Each week, ESPN. Al Horford Jersey AFL draft expert Christopher Doerre - aka Knightmare - casts his eye over the countrys best junior footballers to give readers an early insight into the next generation of AFL stars.As well as attending live games, Doerre pores through match vision, analyses the stats and talks to industry sources to ensure he can offer the most insightful draft analysis.Aside from the weekly wrap, Doerre will also unveil his power rankings at the end of each month.And as we get closer to Novembers national draft, Doerre will also predict who goes where with his annual phantom draft.Player focusJoshua Begley was unsuccessful in making this years Vic Metro squad, not representing Vic Metro during the AFL Under-18 Championships. He did however receive an invite to this years AFL Draft Combine, one of 80 to receive an invite.Making a name for himself as a forward, kicking 16 goals from his first four games this season, Begley has since showed prowess playing primarily through the midfield. Begley has featured in the bests for Eastern in eight of a possible 12 games and has 23 goals to his name so far this season.Against the Geelong Falcons, he had his lowest disposal total in any game in which he has not kicked a goal this season, with 16 touches, eight contested possessions, eight tackles, five clearances and one score assist for the game.Playing through the midfield against Geelong, Begley lined up at stoppages against one of next years gun midfield prospects in James Worpel, overall breaking even, with Worpel like Begley not achieving his regular numbers through the midfield.Begley at 187cm, 87kg is already very strongly developed physically and is someone who has a presence to him out on the field. He wins first possession at stoppages, tackles aggressively, marks strongly overhead and crashes packs.Analysis?Begley has proven to be an effective ball user this season. He is not only a good finisher around goal and from set shots but also hits his targets by foot over a variety of distances. At stoppages he also dishes out well by hand to teammates.His most pressing deficiencies are a lack of pace, agility and endurance. Begley seems to have dropped some weight and covers the ground better than he did earlier in the season, but further work is still needed. He also often feels more influential earlier in games, which again comes back to his fitness base.With a few pre-seasons into him, the hope would be that he develops an AFL body and improves his running ability while still retaining his power game that makes him an impactful player.Begley at this stage is seen as someone who will come under consideration in this years draft from the third round onwards.Victorian prospect watchTAC CupHugh McCluggage seems to get a mention every week, and it should come as no surprise when looking at his numbers. This week he had 37 disposals, 16 contested possessions, five marks (one contested), four clearances, eight inside 50s, two goals and three score assists.With the AFL earlier in the week rejecting Essendons request for Will Brodie to play for their VFL side, it seems likely that Brodie is Essendons preference with what is expected to be the first overall selection in this years AFL draft. This may place McCluggage in the sights of Brisbane, Fremantle, Carlton, Gold Coast or Richmond towards the top of the draft if he has a strong finals campaign and impresses at the AFL Draft Combine.Jarrod Berry, who was touted as a potential top-10 selection coming into the season, was impressive on return from injury with 17 disposals, six marks (two contested), three goals, four behinds and two score assists.Berry has in the past made a name for himself off half back and through the midfield. Seeing Berry have an impact as a forward just adds another string to his bow and only increases his draftability. Berry will be a player to watch during the TAC Cup finals. With continued strong play he has the ability to push up draft boards.Mitch Lewis, a 197cm key forward who can rotate through the ruck, had a breakout game for Calder. He had 33 disposals, 13 marks (two contested), 12 hitouts, four goals and two score assists in a game he will be looking to build on.Top-ager Joshua Patullo, a 198cm ruckman, had a team high 29 disposals, 22 contested possessions, five marks (three contested), 27 hitouts and 12 clearances along with one goal and one score assist. This was an eye-opening performance through the ruck by Patullo for Gippsland and a game that will likely have spiked the interest of state league clubs looking for a ruckman with scope to develop.Myles Poholke showed great power at stoppages and around the ground for Dandenong with 29 disposals, 13 contested possessions, five marks (one contested), five tackles, four clearances, six inside 50s, one goal and two score assists.Sam Fowler, a 169cm forward, impressed playing this week primarily through the midfield with 28 disposals, 13 contested possessions, six tackles, six clearances, seven inside 50s and two goals.Brodie Romensky has stood out all year for Western. He was agains impressive with 38 disposals, 17 contested possessions, seven tackles, seven clearances, seven rebound 50s and one score assist.Romensky leads the TAC Cup this season, featuring in the bests 11 times from his 12 games. At 189cm, he is one of the better ball winners in the TAC Cup. He is one of a group of midfielders who could be viewed as unlucky not to receive a draft combine invite.Jaidyn Stephenson, a bottom-age forward for Eastern, was rightly named best on ground with 14 disposals, four marks (two contested), four tackles, five goals and two score assists. For a 188cm forward, Stephenson is exceptionally clean when the ball hits the deck and he showed more of the same against Geelong.His set shot-goal kicking was reliable. Impressive at one stage was his movement in traffic to avoid would-be tacklers. It was also pleasing to see Stephenson take a pack mark, then play on quickly, run for 15 metres and find the inside 50m target by foot.Eastern teammate Sam Hayes, a ruckman/key forward who was the only bottom-ager to make this years under-18 All Australian team, impressed through the ruck with 18 disposals, seven marks (two contested) and 33 hitouts.?At centre bounces Hayes felt for much of the game to be on top. What was particularly impressive was his marking, taking a pack mark with his arms raised high and a one-on-one contested marking situation where Hayes read the flight earlier than his opponent and smartly took front position. The signs are there from Hayes to push for selection early draft in 2017.Tate Short, a 188cm forward/midfielder for Eastern, had an impactful 14 disposals, six contested possessions, four marks (one contested), six tackles, three clearances and two goals. Rightly finishing in the bests for Eastern. His speccie just before quarter-time had spectators up on their feet and was one of the moments of the game.Bottom-age midfielder Jack Higgins proved a match-winner for Oakleigh with 34 disposals, 11 contested possessions, 11 marks (one contested), three goals and four score assists.Taylin Duman, a 193cm, 75kg versatile midfielder, impressed with 26 disposals, 12 contested possessions, three clearances and two score assists. This is on the back of a game with 34 disposals, 14 contested possessions, seven marks, three clearances, one goal and one score assist the previous week.Luke Bunker who has been arguably Northerns best midfielder in the matches he has played this year, had 34 disposals, 16 contested possessions, nine tackles, 10 clearances and three goals. He also contributed consistently during the under-18 Championships for Vic Metro through the midfield. Bunker is another of those unlucky midfielders not to receive a draft combine invite.Mason Blakey backed up his strong effort off half-back last weekend with 28 disposals, five marks, five tackles and four rebound 50s this week.Corey Lyons through the midfield for Sandringham had 32 disposals, 17 contested possessions, six marks (one contested), seven clearances, five inside 50s and one goal. Lyons also did not receive a draft Combine invite, despite consistent strong performances for Sandringham.Hamish Brayshaw continues his strong recent form with 24 disposals, 10 contested possessions, 10 marks (three contested), 10 tackles, four inside 50s, nine rebound 50s, one goal and one score assist.Brayshaw is making a late season push for selection in this years draft coming off 30 disposals, nine marks, one goal and 23 disposals, seven marks and four goal games in his two previous games.Todd Marshall continues his push for selection inside the top 10 with 17 disposals, seven marks (three contested), seven tackles, three goals and one score assist.VFLNorthern Blues 177cm forward Hisham Kerbatieh -- who was overlooked in last years draft -- impressed against Werribee in arguably his best game of the season with 21 disposals, three marks, three tackles and five goals.Jordan Russell, 30, had 34 disposals and eight marks (one contested) off back flank. The former Blue and Pie has this season in the VFL featured in the bests 12 of 15 games. This is an equal competition best with midfielder Michael Gibbons. Russell while not as explosive as he was earlier in his career has this year looked arguably as good as he has since his 2010 season. His leadership, footskills and intercept marking all are features of his game.Russell, while an unlikely draft prospect at the age of 30, would be a suitable rookie choice based on his form this year for a club either looking for some stability and leadership down back, or a contending team looking for some immediate depth.South Australian prospect watchSANFLLeagueZac OBrien, a former Brisbane midfielder, was West Adelaides best in a loss with 37 disposals, 21 contested possessions, 12 tackles, 14 clearances and one score assist. He has played an important role for West Adelaide through the midfield this year and is one of several state league midfielders good enough to push for an AFL list position.Arguably the best state league key forward, Brett Eddy, had another big game with 16 disposals, eight marks (one contested), seven goals, three behinds and two score assists. Eddy has the game to be a quick fix for a club looking for someone who can step into a best 22 from day one and contribute.ReservesJake Comitogianni, another midfielder to miss out on a national combine invite continued his strong form through the midfield with 31 disposals, 10 contested possessions, three clearances and two score assists.Forward Tyson Stengle continues to hit the scoreboard with 12 disposals, four marks and three goals.ColtsJack Graham, who won this years Larke Medal for best performer during the AFL Under-18 Championships, had 23 disposals, eight contested possessions, nine tackles, six inside 50s, two goals and one score assist. While Graham is one of this years better performed draft prospects, his unreliable footskills are likely to see fall outside the first round and possibly somewhere in the second round.Ben Jarman continues his push for selection as a father-son prospect with 23 disposals, 17 contested possessions, four marks, seven tackles, eight clearances and one goal. Jarman has built a reputation for his composure with ball in hand, skills and finishing ability around goal. Showing that he can win the contested ball and win clearances at 175cm as he did on the weekend will serve him well and only heighten his draftability.Western Australian prospect watchWAFLLeaguePossible West Coast father-son selection Jake Waterman was impressive in his first WAFL League game with 15 disposals, four marks and five goals. This came after a strong first WAFL Reserves game last week when he had 19 disposals, nine marks and three goals.The 189cm Waterman is not seen as an early draft selection but on the back of his recent performances and the ease with which he has stepped up to the plate against more mature opposition, he is making an increasingly compelling case to West Coast for selection.ColtsFlashy forward Shai Bolton again had an impact with 17 disposals (16 kicks), nine inside 50s, three goals and three behinds. Bolton is an explosive forward who makes things happen with ball in hand. With further strong performances, clubs may look at Bolton with selections late in the first round.Projected top-10 selection Tim English as he does so often, had an impact around the ground with 24 disposals, 11 marks, 15 hitouts and one goal.Possible top-five selection Sam Petrevski-Seton continued his exciting form with 28 disposals, seven marks, six inside 50s and one goal.West Australias other ruckman Jeremy Goddard had his strongest impact around the ground for the season with 21 disposals, three marks, 30 hitouts and one goal. Goddard is a powerful ruckman who typically takes advantage of opponents at stoppages. Seeing Goddard expand his game and find more of the footy around the ground and kick a goal is a positive step in the right direction in his development.Division two states (Tasmania, Northern Territory, NSW/ACT, Queensland and Northern Academy) prospects watchBrisbane AcademyJacob Allison, Brisbanes promising 194cm utility, had one of his better games for the season with 20 disposals, eight marks, three inside 50s, four rebound 50s and one goal.Declan Watson as a key defender also continues to show promise with 13 disposals, five marks and three rebound 50s.Gold Coast AcademyBottom-age prospect Jacob Dawson continued to show promise through the midfield with 24 disposals, seven tackles and eight clearances.Brad Scheer was again productive with 17 disposals, five marks, three tackles and one goal.Jack Bowes, playing as a forward impacted the scoreboard with 12 disposals, three marks, five tackles and three goals. Semi Ojeleye 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. Larry Bird Jersey .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. . 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. Complaints about earthworks at Eagle Farm racecourse have come to a head with trainer Robert Heathcote scratching short-priced favourite Oberland to protect punters.Oberland would have been odds-on in a race at the Sunshine Coast on Friday night but Heathcote feared the horse would not perform to his best because of the noise from earthworks next door to his Eagle Farm stables.First starter Takarakka was also withdrawn from a maiden at Heathcotes request.Heathcote took the unusual step when another of his horses Poetic Show, a short-priced favourite, struggled into fourth place at the Ipswich meeting early on Friday.The five-time Brisbane premier trainer started the season in great fashion with 40 winners but since November has had just four winners from his past 50 runners.Heathcote said while all stables went through slumps his had started the day the earthworks began.I was willing to take it on the chin. Butt Poetic Shows run was the last straw. Red Auerbach Jersey. She did exactly what all my horses have been doing - racing flat, Heathcote said.I have an obligation to the punters to present my horses in the best possible fashion to win. Especially when they are going to be odds-on.The simple fact is there was a din beside my stables all day and the horses were agitated. It takes plenty out of them. You try resting with a huge noise about 15 metres away.Heathcote said the works had stopped for the Christmas break and he hoped would move away in the New Year.The earthworks have nothing to do with the infield stabling which has been idle since the tragic death of two workers in October.Trainers were expecting to be in the new stabling this week but there is no indication when it will be finished.

