s put together over an 8-minute stretch of the second half.I thought Iowa State was very sharp. If you look at th Antworten

BEREA, Ohio -- When Josh McCown was asked by Browns wide receivers Terrelle Pryor and Josh Gordon -- players who are much younger than him -- to join them and watch Monday Night Football, Clevelands quarterback didnt pass up the chance.When the invite is there, I will go hang, McCown said.The curious trio of teammates will be huddling again Sunday.McCown, who stayed steady this summer as trade speculation swirled, will replace an injured Robert Griffin III and start Sundays home opener against Baltimore. Griffin broke a bone in his left shoulder last week in Philadelphia and will miss at least eight games.So the Browns (0-1) will turn their offense back over to the capable McCown, whose future in Cleveland seemed tenuous for several months. However, despite fielding several offers for the 37-year-old, the Browns chose to hang on to McCown, a decision that looks shrewder after Griffin went down.Josh is a pros pro, said Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas. You dont survive 15 years in the NFL without knowing how to take care of your business, even in the face of adversity.McCown is relishing another chance, knowing better than anyone he doesnt have many left. His first season with Cleveland was sabotaged by injury, and time is running out on a career that began in 2002 -- when many of his current teammates were still in grade school.For my age, these opportunities, I dont take them lightly, he said. The opportunity to get out there, certainly when that is taken away, it eats at you. Throughout the offseason, it is always in the back of your mind, and the next opportunity you have to make the most of it because you do not know. That is my plan this time around.McCown experienced extreme highs and lows last season against the Ravens (1-0). He passed for a team-record 457 yards and led the Browns to one of their three wins, a 33-30 overtime thriller at Baltimore on Oct. 11. When the teams met again six weeks later, McCown broke his collarbone and missed the final five games.When Cleveland signed RG3 as a free agent in March and then selected rookie Cody Kessler in the third round of Aprils draft, it appeared McCowns days with the Browns were numbered. He blocked out the trade rumors and did what he has always done: whatever the team needed.Even before he was beaten out by Griffin for the Browns starting job in training camp, McCown selflessly stepped aside and offered his snaps so RG3 could have more time with the starters.Its that selflessness that has endeared him to teammates past and present. And its why the Browns, who have 17 rookies on their roster, are grateful to have him to teach their young players, to lead them, and, to hopefully win with them.Im full speed ahead with Josh, coach Hue Jackson said. I think he will go out and play extremely well, and help lead our offense and get us to playing football the way we need to play, and give us an opportunity. We expect him to do that. That is why we kept him here.For all the positive testimonials about McCowns character, theres no escaping that hes just 2-17 in his last two seasons as a starter for Tampa Bay and Cleveland. Although he was on the way to his best statistical season in 2015, McCown was 1-7 for the Browns.Pryor, the QB-turned-wide receiver who spent part of the offseason working out with McCown, said focusing on McCowns record is unfair. Theres more than meets the eye.Last year, he lit a lot of teams up, Pryor said. The guy knows how to play. What we love about Josh is that hes the ultimate competitor. You can see it in his eyes and the way he talks in the huddle.McCown was with Pryor and Gordon, who is serving another four-game drug suspension, when Browns owner Jimmy Haslam called to discuss Griffins injury and offer him support.Which made me feel good for a lot of different reasons, Haslam said. Josh McCown is as good a person as Ive ever met anywhere. Hes just incredible.McCown never thought twice about whether his being with much younger teammates appeared odd.It is good to be around those guys, he said. It keeps me young. Ive been the `old guy for the past five years.Game notes Jackson said he doesnt have a problem with his players celebrating following a big play, as long as they keep it within reason. I want our guys to have a little swagger to them, he said. If that is what makes us play good, more power to them. As long as the dances dont turn into something Ive never seen before, we will be OK.