How to use cut short in a sentence?

  1. Renee Alexander:

    It's heartbreaking for me to watch, over and over on TV, how his life was cut short on the street, just like a dog, they had no respect for him. No human being should die in the street like that - choked to death.

  2. Oregon State coach Scott Rueck:

    I dont think its up for discussion who No. 1 is. Louisville, Stanford, N.C. State, Mississippi State and UCLA rounded out the first 10 teams, which were unchanged from the previous poll. Before this season, South Carolina had never finished the season higher than No. 3. The Gamecocks topped the Top 25 the final 10 weeks of a season cut short before the NCAA Tournament by concerns about spreading the coronavirus pandemic. The AP has always released The AP final poll of the season before the start of the tournament that settles the national championship. Staley said she wasnt sure if The Gamecocks might recognize this achievement next year with a banner or something else since there was no tournament. I want to highlight our year. Only fitting for our seniors, only fitting for our team we put together, she said. Fitting to recognize what was accomplished this year for us. The Ducks, led by star Sabrina Ionescu, were ranked No. 1 for four weeks during the season. Their previous best finish in the poll was sixth two seasons ago. Its really neat. Going into the tournament we had the strongest resume and were playing really, really well, Ducks coach Kelly Graves said. UConns final ranking was its lowest since the team finished eighth in the last poll of the 2005-06 season. UConn had been four or higher every season since. Northwestern, which shared the regular-season Big Ten title, was 11th. Its the best finish for the Wildcats ever, topping their 13th-place ranking in 1990. Its only the sixth time in school history the team was ranked in the final poll. Its been a wild ride, Northwestern coach Joe McKeown said. Weve had so many people enjoy watching the program this year and see it grow. Im sad we didnt get a chance to play in the NCAA Tournament, but we have a great young group. CONFERENCE DOMINANCE The Pac-12 has been the top conference in the poll all season and finished with three teams in the first 10 and six in the Top 25. I feel like we have been doing that for a while now. I think back to four years ago, I think the conference statistically might have been a little stronger throughout that year, 2017.

  3. Shane Fitzsimmons:

    Each one of those is a story of grief, of profound loss, and great sadness, of lives cut short, and of families being changed forever.

  4. Vladimir Putin:

    We are talking about hundreds of militants there, thousands when it comes to CIS countries. This is a real threat to us. How and where will they head ? we need to understand this and mobilize the resources of our special services to cut short this emerging new threat.

  5. Asa Hutchinson:

    While the death penalty is unacceptable in any case, the judicial process should not be cut short for something as trivial as an expiration date when the stakes are so high. in order to fulfill my duty as Governor, which is to carry out these lawful sentences imposed by juries and upheld by the Arkansas Supreme Court, it is necessary to schedule the executions prior to the expiration of that drug.
