MAUI, Hawaii -- Oregon and Georgetown keep facing off in far-away places. Cheap Yankees Jerseys China .The fourth-ranked Ducks will meet the Hoyas in the first round of the Maui Invitational on Monday. Three years ago, Oregon opened the season with an 82-75 win over Georgetown in South Korea.We were able to play Georgetown three years ago and we had a tough game with them, Ducks coach Dana Altman said. We know they are an awfully good team with a lot of players coming back and we have a good core group coming back.Oregon is one of three ranked teams in the field along with No. 5 North Carolina and No. 9 Wisconsin. The Ducks and Badgers would face off in the semifinals if both advance out of the first round while the Tar Heels could await Oregon or Wisconsin in the title game.You look at the field and the exciting thing about it is a lot of teams have a lot of experience, Altman said. There are good programs and good coaches. North Carolina is coming off being in the national championship and Wisconsin was in the Sweet 16 and we had a nice year. It should be a competitive field.Oregon has its highest ranking in school history after reaching the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament last season, but the Ducks will likely fall when the new polls come out Monday following a 66-49 loss at Baylor on Tuesday.Sometimes it is harder to maintain a certain level of success than achieve it, so we definitely have some obstacles to overcome to get guys in the right frame of mind to compete, Altman said. This tournament will do that because game in and game out there will be great competition.The Ducks hope to have all-conference junior forward Dillon Brooks back to face the Hoyas after he missed the first three games of the season following foot surgery. The 6-foot-7 Brooks, who averaged 16.7 points and 5.4 rebounds last year, has been going through workouts with the team and could be medically cleared in time for the trip to Maui.Hes a big part of our team, but who knows when hes going to be back, Altman said. I dont. The doctors havent told me. I know hes anxious to get back but until they release him we have to play without him.It is unlikely Brooks will start when he first returns because he will be on a limited schedule.We will play him on the exact schedule the doctor gives us, Altman said. We are not going to be conservative or push the envelope, we will do exactly what the doctors say.Oregon opened the season with a 91-77 win over Army before losing at Baylor. The Ducks bounced back with a 76-54 win over Valparaiso on Thursday.With Brooks on the bench, center Chris Boucher leads Oregon in scoring at 17 points per game, followed by guard Tyler Dorsey at 12.7. Junior forward Jordan Bell is averaging 12.3 points and a team-high 8.7 rebounds.Georgetown is 1-2 after back-to-back losses against Maryland and Arkansas State. Guards L.J. Peak and Rodney Pryor each lead the team with 17.7 points per game while center Jessie Govan is averaging 14.3. Wholesale Yankees Jerseys . Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. Cheap Yankees Jerseys . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. http://www.cheapyankeesjerseys.com/ .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. Theres no exact science to turning pro within skateboarding. Its not as easy as getting drafted to a pro team straight out of college. Quite the contrary, its a nebulous process that varies from skate brand to brand.Ryan Clements, founder of The Boardr and The Boardr Am series, knows a thing or two about the process. Yes, its a ton of hard work and commitment, but it also includes skating contests and getting noticed.Contest series like The Boardr Am actually help build value for younger skaters to ultimately go pro, says Clements.A founder of The Boardr alongside Rob Meronek, Clements started skateboarding in 1985 and eventually moved into a general manager position at the Skatepark of Tampa, longtime home of the Tampa Am and Tampa Pro series. Eventually, Clements expanded into athlete management and founded Excel Management before heading out on his own with Meronek to found The Boardr, which began their amateur series at the start of 2015.Along the way, Clements and The Boardr met a young teenager from Jacksonville, Florida named Paul Hart that was skating amateur contests and getting noticed. Not long after, Hart started receiving free decks