ESPN rounds up all the reaction from up and down the Interlagos paddock following the 2016 Brazilian Grand Prix. Nike Air Max Myydään .MercedesLewis Hamilton (1st):?Ive just won my first Brazilian Grand Prix! I remember watching Ayrton win back in 1991 and thinking one day, thats what I want to do. I shared his emotion that day and now I can finally understand how he felt. Its the 44th Grand Prix here as well, so its a really special one for me. To win on Sennas turn in front of that crowd... its a moment Ill never forget and I genuinely cant believe its finally come. Its crazy -- all these years its been so hard to win this race and then today was one of the easiest wins Ive had. Of course, in those conditions I could easily have made a mistake at any point.But I was generally very relaxed out there today and felt completely in control. I love driving in the rain. It must come from years of racing around the UK as a kid! Its all in the mind -- keeping your cool, not making mistakes, having great reactions and knowing where to put the car. It was one of those races where I was able to focus purely on driving. That one set of tyres just kept going and going, I didnt have any problems at all and the car was really fantastic. Id like to say a big thank you to everyone back at both factories who have worked so hard to give us such an incredible car. This result is all down to them.Every week were making another piece of history and weve out-and-out proven that were the best team by far, in every area. Our hospitality is the best, our food is the best, our guys in the garage are the best, the guys back in the factory are the best, our cars are the best... its so rare to see every area so spot on and Im proud to be a part of that. Im glad that its come down to the last race. All I can do is focus on being as strong as I have been in these past few races. If I can do that, Ill know in my heart what Ive achieved this year.Nico Rosberg (2nd):?The conditions were really tricky out there today. Up the hill there was heavy aquaplaning and a lot of drivers went off the track. I had a bit of a moment when I spun at one point but luckily this wasnt at high speed, so I was able to catch the car again. Lewis did a better job today and deserved the win, so I must be happy with P2. Max also did a good job. We knew that the Red Bull would be very strong in the wet but he drive a great race. Thank you very much to my team for choosing the right strategy and letting me stay out on the full wet tyres. Now I look forward to Abu Dhabi, where I have good memories from last year. I will be going all out for the win there.Toto Wolff, Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport:?To come away with such a result in a race like that is really quite something. You simply cant expect a 1-2 in such conditions. Its a rare achievement and the whole team is to be congratulated for that. Im very happy with the result. When you consider the circumstances, its maybe the best result of the season. It was a faultless drive from Lewis, with easily the best pace of the field, while Nico showed his strength to stand firm in P2. A word for Max too, who was very impressive today. It was the Verstappen show out there -- really unbelievable driving and great entertainment.Also, for Charlie and the Stewards. Its very difficult in these conditions and, overall, they probably made the right calls. I probably wouldnt have stopped the race the last time around because the conditions hadnt changed. But if you have to sit up there, put your neck on the line and take responsibility for the drivers safety, you might see it from a different perspective. Now, we have a showdown in Abu Dhabi -- just as Bernie would have ordered it. Our job is simple -- give both drivers the cars they need to fight to the flag on track.Paddy Lowe, Executive Director (Technical): Absolutely mind-blowing. To get a 1-2 from a day like that is really incredible. Most of the credit for that must go to the drivers, who kept their heads in very difficult conditions. It was great to see such a thrilling race in the end too for the crowd at this iconic circuit. Such difficult weather makes it tough to run a safe race and their dedication must be applauded. In the end we had a lot of exciting racing, so Im happy for them. From a technical point of view, to us it was clearly a full wet race all afternoon.Twice, others gambled on the intermediate tyre -- but we resisted that temptation as the data simply didnt support it and neither did the drivers. On both the initial start and the two re-starts, that proved to be absolutely the right call. Credit to the team and the drivers for making those choices, which won the race for us today. Congratulations to Lewis on becoming the second most winning driver in Formula One history. We now take the Championship finale to the final race in Abu Dhabi, which is a perfect outcome for the sport.FerrariSebastian Vettel (5th):?Obviously, today it was not ideal: in the first part of the race I span, I had some aquaplaning but I wasnt the only one. I think it was a good recovering in the end, it was difficult to come back, and I struggled to get past Sainz: I dont know why it took me a lot of laps before I really started to feel well in the car, and then it was too late. About the duel with Verstappen, I think I was racing side by side to him and he saw me. I still had a little bit of my nose ahead, he was much faster so it was about making the corner and he got past. Not a difficult passing manoeuver, but I dont think it was fully correct. But I wouldnt complain about anything today: I think I was not the only one who got caught out by the aquaplaning, but luckily I didnt crash.Kimi Raikkonen (DNF):?The conditions today were not the easiest ones: it was very tricky, and when you do many laps behind the Safety Car it gets even more difficult. It was not raining heavily, but there was a lot of standing water. The biggest problem was the aquaplaning and I got it in a place where I was not expecting it: I spun off on the straight! I almost got the car back, but then I went off in a pretty bad place. The Wet tires are very vulnerable, easy to aquaplaning. It obviously depends on the circuit and on many other things, but comparing to some years ago, those tires could handle this kind of water with no issues of aquaplaning.Maurizio Arrivabene, Team Principal: Maybe we could have achieved more, both yesterday and today, but no room for complaining now. Kimis accident was a shame, while Seb had a great comeback after spinning off track. Now lets focus onto Abu Dhabi: its the last race of the season but, as we always say, were not giving up till the end.WilliamsValtteri Bottas (11th):?It was a very difficult day in very difficult conditions. We managed to keep the car in one piece but it wasnt easy. We had quite a lot of potential with the strategy, but in the end the intermediate tyres starting working a bit too late for us. Its a shame that Force India got a lot more points than us, so its going to be tricky in Abu Dhabi. We were just really unlucky today with the timing of our strategy. Its been amazing to see the support here for Felipe and Im sure he really appreciated it. Well enjoy Abu Dhabi.Felipe Massa (DNF):?Its impossible to explain my feelings from today, for everything that has happened. So much love. We couldnt finish the race. I wanted to finish in the right way, with the flag on the top. Unfortunately, I couldnt, but I think God knows what to do. I was just walking, in front of my people, with this amazing reaction. Not just from the fans but from all the people in Formula One coming out to clap their hands for me. Its impossible to explain these emotions. I never expected this in my life, I dont think I deserved as much as this. The minimum I can say is thank you very much to everyone, all the people Ive worked with, all of the fans. I will never forget this day.Rob Smedley, Head of Performance Engineering:?We knew we needed to do something different to get in the points. We hoped the rain would ease off enough to cause the extreme wet tyre to wear, so that our early decision to switch to the intermediates would give us the advantage. Unfortunately, with all the safety cars and red flag periods, it allowed everyone to keep changing their wet tyres for fresh ones, so we never saw the benefit. We did our best in difficult conditions but the safety cars and stoppages didnt help us.It was a shame that Felipe had to end his race the way he did, as it would have been great for him to get a good result. You could see that he was absolutely filled with emotion, as he has been all weekend, and this final home race for him, in front of his fans and surrounded by friends and family must be something very special for him. Its been an emotional rollercoaster. Credit must also go to Max Verstappen, who was in a class of his own today and was incredible to watch. He may have even won the race had it gone on a few laps longer. Thank you as well to all the fans who stayed to watch despite all the delays.Red BullMax Verstappen (3rd):?I think the word for today is Exciting. I overtook Nico around the outside of turn 3 which was really fun to do, I just seemed to find a bit more grip out there. I then started chasing Lewis which resulted in me having a massive moment in the final sector, I was really lucky to keep it out of the guard rail. After that scare my pace was still good and I held onto P2. The rears then started to lose grip and I was told Daniel had pitted for Intermediates and was going fast so I followed that plan. For a lap or so it was really good but then more rain came which resulted in no grip in the last sector.There was no way we could carry on so had to pit again for wets. From there on the race was really good fun, plenty of overtakes around the outside because if you stay behind them theres too much spray, I had to find another line. I just kept my head down and managed to get past quite a few cars in the remaining laps. I could hear the crowd going crazy when my engineer was on the radio, so Im very thankful for the Brazilian fans for getting behind me. At the end when I crossed the line it felt like a victory, it was almost as beautiful as my race in Barcelona.Daniel Ricciardo (8th):?It was a frustrating race, we never really felt like we got lucky with the strategy; every time we made a change with the tyres there was a safety car or a red flag. We lost positions and obviously we could not predict what was going to happen and we felt a little bit on the back foot. But the real difficulty today was my visibility, which was a struggle as my visor kept fogging up. I kept opening my visor and trying to wipe it but its never happened before, and it held me back.Its a shame as the car was a lot better than eighth, when we had a clear track our speed was good. It was tricky out there, for example with Kimi, I didnt see him crash in front of me. It wasnt until I got back to the pits and saw a replay I knew hed crashed. From that point of view they obviously make some good calls with red flags. Im glad we got to race and glad we could finish it, and that despite some crashes everyone was safe. The fans put up with a long afternoon so thanks to them for staying with it.Christian Horner, Team Principal:?An extraordinary motor racing day in testing conditions for the drivers and of course the officials. Having got ourselves into a good position at the start of the race, at the restart Max made an unbelievable pass on Rosberg round the outside of turn 3 which set up his afternoon of audacious driving and passing moves. It was a race that continuously teetered on the Intermediate being the better tyre and after the delay due to the conditions it did look like the better tyre. When Daniel fitted the tyre he started setting purple sectors and we therefore took the gamble to put Max on to the Inter.The rain then marginally increased and we had to make a difficult decision to pit both of our cars, dropping them down the order but giving them fresh extreme tyres. Thereafter, the last 15 laps were something special to witness as Max made his way back through the field to achieve a quite remarkable podium. With Daniel finishing in eighth place that secures our second place in the Constructors Championship which is a quite a feat. Wed like to dedicate this race to the memory of a very valued member of our team, Mark Simpson, who we unfortunately lost after a difficult illness earlier in the week. Simo as he was known to us, was an important part of our team and Im sure he would have enjoyed what we saw from Red Bull Racing today.Force IndiaSergio Perez (4th):?What a fun but tense race today! Its a shame to lose a podium place in the last two laps, but Max [Verstappen] just had a different pace: he was the fastest on track and there was nothing I could do to keep him behind. Even though I am a bit disappointed, we can still celebrate a great race and an incredible result, especially considering the conditions we had out there today. Just getting to the finish line on a day like this feels like a victory, and to bring home fourth is a very important result. It was so easy to make mistakes; you risked aquaplaning at any moment -- every time I crossed the finish line I had a breath of relief. Its a big result, not only for me, but also for the team as it brings us important points for the battle for fourth place. A lot can still happen in Abu Dhabi, but we can be happy about this result.Nico Hulkenberg (7th):?That was an intense race and I dont know whether to laugh or cry because I think a possible podium slipped away today. I had great confidence in the car, felt comfortable and I had the pace to push and overtake. There were some scary moments in the race, especially when Kimi crashed in front of me. Some of his debris hit my car and caused a lot of damage. At least I survived that, but then I picked up a puncture from the debris, which was so frustrating because it dropped me down to the back of the field. Without the puncture, who knows where I might have finished? Im happy and proud of myself and the team. We did a great job, but we were just missing a bit of luck.Robert Fernley, Deputy Team Principal:?What an exciting race! To come away with 18 points from such a challenging race is a fantastic reward for an excellent job by the entire team. Both drivers didnt put a wheel wrong and the decisions from the pit wall were spot on. Sergio came within a whisker of another podium and thoroughly deserved fourth place. For Nico to recover from the puncture to finish seventh showed his class once again and made us all wonder what might have been because he was running in fourth when the puncture struck. With such difficult track conditions, just getting both cars to the finish is a victory and to have both in the points takes us a good step closer to achieving fourth place in the constructors championship.RenaultKevin Magnussen (14th):?The conditions today were definitely testing, especially turn 12 which isnt actually a corner in the dry but became a real corner in the wet ! There was clear aquaplaning there, and even if there hadnt been, it was still on the limit. I do wish we could have driven more today though. Of course you should have red flags to clear a crash and safety should always be the priority, but after that, I feel we were too careful with driving in the wet. At the end of the day, its up to us drivers to slow down enough to get around it. We just need to drive to the conditions and not go over the limit, which is exactly what we do in the dry.Jolyon Palmer (DNF):?The conditions this afternoon were very difficult and unfortunately we had to retire following contact with Kvyat. I had some more grip at that point on full wet tyres and I was faster than cars in front on intermediates. I wanted to make up some places. In the end the visibility was so bad that I couldnt even see past my steering wheel. I didnt see where the corner went, I knew that there was the pitwall and pitlane somewhere ; I just couldnt see anything.Kvyat in front of me was slower and I hit him. Around the lap, the visibility wasnt too bad and there were some places where you aquaplaned but coming up the hill you had no traction and couldnt see if you were behind anyone else. You had to guess where you were going, there was water on track and rivers of water running across. It was really tricky.Fred Vasseur, Team Principal:?It was a tough afternoon for the team and a tricky race in wet weather conditions for everyone. The biggest issue we encountered was the performance of our car with the full wet tyres. We werent able to perform over long stints with these sets of tyres and had to switch to intermediate tyres whenever it was possible but in the end it wasnt enough for us to get into the points with Kevin. Unfortunately Jolyon sustained front suspension damage when he hit Kvyat and we had to retire him. We are now looking forward to the ultimate race of the season in Abu Dhabi where I hope we can have a race in better conditions.Toro RossoCarlos Sainz (6th):?Well, the rain dance definitely worked and what a race that was! Im super happy! To finish P6 after qualifying P15 yesterday is just amazing. I thought it was too risky to put the intermediates on and I asked the team to leave me out on extremes, and it worked! Today was all about a good strategy with no pit-stops for me and a strong pace with no mistakes. To do it in these difficult conditions just makes it even better. It was so hard to drive out there today -- it was very, very difficult to keep the car on track at times! It was really tricky, especially in the aquaplaning areas like Turns 13 and 14. Particularly during the Safety Car restarts, when you are racing at 300kph and you cant see absolutely anything, its risky!Having said that, I really enjoyed it today, I love the rain -- Ive always been strong in the wet, since Im a kid in go-karting and today was no exception. We can also be very proud as a team, as we were matching the pace of the top runners in the wet, which means that our car is actually a very good one and that weve done an excellent job all weekend -- Id like to congratulate everyone for this! To bring back home another 8 points when we were not expecting many more is great news, Im over the moon -- I have to say that this second half of the season is full of surprises for us and I definitely welcome them!Daniil Kvyat (13th):?What a crazy race. My start was good and we switched to intermediate tyres at the right time, but then I suffered a puncture under the Safety Car, so I was last after I pitted, unfortunately. I didnt give up and I was starting to come back up the grid, but at that point the car was very damaged... The reason for this is that during one of the restarts, Palmer crashed into me and, even though we stayed out because of the tricky conditions, the car was very difficult to drive. Its a pity, because up until today I was satisfied with how my weekend was going and I was hoping for more.Franz Tost, Team Principal:?Taking into consideration our pace from yesterdays qualifying session, I must say that we were very lucky and the rain really helped us today. Carlos drove a good race -- to finish P6 and take home 8 points here in Sao Paulo is a great result! Daniil on the other hand was involved in an incident with Palmer, where he destroyed the front part of his diffuser. This had a big impact aerodynamically -- he lost more than 20 points of downforce to be precise -- and therefore he couldnt do more. The team did a good job throughout the whole weekend and this will certainly give us a boost to face the last round of this Championship in Abu Dhabi.SauberFelipe Nasr (9th):?I have no words to say how happy I am at the moment. When I saw the weather forecast for today, I knew it could be an opportunity. The opportunity came, and I was ready to go for it. We did an exceptional job today. The team was great informing me about the track conditions, while I was giving them my feedback. It was a tricky race, as the track conditions were very difficult at some points. In the end it was just an incredible feeling when I saw the fans in the grandstands cheering for me after the chequered flag. There is no better feeling than scoring these two important points on home soil. I could not have hoped for a better Sunday back home in Brazil.Marcus Ericsson (DNF):?It was a very disappointing end to this wet race for me. The conditions on track were very difficult. I lost the car going up the hill on the way to the start-finish-line, because of standing water on the track -- at the end I was just a passenger. I am very disappointed. However, Felipe did a great job today scoring two very important points for us. This is great for everyone in the team. I will fight back at the final race of the season at the Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi.Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal:?First of all, I want to thank the whole team at the track, as well as at the headquarters in Hinwil. Despite the difficult circumstances, the team has always worked very hard and believed in its skills with a strong belief -- therefore, these points are well deserved. We knew that it would have been possible to score points in wet conditions, even from the back of the field -- Felipe made it possible with an exceptional performance here in Interlagos. Ninth position at his home race in front of his fans gives everyone in the team a lot of joy. Marcus was unlucky in these difficult track conditions and retired. Now we will focus on the season finale in Abu Dhabi, where we will again fight for tenth position in the constructors championship.McLarenFernando Alonso (10th):?I think we were aiming for something better today. I started 10th and finished 10th, and there were some retirements in front of me, so we definitely didnt take some of the opportunities that presented themselves out there. The conditions were extremely difficult today. Sometimes it was just enough to keep the car on track. There was very poor visibility and the drainage on the circuit wasnt great -- I had some aquaplaning which made it hard to push the car and close the gap ahead. In the end, we scored one point. Hopefully, in Abu Dhabi we can finish the season on a high.Jenson Button (16th):?After todays race, we need to go back to the factory and work out what it is thats wrong with the car. During Friday practice, it was working really well; I was comfortable with the car and in the high-speed corners we had a strong rear-end. Yesterday, it wasnt working, and today it was further exaggerated by the conditions. In terms of the restarts, those were very difficult conditions in which to judge whats right and whats wrong, but nobody was injured -- and thats the most important thing. Finishing last is unusual for me in conditions like these -- so theres definitely something wrong. I dont think Ive forgotten how to drive in the wet...Eric Boullier, McLaren-Honda Racing Director:?For McLaren-Honda, this was largely a race to forget. For Formula 1 as a sport, its a race from which we can learn in order to improve the show for future wet-weather races. Unfortunately for us, neither driver was truly able to seize the moment -- Fernando drove bravely to run inside the top 10 for much of the race, then a lap-56 spin at Turn 13 dropped him to the back of the field. His comeback drive to 10th -- passing seven cars in 15 laps -- was brilliant, and displayed all his speed, bravery and commitment. Jenson was unable to rid himself of the handling imbalancehe encountered yesterday, and struggled to find any rear grip in the tricky conditions. We will go away and examine what went wrong for him.Yusuke Hasegawa, Honda R&D Co Ltd Head of F1 Project & Executive Chief Engineer:?The rain that continued to fall throughout the day forced the Brazilian GP to be the toughest survival race of the year so far. Fernando unfortunately spun after the restart of the last safety car period, and dropped to nearly the back of the grid, but after a stunning charge, finished 10th to claim the final championship point of the race. As with yesterday, Jenson continued to struggle with the balance of his car, and with the poor track conditions, could not improve on this during his race. Putting the results aside, I am in awe of the courage and the driving techniques of all the drivers on the grid today. It was a nail-biting race.Manor?Esteban Ocon (12th): Im really disappointed and sad for all of us. It was such a difficult race and though I have my own feelings on whether the race should have continued, that doesnt matter. If the track is declared fit to race on, we have to race and do the best job we can. There were some pretty scary moments out there; I was so lucky to react so quickly to the Kimi incident.Well obviously I was pushing as hard as I could -- throughout the whole race in fact. In the third race stint -- after the second red flag -- it was clear I just had to push to catch Felipe because the chances of him coming back down the order to a position of safety were diminishing. The race was going his way, not ours. I did what I could but the cars behind me were closing and in the end they just had the pace to get by. There are so many reasons to feel disappointed today that I cant just single that one out, but, yes, my first F1 point would have been nice.Pascal Wehrlein (15th):?Conditions were terrible -- all the way through the race. Even when the rain subsided, the track was holding so much water. It was such a gamble for anyone making the switch from the Extreme Wet tyres to the Inters. The conditions were close at times, but not close enough. I was aquaplaning still and then the risk was that we could be brave, yes, but if we end up in the wall, weve gained nothing.Plus, the visibility was quite bad. It was a very nerve-wracking race with conditions Im not keen to experience again anytime soon. Well, its happened, but we have to keep working hard and pushing. Today showed that anything can still happen, although Im not expecting any rain in Abu Dhabi. Racing can be unpredictable, so well keep fighting.Dave Ryan, Racing Director:?We were pretty apprehensive in Austin and Mexico, with Sauber hovering on the cusp of a point in both races, but we knew coming into this race that Interlagos carried a much greater risk. With conditions like weve seen today, it was always going to come down to luck. At one point things had fallen in our favour and we were looking at our first double points finish. Nasr was still ahead on track but we could have achieved more points if things had continued like that.But the race was evolving with every lap, every safety car and both red flags and in the end, things went Saubers way, not ours. Esteban put up a great fight to try to pull things back and actually both of our drivers did an incredible job in conditions that really tested even seasoned world champions. Were down, but not defeated. The whole team is disappointed to say the least, but there is one race remaining and we have to keep pushing all the way to the chequered flag in Abu Dhabi.HaasEsteban Gutierrez (DNF):?It was a fun race -- pretty boring at the beginning, but got much better when we started to race on full wets. The conditions were very tricky on track with the wet and the intermediate tires, and it was all about keeping the car on track. We were picking up a good pace and I was making my way up the grid and saw an opportunity to score some points.Unfortunately, we started to have some electrical problems. I was having power issues on braking and in the corners. In the wet, thats the worst thing you can have. The team gave their best effort to fix it, but we had to retire the car. Now were looking ahead to the final race of the season. Its another opportunity. We have to stay optimistic and try to do the best with what we have and focus on that.Romain Grosjean (DNS):?Well, Im sorry for the fans, for all of Haas F1 Team. Weve gone from hero to zero in less than 24 hours. What can I say? I wasnt even flat out. I was barely faster than Gutiérrez, and then the car just spun. It was just bad luck. There was really no grip at that point. I picked up the wheelspin, spun and crashed. I feel so bad for the crew. It was a big impact, something like 30G. It happens fast in Formula One, but Im okay physically.Guenther Steiner, Team Principal:?It was a disastrous race for us, but not a disastrous weekend. Up to todays race, our weekend was a good one. But today Romain crashed out on the lap to the grid, so we lost one car even before the start. The conditions were tough out there and they played a role in his exit. Esteban had been driving a very good race, but then we had issues with electronics. At one point his MGU-K didnt work, and then he had to retire his car when his MGU-H didnt work anymore because of electronic problems. Were pretty happy to be getting out of here and moving on to the next one.PirelliPaul Hembery, Pirelli Motorsport Director:?We were treated to a fantastic spectacle in very tricky conditions, with some drivers using both the wet and intermediate tyres to pull off some great overtaking moves, with wheel to wheel racing. Most of all, were delighted that the fans finally got to see a full race distance, despite the delays. It was a complicated but long race that delivered some scintillating drives, for example from Max Verstappen and Felipe Nasr, in his home race, as well as Fernando Alonso who fought back in the closing stages -- all showing that great driving is possible even in these extreme conditions. Nike Air Max Halvalla .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. Halvalla Nike Air Max . Its 1987 and a Brazilian playmaker, known as Mirandinha, is being paraded around St James Park to the passionate Newcastle fans. http://www.suomiairmax.com/ . Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night. Edinburgh bounced back from last weeks disappointing defeat to Zebre with a 28-17 Guinness PRO12 victory over Ulster at BT Murrayfield.The hosts were evidently desperate to atone for the previous weeks shock defeat and by half-time had established a 21-3 advantage through tries from Villiame Mata and Damien Hoyland, a conversion from Jason Tovey and a penalties from Blair Kinghorn and Duncan Weir (2).Magnus Bradbury then crossed after the interval with Tovey adding a second conversion. Ruan Pienaar kicked a first-half penalty for Ulster before converting second-half tries from Aaron Cairns and Jacob Stockdale and adding a penalty.With two minutes on the clock, Tovey almost sidestepped his way through the Ulster defence and when he was thwarted, Sean Kennedy fed the ball back to Mata, who crashed through two tackles to touch down and Tovey converted.The hosts continued to dominate and claimed a second try of the evening after nine minutes. Mata was again involved and when he was foiled, Kinghorn was hauled down just short but Hoyland was alert to the opportunity and picked up to plunge over.Tovey failed with the conversion attempt, but the momentum remained with Edinburgh and Kinghorn added three more points with a sweetly struck long-range penalty in the 16th minute.Ulster had been infrequent visitors to the home half but with 24 minutes played they earned a penalty 30 metres out and Pienaar was on target to get them on the board.Weir, who had just come on as a temporary replacement for Tovey, responded almost immediately, rifling a penalty between the sticks from close range.?The replacements next involvement was to have a kick ccharged down. Nike Air Max Osta. But fortunately Kinghorn raced back to avert the danger as the ball ricocheted over the Edinburgh line.Weir shrugged off that error to make another positive contribution when he added three more points to complete the first-half scoring.Ulster made a lively start to the second period but handling errors and one bone-juddering tackle by Kinghorn prevented the visitors from capitalising on their spell in charge.And the home side capitalised on that failure seven minutes into the half when Cornell Du Preez broke from a scrum inside the Edinburgh half and fed Kennedy.He in turn released Mike Allen whose pass set Bradbury free for an impressive try which Tovey converted. Ulster responded with a powerful surge from Tommy Bowe who was held up over the line by Du Preez.The visitors thought they had clawed back five points when Charles Piatau raced onto a clever chip by Pienaar. However, to the displeasure of the Irish contingent in the 5,336 crowd, the referee ruled that he had not controlled the ball as he touched down.Edinburgh defended well for the next 10 minutes but their luck eventually ran out when Paul Marshall chipped ahead and Cairns out-muscled Tovey to pluck the ball out of the air and touch down. Pienaars conversion cut the deficit to 18 points.?The Irishmen gave themselves a glimmer of hope -- at least of a four-try bonus if not a win -- with eight minutes to play when Stockdale raced onto a flip pass from Rob Herring and darted in for a try which Pienaar again converted.

