has not been nearly as bad as statistics Antworten

PHILADELPHIA -- Kris Jenkins already made the biggest basket in Villanova history, so he can be excused a bit that he was unaware he was so close to a career points milestone.Assigned to shoot free throws after Penn was whistled for a technical foul, Jenkins stood alone at the line and sank the first one for career point 999. He calmly made the second attempt and hit No. 1,000.Jenkins was mobbed by teammates and buried in confetti when his 3-pointer at the buzzer beat North Carolina for the national championship. For his little slice of Villanova history, Jenkins simply hustled back on defense.It doesnt mean much, he said.Coach Jay Wright was surprised as well after the game and gave Jenkins a hearty congratulatory slap on the back at the press conference table.With little fanfare or championship parades, the magic numbers keep piling up at Villanova.Jenkins hit six 3s and scored 22 points and No. 2 Villanova again flexed its Philly muscle at the famed Palestra and dominated Penn 82-57 on Tuesday night.Already the national champs, the Wildcats (7-0) proved its still the best in the Big 5. Villanova, Penn, La Salle, Saint Josephs and Temple have had its rivalry games intertwined in the fabric of Philadelphia sports for 61 years.No team has made the series their own like the Wildcats. They beat the Quakers (2-3) for the 14th straight time and settled in for another round-robin romp with its record 15th straight Big 5 victory.Wright downplayed the significance of the record.If were thinking about it, its not going to help us get better, he said.Get better? The Wildcats played about as well as they could against an underwhelmed Ivy League team, making 12 of 26 3s overall. They shot 60 percent from the floor in the first half and quickly squashed any thought Penn would become this weeks version of Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne.I dont mean to slight their talent, but theres a lot more talented teams in the country; not a ton, but theres a good share, more length, more size, more speed, depth, skill, Penn coach Steve Donahue said. But theres no team that plays together, and that hard, in every aspect of the game.The Quakers won the opening tip, the students that packed the Palestra roared, they missed their first shot -- and Jenkins buried a 3 on the other end. Donte DiVincenzo hit a 3, so did Mikal Bridges and Josh Hart added one and the Wildcats led 40-22.Jenkins hit three of Villanovas seven 3-pointers in the first half to put this one away in a hurry. Hart, who had 12 points and nine assists, had his right hand wrapped in ice after the game. He may have jammed his thumb.DiVincenzo scored 13 points and Darryl Reynolds had 12 points and eight boards.Jackson Donahue led Penn with 12 points.BIG PICTURE:Penn: The Quakers never quit in front of a student section wearing red Beat Nova T-shirts. The Quakers could be contenders to make the first Ivy League tournament in Donahues second season.Donahue didnt think Villanovas city dominance crippled overall enthusiasm for the Big 5.I think it motivates and inspires the other four programs, he said. If we won tonight, I dont know wed be saying that. All these games, I think its incredible. Im proud to be part of the Big 5 and have a national champion in our (city). I think it elevates all of us.Villanova: The Wildcats won their eighth straight game over Penn at the Palestra. The Wildcats are the first reigning NCAA champions to play at the famed basketball gym on the Penn campus since, well, Villanova on Jan. 27, 1986. The Wildcats play two more games against Philly teams before a Dec. 10 game against Notre Dame that could prove their next toughest test.POLL IMPLICATIONSVillanova should stay at No. 2 in the Top 25.NO HARTWright has never been shy about sitting starters for the slightest rules infractions. He benched Hart, the preseason Big East player of the year, for the start of his one because he was tardy to a workout session. DiVincenzo started for Hart.UP NEXTPenn: The Quakers face another tough city rival Saturday at Temple.Villanova: The Wildcats try and keep their Big 5 winning streak rolling Saturday at Saint Josephs.---More AP college basketball at and Vapormax Off White Shop .

At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. TAMPA, Fla. -- Jameis Winston has to play better for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to realize their potential. So does the supporting cast around the young quarterback.The second-year pros inconsistency has been a focal point during a slow start thats concerning not so much because of a 2/3 record as the way the team performed during a three-game losing streak that followed a season-opening win over the Falcons.Injuries have been a factor. So have an offense thats turned the ball over too much; a defense that hasnt generated enough pressure on opposing passers; and rookie kicker Roberto Aguayo (4 of 8 on field goals, one missed extra point), whos done little to stop lingering questions about whether it was a mistake to draft him in the second round.All that said, coach Dirk Koetter feels good about where the team sits in the NFC South race after beating the first-place Falcons (4-1) and three-time defending division champion Carolina Panthers (1-4) on the road in the first five weeks of the season.Now, this weekends bye offers an opportunity for several injured starters, including running back Doug Martin and defensive linemen Gerald McCoy and Robert Ayers Jr., to get healthy.It probably couldnt be at a better time for us, Koetter said of the break, which comes of the heels of a skid-ending 17-14 win over the Panthers.The momentum factor is one thing, the first-year coach added, but we have a chance to get several key members of our team back.Tampa Bay has missed the playoffs eight consecutive seasons, finishing last in the NFC South the past five.Martins return from a hamstring injury could be essential to Winston, who threw seven interceptions and lost two fumbles during the three-game skid, ending that trend.With the two-time Pro Bowl running back sidelined for three games and most of a fourth, the Bucs have been unable to run the ball consistently. Martin rushed for 1,402 yards a year ago, finishing second in the NFL behind Adrian Peterson. Through five games, Tampa Bay is averaging 3.3 yards per carry rushing.Thats placed a heavier burden on Winston, whos completed 58.5 percent of his passes for 1,327 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions.In Tampa Bays two victories, the Bucs attempted 62 passes. In losses to Arizona, Los Angeles and Denver, Winston threw 145 times.The importance of a productive rushing attack was evvident last Monday against Carolina, the first time this season the Bucs ran the ball more (37 carries, with Jacquizz Rodgers gaining 101 yards on 30 attempts) than Winston threw it (30 times without an interception).ddddddddddddI feel like Ive improved a lot from my first year to my second year, said Winston, who threw for more than 4,000 yards as a rookie. I just have to protect the football -- thats the main thing. Just put us in better situations to win football games.A healthy Martin can make a difference.Despite getting a big night against Carolina from Rodgers, who wasnt on the roster when the season began, Martins versatility was a huge part of Tampa Bay ranking fifth in total offense last season.Im excited for him to come back, Winston said. But I just think overall, as an offense, protecting the football is the main thing.Koetter also entered the bye week encouraged about the progress of the defense, which he says has not been nearly as bad as statistics might suggest.Tampa Bay is tied for 28th in points allowed (142), although Koetter notes opponents have benefited greatly from the Bucs turning over the ball and leaving the defense in bad situations.In addition, two of Winstons nine turnovers have been returned for touchdowns.Youre going to be judged as a defense ultimately by how many points youve given up, defensive coordinator Mike Smith said. Weve given up way too many points. And it doesnt matter where the drive starts, how it happened -- weve got to go out and stop them, and we havent shown the resiliency that we need to.The hope is the return of Ayers from an ankle injury thats sidelined him since Week 2, as well as a healthy McCoy -- who missed last Monday nights game after injuring his calf the previous week -- will bolster a defensive line that had to rely in part on an undrafted rookie and other backups in expanded roles.I think were a lot closer than we are away ... I can assure you that, Smith said. And, really theres one guy to me thats got to do a better job, and thats Mike Smith. Hes the guy thats got to make sure that these guys understand what were trying to get accomplished, what were trying to get done.---AP NFL website: and Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
