From the schoolyard to the AFL field, Mitch Hallahan always knew Gold Coast forward Tom Lynch was going to be something special.The Suns star will play his 100th AFL match against Essendon on Sunday and few have shared the journey to that mark as closely as teammate Hallahan.The pair played junior footy together at Sorrento on Victorias Mornington Peninsula and were also in the same school growing up.Hallahan spent three years at Hawthorn after being drafted in 2010 but was reunited with Lynch at the Suns at the end of 2014.The 23-year-old says its no surprise Lynch has gone on to become one of the elite key forwards in the game.Ive watched him right from when he was six, seven, eight years old, Hallahan told AAP.To see him turn into the player he has, its no surprise. Hes a star of the game.Such a humble man too. He gets everything he deserves right now. Hes playing some super footy.Lynch will hoping to celebrate his milestone with another bag of goals against the bottom-placed Bombers as he tries to keep touch with Coleman Medal leader Josh Kennedy.The West Coast star kicked seven majors last week to move to 67 goals for 2016, six clear of Lynch and Sydneys Lance Franklin.The Suns pushed finals-bound Greater Western Sydney all the way at Metricon Stadium last week, eventually falling by just eight points.Hallahan says while the struggling Bombers look a far weaker prospect on paper, the Suns head to Etihad Stadium wary of their opponent.Weve still got to turn up with that same level of intent and effort, he said.If we dont do that, well get touched up.Essendon have proven they can beat sides and push sides this year, well pay them the respect they deserve.Gold Coast welcome back Adam Saad and Aaron Hall to their lineup along with ruckman Keegan Brooksby.That trio replace Sean Lemmens (omitted) and injured pair Alex Sexton (hamstring) and Tom Nicholls (knee).The Bombers have made four changes from the team which lost by 88-points to Geelong last week.Mathew Stokes, Jake Long, Orazio Fantasia, Jonathan Simpkin all come in for injured trio Courtenay Dempsey (hamstring), Brendon Goddard (groin) and Aaron Francis (calf) while Darcy Parish has been rested.

BOULDER, Colo. -- Colorado coach Tad Boyle made an innocent comment after a sluggish performance at the start the season: Play like that again and Xavier would beat the Buffaloes by 20.His players received the message. They made sure it didnt go down like that.Derrick White scored 23 points and had a crucial block with 13 seconds remaining to help Colorado hold off No. 13 Xavier 68-66 on Wednesday night.Its not like I said they were going to, I said they could, Boyle said when reminded of his comment. If were not ready to play, this team will come in and take your heart.I have a lot of respect for Xavier. Thats why this is a big win for our program, for our league. We talked a lot in film sessions, in practice, in meetings about players having to make plays.White certainly did that. This was just the sort of game Boyle envisioned when White transferred in from Colorado-Colorado Springs (he sat out last season). He made big jumper after big jumper down the stretch and had the key block.Thats the Derrick White Ive been talking about, our fans have been expecting to see, Boyle said. You can have all the plays in the world, all the defensive concepts in the world, but if you dont have the players who can make plays down the stretch, youre not going to win games like this.Xavier Johnson added for 18 points for the Buffaloes (7-2), who posted consecutive wins over ranked teams for the first time since 2013. They knocked off a ranked Texas team at the Legends Classic in New York last month.Colorado was 1-5 against ranked teams last season.Trevon Bluiett scored a career-high 27 points for Xavier (7-2), which has lost two straight.Were not going to pack our tent and quit playing, but weve gotten a reality check the last couple of times, Xavier coach Chris Mack said. Were willing to go on the road and play in games like this. You get penalized too, so our team has got to grow up from these types of experieences because theyre not fun.ddddddddddddpurred on by the shooting of White and Johnson, the Buffaloes went on a 15-0 run midway through the second half. They kept Xavier scoreless for more than 6 minutes during the pivotal stretch.It was a frenzied ending, though, with Xavier getting several good looks. White swatted one of those away -- his only block of the game.It was all about stops, White said. Thats the most important part.BIG PICTUREXavier: The Musketeers had a nine-point lead early in the second half, but struggled from the field. They shot 37.7 percent for the game. ...
