MUNICH, Germany -- Bayern Munich defender Holger Badstuber will miss another 10 months after undergoing further surgery on the cruciate ligament tear in his right knee. Buccaneers Jerseys China Cheap . The Bundesliga champion says Badstuber had an operation on Monday to remove the ligament ruptured in a recurrence of the injury sustained during Bayerns 1-1 draw with Borussia Dortmund last December. The German international needs to allow drill holes from the first operation to close before a new ligament can be inserted. Badstuber, who missed more than half of the Bundesliga season, had returned from a torn thigh muscle 11 days before the initial cruciate tear. Bayern says Badstubers professional career is not in danger. Mike Alstott Jersey . JOHNS, N. Buccaneers Jerseys China .

MONTREAL -- Aaron Ekblad, Johnny Gaudreau and Dylan Larkin each scored twice to help North America beat Europe 7-4 on Sunday night in the second of three exhibition games for both sides leading into the World Cup of Hockey.Morgan Rielly also scored, and John Gibson made 29 saves for the team made up of Canadian and U.S players 23 or under as of Oct. 1. North America led 5-1 after the first period.We were making plays, we were fast, coach Todd McLellan said. But the game tightened up and we didnt do a good job of adjusting. The whole night turned into making nice plays. They forgot about the grit game and the defending. These young players want to have fun and play that way, but if we give up four goals a night, were not going to have success. We got cute. We got fancy. We have to play a better, soolid team game. Ronde Barber Jersey. arian Gaborik scored twice for Europe, and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Frans Nielsen added goals.Thomas Greiss allowed four goals on eight shots before being pulled 10 minutes into the first period. His replacement, former Montreal Canadiens netminder Jaroslav Halak, made 22 saves on 24 shots.We had a slow start and it cost us the game, Halak said. We made it real easy on them. We turned it around in the second. We knew we had to play better. Everyone knew what we had to do out there.North America also beat Europe 4-0 on Thursday night in Quebec City.

Evolution 2016 Super Smash Bros. Dan Fouts Jersey . for Wii U champion, Cloud9s Elliot Ally Bastien Carozza-Oyarce, has dropped out of The Big House 6, citing health concerns.@BearUNLV @_Vayseth_ DQ me. I left home. Sorry just couldnt sleep in 2 days and I have headaches since sat.— Elliot Carroza (C9) (@C9AlIy) October 9, 2016The worlds top Mario player was dropped into the losers bracket by Chris WaDi Boston in pools, which left many fans surprised. We played friendlies while we were at Cali for the Abadango Saga and he played relatively the same, WaDi said.As for tournament organizers, Panda Globals Bassem Bear Dahdouh feels that it wont affect the tournament moving forward. He said, He got a loss for that match against [James Wade].Allys departure from one of the largest Smash 4 tournaments of the year opens up the bracket, giving Japans Takuto Kameme Ono an opportunity to continue his losers run. It also means top players like Team eLevates Larry Larry Lurr Holland and Netherlands Ramin Mr. R Delshad wont have to face him. Wholesale Chargers Jerseys .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury. Junior Seau Jersey .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said. Inspiration. If you asked me, What did you think about the 2016 ESPYs? I would say it was incredibly inspiring.?Sitting among the very best athletes in the world is pretty awesome. There were guys there who Ive looked up to for a long time, who have inspired me for years and still do today.?A theater full of athletes, men and women, from around the world, side by side, is something pretty special and to share that experience is a huge honor. Simply put, its pretty humbling.??Head to toe in Pal Zileri, walking the long red carpet and getting to meet some very cool media along the way. A thousand questions and a lot of laughter in Los Angeles scorching sun. A 360 photo for Quicksilver from Capital One, fans looking down and calling out the names of their favorite stars and joking around with my fellow Best Driver nominee Scott Dixon?while Snapchatting for USA Today. These were moments from the day.But it wasnt until the lights went down as we took our seats and the montage of this years top sporting moments came on the big screen that I began to get goosebumps: watching athletes across all sports, in their best and worst moments -- the passion, the emotion, the drive, the focus. It was a pretty breathtaking compilation, beautifully showing the parallels of our sporting worlds, and the fundamental basis from which we all work; the common denominator and the rationale behind what we do.?Highs, lows, winning, losing, but mostly never giving up. Its something synonymous across all sports, no matter what your discipline. Wholesale Chargers Jerseys China. I think what resonated the most was that unity in which those collecting the awards spoke with a clear message to the world. Over on the block to my right, Lindsey Vonn. A few rows in front, LeBron