SEATTLE -- Washington middle linebacker Azeem Victor is expected to miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery for a broken lower right leg, coach Chris Petersen announced Monday, the second major injury loss for the Huskies defense in recent weeks. cheap jerseys .There is no timeline yet for Victors recovery but the expectation is the junior wont be back this season. Petersen was noncommittal when asked if there was any chance Victor could recover in time for a bowl game.Its OK. Its not going to be a real long-term thing, Petersen said. Its a bone and those things will heal quickly. I dont know exactly what the timeline is but its probably as good as it could be in terms of all those things.Victor was injured in the second quarter of No. 7 Washingtons 26-13 loss to Southern California on Saturday. Victor was in on the tackle of USCs Justin Davis on a running play, but immediately came up hobbling. He was on the field for several minutes getting tended to by medical personnel, who put an air cast on Victors leg on the field before he was taken off on a cart.Victor leads Washington with 68 tackles this season. He was regarded as a potential second-day pick in the NFL draft if he left after his junior season.So really when it was all said and done it was probably more positive than we were first thinking, Petersen said. Sometimes when you go into surgery and all that its all this kind of stuff but it was pretty straightforward from what I understand.Its the second major loss for the Huskies on that side of the ball after sack leader Joe Mathis underwent surgery earlier this month for a foot injury. Mathis is also expected to be out for the season, although The Seattle Times reported last week that Mathis is hopeful of possibly being able to return for a bowl game.Petersen joked Monday that no team other than Alabama could have the depth on the roster to withstand losing two top defensive players and not have any drop off.I dont know if anyone does that. Maybe Alabama. I dont know, he said. I think every coach in America, for the most part, you get a really good player, you lose them, you might have a really good young player but theyre just not there. I dont know if you ever get there.Redshirt freshman D.J. Beavers is listed as the starter with Victor out. Beavers stepped in after Victors injury on Saturday and finished with six tackles. But he also had some of his inexperience exposed by USC.Linebacker is one area where Washington still lacks experienced depth. Along with Beavers, the other options appear to be freshman Brandon Wellington and sophomore Ben Burr-Kirven.I think he filled in pretty well, Petersen said of Beavers. He made some tackles, played aggressive, played tough. Its hard when you lose a player like Azeem for sure but its not like `We have no chance type thing. He was right there playing physical like a linebacker should. Hes had a lot of good reps throughout the season and now hes going to have a lot more.---More AP college football: nfl jerseys china .

CHICAGO -- New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault felt so good about Antti Raantas return to Chicago that he kept Henrik Lundqvist on the bench for the second straight night. cheap jerseys .Turned out quite well for Vigneault and company.Raanta made 26 saves against his former team, Nick Holden scored 55 seconds into overtime and the Rangers blanked the Blackhawks 1-0 on Friday.It was great to come here and play, Raanta said. A little nervous, but it was a good thing it ended like this.Derek Stepan passed from the boards to a streaking Holden in the middle of the ice, and he beat Scott Darling on the stick side for his fourth goal of the season. Darling was going for his second straight shutout while subbing for injured starter Corey Crawford, but he had to settle for a season-high 36 stops in another solid performance.Raantas played great, made some big saves, Darling said. I wish I could redo that one in overtime.Raanta made his NHL debut with Chicago in 2013 and was teammates with Darling for one season before he was traded to New York. He improved to 15-0-3 in 20 career appearances at the United Center.The 27-year-old Raanta had 17 saves in Thursdays 2-1 victory at Winnipeg, and Vigneault opted to give him a second straight start because of his recent play and his success in Chicago.Any team in this league, the way it is now, needs two goaltenders to be able to have success, Vigneault said, and were very fortunate that we have two goaltenders that can do a good job for us.Antti came up real big back to back and its good for our team and very good for him also.Marian Hossa appeared to have the go-ahead goal for the Blackhawks when he shot it between the legs of Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh and Raanta 6 minutes into the third. But Vigneault challenged the play and it was waived off when a replay review showed Hossa was offside.Thats a tough one. I wasnt even noticing it was close to offside, but with todays technology and this new rule, its a game of inches, Hossa said. They created this new rule and we have to deal with it, but its frustrating, because the league wants to increase scoring and now I think more goals are disallowed because of this one.The Blackhawks played without defenseman Brent Seabrook, who was sidelined by an upper-body injury. Captain Jonathan Toews missed his eighth straight game with an upper-body injury, and Crawford missed his fourth in a row after he had an emergency appendectomy last weekend.New York forward Rick Nash was sidelined for the second straight game by an upper-body injury. Nash is tied for second on the Rangers with 11 goals.While each team was missing some star power due to injuries, Raanta and Darling put on quite a show.Raanta made a great glove save on Patrick Kanes one-timer early in the first and had a dazzling stop on Richard Paniks wide-open look in the middle in the second. The 6-foot-6 Darling made a couple terrific saves in rapid succession in the second, denying Stepan on the doorstep before getting over to knock away Jesper Fasts prime opportunity on a 2-on-1.Raanta got some help in the third when Mats Zuccarello swept a loose puck away from the goal line with 2:20 left.Game notes It was Raantas first shutout of the season and No. 5 for his career. ... New York became the first NHL team with 100 goals this season. ... Rangers F Jimmy Vesey returned to the lineup after missing a game with an upper-body injury. Nash, D Adam Clendening and RW Josh Jooris were scratched. ... The Blackhawks are 6-2-2 against the Eastern Conference this season. ...