He may not have agreed to it, but Gold Coast coach Rodney Eade claims he isnt upset at Jaeger OMearas decision to request a trade to AFL rivals Hawthorn. Cheap Jordan 2 Wholesale .OMeara has missed the past two seasons with knee problems since succumbing to a patella tendon injury in April 2015.As a result such, OMeara hasnt played in an Eade-coached Gold Coast team.Asked if he was gutted by OMearas trade request, Eade told SEN radio: No, I wasnt because I havent coached him.He hasnt played a game.Eade has backed the Suns to rebound from OMearas looming exit despite comparing the young midfielders departure to Patrick Dangerfield leaving Adelaide and Hawthorn losing Leigh Matthews.But Eade revealed he told OMeara he didnt agree with the move when the gun midfielder made his decision.He phoned me about it so I thought that was nice of him, very professional of him (but) I didnt agree with his decision, Eade said.I spoke to him about that but there is no sense being angry about it - it is just the way footy is.We are going to see more of it in this day and age of footy.Eade was adamant the Gold Coast would recover from OMearas departure.Adelaide lost Dangerfield and were a good chance to be top four this year - teams move on, Eade said.Leigh Matthews, one of the greatest players of all time, left Hawthorn and next year we won a premiership (in 1986).Every club is greater than the individual - teams move on and they survive.Eade said the Suns were still trying to find the best deal with the Hawks for OMeara.We will wait for Hawthorn to come back to us, Eade said.But having said that we would want to be reasonably compensated.If we can come out in front in the deal then thats fine, you move on.Nothing has eventuated at this stage. It is still a bit of shadow boxing.Fellow Suns midfielder Dion Prestia has requested a trade to Richmond.The Gold Coast have the means to fill spots left by OMeara and Prestia in this years draft, in which they have plenty of picks including five of the top 25. Cheap Air Jordan 2 .

