Prosecutors have said Mullen and another man, Daniel Harden, tried to rob Jose Hansen on Sept. 11, 2017, and Hansen was shot in the back. Harden was acquitted of murder and weapons charges but convicted of robbery conspiracy. He was sentenced in January to 40 to 44 years.

January 28, 2020 (McCook, Neb.) An inmate was apprehended shortly after jumping the fence at the Work Ethic Camp (WEC) in McCook this morning. The escape occurred just before 9:30 a.m. Ryan Lykens #76263 (37) was taken into custody near the facility around 45 minutes later.

Staff members noticed that razor wire along the fence line at the facility had been pushed aside and followed tracks in the snow to a nearby canyon. While Lykens moved through the canyon, staff members from WEC continued their search. When they found him, he refused multiple directives to stop and surrender. Staff members then deployed chemicals (oleoresin capsicum) to gain his compliance. Shortly thereafter, deputies arrived on the scene and took Lykens into custody.

Lykens was taken to an area urgent care facility for stitches resulting from an injury he received during the escape. Two staff members received scrapes and bruises when they accidentally ran into a snow-covered fence during the search.

Lykens is currently sentenced on charges out of Dodge County including possession of a deadly weapon, terroristic threats and domestic assault. He has a tentative release date of October 31, 2020. In April 2019, Lykens was released on parole. In December he violated his parole and was returned to the custody of NDCS.

Lykens will be moved to the Red Willow County jail. Authorities will determine if he will face additional charges resulting from the escape.

The Work Ethic Camp is a minimum security facility. Inmates are able to work in the community with intermittent supervision.

Volleyball standout Jordan Larson was announced as the second member of the 2020 University of Nebraska Athletic Hall of Fame class on Wednesday, April 1. Larson is the first of five student-athletes in the 2020 class to be recognized. Volleyball head coach Terry Pettit was announced as the first member of the 2020 Hall of Fame class on March 31.

A native of Hooper, Nebraska, Larson was a standout on some of the greatest teams in program history from 2005 to 2008. She helped Nebraska to a top-five NCAA Tournament finish in each of her four seasons. The Huskers went 127-8 during her career with four Big 12 Conference titles and three trips to the NCAA Semifinals, including the 2006 national title and a runner-up finish in 2005.

Individually, Larson was an All-American on the court and in the classroom. She was a three-time All-American and a two-time first-team All-American. At the conference level, Larson was a two-time Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and the 2008 Big 12 Player of the Year. She was also an Academic All-American as a senior. Larson finished her Husker career with 1,600 kills, 1,410 digs and a school-record 186 aces. She is currently one of only two players in program history to rank among Nebraska’s all-time top 10 in both kills and digs.

Larson then went on to a decorated international career. She was a two-time Olympic medalist, helping Team USA to a silver medal in 2012 and a bronze medal in 2016. Larson helped Team USA win the gold medal at the 2014 world championships, the first-ever major tournament gold medal for the U.S. women’s national team. Larson was then named USA Volleyball’s Indoor Female Player of the Year in both 2015 and 2016.

The remaining four student-athletes in the 2020 Nebraska Athletic Hall of Fame Class will be announced over the next few weeks on the official Nebraska Athletics Twitter account (@Huskers) and on Huskers.com.

Four more student-athletes to be announced
 
Jordan Larson, Volleyball (2005-08), Hooper, Nebraska

Jordan Larson led Nebraska to an outstanding four-year run on the volleyball court before continuing on to a stellar international career. The Huskers went 127-8 (.941) during Larson’s four-year career, winning the Big 12 Conference championship and posting a top-five NCAA finish in each of her four seasons. After an NCAA runner-up finish in her freshman year when she was the regional freshman of the year, Larson was a first-team All-American and the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year as a sophomore. That season, the Huskers won the 2006 NCAA title in Omaha in front of what was then the largest volleyball crowd in NCAA history. After earning third-team All-America honors as Nebraska made a regional final in 2007, Larson was a first-team All-American again in 2008. As a captain that season, Larson helped Nebraska advance to its third NCAA Semifinal in four years, where the Huskers lost a 3-2 thriller to Penn State, handing the Nittany Lions their only two set losses of the entire season. Larson was also the 2008 Big 12 Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year and a second-team Academic All-American. Larson finished her career with 1,600 kills, 1,410 digs and a school-record 186 aces. Following her time as a Husker, Larson represented the United States in both the 2012 and 2016 Olympics. She was a silver medalist in 2012 and bronze medalist in 2016, becoming the only Husker volleyball player to be a two-time Olympic medalist. Larson was named USA Volleyball’s Indoor Female Player of the Year in both 2015 and 2016. In 2014, she helped Team USA win the gold medal at the world championships, the first-ever major tournament gold medal for the U.S. women’s national team. Her No. 10 jersey is retired, and Larson graduated with a degree in communication studies from the University of Nebraska in 2008.

