                                      BOSTON -- Boston College dribbled out the clock, and the few hundred fans at the Conte Forum rose to sing the school fight song. http://www.49ersrookiestore.com/49ers-Eli-Harold-Jersey/ .So this is what it looks like after a BC victory.The Eagles snapped a 20-game losing streak on Tuesday night, getting 16 points from Jerome Robinson and 13 rebounds from Mo Jeffers to beat Maryland-Eastern Shore 73-57. It was BCs first victory since Dec. 30, 2015, including an 0-18 Atlantic Coast Conference record that was a first for the league.All summer, we had a bad taste in our mouths, said forward Connar Tava, a graduate transfer who wasnt a part of the 2015-16 team that went 7-25 and lost its last 19 games. This was a stepping stone. We need to build off it.Tava had 10 rebounds, and A.J. Turner scored 13 points for BC (1-1), which opened the season with a loss to Nicholls State that stretched the losing streak to 20.Coach Jim Christian said his players werent dwelling on the skid -- especially the five freshmen and two transfers who had no part of it.Seven of them are 1-1. Those guys dont worry about any of that, he said. People outside worry about it -- and they should. But inside, we just needed to get better. We got better.Bakari Copeland scored 14 points and Dontae Caldwell had 10 rebounds for the Hawks (0-3).Copeland made the first basket of the game for the Hawks only lead. It was tied 5-all before BC scored eight straight points. The Eagles went on an 8-1 run near the end of the first half to open a 39-27 lead.The Hawks got as close as seven points, 49-42, with 12 minutes left in the second. But Ky Bowman hit a 3-pointer, Jordan Chatman made a basket and A.J. Turner and Garland Owens had dunks to make it a 16-point game.The thing I really wanted to see was a response, Christian said. We came out the first five minutes and played hard. Thats progress.BIG PICTUREMaryland-Eastern Shore: In the middle of a five-game road trip, the Hawks travel to Kansas, Colorado and Louisiana before returning home.Boston College: The losing streak is over. The Eagles will try to pick up a couple of more wins on the non-conference schedule before resuming ACC play on Jan. 1 against Syracuse.SHORE SCOREThe Hawks scored 71 and 73 points in their two losses, to George Washington and Maryland-Baltimore County. They had gone 23 straight games without scoring as few as 57.To keep them at (57) was a huge step forward for us, Christian said.MORE REGRETSRobinson was a freshman on the BC team that went winless in the ACC, but its the 79-73 loss to Nicholls State that was on his mind this weekend.That night, I didnt really talk to anybody. It was not the way I wanted the season to start, he said. We went right back to work after it. We didnt want to have a relapse.UP NEXTMaryland-Eastern Shore: Plays at Wichita State on Sunday.Boston College: Hosts Stony Brook on Sunday in the opening round of the Barclays Center Classic. http://www.49ersrookiestore.com/49ers-Joe-Montana-Jersey/ .

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- On a weekend when one of their all-time great quarterbacks will be celebrated and their current quarterback is expected to be a spectator, the Green Bay Packers are likely to play the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game with two undrafted, rookie, free-agent quarterbacks: Joe Callahan and Marquise Williams.Unless, of course, Brett Favre wants to take off his new gold jacket and don his now-retired, green-and-gold No. 4 for one more night.Brett Hundley, the Packers No. 2 quarterback, sat out his second straight practice Thursday night with an ankle injury, putting his status for Sundays game in doubt. And although Packers coach Mike McCarthy has not officially said whether two-time NFL MVP?Aaron Rodgers?will sit out Sundays game against the Indianapolis Colts, Rodgers was given the night off from practice Thursday, a telltale sign that he will not play.Last year, the Minnesota Vikings Teddy Bridgewater and the Pittsburgh Steelers Ben Roethlisberger did not play in the Hall of Fame Game, and Rodgers didnt sound like he was expecting to play when he spoke with reporters earlier in the week.If Im not playing -- and I havent played a ton in the preseason the last couple years -- Im on the headset, Im listening to the plays, Im helping [Hundley] out, and Ill be there for Joe and Marquise as well, Rodgers said. I stay dialed into the game.Ill enjoy some laughs when the defense is out there, but Ill be watching the game, for sure. When the guys from my room are out there playing, Im going to be involved in what theyre doing and talking to them when theyre coming off the side and making sure that theyre seeing the right things and feeling good about the progressions.If Rodgers sits out and Hundley cant go, Callahan would probably start, because he has worked as the No. 3 quarterback since signing with the Packers after the draft. Williams would then relieve him, having not joined the team until three weeks after Callahan in May.I think you have to be ready for the alternative, McCarthy said before practice. The two young quarterback were going to play a lot anyway going into it, and the game plan for offense will reflect that.Thats the way it goes.Calllahan, who is 6-foot-1, 216 pounds, had a record-setting career at Division III Wesley College, a liberal arts school in Dover, Delaware. http://www.49ersrookiestore.com/49ers-Trent-Brown-Jersey/. As a senior last season, he threw for 5,063 yards and 55 touchdowns en route to the Gagliardi Trophy, awarded to the best player in Division III. The Packers were the lone team to show interest in him before the draft.Im going to prepare for as many plays as they give me and make sure that I prepare as much as possible, Callahan said before Thursdays practice.Williams, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound quarterback, left North Carolina after having set more than 20 school records, including career rushing yards (2,458) and touchdowns (35) by a quarterback.Marquise has really picked up, and Joes done a very good job of improving, McCarthy said.Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Monday that he plans to play quarterback Andrew Luck and the rest of his healthy players, though Pagano hasnt said how long his starters will play. McCarthy said throughout the offseason that Hundley would get extended work during the Packers five preseason games, having been promoted after serving as the Packers No. 3 quarterback as a rookie last season behind Rodgers and Scott Tolzien, who now backs up Luck with the Colts.Hundley, a fifth-round pick from UCLA last year, was magnificent in preseason last summer, completing 45 of 65 passes for 630 yards with an NFL-best seven touchdown passes and a passer rating of 129.7, the second highest in the 2015 preseason.McCarthy said before practice that he and his staff would have their playing-time meeting Friday morning after getting the medical report from head athletic trainer Bryan Engel and team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie. But it looks as if itll be the Callahan and Williams Show on ESPN on Sunday night.First time, on national TV, so this will be pretty cool, Callahan said. Its exciting. I cant wait.Meanwhile, Packers running back Eddie Lacy, who dropped out of practice Wednesday night with an ankle injury, watched practice Thursday night. He appears unlikely to play as well.

Cheap Air Max 95 Grey .Chase Headley added two singles and drove in the go-ahead run for the Yankees, who improved to 3-4 on their 10-game trip. Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury had two hits and an RBI apiece.Cleveland, which leads the American League Central, lost its second straight home game after 13 wins in a row at Progressive Field. It had the potential winning run on base with two outs in the ninth, but Tyler Naquin was thrown out on a close play at first.Naquin was initially awarded an infield single -- off the glove of first baseman Mark Teixeira -- before the call was overturned on a challenge by New York manager Joe Girardi. Second baseman Starlin Castros throw to pitcher Aroldis Chapman nipped him to the bag.The Yankees scored three times in the sixth inning to take a 5-2 lead. Headley and Ellsbury had RBI singles, while Rob Refsnyder delivered a sacrifice fly that chased Indians starter Trevor Bauer (7-3).Headley drove in Castro with a hit to right field, thanks to Girardis first successful challenge. Castro was ruled out at home, but the replay showed that he slid under the tag of Indians catcher Chris Gimenez.Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova (6-5) stopped a two-game losing streak and earned his first road victory since June 3, at Baltimore. He struck out six in 5 1/3 innings, allowing four runs, in the opener of the four-game series.Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller followed and combined for 2 2/3 scoreless innings. Chapman gave up two hits in the ninth before picking up his 17th save.Naquin, a rookie, and Jason Kipnis homered in the third to give Cleveland a 2-0 lead. New York tied the game in the fifth when Gregorius belted his career-high 10th home run and Gardner had an RBI single.Bauer suffered his first loss since May 21, surrendering five runs in 5 2/3 innings.

                                      NEWARK, N. Cheap Jordan 1 Retro All Blue .J. -- With a four game road trip looming, the New Jersey Devils knew how important two back-to-back, home-and-home sets would be. Kyle Quincey said the teams goal was to win all four games.New Jersey went out and did just that.Nick Lappin and Kyle Palmieri scored in the second period to lead the Devils to a 4-2 victory over the Sabres on Saturday night, beating Buffalo for the second straight night. Earlier in the week, New Jersey beat Carolina twice in three nights.When you look at the wins, its a combination of very good effort by the players, making smart decisions, making right decisions, making good plays, playing with passion, playing with purpose and having some mental toughness, Devils coach John Hynes said. I think when you look at this past week weve had those things more times than not, and thats why weve been able to find a way to win.Quincey and John Moore also scored for the Devils, and Cory Schneider stopped 21 shots. Taylor Hall, Adam Henrique and Damon Severson had two assists each.Marcus Foligno and Matt Moulson scored for the Sabres, who have lost four straight. Robin Lehner finished with 23 saves.Lappin gave the Devils a 2-1 lead at 6:11 of the second as he took a pass from Hall on a 2-on-1 and fired a shot past Lehner for his second career goal.Hes one of the most skilled players in the league so when I see him get the puck there I have a pretty good feeling its going to end up on my stick if hes passing it, Lappin said. I was just waiting for it and he made a great play and I was able to get it in.Palmieri made it 3-1 from the right circle with 8:47 left in the second for his third of the season. The goal withstood a video review after the Sabres challenged for an offside call.Moores shot off a pass from Henrique on a 2-on-1 trickled by Lehner 6 1/2 minutes into the third to give the Devils a three-goal cushion.The goal came during 4-on-4 play. Buffalos Evander Kane was sent to the penalty box for hooking Vernon Fiddler at 5:32. However, the Devils power play was short-lived as Severson was whistled for cross-checking the Sabres Johan Larsson 42 seconds later.Moulson capped the scoring at 9:43 of the third period with William Carrier getting his first NHL point on the play.Quincey scored his first goal with New Jersey for a 1-0 lead 4:01 into the game as his slap shot from right in front of the blue line found the back of the net.The Sabres tied it 3:41 into the second period as Brian Gionta picked off a pass by Jacob Josefson and found Folingo, who had a clear path to the goal.We had that push back, we were able to tie it up and when they are able to stop the momentum and create one of their own, Brian Gionta said. Its tough.Game notes The Devils went 0 for 4 on power play, extending their streak to 20 straight man-advantage situations without a goal. ... New Jersey signed its third-round draft pick, 19-year-old forward Brandon Gignac, to a three-year, entry level contract.

