Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. http://www.cheapairmaxtnforsale.com/ . The Clippers were angry about blowing a big lead; the Kings didnt like being in that kind of hole and nearly digging themselves out only to lose. NICEVILLE, Fla. -- Providence got physical with No, 7 Virginia and scored 52 points, the most anyone has had this season against the nations top-ranked defense. It wasnt enough.Virginia beat the Friars 63-52 to win the Emerald Coast Classic on Saturday night.Virginias very, very fundamentally sound, Providence coach Ed Cooley said. They know each others strengths, weaknesses -- very, very disciplined team. One of the most disciplined teams that weve played against in a long time. ... They are going to be hell for somebody to beat.London Perrantes, selected the tournaments most valuable player, and Darius Thompson scored 11 points each to lead the Cavaliers.Virginia (6-0) had been giving up only 39.2 points per game.Providence (4-2) topped the 51 that UNC Greensboro scored against the Cavaliers, but had trouble penetrating the tight defense that denies post touches and forces contested jumpers.Mamadi Diakite added 10 points for Virginia.Jalen Lindsey led Providence with 18 points. Rodney Bullock added 16, but that was short of his 20.4 average.They are physical, really physical, offensively and defensively, Perrantes said about the Friars.He said the rough play, though, will only help the Cavaliers prepare for other tough opponents that will be coming up.Cooley also had some high praise for Perrantes, saying he may be the most poised player Ive seen in college basketball in a long, long, long time.Virginia coach Tony Bennett credited the Cavaliers balance for getting them through some challenging moments in the game including a 9-0 Providence run to start the second half that cut Virginias lead to five points. Nike Tns Wholesale. Its not who we play, its how we play, Bennett said. We played pretty solid, but we had a lapse that could be very costly.BIG PICTUREVirginia: Bolstered by strong performances from bench players Marial Shayok, the team scoring leader averaging 11.2 points going into Saturdays game, and freshman Kyle Guy, the Cavaliers have shown little affect from the graduation of four players from last seasons 29-win team.Providence: Losing to a highly touted Virginia team does nothing to take the luster off a strong early season showing. That includes a dramatic come-from-behind 60-51 victory over previously undefeated Memphis in the Emerald Coast semifinals.POLL IMPLICATIONSAfter breezing through four relatively weak opponents to open the season, Virginia did the same in its first major challenge, beating the Big Tens Iowa 74-41 in the semifinals Friday. Taking down Providence from the Big East can only enhance the Cavaliers chances of moving up from their No. 7 ranking if any of the teams ahead of them stumble.UP NEXT:Providence: The Friars host New Hampshire on Wednesday.Virginia: Host Ohio State in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge on Wednesday.

OXON HILL, Md. Wholesale NFL Jerseys . -- John Schuerholz was perfectly happy at his job, teaching world geography and English to eighth graders in suburban Baltimore.Even so, one day he decided to mail it in.A letter, that is. Something the one-time Towson University second baseman wrote to the owner of the hometown Orioles, saying he really wanted to work in baseball, that he might be able to do some good.A half-century after he dropped that note with the post office, the game delivered its biggest prize: Schuerholz was elected to the Hall of Fame.It all started with that letter written during a class break at North Point Junior High in Dundalk, he reminisced Sunday.Here I am, 51 years later, he said.Schuerholz was the first general manager to assemble teams that won the World Series in both leagues, capturing crowns with Kansas City in 1985 and Atlanta in 1995.His Braves won a hard-to-believe 14 straight division championships, a run that began in his first season with them. Prior to that, Atlanta hadnt won so much as a single playoff game in its 25-year existence.I always had aspirations to be a successful general manager, the 76-year-old Schuerholz said.In 26 years as a GM, his teams won 16 division titles and six pennants.Schuerholz was picked by all 16 voters on a veterans committee at the winter meetings. Former Commissioner Bud Selig also was elected to the Hall by the Todays Game Era panel, and theyll be enshrined on July 30 in Cooperstown, New York.Schuerholz praised everyone who helped him achieve the honor, including his new Hall teammates -- Atlanta pitchers Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and John Smoltz, plus manager Bobby Cox.Al Kaline, Joe Torre