GOP senator: Still "work to do" to get Kavanaugh confirmed
Confirmation of Mr Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge, would cement conservative control of the nation's highest court. Senator Dianne Feinstein, the committee's senior Democrat, called Kavanaugh's remarks unseemly for a judicial nominee.

"We are all devastated". To say we are grief-stricken is an understatement. We need your prayers for Wayde, for his family, for all of us.

"Maybe the guy I've been most impressed with is Wayde Sims", Wade said on 104.5 FM ESPN's "Off the Bench".

"Wayde Sims' loss is simply unbelievable to us right now", vice chancellor and director of athletics Joe Alleva said. "He was on a big time upward trajectory". He put up 6.5 points and 3.8 rebounds as a freshman. He was a high school prodigy and was named the Louisiana Gatorade Player of the Year in 2015.