from a French-based brand known as Cliché. After getting hooked up by the brand, he was asked to go on a team tour, but declined because of school, eventually deciding to drop out of high school and move to Anaheim, California. He was 17.And even at a young age, he knew what he needed to do for his skating to progress from amateur to pro. Cheap New York Yankees Jerseys. I respect the process, Hart told skate podcast The Nine Club last month. I was just some Floridian d**k dog, and I needed to keep doing what I was doing. Ive just gotta be myself and let it happen.Hart appeared in Cliché videos, went on trips, and remained easy to work with while progressing his skating. He skated The Boardr Am L.A. stop in 2015.Eventually, Hart was added to the amateur team in 2015, and not long after, Cliché asked him to start filming a new video part, a part that would eventually become his In Hart We Trust pro part for Thrasher Magazine. They just told me to start filming. About half a year went by and they told me that they want to turn me pro and that became my pro part, says Hart.The event was well timed. Alongside his new video release, Cliché debuted his pro board at a pro party for Hart, with interviews from Thrasher and The Nine Club not far behind. A signature pro wheel from Bones followed a week later, and last week, Hart headed out to China with the FP Insoles crew to film.Im just stoked to be in this vibe skating, says Hart. Im just blessed to be in this position.And yeah, maybe legit am contests helped Paul turn pro just a little bit, adds Clements.The Best of The Boardr Am 2016 premieres on Mon., Oct. 10 on XGames.com.

BALTIMORE -- The vast change in the Baltimore Orioles over the past couple of years can be measured by their success against the Boston Red Sox, even when their AL East rivals send Jon Lester to the mound. Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 23rd home run, Nick Markakis had four hits and scored three runs, and Baltimore beat Lester and the Red Sox 6-3 Sunday. Manny Machado extended his hitting streak to a career-high 14 games and drove in a run for the Orioles, who took three of four from first-place Boston to move within 1 1/2 games of the division lead. Baltimore has won six straight series over the Red Sox, dating to last year. Before going 13-5 against Boston in 2012, the Orioles hadnt taken a season series from the Red Sox since 2004. The metamorphosis is even more apparent when gauging their performance against Lester. Prior to last September, when the Orioles charged into the playoffs for the first time since 1997, Baltimore was 0-14 against the Boston right-hander. They beat him on Sept. 21, and Sunday they tagged him for five runs in five innings. "Obviously we have a different group here," said Davis, who was 0 for 14 lifetime against Lester before ripping a 3-1 pitch in the third inning for a two-run homer that put Baltimore up 3-0. After striking out in the first inning, Davis took action. "Went in there and looked at some video just to get an idea of what hed been doing to me in the past," he said. "I know I hadnt had a lot of success. If you give him both sides of the plate and try to hit all those pitches you make it tough on yourself. I was able to get ahead of him and get a good pitch to drive." It was his 100th career homer and seventh in the last 10 games against Boston. Davis also doubled in a run in the fifth against Lester, sending the Orioles on their way to their 14th win in 19 games against the Red Sox, including five of seven this season. "They dont beat themselves," Boston manager John Farrell said. "Typically they throw strikes, theyre not going to issue many walks. They play very sound defence and they have the ability to score a couple of runs on the swing of a bat." Will Middlebrooks hit a three-run homer for the Red Sox and Jose Iglesias stretched his hitting streak to 17 games with an eighth-inning single. Baaltimore starter Miguel Gonzalez (5-2) took a two-hitter and a 5-0 lead into the seventh. Adidas Mike Gartner Jersey. He ended up allowing three runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings to improve to 3-0 lifetime against Boston. "It was fun to watch our hitters hit, especially against Lester," Gonzalez said. "Hes been doing a great job this year and always pitched well against us." Jim Johnson worked the ninth for his AL-leading 25th save and second