MALAGA, Spain -- Malaga rallied twice to defeat 10-man Sporting Gijon 3-2 in the Spanish league on Friday. Replica Brazil Jerseys .Malaga moved to ninth place in the 20-team standings after 11 matches.Sporting twice had the lead at La Rosaleda Stadium, but striker Michael Santos sealed Malagas comeback victory with a header from inside the area in the 78th minute, less than 10 minutes after Sporting defender Lillo was sent off with a second yellow card.Sporting, enduring an eight-game winless streak, remains in the relegation zone. Paulinho Jersey . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. Pedro Geromel Jersey . With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. http://www.cheapbraziljerseysauthentic.com/ . Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void. MIAMI -- The offseason is over. And only 1,230 games are left until the playoffs start.So, before they raise that banner in Cleveland and the season finally begins Tuesday night, lets empty the notebook and go over 10 more things to know going into this NBA season:---THE CHAMPS: The opportunity is there for Cleveland to get off to a fast start. The Cavaliers play 10 of their first 14 games at home, and the four road contests are all merely one-game trips. LeBron James and his teammates wont have to pack anything bigger than an overnight bag until a two-game trip takes them to Philadelphia and Milwaukee on Nov. 27 and 29. (PS: Defending champions are 55-14 on opening night, including 8-1 in the last nine years.)---LEBRONS LEGEND: LeBron James has been a first-team All-NBA selection 10 times, including each of the last nine seasons. If hes a first-teamer again this year, hell become the third player in league history with 11 such selections joining only Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone. The other 10-timers besides James are Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Tim Duncan, Bob Cousy, Jerry West, Michael Jordan, Bob Pettit and Elgin Baylor. Besides James, no other active player has more than five first-team nods (Dwight Howard and Kevin Durant).---FOR OPENERS: Miami has the longest active streak of opening-night wins, with five straight going into their Game 1 of this season at Orlando on Wednesday. Atlanta has the longest active Game 1 losing streak, having dropped each of its last four openers.---WE SHOULD HAVE SEEN IT COMING: Last season, Golden State became the fifth team to start 14-0 or better in NBA history. Of those five, only one went on to win the title. The 1993-94 Houston Rockets started 15-0 and won the championship -- but the 1948-49 Washington Capitols (15-0), 1957-58 Boston Celtics (14-0), 2002-03 Dallas Mavericks (14-0) and last seasons Warriors all fell short in their title quests.---STEPH AT THE LINE: Golden States Stephen Curry -- the two-time reigning MVP -- enters this season as the third-best frree throw shooter in NBA history, having made 90. Miranda Jersey. 16 percent of his tries. Hes within reach of No. 1 Steve Nash (90.43) and No. 2 Mark Price (90.39).---DRIVE FOR FIVE: DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers will bid this season to win his fifth straight field-goal percentage title. The only other two players to lead the league in shooting five straight times are Wilt Chamberlain (1964-65 through 1968-69) and Shaquille ONeal (1997-98 through 2001-02).---ROAD WARRIORS: San Antonio has a chance to become the only current NBA franchise with a winning road record. If the Spurs go 28-13 away from home this season -- doable, considering they were 27-14 on the road last season -- they would then be 829-828 in opposing arenas all-time. On average, NBA teams win 37.9 percent of their road games.---POP WATCH: Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is nine wins shy of tying Larry Brown (1,098) for No. 7 on the NBAs all-time list. Hes also 66 shy of No. 6 Phil Jackson (1,155).---MEXICO SUNS: Phoenix has 39 home games this season instead of the usual 41. The Suns are playing twice in Mexico City, and will be the home team there for games against Dallas on Jan. 12 and San Antonio on Jan. 14. We have an incredibly strong and supportive Hispanic fan base in Arizona, and these two games present a unique opportunity to strengthen our relationship with NBA fans in both Arizona and Mexico, Suns President Jason Rowley said.---PLANNING AHEAD: For those who need to fill their calendars, take note of the following dates -- All-Star weekend in New Orleans is Feb. 17-19; playoffs start April 15; second round starts May 1; conference finals will start May 14, 15 or 16; the NBA Draft lottery is May 16; the NBA Finals start on June 1 and a Game 7, if necessary, would be June 18. The draft is June 22.---Follow AP Basketball Writer Tim Reynolds on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/ByTimReynolds Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap NFL T-shirts Cheap NFL Black Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Discount Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '

GLENDALE, Ariz. Authentic Wade Boggs Jersey . -- Even with two road points secure, Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien was far from happy Saturday night.This wasnt a game I was accustomed to the last week or so, Julien said after Bostons 2-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes. We cant be satisfied with just two points. We have to be able to play better. We looked like a team that thought it would be an easy night.David Pastrnak got his team-leading 10th goal, Ryan Spooner also scored and Tuukka Rask stopped 31 shots for the Bruins, who have won three of their last four overall and nine straight against Arizona.Boston has not lost to the Coyotes since Oct. 9, 2010, during a season-opening series in Prague.Radim Vrbata scored a power-play goal and Louis Domingue made 27 saves for the Coyotes, who have lost two straight and three of their past four.Its a game of inches and right now were just a little bit behind, Domingue said. Weve got to start with ourselves, look in the mirror and know we can do better. Were last in the league -- were not there now, but weve been there a long time. Weve just got to find common ground and work as a team.Boston dominated play in the first period, generating multiple scoring chances off Coyotes turnovers but failing to score.The Bruins finally broke through to lead 1-0 at 7:54 of the second. David Backes passed from behind the net to Zdeno Chara just above the circles, and Spooner redirected his shot past Domingue for his third goal.Hes got a bomb, Spooner said. I was kind of scared standing there but Im glad it went into the back of the net.Pastrnak made it 2-0 just under two minutes later, taking a pass from Brad Marchand off the right boards and beating Domingue from the top of the right circle.Pastrnak is tied for second in the league in goals, trailing only Winnipeg rookie Patrik Laine.Marchand had a chance to extend the lead further with 5:27 left in the period but was stopped on a partial breakaway by a Domingue pad save.Vrbata cut the Bruins lead to 2-1 with 7:55 left, firing a shot from the left that bounced off the left post, into Rasks body and back into the net.Arizona mustered only a handful of scoring chances during the first two periods. The Coyotes best chance came early in the second period when Max Domi took control of a rebound in the low slot and pushed the puck flush against the left post before it was cleared.Our execution was just poor, Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. We turned over a lot of pucks and brought some problems on ourselves. We pushed in the third but it wasnt enough.Game notes Vrbata has five points in his last four games. He tied David Ellett for 16th place on the franchises career scoring list with his 299th career point. ... Charas assist was the 400th of his career. ... Coyotes D Michael Stone returned to the lineup after missing six games with an upper-body injury. Stone has missed nine of Arizonas first 13 games because of injury. ...

Authentic Boston Red Sox Jerseys .Sean Monahan scored on a power play midway through the third period off a pass from Johnny Gaudreau, lifting Calgary over the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Tuesday night for its fourth straight win.Gaudreau dished to Monahan from behind the net into the slot, and Monahan slid a wrist shot past goalie Kari Lehtonen through a narrow opening at the bottom left corner of the net.I was a little too aggressive on trying to take the pass away, Lehtonen said. The pass went through, and I was still kind of sideways when the shot was coming. That was not a good play by me.Calgary has moved up two spots with this streak to third place in the Pacific, a nice leap for a team with just one playoff appearance in the past seven seasons.Gaudreaus goal tied it at 1 in the second period.

Gaudreau passed across ice to Chiasson, who passed back to Gaudreau on the left for a snap shot with Lehtonen pulled out of position.The Flames appeared to take a lead at 15:23 of the second, when Mark Giordano drilled a slap shot into the net. Stars coach Lindy Ruff challenged the goal, saying that Calgary was offside, and the decision was overturned.With 4:35 to play, the referees determined that a Stars player had kicked the puck into the net. No goal.Game notes Gaudreau has scored in his last three games, interrupted by a 10-game absence because of the broken finger.

