LAS VEGAS -- Team USAs journey to the Olympics starts Friday when it plays Argentina in a friendly, in which it will most likely win their 64th consecutive game. Calgary Flames Pro Shop .It has now been nearly 10 full years since the Americans lost a game in international competition, a winning streak that started in 2006 with a victory over Argentina in the bronze medal game of the World Championships outside Tokyo. And it has now been nearly 10 years since the lowest moment of coach Mike Krzyzewskis career when Team USA was upset by Greece the game before in the world semifinals.The house had burned down. We were disheveled, depressed, ashamed, Krzyzewski said this week. It was depressing. For me, the biggest disappointment in my coaching career was that game ... you have the honor to coach your national team and it was the end. I apologized to [Team USA managing director] Jerry [Colangelo].That has made this Fridays game a bit of a touchstone for Krzyzewski and not just because four of the Argentines from that time are still playing on their national team (Manu Ginobili, Luis Scola, Carlos Delfino and Andres Nocioni). That victory in the bronze medal game may have seemed like a pointless consolation as the Americans failed to win gold in their third straight major event, including the 2004 Olympics. But it was the start of the resurgence that now stands as one of Krzyzewskis greatest accomplishments.Now in his last year as Team USA coach and with his success in the job assured, its given him some time for reflection.That win [over Argentina] was the start for us, Krzyzewski said. It showed us how to recover from adversity.The loss to Greece, in which the team was victimized repeatedly by simple pick-and-roll plays and was often undone by one-on-one style play against a basic zone, still remains as an identifiable blemish. But that comeback win against Argentina, which was the Olympic champion at the time, was perhaps the best win for Team USA since the 2000 Olympics. It happened just 24 hours after the Greece loss as critics at home were still feasting on what looked like another basketball embarrassment.The shock and disappointment was real. We didnt know what to expect in terms of playing the next game, Colangelo said.As we look back now, it was very important. We havent looked back since.During that summer 10 years ago, Krzyzewski was guilty of hubris and it carried over to his team. In his first year on the job hed promised to pay respect to the international game and the non-NBA players whod given the Americans six losses combined in the 2002 World Championships and the 2004 Olympics.Yet he quickly declared that hed never play zone defense despite having zone master Jim Boeheim on his coaching staff. Then during the tournament he sometimes was so unfamiliar with the opponents that he referred to them by jersey number instead of name.The stuff we had done up to that point, we realized we didnt know what we were doing yet and what we were supposed to do, Krzyzewski said. It was a continuation of so-called failure. It wasnt just the game, it was a oh here we go again. I dont think anyone was afraid of what people were going to say, it was what we felt. No one could say anything to make us feel worse.Krzyzewski started LeBron James at point guard in that bronze medal game, his first move in which he realized he needed to give James more responsibility going forward.He worked together with Dwyane Wade, who had one of the best games of his international career that night.Krzyzewski then went through with numerous other changes, including installing a zone defense for use in the FIBA Americas tournament in 2007 and upgrading the scouting to make sure the team was always more prepared for the opposition.Out of adversity comes opportunity, Colangelo said. It was a wake-up call, even though it was just at the beginning of our journey, that no matter how much talent you have on any given night, you dont get much more of a learning experience than that.As the results have shown -- Olympic gold medals in 2008 and 2012 plus World Cup wins in 2010 and 2014 -- the turnaround has worked. Krzyzewski and Colangelo now have the program running with continuity, depth and balance year over year. Despite the gruesome injury to Paul George two years ago and the safety and health concerns surrounding these upcoming Olympics, demand to get on the roster from top players remains robust. And they have an extremely accomplished and respected successor for Coach K lined up in Gregg Popovich, who is preparing to take over coaching duties after Rio.A lot of the initial traction toward all of it started with that bounce-back victory that night at the Saitama Super Arena in 2006.That experience forced us to learn about the environment we wanted to be successful in instead of bringing our environment into there and expecting success, Krzyzewski said. We understood that at that point and we understand it now. Fake Flames Jerseys . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. Flames Jerseys 2020 .S.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Freshman Jalen Hurts threw two touchdown passes to ArDarius Stewart and ran for two more scores, and top-ranked Alabama opened its national championship defense with a 52-6 victory over No. Fausse Air Force 1 Pas Cher . 20 Southern California on Saturday night.Stewart was wide open in the end zone behind the secondary when Hurts hit him for a 39-yard score midway through the second quarter that made it 7-3.Right after halftime, Hurts found Stewart alone near the Alabama 40 and the receiver sprinted up the right sideline untouched for a 71-yard touchdown and a 24-3 lead. USC punter Chris Tilbey bobbled the snap on the ensuing drive to set up Alabama at the Trojans 15 and lead to Hurts TD run.The season-opening win came at AT&T Stadium -- the home of the NFLs Dallas Cowboys -- was also where the Crimson Tide started their 2012 and 2015 national championship seasons with victories.Alabama is 10-0 in season openers under coach Nick Saban.NO. 15 HOUSON 33, NO. 3 OKLAHOMA 23HOUSTON -- Brandon Wilson went end line to end zone for a touchdown with an Oklahoma missed field goal and Houston beat the Sooners, looking every bit ready to compete in the Big 12.Regardless of whether Houston ends up in the Big 12 if the conference expands, coach Tom Hermans Cougars made an opening statement that could have season-long ramifications.Wilson provided the key play in the biggest regular-season nonconference game the Cougars have played in 25 years. When Oklahoma kicker Austin Seiberts 54-yard field goal attempt came up just short, Wilson reached up to catch the ball while barely keeping his feet in bounds. Reminiscent of Auburns Kick Six against Alabama in 2013, Wilson came flying out of the end zone, hit the sideline and hurdled a teammate to score what went into the books as a 100-yard return that made it 26-17 with 8:28 left in the third.Greg Ward Jr. passed for 321 yards and two touchdowns for Houston.Baker Mayfield threw for 323 yards and two scores for Oklahoma.WISCONSIN 16, NO. 5 LSU 14GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Rafael Gaglianone kicked a 47-yard field goal with 3:47 left, and Wisconsin staved off LSUs desperate last-ditch drive.LSUs frustration was on full display at the end of the game, when offensive lineman Josh Boutte was ejected for a flagrant foul after a blind-side hit on Wisconsins DCota Dixon after the safety sealed the victory with an interception with 57 seconds left.Heisman Trophy hopeful Leonard Fournette ran for 138 yards on 23 carries, but limped off on his final carry for LSU, a 15-yard run with less than 2 minutes left.NO. 2 CLEMSON 19, AUBURN 13AUBURN, Ala. -- Deshaun Watson passed for 248 yards, including 174 to Mike Williams in his return from an injury, and Clemson escaped with a victory over Auburn.Clemson struggled to put the away the opener even though Auburn produced little offense for much of the game while swapping three quarterbacks in and out. Finally, Watson hit former walk-on receiver Hunter Renfrow in the back of the end zone on third and goal from the 16 with 9:59 left in the fourth quarter.Ben Boulwares subsequent goal line interception only provided a temporary reprieve for a team that made the national championship game last season. Auburn finally got a touchdown with 3:22 left on a 9-yard direct snap run by Kerryon Johnson and Clemsons failed fourth-down try deep in Auburn territory set up another shot with 40 seconds and 85 yards to go.Sean White drove the offense to the Clemson 40, but two desperation heaves into the end zone fell incomplete, with the second getting batted around.NO. 6 OHIO STATE 77, BOWLING GREEN 10COLUMBUS, Ohio -- J.T. Barrett threw six touchdown passes and Ohio State rolled up a school-record 776 yards against Bowling Green.Eight