â€œAs of today, video assistant refereeing is part of football,â€ he said. â€œWe hope and encourage a favourable decision in this respect because we are very positive about VAR.â€One of the concerns over VAR is that those watching are uncertain about what is going on, but Fifa says it is working on a system that will provide information to the â€œgiant screen operators as well as broadcasters and commentatorsâ€ about the reason and outcome of a review.â€œWhat is our idea (for the World Cup) is that after the final decision is taken by the referee on the pitch we would like to show in the stadium the selected replay that was used by the referee and VAR,â€ said Johannes Holzmuller, head of Fifa football technology innovation.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Video assistant referees are set to be used at this yearâ€™s World Cup in Russia after footballâ€™s lawmakers voted to approve the technology. VAR has been trialled in some domestic English cup games this season, and has been used in Germany and Italy.The International Football Association Board (Ifab) â€œunanimously approvedâ€ its introduction on a permanent basis after a meeting in Zurich yesterday. Leagues and competitions must now apply to Ifab to implement the system.Fifa president Gianni Infantino said a decision on whether VAR would be used at the World Cup will be taken at a meeting on March 16.
Marquis Marshall heard the chants in nearly all of his high school games.“You’re not your dad, you’re not your dad!”His mother, Jeneal Terry, sensed the weight it put on her son. Marshall’s dad, Donyell, starred for the Connecticut Huskies and played 15 years in the NBA. Marquis has forged a less-linear path, struggling to find stability and escape his father’s shadow. But after playing at both Division I and Division II schools, Marqius has discovered himself on the basketball court at Division III Alvernia (15-9, 9-6).Marquis, and his father, grew up in Reading, Pennsylvania. At Reading High School, Donyell played basketball under coach Mike Miller. In returning home to Alvernia, Marquis rekindled the Miller-Marshall duo. Miller is now the head coach at Alvernia, where Marshall is in his senior year.As he progressed through high school, Marquis Marshall grew into a D-I talent. A two-star recruit, per ESPN, he had at least five official offers, all from low-major schools. He chose Towson.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut if Marshall wanted to play serious minutes on a college basketball team, a Towson assistant advised, he would have to go elsewhere. Even though his time at Towson didn’t work out, Marshall felt it helped him grow as a person.“It was like the first stepping stone for me to grow up,” Marquis said. “Me going to college I was, like, very young. I wasn’t as mature as I am now … It was a step closer to who I am today.”East Stroudsburg, a D-II school in Pennsylvania, was the next stop. Marshall didn’t get off the ground there, as he had a recurring back injury. He played in only 14 games and averaged 4.3 minutes per game at ESU. Marshall left, discouraged, but had learned how to appreciate his health.“It made me more appreciative of being able to play this game healthy, as I am now” Marshall said. “East Stroudsburg just made me respect the game more.”After two failed attempts to play college hoops, Marshall decided he had one more shot. He would no longer be Marquis Marshall, the basketball-playing son of Donyell. He thought his basketball career had ended. He focused on getting his degree.Miller had witnessed firsthand the growth of Donyell as a person and basketball player. From coaching him in high school to going on his official recruiting visits, Miller became an important figure to Donyell. Miller said he was there with Donyell when Marquis was born. Central Catholic High School played its home games at Alvernia in Marquis’s sophomore and junior year. The Alvernia and Miller connections ran deep.But Marquis missed basketball too much and approached Miller to discuss joining the team. He debuted for Alvernia in January 2016. Only by playing for Miller could Marshall’s love of the game be reborn.“I think he found a home here,” Miller said. “Even though he went to different colleges, he’s found a home here.”One key to Marshall’s success at Alvernia has come down to his position. Marquis stands 6 feet, 5 inches, but is four inches shorter than his father. In his first two stops, Marquis spent a lot of time playing the wing, going against players who were quicker than he was. At Alvernia, Miller has played Marshall as his center. Combined with Alvernia running a Princeton-style offense — having all the players working around the perimeter with a lot of back-cuts — Marshall’s athleticism and passing ability have helped him shined.The Alvernia Crusaders have compiled a 15-9 record. They’re led in scoring (20.8), rebounding (9.4), and blocks (2.2) by Marqius, who doesn’t hear the chants anymore. There aren’t any. His play has spoken loud and clear.