Essendons whopping $9.8 million loss has laid bare the financial toll of their AFL supplements debacle.A few hours after the AFL officially stripped Jobe Watson of his 2012 Brownlow Medal, the Bombers had even worse news on Tuesday night for their long-suffering fans.They confirmed the huge financial hit, which has put them just over $9 million into debt.Essendon said most of the loss relates directly or indirectly to Januarys Court of Arbitration of Sport verdict against 34 current and past players, including Watson.CAS ruled against the players over doping charges related to the clubs disastrous 2012 supplements regime.The doping bans severely weakened Essendons AFL side and they finished last.Essendon chief executive Xavier Campbell said they had a unique set of challenges this season.While we’ve been stringent in our financial operations, a number of one-off costs severely impacted the financial result,” he added.“Shortly after the CAS decision, the board and administration implemented serious measures to respond to these challenges, including a range of cost cutting measures and identifying greater efficiencies across the business.“With the abnormal costs to our business now largely behind us, we are confident that our underlying business model, debt reduction plan and strategic priorities, will return Essendon to a position of strength in the coming years. cheap nfl jerseys. ssendon said the net additional cost of player compensation claims and legal fees was $4.5 million.Additionally, they had to fork out $1.5 million for short-term player contracts so they could field an AFL team.They also lost $3.1 million in reduced gate takings and other revenue.Essendon took another hit of $806,000 as they wrote off assets at their old Windy Hill ground.We expect debt levels to peak during 2017 and our strong cash flows from normal operations will then allow us to begin paying down the debt, Campbell added.“Despite these issues, we have taken a number of important steps to ensure a positive future for our club both on and off the field and I am confident we can now transition into a new era with a strong sense of optimism and purpose.Essendon will welcome back most of their banned players next season, including Watson.They will hold their annual general meeting on December 19. Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For SaleCheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '
Brett Kimmorley lavishes praise on two of the NRLs biggest names as he wraps up another busy round of action in the latest edition of Set of Six. Juventus Moise Kean Jersey.Warriors let supporters down...againThere was a couple of sides at the weekend that had everything to play for, but their attitude and mindset were way off. One team, for which that comes as little surprise, was the Warriors. They had so much to play for, were playing at home and had been playing some good footy, yet they went to the break down 31-6.But thats just where the Warriors are at as a football side and why you can never tip them with any great confidence. They proved to us at the weekend that they can still break your heart even when you think they may have just nailed down a winning formula. It must be pure hell for their fans.Dragons, Bunnies finally find some attackSomething that was great to see was a couple of sides playing some football, and by that I mean ad-lib football. St George Illawarra, on the back of having three of their better players return from injury, went out and threw the ball around and came up with 32 points. It was a local derby against the Sharks which sometimes means the form guide goes out the window, but the Dragons actually played a really good style of football that was nice to watch for a change.I think they only scored above 20 points four times last year, so it was good to see them produce some quality attack. Souths, meanwhile, were a different side with Adam Reynolds running game on song. The Bunnies also played a little bit more ad-lib football, and I think Damian Cook changes the side a lot due to the fact hes an active dummy-half and can draw in some defenders. The other big change was Greg Inglis move back to fullback; they just got the balance of their spine correct. So it made for a nice change watching both the Dragons and Bunnies this weekend.Bulldogs are the gurus of Golden PointThe Bulldogs continue to get it done in Golden Point. Again, it looked like they were beaten in the last 10 minutes against Manly on Thursday night; they looked shot. But as soon as it goes to Golden Point, they just seem to have this knack of being able to get away with the win.I think theyve had 12 Golden Point games over the last couple of seasons of which theyve won nine, while another one ended in a draw. Thats a pretty good record. Youve got to give a lot of credit to Des Hasler for that record; theyre such a well-drilled side who can