ATLANTIC CITY, N. Austin Corbett Hoodie .J. -- The closing of the Trump Taj Mahal casino on Monday will cost thousands of workers their jobs and bring a final end to Donald Trumps legacy in the seaside resort, but it will also mean the closure of what was once one of the premiere destinations for poker outside Las Vegas.The poker room in the casino on Atlantic Citys boardwalk long ago lost its luster, but in its heyday drew packed crowds of gamblers from around the region and country to dozens of tables around the clock.Around lunchtime Wednesday, the 24 remaining tables were empty. A security guard and two soon-to-be unemployed employees milled about, but there were no dealers, no chips being shuffled, no cards flying through the air.After opening in 1993 when poker was legalized in New Jersey, the Taj became the center of the East Coast poker world, certainly the legal poker world, said Brian Koppelman, who used the mix of locals, tourists and pros as inspiration for scenes in his 1998 film Rounders.It was the place that you could go play without violating any laws and where, if you were someone who wanted to get better at poker and study the best players, you were there, Koppelman said. If you were someone who wanted to hustle people, you could go there and find tourists to hustle.Koppelman, creator of TVs Billions on Showtime along with Rounders writing partner David Levien, said the scene in the film where Matt Damons character plays for more money than he should against poker legend Johnny Chan was inspired by him sitting at a table at the Taj with brash World Series of Poker champion Phil Hellmuth.Koppelman and Levien traveled there for research after deciding to make a film about the New York underground poker scene. When they shot there, none of us slept. We were shooting and then just playing cards.The steady stream of players from the New York and Philadelphia region made the room popular, but it was the U.S. Poker Championship in 1996 that turned it into a destination. Some of the games top players laid down $10,000 in what was the first tournament on the East Coast on the same financial level as the World Series of Poker.When we went there, the Taj Mahal poker room was kind of a mess, said former World Series of Poker tournament director Jack McClelland, who Trump hired to launch the tournament that was broadcast on ESPN. They ran the poker room like you run the blackjack pit. ... It was just a mess.McClelland says the tournament organizers helped to change some of the problems, and he said he enjoyed working for Trump, for whom he plans to vote in November.Connecticuts Foxwoods Casino had already begun splitting up the lucrative New York market, but it was the opening of Atlantic Citys Vegas-style Borgata casino in 2003 that started the end of the Taj poker room. It began drawing most of the citys big action, and the opening of poker rooms in Pennsylvania, Delaware and later Maryland took away most of the rest. The room closed for renovations in February 2015 and didnt reopen until this past May, less than two months before workers at the casino went on strike.Kevin Thompson, 38, was walking through the room on Wednesday, looking for one last game. When that didnt happen, he reminisced with a reporter about the good times. A full room. An attached horse racing and keno lounge. A place where the locals played and staffers treated you like family.There was always something to do. You could always enjoy yourself here, he said. Im going to miss it a lot. Sad, its real sad.---Follow Cornfield at Cheap Browns Hoodies Jerseys .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. Denzel Ward Hoodie . -- Whether Jeremy Hill deserves a prominent role in LSUs offence this early in the season is a matter for debate. . Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half. Dallas, Texas ?- Quarterback Austin Allens five-yard run in the second overtime period was the last of a series of big plays during an electric fourth quarter and overtime that led the Arkansas Razorbacks to a 41-38 upset win at TCU on Saturday. For winning on the road against a ranked opponent for the third straight time, and for ending TCUs 14-game home winning streak that was the third-longest in the nation, Arkansas earned the Football Writers Association of America National Team of the Week honor for games of the weekend of Sept. 10.Arkansas (2-0) fell behind 28-20 late in the fourth quarter after TCU rallied to score 21 unanswered points. But with 1:49 left, Allen was a perfect 4-for-4 passing on the ensuing drive, including a 16-yard score to wide receiver Keon Hatcher. On the two-point conversion to tie, Hatcher completed a nifty reverse-pass to Allen in the end zone with just over a minute to play.The Razorbacks then weathered a TCU drive when Dan Skipper blocked what would have been a 28-yard game-winning field goal to send the game into overtime. After trading touchdowns, TCU kicked a field goal on its second overtime possession, setting up Allens game-winning run.We want to keeep you in your seats for four quarters and some, Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema said. Jim Brown Hoodie. . For college football, I think this is everything you could ask for when you talk about the environment we had here tonight, and the competition that was on the field. We wanted to play our type of football. I think the part I stressed to our guys all week was code red. Being able to play at a heightened awareness on the road. They bought into it all week and persevered.Arkansas has now won four straight and eight of its last nine games dating back to last season, including road wins at No. 18 Ole Miss, No. 9 LSU and No. 15 TCU. Over the programs last 19 games under Bielema, the Razorbacks have won five games against ranked teams while unranked.This is the third time for Arkansas to earn National Team of the Week honors and the first time since 2006. The Football Writers Association of America has named a national team of the week since the 2002 season. Members of the 12-person FWAA All-America Committee - plus one fan vote from Twitter - decide the weekly honor.

CLEVELAND -- With Browns rookie quarterback Cody Kessler in concussion protocol, Josh McCown will start Sunday against the New York Giants. James Washington Jersey .Kessler sustained his second concussion since Oct. 23 in Sundays 24-9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, dropping the Browns to 0-11. Coach Hue Jackson does not know when -- or if -- Kessler will return this season, and added that will be determined by the teams medical staff.The third-round pick, 0-8 as a starter, was being dragged down by Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier when he was also hit by Lawrence Timmons. Jackson isnt sure if Kessler suffered the concussion on Timmons blow or when his head hit the ground.McCown replaced him and was roughed up as well by the Steelers, who had eight sacks after entering the game with 13 all season.---For more NFL coverage: and Chukwuma Okorafor Jersey . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record.

