The Canadian tennis players first full season on the WTA Tour was a strong one. She has risen to No. 32 in the world rankings and will likely be seeded at the first Grand Slam event of the 2014 season. Jonathan Allen Womens Jersey . His actions are much louder on the Fenway Park mound. De La Rosa had another strong home start, going seven solid innings to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 2-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night.IRVING, Texas - Jason Garrett never hesitated with the biggest decision in his first playoff game as a head coach.One might say the usually stoic, Princeton-educated leader of the Dallas Cowboys went all riverboat gambler — going for it on fourth-and-6 near midfield when the safer play would have been to punt and hope to get the ball back.The Cowboys converted on Tony Romos 21-yard pass to Jason Witten with 6 minutes remaining and later scored the go-ahead touchdown in a 24-20 wild-card win over Detroit. Perhaps this is the key — it was Dallas first playoff game in five years.What kept going through my mind was, When you get a chance to go play at the Masters, you dont lay up. You go after it a little bit, Garrett said after a win that sent the Cowboys (13-4) to Green Bay (12-4) for a division game Sunday. And again, a lot of confidence in the guys to go out and execute it. They play football better than I swing a golf club.Theres another key. The tools Dallas has on offence are a lot more potent than a defence that is surviving mostly on low-budget free agents, castoffs and young, generally lower-round draft picks.Dallas had NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray running behind a line with three first-round picks from the past four years. Romo is the first $100 million player in the history of the proud franchise, and left tackle Tyron Smith joined him when he signed a new deal during training camp.Garrett gambled on that investment earlier against the Lions, with Murray scoring on a 1-yard fourth-down plunge late in the third quarter when the Cowboys were behind 20-7.The risky moves werent totally out of character, either. Twice in a span of five plays in a scoreless game at Chicago, Garrett went for it on fourth-and-1 in field-goal range. Murray got 4 yards the first time, and the second was another 1-yard scoring plunge. Dallas won 41-28.II believe in our guys, our ability to control the line of scrimmage in some fourth-and-short situations, to win the line of scrimmage and to make those first downs, Garrett said. Ryan Anderson Jersey. The fourth-and-6 really as much as anything was just a matter of saying, Hey, who knows what happens if we punt this ball away.For years, Romo has carried the reputation of a gambler who drew the ire of Dallas fans fed up with late-game interceptions that cost the Cowboys games. So yes, hes one to lobby Garrett in a lot of fourth-down situations. He didnt have to say a word Sunday.I give credit to coach Garrett for making that call and going to try to win the football game at that point, Romo said. It shows that he believes in us. I think that he thinks in that situation he wants us on the field to have a chance to win a playoff game.And thats where the big gamble was the safest — Romo to Witten, the tight end who has caught more passes than anyone from the quarterback who has surpassed Troy Aikman as the franchise passing leader in touchdowns and yards.Witten ran straight up the field, got open by faking to his right and turning back to his left. The ball was there in plenty of time for him to pick up another 10 yards after the catch. Romo put the Cowboys ahead with an 8-yard scoring toss to Terrance Williams, his second TD of the game.Tony and I have done that for a long time, said Witten, who recently joined Tony Gonzalez as the only NFL tight ends with 11 straight 700-yard seasons. It was a gutsy call by coach Garrett. He has the confidence to be able to go for it, and for Tony to give me that look and know that I was going to win, turn inside.Kind of makes it sound like it wasnt a gamble at all.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

DENVER -- The Denver Nuggets defense was absent for most of the night. Tanoh Kpassagnon Chiefs Jersey . They got a stop with the game on the line and sent Chicago to another loss in Colorado.Rookie Jamal Murray scored a season-high 24 points, Will Barton hit two free throws with 9.5 seconds left and the Nuggets beat the Bulls 110-107 on Tuesday night.It was Denvers 10th straight home win over the Bulls and its 16th in the last 17 meetings at Pepsi Center.The Nuggets survived a 35-point, eight-rebound night from Jimmy Butler to keep Chicago winless in Denver since Feb. 8, 2006. Dwyane Wade had 22 points after sitting out Sundays game against the Lakers.Butler insisted the streak wasnt weighing on the teams mind.Its a basketball court with two rims, two backboards and a ball, he said. At the end of the day put the ball in the basket, do everything you can do in every other city and win the game.Chicago had a chance to end the streak but with the game tied Barton was fouled by Wade on a drive to the basket, and he hit two free throws left to give Denver a 109-107 lead.We are going to put the ball in Will Bartons hands, let him attack downhill, Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. If he draws a crowd, let him get the ball to Murray, who had been shooting the ball lights out, on the back side to make a shot.The Bulls called timeout and Fred Hoiberg drew up a play for Butler, but Denver shut it down.Kenneth Faried was standing in the paint so I didnt have nowhere to go, Butler said.Wade got the ball to Isaiah Cannon, coming around the defense but shot an airball on a 3-point attempt and the Nuggets got the ball.We got a shot from a very good 3-point shooter. Were fine with it, Wade said. We had a chance to come in and get one and we didnt.The Bulls were in control early but the Nuggets used a 22-0 run at the start of the second quarter to take a 41-31 lead. Murray had 15 of his 17 first half points in the period and Wilson Chandler scored 12 of his 16 in the second quarter.It just takes one shot to have confidence, Murray said. It doesnt take me long to get hot. I think every shot is going in. If I miss I dont worry about it.TIP-INSBulls: Butler was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week after averaging 27.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 3.8 assists in four games. He scored a season-high 40 Sunday. ... Michael Carter-Williams is still out with a left knee bone bruise and left wrist sprain. ... Doug McDermott (concussion protocol) missed his fifth game.Nuggets: Mike Miller is away from the team for family reasons. He is expected to rejoin the team later in the week.ALWAYS THE BRIDESMAIDThe Nuggets courted Wade as a free agent this summer but he ultimately chose his hometown Bulls. He came away impressed with his meeting with Denver.Those guys, I was sold on them, Wade said. They made it a lot tougher than people think.Even though he didnt sign with the Nuggets, they felt good about the process.To have a chance to sit down with a first-ballot Hall of Famer who was giving us serious considerations showed our fans of the positive vibes about this team, around the NBA, Malone said.RESERVE CLAUSEThe Nuggets bench scored 39 of their 41 points in the second quarter and outscored the Bulls reserves 61-13 for the game. Three of Denvers double-digit scorers came off the bench.Our bench was phenomenal tonight, Malone said.UP NEXTBulls: Finish up their six-game road trip Friday in Philadelphia. It is tied for their longest trip of the season.Nuggets: At Utah on Wednesday Patrick Mahomes II Jersey .C. -- Manny Malhotra had two goals and an assist, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. Kareem Hunt Jersey . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. http://www.prochiefsauthentic.com/Youth-Kareem-Hunt-Elite-Jersey/ . -- Whether Jeremy Hill deserves a prominent role in LSUs offence this early in the season is a matter for debate.Friday will mark six months since Liverpool appointed Jurgen Klopp but the club find themselves down in ninth in the Premier League table. Even so, the German coach has provided enough glimpses to give supporters hope for next season, writes Adam Bate… Weve really developed in the last few months, Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports. Thats how it is. Our game has changed.We have a lot of possession. We spend a lot of time in dangerous zones on the pitch. We create chances. We dont score enough goals and we concede too many goals, thats the truth. But weve become more and more stable. Given that Klopp was appointed in October and has since been expected to work with another managers players, stable is what Liverpool supporters will settle for this season - as long as it comes with the promise of improvement. There were further signs of that improvement in Saturdays 1-1 draw against Tottenham at Anfield.Of course, Mauricio Pochettinos Spurs side are seen as a template for just about every team in the Premier League right now. Certainly, Liverpool are looking to adopt a pressing game of their own under Klopp. That much was evident in the reverse fixture - Klopps first in charge of Liverpool - when the Reds became the first team to outrun Tottenham this term. Sprint stars Philippe Coutinho, Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana each made more than 70 sprints against Tottenham on Saturday. In running more than 115 kilometres at Anfield on Saturday, Klopps team have also become the first to manage that feat both home and away this year. The players produced 600 sprints to Spurs 539 too, but pressing is far more than mere running. Its an organised and coherent tactic in order to control the game and disrupt the opponent.Naturally, that requires time on the training ground - something Klopp has been denied due to the cycle of matches and recovery that Liverpool have endured. In reaching the final of the Capital One Cup and playing more games in Europe than any other English team, there have been a barely believable 18 midweek games for Klopps men since his October arrival. Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring for Liverpool against Tottenham It is telling that while Stoke boss Mark Hughes is typical of club managers in bemoaning the international break and its effect on his players, Klopp welcomed it. Most of them played only one game so we are something like refreshed, he said. Usually the international break is not too nice but today its not a problem. So now we are back and recharged.We saw some evidence of the pressing against Tottenham - the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana forcing the visitors into errors in their own half on a regular basis. Unfortunately, despite Klopps insistence that his players are fresh, they are playing in patches and struggling to press home the advantage in games. Reds fading? Liverpool have surrendered 17 points from winning positions this season. Harry Kanes equaliser means Liverpool have now dropped more points - 17 of them - from winning positions than any other team in the Premier League. In the previous game, a 3-2 defeat at Southampton, his side squandered a two-goal lead. Its clear that this is little more than a work in progress for now.That point is further highlighted by the fact that Klopp has picked up fewer points from his 22 Premier League games than Rodgers diid in his final 22 games at the helm. Kareem Hunt Chiefs Jersey. Liverpool are a team still failing to take their chances. Only Tottenham and Manchester City have had as many shots as them this season, and yet they are only the divisions eighth-highest scorers. Premier League 2015/16 Team Shots Tottenham 548 Man City 533 Liverpool 481 Arsenal 468 We have to be ruthless and take chances, Reds midfielder James Milner said afterwards. Were getting the style the manager wants but we have not got the consistency. Whats helped Klopp is that the squads best moments have come in big games. They have beaten Leicester, Manchester City and Manchester United at Anfield since Christmas.There can be seen as pointers to the potential of Klopps methods. Hes improved Dejan Lovren and improved Emre Can, said Jamie Carragher. I think hes improved Lallana too. The ex-Liverpool defender is among those insisting that Klopp can only be properly judged once hes had a pre-season and a summer transfer window in which to mould the side. Jurgen Klopp says his Liverpool side are learning to become winners To be a winner, you have to learn, insisted Klopp afterwards. You get a few knocks - we have had a few this season - but we are on the right track. If you only look at results you will say something is wrong, but there is not a lot wrong, we can build on this.For now, hints and glimpses are what we are dealing in. If Klopp can get Liverpool to produce some more of them against the club at which he made his name, Borussia Dortmund, in Thursdays Europa League quarter-final first-leg, then the current optimism could develop into something rather more significant than stable next season.

DUMFRIES -- Canada downed Sweden 7-2 in six ends to win the mens title Wednesday at the World Senior Curling Championships. Brad Kaaya Youth Jersey . Skip Wayne Tallon and his team of fourth Mike Kennedy, second Mike Flannery and lead Wade Blanchard opened with two points in the first end, and scored another two points in the third for a 4-1 lead. A pair of steals, for one in the fourth end and two in the fifth, gave Canada a daunting 7-1 lead. The Swedes could only score one point in the sixth end, and they conceded the game and the title. "Im just lost for words. Really ecstatic about it," Tallon said. "Im really happy at how the boys played, they played really hard, so it feels good. "It makes it even that much more special having been involved in this championship last year (as chair at the 2013 tournament in Fredericton). Last year my responsibility was to ensure everybody had a good time. This year it was to make sure that everyone played well." The Canadian women couldnt make it a sweep, falling 6-5 to Scotland in the womens final. Canada had a 5-4 lead, and last stone advantage, going into the eighth and final end. But Scotland stole two to win when Canadian skip Colleen Pinkney wrecked her last stone on a takeout attempt. "We are very disappointed right now but will be happy in a couple of hours," Pinkney said. "Basically the key was that Scotland had two great last ends and we missed a couple of shots that we couldnt afford." Dumfries also played host to the World Mixed Doubles championship, with Switzerlands Michelle Gribi and Reto Gribi - coached by Canadas Al Moore - claiming gold with an 8-6 win over Swedens Camilla Johansson and Per Noreen, while Spain won its first world-championship medal at any level with Irantzu Garcia and Sergio Vez beating reigning world champs Dorottya Palancsa and Zsolt Kiss of Hungary in the bronze-medal game. Canadas entry of Wayne Tuck and Kim Tuck of Strathroy, Ont., went 7-1 in round-robin play but lost to Austria in the first round of the playoffs to finish ninth overall. Teez Tabor Youth Jersey .

He spent last year with Tampa Bayy and his first seven major league seasons with Cleveland. Teez Tabor Lions Jersey. Hernandez was known as Fausto Carmona for his first six big-league seasons. The Dominican Republic native missed most of the 2012 season after getting arrested on charges of falsifying his identity to obtain a visa.

