The Gaels lost six players from last years team that made the NCA Antworten

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Monica Puig has now earned a spot in Puerto Ricos history books. And she will be named in the same sentence along some of the islands legends.Puig won the womens tennis tournament at the 2016 Summer Olympics. It is Puerto Ricos first gold medal in 68 years of competition at the Summer Olympics.In fact, Puig is the first woman representing Puerto Rico to win an Olympic medal. Prior to her victory, Puerto Rico had previously won eight medals in the Summer Olympics -- six bronzes and two silvers, all by male athletes.Its amazing, Im so proud to be part of history, Puig said. It hasnt hit me just yet, but Im aware that one day Ill look back and maybe add a little value to what just happened.As soon as reality hits Puig, she will add a whole lot more value to what happened in Rio. She arrived as a heavy underdog who was ranked No. 34 in the world. It didnt matter. She took down Garbine Muguruza -- the 2016 French Open champion -- in the quarterfinals. Then Puig knocked out Petra Kvitova, who later would win bronze, in the semifinals.And maybe this will be a little sweeter when Puig realizes the impact of her defeat of second-seeded Angelique Kerber in three sets (6-4, 4-6, 6-1) to earn her place in history with a gold medal.I didnt lose, Kerber said. She beat me. She played close to perfection, made very few mistakes. She was everywhere. It was impressive.Impressive as in losing only two sets in the entire tournament.This medal has given me a huge boost in confidence, said Puig, who has never reached the quarterfinals in a Grand Slam tournament. I hope to really keep this momentum in the upcoming tournaments.Before the gold-medal match, the 22-year-old Puig kept her cool despite feeling a bit anxious. After doing video research of Kerber, she entered Centre Court on a mission.I knew it. If I didnt win, it would hurt me for four long years, Puig said. I played with all of my heart and soul. I had enormous faith in myself. It just raised my game to a whole new level. Wholesale Jerseys From China .

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Since the start of preseason practices, Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton has been selling his teams depth as their biggest advantage. On Tuesday night, the Seminoles put that on full display.Six players scored in double figures as the Seminoles cruised to a 99-78 victory over Iona. It is the first time since the 2014-15 opener against Manhattan that they have had that many players in double figures.Overall I was pleased with the direction, Hamilton said. The biggest challenge for us is to utilize the quality of the depth. Were trying to explain that we have to understand that each night it is going to be different guys that are going to step up. Were a team that is going to win by committee.Freshman Jonathan Isaac led the way with 20 points as the 2-0 Seminoles shot 58 percent from the floor (34 of 59) and were 30 of 42 when not shooting 3-pointers. Phil Cofer had 13 points and six rebounds while Terrance Mann (12), Jarquez Smith (12), Trent Forrest (10) and Dwayne Bacon (10) also scored in double figures.They also had nine players who saw 15 minutes or more of playing time as Hamilton continues to look for the best floor combinations.We just wanted to lock in and show people why we should be in the tournament. You cant decide that off two games but you just have to keep playing the way we were playing tonight, Bacon said.The Gaels led for most of the first five minutes before the Seminoles went on a 14-2 run for a 24-13 lead with 10:36 remaining. They would lead by as many as 18 in the first half and had a 47-32 advantage at halftime.FSU led by as many as 26 points midway in the second half as it extended its win streak in nonconference home games to 12.UConn transfer Sam Cassell Jr., who is the son of former NBA and Florida State standout Sam Cassell Sr., led Iona (0-1) with 28 points. Jordan Washington addded 16 and Jon Severe 12.dddddddddddd.The Gaels, who scored 37.3 percent of their points on 3-pointers last season, were 9 of 31 from beyond the arc.They have a lot more size than we have and when Jordan got in foul trouble it hurts our team, Iona coach Tim Cluess said. They did a good job of reversing and driving the ball on us along with really challenging us at the rim and getting us into foul trouble.BIG PICTUREIona: The Gaels lost six players from last years team that made the NCAA Tournament. With two sophomores in the starting lineup, they could struggle early in the season as coach Tim Cluess tries to work in six newcomers into the rotation.Florida State: Coach Leonard Hamilton was eager to see how his team would do against a quality mid-major opponent. The Seminoles struggled early, especially in their transition game, but freshmen Isaac and Forrest looked more relaxed in their second game, combining for 30 points.STAT OF THE NIGHTFlorida State is usually a good team from the free-throw line but it started out by missing seven of its first 10. The Seminoles though would end the night by making 24 of their last 30.HE SAID ITIt felt good getting on the court and playing down here. Its my fathers team. I wanted to beat him so I could talk trash to him but it is what it is. Cassell Jr.UP NEXTIona: The Gaels travel out west for a game against Nevada on Sunday. Ionas first six games are on the road and it doesnt have its first home game until Dec. 4 against Niagara.Florida State: The Seminoles host Winthrop on Friday as part of the NIT Season Tip-Off.---More AP college basketball at http://collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Joe Reedy on Twitter at www.twitter.com/joereedy Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jersyes Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
