NEW YORK -- Macagone did his daddy proud Saturday, pulling a 34-1 upset in the $150,000 Artie Schiller Stakes on the turf at Aqueduct. Richard Jarvis Jersey .A 5-year-old gelded son of Artie Schiller, winner of the 2005 Breeders Cup Mile, Macagone beat Blacktype by three-quarters of a length for his seventh win and second stakes victory in 23 starts.Fourth in the early stages, Macagone emerged with the lead in midstretch and dug in determinedly with Kendrick Carmouche aboard for Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott.I fell into the right spot, got a real run and angled out at the top of the lane and he excelled from there and held on, Carmouche said.Carmouche was a late substitute for Chris DeCarlo, who was involved in a spill earlier on the card. DeCarlo was taken to a hospital for observation and missed his remaining mounts.The time was 1:36.66 for the mile.Macagone paid $70, $27 and $14.80.Blacktype returned $5.90 and $3.90 and Night Prowler paid $6.20 to show.

Calgary scored on the first shift, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice as the Flames cruised to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. WASHINGTON -- The Phoenix Suns and Washington Wizards have suffered surprising losses in recent games. Then again, the way theyre racking up setbacks, the shock is starting to wear off.The Suns (4-10) fell to the 76ers 120-105 Saturday night in a start-to-finish beat-down against a Philadelphia team that entered the week with one win. Now the 76ers are up to three victories as they downed the Wizards 109-102 on Wednesday.The Suns and Wizards meet Monday night at 7:00 p.m.Washington (3-9) rebounded with a victory Thursday over the New York Knicks, but momentum quickly faded. The Wizards lost 114-111 to the Heat Saturday night against a Miami team that entered 28th in the NBA in scoring.Eric Bledsoe scored 27 points against Philadelphia as Phoenix fell to 1/3 on its current six-game road trip. 76ers rookie center Joel Embiid set a career-high 26 points.You give any team confidence at home and they can get rolling, Suns coach Earl Watson said. They have a lot of confidence here. Their crowd was energetic and Embiid in limited minutes was more than effective.Its unclear what the Suns will receive from second-year guard and leading scorer Devin Booker for the remainder of this stretch because of a sprained left ankle. The perimeter threat averages 19.2 points, but had only 10 Saturday.He struggled, Watson said of Booker. He gave all he had. He knew he wanted to play because we didnt have T.J. He sacrificed his body. Thats just thhe type of person he is. Calvin Ridley Jersey. You could see he could barely move.The Suns were without forward T.J. Warren (illness) and C Tyson Chandler (personal reasons) in Philadelphia.Miami attacked Washington off the dribble, dominated the boards 48-38 and sank 13 of 27 from beyond the 3-point arc. The Wizards faded in the second half, trailing by 17 points midway through the fourth quarter before an unsuccessful rally.Were getting beat off the dribble, (allowing) offensive rebounds and were not guarding the 3-point line, Wizards coach Scott Brooks lamented. We have to get better at playing defense. Thats the bottom line.Guards John Wall and Bradley Beal each set season-highs with 34 points, but the Heat set a season-best scoring total.They got wide open 3s, Wall said after the middle contest of a three-game homestand. They had some guys that usually dont make shots that made shots because they were basically workout shots. There was nobody there to contest them.Another defensive challenge comes against the Suns, who average 108.4 points, sixth in the NBA.Markieff Morris left in the second quarter with a sprained ankle and did not return, though was walking without an issue in the postgame locker room. Traded from Phoenix to Washington last February, Morris is hopeful to face his former team Monday.

