The matchup gives the Eagles a chance to record the FBS victory they have struggled to come by; last years team won only one game against an FBS opponent, beating Northern Illinois, and went winless in the Atlantic Coast Conference.The ACC losing streak was stretched to nine games with the Week 1 loss to Georgia Tech. BC led 14-10 in the fourth quarter -- it could have been more, if not for missed field goals of 43 and 35 yards -- but the Eagles gave up a 22-yard gain on fourth-and-19, and then a 4-yard, go-ahead touchdown run with 35 seconds left.BC has won eight straight vs. UMass, the last meeting coming in 2014.Here are some things to look for in the Battle of the Bay State:THE MORE THINGS CHANGESo far, Boston College has looked a lot like last years team: Good defense, strong running game, bad special teams.The Eagles led the FBS in total defense in 2015, allowing just 254.3 yards per game.

Air Max 95 Clearance .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. http://www.wholesaleairmax95.com/ .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. (STATS) -- Montana senior quarterback Brady Gustafson may be the most successful and maligned quarterback rolled into one.He won a big game; can he win another? He threw those touchdowns, but did you see that turnover? Is he an NFL quarterback or isnt he?Big Sky Conference power Montana has been to the FCS playoffs more than any other program, so the Grizs passionate fan base doesnt have much patience for a learning curve. For every two steps forward, Gustafson took one backward as a first-time starter last season, but hes getting locked in as a senior, leading the Griz to a 4-1 record and the No. 10 ranking in the STATS FCS Top 25 heading into Saturdays game versus Sacramento State.Hes thrown for 1,084 passing yards over the last three games, with a school-record 47 completions against Cal Poly.Its getting noticed by everybody in Missoula. Most likely, that is.Bradys playing very well right now physically and mentally, second-year coach Bob Stitt said. We continue to grow on a weekly basis. Hes getting confidence in whats he doing, and hes continually adding to what hes checking to and getting us into. It was great to see him call some checks (against Mississippi Valley State last Saturday) that we hadnt called all yeear and had some success with it. Cheap Air Max 95 Free Shipping. . We have a quarterback-driven offense, and when your quarterbacks playing well, its kind of fun.Gustafson has completed nearly two-thirds of his pass attempts for 1,555 yards, a 311-yards-per-game average that ranks seventh nationally. He has thrown for 14 touchdowns with only four interceptions, but hes still turnover-plagued -- a complaint about him -- because he has fumbled the ball seven times and lost five of them.With NFL teams now looking for the next Carson Wentz, Gustafson has Wentz size at 6-foot-7, 230 pounds. He makes good decisions and works the field for receivers.That he beat Wentz and North Dakota State in his first career start with 434 passing yards and three touchdown passes may have raised expectations to an impossible level last season. He only played in seven games because of a leg injury, but returned to win a playoff game against South Dakota State.This season, hes been more comfortable running Stitts fast-paced offense.We just feel like if we dont turn the ball over on offense, Stitt said, were going to be tough to beat.

NEW YORK -- The Mets and Governor Andrew Cuomo honored the 2016 Little League World Series champions from Endwell, New York, prior to a game with the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys .A group of 29 players, coaches, parents and siblings took the three-hour bus ride from Endwell to Citi Field. The players spent batting practice on the field, meeting the Mets players before Cuomo presented the team with an official New York State proclamation. Rather than read the entire proclamation to a room of 12-year-olds, Cuomo summarized, saying that as governor of the state of New York, we are all very, very proud of you and what you represent in your victory and your character and how you stand for all of the important virtues of this state.Endwell became the first U.S. winner since Huntington Beach, California, in 2011 and gave New York its first championship since 1964.I dont think they understand how big of an accomplishment it was, Endwell coach Scott Rush said. Today, they get to be kids.Rush threw out the games first pitch.Captain David Wright and pitchers Robert Gsellman, Seth Lugo, Logan Verrett and Jacob deGrom -- the five players on the roster that spent time with New Yorks Double-A affiliate in Binghamton -- joined CEO Fred Wilpon and general manager Sandy Alderson for a brief reception before the governor addressed the team.Binghamton is our hometown team, Rush said.Im jealous of you guys, Wright said. Ive never been able to capture that world title. So just know that Im going to shake your hand, but Im going to shake it with a little jealousy because Id like to be where you guys are for sure.