handle the pressure. And they obviously know how to work towards a Golden Point win - thats a good skill to have as we get edge closer to the semi-finals.Just run the ball, AnthonyAfter an extended period of below-par performances, Broncos five-eighth Anthony Milford is well and truly back to form. Brisbane have been a shadow of the side that started the season so well recently, but they finally rediscovered that kind of footy against the Eels.It was pretty simple really; it was Milford running the football. There was no magic switch or piece of rocket science to the Broncos ball-playing, they just backed Milford to run the ball and it paid off big time. They scored some nice tries and it seemed like he had more energy about him and just wanted to get the ball in his hands.So that was a nice sign if youre a Brisbane fan and it looks like they might have got out of their rut at just the right time.Top four looks all but certainWhile we still have Canberras clash with Melbourne to come on Monday night, Im going to say that the top four looks like its settled. If the Raiders win on Monday night there will be a five-point gap between team four and team five, and with the top-four being such an important finish in our game - due to the second chance it gives you - we may well have our genuine premiership hopes before us.It certainly looks like the top four is all but sorted to me, and I guess that just leaves the others to fight it out for positions five through eight to see whos going to finish where.Hayne Plane delivers in Sydneys westTwo sell-out crowds and two amazing atmospheres: how good is it having Jarryd Hayne back in the NRL? That looked like a sensational afternoon in Campbelltown on Saturday. Obviously hes probably not where he needs to be fitness-wise to play fullback just yet, but regardless he is still a very special football player.To see what he did last week after being out of the game for 18 months, and to back it up this weekend, at five-eighth, is just extraordinary. Defensively, his edge looks so controlled and then nailing that field goal with seven seconds left just goes to show the reason why we love having him back in the NRL.He is a very special football player, and on the back of that the Titans are set for some ride - one they hope will end with a trip to the semi-finals. Wholesale Juventus Jerseys . Their experience showed Tuesday as the No. 10 Badgers blunted a Saint Louis surge to win 63-57 and advance to face West Virginia in Wednesdays finals of the Cancun Challenge. Juventus Blaise Matuidi Jersey .C. -- Manny Malhotra had two goals and an assist, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. . On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. A month after starting his record-breaking AFL career at Geelong, all Corey Enright wanted to do was end it.The teenager from Kimba, the SA country town halfway between Perth and Sydney, had a bad case of homesickness.So his parents Garry and Maxine flew to Victoria in the summer of 1999-2000 and met Cats officials, including senior coach Mark Thompson.They were very, very concerned that he was homesick and wasnt going to last in Geelong, Thompson told AAP.They were prepared to take him home - and Im so glad they didnt.I was nervous and I just remember begging them to give us a bit more time.I was confident hed be okay and wed be good enough to get him through that period.Thompson credits ex-Cats player Paul Brown, then working at the club in player welfare, for helping Enright settle at Geelong.He (Brown) was the guy who got close to him, made the extra effort ... you involve them, you get him included in things to do outside of football training, Thompson said.The meeting between parents and club proved one of the AFLs great sliding-doors moments.Corey would have miissed out, too. Juventus Fan Gear. It was lucky, Thompson said.After some initial struggles with location, injury and form, Enright quickly found his feet.Thompson was stumped when asked to remember the last time he saw Enright play a bad game.Once he got going after a couple of years, it was almost like you had to teach him how to play, and give him the games to play, and then once he learned the game, you didnt have to coach him any more, Thompson saidHe just turned up.He was just easy to coach and a great bloke.You just sit back and enjoy hes a Geelong player, because he was such a good player.Thompson, who coached the Cats to the 2007 and 09 premierships, rated Enright among the best five players during his time at the club.He adds Enright is also easily among the best five people he has met during his decades in the game.Him and his best mate - (Matthew) Scarlett. Both of them are top blokes, Thompson said.Theyre wired the same way, I think. Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaWholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '
GREEN BAY, Wis. Cheap Air Max Australia For Sale . -- A full week of practice could help newly acquired running back Knile Davis get up to speed in the Green Bay Packers injury-depleted backfield.And a swelling-reducing glove may help rookie Don Jackson contribute, too.Davis had a long weekend to study the Packers offensive playbook after arriving in an Oct. 18 trade from Kansas City -- less than 72 hours before the Packers victory over the Chicago Bears last Thursday night. Coach Mike McCarthy was reluctant to play Davis with so little time to learn the schemes, so Davis didnt see action on offense until late in the fourth quarter, carrying twice for 1 yard.Theres definitely some similarities (to Kansas Citys playbook). Ive just got to get the terminology and verbiage together, Davis said. Im definitely excited.McCarthy said Davis spent the weekend working with running backs coach Ben Sirmans to get a better feel for the offense entering Sundays game at Atlanta.Hes part of the game plan, McCarthy said of Davis. I like what he brings to the table. Hes a natural football player, someone thats played a lot of football, was successful obviously in college, and hes been in the league. I think this is just more of a language and communication gap that you have to fill. Hes very bright. Hes making progress.Jackson, meanwhile, took part in Wednesdays practice after X-rays did not show a fracture in his left hand, which he injured against Chicago. In an effort to reduce swelling, Jackson wore a special therapeutic glove throughout practice and was able to carry the ball with both hands -- something he couldnt do after the injury occurred.Its already looking better, Jackson said. The trainers, theyre pretty optimistic about it. Weve still got (four) days, so weve still got some time. And its already taken, I think, a dramatic leap from Sunday till now. I couldnt even like have anybody touch it, and now its to the point where I can move it a little bit, I have a little bit of grip.Still, McCarthy said Jackson must take part in Thursdays contact-filled, in-pads practice to gauge how realistic it is for him to play against the Falcons.Its important for him to go through team work, especially (Thursday). He needs to go through the half-line drill and the full physical team, McCarthy said. That will obviously give us direction on how we proceed Sunday.If the Packers have both Davis and Jackson at their disposal against the Falcons, they wont have to rely as heavily on Aaron Rodgers. He threw 56 passes -- five fewer than his single-game career high -- and finished with a career-best 39 completions against the Bears.It would also allow McCarthy to pick and choose how he uses receiver-turned-halfback Ty Montgomery, who carried nine times for 60 yards and caught 10 passes for another 66 yards against the Bears.The Packers are in such dire straits at running back because they lost starter Eddie Lacy for at least eight weeks (ankle/foot). Green Bay has been without No. 2 running back James Starks because of a knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery on Oct. 16. Its unclear how soon hell return.(Montgomery) and Don spent some extra time with me the night before (the Bears game) talking about different things, and Im sure that will happen this week. Maybe well get Knile in on it as well this time to make sure hes ready to go, Rodgers said. Weve got to go with the guys weve got and make sure theyre ready to play.Game notes Despite their mini-bye after their Thursday night victory, the Packers had a whopping nine players on their injury report. In addition to the players not expected to play against Atlanta -- Starks, tight end Jared Cook (ankle) and cornerbacks Damarious Randall (groin) and Quinten Rollins (groin) -- three other players were slight surprises: linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring), wide receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Montgomery (illness). . Matthews did not practice Wednesday and apparently injured his hamstring against the Bears. Montgomery spoke with reporters after practice and is expected to play, while Cobb was a limited participant. . The Packers added rookie center Jacob Flores to the practice squad. He spent the offseason and training camp with the Packers after signing with the team, but was cut at the end of camp.---AP NFL website: and Clearance Air Max Australia Store .

This is something me and Floyd have been working on for some time.Ellerbe initially tried to make a deal for Davis to challenge titleholder Jason Sosa for his version of the title, but that deal fell apart, so they pursued Pedraza.We tried to make the Sosa fight, but it didnt happen for a number of reasons, Ellerbe said. Were excited to work with Lou. We have a tremendous card Jan. 14, and this fight is just part of it. Gervonta is a straight killer. Hes a very good boxer, but hes also a tremendous puncher.

