PULLMAN, Wash. Evgenii Dadonov Jersey . -- The mind of Marcellus Pippins of Washington State was racing as he saw the loose football on the turf at Martin Stadium.He bent down and scooped the ball up, and one thought ran through his brain.Run fast, dont get caught, Pippins said.He gave no thought to diving on the football.It was me and the touchdown, said Pippins, who ran 72 yards for the score that helped ignite Washington States 56-6 win over Idaho on Saturday.Luke Falk threw for 226 yards and three touchdowns as Washington State posted a positive end to a tumultuous week.James Williams rushed for 126 yards and a touchdown for Washington State (1-2), which won on a wet, windy day when the Air Raid offense was not working very well.Idaho (1-2) struggled for the second straight week against a Pac-12 team, after losing at No. 8 Washington.The Vandals have not scored a touchdown against Washington State the past two times the teams have played.Austin Rehkow kicked a 42-yard field goal as Idaho took a 3-0 lead on its first possession.Williams ran over from the 2 for a 7-3 lead for the Cougars. The touchdown was set up by a 50-yard completion from Falk to Kyle Sweet.Nose tackle Robert Barber blocked a 32-yard field-goal attempt by Rehkow and Pippins scooped up the ball and ran 72 yards for a touchdown as Washington State took a 14-3 lead midway through the second quarter.Once special teams made a play it was like a chain reaction, WSU running back Gerard Wicks said.Idaho quarterback Matt Linehan fumbled on a bootleg, and Robert Taylor recovered for Washington State on Idahos 36. Falk threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Gabe Marks as Washington State built a 21-3 lead late in the second quarter.Idaho drove all the way to the WSU 1 midway through the third quarter, but had to settle for Rehkows 18-yard field goal that cut the Cougars lead to 21-6.Washington State replied with a 90-yard drive that ended on Wicks 2-yard scoring run for a 28-6 lead.Falk threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Robert Lewis early in the fourth for a 35-6 lead, and the Cougars added three more touchdowns in the fourth.We played hard the whole game, Washington State coach Mike Leach said. Defense played better than offense.The sloppiness with regards to penalties is alarming, Leach said of the 11 penalties against the Cougars.Leach said his players seemed to respond well to a week of hard practices and harsh criticism.We seem to have a group that has a tendency to go soft, Leach said. Weve got to be on them all the time.Idaho coach Paul Petrino did not appear in the postgame interview room.Washington State was expected to contend for the Pac-12 North, but opened the season with losses to FCS foe Eastern Washington and Boise State. That prompted Leach this week to rip his Cougars as soft. Leach also complained that Pullman police seemed to be targeting his players, after four were recently arrested in three different incidents, which the police chief has denied.THE TAKEAWAYIDAHO: The Vandals, who have designs on qualifying for a bowl game this season, were coming off a 59-14 loss at Washington. The Vandals and Cougars are located in towns just 8 miles apart and this was the 92nd meeting between the two closest neighbors in the FBS.WASHINGTON STATE: Idaho has often been a cure for what ailed the Cougars. Washington State leads the series 72-17-3.GROUND RAIDLeachs Air Raid pass attack got a bit of a rest, as the Cougars piled up 228 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. The coaches believed in us, Wicks said.UP NEXTIDAHO: Plays at UNLV on Saturday.WASHINGTON STATE: Has a bye this week, and hosts No. 22 Oregon on Oct. 1. Aleksander Barkov Jersey .

As communities and towns right across Canada gear up to celebrate our nations birthday on Monday, European footballs wheelers and dealers --check book and the de rigueur brown paper bag stuffed with cash at the ready -- are salivating at the thought the summer transfer window officially opening for business the very same day. Scott Stevens Devils Jersey . In the run up to Monday clubs have been permitted to consummate deals with the proviso the buying and selling club hail from the same domestic league. Typically Real Madrid has been at the forefront of getting their bids in early. The wannabe 10-time Euro champs displayed their intentions and used their first-mover advantage to maximum effect earlier in the week with news the Madristocrats had locked up one of Spains prime young assets: former Malaga midfielder Francisco Alarcón Suárez. Better known under his one-name moniker, “Isco” gave the perfect account of himself when he was voted the tournaments Golden Boy as Spain retained the UEFA Under-21 Championships in Israel earlier this month. A lifetime Barcelona supporter, Isco is sure to go down well with the locals when he takes his dog for a stroll round the Madrid streets. The ex-Malaga mans dog is called Messi. Not too sure it will be wise to throw him a ball though. Next up in the Los Blancos sightlines are none other than Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez and this summers most in-demand glamour boy, “My Left Foot” himself: Gareth Bale. If Perez is successful the total transfer outlay on these three musketeers - when combined with the 35m euro [$45m CAD] Real reportedly paid Malaga - would most certainly exceed a quarter of a billion dollars. Factor in the existing salaries of this mega Grade-A talent and Madrids total capital investment could exceed the half billion mark. Evidently, Florentino Perez hasnt read any of Michel Platinis memos on UEFAs Financial Fair Play model that comes into full effect this upcoming season. FFP is that utopian one-size-fits-all financial model which restricts and requires clubs across European football to spend what they earn that sounds great in theory. However, in practice FFP will allow the clubs who sign the blockbuster sponsorship deals and receive the greater proportion of broadcast revenues - domestically, continentally and globally - to pull further away from clubs towards the middle and bottom end of the European football food chain. Then factor in, say, the Emirates box office on match day compared to Anfields. The comparison is $5 million vs. $1.5 million and we havent even discussed the icing on the FFP cake; club merchandise. The abundance of Ronaldo, Messi and Rooney [who himself could be on the move this summer] shirts walking round Canadian and U.S. streets alone likely outnumbers the gross domestic merchandise product for the French Ligue 1 and Dutch Eredivisie combined. The rich will indeed get richer and continue to win most if not all the silverware. Just like in the real world itself, over the long run the wealth gap between the ‘haves and the ‘have-nots will widen. It could get to the point when – by time Europe next gets to host a World Cup Finals in 2018 - even Nik Wallenda himself would turn down opportunity to tightrope across such an exhaustible and unbridgeable gap. Just ask yourself why Manchester United CEO David Gill and Roman Abramovich have cuddled up to Platini. Something about protecting future earnings, anyone? Jurgen Klopp, who knows a thing or two (and certainly a lot more than any UEFA FFP Panel) used the platform of the UEFA Champions League Final to full effect when on the eve of the final, Klopp voiced very legitimate fears that he saw a day the Bundesliga would mimic the Scottish Premier League. With Bayern playing the role of Celtic, UEFA Financial Fair Play must be the reason why the monopoly board was invented in the first place. Bayern, so optimistically influencing, spent their additional (very lucrative) Champions League broadcast revenue even before they earned it when in late April they captured the $45 million signature of Klopp prodigy Mario Götze. The threat of barring clubs from elite competitions will in time result in