players scored touchdowns on offense as the Buckeyes overpowered the Falcons in front of a crowd of 107,193 at sunny Ohio Stadium. The 776 yards topped the 718 yards Ohio State put up against Mount Union in 1930.Barrett also set a school record with seven touchdowns overall -- six passing, one running. The junior was 21 for 31 for 349 yards and ran for another 30 in the hurry-up offense before giving way to backup Joe Burrow with 6:30 left in the third quarter.Tailback Mike Weber, a redshirt freshman playing for the first time, bullied his way for 136 yards on 19 carries. H-back Curtis Samuel ran for two touchdowns and caught a TD pass. Thirty Ohio State players played in their first college game.NO. 7 MICHIGAN 63, HAWAII 3ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Wilton Speight threw three touchdown passes in the first half and Michigan beat Hawaii in its most lopsided victory since 1975.Speight threw an interception on his first snap in the Wolverines opener, then bounced back with TD passes to Grant Perry, Jake Butt and Amara Darboh to put Michigan up 21-0 early in the second quarter. Speight, who beat out Houston transfer John OKorn for the job, finished 10 of 13 for 145 yards.The Rainbows (0-2) avoided a shutout with Rigoberto Sanchezs 55-yard field goal early in the fourth.NO. 13 TCU 59, SOUTH DAKOTA STATE 41FORT WORTH, Texas -- Kenny Hill accounted for five touchdowns after a shaky start in his TCU debut, KaVontae Turpin returned a punt 81 yards for a score and the Horned Frogs pulled away late in a victory over South Dakota State.Playing his first game since a 59-0 loss to Alabama that cost Hill the starting job at Texas A&M two years ago, the junior transfer bounced back from interceptions on consecutive passes that led to a 10-point lead for the lower-division Jackrabbits.Turpin started the recovery from the surprising second-quarter deficit with his return, sparking the Frogs to their 15th straight win in a home opener since losing to Northwestern State in Gary Pattersons first season as head coach. The 5-foot-9 speedster added a 33-yard run and had 177 all-purpose yards.Hill was 33 of 49 for 439 yards with two touchdown passes, ran for three scores and converted a critical third down with a 13-yard scramble in the fourth quarter. That drive ended on a 46-yard scoring pass to Taj Williams for a 52-41 lead. Williams had 11 catches for 158 yards.NO. 14 WASHINGTON 48, RUTGERS 13SEATTLE -- Jake Browning threw for 287 yards and three touchdowns, John Ross caught two scoting passses and returned a kickoff for another score in his first game since the end of the 2014 season to help Washington beat Rutgers.The Huskies raced to a 24-0 first-quarter lead and were never threatened by the rebuilding Scarlet Knights, in their first game under new coach Chris Ash.Browning threw for 277 yards and all three scores in the first half as the Huskies built a 34-3 lead. He would have thrown four TDs in the half, but Darrell Daniels dropped a pass in the end zone late in the second quarter.TEXAS A&M 31, NO. 16 UCLA 24 OTCOLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Trevor Knight threw for 239 yards and a touchdown and ran for two more scores, including one in overtime, to lead Texas A&M past UCLA in his debut with the Aggies.The Aggies had a fourth-and-1 from the 1 in overtime when Knight waltzed into the end zone untouched for the score in the opener for both teams. Texas A&M sealed the victory when Justin Evans knocked down Josh Rosens pass at the goal line on fourth down.Knight is a graduate transfer from Oklahoma. Rosen threw three interceptions while working under heavy pressure from a defense led by Myles Garrett.The Aggies looked to have this one wrapped up when they led by 15 in the fourth quarter after using two third-quarter touchdowns. But UCLAs offense finally got going after that, scoring twice in two minutes with the second one coming on a 62-yard pass by Rosen to cut it two 2. A 2-point conversion after that TD tied it with 2:39 left.NO. 17 IOWA 45, MIAMI (OHIO) 21IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Akrum Wadley ran for 121 yards and two touchdowns, LeShun Daniels added 83 yards rushing and two scores, and Iowa beat Miami (Ohio).C.J.

Sanders had 76 all-purpose yards and scored a touchdown. Sanders, whose father, Barry, won the Heisman Trophy for Oklahoma State in 1988, is a graduate transfer who played for Stanford last season.

