and 25 fouls.

West Virginia put the game away on two free throws by Jordan McCabe and a steal and score by Chase Harler to take its largest lead at 65-57. Harler scored 10 points and Culver finished with seven points and 10 rebounds.

Wesson had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Buckeyes, who have split their last four games. Kyle Young grabbed 11 rebounds and Duane Washington Jr. had 12 points.

Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins is 3-0 against Ohio State since taking over the program in 2007 and recorded his 19th win over a top 10 team with West Virginia.

The matchup drew a near-capacity crowd of 16,781 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, the home of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers. It was the first college game in the arena since its two-year renovation was completed in September.

BIG PICTURE

West Virginia: The Mountaineers moved up three spots in the AP poll after a 75-64 victory at Youngstown State on Dec. 21. They started the season 10-1 for the fifth time in six years, dropping a 70-68 decision against St. John’s in New York on Dec. 7.

Ohio State: The Buckeyes won their first nine games before losing 84-71 at Minnesota on Dec. 15. They began the season ranked No. 18 and have been in the top 10 since Nov. 18. Ohio State has only played two true road games.

Liverpool 50 games unbeaten at home with 1-0 win v Wolves

Westlake Legal Group Sadio-Mane Liverpool 50 games unbeaten at home with 1-0 win v Wolves fox-news/sports/soccer fnc/sports fnc d81bb9d5-8f58-5603-8221-bc916891ebf6 Associated Press article

Liverpool extended its unbeaten home run in the Premier League to 50 games with a 1-0 win against Wolverhampton in a scrappy match where two video replays went in the runaway league leader’s favor.

Liverpool is 13 points clear of second-place Leicester, having played one game less.

Sadio Mané’s goal in the 42nd minute was allowed after VAR ruled out a handball from passer Adam Lallana, and a Wolves equalizer from Pedro Neto in first-half injury time was not allowed because VAR revealed there was a fractional offside beforehand.

It is the second time in Liverpool’s history it has gone 50 league games at home unbeaten in the top division. Chelsea is the only other side to have previously reached the mark – once.

The Champions League winners, however, looked tired after a hectic recent schedule.

After Mohamed Salah’s tame volley was easily saved and Roberto Firmino’s glancing header from a corner went wide, Mané swept the ball in from close range. Lallana had moved smartly between two defenders to reach Virgil van Dijk’s long pass and knock the ball down.

Referee Anthony Taylor called for a video replay, which established that the ball struck the top of Lallana’s shoulder and not his arm. It appeared unclear, however, if Van Dijk hand-balled when receiving a high ball before launching his pass to Lallana.

There was more frustration to come for the angry Wolves bench.

After Van Dijk, Firmino, and Trent Alexander-Arnold all failed to clear a cross from the right, Neto finished neatly from 15 meters out.

Neto’s joy was swiftly cut short as images showed Jonny was fractionally offside — because his hand was ahead of the defender marking him.

Wolves forced a corner in the final seconds of injury time, and Anfield roared in collective relief when Van Dijk headed it clear.

Disneyland hit capacity on Friday, stopped selling tickets

Disneyland is full.

At least, it was for a period of time late last week when the park reached capacity.

During this time period, wait times for popular rides reportedly hit multiple hours.

Disneyland stopped selling tickets after reaching capacity on Friday afternoon, the Los Angeles Times reported. This was the first time Disneyland has had to halt ticket sales since the May opening of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land, which expanded the park’s total size.

The holiday season has been an extremely popular time for families to visit Disneyland, along with the mid-summer months.

In a statement obtained by the Los Angeles Times, a spokesperson for Disney said, “Visiting the Disneyland Resort during the holidays is a tradition for many people, and on high demand days like today, we do all we can to welcome as many guests as possible.”

The news outlet also reported that wait times for popular rides such as Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Space Mountain ranged from 65 minutes to two hours during the afternoon.

Earlier this year, guests at Disneyland reported that the park felt emptier than usual.