The British were supposed to dominate the Olympic road race in London, ushering sprint ace Mark Cavendish over the lumpy course in the Surrey countryside and delivering him to the finish at Buckingham Palace.Instead, Kazakh rider Alexander Vinokourov boldly broke away for gold.Four years later, things could be even more unpredictable when riders line up at famed Copacabana Beach on the first full day of the Rio Olympics.The first medal event of the cycling program will feature one of the most challenging road courses in Olympic history, a hilly ride on the Brazilian coast that could whittle the field to a handful of riders by the time they reach the finish at Flamengo Park.Its a really gnarly course, said Jim Miller, the vice president of athletics for USA Cycling.Just as gnarly is the time trial course, which uses a rolling portion of the road course, and at 36 miles for the men and nearly 20 for the women is long enough to tax even the most powerful riders.I think its maybe one of the hardest stand-alone time trials Ive ever seen, Miller said. You are looking at an hour-long TT for the guys, and one thats not at all straightforward.Indeed, the road races and time trials are complex events. Here is a breakdown of what you should know:COURSES MATTERFast, flat courses favor sprinters, and the courses in Brazil are neither flat nor fast. They are more like a one-day race in Northern Europe, complete with cobbled sections and tough climbs. Riders such as Tour de France champion Chris Froome could have a chance to shine.AMERICAN HOPESThere are only two American men in the event, Taylor Phinney and Brent Bookwalter. Phinney has medal aspirations -- he was fourth in both races in London. The American women will arrive at the Rio Games as heavy favorites. Megan Guarnier is the top-ranked rider in the Womens WorldTour and will be backed on the road by a strong cast of veterans, while Kristin Armstrong is the two-time and defending time trial champ.I feel prepared, Armstrong said, and am really looking forward to the challenging time trial course.NAMES TO WATCHAlejandro Valverde and Joaquin Rodriquez of Spain, Vincenzo Nibali of Italy and Rui Costa of Portugal are some oof the men with the skills suited for Rios road course. Cheap Jordan 1 Retro Green. . Reigning gold medalist Marianne Vos and fellow Dutchwoman Anna van der Breggen are among the headliners in the womens field, while Britains Lizzie Armitstead will have to survive the tough climbs to have a shot.In the time trial, Bradley Wiggins decided to compete on the track rather than defend his gold, so Tony Martin becomes the favorite with Dutch rider Tom Dumoulin and Australian star Rohan Dennis joining Froome in trying to dethrone the German powerhouse. In the womens race, world champion Linda Villumsen of New Zealand, German star Lisa Brennauer and Ellen van Dijk of the Netherlands should contend.I have great memories of London and winning bronze in the time trial, Froome said. I will be giving it everything I can in Rio to try and win another medal for Great Britain.WHO IS MISSINGVinokourov retired shortly after his road race triumph in London, while Cavendish joined Wiggins in switching back to the track. But the biggest name missing is world champ Peter Sagan, who decided to compete in mountain biking after deciding the road course was too tough for him.The aim is to achieve the best result, said Slovak Cycling Federation executive Jan Zilovec. Peter in the past managed to win the World Cup in mountain biking, so his chances of a good outcome are realistic.AVOIDING CONTROVERSYVinokourov put doping in the spotlight with his victory in London after his much-publicized history with performance-enhancing drugs. But perhaps getting more attention during the run-up to Rio has been mechanical doping, the use of tiny motors inside frames to give riders an edge. The sports world governing body, the UCI, has poured money and research into developing tablets and other devices to test for improper mechanics. Keeping the race controversy-free has never been more complex.Its cheating, and people will always try, UCI president Brian Cookson said. But well be working with the IOC, well have delegates to the technical checks and well work together to ensure a clean race.

