Louisville coach Rick Pitino told reporters on Tuesday that hes still working to find the right lineup to suit his No. 11-ranked Cardinals.Its not ideal, but its likely what we need to keep going, said Pitino, who noted he expects to use four or five players in the paint until a pair of players become more reliable.That lineup will be on display Wednesday as the Cardinals (7-1) face Southern Illinois (5-3) at 7 p.m. in the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville.Pitinos shuffle in the low block has been made more complicated recently because 7-foot center Anas Mahmoud missed the last game and will miss both contests this week with a concussion.The medical file on Anas is about this thick, Pitino said, motioning a sizable margin. He just takes a little longer to come back, actually about 50 percent longer to return that other players -- and from everything, not just this concussion. ... But it has allowed us to get a better look at Matz (Stockman).The good news for Pitino is that he has options. Louisvilles roster is loaded with talented big men -- 6-foot-9 starting forward Jaylen Johnson, 6-10 starting center Mangok Mathiang, 6-10 Ray Spalding, 7-0 Mahmoud and 7-1 Stockman.The Salukis only have one player taller than 6-8 on the roster. Thats 6-9 sophomore post Rudy Stradnieks, who averages just 2.9 points and 2.6 rebounds per game.But Pitino said his crew cant take the Salukis lightly.They are a veteran team, Pitino said. They wont be intimidated by us, thats for sure.Pitino said he likes what he has seen in practice from a tall, quick lineup of 6-6 VJ King at one guard spot, 6-7 Deng Adel at another and Spalding in the post. That lineup provides Louisville with its most-athletic lineup, Pitino said Tuesday.While Louisville would prefer to speed things up, SIU coach Barry Hinson is known for slowing down the pace of a game. His teams are infamous for grinding defensive pressure, but he says they are having to change their ways this season with the NCAAs new emphasis on flow of action.Getting up on guys -- those days are over, Hinson told the SIU Daily Egyptian. Im an old school guy. Ive always been about get in their grill, get up, get in them, bother them -- do all this stuff. Those days are over.Hinson said he blames himself for not preparing his team for the changes better earlier this season.I think were finally starting to adjust a little bit, Hinson said. We fouled way too much in the first part of the season. We were way too aggressive on our defense with our hands and not getting into position and not moving, so I dont think thats as much our players fault as it is my fault.The Salukis started the season off with a tough 85-81 home loss to Wright State before falling 90-65 at Aransas. SIU returned home to beat Missouri Southern State, SIU-Edwardsville and Mount St. Marys before a 57-45 road loss at Minnesota on Nov. 25. SIU beat Murray State 89-65 in overtime last Tuesday and most recently beat Texas Southern 74-70.Senior guard Mike Rodriguez (14.5 ppg) and senior guard Leo Vincent (11.6 ppg) take the bulk of SIUs shots along with 6-4 wing Armon Fletcher (13.5 ppg).They are a veteran ball club, Pitino said. Rodriguez is always getting into the lane. Vincent can score. You have five guys scoring the ball. They play the game the right way.The Cardinals started the season 5-0 with wins over Evansville, William & Mary, Long Beach State, Old Dominion and Wichita State before falling to No. Baylor in the Battle 4 Atlantis title game 66-63. Since then, Louisville took down then-No. 15 Purdue 71-64 and beat Grand Canyon in Phoenix 79-70.I watched them play Purdue, Hinson said. I didnt sleep that night at all.Hinson, only half kidding about his lack of sleep, said he wants his team loose and ready to play Wednesday night.You know what? Lets lace them up and lets go, Hinson said. Weve got nothing to lose when we go there and were going to play. Itll be a great opportunity. Im looking forward to it. D.J. Alexander Jersey .

Peter Holland and Brad Staubitz were sent to Toronto on Saturday as the Maple Leafs traded defenceman Jesse Blacker and draft picks to the Anaheim Ducks. http://www.seahawksauthenticofficialonline.com/authentic-steve-largent-jersey.html .Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Wednesday that J. Richard Sherman Jersey . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. Luke Willson 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. Its the fondest of AFL farewells but Paul Roos will be aghast if thats what motivates his Melbourne team against Geelong on Saturday.Ross will coach the final game of his decorated career against Geelong at Simonds Stadium, vowing not to step back into the coaches box after a premiership-winning stint at Sydney and a three-year rebuild of foundation club Melbourne.Among coaches, there are few as well liked or as well respected as Roos.At the Swans he is revered.In Melbourne circles, he is lauded.And across the AFL, he is admired without exception.While others might see the occasion as a chance to send off the boss with a win against finals-bound opposition, Roos said hed rather his players were driven by the future.Internally its not at all do it for Roosy. Theres no mention of that at all and I hope there isnt, he said.He he wants his young side to use the match against the high-flying Cats as a slingshot to 2017.Surprisingly, Roos nominates the round 23 win last year against Greater Western Sydney as the most critical of his tenure with the Demons.As silly as it sounds, to go from six wins to seven and the vibe after that game, I think it drove the pre-season a fair bit, he said.It led to a fantastic pre-season and some real excitement.Up until then there was a fair bit of inconsistency .dddddddddddd.. we talk about consistency, our percentage (in 2016) is 103 per cent.Considering Roos inherited a side that had won just two AFL matches, with a percentage of 54 for the season, its easy to see why the 53-year-old coach has already declared this season a success.Looking back, Roos joked of chief executive Peter Jacksons initial description of the club.He didnt paint it like it was a Mona Lisa. It was a bit of a crayon thing from kindergarten when I got here.He is adamant he wont return to coaching, dedicating next year to travel and family time.There will be no shortage of job offers further up the AFLs pecking order Roos, who took Sydney to the 2005 premiership before starting the renovation job at Melbourne.Both sides have made three changes for Saturdays match.Roos has brought in Jeff Garlett, Christian Salem and James Harmes, dropping Clayton Oliver, Alex Neal-Bullen and Viv Michie.Chris Scott has returned Jimmy Bartel, Josh Caddy and Daniel Menzel to his side, axing Shane Kersten and Darcy Lang while losing Lachie Henderson, who has undergone minor knee surgery.The Cats will lock up a top-four finish with a win.
