ike Piazza said his early travails with the Dodgers were worth it

Ireland 316 (Wilson 95, Porterfield 88, Afzal 4-63) and 230 (Anderson 59, Afzal 3-53) beat Hong Kong 237 (Rath 73*, Nizakat 69, Dockrell 3-46) and 239 (Nizakat 123, Murtagh 4-29) by 70 runsScorecard Ireland climbed to the top spot on the Intercontinental Cup table with a 70-run win over Hong Kong in Belfast on Friday.Having taken a 79-run first-innings lead, Ireland put up 230 in their second innings to leave Hong Kong with a target of 310 to win. They began day four on 199 for 6, but managed to add only 31 as left-arm spinner Nadeem Ahmed polished off the tail. Fast bowler Tim Murtagh then picked up 4 for 29 as Hong Kong were bowled out for 239.Nearly half of Hong Kongs 239 came from Nizakat Khan, who was the last man dismissed for 123. The significance of his contribution to Hong Kongs score was underlined by the fact that no other batsman in the line-up crossed an individual score of 30. The 24-year-old batsmans maiden first-class century in his third match included 14 fours and a six.I need to give credit to Mark Wright who has helped me with my batting and to Cambo (Ryan Campbell) and Cooky (Simon Cook), Nizakat said after the match.It felt really good to make a hundred - when I came here I just wanted to score a hundred and it was an amazing feeling - it wasnt easy but I just fought to the end. Im happy with myself but I know I still have a lot of improvement to make.Left-arm spinner George Dockrell added to his first-innings haul of three wickets with two more in the second, including Hong Kong captain Babar Hayat for 28, while Kevin OBrien also picked up two wickets.Nizakat had also contributed a 69 in the first innings, one of two half-centuries as Hong Kong mustered 237 in response to Irelands first innings score of 316. In that innings, he shared a 101-run stand for the third wicket with Ninad Shah to help Hong Kong rebuild slightly after stumbling to 3 for 2 in the 10th over. The second fifty of that innings came from Anshuman Rath, who top-scored with 73* off 163 balls.Irelands first innings total, after they had opted to bat, was built around William Porterfields 88 and Gary Wilsons 95. Ed Joyce and George Dockrell also got starts - the latter striking 32 lower down the order - but Porterfield and Wilson steered the middle and lower orders respectively, sharing in crucial partnerships. The best stand for Ireland was the one between Wilson and Dockrell for the seventh wicket which yielded 65 runs.Tanwir Afzal and Nadeem were the most successful Hong Kong bowlers, each taking a four-for in Irelands first innings and backing it up with three-wicket hauls in the second.The full 20 points for Ireland took them to the maximum 80 points after four rounds, 19 ahead of Afghanistan who now sit in second place. Hong Kong meanwhile remain tied for fourth with Scotland in the Intercontinental Cup table at 30 points, 16 behind third-placed Netherlands. Sonny Milano Jersey .

The move comes after the Canadiens were approached by the Buffalo Sabres for permission to speak to Dudley - a former Sabres player and head coach. "The Sabres called for permission and I appreciate that, Im flattered, Dudley told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN. Oliver Bjorkstrand Jersey .