You would be forgiven for wondering if Niki Lauda is in the pay of the British Grand Prix promoters. New Balance Running Shoes For Sale . He says statements regarding Lewis Hamilton allegedly smashing up an office, and speculation on the Englishmans relationship with Nico Rosberg, were due to a misunderstanding.Maybe so. The stable door may have been bolted but the horse, known as a nice little runner in media terms, has long since bolted to the motor sport websites and galloped on from there to the wild blue yonder. In the light of the misunderstanding, these same media outlets are hardly likely to say: Oh, I would no longer bother with the British Grand Prix if I were you. Nothing going on there. Lets go watch a tennis player smashing his racquet or a footballer tripping over a blade of grass.Sports editors have already tasked their correspondents with finding F1 stories, preferably about the home hero if hes got a chance of winning. Hamilton fits the bill perfectly, thanks to tales of his rearranging the furniture in Baku and that controversial finish in Austria last weekend. Its manna from Heaven or, in this case, from the Mercedes motorhome. This stuff is a sports writers dream. Some people may disapprove of the resulting hype, but thats the way of the media - and always has been.In 1996, Damon Hill was the main man. Having won the British Grand Prix for Williams in 1994, only to lose the championship a few months later to Michael Schumacher in that controversial incident in Adelaide and then collide with the Benetton at Silverstone in 1995, Damon came to his home race a year later having just won the French Grand Prix. If he repeated such an easy victory at home, he would be three wins clear of Williams team-mate Jacques Villeneuve in their fight for the 1996 title.The papers were blithely saying that Hill was a shoo-in for the championship. When he put his Williams-Renault on pole, a sixth win of the season seemed certain. If anything, the British Grand Prix backstory was almost too nice. Searching for colour and drama, a tabloid newspaper discovered that German flags had been ripped from a caravan belonging to a group of Schumacher fans. Neither officials nor the police knew anything of the incident but Hill was reported to be quick in distancing himself from the actions of his alleged supporters.Such a mature and mellow attitude was typical of the atmosphere that year. Villeneuve and Hill got on well; there was harmony within Williams (unlike in 1995, when Frank publically referred to Damon as a bit of a prat). But, as we know, motor racing is not that simple. Hill, mysteriously never in the reckoning in this race, eventually spun off at Copse thanks to a seized wheel bearing. Villeneuve won. By Monday morning, the newspapers had changed their tune. Was Hill ever going to win this title?There had been a similar theme ten years before at Brands Hatch when Nigel Mansell appeared to be fighting his Williams-Honda team-mate, Nelson Piquet, just as much as Ayrton Senna in the Lotus-Renault and McLarens Alain Prost. There was additional media emotion attached to Frank Williams making his first public appearance since his near-fatal accident four months before. Similar to Hill 10 years later, Mansell had answered British sports writers prayers by winning the previous race in France, only to add spice to the British Grand Prix by failing to beat Piquet to pole - but then hammering the Brazilian in the race.And yet all of this was tame compared to forty years ago. On a scorching afternoon at Brands Hatch, the crowd went into riot mode when it seemed James Hunt would be barred from taking the restart after his McLaren had been damaged in a first-corner shunt. The fact that the pile-up had been caused by the dastardly Ferrari drivers hitting each other added further heat to an already tense season which exploded in very un-British terms as beer cans rained onto the track. Hunt was eventually allowed to start, went on to beat Niki Laudas Ferrari and score a hugely emotional win -- only to be disqualified at a later date and heap even more controversy onto a season in which the 1976 British Grand Prix had played a significant part. The F1 media was in seventh heaven.Twenty years before that, sports reportage had been a more gentle affair in which the only noise generated by F1 writers was the clacking of their portable typewriters. It was as if they had become attuned to not expecting a British driver to win the championship. Ever.Even though Stirling Moss had produced an immaculate win at Monaco, the 1956 title seemed to be going the way of Juan Manuel Fangio for the fourth time (the championship had only been running for seven seasons).The British Grand Prix at Silverstone would sum up Mosss luck. Driving a works Maserati, Moss claimed pole and led every lap until the fuel tank split (dealt with, would you believe, by stopping for more fuel!) and he finally succumbed to a broken rear axle, but not before setting fastest lap (worth one point). Fangios Lancia-Ferrari took the win but the humble Argentinean was quick to pay tribute to the Englishman 18 years his junior.The respect was mutual. Moss and Fangio had been teammates at Mercedes the previous year. And there were, on occasions, team orders laid down by the legendary Alfred Neubauer. This was a colossus of a man who ran the team like clockwork, personally organising everything from quiet hotel rooms for his drivers to how they would run their races, assuming they were in front. Which they usually were.We could do with Herr Neubauer in the pits today. Not so much to control Hamilton and Rosberg but to scare the living daylights out of inventive journalists salivating over what Lewis might or might not have done behind closed doors.

Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third.

                                      League of Legends publisher and developer Riot Games announced significant plans for its esports initiative Thursday, addressing long-term league partnerships with teams, increasing prize pools and team profits through digital revenue streams, and focusing on sponsorships and media relations. Cheap Air Max 270 Flyknit Brown .Riots statement comes in light of recent public criticism and disputes involving the publishers esports division and its players and teams. This includes an unprecedented ban of three teams and a multiday public dispute between Riot co-founder Marc Merrill and Team SoloMid owner Andy Dinh. The statement was made via a news release.Riot says its changes are intended to put more money in the pockets of players and give more power and responsibility to team owners and organizations. Increased investment from big-name athletes, celebrities and investors have engorged player salaries and team costs, making it increasingly difficult for leagues and teams to keep players, and for organizations to keep up with the quickly changing landscape.Starting with the League of Legends World Championship this year, Riot says that 25 percent of Championship skins and Wards will be put toward the Worlds prize pool, and 25 percent of the Challenger skin will go toward the Mid-Season Invitational prize pool. Had this been applied to last years Worlds, the prize pool would have more than doubled. This model is similar Dota 2s The International, which raised an industry record $20 million.Teams that win Worlds will be compensated with 25 percent of their championship skins sales going directly to the players, team and league. Riot said this move is retroactive to Season 1 champions, Fnatic.Esports promotions, in-game team-branded items, increased revenue share on Summoner Icons and other opportunities are mentioned in the news release, with each of Riots 13 regional leagues guaranteeing a minimum amount to each team to help address an immediate gap in team revenue. In its example, Riot stated that each European LCS teams would have a minimum guaranteed revenue of €100,000, with 50 percent of that going to players as supplemental income.To address the issue of team stability, Riot stated that it is looking for long-term partnerships with teams that will allow for more roster and player consistency from one season to the next. While the concept of franchising versus relegation has been a hotly debated topic in the LoL community, Riot owns the game League of Legends, and it has not revealed any plans to offer teams an ownership stake in LCS the way an NFL team has an ownership stake the league.The idea of a long-term partnership is a major step. That allows teams to think on a longer time frame ... the future [that we want to build] will be highly unlikely without the teams thinking on the same time frame that were thinking, Riot co-director of esports Whalen Rozelle told ESPN.com.You make different decisions when youre thinking in the short term and the long term. And the increased economic activity in the scene will ensure both security long term and give teams the confidence to sign players to longer-term contracts.With each of the 13 League of Legends leagues around the world at different stages of growth, long-term partnerships could look different per region. Riot looks to take the partnership step in 2018.Riot said it has been working for over a year on expanding the way it tackles sponsorship sales and media distribution, but would not share details while the deals get finalized. However, Riot does say team merchandise as resonated well with fans, and it will continue to work with organizations to get gear into the market.Permanence matters, Rozelle said. Having long-term partnerships matters a great deal. But also that were a unique sport and were going to have to chart our own path as well.The League of Legends World Championship kicks off Sept. 29 in San Francisco with stops in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles on Oct. 29.

The newspaper reported that after meeting recently with Denver Broncos general manager John Elway, Manning is certain the time has come to call it a day.Manning helped the Denver Broncos defeat the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl earlier this month.

                                      COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Marc Loving scored 18 points and Kam Williams added 17 more to lift Ohio State to a 70-62 win over Fairleigh Dickinson on Saturday. Marcus Sherels Jersey .JaeSean Tate and Trevor Thompson each had double-doubles for OSU (7-1), combining for 22 points and 25 rebounds. Williams, getting his fifth straight start for the injured Keita Bates-Diop, shot 7 for 13 from the field, hitting 3 of 6 from long range.Fairleigh Dickinson (2-5) trailed by just one point heading into halftime, and even had as much as a six-point lead in the first half. OSU opened the second half with an 18-2 run to stretch its advantage to 51-34 with 14:34 to go.Thompson started the second half instead of freshman center Micah Potter, which made an immediate impact. However, following that run, the Knights continued to chip into the lead without changing much of their game plan.In the final minutes, FDU cut the deficit to just six points before OSUs JaQuan Lyle iced the game with two free throws.Initially, defensively, we were good . but we didnt finish possessions, OSU coach Thad Matta said. Even some of the shots they missed were wide open. Thats just a sign of we werent as sharp as we needed to be.Darian Anderson led Fairleigh Dickinson with 17 points, and Kaleb Bishop added 12 to make it his second straight game with double figures. Knights coach Greg Herenda said that his team matched up better against OSU than it did against Army (4-4), their previous opponent.The Buckeyes were coming off a near-upset win at No. 6 Virginia on Wednesday that somehow didnt translate