EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Oakland Raiders Jerseys . -- The defense that was so dominant during Minnesotas 5-0 start has morphed into a rather ordinary unit.Opponents have since adjusted with quick passes and well-timed play calls to neutralize what has been a relentless rush, the turnovers havent come as often and the Vikings have been more susceptible to those confidence-sapping third-down conversions.Just as much of a factor in the recent rut, though, could be the seemingly illogical problem of players trying too hard to help stop the slide.When youre struggling and youve got a bunch of really good guys, guys that really care, guys tend to try to do a little too much, including myself, coach Mike Zimmer said.Instead of allowing guys to make plays, you try to make plays for them. We just need to settle down. We need to do what we do. Get back to being the Vikings defense again.Washingtons Kirk Cousins averaged around 2+ seconds to release the ball when he dropped back to pass last week, when the Vikings (5-4) lost their fourth straight game . Detroits Matthew Stafford and Chicagos Jay Cutler followed similar quick-throwing strategies in the games before that.Were going to have to adjust how we do some things with the pass rush, Zimmer said.The Vikings have only three sacks over the past four games. Not coincidentally, each of the past three opponents have converted exactly half of their third downs.If you look at the tape, theyre getting the ball out quick. Theyre running boots. Theyre running screens. Theyre doing all the things to slow us down in the rush, defensive end Everson Griffen said.We cant get frustrated. Weve just got to get out there and keep rushing. Sacks come in bunches. Do we want more sacks? Yeah, but Id rather have wins than sacks.Missed tackles have a problem, too, none more costly than in overtime against the Lions when cornerback Xavier Rhodes and safety Harrison Smith both whiffed during Golden Tates winning touchdown reception .The Arizona Cardinals (4-4-1) will bring plenty of challenges for the Vikings to U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, with running back David Johnson chief among them.Still, its worth remembering that the Vikings defense, despite the lag of late, remains a daunting matchup for opponents, too. The Cardinals were raving this week about Zimmer and his scheme.Hes one of the best defensive play-callers in the game, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said. Hes just got a wealth of knowledge. He does a great job of trying to break down opponents and trying to neutralize the things that they do well, and you couple that with an unbelievable amount of talent.After missing nickel cornerback Captain Munnerlyn against the Redskins because of an ankle injury, the Vikings should be back to full strength in the secondary.It definitely was a tough, tough situation for me to watch the game, Munnerlyn said. I kind of got mad here and there, probably kicked some boxes or something, punched a box here and there.---For more NFL coverage: and . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break. . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week. RIO DE JANEIRO -- David Rudisha glanced to his left twice as he came round the final bend, waiting for the challenge to come. It didnt. He didnt let it.The world-record holder surged across the line to retain his Olympic title in the 800 meters on Monday, giving no one else a chance and becoming the first man in more than half a century to win back-to-back golds over two laps at the games.This is one of my greatest moments, to come here and defend my title, Rudisha said. There is nothing as great for an athlete as to maintain his performance.Rudisha won in 1 minute, 42.15 seconds, nothing on the incredible 1:40.91 he produced for his wire-to-wire win in London four years ago. But this was always going to be about the medal and not the clock, especially after a heavy downpour earlier in the evening left Rudisha and the others with a damp track at the Olympic Stadium. If theres one thing the Kenyan hates, its running in the wet.Rudisha still won well from Algerias Taoufik Makhloufi, who ran a national record time of 1:42.61 to add an 800 silver here to his gold in the 1,500 at the last Olympics. Clayton Murphy powered through in the final 50 meters for bronze and a PB of 1:42.93, overhauling Frances Pierre-Ambroise Bosse on his way to a long-awaited podium finish for the U.S. It was the first medal in the 800 for an American since Johnny Gray in 1992.Super exciting to race him, Murphy said of Rudisha, and hopefully not the last time I get to race him.Rudisha smiled at the end, a broad, beaming smile, relieved maybe after what started as a trying season when he lost a couple of times in the Diamond League and was beaten into third -- third! -- at the Kenyan trials. He freely offered up hugs to the other medalists, too, as he draped the red, black and green Kenyan flag across his shoulders once again.His legacy as one of the greatest 800 runners was pretty firm already, but he cemented it in Rio de Janeiro: The 27-year-old Rudisha has now won four of the last five major titles and the oonly one missing -- the 2013 worlds -- he was injured for. With no strong challenger coming at him -- not in this race and not in any general sense, either -- Rudisha has the potential to make history with a third straight gold in four years in Tokyo.He wants to be the best, he is the best at it, he knows hes the best, said American Boris Berian, who was eighth. Its that confidence right there. He takes it out and he has that confidence to hold on.Rudishas teammate, Alfred Kipketer, set a fast pace from the start -- like a bullet, Rudisha said -- and the defending champion had to hold himself back from getting into an early scrap. Instead, Rudisha waited for the back straight to stretch out his long legs and move past Kipketer. He built a cushion, not a big one, but he never seemed likely to get caught. Those two quick looks to the left as he approached the home straight let him know that he had it.Richard Snell of New Zealand was the last man to retain his Olympic title in the 800, at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. Some formidable recent 800 runners, including current IAAF President Sebastian Coe and Wilson Kipketer, didnt even win once in the 800 at the Olympics. Coe, an Olympic champion at 1,500, consistently says that Rudisha is one of the best athletes the sport has had.For Rudisha, this victory was absolute confirmation, if he needed it, that hes deserving of such praise from former champions. Rudisha himself could be confirmation, his country really does need it, that Kenyas distance-running culture of grass-roots talent and hard work is not being taken over by doping.The Olympics comes only every four years, Rudisha said. It means you have to be very disciplined, dedicated, focused and do the right thing to get here.---Follow Gerald Imray on Twitter at the Rio Games at White NFL Jerseys Cheap Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Jerseys NFL China NFL T-shirts From China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys China ' ' '