PITTSBURGH -- John Lackey fielded phone calls from plenty of interested teams in the offseason. Yet the veteran pitcher opted for the Chicago Cubs.Sure, the money was good. The opportunity was even better.I had some pretty good offers from other people and I chose this one for a reason, Lackey said. Its all here.Looks like it.Lackey worked through five innings, Chris Coghlan hit a three-run triple and the Cubs held off the staggering Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 on Tuesday night. Coghlans second-inning drive off the wall in right-center against Ryan Vogelsong (3-7) gave the NL Central champions all the offense they would need to win for the seventh time in their last eight games. Chicago improved to 101-56, the clubs highest victory total since it won 104 games in 1910.Pittsburgh was eliminated from postseason contention when San Francisco won later Tuesday, ending a run of three-straight playoff appearances.Dexter Fowler added an RBI double for the Cubs. Lackey (11-8) worked around five hits and three walks to win his last regular season start. The 37-year-old finished his 14th season 11-8 with a 3.35 ERA and has looked fresh since a stint on the disabled list to rest his right shoulder. Lackey is 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA since coming off the DL earlier this month.The rest was good for him, manager Joe Maddon said. Hes going into the postseason well rested. Just got to keep these guys sharp.Lackeys next start will be in the playoffs, a time of year the two-time World Series champion knows well. Hes 8-5 with a 3.11 ERA in the postseason and doesnt think Maddon will need to do anything too extravagant to keep him engaged during the lengthy downtime.I dont know about (simulation) games, Lackey said. I can throw a bullpen and be just fine. I dont need to see somebody up there. I know how to throw the ball over the plate.Felix Pena recorded the final two outs for his first career save after Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run single off Justin Grimm to get the Pirates within two. Pena struck out Sean Rodriguez with the bases loaded to end it.Overall we did play pretty well, Maddon said. We got everybody involved, which is good. Theres a lot to be happy with.Vogelsong allowed four runs in five innings and fell to 0-3 with a 9.55 ERA in September. The 39-year-oldd managed to get out of a two-on situation in the first but couldnt in the second. Steelers Official Jerseys. A hit batter and two walks loaded the bases for Coghlan. The outfielder narrowly missed his first career grand slam when the ball landed just below the top of the fence. He sped to third for his second triple since rejoining Chicago in a trade with Oakland in June.Just an unacceptable start, Vogelsong said. No excuses. Just unacceptable.Lackey made sure it stood, though not without some shaky moments. He needed a double play to thwart a potentially big inning in the second and his defense bailed him out when Jordy Mercers line drive with the bases loaded in the fourth went straight to second baseman Munenori Kawasaki, who flipped to second to double off Rodriguez.The Pirates went 2 for 13 with runners in scoring position -- both hits coming in the ninth -- and left 11 men on base.STREAK ENDSPittsburgh reliever Juan Nicasio gave up two runs in the ninth and failed to record a strikeout for the first time in 34 appearances, ending his club-record streak.TRAINERS ROOMCubs: OF Jorge Soler remained in Chicago while dealing with tightness in his side but could rejoin the team in Cincinnati on Friday. Maddon said an MRI on Soler came back negative, but with the division already clinched theres no rush to get Soler back on the field. Side bothers him, nothing horrible, nothing to be highly concerned about, Maddon said. I dont know what we think right now, except that it wasnt bad.Pirates: LF Starling Marte remained out of the starting lineup with back stiffness and grounded out as a pinch-hitter in the fifth. The All-Star has just three plate appearances -- all as a pinch hitter -- since Sept. 5. My brothers are out there battling and I wish I could get out there with them, Marte said.UP NEXT:Cubs: Jake Arrieta (18-7, 2.85 ERA) makes his final start of the regular season. The 2015 Cy Young Award winner is 9-1 with a 1.46 ERA in 12 career starts against the Pirates.Pirates: Rookie Jameson Taillon (4-4, 3.49) faces the Cubs for the second time this season.

SAN DIEGO -- San Diego States Donnel Pumphrey enters whats likely to be his final home game needing 153 yards to pass San Diego native Ricky Williams for second on the NCAAs all-time rushing list. Cheap Stitched Jaguars Jerseys .Pumphrey has 6,127 career yards going into Saturdays home game between his Aztecs (9-2, 6-1 Mountain West Conference) and Colorado State (6-5, 4-3).Williams, who went to San Diegos Patrick Henry High, had 6,279 yards for Texas.Pumphrey is averaging 168.6 yards per game. He needs 271 yards to pass Ron Daynes career record of 6,397 yards.With three games left, including the Mountain West Conference championship game and a bowl game, he would need to average 90.3 yards to pass Daynes mark. Pumphrey is second nationally with 1,855 yards rushing and 12th with 14 rushing touchdowns.What makes Pumphrey stand out?Obviously he has great skills but I think that with his athletic ability its his competitiveness, coach Rocky Long said. Hes one of the best competitors Ive ever been around. He wants to be really, really good all the time. Every day in practice he wants to be really, really good. Every game he wants to be really, really good. He wants to win at everything he does. Hes roommates with Rashaad Penny on the road and they compete in video games.

The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. The Oklahoma City Thunders two worst losses this season -- a 26-point loss to the Golden State Warriors in Kevin Durants first game against his former team last month and a 19-point loss to the Portland Trail Blazers Tuesday night -- share something in common, and its not just that I happened to attend both of them.Those performances were also Oklahoma Citys two worst games of the season in terms of finishing around the basket. That fact has important implications for how teams defend the Thunder and MVP candidate Russell Westbrook -- who had two of his three worst games of the season by game score at Golden State and Portland -- going forward.Oklahoma City lives in the painted areaIn a league obsessed with the 3-pointer, the Thunder have never been that team, and this season -- without Durant -- they are especially anemic from outside. While Oklahoma City ranks in the middle of the pack in attempting 3s, the teams 32.8 percent accuracy ranks 26th in the league.Instead, the Thunders offense relies on beating a path to the rim. Oklahoma City takes a league-high 38.3 percent of its shots in the restricted area, per, Westbrook leads the charge. Only DeMarcus Cousins, at 8.9 per game, has averaged more attempts in the restricted area than Westbrook (8.8).While Westbrook is something of a volume finisher -- his 57.3 percent shooting on those attempts is worse than league average (60.2 percent) -- theyre such good shots that merely attempting them has been a good thing for the Thunder, except against the Warriors and Blazers.Packing the paint against Oklahoma CityThe combination of the Thunders non-shooting and effectiveness getting to the basket leads to an inevitable conclusion: The best way to stop Oklahoma City is to pack the paint defensively, sagging off shooters and creating extra resistance around the rim.Nobody has achieved that better than Portland did Tuesday. After the game, Blazers coach Terry Stotts highlighted his teams presence in the paint -- not just the guy guarding [Westbrook] or the screener, but everybody. I thought that was effective for us.What did that look like?In the play above, Westbrook has drawn a favorable switch, getting matched up against Portland center Mason Plumlee. But the slower Plumlee has reinforcements. All four other Blazers have at least one foot in the paint, including Allen Crabbe playing far off his assignment (Andre Roberson, a 30.4 percent 3-point shooter).With so much help behind him, Plumlee could comfortably play up on Westbrook and force him to shoot a contested jumper that the Thunder guard missed.When Westbrook did get into the paint, he found a big man in his ppath with enough help to recover and defend after a Westbrook pass. Ronnie Harrison Jersey. In this case, Enes Kanter missed a contested attempt over Meyers Leonard.Despite lacking a strong shot blocker, Portland actually has surrendered the leagues second-lowest shooting percentage in the restricted area at 55.8 percent this season. (The Utah Jazz, who host the Thunder tonight, are at 54.9 percent behind the more traditional rim protection of Rudy Gobert.)Against Oklahoma City, the Blazers were able to improve on that strong mark. The Thunder shot 43.2 percent, their season-worst mark, in the restricted area.Portland took advantage of the absence of Oklahoma City shooting guard Victor Oladipo, who leads the team with 51 3-pointers, to pack the paint more than normal. But the Warriors showed earlier this season the ability to generate similar results against a full-strength Thunder roster. Golden State did it by aggressively playing off Roberson and also conceding open 3s to rookie Domantas Sabonis, whos shot 42.4 percent from beyond the arc this season but averaged just one make per game.On the above play, for example, Draymond Green sits between Westbrook and the paint, paying little attention to his man (Sabonis) as Durant defends two Oklahoma City players while still getting in position to help.Can the Thunder beat a packed paint?Oklahoma City can mitigate the effect of aggressive paint-packing with good player movement off the ball, which makes it more difficult for one defender to handle two players.Overall, the Thunder have been reasonably effective offensively with Westbrook on the court, posting a 105.6 offensive rating, which would be good for 11th in the NBA this season. With Westbrook on the bench their offense collapses, averaging just 93.5 points per 100 possessions.Still, as the season goes on Oklahoma City can expect to see more teams following the lead of the Blazers and Warriors. Expect teams to be particularly aggressive packing the paint come the playoffs, when theyll have more time to game-plan for Oklahoma City. Already, NBA.coms John Schuhmann notes that the Thunder have the worst record of any current Western Conference playoff team against the rest of the conferences top eight, in large part because of their poor offense -- with games against Golden State and Portland factoring heavily into that.If Oklahoma City is to have success in the postseason, the team will have to find out a way to pull opponents away from the basket by making enough 3s to make them think twice about packing the paint.