Its sharpness matched my mind. This was no night to go to sleep. Cheap Basketball Jerseys .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. http://www.cheapnbajerseysfromchina.com/. -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. Kent 379 and 238 for 3 ( Latham 74, Northeast 70*, Denly 64) drew with Derbyshire 574 for 9 dec (Madsen 163, Thakor 123, Hughes 83, Rutherford 65) Scorecard A lifeless pitch and two injury-hit bowling attacks provided all the ingredients for a high-scoring draw in Canterbury where promotion-chasing Kent drew with a Derbyshire side still fighting to open their win account in the Specsavers County Championship second tier.Derbyshire banked 12 points for the draw, while Kent claimed 10 to move above Essex to the top of the Division 2 table ahead of their four-day trip to Chelmsford starting on Sunday.Kent skipper Sam Northeast hit 191 and an unbeaten 76 on a surface he believed was too placid for four-day cricket.Yes weve gone top of Division 2 but who knows if this was a good draw or not, he said. Im a little bit disappointed if Im honest. I felt we should have posted a bigger score to help set the game up, but it was a tough pitch to bowl on and Im hoping that for our remaining games here well produced a surface with a little bit more pace and carry in it.After Derbyshires mammoth first innings total of 574 for nine declared had helped the visitors to secure a 195-run first innings lead, Kent set out their stall to bat out the final three-and-a-half sessions of the match for their sixth draw of the summer.That they readily achieved the stalemate was mainly due to dogged half-centuries from Tom Latham and Joe Denly and sprightlier 47-ball 50 by Northeast, yet it was tame fare for the handful of purists who remained in the drizzle to witness the umpires inspection and abandonment at 4pm.By then Kent had wiped out the Derbyshire lead and, at 238 for three, had edged 74 ahead on a day when Derbyshire had hoped to dismiss Kent cheaply in order to secure their first four-day win in 2016.They were hampered greatly by the loss of rookie pace bowler Will Davis through injury. The 21-year-old pulled up with a sidestrain after trying to stop the ball in his follow through and was unable to bowl throughout Kents second innings. He could be sidelined for several weeks.John Sadler, Derbyshires coach, said: Will was our most threatening bowler on day one, having also bowled magnificently last week against Worcestershire. For such a young lad who has not played that much cricket hes a really exciting prospect, so hes one we really have to look after.Hes being assessed by the physio right now, but the early signs are that hes going to have a spell offf, thats a real shame for him. Wholesale NBA Jerseys. But hes young and his body isnt perhaps totally ready for fast bowling yet. Its a shame, but we think very highly of him and hope to welcome him back soon.Sadler also paid tribute to Wayne Madsen, who scored his 22nd century for Derbyshire during the four-day draw. Wayne is a magnificent player in all formats and Im wondering what else he has to do to prove hes good enough to get noticed by England and talked about in terms of international cricket, said Sadler.You could plonk him into the middle of a Test or an ODI anywhere in the world and he would succeed - hes that good a player in my opinion. Hes a great lad with a superb attitude and I look forward to him getting an opportunity to step up.Derbyshire began their task well enough when Ben Cotton removed Sean Dickson for 22, barely 20 minutes into the final day. Dickson received a belting leg-cutter that lifted and left him as he played in defence. The ball feathered the edge and flew to wicketkeeper Tom Poynton to make it 39 for one - it proved to be the only delivery of the day that misbehaved.Second-wicket partners Latham and Denly combined to add 103 either side of lunch with New Zealand Test opener Latham scoring a 115-ball 50 with five fours. It was his first half-century in all forms of cricket since early May.Three overs into the mid-session and with his score on 74, the Kiwi left-hander lapped leg-side against Wayne Madsen only to pick out Rob Hemmings, the 12th man substituting for Davis, who took a simple catch at square leg.Denly soldiered on to go past 50 for the third time this summer. His watchful half-century coming from 135 balls and with five boundaries, then Northeast pulled a Ben Slater full-toss for four to wipe out the deficit, one of six boundaries in his eye-catching knock.To their credit, Derbyshire tried eight bowlers and set some enterprising fields in a bid to force an error - including a short spell of Tony Palladino leg-theory bowled around the wicket to a 7/2 split field - but Kent were not to be tempted into an indiscretion.With drizzle in the air, Nick Broom enjoyed yorking Denly for 64 for his sixth first-class wicket to break a third-wicket stand worth 93, but rain soon forced the players in for an early tea. The rain and wind strengthened thereafter forcing the abandonment.

