FRESNO, Calif. Tank Carradine Jersey . -- Jaron Hopkins scored 18 points on 9-of-12 shooting and Fresno State pulled away in the second half to beat NAIA-member Menlo College 80-67 on Wednesday night.Leading 35-34 at halftime, Bryson Williams sparked a 10-3 run with a pair of free throws and the Bulldogs led 49-41 after a dunk by Terrell Carter II. Jahmel Taylor hit a 3-pointer and the Bulldogs led by 17 with 5:36 to play and held on.Williams scored 12 points for the Bulldogs (4-2), who shot 49.2 percent from the floor (29 of 59) and outrebounded the Oaks 43-33. Deshon Taylor added a career-high 11 points, Paul Watson and Carter scored 10 apiece and Cullen Russo had five assists and two steals.Jared Wall led Menlo College with 17 points. Ben Graham added 13 and John Paine had 11.It was Fresno States 25th straight win against a non-Division I opponent. Dwight Clark Jersey . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. Joe Montana Jersey .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week. . Jon Montgomerys gold medal in skeleton at the Whistler Sliding Centre and his subsequent auctioning off of a pitcher of beer in the village square elevated him to folk-hero status. In this space last week, I waxed poetic about the strength of Joe Gibbs Racing, as I have been apt to do all season. Over the weekend, I broke down short, flat tracks, and still came out with picks consisting of the JGR team and JGR-powered Furniture Row car, with a little Kevin Harvick sprinkled in.I then led the weekend picks off with Denny Hamlin, despite him not putting up the gaudy numbers all season that his teammates were, but Im sure glad I did. Hamlin won from the pole, leading 189 laps for 125.25 points.JGR-powered Martin Truex Jr. one-upped him, leading 193 laps for 136.25 points.Those two dominated, as nobody else put up more than 63 DraftKings points.Lets move on to this weeks race. We have 10 races to go on the season, and some good news for those that pay attention: half of the remaining races will be held on 1.5-mile tracks. Its the most common track type on the schedule, but weve gone more than two months since racing at one.NASCAR only races once a year at Chicago, but weve had six races on this track type already this season. And what have we learned?Start/finish differential, always a favorite when making my picks, doesnt bode as well for the longshots here. There have only been four instances in the six races at those tracks this season of a driver moving up 20 or more spots. Three of those four were top-level drivers, costing at least $9,900.What about laps led? Well, weve had an instance of a driver leading more than 100 (actually more than 120) in all six such races this season. Truex did it three times, Harvick twice and Carl Edwards the other.Last year at Chicago, JGR looked tremendous in this race. Kyle Busch led the most laps, but finished ninth, clearing the way for ANOTHER JGR driver to get the win in Hamlin.Maybe I shouldnt ask what driver Im starting my team with. Maybe its which Gibbs-powered (or Furniture Row) car Im going to start my team with.Here are my picks to get you started this week, but check back again after qualifying for my final picks and fades.Im starting my team with:Its possible that Martin Truex Jr. wont win Sunday, but chances are, hell be a factor up front most of the day. Truex has averaged 130.8 laps led per race in the six 1.5-mile races this seeason. 49ers Jerseys China. Which is silly good when you consider that second is at 43.5, and two-to-five combined is 127.5. His 56.7 fastest laps and 94.4 fantasy points per race also lead all drivers.Hes even better recently, as he led at least 140 laps in three of the last four 1.5-mile races. With Chicago being a once-a-year stop, his career numbers arent going to be great there. Weve only seen this version of Truex for a couple seasons, and he did lead 39 laps in this race last season.Keep an eye on these four:Kevin Harvick: In the last 20 races on 1.5-mile tracks, Harvick has only twice finished outside the top 10, with three wins and eight runner-up finishes. So, more than half the time, hes giving you a top-two finish. One of those wasnt the last 1.5-mile race at Kentucky, but he led 128 laps in that race. Truex leads in everything on 1.5-mile tracks this year, but Harvick is second in everything.Kyle Busch: Youre not going to be able to get all three of these on your roster, unless you just absolutely punt on the last three spots, but its important to consider Busch too. Before his last two races on 1.5-mile tracks (finishes of 12th and 33rd, but with 29 fastest laps combined), Busch had a run of seven straight top fives on these sorts of courses, with three wins.Ryan Newman: Now to drop down the cost levels to find some drivers to fill your roster. Newman will be in the middle of the pack, but has top-10 finishes in the last three 1.5-mile races. Specifically at Chicago, Newman ran fourth last year, and has averaged an 8.4 finish and 40.7 DraftKings points per race in the last five years at the track.Austin Dillon: Dillon was the only driver from his team that made the Chase, so all the resources will be going to his car. Dillon has a top-20 finish in all six 1.5-mile races this season, and is coming off his strongest effort in the six at Kentucky, with 16 fastest laps. He also has a combined +23 start/finish differential in the last three such races.Thats all I have for you this week. Its Chicago, get yourself a deep dish pizza.