India women 199 for 6 (Krishnamurthy 71, Vaidya 32*, Nation 2-21) beat West Indies women 184 (Knight 55, Matthews 44, Gayakwad 4-34) by 15 runsScorecard Left-arm spinner Rajeshwari Gayakwads 4 for 34 helped India women defend 199, after Veda Krishnamurthys 71 had helped set it up, as West Indies women were whitewashed 3-0 in the ODI series. Vans Sk8 Hi Black White . The duo had led India to win in a similar pattern in the first ODI as well - Gayakwad had taken a four-for and Krishnamurthy had scored a fifty.This was both teams final ICC Womens Championship game. West Indies, who needed just one win at the start of the series to seal automatic qualification to the World Cup next year, remain in fourth place with 22 points. They now have an outside chance of missing out on automatic qualification, should South Africa whitewash Australia in the three-match series beginning from November 18. India finished the campaign with 19 points, and will have to earn their qualification to the World Cup.Put in to bat, India suffered a top-order wobble as no batsman from the top four went past 25. India were crawling at 52 for 3 in the 21st over before Krishnamurthy salvaged the innings. She first took the score past 100 along with Harmanpreet Kaur in a stand of 51 for the fourth wicket, and then past 150 in the company of debutant Devika Vaidya with whom she put on 57 for the sixth wicket.India managed 39 runs in the last 31 balls, after Krishnamurthy fell for 71 (79b, 10x4) in the 45th over. Vaidya finished unbeaten on 32 off 45, and Jhulan Goswami scored a useful 18 off 16. Chedean Nation, returning to international cricket after seven years, took 2 for 21 from her seven overs.West Indies top order gave them a steady start in their chase. Hayley Matthews (44) put on 49 for the opening stand with Shaquana Quintyne (18) and 20 for the second with Kycia Knight (55), before Gayakwad trapped her in front. West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor and experienced batsman Deandra Dottin scored 14 each, but there were no significant partnerships till Merissa Aguilleira (22) put on 46 with Knight for the sixth wicket.They kept the chase alive, before Aguilleira was run out with West Indies still needing 34 off 32. Gayakwad then removed Knight, followed by Britney Cooper, in the 47th over. She also removed Anisa Mohammed in the 49th in between two run-outs, that saw West Indies lose their last five wickets for just 18 runs. Vans Sk8 Hi Reissue Red .1 million pounds ($61.2 million) on Saturday, giving the beleaguered English Premier League champions a major lift. Vans Sk8 Hi Red . Marincin has played in two NHL games so far this season with two penalty minutes. The 21-year-old has three goals, four assists and a plus-5 rating in 24 games with the American Hockey Leagues Oklahoma City Barons this season. http://www.vansoldskoolaustralia.com/vans-sk8-hi-australia/vans-sk8-hi-reissue.html . - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. When a defense slips significantly coaches frequently refer to it as slippage.Lately, the Brooklyn Nets have used the term frequently when discussing their many defensive ailments.Practice time has been limited but the Nets will have had two days to see if drills carry over into a game setting Wednesday night when they host the Boston Celtics and attempt to end an ugly four-game losing streak.Were plugging holes right now defensively, leaking in different places, coach Kenny Atkinson said. Were going to have to regroup, get some practice time, get some film time, get our principles back. I keep talking about slippage. Weve slipped.Brooklyn is allowing 113.3 points per game overall but in this skid, the Nets have allowed 126.2 points per game and no fewer than 27 points in the 12 quarters. Besides the points, the Nets allowed opponents to shoot at least 50 percent in three of those games and are among the worst defensive teams in shooting percentage and other areas.Its been consistent for the past four games. Its just different teams, but weve been the same, center Brook Lopez said. A lot of its the same. Its not any one person, glaringly obvious. Its just team-wide, whatever it is. I dont think you can fault our effort or energy. ... Its a team-wide situation we need to figure out.The slippage has resulted in Brooklyn allowing at least 120 points in four straight games for the fifth time in its NBA history. The last occurrence was Jan. 30-Feb. 4, 1990, when the New Jersey Nets allowed an average of 123 points in losses at Phoenix, Denver, Golden State and the Los Angeles Lakers.The Nets also have allowed 120 points or more in five games this season. It is two shy of last years total when the Nets ranked 24th in points allowed per game and 29th in defensive rating and one shy of the 2014-15 total, though three of those games reached overtime.Compounding the sub-par defense is inconsistent offense.While the Nets are among the leaders in possessions (102.2) per game, they have an offensive rating (104.1) that is in the bottom 10th of the league. It is because the Nets are shooting 44 percent overall and 32.5 percent from 3-point rrange, numbers that place them in the bottom third of the league. Vans Old Skool Leather Zip. The latest inconsistency on offense occurred during Sundays 129-109 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Lopez made his first seven shots when the Nets scored 64 points in the first half but Brooklyn shot 26 percent in the second half.Meanwhile, the Celtics have won two in a row after rallying from 15 down for Mondays 99-93 victory at Minnesota.Isaiah Thomas scored 20 points for the 13th time by totaling nine of his 29 in the final five minutes. Al Horford scored 20 points after getting the game-winner Saturday at Detroit and has 38 points since returning from missing nine games with a concussion.The Celtics lost five times in Horfords absence but it gave coach Brad Stevens an opportunity to look at his depth. It was on display Monday when the Celtics received 16 of their 31 bench points in the fourth quarter.Boston scored 17 straight points to open the fourth when reserve Terry Rozier scored eight of his 12 points.When we get in, we got to either pick up where the first team left off or we got to even play harder than that, Rozier said. We had a team meeting not too long ago and thats one of the things we said. When we got in there, we just play hard. A lot of credit goes to Al, too, working hard. Just a lot of things, everything worked in our favor once we played hard.The one negative from Monday was Jae Crowder sitting out the final 16 minutes with left ankle pain. It is the same injury that kept him out for eight games and he might sit out Wednesday. If Crowder sits, Marcus Smart could get the start.Smart averaged 10 points in Crowders place and also was credited for sparking Bostons comeback by calling the team out for lack of effort at the end of the third.Really it all started at the end of the third, Marcus Smart calling out all of us, Horford told reporters.The Celtics took the first meeting on Oct. 26 in Boston when Thomas had 25 points and nine assists in a 122-117 win. Boston has won six of the last nine meetings. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

