BOURNEMOUTH, England -- A superb goal by Zlatan Ibrahimovic on his Premier League debut helped Manchester United to a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday in Jose Mourinhos first league game in charge of his new club.Juan Mata opened the scoring five minutes before halftime after a defensive blunder and captain Wayne Rooney headed Uniteds second in the 59th after a wayward shot by Anthony Martial.But if there was an element of good fortune to Uniteds first two goals, there was no doubting the sheer class of its third. Ibrahimovic picked up the ball in midfield and unleashed a low 25-meter (yard) shot past Artur Boruc into the corner of the net.Adam Smith scored Bournemouths consolation goal in the 69th, but Mourinhos side never looked like relinquishing control of the game.We werent at 100 per cent but in the second half it became easier, Ibrahimovic told Sky Sports. It was a good game, a good start and it was important to start with a win.As for his first impression of Premier League football, the Swedish forward added: Its not easy. Everything is new for me. Slowly I get settled in, play my game and make my team win.Having spent nearly $200 million on new players and brought in former Chelsea manager Mourinho to replace Louis van Gaal, United will be expected to challenge for honors this season.Sundays away performance at the Vitality Stadium was certainly an encouraging one for the start of the Mourinho era, particularly after derby rival and title favorite Manchester City scraped a 2-1 win over Sunderland on Saturday.Determined to make a positive start, United applied most of the pressure in a tightly contested first half that saw few chances.It took two Bournemouth defenders to clear the danger from Ibrahimovics aerial challenge for a high ball into the area, while Martial arrowed a shot harmlessly over the top in the early stages.Rooney then tried his luck with a low shot in the 27th minute, but Boruc got down quickly to make the save.Bournemouth had been disciplined at the back and looked set to finish the half on level terms until a costly blunder by Simon Francis handed United the lead.A sloppy backpass to Boruc was pounced on by Mata, who stretched out to toe-poke a shot on target. Boruc managed to block, but the loose ball struck Franciss knee as he ran back to clear and then rebounded into the path of Mata who steered it into an empty net.There was also a touch of luck to Uniteds second goal, as the visitors kept probing Bournemouths defense after the re-start.Antonio Valencia broke down the right side and sent over a cross for Martial, who hopelessly miscued his volley. However, after his downward shot struck the turf, the ball reared up conveniently for Rooney to nod past Boruc from the edge of the six-yard area.By contrast, there was nothing but star quality behind Uniteds third, with 34-year-old Ibrahimovic driving home his shot from distance to maintain a record of scoring on debuts. To its credit, Bournemouth refused to buckle and Smith smacked a shot into the roof of the United net from inside the area in the 69th minute.But there was no way back for the home side, as United made sure of a winning start to the new league season.

While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. .

"It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium.

With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. DURHAM, N.C. -- With three big men out with injuries, top-ranked Duke is leaning on its guards for a little bit of everything.Grayson Allen had 25 points and 10 rebounds, freshman Frank Jackson added 21 points and the Blue Devils beat Grand Canyon 96-61 on Saturday.We have to rebound -- the whole perimeter has to rebound, said Allen, who finished one rebound shy of his career best. We know the big guys that we do have in the game, theyre going to be battling, boxing out the other bigs, so the perimeter, we need to crash in and rebound and clean up all the loose stuff.Amile Jefferson scored 15 points, Luke Kennard finished with 14 and Matt Jones had 11 points for the short-handed Blue Devils (2-0).Once again playing without three injured freshman post players, they kept things largely in their guards hands and shot 53 percent to win their second game in less than 24 hours.I like my team a lot. We just have to keep getting better, and then once all these injuries are taken care of in some time, we can become a different team, coach Mike Krzyzewski said. Right now, we have to be this team and not think about who we could be. Our complete focus has got to be how to win with this team.Now, with those two tuneup games out of the way, the focus squarely falls on one of the marquee matchups of the early season: a date with No. 3 Kansas on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.Shaq Carr had 18 points to lead pesky Grand Canyon (0-1), which gave Duke more of a test than Marist did in a 94-49 rout a night earlier but came up empty in its second opener against a top-ranked team in three years.BIG PICTUREGrand Canyon: The Antelopes -- who lost to No. 1 Kentucky by 40 points in 2014 -- will have to be content with making things tough on Duke for a good chunk of the first half and leading for about 7 1/2 minutes of the first half behind Carr, who repeatedly found his way through the Blue Devils defense and to the rim.I didnt know what to expect, coach Dan Majerle said about a team missing three starters. I was happy with how we started off. ... I thought maybe the firsst 12, 13 minutes, we played pretty good and were going to learn about our team as we go along.dddddddddddduke: The Blue Devils shortened their bench significantly, playing only seven players in the pre-garbage time portion of the game -- and the seventh, freshman Javin DeLaurier, logged only 6 minutes in all. Theyre trying to keep things working without injured freshman big men Harry Giles (knee), Marques Bolden (lower leg) and Jayson Tatum (foot). Krzyzewski says he doesnt anticipate having them against the Jayhawks and we may not have them all week.Whatever amount of time, whatever it is, lets just get well, Krzyzewski added. And while you guys are getting well and supporting the team, lets become a team with these nine guys. We made that a priority this past week. Were trying to figure out the system we need for this group of guys.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Blue Devils trailed for the first time this season but once again showed no reason why they should be ranked any lower than No. 1.THE COLANGELO CONNECTIONBoth coaches have strong ties to Jerry Colangelo. He was the Phoenix Suns owner when they drafted Majerle in 1988 and lured Thunder Dan to the Grand Canyon program in 2013.And with Colangelo as its chairman and Dukes Mike Krzyzewski as the coach, the U.S. national team won the last three Olympic gold medals.STAT WATCHThe Blue Devils were 21 of 31 from the free-throw line while Grand Canyon was 6 of 12. The Antelopes didnt attempt their first foul shot until just 1:44 remained in the first half -- by which point Duke had already attempted 17 and built a 39-28 lead.UP NEXTGrand Canyon: The Antelopes head to Penn State on Nov. 15 for their second game in the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off.Duke: The Blue Devils get their first big test Nov. 15 when they face Kansas in the Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden.---Follow Joedy McCreary at AP college basketball: ' ' '