CANTON, Ohio -- An emotional and invigorating Hall of Fame weekend came to a grinding halt Sunday night when the Packers-Colts game was canceled because of poor field conditions. Wholesale Air Max Shoes .One day after Brett Favre led the eight-member class of 2016 into the hall, its president, David Baker announced the cancellation after discussing problems with the turf with both teams. He said it was a safety issue and that all fans would be fully refunded for ticket purchases, which will cost the hall several million dollars.This is a hard decision, but we know it is the right decision, Baker said. In some respects a hard decision because of the impact it has. This is an important game to the people in Canton.The NFL and NFL Players Association said in a statement: We are very disappointed for our fans, but player safety is our primary concern, and as a result, we could not play an NFL game on this field tonight.Baker noted that the field was new and had been approved when inspected after its first installation. But paint congealed at midfield and in the end zone, hardening those areas. Workers used a variety of equipment to smooth the artificial surface. Rubber pellets used in the turf came loose and were scattered in several spots and needed to be removed, as well.We know a lot of you came a long way, Baker told the crowd, which booed when his name was announced. Here at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, we have the greatest respect for players and for player safety. As a result of some painting on the field today, some questions arose.Team physicians also were consulted.We thought we would be able to remediate it by delaying the game for as much as an hour, Baker added. But in the end, if its remotely close to unsafe, we conferred with the league, we think the best thing to do is respect the safety of the players. Its the only thing to do.I can tell you, I had a son who played in this league. If it happened with him on the field, I would have wanted someone to make the same decision.This was not the first cancellation of an NFL exhibition game -- the Hall of Game contest was not played in 2011 because of the lockout -- but it was the most high-profile preseason match to be called off.In 2001, a new artificial surface at Philadelphias Veterans Stadium was deemed too dangerous for the Eagles to play the Ravens.Both teams walked onto the field at 8 p.m., moments before the game would have kicked off, and the players saluted the crowd. When the halls class of 2016 was introduced the stands remained relatively full for that. But then many fans departed the stadium even though the halftime show featuring Lee Greenwood was held.Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he was disappointed but understood the cancellation. He was looking to find out about a lot of these young players.Packers coach Mike McCarthy saluted the many Packers fans who came to Canton to see Favre inducted into the hall.We really were looking forward to performing tonight, McCarthy said. You get tired of practicing against yourself and you get to play a real game.Many of the thousands of Packers fans in Canton returned Sunday to Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. They sat watching highlights of Favres speech and of Friday nights concert featuring Tim McGraw before they were told about the games cancellation.Also inducted were Tony Dungy, Marvin Harrison, Orlando Pace, Kevin Greene, Ken Stabler, Dick Stanfel and Ed DeBartolo Jr.---AP NFL website: and Cheap Air Max Online .

PHOENIX -- As if the Arizona Coyotes have not gone through enough this season . Cheap Air Max 2017 ...Arizona lost its fourth straight game Thursday and also lost key contributor Brad Richardson for an extended period when he suffered a two broken bones in his right leg in a 3-2 overtime loss at Vancouver on Thursday.San Jose, meanwhile, looks to finish a six-game road trip on a high note when it visits the Coyotes on Saturday at Gila River Arena.At the least, the Coyotes are expected to start No. 1 goaltender Mike Smith, who made his first appearance in a month in a 2-1 overtime loss at Calgary on Wednesday. Smith had not played since suffering a lower-body injury early in a 7-4 loss at Ottawa in the second game of the season Oct. 18.San Jose (9-8) is three points behind Pacific Division-leading Anaheim. The Sharks lost to Pittsburgh in the Stanley Cup Finals last year.The Coyotes (5-9-2) have 12 points, the fewest in the league, although they have played two fewer games than all but one of the teams in the Pacific.The Sharks are 3-2 on the trip but have lost the last two games while scoring only two goals. They were 0-for-6 on the power play in a 3-2 loss at St. Louis on Thursday.Weve got to find a way to cash in when we get the chance, coach Pete DeBoer said.San Jose will be without center Tomas Hertl, who suffered a lower body injury against St. Louis and returned to the Bay Area for further evaluation Friday.Defenseman Brett Burns leads the Sharks with six goals and is tied with center Joe Pavelski for the team lead with 14 points. Pavelski has five goals and center Logan Couture has four.Sometimes it feels like were forcing plays through bodies, through sticks, Couture said. Other times if feels like were not shooting the puck, not getting motion toward the net, not getting second and third opportunities. Feels like were one shot and out, which isnt us. We usually shoot the puck, get it back, shoot it again.Richardson suffered fractures to his right tibia and right fibula in a collision with Vancouver defenseman Nikita Tryamkin midway through the second period Thursday in the loss to the Canucks.Richardson, who scored his fifth goal of the season as the Coyotes took a 2-0 lead, underwent surgery in Vancouver on Friday morning and was stabilized, the Coyotes said.Hes a real heart-and-soul player, Arizona coach Dave Tippett told the teams website. Were thin at center ice and we lose a key guy there, it takes a toll on us.The Coyotes did not announce a timetable for Richardsons return, but it appears his second season with the team is in jeopardy.Richardson, 31, is tied for second on the team in goals and tied for third with nine points. He is in the second year of a three-year, $6.25 million contract, and was signed as a free agent to add a veteran presence to a young team. He had 11 goals and a career-high 31 points last season, his 11th in the league.In his absence, young centers Christian Dvorak and Dylan Strome could receive more playing time. Strome, 19, was the Coyotes first-round pick in the 2015 draft, the third player taken overall. He played Thursday after missing the previous four games a healthy scratch.Center Martin Hanzal, an unrestricted free agent next spring, had been mentioned in trade rumors, but it appears he is less likely to be moved now, if the Coyotes had ever considered a deal in the first place. Hanzal recently returned after missing five games with a lower body injury.Coyotes wing Shane Doan, who played on Richardsons line, had his 553rd assist on Richardsons goal Thursday, tying Thomas Steen for first place on the franchise list. Max 95 Sale China .