BELFAST -- Ronnie OSullivan came through a rare showdown with Jimmy White to book his place in the third round of the Northern Ireland Open. .The 54-year-old White, who has slipped to 108 in the world rankings, was facing OSullivan in the final stages of a ranking event for the first time in six years.Veteran White hinted at an upset by taking a scrappy opening frame before OSullivan hit back with a 141 clearance to level the scores.With both players struggling to find top form OSullivan added two more frames before wrapping up a 4-1 victory with a break of 95.Earlier, John Higgins scored the eighth 147 break of his career as he also booked his place in round three in Belfast.The 41-year-old achieved the feat in the final frame of his 4-1 win over Sam Craigie, setting up the maximum with a brilliant cross-double on the final red.Higgins is looking to claim his third consecutive ranking event title after recent wins at the China Championship and last weeks Champion of Champions event in Coventry.He is the fifth player to hit a 147 on the tour so far this year after Thepchaiya Un-Nooh, Stephen Maguire, Shaun Murphy and Alfie Burden.Mark Allen, Kyren Wilson and Barry Hawkins were among the other winners on Wednesday, but world semi-finalist Alan McManus was beaten 4-0 by world number 93 Sanderson Lam. . It was the second consecutive win for the Pacers (2-5), who lost their first five preseason games. Jeff Teague led the Hawks (1-5) with 17 points and eight assists and Al Horford had 12 points and seven rebounds. Mike Scott scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half. . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. LOS ANGELES -- There was no text message that specifically gave Derrick Rose permission to have sex with his ex-girlfriend, but for the NBA star the signs were clear, he testified Friday in a lawsuit that accuses him and two friends of raping the woman.It started with a morning text message from the woman saying Rose was the reason she wakes up horny, including a photo of herself in her nightshirt and continued with other texts about sex throughout the day.Rose said he surmised that the horny text had triggered consent from that point on, and that was only reinforced for him by their sexual history, sex acts she engaged in with him and his personal assistant that night at his house and an invite hours later to her apartment.I was assuming that all of us going over there that she wanted to have sex with all of us, Rose testified in a matter-a-fact demeanor.His description of the incident differed dramatically from the womans testimony, which lasted a day and a half in Los Angeles federal court.The 30-year-old woman denied having sex earlier in the evening at Roses Beverly Hills mansion, though her testimony was clouded by her claims that she blacked out and could only piece together the evening through short flashes of memory and by reviewing a flurry of text messages she apparently was able to send despite being drunk and, possibly, drugged.At the end of testimony, Roses lawyer asked a judge to declare a mistrial because of a profane text message that he said the womans lawyers had failed to reveal until Friday.The judge said he would take the issue up Tuesday morning before the Knicks point guard is scheduled to resume testimony. The judge ordered Rose to return to the stand even if it means missing a preseason game the night before in New York.Rose, 28, was called to the stand by the plaintiffs lawyer as a hostile witness to help make the plaintiffs case that the woman never gave consent to have sex with him and his longtime friends and assistants, Randall Hampton and Ryan Allen.Consent is the main issue for the jury of six women and two men. The men, all friends since adolescence in Chicago, have denied the allegations and said the woman consented.The Associated Press is not naming the woman because it generally does not identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault. .Rose said the only time the woman said, Stop was after she let them in her apartment and they all headed for the bedroom together.She told us, `One at a time, he said. He and Hampton waited on the sofa while Allen was inside.The woman testified she never let the men in her place and remembers waking to see them all in her bedroom. She recalled Allen on top of her at one point and, at another, Rose pulling her to the side of the bed as she tried to roll off.Rose said he never received any text from the woman telling him she wanted to have sex with him and the two others. But he had assumed from what had transpired and the fact she had never told him no.In my mind, she consented every time we had sex, he said. Why wouldnt she do it that time?Attorney Waukeen McCoy suggested Rose had no remorse about the night.Im sensitive to it, Rose replied, but added, I feel I didnt do anything wrong.Rose hadnt seen the woman since breaking up months earlier, but invited her over for drinks that night. She came with a friend and after a shot or two of tequila she became sexually aggressive, which turned him off.Rose retreated to his room, where he rebuffed further advances until a friend removed her from the room.About 20 minutes later, he said he walked outside and saw Hampton having sex with her by the side of the pool, and she pulled Rose over to join them, though he broke away and returned to his room.Rose said the woman was acting a bit abnormally, but he didnt think she was drunk.Rose said he once had feelings for the woman and thought they had a bond. He was once asked if he thought she was after his money.Not at that time, he said.Defense lawyers have described her as a gold digger and suggested she had sued for money.She denied that saying: I didnt wish him any harm, I wanted him to be accountable.The woman didnt report the incident to police until she filed suit more than two years later. Los Angeles police still have an open investigation.

HOUSTON -- The Houston Rockets were determined to make up for losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in their season opener. Brandon Finnegan Jersey . It was clear from the beginning Wednesday night that things would be different this time around.Eric Gordon made a career-high eight 3-pointers and scored 26 points to help the Rockets cruise to a 134-95 victory.James Harden added 25 points in three quarters. The Rockets scored a season high and extended their winning streak to a season-best four games.They have a lot of good road wins and for us that first game we played this season we lost so we wanted a get-back game, Harden said.The Rockets were up by 12 in the third quarter, then had a 22-6 run to make it 96-68 and put the game out of reach with about 3 minutes left in the quarter. Houston made four 3-pointers and got a nifty one-handed dunk from Clint Capela in that run to pad the lead.Gordon already had four 3-pointers 7 minutes into the first quarter after making each of his first four attempts. It was his seventh straight game with at least four 3-pointers, which is a franchise record.Im just settling in on my role and my role is definitely to bring a different energy and scoring, playmaking with the second unit, he said. Im settling in and its getting better and better. Teammates look for me and its just up to me to knock down shots.Houston has its longest winning streak since taking five straight in January.Lou Williams led the Lakers with 24 points. They have lost four in a row, their longest skid of the season.We just didnt play well, he said. It was just one of those nights where we didnt respond to anything that was going on.The Rockets led by 18 after a layup by Gordon to start the second quarter. It was the only shot he made that wasnt a 3-pointer. The Lakers got going after that, using a 17-6 run to cut the lead to 51-44 about five minutes before halftime. Brandon Ingram made two 3-pointers in that stretch and Jordan Clarkson capped the run with a 3.Houston got back on track after that and had pushed the lead to 67-52 with 1.4 second left in the half. Lou Williams cut the deficit after that when he hit a 3-pointer from beyond half court at the buzzer.TIP-INSLakers: Coach Luke Walton said DAngelo Russell (sore left knee) is getting better but he isnt sure when hell return. ... Williams scored more than 20 points for the ninth time this season. ... Julius Randle added 21 points and 10 rebounds.Rockets: Scored a season-high 43 points in the first quarter. ... Made 15 3-pointers to extend their NBA record of games with at least 10 3s to 21. ... Gordon has scored at least 20 points in four of the last six games. ... The Rockets had 67 points at halftime and have scored at least 60 points in the first half in five of their last seven games. ... Harden had eight assists, six rebounds and four steals.SO CLOSEHoustons Patrick Beverley came three rebounds shy of his first career triple-double, finishing with 10 points, seven rebounds and tying a career high with 12 assists. Coach Mike DAntoni said he kept him in a little longer than the other starters to give him a shot to get it.Harden joked about the 6-foot-1 Beverleys inability to get those last rebounds.I wanted him to get a triple-double so bad, Harden said. Every rebound he tried to get he couldnt get it because hes so small.NO EXCUSESWalton wouldnt make excuses for this lopsided loss despite the Lakers playing without Russell and Nick Young, who is also out with an injury.Obviously, we are missing key players and we are going to lose games, but if were just sitting around as a team saying were waiting for this guy or that, thats not the mindset you want ... thats not an acceptable excuse, he said.UP NEXTLakers: Host Phoenix on Friday nightRockets: Visit Oklahoma City on Friday night. Ken Griffey Jersey . The incident occurred at 19:56 of the second period of the Kings 4-2 road win over Edmonton on Sunday. Nolan punched Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu in the jaw in front of the Kings goal during a scrum. Tom Seaver Jersey . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. . Siddikur, whose previous win on the circuit came in Brunei three years ago, finished his bogey-free round with a birdie on the 18th for a total of 17-under 199. Indias Shiv Chowrasia, who has finished runner-up in this tournament twice, was in second place after a 66. Ray Rice still hopes to return to the NFL, though he says hes running out of time.Rice has not played in the league since being suspended at the start of the 2014 season for domestic violence. He told on Thursday he knows he might not get another opportunity.I dont want to ever say Im giving up, because thats never going to be me, Rice said before playing in a charity softball game. Im happy. Im in the best shape of my life, and I know if it doesnt happen this year, its probably something I have to deal with. But you know what? Its not the end of my life.I know that the window for playing is closing. But if my window closes, Im going to make sure I open up a thousand more opportunities for kids, to give them an opportunity to pick up where I left off. Thatts where Im at. Cincinnati Reds Jerseys. Ive got three Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl. Theres a lot of people that cant go out there and do what I did. But I dont want it to end that way, its safe to say.Rice was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in September 2014 and was released by the Baltimore Ravens when a video surfaced of him punching his then-fiancée in an elevator. His suspension was later overturned by a neutral arbitrator, but he hasnt signed with another team.Rice, 29, played six seasons for Baltimore.