Badenhop was 2-3 with a 3.47 ERA in 63 relief appearances for Milwaukee this season. He is 18-20 in his career with three saves and a 3. As thousands of cellphone cameras went off like fireflies, the crowd rose to its feet, and the cheers echoed throughout Chavez Ravine. It was Vin Scully Appreciation Night at Dodger Stadium this past Sunday, but this reception was not for him. No, this was a love letter to another Dodgers legend, another man whose humility made his gifts seem even more transcendent.This was for Sandy Koufax. Looking as though he could throw a no-hitter tomorrow, he walked onto the stage, embraced Scully, then took the podium as Vin sat back down. A microphone picked up an enthralled Scully saying, This is great. This is the best.Its hard to believe Koufax is now 80 years old, partly because he looks so trim and athletic, but also because it seems like only yesterday that he was thrilling the grandparents of the people now sitting in the seats.I think as many times as Ive been on this field, Ive never been this nervous, Koufax said. My first year with the Dodgers was 1955. So if my math is correct, Ive known Vin Scully for 60 years or more. In a seldom-heard voice that now suddenly seemed so familiar, Koufax delivered a lovely tribute that recalled how much Scully meant to Dodger fans and to the Dodgers.A story about Vin, Koufax said toward the end of his speech. I dont know if many people know, but before the World Series, Vin would go to church ... and pray. Not for a win, but that there would only be heroes in the World Series. No goats. He didnt want anyones future to be tarnished with the fact that they lost the World Series for their team. And I think that showed his compassion for the players.No. 32 was one of those heroes. He won two games in the 1963 World Series, when the Dodgers swept the vaunted Yankees, and in the 65 Series against the Twins, he threw a three-hit shutout in the seventh game while pitching on just two days rest. He also had four no-hitters, one of them a perfect game in 1965.But for all his memorable victories, theres one that truly defines Sandy Koufax. It happened 50 years ago on this coming Sunday, Oct. 2 -- which also happens, this year, to be the day that Scully will broadcast his last game for the Dodgers and the start of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.Statistically, the game doesnt particularly stand out -- he struck out 10 but gave up two earned runs and seven hits in nine innings. Its the circumstances, though, that make it so special.It was the last game of the season, the second game of a doubleheader against the Phillies in Connie Mack Stadium, a game the Dodgers needed to win to get into the World Series, a game he started on a moments notice with just two days of rest. It was the last victory of his career.Even the normally reserved Koufax had to admit afterward, It was the biggest ball game of my life.Look at the box score of that game today. If youre a baseball fan with a sense of history, youll find a lot of familiar names. Opposing Koufax was Jim Bunning, a future Hall of Famer and Kentucky senator trying to win his 20th game. Also playing for the Phillies was the legendary Richie Allen, future National League president Bill White, future Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker, and future major league managers Cookie Rojas, Harvey Kuenn and Bobby Wine.The Dodgers had the base-stealing king Maury Wills playing shortstop and leading off, the late Willie Davis in center field batting third, and Ron Fairly in right field batting cleanup. Behind the plate was the late John Roseboro, behind him was future Hall of Fame umpire Doug Harvey, and up in the booth was Vin Scully.The situation was that the Dodgers needed to win one game of the doubleheader if the Giants won their game in Pittsburgh, Scully says. What we didnt know was that Sandy had already decided this would be his last season. So you can imagine the pressure he mustve felt.It did cross my mind that it might be my last game if we lost, Koufax says. But it wasnt about me, really.What follows is the story of that game, pieced together from interviews with those who were there; from accounts in Jane Leavys superb biography, Sandy: A Leftys Legacy, John Roseboros autobiography and Michael Leahys The Last Innocents, a fascinating look back at the 1960s Dodgers; and with the invaluable assistance of Dodgers historian Mark Langill.But as with any good story, a little setup is essential. The 1966 season started with Koufax and Don Drysdale, the two Dodgers aces, holding out for more money and shooting a movie called Warning Shot -- Koufax was to play a police detective. We were scared to death, says Wes Parker, then the first baseman.Owner Walter OMalley finally blinked, signing Koufax for $125,000 and Drysdale for $110,000 with a week to go in spring training. The late start didnt seem to affect Koufax at all -- by June 26, he was 14-2 with 14 complete games and a 1.56 ERA.But unbeknownst to the Dodgers, the left-hander had already decided this would be his last season. He knew he was risking permanent disability to his left arm by pitching. He suffered from Raynauds Syndrome, Scully says. Its a condition that makes everything you touch feel like ice. He couldnt even play golf. But Sandy is as tough as they come.In Glory Days With The Dodgers (and Other Days with Others), written with Bill Libby, the late Roseboro described what Koufax was going through: The arthritis was agony during games, but he threw hard. He remained better than anybody else. I used to ask, You all right, big guy? And hed say, Ill get by, Rosey.Koufax would get cortisone shots in his elbow, slather on Capsolin heat ointment to mask the pain, then ice his swollen elbow after every start.He had 15 wins at the All-Star break and was named to start the Midsummer Classic -- on two days rest in the summer oven of St. Louis. To escape the heat, Marvin Miller, the new head of the players association, went down to the clubhouse and saw Koufax icing his elbow. Ive never seen an arm swollen like that in my life, Miller told Jane Leavy. He saw that look of horror and he said, Dont worry, it goes down. This happens every time I pitch.That stoicism showed his toughness, but it was also a demonstration of the responsibility he felt for the other guys in the clubhouse. He was the best teammate you could ever ask for, says Jeff Torborg, who caught his perfect game in 1965. Back then, players would get gifts for doing postgame interviews. Well, Sandy would always give his away to the guys who never got interviewed -- Suzie and I still have the blender he gave me.Koufax literally carried the offensively challenged Dodgers that summer as they took over first place. Over the last 26 days of the season, he made seven starts, with six complete games and five victories.But he takes Alston off the hook for overusing him. That was my choice, he says now. I went to Walter and said, Dont worry about me. Use me as often and whatever way you can. Maybe not the smartest thing to say, but I said it.On Sept. 29, he pitched a four-hitter to beat the Cardinals and raise his record to 26-9. The Dodgers were in first, but both the Pirates and Giants were on their heels, and they were exhausted as they headed to Philadelphia to end the regular season and an 11-game road trip. The Giants, in the meantime, were in Pittsburgh for a three-game series.On Friday night, the Dodgers lost and the Giants were rained out. They swept a Saturday doubleheader to close to within two games of the Dodgers, with two games of their own left to play.So now, Koufax says, if the Giants beat the Pirates on Sunday, we have to win one of those games in the doubleheader.There were 23,215 people in the stands that day. Drysdale started Game 1, but he gave up two runs in the first and turned things over to Ron Perranoski after just two innings. The Dodgers went ahead 3-2 in the sixth, and Bob Miller, who had relieved Perranoski, shut out the Phillies in the fifth, sixth and seventh.Koufax remembers going out to the visiting bullpen in the right-field corner of Connie Mack just in case he was needed. The sight of him warming up would have been enough to freak out the Phillies, but there was also the sound of his fastball. You knew it was Sandy, Phillies shortstop Dick Groat is quoted as saying in The Last Innocents. You knew it couldnt be anybody else.But then just like that, the game unraveled for the Dodgers. Miller gave up a single to Allen to start the eighth, then threw away a double-play ball on a bunt attempt by White. If Bob makes that play, Parker says, we win the game and the pennant, and Sandy gets to start Game 1 of the World Series on five days rest.Phil (The Vulture) Regan replaced Miller and intentionally walked Groat. Then third baseman Dick Schofield made an error that tied the score, and Clay Dalrymple singled to put the Phillies ahead 4-3. Koufax returned to the dugout.Thats the way the game ended. There was still the possibility that the Pirates would beat the Giants, negating the need for Sandy to pitch the second game against Bunning. But he couldnt take that chance. I just changed shirts and warmed up again between games, he says.Torborg was given the task of warming him up in the interval. Picture this, Torborg says. The TV guys gave me a headset so that I could listen to the play-by-play of the Giants game while Im in the bullpen catching Sandy. If the Giants won, he would pitch. If the Pirates won, we could shut him down.ddddddddddddThe Pirates had the winning run on third in the ninth, with Roberto Clemente at the plate, but he grounded out and the game went into extra innings. Koufax couldnt wait any longer and said something like, The hell with it. Lets win the goddamn game.There was a certain irony to the matchup between Koufax and Bunning. You know, Sandy and I have known each other forever, says the soon-to-be-85-year-old Bunning. I was actually coaching the Xavier freshman basketball team when we played the University of Cincinnati freshmen, and Sandy was on that team. He was pretty good. But I think he made the right career choice, dont you?They had also locked up in an epic pitching duel back on July 27, when they both left after 11 innings with the score tied 1-1. Now, Bunning was going after his 20th victory and Koufax his 27th.The game started shortly after 7 p.m., and Bunning looked sharp, retiring the first three Dodgers in order. Koufax ran into a little trouble in the first, giving up singles to Jackie Brandt and Groat, but he got out of the inning.Around this time, the news from Pittsburgh arrived: Willie McCovey hit a two-run homer in the 11th inning homer off Steve Blass, and the Giants had won. Koufax had to stay out there.According to Doug Harvey, Roseboro looked at him in the bottom of the second and said, Sit back, kid. When Harvey asked him what he meant, Roseboro said, Koufax said he cant get his curve over. Hes gonna go with the heater.Fifty years later, all Koufax will say is, My stuff was OK that day. But if its true that he threw only fastballs, he did neutralize one of the Phillies secret weapons: their manager, Gene Mauch, would whistle to his batters when he thought a breaking ball was coming.Gene was pretty quiet that day, says Bobby Wine, a backup shortstop in 66. But that might have something to do with the fact that Sandy once yelled over to him, Grab a bat! when Gene was getting on him.In the top of the third, the Dodgers got to Bunning, who says, I just didnt have it that day. Parker walked and stole second, Schofield singled him home and Willie Davis hit a two-run homer. They got another run off Bunning in the fourth on a sacrifice fly by Roseboro, and Koufax was now working with a 4-0 lead.In the bottom of the fifth, though, Koufax felt something pop in his back while pitching to Gary Sutherland, the pinch-hitter for Bunning. In typical fashion, he downplays the injury. It was just a cramp, he says. We put some more Capsilon and tried to work it out.The Leavy book tells a somewhat more dramatic version of the incident. The two trainers, Bill Buhler and Wayne Anderson, together with former Dodgers pitcher Don Newcombe, pulled the pitcher in different directions to get the kink out.Whatever the severity of the injury, it was still another pain Koufax chose to ignore. You could see him wince, says Wine, but nothing more than that. And the Dodgers eased the pain by scoring insurance runs in the eighth and ninth.I gave up that last run, says Darold Knowles, who would become the only pitcher ever to work in all seven games of a World Series, which he did for Oakland in 73. But it was a privilege to share the mound with Sandy.So there Koufax stood, with a 6-0 lead in the bottom of the ninth. I guess I sort of ran out of gas, he says.Leading off the ninth, Allen reached on an error by second baseman Jim Lefebvre. Kuenn singled to left in what turned out to be the last at-bat of his distinguished career. Tony Taylor singled to center to score Allen, bringing Bill White to the plate.Alston walked out to the mound to take his pitchers temperature, but he wasnt about to make a change -- he didnt even have anybody up in the bullpen. We didnt want to see anybody but Sandy on the mound, Fairly says.The left-handed-hitting White then doubled off the right-field wall. It was one of the hardest balls Ive ever seen hit, Parker says. I can still hear the collision with the wall.Suddenly, the score was 6-3, with no outs and White standing on second. Thats when I looked over at Sandy, Parker says. I swear, I saw that inner fire in his eyes. He was not going to let this game get away from him.He struck out Uecker. He got Wine, pinch-hitting, to ground out to Wills. I was thrilled to even get my bat on the ball, Wine says. Then he threw three fastballs right by Brandt. He didnt have a chance, says Parker.After that final, futile swing, Koufax ran straight off the mound into Roseboros arms as the Phillies and a stampede of fans came out onto the field. Parker soon joined them, but as he says, It wasnt so much to celebrate as it was to protect them. The fans -- some of them must have been left over from Brooklyn -- were crazy. Im still looking for the hat somebody swiped off my head.After calling strike three, Harvey pulled off his mask and walked off in the other direction, with a smile on his face. It was the greatest exhibition of baseball Ive ever seen in my life, he would tell Leavy after his induction into the Hall of Fame.There is some distant black-and-white footage of the last out in a recap of that year in sports narrated by Red Barber, who just happened to be Scullys mentor: Sandy Koufax, with a pain-ridden, arthritic arm shut out the Phillies in the ninth with his 10th strikeout. The Dodgers had the league pennant. It was Sandys 27th victory in 1966. He also got the Cy Young Award. And with the announcement of his retirement, it became Sandys final win.Of course, none of the Dodgers knew that as they celebrated in the visiting clubhouse. Backup outfielder Wes Covington poured a bottle of champagne on Koufaxs head, but as Roseboro wrote, Sandy was so sore and weary he just sat there with a funny sort of smile on his face.The Dodgers flew home to Los Angeles that night, and when they arrived at 4 a.m., there were hundreds of fans there to greet them. The loudest cheers came when Koufax disembarked. It was the biggest ball game of my life, he told Bob Hunter of The Sporting News. This was bigger than my pennant clincher last year, or winning the seventh game of the World Series against the Twins.Does he still feel the same way 50 years later?I always wanted to finish a win, he says, and I wanted to finish my career with a win. So, yes, Im tremendously proud of that game. But the reason I said that then was because of the team. I just wanted to make sure all of us got World Series shares. That money wouldnt seem like much now, but it was important to us then.For the record, players received $11,683.04 apiece for winning the 1966 World Series, or $8,189.36 if they lost it.Alas, the Dodgers had to settle for the losing share. Exhausted by their ordeal, they were swept in four games by the well-rested Baltimore Orioles, and in the last game of his career, Game 2, the 30-year-old Koufax lost 6-0 to 20-year-old Jim Palmer. What undid Koufax in that game were three errors by Willie Davis in the fifth inning that led to three unearned runs.At the end of that inning, Davis sat at the end of the bench, away from everybody. Koufax walked over to him, put his arm around him and said, Dont let them get you down.On Nov. 18, 1966, Koufax officially announced his retirement. A few people knew he was going to do it, but for most, the news came as a shock. Who retires from baseball at the age of 30, with a 27-9 record and a 1.73 ERA?The answer is someone who wanted to give only his best for his team.Back when Ron Fairly was a member of the Seattle Mariners broadcast team, he was in Kansas City, watching highlights of the 1965 World Series on the big screen. One of our young players -- a guy by the name of Alex Rodriguez?-- looks at Sandy pitching and says to me, Was he any good? Hah! I attempted to educate Alex right there.A lot of what made Sanford Koufax great is on his Hall of Fame plaque: Set All-Time Record With 4 No-Hitters In 4 Years, Capped By 1965 Perfect Game, And By Capturing Earned-Run Title Five Seasons In A Row, 1962-1966. Won 25 Or More Games Three Times, Had 11 Shutouts In 1963, Strikeout Leader Four Times, With Record 382 in 1965. Fanned 18 In A Game Twice, Most Valuable Player 1963, Cy Young Award Winner 1963-65-66.But because bronze is somewhat restrictive, they left some things out. Back then, the Cy Young Award was for both leagues, and each time he won, Koufax was a unanimous choice. Theres nothing about his college basketball days, or his transition from wild to brilliant. No mention of the pride he brought to millions of Jews when he decided not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because it was Yom Kippur.There was no room on the plaque for the pain he endured or the selfless devotion he gave to his Dodgers teammates.The other living members of the Hall of Fame are now his colleagues. He goes to Cooperstown each year for Induction Weekend, to share in the camaraderie, sample the wines at the big dinner, welcome the newest inductees.During his induction speech in July, Mike Piazza said his early travails with the Dodgers were worth it because, I actually got the chance to take batting practice off the great Sandy Koufax.The distinguished-looking gentleman whom Piazza was talking about smiled.And once again, his teammates turned to Sandy Koufax.

