This story is part of ESPN The Magazines Oct. Gary Harris Nuggets Jersey . 31 NBA Preview Issue. Subscribe today!New England PatriotsOverall: 17 Title track: 2 Ownership: 20 Coaching: 2 Players: 2 Fan relations: 12 Affordability: 79 Stadium experience: 36 Bang for the buck: 37 Change from last year: +8If quarterback Tom Brady serving a four-game suspension to open the NFL season was supposed to get Patriots fans down, it didnt work. In fact, optimism for the team might be at an all-time high as the Patriots improved eight spots in ESPNs Ultimate Standings, after making an 18-spot jump the year before. The only nitpick for fans is the rising cost to attend a game.Whats goodPretty much everything, which is the way it goes with a team that is an annual Super Bowl contender. The Patriots No. 2 title track ranking is the best in the NFL, as are the No. 2 rankings for coaching and players. No NFL team ranked better in categories like consistently win more games than they lose, will win at least one championship in my lifetime and demonstrate a commitment to winning. Bill Belichicks work without Tom Brady at the start of the 2016 season has been widely lauded as exemplary -- no surprise, since hes been ranked No. 1 or 2 in the NFL in these standings for each of the past six years. After all, thats why they have a saying in New England: In Bill We Trust.Whats badThe Patriots rank 79th in affordability, which is an 11-spot improvement from the 2015 ultimate rankings, but still lags overall. Tickets are indeed expensive (the average price of $122 is cheaper only than the Giants), but one thing the Patriots often point out is that when Gillette Stadium opened in 2002, there were no personal seat licenses. So that contributed to some higher ticket costs. Also, for those who believe you get what you pay for: For all those high prices, a great bang for the buck ranking shows that the Patriots havent disappointed, annually putting a winning product on the field.Whats newThe Patriots saw a significant increase in stadium experience, jumping 15 spots to No. 36. Among the unique parts of attending a game at Gillette Stadium is the bridge in the north side of the end zone where fans can congregate during the game. Also, those with some extra change to spare can take in a field-level, end zone view from the new Optum Field Lounge, where fans can get close to the action during warm-ups. Independent-minded New Englanders also rewarded Robert Kraft for his fight against the NFL over the handling of Bradys suspension: The Patriots ownership ranking spiked 20 spots, to No. 23 overall.Next: Denver Broncos?| Full rankings Dikembe Mutombo Nuggets Jersey .

Paralysed rugby league player Alex McKinnon reportedly plans to sue the NRL and another player over the 2014 on-field tackle that left him in a wheel chair. Sheldon Rankins Jersey .The former Newcastle forwards legal representatives sent a letter to the NRL last week, according to News Corp Australia.The lawsuit is also reported to include Melbournes Jordan McLean, who was handed a seven-game NRL ban for his involvement in a three-man spear tackle that left McKinnon with a spinal injury.It is understood McLean is being personally sued by McKinnon over the March 2014 incident at AAMI Park.But an NRL spokesperson told AAP the league believes no claim has been lodged, and have been in contact with McKinnons lawyer.The 24-year-old McKinnons rugby league career was cut short by the tackle that has left him in a wheelchair.He expressed a desire to sue last year despite receiving the maximum $500,000 compensation payout from the NRL and around $1.2 million for his medical costs through fundraising efforts.But McKinnon, whose legal team has reportedly met with NRL boss Todd Greenberg, has said that will be nowhere near enough in the long-term.I had no idea how much this injury was going to cost, he told the Nine Network in July 2015.I didnt know until two weeks ago it cost $100,000 for me to get out of bed in the morning.I just need to know how much it is going to cost me, how much money I have and where I (am) going to get that money from.NRL club Melbourne have declined to comment. Sheldon Rankins Saints Jersey . However, he did make them miss him a little less. Cundiff, who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a one-year, $1. Marcus Davenport Saints Jersey . Rinne played two periods in his first game since left hip surgery in early May. Gabriel Bourque scored 3:07 into the second period and Austin Watson tallied 5:15 later for Nashville. http://www.authenticsaintssportsonline.com/saints-michael-thomas-gold-jersey/ . William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period.For five-time Paralympian Alana Nichols, the rules for adhering to a modified, Paleo-inspired diet are simple: Eat cleanly and simply. If it wasnt around a million years ago, dont eat it, says Nichols, 33.Nichols was the first female U.S. athlete to medal in both summer and winter Paralympic sports (wheelchair basketball and alpine skiing). She heads to Rio as part of Team USAs inaugural paracanoe team. If she takes gold, she will make history once again as the first female U.S. athlete -- Paralympic or Olympic -- to win in three sports.I try to eat as raw as possible. Part of being a sprint kayaker is staying lean. While I benefited from carrying extra weight as an alpine skier, its not benefitting me now, so Im cutting out alcohol and most sugars, she says. The San Diego transplant admits, though, that she couldnt live without her coffee or occasional ice cream.Nichols shares her go-to miso salmon meal, with a side of quinoa and kale saladay and time: Before or after training, usually in the afternoon/eveningPlace: San Diego, California, my home base since 2015What Im eating: Miso salmon with kale salad and quinoa sidesWhose recipe: I adapted it from a recipe on the website CChefDeHome. Willie Roaf Saints Jersey. hy Im eating it: I love this recipe for a couple of reasons. First of all, kale and quinoa go together like peanut butter and jelly. The combo has got all my favorite flavors and nutrients! Quinoa is a great source of protein and carbs and kale has the leafy green, energetic nutrients I need to feel great. And the best part -- the miso-glazed salmon! Low-carb, high-protein and gluten-free makes it a healthy meal that will sit well before or after training.The recipe:For salmon: 1 tablespoon ginger (fresh grated) 1 pound salmon (approx. 