LEWISTON, N.Y. -- Maryland coach Brenda Frese and her sixth-ranked Terrapins found a nice way to cap their weekend getaway to upstate New York.Freshman point guard Destiny Slocum had career highs with 25 points and seven assists as Maryland cruised to a 96-64 victory over Niagara on Sunday. The Terrapins scored on seven of their first eight possessions and forced five turnovers in opening the game on a 16-2 run. They led 58-32 at halftime.It was really important that the five of us who started came out and set the tone, Slocum said. That was our mindset, that we needed to start strong.Frese had accompanied All-American honorable mention Shatori Walker-Kimbrough to the Pan-American Games in Toronto last summer and took the opportunity to visit Niagara Falls. She wondered, Why havent we ever taken our team up here? That led to Maryland scheduling its first game at Niagara, and the team visited the namesake falls on Saturday.It was sensational, Frese said.So were the Terrapins. Brionna Jones and Walker-Kimbrough each chipped in 16 points for Maryland, which failed to score 100 points for the first time this season. Still, the Terrapins were efficient on offense, shooting 53.7 percent while making a season-high 11 3-pointers on 26 attempts (42.3 percent). They assisted on 26 of 36 field goals. It was their second straight game with 26 assists.Not completely satisfied, but I thought we were very unselfish, Frese said. We let the game come to us.Maryland held Niagara to 37.3 percent shooting and forced 18 turnovers that turned into 24 points.Niagaras 64 points were the most allowed by a Maryland opponent this season. Victoria Rampado led the Purple Eagles (1-3) with 24 points and five rebounds.Their point guard is one of the best freshmen Ive seen in 20 years of basketball, Niagara coach Jada Pierce said of Slocum. Wholesale Air Max Shoes. BIG PICTUREAfter winning their first three home games by an average of 55 points, the Terrapins rolled to another blowout win in their road opener. Maryland went 17-2 in road/neutral games last season.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Terrapins havent done anything to merit dropping out of the top 10 for the first time since Jan. 12, 2015. They could move up a spot after No. 2 Baylor lost at No. 3 Connecticut, but voters may not penalize the Bears for losing on the road to the four-time defending NCAA champion. Maryland has not played a ranked team yet.FRESH TALENTMore than half of Marylands points (49) came from its top-rated recruiting class. Slocum did the most damage, but fellow McDonalds All-Americans Kaila Charles (nine points), Sarah Myers (five), Stephanie Jones (four), Jenna Staiti (four) and Blair Watson (two) all contributed in their first college road game. Charles had seven of Marylands first 11 points.MILESTONEBrionna Jones passed Belinda Pearman and moved into 25th on the Terrapins all-time scoring list with 1,286 career points. Jones made 7 of 9 shots, bringing her career field goal percentage up to 63.2 percent. The Big Ten record is 60.8 percent set by Purdues Camille Cooper from 1997-2001.UP NEXTMaryland continues its four-game road trip at the South Point Shootout in Las Vegas, playing its first ranked opponent, No. 18 Arizona State, on Friday, and Washington State on Saturday.

ANGLET, France -- For many people, vacation means lying poolside or beachside, reading and relaxing. Wholesale Jerseys 2018 . But for me, it meant biking through the French Pyrenees in a week-long race, taking in the famous climbs of the Tour de France with 400 others.It was agonizingly difficult, one steep, grueling mountain road after another. But it was also wonderful.The event was part of the Haute Route series, billed as the highest, toughest and most prestigious amateur cycling events in the world. The events take place annually in the French Pyrenees, French Alps and Italian Dolomites. A U.S. event is planned for the Rocky Mountains in June 2017.Haute Route events attract cycling-crazy folks from around the world of all ages and abilities. At the sharp end of the stick are aspiring or retired professionals, in the middle are fit cycling enthusiasts like me and at the bottom are people who signed up on a whim and may be regretting it. Some brave souls do all three European events, back to back, the so-called triple crown.My August trip to southwestern France was a 50th birthday present from my wife. I met up for the race with a friend, Paul ODonnell, also turning 50. Both of us race bikes regularly in the New York area and are, for our ages, very fit. This was to be a stiff test of our abilities: 500 miles (800 kilometers) with 65,000-plus feet (20,000-plus meters) of climbing. Each day wed burn 4,000 to 5,000 calories.The event began in Anglet in rainy weather. Then we hit the first major uphill of the day, the Col dAhusquy, a steep 8-mile (13-kilometer) ascent. Id never been on a climb this long and difficult before and found myself breathless and exhausted halfway up, wondering what Id gotten myself into.A quick pause and it was down the other side toward the days second and final climb, the Pierre St. Martin, a 10-mile (16-kilometer) climb through heavy fog, with visibility dropping to about 20 meters (65 feet), a blessing because you couldnt see the long series of switchbacks coming. It was quiet for long stretches but for the whirring of bikes and the riders breathing, with cowbells softly tinkling in the distance. A car or motorcycle engine would come and go and then you could focus on your own engine again -- heart, lungs, legs.Day two saw four climbs, all hard and long, with the Col DAubisque the killer, on and on (and then on some more) for 10 miles (17 kilometers). Exhausted, rationing water, stuffing down energy gels, controlling the breathing, I tried