Ben Scott was 27 of 47 for 303 yards and had a touchdown run for UC Davis.NO. 25 FLORIDA 24, UMASS 7GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Luke Del Rio threw two touchdown passes in his first career start, and Florida beat UMass and extend the nations longest winning streak in season openers to 27.It was far from the offensive resurgence the Gators were hoping for after ending last season with three consecutive losses. Things were so ugly for much of the night that retired coach Steve Spurrier provided most of Floridas early highlights.After having Florida Field named after him and then leading 90,000 rain-soaked fans in a pre-game cheer, Spurrier posed like Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt. The 71-year-old Spurrier flashed Bolts To The World pose to all four sides of the newly renamed Steve Spurrier-Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. It drew a raucous ovation from fans on hand for the opener.Del Rio completed 29 of 44 passes for 256 yards, with TD passes to Antonio Callaway in the first quarter and Brandon Powell in the fourth.

Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010.

Trinbago Knight Riders 165 for 5 (McCullum 49*, Akmal 30, Taylor 2-31) beat St Lucia Zouks 164 for 8 (Fletcher 41, Sammy 40, Beaton 3-23) by five wicketsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsSt Lucia Zouks dreams of a maiden CPL title were ended by defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders, who turned out a clinical batting display in the eliminator at St Kitts to qualify for the second playoff while knocking Zouks out of the competition.Ronsford Beaton and Brendon McCullum played starring roles as Knight Riders kept Zouks to 164, before chasing down the target with five wickets in hand and nine balls to spare.St Lucias innings started strongly and finished strongly, but lost momentum in the middle. After being put in to bat, openers Johnson Charles and Andre Fletcher put on a breezy stand of 62 off 44. They had their share of luck along the way - not only did they benefit from three dropped chances, but Fletcher also survived a close shave in the second over when a Beaton yorker squeezed under his bat and hit the base of the stumps without dislodging the bails. Charles was the more attacking of the two, hitting three fours and two sixes in his 22-ball 31, but it was his dismissal in the eighth over that broke the momentum.It took Zouks 10.1 overs, and the loss of six wickets, to score their next 62. Wickets fell at regular intervals, with Beaton collecting figures of 3 for 23 including two in two in the 18th over. Fletcher, the only batsman to spend appreciable time in the middle during this phase, struggled to find the boundary and ran out of steam to finish with 41 off 43. At the fall of the seventh wicket, Zouks were languishing at 124, with just 15 balls left in the innings. Acheter Tn Pas Cher. However, captain Darren Sammy and Shane Shillingford provided the innings with a late fillip, smashing 40 runs in those last 15 balls, including two sixes each in that period. Knight Riders sloppy fielding cost them dearly, as Sammy and Shillingford were each dropped twice before embarking on their respective six-hitting rampages. Shillingfords two sixes came off the last two balls of the innings, propelling Zouks to 164 and leaving Knight Riders to contemplate a shoddy fielding performance that included seven drops in all.They seemed to have put that behind them by the time the run chase came around, though, with the top three getting the side off to a flying start. Though all three lost their wickets inside the Powerplay, they had helped Knight Riders on to 68 for 3 after six overs, with Umar Akmal scoring 30 off 15.Thereafter, McCullum - who had dropped two catches earlier in the day - steered the innings with an unbeaten 49 off 41. Knight Riders were in cruise control from about halfway through their chase, requiring little over a run a ball as McCullum controlled proceedings. Sunil Narine, coming in at No. 7, ensured that the match did not go into the last over; he hit consecutive sixes off Delorn Johnson* in the 19th and sealed the win with a single past point.Knight Riders now move on to the second playoff, a virtual semi-final, where they will play Jamaica Tallawahs for a berth in the final.*GMT 0730 August 5, 2016: The report had erroneously mentioned Mitchell Johnson. This has now been corrected. ' ' '