3 fillets) 3 tablespoons miso paste 2 tablespoons maple syrup 1 teaspoon sesame oil 2 tablespoons white wine 1/4 teaspoon black pepper Oil spraySlice fillets vertically. Coat salmon in miso paste, then marinate for 5 minutes before skewering and broiling for approximately 4-6 minutes until golden brown on the edges.For lemon-sesame kale salad: 1/2 pound kale 1 teaspoon sesame oil 1 tablespoon lemon juice Salt and pepper to tasteMix all ingredients together, toss and set aside to serve with salmon.

PHILADELPHIA -- The day after allowing six goals in a lopsided loss, Steve Mason was supposed to be given the night off. Jason Williams Kings Jersey .Instead, he was thrown into injury relief duty and helped the Flyers pull out a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.Brayden Schenn scored the tiebreaking goal at 8:43 of the third period, and Brandon Manning and Michael Del Zotto also scored to help the Flyers snap a three-game skid.Mason finished with 19 saves after replacing Michael Neuvirth, who stopped six of seven shots before leaving after the first period due to an apparent injury.Its tiring being embarrassed game after game, said Mason, who was in goal in a 6-3 loss at Toronto the previous night. So you just try to find something to build off of. I just have to keep working here. You get two points here and you focus on the next task at hand and thats exactly what Im going to do.Masons last stop was a left pad save on Eric Staal in the closing seconds.It was a great save coming across, Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said, but that sense of urgency shouldnt happen just in the last 3 minutes of the game.Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said Mason, who had not won since Oct. 25, needed a game like this.I hope it continues to boost his confidence, but Mase has nothing to be embarrassed about, Hakstol said. He shows up and he battles hard every day. Things might not have gone as well as he would have liked early on, but thats the game. When one part of the team isnt going great every other part has to pick that piece up a little bit.Nino Niederreiter and Mikael Granlund scored for the Wild, who lost for the third time in four games. Devan Dubnyk had 33 saves.On the go-ahead score, Wayne Simmonds put a between-the-legs pass from behind the net onto Schenns stick and Schenn waited for Dubnyk to go down before firing the puck over him for his third of the season -- all on the power play.The goal snapped Schenns seven-game scoring drought and came with Wild captain Mikko Koivu in the penalty box for tripping Flyers left wing Michael Raffl behind the net. The Wild entered the game with the NHLs fifth-ranked penalty kill, but the Flyers, ranked second on the man-advantage, connected.Dubnyk said the Wild missed an assignment on Schenns goal. Theyve now allowed three power-play goals in the past three games.You usually arent going to go at a guy behind the net there, Dubnyk said, referring to defenseman Jared Spurgeon chasing Simmonds behind the net.The Wild had a chance to tie it when Flyers center Pierre-Edouard Bellemare took an interference penalty on Koivu, but Minnesota did not record a shot on the man-advantage and fell to 2 for 25 on the road this season.The Wild grabbed a pair of one-goal leads in the opening two periods, only to see the Flyers tie the score.Niederreiter, who had 20 goals last season, opened the scoring just 21 seconds in when he lifted a pass from right wing Charlie Coyle over Neuvirths right shoulder. Neuvirth stopped the next six shots before pulling himself out of the game after the first.The Flyers tied it with 7:33 left in the period as Manning wristed a shot from the blue line past a screened Dubnyk for his third.With Mason in, the Wild scored on their fourth shot of the second period to take a 2-1 lead. Koivu started the play by carrying the puck into the offensive zone and making an outside-inside move on Del Zotto. Koivu backhanded a shot off the crossbar and Granlund deposited the rebound for his third.The Flyers tied the score again with 2:15 remaining in the second on a strong rush up the ice by Del Zotto, who passed it to Michael Raffl and then saw Raffls return pass go off his left skate and behind Dubnyk.Game notesMinnesota finished 0 for 2 on the power play and Philadelphia was 1 for 3. ... The teams conclude their season series at Minnesota on March 23. ... Wild F Joel Eriksson Ek left the game early in the first period after taking a puck to the chin but returned for the second period. ... Wild F Zach Parise sat out his fifth straight game with a lower body injury. He is expected to miss Sunday nights game in Ottawa but is skating on his own in Minnesota and could return on Tuesday against Calgary or Thursday against Boston.UP NEXTWild: At Ottawa on Sunday night.Flyers: Host Ottawa on Tuesday night.

Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. http://www.nbakingsonline.com/Authentic-Chris-Webber-Kings-Jersey/ . -- Linebacker Myles Jack ran for four touchdowns, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a scoring pass, and No.A look at some of the highlights from the five games on the schedule Monday at the Orlando Summer League and Utah Jazz Summer League:NO. 1 DEBUTNo. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons made his NBA debut in Salt Lake City. He finished with 10 points, eight rebounds and five assists in just under 24 minutes of play. He left the game in the fourth quarter with the help of two teammates after cramps in both calves forced him off the floor. Simmons said he just needs to drink more fluids and thought not having played 5 on 5 in about four months contributed. Previously, Simmons showed the vision and playmaking ability in his 6-foot-10, 240-pound frame that has placed superstar expectations on his shoulders.HIGH-FLYING BROWNNo 3 overall pick Jaylen Brown also made his debut as the Celtics faced the 76ers. He and Simmons started the game matched up against each other. Whereas Simmons vision immediately stood out, Browns raw athleticism was evident. He finished with 16 points, six rebounds and two assists in the Celtics 102-94 victory. He shot 2 for 7 from the field, but knocked down 11 of 17 free throw attempts as he regularly attacked the rim despite the presences of one or more defenders.ORLANDO HIGHSMavericks guard Vander Blue and Thunder gurad Semaj Christon tied as the high scorers of the day in Orlando with 23 apiece. Christon shot 4 for 15 from the floor, but was 14 for 18 from the free throw line. Blue was 7 for 13 with a pair of triples. Christons six assists also led all players in Orlando on Monday.SALT LAKE CITY HIGHSSpurs second-year forward Kyle Anderson had the line of the night in Salt Lake City with a session-high 25 points, seven rebounds, four steals and three assists. Yogi Ferrell Kings Jersey. Jazz second-year forward Trey Lyles had the lone double-double of the two games with 13 points and 12 rebounds. He shot just 4 for 14 from the field, though.IN THE DThe Pistons improved to 2-0 with a 73-68 win over the Magic Blue team. It wasnt the same type of 32-point victory that came against the Knicks, but Lorenzo Brown led the way with 19 points. Second-year player Stanley Johnson shot just 2-for-14 from the field and finished with eight points, 10 rebounds and one assist.CELTIC PRIDEBoston was the lone team to crack 100 points in any of the five games Monday. That was helped with five different players scoring in double figures. Terry Rozier scored a game-high 18 and second-year guard R.J. Hunter added 17. Brown scored 16 while Malcolm Miller added 14 and Ben Bentil chipped in 11.QUOTABLEHe sees everything, 76ers Summer League coach Billy Lange said of Ben Simmons. One time we asked him why he didnt throw a lob. He said, `Im just not used to throwing it with guys that can catch it. We said, well get used to it. Weve got guys that will go up there and get it.He sees a lot. He sees lot.TUESDAYS MATCHUPSThe Magic Blue team faces the Heat in Orlando while the Clippers play the Knicks and the Pistons take on the Pacers.