Mark Warburton is delighted to have sealed promotion to the Scottish Premiership, but the Rangers manager insists the job is far from over. Ozzie Guillen Jersey . The Light Blues secured the Championship title with a 1-0 win over Dumbarton on Tuesday, thanks to right-back James Taverniers 13th goal of the season.It ended four years of lower-league football for the club, following their demotion to the Third Division after financial collapse during the 2011-12 season. The result meant that Rangers completed their seasons objective of a top-tier return in Warburtons first year in charge.Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports News HQ, the Rangers boss says that the job is not yet complete, as he looks to make an impact next season. Rangers Andy Halliday celebrates with the fans at full-time after winning the Championship title Promotion was a must - a club like this, a club of this stature has to be back in the top tier. We didnt want to limp over the line, I wanted to do it in style to gain momentum for the start of next season, said the former city trader.Its very, very pleasing to get the job done and we can now move on from here. Its important that we keep the momentum going for next season, because theres no point in thinking thats it, and the job is done.Work [for next season] started a number of weeks ago. Weve had meetings and targets have been highlighted. If we get the recruitment right, then we will be in a good place. Its important that we keep the momentum going for next season, because theres no point in thinking thats it, and the job is done. Mark Warburton, Rangers manager Rangers have already been installed as the bookmakers second-favourites to win the Premiership title next season, behind rivals Celtic who are odds-on.And former Brentford manager Warburton believes meeting those expectations is a must next season.It just sharpens the focus. I was told on my second day here that if we played Barcelona at Ibrox tomorrow, the fans might accept a draw, but would probably accept a win. Thats the expectation of the crowd here - we have to respect it, understand it and appreciate it. The players have to relish that responsibility and focus on the job at hand. If we can have more highs than lows, well be okay.Before Warburton can think of the next campaign, he has to focus on Sundays Petrofac Training Cup final against Peterhead, followed by the Scottish Cup semi-final clash with Celtic. Warburton (left) and former Rangers captain David Weir have led Rangers to Scottish Championship success Its important to enjoy the good moments, but we must remember that we have a very important cup final at a packed Hampden on Sunday.Then weve got a week to prepare for Celtic.

The Dragons will face a huge task in the semi-finals with an away game at high-flying, Montpellier, but a late try from Charlie Davies to add to five penalties from Dorian Jones and one from Carl Meyer sent the holders out of the competition.Stevie McColl and Ben Morgan scored tries for Gloucester with Greig Laidlaw kicking three penalties and a conversion and the defeat virtually guarantees that Gloucester will not qualify for the European Champions Cup next season. Dragons made a poor start as their kick-off went straight into touch but they recovered to take a ninth-minute lead with a penalty from Jones.Despite this setback, the home side dominated the opening quarter as they declined to take kickable penalties in favour of more attacking options to test the Dragons defence.After 13 minutes, they were rewarded when a neat off-load from Matt Kvesic created the space for Morgan to gallop 20 metres to score the opening try.Laidlaw missed the conversion before an excellent burst from Taulupe Faletau took the visitors in the opposition 22 and when Gloucester were penalised, a second penalty from Jones put Dragons back in front.However that score was against the run of play as the hosts continued to dominate and a penalty from Laidlaw put his side 8-6 ahead at the end of the first quarter.Dragonns soon suffered two further blows when first scrum-half Sarel Pretorius was yellow-carded for a dangerous challenge before Laidlaw kicked his second penalty. Early Wynn Jersey. Jones had two chances to reduce the arrears but they were not taken as a long-range penalty attempt went badly astray before a much easier kick rebounded back off a post.Despite being down to 14 men, Dragons had their best period of the half and deservedly picked up some points when Jones kicked his third penalty.Pretorius returned from the sin-bin as Dragons maintained their momentum for the remainder of the half. Gloucester captain Laidlaw was yellow-carded for playing the ball after being tackled, with Jones kicking the resulting penalty for Dragons to hold a 12-11 interval lead.Four minutes after the restart, Dragons extended that advantage with a fifth penalty from Jones before Laidlaw was able to return in time to see Meyer fire over a superb kick from inside his own half.With 18 minutes remaining, Gloucester drew level when James Hook chipped through and when Pretorius was unable to gather, McColl was on hand to collect and score the try, which Laidlaw converted.Jones missed a golden opportunity to put Dragons back in front but his 30-metre drop goal attempt sailed wide before Laidlaw gave Gloucester the lead.But with four minutes remaining, Dragons scored the decisive try when Davies finished off a driving line-out to send the holders out of the competition.

NEW YORK -- Nearly 500 baseball artifacts including a Shoeless Joe Jackson game bat and material from the Negro Leagues will be auctioned off by Christies this fall in New York.The items come from the National Pastime Museum, an online museum based on a private collection of baseball artifacts, photographs and memorabilia.Shoeless Joes Black Betsy bat is one of only two known to survive from his career, and the only one with his full signature in script stamped into the barrel, according to Christies. It has the scars of game use, including ball and cleat marks and a handle crack.

The 2016 class of Eric Lindros, Sergei Makarov, Rogie Vachon and Pat Quinn were elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame Monday night in Toronto, so were turning our attention to next years inductions. . In addition to obvious candidates Dave Andreychuk and Paul Kariya, here are three other players who should be considered for the class of 2017 in this, a special edition of Morning, Joe.Teemu Selanne: Selanne, 46, will be in his first year of eligibility and the Finnish Flash should be a no-brainer. After 21 seasons in the NHL with the Winnipeg Jets (1992-96), Anaheim Ducks (1996-2001, 2005-14), San Jose Sharks (2001-03) and the Colorado Avalanche (2003-04), he is 15th on the all-time scoring list with 684 goals, 773 assists for 1,457 points in 1,451 games, which is incredible. Hes the last player to score 70 goals in a season, a feat he accomplished with 76 goals as a rookie with the Jets. He won the Calder Trophy (1992-93), Maurice Richard Trophy (1998-99) and the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy (2005-06). Oh, and he also won that thing called the Stanley Cup, with the Ducks in 2007. His international résumé speaks for itself as well: He won an Olympic silver medal and three bronze medals playing for Finland, not to mention inspiring scores of players to take up the game.Mark Recchi: Its inconceivable that Recchi, 48, is not already in the Hall of Fame. He won three Stanley Cups as a player with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Carolina Hurricanes and Boston Bruins. He also earned another in a management role with the Penguins last season. As a player, he recorded 1,533 points in 1,652 games, which is 12th all-time. Recchi made a difference both on and off the ice, no matter where he played during his 22-year career: with the Penguins (1988-92, 2005-06, 2008-09), Philadelphia Flyers (1991-95, 1998-2004), Montreal Canadiens (1994-99), Hurricanes (2005-06), Atlanta Thrashers (2007-08), Tampa Bay Lightning (2008-09) and the Bruins?(2009-11). He officially retired while celebrating on the ice with his Bruins teammates after defeating the Vancouver Canucks in 2011. Its about time Recchi is inducted.Daniel Alfredsson: Alfredsson, 42, is also in his first year of eligibility and should receive serious consideration. He spent 18 seasons with the Ottawa Senators (1995-2013) and one with the Detroit Red Wings (2013-14) and recorded 10 seasons of 70-plus points. A six-time All-Star, Alfredsson never won a Stanley Cup, which could hurt his chances to start, but he will one day earn enshrinement. He won the Calder Trophy (1995-96) and the King Clancy Memorial Award (2011-12). Internationally for Team Sweden, he won an Olympic gold medal in 2006 and a silver medal in 2014. He is one of the most respected leaders of his generation. . Bradwell was scheduled to become a free agent Tuesday.

Nelford was seriously injured in a water-skiing accident in 1985 when a boats propeller sliced one of his arms. Although he recovered, he was never able to regain his top golfing form and eventually lost his spot on the PGA Tour. "After I had my accident, the doctors told me I would never play the game again and I would have half a right arm," said Nelford, before being inducted into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame on Friday. "When I was recovering, part of my recovery was trying to think positively, trying to think as positively as I could, but I had many dreams about coming back to play at the Abbey. "If I could just come back and play the Abbey one more time and get in contention one more time, that was my dream, and it was a recurring dream." The Vancouver native missed the cut at the 1986 Canadian Open but finished in a tie for 18th the next year. "The first time I came back after the accident, it was too soon. It was too soon for me to be back on Tour," said Nelford. "The first six months I didnt make a cut, but the PGA Tour basically forced me to take my year as per medical extension. I didnt make a cut for six months, missing by a shot, missing by two shots, but I started to play a little bit better on the weekend. " Nelford was joined in the hall by amateur Alison Murdoch and Jack McLaughlin, honoured posthumously in the builder category. Nelford won the Canadian amateur championship in 1975 and 1976. He turned pro in 1977, and played on the PGA Tour from 1978 to 1988, where his best finish was second at the 1983 Sea Pines Heritage Classic and at the 1984 Bing Crosby Pro-Am where he lost in a playoff with Hale Irwin. The memories of the support of the fans at the Canadian Open have always stuck with Nelford, making the Jack Nicklaus-designed course a natural choice for his induction speech. "Glen Abbey meant so much to me, and being able to play here and compete here and compete well at times and go through the gamut, the missing the cuts and how much it breaks your heart, and you dont know what to do," said Nelford. "You dont know whether to leave town, you dont know whether to sit in your room and cry. It meant so much every time. "And all the friends that Ive made being here and playing in front of people, this was just the spot, and at the Canadian Open this was the spot."