"The car balance is decent, but I think we can still improve," Vettel said.Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen is confident his team can put up points against the Denver Broncos vaunted defence. The Broncos finished the regular season with the NFLs number one defence and have been outstanding in their playoff wins over the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots.But Olsen is confident Carolinas offence - which put up 49 points in their NFC Championship win over the Ariizona Cardinals - will be able to move the ball effectively.

PHILADELPHIA -- AJ Brodeur scored a career-high 22 points as Penn ran away from Lafayette in the second half to take an 81-52 victory Wednesday night. Cheap Nike Zoom Shoes .Brodeur, a freshman, knocked down 10 of 13 shots from the field as well as both free throw attempts while grabbing seven boards and dishing out five assists.The Quakers (3-4) held a nine-point advantage at intermission but outscored Lafayette by 20 points in the second half, 47-27. Penn was efficient from the field, hitting 33 of 59 shots (55.9 percent), including 10 of 27 from behind the arc.Matt MacDonald and Jack Silpe hit back-to-back 3-pointers seven minutes into the second half to extend the lead to 16 points.Jackson Donahue scored 15 points off the Penn bench and Matt Howard added 14 points for Penn (3-4).Paulius Zalys scored 14 points and was the only scorer to reach double figures for the Leopards (3-5). Cheap Nike Zoom Shoes Free Shipping Worldwide . The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area. Nike Zoom Shoes Buy Online . A forerunning sled crashed into the worker Thursday at the Sanki Sliding Center. The unidentified worker broke both legs and was airlifted to a nearby hospital. http://www.cheapnikezoom.com/ . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game. The match started slowly for Ivanovic, who surrendered her first two serves as Hantuchova took a 5-3 lead. OTTAWA, Ontario -- Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau broke into the NHL nearly 20 years ago. The 37-year-olds are having too much fun with the San Jose Sharks to think up hanging up their skates.I feel great, Marleau said. (Im) having fun out there so Ill keep going.Thornton logged more than 25 minutes Wednesday night in Ottawa, while Marleau played 22 minutes in the Sharks 4-3 victory over the Senators, their second shootout win in two nights.San Jose holds the puck more often than not when Thornton and Marleau take the ice. Thornton ranks second on the team in puck possession (55 percent), with Marleau just a touch back in third (54 percent).I think both of us love the game and we still feel we can play the game at a high, high level and want to contribute each and every night, said Marleau, born two months after Thornton in 1979.Thornton and Marleau are among the most productive players of the last decades, two stunning marvels of fitness who rarely miss a game. Ten players in the NHL this season werent even born when Thornton and Marleau were drafted in 1997.Marleau has missed only 31 games over more than 18 seasons since he was drafted second overall behind Thornton in 1997. He ranks first in games played among all NHL players during that stretch (1,472), last sitting out a game during the 2008-09 season.Thornton isnt far behind. He has played in 95 percent of possible games for the Boston Bruins and Sharks, missing a mere nine games since the start of the 2006-07 season.Marleau credits his longevity to adjustments in training, eating, stretching and exercise as well as a new approach to rest. The Sharks annually face some of the leagues most arduous travel and coach Pete DeBoer has made it a priority to ensure that his players, especially the old guys, get to recover.I think there wasnt too much emphasis on rest and recovery right when we first came into the league, Marleau said. Now you see a lot more teams talking about it and taking a lot more optional skates, especially with a west coast team that travels as much as we do. Cheap Nike Zoom Wholesale. . A