While the opening of the new Star Wars land drew massive crowds, guests noted a significant decrease in waiting time for the park’s attraction in the following months. This was attributed to several reasons.

In preparation for the opening, the park widened walkways, moved planters and made other moves to make moving around the park easier.

A drop in the number of guests was noted, however, as attendance reportedly slipped 3 percent across Disney’s domestic parks.

Anna Paquin says she’s ‘incredibly happy’ with seven-word role in ‘The Irishman’

Oscar winner Anna Paquin may only speak seven words in “The Irishman,” Martin Scor­sese’s new epic, but she’s not complaining — even though her furious fans on Twitter are.

One said, “I had more lines in the Nativity play I was in when I was seven than Anna Paquin has in ‘The Irishman,’ ” while another added, “Teacher says every time Anna Paquin talks in ‘The Irishman,’ ‘Cats’ gets a good review.”

ROBERT DE NIRO DEFENDS ANNA PAQUIN’S SEVEN-WORD ROLE IN ‘THE IRISHMAN’

But the “True Blood” actress, who plays Robert De Niro’s adult daughter in the Netflix mob drama, said: “It’s very endearing when people think they are fighting a fight on your behalf, but not really necessary. I’m incredibly happy.”

MARTIN SCORSESE ALMOST DIRECTED ‘JOKER’: ‘I DIDN’T HAVE THE TIME FOR IT’

She told the Hollywood Reporter: “I have such a tiny little role in the film, and I was so excited to get to be a part of it in the first place, and all of this [awards recognition] is just the icing on the cake.”

Paquin said even though the role is small, it was an immediate yes. “I just can’t picture any actor on the planet going, ‘Yeah, I don’t want to work with Martin Scorsese and every single living legend in our field.’ ”

Padma Lakshmi strips down for new photo shoot

Padma Lakshmi is comfortable in her skin — and she’s not afraid to bare it all.

The 49-year-old TV personality posed completely nude and went makeup-free for a photo shoot, sharing the image to Instagram on Saturday.

Lakshmi, who is seen lying down as she gazes into the camera, simply captioned the black-and-white photo with a heart emoji.

PADMA LAKSHMI OPENS UP ABOUT WHY SHE CRIED ON HALLOWEEN

Fans were quick to comment on the snapshot with a slew of positive remarks.

“Stunning so beautiful,” wrote one person. “No makeup perfection,” said another individual. “Absolutely gorgeous!” commented another person.

Lakshmi, who last month shared a nude photo of herself relaxing in a bathtub after being on the road, doesn’t have any issue posting pictures of her body on social media.

PADMA LAKSHMI STUNS IN RED STRING BIKINI

In an interview with Bravo, the former model spoke about how she wants to promote a healthy body image and self-love.

“I really think that it’s kinda bullsh– that Instagram will put little stars or whatever on your nipples [to censor them] but men can go topless left and right,” she said.

“I find that sexist. We’re so afraid of female sexuality in its raw and natural form. We’re okay with it being siliconed-out and retouched but an actual woman’s real body is, I think, one of the most stunning forms in Mother Nature. So what’s the big deal?”

Lakshmi is currently working on a new Hulu series called “Taste the Nation,” which she is writing and executive producing.

The mom of one also has the next season of “Top Chef” in the works. She’s been hosting the Bravo cooking competition series since the second season in 2006.

US conducts airstrikes against Iraq, Syria after contractor killed, American troops injured in rocket attack

The U.S. military carried out airstrikes in Iraq and Syria on Sunday — days after a U.S. defense contractor was killed at a military compound in a rocket attack.

Military jet fighters conducted “precision defensive strikes” against five sites of Kataeb Hezbollah, an Iran-backed Iraqi militia, Jonathan Hoffman, a spokesperson for the Pentagon told Fox News. Two defense officials added that Air Force F-15 jet fighters carried out the strikes.