This guy can play so well.Franco birdied the par-5 18th to finish at 18-under 192. He had three birdies in a four-hole stretch on the front nine, birdied four of the first five on the back nine and made his lone bogey on the par-3 16th. The four-time PGA Tour winner won in his 25th start on the 50-and-over tour.Im so happy I finally won my first tournament on the Champions Tour especially here in Canada, Franco said. A long time ago, I dont win a tournament. I lost my game for a couple years and it came back again this week.Langer shot 64. The 59-year-old German star won the Boeing Classic last week for his fourth victory of the year and 29th overall on tour.I played really good golf today, shot 6 under the last 10 holes and really gave it a go to win the tournament, but Carlos was just too good today, Langer said.

The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- A fake field goal. A surprise onside kick. Even some naked revelers in the Yale student section attempting to distract archrival Harvard.And the biggest trick of all from Yale in the 133rd edition of The Game: A 21-14 upset over the Crimson on Saturday to end a nine-year losing streak in one of the oldest rivalries in sports and spoil Harvards chances of an unprecedented fourth straight Ivy League title.Theres been a long streak. We dont like to talk about it, said Yale quarterback Kurt Rawlings, a freshman who threw for two touchdowns and ran for 74 yards. But its over. Now its our streak.Harvard (7-3, 5-2 Ivy) needed a victory to clinch a share of the conference championship . The Bulldogs (3-7, 3-4) had little to play for except a chance to spoil Harvards season.Thats exactly what they did.After setting up their first touchdown with a fake field goal, Yale opened the second half with an onside kick and scored to take its first lead. The Bulldogs went ahead for good with 4:14 left on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Rawlings to Reed Klubnik, who had the ball knocked out of his hands just after he reached across the goal line.Harvard coaches protested along the sideline. (There is no replay in the Ivy League.)The Crimson had two possessions in the final minutes, but couldnt score. Harvard players walked glumly back to their field house after blowing the chance to become the first class ever to win four straight conference championships.The nine straight Crimson victories in The Game was the longest winning streak in the history of a rivalry that was first played in 1875.Something we havent experienced in a long time is you can put it all out there, you can work as hard as you can, you can believe. And when you do that you still risk getting your heart broken, Harvard coach Tim Murphy said. Thats certainly what happened today.THE TAKEAWAYYale: Tony Reno picked up his first win against Harvard as head coach. He had also worked in both Cambridge and New Haven as an assistant.You grow as a season goes on. This team grew every week, Reno said. Sometimes it wasnt easy to see in the score, but what you saw today was the work we put in all year.HHarvard: The Crimson could have clinched a share of the conference title either last week, against Penn, or in the finale. Ombre Hydro Flask 40 oz Wide Mouth Flamingo Water Bottle. Instead, they end with two straight losses.Penn and Princeton both won on Saturday and will share the Ivy title.LET THE DANCING BEGINAfter the final kneel-down, Yale students poured out of the stands to celebrate with the team at midfield. Others danced in the form of a giant Y in the corner of Harvard Stadium that was the full height of the seating bowl.I was overjoyed, obviously, linebacker Darius Manora said, noting that he had played his last Game but would not stop rooting for the team: As an alum, Im excited for the future.NAKED STUDENTSOther Yale fans didnt wait for the end of the game to let it all out in support of their team.Although the traditional mid-November matchup has seen some days so frigid that fans head home with frostbite, this one was played under sunny skies and temperatures in the 50s.That was warm enough for a dozen or so students in the Yale student section to strip off their clothes and dance naked on the concrete wall of the century-old stadium. Police were seen escorting some from the stands, but a Harvard spokeswoman said there were no arrests.SLOW STARTIt took some time for the teams to get their bearings, playing 25 scoreless minutes and punting a combined 11 times to start the game before Charlie Booker bounced around the right end for a 27-yard touchdown to give Harvard a 7-0 lead late in the second quarter.Rawlings started Yales next drive with a 28-yard run and then the Bulldogs kept it going with a 16-yard jump pass on a fake field goal that put the ball on the 3. Alan Lamar ran it in from the 1.To start the second, Yale pulled off an onside kick that led to a 28-yard pass to Klubnik that gave the Bulldogs a 14-7 lead.Harvard tied it, picking up 34 yards to the Yale 2 on a fourth-and-3. Three plays later, Joe Viviano found Ryan Halvorson in the end zone to make it 14-all.