PHILADELPHIA -- A chance ride, an hourlong conversation, and the generosity of strangers are making it possible for a Philadelphia Uber driver to go to Rio to see his son compete in the Olympics. NFL Jerseys For Sale .Retired bus driver Ellis Hill didnt have the money to fly to Brazil to watch his son, shot putter Darrell Hill.I was content with just staying home and getting a good bag of popcorn and watching him on TV, he said.But in late July, when the Democratic National Convention was in town, he was fortunate to pick up Liz Willock of Chicago at the Philadelphia airport.There was an air of love and peace, he said. I met a lot of interesting people and delegates from different states.Traffic restrictions and a slow drive to Willocks hotel in New Jersey left plenty of time for conversation.Eventually talk turned to the Olympics. Willock said she knew one of the swimmers competing. Hill did her one better and told her his son, who was a track and field star at Penn State, was in the competitions.Then Willock asked Hill if he was able to go.When he told me he couldnt go to the Olympics in Rio, I just wondered how I would feel as a parent of athletes, Willock said.Within minutes, Willock asked Hill whether he would go if she got him plane tickets.Hill was stunned.I said, `Whoa, I dont even know you, Hill said. She said, `No, no, I believe it was meant for you and I to meet because I just missed my flight.A GoFundMe page was set up, and literally within two days, wed raised the funds, said Willock, who works at a concierge service arranging travel and accommodation for patients participating in clinical trials across the world.Over 150 people had donated $8,200 by the time Willock closed the Send Darrells Dad to Rio fundraiser -- some of them friends and classmates of Hills son, but most complete strangers.As well as booking flights and making hotel reservations, Hill had to apply for a passport. It will be his first trip abroad.Willock said shes happy to be able to help a stranger whos no longer a stranger.Im sure well be friends for life now, she said.Hill heads to Rio on Monday. His son celebrates his 23rd birthday Wednesday and competes on Thursday.A lot of Americans are getting gold, and I hope hes one of them, he said.---Associated Press writer Teresa Crawford in Chicago contributed to this report.

Obviously you want to win this game and itll set you up for the rest of the season, finish out strong. And hopefully we do.West Virginia has the Big 12s stingiest defense, allowing 20.6 points per game. Chances out that goes out the window in a series that has seen two high-scoring games in Morgantown.In 2012, Oklahoma needed a last-second TD pass by Landry Jones to beat the Mountaineers 50-49 in a game that featured 1,440 yards of offense .Two years later, the teams combined for 1,013 yards, Oklahomas Samaje Perine ran for 242 yards and four scores , and the Sooners won 45-33.Oklahoma has a 14-game conference winning streak. Its last three road games have been decided by 10 points or less.Theres always a certain challenge and energy to playing on the road to a rowdy crowd, said Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops. The guys kind of unify, and bond, and its sort of you against all of them, and you can get a charge out of that.---Some other things to note when the Sooners and Mountaineers meet on what could be a cold, rainy night:TITLE FOCUS: Oklahoma or No. 13 Oklahoma State can win the Big 12 title if one of them wins theiir remaining games. Cheap China Jerseys. The Sooners can wrap it up with a win Saturday coupled with an Oklahoma State loss at TCU. The Cowboys and Sooners meet Dec. 3.

West Virginias Skyler Howard has five interceptions in his last three but hopes to take advantage of a Sooners defense that is allowing an average of 297 yards.HONORING TAVON: Oklahoma wide receiver Dede Westbrook revealed this week that he wears No. 11 in honor of Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin, who currently wears the same number. Austin starred at West Virginia. In 2012, he had a school-record 344 rushing yards and league-record 572 all-purpose yards against the Sooners, a performance that Westbrook enjoyed watching while attending junior college. That guy was awesome, Westbrook said.WVU RBS: Coach Dana Holgorsen said he wasnt sure of the status of West Virginia running backs Rushel Shell and Justin Crawford, who playing sparingly last week with injuries. That left freshman Kennedy McKoy to get the bulk of the carries in a 24-20 win over Texas . McKoy ran for 73 yards and West Virginia had a season-low 114 yards on the ground in struggling to close out the Longhorns after building a two-touchdown lead.PASS RUSHERS APPLY: If the Mountaineers want to get to Mayfield, theyd better get busy.