James. A few rows left, Peyton Manning. And the list goes on: different people, different experts in their field, different perspectives -- but all united by our love of the game.?I thought Kobe Bryant summed it up perfectly when he said, My next dream is to be honored one day for inspiring the next generation of athletes to have a dream, sacrifice for it, and never, ever rest in the middle. We were on our feet for that -- a standing ovation for words we all agree on.And thats the feeling I came away with -- its about never settling, never giving up. Its a mantra that has stayed with me throughout my life, quite simply -- never, ever give up. Through the ups and downs, and the roller-coaster of life, I guess the only constant is that everything changes. For me, the night wasnt about the awards or the red carpet, it was about uniting people through sport and inspiring someone -- even if its just one person, to never give up.?I came away from it inspired. Kudos to Kyle Busch for his win as Best Driver, and thank you to The ESPYs and IndyCar Series for a brilliant couple of days.?Next stop is Toronto, and I cannot wait to get racing again.? Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
CHASKA, Minn. Cheap Panthers Jerseys China . -- Europes defeated players and officials may have been trying to mask their disappointment, but when asked to give their views on Ryder Cup week on Sunday night they produced something close to a comedy routine.The show took place at the final media conference and there were some serious points made. Rory McIlroy insisted his sides fans should not consider retaliation in France in 2018 after the American supporters behaviour here, and Justin Rose criticised the Hazeltine National course set-up on Sunday as being like that for a Pro-Am.But as the players drank while seated on the stage, and joked among themselves, the flippant responses were at least as many as the serious.The biggest laugh from the assembled media was when Danny Willett was asked to sum up his first Ryder Cup experience, from his brothers poorly judged blog to his underwhelming competition performance.S---, he said loudly before draining some more of his beer. Sorry, did you want me to elaborate? Really s---.The whole of Team Europe loved that and were still passing on their approval when the proceedings were over 15 minutes later.There was more, though. When it was put to the players that they wouldnt be throwing their coach under the bus as the Americans, and more specifically Phil Mickelson, did with Tom Watson in 2014, McIlroy quickly interjected: Not yet. Darren Clarke quipped: Ill leave if you want me to.McIlroy took centre stage, as he had for the team on the course so much this past week, and became so much like the teams unofficial spokesman, he ended up trying to deflect some of the questions.Having seriously addressed the issue of crowd behaviour at Hazeltine and highlighted how early fans had started drinking each day, he was asked whether something should be done to restrict access to alcohol at future events.Not with their pissy beer, no, McIlroy said. People are here to have a good time. I dont know how you could police that or limit that in any way, telling people they cant drink until 11:00 in the morning, they are just going to go and buy six beers.Geez, I know if I was watching the Ryder Cup, I would want to do the same thing. I mean, Id love to be on the other side of the ropes giving other people abuse, it would be so good. But unfortunately, I have to play inside the ropes, and thats a great privilege to have.Given all that has gone on in the past week, some of the answers were perhaps a little ill-judged. The explanation, or defence, would be at that stage of the evening, and of the event, they were just letting off steam and trying to relax with all the pressure finally gone.They were disappointed of course, but if anyone was expecting a downbeat, sombre atmosphere they would have been surprised. Maybe there was some bravado, and a bit of a defence mechanism kicking in, but gallows humour certainly prevailed.Sergio Garcia, bless him, repeatedly tried to get in on the act, joking with his teammates and commenting on proceedings regularly without getting the response he clearly so desperately wanted.Vice captain Ian Poulter was ribbed for seemingly being glued to twitter and Willett rolled his eyes when Sam Torrance was asked to remember one of his glory days. Others, particularly Matt Fitzpatrick and some of the other rookies, mostly sat quietly, looking a little bewildered.Lee Westwood got a laugh, though. Again, it was on the subject of crowd behaviour. Having just referenced how the American team seemed embarrassed by some of its supporters, he said: On a good point, I got called a t--- yesterday, which is the first time since I was about 12 years old, so it made me feel young again.Whether he or any of the others on Team Europe would feel youthful on Monday, was another matter. Gerald McCoy Jersey . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. Kyle Allen Jersey . Burke is expected to miss two to three months after breaking a finger in the teams third preseason game.

