., put on a dazzling display of outside

  • LAWRENCE, Kan. Teppo Numminen Jersey . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins exacted a little bit of revenge on Texas. So did the rest of the Kansas Jayhawks. On the eve of his 19th birthday, the freshman from Vaughan, Ont., put on a dazzling display of outside shooting and rim-rattling dunks. Wiggins finished with 21 points to lead the eighth-ranked Jayhawks to an 85-54 rout of No. 19 Texas, helping them seize control of the Big 12 race. It was a far different outcome than the first time the teams met, three weeks ago in Austin. Texas rolled to an 81-69 victory, and Wiggins managed seven points on 2-for-12 shooting. "We wanted to come out aggressive," Wiggins said. "Last time we got embarrassed at their place. We wanted to do the same thing to them, win every minute of every possession." They just about accomplished it. Joel Embiid added 13 points, seven rebounds and six blocks for the Jayhawks (21-6, 12-2), who lead the league race by three games with four to play. Kansas can wrap up at least a share of its 10th straight title when Oklahoma visits Allen Fieldhouse on Monday night. "That was our first goal to start the year off, to win a 10th straight Big 12 championship," said Frank Mason, who had 14 points off the bench. "Thats still our goal." Jonathan Holmes scored 17 points and Cameron Ridley had 11 for Texas, but they were about the only guys wearing burnt orange who seemed to solve the Jayhawks gritty man-to-man defence. Freshman guard Isaiah Taylor was held to just five points on 1-for-14 shooting, while Javan Felix was 2 of 9 from the field and finished with six points. "I talk about our guys not being as tough as wed like them to be, which were not, but they are prideful," Kansas coach Bill Self said. "Texas whipped us down there the first time. I said all along this game wasnt about the league race as much as it was playing Texas." The game actually played out in similar fashion to the first meeting, only this time it was Kansas that played flawlessly and Texas that looked like a mess. After the Longhorns jumped out to an 8-3 lead, they managed just one field goal over an 11-minute stretch as the Jayhawks launched a 32-5 run that put the game away. "They were really good, obviously, and you got to know after we played as well as we played against them the first time they were going to be ready to play," Texas coach Rick Barnes said. Wiggins led the way for Kansas, at one point scoring 12 points during a particularly brutal 14-0 spurt. He did it in dazzling fashion, too: There was the soaring fast-break dunk, the back-to-back 3-pointers, and the alley-oop jam off a pass from Wayne Selden Jr. that left the crowd roaring so loudly that the field house floor was shaking. "When I score early, it brings a lot of confidence to my game, especially when I hit a 3. I get on fire," Wiggins said. "My teammates did a good job of getting me the ball." By the time Connor Lammert finally hit a 3-pointer with about 5 minutes left in the half, the lead had ballooned to 28-13 and the Longhorns had exhausted nearly all their timeouts. "It can get away from you quick," Holmes said. "One or two possessions, you can look and youre down by six, eight and then 10 and then the game is over pretty much after that." Just how bad were the Longhorns in the first half? Try 6 of 29 from the field and 5 of 12 from the foul line, with five turnovers and three assists. They were dominated on the boards, dominated in the paint and, well, dominated just about everywhere else, too. Taylor, who had 23 points in the first meeting with Kansas, was 0 for 10 from the field as the Jayhawks built a 46-18 halftime advantage. And even when Texas managed to score -- as it did out of the break -- Kansas often answered with two buckets in return. It kept going like that throughout the second half as the Jayhawks outscored Texas 26-0 in transition and 38-22 in the paint, allowing them to empty their bench early. "I think we should give a refund to the fans," Barnes said. "Topeka YMCA probably would have given them a little better game, because we didnt give them a good game at all." Connor Hellebuyck Jersey . Justine finished first with a score of 22.44 while Chloe was second with 21.66 points. Defending champion Hannah Kearney of the U.S., was third at 21.49. A third Dufour-Lapointe sister, Maxime, failed to make the final group and finished 12th while Audrey Robichaud of Quebec City was 10th. Ben Chiarot Jersey . But luckily for the Canadian squad, one goal was all it needed. Winnipegs Sophie Schmidt scored the winner off a Diana