The Calgary Stampeders will be without the services of defensive lineman Corey Mace for the rest of the season after he suffered a torn labrum. . Last season, Mace led all Stampeders interior linemen with 25 tackles. The Stampeders acquired Maces rights in a trade with the Toronto Argonauts in 2010, in exchange for linebacker Tristan Black. Non-import Junior Turner was listed behind Mace on the Stampeders depth chart in Week 1. . Ronaldo produced a spectacular individual performance on Tuesday, scoring all three goals and guiding Portugal into the next years World Cup in Brazil with a 3-2 victory in Sweden. The Real Madrid forward has scored 66 goals in 2013, but the last three may be the boost he needs to upstage Messi after FIFA unexpectedly extended the voting period for the Ballon dOr to Nov. . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. . From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. The U.S. Supreme Court will not hear the NCAAs appeal of the Ed OBannon case, leaving in place lower court rulings that found amateurism rules for big-time college sports violated federal antitrust law but prohibited payments to student-athletes.The justices on Monday rejected the appeal in a class-action lawsuit originally filed by OBannon, a former UCLA basketball star, and later joined by other athletes. The court also rejected OBannons appeal that called on the justices to reinstate a plan for schools to pay football and basketball players for the uses of their names, images and likenesses.It means the status quo has been preserved for a while longer, antitrust attorney Robert Boland said.The effect of the high court action is to leave the NCAA vulnerable to more legal challenges that are working their way through the courts, but it also gives the association time to make changes to blunt those possible threats.While we are disappointed with this decision not to review this case, we remain pleased that the 9th Circuit agreed with us that amateurism is an essential component of college sports and that NCAA members should not be forced by the courts to provide benefits untethered to education, including providing any payments beyond the full cost of attendance, NCAA chief legal officer Donald Remy said in a statement.Ramogi Huma, executive director of the National College Players Association, said he was encouraged by the Supreme Courts decision.The NCAA was found guilty of illegal price-fixing in two courts, and the Supreme Court is allowing those rulings to stand, Huma said. This makes clear that the NCAA is not above the law and that college athletes deserve equal protection under the law.In 2014, a U.S. district judge decided that the NCAAs use of names, images and likenesses of college athletes without compensation violated antitrust law. Judge Claudia Wilken ruled schools could -- but were not required to -- pay football and mens basketball players up to $5,000 per year. The money would go into a trust and be available to the athletes after leaving college. Wilken also ruled schools could increase the value of the athletic scholarship to meet the federal cost of attendance figure for each institution.The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year overturned Wilkens ruling on the paymeents of $5,000 but upheld the antitrust violation. While we would have liked the Supreme Courts review, we remain pleased with our trial victory and the 9th Circuits decision upholding the finding that the NCAA violated the antitrust laws and affirming a permanent injunction to remedy that violation, which enables NCAA member schools to offer college athletes significant additional funds toward the cost of attendance, Michael Hausfeld, lead attorney in the OBannon case, said in a statement.The NCAA already has addressed one aspect of Wilkens ruling by increasing the amount of aid schools may provide athletes. In 2015, the NCAA passed legislation allowing schools to increase the value of an athletic scholarship to include each institutions federally regulated cost-of-attendance figures. The cost of attendance includes estimated values for things such as travel between campus and home, clothing and food.Two cases currently in lower courts present potential threats to the NCAAs amateurism model and its desire to restrict compensation to athletes in ways that would be more akin to an employer-employee relationship.A case led by antitrust lawyer Jeffrey Kessler and originally filed by former Clemson football player Martin Jenkins and another claim first filed by former West Virginia player Shawne Alston but now consolidated with other cases challenge the NCAAs right to cap compensation for athletes at the value of a scholarship.I believe Jenkins v. NCAA will be successful in securing important resources for players, Huma said.The Alston case also seeks damages for athletes who played college sports before the scholarship was increased to include cost of attendance.These other cases, though, are nowhere near a resolution, and time is on the NCAAs side.To some degree you could say thats a strategy for the NCAA and in the interests that are in charge of college sports, said Boland, who is director of the masters of sports administration program at Ohio University. That they maintain the status quo despite litigation is both a practical reality but also an opportunity for them to begin to reform in a way thats effective.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

TROON, Scotland -- Perks come with being a major winner, as Danny Willett is discovering. Tim Hardaway Jersey .Take last week, for example. The Masters champion started it in the Royal Box at Wimbledon watching Andy Murray and Roger Federer play, and ended it as a special guest at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. On Monday of British Open week, Willett was shooting penalty kicks at a soccer stadium near Royal Troon.Now its time for Willett to focus on his day job.Since his win at Augusta National in April, Willett has played five events and had one top-10 finish -- a third place at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. He has missed the cut in his last two tournaments, the BMW International Open in Germany and the French Open.Two days before the British Open, Willett said he has had a brutally honest conversation with himself as he looks to rediscover his form.You got to go back to basics and realize what got you there in the first place, Willett said. Are you working out enough? Have you been putting enough time in? Have you been dedicating yourself properly? Weve had a couple moments in the last month or so where were trying to get back on track now, getting back up and working as hard and for longer hours than what we have done in previous months, previous years.Not that he regrets getting out of the golf bubble from time to time, as he did Monday when he attended a promotional event that involved taking penalties and hitting balls from the stands at Ibrox -- the home of Scottish soccer club Rangers.Willett particularly enjoys mixing with other sports stars, finding out what makes them tick and how they handle competing at the top of their profession.Being in that environment, I think it puts a different spin on our sport and what we do and how hard we work, Willett said. We get caught up in our own little bubbles at time. As golfers we travel the world and play week to week, traveling together, and very rarely do you get to see other people around in their working environment.A former top-ranked amateur, Willett was always destined for the top in golf and he had his first real taste of going close at a major at the British Open last year at St. Andrews. Willett was second after two rounds after shooting 66 and 69 and then played the final round with Zach Johnson, who went on to lift the claret jug after a playoff.It was good to be able to see that first-hand and see how he handled the pressure, Willett said. Just seeing how it unfolded and how he played was good for me and a learning experience.Willett took that experience to Augusta this year, holding himself together after Jordan Spieth hit two balls into the water at No. 12 to become an unlikely winner of the Masters. Now he finds himself at the center of attention wherever he goes and the crowds are sure to be following him at Troon.The 28-year-old Englishman said he spent two or three days in bed last week because of illness, but will be 100 percent by the first round Thursday.Being British, Willett said, this is one you want to get your hands on.