to focus. Sweat dripped into my eyes, stinging me onto another pedal stroke, and then another.Some might call it suffering, but for me it was cleansing, liberating, nothing but effort and the road ahead. The mind? Circling the wheel, wondering what was to come. And then I passed a one-legged, one-handed man on his bike, also making his way up. Hes Christian Haettich, a regular, who lost his leg and hand in a traffic accident as an adolescent and yet hes chugging away on some of the toughest climbs in Europe.At the top, the landscape was astonishing, massive mountains upholstered in green grass and trees like giant sleeping ogres. The Pyrenees, where Iberia smashes slowly into France.Dropping down like a marble, through tunnels bored through the rock, we descended into the valley. Cows lay nonchalantly by the roadside, big metal bells around their necks, a few pigs too and some sheep, guarded by large mountain dogs. We were warned not to approach the sheep lest the dogs mistake us for wolves and attack, as had apparently happened in previous years.And then to the base of the days final climb, the Col de Spandelles, just 6 miles (10 kilometers) long but with steeply graded ramps. Small groups of curious bystanders would form by the road, some clapping, some cheering us on.We went through the legendary Tourmalet climb, scene of epic battles in Tour de France races. Drink, drink, sweat, sweat and drink some more. More switchbacks, focus, OK, half a mile (1 kilometer) to go, pushing a bit harder and onwards, up and then down through majestic scenery, but always keeping an eye on the clock. Each day had a time cut off and if you didnt make it, youd be eliminated from the timed event and escorted to the broom wagon for a ride to the finish. The next day you could continue at your own pace, no longer timed.The final day was a mere 105 miles (169 kilometers), just one major climb and then mostly downhill through rolling farmland into Toulouse. And then it was over. We got our participant medals, then celebrated with pizza, soft drinks and later in Toulouse, a beer or two.Reflecting on the week, each day had seemed as punishing as the next, my whole body a slippery sinew of muscle turning and turning. But Id gradually adjusted to the effort, the fitness kicking in. What seemed like misery in the moment felt like triumph looking back. But would I trade a beach vacation for a week of pushing uphill again?Absolutely.---If You Go...HAUTE ROUTE: . Event organizers can handle hotels, meals and other logistics for participants.

McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. . Schenn scored the game-winning goal and added two assists to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Tuesday. SAINT PAUL, Minn. -- When their team scores a goal at home, Calgary Flames fans are used to fire shooting from strategic points in their buildings ceiling, not from the home teams bench.Still, Flames first-year coach Glen Gulutzan is finding himself on an increasingly hot seat with less than 20 percent of the seasons games played as Calgary sinks further and further back in the Western Conference standings.The Flames come to Minnesota on Tuesday having lost four in a row, and owning a 5-10-1 mark, which is second-worst in the league (ahead of only the Arizona Coyotes).All of that recent losing had Gulutzan juggling his lines on Monday at practice before the team boarded a Minnesota-bound plane, looking for a new spark.When you lose four in a row, youve got to make some changes, Gulutzan said, without revealing the exact combinations the Wild will be expected to counter on Tuesday, although it looks as if Alex Chiasson will move to the second line and be replaced by Troy Brouwer, who will play with regular top-liners Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan. Any guy weve got here weve got a chance of putting in, so well see how the lineup transpires.The Flames have scored just four goals during the four-game skid, and speculation is growing in Calgary that an early-season coaching change may be needed. However, Gulutzan, who coached the Dallas Stars for two seasons and is in his second head-coaching gig in the NHL, is less concerned about offense and focusing more on his teams inabiliity to consistently stifle the opponents offense. Leicester City Wes Morgan Jersey. Everybodys talking about the points, but the reality is weve given up 60-some goals, 50-some goals, Gulutzan said. If you go back a year from now, one of the reasons we didnt have success is we gave up 260-some goals. The top teams in the league dont do that.After a brief power outage in early November, the Wild (8-5-1) are back to looking like one of the top teams in the league, coming home after two weeks away and having just collected four of a possible six points on a three-game eastern road trip. And the health news is even better in Minnesota, after star left winger Zach Parise skated in practice on Monday and may return to the lineup after a two-week absence caused by a lower-body injury.Its good. It beats skating on your own, Parise said Monday after practice. Its one of those things I needed to get the progress and get back to feeling good again. It was good to be practicing with the team.Parise said he felt fine and would make his case to coach Bruce Boudreau about a return to the ice against the Flames on Tuesday, hoping to join Charlie Coyle and Eric Staal on the teams top line.It is the start of a whirlwind stretch in which Minnesota will play seven games in 12 days -- five of them at home.The Wild defense is on a roll, having allowed just nine goals in the past eight games. Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shippingcheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '

Thats been showing in these races, Ledecky said.