in the series. Lester (6-4) fell to 14-2 lifetime against the Orioles, 7-1 at Camden Yards. The right-hander struck out eight but yielded nine hits. "Theyve always been able to swing the bats, theres no question as far as coming in here and pitching against that lineup," Lester said. "Theyve always been a good offensive team." Not this good. The Orioles outscored Boston 17-12 in the series and had 14 hits, seven for extra bases, in the finale. Baltimore took control with a three-run third. After Adam Jones doubled in a run, Davis hit a drive far over the right-field wall. In the fifth, Markakis doubled and scored on a single by Machado before Davis hit a two-out RBI double for a 5-0 lead. Middlebrooks made it interesting with his ninth home run, closing the gap to 5-3 in the seventh. In the bottom half, however, Markakis doubled and scored on a single by J.J. Hardy. NOTES: Bostons Mike Carp left in the seventh inning with tightness in his right hamstring. ... A crowd of 41,311 pushed the Orioles over the 1 million mark after 35 home dates. ... Machado hit his major league-leading 32nd double, his fifth in five games. ... Actor Richard Gere threw out the ceremonial first pitch. He was wearing an Orioles jersey with the word "DAD" on the back. ... Red Sox RHP Pedro Beato pitched the sixth after being recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket earlier in the day. ... Farrell says RHP Clay Buchholz (neck) could go on the DL if he cant throw his bullpen session on Tuesday. Buchholz (9-0, 1.71 ERA) hasnt pitched since June 8. Alfredo Aceves will be recalled from Pawtucket to start in Tuesdays doubleheader against Tampa Bay. ... Jake Arreita will start Monday in Detroit for ailing Jason Hammel, who hopes to pitch Tuesday. ... Lester has yielded six homers in his last three starts after giving up five in his first 12 starts.

Middlebrooks made it interesting with his ninth home run, closing the gap to 5-3 in the seventh. In the bottom half, however, Markakis doubled and scored on a single by J.J. Hardy. NOTES: Bostons Mike Carp left in the seventh inning with tightness in his right hamstring. ... A crowd of 41,311 pushed the Orioles over the 1 million mark after 35 home dates. ... Machado hit his major league-leading 32nd double, his fifth in five games. ... Actor Richard Gere threw out the ceremonial first pitch. He was wearing an Orioles jersey with the word "DAD" on the back. ... Red Sox RHP Pedro Beato pitched the sixth after being recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket earlier in the day. ... Farrell says RHP Clay Buchholz (neck) could go on the DL if he cant throw his bullpen session on Tuesday. Buchholz (9-0, 1.71 ERA) hasnt pitched since June 8. Alfredo Aceves will be recalled from Pawtucket to start in Tuesdays doubleheader against Tampa Bay. ... Jake Arreita will start Monday in Detroit for ailing Jason Hammel, who hopes to pitch Tuesday. ... Lester has yielded six homers in his last three starts after giving up five in his first 12 starts.

Stuart Barnes reviews Englands performance against South Africa, assesses their chances against Fiji and gives his opinions on Wales squad in this weeks talking points. Brent Burns World Cup Jersey . 1. Another Saturday, another win for England as Eddie Jones made it 10 out of 10 since taking charge. From day one he has cracked the whip and demanded more than any of these players have ever given. The result is a team mentally tougher than the one that was so similar in terms of personnel to this current one. The boundaries between success and failure are as much in the strength of the mind as the body. Highlights of Englands opening Autumn International against South Africa at Twickenham. The Jones regime has a perfect strike rate but has yet to deliver a performance that would be described as memorable. For example, Jones England has never been near in terms of quality to what we saw from Joe Schmidts Ireland against New Zealand in Chicago. At some stage England will have to find a level of performance beyond what we have so far seen. But Jones is in no great hurry. His team are fit, determined, confident and dont have to face New Zealand until 2018. That is the game Jones will have inked into his planner. To be world champions, you have to be good enough to know you can beat the All Blacks. Ben Youngs rips through the South African defence on Saturday All he gave