LONDON -- Andy Murray?will take on Novak Djokovic in the World Tour final on Sunday. Mike White Hoodie .The two best players in the world will compete in a straight shootout for the year-end No. 1 ranking in the championship match at the O2 Arena.Seems like a movie story scenario. Its a script, Djokovic said. A romance Ill call it. Bromance, let me be correct.He added: Im really privileged and honored to be part of history tomorrow with Andy. Weve known each other for many years. This is one of the biggest matches we will ever play against each other, so lets enjoy it.In their respective semifinals, Djokovic enjoyed a 6-1, 6-1 blowout against a gassed Kei Nishikori, who was 1-2 in three round-robin matches; Murrays knuckles were bleeding toward the end of a marathon 5-7, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (9) win over Milos Raonic in the earlier match.It was a career-best 23rd straight win for Murray, who isnt letting go of the No. 1 ranking without a fight. He waited seven years and 82 days to obtain the ranking since first reaching No. 2 in August 2009.After reaching his first season-ending final, Murray needed 10 minutes in the ice bath for a second time this week.He had already broken the record for the longest three-set match in Tour finals history on Wednesday, a win over Nishikori that went 3 hours, 20 minutes. The semifinal win over Raonic lasted 3 hours, 38 minutes.Tired, Murray said, summing up his feelings after a 77th victory from 86 matches in 2016. Ive played so much tennis the last few months. Some long matches this week. Ill just give it my best tomorrow. Its gonna be tough.The second and third sets against Raonic had each gone 80 minutes. Murray eventually took his third-match point in an epic, third-set tiebreaker.I had to fight very hard to get over the line, Murray said. I was broken twice serving for the match. That was frustrating, but it was a pretty amazing tiebreaker. There were some great points. I just managed to get the break in the end.That was one of the harder matches Ive played. Three-set matches are never normally this long. I dont expect that, playing someone with a serve like Milos. But there were so many long games and long points.Djokovic, who had already benefited from an extra days rest, finished his job in just 66 minutes with ruthless efficiency -- the most drama in the match occurred when a spectator tried to run on the court.Nishikoris serve was broken six times, with Djokovic making just 12 unforced errors compared to 24 by the Japanese player.The crowd erupted every time Nishikori managed to hold his serve. He looked far less elated with his efforts and trudged off court with his head bowed when it was all over.I started off very well, pretty much executed everything tactically that I planned to do before the match, Djokovic said. Last couple of matches have been pretty much flawless.But it was a battle from the first game for Murray. Raonic won 89 percent of points on his first serve in the first set, having broken the Scot in the 11th game and closed it out in 58 minutes.Murray gave a sarcastic thumbs-up to his team when he retreated to his chair. Seemingly rattled by an earlier time violation at 4-4, he gave chair umpire Damien Dumusois a verbal volley.You gave me a warning, but you didnt give him a warning, he said, turning to the umpire, with whom he has had a couple of other arguments in 2016.Dumusois was the umpire who accused Murray of having no respect in a Monte Carlo semifinal defeat to Rafael Nadal. Murray had lofted a ball toward he umpire -- he was frustrated that Dumusois did not give Nadal a warning for going over the allotted 25 seconds between points.Murray also volleyed a ball with his foot toward Dumusois chair in a Cincinnati semifinal against Raonic.The Scot managed to shake off the incident here, just when Raonic looked to have him on the rocks when he broke for 2-1 in the second set. Murray had slumped down in his chair but burst back to life by breaking to love and letting out a roar with a fist pump.Murray, who had a much easier time beating Raonic in straights in the Wimbledon final, then edged a tiebreaker to level the match.Raonic unexpectedly gifted Murray two breaks, and two chances to serve out the win in the decider, but Murray tightened up and failed to take either.Another tiebreaker was needed to separate these two. Raonic saved two match points and then failed to take one of his own, but he couldnt deny Murray a third time.I have to be proud that I finished the year with giving it every ounce of energy I had, Raonic said at a news conference. Im pretty sure Im going to feel like crap tomorrow.Ill look back at 2016 with a lot of good moments, a lot of pride, a lot to be proud of. Dalton Schultz Hoodie .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. Chris Covington Hoodie . The winner Saturday will remain in the elite 10-team field next year. "We talked about wanting to be disciplined and stick with our game plan and good things will come," Draisaitl said, who had two goals for the victors. . There was no hesitation from the 40th-ranked Pospisil, from Vernon, B.C., who admitted that he cut back on his training sessions over the last few days to conserve energy as the long ATP season finishes next week at the Paris Masters. MILWAUKEE -- Pittsburghs Jameson Taillon remembers Hernan Perez from their days opposing each other in the minors. The rookie right-hander would just as soon forget about him now.Perez drove in three runs with a two-run homer and an RBI single, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers over the Pirates 5-3 on Saturday night after Pittsburgh dealt closer Mark Melancon to Washington.Shifted to third in the batting order because Ryan Braun was sidelined by with right-side tightness, Perez hit a two-run homer in the first off rookie Taillon (2-2).I actually played him coming up with the Tigers in Double-A and Triple-A, Taillon said about Perezs time with Detroit. Im pretty confident I owned him in the minor leagues.Not anymore.Now is when it counts, Taillon said. Hes got me a couple of times.Moved up in the order on Thursday because of Brauns injury, Perez hit a two-run homer off Arizonas Robbie Ray. Perez has seven home runs this season; he had one in 156 games before this year.I feel good right now at the plate, Perez said. I am taking good pitches to swing. Put a good swing on the ball and good things happen.Taillon said that the pitch Perez hit for the home run didnt go where he wanted it.It was a two-seamer that was supposed to run in on his hands, Taillon said. It didnt do too much.With the trading of third baseman Aaron Hill to Boston on July 7, Perez has been playing more often, usually at third, but he has gotten time at short and right field.I feel good right now, getting good pitches to swing at, Perez said. Im putting good swings on the ball and making something happen.Perez is batting .360 with nine runs, three doubles, three home runs and 14 RBI since the All-Star break.Brewers manager Craig Counsell likes what he sees from Perez.Hes the definition of an improving player for me, Counsell said. Being able to slip into that spot and still produce, that says something for sure.Chase Anderson (6-10) gave up an unearned run and four hits in five innings, striking out a season-high seven. Jeremy Jeffress pitched the ninth for his 26th save in 27 chances, allowing Jordy Mercers RBI single.Milwaukee has won eight straight home games against the Pirates and kept two-time All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy on the bench as the Brewers considered trade possibilities.Jung Ho Kangs RBI single in the fourth cut the gap, but Milwaukee opened a 4-1 lead against reliever Jonathan Niese with two outs in the seventh when Scooter Gennett had a run-scoring bloop single and Perezs third hit of the game drove in another run. Cheap Cowboys Hoodies Store. Gregory Polanco hit his 14th homer, an eighth-inning drive off Will Smith. Kirk Nieuwenhuis homered against Neftali Feliz in the bottom half.Nieuwenhuis saved a run in the fourth with a long throw from right that catcher Martin Maldonado caught on the fly. Kang missed the plate with his slide and Maldonado missed his first tag attempt, the tagged a lunging Maldonado for the inning-ending out.FREESE OUTDavid Freese was ejected by plate umpire Marty Foster for arguing balls and strikes before the Brewers came to bat in the fifth. Freese had just struck out swinging. John Jaso replaced Freese at first base.TAILLON DENIEDNieuwenhuis charged Taillons one-hop line drive in the fifth and fired a strike to first baseman Chris Carter to just get Taillon. That would have been the rookies first hit in 12 at-bats.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: Melancon was traded for reliever Felipe Rivero and pitching prospect Taylor Hearn. I get the business side of it, Melancon said. It is what it is. I am just happy I was part of this organization. . C Francisco Cervelli was back in the starting lineup after being helped off the field in the eighth inning of Friday nights game. Gennett was hit by a pitch, and the ball ended up catching Cervelli on his inside right foot. I feel better, Cervelli said. I did a lot of treatment last night. In the moment, I thought it was broke. It was hard. It was the same spot I got hit in Miami.Brewers: Milwaukee C Jonathan Lucroy was not in the starting lineup for Saturday nights game against the Pirates as the Brewers considered trade possibilities. ... Braun, a late scratch, missed his third consecutive game.UP NEXTPirates: LHP Francisco Liriano (6-10) makes his second start this season against the Brewers. He struck out 13 over 6 2/3 innings and won 5-3 on July 21. He struck out 13 over 6 2/3 innings and won 5-3 on July 21. He needs two strikeouts for 1500 in his career. He has lost four of his last five road decisions.Brewers: RHP Matt Garza (1-4, 5.74) makes his ninth start of the season and second against the Pirates since being reinstated from the 60-day disabled list on June 14 with a right lat strain.

"I have been having this neck ache thats been affecting my golf recently," Oyama said. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernicks recent decision to not stand during the national anthem as a way of protesting police killings of unarmed black men has drawn support and scorn far beyond sports. The Associated Press explains how The Star-Spangled Banner became a ritual of American public life, its complicated racial origins and how the song has been used as a form of political resistance.---THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AS A RITUAL OF AMERICAN SPORTThe national anthem and sports first merged in the early 20th century, when The Star-Spangled Banner became part of baseball games. The anthem is played before the start of every U.S. major sporting event, where fans and players are expected to salute the flag by placing a hand over the heart while singing along. Not doing so is considered unpatriotic by some.Its important to remember that a lot of these traditions that we take as timeless or dating back to the founders are pretty recent innovations, said Kevin Kruse, a historian at Princeton University.---BLACK ATHLETES AND POLITICAL PROTESTKaepernicks protest was the latest in a history of actions by black athletes meant to call out the discrepancies between the experiences of people of color and Americas professed ideals, said Penn State historian Crystal Sanders.In 1968, Olympians Tommie Smith and John Carlos lifted their black-gloved fists as the national anthem was played after they won the gold and bronze medals in the mens 200-meter sprint -- a gesture seen as radical and an endorsement of black power. Boxer Muhammad Ali, celebrated as an American hero after his death in June, was arrested in 1967 after his refusal to be drafted into the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War was seen as an act of civil disobedience. Jackie Robinson, who broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball, wrote in his autobiography that he was unable to sing the national anthem or salute the flag.Former Denver Nuggets point guard Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf was suspended by the NBA after refusing to participate in the national anthem pre-game ceremony in 1996. More recently, NBA players including Derrick Rose and LeBron James have worn T-shirts reading I Cant Breathe in reference to Eric Garner, who was killed by New York City police officers in 2014. Last month, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and James opened the ESPY Awards with a message about gun violence against minorities.The outrage were seeing in light of the Kaepernick decision ... is just another example of our countrys lack of a real unnderstanding of what it means to be a person of color in the United States, Sanders said. Mathieu Perreault Stanley Cup Jersey. Wealth, education, attire ... none of that prevents us from being victims of racial discrimination.---WHY THE CONTROVERSY?Kaepernicks decision has outraged some who see his protest as offensive and un-American. It is also an unwelcome distraction for those who view sports as a way to transcend conflicts around race, gender, politics and other uncomfortable subjects in American life.Others have come to his defense, saying his decision to sit out the national anthem and flag salute is protected as freedom of expression under the U.S. Constitution.---HOW THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER WAS BORNWatching the bombing of Fort McHenry while detained on a British ship during the War of 1812, attorney Francis Scott Key was inspired to write The Star-Spangled Banner as he saw the American flag flying overhead in the early morning hours of Sept. 14, 1814. The flags presence signaled the retreat of British ships from Baltimores harbor and the U.S. survival of a battle that lasted 25 hours. The showdown galvanized the young country and the flag became a symbol of determination and victory.The Star-Spangled Banner was popular among the branches of the armed forces throughout the 19th century, but more than a century would pass before the song would become the national anthem. President Woodrow Wilson signed an executive order declaring it so in 1916, and Congress passed an act confirming the order in 1931 that was signed into law by President Herbert Hoover the same year.---CONTROVERSIAL THIRD VERSEKey supported slavery and came from a powerful plantation family in Maryland. His background may have influenced the songs third verse, which includes the lyrics, No refuge could save the hireling and slave/From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.These words have been interpreted as a reference to the Colonial Marines, black recruits to the British forces who fought in exchange for their freedom.Kaepernicks objection to saluting the flag was not related to the third verse of the national anthem, but his protest has brought fresh attention to this forgotten stanza.---Errin Haines Whack covers urban affairs for The Associated Press.