Wayne Bennett says he doesnt have a problem with Mal Meninga, but he appears to have a major beef with the way the Australian Rugby League Commission decided on the new Kangaroos coach. Custom Florida Panthers Jerseys .Not that he would elaborate further.The seven-time premiership coach has tried to clear the air after a tumultuous tenure as England coach ahead of Sundays must-win Four Nations clash against Meningas Australia in London.Bennett again bristled at critics claiming he did not promote the game, but claimed he had had peace talks with Meninga after the Roos coachs controversial News Corp column.Meninga accused Bennett of undermining him and refusing to move on after missing out on the Kangaroos job.Bennett claimed he was still friends with Meninga after a Wednesday chat but still seemed miffed with how the Roos job was appointed.In the end with the Roos job where I was at a different place was the process they went through in the end, Bennett told Fox Sports TV.Which I thought was, I have to be careful what type of word I use, anyway when that was over I moved on.It (Kangaroos process) is a story worth telling one day but I am not going to tell it today.Asked if he had undermined Meninga, Bennett said: No.Asked if he respected Meninga, Bennett replied: I always have.Ive got quite a good relationship with Mal, I spent some time with him yesterday (Wednesday) - its all good.Pressed, Bennett said: I am not going further with the conversation here - its not me or Mal.I have always been friends with him, nothings changed from my point of view.Bennett also took another swing at critics claiming he did not promote the game in England.Bennetts abrupt, monosyllabic sideline interviews have earned the ire of the UK press, with the likes of TV expert and former Wales boss Iestyn Harris accusing the 65-year-old of being disrespectful.He defended his stance during a mid-week team press conference but elaborated further ahead of Englands crunch clash.I am just Wayne. I have been getting that criticism for some 38 years now, he said.Im over here, five weeks away from my home ... I dont know how they work out that Im not promoting the game.I mean the critics are sitting at home in the lounge rooms in Australia drinking their wine and Im out here at the coal face getting the job done.

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia -- Kenenisa Bekele wont compete at next months Olympics, perhaps the distance running greats last chance at the Games, after he was left off Ethiopias final team for failing to meet the countrys qualifying criteria in both the marathon and the 10,000 meters. Oskar Sundqvist Jersey .The world-record holder in the 5,000 and 10,000, Bekele had appealed his exclusion in the marathon, but the Ethiopian Athletics Federation released its final list for the Rio de Janeiro Games over the weekend, confirming Bekeles absence.Bekele was first denied a place in the marathon when the federation said he hadnt run enough big races over the past year to meet the selection criteria, which have been criticized by Bekele.He then made a late attempt to get on the team in the 10,000. Bekele failed to finish the race at a trials event in Hengelo, Netherlands, last month.Almaz Ayana, Ethiopias rising star, was selected to run in the womens 5,000 and 10,000 in Rio. She will come up against compatriot and two-time Olympic champion Tirunesh Dibaba in the 10,000. Dibaba was named as a reserve for the 5,000, an event in which she is a former Olympic champion, two-time world champion and the world-record holder.Ayana, 24, is the current world champion in the 5,000 and ran the second-fastest time in history over the distance last month in Rome, missing Dibabas record by a little over a second.Ethiopias other strong medal contender is Tiruneshs sister, Genzebe Dibaba, the world champion and world-record holder in the 1,500. Former world champion Mohammed Aman is Ethiopias lone hope in the mens 800.Bekele didnt even make it as a reserve for the marathon or the 10,000, meaning that at the age of 34, the four-time Olympic and five-time world champion could be unlikely to compete at a future Games.He had targeted the marathon as his next challenge, but an injury prevented him competing last year and limited his preparations. Still, he finished third at the London Marathon in April after a long layoff and won the 10K Great Manchester Run in Britain in May. Ivan Barbashev Jersey .

MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. New Zealand 271 and 0 for 0 lead Pakistan 216 (Azam 90*, Sarfraz 41, Southee 6-80, Wagner 3-59) by 55 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsA six-wicket haul from Tim Southee secured a 55-run lead for New Zealand and left Babar Azam stranded ten short of a maiden Test hundred on a damp third day at Seddon Park. Rain allowed only 38.1 overs of play. A brief shower forced lunch eight minutes early, and only six balls were possible in the second session. Pakistans innings ended 5.2 overs into the third session, after which the New Zealand openers came out and faced one ball before it rained again.Pakistan were 76 for 5 at the start of the days play, and trailed New Zealand by 195. That they narrowed their deficit to 55 was down largely to two partnerships featuring Azam: 74 for the sixth wicket with Sarfraz Ahmed, and 67 for the seventh with Sohail Khan. New Zealand then struck back, taking the last four wickets for only 24 runs.Azam had feasted on some wayward New Zealand bowling on the second evening, picking up a number of boundaries with the cut and the flick. The seamers were a lot more disciplined against him on the third morning, largely sticking to a fourth-stump line and seldom wavering from a good length. Azam fought discipline with discipline, showing excellent defensive technique and looking entirely unaffected when his partners outscored him. He looked to play in the V as much as possible, and two of his five fours on the day came in that region, glorious drives down the ground off Wagner. The morning began with Sarfraz going after the bowling by pulling, cutting, and jumping out of his crease to put the fast bowlers off their length. He hit six fours in two successive overs from Southee, who was unable to find either the seam movement or the length that helped him run through Pakistans top order on day two and offered up a number of short balls. Just as he entered the 40ss and raised hopes of a similar innings to his match-turning 96 against Sri Lanka in Galle last year, he steered Neil Wagner straight to second slip, where Jeet Raval clung onto an excellent reflex catch. Jake Allen Jersey. Sohail, whose second-innings 40 in Christchurch earned him a promotion to No. 8, took over Sarfrazs role at the crease. Wagner, looking to test him with the short ball from both sides of the wicket, ended up leaking runs as Sohail took him on with the pull and the hook. Twice in succession, Sohail sent the ball soaring over the fielder at long leg, and once he bisected long leg and deep square leg.The seventh-wicket pair took Pakistan into the 190s before Southee, returning for his second spell of the day, found some outswing to break the partnership, first beating and then kissing Sohails outside edge. Then, in the next over, Colin de Grandhomme had Wahab Riaz lbw, his front pad going too far across the stumps and coming in the way of his bats downswing.The final session began with Pakistan 201 for 8, with Azam batting on 81. Southee bowled a leg-stump half-volley which Azam put away to the boundary, but produced a beauty in his next over, the extra bounce forcing Mohammad Amir to lob a catch to second slip off the glove.In came Imran Khan, playing his eighth Test and yet to score a run in the format. He got off the mark off his second ball, dabbing Southee for a couple towards third man, and Azam moved to 90 with a rasping square-cut off Matt Henry in the next over. That, though, would remain his last scoring stroke, as Southee, peppering Imran with the short ball, forced the No. 11 to tickle one off his ribs and offer BJ Watling a catch down the leg side.Southees 6 for 80 was his first five-wicket haul at home since his debut Test in 2008.

The in-person hearing means Torres could be suspended for five or more games. Stoll did not return to the game for the third period after being hit in the head by Torres late in the second period and Kings head coach Darryl Sutter said they "werent resting" him. Torres was assessed a minor penalty for charging on the play. Sutter hinted that Stoll may not return to the lineup anytime soon, saying "you play seven games in 12 days, so thats tough. Authentic Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys. " "Clean hit. Not even a charging penalty, in my opinion," said Sharks head coach Todd McLellan after the game. Torres has been suspended three times over his career, including 21 games during last seasons playoffs for an illegal hit on Marian Hossa of the Chicago Blackhawks. He was also suspended two games for charging last season and four games for an elbow to the head in 2010-11. Brad Richardson is the likely replacement for Stoll in Game 2 on Thursday.