leys double into the gap in rig

Jimmy Garoppolo has spent the bulk of the past two-plus years learning in the classroom and on the practice field. And waiting for an opportunity like he has Sunday night.The third-year quarterback will make his first career NFL start when the New England Patriots take on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night -- under the lights in prime time for an 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff at University of Phoenix Stadium.Garoppolo, 24, has thrown 31 regular-season passes since being selected in the second round out of Eastern Illinois in 2014, and none of them has come against a hungry, aggressive defense in a Week 1 showdown of two teams expected to be in the thick of the playoff hunt. But thats the situation Garoppolo is thrust into as he takes the reins for the first four games of the season for the suspended Tom Brady.Theres so much going on right now, Garoppolo said. Mentally, Im straight on Arizona, but it is a phenomenal opportunity. This is why you play the game. You play to be in the game and play; you dont want to be the backup. The opportunity is here. Ive just got to go take advantage of it.Hell be facing an Arizona defense that finished fifth in total yards allowed, sixth in rushing yards allowed and eighth in passing yards allowed season. Cardinals general manager Steve Keim then went out and traded for Patriots linebacker Chandler Jones to pair opposite promising pass rusher Markus Golden. Two-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Calais Campbell admitted hes licking my chops in anticipation of facing a rookie quarterback.So, too, is Tyrann Mathieu, the versatile defensive back who returns from his second ACL surgery in three years. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he expects Mathieu to play every single play against the Patriots.The goal will be to rattle the inexperienced Garoppolo, who will be playing behind a reworked offensive line. But right guard Jonathan Cooper (foot), who was acquired for Jones, and left tackle Nate Solder (hamstring) were ruled out for the season opener.Arians recalled scouting Garoppolo coming out of college, and likened him to a young Tony Romo.Jimmys an excellent athlete, said Arians. A very accurate passer. Having been in the system, in that system especially, for the number of years hes been there, hes watched (offensive coordinator) Josh (McDaniels) come up with game plans and understands what theyre trying to do. But hes a very good athlete. You have to defend his legs as much as his arm.The Patriots need to lean on their impressive depth during Bradys absence, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. New England has playmakers at all three levels of the defense, but Arizona also returns all of its skill position threats from a unit that led the NFL with an average of 408.3 yards per game last season.Quarterback Carson Palmer is 36, but is also coming off a career year in which he threw for 4,671 yards and 35 touchdowns against just 11 interceptions during the regular season. Hes supported not only by a dynamic group of wide receivers led by Larry Fitzgerald, but with versatile David Johnson and healthy Chris Johnson team in in the backfield and an offensive line fortified by the addition of veteran guard Evan Mathis.Theyre very athletic, Arians said of New Englands defense. A solid secondary group. Interchangeable parts as far as inside and outside linebackers, which can get very confusing at times, and they do a very good job of it.Arians will try to stretch the New England secondary with a handful of vertical passes in an attempt to soften the underbelly of the defense. Patriots coach Bill Belichick always puts a premium on preventing big plays, and his defense created 10 turnovers during the preseason.You cant ignore your opponent, but you have to be responsive of what your team can do and what your players can do and what theyre comfortable doing, Belichick said. So, its a combination of both, and Id say thats the way it is every week.While Garoppolo can expect to see an aggressive pass rush featuring an array of blitz packages he has never been exposed to in live game action, the Cardinals defense is not without vulnerable spots. That begins with Brandon Williams, a converted college running back expected to start at cornerback opposite All-Pro Patrick Peterson. The 23-year-old Williams has yet to take a regular-season snap in the NFL, so Garoppolo has an experience edge on at least one other key figure on the field.He also has the benefit of a veteran group of skill position players in his own right, but the Patriots announced Friday night that tight end Rob Gronkowski has been ruled out because of a hamstring injury. Martellus Bennett will get more work.Wide receiver Julian Edelman is one of the best in the league at exploiting the seam, especially against aggressive pass rushes, and the Patriots will likely attempt to use battering ram LeGarrette Blount on early downs to keep Garoppolo out of dangerous down-and-distance situations -- although one can never fully predict how Belichick and McDaniels will attempt to attack a defense.You never want to be too high, too low, Garoppolo said of trying to keep his emotions in check come Sunday night. You always want to be right in the middle. Your teammates are always looking at you, so if you react in a bad way, theyre going to see that and theyll react to that.

Rendon hit his first major league home run following Nick Swishers ninth-inning error to propel the Washington Nationals to a 7-6 win over Cleveland on Saturday night. Its easy to see why Rendon was smiling following the good fortune that literally fell his way after his foul popup landed between Swisher and Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis. Asked if he thought he was going to be out on the play, Rendon laughed and said, "Yeah. It was a popup. I thought (Swisher) was going to catch it. I thought it was actually going to be fair. Thats why I kept running." Two pitches after his reprieve, Rendon homered into the Nationals bullpen off Vinnie Pestano (1-2) to stun the Indians and the crowd of 33,307.

Swisher was charged with the error. Instead of being the third out, Rendon got another opportunity. "That shouldnt happen to us but it did and it cost us the game," Swisher said. "It was a little miscommunication. It was something we handled already." Kipnis took his share of the blame. "He thought I had it, and I thought he had it," Kipnis said.

leys double into the gap in rig

Jimmy Garoppolo has spent the bulk of the past two-plus years learning in the classroom and on the practice field. And waiting for an opportunity like he has Sunday night.The third-year quarterback will make his first career NFL start when the New England Patriots take on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night -- under the lights in prime time for an 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff at University of Phoenix Stadium.Garoppolo, 24, has thrown 31 regular-season passes since being selected in the second round out of Eastern Illinois in 2014, and none of them has come against a hungry, aggressive defense in a Week 1 showdown of two teams expected to be in the thick of the playoff hunt. But thats the situation Garoppolo is thrust into as he takes the reins for the first four games of the season for the suspended Tom Brady.Theres so much going on right now, Garoppolo said. Mentally, Im straight on Arizona, but it is a phenomenal opportunity. This is why you play the game. You play to be in the game and play; you dont want to be the backup. The opportunity is here. Ive just got to go take advantage of it.Hell be facing an Arizona defense that finished fifth in total yards allowed, sixth in rushing yards allowed and eighth in passing yards allowed season. Cardinals general manager Steve Keim then went out and traded for Patriots linebacker Chandler Jones to pair opposite promising pass rusher Markus Golden. Two-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Calais Campbell admitted hes licking my chops in anticipation of facing a rookie quarterback.So, too, is Tyrann Mathieu, the versatile defensive back who returns from his second ACL surgery in three years. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he expects Mathieu to play every single play against the Patriots.The goal will be to rattle the inexperienced Garoppolo, who will be playing behind a reworked offensive line. But right guard Jonathan Cooper (foot), who was acquired for Jones, and left tackle Nate Solder (hamstring) were ruled out for the season opener.Arians recalled scouting Garoppolo coming out of college, and likened him to a young Tony Romo.Jimmys an excellent athlete, said Arians. A very accurate passer. Having been in the system, in that system especially, for the number of years hes been there, hes watched (offensive coordinator) Josh (McDaniels) come up with game plans and understands what theyre trying to do. But hes a very good athlete. You have to defend his legs as much as his arm.The Patriots need to lean on their impressive depth during Bradys absence, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. New England has playmakers at all three levels of the defense, but Arizona also returns all of its skill position threats from a unit that led the NFL with an average of 408.3 yards per game last season.Quarterback Carson Palmer is 36, but is also coming off a career year in which he threw for 4,671 yards and 35 touchdowns against just 11 interceptions during the regular season. Hes supported not only by a dynamic group of wide receivers led by Larry Fitzgerald, but with versatile David Johnson and healthy Chris Johnson team in in the backfield and an offensive line fortified by the addition of veteran guard Evan Mathis.Theyre very athletic, Arians said of New Englands defense. A solid secondary group. Interchangeable parts as far as inside and outside linebackers, which can get very confusing at times, and they do a very good job of it.Arians will try to stretch the New England secondary with a handful of vertical passes in an attempt to soften the underbelly of the defense. Patriots coach Bill Belichick always puts a premium on preventing big plays, and his defense created 10 turnovers during the preseason.You cant ignore your opponent, but you have to be responsive of what your team can do and what your players can do and what theyre comfortable doing, Belichick said.

