New Orleans’ Buku Music + Art Project didn’t go as smoothly as its organizers would have liked, which is a shame because most of the issues weren’t their fault. After all, there’s not much you can do when three of the acts you booked—including rising young rapper Lil Uzi Vert—simply refuse to show up. There’s also not much you can do when your Friday night headliner (in this case, Atlanta rap superstars Migos) takes the stage half an hour late and delivers an underwhelming 25-minute set.No, all you can really do is dwell on the things that didn’t go wrong, and also maybe think twice about booking disrespectful young mumble rappers next time around. Fortunately for Buku, plenty of things went exactly as they were supposed to, and most fans left the growing EDM and hip-hop festival in good spirits despite the few setbacks.One set that went over very well was that of Saturday night’s big headliner, Bassnectar. Buku marked the pioneering DJ and producer’s first performance in the Big Easy since 2015, when he last held down the top-billing at the very same festival. Bassnectar’s combination of wobbly, almost psychedelic bass textures and skittish “drum and bass” breakdowns drew what was undoubtedly the largest crowd of the weekend to Buku’s newly-expanded main stage area, sending thousands of fans into a frenzy every time the music changed course. Decibally speaking, the show took things to a pretty high level, garnering noise complaints from exasperated New Orleanians on the other side of the Mississippi River.Other acts on the bill at Buku included alternative R&B artist SZA, who delivered one of the weekend’s more interesting displays of pop music until she was forced to cut her set a few minutes short due to an ankle injury, and psych-rockers MGMT, who offered up a solid mix of new material and old favorites from their 2007 breakthrough album Oracular Spectacular. Of course, Buku lived up to its reputation by featuring some of the most popular acts in electronic music, with well-attended sets from Rezz, Borgore, Alison Wonderland, Ganja White Night/Boogie T, Mura Masa, and Porter Robinson, who appeared under his new Virtual Self moniker. Hip-hop and indie-pop also got their due, as Isaiah Rashad, Noname, Sylvan Esso, and Little Dragon brought their sounds to the fest.Check out the full gallery below, courtesy of photographer Marissa Altazan.Buku Music + Art Project | Mardi Gras World | New Orleans, LA | 3/9-10/18 | Photos: Marissa Altazan Photo: Marissa Altazan Load remaining images

She turned to her head coach, Leigh Ross, who was standing nearby, and announced that they were going to win.She was right.Daniels’ triple in the bottom of the sixth propelled the Orange (17-15, 3-2 Big East) to a come-from-behind win Wednesday to defeat in-state rival St. John’s, 3-2, in the opening game of its doubleheader. SU scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth to win its home opener in conference play. This was the fourth game this season in which Syracuse has trailed by two and battled back to win.‘I can’t even imagine (the team) without (Daniels),’ SU head coach Leigh Ross said. ‘She’s feeling real confident in taking that role as being a leader.’With two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning, Daniels belted a liner that split the outfielders and went all the way to the wall in right center. She legged out a triple, and freshman Veronica Grant scored the game-winning run.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I knew (Daniels) was going to get something done,’ Ross said. ‘You knew (Daniels) was going to put us ahead in that game… It’s probably best that we had her in that situation. She was kind of thinking that all the way through the game anyway.’The Orange trailed early in this game after giving up a run in each of the first two innings. After that, sophomore pitcher Jenna Caira recovered and gave up just two hits after the second inning, allowing the team to chip away at the deficit.SU got one back after an infield single by freshman Stacy Kuwik scored Daniels in the bottom of the third. But the Orange was most impressive in its half of the sixth.Daniels’ triple was set up by a textbook display of fundamental softball. Sophomore first-baseman Kelly Saco reached base on a dropped pop fly and ended up at second. A sacrifice bunt moved Saco to third, and a single by Grant sent her home.Then, Daniels stepped to the plate. ‘I just keep doing what I do day in and day out,’ Daniels said. ‘My goal every day is to pick someone up. … I told Roni (Grant) that if she gets on, that’s my fire. That’s what I look for. I get really excited when she gets on base.’Nonetheless, Ross couldn’t downplay the importance of Saco’s hustle play. She could have just as easily assumed that the fly ball would be caught and jogged toward first, but instead she made the Red Storm pay for its error.‘That’s exactly what we talked about after the game,’ Ross said. ‘We may not be scoring those runs if Saco doesn’t run that out. That was great leadership.’Wednesday’s comeback fell just one run shy of the largest deficit that the team has overcome this season. In the first game of the LSU Purple and Gold Challenge, the Orange trailed 5-2 after 4.5 innings of play but rallied to beat Campbell, 7-5.As they’ve said all season, the players continue to be confident each and every time they take the field. Even when they’re trailing.‘St. John’s didn’t come off as very strong to me,’ freshman Veronica Grant said. ‘We just started slow. Being down against a team that we know we have the upper hand against, I had a lot of confidence that we were going to come back.’However, late-inning comebacks might not be something the Orange wants to get used to. This weekend the team tries to continue its three-game winning streak at home against Providence, a team that has scored more than a quarter of its runs in the sixth inning or later.‘We need to start playing that way as soon as we step on the field, every single minute out here,’ Ross said. ‘I think they kind of needed to hear that. …This team’s kind of a quiet team but they can get sparked up, and that’s okay if it’s at the right time.’[email protected]