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Two losses in two games by a total of three points have the Spanish mens basketball team in an unenviable, yet somewhat familiar position. Marcos Rojo France Jersey .Spain dropped to 0-2 after Tuesdays 66-65 loss to Brazil, but theres still a level of optimism in the locker room.The disappointing start to the Rio Games -- losing twice before the medial round -- is reminiscent of the London Games. The Spaniards started better in 2012, then lost twice only to rebound and capture the silver.Honestly, I dont like the situation for sure, Rudy Fernandez said. We lost the first two games, but I remember in London we lost two games, too.I trust in my teammates. ... We are very good players. We know the situation we are in. Honestly, we have a chance. We have a chance to win the next three games.Whats different this time, however, is a large part of that core team is showing signs of age, roles have changed -- or are not here.Spain has been an international power for a decade with silver medals at the 2008 Beijing Games and the 2012 London Games, gold in the 2006 world basketball championship, three FIBA EuroBasket titles and four other top -three finishes, but they are facing a transitional period.Its my last Olympics, thats for sure, point guard Jose Calderon said. I dont know, I think everybody is totally different. I think personal health and situations are different to decide if its the last one or not, but it is what it is. I think weve been playing two good basketball games and we just couldnt finish.Calderon, 34, is playing in his fourth Olympics, but has played less than two minutes in Rio.New San Antonio Spurs center Pau Gasol is reaching the twilight of his career and, at 36 years old, may be playing in his last Olympics.His brother, Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol, is not playing in Rio while he rehabs a broken foot.Fernandez is still playing big minutes, but he hasnt been knocking down jump shots like he did as player that logged four NBA seasons. Hes just 1 for 7 from the arc in Rio.There are six players on the team born in or before 1986 and just three who were on the team for the Beijing Games. Younger players like Ricky Rubio, Nikola Mirotic and Willy Hernangomez seem to be the future of the team.While still optimistic, Spain has clearly missed Marc Gasol, a two-time NBA All-Star and 2012-13 Defensive Player of the Year. Brazil was physical with the Spanish team and got the go-ahead basket on a follow shot by Marcus Marquinhos with 5.5 seconds left.Spain lost 72-70 to Croatia in its opener when Dario Saric blocked Pau Gasols point-blank shot at the buzzer.Well it could sound like an excuse if we talk about Marc tonight, Spain coach Sergio Scariolo said. Of course. We became a special team especially when we found a way to have Marc and Pau play together a few years ago. Unfortunately in the last couple of years, this was not possible because Marc was out.So we are a good normal team and we have to find a way to compete like we are doing and to win without Marc. We are happy about the players we have. Theres no point to regret or to double-guess today.Scariolo called the situation frustrating, but lamented that they could easily be 2-0. The Spanish team plays Nigeria, Lithuania and Argentina in the final three games of pool play.I would call it challenging, Scariolo said. Challenging, not bad because this is not bad until youre out and we are still very in. For how our training camp went, it shows that we miss some fluidity in our offensive game. Our shooting percentages have been so far really low, even free throws tonight. Which is not usual.Of course we would have liked to be 2-0 instead of 0-2, but we lost by two with a block against in the very last second and by one today. So we cannot make a long speech about losing when you lose by such a small margin. Javier Mascherano France Jersey . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. Sergio Romero France Jersey .

In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. ST. LOUIS -- Anthony Rizzo had a two-run single, Chris Rusin pitched around seven hits in six innings, and the Chicago Cubs recorded their first shutout in St. Louis in 16 years with a 3-0 victory over the Cardinals on Friday night. Rusin (2-1) twice worked out of bases-loaded jams and only set the Cardinals down in order in the first. He struck out a season-high five and issued two intentional walks. Kevin Gregg recorded his 24th save to complete the Cubs first shutout in St. Louis since Jeremi Gonzalez tossed one on June 23, 1997. Lance Lynn (13-6), attempting to become the National Leagues first 14-game winner, laboured over 6 2-3 innings despite giving up just three hits.

