MILWAUKEE -- Another day, another new starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Deon Cain Jersey .Right-hander Brock Stewart becomes the ninth pitcher to start a game for the Dodgers this season -- and fourth to make his MLB debut -- when he takes the mound Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park.The move wasnt formally announced before Los Angeles opened its three-game see at Milwaukee on Tuesday, but Stewart had apparently already been informed and shared the news on Twitter.Im so incredibly fortunate to say that the dreams Ive had since I was a young boy have come true, he tweeted. I got the call!!Stewart, the Dodgers sixth-round draft choice in 2014, has been on a tear this season. He opened the year with Class A Rancho Cucamonga and after two starts (one earned run, 11 innings pitched), was promoted to Double-A Tulsa, where he started nine games and posted a 1.12 ERA. That was enough to earn another promotion, this time to Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he went 3-0 with a 2.89 ERA in three starts and struck out 27 in 18 2/3 innings.Its all just happened really fast, Stewart told The Oklahoman after making his Triple-A debut. Ive been just having a good year, and everythings working for me so far. I cant really pinpoint whats caused all of the success, but its definitely been a whirlwind. Im here for a reason, they believe in me so its all about me going out there and showing I can compete at this level.Milwaukee counters with its own rookie, 31-year-old right-hander Junior Guerra, who faces the Dodgers for the second time this season.He took no decision on June 16 after allowing five runs on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings then rebounded later in the week, holding Oakland to two runs on five hits over seven innings for his fourth career victory.Not much was expected from the 31-year-old when he was claimed off waivers from the White Sox last winter. Once a prospect in the Mets and Phillies system, he spent several years in unaffiliated baseball -- including stints in Mexico, Italy and with Wichita of the independent American Association -- but has since emerged as a workhorse in the Brewers rotation.Right now, nothings guaranteed, Guerra said. All you can do is keep working hard, keep doing your thing, keep doing your job and give your team a chance to win.Milwaukee hopes Guerra can not only snap a two-game losing streak but also get the starting rotation back on track. Brewers starters had combined for a 2.65 ERA over six games before Chase Anderson was tagged for six in four innings of work Tuesday in a 6-5 loss to the Dodgers.Los Angeles may have to go without center fielder Joc Pederson, who bruised his right shoulder crashing into the wall Tuesday night.Sounds like day to day, so hopefully get on some anti-inflammatories, knock it out, Pederson said. Its just a bruise, we have great trainers, get some treatment and be back in no time.But its a big relief that the X-rays came back negative. Cant do anything about a broken bone. Peyton Manning Jersey . -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago. Braden Smith Jersey .ca! Kerry, Two nights after the Scott-Eriksson incident in Buffalo, the Bruins returned home to play San Jose. In that game, Zdeno Chara put a check on Tommy Wingels that clearly targeted his head. . PAUL, Minn. World No. 3 Rory McIlroy has survived a three-man sudden death playoff to secure the US PGA Tour Championship and with it the season-long FedEx Cup and a $US11.53 million ($A15.15 million) payday.McIlroy outlasted Americans Ryan Moore and Kevin Chappell for the Tour Championship title, taking the US$US10million ($A13 million) bonus out of the hands of world No.2 Dustin Johnson in the process.Johnson gave up his grip on both with an implosion on Sunday.The playoff lasted four holes before McIlroy made birdie on the par-4 16th hole to win it all.Earlier McIlroy and Moore both fired impressive six-under-64s on Sunday to get to 12 under for the championship.Chappell managed a 66 to join them.Both Moore and Chappell had birdie putts on the 18th hole in regulation to win the tournament but couldnt make them fall, Moores from just seven-feet lipped out.McIlroy had a six-foot eagle try on the first attempt down the 18th in sudden death but also lipped out the putt.Moore matched his birdie while Chappell was eliminated with a par.Both McIlroy and Moore made pars on the second attempt down 18, sending them back to the 15th, a tough par-3 over water where they matched pars once more.Moore made a clutch 17-foot par save on the fourthh playoff hole to force the issue, but McIlroy buried his birdie putt from 14-feet to win it all. Pat McAfee Jersey. Johnson, who took the overnight lead into Sunday, finished with a 73 to drop back to five under and a tie for sixth.Australias only hope Adam Scott fired a 65 to finish at four under, tied eighth.It was nice to finish birdie, eagle. I played such a great round today and kind of left everything out there.But it all came in a hurry at the last two holes. Its a nice way to finish the year, Scott said.Unfortunately, I wasnt up there contending this week. Thats disappointing because I started in such great position in the FedEx, but lots of positives to take from this year, and lots of good ideas to work on the next year. Hopefully, a little rest before some more golf the rest of this year.Paul Casey (64) finished fourth at nine under.McIlroy now has four wins in FedEx Cup playoff events in his career, the most of any player in FedEx Cup Playoffs history.He has now won multiple World Golf Championships events, multiple Major Championships, four Playoff events and the FedExCup in his career.

HOCKENHEIM, Germany -- Sebastian Vettel has called on Formula One to reconsider introducing Halo for 2017 once more on-track tests have taken place following the summer break. Orange Browns Jerseys .On Thursday the Strategy Group ruled that the head protection device would not be introduced until 2018 at the earliest, citing a lack of on-track testing as the reason for the delay. Prior to the decision the FIA produced a presentation for drivers and teams underlining the readiness of the Halo, but now it has called for further on-track tests to take place at the remaining races ahead of the introduction of the device in 2018.I dont think we should doubt the [FIAs] research, Vettel said. I think the way it was explained to us, the main point is that not all of us had a chance to test the system and so I think thats fair to give that chance to everyone. I think theres a plan probably in Spa, Monza, to be given the chance to all of us and make us run with the system for this one session to see how it feels.Although changes to the technical regulations for the following season are not usually made so late in the year, Vettel sees no reason why Halo cannot be introduced if the tests in practice sessions prove positive.The way I understood it is that its still open for 2017 as well, I mean if everything goes right, why not? In the end we are trying to change something for the better. I think at this point its fair to say OK let everyone have a go and go from there. Simeon Thomas Jersey . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. Antonio Callaway Jersey . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. . He was followed closely by David Clarkson, donning red, seconds later. Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Daniel Bronsons biggest play on a record-setting day as the quarterback at the University of Rochester happened away from the football field.The 21-year-old junior from Lockport in Niagara County was leaving a restaurant in his hometown on Nov. 5 when he saw a man run past a 73-year-old woman and yank her purse out of her arms as she walked with her husband.Bronson took off after the man, who dropped the purse but kept on running. Bronson kept running, too, and tackled the man and held him down with the help of his girlfriends father and brother. Police arrived and arrested the man on a robbery charge.Bronsons off-field heroics came just hours after he piled up nearly 400 yards in total offense and ran 60 yards for a touchdown in a 37-34 home loss to Worcester Polytechnic Institute. His 192 yards rushing was the most ever by a quarterback at the Division III school. He also completed 21 of 32 passes for 195 yards and a touchdown, despite suffering what was later diagnosed as a separated right shoulder in the third quarter.But, its what happened after the game thaat has the microbiology major in the spotlight. Austin Corbett Jersey. After having dinner with his girlfriend and her family at a Lockport restaurant, the group was walking to the parking lot when Bronson saw the man steal the purse of the elderly woman who had just left the eatery with her husband.She screamed, `Help! Help! Bronson said.The 6-foot, 190-pound quarterback took off in pursuit.I chased him a little over 100 yards and jumped on his back, Bronson said on Friday. I rode him to the pavement because I didnt want to hit the concrete.His girlfriends father, Patrick Ellinger, and her brother, also named Patrick, soon caught up and helped subdue the man.On Friday, troopers presented Bronson and the Ellingers with Citizen Recognition Awards during a ceremony in Lockport. Afterward, Bronson said the night of Nov. 5 was the first time he had eaten at that Lockport restaurant.I guess someone put me in the right place at the right time to help someone out, he said.

The thing about the Washington Nationals is they didnt need that much help. Ecco Mens Dress Shoes Black .Without question, 2015 was a disaster of a season, after many projected last years Nationals to be like this years Cubs. The clubhouse at some point became toxic, and that seemingly played a role in the Nationals falling short in their pursuit of a few of their offseason targets.But as much as the Nationals needed a culture change, that was almost as easy as saying goodbye to manager Matt Williams. And a year ago, the Nationals finished with basically the same run differential as the New York Mets. The Nationals remained a talented ballclub, and Bryce Harper makes for a heck of a starting point.So to make it clear: The first-place Nationals didnt come out of nowhere. They were supposed to challenge the Mets for the National League East title. That being said, the Nationals division lead is up to six games. They have the second-best run differential in baseball, and theyre on a 97-win pace. The club is playing extraordinarily well, and Harper hasnt even been Harper; as good as he has been, hes off last years pace. Looking at the Nationals record, you wouldnt know it.To some extent, you have to give credit to new manager Dusty Baker, who has long been one of the games most effective unifiers. And when a team is succeeding, there tend to be dozens of different supporting factors. This years Nationals have been healthier. The pitching has been a little better. Yet on the offensive side, three big surprises stand apart. Two holdovers and one free agent have given the Nationals the boost they needed.