SANTA CLARA, Calif. Loui Eriksson Jersey . -- Some 5,000 miles from home, the sounds of Youll Never Walk Alone, Liverpool FCs unofficial anthem, billowed from Levis Stadium during warm-ups.Fan support for one of the worlds most popular sports teams was apparent throughout the night while Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino scored and Liverpool beat AC Milan 2-0 in an International Champions Cup exhibition game Saturday night at Levis Stadium.Its all over the world and that shows what a big club it is, Liverpool midfielder James Milner said.Its great to come out all the way to the other side of America and be so far away from home, it shows that these guys are always supporting us.Origi opened the scoring in the 59th minute off an assist from Alberto Moreno.Firmino scored 14 minutes later on a sliding kick off a deflected pass from Sheyl Ojo.Origis goal followed a first half in which Liverpool put heavy pressure on AC Milan. The Reds outshot AC Milan 5-2, had five corner kicks to their opponents one and had the only two blocks in the half.Im pleased with our performance, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said, especially in the first half.We passed and we passed and we passed until we were through. We created chances and we didnt score, of course we need to finish.Origi broke Liverpools scoreless streak of 104 minutes to start the tournament. The Reds were coming off a 1-0 loss to Premier League rival Chelsea FC. Their next game will be against FC Barcelona on Aug. 6 in London.Good performance for the boys, Milner said. I think we dominated most of the game, we looked pretty sharp. Obviously its still preseason and obviously results dont mean too much but it was nice to get win.Milan goalkeeper Gabriel Vasconcelos Ferreira had three saves.Very happy that weve been able to play this tournament with high-level teams, Milan coach Vincenzo Montella said through a translator. Im satisfied with what the players did, they did what was asked of them. Although the outcome was a loss, there are still many positives to take out of this.Milan will play Chelsea FC on Aug. 3 in Minneapolis.The July 22-Aug. 13 exhibition tournament features 17 teams playing on four continents; 10 in the United States and Europe, three in China and four in Australia. Terry OReilly Bruins Jersey . Those lessons were more than enough to overwhelm the Utah Jazz. Lou Williams scored 25 points and the Hawks continued their offensive upswing as they rolled to an easy 118-85 victory over the Jazz on Friday night, winning their third straight and for the fourth time in five games. Cam Neely Jersey . The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. http://www.jerseyhockeybruinsstore.com/authentic-johnny-bucyk-bruins-jersey-sale/ . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. TORONTO -- Before the Cleveland Indians could even consider giving the ball to Andrew Miller, their bullpen faced a daunting task in the very first inning.After Trevor Bauers bloody exit , these remarkable relievers had to stitch together almost an entire game against the Toronto Blue Jays.Four outs apiece for Dan Otero and Jeff Manship. Three for Zach McAllister. Five each for winner Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen.After all that, Cleveland finally turned to Miller, who was overpowering again in closing out a 4-2 victory that moved the Indians within one win of their first pennant since 1997.If anybody has a hiccup, we probably lose, manager Terry Francona said Monday night after his team took a 3-0 lead in the AL Championship Series. They all made pitches against some really good hitters.Jason Kipnis and Mike Napoli homered for the Indians, unbeaten in six playoff games this year. They can complete their second consecutive series sweep on Tuesday.In the bullpens most impressive feat yet this October, six relievers combined for 25 outs and 128 pitches while limiting Toronto to two runs and seven hits. Miller got four outs for the save.The bullpen was unbelievable, Bauer said. Co-MVP to everybody.Indians ace Corey Kluber is scheduled to start Game 4 on short rest after Bauers drone-related finger injury created more upheaval in a rotation thats been short-handed all postseason. Bauer faced four batters before getting pulled when his stitched-up right pinkie began dripping blood.Enter those stingy relievers, who pitched the Indians to a Division Series sweep over Boston and have them on the verge of another. Cleveland is one win from its sixth World Series appearance.The hard-hitting Blue Jays have mustered only three runs in the series and have never led.We felt like we had an opportunity with some of their lower-leverage guys coming out of the bullpen, but theyve got good arms, Toronto outfielder Kevin Pillar said. It makes it tough when youre facing a different guy every inning, every at-bat.Kipnis led off the sixth with a home run to right-center field for a 3-2 edge, and Jose Ramirez added an RBI single. Suddenly, the Indians were just a few outs from being able to turn the game over to Allen and Miller.They appeared in that order, yet another instance in which Francona maneuvered his bullpen unencumbered by rigid roles.It was all hands on deck, Miller said.Allen, who usually closes, entered in the seventh with a runner on and nobody out. A two-out walk to Jose Bautista put the potential tying run on, but Josh Donaldsons liner to left field stayed up long enough for Coco Crisp to make a sliding catch .Miller fanned three of five batters, giving him 20 strikeouts in nine playoff innings this year. The lanky left-hander has allowed five hits over 17 1/3 scoreless innings in his postseasoon career. Milan Lucic Jersey. Tito did a masterful job running that bullpen today, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. They shut us down.Cleveland has won nine straight dating to the regular season.Napoli entered 2 for 18 this postseason and in an 0-for-25 slump against right-handers dating to the regular season. He opened the scoring with an RBI double off righty Marcus Stroman in the first -- Napolis long fly popped out of Bautistas glove before both the ball and Bautista bounced off the right-field wall.Bauer made it through only 21 pitches. Hed been pushed back two days to Game 3 after cutting his finger last week repairing one of the drones he enjoys flying as a hobby. He received 10 stitches and tried to pitch, but couldnt make it far without blood dripping from his hand.Trevor got a little leak, Kipnis said. A couple of us had seen the wound kind of inside and knew it was a possibility of happening. He can deal with the pain, but its getting something like that to close up.