A little more than a month away from the official kickoff to WrestleMania season at the Royal Rumble, WWE presents its final pay-per-view of 2016 Sunday with Roadblock: End of the Line. Chad Thomas Hoodie .If theres one thing the brand extension has taught us over the second half of this year, its that the quality of pay-per-view cards hasnt suffered due to the added content. Its a fact that bodes well for Sundays card from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, despite a somewhat lukewarm buildup overall in the midst of the holiday season.Lets take a closer look at the storylines heading into the six-bout main card.(c) indicates defending championWWE Universal championship:?Kevin Owens?(c) versus?Roman ReignsThe overall buzz for this match has been greatly affected by the fact that both Chris Jericho and Seth Rollins have played as big a part (if not bigger) in this feud with Owens than Reigns has.Reigns, the WWE United States champion, pinned Owens cleanly on Nov. 28 following a spear to earn this title opportunity, and he closed out Mondays go-home episode of Raw by standing over Owens fallen body with both titles hoisted above his head. But outside of that, the storyline hasnt centered that much on Owens and Reigns as individuals, which has had both positive and negative effects.The good news here is that theres real potential for this match to overachieve inside the ring, considering the low expectations coming in, as both superstars can work a fast-paced and physical style. The bad news is that there hasnt been much of a hook, in terms of the storyline, to create an emotional investment in what happens.Owens friendship with Jericho has been extremely hot and cold in recent weeks, and they enter Sunday seemingly once again on the outs. The constant flip-flopping has gone on a bit too long, and it has threatened to water down the great chemistry and energy between them.It also hasnt made much sense within the storyline that Reigns enters this main event title feud still in possession of his U.S. title, which might lead some to believe that an Owens win or a schmoz finish are the most likely outcomes.However it plays out, a Jericho intervention of some kind appears unavoidable. As long as WWE picks a direction and sticks with it, both outcomes have real potential for entertainment; either we get an Owens-Jericho spinoff feud that has money written all over it, or we go back to business as usual with the Jeri-KO comedic heel routine serving as the backbone of Raw each week.WWE Raw womens championship:?Sasha Banks?(c) versus?Charlotte Flair?-- 30-minute Iron Man matchIt doesnt matter the setting or how many times the title has changed hands in the recent months and weeks -- if Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair are going to be sharing the same ring, its must-see TV.Plain and simple. Its a distinction both superstars have more than earned in 2016.With five title changes since July and a number of matches already considered among the greatest in the history of WWE womens wrestling, Banks and Flair have put together a feud thats likely to be talked about for many years to come. That much appears certain.But how does it end? Will this be the blowoff? Thats a question that isnt as easy to answer.The dynamic duo has done well to fight off viewer fatigue -- not just with the spectacular quality to their matches, but also in the recent variety, in terms of the stipulations. There has been a premium on physicality, thanks to their recent Hell in a Cell and Falls Count Anywhere matches, but Sunday should bring a return to a more pure wrestling style that we saw often from both women during their NXT days with the Iron Man format.This is the 11th Iron Man match in WWE history and the second between female superstars, after Banks took part in one of 2015s best matches against?Bayley?at NXT Takeover: Respect.If recent history is any indication, Flair could very well be the one exiting the ring with the title, just three weeks after losing the belt on Raw via submission (with the help of a railing) in the crowd. The fact that shes currently 14-0 in PPV singles matches also may play a part, should WWE want to promote the streak as her career moves forward.Its not impossible to imagine this feud continuing in some form through WrestleMania. It has been that good, with the constant title changes justified by just how evenly matched the two women have been portrayed.Has it been too much of a good thing? Not yet. And theres no reason to believe this match wont be the best one yet.Seth Rollins?versus?Chris JerichoThere was a major tease two weeks ago on Raw when Reigns fought off multiple pin attempts and finishing moves from Jericho to retain his U.S. title in an entertaining match. And in hindsight, its at least worth questioning whether giving the title to Jericho that night -- a belt he has yet to win over his legendary career -- wouldve properly spiced up this match against Rollins.While a good match is still expected between two guys who can really work, there really isnt much at stake here.Jericho certainly had a reservoir of retribution coming his way for the many times he played a part in interrupting matches during Rollins recent feud with Owens. But Rollins appeared to cash in a great deal of that on the Nov. 28 episode of Raw, when he attacked Jericho in the parking lot and landed a Pedigree on top of a car.What will be interesting to see here is whether or not this match is used as a precursor to plant storyline seeds (including an Owens run-in) that will come to fruition later in the night during the main event. All we can hope is that?Triple H?comes back into play with Rollins before too much longer.WWE Raw tag team championship:?The New Day?(c) versus?Cesaro?&?SheamusNow that The New Day have eclipsed Demolitions longstanding record of 478 consecutive days as champions, it will be interesting to see how quickly they give up the belts.A title change on Sunday wouldnt be out of the question, as WWE has done well to reinvent both Cesaro and Sheamus as a cohesive tag team following their best-of-seven series against each other this fall. The duo earned this title opportunity by winning a Fatal 4-way match at Tribute to the Troops, which aired on Wednesday.Both Cesaro and Sheamus appear better together than apart and could prove to be perfect transitional champions (due to their ambiguity regarding heel or face status) should the WWE have a title run in mind for another baby-face team like?Enzo Amore?and?Big Cass. But all of that is speculation for another day.What we can expect here is a good match with the emphasis on storytelling, as both teams have showed strong chemistry in the past, including an entertaining match at Hell in a Cell in October in which Cesaro and Sheamus won by disqualification when they seemed to be just seconds away from a submission win.WWE cruiserweight championship:?Rich Swann?(c) vs.?TJ Perkins?versus?Brian KendrickLook out for this one as a potential sleeper for match of the night, featuring the only three men to yet hold this version of the WWE cruiserweight title.The division hasnt quite clicked on Raw of late despite a marked improvement in terms of the attention to detail in storylines. A lot of that has to do with losing some of the electric energy and high-flying recklessness that was seen during the Cruiserweight Classic, which still hasnt quite been duplicated in larger arenas.Some of that comes down to the way the matches have been booked, so heres to hoping that the triple-threat format of this match allows that missing element to return. One couldnt ask for three better athletes with different styles to try and make it all work.Sami Zayn?versus?Braun StrowmanThe 10-minute time limit of this singles match will very likely play a key role as Raw general manager?Mick Foley?gives Zayn one final chance to prove he can survive against a monster as dangerous as Strowman.The buildup to this match has been impressive, featuring some of the best writing on Raw in recent weeks. The swerve of the fake trade to SmackDown for Zayn was a fine wrinkle to the overall story, and the passionate interplay between Foley and Zayn perfectly set the tone for whats at stake in this one.Strowmans size and athleticism should play well opposite Zayn. But considering Strowman has yet to lose a televised singles match and has been booked strong throughout his recent rebranding, a time-limit draw appears a somewhat predictable outcome.

The Raptors traded Rudy Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to the Sacramento Kings on Monday, in exchange for Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes. LOS ANGELES -- Matt Moore had pitched extremely well at Dodger Stadium, coming one out short of his first career no-hitter for San Francisco last month.What a difference a few weeks made.Moore struggled from the outset, giving up six runs and seven hits in a scant one inning that equaled the shortest outing of his career in a 9-3 loss to Los Angeles on Wednesday night.The Giants have lost four of five and dropped six games behind the NL West leaders, although they remained tied in the NL wild-card race after both the Mets and Cardinals lost earlier.Youve got to savor being in this position, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. There are too many times I havent been in this position. We are in it; its going to be a fight here the next 10 games.Moore (11-12) walked one and struck out none in a messy outing for the left-hander.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario -- The queen of the turf, Tepin, has taken her talents north of the border for Saturdays $1 million Woodbine Mile, but is she poised to bring her A game off a three-month layoff?Tepin is unbeaten in her last seven outings. Joshua Frazier Stitched Jersey . Her memorable victory over males in last years Grade 1 Breeders Cup Mile enabled her to clinch the Eclipse Award for the champion female turf runner. This year, Tepin picked up right where she left off by winning all five of her races. Following a pair of graded stakes scores at Tampa Bay Downs, she took the Grade 1 Jenny Wiley by five lengths at Keeneland and then won the Grade 2 Churchill Distaff Turf Mile.In June, owner Robert Masterson and trainer Mark Casse got ambitious for Tepins most recent start, shipping her to England for the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes going a straight mile at the prestigious Royal Ascot meet. Over soft ground that wasnt to her liking and without Lasix, she prevailed by a half-length in a gritty performance under regular rider Julien Leparoux.Tepin has been working at Saratoga, where she spent most of the summer under the watchful eye of assistant trainer Norm Casse.Shes always run well fresh, Norm Casse said. In that way, Im confident. Her works were the way that we like them to be. All indicators are shes ready. Im cautiously optimistic.The 20th running of the Grade 1 Woodbine Mile attracted a field of eight and heads a spectacular card that also includes the Grade 1 Northern Dancer Turf, the Grade 2 Canadian, and the Grade 3 Ontario Derby.The Woodbine Mile and Canadian are Breeders Cup Win and Youre In qualifiers. The Mile has yielded four BC Mile winners, including Wise Dan and Court Vision.The Woodbine Mile, the 12th and final race on the card, will be broadcast on TSN2 in Canada from 6-7 p.m. Eastern. Post time is 6:39.Saturdays early pick four has a guaranteed pool of $150,000, and the late one is guaranteed at $250,000. The early pick five is guaranteed at $50,000.