Though it may not be immediately obvious, sports and literature have a lot in common. Camo Jaguars Jerseys . In both worlds, the infinitesimal has grand consequences. Coming up a yard short in sports has the same implications as being a word off in literature.Yes, the work is different, but the commitments to greatness are indistinguishable from one another.Its important, then, that there are people who dedicate themselves to ensuring that the devotion is valued. The greatness, celebrated.In the same way former NBA commissioner David Stern understood that fans who watched basketball were as important to the games popularity as the athletes who played, National Book Foundation executive director Lisa Lucas is working around the clock so that we understand literature is about more than just the people who write, edit, publish, market and sell books; theyre about us -- the people who are, and should be, reading them.Similar to the excitement and fanfare Stern drummed up for the NBA, Lucas is looking to bring a similar excitement to the world of literature by making noise for the National Book Awards, an annual literary award show that celebrates the best of American literature, where those who spend countless hours honing their skills in the dark can be brought to the spotlight, and where even the biggest skeptics can be converted into believers.Great writing can be subjective, but Lucass objective is clear. Elevating the game means thinking about it differently, reckoning with the potential whats to be gained and expanding the ideas of whats possible. And because the smallest things make a worlds difference, the biggest changes are subtle; creating a gradual influence that eventually changes everything. I think about the 1992 Dream Team when I write this.About how many generations of kids, home and abroad, male and female, were emboldened to give their life to a sport that couldve ultimately been regarded as just a game had Stern not opted to allow NBA players to represent the United States in the Olympics instead of college players, which was standard practice at the time.Sterns decision to showcase athletes at the highest level was him understanding that your best foot forward kept you a step ahead. It also makes people want follow your lead.It is not my or anyone elses place to say, This isnt for you, Lucas tells me at her Wall Street office. The statement had come in the midst of a conversation about the direction of the foundation, where its going, where she plans to take it. Serving as its third president and being the first woman and black woman to head the organization, theres an understandable pressure to say what people may expect, or want to hear. Lucas sidesteps the expectations of others by staying true to what brought her to the foundation in the first place: the experience of the reader.If you think youre going to get a specific answer as to what kind of reader Lucas has in mind, youre not. A deeply cherished conviction of hers is that any and every one is a potential reader. The question then becomes: Well, how do you find them? A question Lucas answers with her and her staffs -- team of eight -- incessant travels around the country, visiting various literary festivals, speaking at libraries, participating in numerous panels; anything that drives the point home that theyre serious in meeting potential readers where they are, letting readers know that, even if they not sure about crossing the threshold, the door is always open.This means finding different ways to engage.Theres a different energy Lisa brings with her, director of programs Benjamin Samuels says, her presence alone gets people excited.By this time, weve moved to the room next door to her office where she and the foundations staff are preparing the invites for this years National Book Awards. Besides the awards being the organizations biggest event, its also one, if not the, most premier event in literature -- and Lucas has treated it as such.To build buzz for the awards, Lucas partnered up with The New Yorker to announce the finalist for each of the awards four categories -- young peoples literature, poetry, non-fiction and fiction -- on Facebook Live. Nearly 60,000 people watched the live broadcast, which is by no means a small number, but to see the moon, like Lucas wants to do, you have to be willing to look beyond the stars. Her unconventional approach is what landed actor and comedian Larry Wilmore as the host for this years award ceremony and dinner.There are plenty people with big voices, talking about books all the time, Lucas says while sorting and signing award invitations, and we want them at the table.I think about Lucass comment about bringing more people to the table in context to a few things: who her favorite athletes are (LeBron James, Serena and Venus Williams -- any athlete thats using their platform to bring awareness to social and political issues), her position as the executive director of National Book Foundation and what it may represent to people beyond the literary world.And the album thats playing in the background, Solanges A Seat at the Table, a record documenting what it means to grapple with your own inner glory even as the world fights you. What Lucas shares with her favorite athletes is the willingness to use her position to fight for a bigger table with more seats, one where everyone can sit.As Solanges album continues to play beneath our conversation, Lucas exclaims that in addition to LeBron, and the Williams sisters, shes also a huge fan of the entire WNBA.When I ask her why, Because were [the foundation] are a lot like them, she says. I remember when the WNBA first started, everyone said they wouldnt last longer than two years. But just like great literature, look: Theyre still here.?Yahdon Israel writes about race, class, gender and culture in American society. He has written for Avidly, The New Inquiry, Guernica and LitHub. He runs a popular Instagram page, which promotes literary culture as style with the hashtag #literaryswag. Tanner Lee Jersey .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. Leon Jacobs Jersey . -- Nathan Pancel scored twice as the Sudbury Wolves defeated the North Bay Battalion 4-2 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . MIAMI -- The Miami Heat, stuck in their first six-game losing streak since 2008, are desperate for a win.The Heat (2-8) plays host on Thursday night to the Milwaukee Bucks (5-5), who will be the less-rested team after losing to the Atlanta Hawks, 107-100, on Wednesday night.But despite the Heats slow start, team president Pat Riley said he is not discouraged.We love what we have in our young players, Riley told the media on Wednesday. Our young players ... theyll get it, but it doesnt happen overnight.The under-24 young players Riley and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra are most relying on include 20-year-old 6-7 small forward Justise Winslow out of Duke and 23-year-old 6-6 shooting guard Josh Richardson from Tennessee. Both are second-year players.However, injuries have slowed or are now slowing their development.Richardson started the season on the injured list and missed the first four games. And after making a team-best 46.1 percent of his 3-pointers last season, he has been accurate on just 28.6 percent so far this season.Winslow is expected to miss his second straight game on Thursday after suffering an injury to his left wrist. His loss is crucial because he leads the team in minutes played and is averaging 11.6 points and 4.7 rebounds.The problem with Winslow is the same one he entered the NBA with -- his shooting accuracy. In fact, his problem has gotten even worse, which has negated, in some respect, all the good things he does on the defensive end and in his all-around game.Winslow shot 42.2 percent from the floor last season, and that has slipped, alarmingly so, to 33.1 percent this season. His 3-point marksmanship has decreased from 27.6 last season to 21.4 percent so far this season.Clearly, the Heat needs more from their 2015 draft class, and they also need veteran point guard Goran Dragic (left ankle) to return from injury. Dragic is averaging 16.3 points and a team-high 5.9 assists.Unfortunately for the Heat, it does not appear they will have either Winslow or Dragic in Thursdays lineup to face the Bucks.And thats a problem because the Bucks have a talented lineup that belies the 33 wins they managed last year. TThe Bucks and their length have given the Heat trouble in the past, even when Miami had its great run with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Black Jaguars Jerseys. That Big Three is long gone from Miami. But in Milwaukee, the Bucks appear to be ascending with players such as Jabari Parker, who is only 21; and Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is 22.Parker, a 6-8, 250-pounder, is averaging 19.1 points and 6.2 rebounds. Parker has been more assertive offensively, and thats why he has increased his scoring average from the 14.1 last season.Jabari is going to be a perennial All-Star, Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard said prior to this season.Antetokounmpo, nicknamed the Greek Freak, is already a star. He leads the team in scoring (21.3), rebounds (8.2), blocks (2.1) and steals (2.0). He is also averaging 5.3 assists, which is second on the team behind Matthew Dellavedova (5.9).The Freak is so talented that the Bucks often use the 6-11, 225-pounder as a point guard on offense.And Antetokounmpo is so good that President Barack Obama even mentioned him this week while visiting Greece.We are all cheering, Obama said, for Giannis Antetokounmpo, who seems to be getting better every year.The Bucks certainly agree with that sentiment. Antetokounmpo had five triple-doubles last season, which ranked fourth in the NBA.Bucks coach Jason Kidd said Parker and Antetokounmpo are vault players in that they will not be traded.You dont even start a conversation about Giannis or Jabari, Kidd has said. They are untradeable.The Bucks have surrounded their core two with players such as center Greg Monroe, who had 32 double-doubles last season; and 6-4 guard Dellavedova, a high-effort difference-maker on the court.Milwaukee, a dreadful perimeter-shooting team last season, has also improved in that regard. Free-agent newcomer Mirza Teletovic and 2015 first-round pick Rashad Vaughn are the main reason for that improvement.Add it all up, and the Heats long losing streak may continue, especially if Dragic and Winslow are unable to play.