RENTON, Wash. -- Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas will miss the first start of his professional career Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Thomas was ruled out Friday due to a hamstring strain suffered during last weeks victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Thomas has started 106 straight regular-season games and 12 playoff games without missing a game due to injury.Steven Terrell is expected to start in Thomas place against Tampa Bay. It will be his first career start.Center Justin Britt is expected to be a game-time decision. Britt sprained his ankle last week against Philadelphia and was unable to practice all week. Britt will be in unifoorm Sunday and at least available as a backup, but rookie Joey Hunt would get the start if Britt is unable to play. Edrice Adebayo Jersey. Also ruled out for Seattle were running backs C.J. Prosise (shoulder blade) and Troymaine Pope (ankle), and defensive end Michael Bennett (knee). Linebacker Brock Coyle (foot) is doubtful. Cornerback DeShawn Shead (hamstring), receiver Tanner McEvoy (toe) and defensive end Damontre Moore (foot) are questionable.---For more NFL coverage: and White NFL Jerseys Cheap Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Jerseys NFL China NFL T-shirts From China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys China ' ' '

DURHAM, N. Logan Thomas Jersey .H. -- Jaleen Smith had a triple-double with 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists as New Hampshire opened the season with an 85-60 win over Division III Lesley University on Friday.Tanner Leissner added 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Wildcats. Daniel Dion scored 15 points and Jordan Reed 13.New Hampshire took control early, scoring the first 10 points of the game and leading 47-17 at the half. The Wildcats limited the Lynx to 36 percent shooting and forced 12 turnovers while shooting 51 percent, including 8 of 16 from 3-point range.The Wildcats finished 30 of 59 from the field with 11 3s and had a 44-26 rebounding advantage. Reed and freshman Kijana Love both hit three from beyond the arc.LaMarr Mitchell had 18 points and Devon Mayo 10 for the Lynx. Stephen Hauschka Jersey . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. John Miller Jersey . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. .Y. - New Orleans forward Anthony Davis was chosen Friday to replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star game that will be played in his home city.Lyle Taylor and Adebayo Akinfenwa fired AFC Wimbledon into Sky Bet League One for the first time as they beat Plymouth 2-0 in the League Two play-off final at Wembley. Fourteen years after the original Wimbledon was moved to Milton Keynes, Neal Ardleys men booked their place in Englands third highest league, setting up a meeting with rivals MK Dons and completing a remarkable rise from their ninth-tier start in 2002.In a game that produced few chances, it took until the 78th minute for Taylor to make the breakthrough as he slotted the ball past Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick. Adebayo Akinfenwa sealed Wimbledons promotion to League 1 with a penalty in stoppage time With several minutes of injury time added on, Wimbledon were awarded a penalty with almost the final kick of the game which Akinfenwa powered home after a heated discussion with regular penalty taker Callum Kennedy.It was Wimbledon who went closest in the opening exchanges, and it came from a free-kick as the ball was lofted into the back post with Taylor waiting eight yards out, but he couldnt get the touch to take it past McCormick. AFC Wimbledon have been promoted to League 1 after beating Plymouth 2-0 And while Plymouth had seen the better of the ball, it was the Dons who continued to create the better chances and did so twice in quick succession with McCormick again smothering the danger from Taylor before Paul Robinson just hit wide after Tom Elliott headed into his path.The Pilgrims could only muster half-chances during the first 45 minutes as Jake Jervis tried to get a shot away but could only see it blocked by Darius Charles. The defender was there again to keep out a fine cross from Gregg Wylde that was seeking out the quiet Jamille Matt. AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley praised his team’s performance after they secured promotion McCormick was certainly the busier of the two goalkeepers and was called into action again six minutes before the break as Kennedy found some space around 30 yards out and rifled an effort towards goal - but the goalkeeper held strongly. Ramon Humber Jersey. Wimbledon came racing out of the traps in the second half and could have had a fortuitous early goal as Plymouth defender Carl McHugh sent a looping pass back to his goalkeeper that nearly went into the bottom corner, before Elliott twice headed wide as the Dons searched to break the deadlock. Lyle Taylor (right) scores AFC Wimbledons first goal of the game Plymouths best chances of the game came just after the hour mark and both from free-kicks. Graham Carey delivered the set-pieces, seeing his first saved by Kelle Roos before Peter Harley nodded the second into the ground and ultimately into the safe hands of the Dons stopper.Wimbledon made the breakthrough 12 minutes from time and it was semi-final extra-time goalscorer Taylor who got onto the end of a delightful Kennedy cross, flicking it into the bottom corner and sending the Dons fans into raptures, whipping off his shirt in the celebrations. Taylor celebrates scoring his sides first goal of the game It could have been an instant second as Jake Reeves powered down the right flank and squared the ball to Barry Fuller. The captain took on the shot but McCormick was instantly down to make the save with his legs. Fan favourite Akinfenwa also went close as he rose to meet Taylors cross, but the Plymouth goalkeeper was there to make a fine one-handed save before Taylor chipped a one-on-one shot straight into McCormicks arms. Adebayo Akinfenwa scores from the penalty spot Plymouth had a penalty appeal turned down in the dying minutes as Craig Tanner went down in the box under pressure from Dannie Bulman, but the referee waved away the claims.However, Wimbledon were awarded a spot kick in the dying seconds as Ade Azeez went down in the box, with Akinfenwa stepping up after a heated discussion with Kennedy as to who should take it. Akinfenwa (left) celebrates with team-mate John Meades after scoring Akinfenwa prevailed and it proved to be a good choice as he fired past McCormick in the 11th minute of stoppage time to seal promotion to the third tier.

FLORHAM PARK, N. Carl Yastrzemski Jersey .J. -- The New York Jets have placed starting right guard Brian Winters and backup linebacker Mike Catapano on season-ending injured reserve.The team also announced Tuesday it promoted defensive lineman Brandin Bryant and offensive tackle Donald Hawkins to the active roster.The Jets also signed center Kyle Friend and tight end Jason Vander Laan to the practice squad.Winters injured a shoulder during New Yorks 34-13 loss to Miami last Saturday night. Craig Watts, promoted from the practice squad last week, and Dakota Dozier are in the mix to replace Winters.Catapano has a knee injury and was inactive against the Dolphins. He had seven tackles in 11 games, including four starts after switching from defensive end to outside linebacker in the offseason.Bryant was signed to the practice squad in October after being a final cut of Seattle. Hawkins joined the Jets last month after being released by Carolina.---For more NFL coverage: and Tyler Thornburg Jersey . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers.