est mentally as a team. The ph

PHOENIX -- The Golden State Warriors with Kevin Durant are still an early season work in progress, as evidenced by a close call against the Suns in Phoenix.Durant scored 37 points, Stephen Curry added 28 and the Warriors held off the pesky Suns 106-100 on Sunday.We are not clicking and everybody can see that, Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. It will come but the main thing while we are going through this process is to continue to compete and try to pick up wins.The Warriors didnt seal the victory until Currys two free throws with 12.9 seconds to play. Durant added a pair of free throws with seven seconds left to provide the final margin.Durant was 15 of 16 at the line.I was just taking what the defense was giving me, he said. If you play me straight up, I like my chances. I try to get there (the foul line) as much as possible. My guys were setting great screens for me and I was able to get downhill some.T.J. Warren scored 26 points and Eric Bledsoe had 21 for the winless Suns, who took the Thunder into overtime in Oklahoma City on Friday night. Tyson Chandler grabbed 18 rebounds for Phoenix.Game 3 with a young squad, have a chance to beat OKC on the road, have a chance to beat Golden State at home, Phoenix coach Earl Watson said. I think were right where we need to be.Warren was coming off a career-high 30 points against the Thunder.Unbelievable, Bledsoe said. I mean, hes `Tony Buckets. He does what his name says, he gets buckets.The Suns led by as many as 13 in the first half. The Warriors finally took somewhat shaky control midway through the final quarter.The game looked well in hand for the reigning Western Conference champs when Durant took a lob pass from Andre Iguodala, dunked and was fouled. The three-point play put the Warriors up 102-94 -- their biggest lead of the day -- with 1:19 to play.But Phoenix got consecutive driving layups from Bledsoe, Warren and Jared Dudley to cut it to 102-100 with 14.8 seconds remaining. The Suns had to foul Curry, and arguably the best free throw shooter in the game made them both to put away Golden States second victory after a loss in its home opener.SUNS RUNPhoenix scored 16 straight points in what became a 22-2 run to lead 30-17 when Alex Len sank a pair of free throws with 38.4 seconds left in the first quarter. Six Suns scored in the run.TEENAGE FAREWELL,The Suns Devin Booker, playing despite a toe injury, had a rough day on the court on his 20th birthday, but he did some serious damage in the NBA as a teenager.Booker scored 1,078 points in 78 games as a teen. The only teens to score more are LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmello Anthony, Durant and Dwight Howard. Booker had six 30-point games as a teenager, one fewer than Durant.He missed six of his first seven shots Sunday and wound up 3-for-12 for seven points.Devins tough, Watson said. If you watch him, hes limping around a lot. He has no excuses or anything. He goes out there and plays.Booker said that the toe injury restricted him some but insisted it was not affecting his shooting.Ive cant make no excuses. Im just missing shots, Booker said. Im going to catch my rhythm. ... Im kind of anxious on some of my shots. Ive just got to let the game come to me and Ill be fine.TIP-INSWarriors: Golden State committed 16 turnovers, leading to 25 Phoenix points. ... Golden State beat the Suns for the eighth straight time. ... Golden State swept the four-game series with the Suns two of the last three years.Suns: Rookie Marquese Chriss drew his third technical foul of the season. He had two and was tossed from the previous game at Oklahoma City. ... Booker was 0 for 6 from the field before sinking a 3 at the shot-clock buzzer to tie it at 62.UP NEXTSuns: Play at the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night.Warriors: Play at Portland on Tuesday night Marquette King Jersey .

INDIANAPOLIS - Colts linebacker Robert Mathis, who has missed the past two games with a biceps injury, didnt hold back in voicing his displeasure about the teams loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday, which severely hurt the Colts chances of winning the AFC South.Coming back against a team that has what you want in Houston, which is an AFC South title, we cant rise to the occasion. Thats just unacceptable, Mathis said on his weekly show on 1260-AM WNDE in Indianapolis on Tuesday.Im not bashing -- Im just telling the truth. Im the leader and that falls on me. Im the first one the fans should be angry at, he said. If I can take those bullets for my teammates, Im taking them. I have to do better. ... The talent is there. We can play with any team, when we are on our A-game. Its [just] a lot of mental. We are not the strongest mentally as a team. The physical ability, the coaching, the players -- its all there. Mentally, we need to get stronger.dddddddddddd.A victory Sunday would have allowed the Colts to control their destiny to win the AFC South. Now they likely need to win out and get help from the teams that Houston and Tennessee face in their final three weeks. The Colts havent missed the playoffs in back-to-back seasons since 1997-98.Mathis said he understands the frustration from the fan base because theyre on the brink of possibly missing the playoffs for the second straight year.We are not getting the job done, Mathis said on his show. However you shake it, the blame falls on us. The fans being [upset] is fully acceptable. They pay their hard earned money to get entertainment and see their team come out and whoop a little tail. That didnt happen. They are disappointed and thats fully understood.

ever declines.Maybe its a defense mechanism, to take as much emotion as

It turns out Robert Quinn only needed to hydrate.The Rams defensive end suffered a scare shortly after the team returned to Los Angeles on Sunday night, admitting himself to a local hospital early Monday morning with what was described as a non-football-related illness.TMZ released audio of a 911 call in which a woman who described herself as Quinns mother-in-law said Quinn was shaking and potentially suffering from a seizure. But Quinn was discharged from the hospital in less than a day, and he was a full participant in practice by Friday.He claimed he was told to just drink more water.Thats what I took from the whole thing, Quinn told reporters after Fridays practice. Drink more water -- and often, at that.Hints of a possible seizure are especially troubling for Quinn, who was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor during his senior year of high school and still undergoes biannual checkups. But both Quinn and Rams coach Jeff Fisher stated that the recent issue was unrelated.Quinn is listed as questionable?for Sundays home game against the Miami Dolphins. A league source told ESPNs Adam Schefter that Quinn is expected to play.Quinn said on Friday that the decision is going to come down to the doctors, Fisher, and ultimately how I feel. Hopefully I can get out there on Sunday and be somewhat productive.Also in question is the status of center Tim Barnes, who injured his foot on Sunday, did not practice all week and is also listed as questionable. If thats the case, Demetrius Rhaney would probably start his second career NFL game and snap the ball to No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff in his debut.The Dolphins, winners of four straight, will likely be without two of their starting offensive linemen in center Mike Pouncey (hip) and left tackle Branden Albert (wrist).Rams defensive end Eugene Sims (concussion) and cornerback Lamarcus Joyner (ankle) are also listed as questionable, though they were each full participants on Friday. Running back Todd Gurley (thigh) was limited Friday and is also questionable, but he didnt show up on the injury report at any other point this week.Quinn has been around the team since Tuesday morning and teammates have not noticed anything different. Fellow defensive end William Hayes drove Quinn back from the hospital on Monday night and said all he wanted was some sweet tea.It appears the worst is behind him.It kind of just overwhelmed me, said Quinn, who took 82 percent of the defensive snaps in Sundays 9-6 win over the New York Jets. It really just surprised me. Happened so fast; didnt really have a lot of time to think about it. Just dealt with it when I realized what was going on; kept on moving forward.

Its the second straight game Bell has scored in extra time for Kelowna, which beat the Brandon Wheat Kings 6-5 on Friday, and he now has four game-winning goals on the season. HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- His race team built him a car fitting for the baddest man on wheels. Tony Stewart will take his final NASCAR ride in a tribute Chevrolet signed by every team member, the hood emblazoned with photos from his championship years and the slogan, Always a Racer, Forever a Champion.His helmet? Well, that was something special. Its a weathered throwback that looks as if it has been hanging in a barn on his Indiana farm for decades.It appeared rusted, said Smoke. Unlimited Speed, and was a gritty symbol of one of the last true racers.Stewart will retire from NASCAR competition Sunday after nearly two decades on the hamster wheel. His years were spent winning races, battling authority and speaking his mind, even when the topic was unpopular, and when no one else had the guts.Hes brash, boorish and a beast in a race car.I dont know that weve ever really had someone like him come into this series, said four-time champion Jeff Gordon, himself a recent retiree.And thats partly why hes leaving. Hes 45 and his heart has never been fully into NASCAR. This series pays the bills and gives him the resources for his passion. Racing on the dirt or on weeknights at the grassroots level.Stewart owns race tracks, teams, a sprint car series and hes part-owner of NASCARs elite Stewart-Haas Racing. So hes not really going anywhere, really. Hell be at NASCAR events on behalf of SHR and its driver lineup and sponsors.The rest of the time? Hell be racing.Stewart has big ideas of racing all over the country next year at the tracks where he feels most at home. Thats where he came from, and hes always longed to return.His love of sprint cars possibly accelerated his retirement and played heavily into a long string of personal tragedies. Friends Jason Leffler and Bryan Clauson died in accidents, Stewart badly broke his leg in a 2013 crash, his car struck and killed a competitor that had walked onto the racing surface to confront him. The family of Kevin Ward Jr. has filed a civil suit against Stewart that is pending.Those closest to Stewart know what an emotional toll the last several years have taken on him, and they understand hiss desire to finally just be able to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants to do it.ddddddddddddIn the month after Wards death, Stewart said hed probably never race a sprint car again.Now, hes lining up as many events as he can.He did not want a retirement tour, and he did not want every week to turn into a celebration of the driver most relatable to fans for his blue collar upbringing and his tendencies like an old A.J. Foyt or Dale Earnhardt Sr.His resume is stacked, three NASCAR championships and one IndyCar title. But it also has two glaring holes: Stewart never won the Daytona 500 or his beloved Indianapolis 500. Earlier this week, the winningest car owner ever at Indy said his biggest regret is that Stewart never drove for Roger Penske in the 500.He brought such emotion and class to the sport and competitiveness, Penske said.That fiery side has led to dustups on and off the track. Hes never backed down from a confrontation, and his acid-tongue and sharp wit make it impossible for anyone to win an argument.If Tony hasnt come after you, then youre not doing something right, said one-time teammate Kyle Busch.Stewart has taken great steps to make this final weekend as low-key as possible. He did one news conference and turned down all interview requests, even to those he never declines.Maybe its a defense mechanism, to take as much emotion as possible out of these last few days. But hes clearly reflected on his time, and knows who he is and whats ahead.Its been a fun 18 years. Not every part of it has been fun. Ive always said what was on my mind whether it was popular or unpopular. I always fought for what I believed in, whether it was safety for other drivers or something etiquette that was going on on the race track or whatever. I can sleep alright knowing that is why I did it.It wasnt because I was trying to be a jerk or something like that, I just always spoke my mind and fought for what I believed in.Hes not another Foyt or Earnhardt or Allison.