lot of practices are video, going over video and things like that.Thornton is tops in points (1,360) and assists (981) since joining the league. The underrated Marleau ranks fifth in points (1,047) during that same 19-year span and also fifth in goals (488). Hell likely become the 45th player in NHL history to reach 500 goals at some point this season.Both endure in different ways. Never the swiftest on skates, Thornton employs superb passing, vision, and an undervalued ability to protect the puck. Marleau has long been a terrific skater with persistence and a scorers touch.But at the end of the day I think their hockey sense stands alone, Sharks captain Joe Pavelski said. They know how to work their way around the rink, make plays, win battles, those types of things, put themselves in good positions and thats allowed for good careers. Theres no secret, you need a little luck along the way, but those guys have earned everything theyve got.Still, Thornton and Marleau are certainly not the players they once were.Thornton is on pace for a 30-point dropoff from last seasons 82-point campaign and his lowest point total in a full season since he was a teenager in Boston. He hasnt scored in 17 straight games after finishing with 19 goals last season.Marleau is only slightly off-pace for his 14th 20-goal season, but hes also on track for a career-low 31 points.And yet the Sharks are undeniably a better team when either player is on the ice. San Jose generates the lions share of scoring chances when Thornton and Marleau are out there at even-strength.Both remain weapons on the power play, too.Both are also unrestricted free agents with uncertain futures at seasons end. Asked last March about playing as long as 44-year-old Jaromir Jagr, Thornton responded: If I feel good Id love to play that long, but right now its hard to say if I could.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The latest on the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro (all times local):12:05 a. Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys .m.MEDAL ALERT: China rallied from one set down to defeat the upstart Serbians for gold in womens volleyball at the Rio Games.China took a 23-22 lead in the fourth set Saturday night when Ting Zhus kill sent Maja Ognjenovic to the floor with a hard ball to the face, and the match was over shortly thereafter. Lang Ping raised both arms in the air and Fangxu Yang sprinted over to embrace her. Many more hugs followed.The 19-25, 25-17, 25-22, 25-23 win means Chinas coach Jenny Lang Ping becomes the first person to win volleyball gold as a coach and player. Lang Ping captured an Olympic title with the 1984 Chinese national team in Los Angeles then later spent a four-year stint coaching the Americans.Spains Susana Rodriguez and Patricia Rolf of the U.S. made the first all-female referee tandem for a gold-medal match.---12:05 a.m.Caster Semenya won the Olympic title in the 800 meters Saturday with no one close to challenging her, a result that will only stoke the complex debate over whether women with much higher levels of testosterone than normal should be allowed to compete unchecked.Semenya of South Africa won her first Olympic gold in a personal-best of 1 minute, 55.28 seconds, a national record and one of the top 20 times ever in the two-lap race.Burundis Francine Niyonsaba took silver, with Kenyas Margaret Wambui collecting the bronze for an all-African podium.Semenyas breakthrough world title seven years ago pushed the IAAF to introduce rules limiting testosterone in female athletes. Semenya is believed to be one of several female athletes to compete at the Rio Olympics with very high testosterone -- caused by a condition called hyperandrogenism.But under a legal challenge, the IAAF was forced to drop the testosterone-limiting rules last year.---11:25 p.m.REINSTATED: American runner Paul Chelimo has been reinstated and will get his Olympic silver medal in the mens 5,000-meter race after all.Chelimo finished second in Saturday night but was later disqualified for a lane infringement.