The accolades, honours and milestones have piled up of late for Michael Carrick, as he clocked up 10 years at Manchester United, broke through the 500 Premier League games barrier and added an FA Cup triumph to his CV. Ombre Hydro Flask 40 oz Wide Mouth Mint Water Bottle . But such is the positive nature within the 35-year-old there is not a sign of a diminishing appetite as he eyes a sixth Premier League winners medal this season. Man Utd vs Arsenal November 19, 2016, 11:30am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass United may be eight points off the Premier League summit, back in sixth, but Carrick firmly believes this seasons battle will be a tight one but its one he certainly wants to have a greater involvement in and the statistics back his claim too. Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports News HQ, Carrick said: We want to be at the top challenging. Weve had some ups and downs along the way, its not to say that weve given up on winning things just yet - its too early for that and weve got too much quality and too much of a good team and squad to give up on anything.We just dont feel weve got the results our performances have warranted; we know it can change, were not up to Christmas yet, theres still so much to play for and we still believe that when it comes near the end and when it counts well be right up there. Carrick (L) has spent plenty of time on the bench alongside skipper Wayne Rooney this season The midfielder has been involved in just six games under Jose Mourinho but boasts a 100 per cent winning record from those games with a pass completion rate of 96 per cent.Such accuracy and his advancing years have seen comparisons with Italian Andrea Pirlo but, while flattered, Carrick insists he is just trying to get on with his job.Some players peak quite early, some players peak late but to compare individuals can be quite tough. I do feel that experience does help and the understanding of the game does help you, Carrick added.But at the same time you lose the other attributes that you had maybe when you were younger, because physically sometimes it catches up with you. So at the moment I feel good physically, but to compare with different players can be misleading at times. Jose Mourinho watches on as Carrick and the United squad train But Carrick, who has been hailed by Mourinho as having a big understanding of the game also knows he probably wont be able to play every week and will have to listen to his body more and more.He said: Ive seen it before, many times, with players whove come through this club and come towards the end of their careers still being able to make such a big contribution.It doesnt have to be every week, it doesnt have to be grabbing headlines every week but theres a contribution to be made and Ive seen it many times in the time Ive been here. Hopefully Ive learned from that and I can give my contribution in some sort of way. Mourinho says he wishes Carrick was 10 years younger Carricks age, experience and resume means hes now the elder statesman of the Manchester United dressing room.Younger players look to the man who has won 34 England caps to give them advice on succeeding in an environment that, while constantly challenging and inspiring, can also be hostile and pressurised - it is a father figure role that Uniteds No 16 is enjoying too.Its the way it goes as time ticks by, you end up being the oldest one. I mean Im not one who goes around shouting and screaming and sort of dictating to the young boys what to do, he continued. Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price Its just if I see something Ill try to give them advice, if they come and ask for something Im always there to speak to and I try to help them because its important.It is not just a one-way street for the man whos been at Old Trafford for more than a decade, hes looking to the future in more ways than just his own.Currently in the process of completing his UEFA A License, Carrick has been working with Uniteds youngsters, within the Academy at the Aon Training Centre, and even credits them with improvements in his own game,Carrick said: The badges are going alright actually, Im not far from finishing my A license now. Ive been doing a lot of work with the U14s and its something I really enjoyFitting it in is the biggest problem around schedules and games especially, with having so many games at the moment. I think Ive probably improved as a player as well since Ive started doing my badges and thinking about the game a bit differently. Arsene Wenger and Mourinho will go head-to-head at Old Trafford on Saturday Carrick certainly enjoys playing far more than watching but with Arsenal next up at Old Trafford, one of his fondest days as a spectator was five years ago as United beat the Gunners 8-2.This time around hes expecting a far tougher game but warning he and his team-mates are yet to reach the consistency expected of them by the fans, the manager and the players themselves.Arsenal have got some really good players. When it clicks for them they are a very dangerous team and theyve shown in their start to the season how dangerous they can be, he said.But I think we can be quite dangerous as well and we probably havent quite clicked into top gear which, in some ways is a good thing, because we know theres plenty to come. And if we can just hang in there and not be too far away we feel when we do hit top form well have a right say in it.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!