and Pat Gillick were among those who quickly reached out with congratulations, welcoming him to the club.Under Schuerholz, the Braves revamped the culture of the organization, and boosted baseball all across the South. His management strategy focused on stability and resisted knee-jerk change.The right plan, the right people, he said.In 2007, Schuerholz left his job as GM and became team president. He had only one regret, that the Braves turned those 14 division titles into just one World Series ring.What else is there? Schuerholz said at the time. It would have been, unequivocally, the complete validation of the grand nature of this franchise. Nobody could have said anything about the Atlanta Braves and ended the sentence with the word `but.Schuerholz is now a vice chairman with the team, helping prepare for its move to SunTrust Park next season.A son of a former Philadelphia Athletics minor league second baseman, Schuerholz has stamped his name in baseball. His son, Jon, played second base in the minors for the Braves and now works as a club executive.An avid golfer and fan of the street-corner songs that harmonized in the 1950s, Schuerholz was teaching in 1966 when he sent that letter to Orioles owner Jerry Hoffberger.The note got passed around the front office, and landed him a spot in minor league operations. In 1969, he joined the expansion Royals and became GM a dozen years later, followed by his success with the Braves.No matter than his first goal -- playing in the majors -- never panned out.I came to reckoning, he said. The scouts were more right than I was. Charles Harris Jersey . Fernandez, coached in Toronto by former two-time Olympic silver medallist Brian Orser, scored 267.11 points and is the first champion to successfully defend since Russias Evgeny Plushenko in 2005 and 2006. Kenyan Drake Jersey . Aduriz headed home Markel Susaetas cross in the sixth minute to open the scoring at San Mames Stadium. He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat. http://www.cheapfootballdolphinsjerseys.com/?tag=authentic-andre-branch-jersey . Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on the indoor hard-court at Belgrade Arena. The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1. LOS ANGELES -- One win away. The Chicago Cubs are one win away from their first World Series since the Harry Truman administration. Drink in those words.One win away.But also feel free to ask yourself: Are those the most beautiful words in the universe? Or are they the most scary words in the universe?Theyre beautiful and special because the last World Series to stop by Wrigley Field happened in 1945. In the 70 years since, only two other Cubs teams have ever found themselves where this team finds itself.One win away.But thats also the scary part. The 1984 Cubs were one win away too. And then jumped out to the lead in each of the next three games. Only to get swallowed up by Steve Garveys homer, Leon Durhams error and the weight of history.Nineteen years later, the 2003 Cubs also found themselves one win away. Then Josh Beckett happened. And Steve Bartman happened. And, well, you know how that turned out.So in Chicago, those magic words, one win away, come with a history lesson. And we regret to inform these Cubs, the 2016 Cubs, that theyll be hearing all about that history lesson right up to the first pitch of Game 6 at Wrigley on an electrified Saturday night. Not that they recall signing up for this history class.That history thing is lost on me, joked catcher David Ross, one of the few men in his locker room who has been in this position before (with the 2013 Red Sox). I dont think I made good grades in history as a kid.Ross spoke those words Thursday evening in a clubhouse pulsing with energy after an 8-4 thumping of the Dodgers in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series, a game that lifted these Cubs to this beautiful and scary place.The beauty was a joyous plane ride home, for the chance to play Games 6 and, if necessary, 7 at Wrigley and do something that would change the lives of millions of people. And the thought of what that would mean, for all of them, was powerful stuff.Its one of the main reasons why I signed here, said Ben Zobrist, because I knew the history, and I wanted to be part of something special that hasnt been done in a long, long time. Its been an elusive championship. But were not there yet. Oh, right. Theyre not there yet. Good point. To get there, all they have to do is beat Clayton Kershaw on Saturday and then Rich Hill on Sunday -- if there is a Sunday. That should be a blast.In the two games earlier in this NLCS in which they faced those two, the Cubs sent 46 hitters to the plate against them. And exactly four of those 46 got what the sabermetricians