Cheap MLB Jerseys Free Shipping . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged. http://www.wholesalemlbjerseys.us/ . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. LOS ANGELES -- Abner Mares had already won three world titles in as many weight divisions, but he was solely focused on the task at hand -- winning a fourth belt and his second at featherweight.Coming off a 16-month layoff because of two fight postponements, and with trainer Robert Garcia in his corner for the first time, Mares out-boxed the hard-charging Jesus Cuellar over the second half of their fight. Mares knocked down Cuellar in the 11th round to win a well-deserved split decision and a secondary title Saturday night at the Galen Center on the USC campus.With most of the 5,680 spectators cheering him on, Mares rebounded from a disappointing decision loss to Leo Santa Cruz for a vacant featherweight title in August 2015.Two judges scored the fight for Mares, 117-110 and 116-111, and one judge scored the fight for Cuellar, 115-112. ESPN.com scored it 116-111 for Mares.I never doubted myself, Mares said. All during the layoff, I worked with Robert the entire year, and I knew I could beat Cuellar. We had a great game plan. I fought smart tonight. In the last fight, I did not fight a smart fight.I am so glad to be back and to be able to be called to a world champion again. People wrote me off, but I never wrote myself off. In hindsight, having the time to work with Robert proved to be effective.Garcia was quite proud of his student.We spent all this time working on Cuellar because we knew even after the delay in June that it would be Cuellar as the next opponent, Garcia, who used to train Cuellar, said. The time I had work with Abner showed tonight.The fight was originally scheduled for June 25 in Brooklyn, New York, but was called off because Mares, who had successful surgery to repair a detached retina in his left eye in 2008, failed his pre-fight eye exam. The New York State Athletic Commission would not license him because his uncorrected vision did not meet the states minimum standard, but he later passed the California State Athletic Commissions test, and the fight was rescheduled.I think Abner fought a very disciplined fight from the beginning to the end, said Ringstar Sports promoter Richard Schaefer, who put on his first card in the 2? years since he left Golden Boy Promotions as CEO after a fallout with co-founder Oscar De La Hoya. Sometimes Abner is a bit too brave for his own good, but he showed all his skills.They opened the fight as most expected, marching toward each other and going to battle immediately. It might not have been the best strategy for Mares against the more compact and stronger Cuellar, a southpaw, who was extremely aggressive.There were many rough exchanges in the fan-friendly fight, but Cuellar, who was making his third title defense, appeared to get the better of Mares (30-2-1, 15 KOs), whose chin has been doubted by many since he suffered a first-round kknockout loss in a big upset that cost him his featherweight world title against Jhonny Gonzalez in 2013. Discount Baseball Jerseys. But as the fight went on, Mares, 31, began to box more and slug less against the slower, one-dimensional Cuellar (28-2, 21 KOs) as the crowd chanted Mares! Mares! from time to time.Even though Mares was looking to box, he got Cuellars attention late in the ninth round, when he stopped him in his tracks with a booming overhand right and then caught him with a punch after the bell ended the round, which elicited a warning from referee Jack Reiss.In the 11th round, out of nowhere, Mares landed a hard right hand on Cuellars chin to knock him down as the crowd went wild.I shouldnt have gone down, Cuellar said through a translator. Abner is a great boxer. It was his speed [that was the problem]. My game plan worked, but I guess it wasnt good enough. He never hurt me, and the crowd never affected me. I definitely want a rematch.Mares punished Cuellar, 29, of Argentina, for a stretch after the knockdown, pounding him with body shots and right hands along the ropes. Reiss looked in closely, and the crowd began to chant Mexico! Mexico!Mares, clearly feeling in control, played to the crowd in the final minute, raising his arm in victory and then nailing Cuellar.Cuellar was a little flat, said Freddie Roach, his trainer. Abner had a good strategy. He moved and he held and it worked. Abner was a better man tonight.It was a big win for Mares, but the fight was also a victory for Garcia, who reveled in defeating Roach, a Hall of Famer.People doubted Abner, and they doubted me, Garcia said. People always said Freddie is better than me, and tonight I proved them wrong.Roach had beaten Garcia in two major fights with Manny Pacquiao, against Antonio Margarito and Brandon Rios.Im disappointed, Roach said. Cuellar and I trained really well together. I didnt deliver and Garcia did, and thats the bottom line.With the win in hand, Mares figures to be in line for major fights with other stars of the division, including titleholders Carl Frampton, Gary Russell Jr. and Lee Selby, all of whom share adviser Al Haymon. On Jan. 28, in Las Vegas, Frampton will fight Santa Cruz in a rematch of Framptons decision win in their July 30 fight of the year candidate.I want the winner of the Frampton-Santa Cruz fight as soon as possible, Mares said.If Schaefer gets his way, one of those fights will be put together soon.Abner is on top of the featherweight division and is ready for anyone, and there are great fights there, Schaefer said. The rematch with Leo or the winner of Frampton-Santa Cruz II. Great fights. Imagine a fight with Gary Russell? Fantastic fight. The door is wide open.