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame?welcomes its latest class this weekend, and among the very distinguished honorees is one Shaquille ONeal.

ONeal posed with a picture of the late, great Tennessee coach Pat Summitt and then posted his photo of the pair on Instagram.

TROY, Ala. -- Jordon Varnado hit 10 of 12 field goals to total a career-high 27 points to lead Troy to a dominating 88-59 victory over Alabama A&M on Saturday.Varnado also grabbed five rebounds and blocked two shots. Jeremy Hollimon was 6 of 10 from the floor, making 3 of 4 from distance, for 18 points and Juan Davis Jr. added 12 points and pulled down eight rebounds for the Trojans (5-4).Troy jumped out to a 39-17 advantage to start the game and held a 48-24 halftime lead. The Trojans, who nailed 8 of 15 from beyond the arc in the first half, made 13 of 30 (43.3 percent) for the game. They shot 33 of 69 from the floor while limiting the Bulldogs to 18-of-56 shooting.Alabama A&M is still looking for its first win of the season, falling to 0-7. Tracy Burnett led the Bulldogs with 12 points. Yasmany Tomas Jersey .

Chris Owings Jersey . Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. Robbie Ray Jersey . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. The unbeaten and fourth-ranked Washington Huskies are enjoying their best ranking since the end of the 2000 season, but they are heading into what their coach calls their toughest test of the season.Washington (7-0, 4-0 Pac-12) plays at 17th-ranked Utah (7-1, 4-1) on Saturday afternoon, and Rice-Eccles Stadium will be rocking, further fueled by the energy of having ESPNs College GameDay program on campus.Rice-Eccles has been a great venue this year, said Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, whose team is tied atop the Pac-12 South with Colorado. We have had great support from our fans that makes it a tough place to play for opponents. We need that to be the case this weekend, and we know they will be loud.Washington is coming off its 10th consecutive victory, a 41-17 win over Oregon State at Husky Stadium last week. The Huskies have defeated every opponent this season by at least 24 points, except for an overtime victory at Arizona.Washington has the top-rated defense in the Pac-12 (14.6 points allowed per game), leads the country with in turnover margin (plus-2.0 per game), has the nations No. 2-rated passer (Jake Browning, 199.6 efficiency rating) and the top rusher in the conference (Myles Gaskin, 103.9 yards per game).The Huskies have outscored their opponents 200-24 in the first half.This will by far be our toughest test so far, Washington coach Chris Petersen said of Utah.I know their fans will be really excited. Thats usually what happens. I think there was going to be really good energy in that stadium whether GameDay came or not. This probably just pours a little more energy into the stadium.A prime storyline is first-year starting Utah quarterback Troy Williams. He began his career at Washington, but transferred after the 2014 season, which was Petersens first in Seattle.I told them Id be back. I kept my promise, Williams said of when he left the Huskies.But I built everlasting friendships ... those are my brothers up there. I have the utmost respect for all of them. I just want to show people what I can do and continue to showcase my talents. It just gives it a little extra fire. It was hard going through everything I went through up there.Im just real, real excited to get out there this weekend.Williams has passed for only 221 yards in the past two games -- in a wet--and-windy day at Oregon State and last Saturday at UCLA -- but he hasnt had to do much, other than keep the defense honest with some deep passes.ddddddddddddUtah senior running back Joe Williams has become one of the best stories in college football, coming out of a five-week retirement due to injuries, rushing for 179 yards against the Beavers and a school-record 332 vs. the Bruins. The coaching staff convinced him to come back after other injuries ravaged the position.We were down to our last running back and all of a sudden hes back in the lineup and a huge plus for us, Whittingham said. He pulled away from those UCLA defenders, and they have fast guys. They hand-pick who they want for that secondary and he outran them all.Browning, a sophomore, has completed 118 of 172 passes for 1,709 yards, with 26 touchdowns and only two interceptions. Wide receivers John Ross (115 yards receiving against Oregon State) and Dante Pettis (112) last week became the first pair of Husky wideouts to go over 100 yards receiving in the same game since 2002.Gaskin, a sophomore, already has more than 2,000 career rushing yards.Utahs offense hasnt been dynamic for much of the season, but the Utes are coming off a 52-point effort against a talented UCLA defense. Washingtons is even better. The Huskies have future NFL guys all over their defense -- including free safety Budda Baker, cornerback Sidney Jones and defensive tackle Vita Vea.UW defensive end/outside linebacker Joe Mathis (team-high five sacks) missed last weeks game because of a foot injury and doesnt seem likely to play this week. Utah free safety Marcus Williams, a 2015 first-team all-conference pick, did not play last week at UCLA because of an undisclosed injury and is not listed on this weeks depth chart.If the Huskies still have skeptics, it is because they have not played a team that is currently ranked (Stanford was No. 7 at the time of the meeting but has since fallen way off).I think this has been a pretty focused crew all along, Petersen said.They go to work and practice hard. I will tell you, we expect a lot out of these guys when they come in this building. We do not go through the motions.

ifornia, is a five-star recruit. Baylor and UCLA also are chasing him.UP

It is no secret that trainer Jimmy Takter has enjoyed great success in the Hambletonian Stakes.The 55-year-old Hall of Famer has won the race four times, including each of the past two years, and would become the first trainer in history to three-peat with a win on Saturday. A victory would also give Takter a record-tying fifth triumph, putting him in the company of Stanley Dancer, Billy Haughton and Ben White in that elite club.But what is the secret to his success?The secret, I think, is to stick with what you normally do, Takter said. Most trainers, including me when I was younger, start thinking about it and changing stuff and doing things differently. People start over-doing things, train the horses maybe a little harder, or whatever. I dont think thats smart. I think thats where experience comes in.The horse has no clue its the Hambletonian. The driver and trainer, yes. But the horse has no clue.Takter will send five horses into Saturdays $1 million Hambletonian for 3-year-old trotters at the Meadowlands Racetrack: Bar Hopping, Lagerfeld, Love Matters, Jimmy William, and Reigning Moni.The Hambletonian format calls for any eliminations to be contested the same day as the final. A total of 18 horses entered this years event, requiring two eliminations from which the top five finishers in each division advance to the final. The winner of the final is the Hambletonian champion.Bar Hopping is regarded as Takters top contender and holds the distinction of being the only horse to win a race in which Southwind Frank competed. Bar Hopping won a division of the New Jersey Sire Stakes last year when Southwind Frank went off stride and in June defeated Southwind Frank by a neck in their elimination for the Earl Beal Jr. Memorial.Southwind Frank, who has won 16 of 18 lifetime starts and earned $1.20 million for trainer Ron Burke, is the expected Hambletonian favorite.Bar Hopping, who missed nearly two months of action last year because of sickness, has won three of 17 career races and hit the board a total of 12 times. He heads to the Hambletonian off a win in the Dr. Harry M. Zweig Memorial Main Event on July 24 at Vernon Downs.At least we know hes challenged [Southwind] Frank, Takter said. He beat him fair and square earlier this year. Maybe [Southwind] Frank wasnt at his best. Last year I thought he was very outstanding. But Ronnie is a professional and knows what he is doing. Im sure he is going to have his horse ready as a contender.Lagerfeld was last years Pennsylvania Sire Stakes champion. Jimmy William was limited to one start last season and Love Matters joined Takters stable late in 2015. Reigning Moni punched his ticket to the Hambletonian with a 7-3/4 length win in 1:52 4/5 last Friday in a conditioned race at the Meadowlands.This year I had a bunch of 3-year-olds that I liked early as 2-year-olds, but every single one of them got sick, Takter said. It was a disaster year with the 2-year-olds. I never had a 2-year-old group get sick so much.Takter won his first Hambletonian with Malabar Man in 1997. He won again with Muscle Massive in 2010, then Trixton in 2014 and Pinkman in 2015. He also was the driver of Trixton.The Hambletonian is the biggest race we have, Takter said. No matter how many times you win it, you get that kick out of it. I love to win the big races. Those are my moments.But its also a heck of a race for a horses resume. Pinkman was a gelding, but it was huge for Trixton and Malabar Man and Muscle Massive. Youre set as a stallion if you win that race.The $225,550 U.S. Pacing Championshjp, $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks and $1 million Hambletonian will be featured during a live 90-minute broadcast on CBS Sports Network from 4-5:30 p.m. (EDT) on Saturday.