For the second time this week, were here to talk about a teams chances after losing its starting quarterback to a serious injury. Leo Komarov Maple Leafs Jersey . After Tony Romo went down for the Cowboys earlier this weekend, Vikings quarterback?Teddy Bridgewater?suffered a serious knee injury in practice Tuesday. It speaks to the severity of the early reports surrounding the injury that the eventual diagnosis of a season-ending torn ACL and dislocated knee was seen as a lucky break for Minnesota.It was Romo and the 2015 Cowboys who offered a perfect example of how a team can be felled quickly by an injury to their starting passer. Dallas went 12-4 during a banner 2014 campaign and started 2-0 last season, before Romo broke his collarbone. They then went 0-7, won Romos first game back, and after Romo broke his collarbone for a second time, went 1-5 the rest of the way. Theres at least a chance things go pear-shaped in the same way for the Vikings, too.My suspicion, though, is that the Vikings arent this years version of the Cowboys. Its hard to argue that they will be better without their starting quarterback, and I wont claim they will be. But there are reasons to believe the Vikings could be competitive in 2016 and not suffer the fate of last years Cowboys. Lets look at the post-Teddy roster and identify why the Vikings and their fans should still hold out hope:This defense could be really good ... and better than last year.Some might make the case that the Vikings were already great on defense last year by using traditional numbers. Mike Zimmers defense finished the year fifth in points allowed, but some of that comes out in the contextual wash. Minnesota faced only?170 meaningful possessions, the fourth-lowest total in the league, and its defense started its average drive with the fifth-best starting field position in football.As a result, the Vikings finished the season 14th in DVOA, just below the Colts, who arent exactly drawing attention as an up-and-coming defense. In a way, though, finishing 14th is better for their chances of improving on defense this season than finishing fifth, right? Minnesota has been steadily improving under Zimmer, too. After inheriting a defense that finished 27th in DVOA before his arrival in 2013, Zimmers charges finished 23rd as he reshaped the unit before jumping to 14th last season.Its a young defense in a lot of spots, too, even if the numbers are skewed a bit by some older starters. The Football Outsiders Almanac 2016 notes that the average Vikings defender in for a given snap last year was 27.5 years old, which was the fourth-oldest in the league. But those numbers include huge workloads with more than 80 percent of the defensive snaps for defensive end Brian Robison, who was 32 last year, and cornerback Terence Newman, who was 37. Outside linebacker Chad Greenway, also 32 last year, played 58.8 percent of the defensive snaps.Robison and Newman should shift further into defensive rotations this year and lose snaps to a pair of second-year defenders, defensive end Danielle Hunter and 2015 first-round pick Trae Waynes. Hunter, who had six sacks last year, is likely to be the teams starting end across from Everson Griffen by the end of the year. Waynes struggled at times as a rookie, but even future superstar cornerbacks often struggle as rookies. With Waynes and 2016 second-rounder Mackensie Alexander in reserve, the Vikings have options if Newman finally feels the effects of Father Time.Elsewhere, the Vikings have five above-average starters who are all first- or second-round picks from their last five draft classes, paced by star safety Harrison Smith. Smith and versatile linebacker Anthony Barr are already Pro Bowlers, and the other three are each capable of making another leap forward this year. Cornerback Xavier Rhodes has improved dramatically during his time in the league and needs only to cut down on his penalties to justify Pro Bowl consideration. Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd might already be there if he could make it through a 16-game season, and middle linebacker Eric Kendricks shored up the teams perennial weak spot at middle linebacker after taking over as a starter in midseason. These guys are all already good and young enough to have a shot at becoming great.More than anything, theres just so much talent on this defense that there are bound to be guys who make plays on a weekly basis. Griffen had 10.5 sacks last year, which isnt bad by any means, but his 30 quarterback knockdowns suggest that hes likely to improve the sack total in 2016 if he stays healthy. Reserve interior pass-rusher Tom Johnson might be one of the most underrated players in all of football; for just over $2 million, the Vikings got 20 knockdowns out of Johnson last year, as many as the Dolphins got from Ndamukong Suh.Its not a guarantee the Minnesota defense improves in 2016. It was the leagues seventh-healthiest unit per Adjusted Games Lost last season and ranked second in red-zone defense in terms of points allowed per trip inside the 20. Both of those factors are incredibly important and incredibly unlikely to occur on an annual basis. Even if the Vikings do play worse in the red zone and struggle more with injuries, though, theyre deep enough and talented enough on defense that a baseline level of play should get better. At the very least, theres a significant chance the Vikings are a better defense in 2016, which was unlikely for the Cowboys and their fluky league-leading takeaway rate this time last year.Theyre the most run-heavy offense in the league ... and Adrian Peterson is?still here.In one sense, the Vikings needed less out of their quarterback than any other team. They attempted just 454 passes last year, the fewest in all of football and a whopping 117 attempts below the NFL average. All but seven of those passes came from Bridgewater. Only the Rams averaged fewer passing yards per game than Minnesotas 183.0 yards per contest.This is a run-first football team. As I mentioned when writing about Bridgewater earlier this month, the Vikings ran the ball 66.5 percent of the time on first-and-10 when the game was within 14 points. That was the highest rate in football. A league-high 27.2 percent of Bridgewaters passes involved play-action. The Vikings pounded the ball as much as anybody in football and still finished eighth in DVOA, speaking to their rare combination of both volume and efficiency.Its also not crazy to imagine the running game being even better in 2015. They will lose Bridgewater, who has been a surprisingly efficient runner on designed draws and scrambles, and its always risky to believe that Peterson (or any back) will make it through a full 16-game season, as he did in 2015, without missing a week or two with injuries. The Vikings do have a wildly productive backup for Peterson in third-year man Jerick McKinnon, though, and were fourth in rushing DVOA in 2014 while Peterson sat on the exempt list for 15 of 16 games.Instead, the Vikings could be better running the football because of an improved offensive line. Minnesota spent all of 2015 without two starters up front, losing center John Sullivan and right tackle Phil Loadholt to season-ending injuries. Sullivan and Loadholt are gone; Loadholt retired, and Sullivan was released Tuesday. Joe Berger excelled in Sullivans absence at center, and Minnesota imported free agents?Andre Smith and Alex Boone, both of whom have been excellent run blockers when healthy. Minnesota also got a piece of now-forgotten good news when H-back Rhett Ellison returned to practice last week after tearing his patella in January.The Cowboys, meanwhile, couldnt have been as effective in 2015 as they were the previous year. They lost DeMarco Murray, who had produced a career year and stayed healthy for the first time as a pro in 2014. Their five starting offensive linemen started 75 of 80 games together in 2014, while guard Ronald Leary went down with a groin injury in the very first week of the season in 2015. He would have gotten his job back if it werent for the presence of freakish rookie guard Lael Collins, whom the Cowboys were lucky to see fall into undrafted free agency, but the point about the line struggling to be quite as healthy still stands. Dallas also never really had a healthy Dez Bryant in 2015, which dramatically impacted the passing attack, independent of their quarterback situation.The dropoff from Bridgewater to Shaun Hill isnt anywhere near as bad as the dropoff from Romo to Matt Cassel and Brandon Weeden.While Romo threw only 435 passes in 2014, he was incredibly efficient and effective on those passes, leading the league in completion percentage, yards per attempt, passer rating and QBR. His replacements did not threaten to lead the league in anything, at least not anything good. Bryants absence and limited ability didnt help matters, but going from Romos MVP-caliber season to Cassel learning the playbook in midseason is about as big of a swing as youll see at quarterback.Bridgewater and Hill have different styles, and Bridgewater obviously has more long-term upside than a 36-year-old backup, but their level of production as pros hasnt been that different. Since throwing his first professional pass in 2007, Hill has posted a QBR of 45.6. Bridgewater posted a 62.7 figure last year and is at 59.9 so far as a pro. The difference between Romo in 2014 (a QBR of 83.6) and the various Dallas passers in 2015 (39.8) was much larger.Lets put it in context another way. The pro-football-reference.com Index statistics adjust a quarterbacks statistics for the era in which he was performing and scale them so that 100 is league-average. Since Hill threw that first pass in 2007, he has posted an era-adjusted passer rating (Rate+) of 101, right in line with Eli Manning and Jay Cutler. In terms of adjusted net yards per attempt (ANY/A+), which is probably the best single-number quarterback metric using raw statistics, Hill has posted a mark of 98. Thats just below Joe Flacco (99) and good for 29th out of the 47 quarterbacks who have thrown 1,000 passes or more over that timeframe. Hills era-adjusted career numbers arent