such demand for top notch club accountants and lawyers they themselves will likely have to hire player agents as they hold out for 150,000 euros-plus per week in tax free salaries like the players themselves. Surely this was the summer UEFA would have forecasted we would witness a dramatic downturn in spiraling transfer fees. When in reality we may well soon see Torres: Version 2.0. Take it back to late January 2011 and the cart-before-the-horse scenario where Liverpool, to save face pushed back Abramovichs opening salvo for their prime Spanish ace. Anfield requested Torres put in a transfer request as the storied English club demanded 50 million pieces of William and Kate silvers to cut ties with El Nino. Roman duly obliged back then. Now we have reports Liverpool will demand Suarez place a transfer request ahead of any such 50m pound move to Bernabeu. The transfer request is an important factor because placing one denies the player any percentage of his fee garnered at market. These percentages which - in this era of football doping, as Wenger describes it - tend to be negotiated with the player and his management team on an individual basis and can be as lofty as 15 per cent. Not a bad days work for a signature. And we thought there was a growing market for signed baseball cards. Frighteningly, just as the final whistle sounds in Sunday evenings mouth-watering Confederations Cup Final at the mythical Maracana it will also signal a mad dash to the airport as players the world over begin making their way back to their European football outposts. Yes, folks, in the coming two weeks right across the UEFA continent players who have not participated in any spring international tournaments begin reporting to training camp. Fitness levels will be checked as financial wherewithal reaches a new dimension. By the end of August when the window closes lets see how vast the EU aggregate spend is. With the prospect upon us that Bale, Cavani, Suarez, Lewandowski and Rooney could be joining the likes of Tevez, Isco, Fernandinho and Götze before them and running out next season in a different jersey than the one they threw into the crowd at the end of last season puts a whole new dimension on European club football finances. Now add in just for fun comments earlier this week from the Legendinho himself: Johan Cruyff. The Dutch Master suggested in a MARCA interview that with the $70m-plus Neymar now installed at the Camp Nou, the club Cruyff took to its very first European Cup in 1992, should take advantage of the rising market prices and sell the current face of the franchise: Lionel Messi. As he holidays in Milan, what price would the Argentine maverick command? The just-turned 26-year-old who we are yet to see the very best of? Told you it was fun. So many euros will be required by Sheik Mansour it will likely lead to a rise in the value of Europes beleaguered currency unit. Not sure this was in any UEFA FFP forecasts.

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. Martin Brodeur Devils Jersey . Kozun faked to the forehand and beat Monsters starter, Calvin Pickard, pad side in the second round for the winner. Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4). . Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. Mexicos Misael Rodriguez, who claimed a bronze medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, has signed a promotional agreement with Richard Schaefers Ringstar Sports.Terms of the deal, which was announced Wednesday, were not disclosed.Rodriguezs medal in the middleweight competition was the first for a Mexican boxer since Cristian Bejarano claimed a lightweight bronze medal in the 2000 Sydney Games.After I came back from the Olympics, I knew that it was time to start my professional career, Rodriguez said. I am excited to have signed with Ringstar Sports. I have always appreciated Richard Schaefers approach on developing talent into boxing stars. When the time came, picking my promoter was easy. I knew that this is where I wanted to be.Schaefer, the former chief executive and co-founder of Golden Boy Promotions, left the company 2? years ago after a falling out with co-founder and principal owner Oscar De La Hoya. In June, Schaefer founded Ringstar Sports.Last month, Schaefer signed his first two fighters, 2016 U.S. Olympic lightweight representative Carlos Balderas and his brother, bantamweight Jose Balderas. Now Schaefer has his third fighter and is excited to have signed a crowd-pleaser in the 22-year-old Rodriguez.Hes very exciting, Schaefer said. Hes not as polished or advanced as Carlos Balderas, but he is exciting and he comes to fight, and that is what I like. While I appreciate the sweet science, fans like to see toe-to-toe action, and that is his style.Hes going to be the ultimate entertainer and will follow in the footsteps of some of the great Mexican warriors who go and thrill the fans. We are going to take it slow, but he has that it factor. He knows how to entertain. His personality, his laugh, his smile -- absolutely incredible and that is what really attracted me. Hes a nice, polite, kind young man who loves to entertain fans.Schaefer said Rodriguez likely will fight professionally either in the 160-pound middleweight division or 154-pound junior middleweight division. His pro debut, Schaefer said, probably will take place in February in Los Angeles on the same card on which the Balderas brothers will have their pro debuts.Im thrilled to be adding anotther promising young potential superstar in Misael Rodriguez to the Ringstar lineup, Schaefer said. Will Butcher Devils Jersey. This is a young man who has overcome every obstacle thrown his way. He is mentally strong, has great skills and I expect him to have a very long, successful career. Im looking forward to helping Misael and his family achieve their goals, and I hope to make him a household name in the sport.Rodriguez went 104-22 as an amateur and claimed bronze medals at the 2014 La Romana Cup, the Independence Cup and the Pan-American Sports Festival, in addition to a silver medal at the Veracruz Central American and Caribbean games. In 2016 he earned a silver medal at the American Olympic Qualifier. He is anxious to get his pro career going.I look forward to showing the world the passion and heart I have for the sport I love, Rodriguez said. Becoming a world champion has always been a childhood dream, and now it is my No. 1 goal.Adorno signs with Top Rank?Junior lightweight Joseph Adorno, a 17-year-old born in Union City, New Jersey, and raised in Puerto Rico, signed with Top Rank, the company announced.Adorno, who was 178-22 in the amateur ranks, made his professional debut on Dec. 2 and scored a first-round knockout of Guy Newman at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.I can do it all in the ring, but my main plan is to stay calm, use my jab and a lot of hard combinations, Adorno said of his fighting style. If I have to box, I box. If I have to go get the fight, I go get the fight.Adorno is co-managed and co-trained by his father, Anibal Adorno, and Robert Garcia, one of boxings elite trainers.Adorno was a bronze medalist at the 2016 National Golden Gloves at 132 pounds and won gold medals at the 2015 Junior Olympic National Championship and 2015 USA Junior National Championships at 125 pounds.Hes got a bright future. He has tremendous skills with a beautiful left hook to the body, Garcia said. Im looking forward to his future in boxing. He is a young kid with so much talent and dedication. He is just 17 years old and still a senior in high school. ' ' '