The Phoenix Coyotes four-year ownership saga is over. Chuck Bednarik Youth Jersey . The papers are signed. The NHL has approved the deal. The teams fans, players and front office can finally relax. "Today is about turning our collective focus to the strong future of the Coyotes here in Arizona and clearly stop talking about ownership questions," Anthony LeBlanc, the Coyotes new CEO and alternate governor, said Tuesday at Jobing.com Arena. "Its time to stop talking about arena leases, its time to stop talking about financing options and where the team will play next year, and to focus on what is important to all of us, and that is what happens on the ice." The Coyotes completed an arduous process to find an owner on Monday, when LeBlanc, George Gosbee and the rest of IceArizona completed their purchase of the franchise from the NHL. The leagues Board of Governors then approved the sale to the Canadian investors, triggering a 15-year, $225 million lease agreement for Jobing.com Arena between the City of Glendale and Renaissance and Sports Entertainment, IceArizonas managing partner. The official announcement came on Tuesday, with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman joining Gosbee, LeBlanc, members of the Glendale city council -- the four who voted in favour of the lease agreement -- and employees from across the Coyotes organization, including general manager Don Maloney and defenceman Derek Morris. "This is a day that we believed since the beginning of all these proceedings four years ago should take place because it would be the right thing for the great fans that we have here in the Valley of the Sun," Bettman said. "Its important and has been important to the City of Glendale. And it was important to the National Hockey League, because we always believed in this market." Now its up to IceArizona to make it work in a market that tends to be winner-driven. A big step is keeping the Coyotes competitive. Even when Phoenix reached the playoffs the first two years without an owner, support fluctuated, from half-capacity crowds at Jobing.com Arena at times during the regular season to raucous support once the post-season started. The Coyotes showed what the Phoenix market could be like two years ago, when they used a blue-collar mentality to make a late-season push toward their first division title in 33 years as an NHL franchise. The desert dogs brought fans along with them on the bandwagon as they kept winning, becoming the darlings of the Valley as they marched toward the Western Conference finals for the first time. The NHL lockout, which stretched into January, dampened some of the Coyotes momentum last season and an inconsistent performance, one that left them four points short of the Wests final playoff spot, didnt help. Even before its deal was complete, RSE started taking steps toward making the Coyotes better. Maloney, assistant general manager Brad Treliving and coach Dave Tippett, along with his staff, all signed long-term deals to stay. Goalie Mike Smith, who had been hesitant to sign with ownership up in the air, signed a five-year deal before Glendales city council had approved the lease agreement. Once the lease was done, IceArizona loosened the purse strings a bit for Maloney and the front office, allowing them to make a big free-agent splash by signing top-line forward Mike Ribeiro. And, as the franchise moves forward, the new ownership group has vowed to give the Coyotes more financial flexibility. Phoenix still wont be one of the top-spending teams in the NHL, but itll certainly have more resources available than it did before. "Were definitely planning to increase the player payroll and were going to increase it year over year, but the reality is were not a club that plans to spend to the ceiling," LeBlanc said. "With Don Maloneys stewardship of the franchise, we expect to continue making this a very exciting, very competitive hockey team." The new ownership group also will try to expand the fan base. The teams name will be changed to the Arizona Coyotes sometime after next season and IceArizona will work to expand the franchises marketing efforts, something that had been limited while it was being run by the NHL. "For the first time in years with this franchise, theres no question it will be tied to Arizona; we have good, strong local ownership," LeBlanc said. "Quite frankly, it will be boots to the ground marketing of getting this product out." It should be easier now that the biggest step -- securing an owner -- is out of the way. Reggie White 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). Nico Rosberg is among a number of F1 drivers who hope Pirellis wet-weather testing this year produces a better extreme tyre for 2017.Sundays Brazilian Grand Prix was red flagged twice and featured five safety car periods as race control struggled to gauge whether the wet conditions were suitable for racing. Several drivers complained of aquaplaning, with Marcus Ericsson, Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen all spinning into the barriers during the race.The conditions were some of the worse F1 has seen this season, but a number of drivers pointed to the extreme-wet tyres tendency to aquaplane.They are very easy to aquaplane with, its not like its raining a lot, Raikkonen said following his incident. Weve said that many times, but it obviously also depends on the circuit and many things.If I compare to ten/twelve year ago those tyres could cope with this kind of rain with no issues, no aquaplaning. The aquaplaning is the biggest issue, if we have a bit of standing water we get zero grip. Thats it.Romain Grosjean, who spun on his way to the grid, added: The extreme tyre is a very poor tyre and there is no grip. You have to take a huge amount of risk to go to the intermediates because they are just faster. But, yes you cannot control the car in a straight line.Part of the problem has been a lack of wet weather tyre testing since Pirelli returned to the sport as the sole tyre supplier in 2011, but this year the Italian tyre company has completed six days of dedicated wet-weather