MANCHESTER, England -- Jorge Linares enjoyed another trip to Britain after reaffirming his status as the worlds leading lightweight with a unanimous points win over Anthony Crolla on Saturday. Ryan Griffin Jersey .Three-weight world champion Linares was taken 12 rounds for the first time in his career to earn scores of 115-114, 117-111 and 115-113 after a bloody battle at the Manchester Arena.But it was not a convincing win for Linares, who finished strongly in the last three rounds to end Crollas reign in his second WBA world lightweight title defence.It was Linares first fight in nearly a year, and he may have been a bit relieved to hear the scores after being out-worked by Crolla for large parts of the fight. But Linares class, with his sharp counter attacks, earned him the decision.?I hurt my hand in the sixth round and backed off a bit, but I told my corner before the 10th round Im going to close these rounds, and I think thats what got me the victory, Linares said in the ring. I think I hurt him a couple times, but I didnt want to be too aggressive. Anthony Crolla deserves a rematch, so why not do it again. I would come back to Manchester.Last year, the Venezuelan visited Britain to leave Londoner Kevin Mitchells face looking a mess in a 10th-round win, but this time it was closer.It was close. Ive got no complaints, Crolla said. Linares captured Crollas WBA title and also picked up the WBC Diamond and Ring magazine belts. His next opponent is likely to be Montenegros Dejan Zlaticanin (22-0, 15 KOs), who became WBC champion during Linares absence.Linares was stripped of the WBC title due to his inactivity with a fractured right hand that needed surgery, but he showed against Crolla that he is still the man to beat at lightweight.Manchester United fan Crolla did not have a great start to the night after forgetting to bring his gumshield and shorts to the venue. Someone was sent to retrieve the vital items, but there was nothing disorganised about Crollas early work, and he was the more adventurous in the first round with shots to the head.But Linares was dangerous with his body shots from the first round, particularly with the left hand. The 31-year-old looked slick despite his ring absence, and there was little evidence the layoff had badly affected him.Linares landed a vicious, four-punch combination in the third round and also escaped having a point deducted for a low blow after referee Terry OConnor gave him a third warning.Crolla, 29, was better in the fourth round but did well to absorb a thudding to the body in the fifth. Linares was also cut above the left eye in the fifth round, perhaps caused by a slashing right hook from Crolla, and the early snap in his punches was missing.The sixth round was a thriller, one which Crolla seemed to be winning as he increased the pressure against a fading Linares. But Linares rocked Crolla with a big right hook and the Briton found himself in trouble on the ropes, and the bell was a welcome relief.Crolla suffered a cut on the side of his head during a wild sixth round, but it did not concern him too much as he again peppered Linares with head shots in the seventh.The fight had swayed in the Manchester boxers favour, and he was busier than Linares again in the eighth round. Crollas energy levels were better in the second half of the fight, and he began throwing combinations with more confidence in the ninth round.But Linares finished strongly by landing some heavy shots with quick combinations in the 10th round, which proved decisive.The 12th round was a slugfest that ended with both boxers faces smeared in blood, and after this entertaining fight, there could well be a rematch. Vita Vea Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way.

DeAndre Carter Jersey .Sam Bradford was once the first overall pick in the draft, but if the Minnesota Vikings finish with a winning record this season this will be the first time hes experienced that in his professional career.Quality quarterback performance has never been more important in the present-day NFL, but what has also become clear is that success is possible without one of the leagues established elite taking the snaps.Dominant defense, with reigning Super Bowl champion Denver as the prime exhibit, is a must have.Thats primarily why the Texans (3-1) and Vikings (4-0) are winning, and theyre not alone.Philadelphia (rookie Carson Wentz), New England (suspended Tom Brady), Denver (first-time starter Trevor Siemian), St. Louis (career fill-in Case Keenum) and Dallas (rookie Dak Prescott) also have aided less-than-ideal blueprints at quarterback this season with defenses that rank in the top 10 in points allowed.When you look at the Vikings defense, youre looking at a terrific defense, Osweiler said. We know the challenge we have going on the road.The Vikings will face one on Sunday as well. Even without superstar defensive end J.J. Watt, the Texans have been difficult to move the ball against.Theyre very sound. Very rarely does it look like guys are out of place, Bradford said. Theyre just playing really good football on that side