This story appears in ESPN College Football 2016, on newsstands now. Jawaan Taylor Jaguars Jersey . Order online today!Michigan is looking for a quarterback after saying goodbye to Jake Rudock while Michigan State needs someone to fill Connor Cooks shoes. Ohio State needs to replace Ezekiel Elliott. Who will emerge this fall in some of the Big Tens most interesting position battles?East DivisionMichigan Wolverines: QuarterbackHouston transfer John OKorn is the leader in the clubhouse to succeed a surprisingly solid Jake Rudock under center (81.3 QBR in 2015, No. 10 in the FBS), but hes a bit of a wild card. After throwing for 3,117 yards and 28 touchdowns in his AAC rookie-of-the-year campaign in 2013, he was benched five games -- and eight interceptions -- into 2014. Junior Shane Morris (who redshirted last year), junior Wilton Speight and true freshman Brandon Peters (the No. 3 pro-style quarterback in the class of 2016) will push OKorn throughout the summer.Ohio State Buckeyes: Running back?Ezekiel Elliott left large cleats to fill, and not just because he ran for 3,699 yards, 41 TDs and 12 multiple-TD games in his past two seasons. He was also valued as a blocker. And while he was the only RB show in town for two years, the Buckeyes look primed to employ a tailback-by-committee approach this fall. Fifth-year senior?Brionte Dunn and redshirt freshman Mike Weber will battle for the starting gig, but early enrollee Antonio Williams and hybrids Curtis Samuel and Dontre Wilson will merit attention too.Penn State Nittany Lions: Quarterback?Three-year starter Christian Hackenberg departed early for the NFL after two frustrating seasons behind an understocked line in Franklins system. Hackenberg was durable, attempting all but 75 of PSUs 1,310 passes since 13, making his absence a gaping hole under center. Sophomore Trace McSorley led an inspired comeback attempt (two fourth-quarter TD passes) in last years bowl loss vs. Georgia after Hackenberg got hurt, so he has a slight edge for the job despite just 13 regular-season attempts. Redshirt freshman Tommy Stevens and early enrollee Jake Zembiec are also fits in Moorheads new system.Michigan State Spartans: Quarterback?Mainstay Connor Cook (39 starts in three years) is gone, so coach Mark Dantonio will decide between senior?Tyler OConnor?and junior Damion Terry (80 combined career pass attempts). They are both more mobile than their predecessor (116 yards rushing combined in 15, compared with Cooks 56), but OConnor, with a pro style that Dantonio favors, might hold the edge.Indiana Hoosiers: Defensive line?Moving from a three to a four-man front will be challenging, especially after the loss of four of the top five D-linemen. With three starts in 2015, senior Ralph Green III has the most experience and might be penciled in as one DT. Junior Robert McCray III will also compete for time inside with Nate Hoff, who had only four tackles as a sophomore after making 29 as a freshman.Maryland Terrapins: Quarterback?The Terps pass game was so bad (37.6 QBR, No. 106 in the FBS) that Maryland all but abandoned it. So those aforementioned 29 picks? Even more mind-boggling considering this wasnt a high-volume passing team (387 attempts, No. 82). Seniors Perry Hills (eight starts) and Caleb Rowe (four) must improve to ward off redshirt freshman Gage Shaffer and incoming freshman Tyrrell Pigrome. Otherwise, this spot breaks wide open.Rutgers Scarlet Knights: Quarterback?Junior Chris Laviano beat out LSU transfer Hayden Rettig last year but was unspectacular: 16 TDs to 12 INTs. A new staff brings fresh competition. While Rettig boasts the bigger arm, Rutgers offensive shift from pro-style to power spread (think Ohio State) might favor the slightly more mobile Laviano.West DivisionNebraska Cornhuskers: Defensive tackle?The heart of the D-line, which helped the Huskers hold opponents to 109.8 rush ypg in 2015 (No. 9 in the FBS), sustained major blows: Maliek Collins and Vincent Valentine declared early for the draft, and senior Greg McMullen, a regular on the edge last year (nine starts at DE, four at DT), ended his career to focus on grad school. Senior Kevin Maurice has experience, but the Huskers could go young with twin redshirt freshmen Carlos and Khalil Davis.Wisconsin Badgers: Quarterback?Senior Bart Houston emerged in Week 8 when he replaced Joel Stave against Illinois and threw for 232 yards and two TDs. His experience may make him better suited to see the Badgers through a tough slate (Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State from the East), but redshirt frosh Alex Hornibrook looks to be the long-term answer. A Pitt decommit and early enrollee in 15, he has a rocket arm and a strong bond with Chryst, who had recruited him since his junior year at Malvern (Pa.) Prep.Iowa Hawkeyes: Outside linebacker?The Hawkeyes stout linebackers helped bottle up big runs last year (only 11 rushes of 20-plus yards allowed, T8 in the Power 5). Iowas second-leading tackler, weakside LB Cole Fisher, departs, but juniors Ben Niemann and Bo Bower return to duke it out at strongside. Niemann started all 14 games last year, but Bower contributed (15 tackles) and also brings starting experience (13 games in 14).Northwestern Wildcats: Cornerback?Northwestern loses four-year starter Nick VanHoose, but the Cats are so flush with potential subs that they moved two corners elsewhere -- junior Marcus McShepard to receiver and sophomore Parrker Westphal to safety. Veteran CB Matthew Harris (a senior with 27 career starts) will man one side, and Keith Watkins II and Montre Hartage will vie to line up opposite him. Opposing QBs will avoid Harris (4 INTs, 13 passes broken up in 15), so the Watkins-Hartage competition is pivotal.Minnesota Golden Gophers: Linebacker?Cody Poock and Jack Lynn return as entrenched veterans (18 combined starts in 15), but the Gophers must fill the outside spot vacated by third-leading tackler DeVondre Campbell. They have ample options-linebacker is one of Minnesotas deepest units-with the top candidates being junior Jonathan Celestin and senior Nick Rallis, who combined for 61 tackles and 7 TFLs last year.Purdue Boilermakers: Offensive line?Purdues goal for the trenches in 2016: Field a lineup. Woes up front last year-lack of size, minimal push-resulted in 30 sacks (T84 in the FBS) and 131.3 rush ypg (No. 108). The Boilermakers lost their two best blockers from 15, and though senior OGs Jordan Roos and Jason King return, and Martesse Patterson and Cameron Cermin look likely for tackle, the hole at center looks more like an abyss.Illinois Fighting Illini: Defensive end?Before the coaching shuffle, Illinois added Auburn graduate transfer Gimel President to the roster. President started nine games for the Tigers in 2014 before getting demoted to a reserve role last season, so look for the transplant to compete with senior D-linemen Dawuane Smoot and Carroll Phillips to provide a pass-rush boost. Smoot rang up eight sacks last year, but the rest of the Illini combined for only 11. Marqise Lee Jersey . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. Nick Foles Youth Jersey . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. FORT WORTH, Texas -- Jamie Dixon didnt even notice that he wasnt introduced before his coaching debut at his alma mater, TCU.He was a little caught up in the fun, weird, strange, different, as he called it in coming back to the school he helped lead as a player to its most recent NCAA Tournament win almost 30 years ago.And before an 82-64 win over the NAIAs St. Thomas on Friday night, Dixon was coming to grips with the fact that he really had left Pittsburgh , where he was head coach the past 13 seasons and on the staff for 17.Seventeen years is a long time, and you only have one way, Dixon said. It just feels so different. Its home, but the arenas so different. I think walking in before was probably the time it really hit me. I think that was it, walking in and walking by the football stadium and walking through here.All that emotion, and no introduction? No welcome home?Maybe thats a tradition here, Dixon said as he chuckled. You guys are laughing. Maybe thats a tradition here. They dont introduce the coach. I dont know. Talk to (athletic director Chris) Del Conte. Hes in charge of that. I think he wanted to introduce it himself.Alex Robinson, a Texas A&M transfer making his debut for the Horned Frogs, led them with 16 points. Karviar Shepherd, one of the holdovers from former coach Trent Johnsons staff, had 14 points and six rebounds.Freshman point guard Jaylen Fisher, the top recruit in Dixons first class, finished with 13 points, seven assists, four steals and a blocked shot to help the Horned Frogs pull away in the second half.This is an exciting year, Shepherd said. New coaches, (Dixon) coming back, alumni, weve got new guys coming in, freshmen. Every years exciting to me, and this years no different.The Celts (0-4) stayed close until the closing minutes of the first half, which endedd with a spinning, buzzer-beating layup from Fisher for a 45-37 lead. Josh Oliver Youth Jersey. Josh Bearden scored 14 points to lead St. Thomas.DOUBLE THE FUNTCU had six players in double figures. Freshman Desmond Bane and Brandon Parrish, another senior holdover, had 12 apiece. JD Miller had 10 points and seven rebounds, which matched St. Thomas Paris Marquez for the game high.SHOOTING EFFICIENCYShepherds 14 points came on just six shots, with four makes, and he was 5 of 6 on free throws. Robinson was 7 of 11 from the field and made all five attempts inside the 3-point line.LONG-RANGE PLANMore than half of St. Thomas field goal attempts were from 3-point range. The Celts were 9 of 29 from beyond the arc and 23 of 53 overall.BIG PICTURESt. Thomas: It was a decent showing for second-year coach Anthony Medinas team. The Celts were within four (41-37) as late as the 1:16 mark of the first half before fading.TCU: Fishers debut was a positive for Dixon. The 6-foot-2 floor leader from suburban Memphis had committed to UNLV before coach Dave Rice was fired last April. Former Rebels assistant Ryan Miller, who is on Dixons staff, had recruited him. The capper on his strong all-around debut was a block from behind when Bearden was going up for a wide-open layup or dunk.UP NEXT:St. Thomas: The Celts will return to Fort Worth to face Texas Wesleyan on Wednesday. There are some other upper-division challenges coming, including Southern on Thanksgiving Day.TCU: The Horned Frogs have three more home games they should win against Alabama State, Jacksonville State and Illinois State before playing at UNLV on Nov. 25. TCU will play either Western Kentucky or Washington the next day in Las Vegas. ' ' ' 
An ALDS rematch between the Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays promises to provide plenty of drama after the bad blood left over from last Octobers bat flip and this springs brawl, but which club has an edge, starting with a Game 1 showdown between Marco Estrada and Cole Hamels?Go inside the numbers and matchups that will decide Thursday nights game, and then vote for which team will win at the bottom of the page. Connor Williams Womens Jersey .Inside the pitching matchupWhen Estrada is on the mound: Estrada proved that his 2015 season wasnt a fluke as he made the All-Star team and led the AL in fewest hits allowed per nine innings for a second straight year. He did struggle in August and early September as he has had to pitch through a herniated disk in his back, but he finished strong with only two runs allowed over 19 innings in his final three outings.Estradas four-seam fastball averages 88-89 mph, which tells you a bit about where his changeup, the pitch on which he makes his living, comes in. Thrown 75-78 mph, its a pitch Estrada has the ability to manipulate to both side of the plate, so its moving away from lefties on the outside corner and away from righties on the outside corner to them as well. Batters hit just .159 against with a 32 percent strikeout rate in plate appearances ending with the pitch, an 11 percent increase from last year. Another reason for Estradas improvement from his Milwaukee days is the addition of a cutter that he now throws 12 percent of the time.Estrada is the opposite of teammate Marcus Stroman, who had the highest ground-ball rate among qualified starters. Estrada had the second-highest fly-ball rate, which is a reason why his BABIP is so low. The way to beat him is to hope one or two of those fly balls leave the park. -- David SchoenfieldWhen Hamels is on the mound:?The veteran lefty is making his 16th career postseason start, so he already knows all about the ramped-up intensity of playoff baseball. His changeup, once regarded as the best in the game, wasnt as dominant this year as batters hit .252/.311/.430 against it -- the third season in a row theyve increased their damage against the pitch after Hamels held them to a .154 average and .417 OPS in 2013. He still does a great job locating pitches down and away from right-handed batters, but its not the strikeout pitch it was a few years ago.As a result, he threw the changeup less often than ever, under 20 percent of time, and he now throws his cutter -- a pitch he didnt have when he was a World Series hero for the Phillies in 2008 -- about 21 percent of the time. Its a great pitch to get inside on right-handed batters, who hit only .217 against it, although with some power (six home runs in 129 at-bats).Hamels had a four-start stretch near the end of the season where he gave up 21 runs in 18 innings before finishing with seven shutout innings against the As and giving up five runs in seven innings against the Brewers. Hamels did have a notable platoon split this year with righties posting an OPS 117 points higher, so matching up against that right-handed Toronto power will be a fun challenge. -- SchoenfieldPlayer in the spotlightRougned Odor:? Odor led the Rangers with 33 home runs and punches that landed on Jose Bautista. He had one of the most distinctive seasons in major league history, however, as he walked only 19 times against 135 strikeouts. Jeff Banister has been hitting him fifth, behind Adrian Beltre, so given Beltres season-long clutch hitting, look for the Jays to pitch to him carefully and go after Odor and his ultra-aggressive approach. -- SchoenfieldWhat will decide tonights gameAmong players to see at least 100 fastballs with similar vertical movement and spin rate to Marco Estradas, Rougned Odors .462 batting average was highest in MLB (12 hits in 26 at-bats). Odors five homers against such pitches were most among second basemen and tied for fourth-most among all players in MLB. --?ESPN Stats & InfoChoosing sides: Who will win? The Toronto Blue Jays spent the night guzzling champagne and celebrating after their dramatic win over the Baltimore Orioles in the wild-card game before flying to Texas for the ALDS. They expended a lot of emotional energy dispatching the Orioles and used Marcus Stroman in the process. Now, all they have to do is beat Cole Hamels, who has a 3.03 ERA in 15 career postseason starts, and the best team in the AL, which happens to be 53-28 at Globe Life Park. -- Jean-Jacques Taylor I dont expect the bad blood to spill over into a 15-round fight between Jose Bautista and Rougned Odor. One, I think Bautista would win in fewer rounds. Two, the two teams should contain their emotions and focus on the game. It should be a tight series, but I look for Toronto to win Game 1 because they have been playing at an intense level to keep their season alive the past couple of weeks while the Rangers possibly could have lost a little rhythm after clinching so early. They also were 4-3 against Texas this season. -- Jim CapleWhere the series standsThe Rangers have the home-field advantage, which could be vital considering their 53-28 record at home (although the road team won four games when this teams met in last years division series). The Rangers would obviously love to take both games at home, but it might be even more imperative given the Game 3 pitching matchup (Colby Lewis versus Aaron Sanchez) favors the Blue Jays.?--?Schoenfield Troy Aikman Jersey .