Darya Domracheva of Belarus was second, 34. Cody McLeod 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. TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona coach Sean Miller called it a typical November game.For his 10th-ranked Wildcats, that meant another blowout over an overmatched opponent.Lauri Markkanen scored 22 points to lead six Arizona players in double figures in Arizonas 95-65 rout of Sacred Heart on Friday night.Fellow freshman Rawle Alkins added 18 points for the Wildcats (3-0). They led by as many as 25 points in the first half and 39 in the second.Arizonas Dusan Ristic had 13 points and a career-high 15 rebounds.Quincy McKnight had 22 points -- 20 in the second half -- and Joseph Lopez 15 for the Pioneers (1-2).November is a month of learning, Miller said. Players are learning, theyre learning each other, theyre learning our system, but the coaching staff is learning on what kind of combinations of players work well, who can do what, what we need to teach and do a better job of.The game was part of the Las Vegas Invitational, as is Monday nights game against Northern Colorado. The Wildcats move on to Las Vegas to play Santa Clara next Thursday.If a team plays four games in a tournament, it gets an extra game on its schedule.The much bigger, quicker Wildcats never trailed turned the game into a blowout in a hurry, despite having a miserable night from 3-point range.The Wildcats were 1 for 15 on 3s before Markkanen made two in a row late in the second half.Miller said the Wildcats are just now learning how good the Finnish freshman Markkanen is on offense.There were times when he was open and the ball didnt find him, Miller said. Then all of a sudden it did and he went on his own personal 8-0 run. ... Lauris efficient. Hes not going to take bad shots. That was about as easy of a 22-point night as Ive seen.Miller noted his team committed seven turnovers, just one in the first half. Point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright didnt have a turnover in his 30 minutes on the court.A pair of Arizona newcomers got the McKale Center crowd rocking with some high-flying plays.In consecutive plays, freshman Kobi Simmons had a backcourt steal and two-handed dunk and junior college transfer Keanu Pinder knoocked the ball away in Sacred Hearts backcourt and got the dunk on a lob pass from Parker Jackson-Cartwright at the other end, and Arizona led 43-18 with 4:17 left in the first half.ddddddddddddRistic had 10 rebounds in the first half, one shy of his career-best for a game. The Wildcats led 49-25 at the break.Sacred Heart coach Anthony Latina lamented his teams 17 turnovers, which resulted in 25 Arizona points.When you play a team that good, you cant give them free points and we did, he said. Now, fortunately we dont play a team that good the rest of the year, unless we make the NCAA Tournament.BIG PICTURESacred Heart lost last seasons league MVP Cane Broome, who transferred to Cincinnati. The Pioneers have some talent but nowhere near enough to stay with Arizona on the road.The Wildcats did what they are supposed to do. They wont really have a challenge until the Las Vegas Invitational matchups next week, when they face Santa Clara and either the winner or loser of the Butler-Vanderbilt game.PAC-12 POUNDINGSIt was the first meeting between the schools and the first for Sacred Heart against a Pac-12 team since playing Washington on Dec. 22, 2004. The Pioneers lost that one 114-55.The Wildcats pounded a Northeast Conference team for the fourth time in the last five seasons.They beat Bryant 100-60 in the 2011-12 season, Farleigh-Dickenson 100-50 in 2013-14 and Mount St. Marys 78-55 in 2014-15.SHAQ IN THE HOUSENBA great Shaquille ONeal was one of those in the crowd at sold-out McKale. He was in town for a visit by his son Shareef. The younger ONeal, a 6-foot-8 junior forward at Crossroads School in Santa Monica, California, is a five-star recruit. Baylor and UCLA also are chasing him.UP NEXTSacred Heart: The Pioneers make the second and final stop on their trip west when they play at Santa Clara Monday night.Arizona: The Wildcats complete a three-game home stand against teams from lesser conferences when they face Northern Colorado on Monday night.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Nigel Johnson launched the ball to the rafters and Corey Sanders ran around the court with his arms raised over his head in jubilation.It was a celebration that could have been mistaken for a team that just caused a major upset. Instead, it was a teams relief from escaping one.C.J. Gettys rebounded Corey Sanders missed layup and scored with six seconds left to give Rutgers the 77-75 win over Hartford on Friday.Corey was just able to split the gap of defenders and get to the rim and I have everyones back. Thats our team motto. I have your back and you have mine, Gettys said. So I was right there for the follow-up and luckily I was able to muster it in.Deshawn Freeman had a career-high 26 points and 10 rebounds for back-to-back double-doubles to help Rutgers escape an upset.When we came out of a huddle and D (Deshawn Freeman) said `I got it, we were down 10 and I felt pretty good. You dont get that often from players. I love when players, especially a player like him with a double-double tonight, says `Coach, we got it. We got it. They did, coach Steve Piekell said. They wanted to give me a heart attack, but they got it. C.J. (Gettys) was great at the end. He was a facilitator. We got him the ball in the middle of the zone and he made the right reads while D was able to finish a lot of plays. So, good leadership and a good team win.Mike Williams hit a 3-pointer with 2:05 left to cut Hartfords once 13-point second-half lead to 73-71 and bring the RAC crowd to its feet.Johnson stole J.R. Lynchs inbounds pass and scored to tie the game at 73 with 1:42 left. Johnsons layup off a pass from Sanders made it 75-73 with 47 seconds remaining.Hartfords George Blagojevic made a layup assisted by Jason Dunne on the following possession to knot the game at 75 with 24 seconds to play.Jalen Ross had 19 points and Dunne had 18 points to lead Hartford.We prepared. We know how good we can be. We just have to finish the game, Hartford coach John Gallagher said. This will be a great learning experience. Theres two ways to look at it -- you can go the devastation route, or you can say we can build off of this. Im going to choose to build off of it.BIG PICTURERutgers: Has its first 6-0 start since 1975-1976, when the team began 31-0 en route to the programs lone Final Four appearance. However, Rutgers hasnt been tested as the Scarlet Knights have not played a team with a winning record.Hartford: The Hawks backcourt seems to be coming together. Ross, averaging 23.2 points per game heading into the game, including two 30-point outings, Ross continued his hot start to the season, while Dunne followed up his first career double-double with another promising performance. Add in Lynch, and the three-guard set that started the game combined for 48 pointsPIKIELL CONTINUES DOMINANCE OF GALLAGHERPikiell has now won 17 of the last 18 games hes coached against Gallagher. The two used to face off regularly in the American East when Pikiell was the head coach at Stony Brook.NO REST FOR THE WEARYRutgers was coming off a 42-hour turnaround after a 7 p.m. start on Wednesday night and has played four games in the last eight days.

After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week.India advanced their lead over England to 298 runs on day three of the second Test in Visakhapatnam, with Virat Kohli hitting fifty. Stuart Broad somewhat allayed concerns over a possible foot injury by taking 2-6 to help reduce the hosts to 40-3 before Kohli - following his first-innings 167 - countered with an unbeaten 56 from 70 balls to see India safely to stumps on 98-3.Earlier, England - resuming the day on 103-5 - were bowled out for 255, with Ben Stokes hitting 70 and Jonny Bairstow 53. Watch the best of the action from Day Three in Visakhapatnam. The pair put on 110 for the sixth wicket, stifling an Indian attack that had ripped through the tourists top order the previous evening.But England couldnt keep Ravichandran Ashwin (5-67) out of the game for long, with the offspinner claiming a first Test five-for against England as India earned a 200-run lead.Englands morning started in strange fashion as Bairstow injured himself while going through his warm-ups on his way out to the middle. It obviously didnt affect him too greatly, however, as he and Stokes continued through to a century stand. Ravichandran Ashwin claimed a first Test five-for against England Ashwin wasted Indias remaining review with his first ball of the day, impulsively calling for DRS thinking hed trapped Bairstow lbw, but it was glove, not pad, which the ball hit.Ashwin could, however, have had Stokes out stumped on 21, but Wriddhiman Saha failed to gather the ball cleanly. Jonny Bairstow was in trouble before even getting to the crease on day three in Visakhapatnam.dddddddddddd From there, Stokes and Bairstow both went serenely through to their fifties, though the latter fell just before lunch, bowled by a beautiful delivery from Umesh Yadav (1-56) which reversed sharply back into the right-hander.India took the second new ball shortly after the interval, but the seamers were wasteful, conceding 28 runs from the opening 4.4 overs.The re-introduction of spin brought the breakthrough, and the key scalp of Stokes, given out lbw in Ashwins second over back.Stokes called for a review, and there seemed to be an inside edge on replay, but it mattered little as a catch was claimed too at silly point. Ben Stokes top-scored with 70 in Englands first innings Ravindra Jadeja (1-57) picked up his first wicket - Zafar Ansari lbw - before Ashwin wrapped up the innings, and claimed his five-for, with Broad and James Anderson trapped in front off consecutive balls, leaving Adil Rashid stranded on 32 not out.India opted not to enforce the follow-on, but struggled during the early exchanges of their second innings, with Broad claiming two wickets in a six-over spell that cost just six runs, with five maidens. Murali Vijay (3) and Lokesh Rahul (10) both fell after England reviews; Vijay given out caught at gully from an inside edge onto his pad, and Rahul getting a faint nick through to Bairstow behind the stumps.Anderson (1-16) added the wicket of Cheteshwar Pujara (1), bowled, after a painstaking 24-ball stay at the crease, but captain Kohli came to Indias rescue.He brought up his fifty, off 63 balls, in the final few overs of the day, sharing in an unbroken 58-run stand with Ajinkya Rahane (22no).Live coverage of the second Test between India and England from Visakhapatnam continues with day four, on Sky Sports 2 from 3.45am on Sunday.