It may be the only way North Queensland can defend their NRL premiership but Johnathan Thurston believes a team can win this years competition from outside the top four. wholesale jerseys cheap authentic .The Cowboys (28pts) sit fifth, four points behind fourth-placed Canterbury (32) after a three-game losing run that has put their hopes of back-to-back titles in jeopardy.It means to reach the top four, North Queensland essentially need to win their final three regular season matches and hope the Bulldogs drop at least two of their games.No team has won the title from outside the top four since Canterbury in 1995.Despite being the stand-out performers all year Melbourne and Cronulla have both stumbled in recent weeks while third-placed Canberra are untested in finals.The Cowboys are in a slump while grand finalists Brisbane have slumped from first to sixth after a poor run of form.Its left the title race wide open and Thurston can see no reason why a team from outside the top four cant be lifting the Provan-Summons trophy on October 2.The Raiders had a good win, obviously the Titans had a good win as well, Thurston said.Do I believe a team from outside the four can win the comp? I do. The competitions that tight and its that even. Any team can beat anyone on their day.Despite their recent slump, Thurston is confident the Cowboys arent far away from re-discovering their mojo.Its a feeling coach Paul Green also shares.Theres plenty of accountability and thats what you want to see when you dont play up to scratch, Green said.Itll come back when were prepared to fight hard to get it to come back. official nfl jerseys cheap .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. cheap jerseys from china .

How great will be revealed in the next couple of days at the board of governors meeting in Pebble Beach, Calif. Rated the perfect fit for finals footy by his coach, feisty GWS Giants ruckman Shane Mumford will happily clean up former apprentice Sam Naismith and other old Sydney teammates in Saturdays AFL qualifying final.Mumford is preparing to play his 50th game for the Giants and his 150th overall.Hes the perfect mould for finals footy, because he likes contact, he likes to play with aggression, Giants coach Leon Cameron said of Mumford on Wednesday.Theres no doubt theres going to be probably 80 to 100 stoppages on the weekend, which hell be involved in a number of them, with (backup ruckman) Rory (Lobb).Hes experienced now because hes been there and done that with the Swans, so its good for our young group to have a big presence in the ruck, which we need come these sort of finals games.Mumfords nine-season AFL journey includes 21 games in two years for Geelong and 79 over four campaigns for Sydney, where he won a premiership in 2012.Its a bit weird playing against your old team, but Ive done it enough times that it doesnt affect me too much, Mumford said.I go out there with that same intent and same attack on the ball and if I can clean up a few blokes early, Ill be quite happy with it.Asked if that included the increasinglyy influential Naismith, who is nine centimetres taller, Mumford said if he gets in my way Ill try and get him. wholesale nfl jerseys. Mumfords final year at Sydney was Naismiths first and Saturdays match will be the first time they have clashed in an AFL game.I actually spent a fair bit of time training with him before I left the Swans, Mumford said of Naismith.I know him quite well and hes well improved this year, so its going to be a big challenge for me.Naismith played just one game in his first three years at Sydney, but capitalised on an injury to frontline ruckman Kurt Tippett, playing the last eight matches.Naismith got his chance and has really relished that, Mumford said.Hes stepped up and I think hell probably play a fair chunk of the role in the ruck this week.Mumford said the many Giants finals rookies were excited but he expected nerves might kick in later in the week.Emerging Giants midfielder Jack Steele, who was pushing for senior selection after a 41-possession game in a NEAFL finals match last weekend, is likely to miss the rest of the season after suffering a foot injury on Tuesday.

NEW YORK -- Luis Severino walked off the mound in the fourth inning, headed to an offseason of uncertainty following a sophomore season of frustration. Cheap Shoes Free Shipping .Expected to be a major component of the New York Yankees rotation, the 22-year-old right-hander was demoted to the minors three times.At the beginning it was a tough situation. I got sent down, but Im finishing strong, he said Saturday after the Yankees rallied to beat the Baltimore Orioles 7-3 in their penultimate game of the season. Its good.Severino was 5-3 with a 2.89 ERA in 11 starts over the final two months last season. But he went 3-8 with a 5.83 ERA this year in 11 starts and 10 relief appearances, making only four big league starts after mid-May.New York wants him to develop a changeup to go with his 97 mph fastball and slider. Because he doesnt have a consistent third pitch, the Yankees could shift him to the bullpen.I think its a topic of discussion for the winter, manager Joe Girardi said. I think what you try to do next spring is you take the 12 best pitchers when you leave camp.New Yorks projected 2017 rotation includes Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia and Michael Pineda. Beyond that, Severino is slated to compete with Luis Cessa, Bryan Mitchell and others. And then there are possible additions in trades and free agency.I think the one thing that players need to understand is theres no certainty in this game, Girardi said. When you take the field on a daily basis, you have to prove yourself, so theres nothing given to anyone in this game. So you have to go out and earn it. So I think its important that you never forget that. He understands that he had an up-and-down year. He knows that.Baltimore built a 3-0 lead on Michael Bourns two-run single in the second and Manny Machados third-inning homer on an 0-2 pitch. Starting after the Yankees decided to skip Tanakas final turn, Severino allowed five hits in 3 2/3 innings, leaving after 66 pitches.I think I need to work on my changeup and my fastball command, he said.Austin sparked the comeback against tiring Wade Miley with an RBI single in the fifth and a home run in the seventh around Chase Headleys run-scoring double in the sixth. Austin Romine hit a two-run single against All-Star setup man Brad Brach in the eighth, and Brett Gardner doubled in two runs off Oliver Drake.Tyler Clippard (2-3) pitched a perfect eighth, and Dellin Betances struck out the side after an infield hit in the ninth. The Yankees sent the wild card-chasing Orioles to their second loss in eight games.I think everyone in there wants to finish strong, said Headley, whose eighth-inning double down the right-field line set up Romines hit. You play the game with integrity to try and make sure everybody has a fair shot.CLANKThird base coach Joe Espada gave Headley a stop sign on Romines hit, but Headley kept going after making contact with shortstop J.J. Hardy. Third base umpire Jim Reynolds signaled Headley should be allowed to score.It was obstruction. So I wasnt real clear if I didnt go home whether Id be awarded home, Headley said.GOODBYE TEXPlaying his next-to-last game before retirement, Yankees slugger Mark Teixeira went 1 for 2 and left for a pinch runner after his fifth-inning single.JUDGE-MENT TIMERF Aaron Judge, sidelined since a season-ending oblique strain, was back in the clubhouse. He hit .179 with four homers and 10 RBI in 27 games after his Aug 13 call-up, striking out 42 times in 84 at-bats.The strikeouts are a concern, Girardi said. When he hits it, theres a real good chance hes going to hit it hard, and hes going to have misses that go out of the ballpark, thats the bottom line, because hes so big and strong.INCOMPLETENew York is nearing its first season without having any complete games from its starting pitchers. The Yankees had one each in 2004, 2007 and 2009. Miami, Milwaukee and Toronto also had no complete games going into Saturday.MEMORY LANEOn the 55th anniversary of Roger Maris 61st home run, son Kevin Maris threw out the ceremonial first pitch, flanked by brothers Randy, Rich and Roger Jr.DOWN ON THE FARMAlex Rodriguez met with players at the Yankees minor league complex in Tampa, Florida, and worked with SSs Jorge Mateo and Gleyber Torres, and 3Bs Miguel Andujar and Kyle Holder, then stayed in the dugout for the instructional league game against Baltimore.UP NEXTCessa (4-3) is slated to start Sunday for New York against RHP Kevin Gausman (8-12). Cheap Shoes Sale Online .