his team was a pass mark for ending the run of a decade and 12 games without victory against the Springboks but Englands discipline was sloppy and South Africa are currently at their least formidable. To see them pick a pine forest of lineout forwards and watch them fail to even compete in the air against England was to scratch your head and wonder.On the plus side was a magnificent performance from Joe Launchbury, a eye catching 70 minutes from Ben Youngs and an absolute gem of a first phase try....give them a pass. Joe Launchbury competes with Eben Etzebeth in the lineout 2. A pass mark should be enough to see them to Eddies 11th straight win against Fiji this Saturday. The Pacific Island teams are so nomadic in terms of their players global travelling that it takes time to bring a team together.In the World Cup, Fiji produced a brave performance against Wales and a more than half decent one against England at Twickenham. Australia drove them around the fringes and demolished them in the tight in their pool game in Cardiff. I wonder if England will start with the ambition witnessed for the Jonny May try or if they might attempt to pummel the Fijian forwards in the tight. It is not going to be a question of whether they will win but how.The make up of the team will also be interesting. Jones is not one of giving away caps but he wants to get as much depth as possible in his squad. It could be an exciting day for a few fringe players. Billy Vunipola has praised his England teammates for their performance against South Africa on Saturday 3. Irelands fringe players did their job against Canada, scoring in excess of 50 points to keep morale high ahead of what is arguably the game of 2016. Highlights of Irelands opening Autumn International against Canada from Dublin. Schmidt has said he is wary of New Zealand revenge. A good Kiwi, he knows how much those rare defeats hurt an All Black. Schmidt is smart and will know that Steve Hansen and his management will not allow themselves to be outsmarted as they were in Illinois.The same from Ireland will not suffice because New Zealand will have shrugged off what looked like a hint of complacency and changed the game. Ireland prepared for months to win in America, Schmidt has only a fortnight to mastermind what would be an even greater victory.4. Congratulations to Beauden Barrett for being named World Player of the Year. Beauden Barrett spills a high ball in the game against Ireland How ironic that the award came in the wake of a quite naive performance against Ireland. He was an easy target for Ireland to read, playing harder and flatter without it ever dawning on him that Ireland were not for cracking. A few chips to turn them would have made Irelands defence think, instead it just dominated. Still, we all have our bad days.It has crossed my mind that New Zealand could even start Aaron Cruden at fly-half in Dublin... but what a season Barrett has produced, a fly-half who has ripped the rule book up when it comes to Test match selection.He has made and scored so many tries that the kicker isnt the first name on the New Zealand team sheet. He has been the most positive player to have emerged on the world scene in years.5. Positive is not a word that springs readily to mind when considering the Springboks.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Katie Ledecky even upstaged Michael Phelps at the Olympics on Friday. Cheap Lakers Jerseys .Ledecky set a world record by winning the womens 800-meter freestyle by an astounding 11.38 seconds. Shes only the second woman to sweep the three longest freestyle races at the Olympics and the first one to do it since the 1968 Mexico City Games.After winning four gold medals at the Rio de Janeiro Games and looking unbeatable, Phelps finally ran out of steam in what was the final individual race of his career -- unless he decides to come out of retirement again.The frenetic finishes in the swimming pool capped a day that included a big escape by the U.S. mens basketball team and a stunning loss by the womens soccer squad.Phelps was seeking his 23rd Olympic gold medal and his fourth straight in the 100-meter butterfly, but he was denied by Singapores Joseph Schooling, who got off to a blistering start and built a lead that even Phelps couldnt overcome.With Anthony Ervin winning the mens 50 freestyle and Maya DiRado taking gold in the womens 200 backstroke, the