NORFOLK, Va. Michael Roberts Jersey . -- Greg Hankerson threw for 151 yards and two touchdowns to help Norfolk State beat Division II-member Elizabeth City 20-12 on Sunday night in a season opener pushed back due to weather.George Wahee caught his first career pass and scored from 12 yards out to give Norfolk State a 20-12 lead with 2:50 left in the third quarter.The Spartans held Elizabeth City scoreless in the second half to snap a 12-game nonconference losing streak.Quintreil Chung gave Norfolk State a 7-0 lead on a 3-yard TD run. After Elizabeth City scored on Daquan Neals short run late in the first quarter, James Church caught a 7-yard TD pass from Hankerson for a 14-6 lead.Elizabeth City pulled to 14-12 just before halftime on Daquan Neals 29-yard TD catch from Victor Tabbs.The 57th all-time meeting between the teams was originally scheduled for Saturday but was postponed due to inclement weather from storm system Hermine. It was their first meeting since 1996, which was the Spartans last season in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association. Anthony Zettel Jersey . Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. Miles Killebrew Jersey .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle. MIAMI -- The San Antonio Spurs still have that winning NBA Finals formula of good defence and a little luck on offence. Tim Duncan overcame a slow start to finish with 20 points and 14 rebounds, Tony Parker banked in a desperation jumper on a broken play with 5.2 seconds left and the Spurs withstood LeBron James triple-double to beat the Miami Heat 92-88 on Thursday night in a thrilling Game 1. Parker ended up with 21 points after referees reviewed his shot to make sure it just beat the shot clock, giving San Antonio a four-point edge in the game that was close the whole way. "We got a little bit lucky in Game 1," Parker said. "Sometimes thats what it takes to win games." Playing for the championship for the first time since sweeping James Cleveland Cavaliers in 2007 for their fourth title, the Spurs improved to 5-for-5 in Game 1s, hanging around for three quarters and then blowing by the defending champions midway through the fourth. Manu Ginobili, the third member of San Antonios Big Three that has combined for 99 post-season victories together, finished with 13 points, and Danny Green had 12. "It doesnt matter how were categorized -- old, veterans, whatever you call us, were in the mix," the 37-year-old Duncan said. San Antonio turned up its defence in the fourth quarter, limiting Miami to seven points in the first 8 1/2 minutes in returning to the finals just the way it left -- with a victory over James. James had 18 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists in his second straight NBA Finals triple-double, but he shot only 7 of 16 against some good defence by Kawhi Leonard, and Miamis offence stalled in the fourth quarter. "The Spurs are the Spurs," James said. "Theyre going to put you in positions where you feel uncomfortable offensively and defensively, and every time you make a mistake, theyre going to capitalize on it." Game 2 is Sunday night. James became a champion on this floor last year in Game 5 against Oklahoma City, but he hasnt forgotten his first taste of the finals. The Spurs overwhelmed his Cavaliers and James spoke Wednesday like someone who had payback in mind. He was 22 then, a fourth-year player headed for greatness but with holes in his game that San Antonio exploited. Revenge wont come easily -- if it comes at all. Dwyane Wade scored 17 points for the Heat but was shut out in the fourth quarter. Chris Bosh had only two of his 13 in the final period. James shot an airball on a 3-pointer on his first shot attempt, then was soon back to the step-in-front- of-him-at-your-own-risk force that has made him the games best player. But San Antonio handled that and everything else Miami did, even while only shooting 42 per cent from the field. "This is a hell of a game to play because both teams are so good offensively and defensively," Bosh said. "You cant have any letdowns." Forced to seven grueling games by the rugged Indiana Pacers in the East finals, the Heat clearly enjoyed the more wide-open flow of this game, making 18 of their first 30 shots. But the Spurs defence simply got better as the game went along, forcing Miami into five turnovers in the final quarter. "I thought we were a little fatigued honestly in the fourth quarter," Wade said. "Looking around, we looked like a team that came off a seven-game series." Miami outshot and outrebounded San Antonio in the first half, yet led only 52-49. The Heat stayed ahead until Parkers free throws gave San Antonio a 77-76 edgee with 7:47 remaining. Sylvester Williams Jersey. James set up Bosh for a jumper on the next possession for his 10th assist, but Leonard made a follow shot and Parker turned James turnover into a spinning layup and an 81-78 lead exactly halfway through the fourth. "We were just trying to hang," Parker said. "In the third quarter, the same thing. In the fourth quarter we finally made some stops and made a couple of big shots." The lead grew to seven, but Miami was back within two and appearing ready to get the ball back when Parker lost control of the ball and his balance as the clock was set to expire. He gathered the ball and his footing, turning and tossing it in as the light above the basket turned red. "Tonys shot is one of those things that happens sometimes," Ginobili said. "We got lucky today." It was an entertaining start to a matchup that seemed years in the making between perennial contenders, the Spurs making their fifth appearance and the Heat their fourth. Commissioner David Stern called it "probably the most anticipated finals in who knows, 30 years," likely more a bit of hyperbole in his final state of the league address than a comment meant to slight fans of the Celtics, Lakers, or Michael Jordans Bulls. It came with the promise of beautiful basketball between two fluid offences who were built differently but share common beliefs and a healthy respect. The Spurs value system over stardom, never asking for attention -- and too often not getting it. The Heat have been never been out of the spotlight from the moment James and Bosh showed up to join Wade, James vowing multiple titles as lights flashed and music boomed, showing they were going to be loud and impossible to ignore. The Heat have a assembled a deep supporting cast loaded with 3-point shooters that turned them into a 66-win powerhouse this season, sending the Spurs to the finals in the unfamiliar role of underdog. They handled it just fine. The Spurs hadnt played since May 27, when they finished off a sweep of Memphis in the Western Conference finals, and even coach Gregg Popovich said he didnt know what to expect. San Antonio turned it over on its first possession, leading to Wades fast-break dunk. Then the Spurs ran off nine straight points, showing the rest helped more than any rust hurt. Only Duncan, who has remained among the NBAs best, looked out of sync. He missed all five shots in the first quarter before going to the bench late in the period with his second foul. The Heat had a 38-29 lead by the time he returned, and he quickly got on the board with an inside basket en route to a 12-point second quarter. Back in the arena where James had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists in last years closeout game, fans arrived to white shirts reading "Witness Miami" draped over their seats. The Miami fans didnt like what they witnessed, many leaving as referees reviewed Parkers shot. Notes: Duncan joined Elgin Baylor, A.C. Green and John Salley as the only players in NBA history to make a Finals appearance in three decades. Salley is the only one to win titles in three decades. ... The teams combined for 12 turnovers, tying the record for the fewest in a playoff game. San Antonio had just four. ... Eleven of the Spurs 15 players were making their finals debuts. Only Duncan, Parker, Ginobili and Matt Bonner were on the 2007 team. ... The Spanish national soccer team was at the game, along with former Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino, whose No. 13 jersey is retired in the arena.

The arrival of two horses from Victoria, one a familiar face and the other a stable newcomer, have helped boost Brisbane trainer Robert Heathcotes spirits. Chad Thomas Jersey .Heathcote started the season in great form, winning 40 races in the first three months but since then has had only a handful of winners.The slump coincides with civil work starting within metres of my stables at Eagle Farm. The horses have been unable to rest and I have had to try other methods to get them relax, Heathcote said.But they have finished work for the Christmas holidays and I am told when they return it will be at the other end of the track and away from me.The work is for infrastructure for another project away from the infield stabling complex site which has been idle since the death of two construction workers in October.Heathcotes favourite horse Buffering will arrive in Brisbane this week for a summer holiday along with sprinter Trevinder who runs at Doomben on Saturday.The multiple Group One-winning Buffering now resides at Living Legends in Victoria but will spend most of the summer at his part-owner Bruce Harrys Queensland property.He is set to make an appearance at Eagle Farm on New Years Eve to coincide with the Buffering Stakes. He will also probably be at the Gold Coast on Magic Millions day, Heathchote said.Trevinder will have his first start for the stable in the Listed Bribie Hcp (1050m).The gelding has won only four races but has finished second on 10 occasions.One of those seconds was at his most recent start in with in the Group Three Sir John Monash Stakes at Caulfield in July.Formerly trained by Mat Ellerton and Simon Zahra, Trevinder was also second in the Listed W J Adams Stakes at Caulfield earlier this year.He is a speed horse and won one of the heats of the Jeep Challenge - those short course races at Moonee Valley - earlier in his career, Heathcote said.His owners sent him here for easier races and the Bribie looked a perfect way to start. Trevinder has run well in stakes races previously and he has settled in well.Trevinder has drawn barrier 18 in the field of 14 plus six emergencies but at this stage will start with Luke Tarrant to ride.Sold For Song and Wicked Intent were scratched on Wednesday after drawing 19 and 20 respectively. Antonio Callaway Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Austin Corbett Jersey . Calgary scored on the first shift, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice as the Flames cruised to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. . 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. Henrikh Mkhitaryans first league goal for Manchester United was enough to ensure all three points went to the Red Devils with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford on Sunday.The Armenian latched on to the end of a smart through ball from Ander Herrera and took one superb touch to knock the ball into a position to shoot before sending an unstoppable effort past Hugo Lloris and into the roof of the net. Paul Pogba also rattled the crossbar in the second half with a thunderous free kick but it wasnt to affect the outcome of the game. The game ended on a sour note however, as Mkhitaryan was forced to leave the pitch on a stretcher after a late tackle from Danny Rose.United were good value for the three points andd had it not been for some fine goalkeeping from Lloris it couldve been three or four to the hosts. Authentic Browns Jerseys. David de Gea also played his part making some good saves to deny the likes of Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son while Harry Kane failed to find the target with some long range efforts. Victor Wanyama was also guilty of missing a golden chance to equalise on 57 minutes but the Kenyan completely missed the target with a header after the home defence were at sixes and sevens.Full time and United stay sixth but move to within three points of fifth-placed Spurs.

