in pre-game ceremonies.UP NEXTReds: RHP Robert Stephens from xf's blog

No. Ryan Callahan Jersey . 22 Creighton came close to scoring more than 115 points for the first time in more than 30 years Sunday.Curious observers will be interested to see if the Bluejays can crack the 115-point mark Monday night when they face Ole Miss on Monday night in the championship game of the Paradise Jam tournament at St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.Creighton (4-0) set a tournament record for points when it advanced with a 112-94 victory over North Carolina State. It was the most points scored by the school since getting 115 against former Missouri Valley Conference rival Indiana State on Jan. 19, 1985.The outburst was the fifth-highest total in school history and followed a 103-point showing in the opening round against Washington State. In those games, the Bluejays shot 58.3 percent (80 of 137) and made 52.5 percent (21 of 40) of their 3-pointers.Cole Huff scored 20 points Sunday and has 39 points in the tournament, making him a candidate to be named MVP of the event. Huff was one of six Bluejays in double figures Sunday, including leading scorer Marcus Foster.Creighton, with its high-scoring offense is on the verge of winning the schools fourth regular-season tournament title under coach Greg McDermott.Our pace in our transition game really impacts (the opponents) choices to go to the glass, McDermott said. Because if they dont get it, were going to get downhill in a hurry. Thats a credit to our rebounders, our outlet guys. Our wings are doing a great job running the floor.A win on Monday also would give Creighton its fifth 5-0 or better start under McDermott. It would also mark the second time a current Big East Conference school won the tournament.Ole Miss (4-0) has not approached triple digits in the tournament, but its offense has been pretty good through four games. The Rebels advanced to the title game with an 81-68 win over Saint Josephs on Sunday.The Rebels reached at least 80 points for the fourth consecutive time, due in part to the best game of Sebastian Saizs career. Saiz, a senior forward, helped the Rebels improve to 21-8 in regular-season tournaments under coach Andy Kennedy by getting 26 points and 12 rebounds.Leading scorer Deandre Burnett scored 20 points after collecting 41 points with nine 3-pointers in the opening-round, 95-88 overtime win over Oral Roberts.We were giving up a lot of free opportunities in the last game Saiz said. We used the mentality of nothing free tonight. I knew they were going to try to double-team me, but I was ready for it. I knew they werent going to be able to stop me.Before advancing to the title game Sunday, the Rebels needed to rally from a five-point deficit Saturday against the Golden Eagles. And even before reaching St. Thomas, Ole Miss rallied from nine-point deficits against Massachusetts and Tennessee-Martin in its first two games.It just shows how resilient this team is, Burnett said after the win over Oral Roberts. It shows we can battle and be resilient down the stretch. We fix a couple of things, and well be pretty good.If Ole Miss wins, it would be 5-0 for the first time since 2013-14.Monday will be the second meeting between the schools. Ole Miss recorded a 75-68 victory in the semifinals of 2014 Emerald Coast Classic in Florida, the schools last win over a ranked team on a neutral court. Slater Koekkoek Jersey . -- Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL. Tampa Bay Lightning Gear . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. . If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. PITTSBURGH -- Josh Harrison swung at the first pitch with the game on the line and popped out. Yet he refused to second-guess himself.Jose Perazas sacrifice fly snapped a ninth-inning tie and lifted Cincinnati to a 4-3 victory over the Pirates on Friday night, snapping the Reds five-game losing streak and giving them just their third win in 12 games.Andrew McCutchen pulled the Pirates into a tie in the bottom of the eighth with a sacrifice fly off Raisel Iglesias (3-1). Iglesias hit the first two batters in the ninth with pitches but escaped a bases-loaded jam by getting Harrison to pop up and pinch-hitter Adam Frazier to fly out.He threw me a slider and I thought it was a pitch I could drive, Harrison said. I just got under it. If I hit it another half-inch or so on the bat, it could have been a sacrifice fly and we win the game. I wasnt upset about it. It was a hittable pitch and I didnt get the job done.The Pirates lost for the ninth time in 11 games as they continue to fade from the National League wild card race.Eugenio Suarez hit a leadoff single off closer Tony Watson (2-5) in the ninth, advanced to second on Ramon Cabreras sacrifice bunt, took third on Tyler Holts single and scored on Perazas liner to center field.It just shows you that we dont give up, Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips said. We try to win every game. Were in a lot of games, but we just dont finish. But today, we got to finish and it really shows that we have a heart.Joey Votto had three hits for the Reds, Suarez had two and Phillips hit his 10th home run, a leadoff shot in the seventh off Jared Hughes that put Cincinnati ahead 3-2.Gregory Polanco had three hits, including two doubles, for the Pirates.Harrison and Jordy Mercer added two hits each. Harrison extended his hitting streak to nine games with an RBI double in the third that drew the Pirates into a 1-1 tie. He scored on McCutchens sac fly after leading off the eighth with a single.The Pirates left eight runners on base, went 1 for 11 with runners in scoring positon and had two runners picked off by rookie starter Tim Adleman.We had a chance to move runners, score runners from third with less than two outs and we didnt get it done, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. Were having problems scoring runs. I ddont think the execution level matches the talent level right now. J.T. Brown Jersey. Adleman allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings with three walks and no strikeouts. He had two hits, doubling in the third inning and scoring the games first run on Vottos single. He hit an RBI single in the fourth to snap a 1-1 tie.Pirates rookie left-hander Steven Brault remained winless in five career starts, giving up two runs and five hits in five innings while walking two and striking out two.Tonight was best I felt since being up here, Brault said. It wasnt perfect. I made some mistakes to the pitcher, which is inexcusable, but I really felt like myself this time. I was getting ahead of the hitters, finally.TRAINERS ROOMReds: LHP John Lamb, who made 14 starts for Cincinnati earlier this season, was originally supposed to be recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday but has been shut down for year because of a stained flexor mass in his elbow.Pirates: RHP Gerrit Cole (elbow inflammation) threw a 32-pitch bullpen session before the game and said he is ready to be activated from the DL on Monday night and start at Philadelphia.