right now.Here are some key angles to follow for the game:THE BLAIR WALSH PROJECT: Vikings kicker Blair Walsh ranks 28th in the NFL with a 72.7 percent field goal rate that wouldnt be as concerning if he hadnt had some struggles the past few years and the infamous miss of a 27-yard try at the end of the one-point loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs last season. Coach Mike Zimmer ominously replied not yet when asked this week whether the team would bring in any free agents to compete for the job.In addition to three failed field goals, Walsh has missed two extra points.That may cost us someday, special teams coordinator Mike Priefer said. So were hoping to rectify that situation and help him go out and make all his kicks.BROWNS BACK: The Texans should get a boost by the expected return of veteran left tackle Duane Brown. He missed the first four games this season while recovering from January surgery to repair a torn quadriceps muscle. Theres nobody more eager to have Brown back than Osweiler, who will work with Brown in a game for the first time on Sunday.I dont really foresee any challenges between Duane and myself, Osweiler said. Just all smiles there. Any time you get a player back like Duane, at quarterback theres nothing you can do but smile with that one.CLOWNEYS PROGRESS: Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is finally healthy and contributing for the Texans after failing to make an impact over his first two injury-filled seasons in the league. The first overall pick in the 2014 draft will start his fifth straight game on Sunday, which will be the first time in any of his NFL seasons that hes played that many in a row. Clowneys emergence has been well-timed with the loss of Watt, who had season-ending back surgery last week. Clowney had a sack and two hits on Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota in the previous game, and he has five sacks in his past eight regular-season games.VIKINGS VULNERABILITY: Clowney has played both end spots in Houstons 3-4 scheme since Watt has been out, so both Vikings tackles will need to be prepared to block the 6-foot-5, 270-pound product of South Carolina. T.J. Clemmings has taken over on Bradfords blind side on the left, with Matt Kalil likely out for the season following hip surgery. On the right side, Andre Smith left the previous game with an injury to his right arm. Jeremiah Sirles stepped in and will play again if Smith doesnt.Minnesotas offensive line has had its trouble, with only center Joe Berger the only starter in the same place as last season and the running game lagging at the bottom of the league with only 64.3 yards per game, but Bradfords quick release has helped with the pass protection. He wasnt sacked in the previous game.RARE VISIT: The Vikings have won all three matchups with the Texans, who entered the NFL in 2002 and have made only one prior regular-season visit to Minnesota. The Vikings beat Houston 28-21 at the Metrodome in 2008, behind three touchdown passes by Gus Frerotte and an end zone interception of Texans quarterback Sage Rosenfels.---Online:AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL coverage on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Halapoulivaati Vaitai Jersey .

SOUTH BEND, Ind. Andrew Donnal Jersey . -- Arike Ogunbowale provided the offense and her Notre Dame teammates provided the defense as the Fighting Irish played as the No. 1 team for the first time in 15 years and looked the part in a 107-47 victory over Central Michigan in the first round of the Preseason WNIT on Friday night.Ogunbowale scored a career-high 30 points on 12-of-13 shooting, including making all five 3-point attempts.I think Arike was in a zone tonight -- not on defense -- but offensively it was definitely an outstanding game, especially from the 3-point line, Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said.Ogunbowale, who made only 18 3-pointers as a freshman last season, said she had focused on improving her shot from the outside.Freshman year they sagged off on me a lot so I knew this year they would probably start it. So now they have to play me fair, she said. They have to guard me on the 3 and guard me driving so its harder for them.Central coach Sue Guevara said she was surprised by Ogunbowales outside shooting.Shes really worked on the 3-ball. Because we know thats shes a Mack truck that can get to the basket and pull up. But boy, hitting that 3, she said.The Irish scored the first 15 points, hitting 6-of-7 shots while the Chippewas were 0-of-4 with two turnovers and no rebounds. The Irish made 76 percent of their shots in the first quarter to open a 35-9 lead. They extended the lead to 56-20 at halftime and 81-28 at the end of the third quarter.Marina Mabrey, who came off the bench because McGraw said she lacked focus before the game, added 17 points for the Irish and Lindsay Allen had 13 points and eight assists. The Irish outscored the Chippewas 46-16 inside and Notre Dames reserves outscored Centrals bench 39-17.Aleah Swary led Central with a career-high 15 points.BIG PICTURECentral