like to call a hit.So thats the scary half of this equation. In these next two games, they probably wont be seeing a whole lot of Joe Blanton and Luis Avilan. The mission starts with a Game 6 steel-cage match against Kershaw, who has spent this October rewriting his own postseason legacy.We know hes going to challenge us, and hell be going out there for blood, Dexter Fowler said. So we just have to do our best and see what happens.If theyd like a little slice of upbeat history, we can toss this tidbit their way. In the past decade, seven teams have been in this exact position -- heading home for Games 6 and 7, needing to win just one to make it to the World Series. All seven of those teams finished the job. And only the 2008 Rays -- a team managed by some guy named Joe Maddon -- even needed to play a seventh game to do it.On the other hand, those teams also had something else in common. None of them were the Cubs. Youu can add your own punchline. Wholesale Dolphins Jerseys USA. h, but not these Cubs. From the day these Cubs arrived in spring training, there has always been something different about them. They had their GPS set for this place, in this moment.So this group has been shoving aside the goats and the curses for all those months in the journey to reach a game that very few men who have worn this uniform have ever gotten to play. And now they already can smell the special essence that will be in the air Saturday night. Its the best challenge in all of baseball, Ross said. Its the Holy Grail of championships, right? You win a World Series in Chicago, I mean, thats the tops right now. I just think as a competitor, you want to be on the biggest stage -- unless youre scared. Maybe if youre scared, you dont want to be. But we dont have any dudes in here who are scared.Nevertheless, they havent played a more challenging game all season than the game they are about to play Saturday night. And this is where the handful of men in their clubhouse who have known the meaning of these one-win-away moments have to make sure the young guys around them dont get overwhelmed by the magnitude of what they have a chance to do.All you can stress is the importance of winning every inning, said their assistant hitting coach, Eric Hinske, a man who played in the postseason for four teams and won World Series titles in Boston and New York. The good teams Ive been on, guys like Jason Varitek and Derek Jeter talked about winning every inning, getting to the next pitch. And thats what you do. Youve got to simplify things. You cant look at the grand scheme of everything. Youve got to stay in the moment.Ross, who won a World Series in Boston, keeps showering the young guys around him with almost that same mantra -- that this is no time to let your mind wander farther than the field youre playing on.Asked what advice he gives the phenoms in his clubhouse, he replied: Dont even think about the World Series. Youve got Clayton Kershaw on the docket for Saturday. And hes going to be as locked in as anybody. Hes one of the best in the game. So well celebrate once we go [to the Series]. But youve got to focus on the game. You start looking at the big picture and youll get lost, and itll swallow you up, and it will be gone before you know it.Ha. Tell it to the 42,000 people who will charge into Wrigley Field on Saturday night. They too have waited a lifetime to witness a game like this. But they dont need Eric Hinske or David Ross to tell them these dreams are never guaranteed to come true. Then again, you know the best part about history? You can rewrite it. And you know how close this team is to doing that?One win away.Were trying to write our own story, Hinske said. And this is us -- the 2016 Cubs. Weve been together for eight months now. But weve got to win Saturday.Four of the 25 players who will wear their uniform Saturday night have won a World Series: Ross, Jon Lester, John Lackey and Zobrist. But when Zobrist was asked if hed ever shown his teammates what that World Series ring he won last year in Kansas City looks like, he shook his head.Its something that Ill show friends and family, he said. And its something that Ill wear in the offseason, and probably when Im done with my career. But for now, were keeping these fingers free.