The announcement of the Cruiserweight Classic in March brought a lot of curiosity and interest from wrestling fans around the world, but once the full field of 32 competitors was locked in, the bar of expectation was raised to a near unrealistic level. One big question loomed over everything: Which of these elite-level talents would ultimately be crowned the first CWC winner?After 10 weeks of matches that, at times, far exceeded those lofty expectations, Wednesday nights two-hour finale capped the inaugural Cruiserweight Classic with three matches to be remembered. After dispatching his third consecutive heavy fan favorite in Kota Ibushi in the semifinals, T.J. Perkins completed his run to victory by defeating Gran Metalik.This is probably the best representation, I think, of our division, that weve ever had, said Perkins of the Cruiserweight Classic. I grew up watching Super J Cups and other tournaments like that -- they had a mystique about them, but they were few and far between. I was so thrilled with how everything that came about, and then to be a part of it, its insane.Perkins, who recently turned 32, is a California native who represented the Philippines in the CWC. During the course of the 10-week tournament, Perkins defeated Da Mack, Johnny Gargano and Rich Swann to earn his spot in the semifinals.In addition to the custom-made CWC trophy, Perkins was also crowned with the WWE cruiserweight championship, with Triple H walking out to the ring just prior to the CWC finals to reveal the brand new title.From the moment the bell rang at the end, all I could think about was everything I went through to get here, Perkins said. Collecting coins in the parking lot when I was homeless, being evicted and all these different things. I think it was at that moment, with Triple H and Mr. Regal [raising my hand] that I started thinking about all my heroes, and when they got their moments.Perkins will compete with Metalik, as well as a number of other CWC competitors including Gargano, Swann, Tommaso Ciampa, Cedric Alexander and Brian Kendrick in Raws cruiserweight division starting Monday, Sept. 19.Ibushi and Zack Sabre Jr., the fourth semifinalist, both appear destined to continue their wrestling careers elsewhere for the time being, however. Although, Sabre Jr. has indicated a certain level of interest in joining WWE and NXT in particular in the future.As the curtain drops on this groundbreaking tournament, lets take a look back at three matches that wrapped up the action Wednesday night.Semifinal: Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Gran MetalikThe opening match of the semifinals started off with a bang, as Gran Metalik hit a running dropkick that sent Zack Sabre Jr. out of the ring. He followed it up with a tope con hilo and, after tossing Sabre Jr. back into the ring, finished it off with a springboard senton to get an early two-count.Because of this introduction, and Metaliks in-ring style, there was an immediate intensity, pace and sense of the stakes to this match. Each competitor looked to impose their in-ring style, and when Sabre Jr. took control, he brought the pace way down and wrestled his kind of match up close and tight, with submissions and strikes. Metalik picked the pace back up as he hit some more of his signature offense, and he benefited whenever there was separation, as highlighted in the moment by Daniel Bryan on commentary.Sabre Jr. showed off his incredible repertoire of submissions, even more so than in his previous three matches, but Metalik pulled out quite a few of his own to build a nice balance in the match. The match wasnt simply about death-defying top-rope moves from Metalik, or gruesome-looking submissions from Sabre Jr., though. There were brutal kicks, violent open-handed chops and European uppercuts, not to mention two different sequences of exchanging strikes while both were on their knees.A springboard head scissors from Metalik as Sabre Jr. straddled the top rope proved to be the spot of the match. The momentum shifted back and forth several times in the late stages, and at two different points it looked as though Sabre Jr. had submissions locked in with Metalik nearly finished. One of Sabres Jr.s numerous variations of the Octopus stretch ended only as Metalik dove for the ropes, and a triangle with an additional arm submission had to be rolled over into a pinfall attempt.The match ended suddenly and dramatically, as Metalik caught Sabre Jr. as he ran for a yet another European uppercut and quickly struck with his patented Metalik driver to swiftly secure his spot in the final. His run ended in this tournament, and with WWE-related programming for the time being, but with the shows he put on during his four-match stretch in the CWC, it would be a shame if we dont get to see a full-time run in NXT or the WWE in some fashion from Zack Sabre Jr. in the near-future.Semifinal: Kota Ibushi vs. T.J. PerkinsThere was a decidedly slower pace to start the second semifinal match, with Perkins grabbing the ropes several times as he sought relief from Ibushis attacks. Each time Ibushi was backed off, he fired off a kick that Perkins responded to by lifting his own leg and checking the blow. Perkins got in a fair bit of offense early on, but the vast majority of it came as a counter-measure as Perkins used Ibushis own momentum and offense against him, targeting the neck early on.After failing the first time he tried it, Ibushi hit his Golden Triangle springboard moonsault to the outside and added a seemingly countless series of dropkicks for good measure. Perkins got his leg up to kick a charging Ibushi in the corner, triggered the first major sequence of the match. Perkins charged back and got a powerslam for his troubles; Ibushi quickly did a front roll and hopped up onto the second rope for a moonsault, but Perkins got his knees up and immediately slapped on a kneebar. Ibushi broke things up by scrambling to the ropes.Unlike the pace of the first match, which was a hot and cold style that worked for Sabre Jr. and Gran Metalik, this match was all about building momentum toward a finish that would pay off for all of the patience that fans had to invest over the course of nearly 20 minutes. Things took a definitive step towards raising the level of energy as Ibushis Golden star powerbomb was reverseed into a DDT by Perkins, followed immediately by a chicken-wing gutbuster that got a two-and-three-quarters count for Perkins. Robert Newhouse Womens Jersey. second kneebar attempt by Perkins saw Ibushi roll it over into a cover, and with that Ibushi made his push for victory. They went punch-for-punch and kick-for-kick, and after gaining a slight edge, Ibushi swiftly picked up and planted Perkins with the same Golden Star powerbomb that had ended the tournament runs of Sean Maluta, Alexander and Kendrick. 1... 