Ideally, wed like her to sit off somebody. I think she relaxes a little better that way. The slower they go early, the more effective her kick is late. If she gets comfortable early, shes going to be really tough to beat.The only filly or mare to win the Woodbine Mile was Ventura, who prevailed off a five-month layoff in 2009 for trainer Bobby Frankel.Mutakayyef, by Sea The StarsBy far the best of the Europeans invaders, the 5-year-old is coming off a troubled third behind the highly accomplished Postponed and Group 1 winner Highland Reel in the Group 1 Juddmonte International at York.

My horses had been very sick, and he was the same, so, really, it was like his first run of the year.Assistant trainer Gary Hindmarch said Arod could lead the way Saturday.He likes to be in front, but if someone tears off, hes quite happy to sit behind, said Hindmarch. The ground is a key factor with him. He wants it like the road.Mr. Owen, by Invincible Spirit Beyer: 97He was a nonthreatening sixth in last years Woodbine Mile after getting away slowly and racing three wide on the turn.

Chukwuma Okorafor Stitched Jersey . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. Womens Steelers Jerseys . Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050 Thursday, the Leafs GM also touched on the questions surrounding the teams leadership and the struggles of his big-name free-agent signing. “Its not from lack of effort from the coaching staff. . Louis Cardinals. Victorino is batting sixth and playing right field after missing two games because of back tightness. One of the most compelling unanswered questions heading into the 2016 season involved the future of Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins. After initially failing to impress as the on-again, off-again replacement for Robert Griffin, Cousins cut out the interceptions and produced a magical run to lead Washington to the playoffs in 2015. The numbers were almost comically great: Over the final 10 games of 2015, Cousins threw 23 touchdowns against three picks and posted a 78.8 QBR, the second-best figure in football.Washington general manager Scot McCloughan chose to franchise Cousins over the offseason in lieu of allowing him to hit unrestricted free agency or locking him up with a long-term extension. The goal, naturally, was to keep Cousins on the roster while waiting to see whether the guy who blew up in 2015 was the real deal. Eight weeks into the season, as I discussed with Mina Kimes and Sheil Kapadia in our live podcast this week in Seattle, Im not really sure we know the answer.The Magic 8 Ball appears to be coming up with shake again for Cousins, but lets see if we can look a little deeper into Cousins run to figure out what Washington might do -- and should do -- this offseason.While Cousins played relatively well in all facets of the game during the 2015 season, his incredible 10-game run was built upon two fronts, both of which were going to be difficult to maintain. One was an oddly microscopic interception rate: a passer who had thrown picks on 4.3 percent of his pass attempts before the now-famous You Like That game versus the Buccaneers threw just three interceptions over his final 315 pass attempts in 2015, a 1.0 percent clip.Nobody sustains a 1.0 percent interception rate, not even your Tom Bradys and Alex Smiths of the world, so there was little reason to think Cousins would continue to post a rate in that ballpark. Cousins was always going to regress, but the question was whether it would be to the mean or to his former, borderline-unplayable self.The answer, at least thus far, is that Cousins has basically been about an average quarterback in terms of avoiding interceptions. His interception rate is 2.2 percent, roughly that of a league-average passer (2.0 percent), and its only above that league-average rate after throwing what amounted to an effective punt on third down against the Bengals in London last weekend. It has been only 321 pass attempts, so Cousins could still turn back into his old self, but we basically now have two full seasons of data to work with for Cousins.Up to that Bucs game, he threw 27 interceptions in 635 attempts. Since the Tampa victory, he has been picked just 10 times in 636 passes. We have as much data suggesting Cousins will be able to avoid having interceptions plague his career as we do saying hell be a mess.In looking at Cousins interceptions this season, its still clear that defenses can fool him.He has that Hail Mary pick, an interception that was tipped at the line against Pittsburgh, and a frantic throw under pressure that Malcolm Jenkins returned to the house.His other four interceptions have all been on throws where a defender was able to undercut a receiver who looked open to Cousins for an easy pick.Defenses still fool him with trap coverages from their cornerbacks and robber looks over the middle of the field, where defenders can either come off of their men or disguise their intentions before breaking on the football. Jamar Taylors interception in the Browns game and C.J. Mosleys near-pick-six are the exact sorts of interceptions Cousins gets in the habit of throwing.Cousins also has two interceptions in the red zone this year, which was his other point of emphasis in 2015. The former Michigan State star was a monster inside the 20 last year, throwing for 22 touchdowns without an interception while taking just one sack in 80 dropbacks. While he unquestionably got help from star tight end Jordan Reed, Cousins was at the focal point of an offense which was ninth in points per red zone trip.I wrote before the season about how red zone performance is wildly inconsistent from year to year, and indeed, Washington has been awful in the red zone this year. Cousins obviously has more interceptions to his name in the red zone than the zero he posted last season, and Washington is averaging a league-low 3.97 points per red zone trip this season. Cousins himself posted a 96.7 QBR on throws inside the red zone last season, the second-best figure in the league; this year, his 63.8 QBR is good for only 16th in the league.Given that Cousins was 10th in QBR outside the red zone in 2015 and is at the same spot again in 2016, the red zone decline explains why he has fallen from fourth in raw QBR a year ago to 13th this season. Cousins also falls one spot to 14th once you account for strength of schedule; he has the third-largest gap between his raw QBR and his opponent-adjusted QBR, with only Brian Hoyer and Ryan Tannehill facing easier schedules so far this season.And yet, having said all that: Theres nothing wrong with the 14th-best quarterback in football, or a passer in the range of league average. Cousins has had games where he has failed to impress -- he might have left three touchdowns on the field in Week 1 -- but the bottom has never fallen out completely, as he has posted adjusted QBR figures between 41.9 and 73.9 in each of his seven games this season. He has just one game with as many as two picks after posting four such games in the first six ccontests last year. Cheap Steelers Jerseys. . Cousins hasnt hit the heights of the best parts of his 2015, but he also hasnt come close to sinking down to its lows, either.You can win a lot of games with a league-average quarterback.Alex Smith is 35-18 as one with the Chiefs. Joe Flacco?is?worse than league average, and he has gone 78-51 and won a Super Bowl with the Ravens. Ideally, you want your quarterback to be an undeniable superstar or a developing young passer on a rookie deal, but its usually better to have a reasonable quarterback locked down than it is to take a shot in the dark at the games most important position.The reason I inserted usually into that previous sentence, as you might already suspect, involves Brock Osweiler. We know more about Cousins than we did about Osweiler when the latter signal-caller hit free agency after seven career starts, but the idea here is roughly the same: Team develops quarterback into what looks to be something around a league-average passer and then has to decide whether hes worth keeping around if the cost is a little more than league average.The Broncos did their due diligence in evaluating Osweiler and decided, even if it meant leaving a viable Super Bowl contender with Trevor Siemian and Mark Sanchez at quarterback, that Osweiler wasnt worth what he was being offered on the free market. Osweiler then signed a four-year, $72 million deal that was really more like a two-year, $31 million contract with two team options tacked on the end. As it stands right now, Osweilers deal is already underwater. The Texans owe him $19 million in guaranteed money in 2017 when they probably would prefer to cut him and start anew again at quarterback.The simple argument Ive seen from people in and around the league when it comes to franchise quarterbacks is that if you have to ask whether you have one under center, you dont. Its also true that teams simply dont let franchise quarterbacks leave; the last one to hit the market while playing at a high level was Drew Brees in San Diego, and that was a decade ago.I think it was smart for McCloughan to franchise tag Cousins in 2015 given how little we knew on the outside about his improvement and how likely it was to stick. Its also true to say that if Washington had no doubts about Cousins ability to play at a high level, they would have used the leverage of the franchise tag to lock Cousins up to a long-term deal. Again, teams dont let franchise quarterbacks leave. Cousins cap hit of almost $20 million under last years franchise tag is the seventh largest in football; an extension likely would have cost less money on the cap this year.Instead, if the Cousins status quo continues, McCloughan will have to make an even tougher call. A second franchise tag for Cousins would cause his cap hit to rise to $23.9 million next season, which would make him the fourth-highest paid player in football behind Tony Romo, Flacco and Carson Palmer. At nearly $24 million, a league-average quarterback isnt delivering any surplus value. Washington wont want to pay Cousins that much on a short-term contract, and his representation will know as much.At the same time, its a sure thing that Cousins would get a massive deal in unrestricted free agency. The Texans gave Osweiler $31 million in guarantees, and while Cousins would be hitting the market at 29, he appears to be a significantly better quarterback with little injury history. If Osweiler got two guaranteed years, its not crazy to think a team might guarantee Cousins first two seasons at $18 million each and partially guarantee a third season at $9 million, putting a total of $45 million in guarantees on the table. In a draft with precious little in the way of quarterback prospects and no viable options in-house, teams like the Browns and Bears would have to seriously consider taking a run at Cousins and using their draft picks to try to grab help for their new starter.One case would say that if the market gives Cousins that sort of contract, Washington should be willing to give him the same sort of deal. And indeed, Washington is in transition and should want to secure Cousins future. This is a team that realistically could move on from DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon after the season and build its receiving corps around Reed, slot wideout Jamison Crowder?and first-round pick Josh Doctson.The flip side of that argument, again, is Osweiler.Just because one other organization thinks a quarterback is worth a ton of money doesnt mean it is right. Washington has an internal value of what it thinks Cousins is worth, and while it might want to stretch the numbers a bit for continuitys sake, it cant blow its budget on a quarterback. It might instead look to invest a midround pick on a rookie or go after a veteran in free agency who will come much cheaper than Cousins.Should McCloughan lock up Cousins? Thats the $45 million question, and to be honest, I dont think anybody involved knows the answer yet. Cousins has declined in predictable ways, but hes also still good enough to at least garner a big deal in free agency. Washington was hoping to get 16 games to see whether it should be handing out a big contract to its franchise passer. With eight games in the books, Washington is down to eight games before it has to make a decision that could define the franchise for years to come.