NORTON, Mass. Nike Roshe Sale Cheap . -- Three holes into the Deutsche Bank Championship, Rory McIlroy had to make a 15-foot putt just to escape with triple bogey.He already was 4-over-par and had every reason to believe this tournament was headed for an outcome that was becoming far too familiar for a player of his class. But there was one difference.His head didnt drop. His shoulders didnt sag.McIlroy went from a miserable start to a memorable finish, closing with a 6-under 65 on Monday to make up a six-shot deficit and win the Deutsche Bank Championship for his 20th career title around the world.Its just incredible, this game, how quickly things can change, McIlroy said after his two-shot victory over Paul Casey. Its been a great lesson for me this week not to get down on myself, to stay patient. After three holes Friday, there was so much going through my head, and none of those things involved sitting beside a trophy.Not just a trophy, but a belt, too.Deutsche Bank gave him the blue belt with a large silver buckle when McIlroy won four years ago, and because this was the last year it is sponsoring the tournament, the company wanted him to keep it.World heavyweight title, McIlroy said of the belt.Not quite, but certainly a step in that direction.A new putter, a new putting coach, and suddenly he looks like the McIlroy of old. It was his first PGA Tour victory of the year and moved him to No. 4 in the FedEx Cup, all but assuring him a clear shot at the $10 million bonus when he gets to the Tour Championship at the end of the month.In a strengthening wind from Hermine that penalized the slightest misses at the TPC Boston, McIlroy closed out the front nine with three straight birdies to take the lead for the first time, went ahead to stay with a 20-foot birdie on the 12th hole and left no doubt with a 3-wood into the wind and over the hazard on the par-5 18th hole that set up a birdie from the bunker.Casey, who started the final round with a three-shot lead in his bid for his first PGA Tour victory since 2009, closed with a 73. He had a 60-foot eagle putt on the final hole that would have forced a playoff. It went 8 feet by and he missed the meaningless birdie putt.Wow, very impressive. Yeah, thats a might round of golf, Casey said of McIlroys finish. I struggled a little bit from the get-go and its hard to regain rhythm and make your birdies if you started out that way, so I found it incredibly difficult. I battled well, did a lot of things brilliantly all week, but obviously frustrated.The only consolation for Casey was that his runner-up finish moved him from No. 59 to No. 10 in the FedEx Cup, assuring a spot in the Tour Championship for the first time since 2010. PGA champion Jimmy Walker closed with a 70 to finish third.The top 70 advance to the BMW Championship, which starts Thursday at Crooked Stick in Indiana. Among those who moved into the top 70 was David Hearn of Canada, who came into the week at No. 92. Hearn closed with a 70 and tied for eighth.McIlroy, who finished at 15-under 269, moves back to No. 3 in the world.The 27-year-old from Northern Ireland fell out of the Big 3 conversation earlier this year when Dustin Johnson won the U.S. Open, Henrik Stenson won the British Open and McIlroy kept sliding, largely because of his putting. His only victory was the Irish Open in May, and when he missed the cut in the PGA Championship, he sought out popular British putting coach Phil Kenyon. McIlroy also switched putters last week at Bethpage Black, though he was at the bottom of the pack in putting.Not this week.He didnt need to make everything in the final round, with his driving and short game setting up three early birdies. But he made an 18-foot birdie on the par-3 eighth, and followed that with a 10-footer on the ninth to make the turn in 31.As the wind picked up, no one could stay with him.I wasnt getting impatient. I wasnt searching, McIlroy said. I know that I hadnt won on the PGA Tour in a while, but over the past 12 months, Ive still had three wins worldwide. ... I knew my game was in good shape, I just needed to do something with the putting. I found something. I still need to keep going with it. Its definitely not the finished article, but its a big step in the right direction. Roshes On Sale .

Will Genia and Quade Cooper have hit the training paddock at Ballymore, adding fuel to speculation of a return to Queensland Reds.That certainly looks to be the case for Cooper at least, who must be signed to an Australian Super Rugby franchise to be available for the Rugby Championship which kicks off in August.As Cooper hasnt played the required 60 Tests that would make him eligible regardless of current club commitments, he must secure a deal with an Australian franchise before the tournament begins.He recently confirmed he wouldnt be taking up the second year of his contract with French club Toulon, further giving rise to talk of a return to Ballymore or even a rumoured move to Melbourne Rebels.Genia meanwhile, has played 66 Test for the Wallabies.