LAS VEGAS -- Nevadas governor signed a bill Monday clearing the way for a Las Vegas stadium that could be home to the Raiders, although NFL owners still need to approve the teams move from Oakland before Sin City becomes a football town.Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval and Raiders owner Mark Davis joined hard hat-wearing construction workers and mask-wearing Raiders fans for the ceremony at UNLV, whose football team would also use the 65,000-seat domed stadium. Cheerleaders shook pompoms and a marching band launched into Viva Las Vegas after Sandoval inked the deal.Las Vegas is ready for this. Nevada is ready for this, Sandoval said in an interview afterward. The best brand on the planet is coming together with one of the best brands in professional sports. It is truly one of those situations where 1+1 equals 3.Nevada lawmakers narrowly approved a deal in a special session last week that increases hotel taxes in the Las Vegas area to raise $750 million for a stadium and more than $400 million to expand and upgrade the Las Vegas Convention Center. In raw dollars, its the largest public contribution ever toward an NFL stadium, although the publics share of the total costs -- 39 percent -- is on par with stadiums in other similarly sized cities.Billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is putting $650 million toward the project, while the Raiders and the NFL will kick in $500 million. Critics called the deal a total scam, saying it prioritizes the legacy project of one of the worlds richest men over Nevadas school and mental health needs.Any relocation needs approval from three-fourths oof NFL team owners -- a historically conservative bunch that has shied away from Las Vegas because of its legal sports betting. Sione Teuhema Jersey. . Davis said he wont guess whether enough owners will jump on board.Davis denied speculation that supporting the Las Vegas plan was a way to force Oakland, which is also trying to keep the team, to build a new stadium. He emphasized that he prefers to move his team to Las Vegas over Southern California, which is also an option.I made a commitment to the governor of Nevada, he said after the ceremony. Ive never used another city as leverage.Beyond the Raiders, a stadium close to the Las Vegas strip would be a boon for UNLV, which plays at a field seven miles from campus. UNLV has been trying to break out from its reputation as a commuter school and elevate its academic and sports programs.Were entering into a renaissance here for the university, and you could definitely feel that here today, UNLV President Len Jessup said.The deal faced headwinds in the Nevada legislature, but it cleared that hurdle with persuasion from workers in the Laborers Union, who are eager for some of the 25,000 construction jobs expected to come from the stadium and convention center. The construction industry tanked during the recession and hasnt fully rebounded.It means the world for our families, said union organizer Kenneth McLin, who wore a hard hat and fluorescent shirt to the ceremony. The stadium is going to be the hero for everybody. Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys CheapWholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys' ' '
MINNEAPOLIS -- Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez left Tuesday nights game against the?Minnesota Twins?in the sixth inning after he was hit on the right wrist during an at-bat against Ervin Santana. Tyler Conklin Jersey .Santanas pitch ran in on Perezs hands and hit him squarely on the wrist of his throwing hand. Perez leaped out of the batters box and crouched to his knees as he winced in pain. After several minutes, Perez left the field and went back into the clubhouse for further examination.The Royals said Perez suffered a right wrist contusion.Manager Ned Yost told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday that he expects Perez back Friday.?Perez has 20 home runs and 59 RBIs in 121 games for the defending champions, who started the day two games back of the second American League wild-card spot.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. Alexander Mattison Jersey . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. Isaiah Wharton 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. . PAUL, Minn. ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves are getting older in their starting rotation next season.A lot, lot older.Not content to add one 40-something starter, the Braves made it two by agreeing to terms with 43-year-old Bartolo Colon, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Friday.The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement is expected from the Braves until next week on the reported $12.5 million, one-year deal with Colon.The agreement is subject to a physical and comes one day after the Braves said they had an agreement with 42-year-old knuckleballer R.A. first reported the Colon deal, which includes a team option for 2018.Colon went 15-8 with a 3.43 ERA for the New York Mets this season. He was picked for the All-Star Game and memorably became the oldest player in baseball history to hit his first career homer when he went deep at San Diego on May 7.While having two 40-year-old starters is not unprecedented -- the 1990 Texas Rangers featured 43-year-old Nolan Ryan and 42-year-old Charlie Hough -- its extremely rare.Still, Colon and Dickey both fit what the Braves were hoping to add as they prepare to move into SunTrust Park: experienced starters who could eat up innings and not require the sort of long-term contracts that would hamper payroll flexibility and stymie the growth of the organizations plethora of promising young pitchers.Colon and Dickey will bolster a shaky rotation that didnt produce anyone with double-figure wins this past season but does feature two-time All-Star JJulio Teheran and hard-throwing Mike Foltynewicz, who led the team with a 9-5 record. Jaleel Johnson Jersey. olon had 44 wins for the Mets over the last three seasons, and before that was an 18-game winner for Oakland at age 40. Hes also one of the games most popular players, which should make a good fit in the clubhouse.The Braves also have re-signed Josh Collmenter, who will likely join young pitchers Matt Wisler, Aaron Blair and Tyrell Jenkins in competing for the fifth starter spot.Atlanta is coming off a last-place finish in the NL East but showed promise down the stretch after acquiring slugger Matt Kemp from the Padres. Kemp teamed with first baseman Freddie Freeman to provide a 1-2 punch in the middle of the batting order.The Braves went 50-47 after an 18-46 start, including 12 wins in their final 14 games. General manager John Coppolella made it clear he expects to be a playoff contender next season when the team moves from Turner Field to its new $622 million stadium in suburban Cobb County.Atlanta is still hoping to add another catcher -- former Braves star Brian McCann, now with the New York Yankees, is among those mentioned -- and perhaps pick up another versatile player to help off the bench.Otherwise, the Braves appear to be largely set for 2017.And much, much older.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at .

CLEVELAND -- The Chicago Cubs lavished Jon Lester with a $155 million contract in the winter of 2014 precisely for moments like the one he faced Tuesday night. Jordan Mailata Jersey.On the road. Under the lights. In Game 1 of the World Series, with a chance to take a big step toward ending 108 years of franchise futility.And for the first time on baseballs biggest stage, Lester faltered. While his performance in Chicagos 6-0 loss to the Indians was hardly a meltdown, the left-hander managed just 5 2/3 ordinary innings when something significantly more was required to keep up with Cleveland ace Corey Kluber.Jonny pitched -- wasnt on top of his game, but really gave us a chance to win, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.The Indians didnt so much knock Lester around while sending him to his first World Series setback in four starts so much as they took advantage of the limited opportunities he gave them during a shaky first inning. Cleveland opened a two-run lead that felt considerably larger the way Kluber was dealing.When youre going against a guy like Kluber whos locked in from pitch one, to give up two in the first, its tough, Lester said.Lester took the mound having allowed just one run in 21 innings in the World Series during a career that includes a pair of championship rings he earned with the Boston Red Sox. By the time he got the final out of the first, Cleveland had doubled that total.Things began innocently enough. He struck out Rajai Davis and Jason Kipnis before Lesters postseason dominance briefly vanished.Francisco Lindor singled and took a massive lead off first, knowing all about Lesters inability to hold runners due to a tic that prevents him from making pickoff attempts with any kind of consistency or accuracy. At one point, Lester stepped off and Lindor found himself a good 25 feet off the bag. Yet rather than throw over, Lester stood and watched as Lindor scampered back to safety.It was hardly the first time opposing runners have toyed with Lester. Yet it seemed to be one of the rare occasions when it rattled him. He had trouble working out of the stretch and walked Mike Napoli and Carlos Santana to load the bases. Jose Ramirezs swinging bunt then brought Lindor home to stoke an already electrified crowd. When a 1-1 pitch hit Brandon Guyer on the leg, Chicago trailed 2-0.The first inning was tonights game, Lester said.Though he settled down -- thanks in part to catcher David Ross throwing out Lindor trying to steal in the third -- Lester again ran into