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — After more than three hours bearing the cold, USC needed one more second, one more play and one more stand.It got all three.False alarm · USC’s defense celebrates its victory after what it thought was the final play of the game. The officials ruled that there was one second left on the clock, giving Notre Dame another chance, but the Trojans again prevented the Irish from scoring. – Dieuwertje Kast | Daily TrojanThe Trojans defense held strong on three straight passes to the end zone to stave off a furious Notre Dame comeback, securing a 34-27 win Saturday against the Fighting Irish at Notre Dame Stadium.The win was USC’s eighth straight against Notre Dame. But unlike the previous three routs by the Trojans, Saturday’s game resembled the 2005 “Bush Push” game that was defined by a final dramatic drive.Notre Dame took three potentially game-tying shots at the USC end zone, from the Trojans’ 4-yard line, but couldn’t complete the comeback. With nine seconds remaining, Notre Dame tight end Kyle Rudolph fought for a jump ball with USC cornerback T.J. Bryant in the corner of the end zone but was ruled out of bounds. On the next play, USC cornerback Josh Pinkard knocked down what he thought was the final play of the game as his teammates spilled onto the field to celebrate.But officials ruled that there was one second left on the clock, setting up USC’s defense for one final stand.“Whether we had to go back again or not, that just doubled the fun of trying to get it done,” USC coach Pete Carroll said.A pass intended for Notre Dame wide receiver Duval Kamara fell to the ground to clinch USC’s win.The last-second finish was unexpected for a USC team that had led 34-14 at the beginning of the fourth quarter. The Fighting Irish reeled off two quick touchdowns and came up with game-changing defensive plays, however, to keep the game competitive.After two straight blowout wins against Washington State and Cal, USC found itself in a similar position to the early portion of the season when it faced closely contested games against Ohio State and Washington. USC linebacker Chris Galippo called the frantic finishes the “theme of the season.”“This is the most stressed-out game I’ve had — way more than Ohio State,” Galippo said. “They just had chance after chance after chance.”USC appeared to have the game in hand at the beginning of the fourth quarter when it led 34-14. But Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen fought off a slow start to rally his team to within a few yards of the upset. The Heisman Trophy candidate connected with wide receiver Golden Tate on a 45-yard touchdown pass and found Tate again for a 15-yard score to draw the Fighting Irish within seven.Clausen finished 260 yards passing and three total touchdowns. His two touchdown passes were the first that USC’s defense had given up all year.“He’s a great football player,” Carroll said. “We’ve known that since he was 14. You’re seeing the culmination of a career and all that here.”But Clausen’s effort may have been eclipsed by USC quarterback Matt Barkley, who mirrored Clausen’s rise as a Southern California high school football legend. Barkley passed for a career-high 380 yards and two touchdowns on 19-of-29 passing.The true freshman tore up a blitz-happy defense that left itself vulnerable in the secondary throughout the day. Holding onto the ball until the last second, Barkley repeatedly found his two favorite targets, Damian Williams and Anthony McCoy, for big gains.After missing his first completion of the second half, Barkley completed seven straight passes for 195 yards.“There’s no way to describe it because there’s nobody else to compare him to in our history,” Carroll said of Barkley’s performance. “He’s just so poised and so comfortable in the arena that it doesn’t really matter where we’re playing. It doesn’t affect him.”Both Williams and McCoy finished with more than 100 yards receiving on the day. Williams had two touchdowns, including a 41-yard jaunt on a screen when an unsuccessful Notre Dame blitz left the Fighting Irish undermanned on the perimeter.“I already knew I had [the touchdown] by the time I got the ball,” Williams said. “It was three-on-two and that usually works out for us.”Carroll highlighted penalties and a lack of forced turnovers as two of the biggest reasons for the Trojans’ inability to close out in the fourth quarter. USC forced four fumbles but did not recover any of them.The Trojans committed eight penalties for 70 yards but were flagged frequently in the second half at critical junctures. Senior safety Taylor Mays and redshirt sophomore defensive end Malik Jackson both earned personal foul penalties on the final drive to shorten the field for the Fighting Irish.“I really think without the knuckleheaded 15-yarders that kept moving the football, we were going to be OK,” Carroll said of the final drive.For a Notre Dame team whose last five games have all been decided by seven points or fewer, the failed final drive was devastating.“We just were hoping that we would score, and when we didn’t, it was like someone drove a knife into our hearts,” said Notre Dame linebacker Brian Smith.The frigid weather and close finish may not have been to the Trojans’ liking, but the atmosphere served as an initiation into a storied history for many of the players.“I kind of understand now why this rivalry is so big,” Barkley said.