I apologize to my family, teammates, Baylor University and our fans for my actions.When Zamora was listed as a starting receiver on the initial depth chart released Monday, acting head coach Jim Grobe said then that he was waiting for university officials before determining discipline after Waco police charged Zamora with a misdemeanor in the animal abuse case.Grobe said Tuesday that the program does not condone that sort of behavior by anyone, and worked with university officials to hold Zamora accountable for his actions.We have received communications about this incident from many passionate individuals over the past 10 days, and I am aware of their concerns, Grobe said. Our goal is for this discipline to be educational and restorative, and I believe that we have taken corrective measures to help Ishmael learn from his actions and to better understand the behavior we demand of all students at the university.Grobe got the Baylor in May after two-time Big 12 champion coach Art Briles was suddenly dismissed following the release of a report alleging that the university mishandled complaints of sexual assault, including some against football players. The schools president and athletic director also left after that.Since arriving, Grobe has said players would be held accountable for any off-field issues. He also promised that university officials would be involved in more serious cases, and that no longer would the football coaches and staff solely handle discipline in such instances.Along with the suspension, Zamora will have to perform 40 community service hours in a manner that will teach him kindness and respect toward animals, undergo counseling and give the dog to an animal-friendly home. He will still be able to practice with the team during his suspension, which starts with Friday nights season opener when the 23rd-ranked Bears host Northwestern State.Baylor, a private Baptist school, doesnt normally comment publicly on matter of student discipline, but said Zamora agreed to the release of the information about his punishment.Eventually, I hope that everyone can see who I really am and that I am not a terrible person, Zamora said. This incident does not and will not define me, and I know that I am the one who will have to prove that to others in the days ahead.

DENVER -- D. Randy Arozarena .J. LeMahieu used irritation as inspiration to work his way back to the big leagues. The Colorado Rockies infielder thought he had done enough in spring training to earn a spot with the team. Instead, he was one of the last players left behind. With anger came a new attitude -- to prove that he indeed belonged. LeMahieu sparkled this spring at Triple-A Colorado Springs and earned a promotion Thursday when the Rockies designated infield Reid Brignac for assignment. In another move, the team placed left-hander Jeff Francis on the 15-day disabled list with a strained groin and recalled right-hander Rob Scahill from Colorado Springs. Manager Walt Weiss said it was a tough decision leaving LeMahieu behind this spring and was hoping he would respond in just this kind of fashion. "He went down there and did his thing and hammered away every day," Weiss said. "I told him he was a major league player and he had every right to be disappointed and to be angry with the decision. I think over the course of a season the dynamics of a team will change. It will somewhat evolve. I think thats happened in a sense with our club. " "The opportunity for D.J. presented itself, on top of the fact that hes done really well down there," Weiss said. LeMahieu took it out on opposing pitchers, hitting .364 with the Sky Sox. He also had one homer, 22 RBIs and 34 runs scored in 33 games. "I was disappointed, yeah," said LeMahieu, who batted .297 in 81 games with Colorado last season. "I think that kind of fueled me a little bit, to play better to show that I deserved to be up here." LeMahieu simply forced the Rockies hand by playing so well in the minors, just like highly touted prospect Nolan Arenado earlier this season. "It was just a matter of D.J. creating an opportunity for himself," said Weiss, who plans to use LeMahieu at second, short and third. "D.J. is playing really well. It didnt really come down to something that Reid hadnt done, but I think it was more D.J. creating an opportunity." Brignac was acquired from Tampa Bay on Feb. 14 and hit .250 in limited action. The Rockies have yet to announce who will take Francis spot in the rotation on Sunday against the San Francisco Giants. Colorado may possibly go with righty Tyler Chatwood or lefty Drew Pomeranz, who are both pitching for the Sky Sox. Francis injured his groin in the second inning of Colorados win against the Cubs in Chicago on Tuesday. He ended up throwing six solid innings and giving up one run. Francis also slid awkwardly into second base in the game, tweaking his right knee, but said that wasnt giving him any trouble. Hes not sure how long the groin will sideline him, but it prevented him from throwing a bullpen session on Thursday. Just when he was finding his form again, too. "Ive been struggling a bit since the first week of the year," said Francis, whos 2-3 with a 6.00 ERA this season. "But to put an outing like that together was very rewarding."