to the court on Saturday. Williams said that, for whatever reason, the team continues to play down to its opponents rather than remaining consistent.I feel like this team is at its best when were about to play a game and we play like our hairs on fire, he said. When we play these games, we dont have that sense of urgency.Both teams shot better in the second half, OSU at 53.6 percent and Fairleigh Dickinson at 41.7 percent. Despite Thompsons 13 rebounds and five blocked shots, the Knights still had 28 points in the paint and grabbed nine offensive rebounds to OSUs eight.We did just enough to have a chance to win and to do extraordinary things, you need to play extraordinary, Herenda said. Ohio State was just too big, too long and too good today.BIG PICTUREOhio State: The turnover bug continues to bite the Buckeyes, who turned the ball over seven times in the first 10 minutes of the game and 14 total. In OSUs last game, the team coughed up 20 turnovers to Virginia and allowed the Cavaliers to overcome a 12-point halftime deficit.JaQuan Lyle struggled for a second straight game with only seven points and five turnovers with five assists.Thompson said that Matta told the team that the Fairleigh Dickinson performance showed signs of regression.Fairleigh Dickinson: The Knights have had their struggles through seven games following last seasons conference tournament championship and NCAA tournament bid. However, at several points, Fairleigh Dickinson exposed the Buckeyes.These games help us so much down the road, Herenda said. Today it hurts and it stings, but as the season goes on, these games help us tremendously.UP NEXTThe Buckeyes host a midweek matchup against Florida Atlantic on Tuesday before welcoming the Connecticut Huskies to the Schottenstein Center on Dec. 10.Fairleigh Dickinson returns home on Wednesday to play the Iona Gaels before beginning a three-game road trip at Towson.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Cheap Vapormax Plus All White . -- A former Vanderbilt football player was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison after he was convicted of taking part in the gang rape of an unconscious female student.Davidson County Criminal Court Judge Monte Watkins handed down the sentence for Cory Batey after the victim in the case said her life has been shattered as a result of the rape.The woman was a neuroscience and economics major when she was assaulted in a dorm on the Nashville campus in June of 2013. In all, four former football players were charged. The Associated Press does not generally identify victims of sexual assault.The players used their cellphones to take pictures of the rape. One also videoed it and sent the footage to friends as it was happening.The victim said she learned of what happened to her when detectives showed her the graphic images retrieved from the phones.During her victim impact statement, she described the horror she felt seeing the images of herself.Ive seen with my own eyes what I was when Mr. Batey was done with me: a piece of trash, face down in a hallway, covered in his urine and palm prints, a photograph he took himself, the woman said. There are no words to describe the horror of the images from that night and how it feels to watch yourself be dehumanized.She wept throughout much of her statement as she described how her life and her belief in the fundamental goodness of people were both upended with the discovery of what happened to her.The victim has had to testify at multiple trials, and Bateys high-profile status and the international attention the case received left her in constant fear of being known as the victim. As a result, she said she feels the attack on her continues throughout every new court proceeding.Everything the defendant has done in this case and the media circus surrounding it have been a continuous disruption, repeatedly dragging me back every single step I try to take forward, she said. I can only feel that the defendant has intentionally wanted this to be as tortuous for me as possible.The sentencing comes amid widespread furor over a Stanford University swimmer who was sentenced to six months in jail for a similar crime: sexually assaulting an unconscious woman on a college campus.In Tennessee, the judge did not have the discretion to give Batey a lighter sentence. Batey was convicted in April of aggravated rape, which carries a sentence of 15 to 25 years.Prosecutors asked for the maximum, saying the crime was particularly egregious and that the punishment would send a message about campus rapes.Prosecutors have said Batey urinated on the woman and made a racial statement at the end of the attack. Batey is African-American and the woman is white. One of the four former players is also white. They did not say what the statement was.The victims said Batey violated her sexually in multiple ways, but it didnt end there.Mr. Batey continued to abuse and degrade me, urinating on my face while uttering horrific racial hate speech that suggested I deserved what he was doing to me because of the color of my skin.Batey, a 22-year-old who grew up in Nashville, apologized to the victim and to his family and mother. He also apologized to Vanderbilt University. He testified at one of his trials that he was drunk and blacked out at the time of the rape.My mother and family did not raise me in any way to mistreat anyone, let alone a woman, as I have been raised predominantly by women, Batey told the court. I hope that if not today, maybe one day, you will find it in your heart to forgive me for any damages that I may have caused.Batey and Brandon Vandenburg were convicted last year, but the verdicts were tossed because a juror did not reveal he was a victim of statutory rape. They have both been convicted a second time. Two other players are awaiting trial.In handing down his sentence, Judge Watkins said the case stood out among the thousands he has seen in 32 years of practicing law.Ive seen so many cases, and this is one of the saddest, Watkins said.