Michigan: The Chippewas were overmatched in their first game against a top-ranked team even though league coaches picked them to win the Mid-American Conference with four returning starters from last years team that finished 22-11.Notre Dame: The Irish, who won by an average of 29 points against non-conference opponents during the regular season last year, had little trouble in winning their 21st straight season-opener.POLL IMPLICATIONS: The Irish should be able to hang onto their top ranking following a dominant performance.TIP-INS: Notre Dame had 13 made baskets in the first quarter. The Chippewas had 13 shot attempts. ... Central missed its first five free throws. ... Chippewas starter Jewel Cotton had two fouls in the first three minutes and another starter, Presley Hudson, had two in less than five minutes. The Chippewas dropped to 1-5 all-time against the Irish, with the lone 72-69 win coming 33 years ago.SHE SAID IT:We couldnt do anything. Theyre bigger, theyre more physical, they outweigh us, Guevara said. Their guard play was way too much for us. Way too much.INJURIES:The Irish were without standout freshman Jackie Young, who is out indefinitely with an injured right thumb sustained last week in an exhibition game.UP NEXTCentral Michigan: Central has to wait to see who it will face in the second round. The Chippewas will play their home-opener against Oakland on Nov. 22.Notre Dame: The Irish will play another three games at home in the tournament if they keep winning, starting with Fordham on Monday. Quandre Diggs Jersey . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. T.J. Lang Jersey . The deal is pending a physical, assistant general manager Bobby Evans said. Traded from Seattle to Baltimore on Aug. 30, Morse also can play first base and right field to give manager Bruce Bochy some flexibility in writing his lineup. http://www.cheaplionsjerseyssale.com/?tag=ezekiel-ansah-jersey-sale . Boucher previously coached the Tampa Bay Lightning and had a 97-78-20 record over two-plus seasons. He was dismissed by the team last March after the Lightning struggled in the lockout-shortened season with a 13-18-1 record. To fully appreciate Tamika Catchings impact on the U.S. Olympic team in this, her fourth and final appearance in the Summer Games, we need to go back to her first. That was in August 2004 in Athens, Greece, and Catchings had turned 25 the month before.She was just entering a professional athletes peak years. In her third season in the WNBA, she already was one of the top players in the league and the face of the Indiana Fever.And she was part of a new wave of national team players, which included Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi. Catchings had started for the Americans in the 2002 world championship, and she got the call to do so again in the 2004 Olympics.My biggest role with that team was defense, Catchings recalled. I was trying to bridge the gap between the younger players and the older players, with them passing that torch on to our generation.In Athens, U.S. coach Van Chancellor started Catchings alongside more experienced players Dawn Staley, Sheryl Swoopes, Lisa Leslie and Tina Thompson.To be the fifth Beatle in that group? Taurasi said. She was the only one who could go into that group and hold her own. She kind of represented the younger generation. So when I saw her out there with that group, I thought, Catch is going to be legendary.It also helped inspire Taurasi, who averaged 8.5 points off the bench in the 2004 Olympics, and Bird, who was the point guard understudy to Staley, then playing in her final Olympics.Bird recalls national team scrimmages over the years when her primary concern was whether she and Catchings were on the same side.I just always remember thinking, I hope Tamikas on my team, Bird said. Because we would do drills where you could only score if you got the rebound, or if you get a deflection or have a steal. And in those scenarios, theres nobody you want on your team besides Tamika.Catchings has been a staple of the national team, winning three Olympic gold medals and three world championship golds. Now age 37, she represents the older generation, and will retire from her playing career at the conclusion of this WNBA season. But she has been able to keep this final year of playing in the present tense as much as possible.Ive definitely been able to stay in the moment and not take anything for granted, she said. Im grateful to have this opportunity again and be around all these great players.Its been a dream come true. And this year, it just means a lot more with it being my last time to be able to represent my country from this perspective.Catchings said it wasnt until she was a teenager following the news about the U.S. national teams 1995-96 tour to prepare for the Atlanta Games that she truly understood just how important the Olympics were. In the summer of 1996, when she was a rising senior in high school, Catchings was training in Colorado Springs with USA Basketball for the junior world championship qualifying tournament.After practice was over, they