I really like their guards.BIG PICTUREOmaha: Marcus Tyus has led the Mavericks in scoring through the first two games of the season but was held to only two points as he dealt with foul trouble most of the night.Kansas State: Starting forward Dean Wade was the only starter to not score in double figures as he finished with three points.STAT OF THE NIGHT: Kansas State was plus-7 on assist-to-turnover ratio while Nebraska-Omaha was minus-3.INJURY: Kansas State forward Dante Williams returned to practice this week but sat out during Tuesday nights contest as he is recovering from a concussion suffered this past week.UP NEXTOmaha: After opening up the season with their first three games on the road, the Mavericks will play their first home game against Rice on Saturday.Kansas State: The Wildcats host Hampton on Sunday in the third game of a four game home stand to start the season.

NEW YORK -- One by one, the hard-throwing young starters on the Mets pitching staff got hurt. Bartolo Colon, like Ol Man River, keeps on rollin along.The 43-year-old limited the Twins to three singles in seven innings, Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera hit consecutive home runs off rookie Jose Berrios in the third, and New York beat Minnesota 3-0 Friday night in the opener of the Mets final homestand this season.If we wouldnt have had him in our rotation, Im not sure where we would be right now, Mets manager Terry Collins said.Matt Harvey hasnt pitched since early July, and Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz all have been slowed by injuries. Colon (14-7) made his team-high 30th start and lowered his ERA to 3.14.Matched against a pitcher nearly half his age, Colon also helped himself with his glove -- starting an inning-ending 1-6-3 double play in the first and covering first base on a grounder to the right side in the seventh. He also picked off a runner in winning for the fourth time in five decisions.The burly, 285-pound pitcher smiled when asked about his quick move to the third base side of the mound on Jorge Polancos comebacker, which started the double play.Thats a routine play. I always do that, Colon said through a translator.New York opened a two-game lead over St. Louis for the second NL wild card and is one game behind San Francisco.Hopefully he continues to pitch like that because were going to need him, Reyes said.Colon, whose fastball averages just over 90 mph, was a free agent when he re-signed in December. New York expected Zack Wheeler to return in midseason and for Colon to shift to the bullpen, a role he excelled in last October.We thought it was a good signing knowing that he would give us innings early, Collins said. And here he is right in the pennant stretch in late September still carrying the staff.Colon allowed soft singles in the third to Berrios and Brian Dozier, who extended his hitting streak to 20 games with a slow bouncer to third, then retired Polanco on a flyout to escape bases-loaded trouble. Polanco singled in the sixth.He doesnt miss spots, Dozier said. I was telling some of these young guys just to kind of watch him tonight.Addison Reed pitched the eighth and Jeurys Familia worked around a pair of walks to complete the three-hitter, retiring pinch-hitter Kennys Vargas on a flyout to deep left for his 49th save in 53 chances.The 22-year-old Berrios (2-7), who was 2 when Colon made his big league debut in April 1997, allowed two runs and four hits in four innings.ddddddddddddHe was impressed by Colon.To be able to paint the corners like that is awesome, Berrios said through a translator.Reyes homered over the right-field wall on a curveball and, three pitches later, Cabrera sent a fastball into the right-field second deck. Yoenis Cespedes added an RBI single in the seventh off Pat Light.After the Twins, the Mets host the Atlanta Braves and Phillies before finishing with a six-game trip to Miami and Philadelphia.All weve got to continue to do is not worry about anything else except our business of trying to win a game each and every night, Collins said.REFRESHEDNew York is 14-2 after off days. The Mets have one remaining, on Sept. 29.HAIRYMets reliever Jerry Blevins joined Cabrera and Reyes with dyed blond hair.WHOOPSCespedes tried for a nonchalant basket catch on Max Keplers soft leadoff fly to left in the fourth only to have the ball tick off the webbing of his glove for an error. Colon then picked off Kepler, originally ruled safe by first base umpire Brian Gorman but called out on video review.WHIFFSTravis dArnaud is hitting .109 (5 for 46) with runners in scoring position. ...