Bobby Petrino is supposedly a changed man. Ecco Fraser Tilbud .Sorry, not buying it.There are too many selfish missteps along the way to suddenly believe Petrino wont be thinking about himself -- and only himself -- the next time he reaches an ethical fork in the road.Rest assured, theres always a next time with this guy.During his first tenure at Louisville, he was constantly on the prowl for better jobs even while insisting how happy he was. Then he bailed on the Atlanta Falcons with three games to go in his lone season with the NFL team. Finally, he hired his mistress over better-qualified applicants at Arkansas, and then tried to cover up his horrific lapses in judgment after an infamous motorcycle crash.As with most people who arent bothered by their conscience, and taking advantage of a college athletics system thats always willing to sell its soul in pursuit of a championship, Petrino managed to slither his way back into the national spotlight with a Louisville redux.The Cardinals surged to No. 3 in the national rankings with a 63-20 drubbing of powerhouse Florida State a couple of weeks ago, and now theyre heading into a Saturday night showdown with fifth-ranked Clemson.Not surprisingly, Petrinos enablers insist hes finally learned from all his mistakes.History says otherwise.And theres a LOT of history.Lets go back to 2003, when a private jet landed at a small airport near Louisville, and Petrino climbed aboard to secretly interview for a head coaching job at Auburn that didnt actually exist, because the Tigers already had a coach. He didnt bother giving his employers the courtesy of a heads-up to his wandering eye, and didnt seem the least bit concerned that Auburn officials hadnt bothered to go through proper protocols, either.With Petrino, its always about me, me, me.When the sordid affair came to light, the coach and his Auburn suiters were forced to abandon their clandestine courtship. Well let Petrinos own words take it from here: Im going to stay here at the University of Louisville. Its the place I want to be and the job I want.Yeah, right.Petrino kept right on winning -- lets face it, the guy is a hell of a coach -- which led to an annual flirtation with better, higher-paying jobs. Louisville kept bending over backward to keep him happy and finally doled out a 10-year, $25.6 million contract in the summer of 2006. Again, well let Petrino speak for himself: This is where my family wants to be and where I want to be.Exactly 178 days later, Petrino left for the Falcons.He quickly made an impression on his new team -- and not the kind most people would want. He imposed absurd rules on his players, such as ordering grown men not to talk on flights or at team meals. He treated other team employees with disdain, not even bothering to speak to them when they passed in the hall.Jimmy Cribb, the longtime official photographer of the Falcons, details it all in his new book, Youll Never Get In The Game.I dont think Ive ever seen another person like him, Cribb writes. Ive never had another coach treat me that way, and not just me, anybody.Petrinos brief tenure in Atlanta was a debacle, though in fairness it wasnt entirely his fault. Franchise quarterback Michael Vick went to prison for dogfighting and never took a snap for his new coach. The Falcons went 3-10 before Petrino bolted for the door again -- not long after assuring team owner Arthur Blank he wasnt going anywhere.Less than 24 hours after coaching the Falcons for the final time, he was in Fayetteville chanting, Woooo, Pig! Sooie!Well let his epitaph in Atlanta be a form letter to the players, left at each of their lockers after he was gone and containing all the warmth of a Wells Fargo salesman trying to sign you up for another credit card you dont need:This decision was not easy but was made in the best interest of me and my family. While my desire would have been to finish out what has been a difficult season for us all, circumstances did not allow me to do so. I appreciate your hard work and wish you the best.Yuk.Of course, Petrino would engineer an even greater flop in basic human decency as Arkansas coach.He had an affair with a woman half his age, got her a job on the staff and gave her $20,000. Then came a motorcycle crash that left him all beat up and wearing a neck brace. At first, Petrino said he was alone. Then, after dodging multiple chances to tell the truth, he admitted being with his mistress. He only came clean after being tipped off that his lies were going to be exposed in a police report.Petrino was fired after what athletic director Jeff Long described as a pattern of misleading and manipulative behavior designed to deceive me and members of the athletic staff, both before and after the motorcycle accident.Now, the coach is riding high again.Well, enjoy it while you can, Louisville.Chances are, another bump in the road is right around the corner.---Paul Newberry is a sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Canterbury centre Chase Stanleys wretched run of injuries has continued, with a knee problem ruling him out for the remainder of the NRL season. Damion Ratley Jersey .Stanley, who has played four NRL matches in 2016, tore his anterior cruciate ligament while playing reserve grade against the Wests Tigers on Saturday and needs surgery.Its the third time Stanley has injured a knee after he first required a reconstruction in 2011, before he tore the knee attachment to his calf in 2014.The 27-year-old also needed a third shoulder reconstruction over the off-season, before he endured a hamstring injury in his 100th NRL match earlier in the season, from which he was on the comeback path.Stanleys brother, Kyle, was forced to retire from rugby league at age 24 last year after requiring a fifth knee reconstruction. Nick Chubb Jersey . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . Simeon Thomas Jersey . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. . Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- After opening the season with a pair of tight victories, Maryland really needed a stress-free matchup against an inferior opponent.That is precisely what the Terrapins got.Damonte Dodd had 13 points and 10 rebounds, L.G. Gill scored 15 and Maryland cruised past St. Marys 93-45 on Thursday night.Its nice to have something like this, coach Mark Turgeon said after the Terps (3-0) overwhelmed their in-state Division III opponent.The blowout came after the Terrapins squeezed past American and won an emotional thriller on Tuesday at Georgetown.We didnt put any prep into it. Thats really the grind of the season, Turgeon said. We put so much into American and Georgetown, it was nice just to show up and play a game.Turgeon started three freshmen, along with Dodd and junior guard Melo Trimble. Two of those first-year players, Anthony Cowan and Justin Jackson, combined for 10 of Marylands first 11 points.Ten different players scored in the first half for the Terrapins, who led 13-2, 21-3 and 26-6 before an 18-4 run made it 44-10.The 6-foot-11 Dodd is three inches taller than anyone on the St. Marys roster. He dominated the lane on both ends and had three blocked shots.It feels good, Dodd said. It was fun to be out there. They tried their hardest. They had some really good players. But it was nice to have a blowout and get our rhythm on defense and offense. This really helps us a lot going into the next game.Trimble, the star of the team, contributed seven points in 15 minutes. Freshman Kevin Huerter and Jaylen Brantley each scored 11.Tre Mouton scored 16 for the Seahawks (1-1), a member of the Capital Athletic Conference. St. Marys was coming off a 95-66 win over Penn State Altoona, but this obviously represented a huge leap in the level of competition.I told the guys to be proud of the effort you put out there, coach Chris Harney said. Womens Browns Jerseys. You never know how bad it could have been. We could have been walking out of here (having lost) 150-10. Clearly, it was two different teams as far as size and skill.The Seahawks opened by going 1 for 7 from the floor with seven turnovers and did not make successive baskets until midway through the second half.This marked the fourth time in 12 years under Harney that the Seahawks faced a team higher than Division III. Theyre 0-4 in those games.YOUTH IS SERVEDSt. Marys: Because the Seahawks are in rebuilding mode, Harney was particularly pleased with his teams performance. We dont have any seniors, we have a pretty young team. This for us was really preparation for our season in Division III.Maryland: The freshmen shined -- Jackson had 10 rebounds, Cowan finished with eight points and seven assists, and Huerter led the team with five field goals. But Turgeon was most impressed with sophomore center Ivan Bender, who had seven rebounds and six points in 18 minutes. Hes the most improved player on our roster, the coach said.THE TAKEAWAYSt. Marys: The Seahawks took a beating, but at least they got to play in a major college arena before resuming a schedule that includes road games against Wesley and Christopher Newport.Maryland: The Terrapins received a modest workout in a game situation. The low-pressure scenario enabled Turgeon to shuffle his freshmen and work on plays that will be useful in the future.UP NEXTSt. Marys faces Baldwin Wallace on Saturday in the Dan Greene Memorial Invitational.Maryland hosts another in-state foe, Towson, on Sunday afternoon.

NRL GRAND FINAL KEY MATCH-UPS:VALENTINE HOLMES (Sharks) v SULIASI VUNIVALU (Storm)They were neck and neck all year, together with Canberras Jordan Rapana, for top tryscoring honours and now theyll go toe-to-toe on the biggest stage. Wholesale Cowboys Jerseys . Holmes tops the list at Cronulla with 19 on the right edge, while Vunivalus 23 on the left edge broke former Storm sensation Israel Folaus record for most tries in an NRL season by a rookie.JAMES MALONEY (Sharks) v COOPER CRONK (Storm)Theyll be wearing different numbers but theres no doubting both players are the No.1 orchestrators for their teams in good-ball situations. Cronks numbers wipe the floor with Maloneys in 2016, with the Storm general ahead on try assists (29 to 10), line break assists (22 to 10), tries (12 to seven) and tackle breaks (30 to 24).MICHAEL ENNIS (Sharks) v CAMERON SMITH (Storm)The NRLs serial pest versus the games elder statesman. The emotion of Ennis farewell from the game will dominate talk in the build-up, although it will be countered by Smiths trademark coolness under pressure. Ennis in-your-face style is in direct contrast to Smiths calculated demeanour, and whoever dominates will be a telling factor in determining the winner.ANDREW FIFITA (Sharks) v JESSE BROMWICH (Storm)Another match-up of contrasts, with Fifitas unorthodox front-row play baring little similarity to Bromwichs effective footwork close to the line. Either way, both have provide the go-forward impetus for their respective teams. Fifita shades Bromwich for x-factor, highlighted by his superior tackle breaks (90 to 42) and offloads (66 to 43).BEN BARBA (Sharks) v CAMERON MUNSTER (Storm)The numbers alone make for tantalising reading, and set the scene for either to be a possible game-breaker. Barba edges Munster in tries (15 to 4) and try assists (21 to 12), but trails in line break assists (19 to 23) and tackle busts (97 to 114). Barba was once considered the heir to Billy Slaters Queensland jersey, while Munster has done an outstanding job for the Storm in his absence.