notably worse than Bridgewaters. In some cases, theyre actually better. Take a look:The problem, of course, is with aging curves. Bridgewater is 23 and was likely to continue improving with a young receiving corps and an improved offensive line. Hill is 36 and has just one season with meaningful action since the end of the 2010 season, when he was mediocre for the 2014 Rams and went 3-7 despite an excellent defense. That was with a porous offensive line and the infamously dull Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator, though, and Hill should have more to work with as the regular in Minnesota this season.Hill might actually fit into Norv Turners scheme.Again, in looking back at the Bridgewater piece from earlier this month, I noted how Turner has really built a scheme around his offenses strengths and weaknesses. His offensive line wasnt great, so Turners running game was built more around timing and misdirection and slowing defenders down with threats of run-pass options from Bridgewater, who did an excellent job of handling the football before giving it to Peterson or attempting a pass.The other notable tendency with the offense has been attacking deep. Bridgewater made excellent throws downfield here and there, but overall as a pro he hasnt been an effective deep passer in terms of efficiency. Turner has also accounted for that in his playcalling and doesnt have Bridgewater throw downfield very often, which is out of character for an offensive coordinator who loved to have Philip Rivers chuck the ball downfield in San Diego.With Bridgewater out of the lineup, Turner will probably need to change his offense again. It will be impossible to rebuild the offense on the fly in the two weeks before the season starts, but with a healthier, more imposing offensive line, it wouldnt be a surprise to see him try to line up and overwhelm teams physically without resorting to the run-pass options. With Bridgewater out of the lineup, Turner might simplify his offense for Hill by removing those concepts from the playbook or going to them less frequently.And it wouldnt be a surprise to see Turner take more shots downfield with Hill in the lineup. The Vikings will still be relying heavily on their running game and play-action, and thats where Turner will want to challenge safeties creeping up to the line of scrimmage with throws to Stefon Diggs and the rest of the Vikings receiving corps. Hill, for what its worth, has been a totally reasonable downfield attacker during his pro career. ESPN credits him for a QBR of 84.3 on throws 20 or more yards downfield as a pro, against a league-average of 84.6 over that same timeframe.QBR tends to reward passers for their deep throws, because theyre so dependent upon quarterback skill. If we use passer rating instead, Hill has posted an 88.6 mark against a league-average of 86.6. Of Hills deep throws, 41.3 percent have been successful against a league-average rate of 41.6 percent. Hes basically been a league-average downfield passer. If age hasnt sapped Hills arm strength, that would be an upgrade for the Vikings, who could also be better at wide receiver this year, thanks to the draft and development.?The idea of being average isnt exciting, but for a team fresh off losing its star passer in a league in which quarterbacks mean everything, maybe it does matter. If Hill is the 35th-best quarterback in the league right now in a vacuum, that would be a very comfortable landing spot, given how far teams can fall when they lose their starting quarterback. The Vikings are a team built wisely upon solid coaching and above-average depth, trusting that its more important to have good pieces up and down the roster than a few stars who have to carry a few scrubs over the line. That philosophy will be tested with Bridgewater on the sideline in 2016, but dont expect what you saw in Dallas last year. Borje Salming Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic .

Aaron Ekblad may be the most mature 18-year-old hockey player on the planet. Tyus Bowser Jersey . "Not only does he have a 30-year-olds physique under his equipment but he also thinks and acts like a 10-year NHL vet," said Dan Stewart, scouting director for the independent scouting service Future Considerations. Ekblad, a two-way, right-shooting defenceman, knows what he wants to be not only in this weeks NHL draft but as a professional. Hed love to go No. 1 and continue to mould himself in the images of Shea Weber, Alex Pietrangelo and Duncan Keith. More than anything, though, the Barrie Colts captain wants to be considered reliable on and off the ice. "I dont do too many things that are going to surprise anyone," Ekblad said at last months scouting combine. "Im going to be the kind of player that you know what youre going to get from me." Steady and dependable doesnt put butts in seats, but Ekblad isnt touting himself as a flashy kind of player. Instead, and more importantly, he has the potential to develop into a franchise cornerstone. Because of that, the Belle River, Ont., native is the front-runner to be the top pick Friday night in Philadelphia, whether the Florida Panthers choose to keep it or trade it. Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray said last week he expected Ekblad to go No. 1 regardless. If that happens, Ekblad would be the first defenceman to be selected with the top pick since Erik Johnson in 2006, and the first Canadian-born blue-liner in that spot since Chris Phillips in 1996. Ekblad knows it has been a "long time" since a defenceman was drafted first. But it would come as no shock to NHL Central Scouting director Dan Marr. "Aaron Ekblad is a hard player to go past in the draft, I think, for any of the teams, and they know that," Marr said at the combine. "There doesnt seem to be a will to take a defenceman high because a lot of times you dont get the quick bang for your buck." Ekblad wants to provide that, just as 2013 No. 4 pick Seth Jones did for the Nashville Predators. "A hundred per cent" he wants to be in the NHL next season, and he told that to all 16 teams that interviewed him. "Thats the way I believe in myself," Ekblad said. "I wouldnt say Im cocky, but Im confident and I believe that if I work hard and I do all the little things and pay attention to details, I can be in that league next year." With that confidence in mind, Ekblad still watched games this past season and recognized the NHL is a hard league to crack and that getting drafted is just a foot in the door. "It means nothing until you prove that youre ready to do it," he said. Scouts believe Ekblad is prepared to prove it. In the six-foot-three, 213-pound prospect, Ross MacLean of ISS Hockey, another independent scouting service, sees someone with skills to insulate himself from making mistakes and the maturity to be able to adjust to the next level. "Hes a kid that I think probably couldve played in the NHL this year, let alone next year," MacLean said. "I think we saw that with Seth Jones, as well, last year. Theyve just been put into positions where theyve been able to acclimatize and get comfortable and confident and develop their skills at the appropriate pace, and theyre ready for the next step." Typically, theres a learning curve for even the best young defencemen before they can become NHL regulars, let alone stars. But a handful from the top 10 of the 2012 draft, including the Toronto Maple Leafs Morgan Rielly, Anaheim Ducks Hampus Lindholm and Columbus Blue Jackets Ryan Murray, played the full 2013-14 season and showed it may not be as steep as it once was. During the season, then-Predators and now Washington Capitals coach Barry Trotz theorized that its because junior hockey has more pro systems designed to help defencemen adapt quicker. Stewart thinks Ekblad can adjust on the fly because of his awareness. After being given the captaincy in Barrie, Ekblad "was trying to do everything," Stewart said, before recognizing his weaknesses and dialling back to what hes good at. "He has shown time and time again that he learns from mistakes," Stewart said. "Ekblad is always thinking and while he does make some mistakes from time to time, he also shows an ability to compensate for any situational deficiencies. Because of his slower feet, while defending speedy forwards attacking the zone, he gives himself a little larger gap than say if he were going up against someone he feels he can easily wedge off the puck. "Its his advanced thinking on the fly and understanding of his position that should benefit him quickly at the next level." Physically, Ekblad is undoubtedly NHL-ready. After earning exceptional status to play in the OHL at the age of 15, he has gone through three junior seasons in Barrie and held his own at the world junior championship. Stewart was impressed with how Ekblad handled pressure situations and defensive responsibilities while playing for Canada at the world juniors. In Barrie, Colts teammate, roommate and best friend Brendan Lemieux — a projected first- or second-round pick in his own right and the son of former NHL agitator Claude Lemieux — saw Ekblad show even more. "Ek really showed that he was willing to stand up and answer the bell, even with his gloves off. I watched him pound a few guys this year," Lemieux said at the combine. "He might not show that physical presence and how big he is and how tough he can be, but hes a tough guy, too. Hes not just a super-skilled big guy, hes a super-skilled big, tough guy." Ekblad is certainly better known for his 23 goals and 30 assists than his three fights, and it was that offence balanced with defensive acumen that earned him OHL defenceman of the year honours. Its hard to be upset about that kind of season, but Ekblad insisted hes not satisfied with what he showed scouts. "Thats kind of the way everyone here should be thinking: I believe I can always be better," he said. "You look back on some games, some shifts and , What if you did this instead of that? I wouldnt say I have any regrets, per se. I think I had a pretty good year. But theres always things you couldve done." --- Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Marlon Humphrey Youth Jersey .