2... No!The crowd and Ibushi alike stood stunned at Perkins kicked out in a spot in which nobody had previously survived. Ibushi climbed once more to the top rope, but missed a phoenix splash with Perkins crawling over for a near-fall. Perkins nearly locked in the kneebar for a third time, with Ibushi countering a roll-through attempt into a crazy looking wheelbarrow sitdown. A sharp kick to Perkins head and a final attempt at hitting another Golden Star powerbomb led to a successful roll-through and a kneebar, with an added twist. Perkins reached forward and wrenched Ibushis neck back with the knee already barred up, eventually forcing a submission.I was a really big fan of Kota Ibushi prior to this [tournament], said Perkins. I traveled a little bit with him, and Im even more of a fan after the fact. Hes every bit as elite and world-class as hes perceived to be -- especially after getting in there with him. Its like when you see two boxers getting into the ring for the first time and they wonder what its like to exchange with that other guy when theres this mystique about him. When I got in there, I saw why hes [considered to be] world class.Ibushis first big foray into the United States, after sporadic appearances in the previous decade, led to a number of classic matches in his journey to the semifinals. As Ibushi continues to insist on remaining a free agent for the foreseeable future, all that can be hoped for is that he eventually commits to a company like WWE or even New Japan Pro Wrestling down the line -- providing the proper stage for a talent thats as gifted as Ibushi.Final: T.J. Perkins vs. Gran MetalikThe energy and noise generated by the crowd at Full Sail University was palpable as Perkins and Gran Metalik made their entrances -- and the addition of Triple H to that equation only served to further raise the fervor of the fans.Metalik wrestled a much different kind of match this time out, and Perkins is to thank for that. As noted on commentary, Perkins background and initial training were in lucha libre, and the finals match certainly reflected the strength of both competitors in that discipline of wrestling.Stylistically, that was kind of a dream final match for me, said Perkins. It sort of added to the backstory, for people who followed the narrative closely, that Gran Metalik was a student at CMLL when I was there as a teenager and in main events and big time matches. I used to see him in the gym all the time as he was coming up. We also shared locker rooms in Japan as he was becoming a superstar at that time. Ive seen him get up to this point, and [kept track of me] as hes caught up to meGran Metalik once again put his submission skills on display, with an early reverse pendulum lock, then a Muta lock to wear an already-fatigued Perkins down further.As Perkins tried to climb up the apron, Gran Metalik hit a dropkick to the knee to send him flying to the outside, directly into a full blown sprint and a tope suicida that connected with Perkins chin. Metalik continued to utilize his tightrope walk along the top rope as well, hitting Perkins with a springboard senton to further beat him down.Metalik showed why his highest spots had captivated fans throughout the tournament, and should continue to do so going forward on Raw. He hurtled the top rope to hit a frankensteiner to Perkins, who once again was standing on the apron, and was deposited both men on the outside.Perkins finally started to control Metalik for the first time and slipped on a kneebar, but Metalik crawled to the ropes to save himself. Both men brutalized each other with strikes, and Perkins got the worst of it with open-handed slaps to the chest that left deep red welts that were apparent even after the match ended. Perkins tried to set Metalik up for the kneebar again with his firemans carry drop into a kick, but it was reversed into a DDT by Metalik for a two-count.A second kneebar by Perkins saw Metalik reaching for the ropes again, and Perkins attempted to finish off the match by pulling his opponent back into the middle of the ring. He failed to lock it in by crossing the leg over, however, and Metalik rolled it over for a two-count.This effort by Perkins took its toll, as Metalik clutched at his knee. When presented the opportunity for a victory of his own, Gran Metalik hit a less-than-perfect Metalik driver due to his injury for only a two-count after a weak cover. After going back and forth with some acrobatic lucha libre exchanges, including a springboard dropkick by Perkins to Metalik on the apron, the match turned once more as Metalik positioned Perkins for an avalanche Metalik driver on the top rope.His hampered knee came back to haunt him one too many times, however, and this story reached its end as Perkins countered directly into a third kneebar. This time he crossed his leg over to lock in the submission hold and maximize his leverage -- ultimately clinching victory and the tournament title.In reflecting upon his victory and journey in this tournament, Perkins pointed out the potential effects an event of this scope and magnitude might have that go well beyond the advent of a Raw cruiserweight division.So much of what I do has been based off of my heroes and guys Ive watched come up, said Perkins. Most of them started out as cruiserweights. Thats what kind of inspired me to do this. Its [crazy to think] that theres probably some kid out there thats going to come to the Performance Center one day, or enroll in some wrestling training and get started on the regional level whos going to look at this tournament and say thats why I wanted to do it. Thats really incredibly humbling, to be honest. ' ' '

Sydney FC coach Graham Arnold has declared Bernie Ibini ready to start against Melbourne City following his sparkling second-half Newcastle cameo.In just his second A-League appearance since a training-ground injury snuffed out his European dream before it had even started, Ibini made a compelling case for his first competitive start in 18 months.Introduced on the hour mark of Sundays 2-0 victory, the 24-year-old injected much-needed attacking spark and scored a nifty solo goal that shut down the Jets hopes of a revival.The effort - a quickfire evasion of two defenders followed by two shots at goal - hinted at what his power and pace could bring should the Sky Blues struggle to penetrate City at ANZ Stadium on Friday night, as they did in last weeks FFA Cup final.It leaves Arnold with an intriguing selection headache for the top-of-table-clash after the coach refused to guarantee his marquees, fellow winger Filip Holosko and striker Bobo, will return to the first XI.Asked when Ibini would be ready to return to start, Arnold said: Friday.Hes got to be in contention after that (performance), Arnold said.Ill decide on Thursday after I see how hes pulled up.Whether he starts or comes off the bench, what he did on Sunday is going to put fear iinto every defender, especially if he comes on in the last half hour with that pace and quality hes got.