Americans would have had a clean sweep were it not for the silver by Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in history.Ledecky finished well before Jazz Carlin of Britain touched the wall for silver. She joined Debbie Meyer as the only women to sweep the 200, 400 and 800 freestyle races at the same Olympics.The United States womens soccer team was eliminated by Sweden in the quarterfinals, a startling loss for the four-time Olympic champions that left Hope Solo without a shot at gold but with plenty of bitterness.The U.S. goalkeeper criticized the Swedes for the way they played in beating the Americans 4-3 in a penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw -- a result that means the worlds top-ranked team will miss out on an Olympic gold-medal match in womens soccer for the first time.Solo was angered by Swedens defensive style and branded the team a bunch of cowards.The best team did not win today, she said. I strongly and firmly believe that.Said Sweden coach Pia Sundhage, who once coached Solo when she was in charge of the U.S. national team: Its OK to be a coward if you win.Carmelo Anthony, Kyrie Irving & Co. survived their second straight strong challenge at the Rio Games, fending off Serbia 94-91 when Bogdan Bogdanovic missed a 3-pointer from the left wing with 2 seconds left that would have tied it.Kevin Durant grabbed the rebound to keep the Americans unbeaten 48 hours after they barely escaped against Australia.On a day that began with another round of rain, South Americas first Olympics lingered under clouds of grief, doping and disrespect.-Brazils government declared a day of official mourning for a Rio Olympics police officer who died after being shot in the head making a wrong turn into one of the citys slums.-A Chinese swimmer, Polish weightlifter and Bulgarian steeplechaser have been sanctioned for doping offenses , which are being handled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport for the first time.-And in a serious breach of judo etiquette with political overtones, an Egyptian judoka refused to shake the hand of his Israeli opponent after his loss.Other highlights from Day 7:CLOSE CALLS : Rafael Nadal, the singles champion at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and Spain teammate Marc Lopez won the mens doubles title. Nadal also reached the semifinals in his bid for a second Olympic singles gold, overcoming his Brazilian opponent and a raucous flag-waving home crowd.BRONZE BOXER : Nico Hernandezs chance for a gold medal ended Friday when he lost to Uzbekistans Hasanboy Dusmatov. With a gnarly gash over his left eye, Hernandez had blurred vision and needed stitches. His consolation: his bronze medal in the light flyweight division ends a medal drought for the American boxers that stretched to 2008.PUIGS PUSH : Tennis player Monica Puig is one victory from Puerto Ricos first gold medal in Olympic history. Puig continued her surprising run by reaching the womens singles final, eliminating two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic 6-4, 1-6, 6-3. Puig is ranked 34th and unseeded but is assured of no worse than a silver medal.AUTO ACCIDENT : A German Olympic canoe coach is fighting for his life after a car accident left him with serious head injuries. Stefan Henze, a canoe slalom silver medalist at the 2004 Games, underwent emergency surgery in a Rio de Janeiro hospital. He and a team official were heading to the athletes village when their taxi was in a wreck.THE SWAMP : In another embarrassment for the Maria Lenk Aquatics Center, a planned practice session had to be called off to give officials more time to clean the green-tinged water -- a four-days-and-counting scenario that prompted American diver Abby Johnson to dub it the Swamp.---AP Summer Games website: http://summergames.ap.org---Follow AP Sports Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Cheap Lakers Jerseys China . LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. Cheap Swingman Lakers Jerseys . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. http://www.cheaplakersjerseys.com/ . 