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Air VaporMax Sale . -- Trailing midway through the fourth quarter, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema wasnt all that concerned about style points or margin of victory.Not with another shocking loss like less than a year ago to Toledo still fresh on his mind.Behind a pair of fourth-down conversions in the fourth quarter, the Razorbacks (1-0) managed to avoid another early season disappointment to a non-Power 5 conference team on Saturday -- rallying for a 21-20 victory over Louisiana Tech (0-1).I know everybody would have, including myself at the end of the day, would have liked to come out of here with a larger margin of victory, Bielema said. But ... I knew (the Bulldogs) were going to be a good football team, very well coached.The Razorbacks rallied thanks to a pair of nerve-wracking calls by Bielema, particularly with first-time starter Austin Allen under center for Arkansas.Bielemas faith in his junior starter was rewarded, especially after Allen connected with tight end Jeremy Sprinkle from four yards out on fourth down to give Arkansas the 21-20 with 6:37 remaining in the game.Im glad (Bielema) called it, Allen said. Wed been practicing that play all week, everybody knew what they were doing and we did it perfectly. It worked out for us.Despite the go-ahead touchdown, the Razorbacks didnt secure the win for good until another fourth-down call by Bielema with just over a minute remaining.Facing fourth-and-inches at its own 37, Arkansas converted a first down with a power run by 240-pound running back Kody Walker -- allowing the Razorbacks to run out the clock and exhale a welcomed sigh of relief following last years early stumbles.You make the fourth-down decision looking to have success, Bielema said. The last one, its just a gut feel. I just had a feeling we were going to have a nice push, and it ended up sealing the game.With 18 wins over the last two seasons, including a pair of bowl victories, Louisiana Tech didnt expect to enter Saturday as the usual kind of early season cupcake for the Razorbacks.And the Bulldogs didnt play like it, either.Freshman JMar Smith, playing in place of suspended starter Ryan Higgins, finished 19 of 31 for 212 yards passing for Louisiana Tech -- helping the Conference USA school take a 20-14 lead in the third quarter after a 20-yard field goal by kicker Jonathan Barnes.However, Barnes missed another kick off the left upright from 39 yards that would have put the Bulldogs up 23-14 in the fourth quarter.That gave hope to Arkansas, which responded with a 13-play, 77-yard touchdown drive -- capped by Allen finding Sprinkle on a throwback to the left side of the end zone.Allen finished 20-of-29 passing for 191 yards and a pair of touchdowns in his debut as the Razorbacks starter, but he also threw a pair of first-half interceptions that led to Louisiana Tech touchdowns.Rawleigh Williams led Arkansas with 96 yards rushing on 24 carries, including a touchdown.THE TAKEAWAYLA. TECH: Minus 13 starters from a year ago, and with Higgins on the bench, the Bulldogs looked every bit as good as its teams that have won nine games in each of the last two seasons. Smith had little problem picking apart Arkansas defense, with wide receiver Trent Taylor leading the Bulldogs with eight catches for 78 yards.I think we have an awful lot of positive things to build on, but I dont think this a game we wanted to be close, Louisiana Tech coach Skip Holtz said. We dont want to be close, we want to win.ARKANSAS: The Razorbacks entered the season with three new starting offensive linemen, and their inexperience showed on Saturday. Arkansas allowed four sacks of Allen in the close victory, and it managed only 106 yards rushing on 40 carries -- a significant concern moving forward into Southeastern Conference play.UP NEXTLA. TECH: The Bulldogs take a break from Power 5 conference competition when they face South Carolina State in their home opener, a week before traveling to face Big 12 Conference member Texas Tech.ARKANSAS: Life doesnt get any easier for the Razorbacks, who travel to Texas to take on No. 13 TCU. Red Air VaporMax 2018 On Sale . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. Yellow Air VaporMax 2018 Outlet .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Chinese wheelchair racer Zou Lihong captured her third medal and first individual gold of the Rio Paralympics on Sunday, beating American Tatyana McFadden in a photo finish in the womens marathon.On a course looping along sun-soaked Copacabana Beach, Zou and McFadden spent the race in a lead pack of eight competitors and then sprinted to the finish. The pair finished in identical times of 1 hour, 38 minutes, 44 seconds. But after they crossed the finish line, Zou, ahead by a whisker, raised an arm in victory.Amanda McGrory of the United States was third in 1:38:45.The 32-year-old Zou, a world champion last year at 5,000 meters and 800 meters, took bronze in the 400 meters in Rio. She also was part of Chinas gold medal-winning 4 X 400-meter relay.It was very technical course because its so flat. I tried to make a couple of moves in the beginning, but everyone came together so that wasnt working, said McFadden, who