Is Luis Suarez the best striker in the world? Lionel Messi thinks so. James Daniels Jersey . We take a look at his stunning season... He is the best out-and-out forward there is in the game today. He has so much to offer the team and it is a pleasure to play alongside him. We also have a very good relationship off the pitch and I am very happy to be sharing everything with him. - Lionel MessiWhen Messi made these remarks to FIFA in January, few could have expected him to mean the last line quite so literally. The Barcelona icon went one step further at the weekend - even electing to share his penalty with Luis Suarez. Luis Suarez shows why hes arguably the worlds best striker - scoring Barcelonas second in their 3-1 win against Sporting Gijon. Messis decision to pass that penalty against Celta Vigo amazed some and angered others - there were suggestions that Cristiano Ronaldo believes it to be part of a conspiracy to deny him the Pichichi award for Spains top scorer - but it was also symbolic of something else.For while Messi remains the undoubted star of this wonderful Barcelona team, increasingly its Suarez who is the one expected to administer the decisive blow.Having added to his tally with a fine finish against Sporting Gijon on Wednesday, the Uruguayan forward has now scored 24 goals in La Liga this season, more than any other player.Those goals have come at a rate of one every 86 minutes, and thats just in the league. Since scoring in the UEFA Super Cup win over Sevilla in August, Suarez has also added five goals in the Champions League, five in the Copa del Rey and, yes, five at the Club World Cup in Japan. Lethal Suarez Luis Suarez has scored 24 La Liga goals in 2070 minutes at a rate of one every 86.25 minutes. His hat-trick in the semi-final of the latter competition prompted Barca coach Luis Enrique to explain what Suarez brings that others do not. Hes an assassin in the area, a killer, a striker capable of finishing a move that seems like it has no end product, said Enrique.This sense of urgency has helped transform Barcelona. Quite rightly, much has been made of Barcas devastating forward trio, but Neymar and Messi were together for the teams unsuccessful 2013/14 campaign. It took the arrival of Suarez to make things work. I dont think Luis Enrique has improved the style. He has just put Luis Suarez in the team. Guillem Balague I dont think Luis Enrique has improved the style, said Sky Sports Spanish football expert Guillem Balague recently. He has just put Luis Suarez in the team. Indeed, its been suggested that the players themselves figured out the formation - with Suarez switching to the centre.Its amazing how theyve worked it out, fellow Spanish football expert Terry Gibson told Sky Sports. Suarez looked a bit of a square peg in a round hole when he first arrived. He was playing on the right side of attack. Suarez and Messi have switched positions to bring the best out of each other Messi was still the centre-forward and didnt look at home. I think we used the excuse, or the reasoning, that Suarez hadnt played until October in that first season so he was a little bit rusty, but I think it was more the positional change.Eventually, were led to believe the three of them got together, particularly Messi and Suarez, and suggested Suarez play as the focal point in attack and thats allowed Messi to drift around to get on the ball. Suarez and Lionel Messi pulled off an incredible penalty against Celta Vigo Whether he goes right, left or drops deep, in the past when Messi wanted to roam around as the false nine, Barca lacked a centre-forward. It was left to a central midfield player to get there and to be the striker. The way theyve worked it out is quite remarkable.The numbers have been remarkable too. Suarez has 40 goals in all competitions this season but theres more to his game. He presses and harries so others dont have to. With 10 La Liga assists, hes directly contributed to more goals than anyone in Europes top-five leagues. Goals plus assists - Europes major leagues in 2015/16 Player Club Goals Assists Total Luis Suarez Barcelona 24 10 34 Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid 21 8 29 Zlatan Ibrahimovic Paris St Germain 21 8 29 Gonzalo Higuain Napoli 24 2 26 Neymar Barcelona 17 9 26 After the 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid last month, Enrique described Suarez as a complete player who has even improved and for one former Liverpool team-mate its now simply a question of how far that the forward can go.He has moved up to another level, said Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher earlier this month. He is playing alongside some of the best players in the world and he is one of the great players in world football now. You wonder how many hell get, he should be looking at 50 goals. Jamie Carragher on Luis Suarez We always thought that at Liverpool but he had to do it in the Champions League. He did that last year with Barcelona and now this season, his first full season, his goal record is one of the best in Europe. You wonder how many hell get, he should be looking at 50 goals.With the potential for Suarez to play in a further 22 games this season, that target is well within reach. Indeed, at the current rate, the 60-goal barrier is at risk. And with Messis blessing, it would be a brave man to bet against Luis Suarez - arguably the worlds best striker.Is Luis Suarez the worlds best striker? Leave a comment or tweet us @SkyFootball...

Now that hes hitting streaking teammates with pin-point passes for easy layups, Love is asserting himself as one of the true superstars in the league. With the NBA season quickly approaching, fantasy players across the country are gearing up for in-person and online drafts. To better prepare you for what to expect come draft day, we gathered some of our top fantasy basketball experts to participate in a mock selection process. How will James Harden play as a point guard under new coach Mike DAntoni? Will Anthony Davis be able to stay healthy all season in New Orleans?The following group helped answer those questions and more in our second mock draft for fantasy hoops: ESPN editors Greg Rosenstein, Chris Ramsay, Austin Tedesco and Tom Carpenter; ESPN writers Eric Karabell, Joe Kaiser, Jeremias Engelmann and Jim McCormick; ESPN fantasy researcher Kyle Soppe; and ESPN NBA Stats & Information analyst Matthew Wittyngham.Note: The scoring system for this particular mock draft is rotisserie, in which teams are ranked from first to last in each statistical category.Wittyngham on Westbrook: Once it was announced that?Kevin Durant was leaving the Thunder, Westbrooks fantasy, MVP and overall basketball stock skyrocketed. Since he entered the league, he has had a usage percentage of 37.3 percent with Durant off the court, which would rank highest among qualified players in any season during that time. He finished with 18 triple-doubles last year, with a majority coming without Durant. Westbrook has an engine that allows him to play 40-42 minutes a game. He might not be efficient in any way, as he turns the ball over more and shoots worse without Durant, but he fills the sheet everywhere else.Rosenstein on Curry: I thought long and hard about going Karl-Anthony Towns here but then decided to not overthink it. This is Steph Curry, after all, the guy who put up absolutely insane fantasy basketball numbers last season en route to being our highest-rated player. Im not as worried as some are about Kevin Durant taking away shots, and Curry could potentially bolster his already strong assist rate with the addition of the 6-foot-9 sharpshooter.Ramsay on Davis: Im really happy with this team. I feel very good about getting all-around fantasy great Anthony Davis at the end of the first round. I expect hell have a strong bounce-back year after sitting with injuries for much of last season. Davis will put up big numbers in a lot of categories: blocks, points, rebounds, field goal percentage.Ramsay on Lillard: Im also happy to get another great player in Damian Lillard at the top of the second round. Its always fun to get an All-Star you really like on your fantasy team. I love Dame, and I love the Blazers, so thats a win-win for me. Lillard is going to get buckets, make a ton of 3s, drain his free throws and drop a Dame D.O.L.L.A worth of dimes.Kyle Soppe on Paul George: Ill spare you the story on going with DeMarcus Cousins in the first round: Ive already fought that fight and continue to believe that is the best way to approach any draft in which you pick fifth or later. PG13 missed nearly the entire 2014 season, but he has played at least 79 games in the other three seasons since 2012, offering elite production in the process. There were four other players who averaged 2.5 3PM last season with 11 assists-plus-rebounds last season: Curry, Harden, Durant and another second-round pick Im a big fan of,?Kyle Lowry.Tedesco on Antetokounmpo: Im all-in on Point Giannis. Even if the Bucks arent very good (barring a big trade, they probably wont be), Antetokounmpo can keep chasing triple-doubles, and thats totally fine with me.Kaiser on Lowry: I love Paul Millsap in fantasy, and with Millsap sitting there at pick No. 17 in Round 2, it was very tempting to take him. But because I passed on a point guard in the first round, I didnt want to get aced out on a top player at that position, so I opted for Kyle Lowry over Millsap. Its worth noting that Kemba Walker and Eric Bledsoe were both available when my next pick rolled around at No. 24. If I could do it over again, I probably would have drafted Millsap and settled for either Bledsoe or Walker in Round 3.Wittyngham on Thomas: As I mentioned in the first mock draft, it is key to get a strong point guard, and I took two elite ones with my first two picks. Thomas first full season with Boston was a career one, as he averaged a career high in PPG, APG and 3PM per game. In addition, he finished with a usage percentage of 29.3, which ranked in the top 20 of the NBA. Brad Stevens has done wonders with this team and will figure out more ways to get IT4 more involved than he already is.Carpenter on Irving: Health questions surrounding Irving are legit -- his history of major injuries, plus the wear and tear of a trip through the NBA finals and then the Olympics -- so his ADP has dropped to 15th. Thats a pretty fair spot for him, so I consider him a real steal at No. 21 in this draft. He doesnt fill any one category freakishly well, but he has the skills to be a top-10 player, which makes him an intriguing upside value pick in the second half of the second round in most formats.Rosenstein on Horford: Boston has been in major need of a star for years, and the Celtics finally got one in 2016 with Al Horford. I like his potential in Brad Stevens offense, where the ball will go through big men a ton. Although his ceiling isnt super high, Horfords floor is, and