trouble in the fourth when No. 9 batter Roberto Perez lined a solo shot that clanged off the railing above the wall in left field for the first of his two home runs.Yet its not the home run but the walks that are going to stick with Lester regardless of how comfortable -- or uncomfortable -- he felt when pitching with runners on base.I just didnt execute some things out there tonight, he said. Maybe if they get out of the first with nothing, maybe things are different.Lester, who came in 2-0 with a 0.86 ERA during the 2016 playoffs, handed the ball to manager Joe Maddon with two outs in the sixth and trudged to the dugout after giving up three runs on six hits with three walks and seven strikeouts.And when Perez clocked a three-run shot off reliever Hector Rondon in the eighth, the Cubs found themselves turning to Jake Arrieta for Game 2 on Wednesday night hoping to avoid heading back to Wrigley Field down 2-0 following a rare stumble by their ace who typically oozes October cool.Tomorrow we can get right back in it, Lester said. Everybody counted us out after Game 3 (of the NLCS) and called us the worst best team in baseball. ... Ill look to Jake to pick us up. Nate Sudfeld Jersey . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. Tre Sullivan Jersey . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. . PETERSBURG, Fla. EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Both Ohio State?and Michigan State?will be without key contributors on a cold, snowy afternoon at Spartan Stadium.Senior wide receivers Dontre Wilson and Corey Smith didnt travel with the No. 2 Buckeyes due to injury. It also appears an injured ankle will again sideline Michigan State standout defensive lineman Malik McDowell, who was not listed on the programs dress list after missing the game last week against Rutgers.Wilson is Ohio States third-leading receiver this season with 26 catches and five touchdowns, and hes also been a threat as rusher with 16 carries and a touchdown on the ground. Kevin Wilkins Jersey. He left the win over Maryland last week with an undisclosed injury, but the veteran wasnt listed during the week by coach Urban Meyer as a possibility to miss the trip to take on the Spartans.His absence, along with Smiths as he recovers from having pins removed from his injured wrist, will test the depth of Ohio States young receiving corps and likely put more pressure on H-back Curtis Samuel to get more involved offensively against the Spartans. Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '

Frazier added 18 points and Georgia never trailed to beat UNC-Asheville 60-46 Monday night.Georgias win marked the 250th coaching victory for Mark Fox, now in his eighth season. Fox is 127-104 at Georgia.We showed more poise, I thought we competed better, but were at home, said Fox, who has won seven of eight home openers at Georgia. Weve got to be able to deal with adverse situations on the road and adverse environments. ... Tonight we played better basketball and that is progress, which is good.Frazier tallied a 3-pointer at the 17:57 mark of the first half to record his 1,000th career point for Georgia (1-1).

UNCA also lagged behind on the boards as Georgia held a 45-29 edge on the glass, including 34 defensive rebounds.Usually its about boxing out and going to get it, pretty much, said Maten, who led Georgia with nine rebounds.UNCA collected 17 bench points to Georgias six. The only other areas where UNCA was able to keep up with Georgia were in the lane, where it posted 22 points in the paint compared to Georgias 24, and in the turnover department, where UNCA recorded 11 to Georgias 17 and posted 13 points off its opponents miscues.I was really happy with the way we took care of the basketball, certainly when looking at the turnover margin, UNCA coach Nick McDevitt said. I was really happy with our ability to take care of the ball and how hard we were playing. We just couldnt get anything to fall. Some of them were ill-advised shots, but for the most part, I thought we were taking open looks by guys that can shoot the basketball.Georgia cleared its bench by games end, with seven of 14 players reaching the scoring column, including freshman Jordan Harris, whose first collegiate shot attempt was a 3-pointer in the second half.BIG PICTUREGeorgia: After falling in their season opener Friday night at Clemson, Georgia bounces back with a decisive victory over UNCAUNCA: The Bulldogs are still looking for their first win of the season after losing back to back games.AUGUST COMPANYFrazier is the 47th Georgia player to hit 1,000 points and is the sixth player under Mark Fox to reach the mark, joining Charles Mann (1,411 points), Trey Thompkins (1,396), Kenny Gaines (1,324), Nemi Djurisic (1,123), Travis Leslie (1,099) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (1,013).QUOTABLEWe have to see how it evolves.