Siddikur, whose previous win on the circuit came in Brunei three years ago, finished his bogey-free round with a birdie on the 18th for a total of 17-under 199. Indias Shiv Chowrasia, who has finished runner-up in this tournament twice, was in second place after a 66. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Tyreek Hill didnt know what to do when he started hearing thousands of people in Arrowhead Stadium chanting his name, even as he stood all alone on the frozen turf waiting for the punt.Just give them what they want, I guess, Hill thought to himself.So he did, the rookie speedster taking the punt back 78-yards for a game-changing touchdown. It followed shortly after he had hauled in a 36-yard touchdown grab, spurring Kansas City to a 21-13 victory over the Oakland Raiders on a frosty Thursday night and into control of the AFC West.It gave me chills on the sideline, said Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, who had 261 yards passing with a touchdown and an interception. The whole stadium is chanting his name and he answers -- that was one of the coolest things Ive seen, for sure.The Chiefs (10-3) and Raiders (10-3), longtime and bitter rivals, are now tied atop the division, but Kansas City has the tiebreaker by virtue of two head-to-head wins this season.This was as big as it gets for a regular-season game, Smith said. We dont get caught up in all the must-win stuff, thats not how we operate, but we knew the stakes for sure.Charcandrick West added a touchdown run and Travis Kelce had five catches for 101 yards as the Chiefs returned from a back-to-back road wins to beat Oakland for the seventh time in eight meetings.It came at a big cost, though: The Chiefs lost Derrick Johnson for the rest of the season after the star linebacker ruptured his left Achilles just before halftime.I felt a little bit of a letdown when it happened, Chiefs coach Andy Reid acknowledged, but the last thing D.J. would have wanted was a letdown.Derek Carr was just 17 of 41 for 117 yards passing for Oakland, but the ugly line wasnt entirely his fault. Seth Roberts dropped just about everything thrown at him, Amari Cooper couldnt adjust to a long throw for a would-be touchdown early in the fourth quarter, and several more passes were dropped to the rock-hard turf of Arrowhead Stadium on a night when wind chills approached single digits.Latavius Murry led the Raiders with 103 yards rushing and a touchdown.I liked our effort, just didnt like the execution, said Jack Del Rio, who remained winless in four tries against Kansas City as the Raiders coach. In all three phases we came up a little short.That includes the way they defended Hill, one of the games bright young stars.He scorched the Raiders for a 36-yard TD reception before bringing his punt back, in the process becoming the first rookie since Gale Sayers in 1965 with touchdowns on the ground, through the air and on punt and kickoff returns in a single season.I didnt knoww that, he said. Mookie Betts Jersey. I mean, thats great, but Im not the only one on that field doing it. Without those guys blocking for me, and Alex throwing me the rock, none of that stuff would happen.It was still 21-3 when Johnson went down, and his injury seemed to briefly deflate the Kansas City defense. Oakland proceeded to march 92 yards for its lone touchdown just before halftime.But the Raiders kept coming up empty with their chances in the second half.Smith threw a pick on the second play of the third quarter, but Oakland had to settle for a field goal. And when Smith was strip-sacked by Khalil Mack on the next play, the Raiders again had to try a field goal -- only this time, holder Marquette King couldnt get the snap down.The Raiders last chance came with about two minutes left, when a questionable pass interference penalty and a fourth-and-4 conversion got them deep into Kansas City territory. But after a false start on fourth-and-1, Carrs pass toward the end zone was batted incomplete.The Chiefs went on to pick up the first down they needed to put the game away.It was definitely a bad night. Theres no getting around that, Carr said. I hate to have the bad night come on this one, right? Out of all the games that weve had. Obviously, we didnt do enough.CATCHING KELCEKelce has had at least 100 yards receiving in four straight games, matching the franchise record set by Tony Gonzalez. The only tight end with such a streak is Jimmy Graham, who has done it twice.MACK DADDYMack had a strip-sack for the third straight game, and a sack in his eighth straight dating to the Raiders loss to Kansas City in October. That matches Lance Johnstone for the longest streak in franchise history since sacks became official in 1982.INJURIESJohnson appeared to know he had ruptured his Achilles the moment he went down. He ruptured his other Achilles in 2014 and missed the remainder of that season. ... Defensive tackle Rakeem Nunez-Roches left with back spasms and did not return.Raiders offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele was a late scratch with an illness that sent him to the hospital, though Del Rio said hell be able to travel home with the team.

