   Rock Hill Mayor Daniel DiPlacido is not going to run for reelection.

   DiPlacido made the announcement at Tuesday night's city board meeting.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that DiPlacido read a brief statement saying there were a number of reasons for his "difficult decision," but he didn't elaborate on what those reasons were.  

   The filing deadline for the April election closed earlier in the day, so Alderman Edward Mahan will be the only mayoral candidate on the ballot in Rock Hill.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A week ago, LSU failed to execute in the final minutes of regulation and dropped an overtime decision to Ole Miss.
 
The results were the opposite for LSU against Missouri on Tuesday. Jordan Mickey scored four points and Anthony Hickey sank four consecutive free throws in the final minute and LSU held off the Tigers for a 77-71 Southeastern Conference win.
 
Hickey, who entered the game shooting 50 percent from the free-throw line, was fouled on purpose twice by Missouri. Hickey made his first pair of free throws to give LSU a 74-68 lead with 37 seconds remaining.
 
Following a 3-pointer by Jabari Brown, Hickey was again fouled. Hickey sank two more free throws with 17 seconds left to push LSU ahead 76-71.
 
"It was a great team effort out there," LSU coach Johnny Jones said. "Missouri played aggressive in the second half, tied it and eventually took the lead. I'm really proud of how our team bore their neck.
 
"They played with a sense of urgency and toughness down the stretch," Jones said. "They got stops and tough rebounds on the defensive end. Then, they were able to execute on the offensive end. They knocked down some big free throws."
 
Shavon Coleman led LSU (12-5, 3-2) with a season-high 19 points. Johnny O'Bryant added 16 points, while Andre Stringer had 12. Mickey scored 14 points and grabbed 13 rebounds.
 
"Towards the end of the game, you have to get the ball inside and get some fouls," Mickey said. "You don't want to keep taking jump shots that can allow the other team to get back in the game, so you have to go inside and try to get some easy layups."
 
Brown had a career-high 28 points for Missouri (14-4, 2-3). Jordan Clarkson contributed 19 points, while Earnest Ross had 16.
 
"You can't take anything away from our guys' competitive spirit," Missouri coach Frank Haith said. "LSU made some big shots and made their free throws when they went to the line down the stretch. We were slow reacting a little bit on defense. It obviously wasn't one of our better moments defensively."
 
Missouri, which trailed for most of the game, went ahead 65-64 on a 3-pointer by Brown with 3:39 remaining. LSU's Mickey replied with two free throws and a field goal and Coleman made a layup after a steal by Tim Quarterman.
 
Missouri stayed in striking range as Clarkson made three of four free throws on Missouri's next two possessions. Then Hickey was fouled twice, and he sealed the win with his clutch foul shooting.
 
LSU led for most of the first half and built an 18-10 lead after Coleman made a 3-pointer with 12:31 remaining. Sparked by Brown's eight points, Missouri rallied to take its first lead at 29-26 with 5:26 left before halftime.
 
LSU regained the lead by outscoring Missouri 12-2 over the next five minutes. Stringer started the run with a 3-pointer, Mickey made two baskets and sank two foul shots, and Jarell Marting scored three points. Brown hit a field goal, but Missouri trailed 38-33 at the half.
 
Missouri seized momentum at the start of the second half. A 3-pointer by Clarkson and a layup by Brown tied the score at 38, then a bucket by Johnathan Williams put Missouri on top less than 90 seconds into the half.
 
Trailing by four for a third time, LSU's Mickey scored on an inside basket, then Stringer hit a trey for a 50-49 lead with 14:08 to play. Quarterman made a field goal and Coleman sank one of two foul shots to increase the lead to 53-49.
 
LSU extended its advantage to six points at 59-53 following field goals by O'Bryant and Coleman. But a three-point play by Ross cut Missouri's deficit in half with 8:33 remaining. LSU got the lead back to six points again on a field goal by Martin and a foul shot by Coleman.
 
Another three-point play — this one by Brown — again cut Missouri's deficit in half. Missouri then tied the score when Ross made one of two free throws and hit a layup following an LSU turnover. A driving basket by Coleman put LSU back ahead 64-62 with 4:05 remaining.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Mark Fayne and Ryan Carter scored 24 seconds apart early in the first period to spark the New Jersey Devils to a 7-1 win over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.
 
Jaromir Jagr, Ryane Clowe, Adam Henrique, Damien Brunner and Eric Gelinas added goals and the Devils celebrated a return to the snow-bound Prudential Center after losing three of four on the road. The seven goals were a season high, both ways. It was the biggest outburst by the Devils, and the most surrendered by the Blues.
 
Cory Schneider, 3-0-2 in his last five appearances, made 26 saves.
 
The game went on as scheduled despite a heavy snowstorm that held the crowd to an announced turnout of 2,000.
 
Alexander Steen scored for the Blues who sported two impressive marks coming in: they were 14-2-1 against Eastern Conference foes and 15-5-3 on the road.
 
None of that mattered as the Devils stunned the Blues with goals by Fayne and Carter only 2:51 in.
 
Fayne got it started with a high floater from the right point that eluded Brian Elliot at 2:27. It was the New Jersey defenseman's first goal in 25 games.
 
Carter followed 24 seconds later with a backhanded rebound.
 
Steen settled things momentarily for St. Louis with his career-high 25th goal to cut the Devils' lead to 2-1 at 8:47.
 
Jagr put New Jersey back up by two at 10:27 with his 697th career tally. The pass from Reid Boucher bounced off Jagr's left skate, and was affirmed by a video review.
 
Elliott was yanked about two minutes later, having surrendered three goals on nine shots. Jaroslav Halak came on in relief.
 
The first period ended with New Jersey up 3-1 thanks to a 13-6 shot advantage.
 
The Devils tacked on a pair of power-play tallies in the second, by Clowe at 1:03 and Henrique at 15:42, to expand the lead to 5-1.
 
Schneider, who had a relatively easy night, came up with perhaps his best stop midway through the middle period, denying David Backes when he was all alone in the slot.
 
In the third, Brunner added the Devils' third power-play tally at 1:18. Brunner was activated before the game from the injured reserve list after missing 14 games with a right knee injury.
 
Gelinas scored on a fluke, making it 7-1. He fired a shot from the red line that hit a Blues defender and bounced past Halak.
 
NOTES: Devils cleared roster space for Brunner by placing RW Cam Janssen on waivers. Janssen was assigned to Albany (AHL). ... The Blues remain in the New York area for games against the Rangers on Thursday and the Islanders on Saturday. ... Blues RW Vladimir Tarasenko missed a second straight game with the flu. ... The Devils invited fans in the top levels to "come on down" to the lower bowl to fill the available empty seats during a break in the first-period action. Fans also were offered a pair of tickets for an upcoming game. ... Henrique missed the third period with an undisclosed injury.