LOUIS -- Cardinals cleanup hitter Allen Craig says hes recovered from a foot injury and ready to be put on St. http://www.cheapshoesfastshipping.com/ .S. hockey team after paying his dues as an NHL general manager for more than three decades and giving up a lot of his free time to help USA Hockey. CHASKA, Minn. -- Its a fair bet that most people would name Ian Poulter as the player who best embodies Europes Ryder Cup spirit, if they were asked.Hes the guy with the bulging eyes, the standout celebrations, the 72 percent points-won record -- the man they have started to call The Postman because he has delivered so often.Poulter is a deserving star of Team Europe after five impressive appearances as a player, thats for sure, and he could have a big role to play in Minnesota as a vice captain after injury took him out of contention in a playing capacity.But could there be a case for giving longevity more credit, for a less-showy player who has consistently made the team and secured the trophy? Could there be a case for Lee Westwood being Europes Mr. Ryder Cup?The former world No. 1 has headed to Hazeltine for his 10th consecutive appearance this week and has an eighth success in his sights.He has already been on the winning side for Europe more times than any other player for that team or its predecessor, Great Britain and Ireland.Behind Westwoods seven successes, with retaining the trophy counted as a win, are Bernhard Langer (six), Colin Montgomerie (five), Ian Woosnam (five), Sergio Garcia (five) and Nick Faldo (five) -- who made a record 11 appearances in the competition.Its quite a list, and taking home the trophy from Minnesota would put Westwood, whose lack of a major title has been cited so often, joint top of the all-time wins list with Americas Billy Casper, who ended his career a winner of 51 PGA tournaments.It would be nice to be on another winning team, Westwood told ESPN. Im not sure anybody [else] will have been on seven winning [European] teams. And there are individual records to look at, as well. Id like to get past Nick Faldos total.Westwood needs just 2? points to claim Faldos European record as the competitions highest scorer, and four individual victories would put him top of the all-time list for that benchmark, as well.The former achievement would likely be celebrated with a glass of champagne and packet of pickled onion Monster Munch [crisps], but after nearly 20 years of playing experience in the Ryder Cup, he said the teams success is more important to him.There cant be much that Westwood doesnt know or hasnt experienced at the Ryder Cup -- the competition he loves for its emotion and needle; the atmosphere he compares to that of a soccer match -- and that could be invaluable with six rookies on Europes 12-man team.Strategy, dealing with pressure, handling the atmosphere and making pairings work are all among his strengths; his barbed comments about Tiger Woods and Davis Love III last week to ESPN were unlikely to have been made without having been thought through.No wonder Darren Clarke, who made Westwood one of his captains picks, has called his old friend his general, the leader who has been there and done it.I remember watching it [the Ryder Cup] on TV from The Belfry in 1985, watching Sam [Torrance] hole the winning putt, Westwood said. I went in 1989 and 1993 too, and you dont even have to be into golf to be grabbed by it. That is the great thing -- it draws non-golfers in.The Ryder Cup is definitely up there. Its been a big part of my career.Westwoods Ryder Cup memoriesValderrama, 1997(Europe 14? - USA 13?)My memories of this first one are all good. Seve [Ballesteros] captaincy, Faldo as a partner, playing pretty well, being in a team of people Id grown up idolising. I was a bit starstruck in a way. It was only my fourth year on the European Tour, and I had my practice round with Faldo, Langer, Monty [Montgomerie], Woosie [Woosnam], and Seve was there showing me how to play trick shots. It was slightly surreal.Brookline, 1999(USA 14? - Europe 13?)That was the first one I played in the United States, so I really didnt know what to expect from the crowd. It was a big course, and we played well the first couple of days, but not on the Sunday. It was still a great week with some good memories but the wrong result. I had a good partnership with Clarke, Mark James was a good captain, with a good sense of humour, and I remember the ferocity of the crowd was more than I expected.I didnt really get anything from the crowd I couldnt handle though. Im that kind of character: Not a lot bothers me, and I dont mind a bit of banter. There are certain players who, if a butterfly flaps its wings five fields away, they start again. That doesnt work so well at the Ryder Cup when people are shouting.The Belfry, 2002(Europe 15? - USA 12?)The competition had been put off a year because of 9/11, and it was the first time I had played in the Ryder Cup in the UK. The Belfry was only an hour and 20 minutes from where I lived, so there was a lot of home suupport. Wholesale Shoes China Free Shipping. . I remember the crowds were fantastic; they always are at the Ryder Cup. Myself and Sergio [Garcia] losing against Tiger and Love was sickening, but Phil Price beating Phil Mickelson was a great moment.The celebrations were pretty good too -- they normally are. They went all night and I think a couple of players were caught in the stands on the 18th green afterwards with beer in their hands at about 5 a.m. The celebrations stick with you; there was a great atmosphere in the bar, all the crowd were in there and they got right into it -- a lot of singing. I was probably the instigator of that. I remember Phil Price being there saying, Tell em who I beat, tell em who I beat.Oakland Hills, 2004(Europe 18? - USA 9?)We had a great team and were quite confident. I partnered with Sergio [Garcia] and Darren that week. I remember me and Darren beating Phil and Tiger. We were three down after four and needed something on the last. I holed a putt from five or six feet on the last to ensure that Europe retained it, which was one of my better memories. Langers captaincy was good: how thorough, meticulous he was in his planning.The K Club, 2006(Europe 18? -USA 9?)Darrens wife had died a few weeks before, and me and him were the two wild-card picks. We both had great records at the K Club and knew our way around. There was a lot of home support for Darren, and the Irish people -- great at getting behind the team -- were brilliant. That was the most emotional one, obviously for the wrong reasons, especially on the first morning on the first tee. Darren did a phenomenal job pulling himself together with what must have been going through his mind. I think it made it easier for him playing with me. You know with that sort of friendship when to talk and when not to.Valhalla, 2008(USA 16? - Europe 11?)I dont remember too many high points from that week. I was unbeaten the first day, getting two halves, which tied me with Arnold Palmers record of going 12 games in a row undefeated, but that was probably the high point. Ive only been on the losing side twice, and it hurts for a while. You try to get on with the rest of the year and put it out of your mind. I didnt go long after that before I played another tournament.Celtic Manor, 2010(Europe 14? - USA 13?)It was very wet and went into the Monday, but that was another great team performance. We had a great team, and I made a good partnership with Luke Donald. We won 7 and 6, beating Tiger and Steve Stricker on one of the days. Graeme McDowell holing the putt on the 16th and us winning on the 17th sticks in my mind. It looked like it was slipping away from us at one stage and there isnt usually too much in it. A couple of times we have won by a lot, but normally the key moments are during the Sunday when somebody gets the momentum or turns the game around.Medinah, 2012(Europe 14? - USA 13?)This has to be my favourite Ryder Cup, and the incredible last-day performance by everybody stands out. Ian [Poulter] gave us a bit of momentum on the Saturday night, but we were still 10-6 down with a lot to do. The lads went out early and put a lot of blue on the board and everybody else backed it up. To come back like that away from home was amazing.There was quite a positive attitude in the team room on Saturday night. Even though we were down, when the draw came out we all fancied the look of our matches. We thought maybe we could put them under a bit of pressure and it might get the home fans a bit nervy, transfer to the players. It was the confidence we had in ourselves. There were two or three of us in the team room who had played in Boston in 1999 and seen what happened when the American team got on roll there from 10-6 down. We figured: Why couldnt the Europeans do it?Gleneagles, 2014(Europe 16? - USA 11?)The crowd was good again, and I felt quite confident all the way through. Paul McGinleys captaincy was excellent and covered pretty much everything. Paul had done quite a bit of stats work and a fair bit on motivational stuff, so we were all pretty fired up. Sir Alex Ferguson came in the team room and gave us a little chat, but Paul and the vice captains and myself and Ian [Poulter], we all gave a talk that helped.I got Seves points total record in this one, which was a bit of a milestone, and it was a good performance by all the lads on the last day. There had been a good comeback from Graeme McDowell at the top of the order after being down against Jordan Spieth gave us good momentum, and it was a great shot by Jamie Donaldson to win. I was playing the group behind him, and the crowd went nuts. ' ' '
WACO, Texas -- Manu Lecomte had 19 points and Al Freeman scored 18 as Baylor survived a late run by Florida Gulf Coast for an 81-72 win on Friday night. Wholesale Air Max 97 Canada .Jo Lual-Acuil Jr. had 12 points and five blocks -- including two key swats late in the game -- for Baylor (3-0). Johnathan Motley scored 12 and Terry Maston had 10 points.Brandon Goodwin scored 22 for FGCU (1-2). Zach Johnson had 17 points, Christian Terrell came off the bench to score 16 and Antravious Simmons had 10 points.Baylor hit the first shot of the second half to take a 12-point lead but the Eagles used a 9-2 run to cut the advantage to 46-41 with 17:44 to play. FGCU eventually tied the game at 53 when Simmons hit a short turnaround jumper on the baseline with 11:41 remaining. The Eagles took their first lead -- 58-55 -- on a 3 by Johnson at the 10:13 mark.In Baylors 66-49 win over No. 4 Oregon on Thursday, the Bears led 33-23 at the half, and the Ducks whittled that down to 1.Thats twice in a row weve come out with 10-point leads and had those evaporate, Baylor coach Scott Drew said. We were sluggish against Oregon coming out in the zone, so we came out (tonight) in man. They made their first seven. That didnt really work, either. So I dont know what defense well come out in the second half next time.Florida Gulf Coast went scoreless for more than 4 1/2 minutes midway through the second half, and Baylor took advantage with a 9-0 run that put the Bears up 64-58 with 6:24 remaining. The Eagles pulled to within a point three times, but another 9-0 run from Baylor left the Bears up 77-67 with 37 seconds left.Baylor shot 65 percent (13-of-20) from the field in the first half, and was 12-of-28 (42 percent) in the second.I think we regrouped a little bit in the second half, FGCU coach Joe Dooley said. We got our defense a little bit more situated and got into a better offensive flow.Baylor made 27 of its 31 free throw attempts, and the Eagles were 10-of-11 from the line and 10-of-19 on 3-point attempts.We talked to our guys about taking what they give us, Dooley said. Baylor pushed and sort of crowded the inside a little bit. I thought the guys did a good job of penetrating and passing.BIG PICTUREWith Florida Gulf Coasts leading returning scorer and rebounder Marc-Eddy Norelia out with a broken hand, junior guard Brandon Goodwin has taken over the scoring, averaging 20 points in the Eagles first three games.Baylor should get a look from some voters in next weeks poll.

RENTON, Wash. Jordan 12 Cheap Real . -- Richard Sherman felt good enough on Wednesday to break out his Halloween costume a little early, donning a cape, grabbing a wand, and presenting a very authentic Harry Potter look.It was a drastic difference from late Sunday night and into Monday morning when Sherman was suffering from dehydration and fatigue on the flight back to Seattle after being on the field for nearly 100 plays and more than 46 minutes of game time in the Seahawks 6-6 tie with the Arizona Cardinals.Five quarters of football is pretty tough. But Quidditch -- the Beaters, the Chasers, trying to find the Golden Snitch -- is tough, Sherman said Wednesday. Five quarters of football, though, in that element, that takes the cake.In all seriousness, Sundays tie with Arizona left the Seahawks defenders exhausted. Never before had a Seattle defense been on the field longer and the effects were notable.Between special teams and defense, strong safety Kelcie McCray was on the field for 108 plays, the most of any player in the NFL this season. Linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright were on the field for 102 total plays. Sherman and Earl Thomas played 99 plays and DeShawn Shead was in for all 95 defensive snaps.It was an exhausting experience and three days later those involved were still trying to recover.I didnt know how much it was but I did know it was a long time, McCray said.Arizona held the ball for 46 minutes, 21 seconds Sunday. According to the Seahawks, that was the 11th-highest total for any regular-season game since time of possession was first tracked in 1977. Sherman wasnt the only one who needed IV fluids. Wagner left at one point during the game to get fluids in the locker room and missed only one play.Sherman seemed to have the most side effects from the game, being told afterward he was suffering effects of heat exhaustion. Sherman said it wasnt until Tuesday night that he started to feel normal again.They said I had a fever, but I had the shivers. It was bad, bad stuff, Sherman said. Probably around the third quarter, third quarter my legs started locking up. After a while you just kind of deal with it. Got to finish the game.Shermans body seemed to fail him on one play in particular in overtime where he attempted to undercut a throw for J.J. Nelson but couldnt get any push from his legs to break up the play. Nelson caught the pass and if not for McCrays effort to tackle him inside the 5, the game would have been over.At first I thought it was going to be a touchdown. I was like `this guy is about to score, game over. I just ran as fast as I (could) and gave everything I could to get him down, McCray said.Coach Pete Carroll revamped his Monday schedule to give players a few extra hours of sleep and some of the key contributors were expected to get a lighter amount of practice time this week in preparation for a long road trip to New Orleans.Right from the beginning leaving the locker room, we were talking making sure that throughout the next couple days that rest is really important, eating properly and getting everything all balanced back again, Carroll said. Weve been all over that. That kicks us really back to today, were in pretty normal mode, but were still accounting for those guys that had the big workloads and were going to take that into account as we measure the reps during the course of the week.Game notes Seattle is still unsure who will start at left tackle. Bradley Sowell suffered an MCL sprain in his right knee on Sunday but was trying to convince Carroll and the training staff he could play. Rookie George Fant, rookie Rees Odhiambo and veteran JMarcus Webb are the likely candidates if Sowell is held out. ... Seattle released veteran RB C.J. Spiller and signed FB Will Tukuafu on Wednesday.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Jordan 12 For Sale .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. Air Jordan Retro 12 Canada .