Young formally announced his retirement Friday after returning to Rangers Ballpark, his baseball home for all but the last of his 13 major league seasons. LAS VEGAS -- With six new players donning a Butler uniform this season, coach Chris Holtmann isnt sure what to expect from his Bulldogs.Some have labeled this season as a rebuilding year. Holtmann shrugs it off with a wait-and-see attitude.He may not have to wait any longer, as his Bulldogs showed plenty of resolve Friday night in a 69-65 victory over No. 8 Arizona in the championship game of the Continental Las Vegas Invitational.Kelan Martin had 16 points, while Andrew Chrabascz had 14 points and seven rebounds to lead Butler (6-0), while Avery Woodson contributed 13 points, Kamar Baldwin had 11 and Tyler Wideman had eight rebounds.Chrabascz was named MVP of the tournament.Its too early to tell what this years going to look like, but what we know is weve already had some good moments this year, said Holtmann, who is in his third season at Butler. Time will tell. Were just trying to kind of grow as a team and figure that out.This was really important for us, because we had some shaky moments for sure in that game. I think our guys found their composure at the right time, and we played well in stretches. But I think Arizona did too. I give them a lot credit, theyre a good team and really well-coached. Its a quality win for us.The Wildcats, who fell behind by as many as nine points with 14 minutes to play, used a 15-2 run to regain momentum to get back in the game before Butler made a final run down the stretch.Freshmen Lauri Markkanen and Kobi Simmons led Arizona (5-1) with 15 and 14 points, respectively.Trailing by four points late, the Bulldogs went on a 9-2 run, highlighted by Widemans dunk with 29.3 seconds left that gave Butler a 65-63 lead. His ensuing free throw made it 66-63.Both Holtmann and Chrabascz said there was never any sign of panic on the Bulldogs part, even when the Wildcats were ahead by five with 3 minutes left.We just said lets just find a way to do what we do and hope it works -- it was as simple as that, Holtmann said. Players make plays, and they did. We told them to move the ball offensively, we did a little bit of a defensive switch late, we just really focused them on the possessions at hand.Chrabasczs layup with 1:38 left cut Arizonas lead to two, and moments later two free throws by Baldwin tied the game at 63-all, leading up tto Widemans go-ahead dunk. 21 oz Ombre Hydro Flask Sport Cap Standard Mouth Olive. The Bulldogs set themselves up with momentum at the close of the first half, when Sean McDermott took a pass on the run from Tyler Lewis, and banked in a soft jumper high off the glass to give Butler a 36-34 lead.After Arizona tied the game at 38-all less than 2 minutes into the second half, the Bulldogs went on an 11-2 run to move ahead 49-40 and seize control of the tempo. The momentum shift visibly frustrated the Wildcats, who committed five turnovers inside the first 7 minutes of the second half.BIG PICTUREArizona: With time to regroup after a rugged start to the season, the biggest question remains when Allonzo Trier will make his season debut. The sophomore guard did not travel to Las Vegas with the Wildcats, and hes now missed the teams first six games for unspecified reasons. His absence has left Arizona with eight healthy scholarship players. Trier averaged 14.8 points as a freshman.Butler: The Bulldogs received 14 votes in last weeks poll, but after knocking off Arizona to remain undefeated, one must wonder if theyve done enough to make their first appearance in the Top 25. Three of Butlers six wins have come against Power 5 Conference teams: Northwestern (Big Ten), Vanderbilt (SEC) and Arizona (Pac 12).POLL IMPLICATIONS: With the loss, the eighth-ranked Wildcats will likely drop out of the Top 10. Arizona has been ranked in the Top 25 for 81 consecutive weeks, the second-longest streak in the nation behind Kansas (145 weeks). Since the start of the 2012-13 season, the Wildcats have spent 60 of those weeks ranked in the Top 10.TURNING POINT: While it was Widemans dunk that gave Butler the lead again, the key moment came with a little more than 3 minutes to play, when Markkanen fouled out, leaving Arizona without its key presence in the paint. Going into the game, the 7-footer from Finland led the team with 18.8 points and 8.4 rebounds per game.UP NEXTArizona: The Wildcats wont play again until Nov. 30, when they return to the McKale Center to host Texas Southern.Butler: The Bulldogs have little time to rest, as they head to Salt Lake City for a Nov. 28 date with Pac 12-member Utah.