rocess and its the

CLEVELAND -- When the ball disappeared over the outfield wall, Francisco Lindor raised his right fist and took off.Smiling with every stride, Clevelands superstar-in-the-making shortstop sprinted around the bases as if he was being chased.He and the Indians arent slowing down for anything this October.Lindor hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning, and Corey Kluber silenced Torontos booming bats, giving the Indians a 2-0 win over the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Friday night.Lindor connected on an 0-2 changeup from Marco Estrada and tore around the basepaths as the bend-but-dont-break Indians won their fourth straight playoff game in this most unexpected season.I believe in my team. I believe in what we have, said Lindor, the talented 22-year-old who plays as if he has been part of postseason games for a decade. Were just trying to do our thing.Lindor made good use of the Indians resources before his pivotal at-bat, asking designated hitter Carlos Santana for advice on facing Estrada.[Santana] told me to look for a high pitch and stay through the ball, Lindor told ESPNs Marly Rivera. He told me that when hes had success against [Estrada], it has been looking for those high pitches, and thats what I did against him. I looked for the high pitch and then tried to hit it hard straight through the middle.Santana said he told Lindor: If you see a pitch about your waist, then you take a swing.After the game, Lindor came up to me and gave me a hug and said, Thank you, I did what you told me, and look at the result, Santana told Rivera.Kluber, Clevelands ace, pitched 6 1/3 spotless innings before manager Terry Francona turned things over to the Indians best weapon -- their bullpen. Andrew Miller made the Blue Jays look silly, striking out five of the six batters he faced, and closer Cody Allen earned the save with a perfect ninth as the Indians extended their longest postseason winning streak since 1920.The Blue Jays wasted some early scoring chances -- they had six runners in the first three innings -- against Kluber, and their frustration only grew as the night went on. Toronto slugger Jose Bautista struck out three times, and Edwin Encarnacion lost his cool when he was fanned in the eighth, jawing at plate umpire Laz Diaz.It wasnt like we faced the average Joe out there, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of Kluber. Hes one of the elite pitchers in the game, as is Miller, as is Allen. We got some guys on base early. We couldnt get that big hit.After winning their first ALCS game since 2007, the Indians will try to take a 2-0 lead Saturday with Josh Tomlin facing Torontos 20-game winner, J.A. Happ. Tomlin was originally scheduled to start Game 3 but was moved up when Trevor Bauer sustained an odd injury as he sliced open his right pinkie while repairing a drone.Kluber kept flying in the postseason.The right-hander has not allowed a run in 13 1/3 innings this October, and he kept the Blue Jays inside Progressive Field after they teed off against the Texas Rangers in the AL Division Series.Estrada carried a four-hit shutout into the sixth before walking Jason Kipnis with one out. Lindor was in an 0-2 hole before the shortstop drove his homer over the wall in right-center.I thought [Kevin] Pillar was going to catch it, Lindor said. As soon as it went out, I put my hands out. I looked at the dugout, and everybody was going insane.Estrada allowed six hits in Torontos first complete game all year but made one costly mistake.I was trying to bounce it, to be honest with you, Estrada said. Good hitters are going to hit it out, and hes a good hitter.Kluber dodged some early trouble and held the Blue Jays, who hit eight home runs and scored 22 times in their ALDS sweep of Texas, to six hits in the first six innings. The Indians needed every out they could get from Kluber, who shut out Boston for seven innings in his postseason debut 10 days after he injured a quadriceps in a start against Detroit.The 2014 AL Cy Young Award winner, who will certainly get votes this season after winning 18 games, has been the only dependable starter all season for Cleveland, which lost Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar to injuries in September and is now dealing with Bauers mishap.I laughed when I heard, Kipnis said. I dont care, as long as he can pitch for us. Its not as funny if he cant pitch. If he can, [Ill tell him], Youre an idiot, but go get some outs for us now.ODDS AND ENDSKluber became the fifth pitcher to throw at least six scoreless innings in his first two postseason starts. The others were Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson (1905), Joe Niekro (1980-1981), Dave Righetti (1981) and Steve Avery (1991). ... Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-3 and owns a franchise-best .529 batting average in five career playoff games. ... Cleveland OF Coco Crisp equaled the LCS record with two sacrifice bunts. ... Torontos only other postseason complete game was by Jack Morris in the opener of the 1992 ALCS.COMEBACK KIDBlue Jays lefty Francisco Liriano will be eligible to pitch Saturday after recovering from a concussion sustained in the ALDS when he was struck in the head by a line drive. Toronto played with a 24-man roster in the opener as Liriano remained in baseballs seven-day concussion protocol. As a result, RHP Marcus Stroman -- Torontos projected starter in Game 3 -- was available in relief for Game 1.TRAINERS ROOMDevon Travis?will have an MRI on Saturday after reinjuring his right knee when covering first base in the fifth. He sat out the final two games of the ALDS with a bone bruise and is worried its worse.It hurts pretty bad, he said. I jarred my knee a little bit. I felt a sharp pain in my knee.UP NEXTBlue Jays: Happ struck out 11 and allowed one run over seven innings in beating the Indians on July 3. He was second in the AL in wins, going 20-4 with a 3.18 ERA. Happ picked up the victory in Game 2 of the ALDS against Texas, allowing one run in five innings.Indians: Tomlin gave up three homers -- to Martin, Melvin Upton Jr. and Encarnacion -- in a loss to the Blue Jays on Aug. 20. Tomlin went 0-5 in August but has bounced back and given up seven earned runs in 31 2/3 innings over his past six appearances.The Associated Press contributed to this report. Kevin Mirallas Jersey . -- Whether Jeremy Hill deserves a prominent role in LSUs offence this early in the season is a matter for debate.

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. U.S. womens national team coach Jill Ellis has emphasized that Hope Solos suspension stemmed from a `sum total of actions and not just comments the goalkeeper made about Sweden during the Olympics.Solo was suspended for six months and her contract with U.S. Soccer was terminated following the teams disappointing exit from the Rio Games.Sweden eliminated the United States on penalty kicks after a 1-1 draw in the quarterfinals. Afterward, Solo called the Swedes a bunch of cowards for their defensive style of play.Ellis discussed the suspension for the first time in a Q & A interview published on U.S. Soccers website.Over time theres been off the field distractions for which the Federation has taken action. Each time an action has been taken theres been made clear an expectation that this would be the last time such a step would be necessary, Ellis said. Sadly, how Hope handled her post-Olympic comments forced us to make a significant decision. Its not simply a decision made about comments, it was based on the sum total of actions that have unfortunately shone a negative light on our program.Solo wont be eligible for selection to the national team again until February.Solo was also suspended in early 2015 after husband Jerramy Stevens was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in a U.S. Soccer team van while the team was at a Southern California training camp. Solo was with him at the time. The former Seattle Seahawks tight end later pleaded no contest and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and four years on probation. Solo was suspended by U.S. Soccer for 30 days.Solo also faces the possibillity of a trial on misdemeanor domestic violence charges after a 2014 incident at her sisters home, when she was accused of being intoxicated and assaulting her sister and 17-year-old nephew.dddddddddddd. Solo said she was a victim in the altercation. Earlier this year, an appeals court in Washington state rejected Solos request to avoid trial.Following her latest suspension, Solo decided to end her season with the Seattle Reign of the National Womens Soccer League.The suspensions have sullied an otherwise stellar career.She became the first goalkeeper with 100 international shutouts when the United States defeated South Africa 1-0 in Chicago in July. It also was her 150th career win. During the Rio Games she made her 200th appearance in goal for the United States, an international record.Solo won her second straight Golden Glove Award for the best goalkeeper at the Womens World Cup a year ago. Over the course of the tournament in Canada, she had five shutouts and allowed only three goals in seven games. The U.S. won the World Cup for its third title in soccers premier event.Ellis said in the U.S. Soccer interview that the team will look to develop goalkeepers in the run-up to the 2019 World Cup in France.After the Olympics the plan was always to prepare for 2019 and that means investing in the other goalkeepers and getting them playing time. Thats still the process and its the same for every position, she said. Everything right now is building towards 2019 and our future.