ATHENS, Ga. . -- Coach Steve Wojciechowski challenged Jajaun Johnson at halftime to stop playing timidly and give Marquette a better effort.I got a little mad, and when I get mad I play better, Johnson said. When he got on me, it just clicked.Freshman Sam Hauser scored a career-high 19 points, Johnson added 16 points and 10 rebounds and Marquette had little trouble beating Georgia 89-79 on Sunday.Markus Howard finished with 15 points as the Golden Eagles (6-2) won their fourth straight game.Yante Maten had 24 points and J.J. Frazier 20 for Georgia (5-3).During a 3-minute, 30-second stretch early in the second half, Johnson hit a 3, had three steals, a tip-in, a dunk, hit two free throws and grabbed a rebound.When he plays with the kind of effort and energy that he did at the start of the second half, he can impact the game in a lot of ways, Wojciechowski said. That was another sign of it to start the second half. He really was all over the place, which was good to see.Stegeman Coliseum, which seats 10,523, was about two-thirds full, a decent-sized crowd for a building thats rarely charged with atmosphere in December.Down by 16 with 14:27 remaining, the Bulldogs made a run to get excited the crowd with seven minutes to go, cutting the lead to two on William Jacksons 3 and two free throws.But Howard hit a 3 at the 4:29 mark put Marquette up by 13 and Georgia never threatened again.Defense, defense, Johnson said. They all came from steals. We knew they were going to make a run. We just had to stay together when it got tough.Marquette hit its first six 3s and eight of its first nine as Duane Wilson made it 25-15 with 11 minutes left in the first half to give the Golden Eagles their first double-digit lead.Georgia cut the lead to three before intermission, but coach Mark Fox called time out at the 16:43 mark of the second with the Golden Eagles back again leading by 10.Howards 3 with 15:47 remaining made Marquette 11 of 15 beyond the arc and pushed the lead to 14.Our big lineup couldnt cover them, so we played small most of the day in an effort to try to slow the 3-point shooting, which I dont think we really ever did, Fox said. We didnt do the dirty work to win.BIG PICTUREMarquette: Won despite a rare unproductive game from G Haanif Cheatham, the Golden Eagles third-leading scorer and named last season to the Big East Conferences all-freshman team. Making his 41st straight start in 41 career games, Cheatham missed six of his first eight shots (1 for 7) and picked up his fourth foul with 16:06 remaining. He finished with two points in 25 minutes.Hes played really well for us, Wojciechowski said. That happens over the course of the season. Other guys stepped up, which was great.Georgia: Had its 24th consecutive game in double-digit scoring from Maten, but the Bulldogs are too reliant for him and Frazier on offense. Nobody else averages close to double digits. Fox has yet to find a way to replace the productivity of departed seniors Charles Mann and Kenny Gaines, who combined to average 24.1 points last season.The Bulldogs are looking for other players to step up if theyre going to return to the NCAA Tournament after missing out last season. Poor defense isnt helping either.We have some serious areas to work on, Fox said. Kenny Gaines and Charles Mann were terrific defenders. We havent replaced the defense that walked out of here with a degree. Thats disappointing to lose a game because you dont defend like we need to.UP NEXTMarquette: Host to Fresno State on Tuesday.Georgia: Host to Louisiana-Lafayette on Dec. 14. . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. . Pettersen, winner of last years Evian Championships, had nine birdies and three bogeys, holding off a series of challengers led by Marion Ricordeau of France. The second-ranked Norwegian made her season debut after missing the LPGA Tours opening event last month in the Bahamas because of a shoulder injury. . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. BATON ROUGE, La. -- UConns Katie Lou Samuelson recognized early on that LSU was exhibiting little respect for her long-range shooting. So the 6-foot-3 sophomore made the Lady Tigers pay with the most prolific game yet in her very promising career.She lit us up from the 3-point line, LSU coach Nikki Fargas said. I didnt feel like we had the awareness that we needed to play somebody of her caliber as far as shooting the 3.Samuelson hit seven 3-pointers en route to a career-high 28 points, Kia Nurse added a season-best 15 points along with eight assists, and No. 3 UConn handed LSU its first loss of the season, 76-53 on Sunday night.I was shooting well and my teammates were getting me the ball, so I was going to keep shooting the 3s, Samuelson said. Im pleased with how I shot today and I just hope thatll carry on to the next game.Crystal Dangerfield added 10 points and Gabby Williams grabbed 10 rebounds for UConn (3-0), which extended college basketballs longest active winning streak to 78 games. Yet Huskies coach Geno Auriemma didnt sound too pleased about how his team looked in its most lopsided victory of the young season. He cringed at UConns 20 turnovers, 17 personal fouls, and six-minute stint without a field goal in the third quarter.Today was a struggle, Auriemma said. The ball was flying all over the place.Samuelson, who was widely seen as one of the nations best freshmen last season, hit seven of her eight made shots from 3-point range and also sank all five of her free throws.Nurse called it a huge luxury to know she could look for Samuelson anywhere on the offensive end and be confident she would hit open shots.Raigyne Moncrief scored 15 points for LSU (3-1), which trailed by 21 at halftime and struggled to get much closer than that for much of the second half. Alexis Hyder added 11 points for the Lady Tigers.UConn began to pull way on consecutive 3s by Nurse and Samuelson, which opened a 10-0 run that pushed the Huskies lead to 31-16.Later the period, Samuelson hit a 3 from the right wing while being fouled by Hyder, completing a four-point play which made it 40-23. Samuelson added a couple free throws to give her 14 points in the first half, and Dangerfields jumper made it 46-25 at halftime.BIG PICTUREUConn: UConnss winning streak is the third longest in college basketball history, behind only its own program record of 90 straight from 2008-10 and the UCLA mens record of 88 consecutive victories from 1971-74. ... UConn has now beaten 110 straight unranked opponents since losing by a point to then-unranked St. Johns on Feb. 18, 2012.LSU: The Lady Tigers were off to their best start since their 9-0 beginning to the 2009-10 season and their struggles against a juggernaut like UConn doesnt mean this seasons LSU squad wont be competitive in most games. I thought we did some good things defensively, Fargas said, noting that her team played UConn tight for all but the second quarter. We did some things for three quarters that really allowed us to show the potential of this team. ... Senior guard Rina Hill made her season debut after missing the first three games because of a hip injury. She played 15 minutes and had a rebound and an assist.DIFFERENT ERAThe Huskies have now won five straight against LSU and improved to 8-1 all-time in the series, with the lone loss coming in the 2007 NCAA tournament regional finals to a Lady Tigers squad led by current WNBA and U.S. national team player Sylvia Fowles. After the game, Auriemma ran into another former LSU great, Seimone Augustus, outside the UConn locker room, and they chatted about the state of the Lady Tigers compared to about a decade ago.The talent level is just completely different. Its not even night and day, Auriemma said. So from where it was, to where it is today, its not even the same program. You cant even put it in the same category from back then. I dont know all the reasons why, but when that happens it takes a while to get it back.POLL IMPLICATIONSUConn defeated second-ranked Baylor on Thursday, and by winning convincingly at LSU, the Huskies did nothing to dissuade voters from moving them up at least one spot.UP NEXTUConn: The Huskies host Dayton at the on-campus Gampel Pavilion on Tuesday night.LSU: The Lady Tigers travel to the Virgin Islands for the holiday weekend to play in the Paradise Jam, opening against UTEP on Thanksgiving Day.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. Jabaal Sheard Jersey . -- Brian Kellys worst season at Notre Dame took an embarrassing turn Tuesday as the NCAA announced that academic misconduct orchestrated by a student athletic trainer will cost the storied program all 21 victories from the 2012-13 seasons, including the 12-0 run that vaulted the Fighting Irish into the national championship game against Alabama.It marked just the fourth time the NCAA has cited Notre Dame for a major rules violation. The vacated games include Notre Dames 12 victories in 2012, their best regular season since winning their last national championship in 1988. The season finished with an embarrassing 42-14 loss to the Crimson Tide in the title game and the revelation that linebacker Manti Teo had been the victim of a fake girlfriend hoax.The school ripped the NCAA for its decision to vacate the wins and immediately said it would appeal. The Rev. John Jenkins, the university president, said the NCAA has never before vacated records in such a case.We believe that imposition of the vacation of records penalty without serious underlying institutional misconduct will not primarily punish those responsible for the misconduct, but rather will punish coaches, student-athletes and indeed the entire institution who did nothing wrong and, with regard to this case, did everything right, Jenkins said. He noted the NCAA has since voted to change the rule that brought this case under NCAA jurisdiction rather than leaving such decisions to individual schools.The Division I Committee on Infractions panel also put Notre Dame on probation for a year and ordered a $5,000 fine, penalties the school agreed with. There were no bowl or scholarship punishments.According to the NCAA, the trainer was employed by the athletics department from fall 2009 through the spring of 2013 and partially or wholly completed numerous academic assignments for football student-athletes in numerous courses from 2011 into 2013. It said she did substantial coursework for two players and gave impermissible help to six others in 18 courses over two academic years. The NCAA said the woman continued to provide impermissible academic benefits to football student-athletes for a full year after she graduated and was in her first year of law school elsewhere.In all, the NCAA said, three athletes would up playing while ineligible, one during the 2012 season and the other two the following season, when the Irish went 9-4.Kelly said he knew the vacated wins were a possibility since Notre Dame officials met with the NCAA several months ago. He said he had hoped reasonable people would come to a reasonable decision.If doing the right thing means that youve got to put an asterisk next to these games, thats fine with me, he said. We still beat Oklahoma. We still beat Wake Forest, we still beat all those teams, so you can put an asterisk next to it. If that makes you feel better, then thats fine with me.He said he doesnt believe he has any culpability in the case and has no reason to believe he wont be back as Notre Dames coach next season.I think you guys are confusing this statement with the win-loss record, said Kelly, whose struggling team has a 4-7 record ahead of Saturdays game at No. 12 USC. A win-loss record is always under scrutiny at Notre Dame, and it should be. Thats part of it.The report doesnt name the players involved, but stems from an investigation that began in August 2014 , when the university suspended defensive lineman Ishaq Williams, receiver DaVaris Daniels, linebacker Kendall Moore and cornerback KeiVarae Russell, who werent allowed to play that season. The school later benched safety Eilar Hardy, who was allowed to return in midseason. Russell returned and played for the Irish last season. Quarterback Everett Golson was suspended for the fall 2013 semester for what he termed poor judgment on a test.Notre Dame players said after practice Tuesday that Kelly explained the NCAA announcement after practice. They said it has no effect on them.Its just a couple of guys made a mistake and the whole team goes down with it, left tackle Mike McGlinchey said.McGlinchey said he wasnt worried about the victories being vacated.We know we won the games, said McGlinchey, a team captain. Theyre not going to take that away from us. They can take it away in the record books all they want, but we won the games.It was the first major NCAA violation for Notre Dame since 1999, when the school was placed on probation and had two scholarships taken away because of the relationship between Irish players and former booster Kimberly Dunbar, who embezzled more than $1.2 million from her employer and then lavished the players with gifts, trips and money. The NCAA also lists two other major infractions : in 1971 for the improper administration of financial aid and in 1954 for improper tryouts.If the NCAA erases all 21 Notre Dame victories, the Irish would fall from the school with the second-most wins in NCAA history behind Michigan (935) to fifth place with 875. That would place them behind Texas (892), Nebraska (889), Ohio State (885) and tied with Alabama (875) heading into the game against the Trojans, where they are 17-point underdogs.---More AP college football: and .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Watch Milos Teodosic play for a few minutes and familiar names bounce around your basketball brain. Cleveland Indians Jerseys .When he whips a no-look pass as if telepathically connected to a teammate, his hair flopping on his forehead, its Pistol Pete Maravich. When he breaks down a defender and dribbles baseline, exploring a defense for weak spots, its Steve Nash. And when the games critical moment arises, and Serbia needs a big play, hes part Kyrie Irving, Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook.Teodosic is the best player many hoop fans have never seen.On Sunday, with the world watching, everyone will get to know him.The 29-year-old Teodosic, a major star in Europe who has rejected previous offers to play in the U.S., has a chance to make history as Serbia faces an American team seeking its third consecutive gold medal. The U.S. team narrowly kept its Olympic winning streak intact and escaped with a 94-91 win over Serbia in the preliminary round, when guard Bogdan Bogdanovic missed a game-tying 3-pointer at the horn.The Serbs, though, got the Americans attention -- and none of them more than Teodosic.As good of a player, and as good of a guard, as there is in Europe, U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski said. I love him. Were friends.Teodosic more than held his own against U.S. guards Irving and Kyle Lowry, scoring 18 points (four 3-pointers) with six assists. But maybe more impressive was how he kept Serbias offense engaged throughout an entire possession, wearing down the Americans who got caught watching the ball as the shot clock ticked down and were beaten on late back-door cuts for easy baskets.With the ball in his hands, Teodosic orchestrates this Serbian symphony.In our game, theres movement, but these guys, theres constant movement, U.S. forward Paul George said. You dont ever sit still. In our game, theres moments when youre sitting still. You can have a rest period where theres action on the other side. Youre constantly moving side to side, and its like they dont get tired. Thats very new to us.The American men had been given a scouting report on the 6-foot-4 Teodosic, who plays professionally for CSKA Moscow, from U.S. womens star Diana Taurasi. In addition to playing in the WNBA, the four-time Olympian has played in Europe. Shes grown to appreciate Teodosics game.Ive been watching him play for 10 years, she said. Hes one of my favorite players and I feel like no one has ever heard of him and hes an unbelievable basketball player.Teodosic was masterful in Serbias 87-61 blowout of Australia in the semifinals. He finished with 22 points and five assists in just 22 minutes. He also helped corral guards Patty Mills and Matthew Dellavedova as the experienced Serbs, who play together at both ends of the floor, held the Aussies to just five points in the first quarter, 14 in the first half.Afterward, Teodosic was asked if the Serbs, who were overpowered in a 37-point loss to the U.S. at the 2014 FIBA World Championships, can dethrone the two-time Olympic champs.If I asked you, `Can you imagine that Australia is going to score 14 points in one half? Probably you are going to say no, Teodosic quipped. Team USA is for sure the best team in the tournament. A great team, with big names and I can just say that we are going to go on the court and try to play our game and we will see if its going to be enough for a win.Win or lose, when the Rio Games end, Teodosic will no longer be a secret to U.S. fans, and its a given NBA teams will be tracking him closely over the next year. Hes under contract for one more season in the EuroLeague, but can test free agency next summer. Last week, he said, thats not up to me when asked about his ambition to play with the worlds best talent.For now, Teodosic will take center stage with a shot at shocking the Americans, who have won 75 consecutive games since 2006.He has Serbia one win from fulfilling a vision painted in gold.Thats the dream of all of us a long time ago, he said. None of us imagined this was going to happen. We believed in ourselves, but the final of the Olympics is something huge for each player.And Serbia may have just the player to make the impossible happen.---AP Basketball writer Doug Feinberg contributed to this report Danny Salazar Jersey .