bolted ahead briefly right at the starting gun. I knew athletes were waiting at the end to sprint so Im proud of myself for pulling the last three miles and taking home a silver.Entering the games with her sights set on seven gold medals in every wheelchair racing event, from the 100 meters on up, McFadden finished with six medals, four gold and two silver.The only race in which she didnt medal was the 4 X 400 relay, after the U.S. team was disqualified due to a lane violation. Her other silver was in the 100 meters, her first event. In that race, McFadden couldnt completely close the gap after Chinese racer Liu Wenjun got out to an excellent sstart. Cheap Air VaporMax China. Its been amazing, especially to medal in all six events from the 100 to the marathon, and its been amazing to medal silver in both events because theyre so opposite, McFadden said.Of all her events, McFadden has performed best in the marathon, although this is her first Paralympic medal in the race. She finished ninth in the 2012 London Paralympics.In 2013, she made history when she was the first person -- able-bodied or otherwise -- to win all four major marathons, Boston, New York, Chicago and London, in a single year. She then repeated the feat two times over for a grand total of 12 marathon titles in three years.McFadden set Paralympic records in the 800, 1,500 and 5,000 meters in Rio, and was part of American podium sweeps twice, in the 1,500 and 5,000.Born with spina bifida, McFadden is paralyzed from the waist down and spent the first six years of her life in a Russian orphanage. She was adopted by Deborah McFadden, who brought her back to the United States and raised her with her longtime partner, Bridget OShaughnessey, in Maryland.In the mens wheelchair marathon, which started a minute before the womens race, Marcel Hug of Switzerland won his second Rio gold and fourth medal of the games, finishing in a time of 1 hour, 26 minutes, 16 seconds.---Anna Pitingolo is a journalism student at Penn State University. Penn State and Georgia are partnering with The Associated Press to supplement coverage of the 2016 Paralympics.

Cronulla veteran Michael Ennis has called for a re-think of the NRLs final stadium policy and for September football to be brought to the Shire.The Sharks are flying high in top spot following 14 straight wins and seemingly headed towards earning a home game in week one of the finals.However under NRL rules, any Sydney team that earns the right to a home final must take the game to one of the NSW capitals big stadiums - either Allianz or ANZ Stadium.Ennis said that was a slap in the face to the Southern Cross Group Stadium faithful who have shown up in their droves to support the joint premiership favourites this year.I think our fans deserve a home semi-final, Ennis said.If we work hard enough and continue to do what were doing at the moment and earn the right to get through this competition, those guys need to be rewarded with a home semi-final.We love playing here and they love coming here.The difference between getting 22,000 or 23,000 at Allianz (Stadium), compared to a full house here at 20,000 - commercially ttheres not a lot of difference but the atmosphere and everything else that comes with it is what the players deserve.

He has taken his case to coach Shane Flanagan and chief executive Lyall Gorman and asked them to lobby the NRL to allow the Sharks - should they finish in the top two - to play a home final at their home ground.He admitted that it is an uphill battle to get the NRL to make an exception but says it is a battle the Sharks need to fight.The Sharks have in years passed taken their home semi-finals to Allianz Stadium at Moore Park.Flanagans side are in first with 34 points, four wins ahead of third-placed North Queensland with seven games to play, putting them in the box seat for a top two finish.Our fans have turned out at every game this year - massive crowds and they really get behind us, Ennis said.Id love those guys have the opportunity to see a semi-final here.

He will replace Casey Mears as the driver for the Richard Childress Racing affiliate.Mears had a deal with Germain and sponsor Geico through 2018, but a frustrating season with Mears finishing 28th in the standings -- as well as likely significant support from RCR for Dillon, a grandson of RCR owner Richard Childress -- spurred the change.I want to thank Casey Mears for everything hes done for our race team over the past six years, team owner Bob Germain said in a statement. Hes been an integral part of our growth and a great representative for Geico and our many partners.Bringing Ty on board is an exciting opportunity for us and we are committed to giving him all the resources he needs to reach his full potential.