BROOKLYN, Mich. Authentic Will Hernandez Jersey . -- Chris Buescher remained in position to reach the Chase for the Sprint Cup.Barely.Buescher felt fortunate to finish 35th on Sunday in the NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway after dealing with engine problems, and he managed to stay in 30th place in the Cup standings. As long as he stays in the top 30, hell be in the Chase thanks to his victory at Pocono earlier this month.Buescher leads David Ragan by seven points for the No. 30 spot.It definitely could have been a lot worse, Buescher said. If we would have had a DNF we would have lost another five points and been right on the bubble. Unfortunately, we were too many laps down to make up anything. The way the race played out there were no wave-around opportunities, hardly any lucky dogs with those little cautions. It was kind of a wild day.Buescher needs to stay in the top 30 for two more races. Then the Chase begins. He was 13 points ahead of Ragan before this race.Buescher started 21st at Michigan, but just four laps into Sundays race, he radioed his team of potential engine problems. By the 20th lap, he was sitting in last place.His crew repeatedly opened the hood of his car and replaced spark plugs.I know it isnt fun opening a hood of a race car that is as hot as it is and trying to work on it, he said.

SPRINGFIELD, N. 49ers Jerseys China .J. -- Golf and storms dont mix. Thats especially the case at Baltusrol.The last time the PGA Championship was on the A.W. Tillinghast design, thunderstorms forced the tournament to be delayed until Monday. Play resumed the next morning with Phil Mickelson facing a putt on No. 14. Mickelson ended up claiming a one-shot victory with a birdie on the 18th.This years PGA Championship could look similar to 2005. Severe storms suspended play for the day on Saturday , and 10 players returned Sunday morning to start their rounds while 39 others finished theirs.With no delays on Sunday, the tournament could be completed, but with even one delay, a Monday finish would to be the most likely scenario.Heres a look at other majors that have been affected by weather delays:---2015 British Open at St. AndrewsAfter rain on Friday caused a three-hour delay, heavy wind caused a 10-hour delay on Saturday. The combination of flooding and high wind caused the entire second round to last nearly 39 hours over two days. It also forced a Monday finish. It was the first time the British Open ended on a Monday since 1988.Zach Johnson won in a four-hole playoff over Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman. Jordan Spieth, going for the third leg of the Grand Slam, missed the playoff by one shot.---2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black (New York)Relentless rain fell for five straight days, starting with the opening round. Just over three hours of golf was played, and no one played more than 11 holes. Play was suspended again on Saturday. It was the first time the U.S. Open ended on a Monday without a playoff since 1983.Lucas Glover closed with a 3-over 73 for a two-shot victory.---1988 British Open at Royal LythamSteady rain forced the cancellation of the entire third round on Saturday, causing it to be played on Sunday and the final round on Monday. Primarily the ninth, 10th, and 11th greens were flooded. It was the first time the British Open extended past Sunday.Seve Ballesteros won, securing his third Open Championship, and last of his five majors.In his career, Ballesteros won the Open on a Saturday, a Sunday and a Monday. He won in 1979 when the British Open used to end on Saturday. He won on Sunday in 1984 at St. Andrews, and then Monday in 1988 .---1987 Womens U.S. Open at Plainfield (New Jersey)Rain stopped play on Sunday and forced golfers to resume Monday morning. JoAnne Carner took the lead on the 17th with a birdie, but she missed a 5-foot par on the last hole to create a three-way playoff on Tuesday.Laura Davies won the first of her four majors in an 18-hole playoff over Ayako Okamoto and Carner.