SAINT PAUL, Minn.  -- In the Quarterfinals of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup at Allianz Field on Wednesday night, Minnesota United met a New Mexico United squad with a reputation as giant killers.

Knick in Time

RJ Barrett, the 19-year-old grandson of Jamaicans, is greeted by National Basketball Association Commissioner Adam Silver after being selected by the New York Knicks with the third overall pick of the NBA draft held last month. The late Noel Duhaney, the Jamaican father of Barrett’s mother Kesha, used to root for the Knicks and watch games with his grandson. The parents of Barrett’s father Rowan were also from Jamaica. Barrett, a 6’ 7” player, is from Duke University. He said Duhaney told him he’d play for the Knicks and that’s the NBA team he wanted to play for as well.