PITTSBURGH -- Antonio Browns shoe game rarely has been on point lately. Cheap Ultra Boost 4.0 .The league told the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver to remove his Muhammad Ali-inspired cleats in favor of a standard Nike shoe on Sunday, according to Dean Blandino, the NFLs senior vice president of officiating.Brown wore the Ali cleats for the games first two series but played the rest of the first half in white-and-black cleats.I thought it was OK, but ... I made the adjustment, Brown said following the Steelers 31-13 win over the?New York Jets.?This is the fourth time the NFL has had an issue with Browns footwear. In Week 1, he was fined for wearing baby blue cleats in a win over the Washington Redskins. In a Week 3 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Brown wore baby blue cleats with the faces of his children displayed on them. An NFL uniform inspector told him to remove them.?In the following weeks, Brown wore black-and-gold cleats, but with special designs -- one honoring legendary golfer Arnold Palmer last week, and Ali this week. Last week, Brown was told to remove his Palmer cleats in a win over the Kansas City Chiefs.If a player refuses to alter his uniform at the request of the inspector, he will be sidelined for the rest of the game.There are rules and guidelines youve got to follow. Ive just got to follow the rules, Brown said.?This season, Brown has faced nearly $50,000 in fines for excessive touchdown celebrations and uniform violations.Asked why there was no accompanying celebration after his fourth-quarter touchdown put Pittsburgh up 24-13 on Sunday, Brown replied:?I can do what I want. Its America. Its how I was feeling today. Its a long game. Its a tough game. It wasnt the time to really put the pumps in. Cheap Ultra Boost 2018 .

Josh McCown will start at quarterback for the winless Cleveland Browns?on Sunday against the New York Giants.Coach Hue Jackson said that although Robert Griffin III?will practice, he has not been cleared for contact or to play in a game. Rookie Cody Kessler had his second concussion in five games and is out indefinitely.We know Cody is in concussion protocol, and our medical professionals will advise us on the best way to move forward with him, Jackson said.Jackson also said he was not pleased with comments from receiver Terrelle Pryor, who said after Sundays loss to Pittsburgh that having the quarterbacks hit as often as they were was bullcrap and that he was tired of seeing the quarterbacks get hit.Because thats not Terrelles job, Jackson said. I know hes frustrated and we all are, and no doubt we need to protect our quarterback. But thats not for him to say. Lets focus on ourselves and support each other. Thats what good teams do, and thats what were going to work to become.Jackson said he had a talk with Pryor on Monday.He was awesome, as always, Jackson said. I think sometimes, like most people, after the game in the heat of the moment, youre a little frustrated and maybe you say some things you wish you hadnt. I understand its coming from a good place. I know that no one wants to see our quarterbacks get hit. But I think everybodys got to let me be the judge of that.The Steelers had eighht sacks with 14 hits on Kessler and McCown. Cheap Ultra Boost China. In some cases, the Steelers won matchups against linemen. At times it seemed the quarterbacks held the ball too long. And on some plays the Steelers had the advantage of a powerful linebacker being blocked by a back.We all have a part in it, Jackson said.The coach seemed less upset by comments from Joe Thomas, who said the teams offseason strategy was to let experienced linemen go and that then you got to lie in the bed that you made.Me and Joe have a great relationship, Jackson said. Again, I just think all of our players are frustrated. They want to win. I think its coming from a good place.Jackson said emphatically that this was not a sign that the stress of being winless was taking a toll on unity.Were going to continue to have each others back, Jackson said. I got to do that better, too. Its an every-day and an every-situation deal for me and this football team. Well work our way through it, and well stay together. Well stay committed, and were going to be better.He added that he firmly believes he is the right person to turn around the Browns.I understand how our fans and all people feel, he said. Im not running from this. Im going to run to it. Im going to deal with it head-on, and Im going to fix this.
