Locals expound more on impact Tony Hsieh had on Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Las Vegans are still in shock and reeling over the passing of entrepreneur and Las Vegas resident Tony Hsieh. Several local business owners spoke with 8 News Now Monday night about their experiences with Hsieh and all that he did for the city's downtown area.

However, one man took it a step further and created a petition on Change.Org. His mission is to rename part of 6th Street as Tony Hsieh way. The man, Johnny Moscow, a former Las Vegas local who now lives in Honolulu, Hawaii, heard about the news of Hsieh's passing and he said that is when he knew he had to do something.

"I saw the impact he made on not just our city, and the first thing that hit me was the impact he had on my close family and friends," Moscow said. "I wanted to keep his legacy going because there is going to be a time where everybody starts rebuilding down there, and everybody forgets."... Read More

Rebels fall to #14 North Carolina in Maui Invitational opener

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina started its first game of the relocated Maui Invitational so badly that it faced an immediate double-digit hole as its Hall of Fame coach benched multiple starters.

The 14th-ranked Tar Heels offered up a confidence-building response to those early troubles.

Freshman RJ Davis scored 16 points to help UNC beat UNLV 78-51 in Monday night's first round. After falling behind 13-0, the Tar Heels used a big run spanning halftime and a dominating effort on the glass to advance.

“I told them at the first timeout I wasn’t worried about the score,” coach Roy Williams said. “I was just worried about how we were playing."

Garrison Brooks added 14 points and surpassed the 1,000-point mark for his career in the first half for the Tar Heels (2-0), who didn't score for the first 6 1/2 minutes. But UNC closed the gap, then went on a 28-4 run for its own big lead... Read More

Raiders lose to Falcons; Carr has worst game as pro football player

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- The Raiders are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Atlanta Falcons. To sum it up, the Raiders got destroyed by the Falcons, and much of it was their own doing.

In the NFL, when a player turns the ball over five times and commits over 140 yards in penalties, it will end up bad for the team, and that's what happened to the Raiders. Derek Carr had his worst game as a pro football player. He turned the ball over a few times, even throwing a pick-six.

8 News NOW was at the news conference after the game, and some of the guys didn't have great practices that week. Coach Jon Gruden said he didn't notice much change leading into Sunday's game... Read More