India captain MS Dhoni blamed the absence of big partnerships for his teams six-run defeat to New Zealand on a Feroz Shah Kotla pitch that was slow and had variable bounce.After New Zealand had made 242, India stitched together sizeable partnerships in their chase but lost clumps of wickets on two occasions. First, Ajinkya Rahane and Manish Pandey departed in the space of four balls in the 19th over, and then Dhoni, Axar Patel and Amit Mishra fell in a nine-ball span during overs 40 and 41, with Martin Guptill accounting for the last two of those dismissals in his only over of the match.If you see there were quite a few partnerships, but we kept losing wickets after every partnership, Dhoni said. When you are chasing a score like this it is important that you need to keep a few wickets because the runs were coming. Even if you need six or seven runs an over in the end it can easily be achieved but our problem was that we kept losing the wickets. In fact in the 41st over we lost two wickets.Its not about one batsman, I felt we lost wickets throughout. Any batsman could have said that had I contributed 10 percent more we would have won the game. So it was the responsibility of the whole batting unit. I felt the bowlers did well.Dhoni said the pitch continued to slow down despite the dew, which generally ensured the ball came on to the bat better. I felt it was best to bat in the day time as the game kept progressing the wicket got slightly slower and slower with a bit of variable bounce, he said. Also, if you lose one or two wickets that slowws you down to an extent. Womens Jaguars Jerseys. Then, if you have that partnership and still lose a wicket again, again you have to start from scratch.He defended the decision to bowl first and said 242 was a par score on the pitch. If any of our batsman had batted 15 minutes more we would have won the game, he said. The bowlers did well to come back into the game. Initially it was difficult to contain their batsmen and they played some proper shots, not to forget we dropped two catches off [Kane] Williamson. That also has a bit of a bearing. Overall I was happy with 240-245, because that was very much something we could have achieved.Dhoni also lauded Jasprit Bumrahs ability to bowl inch-perfect yorkers, and said his consistency made him his go-to man, particularly at the death. After a tight spell up front, Bumrah returned to clean up New Zealands lower order with yorkers and slower deliveries and finished with figures of 3 for 35.Right from the time he began his international career he has always been someone who can bowl yorkers at will, and thats why he has been someone I can always bank upon, Dhoni said. A lot of times I had to see how every bowler is bowling and then decide who will bowl the last few but with Bumrah be it any condition or situation he has always been someone who gives me those last few overs. He practices that way, he has an awkward action. Still credit to him for consistently bowling those yorkers.

Each week during the NFL regular season, hell give his favorite picks against the spread here with a little further analysis.Season record:?21-6 ATS (last week: 3-2)Cincinnati Bengals at New England Patriots? I think Tom Brady is having a blast playing football again, and that cant mean good things for any Patriots opponent. The Bengals arent the same team theyve been the past few years, at least not yet. I wouldnt be surprised if they right the ship before the season is out, but this is not the place to get back on track. New England takes this one comfortably.Score: Patriots 28, Bengals 17Baltimore Ravens at New York GiantsBaltimore is a little banged up, but I like their defense against a Giants offense thats in a bit of a funk. The Ravens are hoping for the same formula the Bills used when they got a new offensive coordinator -- after Baltimore fired Marc Trestman and replaced him with Marty Mornhinweg this week -- and I think they find some of it here. In a field goal game, Ill take the field goal.Score: Ravens 22, Giants 20Jacksonville Jaguars at Chicago BearsMaybe the Cubs magic is on its way, but if so, its needed at Wrigley. The Jaguars still have a chance to be the improved team that everyone thought they would be before the season. If theyre going to get there, this is a game they have to win. I just dont see the Bears winning with that team at the moment.Score: Jaguars 22, Bears 19Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland RaidersCoach Andy Reids teams are 12-5 against the spread and 15-2 straight up after a bye week. The Chiefs come out with a typical organized post-bye performance here. The Raiders are going to be fun to watch all year, but I think after this game, the AFC Wests top three teams will all have two losses. Keep an eye on the rain here as well, which could hurt Oaklands passing attack.Score: Chiefs 27, Raiders 24Atlanta Falcons at Seattle SeahawksGive Atlanta credit -- they went into Denver and scored 23 points against that defense. And with that offense, if the Falcons defense is even average, theyll be in good shape. But nothing perks up a historic defense like a high-flying offense. They like this challenge. The early bye week was good for Russell Wilson, and this is the best price youll get with Seattle the rest of the season at home.

Now they believe they have reached their goal and they do not want a grand prix anymore.

BERKELEY, Calif. Mens 921826-102 Air Max 97 South Beach White/Pink Blast-Kinetic Green-Black . -- Ivan Rabb has posted a double-double in all three games hes played this season, but after Cals 67-55 win over Southeastern Louisiana on Sunday, the sophomore forward said he still hasnt found his comfort zone.Honestly its still a little rough, said Rabb, an AP preseason All-American, who missed more than a month of practice time and the seasons first two games with a toe injury. I missed a lot of shots I normally make. My teammates tell me, `Dont get frustrated, keep your head up. Rabb had 17 points and 10 rebounds against the Lions.Charlie Moore scored 17 of his 22 points in the first half to set the tone and led the Bears (4-1) in scoring for the third time in the past four games. Moore, who entered the game as the Pac-12 Conferences No. 3 scorer averaging 19.8 points, made 4 of 6 from the 3-point arc.Gosh, hes got such a great future, Southeastern Louisiana coach Jay Ladner said of Moore. He was really the difference in the game.Grant Mullins added 13 points and Kingsley Okoroh had 10 points and nine rebounds for Cal.Davon Hayes led Southeastern Louisiana (4-3) with 11 points. Moses Greenwood added 10 points.Rabb returned to Cal after being projected as an NBA lottery pick, and through three games is averaging 16 points and 10.3 rebounds. But his game still appears a bit ragged.Ive had very limited practices, Rabb said. When you try to practice a few times and go and play, its night and day. The games are a lot faster. But Im starting to get into a groove and my conditioning is getting little better.Cal coach Cuonzo Martin said Rabbs uneven play is understandable. You miss that kind of time, youre a step slow, he said. My thing is defend, rebound and play hard. The scoring will come.Southeastern Louisiana was in a hole from the start. Guard Marlain Veal picked up three fouls in a span of 11 seconds and Cal led 11-1. Veal, coming off a 20-point game at Colorado State, scored just two points before fouling out.For the second straight game, Cal led by 20 points in the second half then allowed its opponent to cut the margin to single digits. This time, the Bears missed 10 straight shots and the Lions pulled within 48-39 with 10 minutes left.I thought we played great in the second half. We made a game out of it, Ladner said. We got a little discombobulated there when Veal picked up three quick fouls to start the game. It took a while for us to get settled down.BIG PICTURECal: The Bears will be without junior center Kameron Rooks indefinitely after he injured his left knee Friday against Wyoming. Rooks, who started two of Cals first four games, was averaging 6.5 points and 6.8 rebounds. He is scheduled to undergo further tests.Rooks joins senior guard Jabari Bird on the shelf. Bird, a former McDonalds All-American, scored 14 points in Cals opener but has missed the past four games with back spasms. The timetable for his return is uncertain.Southeastern Louisiana: Turnovers have been a thorn for the Lions. They entered play Sunday tied for 263rd nationally at 17.2 turnovers per game, and they had three against Cal before scoring their first field goal. Southeastern finished with 16 giveaways.UP NEXTCal plays its fourth game in a five-game homestand on Wednesday against Louisiana Tech (3-2), whose two defeats this season were on the road to South Carolina and Nebraska.Having completed a three-game road trip through Texas, Colorado and California, Southeastern Louisiana returns home to play Wednesday against Maryland-Eastern Shore (0-6), which is playing its sixth road game in seven.