PHILADELPHIA -- Six weeks into the season, the Flyers and Bruins are looking like a pair of teams who could battle it out for one of the two wild card playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.Theyll battle it out for the first time this season Tuesday night when the Bruins visit South Philadelphia.Weve got to scratch and claw every night right now, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol told the Philadelphia Inquirer of his 10-10-3 team. Were a .500 hockey team and it seems like weve talked about that quite a lot. We can keep talking about it, or we can worry about doing something about it.The Flyers will play eight games in the next 13 days and 13 games in the 24-day stretch leading up to their Christmas break. They are looking to string together their first two-game win streak since early November when they won three straight.This is a critical stretch between now and the Christmas break, Hakstol said. Thats about as big picture as I want to get, and we absolutely have to narrow it down a lot further than that -- right down to the points that are available against Boston.The Bruins (12-10-0) are coming off Sundays 4-1 home win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, which snapped a three-game losing streak. Forward Jimmy Hayes recorded his first point in 36 games with his first goal since Feb. 24.He was so relieved by the goal that he threw an imaginary monkey off his back in celebration.It was more of a joke that it was an elephant, Hayes told CSN New England. I think I lost about a hundred pounds there.The four goals against the Lightning matched the total the Bruins had scored during their three-game losing streak.Goaltender Tuukka Rask came within 2:39 of aa shutout in the win, stopping 30 shots to improve his record to 12-4-0 and lower his GAA to 1. Wholesale Shoes Authentic. 3.Tuukka has had to keep the Bruins afloat this season because of a shortage of offense. Aside from the top-line forwards David Patrnak (team-high 13 goals, 17 points) and Brad Marchand (six goals, 19 points) the Bruins have struggled to produce this season, ranking 20th with 52 goals. Through 19 games Patrice Bergeron has just three goals and three assists.The Flyers have had no trouble putting up goals. They rank second behind the Rangers with 72 goals, led by Wayne Simmonds (11) and Jakub Voracek (eight).But theyve allowed an NHL-worst 76 goals, including three by rookie goalie Anthony Stolarz in a 5-3 win Sunday night against the Calgary Flames.The Flyers allowed the first goal in that game and have scored first in just eight of their 23 games. They are 5-1-2 when scoring first and 5-9-1 when they dont.Goaltender Steve Mason (5-8-3, 3.04) is expected to return to action Tuesday night. Hes lost three of his last four starts and is 2-3-1 since Michael Neuvirth suffered a knee sprain.The Bruins could be without a pair of veteran defensemen against the Flyers.Zdeno Chara has missed the past three games with a lower body injury and is not expected to play Tuesday night. Bruins defenseman John-Michael Liles left Sundays game with an upper-body injury after sliding head first into the end boards. Hes questionable for Tuesday and if he cannot play the Bruins likely will recall a defenseman from AHL Providence. ' ' '

MONTREAL -- It took a goal from the penalty spot by Patrice Bernier to spare the Montreal Impact from crashing to a second straight defeat at home. Brian Propp Flyers Jersey . The veteran midfielders goal in the 80th minute gave the Impact a 1-1 MLS draw with lowly Chivas USA on Sunday night. The Impact (9-4-4) lead the Eastern Conference with 31 points, but are 0-1-2 in their last three games, including a 4-3 loss to Colorado in their previous home game last week. "Its not our greatest period, but these things happen," said Bernier. "We have to refocus, regroup, and find some energy. "We have some tough games coming up and that will be a good challenge." Eric Avila, recently returned from a trial with Mexican club Guadalajara, scored for Chivas (3-10-4), the last-place team in the Western Conference. Chivas has gone 13 games without a win dating to a 2-1 victory over Vancouver on March 30. On paper, they were easy pickings for Montreals high-powered attack, which leads the league despite having played fewer games than most MLS clubs. But on the field, Chivas played a thorough and patient defensive game while the Impact wasted several good chances. "Its nice to come back and get a point," added Bernier. "In the end these little points will count. "But we wasted enough chances that we could have had a two-goal lead. But thats football." Chivas opened a three-game road trip with a 0-0 draw in Dallas and will be looking to add more points when they visit Toronto FC on Wednesday night. Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy, who stopped Marco Di Vaio and Felipe Martins on early point-blank chances, sees his team getting stronger under new coach Jose Luis Real. "We knew this would be a tough game and we came prepared and we put in a smart performance," said Kennedy. "We didnt leave ourselves too vulnerable. "We stayed compact and limited their chances. It was a great point for us." Bernier used his signature stutter-step move to score from the spot after Mario De Luna took down Sanna Nyassi on the left edge of the penalty area. The Impact have struggled on defence, allowing eight goals in their last three outings, and it surfaced once again as low-scoring Chivas got the first goal in the 55th minute. After Hassoun Camara lost the ball near the halfway line, a Jose Correa cross into the middle looked to put Montreal in panic mode. Jorge Villafana blasted a left-footed shot off the bar and Avila was there to put in the rebound from the edge of the penalty area. It was the one setback in an otherwise better defensive performance than their last two outings. And it was their second comeback draw in a row after tying 3-3 in Toronto during the week. Coach Marco Schallibaum called it a good effort and added "the balance was better today. "There are no easy games in this league. We had a lot of good chances but the goalie made some god saves. We are also missing some of the lucky punch we had before. But we went for the win at the end." Montreal outshot Chivas 18-8, including 8-3 in shots on goal. Substitute Andrew Wenger had two good chances in the dying minutes, but put one shot just wide and the other was stopped by Kennedy.