I like knowing exactly what Ill get from my starting center.Tedesco on Bledsoe: Counting on a (hopefully healthy) Eric Bledsoe to win the Great Phoenix Backcourt Battle, Pt. II. I love Devin Booker, but his rise wont mean Bledsoe cant produce, and if Knight isnt on the move, then it at least looks like hell be the odd man out in this Suns guard triangle.Ramsay on Thompson: Everybody knows what Klay Thompson can do. Hes a heckuva shooter and scorer. Theres some concern that Kevin Durant will take some of Klays shots this season. I get that. But one thing about Klay: He seems to get a lot of early-offense points. He gets down the floor quickly and finds those early-in-the-shot-clock 3s. I think hell still get a lot of those, even with Durant on the floor.McCormick on Gobert: I consider my selections of Andre Drummond and Gobert related, given that I took this portion of the draft to focus on securing elite rebounding assets, as the Detroit big led the NBA in rebounding last season, with Gobert finishing sixth. Gobert specifically nets me a strong blocks commodity, as this is a uniquely scarce stat and one he can help fuel for my roster, given that he has finished third and fourth in blocks per game, respectively, the past two years. I think finding Gobert at this stage of the draft reveals that you can wait to get difference-making bigs and focus on elite guards and wings in the first two rounds.Kaiser on Love: I was already set at center (Karl Anthony-Towns), point guard (Kyle Lowry) and shooting guard (Jimmy Butler) when my pick rolled around in Round 4, and I was happy to land Love, a player who could boost my 3-point abilities from the power forward position while also helping in terms of rebounding and free throw percentage.Wittyngham on Favors: Favors does play in a very slow offense on the Jazz, who rank dead last in pace at 93.3. However, Favors made the most of his opportunities. The Jazz forward finished averaging 16 PPG/8 RPG/1.5 BPG, one of six qualified players to do so last season. Other names on the list? DeMarcus Cousins (eighth pick), Anthony Davis (10th pick) and Karl-Anthony Towns (fourth on the list). Favors also shot above 50 percent from the field, narrowing that list to just KAT. With the 41st pick, that is a lot of value.Carpenter on Jordan: Last season, he averaged 43.0 percent from the free throw line and took 8.0 attempts per game. You dont have to be a math genius to know that is going to wreck your FT% in roto leagues. I usually pass on Jordan, Andre Drummond and Dwight Howard in these formats, because overcoming those numbers can be mighty difficult. However, with charity-stripe masters like Harden, Oladipo, Irving and DeRozan in my pocket already, I actually have a roster that can cover up his free throws pretty well. Plus, Jordans boards and blocks help mitigate my taking fouur guards to start things off. William Perry Jersey. Kaiser on Fournier: Landing Fournier drew some responses from at least one of my fellow draftees and reinforced the fact that Im not the only one with high hopes for the Orlando swingman in the post-Victor Oladipo era. Fourniers well-rounded game and ability to score, hit the 3, rebound, pass and steal complemented my other four starters very well and solidified my starting five. The only problem I faced at this point of the draft is that Kyle Lowry was my only point guard, and choosing Fournier over the likes of a solid second point guard such as?Dennis Schroder left me very thin at the point by the time the draft was complete. In retrospect, I might have gone for Schroder or Mike Conley and settled for Devin Booker in Round 6.Engelmann on Dragic: With Wade and Bosh gone, the Miami Heat starting lineup lost two important shot-creators. Deng is gone as well and will be replaced by a player who is not yet comfortable with the ball in his hands (Winslow). Thus, theres little doubt that the Heat will look more to Dragic to run their offense, which should lead to higher PPG and APG averages.Soppe on Rondo: I realize Rondo is a man with a unique set of skills, but after missing out on my elite tier of point guards (one that ends with Eric Bledsoe/Isaiah Thomas), Rondo and Ricky Rubio became my next targets, as I knew that I could add big-time assist/steal numbers and focus elsewhere prior to that. Rondos rebounding numbers for a point guard are also top-notch, and lets not completely dismiss the fact that Rondo has shot 36.2 percent from distance the past two seasons. Is he perfect? No. Is he exactly what my team needed? You bet.Ramsay on Conley: Mike Conley is now the highest-paid player in the NBA. Im hoping he goes out and earns every cent of that $153 million deal. Im looking for more steals, assists and points from him this season.Karabell on Teague: Indianas new point guard is one of the safer choices around after the first few rounds. He always scores and hits 3s and stays healthy. With Chris Paul as my first point and plenty of big men, Teague is a perfect fit.McCormick on Crowder: Ranked No. 49 on the Player Rater last season overall and 14th among small forwards in a breakout effort for the Celtics, Crowder offers major help in steals (he finished 14th in steals per game) and enjoyed career production from beyond the arc. The word for Crowder this season is more minutes at the 4, which would add positional diversity to his already intriguing profile.Tedesco on Knight: I didnt like many of the guys available here, so ... maybe Knight gets traded to the Kings or something and puts up big numbers there?Engelmann on Russell: Some say point guards have the steepest learning curve in the NBA. With Russell having been only 19 years old in his first NBA season, I expect improvements across the board. It helps that a certain ball hog, ahem, has retired, which paves the way for Russell to increase his APG and overall usage. Wittyngham on Turner: Turner is a very high risk, high reward pick. The Indiana Rookie had peaks in his debut season, including a game of 31 points against the Warriors and a streak of 10-plus points in nine straight games. But he also disappeared and had games of very poor shooting. His upside? The Pacers went and signed Al Jefferson. Jefferson can become a mentor to turner and teach him post move scoring and effectively grabbing rebounds. His downside? He could very well fall and not be anywhere near his upside.Engelmann on Parker: NBA players often take a big step forward in production from their rookie season to Year 2. With Middleton gone and Dellavedova being more of a pass-first PG, Parker should see a healthy increase in PPG and FG percentage.Soppe on Booker and Dieng: I selected both players in our first mock, and it is no accident that both are joining Team Soppe again. I took them both a round higher this time around: Im investing with confidence in every draft. Build your team around Cousins, Booker and Dieng, and youve got my seal of approval for 2016. If it goes sideways, at least youve got an easy scapegoat, right?Karabell on Nowitzki: Dirk isnt young, so its understandable that he lasts so long in drafts these days. Except it doesnt make sense. He still scores. Great shooter. Some rebounds. Hes a huge value for where I got him. Dont shy away from the grizzled vets in redraft formats!Soppe on Collison: Although my draft strategy for these first two mocks might not bear it out, I am a supporter of going with an elite point guard in the early going ... but Im not forcing it. Leaving the first three rounds without a ball-handler wasnt the game plan, but once my roster took that form, Collison was the first point guard I put in my queue as someone I had to have. The Kings might not be very good, but they led the league in pace of play last season, and that carries significant upside for fantasy owners. Collison had his second-worst season in assists and set new career lows in number of starts and rebounds ... and he still finished ranked as PG16 on our Player Rater. There is no threat to unseat Collison in Sacramento, and I am absolutely loving the value you can get at his current ADP.Wittyngham on Randle: After a slow start in November last season, Julius Randle averaged or nearly averaged a double-double in each month the rest of the season. Under Luke Walton, he could follow his 2015-16 season with a better one. The thing is, for a big, he does not shoot well, nor does he defend the paint. Hell basically get you a 10-10 every night -- or something close.Carpenter on Wade:: Factoring in his lengthy injury history, age (34) and joining a team with a ball-hog point guard (Rajon Rondo) and a potential scoring star (Jimmy Butler), his ADP of 47 is a bit high for my tastes. But how could I possibly pass him up at 82? Even if he is willing to play second (or even third) fiddle for the Bulls, his efficiency will rise enough to make up for any notable dip in scoring or dimes and less pressure on him physically should help keep him healthier. Dont be afraid to grab him if he slides far enough in your drafts.Rosenstein on Hill: This might be a slight reach, but Hill is one of the most versatile guards in fantasy hoops, and he has a ton of young talent around him in Rudy Gobert, Derrick Favors, Gordon Hayward, Trey Lyles and Rodney Hood. I see his scoring remaining consistent and his assist numbers improving this season in Utah.McCormick on Bradley: Sticking with the theme of larceny, Bradley is another steals maven who actually earned First Team All-Defensive honors last season. With Evan Turners high-usage, ball-dominant skill set in Portland, Bradley should see more minutes and enjoy more touches as a key combo guard for the Celtics this season. Like Crowder, Bradley enjoyed a surge in 3-point production last season and merits interest as a low-cost, high-floor guard this year.Kaiser on Embiid: At pick No. 104, I knew I couldnt wait another round and still get Philadelphias talented center with my next pick at No. 117, so I jumped at the chance at the high-upside player. Although risky, these are the types of players I believe you must take a chance on after pick No. 100, and I was very happy to get Embiid, who has a chance to be a stat-stuffing big man in terms of rebounds, blocks, assists and 3s. He looks great this preseason, and if the mock took place this week, I bet hed go higher than No. 104.Tedesco on Matthews:?It might not be rational, but I believe in Wes Matthews. That Achilles injury is awful, but if Wes bounces back, I like his value here.Engelmann on Gordon: With the Rockets announcing theyll have Harden playing points guard, Gordon will probably not have the ball in his hands a lot, but I expect the DAntoni Rockets to play at a significantly faster pace. Gordon will also certainly have the green light to bomb away on 3s. Given that hes a career 38 percent 3-point shooter, the Rockets seem like the perfect match.