It is a cliché dragged out by fans and pundits regularly when discussions take place around which teams are better than others. HOUSTON -- As the No. 9 Texas A&M Aggies take a break from the rigors of Southeastern Conference to host New Mexico State on Saturday, they are far more worried about improving than they are about their opponent.And thats not simply because theyre 48 1/2-point favorites.Our identity as a team this year is playing the next week, quarterback Trevor Knight said. Its about us and a nameless, faceless opponent. And thats no disrespect to who were playing, but we want to worry about us and play as best we can.The Aggies are looking to rebound after taking their first loss of the season last week in a 33-14 defeat at top-ranked Alabama . Linebacker Justin Evans said its easier to move on from that game since a single loss to the No. 1 team could still give them an outside chance at the College Football Playoff.We know with just one loss we can still do a lot, Evans said. We dont want to look too far ahead, but in the back of our mind we know that were still playing for something so its going to be there.Texas A&M returns to SEC play next week with a trip to Mississippi State before hosting Mississippi on Nov. 12.But first theyll meet New Mexico State for the first time. New Mexico State has had a tough time this season with just two wins and is coming off a 22-19 loss to Georgia Southern.New Mexico State coach Doug Martin knows things will be tough for his offense on Saturday in facing a defense led by Myles Garrett and Daeshon Hall . New Mexico State is tied for 111th in the nation after allowing 21 sacks this season. Texas A&M has piled up 23 sacks, which ranks 12th in the country. Garrett leads the Aggies with four sacks and Hall and Jarrett Johnson have 3 1/2 each. Garrett and Hall have also combined for 18 quarterback hurries.The two defensive ends are first round draft picks so its going to be a real challenge for our offense to move the football, Martin said. But were a pretty good offensive football team so looking forward to that challenge.Some other things to know about the game:RUNNING WILDTexas A&M ranks third in the nation by averaging 251.4 yards rushing a game. The Aggies success has come from splitting carries between freshman Trayveon Williams andd Keith Ford and with quite a bit of help from Knight. Yadier Molina. Williams leads the team with 727 yards rushing and Ford has added 304 yards rushing. Knight has 526 yards rushing and leads the team with nine rushing scores.Ford, who has missed time with an injury this season, impressed coach Kevin Sumlin by leading the team with 62 yards rushing against Alabama.At beginning of year I said wed need all the backs, Sumlin said. All provide change of pace for difference defenses. That was more of a Keith Ford-style of football game and I think you saw that. His experience in those situations showed. Way he runs showed. Physical, tough guy in that situation, a different back than Trayveon.TEAM STRENGTHNew Mexico State has seven different players who have at least 150 yards receiving this season, giving quarterback Tyler Rogers plenty of targets each week. The group is led by Gregory Hogan, who has 26 receptions for 335 yards and three touchdowns and Tyrian Taylor with 304 yards receiving.Our offensive kids have a lot of confidence, Martin said. We have a really good group of wide receivers that can really compete against anybody and it kind of gives us an edge.WE HAVE GOOD RECEIVERS, TOONew Mexico State isnt the only one with a solid group of receivers as the Aggies receivers might be the strength of A&Ms offense. Josh Reynolds has 515 yards receiving and five scores and Christian Kirk also has five touchdowns and has added 410 yards receiving. Ricky Seals-Jones missed two games with an injury before returning last week against Alabama and has 200 yards receiving.I still say thats the best receiving corps in the country, Knight said of A&Ms receivers. And theyve proven that time and time again, and its just getting the ball in their hands and being more consistent.PILING `EM UPNew Mexico State linebacker Rodney Butler leads the nation with 102 tackles. Butler had a season-high 24 tackles against New Mexico on Sept. 10 and has had at least 12 tackles in all but one game this year.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '

CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson isnt dwelling on how the third-ranked Tigers pick up their wins, just as long as they continue to be successful in the end.It has been a frenetic month of mid-game mistakes and lasts-minute rallies for the Tigers (8-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who pulled off their latest escape Saturday night in a 37-34 win at Florida State.Clemson has needed dramatic comebacks in three of its four October games, including in signature wins over No. 5 Louisville and the 19th-ranked Seminoles . In Watsons view, the end justifies the sometimes sloppy means in the Tigers second straight 8-0 start.Players make plays, this is what we are built for, Watson said Monday. We practice this every Wednesday, being down and having the opportunity to win the game.Clemson hopes to start a more dominating run to the finish the regular season, starting with Saturdays home game against Syracuse (4-4, 2-2). The Tigers have beaten 3-0 against the Orange since Syracuse joined the ACC.The Tigers have had their share of heart-stopping finishes so a comfortable victory would be welcomed.Clemson trailed Louisville 36-28 in the fourth quarter before Watson rallied his team for a pair of touchdown drives in the final seven minutes of the 42-36 victory Oct. 1. Two weeks later, the Tigers sweated out a missed, 33-yard field goal by North Carolina State that wouldve won the game to prevail in overtime, 24-17.This time, Clemson was down 28-20 in the third quarter and 34-29 with 3:23 remaining. But Watson and the Tigers responded with an efficient, smooth 75-yard TD drive ended by tight end Jordan Leggetts 34-yard catch and run where he leaped at the end and extended the ball across the goal line before falling out of bounds.Clemsons defense then forced two incompletions and notched two sacks after the Seminoles had advanced inside the Tigers 40 looking for a tying field goal.Im ecstatic about the way weve been able to finish this season, Clemson defensive back Ryan Carter said. Of course, I wish it werent always this close. Adidas Nmd Australia. Leggett ended with five catches for 122 yards, setting a single-game school record for receiving yards. He was named the ACC receiver of the week. Leggetts teammate, guard Tyrone Crowder, was the leagues offense player of the year as he helped Clemsons offense gain 511 yards on Florida State.Clemsons closing stretch features four opponents wholl all be heavy underdogs at pulling off the upset. Syracuse hung with the Tigers a year ago at the Carrier Dome before falling 37-27.Orange coach Dino Babers said the Tigers are a different-level opponent for his team. There are a lot of guys that are going to be millionaires on both sides of the football, offensively and defensively, playing for them, he said.After Syracuse comes Pitt, who Clemson faces Nov. 11 at home. The schools have not met since the Gator Bowl after the 1977 season. Clemson finishes ACC play at Wake Forest, which has not beaten the Tigers since 2008.If Clemson is still undefeated then, it concludes the year with South Carolina, which has lost the past two rivalry games and wont be anyones pick to spoil a second-straight perfect season.We know weve got a target on our backs and were going to get a teams best game, Carter said. We see it on the field and we know it is coming.Co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott said last week that former Baylor coaching great and past American Football Coaches Association president Grant Teaff stopped by to visit the Tigers staff. Teaff told them hed watched several games and that the teams apparent belief in ultimate success during dire circumstances is a characteristic championship teams typically develop.We havent won a championship yet and weve got things to clean up, Scott said.

John Konchar Jersey .New Englands quarterback recently dropped his appeal and will serve a four-game suspension to begin this season for his alleged involvement in taking air out of footballs before the 2015 AFC Championship. Brady threatened to take his case to the Supreme Court before giving up.I was disappointed that he didnt keep appealing, from a players standpoint, Thomas said Saturday as the Browns got ready for their second practice of training camp, because it kind of gives the commissioner a little bit more power that maybe was not necessarily already negotiated or settled.Thomas has been outspoken in the past about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodells handling of Bradys situation. Last year, Thomas accused Goodell of witch hunts against players.One of eight players in history to make the Pro Bowl in each of his first nine seasons, Thomas believes Brady finally relented because there was no guarantee hed win.I think that everyone just got kind of sick of appealing that, Thomas said. I guess maybe the NFLPA might sue on his behalf down the line to try to balance the commissioners powers, so Im not sure.After serving his suspension, Brady is eligible to return to the field on Oct. 9, when the Browns host the Patriots.I was hoping he would appeal for like one game, Thomas joked.

DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says the teams decision not to stay at Donald Trump-branded hotels in New York and Chicago was made before the presidential election. Chris Drury Jersey .The billionaire technology entrepreneur declined Wednesday to elaborate on the decision, telling The Associated Press it was made months ago. Not recently.Cuban was a frequent critic of Trump during the campaign and supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who lost to the Republican president-elect.ESPN, citing anonymous sources, reported that Dallas, Memphis and Milwaukee were among the teams that moved away from Trump-branded hotels in New York and Chicago. The network reported that the decision was made in part to avoid any implied association with Trump.The Memphis Grizzlies are another team that isnt staying at Trump properties.It had nothing to do with the election. We made those decisions months ago, coach David Fizdale said Wednesday night before a game against the Clippers. We didnt stay in Trump hotels when I was in Miami either, so when I came here I wanted to stay in places I was familiar with. It had nothing to do with him.Several NBA coaches have been critical of Trump since the election, including Golden States Steve Kerr and San Antonios Gregg Popovich.Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd declined to comment as a team spokesman pointed to a statement earlier in the day that the team would not go on the record about its season travel plans.But star forward Jabari Parker said he supports the teams decision not to stay in Trump properties.It targets most of the guys on the team, the controversy that Donald Trump stands for, Parker told The Associated Press.

American Kevin Streelman was in second place after shooting a 69. Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin clearly wasnt pleased with his players after the No. 24 Bearcats lost to No. 21 URI in Saturdays second semifinal game of the Naismith Hall of Fame Tipoff in Connecticut.But Cronin, who recognizes the concerns he has about his team, also knows, Its early.And he also knows he has to get his team ready quickly for what likely will be a bit of a letdown game against Penn State in Sundays consolation game at Mohegan Sun Casino Arena.Its rare that the third-place game is played after the championship, but thats the way it is in this preseason tournament -- and while the Bearcats had to be thinking about a date with No. 1 Duke in the final, what they have is a meeting with the 2-2 Nittany Lions, who lost to Duke by 10 in the first game Saturday.We just wanted to win. We wanted to win today, Cronin snapped when asked if his team was thinking about Duke.The Nittany Lions fell to 0-14 all-time when facing the No. 1 team in the nation, but coach Patrick Chambers saw the positives in the way his team played.We took another step today, he said. We got better. And thats our goal Just keep getting better. Its a process thats going to take some time, but were going to eventually get there.Cronin, who lost a coaching battle to personal friend Dan Hurley and URI, hopes his guys learned a lesson.They ttaught us a lot about ourselves today and our deficiencies were physical and mental toughness, he said. Tom Barrasso Jersey. We got what we deserved. Reboundings about heart and toughness.Asked about both, Cronin said, Its been our weakness with this particular team since practice started.He went on to say his players could be relying on what it says on our chest, and have to put in the work to get better.Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, whose injury battered team moved onto the final, gave a nod to Penn State, saying, We really prepared hard for Penn State. We think theyre good and we prepared that way and it helped.Said Chambers, who got 20 points out of Tony Carr Saturday: Theres so much more basketball to go. Thats whats so exciting for me.Our focus is on Penn State and making Penn State better. Whoever were playing Sunday, trying to get better that day. ... We need to get there hopefully by Big Ten season.Cincinnati started the season just barely on the outside of the rankings, at No. 26. The Bearcats won a game and moved up to 24 and need a win Sunday if they are to have any chance of staying in the Top 25.They were the tougher team. I thought they wanted it more, Cronin said of Rhode Island. ' ' ' y category.4. StabilityNeither the Pelicans nor Kings have done a good job of putting together a well-rounded roster, but Cousins is on his sixth head coach, the Kings lack player leadership on the court and in the locker room, and from ownership to the front office, its been an absolute circus in recent years.To me, an immature mercurial player like Cousins without leadership and direction is just a mess waiting to happen. Maybe new coach Dave Joerger can find the magic touch, but I remain skeptical.Instead, give me the Brow and his more enticing all-around stats. I prefer crossing my fingers in the hope that he can stay on the court for 70-75 games, because the only thing I see stopping him from a top-five finish is his health -- and thats an issue that also continues to plague Boogie.
