Man Blind in One Eye After De Sousa Bar Incident


A man has permanent damage to his left eye during a bar fight involving KU basketball player Silvio de Sousa, according to an affidavit.


The incident occurred early New Year's Day outside of Brother's Bar in Lawrence. The victim recalled that he was struck on the face by a closed right fist and bled from his eye after he was struck.


The alleged victim's mother informed officers that he was mildly autistic.


De Sousa announced a few weeks ago that he had planned on opting out of the 2020-21 basketball season. De Sousa has been suspended in the past for his legal guardian accepting money to play for the Kansas basketball program along with his part in the K-State-KU brawl that occurred in January in which he grabbed a barstool and tried to strike a K-State player with it.

Sedan Eliminated After Loss to Chase County


Sedan's undefeated season came to an abrupt end Friday night, as the Blue Devils were defeated by Chase County 56-18.


It was known coming into the contest that both teams were strong offensively, but the Bulldogs simply overwhelmed the Sedan defense all night, including a 55-yard touchdown rush on the very first play of the game. Chase County quarterback Mitchell Budke rushed for three touchdowns, threw for one, and even returned an interception for a touchdown late in the second quarter. 


Sedan would find some offense here and there, including a 33-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Eli Campbell to junior receiver Dameion Hatten. Campbell and Hatten would also connect for the game's longest offensive play, a 62-yard touchdown pass. However, Chase County would pull away early in the third quarter, and ultimately put the game out of reach to claim the regional title.


Sedan finishes its 2020 campaign with a record of 9-1 and a district title. With Sedan losing tonight and Oswego falling to Madison in other area action, Game of Week coverage has concluded for the year. 

Sedan Looking to Make Deeper Run Into Playoffs


Sedan will once again be the focus of our Game of the Week as the Blue Devils host a regional matchup against Chase County.


Sedan, still undefeated at 9-0, defeated Oxford 58-6 in last week's opening round. Quarterback Eli Campbell rushed for five touchdowns in that game and threw for one more. In the backfeld, Sedan employed a running back committee that included Garrett Everett and freshman Jeremiah Prince. The Blue Devil defense was also stout, forcing four Oxford turnovers.


However, the competition will be decidedly stiffer this round, as Chase County are themselves 7-2 and defeated Cedar Vale-Dexter last Thursday by a final of 66-0. The Bulldogs played some very good competition during the regular season, with their two losses coming to undefeated squads Lebo and Madison.


The winner of Friday's contest will move on to face the winner of Clifton-Clyde and Little River. In other area games, Oswego will continue their run toward an 8-man championship by taking on Madison, while Fredonia travels to Osage City for Class 2A action.