---1983 U.S. Open at Oakmont (Pennsylvania)Rain caused play to be suspended on Sunday, with the leaders only needing to play the last four holes. When play resumed on Monday, Larry Nelson pulled ahead from the field with a 60-foot birdie putt on the 16th. Tom Watson and Seve Ballesteros shared a third-round, but Ballesteros fell behind and tied for fourth. Watson couldnt make a 5-footer for par on the 17th and missed a birdie at the last that would have forced a playoff.Nelson won his second major. Authentic Mike McGlinchey Jersey . The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012. He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season. Authentic Dante Pettis Jersey . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. http://www.cheap49ersjerseysauthentic.com/ . -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses. RALEIGH, N.C. -- Jeff Skinner had a hat trick, and then he didnt. He still did it all to help the Carolina Hurricanes earn a victory they hope will mean even more in the spring.Skinner had two goals and an assist, and the Hurricanes beat the New York Rangers 3-2 on Friday night.Skinner originally had his fifth career hat trick -- and a shower of souvenir hats on the ice -- before the third goal was awarded to Bryan Bickell on a scoring change.I told Bicksie he owes everyone in the building their hats back, Skinner quipped.Still, his 16th career three-point night -- in his debut wearing the A as an alternate captain -- helped the Hurricanes win their home opener.Hes got the ability to make things happen in tight spaces, Carolina coach Bill Peters said. Hes got real good edge control. And hes dangerous. Hes a goal-scorer. Theres not a lot of them anymore, and hes a pure scorer, one of those guys that can just hang in the weeds a little bit and all of a sudden he gets the puck at the right time and the right spot, and its in the net.Victor Rask had two assists, giving him points in all seven games, and Cam Ward made 28 saves -- stopping Mats Zuccarello with about 5 seconds left -- to help Carolina snap a two-game losing streak.Zuccarello scored two power-play goals and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 18 shots for the Rangers, who snapped a three-game winning streak.It seems silly to label an October game as a must-win, but this might have counted as one for the Hurricanes: Since the lockout that wiped out the 2004-05 season, they have not made the playoffs in any season in which they lost their home opener . Meanwhile, only twice in that span have they won their first game at PNC Arena, and they went on to reach the postseason both times.And Skinner did plenty to make it happen in this one.He beat the second-period buzzer with a slap shot from the right circle -- a rreview found that 0. Authentic Jullian Taylor Jersey. 8 seconds were on the clock when the puck crossed the goal line -- that sent hundreds of complimentary hats onto the ice. It wasnt until the intermission that officials determined the puck clipped Bickell on its way past Lundqvist.I was shocked when I saw it in the net, Lundqvist said. Just had eyes, that puck, and obviously its a backbreaker to give up a goal that late. Thats the winner.That came after Skinner tied it with 7:26 left in the first when he chased down the rebound of his shot and snapped it high from the circle . He put Carolina up 2-1 by beating Lundqvist with a smooth backhand 33 seconds into the second.Zuccarello matched him goal for goal, beating Ward on a breakaway with 7:43 left in the second to make it 2-all, after his first goal was disputed by the Hurricanes.His high wrister from the left circle came after Carolina defenseman Ron Hainsey and New York winger Pavel Buchnevich fell on top of Ward during a scrum. The Hurricanes challenged, claiming interference, but the goal was upheld upon review.I felt like after we tied it at 2, the way we were playing, it felt like we were going to get this one, Lundqvist said.Game notes Lundqvist assisted on Zuccarellos second goal for the veteran goalies first assist of the season. He had four last year. ... Only one player in Hurricanes/Whalers history has a longer points streak to begin a season than Rask -- general manager Ron Francis, who did it in 1984-85 with Hartford. ... Two-time Daytona 500 winner NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. sounded the siren that blares when the Hurricanes enter the rink.UP NEXTRangers: Return home to face Tampa Bay on Sunday.Hurricanes: Wrap up a two-game homestand Sunday against division rival Philadelphia.