testing to develop its 2017 tyre. Rosberg, who managed to catch a big slide when he aquaplaned on the uphill run to the pit straight in Brazil, hopes the dedicated wet-weather tests will produce better tyres.Its difficult because its ccompletely unpredictable when you go through a little bit more water -- you dont know whats going to happen, he said. Chuck Bednarik Womens Jersey. That makes it really challenging, but they [Pirelli] know that and they are working on it at the moment.Thats why they have been doing wet tests, to make some progress for next year. It would be good for the racing also, because then you dont need to red flag it and you can let the race go on. It will be a good thing.Red Bull boss Christian Horner also hopes progress can be made ahead of 2017, when Pirelli faces an even tougher challenge with a wider footprint that will be more susceptible to aquaplaning.You could see that the drivers were having big issues with aquaplaning on the extreme and the inter. Kimi crashed in front of us on the extreme. [Marcus] Ericsson was on the inter. So we conducted some wet testing for Pirelli at the beginning of the year to try and help, and it seems like there is still room for improvement on the extreme in extreme conditions.However, Lewis Hamilton, who won the race in Brazil without a single mistake, said the conditions were not as bad as they looked.This is Formula One and the rain conditions are the trickiest conditions. If everyone just went round and didnt make mistakes it would be too easy and then everyone could do it. We are going at some serious speeds and there is a lot of water to disperse by the tyres and the tyre just struggles; the faster we go, the harder it is for the tyres. This wasnt a particularly difficult race in terms of being wet, theres been much much worse races in terms of aquaplaning. ' ' '

JOLIET, Ill. Austin Seibert Jersey . -- Asked what drivers worry him as he seeks a second-straight Sprint Cup title, Kyle Busch identified Kyle Larson and Martin Truex Jr.Both compete for smaller teams that get engines and other technical support from the large, multi-car organizations. And their success heading into the start of NASCARs 10-race playoff Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway is starting to annoy the big boys.It hurts to be outrun by somebody in your equipment, six-time champion Jimmie Johnson said.Of the 16 drivers to qualify for the season-ending Chase, half are from teams outside the behemoth organizations of Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing and Team Penske.Its a slippery slope, Johnson said. I mean, I think that Gibbs and Hendrick and these bigger teams will really have to think hard about alliances that they put together.Hendrick, Johnsons team, makes engines for Chip Ganassi Racing, which employs Larson. Gibbs, Buschs boss, has an alliance with Furniture Row Racing and Truex.Stewart-Haas Racing, which has three drivers in the Chase, gets its engines from Hendrick and it has fueled a rivalry between Johnson and Kevin Harvick. But that agreement ends after the season when SHR shifts from Chevrolet to Ford, leaving for some awkward moments as the teams share information this season.The deals are in place to cut down on costs for the smaller teams and also provide overhead relief for the big teams while ensuring a healthy number of entrants, which had been declining.Ill use Stewart-Haas as an example for us. They get our best stuff, and theyre not a small organization. They have a huge engineering staff, Johnson said. So they take our best equipment, thats part of the deal, fully refined, what were racing, then their engineering staff gets to work on it and make it better.?Same thing is going on at Gibbs.?Theyre providing all that equipment to the 78 (Truex) car, and theyre smart people.?Thats pretty good, but Im going to tweak this and that, and they make it better yet.Its brought a different dynamic to the third year of the current Chase format, which calls for three rounds of elimination before the Nov. 20 finale at Homestead. Johnson, the No. 8 seed, is the highest-ranked Hendrick driver in the field.Johnson has had uncharacteristic mistakes this season as he aims for a seventh title, which would tie the record for NASCARs top circuit held by Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt.I dont like where were at, Johnson said. Were working hard.?Theres a lot of optimism and a lot of great things happening.?We just need to deliver consistently and execute at the track.?Busch has led the most laps this season and will start Sundays race from the pole after qualifying Friday was rained out. But Busch is far from comfortable with Truex having so much success in his own Toyota.Even though were top seed, we may not be the favorite right now, Busch said. Actually, Id probably look at the 78 car for having the most raw speed here as of late. Thats the guy were probably all chasing at the moment.Busch also had praise for Larson, who won at Michigan and joins Jamie McMurray to give Ganassi two drivers in the Chase for the first time. Busch called Larson a good fantasy league pick.Hes cheap but, man, he can definitely punch out the results, Busch said. And theyve shown that the last couple of weeks of having good cars and good speed and being right there in the running for the final finish.Larson, in his third season in the Sprint Cup, is confident entering his first Chase because of his success on 1.5-mile tracks like Chicagoland.Ive ran good at most all of them in the past, specially 2014 we had a good run in the last 10 races, Larson said.?Even last year there were a couple where we did well at.?I could have won Homestead last year had that caution not come out at the end.For the competitive Busch, the evening of the field has provided more motivation to beat the likes of Truex, who had a dominating win at Charlotte.Given that were within the same organization, same team, and have all the same stuff, its on us as the 18 team, Busch said, Its on us to be able to go out there and race and get the same or better results than they can.

Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC failed to make the postseason while Montreal Impact fell at the first hurdle losing heavily to Houston Dynamo in the Eastern Conference Knockout Round. RALEIGH, N.C. -- The San Jose Sharks are aiming to repeat their epic November road trip from a year ago.The soon-to-be Western Conference champions reeled off six consecutive road wins last season over a nine-day period after a mediocre start.Now, San Jose is 3-0-0 on its current six-game Eastern Conference swing, having outscored Washington, Florida and Tampa Bay -- three pretty good teams -- by a combined 10-3 heading into a game at Carolina on Tuesday night as part of another six-game road trip.Sharks goalie Martin Jones has a .959 save percentage during the road trip, raising his season save percentage to .913. He finished at .918 last season.They are one of the better teams in the league overall, not just in the West, Carolina coach Bill Peters said. It looks liked their same timing from a year ago, getting on a roll. They are a good veteran team and are good on the back end. (Defenseman) Brent Burns is a special player back there with the fact that hes up the ice a lot and is unpredictable and can shoot it, so we have to know where he is on the ice. They have a nice, deep team.Carolina, last in the Metropolitan Division and in the middle of a five-game homestand, has had surprising success against the Sharks, going 8-3 over the past 11 meetings despite missing the playoffs the last seven seasons.They are a good team and have had success in the past, but I dont know if you get extra motivated to play them, said Carolinas leading scorer, Jeff Skinner. You should be motivated anyway, but were all aaware how good a team they are, so you have to come in knowing its a good opportunity to rise to the challenge. Jarvis Landry Jersey. Peters didnt rule out the return of two-time All-Star defenseman Justin Faulk, although it is more likely Faulk could return Friday against the red-hot Montreal Canadiens.Hes close; he was able to do everything in practice but the battles, Peters said of his star defenseman, who has missed two games with an upper-body injury.Peters juggled his lines Saturday night in a 5-1 win against the Capitals after the Hurricanes had gotten off to another slow start to the season. The new line of Jordan Staal, Teuvo Teravainen and Sebatian Aho picked up 11 points vs. Washington.Were trying to find the right spot for a lot of different guys, Peters said.Defenseman Matt Tennyson made his Carolina debut against Washington, and he will be in action again Tuesday against his former team.He deserves the opportunity to stay in the lineup, Peter said. The whole trick is no matter how many minutes you get is to be productive on those minutes, and he managed the puck well the other night. He looked like he was real composed out there.On Monday, the Hurricanes terminated the contract of Jakub Nakladal. The 28-year-old defenseman was signed by Carolina as a free agent Oct. 9. He appeared in three games and did not register a point and was minus-4, averaging 14:30 of ice time. ' ' '

LAHAINA, Hawaii -- The Lahaina Civic Center sits on a hill above Honoapiilani Highway in western Maui, barely visible among the tropical trees and police station. Pas Cher Air Max 2019 Noir .The outside of the building is nondescript even up close, looking more like a school auditorium than a basketball arena. Same thing on the inside, with its upstairs, YMCA-style lockers and cage-like windows overlooking the court.Yet every November, the Lahaina Civic Center transforms into something else: one of college basketballs most raucous venues.Its like a high school gym being there, Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said Sunday, the eve of the Maui Invitational. The noise is loud, people are close to you. I think its neat. This time of year you want to play in front of an excited crowd, an arena where everything is close. Theres just so much you can gain from an experience like this and in a building like that. Theres really nothing like it.The Maui Invitational has become the top in-season tournament on the college basketball schedule, annually luring some of the best teams from across the country to the second-largest island in the Hawaiian chain.This years eight-team field has combined for 14 national championships and 40 Final Fours, and three teams are ranked in the top 10 of The Associated Press poll : No. 4 Oregon, No. 5 North Carolina and No. 9 Wisconsin.The three-day tournament, which starts Monday, also includes Tennessee, Oklahoma State, UConn, Georgetown and host Chaminade.At the center of this basketball-topia is the 2,400-seat Lahaina Civic Center.Built in 1972, the building is used as a public civic center 50 weeks out of the year, hosting high school basketball leagues, volleyball games, karate practices and community events.The two weeks of the Maui Invitational brings some changes to the civic center -- signs and banners, TV lights, cushioned chairs in front of the bleachers -- but its still nowhere near