PITTSBURGH -- Lawrence Timmons leapt into the air to snag an Eli Manning pass and Pittsburgh Steelers teammate James Harrison felt like he was in the middle of a flashback. Cheap Adias NHL Jerseys Free Shipping .For a moment it was the 2009 Super Bowl all over again, the one where Harrisons 100-yard interception return for a touchdown on the final play of the first half helped the Steelers to a victory over Arizona and a sixth Lombardi Trophy.Running after Timmons as Timmons raced down the left half in the second quarter against the New York Giants on Sunday, Harrison felt a twinge of deja vu before the reality set in.I actually thought he was going to make it until I saw I was catching up with him and then I thought he wasnt going to make it, Harrison said with a laugh.Hey, neither of them are kids anymore. The 30-year-old Timmons was eventually pushed out by New York running back Rashad Jennings after a 58-yard return . Three plays later, Ben Roethlisberger found Antonio Brown in the back of the end zone for a touchdown to give Pittsburgh an 11-point lead and the defense all the wiggle room it would need to end the Giants six-game winning streak with a clinical 24-14 victory .(The interception) was the biggest play to that point, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. But, you know, youre going to have big plays in big moments as we get into December football. Thats what its about. Its about making those signature plays this time of year to get you out of the stadium. And that was a big one.The type Pittsburghs rapidly improving defense is starting to make with regularity. Pushovers during a humbling four-game slide that took the swagger out of their 4-1 start, the Steelers are starting to do the pushing while ripping off decisive victories over Cleveland, Indianapolis and New York. Pittsburgh has given up just 30 points over its last 12 quarters -- or five less than Dallas managed in a thrilling victory over the Steelers last month -- and shown the kind of tenacity it lacked early in the season.While a soft spot in the schedule that included a trip to the winless Browns and the Andrew Luck-less Colts helped, so has the maturation of rookies Sean Davis, Artie Burns and Javon Hargrave and a pass rush revitalized by Harrison.The 38-year-old has five sacks in Pittsburghs last five games and even when hes not getting to the quarterback, hes making an impact. He bulled his way past New Yorks Ereck Flowers on Sunday with Manning trying to throw out his own end zone, forcing Flowers to grab hold of Harrisons No. 92 jersey . The ensuing flag resulted in a safety that provided Pittsburgh an early momentum boost it never really relinquished.It was just the first in a series of stands by the Steelers. In addition to the safety and Simmons pick, the Steelers stopped the Giants on downs early in the third quarter to briefly preserve at two-touchdown lead and Davis collected the first interception of his career when the second-round pick stepped in front of a fourth-down heave by Manning in the final quarter.While the safety allowed simply knocking the pass down would have been the smarter play, he didnt exactly feel the need to apologize.See ball, get ball, Davis said. Maybe next time (Ill knock it down). I had to get my first one. I wasnt going to drop that one.It was simply the latest step in Davis evolution. He made a couple of key stops in the red zone against Indianapolis and is becoming an increasingly vital part of a secondary starting to play with some menace. Burns and Ross Cockrell kept Odell Beckham Jr. largely in check while the outcome was still in the balance, and Timmons pick was as much about defensive coordinator Keith Butlers scheme as it was Timmons raw ability.We kind of confused Eli, inside linebacker Ryan Shazier said. He thought we were in one thing and we were in another.Effectively disguising things against Clevelands ever rotating stable of quarterbacks and Indianapolis backup Scott Tolzien is one thing. Doing it against a two-time Super Bowl champion is another.I think its about the cohesion and the guys are gaining rhythm in that way, in terms of not only knowing what theyre doing, but knowing whats going on around them, Tomlin said. I think that allows them to play harder and faster. And thats what we need.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale NHL Jerseys China . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Dusty Hannahs hasnt experienced all that many shooting slumps in his life, but the Arkansas guard might just have found the answer to his early season shooting struggles by not starting.For a second straight game, the Razorbacks sharp-shooter came off the bench on Tuesday night -- scoring 17 points in 17 minutes as Arkansas (7-1) rallied from a halftime deficit for an 84-72 win over Houston.Hannahs was 6 of 11 from the field and has now hit 5 of 10 3-pointers in his last two games, coming after he was held without a 3-pointer in the two games before that. After leading Arkansas in scoring last season, the senior is now embracing whatever role Razorbacks coach Mike Anderson gives him.I just tried to stop thinking about (missing shots), even though it was impossible to stop thinking about it because I was just watching so many misses happen, Hannahs said. ... I was relaxed the last game and relaxed this game, and I think its smooth sailing from here on, hopefully.Hannahs had plenty of help as Arkansas won its fourth straight game, with first-year junior Daryl Macon adding 17 points on 5-of-9 shooting. Moses Kingsley added 14 points and eight rebounds, while Dustin Thomas finished with 11 points as the Razorbacks shot 59.3 percent (16 of 27) in the second half after trailing 35-34 at halftime.But it was Hannahs who provided the biggest spark, particularly in the first half when he scored 10 points in nine minutes.Look how efficient he is, Anderson said. ... I think the key is getting playing time. Like I said, hes still a starter in my mind.Rob Gray scored 22 points to lead the Cougars (6-2), whose two losses this season have both come on the road against Southeastern Conference opponents. Damyean Dotson had 15 points and 10 rebounds, while Galen Robinson had 14 points and Wes Vanbeck scored 10.Arkansas entered having won seven of its last eight games against its former Southwest Conference rival Cougars, who were making their first visit to Fayetteville since 1991.The two teeams also came in averaging more than 84 points per game, though Houston struggled early while falling behind by as many as 14 points in the first half. Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic. The Cougars rallied, however, to take a 35-34 halftime lead -- with 32 of those points coming from the backcourt quartet of Dotson, Robinson, Gray and Vanbeck.The four finished with a combined 61 points, but it wasnt enough to overcome Arkansas hot second-half shooting.We still had a lead in the second half, Houston coach Kelvin Sampson said. ... This is a game we could have won, but youve got to play a little bit better defense and get a little more production out of our bigs in a game like this.BIG PICTUREHouston: The Cougars had the guards to run with the Razorbacks, but they had no answers off their bench -- which was outscored 34-14. Houston entered averaging 85.1 points, but it shot only 40 percent (14 of 35) in the second half.Arkansas: The Razorbacks failed in their first true test of the season, falling 87-71 at Minnesota on Nov. 22. On Tuesday, they played like the team coach Mike Anderson had in mind when he signed guards Macon and Jaylen Barford from junior college -- with an eye on immediately turning around following a 16-16 season. While Barford struggled with only two points, Macon was in control throughout, a positive sign for a team intent on returning to the NCAA Tournament after missing it last season.MISSING DAVISDevin Davis, averaging 12.7 points and 7.4 rebounds per game, played only three minutes for Houston and was scoreless after cutting two fingers on his right hand early in the game. The 6-foot-7 junior needed six stitches to stop the bleeding, and Sampson was forced to play a smaller lineup without him.UP NEXTHouston begins a four-game stretch at home by hosting Rhode Island on Saturday.The Razorbacks wrap up five straight games at home when they host North Florida on Saturday.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Since coming over in a trade from Philadelphia, Jerami Grant has become Oklahoma Citys version of a Swiss army knife. Cheap Jerseys From China . No matter what the job, the 6-foot-9, 210-pound Grant has the tools to handle it.This was evident Saturday night during the Thunders 114-101 victory over the Phoenix Suns. Grant knew he would be coming off the bench, but he had no idea at what position it would be until coach Billy Donovan told him as he went into the game.Its fine, Grant said. You always have to be ready. You always have to be ready for whatever comes at you. Especially being in the position Im in, being able to play different positions, you always have to be ready.Against the Suns, he ended the night with eight points, five rebounds and a plus/minus of plus-11. That was tied for the second-highest on the team.Grant has lined up as center, power forward, small forward and even some shooting guard. It takes a lot homework and study to make sure he has his positions down.You have to know everybodys tendencies, regardless of who is on the court, Grant said. I think everybody should know everybodys tendencies. I watch a ton of basketball so I kind of know most peoples tendencies in the league already. I watch a lot of