Matheson corner kick to seal Canadas third-place spot in the Torneio Internacional de Futebol Feminino in Brazil on Sunday.MONTREAL - The seven-game losing streak was over for the Montreal Impact and no one looked more relieved than Marco Di Vaio. The 38-year-old strikers goal in the 84th minute was the difference as the Impact downed the Chicago Fire 1-0 on a wet Saturday night at Saputo Stadium that saw a promising debut by new Argentine designated player Ignacio Piatti. It was Montreals first victory since a 3-0 decision at home over Houston on June 29. Italian striker Di Vaio had a goal in that game as well. "Its been a long time that we won a game with my goal, so Im really happy for me, for the team, the coach and the fans because we needed it," said Di Vaio. "Its a good win and it will give us more confidence." The Impact (4-14-5) remained 10th and last in the MLS Eastern Conference behind the ninth-place Fire (4-6-13). But the team got its fifth shutout of the season, after allowing 15 goals during the losing run. "Its definitely a monkey off our back," said goalkeeper Evan Bush. "A lot of the games lately, people say we havent been playing with energy, but a lot of that has been that we were putting extra pressure on ourselves to get results. "But to get that result, I think it will open things up for us to play a little more confidently." What had been mostly a defensive struggle broke open when substitute Maxim Tissot sent fullback Eric Miller in on the left side. The rookies dogged battle with Razva Cocis saw the ball squirt out to Di Vaio, who calmly slotted in his fifth goal of the season from near the penalty spot. Piatti got a loud welcome from the announced crowd of 17,132. The Argentine midfielder had some encouraging moments, particularly when he combined with Di Vaio, before he was substituted in the 54th minute for Andres Romero. Di Vaio, whose contract is up at the end of the season, was asked if he would consider extending his stay in Montreal to play an extra season with the Italian and Spanish-speaking Piatti, who inked a three and a half year deal. He said it would be difficult at his age. "We already had a little talk between us," Piatti said through a translator. "I asked Marco if he will stay, but Marco said its tough because of his family. But I said maybe we can find a solution. "t;Marcos a great player. Laurie Boschman Jersey. You give him the ball and you get it back right away. There was a chemistry there, but theres still a lot of work to do to develop the chemistry." The 29-year-old Piatti, who arrived Wednesday after helping the San Lorenzo club in Argentina to the Copa Libertatores final, said he was not surprised by the pace and physical style of MLS, but said he would need time to adapt to his new team. "Its a first game, I felt pretty good," said Piatti, who had an ice pack on left knee at the bench after he came off. "The team played well as a group." His best chance came only six minutes into the game. Piatti found himself in the Chicago area after a run down the left side, but wasnt able to get full control of the ball. The victory got a busy week off a to a good start. The Impact travel to El Salvador to face CD FAS in a CONCACAF Champions League match on Wednesday and then head to New York to play the Red bulls on Saturday. "It helps a lot because we had lost seven games in a row in MLS and now we have a big game in San Salvador," said Tissot. "Hopefully we can keep this going." Chicago, which ended a three-game league unbeaten run, was coming off a 6-0 defeat Wednesday to Seattle in U.S. Open Cup play. The Fire played with ardour, taking away the middle of the field and launching counterattacks, and made the Impact work for their chances. One came in the 60th, when Felipe sent Romero on a run to the edge of the area and his low shot needed a reaching, one-handed save by Sean Johnson. Bush had a hairy moment in the 38th minute when Lovel Palmers shot from the right side got through his hands, but the ball was cleared from the six-yard box. The Fire also had eight corner kicks, which are often an adventure for the Montreal defence. But centrebacks Matteo Ferrari and Wandrille Lefevre were sharp. Notes: Impact midfielder Calum Mallace served a one-game suspension for going onto the field from the bench during a game last week. . . Montreal is unbeaten (2-0-2) at home against Chicago in three seasons in MLS. . . Midfielder Dilly Duka, acquired July 29 from the Fire, played 90 minutes while Sanna Nyassi, who went to Chicago in the same deal, went on as a sub in the 78th. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