She won four golds and a bronze four years ago at the London Games.I think I do my best when Im given a big challenge, and tonight Im really going to have a big challenge ahead of me, she said. My warmups have been feeling really great. I think Im trying a little bit too hard and thinking a little bit too much. Its just about trusting myself and just letting it happen.After creating a splash in London, Franklin attended college for two years before turning pro. She has talked about the challenges of balancing sponsor demands, photo shoots, appearances and travel with training in her home state of Colorado.Its a different kind of pressure, for sure, she said.Defending Olympic champion Allison Schmitt qualified as fourth fastest for the 200 free semis in 1:57.77.In the 200 individual medley, Maya DiRado advanced to the semifinals with the fastest time of 2:11.66.

HOUSTON -- Playing with a seven-man rotation, Arizona coach Sean Miller admitted his team wore down late against Texas A&M. wholesale nfl jerseys .The Wildcats had just enough left to fight off the Aggies on Saturday.Dusan Ristic tied a season-high with 18 points as No. 19 Arizona had to hold off a furious rally by Texas A&M for its fourth straight victory, 67-63.We have seven scholarship players, and we hit around that 10-minute, 8-minute mark and guys start missing shots and defense is not that easy as it once was, Miller said. That is why depth is so critical. . When they sensed we were running out of gas, they put it into overdrive.Ristic scored 14 of Arizonas first 24 points and finished 8 of 12 from the field for the Wildcats (10-2), who shot 40 percent from the field, including 48 percent in the first half.Lauri Markkanen added 17 points and seven rebounds, and Kobi Simmons chipped in 14 points for the Wildcats.We were fortunate to hold on, but I also think we deserved to win, Miller said.Tyler Davis had 23 points and 10 rebounds, Robert Williams added 15 points and Admon Gilder had 13 points for the Aggies, who shot 45 percent from the field, including 53 percent in the second half.Texas A&M (7-3) had its three-game winning streak snapped.The Aggies mounted a rally over the final 5 minutes, using an 18-0 run to close within 65-63 with 22 seconds left on a 3-pointer by DJ Hogg.It demonstrates that we have the ability if we show effort on both ends of the court to win games against really good teams, Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy said. Arizona was better than us for the majority of the game.But Rawle Alkins hit two free throws with 15 seconds left to put the Wildcats up by four.After the first one, I felt comfortable, Alkins said. Coach trusted me and Lauri to make the play happen.Tonny Trocha-Morelos missed a 3-pointer, and Davis missed the ensuing putback, allowing Simmons to grab the rebound and dribble out the clock.Arizona ended the first half with a 9-0 run led by Alkins five points to take a 41-28 lead and carried that momentum into the second half, pushing the lead to as many as 22 points with a 17-8 spurt over the first 10 minutes of the second half.Texas A&M didnt hit a field goal over the last 5:17 of the first half and shot 3 of 10 with eight turnovers to start the second half.For a large portion of the game, that was our best effort because we were playing against a really good team as well, Miller said.BIG PICTUREArizona: The Wildcats have continued to play well since losing to No. 8 Gonzaga on Dec. 3. Arizona defended well, forcing 14 turnovers and converting them into 18 points. The Wildcats were aggressive and attacked the paint, scoring 32 points.Texas A&M: The Aggies are still looking for a marquee win after falling to 0-3 against the Pac-12 this season. The Aggies allowed Arizonas post players to control down low until the final 10 minutes and couldnt take advantage of 15 offensive rebounds, scoring 13 second-chance points.POLL IMPLICATIONSArizona: The Wildcats could move up a couple spots after their fourth straight win.Texas A&M: The Aggies, who were receiving votes to start the season, will likely remain without votes.JACKSON-CARTWRIGHT UPDATEArizona junior guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright, who missed his fifth straight game Saturday with a high ankle sprain, is closer to returning, Miller said.We are anxious to get him back, Miller said. He is moving in the direction of coming back.