(STATS) -- The pressure of the last two games cant compare to what Sam Houston State now faces. Mattia Perin Italy Jersey . This is the one where its time to prove the doubters wrong.And for the scoreboard operator to be extremely busy.In a clash of the countrys highest-scoring offenses, the Bearkats are the underdogs despite being atop the STATS Top 25 mainly because they must head into a chilly, unfriendly environment Friday night to face James Madison in the FCS quarterfinals.Itll be cold, itll be dark, itll be perfect, Dukes coach Mike Houston said.Sam Houston State (12-0) has long been No. 1 in the polls, steamrolling every opponent during a regular season it capped with a 59-23 rout of Central Arkansas in a de facto Southland Conference title game. Yet, a mostly unimpressive schedule led to only a No. 5 seed for the playoffs, and maybe the selection committee felt somewhat justified after the Bearkats narrowly escaped with a 41-36 win over Chattanooga to open the playoffs.Unlike those last two wins, the Bearkats now wont have the luxury of playing at home in the warmth of Huntsville, Texas. Besides having to go on the road because James Madison (11-1) is the higher seed at No. 4, temperature at kickoff in Harrisonburg, Virginia, should be in the 20s for a prime-time game being played in front of a national TV audience on ESPN2.Its also a big step up competition-wise. The Dukes went 9-0 in CAA Football -- a tougher conference than the Southland -- and suffered their only loss on the road to FBS foe North Carolina.Plus, the Bearkats havent seen an offense that can be anywhere near as potent as theirs -- until now.This is probably without doubt the most in terms of looking in the mirror, said Sam Houston States K.C. Keeler, the Eddie Robinson Award winner as the STATS FCS Coach of the Year. This is gonna be a team we think were playing our equal.Keelers squad leads all of college football with 53.1 points per game, and the only team within five points of that average is the Dukes at 48.3. The over/under for the game is an eye-opening 84 1/2.Sam Houston State has the bigger name at quarterback in Jeremiah Briscoe, a favorite to win the Walter Payton Award after setting an FCS single-season record with 57 touchdown passes. The junior has thrown for 4,459 yards for a Bearkats offense that leads the nation with 570.4 yards per game.He has a very quick release, he has very good accuracy and he has a very, very strong arm, Houston said. I mean, that ball gets there in a hurry. So you get a guy like that surrounded with the weapons that they have, thats why they put up almost arcade-like numbers.The Dukes have a signal-caller who has become nearly as dangerous in Bryan Schor.In his last four full games -- he missed 1 1/2 games last month with a shoulder injury -- Schor has put up Briscoe-like numbers with 17 touchdown passes and one interception while averaging 307 yards through the air. Plus, Schor is more of a dual threat with 522 yards and nine TDs on the ground this season.He and Briscoe are the two best quarterbacks in the country probably, Keeler said. His accuracy is uncanny. His ability to throw the ball away and get himself out of trouble.... Obviously, I think I have the best quarterback in the country, but (Schor) might be a close No. 2. And Im biased because I live with our kid every day.It was actually Schor who was statistically better last week, going 30 of 37 for 371 yards and five TDs as James Madison totaled 567 yards in a 55-22 win over New Hampshire. Briscoe matched him with five TD passes and threw for 363 yards, but he completed just 20 of 40 passes and the Bearkats were held to a season-low 421 yards.Briscoe was sacked six times, two fewer than the number of times he was dropped during the entire regular season.Its that kind of physicality that Houston feels will be a deciding factor.I firmly believe that you get in these ballgames, middle of December, cold weather, a lot of stakes on the line, if you have a team that has that kind of identity, you got a shot, he said. I expect our guys to go out and play with a lot of heart and intensity Friday night, and I expect it to be a very physical ballgame. Daniele Padelli Italy Jersey .