MASON, Ohio -- Dont let the sun and the sand and the beach party atmosphere fool you: An Olympian is an athlete first, even when shes wearing a bikini. Jose Abreu Jersey .While covering beach volleyball at two Summer Games, I heard plenty about the sex appeal of the sport, with the skimpy suits worn by the women attracting most of the attention. I knew there was much more to it, but it wasnt until I got on a court with an Olympic gold medalist that I understood just what makes the sport so difficult: Its the sand itself -- slowing every step, cutting short every jump and conspiring with the beating sun to wear down even the fittest bodies.Or even one belonging to a fortysomething sports writer.During a professional tour event outside Cincinnati this spring, I had a chance to hit the ball around with two-time Olympian and 2008 gold medalist Todd Rogers. Aptly nicknamed The Professor, Rogers is the coach at Cal Poly, where he took over a team that had won one match in each of its previous two seasons and led it to an 11-12 record in his first year.This would prove to be an even bigger challenge.I gave Rogers and his teammate, Robbie Page, a ride over to the practice facility that was the warmup area for players in the AVP Cincinnati Open, the last American stop for the FIVB tour before the close of Olympic qualification. Page, at 7-feet tall, could barely avoid kissing his knees in my midsized rental car.Rogers asked if I had ever played volleyball before, and I told him I had hit the ball around enough to know what I was supposed to do, if not how to do it. But my limited experience in a gym class on a hardwood basketball court did not prepare me to play outdoors, on the sand.Rogers started out by just tossing the ball over the net to me, under-handed, and that proved easy enough; I was able to return a few serves back to him, and pass most others to where my partner would be waiting. Then he stepped back and lofted some easy serves in my direction, and I really figured out what makes the sport so challenging.First there was the movement of the ball, which from a skillful server comes in like a knuckleball in baseball, darting around and confounding any attempt to hit it squarely. The wind also plays a part; many times I thought I had the ball lined up, only to see it drift off course.The hardest part, though, proved to be just moving around.While I lacked the spatial judgment and reaction time of the elite athletes on the courts next to me, even when I correctly determined where to go to hit the ball it just took me too long to get there. I seemed to be moving in slow motion in the 16-inch layer of sand, like in those movies where the sound didnt quite sync up with the actors lips.As Rogers began to speed up his serves -- though still closer to batting practice than full-speed -- more often than not the ball would bounce past me for an ace or, if I was lucky, carom wildly off my increasingly reddening forearms onto a nearby court.On one serve, I didnt even bother. Instead, I watched the ball bounce off the sand a few feet away, turned back to Rogers and said: That was my partners. (This is an old stand-by in beach volleyball, so common it has a name: The husband and wife.)My only problem: I didnt have a partner.Still, Rogers was impressed at how quickly I was picking up the excuses, if not the actual skills.Afterward, he told me some of the things I was doing wrong.Although much of it was due to physical shortcomings, I was also awaiting the serves with my hands together, ready to pass. A pro -- actually, pretty much everyone -- knows that its easier to move with his arms free and only lock them when the ball clears the net. (Young players who make this mistake are often told to run laps around the court with their hands locked, to remind them how much more difficult it is.)I thanked Rogers for the lesson and wished him luck in the tournament. Later that day, I bumped into him back at the venue, where a fan was hoping for a picture with him. I offered to take it.Youre really doing it all, he said, running through the tasks he had witnessed that day: Driver, writer, photographer.And beach volleyball player, too, I reminded him.Nah, he said, better leave that off the list.---Jimmy Golen has covered Olympic beach volleyball for The Associated Press since 2008. You can follow him on Twitter at Chris Beck Jersey . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. Bill Melton Jersey . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. . But Bourque, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, wont be in the lineup when the Habs travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Wednesday. HOUSTON -- With right-hander Collin McHugh producing six scoreless innings on the heels of the scoreless start delivered by rookie right-hander Joe Musgrove the evening before, the Astros might be on the brink of creating the momentum with their starting pitching that theyll need entering a rigorous stretch of their schedule.After completing their three-game series with Oakland on Wednesday, the Astros (70-62) will contest a make-or-break run of 13 games against first-place teams in Texas (away and home), Cleveland (away), and the Chicago Cubs (home). And while the Astros will need help from their inconsistent offense and exceptional bullpen, their rotation will set the pace over the next couple of weeks.Were going to need our starting pitching to pitch well to get where we want to get, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. Were going to expand rosters in September and bring up a little more velocity and have a couple different options, but the tone has always been set on this team by our starting pitchers. And weve always felt very comfortable with a lead so we all have to work in conjunction. The tone that the starters have been able to set getting into games, we generally win those games.Right-hander Mike Fiers (9-6, 4.40 ERA) will toe the rubber for the Astros in the series finale with Oakland, against whom he has struggled in two starts this season.Fiers, whose last scoreless start came on July 1 against the White Sox, is 0-1 with a 6.74 ERA against the Athletics, having allowed eight runs on 12 hits and three walks with 10 strikeouts over 10 2/3 innings. Fiers is winless in five career starts against Oakland, going 0-2 with a 4. Harold Baines Jersey. .76 ERA.Left-hander Ross Detwiler, selected from Triple-A Nashville on Aug. 10, will make his fifth start for Oakland (57-75). Detwiler (1-3, 5.74 ERA) has allowed 14 runs in 14 innings over three starts, all losses, after tossing eight scoreless innings in his first start with the Athletics. He was traded to Oakland from Cleveland on July 17.Detwiler is 1-0 with a 2.38 ERA in five career appearances (three starts) against Houston. While the Astros are seeking to build momentum through their rotation for a postseason berth, the Athletics are looking toward development, with right-hander Kendall Graveman pitching well yet again despite taking a 3-1 loss Tuesday.Graveman is 9-3 with a 3.36 ERA over his last 17 starts. Entering Tuesday, his eight wins since June 23 were tied for third most in the American League, and while the Astros bested him with a pair of home runs from Colby Rasmus and Evan Gattis, Graveman showed again that he just might be turning a developmental corner.This is a guy that we felt like when we made the trade (with the Blue Jays on Nov. 28, 2014) had a high ceiling, Athletics manager Bob Melvin said. Hes shown spurts similar to the ways hes pitching, maybe not this consistent, but hes really taken ownership of the fact that hes the last of the Mohicans here as far as the starters we have and has really pitched like a guy who wants to pitch in the top of the rotation.