DETROIT -- The Houston Astros are a little pinched in the outfield and on the bench until center fielder Carlos Gomez gets back into action. Tobias Enstrom Jersey.Houston plays the middle of a three-game weekend series in Detroit on Saturday night with Mike Fiers facing Justin Verlander in a matchup of right-handers.Doug Fister didnt travel with Houston -- hes not scheduled to start again until Monday -- to be with his wife awaiting the birth of their first child. The Astros will place Fister on paternity leave once the babys birth is imminent and at that time could add an extra player to alleviate the bench shortage.They had another setback Friday night when first baseman Marwin Gonzalez had to come out in the seventh due to right hand soreness. If Gonzalez, who is listed as day-to-day, cant play for a game or two, that would leave Houston with just its backup catcher as its reserve.Gomez suffered a mild hamstring pull Wednesday and Friday said he hoped to be able to play Sunday.I dont want to put a date on it, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. Hes got to run first.Houston added infielder Tyler White when it placed Luis Valbuena on the 15-day disabled list but that still left the club with just catcher Jason Castro and outfielder Preston Tucker as useable reserves and it had to hold Castro in reserve Friday in case something happened to starter Evan Gattis.We had to make a move, Hinch said. Were pretty banged up.Houston is facing Detroits best pitcher over the last decade, Verlander, on Saturday night. Verlander is going for his 11th win after earning his 10th on Monday in Boston.Verlander (10-6, 3.64 ERA) is 3-0 with a 1.60 ERA for July entering his final start of the month and will be looking to pitch Detroit to its fifth straight win after Tyler Collins, Justin Upton and James McCann homered in Fridays 14-6 win after the Tigers fell behind in the first inning.Once we scored two, its a fresh game, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. Looking at it from the opponents point of view the last thing you want to do and weve done it, is when you score runs, you dont want to give up runs the next half-inning.But when youre in our situation, down a couple runs, best thing you can do is score a couple runs, get back in it, tie it, or even score more, take the lead. But it basically reset the game.Over his career, Verlander is 3-0 with a 2.06 ERA against the Astros in six starts.In Fiers, Detroit will be facing a pitcher who is 1-0 against it in three career starts. He beat the Tigers earlier this season in Houston. His career ERA against the Tigers is 3.24.Fiers (7-4, 4.69 ERA) won his last start, allowing three runs in seven innings to the Los Angeles Angels.The Tigers brought lefty Daniel Norris back to Detroit following his second rehab start (three runs, six innings) but Ausmus declined to reveal exactly when he gets plugged back into the rotation next week.Rookie Michael Fulmer has his next start pushed back because Detroit has two days off between them. But exactly when he starts again is partially contingent on when Norris and the other Tigers starter on a rehab assignment, Jordan Zimmermann, get slotted back into the rotation.Norris worked Thursday so he could be dropped back into the rotation Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox. If Zimmerman comes out of his rehab start Friday well he could pitch Wednesday.But Ausmus is likely to have Fulmer work one of three games against the White Sox.Detroit made two minor league moves Friday. It promoted hard-throwing closer prospect Joe Jimenez to Triple-A Toledo and also signed former Texas lefty Cesar Ramos to a Triple-A contract. Shawn Matthias Jersey .C. Lions has come to an end. Banks told TSN on Jan 2 that he had no interest in playing out the option year of his contract with the Lions in 2014, and he again made that clear in a conversation with Lions GM Wally Buono last week. Cheap Adidas Jets Jerseys .

Its an influence in football and a big part of the game. TORONTO -- Team Canada fought off its poorest performance of the World Cup of Hockey and found a way to edge Europe 3-1 in Game 1 of the best-of-three final Tuesday night.A masterpiece this was not.Whether it was because the Air Canada Centre was lifeless and the players got spooked, or perhaps the Canadians had trouble getting fired up to face a Europe team that had never existed before this tournament, the Olympic champions looked unmotivated at times, were sloppy with the puck, and lacked the kind of four-line cohesion we had seen since the start of the tournament.And yet perhaps it just goes to show the disparity in talent between these two teams: Europe played a strong game Tuesday night, while Canada played well below its potential -- and still the result went in favor of the favorites.Carey Price had something to do with that. The 2014-15 Hart and Vezina Trophy winner made a number of difficult saves to keep Europe at bay.Its a also a reminder of how daunting it is to beat this Canadian side, which has now gone 11-0 since the start of the 2014 Sochi Olympics (and won 15 consecutive games in best-on-best hockey dating back to the Vancouver Olympics in 2010). Even when a team is able to finally wrestle the puck away from Team Canada and generate chances, like Europe did plenty of times on Tuesday night, it finds the best goalie in the world waiting for them. Its almost not fair.Brad Marchand and Steven Stamkos scored in the opening frame for Canada, but Europes?Tomas Tatar?made things interesting with a second-period goal for Europe.Team Canada head coach Mike Babcock looked none too pleased as the second period played itself out, Canada easily playing its worst 20 minutes of the tournament.Bergerons third-period tally -- how great has that Sidney Crosby unit been? -- ended the suspense.The crowd certainly didnt help. There were empty seats throughout the rink eveen though officially it was a sellout, which means lots of people paid for tickets but had better things to do on this night. Teppo Numminen Jersey. Its worth noting the Toronto Blue Jays, trying to cement a wild-card spot in the final week of the baseball season, were opening a series with AL East rival Baltimore just down the street.The point was hammered home during a TV timeout when the giant scoreboard in the Air Canada Centre showed Mario Lemieuxs winning goal from the deciding game of the 1987 Canada Cup final, the crowd at Copps Coliseum that night in Hamilton absolutely delirious. It was electric.You got absolutely none of that on this night in the opening of this World Cup final. Perhaps that has to do with the opposition. Team Europe is a terrific story, but lets not kid ourselves, its hard for Canadian hockey fans to muster much animosity for a team that didnt exist before this tournament.Of course, had Europe prevailed on this night, that might have added all kinds of intrigue in this final. Maybe the Europeans can pull it off Thursday night in Game 2. But I suspect Team Canada, after a talking-to from Babcock, will be much better and energized to end the tournament.Three stars1.?Carey Price, G, Team Canada: Rarely during this Team Canada run that dates back to Sochi has the Montreal Canadiens star had to make the difference, but he certainly did on this night. Canada needed him. And he delivered with his usual poise and confidence.2.?Anze Kopitar, C, Team Europe: The Los Angeles Kings captain was all over the puck, having an impactful night that gave Canada fits.3.?Patrice Bergeron, RW, Team Canada: Had a beauty of an assist in setting up the opening goal and then scored the back-breaker midway through the third period to cement the win.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- No. 8 Texas A&M outlasted ninth-ranked Tennessee 45-38 in double overtime Saturday to improve to 6-0 for the first time since 1994 after starting the previous two seasons with five wins before losing.Its great, defensive end Myles Garrett said. We finally got over the hump, the little 5-0 hill that weve been facing every year.Trevor Knight bulled in for a 1-yard touchdown in the second overtime, and Armani Watts intercepted Joshua Dobbs pass on the next play for Tennessees seventh turnover to end the game.The big takeaway from this was we were able to withstand some things, not play great but make enough plays to win the game without some of our better players being 100 percent, coach Kevin Sumlin said.The teams exchanged field goals in the first overtime.Knight threw for 239 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 110 yards and three more scores.The Volunteers (5-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) had rallied from double-digit deficits to win four of their last five games, including last weeks last-play victory over Georgia. They trailed by 21 points in the third quarter Saturday thanks to six turnovers before tying it on Alvin Kamaras 18-yard touchdown reception with 41 seconds left.Proud of the resolve, but the turnovers didnt give us an opportunity, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said.The seven turnovers were the most A&M had forced since 2005 and their five fumble recoveries were the most since 1997.Texas A&M (6-0, 4-0) had a chance to win it in regulation, but Daniel LaCameras 38-yard field goal attempt sailed wide left.The Aggies could have put this one away with less than 2 minutes remaining, but freshman Trayveon Williams had the ball knocked from his hands and out of the back of the end zone just before he crossed the goal line on a 71-yard run. Williams finished with 217 yards rushing, a school record for a true freshman.Texas A&M was facing third-and-2 when Knight dashed 62 yards for a touchdown that pushed the lead to 35-21 with about three minutes left. Kamaras 4-yard run about a minute later made it a one-score game.The Aggies built a 21-7 lead in the first quarter after three fumbles by Tennessee. Knight threw touchdown passes of 13 and 2 yards and had a 7-yard TD run in the opening frame.Saturday continued a trend of bad starts for the Volunteers, who have been outscored 62-17 in the first quarter this season.Dobbs finished with 398 yards passing and a touchdown and Kamara stepped up with leading-rusher Jalen Hurd out, finishing wwith 161 yards receiving and a touchdown and 127 yards rushing and two more scores. Air Jordan Retro 12 Wholesale. .THE TAKEAWAYTENNESSEE: The Volunteers finally learned that they cant give good teams such a big cushion and expect to come back again and again. Theyll have to find a way to get off to a better start and cure their turnover woes if they expect to compete with No. 1 Alabama next week.TEXAS A&M: Texas A&Ms defense again showed it is the strength of this team by forcing the flurry of turnovers and pressuring Dobbs all day long. The offense needs to be more consistent for the Aggies to have a chance to topple Alabama in two weeks.We need to finish, Sumlin said. Were a work in progress there.POLL IMPLICATIONSTENNESSEE: The Volunteers will certainly drop a few spots after the loss, but they might not fall too far after their late comeback and considering A&M is also a top-10 team.TEXAS A&M: The Aggies will likely move up a place or two as one of the few remaining undefeated teams. They will certainly jump at least one spot after No. 6 Houston lost to Navy on Saturday.INJURY UPDATETennessee center Dylan Wiesman appeared to suffer a head injury making a block in the first quarter and did not return. Defensive tackle Danny OBrien was put on a stretcher and carted off the field in the fourth quarter. Tennessee officials told CBS that he was moving all his extremities, but Jones refused to comment on injuries after the game.PLAYING HURTGarrett returned after missing last week with a leg injury despite saying he was only about 65-70 percent healthy. He was scheduled to play on third downs only on Saturday, but insisted on playing every play of both overtimes.That tells you a lot about him, Sumlin said. He was really hurting.Garrett was asked just how much pain he was in during overtime.Not enough to quit on my team, he said.He finished with three tackles, including a sack that forced a fumble in the first quarter.BALL SECURITYJones was left searching for answers on how to solve his teams turnover problem.We have to get it corrected and Im dumbfounded because we spend so much time on ball security, he said. We may take 25 minutes a day and work on ball security because we have to get it corrected.UP NEXTTENNESSEE: The Volunteers host Alabama next Saturday.TEXAS A&M: Texas A&M has a week off before traveling to face the top-ranked Crimson Tide on Oct. 22.