U.S. officials have blamed the militia for a rocket barrage Friday that killed a U.S. defense contractor, wounded four U.S. troops and two members of the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) near Kirkuk, in northern Iraq.

Military forces said the attackers fired more than 30 rockets in Friday’s assault — the 11th rocket attack on U.S. and Iraqi forces since late October, according to a U.S. defense official.

Five locations — including three Kataeb Hezbollah areas in Iraq and two in Syria — were targeted, Hoffman said in a statement.

He said the U.S. strikes will weaken the group’s ability to carry out future attacks on Americans and their Iraqi government allies.

Earlier this month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for two separate rocket attacks on the Baghdad International Airport, on Dec. 9 and 11, where U.S. and Iraqi forces are located on the other side of the commercial airport.

Pompeo said if any Americans were harmed in the future, it would “be answered with a decisive U.S. response.”

Antonio Brown ‘blew away’ Saints in workout as team awaits for clarity regarding his status: report

Westlake Legal Group Antonio-Brown1 Antonio Brown 'blew away' Saints in workout as team awaits for clarity regarding his status: report Ryan Gaydos fox-news/sports/nfl/new-orleans-saints fox-news/sports/nfl fox-news/person/antonio-brown fox news fnc/sports fnc article 25ff2e58-a9da-501c-ba2e-e586b65f4e1a

Antonio Brown reportedly “blew away” the New Orleans Saints during his workout and the team would like to sign the free-agent wide receiver but are waiting to see if the NFL will punish him over the sexual assault and rape allegations against him.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter provided the update on ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown.”

ANTONIO BROWN WORKS OUT FOR NEW ORLEANS SAINTS AHEAD OF PLAYOFFS, TEAM DOING ‘DUE DILIGENCE’: REPORT

“The Saints worked out Antonio Brown on Friday, and he caught every single thing that was thrown to him. He blew away the Saints in the workout, we knew he would,” Schefter said.

“The issue is the NFL. The Saints would like to sign Antonio Brown, but they’re waiting for the NFL to issue a ruling, and there’s been no clarity from the NFL as to when the league might make a ruling on the sexual assault allegations that were levied against Antonio Brown in the NFL’s active investigation.

“So as long as the investigation is ongoing, the Saints can’t do anything, but they would be interested in signing him, if only he were free.”

ANTONIO BROWN SLAMS HIS OWN FATHER AFTER RECEIVING CRITICISM OVER HANDLING NFL’S PRESSURE

According to Schefter on Friday, the Saints were doing their “due diligence” ahead of the playoffs.

Brown previously played for the Pittsburgh Steelers before being traded to the Oakland Raiders in the off-season. He failed to play a regular-season snap, however, and was released following a turbulent offseason.

He was then picked up by the New England Patriots for 11 days before he was again released in the wake of allegations that he sexually assaulted and raped his former trainer and sent intimidating text messages to another woman who had also accused him of sexual misconduct.

ANTONIO BROWN REPORTEDLY FACING LENGTHY SUSPENSION AS WIDE RECEIVER PROMOTES RAP ALBUM ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Brown has since been an outspoken critic of the NFL and his former organizations. He has denied the allegations against him and most recently filed a lawsuit against his ex-girlfriend and mother of his three children, claiming she is refusing to leave his home despite being served with an eviction notice.

The Saints have a shot at the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs this season, which would mean a first-round bye, although both the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers would have to lose this weekend. If all three teams win this weekend, the Saints would be the No. 3 seed, which means they would host a wild card game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Texas church shooting leaves 2 dead, witness says gunman opened fire during communion

Two people were killed and another person was injured in a shooting at a church in Texas on Sunday, according to officials.

The incident happened around 9:57 a.m. a.m. at the West Freeway Church of Christ, which is located in the city of White Settlement, just outside of Fort Worth.

“It’s all very tragic,” Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Mike Drivdahl told reporters.