COLUMBIA, S. Cheap New Balance Shoes Online Australia .C. -- South Carolina will have to keep its undefeated run going without suspended leading scorer and rebounder Sindarius Thornwell, at least for a while.The 6-foot-5 senior has been benched since last Sunday when the school announced hed been suspended indefinitely for violating athletic department policy.Gamecocks coach Frank Martin said on Friday that Thornwell made a mental mistake and believed he would return to the team this season.It appears he wont be in the lineup next week ahead when the 19th-ranked Gamecocks (8-0) face Seton Hall (7-2) at Madison Square Garden on Monday night, then travel to South Florida on Dec. 17.Thornwell has practiced with the team and will travel to games until his suspension is lifted.Its an adjustment, for sure, sophomore PJ Dozier said . But at the end of the day, weve got to come out and compete. These games continue to go on.Thornwell played a major role in South Carolinas impressive start this season, which has included victories over then 25th-ranked Michigan on Nov. 23 and against then-No. 18 Syracuse three days later.Thornwell tops the Gamecocks with 18.7 points and 6.7 rebounds a game. He also leads the team in assists, three-point shooting and foul shooting.Martin would not go into detail about what Thornwell did wrong or when he might return.If I knew when he was coming back I wouldnt have released the statement about Thornwells indefinite suspension, Martin said.At the end of the day, we all fall under one umbrella, which is the University of South Carolina, Martin said. We all have to conduct and act and follow the laws and the rules that have been created by this institution. And when theyre not, you dont play favorites because somebodys a good player and somebodys a lesser player.One thing Martin is sure of -- the rest of his roster will have to step up against Seton Hall and South Florida to mitigate the absent Thornwell.Not one guy is going to step in and be Sindarius, Martin said. They all collectively have to grab an extra rebound each, have to come up with an extra assist each, have to figure out a way to all of them score one more basket each than what theyve been doing.Where Thornwell might be missed most is in South Carolinas defensive scheme. He led the team in steals last season and was picked for the all-Southeastern Conference defensive team.Martin had Thornwell glued to the opponents best perimeter scorer, a chasers role the senior from Lancaster had taken great pride in the past two seasons.Now, Martin will look to Dozier, a 6-6 point guard who was the SECs player of the week last week as he averaged 20.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 3.5 steals in wins over Vermont and Florida International.Dozier, a McDonalds All-American in high school, struggled with some defensive concepts as a freshman, often getting benched after picking up too many hand-check fouls instead of keeping in front of his man.Martin said thats changed this season as Dozier has worked to elevate his defensive play. He leads the Gamecocks with 19 steals this season.Hes starting to kind of spread his wings of late, Martin said of Doziers play.A bulk of responsibility will also fall to senior guard Duane Notice, last years SEC sixth man of the year who has started all eight games this season and is third in scoring at 11.5 points a game behind Thornwell and Dozier.Thornwell is understandably disappointed with his mistake, Martin said. Hes kept up a leadership role of encouraging players and taking charge at practice when things break down.Hes not going to allow his spirit to be broken. His teammates are not going to allow his spirit to be broken, Martin said.---More AP college basketball: and Balance Clearance Australia .

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA will need all 11 players on defense and special teams to contain Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey. Buy Adidas Superstar Australia .The Bruins have used almost as many players to simulate McCaffrey in practice this week as they prepare to face the Heisman Trophy contender on Saturday.Wide receiver Darren Andrews listed quarterback Craig Myers and wideouts Damian Alloway, Theo Howard, Stephen Johnson, Christian Pabico and Brad Sochowski as having played McCaffrey on the scout team.Im not on that side so I really cant see, but from what I hear they are doing a good job, Andrews said. We got a lot of different players playing that position, different players with different attributes that we think McCaffrey has.UCLA is more than familiar with the various facets of McCaffreys game. As a freshman, he had 88 all-purpose yards in a 31-10 upset win for the Cardinal that denied UCLA a spot in the Pac-12 title game, showing tantalizing hints of what was to come. McCaffrey rushed for 243 yards and four touchdowns last season as Stanford extended its winning streak in the series to eight games.Its hard to emulate him with anybody, coach Jim Mora said. No disrespect to any other players in the country but I think he is the best player in football.McCaffrey has totaled 200 all-purpose yards in eight consecutive games and rushed for 100 yards in 13 of his last 14 games, demonstrating the versatility and elusiveness that Mora described in detail while lavishing praise on the