PITTSBURGH -- The adjustment period was bumpy, filled with shaky hands, shoddy route running and Sammie Coates own admission that he wasnt in the shape he needed to be to play in the NFL.And if the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver is being honest, its not quite over even after the best day of his suddenly blossoming career.Coates understands that his 139-yard performance in Sundays 31-13 win over the New York Jets showcased both his immense potential and just how far he still has to go. Its why hes choosing to focus on the handful of drops rather than his video game-like burst from two Jets defenders that propelled him to the end zone for the first time on a 72-yard catch-and-run that made it seem like he was controlled by a 12-year-old furiously mashing the sprint button on his controller.The touchdown is just part of the game, Coates said. When you make mistakes, you dont care about the plays you make. You care about the ones you left on the field.There were a handful to choose from, including a slightly underthrown pass from Ben Roethlisberger near the New York goal line in the second quarter in which Coates adjusted perfectly, only to see the ball go right between his arms. Or maybe the flip in the second quarter that should have been the easiest 1-yard touchdown of Coates life and instead ended with him hanging his head in frustration when he failed to get the lob in.Its the kind of miscue that would have haunted Coates during his rookie year. Not anymore. When Roethlisberger approached Coates to give him a pep talk, he found Coates ready to beat him to the punch.He almost sought me out to come back to him and believe in him, Roethlisberger said. I said you dont have to tell me that. Im going to come back to you and believe in you and come back to you. It was good to see that growth.The kind the Steelers (4-1) desperately needed Coates to make over the summer with Martavis Bryant out for the season while serving a one-year suspension for violating the NFLs substance-abuse policy. All Coates has done over the first five weeks is average an NFL-best 22.1 yards per catch with at least one reception of 40-yards or more in each game, one short of the club-record streak Mike Wallace set in 2011.Coates is becoming the downfield threat Pittsburgh envisioned when it took him in the fourth round of the 2015 draft. The Steelers were well aware of Coates issues with concentration, and he spent most of his rookie year inactive on Sundays as he struggled with consistency. Being healthy but unnable to see the field wasnt exactly the way Coates envisioned life in the NFL. Köpa Nike Air Max Billigt. He arrived for camp well aware that Bryants absence left a noticeable void, one Coates spent training camp trying to prove to Roethlisberger he was ready to fill. Roethlisberger noticed the difference immediately and repaid Coates dedication with a vow to stick with him while Coates worked through the bumps Roethlisberger knew were going to come.Its why Roethlisberger kept going back to Coates on Sunday as part of Roethlisbergers plan to help Coates develop what the quarterback called the short-term memory necessary to survive.Thats the great thing about Ben, wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey said. (Offensive coordinator) Todd (Haley) can call all the plays he wants, but Ben is in control of where the ball goes, and Ben kept feeding Sammie to let him know, `Hey, Im going to need you.Down near the goal line again in the fourth quarter and looking for a knockout blow, Roethlisberger found Coates on a crossing pattern that ended with Coates holding on for his second touchdown of the day. Remarkable considering Coates played the second half with stitches in between the index and middle fingers of his left hand, and Roethlisberger isnt exactly known for lobbing it near the end zone.I had to finish what I started, Coates said. I had to make up my errors. I felt like I had to play.The pain came later. Coates sported a splint on his left hand in the locker room and didnt practice Wednesday, leaving his status for Sundays visit to Miami (1-4) uncertain. Whenever hes available, he gives Pittsburgh a dimension that forces opponents to make an increasingly difficult decision on whether to double-team All-Pro Antonio Brown.With AB on the field, you know they got to watch him, Coates said. The defense, they got a lot to worry about with our offense. With the players we got around the ball, its hard to stop it.Including the wide receiver quickly growing up on the job.Game notes The Steelers signed RB Karlos Williams (younger brother of LB Vince Williams) to the practice squad. ... RT Marcus Gilbert (ankle), LB Ryan Shazier (knee) and WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. ... CB Justin Gilbert (knee), S Robert Golden (hamstring), RB Roosevelt Nix (back) and WR Eli Rogers (toe) were full participants.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
SEATTLE -- Steven Hauschkas 44-yard field goal with 1:57 remaining capped the 20th career fourth quarter or overtime comeback for Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, and the Seahawks pulled out a wild 26-24 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Boty Nike Air Max Vyprodej .After watching Matt Ryan blitz the Seahawks for 21 third-quarter points, it was Wilsons turn in the fourth quarter. He led a 70-yarddrive that was capped by Christine Michaels 1-yard run with 4:47 left, but a blocked extra point by RaShede Hageman still had Seattle trailing 24-23.Seattle then got a needed big play from its defense. Ryans pass slipped through Julio Jones hands, was tipped in the air by Richard Sherman and eventually landed in the arms of Earl Thomas, giving Seattle possession at midfield with 3:48 remaining. It was the first time in the game that Jones was targeted and didnt make the catch.Seattle stalled at the Atlanta 26. This time Hauschka was perfect after missing a 29-yard attempt earlier in the fourth quarter, the result of a bad snap.Ryan was incomplete on his last four throws, including a breakup by Sherman on a long pass to Jones on which the Falcons screamed for a pass interference flag.Wilson was 25 of 37 for 270 yards. Michael had two touchdown runs and rookie Alex Collins added his first NFL touchdown on a 2-yard run.Atlantas top-ranked offense was stymied by the leagues best defense for a half, only to rally in the third quarter and nearly pull off a sweep of Denver and Seattle.Seattle dominated the line of scrimmage in the first half, hitting Ryan eight times, sacking him three times and holding the Falcons to 86 total yards. Which made what happened in the second half a shocking turnaround.Ryan finished 27 of 42 for 335 yards and three touchdowns. He hit Jones for a 36-yard score on the first drive of the second half; found Mohamed Sanu on a 10-yard TD; and later connected with Levine Toilolo on a 46-yarder as the Falcons rallied from a 14-point halftime deficit to lead 24-17 going to the fourth quarter.Jones had seven catches for 139 yards.RYANS THIRD QUARTERIt was stunning. He was 13 of 17 for 220 yards and three TDs. Since the start of the 2014 season, the Seahawks have held 25 teams to less than 220 yards passing for an entire game.It helped that Ryan got two huge chunk plays on blown coverages. The first was Jones 36-yard touchdown catch , and later Toilolos 46-yard TD catch on a similar play.SHERMAN ERUPTIONSherman lost his cool on the Seattle sideline following Jones TD catch early in the third quarter. Shermans anger was at the blown coverage that led to Jones being wide open down the sideline, but he was unable to control his emotions on the sideline and was screaming at coaches and teammates. Thomas, Bobby Wagner, Michael Bennett and injured Kam Chancellor all took turns trying to calm Sherman.MOUNTING INJURIESSeattle was without Chancellor (groin) and defensive end Frank Clark (hamstring). Then Bennett hyperextended his right knee on the play when Sanu caught his touchdown pass to tie the game at 17. Bennett was cut-blocked by Jake Matthews and eventually limped to the locker room. Bennett returned to the sideline midway through the fourth quarter, but did not re-enter the game.Tight end Luke Willson also injured his right leg on Michaels late touchdown.STREAK CONTINUESFor the first half it looked like it would be a struggle, but Ryan continued his streak of throwing for at least 200 yards in 44 straight road games. Ryan had just 83 yards passing in the first half, but threw for 252 yard in the second half.UP NEXT:The Falcons are home for San Diego.The Seahawks are at division rival Arizona on Sunday night.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Nike Air Max Cz Eshop . As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. Boty Nike Air Max Levně . Laudrup revealed Thursday he was notified of his dismissal in "the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary. http://www.levneairmax.cz/ .

CINCINNATI -- The rematch was no match at all. Xaviers defense made sure of it.J.P. Macura scored 18 points, and Xaviers defense dug in during a dominant first half, sending the ninth-ranked Musketeers to a 64-42 victory over Northern Iowa on Saturday.Xavier (6-0) completely controlled a matchup of teams playing for the second time in six days. The Musketeers beat Northern Iowa 67-59 for championship of Tire Pros Invitational in Orlando last Sunday.This time, it was no contest. Xavier knew exactly what to expect the second time around.I think its easy, coach Chris Mack said . Northern Iowa always runs the same three plays to start the game. Im sure the players are like, `Weve got it. I was really excited about our mindset today.Edmond Sumner had 14 points and seven assists, making Xaviers offense get into a flow quickly.The Musketeers looked very comfortable in their second go-round against the Panthers (3-2). Northern Iowa had trouble finding open shots while Xavier raced ahead 30-10, going 4 of 13 from the field with seven turnovers as Xaviers defense gave its best performance of the season.The Musketeers led 35-12 at halftime, the fewest points they had allowed in any half for 34 years.Thats the best half weve played since Ive been here, said Macura , a junior. We were talking really well. We were in each others gaps.Xavier pushed the lead to 26 points early in the second half and was never threatened. Jeremy Morgan scored 14 points -- all in the second half -- for Northern Iowa. Morgan had 20 points in their game on Sunday, but missed all of his four shots in the first half while Xavier took control.The Panthers had made at least 10 3-pointers in each of their first four games this season, going 10 of 24 against Xavier on Sunday. They were only 6 of 18 in the rematch. Xavier had a 42-20 edge in rebounds, getting 15 on offense.They made it obvious that they did a better job of preparing their guys for what was the rematch, if you will, Northern Iowa coachh Ben Jacobson said. Nejlevnější Boty Nike Air Max. They outplayed us on the glass, they outplayed us in a lot of areas. They outplayed us in the areas that mattered.Northern Iowa shot 33 percent from the field and had only seven assists.I thought the difference in the game was our defensive effort at the outset, Mack said. Good teams lock in on the challenge in the moment. We defended at a really high level, as good as I can remember.BIG PICTURENorthern Iowa: The Panthers are 17-37 all-time against ranked teams, including 2-17 on the road. Both of those road wins came at Wichita State -- last season and in 2006.Xavier: Kaiser Gates got into a game for the first time. The sophomore forward was counted upon to be an integral part of Xaviers overhauled front line, but tore cartilage in his left knee and had surgery a month ago. Gates played 11 minutes, missed his only shot, got two rebounds and picked up three fouls -- not bad for someone whos had only three practices.He had a phenomenal summer, Mack said. Hes in great position as we move forward.SEE YOU SOONXavier hadnt played consecutive games against a nonconference team since it faced Yale twice in 1960.

