Nebraska is the reigning national champion in NCAA womens volleyball, and the U. Black Air Jordan 5 Retro .S. Olympic team will have a strong Big Red component, as well.USA Volleyball on Tuesday announced its 12-woman roster for the Rio Games, and it includes three former Huskers: outside hitters Jordan Larson and Kelsey Robinson, and libero Kayla Banwarth.Larson, a native of tiny Hooper, Nebraska (population 830), was a star on the 2006 national championship team for the Huskers, who won their fourth NCAA title this past December. Larson is also one of just four Olympic veterans who will be going to Rio de Janeiro, along with middles Foluke Akinradewo (Stanford) and Christa Dietzen (Penn State) and setter Courtney Thompson (Washington).Coach Karch Kiraly is taking a fairly youthful squad to the Olympics; the teams average age is 27, and Thompson, 31, is the only player over age 30. The youngest on the roster is opposite hitter Karsta Lowe, 23, who actually started her UCLA career as a walk-on and was part of the Bruins 2011 NCAA title team.Along with Lowe, Robinson and Banwarth, the rest of the newcomers are outside hitter Kim Hill (Pepperdine) and opposite hitter Kelly Murphy (Florida); middle Rachael Adams (Texas), and setters Alisha Glass (Penn State) and Carli Lloyd (Cal).(And if youre wondering, yes, there really are two Carli Lloyds going to Rio for the United States -- the volleyball and the soccer versions.)While only four players have previous Olympic volleyball experience, 10 of the 12 were on the 2014 FIVB World Championship team. That squad was the first to win gold for the U.S. women in the 62-year history of that event. However, unlike their counterparts in basketball and soccer, the U.S. womens volleyball team has never claimed an Olympic gold medal. Now, theyll be trying to dethrone two-time defending Olympic champion Brazil in its home country.Brazil beat the United States in the 2008 and 2012 finals by 3-1 scores; the U.S. women have three silver medals and one bronze in Olympic volleyball competition, which began for both women and men in 1964.As a player, Kiraly won gold in indoor volleyball in 1984 and 1988, and in beach volleyball in 1996. He was an assistant for the U.S. womens indoor team at the 2012 London Games, and then took over as its head coach after those Olympics.Under Kiraly, the U.S. team has ascended to the No. 1 ranking in the world, winning six of their past eight tournaments dating back to the 2014 World Championship. However, the Americans just lost in five sets against Brazil in their most recent meeting, Sundays final of the FIVB World Grand Prix in Thailand.The U.S. women open Olympic play Aug. 6 against Puerto Rico. The Americans also will face the Netherlands, Serbia, Italy and two-time Olympic champion China in pool play. White Air Jordan 5 Retro .

Now, correct me if Im wrong but I saw one official distinctly pointing at the net indicating a good goal but after an inconclusive review they overturned the goal.  Shouldnt the ruling on the ice (good goal) stand after an inconclusive review?  Why was this overturned?  James Veaudry Pembroke, ON --  Hey Kerry, Youll get a lot of these, but why was the Montreal goal against Nashville Saturday night overturned? Eller puts the puck on net and the on ice ruling from the ref behind the net is a Montreal goal. CARMEL, Ind. -- The man who has been most closely tied to Tiger Woods as a rival over the past two decades was thrilled to hear Wednesday that Woods is hoping to return to competitive golf next month.Phil Mickelson wasnt aware of Woods announcement until told during the BMW Championship pro-am at Crooked Stick Golf Club.Woods announced Wednesday that he hopes to return at the Safeway Open in Napa, California, which is two weeks after the Ryder Cup. Mickelson is also playing the Safeway tournament, which is the first event of the PGA Tours 2016-17 season. Additionally, Woods said he hopes to play a European Tour event in Turkey as well as the Hero World Challenge before the end of the year.I think its great; I dont know the state of his health. I havent seen him, Mickelson said. Im looking forward to spending time with him at the Ryder Cup. I think thatll be great motivation for him. Plus, hell have a week off.Im hoping we can get paired together (at the Safeway Open.) That would be really fun. I would love it. Its great to have him back, and hopefully hes physically able to practice the way he needs.Woods, 40, will be a vice captain for Davis Love III at Hazeltine National, site of the Ryder Cup wheree Mickelson, 46, will be a member of the U. Air Jordan 5 Retro Outlet. . team for the 11th consecutive time.Mickelson feels the experience will be good for Woods and likened it to what Sergio Garcia did in 2010 when he didnt make the European team but was named a vice captain by Colin Montgomerie at a time when Garcias game was in decline.Just like it did for Sergio years ago when he was a vice captain, it was kind of a motivating factor for him, Mickelson said. Hopefully itll be the same for Tiger when he comes back out.Mickelson, who finished second at The Open to Henrik Stenson in July, is ranked 13th in the world. All but nine of his 42 PGA Tour victories -- and each of his five major championships -- have come during the Woods era.Were always going to have high expectations because the guy is arguably one of the two greatest players in history, if not the greatest, said Mickelson of Woods, who has 79 PGA Tour titles, including 14 majors. Our expectations of him will always be high. It doesnt mean given all the health issues and challenges that hes faced ... it doesnt mean thats fair. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