---AP NFL website: and George Springer Jersey . Shot outdoors against the stunning backdrop of Banff, Alta., the networks 30-minute original production airs tonight at 8pm et/5pm pt on TSN2. The four All-Star teams will play for $100,000 in prize money during TSNs annual skins game, airing live this weekend on TSN from The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre. Jake Marisnick Jersey . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. Jose Cruz Jr. Astros Jersey . Halifax beat the Saint John Sea Dogs 7-5 on the strength of two goals apiece from Nikolaj Ehlers, Matt Murphy and Brent Andrews. Jonathan Drouin also scored and had three assists while Zachary Fucale made 17 saves for the Mooseheads (16-8-0), who led 6-1 after two periods. Craig Biggio Jersey . -- There were a lot of firsts for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Deonte Burton launched soft, feathery jumpers from the perimeter and was just as effective muscling his way to the basket when he found that more to his and No. 21 Iowa States advantage.The Cyclones burly 6-foot-5 forward is tough to defend wherever he is on the court. Just ask the Miami Hurricanes.We dont have anybody as big and strong as he is. Hes 250. Most of our guys are like 200, 220, Miami coach Jim Larranaga said after Burton scored 21 points and Iowa State used a 17-2 second-half run to pull away to a 73-56 victory in the AdvoCare Invitational at Disney World on Friday.Burton, the 2016 Big 12 newcomer of the year, made eight of 16, including both of his 3-pointers, to bounce back from what he felt was a subpar performance in the Cyclones tournament-opening victory over Indiana State. He also finished with a team-leading seven rebounds.I had a good game because of my teammates. Yesterday I didnt play too well, but they stuck by me, Burton said. They told me I would do better. They instilled belief in me, and it showed.Iowa State (5-0) advanced to Sundays championship game, also playing much better than Thursday , when the Cyclones shot 34.2 percent against Indiana State -- their lowest field-goal percentage in a win since 2007.Matt Thomas had 12 points and Nazareth Mitrou-Long added 10 for the Cyclones.Im really proud of our guys, the resiliency and leadership, the character of our seniors, Iowa State coach Steve Prohm said. (Thursday) was a tough game. I read a lot, you hear what everybody says. I like when people doubt us. Its good. It keeps you more focused. It keeps you humble. But the thing that I was most proud of was the thing people question about us, our toughness and our defense. I think that won the game for us today.Darrell Bowie hit an awkward layup as he tumbled to the floor and also hit a short jumper during a 17-2 run the Cyclones put together over an 8-minute stretch of the second half.I thought Iowa State was very sharp. If you look at their stats from (Thursday), they didnt make a free tthrow.dddddddddddd Today, they didnt miss, so every day is a little different, Larranaga said. Today, we just couldnt make a shot. Some of it had to do with their defense, but we were uncharacteristically in a hurry. We had 19 turnovers. We dont normally do that, and a lot of the turnovers were unforced.JaQuan Newton led Miami with 21 points. Backcourt mate Davon Reed added 13 for the Hurricanes, who shot 36 percent from the field, including going just 2 of 16 on 3-point attempts.Burton hit a jumper, Donovan Jackson buried a 3-pointer and Monte Morris hit two free throws to finish the surge that broke the game open. Morris finished with six points -- well below his team-leading average of 19 for Iowa State -- but it didnt matter.The Cyclones built a 35-29 lead without getting any points out of their star, who finished 2 for 8 from the field.BIG PICTURECoaches use early season tournaments to prepare for conference play. Iowa State passed its first real test of the season, beating a team on the verge of cracking the Top 25 after shooting poorly in Thursdays opening round victory over Indiana State. Despite the loss, Miami figures to benefit from having faced Stanford and Iowa State before heading home for the ACC/Big Ten ChallengeHOLIDAY WINNINGSIowa State is 8-1 in holiday tournaments over the past four seasons. The Cyclones won the Emerald Coast Classic last season, finished second in the 2014 CBE Hall of Fame Classic and first in the 2013 Diamond Head Classic.POLL IMPLICATIONSIowa State would bolster an argument for a higher ranking by winning Sundays final. Miami beat Stanford in the opening round but likely wont move into the Top 25, regardless of what it does in the third-place game.UP NEXTIowa State faces another tough challenge against No. 11 Gonzaga for the championship.Miami plays the loser Florida for third place.---More AP college basketball: and ' ' '