TORONTO -- The widow of former Toronto Blue Jays broadcaster Tom Cheek says her late husband would be "humbled" by the award she will accept in his honour this weekend. Cheap NFL Jerseys 2018 . Cheek, who died in 2005, broadcast 4,306 consecutive Blue Jays games, including the clubs two World Series victories, from Torontos first contest until June 2, 2004. Shirley Cheek will be in Cooperstown, N.Y., on Saturday with her family to accept the 2013 Ford C. Frick award for broadcasting excellence as part of the Baseball Hall of Fames induction weekend. "I think Tom would be humbled and say There are others that are more deserving," she said on a conference call Monday. "Thats just how Tom felt. He always felt that we was doing the job that he loved to do, that it was an honour for him to be doing it, a boyhood dream." Cheeks most memorable call for Blue Jays fans was his description of Joe Carters home run that won the clubs second straight World Series in 1993 when his deep baritone voice shouted into the microphone: "Touch em all Joe! Youll never hit a bigger home run in your life." A recent inductee into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, Cheek was added to the Blue Jays Level of Excellence at Rogers Centre in 2005. "I dont think Tom ever really realized the impact he had until the day they put his name up on the Level of Excellence. He realized at that point how important he was to the club," said Shirley Cheek, who will deliver an acceptance speech Saturday. "He had so many people say he was the voice of summer, I listened to you on the lake, I listened to you on the tractor out in Saskatoon. "I think it really hit home when he saw that his name was going up on the wall and how much he had meant to the fans listening on radio." Shirley Cheek says it will be an emotional weekend, but she hopes that her grandchildren will begin understand what the familys patriarch meant to Canadian baseball fans. "The younger ones really dont know much about him, so I think theyre kind of in awe about all of this," she said. "I think it will really hit home to them what the true meaning of what their grandfather did for Canada and for the Toronto Blue Jays." Former Montreal Expos broadcaster Dave Van Horne won the Frick award in 2011, making Cheek the second recipient who spent the majority of his career with a Canadian team. Cheek was born June 13, 1939, in Pensacola, Fla., and began work as a backup announcer to Van Horne on Expos broadcasts. He landed the job as the radio voice of the expansion Blue Jays in 1976 and became a hallmark of summer in Toronto. Cheek called every regular-season and post-season Blue Jays game from April 7, 1977, through June 2, 2004, ending his streak to attend his fathers funeral. He sensed he was not right physically upon his return and underwent surgery to remove a brain tumour on June 13, 2004 -- his 65th birthday. Unfortunately some of the tumour was unreachable and he died a little more than a year later. "(What) I remember most about my husband was his sense of humour, his one-liners. He was famous for his one-liners," Shirley Cheek said. "(But) I miss his voice most of all. "He had such an amazing voice." Cheap Jerseys 2018 .

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Cheap Jerseys China . -- Tim Tebow insisted it was an easy decision to remain with a man who had suffered a seizure and briefly lost consciousness while seeking an autograph following the ex-quarterbacks Arizona Fall League baseball debut.The 30-year-old man, identified as Brandon Berry of Avondale, Arizona, was released from the hospital on Tuesday, the same day as the incident.Let me ask you a question: What would be more important, that I go to the locker room and I get on the bus and we get back a little bit quicker? Tebow said Wednesday. In my opinion, its not even a choice. Its the right thing to do. Its what youre supposed to do, in my opinion.You just try to, in those moments, be there for people to help people. Because there is not a bigger, better, greater thing you can do in life than to be there for people in a time of need to help them.Tebow acknowledged that Berry regained consciousness as he placed a hand on Berry to pray.The guy that I was signing for, he turned to his right, and I could see on his face something happened, Tebow said. So then I looked over. I saw Brandon, right as he was getting to the ground and going into a seizure. I just wanted to be there and pray for him.Tebow said he plans to reconnect with Berry soon.Tebow kept the mood light after Berry regained consciousness by asking if he liked Batman. Tebow later gave Berry a hard time about being a Georgia football fan.He was wearing a Batman shirt, Tebow said. ... In my opinion, when people are going through some really tough times, they still want to be treated normal. And they still want to be treated like a friend -- not necessarily just coddled.Tebow said the incident put iinto the proper context his 0-for-3 Arizona Fall League debut earlier that afternoon. NFL Jerseys China. .He noted that while he played for the?Denver Broncos, he frequently had a Wish Kid, from the Make-A-Wish foundation, on the sideline for each game. He found the experience helped him as much as the children, because it reminded him how unimportant it is when people judge him based on his on-field performance.People are whats important, he said. And an opportunity to help someone is more important than anything that I could have possibly done on a baseball diamond that day.Still, Tebow insisted his contribution to ensuring Berry regained consciousness was not a miracle -- although he would not dismiss the entire situation being labeled that way.As far as me and a miracle, no, Tebow said. But in the God that we serve, yeah, I do believe in miracles.Tebows Arizona Fall League play continued Wednesday night for the Scottsdale Scorpions against the Salt River Rafters. The night game was his first under lights in more than a decade.Tebow finished 0-for-3 with an RBI, walk and strikeout on Wednesday in his second AFL game. He is now hitless in six AFL at-bats. The RBI came when he hustled to beat out a would-be 4-6-3 double play in the fourth inning. Tebow played the full game in left field.I probably got asked 10 times by guys on my team: Whens the last time you played a night game? Tebow said before the game. I was like, Well, it was my junior year in high school. ... I always loved night games. Those have that fun, high school feel. ' ' '

Here are his mid-season NBA awards.  MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level. http://www.cheapairmax270canada.com/ . -- There were a lot of firsts for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.DUBLIN, Ohio -- Charl Schwartzel made the most of an early start to move within a shot of leader Bill Haas on Saturday morning during the completion of the rain-delayed second round of the Memorial Tournament. Rory McIlroy needed to rally to get up and down from 45 yards just to make the cut. Play was suspended for the third time on Friday night with 42 players still on the course. Haas, who followed an opening 68 with a 67 before the heavy weather came in, was safe and secure in his hotel with a three-shot lead overnight. First-round leader Schwartzel began play on the 16th hole Saturday with a par, then birdied the final two holes to put the finishing touches on a 71 that left him at 136. "I thought if I could somehow get one back and get my round back to even, Id be very happy," he said. "I managed to make two (birdies), coming up 17 and 18. Im very pleased with the way it turned out." Kyle Stanley played his final four holes on Saturday morning and was another shot back at 137. Next came Matt Kuchar and Bubba Watson at 138. Watson had to complete a 67. Robert Karlsson (71), Scott Stallings (70) and former Memorial winner Justin Rose (70) shared sixth place at 140, five shots behind Haas. McIlroy had opened with a 78 and knew he needed to go low just to stick around for the weekend. He was 4 under for his round through 14 holes when the third suspension of play finally brought the players in on Friday night. When he returned in the morning he birdied the 15th, but then had bogeys at 16 and 17. Needing a par to make the cut, he hit his drive on the closing par-4 into a deep trap, then spun his approach shot off the false front and it ended up 45 yards short and below the green. But he chipped to 4 feet and made the putt to salvage par. He slammed his club into his bag as he was leaving the green. "Bogeying 16 and 17 wasnt really the plan. And obviously having to make one up and down at the last," McIlroy said. "Im happy to be in on the weekend with a couple of rounds to work on things. But I need to commit more to my shots and not guide the ball as much, I guess -- just let it go." One player who didnt have to worry about returning to the course was five-time Memorial winner Tiger Woods. He never could get anything going and surprisingly had problems on the par 5s, shooting a 74 to stand at 1-over 145. "Tough conditions out there and I didnt exactly play my best either," said Woods, who had to battle gusting winds but still is only even on the par-5 holes over 36 holes. Air Max 270 Canada Online. "Its not that hard to make bogeys and doubles on this golf course. You miss the ball in the wrong spot, get the wrong gust, its tough." Haas, playing in just the fourth group off the tee on Friday, took advantage of conditions without a lot of wind and with little or no precipitation. He opened with three pars and then went birdie, eagle, birdie. He would have had an even bigger lead but he needed three to get down from over the green on his last hole. The tournament, the course, and the legend behind both, Jack Nicklaus, have meant a lot to the Haas family, especially Bill. "I caddied here for my dad when I was in college and loved it," he said. "Mr. Nicklaus gave me a sponsor exemption when I first turned pro to play in this event. Its something Ill never forget. It meant a lot to me." Back in the days when Haas caddied for his dad, who now plays on the Champions Tour, he always brought home a memento. "I used to always get a T-shirt here every year I came," said Haas, who is at 9-under 135 after rounds of 68 and 67. "I do have tons of Muirfield Village T-shirts. They have the softest T-shirts." Now, as is often the case, the course will also have soft greens. Heavy rains resulted in a round being interrupted for the 40th time in the tournaments 38 years -- more than one of every four rounds played. Play was suspended for 22 minutes earlier on Friday, then for 1 hour and 27 minutes later. A major storm front then hit the area, stopping play early in the evening. Kuchars 70 featured four birdies and included two bogeys, one on his final hole also. He said the conditions made everything a trial -- and he avoided the biggest storms. "This course is hard without wind. Its difficult and challenging on a normal day," he said. "Putting is challenging. These greens are similar to Augusta National. You throw in 20-plus mile-an-hour winds and it becomes really difficult." Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old Chinese eighth-grader, shot 79 on Friday after an opening 72 and missed the cut. Third-round play began under threatening skies soon after the completion of the second round. Getting through the third round might be difficult as well. A line of storms is expected Saturday afternoon and into Sunday morning.   ' ' '

Ive matured a lot since then, so Im really ready for that.Not getting too caught up in the bright lights. I think my first stint up with Miami, I was a little caught up with everything.