MedStar, the ambulance service provider to Fort Worth and other cities in north Texas, confirmed to Fox News that two people were killed while another person was in critical condition.

Huckabee agrees with Gabbard’s prediction that impeachment will ‘embolden’ Trump

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-12-29-at-12.14.53-PM Huckabee agrees with Gabbard's prediction that impeachment will ‘embolden’ Trump Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 4e929c84-a20d-58c1-b646-733473102681

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Sunday that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI., was correct in saying that the House Democrat-led impeachment push would embolden President Trump supporters.

“She’s absolutely right,” Huckabee told “Fox & Friends.” “What she said was 100 percent right. This impeachment nonsense which she did not vote for. She voted ‘present’ and I thought that probably really stirred them up.”

TRUMP HAS ‘RESPECT’ FOR TULSI GABBARD VOTING ‘PRESENT’ ON IMPEACHMENT

“This is only going to not just embolden Donald Trump but, more importantly, I can guarantee it has emboldened his supporters, including me,” Huckabee said.

Huckabee’s comments came after Tusli told ABC News in a one-on-one interview, “I think impeachment, unfortunately, will only further embolden Donald Trump, increase his support and the likelihood that he’ll have a better shot at getting elected while also seeing the likelihood that the House will lose a lot of seats to Republicans.”

Trump lauded Gabbard for voting “present” on the two articles of impeachment approved two weeks in the Democratic-controlled House.

“I give her respect. She didn’t vote the other day. I give her a lot of respect. Because she knew it was wrong. She took a pass,” Trump said during a speech last Saturday to the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Gabbard, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said she voted against impeachment because it did not have bipartisan support.

Huckabee said Gabbard appeared on his television show recently and credited her for being independent from the House Democrats’ impeachment push.

“She’s one of the smartest people, maybe the smartest one on the stage and the Democrats can’t stand her because she’s not a sheep,” Huckabee said.

Winter storm bringing ‘significant’ travel hazards after 470 crashes reported in Minnesota

An intensifying winter storm is forecast to wallop the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest through Monday, creating treacherous travel conditions across the region a day after freezing rain led to hundreds of crashes across Minnesota.

The National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center said the winter storm will bring heavy and blowing snow with blizzard conditions at times from northern Nebraska to northern Minnesota, with storm totals in excess of a foot possible in parts of the Dakotas and northwest Minnesota.

“The northern side of this is where we do have some snow. We also have some of the rain,” Fox News Chief Meteorologist Rick Reichmuth said on “Fox & Friends.” “It’s rain right now in Minneapolis, that will transition back to snow. It’s definitely rain in Chicago, throughout all of Wisconsin. Back side of this, some of those spots may be up to six to 12 inches of snow by the time this is all done.”

POLAR VORTEX, BOMB CYCLONE, SLEET: HERE’S WHAT THOSE WINTER WEATHER TERMS MEAN

The axis of the heaviest snow will shift to northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan by Monday, where six to 12 inches of snow is likely to bring “significant travel hazards” as areas of freezing rain also develop into the Northeast.

“A major ice storm is becoming more likely across northern New York and into central New England as warm air advection and moisture flux from the Atlantic Ocean overrides a shallow layer of sub-freezing temperatures near the surface,” according to forecasters. “The potential exists for a quarter to half an inch of ice accretion, and this will likely cause havoc for travelers and disrupt electrical service.”

Ice storm warnings have been posted to areas near Albany, N.Y. and in western Massachusetts and parts of Connecticut. Winter storm warnings have been issued further north, where “heavy mixed precipitation” is expected.

The storm system caused freezing rain across southern Minnesota on Saturday, causing 470 crashes across the region, the Minnesota State Patrol told FOX9.

Of the 470 crashes reported on Saturday, 43 involved injuries, and two were fatal.

In Stearns County, a fatal crash was reported around 4:30 a.m. in Brockway Township when a vehicle went off the road and crash into trees. Investigators told FOX9 the victim was thrown from the vehicle and died.