Australias Test-match losing streak may be making headlines, but their neighbours across the Tasman have not fared much better this year. Eagles Hoodies Jerseys Sale . Of nine Tests played in 2016, New Zealand has lost six, winning only the two matches against Zimbabwe. Their four most-recent results have all been losses.Unlike for Australia, however, the losing streak has come overseas, against formidable opposition: the first loss came against South Africa, and the next three in India, where many teams have suffered in the last three years.Now back at home, with a grassy pitch before them and a long summer ahead, coach Mike Hesson has said his team will not dwell on the overseas failures. They will instead aim to fall back on memories of their unbeaten stretch at home between 2013 and 2015.I think weve won seven out of our 11 Tests at home in the last three years, with a couple of draws and a couple of losses, Hesson said. You do that because conditions are familiar to you, and you adapt quicker than other sides.Weve been stressing the fact that we need to prepare for conditions that were more familiar with. Weve got some experience to draw on over the last three or four years. Its a matter of going through that rather than reliving India. Conditions over there were significantly different to what were going to face over here.New Zealands batsmen had had a particularly torrid tour of India, where no one managed a century across three Tests. Their main destroyers on that tour had been spinners R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who shared 41 scalps between them. Hesson said his batsmen had rebounded mentally since that series, which ended a month ago.The conditions are here very different, so the skillset required is different. We acknowledge that we didnt adapt as well as we needed to in India. Hence, we underachieved, especially with the bat. Here, Im very confident the guys know the conditions. There was a period of having to deal with dented confidence, but that was some time ago. At the time we needed to dwell on some of the areas we hadnt performed well in, and weve done that. Then we need to move on - thats the nature of international cricket. When you perform and you win easily, you dont dwell on that either. You move on.The top order will have to contend with the likes of Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz and Yasir Shah, as they battle for Test form. Pakistans attack had delivered two Test victories in England this year, and Hesson believes they are a particularly dynamic outfit.Well be challenged by this Pakistan attack, theres no doubt about that, he said. Theyve got an attack that suits all conditions around the world. They swing the new ball, they reverse it, and theyve got a very good spinner. Theyve also got experience in their batting line up. Theyre tough in every condition, so theyre bowling attack is going to pose some challenges for us.The Hagley Oval surface has generally been seam-friendly over the first two days of the Test. Although it had a significant covering of grass two days from the Test, Hesson expected the pitch to settle quickly.The pitch has good pace and bounce, which stays throughout. And I think it turns into a pretty flat surface. Its one of those surfaces where you are going to need to have resources to bowl a lot of overs, rather than think youre going to bowl them out in a session and a half. I dont think its going to be like that.

Jordan Mailata Hoodie . -- Bryant McKinnie came out of his stance and lowered his shoulder into a practice squad player, causing a crisp thud to reverberate in the Miami Dolphins practice bubble. .

As Middlesbrough get set for their first Premier League match in eight seasons, Stoke City hope this will be the campaign they finally move up from the bottom half of the top 10.Riverside Stadium welcomes top flight football back to North Yorkshire on Saturday when the Boro host the Potters.A second place finish in the Championship last season earned Middlesbrough their first promotion since 2008-09, when a 7-11-20 overall result ushered in a long exile away from the top flight.The crowd, the players, myself -- everyone is really excited, Boro manager Aitor Karanka told the clubs official website.Middlesbrough went undefeated in their final 10 fixtures last season, but drew each of the last four. Boro -- joining Hull City and Burnley on the upgrade list -- might have the best overall makeup of the new sides to avoid immediate relegation from the Premier League.We worked hard to get here so we want to stay, club CEO Neil Bausor said. Saturday has been a long time coming. Its going to be great for us, the club and the town so were really looking forward to it.A season ago, Karankas group allowed a Championship-low 31 goals and received a consistent performance in goal from Dimitrios Konstantopoulos. However, U.S. National Team and former Aston Villa member Brad Guzan and ex-Barcelona and Manchester United keeper Victor Valdes were brought in to make for some interesting competition.That kind of depth in goal could perhaps come in handy against the best England has to offer. The spirit throughout the Boro has impressed Guzan.You can see that positive energy, belief and attitude that is so important in the Premier League, Guzan said. You sense that in this dressing room, everyone is pushing each other in training to make sure theyre ready.David Nugent, Gaaston Ramirez, Jordan Rhodes and Cristhian Stuani provide some solid offencive options along with Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo. Authentic Eagles Hoodies. Just who will see the early time up front remains an interesting decision for Karanka.Weve put some investment in and worked to bring some players in that we hope can strengthen the squad weve got, Bausor said. Coupled with the experience weve got from last year, were pleased with where we are.Perhaps the overall key to the Boro season lies on the shoulders of Karanka himself. Known for some hot-headed behaviour in the past, any outbursts directed toward his own club or game officials might come off as colorful but could prove detrimental in the top division if habitual.Stoke has finished ninth for three straight seasons, but hope the additions of midfielders Ramadan Sobhi from Egypt and former Liverpool member Joe Allen will help improve on their 41 goals scored in 2015-16. The Potters went 2-3-5 in their final 10 matches and managed 17 goals in the last 17.Forward Marko Arnautovic, who had his contract extended four years, recorded a team-high 12 goals over all competition, but scored only once in his last seven contests.Attacking wise were in decent shape, we just need to find an end product, manager Mark Hughes told Stokes official website. Weve now got a long road ahead of us but were looking forward to it.The health of defender Ryan Shawcross again remains a concern after he was limited to 20 games a season ago and did not look completely fit during the preseason.Hughes club went 6-5-8 on the road last season and was outscored 10-2 while dropping the final three away from home.

Riyad Mahrez lost out to Leicester City team-mate Jamie Vardy for the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award on Monday. Kevin Mchale Jersey . Adam Bate explains why Mahrez got his vote… Everyone loves a winger. David Ginola and Gareth Bale were both rewarded with the FWA Footballer of the Year award. Riyad Mahrez wont be joining them just yet, but hes already set to do what those two did not do - propel his team to a Premier League title. Vardy wins FWA award Jamie Vardy named Football Writers Association Footballer of the Year for 2015/16. The numbers tell some of the story. Mahrez has scored 17 goals and provided 11 assists, putting him level with Jamie Vardy as the most effective player in the Premier League. Its difficult to overstate his importance to the team. Champions need flair as well as functionality. Even Watford have a dogged defence, having conceded the same amount of goals as the Foxes as recently as February. But they didnt have a Mahrez.In a team full of heroes, he still stands out. Both Vardy and NGolo Kante have been integral but Leicester have actually coped without them. Without Mahrez on the pitch in this seasons Premier League, they have conceded twice as many goals as theyve scored. Mahrez impact Player Dribbles Player Clear chances created Wilfried Zaha 127 Mesut Ozil 26 Riyad Mahrez 117 Riyad Mahrez 17 Ross Barkley 111 Dimitri Payet 13 He ranks in the top two in the Premier League for dribbles and clear-cut chances created. Hes twisted and hes turned. Hes sold the dummies and the defenders have just kept buying them. Hes been fun to watch and given the impression it was even more fun to play.I was a street footballer, he told Sky Sports recently. Every day, I was on the street dribbling, doing skills. I wasnt in an academy till I was 19. The lung-busting hunger of Vardy might be more conspicuous but Mahrez has his own story too.Perhaps the journey from Sarcelles - a dangerous ghetto, according to the man himself - doesnt evoke the same everyman qualities for English audiences, but it should. Mahrez battled for an amateur contract in Frances fourth tier. A trial at St Mirren didnt work out. Jamie Redknapp highlighted Mahrezs all-round game after the 4-0 win over Swansea As recently as 2014, one month shy of his 23rd birthday, he was with Le Havre in the French second division. Those spindly limbs didnt convince everyone of their capacity to cope in tougher conditions but Leicesters technical scouts looked at the stats and took a chance.Nigel Pearson trusted his talent but Mahrez was still an unused substitute on numerous occasions last season - most notably in the April win at Burnley that lifted Leicester out of the bottom three. Hes a more effective player now and that owes much to his dedication to improve.In the wake of Mahrezs PFA Player of the Year award, manager Claudio Ranieri said: I am very proud because Riyad is a very humble man. He asks every time, What can I do to improve? That is fantastic. He is a genius, our light. Mahrez has found a unique role for himself in Claudio Ranieris team In a recent interview with LEquipe, Mahrez spoke of the headaches brought about by Claudio Ranieris attention to detail on the tactical work. The instincts of the street footballer remain. I want so much be that player, the player who improvises, he admitted. But hes worked at it.Its been reflected in his efforts. While the compact team shape has been a feature of Leicesters success and theres a beauty in the simplicity of the roles of many within the line-up, the onus is on Mahrez to do something different. He has to pick his moments to gamble. Mahrez scored in a 3-1 win away to Manchester City in February We know hes a wide player, Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports. But the amount of times he finds himself between the lines, hes not just a headless chicken going in there. Its being in there and being decisive at the right time. Thats understanding. Thats reading the game.More often than not hes read it right. Mahrez scored in the first three games of the season - a brace against Sunderland, the winner versus West Ham and what turned out to be a significant late equaliser at home to Tottenham. Those goals alone were worth five points.By March, his goals had earned the team 20 points - and it wouldve been four more but for a couple of penalty misses. During the run-in, there were fine finishes in 1-0 wins over Watford and Crystal Palace. A brief dip followed but Mahrez has done it when it mattered. Needing to deliver with Vardy suspended, Mahrez opened the scoring against Swansea, settling the nerves and leaving Leicester on the brink. There was no goal against Manchester United on Sunday but his second-half dribbling relieved the pressure nevertheless.You were wondering whod step up, said Carragher of that win over Swansea. There was no need. Mahrez has been the decisive figure at the decisive time in the team of the season. Maybe even bigger things await, but this will always be his year - Leicesters year. He deserves every award going. Also See: Vardy wins FWA award Souness in awe of Leicester WATCH: Did Leicester get lucky? WATCH: LVG, Ranieri respect Bob Cousy Jersey . Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesdays 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League.

While Leeds are down in 17th and last won a league game on January 23, fourth-placed Brighton are just four points behind second-placed Hull and go into the match on the back of a 4-0 triumph over Bristol City.Hughtons side will be keen for all three points in Monday nights televised clash, especially with fellow promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough, Hull, and table-toppers Burnley all in decent form. Nevertheless, Hughton will not be underestimating a Leeds side that held Middlesbrough to a goalless draw and told the official Seagulls club website: They can come here without so much fear, but they will do that anyway. Brighton manager Chris Hughton thinks all of the promotion-chasing sides in the Championship will finish the season strongly Theyve got some good young talent in the side and sometimes we talk about young players feeling nervous, but they generally play without fear and enjoy it.Hughton, who will hope to have defenders Bruno and Gaetan Bong back in contention, added: Generally their games are quite tight and close, but were at home and the points for where we are in the league are very valuable.
