NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Major League Baseball Coach Antoan Richardson has worked in and around sports for most of his life. 

His latest endeavor aims to equip young athletes with tools they need to succeed at the next level and beyond.

Ethan Bain partnered with Richardson.

LDK is making a big splash in the local sporting community already. They held a showcase just last month.

LDK doesn’t only work with athletes, it aims to improve youth sports in The Bahamas by empowering coaches with the tools to be better mentors and teachers.

They’re just getting started and they have big plans for this year and beyond.

NCAA, NBA

In college A.J. Storr had 14 as his Wisconsin Badgers lost to Rutgers 78-56 and Deyton Albury had only five points as Queens University lost to Austin Peay 79-76. 

Over in the NBA, Buddy Hield did everything for the Philadelphia 76ers in his second game, going for 23 points, five rebounds, six assists and an opportunistic four steals to help them get a 119-113 win against the Washington Wizards.

Eric Gordon’s Phoenix Suns took on Klay Thompson’s Warriors Saturday night with Thompson’s Warriors getting their 4th straight win 113-112 thanks to a clutch three-pointer from Stephen Curry with 0.7 seconds left in the game.  Thompson had a rough night scoring five points on 2-10 shooting while Gordon had seven off the bench. 

Deandre Ayton was big in the paint for his Portland Trailblazers scoring 18 points grabbing 17 rebounds and blocking three shots, unfortunately, that wasn’t enough to beat the New Orleans Pelicans. They lost 93-84. 

Track and Field

And just before we go, hurdler Devynne Charlton ran a new world record time of 7.67 seconds in the women’s 60m hurdles at the Milrose Games in New York.

Charlton broke the previous record set by Susanna Kallur in 2008.

Coming behind Charlton was Danielle Williams of Jamaica in 7.79 seconds a season’s best for her and in third Tia Jones of the United States in 7.79 seconds to round out the top three.

In a tweet from Prime Minister Philip Davis, he said Charlton has redefined excellence and lifted Bahamian spirits.

Congratulations Devynne!