vand championship are just fr

Former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre says he has legally terminated his contract with the UFC, after negotiations for a comeback fight stalled in 2016.During an appearance on The MMA Hour on Monday, St-Pierre -- who vacated his UFC title and stepped away from professional fighting in late 2013 -- said the UFC did not meet a recent deadline he and attorney James Quinn gave the promotion to book his next fight.As a result, St-Pierre (25-2) said he considers himself a free agent.Right now, Im a free agent, St-Pierre said. You heard it right, Im a free agent. My lawyer terminated the contract with the UFC.In a statement, the UFC said it still considers St-Pierre a rostered athlete: Georges St-Pierre remains under an existing agreement with [UFC parent company] Zuffa, LLC as his MMA promoter. Zuffa intends to honor its agreement with St-Pierre and reserves its rights under the law to have St-Pierre do the same.Its well-known that the two sides have been in negotiations regarding St-Pierres potential?return, but UFC president Dana White has repeatedly stated in the media that he doesnt think St-Pierre truly wants to fight again.According to St-Pierre, who fights out of Montreal, negotiations began in February. St-Pierres previous contract made a return somewhat complicated because that deal?was signed before the UFC entered an exclusive apparel agreement with Reebok in 2014. St-Pierre said the negotiations were back and forth, adding that what he asked for was reasonable.The nine-time defending champion said a deal was close earlier this year, prior to the UFCs announcement of a $4 billion sale to California-based talent agency WME-IMG in July. The change in ownership threw off the deal, which had been negotiated by previous owner Lorenzo Fertitta.I think we were close to agreement towards the end, until the big news arrived, St-Pierre said. News was the UFC got sold, and we were told everything was put on ice until the new owners took charge. So we waited for weeks without any news from the new owners. They said Lorenzos offer was off the table.Negotiations had been targeting a return at UFC 206 on Dec. 10 in Toronto. St-Pierre said he even entered the UFCs anti-doping program in August in order to meet a required four-month testing window before returning to active competition.Once new ownership took over, St-Pierre says he was told the UFC would need to invest a large amount of money to reintroduce him to the promotions new fan base -- which St-Pierre found odd. St-Pierre is one of the UFCs biggest stars ever, and his fight against Jake Shields at UFC 129 in April 2011 generated $12.1 million in Toronto.I find it a little funny, to tell you the truth, St-Pierre said. I know its a lie, but sometimes I really believe -- I start asking myself, Do they believe what they are saying? Are they so caught up in what theyre saying, they believe it? Im pretty confident if I would have fought in Toronto, I would have sold out the Toronto stadium in a few minutes. Im that confident. Im sure the fans have not forgot about me.Despite multiple ACL surgeries in his past, St-Pierre said he feels at [his] best after the long layoff. He hasnt fought since a successful title defense against Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 in November 2013.St-Pierre offered no plans for his immediate future. He admitted he did not know whether the UFC would attempt to intervene if he signs with another promotion.I really dont know, St-Pierre said. I enter really unknown territory right now. Ive never been in this situation before. Im going to listen to my team of advisers and see what they believe is the best move, and well go from there.I have never been afraid to stand up for what I believe is right. Nat Berhe Jersey .ca!

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- When Shaquille ONeal was 10 years old, his father made a prediction.Friday night when his son became a Hall of Famer, it was realized.Shaq and Allen Iverson headlined the 10-member Class of 2016 enshrined into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. One of the most star-packed classes in recent memory, it also featured international star Yao Ming, WNBA great Sheryl Swoopes, coach Tom Izzo, and owner Jerry Reinsdorf, an architect in the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls championship teams of the 1990s.If I know my father, hes up there arguing with Wilt (Chamberlain) that his son is the best big man in the game, Shaq said.Posthumous honorees were: 27-year NBA referee Darell Garretson; John McLendon, the first African-American coach in a professional league; Zelmo Beaty, the former NBA and ABA star who led Prairie View to an NAIA title in 1962; and Cumberland Posey, who is also a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.Shaq was an instant box office draw during his career because of his mammoth frame and rim-shaking dunks. But he also exhibited a personality that was as playful was it was engaging. He showed off all of it on Friday.He had the final speech of the night, a humorous dissertation that spanned his long journey in the sport.His speech had serious moments like thanking his parents, Phil Harrison and Lucille ONeal, for giving him the discipline and drive that drove his NBA dream.But he also tossed in light moments. He thanked former Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant for helping him win three NBA titles, but also for getting me pushed off the team and traded to Miami.Before host Ahmad Rashad could even introduce Iverson, the first mention of his name started a roar of cheers throughout the assembled audience.Dressed in all black, former MVP known as A.I., blew kisses has tears began to form in his eyes.Thank God for loving me and blessing me, Iverson said, to be the man that I am and having no regrets for the man that I am. A man that my family loves, my teammates love and my fans love.Fighting tears throughout, Iverson thanked former Georgetown coach John Thompson for saving my life.(After) the incident happened in high school and all that was taken away...no other schools would recruit me anymore, Iverson recalled. My mom went to Georgetown and begged him to give me a chance. And he did.He said he later left Georgetown only as an OK basketball player.But once I started to lissten to Larry Brown and take constructive criticism, I learned how much of a great, great coach that he really is.dddddddddddd ... Thats when I became an MVP.Iverson saved his final thank you for wife Tawanna.Youre just the best to me, he said. I want you to walk around and be proud of yourself that you are a Hall of Famer.Two of the themes on the night were family and journeys. That was the essence of Swoopes speech, who was thankful of her path from tiny Brownsfield, Texas, and that her cancer-stricken mother, Louise, was able to see it.What a ride its been, she said.The 7-foot-6 Yaos arrival from China to the NBA in 2002 instantly helped bring the game to a broader international audience.He was Fridays first inductee, an honor which he joked that should have gone to Iverson.You know why? Because I need more practice than him, Yao said to applause from the crowd and a laugh from Iverson.Yao also thanked his early mentors in China, former NBA Commissioner David Stern for his vision in wanting Yao to play in the league, as well his first teammates on the Houston Rockets. He also singled is former NBA coaches, including Rudy Tomjonavich and Jeff Van Gundy.I will always consider you my family, Yao said. I am Texan and Houston Rocket for life.Izzo has become the face of the blue-collar Michigan State team while leading it to seven Final Fours and the NCAA championship in 2000.He thanked his parents, Carl and Dororthy, for being his first mentors. The 90-year-old Dorothy was in attendance, but Carl passed away last September.Izzo briefly got choked up as he spoke of his father, who he said instilled in him a work ethic that remains with him today.The seven Final Fours and championship are just frosting on the cake, Izzo said.Reinsdorf, the longtime Bulls owner, chronicled what led him to purchase the Bulls in 1984. It was a move he said legendary New York Yankees coach George Steinbrenner panned, telling him hed never make any money.He enjoyed proving him wrong.Its been a great life, he said. I know its the fourth quarter, but Im hoping for overtime.Like his father, Shaq too has a wish.One day when some father quizzes his sons on the greats of the game, I hope Shaquille ONeal will be the answer, he said.---Follow Kyle Hightower on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/khightower China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Online ' ' '

DETROIT -- Dario Franchitti won his second poll of the season Friday and the 31st of his career. The Chip Ganassi Racing driver, though, will start 11th Saturday in the first of two Detroit Grand Prix races. He was handed a 10-grid-spot penalty for making an unapproved engine change at Indianapolis. Franchitti earned the top spot in qualifying Friday with a lap of 1:19.3311 and reached 106.642 mph on Belle Isles 2.36-mile street course. E.J. Viso, who qualified second, will start up front followed by Mike Conway, James Jakes and defending IndyCar champion Ryan Hunter-Reay. Viso matched the best qualifying performance of his career and Jakes was a career-best fourth in qualifying. Franchitti fared well on a rain-slicked track despite not getting much out of the morning practice session because he hit a wall, sending his car to the shop. "Took the right front corner off," he recalled. "The Target boys had a busy morning rebuilding the car. So, I really had no experience on the track really apart from what I had when he last raced here." Franchitti finished second last year, after starting 14th, in an event spoiled by shoddy roads. He won one of his 31 races at the 1999 Detroit Grand Prix. IndyCar is having a pair of full-length races on the same track in a weekend in Detroit, but Franchitti doubts any drivers in the 25-car field will race carefully because they have to also compete on Sunday. "These (cars) can be rebuilt quite quickly," he said. "I think both races will be aggressive. " "This track, I heard Ryan say it, by its nature requires quite an aggressive style all the time. Youre really on edge the whole way round." Sharks Jerseys China . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve.

Despite the cost, effort and an improved steroid test, its possible that very few -- if any -- positives will be detected, Dr. Richard Budgett told The Associated Press in an interview. "We just dont know what the results from Torino will be," Budgett said. Cheap Sharks Jerseys . PAUL, Minn. Cheap Stitched Sharks Jerseys .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. The Gold Coast beckons for two of Tony McEvoys two-year-olds after a one-two finish in the main juvenile race at Ballarat.Despatch and Nistaan provided the quinella for McEvoy in the Magic Millions 2YO Clockwise Classic on Saturday.The pair should now have earned enough prizemoney to tackle $3 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic at the Gold Coast in January.Ridden by Luke Nolen, Despatch ($9) held off stablemate Nistaan ($10) by a short head, with the $2.70 favourite, American Genius, two lengths away in third.Despatch and Nistaan were part of a group of six horses McEvoy trialled at Ballarat in the clockwise direction over three seperate sessions.McEvoys Melbourne foreman Michael Shepherdson said Despatch and Nistaan had trialled well and the stable believed they were the best placed to handle the Ballarat Cup meeting.Despatch jumped cleaner in his trial aand we thought he would put himself up there while the other guy, when he gets to a bigger track and has the chance to wind up, that will suit him, Shepherdson said.dddddddddddd.The idea in coming here and trialling was to give them as much experience as we can and to get some prizemoney to make it worthwhile to go to the Gold Coast.Having that prizemoney in the bank they can go up there now and youre nearly guaranteed a start.Despatchs victory was the fourth individual win from 14 two-year-old starters this season for McEvoy, who went on a spending spree at the yearling sales earlier in 2016.The McEvoy stable brought up a race-to-race double when Dollar For Dollar took out the Suez McKellar Mile at his first start since April.