Caulfield StakesGulp. Here goes. Champion mare Winx is vulnerable in Saturdays Group I Caulfield Stakes, and heres why.Its hardly to her benefit that she has frightened away all bar two rivals, with a slow pace and riding tactics to be more influential in the outcome than is usually the case.None of the three contestants is a leader, but its probable the one with the most tactical speed, Black Heart Bart, will take it up and run the race to suit.Winxs rider, Hugh Bowman, wont give Brad Rawiller too much leeway, but in Black Heart Bart the hot favourite will be asked to run down an in-form, high-class animal wholl kick off the corner with plenty in reserve and likely keep kicking.Favourites have a mixed record in this race -- think El Segundo in 2006, Pompeii Ruler in 2008, Lion Tamer in 2011, even Kermadec last year -- and small fields whatever the event have a habit of tossing up curious results.Theres no potting the great mare -- how could you? -- but at $1.20 Id rather be a layer than a backer. If her incredible winning run is ever to come to an end, theres reason to think that day might be Saturday.Recommended bet: Black Heart Bart in a boilover at $4.60 with UBET.Caulfield GuineasAn extremely open renewal of this stallion-making Group I, with probably half the 14-strong field holding a winning chance.Sydney-raced colts Impending and Divine Prophet head the market, the former marginally holding sway at $4.40 with UBET. His form earlier this prep around Astern is first class, and he gained a richly deserved win last time in the Stan Fox Stakes (beating Divine Prophet).Team Godolphin is in good form this spring and Impending will be hard to beat; gate 10, however, will require one of the best from James McDonald.Another wholl need luck in running, but another who hails from an in-form stable, is Hey Doc, who was a convincing winner of the Group 2 Stutt Stakes and is three from three since being gelded. Barrier 13 is a blow, though, and hell be ridden back in a race that is often won from the front.Sacred Elixir won the Guineas Prelude (conceding weight) and has an excellent hope if not already wanting further, while a case can be made for Wazzenme at longer odds.Recommended bet: Go the exotics. Box trifecta Nos. 1,2,4,5,9 with UBET.Toorak HandicapThis race looks to be at the mercy of one of Australias most improved and in-form gallopers, Hes Our Rokkii.The former Kiwi has not put a hoof wrong this campaign, winning two from two, tipped by ESPN on both occasions, and he is now unbeaten in his past four starts.Barrier one can be a blessing or a curse in these races, but, last start at Caulfield, Hes Our Rokkii showed racing inside horses was no issue at all, darting through along the rails to win against the bias.Hell peak third-up, will improve again for the step up to 1600 metres, and has won two from three at the track, placing in the other.Class runners Awesome Rock and Tosen Stardom each have an awkward gates to contend with, while last-start Sir Rupert Clark winner Bon Aurum is fancied but yet to prove he is as effective at a mile.Royal Rapture comes into the race in superb form and might give the favourite most to do, but this Group 1 looks Hes Our Rokkiis for the taking.Recommended bet: Take the $4 Hes Our Rokkii with UBET. Likely to start shorter on the day.Thousand GuineasThe usual mix of Sydney and Melbourne form in this Group 1, with all bar two candidates attempting 1600m for the very first time.The two who have raced at a mile -- Global Glamour and Harlow Gold?-- have both won at the trip, the former at Group 1 level in last weeks Flight Stakes.Global Glamour has undeniable form claims but might not get the uncontested lead she enjoys on Saturday, with several go-forward types engaged.In any case, she has been beaten twicce by Foxplay, who again opposes and is a worthy favourite. Cheap Vapormax Plus White. Foxplays win in the Tea Rose, when overcoming traffic, was full of merit and she races as if the mile will suit.Chris Wallers filly should get a charmed passage from barrier five and prove too good.Recommended bet: Foxplay to win at $3.20 with UBET.Spring Champion StakesA very difficult race to get a handle on, but one that most certainly revolves around Yankee Rose.Punters will take one of two views: Yankee Rose is the best horse in the race and is back, or form from the Flight Stakes, where she was runner-up, is questionable and 2000m is a query.Im in the latter camp, largely because the filly is yet again too short in the market, this time a $2.60 chance with UBET.If you fancy Yankee Rose, go for your life. She boasts the best overall form and might win.But out of the Gloaming Stakes, where several of whom were involved in a bunched finish reoppose here, perhaps Swear is the one.Nothing went right for the Team Hawkes colt at Rosehill, but second-up at 1800 metres and in just his third lifetime start, Swear peeled off the quickest last 600 metres to be beaten less than a length. He has more scope than most of these.Recommended bet: In a trappy race, Swear each-way at $5.50 with UBET.Best BetCaulfield Race 9, No.4 Hes Our Rokkii @ $4 with UBETJust wins the Toorak. Just wins.Over the OddsCaulfield Race 2, No.3 Big Memory @ $6 with UBETWon this race in 2014 - and hasnt won another race since. But dont let that deter you. Big Memory retains all of his ability and can win the Herbert Power for a second time. Ignore the geldings last-start failure