matching the massive, modern arenas found across the rest of college basketball. It didnt even have air conditioning until the 2005 tournament -- after North Carolina coach Roy Williams complained about condensation on the floor.Its hard to adapt an old building with such character into a 2016 basketball arena that everyones used to, said Mark Starsiak, director of events for KemperLesnik, which operates the Maui Invitational.I tell teams every year: `Its the most unique experience youll have walking from the locker room all season. If you have any questions, Ill try to answer them.Calling the Lahaina Civic Center quirky is like saying basketball players are tall.The court, outside of the massive Maui Invitational logo at midcourt, is like a high school hardwood, with volleyball court and vertical basketball lines crisscrossing the court.The seats are like something out of Hoosiers, old bleachers that are practically on top of the court and only go up a dozen-or-so rows.The locker rooms are unlike anything in college basketball.Those are on the second floor, up a narrow stairwell that leads to a common area with taekwondo and wrestling lines on the floor, with nothing but a black curtain separating the teams. The common room also has cage-like windows that overlook the floor, though the view has been obscured a bit with the massive Hawaiian-themed banner at the west side of the arena.The lockers are the old, metal bring-your-own variety, with four concrete chairs, a single whiteboard and showers that dont always work.Because of the small confines, teams waiting for the next game have to set up in the common area and often can be seen at the bottom of the stairwells as the previous game is about to end.Leave your strategy for the hotel because your opponent is right through there, Starsiak said, pointing at the black curtain. Anything you say can and will be used against you on the court.With all the pampering teams and players usually get, it might seem like the civic centers inconveniences would be a drawback.Instead, the quirkiness and quaintness adds to the charm of the building and the tournament, often making the players feel like theyre back in high school.And because of the venues size, the noise and atmosphere inside the Lahaina Civic Center is like nothing else in college basketball.The environments great, Georgetown coach John Thompson III said. The fans are right on top of you, you feel the emotion of the fans the whole time. Much like this entire tournament, the game is a unique experience.---For more AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org Pas Cher Air Max 270 Noir .

HOOVER, Ala. -- The trajectory of Kevin Sumlins tenure at Texas A&M has not been going in the right direction.The fifth-year coach hopes a transfer quarterback and some talented defensive linemen can get the Aggies back into the conversation as a serious threat in the Southeastern Conference.I like where we are, Sumlin said Tuesday at SEC Media Days. I like the chemistry of this football team. I like where the locker room is. I like where their mind is.Senior Trevor Knight was named the teams starting quarterback in the spring after coming to Texas A&M as a graduate transfer just a few months before. Knight previously played at Oklahoma, where he started 15 games over three seasons and threw for more than 3,000 career yards.The 6-foot-1 Knight was needed after Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray both transferred during a tumultuous stretch in December. Hes thrilled to have another chance at leading a team after an up-and-down career with the Sooners.Its been a leap of faith in a lot of ways, but looking back on it, it has been perfect, Knight said. I did get to step in and the culture at A&M, specifically the team, wrapped their arms around me and let me know that I was a part of the family.Knight should have plenty of playmakers around him: Sophomore receiver Christiian Kirk was the 2015 SEC Freshman of the Year after catching 80 passes for 1,009 yards and seven touchdowns, and Josh Reynolds (51 catches, 907 yards, five TDs) and Ricky Seals-Jones (45 catches, 560 yards, four TDs) also return. Air Max Pas Cher Destockage. Offense hasnt usually been a problem during Sumlins time in College Station, and the Aggies put up enough points last year to go 8-5 overall. Instead, its the defense that is a big reason they have an 11-13 SEC record over the past three seasons.Sumlin hopes that will change this year because Texas A&M has two of the leagues best pass rushers in junior Myles Garrett and senior Daeshon Hall.The 6-foot-5, 262-pound Garrett led the SEC with 12 1/2 sacks, 19 1/2 tackles for a loss and five forced fumbles. Sumlin said one of the best things about Garrett is hes a rarity in college football: a low-maintenance star.All he wants is maybe his headphones and to know what time practice is, when to go to class, when meetings are and when game time is and wheres the food, Sumlin said.-----Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP-----AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