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee must learn how to finish as well as it starts.Robert Hubbs III scored 25 points and made a key block in the last minute Tuesday night as Tennessee outlasted Tennessee Tech 74-68 after leading by as many as 22 points early in the second half.Tennessees fast first-half performance and struggle down the stretch came two days after the Volunteers couldnt hang on to a 15-point lead in a 73-71 loss at No. 7 North Carolina.Weve shown we can play well, Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said, but what we havent shown is we can play a really solid 40 minutes.After trailing 49-27 with just under 17 minutes left, Tennessee Tech (4-8) cut Tennessees lead to 71-67 on Courtney Alexander IIs dunk with 21 seconds remaining. Tennessee went 3 of 4 on free throws in the final 18 seconds to seal the victory.Im proud of how we came back, Tennessee Tech coach Steve Payne said. It could have gotten ugly.Before Alexanders dunk, Tennessee Tech had the ball twice in the last 90 seconds with a chance to trim a five-point deficit.On the first possession, Kajon Mack was called for an offensive foul when he leaned into Lamonte Turner with 1:14 left. The next time Tennessee Tech had the ball, Hubbs blocked Aleksa Jugovics 3-point attempt with 33 seconds remaining.I saw it all the way, Hubbs said. And then once I saw (Jugovic) slide to the corner, I just read it. I tried to steal it but couldnt get there in time, so I just played the shot and blocked it. We needed that. I had to make the play.Hubbs had arguably the best performance of his career against North Carolina, as the senior guard scored 21 points and shot 9 of 11. He stayed hot Tuesday by shooting 10 of 17 and pulling down seven rebounds, two off his career high.Turner added 16 points and shot 5 of 9 from 3-point range.But the game still was up for grabs in the last few minutes because Tennessee got stagnant. Lorenzo Insigne Jersey. Tennessee (5-4) withstood a 6 1/2-minute stretch in which it failed to make a basket.In the first half, I think we were the aggressor defensively, Turner said. In the second half, they were.Jugovic scored 14 points for Tennessee Tech. Mack and Savonte Frazier each scored 11, and Mason Ramsey added 10.THE TAKEAWAYTennessee Tech: The Golden Eagles have twice as many losses as wins, but theyve shown plenty of tenacity in how theyve rallied against more talented opponents. Tennessee Tech trailed Michigan State by as many as 18 on Saturday but made that game interesting down the stretch before falling 71-63. The Golden Eagles followed a similar formula Tuesday as Tennessee struggled to put the game away.Tennessee: The Vols played virtually error-free basketball in the first half by compiling 11 assists with only one turnover. Tennessee wasnt nearly as effective the rest of the way. In the second half, the Vols had 13 turnovers with six assists.QUOTABLEI thought after we dunked the ball once or twice, our guys acted like a bunch of high school guys where they thought the game was over with, Barnes said. We just started jacking some 3s up there. It doesnt take long when youre playing against a team thats well coached and that plays hard. They got comfortable and made us have to make plays at the end to win.KEY STATSTurner has gone 14 of 25 from 3-point range over his last four games. While Turner was 5 of 9 on 3-pointers Tuesday, his Tennessee teammates were a combined 1 of 11.NEXT UPTennessee Tech hosts Lipscomb on Saturday.Tennessee hosts Lipscomb on Thursday.---More AP College Basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org---Follow Steve Megargee at www.twitter.com/stevemegargee Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- When Curtis Samuel was taking a subway -- after taking the bus -- to football practice in high school, he never doubted he was talented enough to play at a top program such has Ohio State.His only concern was whether the Buckeyes would find him in Brooklyn.With the help of a family that kept his priorities straight and a well-connected high school coach, Samuel went from hearing the rumble of the elevated subway train next to Sid Luckman Field to the roar of 100,000 Ohio State fans at the Horseshoe.Samuel has emerged as No. 6 Ohio States most dangerous offensive weapon in his junior season. Playing the hybrid receiver-running back position that Percy Harvin once filled for Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer on a national championship team at Florida, Samuel is having a Harvin-type season. He is averaging 137 yards from scrimmage per game, 9.5 per touch, with eight touchdowns.That Samuel has performed so well in this role should be no surprise. He has been playing it since high school. Erasmus Hall coach Danny Landburg was first told about Samuel by Curtis stepfather, Roy Armstead, when Curtis was 7 years old and playing Pop Warner.Samuels talent was easy to spot. He was hurdling fences for the heck of it and outrunning all the other kids.I never knew I was fast. But everybody said I was fast. That was really exciting to hear that, Samuel said.For Nicole Samuel, Curtis mom, football was at first just a way to get her energetic son out of their apartment.Curtis walked at 7 months. From 7 months on he was moving around. He was flipping. He was talking a lot. He was just busy. All the time, Nicole Samuel said.Curtis older cousin, Rashaun Samuel, played football and Rashauns mother suggested to Nicole that it would be a good outlet for Curtis.He was unbelievable, Nicole said. And from then he just took off.Landburg could see a future Harvin or Reggie Bush.At first he said. `Im a running back, Landburg said. I said, `No, youre more than just a running back. His body type is not the type you want to pound 20 times a game.The 5-foot-11, 197-pound Curtis Samuel broke his ankle during practice when he was a sophomore in high school and watched from the bench at Yankee Stadium as Erasmus Hall lost the city championship. He vowed to make up for it and led Erasmus to the title as a junior.Sid Luckman Field, named after the Brooklyn native and Erasmus Hall alum who went on to become a Hall of Fame quarterback for the Chicago Bears in the 1940s, is a very different setting from those in which many four- and five-star recruits play in under Friday night lightss. Vans Old Skool Pink. First off, most of Erasmus Halls games are played Saturday afternoon. And the best way to get to the game is mass transit. A quarterback with a decent arm could stand on the midfield logo at Luckman Field and hit the F train with a football as it rattles by every five minutes or so.Samuel said ignoring the trains was easy during games. It was harder during a four-hour practice. Its like right next to you. Its real loud.The commute from Erasmus Hall in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn to Sid Luckman is about 25 minutes, Samuel said, if the buses and subway are running on time. After practice, it was another 40 minutes to get home.Im thinking in my head, a kid from New York City is not going to get a look from a big-time school like that, Samuel said.Generally, recruiters dont find many blue chips in the Big Apple. In Samuels recruiting class he was one of two New York City players, both from Brooklyn, to make Rivals.coms list of the top 250 players in the country. The 2017 class has one New York City player in the top 250.Landburg made sure Samuel was not overlooked. He knew Meyers offense was the perfect fit for Samuels skills, and Samuel was good enough to get Meyer to come to Brooklyn.I actually love Brooklyn, Meyer said. Love the delis there. He liked it so much he went back for freshman safety Jahsen Wint, another Erasmus Hall alum.Meyer said he never worried about Samuel making the transition to Columbus.There was no doubt once you got to know ... who was surrounding him, Meyer said.Nicole Samuel said her son is fortunate to have numerous positive role models from his father, Curtis Council, to cousin Rashaun to Armstead. Though its the women in Curtis Samuels life that have been inspirational.A lot of kids dont make it out of New York City or Brooklyn just playing sports, Samuel said. Theres a bunch of other distractions they get into. My mother kept me level-headed and on the right path. I love her to death for that.Samuel calls his 28-year-old sister, Denisha, his rock and heart. Denisha calls Curtis her little big brother.I went (to Columbus) for the game (last) Saturday, and I took the bus back by myself. Hes like, `When you get back make sure you call my phone no matter what time it is, Denisha said.Samuel said he misses Brooklyn and his family -- even all those bus and subway rides.What does he like best about Columbus? I really love the fans, he said.It certainly beats listening to the F train go by. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