when kept to 1700 metres second-up from a spell. Restrained off a slow pace, Big Memory was never a chance behind Royal Rapture and instead should be judged on his excellent first-up third to the same horse. Probably the best-weighted horse in the race under 53kg, and the small field suits. Looks worth a bet at $6.Caulfield Race 10, No.4 Hucklebuck @ $8.50 with UBETLooks to have plenty to do dropped to 1100 metres for this second-up assignment, but in fact Hucklebuck has plenty in his favour in the Schillaci Stakes. The 2014 Emirates Stakes winner races best second-up, will relish the return to weight-for-age conditions, will benefit from the likely strong pace, and likes Caulfield. Hucklebuck can finish over the top of them and reward backers at exceptionally good odds.Under the OddsCaulfield Race 4, No.3 Chetwood at $2.50 with UBETNot entirely comfortable opposing a Godolphin favourite, but Chetwood simply must be taken on at the price. Unbeaten in three starts this prep (hence the short quote), but meets a very good field here and will not get his own way in front. Toss in the rise in weight, the awkward barrier and the fact this is his first go left-handed, and the conclusion is to bet around the favourite.Lay of the DayRandwick Race 8, No.8 Extensible @ $3.30 with UBETNothing at all wrong with this mares form, having won twice and placed the other three times in five runs since a spell. But the Group 3 Angst Stakes is a significant step up from the Benchmark company shes been keeping, while barrier 12 is a serious impediment for a horse which likes to race on or near the speed. Extensible meets a good field of females here and is no value at all. If you must back her, wait until post time; shes sure to lengthen.Multi of the WeekendCaulfield Race 4, No.10 Rageese - PLACE @ $1.80 with UBETCaulfield Race 8, No.2 Impending - PLACE @ $1.85 with UBETCaulfield Race 9, No.4 Hes Our Rokkii - PLACE @ $1.75 with UBETCaulfield Race 10, No.4 Hucklebuck - PLACE @ $2.80 with UBETMulti price: $16.31 with UBET Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '

Irelands reigning world lightweight champion, looking for a sixth successive title, was rarely troubled by her Mexican opponent in claiming three 40-36 verdicts on the judges cards.Victory was enough to see Taylor through to the last four, with all semi-finalists in Kazakhstan guaranteed a place in the field for the Olympics in Rio later this summer. Taylor would have expected to take on Azerbaijans Yana Alekseevna in the semis, looking for revenge after being beaten by her in the European qualifiers last month - a defeat that ended Taylors five-year winning streakBut Alekseevna was surprisingly beaten by French fighter Estelle Mossely -  beaten by Taylor in the European Games final last June - by a unanimous points decisionTaylor said on Twitter: Honoured to be representing Ireland in another Olympics. It really is a dream come true. The support from everyone has been incredible!Her team-mate Kelly Harrington also moved into the semi-finals with a similarly one-sided points win over home favourite Zarina Tsoloyeva.Harrington is guaranteed a bronze medal in the 64kg category, but the Dublin boxer cannot celebrate Olympic qualification as her weight category is not part of the Olympic Games tournament.Welterweight Grainne Walsh was unable to make it through her quarter-final bout as she fell to Kazakh fighter Valentina Khalzova.Walsh suffered a nasty cut in the second round, meaning the fight was stopped, and with Khalzova having won the first round she was given the verdict.

We have played some tough games. Those guys have had our number. Theyre a tough team. They have played well against us, but we are going to keep playing hard.Pujols homered into the Crawford Boxes in left field, helping Los Angeles move to 2-11 against the Astros this season.Obviously, you want to take the lead right away, especially when those guys have been playing pretty well against us this year, Pujols said. It was one of those things that I got a good pitch to hit and got a good swing. Nolasco did a heck of a job throwing seven innings. It is not easy to pitch against those guys over there. They have a heck of a lineup.Nolasco (7-14) gave up five singles and struck out five.I was spinning the ball pretty good, Nolasco said. I thought I was feeling the strike zone for the most part. I was challenging with fastballs when I had to. I was pitching off some good breaking balls to keep them off balanced.He did not allow a baserunner past second. Nolasco had a second straight scoreless start after throwing six shutout innings Saturday against Toronto. He has had scoreless outings in three of his last five starts.I feel like I have been throwing the ball well all yeear, just putting it all together now, Nolasco said. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raiders-Obi-Melifonwu-Draft-Jersey/.

Hes symptom free, but we are going to obviously be very conservative where his treatment is now to make sure that this doesnt re-occur or turn into anything bigger, Scioscia said. Right now he feels great.PUJOLS MOVING UP THE CHARTSPujols two RBI broke a tie with Frank Robinson for 20th on the career list. His 116 RBI this season are his most since driving in 118 in 2010. The home run was Pujols 53rd against the Astros.UP NEXTAngels: RHP Alex Meyer (1-3, 5.63) will make his fifth start of the season and fourth for the Angels on Friday.