film with the coaches and go through our scouting report.The Thunder will need Grant in the same frame of mind Monday night, when they host Paul Millsap and the Atlanta Hawks (13-14) at 7 p.m. in the Chesapeake Energy ArenaMillsap is one of the more versatile power forwards in the NBA. He can score on the low block and also step out and hit 15-foot jumpers with consistency. He leads the Hawks with an average of 17 points is second in rebounds (eight) and assists (3.7).Oklahoma City won the first matchup with the Hawks in Atlanta. They are expecting an even tougher test this time around, especially with the uncertainty of the injured Victor Oladipo playing.They are a physical team Grant said. I know they are going to come back and try and get us back.Atlanta enters the contest coming off a loss to Charlotte Saturday. After the game, center Dwight Howard and point guard Dennis Schroder went directly to the practice court to hash out missed opportunities, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Schroder had six assists, but none led to points for Howard.In his first season in Atlanta, Howard is posting solid numbers at 14.2 points and 13 boards a game. Yet, the Hawks find themselves hanging around .500 and havent been able to break through yet.Its frustrating. Were all competitive, Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer told Peachtreehoops. We want to win. Id say frustrated. Our guys are competing, guys are trying to make plays.As with every team that comes into Oklahoma City, slowing down Russell Westbrook will have to be at the top of the list of things to do for the Hawks. But Westbrook showed with his career high 22 assists and 13th triple-double of the season on Saturday that hes not doing it alone. That is also evident on defensively.When we defend we put ourselves in position to win games. That has to be our identity, Westbrook said. When we defend at a high level we usually have a good chance of winning the game.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Canucks coach Willie Desjardins knows this formula for success cant be sustained. Discount Vans Shoes . Its making a fun little ride, though.Henrik Sedin scored 1:40 into overtime after Bo Horvat tied it late in the third period, lifting Vancouver over the St. Louis Blues 2-1 on Tuesday night.Horvat scored with 2:55 left in regulation, helping Vancouver to its third consecutive comeback win to start the season.

We believed if we stayed with it something would go in and it finally did, and overtime can always go either way.Vancouver has won twice in overtime and once in a shootout to start the season.When you know you are able to come back it just brings a calmness to the team, Henrik Sedin said. Even being down against a really good team tonight, we are confident we are going to get chances and come back and thats a huge difference.The Blues took the lead at 10:23 of the second after Allen stopped Henrik Sedins initial shot and then the rebound on a flurry in front. St. Louis broke the other way on a 2-on-1, with Tarasenko ripping his fourth of the season shortside on Markstrom.You move on, said Blues coach Ken Hitchcock, whose team was looking to win four straight to open a season for just the second time in franchise history. Getting points on the road is key.The Canucks had a number of excellent chances leading up to the goal, with both Markus Granlund and Horvat hitting the post before Allen stopped Daniel Sedin from the slot.Vancouvers power play, now scoreless on 10 opportunities to start the season, had a chance midway through the third, but could only muster a single shot from the point that Allen handled with ease.St. Louis then hit the post on a partial breakaway off the stick of Patrik Berglund, and the Blues forward crashed into Markstrom, who made a great back-to-back saves on Nail Yakupov and Paul Stastny from in close moments later.Markstrom was expected to get the night off after winning his season debut, a 4-3 overtime triumph against Carolina on Sunday, but No. 1 goalie Ryan Miller arrived at Rogers Arena on Tuesday morning feeling a little tight, according to Desjardins.That thrust Markstrom back into the crease and forced the club to dress University of British Columbia goalie Matt Hewitt as an emergency backup because it couldnt get another netminder from within the organization to Vancouver in time for the game.The Canucks looked to have taken the lead with 6:10 left in the opening period on Luca Sbisas first of the season, but the goal was waved off after video review because of a distinct kicking motion by the Vancouver defenseman on a play that resulted in a St. Louis penalty for hooking.Game notes Hewitt, a native of nearby New Westminster, played three seasons with the WHLs Regina Pats before continuing his career in university hockey. ...