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Thats him, the man who changed international basketball. Willie Snead IV Jersey . Hes the one who single-handedly beat the United States on its own soil nearly 30 years ago, stoking the ambers that led to the Dream Team.The greatest scorer in the history of the game, by a bunch, hes perhaps the best player to never to slip on an NBA jersey.Except for his size, Oscar Schmidt could walk down a city street in the U.S. unnoticed.Not in Brazil.As Schmidt ambles through the corridors of Carioca Arena, his weakened knees preventing him from moving with the grace he once showed on the floor, his countrymen treat him with respect and reverence. Police officers ask if they can have their picture taken with him, young volunteers squeeze in close for selfies and everyone he encounters shows him love. They all want to touch the man dubbed Mao Santo in Portuguese, The Holy Hand.Schmidt accepts it all and happily obliges every request with a smile, and often with a hearty laugh.These Olympics are personal to the Brazilian basketball icon. These games are on his court.I have had a great life, he said before doing TV commentary for Brazils double-overtime loss to Argentina on Saturday.He was a mystery, something of an urban legend until 1987, when during an unforgettable game in Indiana, the heartland of American hoops, Schmidt scored 46 points in the final of the Pan American Games to stun the Americans. It ended a 34-game winning streak for the U.S., its first loss in international competition at home.Schmidt, a cocky shooters shooter with remarkable range and little interest in playing defense, scored 35 points in the second half as Brazil overcame a 14-point halftime deficit to stun the U.S. team, which included college stars David Robinson, Danny Manning and coached by Denny Crum.When the game ended, Schmidt stood under one basket and wept with joy as his teammates celebrated. They had done the unimaginable.That game was the best part of my life because we proved to the whole world that it was possible to beat them, the 58-year-old Schmidt said. And we were afraid to lose by 50.At that time, there had been discussion inside the U.S. basketball program about possibly using professionals in upcoming Olympics. And when the Americans were beaten by the Soviet Union the following year at the Seoul Games and finished with a bronze, the U.S. decided it was time to bring in the big boys.Four years later, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Charles Barkley, Larry Bird and their All-Star teammates pummeled the competition in Barcelona while inspiring the rest of the world to shoot higher.Schmidt, who scored 24 against that squad, takes personal satisfaction for his role in basketballs global growth.Yeah, of course I do, he said, his voice rising with pride. When we beat them, everybody saw it and said, if they can win, we can win. So they put the Dream Team together.The Americans exacted revenge on Schmidt in Spain, pounding Brazil 127-83 and winning by an average of 43.8 points per game on their way to a gold medal.That was the best team Ive ever seen play, said Schmidt, one of the Olympic flag bearers in the opening ceremony. They were something. The only players I think could make that team are Kobe, Shaquille and LeBron.And maybe Schmidt, who rejected overtures by NBA teams to play in Europe and on five Olympic teams for Brazil from 1980-1996. He was drafted by the New Jersey Nets in 1984, but played in Italy, where he routinely scored 50 in a game.When he got into a zone, with his size at 6-8 and his mentality, once he got going, he was one of the toughest guys you would ever want to go up against, said former Australian Olympian Andrew Gaze, who relishes the chance to catch up with his good friend. I think if he came through in a later generation, he would have been very successful in the NBA. But back when he was at his best, there were very few international players. The NBA wasnt really considering international players the way they are now.Schmidt helped open the door for non-U.S. players, and there were 100 on NBA rosters to start last season. And the American stars can thank the Hall of Famer, too, for getting them inside the five Olympic rings.Unofficially credited with scoring over 49,000 career points -- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had 38,387 -- Schmidt is the Olympic leader with 1,093, nearly 800 more than Carmelo Anthony, who became Team USAs career leader during these games.Schmidt chuckled when reminded of the disparity before turning serious.But hes going to win three times gold medals. I would change everything, every point -- not that Pan American Games -- but the rest for a medal in the Olympics, said Schmidt, who finished fifth three times. We had two good chances, not to get a medal, but a chance to win the Olympics. We came very close, but life is like that. You cant have everything. Terrell Suggs Jersey . The showiest items on Calgarys lot were forwards Mike Cammalleri and Lee Stempniak. Both will be unrestricted free agents this summer. Brent Urban Jersey . LUCIE, Fla. . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.SYDNEY, Australia -- New Zealand opened the Rugby Championship with a commanding 47-29 victory over Australia on Saturday, extending its dominance over its trans-Tasman rival and spoiling Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzies first game in charge. Despite missing star flyhalf Dan Carter through injury, the All Blacks always looked in control against a mistake-prone Australia. Ben Smith scored a hat trick of tries, and Aaron Cruden, Richie McCaw and Conrad Smith also crossed in a bonus-point win for the world champions at Sydneys Olympic stadium. Will Genia and James OConnor scored tries for the hosts. The All Blacks will retain the Bledisloe Cup -- a trophy contested annually between the Australasian rivals -- for the 11th straight year with a victory next week in Wellington. "I am obviously very happy with the performance," All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said. "Its not every day that you can come here and get 40 odd points. Its important to be a winning team, but youve got to keep humble and your feet on the floor because youve got to win again next week. "The Bledisloe Cup, you have to win twice, so we havent done anything yet. Weve only done a small part of the job, but until we win two, we dont win it." On this performance, McKenzie will need a vast improvement from his players if they are to have any chance of competing in the four-team Rugby Championship, which also features South Africa and Argentina. "Every time you lose a game its disappointing," McKenzie said. "We were level pegging there for some time in the game, but you have to respect possession. "We didnt control the ball and they were able to play and do some of the things theyre good at, and you pay a price for that." Australia captain James Horwill said his team paid a heavy price for its mistakes. "Theyre very good. They show it by the way they play, the way they capitalize on turnovers, and they understand the way they want to play because they have done it for a long time together," he said. "They are No. 1 in the world for a reason." As was the case in the lost series to the British and Irish Lions in June and July, the Wallabies made its cause difficult with numerous individual errors, giving the visitors frequent scoring opportunities. Stephen Moores knock-on in the opening minutes gave the All Blacks an early opportunity to pressure the Wallabies goal-line defence. It was a chance they eagerly grasped, with Aaron Cruden getting on the outside of James OConnor and flicking a one-handed pass for Ben Smith to cross unchallenged for a converted try after four minutes. The Wallabies were given a penalty chance when Kieran Read barged into Rob Simmons off a high midfield kick. Center Christian Lealiifano made no mistake to narrow the deficit to 7-3. Australia closed to within a point on 12 minutes through Lealiifano after referee Craig Joubert penalized New Zeealand captain Richie McCaw for playing the ball while off his feet at the ruck. Sam Koch Jersey. Both teams traded penalties before a poor attempted clearance by Lealiifano was charged down by Cruden, with the flyhalf able to score with ease for a 17-12 lead. The home teams task was made harder when Jesse Moggs clearance kick failed to find touch in the 33rd minute. After several phases close to the Wallabies line, Aaron Smith fired a wide pass that eventually allowed the returning McCaw to dive over in the corner to make it 22-12. "For Richie to come back after having the break and everyone doubted him. To get through the 70 minutes like he did just shows the character of the bloke once again, so hopefully there wont be any more doubters," Hansen said. The Wallabies received a lifeline after the All Blacks fumbled the ball on its line-out. It was swooped on by Michael Hooper, who passed the ball for Will Genia to sprint 60 yards and beat Cruden, Ben Smith and Israel Daggs attempted tackles to score under the posts. Lealiifano added the extras to narrow the score to 22-19. In keeping with the see-saw nature of the first half, the Wallabies were caught offside in the final minute of the half, giving Cruden a simple penalty shot for the visitors to lead 25-19 at halftime. The Wallabies started the second half brightly and Lealiifano again drew the Wallabies within three points with another penalty. In the 51st minute, the Wallabies conspired to allow the All Blacks score its fourth try, and a bonus point, when Mogg dropped off Conrad Smith, allowing the centre to dash over under the posts for a 32-22 lead. The hosts misery was compounded when the All Blacks won possession on Australias scrum feed in the 57th minute and quickly played the ball wide. Ben Smith found space to dive over in the corner to end the match as a contest. Quade Cooper was brought on from the bench in the 61st minute, his first international appearance since September 2012. The Queensland Reds playmaker was greeted by a chorus of boos from the large All Black supporter contingent among the crowd of 68,765 people. Cruden continued to impress, slotting a penalty in the 66th to bring up 40 points for the All Blacks. "People have questioned Aaron Cruden at times at this level, and I think he showed tonight that hes a true international player of world-class ability and he led the team very well," Hansen said. Ben Smith scored his deserved hat trick in the 71st, latching on to a spilt ball at a ruck to dash to the line. Australia scored a late consolation try when OConnor found space out wide in New Zealands defensive line. ------ Scores: New Zealand 47 (Ben Smith 3, Aaron Cruden, Richie McCaw, Conrad Smith tries; Cruden 3 conversions, 3 penalties, Beauden Barrett conversion) def. Australia 29 (Will Genia, James OConnor tries; Christian Lealiifano 2 conversion, 5 penalties). Halftime: 25-19.