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. As the game evolves at warp speed, as cricketers bodies become less attainable and skills become ever more honed, it can be comforting for fans when the unremarkable bears fruit.In New Zealands attack were Tim Southee and Trent Boult: the big-swinging thoroughbreds. They had Neil Wagner: the grim, tenacious, hatchet man. Yet on Friday, it was a seamer who barely breached 128kph that brought the worlds no. 2 side to its knees. It was uninspiring line-and-length diligence that found success on a pitch prepared for better-equipped quicks.In he came, a modest hero in Colin de Grandhomme, operating off a mid-sized run-up - shorter than a spearheads, longer than an Australia innings - all athletic competence, with perfectly-adequate rhythm in his strides, sufficient hip drive when he got to the crease, and satisfactory wrist position when the ball came to be released.Some fast bowling invites comparisons to bolts of lightning and hellfire; much mythologised are quicks who scratch at the ground like stallions about to charge, whose nostrils pour with steam as they advance, who raise the smell of sulphur from the surface when a bouncer has been bowled.For much of Friday, de Grandhomme was more a strongly-worded letter than the booming sound of thunder, and yet, none of his more illustrious teammates could rattle Pakistan like he did. He bowled dot balls to Babar Azam until he drew a poor shot twice - the first to gully was dropped, the second to the slips was fatal. He had the great Younis Khan out for 2; Younis feet stapled to the crease in a complete reversal of his batting through much of the England tour, as he reached unavailingly for a cover drive.By the end of the innings, de Grandhomme had ripped out the top order and set the tail on the run with his middle-of-the-road, wobbly medium. His 6 for 41 were the best-ever figures for a New Zealand debutant, breaking a record that stood for 65 years.The most impressive wicket among those was that of Azhar Ali, when de Grandhomme weaselled a ball between bat and pad to set off stump on a jaunt, and Pakistan into decline. But although he said he had been quite excited at the sight of the uprooted wicket, raising a single fist into the air in celebration, there still was something innocuous about de Grandhomme, even in his most animated moment. For a Tim Southee or a Wahab Riaz, that celebrration would have seemed like the power-pose of a triumphant warrior. Cheap Lakers Jerseys Authentic. . De Grandhomme brought to mind a middle-aged protestor walking down the main street, complaining about the rising price of milk.De Grandhomme was hitting the right areas, Azhar said after play. Theres enough there in the pitch, a lot of grass on it, and there was a lot of moisture as well. The lengths and lines were really good. If you hit in that area, youre going to get a good result. On that kind of pitch you know that even a bowler whos not as fast can get a lot out of it. He has more control obviously. If you have less pace you have more swing and more control as well. As the wickets began to stack up through the day, de Grandhommes moustache drew comparisons in the media with those of yesteryears great quicks - Dennis Lillee, Richard Hadlee, Kapil Dev. But those were moustaches with personality and verve. Lillee, for example, had a malice to his handlebars; Hadlee, a touch of deviousness in his wispy tips. Kapils was upstanding and robust, giving off the impression that it would only be too happy to help an old woman cross a Chandigarh intersection. De Grandhommes, comparatively, is characterless; its as if his short-back-and-sides haircut has been perfectly replicated on his upper lip, the whole thing finished in a matte, standard-issue brown.And while he produced a performance that evoked New Zealands proud military-medium tradition, Pakistan produced a vintage batting collapse of their own, replete with Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis having to come together on the first morning with were-getting-too-old-for-this-sh** looks on their faces. Misbah would grow increasingly frustrated through the innings, as team-mates deserted him.They are so far back in the game now, they must summon more Pakistan stereotypes to pose a threat in the match. The attack must make a charge to spark a New Zealand collapse; the batsmen will likely have to overturn a first-innings deficit.On day two they were undone by a bowler who no one suspected much of, but who did just enough. For Pakistan it was a reminder their quest to regain the top ranking would be a difficult one; for the rest of us, that heroes can emerge from the unlikeliest places.

LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. Cheap Swingman Lakers Jerseys . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. http://www.cheaplakersjerseys.com/ . 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. As the game evolves at warp speed, as cricketers bodies become less attainable and skills become ever more honed, it can be comforting for fans when the unremarkable bears fruit.In New Zealands attack were Tim Southee and Trent Boult: the big-swinging thoroughbreds. They had Neil Wagner: the grim, tenacious, hatchet man. Yet on Friday, it was a seamer who barely breached 128kph that brought the worlds no. 2 side to its knees. It was uninspiring line-and-length diligence that found success on a pitch prepared for better-equipped quicks.In he came, a modest hero in Colin de Grandhomme, operating off a mid-sized run-up - shorter than a spearheads, longer than an Australia innings - all athletic competence, with perfectly-adequate rhythm in his strides, sufficient hip drive when he got to the crease, and satisfactory wrist position when the ball came to be released.Some fast bowling invites comparisons to bolts of lightning and hellfire; much mythologised are quicks who scratch at the ground like stallions about to charge, whose nostrils pour with steam as they advance, who raise the smell of sulphur from the surface when a bouncer has been bowled.For much of Friday, de Grandhomme was more a strongly-worded letter than the booming sound of thunder, and yet, none of his more illustrious teammates could rattle Pakistan like he did. He bowled dot balls to Babar Azam until he drew a poor shot twice - the first to gully was dropped, the second to the slips was fatal. He had the great Younis Khan out for 2; Younis feet stapled to the crease in a complete reversal of his batting through much of the England tour, as he reached unavailingly for a cover drive.By the end of the innings, de Grandhomme had ripped out the top order and set the tail on the run with his middle-of-the-road, wobbly medium. His 6 for 41 were the best-ever figures for a New Zealand debutant, breaking a record that stood for 65 years.The most impressive wicket among those was that of Azhar Ali, when de Grandhomme weaselled a ball between bat and pad to set off stump on a jaunt, and Pakistan into decline. But although he said he had been quite excited at the sight of the uprooted wicket, raising a single fist into the air in celebration, there still was something innocuous about de Grandhomme, even in his most animated moment. For a Tim Southee or a Wahab Riaz, that celebrration would have seemed like the power-pose of a triumphant warrior. Cheap Lakers Jerseys Authentic. . De Grandhomme brought to mind a middle-aged protestor walking down the main street, complaining about the rising price of milk.De Grandhomme was hitting the right areas, Azhar said after play. Theres enough there in the pitch, a lot of grass on it, and there was a lot of moisture as well. The lengths and lines were really good. If you hit in that area, youre going to get a good result. On that kind of pitch you know that even a bowler whos not as fast can get a lot out of it. He has more control obviously. If you have less pace you have more swing and more control as well. As the wickets began to stack up through the day, de Grandhommes moustache drew comparisons in the media with those of yesteryears great quicks - Dennis Lillee, Richard Hadlee, Kapil Dev. But those were moustaches with personality and verve. Lillee, for example, had a malice to his handlebars; Hadlee, a touch of deviousness in his wispy tips. Kapils was upstanding and robust, giving off the impression that it would only be too happy to help an old woman cross a Chandigarh intersection. De Grandhommes, comparatively, is characterless; its as if his short-back-and-sides haircut has been perfectly replicated on his upper lip, the whole thing finished in a matte, standard-issue brown.And while he produced a performance that evoked New Zealands proud military-medium tradition, Pakistan produced a vintage batting collapse of their own, replete with Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis having to come together on the first morning with were-getting-too-old-for-this-sh** looks on their faces. Misbah would grow increasingly frustrated through the innings, as team-mates deserted him.They are so far back in the game now, they must summon more Pakistan stereotypes to pose a threat in the match. The attack must make a charge to spark a New Zealand collapse; the batsmen will likely have to overturn a first-innings deficit.On day two they were undone by a bowler who no one suspected much of, but who did just enough. For Pakistan it was a reminder their quest to regain the top ranking would be a difficult one; for the rest of us, that heroes can emerge from the unlikeliest places.

LSU also had 28 free-throw opportunities and converted 20 of the shots, while UNC was 5-of-8 from the charity stripe.I will say that every player on our team brought positive energy today, said head coach Nikki Fargas. Today was our best defensive effort in the sense of our team guarding their play-action. (Stephanie) Watts is an unbelievable player. She really was a hard guard for us, but collectively as a group, we were able to shut down the other players. Offensively, our ability to have an inside-outside attack is always going to be key for us. I like the fact that it started on the defensive end in forcing those turnovers and allowing us to get our transition game going.LSU and UNC traded buckets to open the game before LSU jumped out to a 12-2 lead and went into the second quarter with a 20-8 advantage. The pace of the game slowed considerably in the second period as UNC chipped away at LSUs lead, closing the gap to seven points, 24-17, with just over three minutes remaining by rolling off a 9-4 run.

She hit four of UNCs six treys in the game.