EUGENE, Ore. -- New Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall is urging patience as the Cavaliers are rebuilt.A trip to No. 24 Oregon certainly might strain it.After a disappointing season-opening loss to lower-tier Richmond, the Cavaliers (0-1) make the 2,800-mile trip to Eugene to face the Ducks (1-0) on Saturday night.Virginias 37-20 loss to the Spiders last weekend was made worse by the fact that it happened at home, spoiling Mendenhalls debut.I think they were as hopeful as anyone that this would be an immediate turnaround, he said. But its going to take time. And how much Im not certain. But I am positive that it will happen and that the scheme, strategy and coaches that are here will be able to pull that off. Lots and lots of work ahead, steep learning curve still to come.Along that steep curve is the stop at Autzen Stadium, known for its inhospitable noise, and a late start time (10:30 p.m. ET). Then there are the Ducks themselves, who beat UC Davis 53-28 in their opener last weekend.Oregon racked up 522 yards of total offense (271 passing and 251 on the ground), ranking the Ducks third in the Pac-12.That doesnt bode well for the Cavaliers, who allowed 524 in Richmonds third win in 33 meetings between the two teams.I have a simple statement that comes from a book, and it simply says, `The only way out is through, Mendenhall said. We have significant tests coming up that we have to go through, and thats going to season our team, its going to shape our team, its going to mold our team, its going to unite our team. But its also going to expose the things that need to be exposed for us to grow and get better.Mendenhall won 99 games in 11 seasons at BYU before taking over Virginia, which hasnt been to a bowl game since 2011.Other things to watch when Oregon hosts Virginia:GRADUATE TRANSFERS: Oregon and Virginia feature graduate-transfer starting quarterbacks who were solid in their first outings. Oregons Dakota Prukop, who came from Montana State, threw for 271 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for another in the victory over UC Davis. Kurt Benkert, who transferred to Virginia from EEast Carolina, threw for 264 yards and three touchdowns but had an interception. Shayne Gostisbehere Flyers Jersey. FIRST-GAME FUMBLES: Virginia lost three fumbles in its opener, including two by senior tailback Taquan Mizzell. Mendenhall took responsibility, saying Mizzell was held out of scrimmages and wasnt tackled live in fall camp. In hindsight, the coach said he might have handled it differently.Oregon receiver and special teams standout Charles Nelson also uncharacteristically fumbled twice for turnovers in Oregons opener.I had the first-game jitters. I just took my eye off the ball for a second and fumbled it, Nelson said. Second time, I just tried to make extra yards. I should have run out of bounds. I had the ball in the wrong hand, and the other guy made a great play.GOIN BACK TO CALI: Virginia went west last season, visiting then-No. 13 UCLA and returning home with a 34-16 loss. The Cavaliers are 0-6 against the Pac-12, and their last win west of the Mississippi came in 1999 when they beat BYU 45-40 in Provo.Its an out-of-conference game, so I feel like what we did last season going over to California and playing UCLA, I feel like we went into that game with a lot of momentum and just thinking that `We can do this Even though we ... didnt win that game, but I feel like this year its going to be the same way with a different outcome, Virginia running back Albert Reid said.DUCK DOMINANCE: Oregon visited Virginia and Scott Stadium back in 2013. Future Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota, then in his second year as starter for the Ducks, passed for 199 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for another 122 yards and a TD in the 59-10 Oregon win.UNIFORMS? OF COURSE!: It really wouldnt be a fall weekend without the introduction of a new Oregon uniform . The model for Virginia is all yellow with what appears to be a stylized wing motif on the shoulders. Matte black helmets with a Duck logo complete the ensemble. Oregon footballs Twitter account called the look swift lightning. ' ' ' 
LeBron James will not travel to Memphis for Clevelands only appearance there this season and hes offering no apologies for it. Danny Ings Liverpool Jersey .Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue left behind James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love for Wednesdays rematch of the home-and-home series against the Grizzlies.Irving was fighting tired legs in the Cavs win Saturday, so Lue elected to give him a full week off between games. James and Love will also stay home to rest, severely crippling the roster of the defending champions lone trip to Memphis.My coach wants me to rest, I dont buck my coach. Thats what he wants and thats what were gonna do, James said after the Cavs beat the Grizzlies 103-86 on Tuesday in Cleveland. Ive been in this league 14 years. I shouldnt have to explain me sitting out a game or not playing games.Ive played in every arena, including Seattle thats no longer here. Its not like its my first year. Ive got 14 years. Ive paid my dues and more than a lot of guys in this league. But Ill ride with my coach.With all three stars sitting, Lue said he would start DeAndre Liggins, Iman Shumpert and James Jones alongside regular starters J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson. Lue couldve broken up the rest and sat James or Love for the home game and played one of them on the road, but instead decided to push all in to give the Cavs the best possible chance to win at least one of these two games.Were home to play in front of our fans. With two of the Big Three I know we can win that game, Lue said. It will be hard to go down and travel, and to ask one person to try to carry the team, especially the way our offense runs.The Grizzlies wont complain about the lack of stars on the other side. They rested All-Star center Marc Gasol, the reigning Western Conference player of the week, for similar reasons during Tuesdays loss, which ended their six-game winning streak. Gasol is expected to play Wednesday.This was kind of marked on the calendar for a while, Grizzlies coach David Fizdale said. We knew this stretch was coming with this back-to-back and we were going to have to make some decisions.The Grizzlies will likely be without rookie center Deyonta Davis, who injured his left foot Tuesday and did not return. Fizdale said he doesnt believe the injury is serious, but Davis will likely miss some time as a result.The decisions by both franchises to rest their stars will exacerbate the league-wide debate about how teams are handling back-to-back scenarios. The league is working proactively to eliminate as many as possible, but for now, teams continue to respond the way the Cavs and Grizzlies did this week. Lue said he expects those who are playing to compete.This is where guys get a chance to get some extended minutes and see how they really are, he said. If they can crack the rotation or, if we need them, can they play? For me its just giving other guys opportunities. Divock Origi Liverpool Jersey . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. Dominic Solanke Jersey . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged. . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. Greater Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron is confident Lachie Whitfields finals performances wont be affected by an ongoing AFL investigation.The midfielder is alleged to have spent a night last year at club welfare manager Craig Lamberts house for fear of being drug tested at his own home, with the knowledge of then football chief Graeme Allan.Avoiding ASADA drug testers carries heavy penalties for players found guilty, but Cameron said Whitfield and the rest of his squad were handling the situation well before Saturdays qualifying final against Sydney.I said during the week its not ideal, Cameron told Triple M on Saturday.But it hasnt affected our training at all. You look at it and theres no doubt at any footy club youre going to get around a player that has an issue and ... our players have responded that way.But Lachies trainings actually been ... just exceptional. I dont think its going to affect him - Im really confident.Wed be silly not to weigh all that up but Im really confident that hell spit out the end of next weeks training and play for us next Saturday.ASADA announced on Friday the investigation wwas back in the AFL integrity units hands following a league briefing. Adam Lallana Liverpool Jersey. On 1 September, the AFLs Integrity Department briefed ASADA on their investigation into the conduct of a current listed player of the GWS Giants Football Club and two former members of staff of that club, an ASADA statement read.A copy of the investigators report was provided to ASADA at that meeting.The matter remains with the AFL for the next steps to be determined and the AFL will now seek legal opinion on this matter.ASADA will be consulted once this process is complete.Lambert has since moved on to a similar role at Brisbane, while Allan was recently appointed general manager of football at Collingwood.With the progress of their lengthy investigation having been ticked off by ASADA, the AFL will look to bring a swift conclusion to the matter.ASADA is satisfied that the next steps remain with the AFL, a league statement read.The AFL will seek further legal opinion before consulting again with ASADA.