Suspected match-fixers will be forced to hand over mobile phones and electronic devices under new plans to curb corruption. Calvin Johnson Jersey . The ICCs Anti-Corruption Unit would gain the powers to download personal messages, including through WhatsApp and Snapchat, under proposals that could be agreed by the ICC early next year.As the world changes and as people use different means of communicating with each other through social media - Whatsapp, Snapchat, all of these things - we have to keep ahead of these things, said Ronnie Flanagan, the head of the ACU. One extension [of ACU powers] we might seek is that, instead of just asking for a players billing records, might we actually, like tennis, seek the ability to take the devices and download them to see what communications had been made upon them.The increased powers would mirror those of the Tennis Integrity Unit, who monitor suspicious activity across mens and womens tennis. The ACU currently has the authority to request information from players being investigated, including mobile phone records.It is understood that the ACU has already had some informal conversations with members of the ICC Board, attempting to win support for the increased powers. If the board approves, it is likely there would then be a consultation with the Federation of International Cricketers Associations, and the three Test countries - India, Pakistan and Zimbabwe - not represented by FICA. The proposals would then be voted by the ICC Board at a quarterly meeting - most likely in February or April next year.The ICC is also investigating other ways to curb corruption. The ACU is consulting experts about how to use the deep web (parts of the web not indexed by search engines) and the dark web (parts of the web that require specific software or authorisation) to find evidence of corruption.In order to thwart the intentions of corruptors, we are constantly exploring how they attempt to communicate with players, including the use of various social media networks, and indeed including what some describe as the dark web or the deep web, said Flanagan.In the United Kingdom, the ACU is close to finalising a memorandum of understanding to share information with the National Crime Agency, which will make it easier to identify suspicious activity.Flanagan also emphasised the need for cricket to work with other sports against corruption. These corruptors do not consign themselves to one sport. They are interested in any game.The recent news that Alviro Petersen has been charged with six anti-corruption offences by Cricket South Africa highlights crickets continuing struggle against corruption.I think there is no ground for complacency whatsoever, Flanagan said. These corruptors have demonstrated ingenuity and demonstrated determination to keep trying to get at players and match officials who are bound by our code of conduct. Therefore we must be continually active in thwarting their intentions and we must do that by making the very best use, not just of international resources involved in anti-corruption, but also of the domestic resources involved in anti-corruption. And making sure we co-ordinate our efforts and share that effort across cricket, wherever it is played and at whatever levels it is played.The ACU has redoubled attempts to convince players of the need to come forward with evidence after Chris Cairns was acquitted in London last year. Since the end of that case, the ACU has worked a) to remind them of their continuing obligation to report suspected approaches to them but b) to reassure them that we will treat them sensitively and look after their interests when they come forward, to discharge the responsibilities that code of conduct places upon them, Flanagan said.Flanagan believes that working closely with gambling companies is an important tool for the ACU, although this was not possible in countries - notably India - in which gambling is illegal.We have a very good relationship with the legitimate betting industry, so if there are artificial spikes [in betting odds] we are made aware of them very quickly - or, alternatively, if we have intelligence that a given game might be susceptible, then we can do something about that proactively and monitor when it is happening.We do have the problem in cricket of the black-market gambling industry, largely in the Indian sub-continent. We are taking strides to try and penetrate that more and more but it is not easy. But equally we cannot assume that, because the legitimate betting market is heavily regulated, that it is not problematic and that problems cant arise there. Of course they can.Flanagan also defended the powers the ACU were granted by the ICC. There has never been any question of me being denied resources required to deal with the problem, he said. People often suggest we should do more things which would tend to make us more like a police force, with the powers the police force has. Were not a police force, we dont have the powers of a police force, and we dont seek the powers of a police force. We have only the powers vested in us that the international board gives us. They give us those powers after consultation with the players and I think thats absolutely right.A review of the ACUs work was presented to the ICC board last year. It identified the need for the ACU to adapt to deal with softer targets - including domestic games, and Associate and womens matches - and for domestic boards to collaborate more with each other. Nick Bellore Jersey .S. Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf.

Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. http://www.cheapdetroitlionsjerseysauthe...k-bawden-jersey .Y. - Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has earned NHL first star of the week honours after winning in his first three appearances of the season. Western Michigan started getting some respect beyond the Mid-American Conference when it slipped past a Big Ten team to start the season, then thumped another one two weeks later. On Monday the AP Top 25 poll voters took notice of the Broncos and slotted them at No. 24 -- the first national ranking in school history.Hardly a perennial MAC power, Western Michigan is 6-0 for the first time since 1941, including a takedown of Northwestern 22-21 in the opener and a 34-10 win over Illinois on Sept. 17.The Broncos continue their potential dream season when they travel to play Akron (4-2, 2-0 MAC) on Saturday.This is what we wanted as a community, coach P.J. Fleck said. Its wonderful for Western Michigan University, its wonderful for Kalamazoo, our student body and our players. They deserve all the credit in the world.Two of Western Michigans stars, quarterback Zach Terrell and receiver Corey Davis, started as freshmen together on a 1-11 team in 2013.Davis broke the school record last week with his 40th touchdown catch, surpassing the mark set by former Green Bay Packer Greg Jennings. He finished the 45-30 win over Northern Illinois with six catches for 122 yards and two touchdowns -- including a terrific one-handed grab of a Terrell end zone pass that was the top play of the day on ESPN. Hes got 36 receptions for 589 yards, and his eight touchdowns is second in the FBS.Western Michigan has established a website to promote Davis candidacy for the Heisman Trophy, with Fleck saying, its our obligation to make sure the nation knows.Terrell has been almost as good, with a 71 percent completion rate (4th in the nation), 15 touchdowns and a QB rating of 188.2 (3rd in the nation). A pair of running backs -- Jamauri Bogan and Jarvion Franklin -- have split the majority of the carries, each surpassing the 500-yard mark and scoring five touchdowns apiecce. Calvin Johnson Womens Jersey. .Their athletes are at the top level of this conference, Akron coach Terry Bowden said. Theyve got stars at every position, they play with great confidence and great talent. I dont see any weaknesses on their football team.With all the attention, of course, comes talk that the 35-year-old Fleck -- the youngest head coach in the FBS -- could be a candidate for one of the Power Five coaching jobs expected to open up after the season.AKRONS SUPER SUB: Akron quarterback TraVon Chapman stepped in for injured starter Thomas Woodson for the second straight week last Saturday and did a little bit of everything in the win over Miami (Ohio). The junior was 15 for 29 passing for 174 yards and three touchdowns, and picked up another 80 yards running the ball. The offense managed just 299 yards but kept Miami in check, despite being without its two starting defensive ends. Bowden said the defensive effort was the best of the year so far.THAT GUY LOOKS FAMILIAR: Akrons No. 1 running back to start the season was Warren Ball, who played three seasons at Ohio State and is using his final year of eligibility at the MAC school. Ball, a former four-star prospect from Columbus, rushed for 189 yards on 41 attempts for the Buckeyes, but was overshadowed by Carlos Hyde and then Ezekiel Elliott. He graduated from OSU and enrolled at Akron as a grad student so he could play for the Zips. He played in the first two games, picking up 181 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries, but has not played in the last four because of an unspecified injury.

Virginia Tech doesnt have long to lick its wounds after a surprising loss at Syracuse, but the Hokies could hardly ask for a better motivator to get back to work. Wholesale Jaguars Jerseys . They face longtime rival Miami on Thursday night.The former Big East rivals have played 33 times, with Miami winning 20, including three of the last four. The Hokies (4-2, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) were 21-9 in Thursday night games under former coach Frank Beamer but were 0-3 against the Hurricanes (4-2, 1-2). Miami has lost two straight, to Florida State and North Carolina.In the now wide open Coastal Division race, the game likely qualifies as a must-win.Its very critical, Hokies defensive end Ken Ekanem said. Any ACC opponent is like a championship game, so I think we cant just hype up in our minds. We have to just take it one game at a time, like I said before. Weve just got to focus on going 1-0. Any ACC opponent, especially Miami -- a big rival of ours -- is a big game.Virginia Tech is a half-game behind North Carolina in the Coastal standings but holds the head-to-head advantage against the Tar Heels after a 34-3 victory two weeks ago in Chapel Hill. Pittsburgh also is 2-1 in the division and will host the Hokies next Thursday night.The Hurricanes spent much of the early part of the season in the Top 25 before their recent slide, and with every team in the division having at least one loss, they are far from eliminated in the division championship race.Weve got to just recuperate and just focus in and hone in on the game plan, quarterback Brad Kayaa, who is in his third season as the Hurricanes starter, said this week. It is a short week, so its time to get going.Cant dwell on the last two losses. Just got to get going and get this thing on the road.Running back Mark Walton was not as diplomatic.Right now, its all or nothing, he said. Weve got to try to win out and get our groove back, man.Miami won its last visit to Lane Stadium, on a Thursday night two years ago, 30-6.Both programs are in their first seasons under new coaches, with Mark Richt calling the shots in Miami and Justin Fuente in Blacksburg. Fuente is eager to experience the atmosphere of a Thursday night home game.Im looking forward to taking part in it. Im confident our kids will be ready to go, but weve got a long way to go and a short time to get there and a lot of work to get done this week, Fuente said Monday.Ekanem, meanwhile, wants his teammates to remember the Hurricanes last visit.You cant make it bigger than it actually is. Youve got to keep everybodys head really level, so I think we definitely owe them and weve got to be able to bring it on Thursday, he said.Getting everyone on the same motivational page will be critical, quarterback Jerod Evans said.We have to bring our own energy, our own emotion, and this is a very team-oriented sport, he said. We have most guys bringing it and some guys not, and that can lead to certain things. As far as bringing our own stuff, we as a unit didnt bring it all the way.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. Ronnie Harrison Jersey . -- Theres already a lot of talk about the Oct. 23 restrictor plate race at Talladega Superspeedway and how it could shake up NASCARs Chase for the Sprint Cup.?But first, theres the small matter of actually locking into the 16-driver field for the Chase. And even though NASCARs 10-race elimination style playoff doesnt start until September, Saturday nights Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway may ultimately have an impact on the Chase grid.?With frequent multi-car crashes, the plate races often produce big swings in the point standings. Daytona was no exception; several drivers who were already in a precarious position in terms of the Chase got swept into a 22-car big one on Lap 90 of 160.?Jamie McMurray triggered the massive pile-up, and he also took one of the biggest hits in terms of the Chase. McMurray entered the Daytona weekend on the bubble among drivers who havent scored a race win in 2016, and the 34th-place finish Saturday knocked him out of the top 16 if the Chase started today.?Conversely, Tony Stewart solidified his position in the Chase despite crashing with 11 laps remaining to be classified 26th. That still put Stewart nine places ahead of Brian Scott and helped him move ahead of Scott into 30th place in the point standings, which is a requirement for him to be Chase eligible, making him one of the evenings big winners.?Because the Chase field is determined first by race winners, one spectacular Saturday night or Sunday afternoon could land a surprise driver in the field. With Stewart making it into the top 30, there are now 11 race winners this year all in the top 30, currently leaving five positions open through points.? ?Tony winning last week takes up another spot, so it makes us have to work a little bit harder, said Kyle Larson, who helped his cause with a sixth-place finish in his Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet. Its going to be tough making the Chase if we dont get a win, so Im happy about the points we earned tonight.?Heres a look at how several drivers vying for a place in t
