over Hamilton, who had an engine failure while leading last weekends Malaysian Grand Prix but is chasing a hat trick of victorie Antworten

FORT WORTH, Texas -- JD Miller got the message from new coach Jamie Dixon coming off TCUs first loss under its new boss.Miller scored 12 points with a more aggressive approach that sparked a huge advantage on free throws, freshman point guard Jaylen Fisher led five players in double figures with 13 and the Horned Frogs beat Wofford 72-63 on Saturday, bouncing back from a loss to crosstown rival SMU.I missed a couple of shots early in the game at SMU, Miller said of the 74-59 loss in Dallas earlier in the week. I thought this game I should just attack the basket. Thats all I was thinking.Kenrich Williams had his fourth double-double of the season with 11 points and 13 rebounds for the Horned Frogs (9-1) in the first meeting between the schools. Dixon, a former TCU player, improved to 3-0 against the Terriers after beating them twice in 13 years at Pittsburgh.Fletcher Magee scored 18 points for Wofford (3-7), a four-time qualifier for the NCAA Tournament since 2010 but winless in seven tries against Division I teams this season. Ryan Sawvell had 12 points and 13 rebounds.TCU, which had a 30-12 deficit on free throws in the loss to the Mustangs, had 20 free throws to none for the Terriers in the first half. The Horned Frogs finished with a season-high 41 to eight for Wofford but shot just 59 percent from the line to help Wofford stay close.It was the difference, Dixon said. We got beat at the line the other night and we beat them at the line. But youve got to shoot a higher percentage. Its almost a turnover when you go 24 for 41.Brandon Parrish had two 3-pointers for all six of his points, the first giving the Horned Frogs their first double-digit lead midway through the second half and the other ending an 8-0 run that got the Terriers within three points in the final two minutes.Williams scored seven of his points from the line, and Fisher offset a 3-of-10 shooting game by making five of six free throws. The Horned Frogs outscored the Terriers 24-6 at the line.That wasnt a matter of the school from South Carolina coming to Texas and getting the bad end of the stick, Wofford coach Mike Young said. They were tougher. They were more aggressive. Consequently, they shot more foul shots than we did.BIG PICTUREWofford: The Terriers have been competitive in most of their losses, a solid sign in pursuit of another Southern Conference tournament title that would secure another trip to the NCAAs. I thought this one had the makings, Young said. Were getting closer. Certainly not off to the start that we anticipated.TCU: Dixon isnt ready to start thinking about the difficult Big 12 season. He sees an offense that strays from the plan too often, but has the promise to be competitive in one of the nations most difficult conferences.FIRST START, CAREER HIGHSlovakian forward Vladimir Brodziansky of TCU got his first start of the season and had a career-high five blocks to go with 10 points and eight rebounds. One of the boards came on a missed 3 by Williams with TCUs lead down to 64-61 with 1:37 remaining. It led to Parrishs second 3. Hes playing good. Got to play a little bit better post defense and score a little better, Dixon said. Hes improving. Theres no question.Freshman Desmond Bane added 10 points off the bench.UP NEXTWofford: The Terriers play Austin Peay at home Thursday followed by road games at Coastal Carolina (Dec. 19) and Georgia Tech (Dec. 22) before conference play starts Dec. 31 at home against Mercer.TCU: After an eight-day break, the Horned Frogs have two more tuneups before the Big 12 opener against No. 3 Kansas at home on Dec. 30. Texas Southern visits Dec. 18, followed by Bradley on Dec. 21.---More AP college basketball: and Anthony Hitchens Jersey .875,000, avoiding arbitration. Clippards deal Monday means all eight Nationals players who filed for arbitration wound up settling before a hearing. Stone Johnson Jersey . He was followed closely by David Clarkson, donning red, seconds later. Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. . -- Ohio States Urban Meyer has never had any issue acclimating to the biggest stages in college football. Len Dawson Jersey . It was Kerbers third final of the year after losing to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia in Monterrey in April and to Petra Kvitova of Czech Republic in Tokyo two weeks ago. The 10th-ranked German improved her record in finals to 3-5. Mecole Hardman Jersey Large . -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. SUZUKA, Japan -- Nico Rosberg set the fastest time in Fridays practice for the Japanese Grand Prix, edging Mercedes teammate and Formula One title rival Lewis Hamilton.Rosberg set the quickest lap in both sessions, with his best at 1 minute, 32.250 seconds; just seven hundredths of a second better than Hamilton.Its been a case of finding my way today, Rosberg said. It began with quite a lot of under-steer and we had to work through the setup in order to find a better balance on the car. In the afternoon, the medium tire didnt seem as strong as the hard as we saw in Malaysia. However, on the soft tire we showed strong one-lap pace, the balance felt good and the track was really exciting to drive. Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen was third, encouragingly only three tenths of a second off Rosbergs time. He was followed by Red Bull driver Max Verstappen, then Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel, who won four faces in Suzuka between 2009 and 2013.With five races remaining in the season, Rosberg holds a 23-point lead over Hamilton, who had an engine failure while leading last weekends Malaysian Grand Prix but is chasing a hat trick of victories in Japan.Its been a really good day with no problems on the car, which is great, Hamilton said. We managed to get plenty of laps in but theres still some work to be done overnight in order to find more pace.ddddddddddddain is forecast for Saturdays qualifying session.Rosbergs afternoon got off to an uncertain start when he pulled out of his garage 13 minutes into the session with wisps of smoke emerging from the back of his Mercedes.As he waited at the end of the pitlane, the smoke became slightly thicker and billowed out for a few seconds, but there was little trouble after that.He soon posted the fastest lap on hard tires and then set the pace on softer tires to remain ahead throughout the session.Force India pair Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg finished sixth and seventh fastest, with three tenths of a second separating the duo.Fernando Alonso of McLaren, Valtteri Bottas of Williams and Carlos Sainz Jr. of Toro Rosso completed the top 10. Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo, who won in Malaysia, was 12th.The second practice session was incident free other than when Esteban Gutierrez parked his Haas on the grass approaching the Degner curve following a turbo failure, prompting a virtual safety car.