They voted to modify the playoff format with two additional wild-card teams in the Super Bowl chase. The playoffs will be expanded by one team in each conference for a total of 14. The 16-game season and full playoffs would include the two stadiums still under construction in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, plus international games in England and Mexico.

LAKE FOREST, Ill (AP) — The Chicago Bears have finalized a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars for 2018 Super Bowl MVP quarterback Nick Foles. The Bears are hoping Foles will return to form following an injury-riddled season with Jacksonville. Foles would give them another option if Mitchell Trubisky struggles again or gets hurt next year. The Jaguars parted with the 31-year-old Foles just over a year after signing him to a four-year contract. Foles helped Philadelphia win a Super Bowl.

SAN JOSE, Calif (AP) —San Jose Sharks President Jonathan Becher says the team made the best decision with the information at the time when it played three home games following a recommendation by the county against large gatherings in early March. Santa Clara County issued a recommendation on March 5 that mass gatherings should be postponed or canceled to control the spread of the new coronavirus.

UNDATED (AP) — The NCAA's popular decision to extend spring sports athletes' eligibility a year because of the coronavirus pandemic is causing consternation for baseball coaches. Baseball is the only spring sport with a roster limit. Teams can have no more than 35 players, though that rule will be relaxed in 2021. The problem comes in 2022. Looming roster logjams because of the extended eligibility could force coaches to sign smaller recruiting classes and nudge underperforming players to transfer or quit.

UNDATED (AP) — They can’t face off on the hardwood right now, so Kevin Durant and Trae Young will lead a 16-player field of NBA players in an NBA 2K20 tournament airing on ESPN.

Play begins Friday, and the winner of the week-long competition will receive a $100,000 donation to a coronavirus-related relief effort of their choice.

(AP) — Michigan forward Isaiah Livers is applying for early entry into the NBA draft, but the school said he is not hiring an agent and would work with the Wolverines coaching staff during the evaluation and pre-draft processes.

Livers averaged 12.9 points for the Wolverines this past season and was limited to 21 games due to injury problems.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A woman who said she was sexually assaulted by a Michigan State basketball player is asking the Michigan attorney general's office to investigate, according to a published report.

Lincoln – The Nebraska men’s basketball program will resume one of its oldest rivalries beginning next season, as the Huskers and Kansas State have signed an agreement to begin a three-year series starting in 2020-21.

The series will begin on December 19, 2020, with a neutral-site matchup at the Sprint Center in Kansas City before shifting to campus sites the following two seasons. The Wildcats will make their first-ever appearance at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Dec. 18, 2021, while the Huskers will visit Bramlage Coliseum on Dec. 17, 2022, to conclude the series.

“We are excited to renew this series with Kansas State,” Nebraska Coach Fred Hoiberg. “There is more than a century of history between the two programs, and this is a matchup that our fans will look forward to over the next three seasons.  The series upgrades our non-conference schedule as we build our program. Playing in the Sprint Center this December should also be a fun experience for our fans and student-athletes because of the number of Husker alums in the Kansas City area and the ability to make it a weekend trip around the holidays.”

The series between the Huskers and Wildcats dates back to the 1905-06 season, as the schools were members of the Missouri Valley, Big Eight and Big 12 Conferences before the Huskers joined the Big Ten in 2011. The Wildcats lead the all-time series, 127-93, but the teams have not met since Feb. 23, 2011, a 61-57 Kansas State win in Lincoln. Nebraska’s last win in the series was a 73-51 win at the Devaney Center in 2009.

The Wildcats have won 20 or more games in three of the past four seasons under Bruce Weber, reaching the Elite Eight in the 2017-18 campaign.

Today's announcement is the second non-conference addition on the 2020-21 Nebraska men's basketball schedule, as ESPN announced last November that Nebraska will compete in the Myrtle Beach Invitational (Nov. 19-22).

UNDATED (AP) — Players have agreed to a deal with Major League Baseball that would preserve service time in the event this season is canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. However, the two sides have left open details of what a configured schedule would look like.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — The International Olympic Committee now says it will consider the possibility of postponing the Tokyo Olympics. The IOC says it will hold four weeks of discussions with global sports officials and Japanese authorities to examine the options. It says “scenario planning” will include the possibility of changing the July 24 start date for the Games, but that “cancellation is not on the agenda.” The IOC has been insisting the Games would go on as scheduled, even as athlete training, qualifying events and preparations for the Games have been disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.

TORONTO (AP) — The Canadian Olympic Committee has announced it will not send a team to the Tokyo Games unless they are postponed for a year.