junior.He is really slippery. He doesnt go down easy. Hes like a pinball in there sometimes. Even when you wrap, he has an uncanny ability to get arms off of him. And he always falls forward, Mora said. I think all of this is a product of this great competitiveness that he has inside of him. How can you respect a guy more than you can respect the way he plays football? Its unbelievable.While UCLA has struggled to mimic McCaffrey, Mora believes his team is better prepared to handle No. 7 Stanfords physicality after moving to a more pro-style offense and adding intense 9-on-7 run drills during spring practice and training camp. That emphasis finally seemed to pay off last week, as UCLA held BYU to 23 rushing yards.Factoring in sacks, the 23 net yards rushing allowed was the best performance by UCLAs defense since holding Arizona State to 21 yards in 2008. It was a step forward after allowing 378 yards rushing combined in UCLAs first two games against Texas A&M and UNLV.We still have to execute, Mora said. We still have to get off blocks. We cant get shoved down the field. We have to tackle well in space. We have to get bodies around Christian McCaffrey. We have to take care of this quarterback and cover, but I think we appear, we appear, to be better equipped, so thats a positive.That extensive 9-on-7 work could also benefit the UCLA offense against a Stanford run defense that has been an annual fixture at or near the top of the Pac-12 rankings.Thats how we opened practice, running back Nate Starks said. Hard-nosed football, downhill running the ball, and thats what it is going to be like all game against Stanford. Adidas Superstar Online Australia . There was no hesitation from the 40th-ranked Pospisil, from Vernon, B.C., who admitted that he cut back on his training sessions over the last few days to conserve energy as the long ATP season finishes next week at the Paris Masters. Adidas Superstar Clearance Sale .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. After 18 trades on deadline day, baseball probably deserves a chance to take a deep breath.That calm period may not last for long.Teams had until 4 p.m. EDT on Monday to make trades without waivers, and it was the busiest deadline day since at least 1995, according to Major League Baseball. In a sense, the deadline marks the unofficial start of each seasons pennant races. From now on, its hard for any team to make a major move, so the contenders will have to hope the rosters they have are good enough.Some of the biggest trades were made by teams already in first place, like Texas, Cleveland and San Francisco. But the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets, who are trying to come from behind in their divisions, were also active.Now the focus turns to the aftermath -- and how all these moves will affect the postseason chase.Here are a few things to watch as the dust settles following Mondays deadline:GOING FOR ITThis years biggest buyers were the Texas Rangers, who have the American Leagues best record and added two of the top prizes on the trade market. The Rangers acquired catcher Jonathan Lucroy from Milwaukee and outfielder Carlos Beltran from the New York Yankees.Texas also got Brewers closer Jeremy Jeffress. The Rangers had to send two former first-round draft picks to Milwaukee, but with Houston within striking distance in the AL West, Texas decided to be aggressive.The Astros were 10 games behind Texas on July 29, but the deficit is now 5 1/2 games. Houston had a fairly quiet trade deadline and will now have to try to chase down the revamped Rangers.RIVALSThe Los Angeles Dodgers are two games behind San Francisco in the NL West, but they added left-hander Rich Hill and outfielder Josh Reddick in a deal with Oakland. The Giants werent about to stand pat, acquiring left-hander Matt Moore from Tampaa Bay. Superstar Shoes Sale Australia. The Dodgers still have their share of drama hanging over them in the form of Clayton Kershaws injury problems and Yasiel Puigs situation, but Hill and Reddick will have a chance to give them a boost.SHUFFLING THE STAFFAaron Sanchez is 11-1 with a 2.71 ERA for Toronto, but the 24-year-old righty has already surpassed his previous high in innings. That means the Blue Jays are set to move him to the bullpen, a decision that may not be popular with everyone in Canada. The team feels its the best way to enable him to keep contributing this year.The Blue Jays acquired left-hander Francisco Liriano. He may help the Toronto rotation withstand the loss of Sanchez -- but only if he improves on the 5.46 ERA he posted in 21 starts with Pittsburgh this season.LOGJAMThe New York Mets added another power hitter to their lineup when they acquired Jay Bruce from Cincinnati, but now they have four outfielders who can start. With Bruce and Yoenis Cespedes figuring to be in the middle of the lineup, either Curtis Granderson or Michael Conforto could end up as the odd man out. Both bat left-handed.ONE IS ENOUGH?Clevelands attempt to acquire Lucroy fell apart when he refused to waive the no-trade provision in his contract, but the Indians did make one major move, adding reliever Andrew Miller in a deal with the Yankees. Will that be enough for them to hold on in the AL Central?Nobody else in the division made any significant additions. After years of being active around the deadline, Detroit didnt make any trades this time, although the Tigers can look forward to getting Jordan Zimmermann and J.D. Martinez back from injuries.---Follow Noah Trister at ' ' '
RIO DE JANEIRO -- Mandy Bujold and Mikaela Mayer barely missed out on the debut of womens boxing at the London Olympics. Cheap Nike Roshe Shoes .The Canadian flyweight and the American lightweight both stuck with their sport after that qualifying disappointment, and they both celebrated victories in their long-awaited Olympic debuts Friday.They both realize theyve accomplished no small feat, given how their sport has grown in the ensuing four years.When you watch the girls fight and you watch the guys fight, theres really no difference, Bujold said. I think the girls actually go for it more, because weve got the two-minute rounds. Its all excitement.Four years after the womens boxing tournament was the best thing in the London ring, the encore has begun in Brazil. With fast-paced bouts and charismatic fighters, Riocentro Pavilion 6 buzzed with excitement when women led off both sessions, starting with a thrilling first bout.After peppering her larger, favored opponent with punches for four furious rounds, Ukraine light flyweight Tetyana Kob celebrated by doing the splits while her hand was raised by the referee in victory.The competition has just shot through the roof, Mayer said moments after dominating Micronesias Jennifer Chieng. You go to a tournament, and if you want to get that gold medal, there arent a lot of pushover fights. These girls are experienced. Theyve got Olympic medals.Just as professional womens MMA rapidly became vital to that sports image and health over the past four years, the smaller world of amateur boxing has realized that its female competition is one of its most important assets.The International Boxing Association (AIBA) aggressively backed the womens sport for years, and President Ching-Kuo Wu is determined to add more fighters and weight classes to the next Olympics. The current field is only 36 boxers in three weight classes, due to IOC restrictions on the total number of Olympic athletes, but Wu wants five womens weight categories at the 2020 Games in Tokyo, calling it vital for equality.All three gold medalists from London are back to defend their titles in Rio fights featuring four two-minute rounds, rather than the three three-minute rounds fought by men. The women are still wearing headgear, while the men fight increasingly bloody bouts without the protection, but AIBA is expected to remove the gear from the women next year as well.AIBA is getting much, much better at showcasing the women and really appreciating the talent we have, Bujold said after beating Uzbekistans Yodgoroy Mirzaeva to reach the quarterfinals. I love seeing it, because Ive grown up in this sport. Seeing it grow, seeing it get into the Olympics, and now seeing the elite women out there (in Rio), its amazing.Olympic committees around the world responded to the success of womens boxing in London by pumping money into their national programs -- and USA Boxing used that to its entire teams advantage. After Claressa Shields gold medal and Marlen Esparzas bronze, the Americans secured funds from the USOC to hire Walsh as womens head coach, but he oversees all eight men and women on the Olympic team.The (womens) sport has grown immensely, said veteran coach Billy Walsh, who helped Irelands Katie Taylor to the first Olympic lightweight gold medal in London. The last world championships in May, the standard was fantastic, and its only getting better each year.The world still hasnt changed completely, however. Cuba, the most successful Olympic boxing nation behind only the U.S., still hasnt sent a female fighter to the Olympics. A competition gap also exists among nations with more established boxing cultures, even at the top level: Shields hasnt lost a fight in four years since London, although her dominance is a reflection of her singular talent as well.But the worldwide growth of womens boxing isnt slowing down. A record 236 boxers from 73 nations fought at the womens world championships in Kazakhstan earlier this year.Its so hard to qualify for the Olympics now, Mayer said. No one is just there, trust me. If youre there, you know how to hold your own. Qualifying is the toughest part. At this level, we are professionals. These are not amateurs. Nike Roshe China Wholesale . 8 Iowa State on Saturday, sending the Cyclones to their third consecutive loss.

Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby, who is out indefinitely with a concussion, did not skate at practice with his teammates Saturday.Crosby, who missed the Penguins season-opening shootout win Thursday night against the Washington Capitals, took to the ice by himself earlier Saturday morning.The Penguins were preparing for their Saturday night home game against the Anaheim Ducks.Crosby skated with teammates in practice earlier in the week but wore a yellow noncontact jersey most of the time.The 29-year-old Crosby is coming off a superlative 2015-16 season that saw him start slowly with just five points in October but finish by playing some of the best hockey of his career. He was named playoff MVP in helping the Penguins to a second Stanley Cup during his tenure with the team. Cheap Nike Roshe Online.