said, Hang tight, guys, weve got a surprise for you all, Catchings said. Brandon Powell Jersey. . Then the door at the end of the gym opened, and Ruthie [Bolton] walked in with everybody else on the Olympic team, and they started singing, Mighty Ruthie! And we were like, Oh my God!It was like the greatest moment. I was like, I want to be them. I want to be on that team someday.Catchings joined the senior national team in 2002. That was her first year in the WNBA. She had sat out 2001 in the league due to a knee injury that had ended her Tennessee collegiate career.As is the case for Bird and Taurasi, Catchings only loss with the Team USA came in the 2006 world championship semifinals. Other than that, it has been an overwhelmingly golden success.The thing that players like Sheryl, Lisa and Dawn left with us is how to represent yourself every day as an American, as an ambassador for ourselves, individually, and our team, Catchings said. People are always watching us, whether its playing in the WNBA, overseas, or working with our respective charities. But theres something especially important about representing the USA team, and how we act on a daily basis. That is about being a professional.Catchings averaged 6.9 points and 5.4 rebounds in the 2004 Olympics. In 2008, she battled injury to be ready for the Beijing Games, and came off the bench to average 6.8 points and 4.4 rebounds.With Catchings, you knew she was going to go through a wall to get the job done, said Anne Donovan, coach of the 2008 Olympic team and a former Olympic player herself. Whether that was a rebound we had to get, a play we needed to run, a screen she had to set, it didnt matter. She was going to do whatever was needed.Her work ethic and her pride in wearing red, white and blue ... Its hard to put it into words, but we all know it. We see it. Catchings is the one whos going to come up with that loose ball or make that play when someone else thinks its impossible.For Catchings, 2012 was the most special year of all in her pro career. She again was a starter for the U.S. Olympic team, averaging 6.1 points and 4.9 rebounds at the London Games. Then she went back to Indiana and led the Fever to the WNBA title.This year, Catchings has been doing a farewell tour in the WNBA, and she also has dealt with a heavy heart in saying goodbye to her beloved college coach, Pat Summitt, who died in June. The court, always her sanctuary, has been that again for Catchings. The chance to create another happy Olympic memory is something that she cherishes.This is her fourth time, and shes still good enough to be a contributor, said USA Basketball coach Geno Auriemma, who also coached Catchings in the 2012 Olympics. When you mention Tamika and say what is she great at? She just plays harder than everybody else. She competes harder. Ive always admired that in her.

Dylan Hartleys suitability to lead the British and Irish Lions has been questioned by Brian ODriscoll as the England captain waits to discover the damage caused to his career by yet another major disciplinary lapse. Mark McGwire Jersey .Hartley will learn in midweek the repercussions of the red card issued by referee Jerome Garces for a swinging arm on Sean OBrien in Northamptons Champions Cup defeat by Leinster at Franklins Gardens on Friday night.The hooker, a second-half replacement, had only been on the pitch for six minutes when he struck OBriens head from behind with his right arm, ending the concussed Ireland flankers evening.It is the third red card of his career and Garces decision was endorsed by Northampton director of rugby Jim Mallinder and captain Tom Wood.An appalling disciplinary record comprising of 54 weeks worth of suspensions for offences including biting, gouging and butting guarantees a bleak outcome when a independent hearing is convened next week - most likely on Wednesday - to impose a sanction.His participation in the early stages of the RBS 6 Nations is now in grave doubt and ODriscoll suggests his credentials to lead the Lions in New Zealand next summer - Hartley was a leading contender for the post - are in ruins.Mindless from Hartley. Lions Captain???! tweeted ODriscoll, who skippered the tourists against the All Blacks 11 years ago.Anyone actually questioning the Hartley red card look at his reaction to it. Not a murmur of complaint from him. He knew what was coming.Hartley has led England with distinction this year, presiding over an unblemished run of 13 victories, but a season marred by a lengthy lay-off to heal a back injury now faces another interruption.It is unclear at this stage whether he will be punished for striking or for a dangerous tackle, with the former deemed a less serious offence but still carrying a top end sanction of eight plus weeks.The suspension will surely be extended when his extensive previous misdemeanours are considered and will be delivered against the backdrop of World Rugbys crackdown on dangerous play involving the head and neck.England head coach Eddie Jones, watching from the stands at Franklins Gardens, reacted to the replays by running his left hand down his face and the red card has left him with a headache ahead of the visit of France to Twickenham on February 4. Kendall Graveman Jersey . Hargreaves began his career in 2008 with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and has played with the Edmonton Eskimos and last season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Jose Canseco Jersey . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. http://www.athleticsrookiestore.com/Athletics-Joe-Morgan-Kids-Jersey/ . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. Bob Stoops was a young defensive assistant when he joined new Kansas State head coach Bill Snyders staff way back in 1989.Just winning a game was a big deal then for the Wildcats, who were coming off consecutive winless seasons and decades of mostly losing records.There are now 388 career victories between Snyder, who just won his 200th game last weekend, and Stoops, who has 188 wins in 18 seasons as Oklahomas coach. And they arent the only Big 12 coaches who are the winningest coaches at their schools.Kansas State finishes Snyders 25th regular season Saturday at TCU, where winningest coach Gary Patterson will set the school record with his 202nd game coached while going for his 150th victory.Stoops and the Sooners claim their 10th Big 12 title if they win the Bedlam rivalry game against Oklahoma State and Mike Gundy, the former Cowboys quarterback who with 103 wins is his alma maters winningest coach.Well, first reaction is no, Stoops said, when asked if he initially imagined Snyder winning 200 games at K-State. But, you know, with coach Snyder, yes. Ive spoken a lot about how determined and how successful I thought we would be when we arrived there. ... Hes that good, and hes that determined to get it done, and hes the kind of guy, loyal too, to be there that long.Stoops was part of Snyders first 46 victories at Kansas State, then left for three seasons and two national championships as Floridas defensive coordinator before taking over as Oklahomas coach in 1999 -- and winning a national title there in 2000.More on the Big 12s winningest coaches:BILL SNYDER, Kansas State (1989-2005, 2009-present).Record: 200-105-1.Highlights with Wildcats: After one bowl in K-States first eight decades playing football, went to the Copper Bowl in 1993, Snyders fifth season. That was first of 11 consecutive bowl appearances for K-State, which this year goes to its 19th bowl under the 77-year-old Snyder. K-State won 2003 Big 12 championship game, and shared 2012 league title with Oklahoma. Snyder has 64 wins in last eight seasons since his three-year retirement.Before being head coach: Hayden Frys offensive coordinator from 1979-88 after two seasons on his staff at North Texas.BOB STOOPS, OKLAHOMA (1999-present)Record: 188-48.Highlights with Sooners: Won record nine Big 12 titles, and only team in league history to win three in a row (2006-08). Oklahoma won national championship in 2000, and was national runner-up in 2003, 2004 and 2008 seasons. Only coach in BCS era to win the Rose, Orange, Fiesta and Sugar Bowls. Never missed bowl at Oklahoma. Coaached two Heisman Trophy winners (Jason White and Sam Bradford). Rollie Fingers Jersey. Before being head coach: Grad assistant at Iowa, his alma mater, then assistant there and Kent State before K-State and Florida.GARY PATTERSON, TCU (2000-present)Record: 149-52.Highlights with Horned Frogs: A 13-0 season in 2010, capped by Rose Bowl victory and No. 2 final ranking in AP poll. Part of three consecutive seasons undefeated in Mountain West Conference play before moving to Big 12 in 2012, the year he became schools winningest coach. Shared 2014 Big 12 title with Baylor. Currently tied for most games coached with Dutch Meyer, coach of TCUs only AP national champion team in 1938 led by Heisman winner Davey OBrien.Before being head coach: Grad assistant at K-State, his alma mater, which was pre-Snyder. Coaching stints at eight other schools. Defensive coordinator at TCU for three seasons before Dennis Franchione left for Alabama.MIKE GUNDY, OKLAHOMA STATE (2005-present)Record: 103-49.Highlights with Cowboys: Won 2011 Big 12 title, and will finish no worse than second for third time in four years this season. Have been AP Top 10 team seven of last nine seasons. Team this season will go to 11th consecutive bowl game, longest streak in school history.Before being head coach: Starting QB for 3 1/2 seasons at Oklahoma State. Was Cowboys assistant from 1990-95, then left for a season at Baylor and four at Maryland before returning to Stillwater in 2001.NOT MANY LIKE THEMThe only active coaches from Power Five conference teams outside that Big 12 quartet who are their schools winningest coaches are Northwesterns Pat Fitzgerald (76 wins) and Louisvilles Bobby Petrino (67). For the record, Nick Sabans 117 wins in 10 seasons at Alabama are still 115 shy of Bear Bryant.LONG TENURESSnyder, Stoops and Patterson are 1-2-3 among active FBS coaches for wins at their current schools, with Iowas Kirk Ferentz (135) and Saban the only non-Big 12 coaches with more than Gundy, who in his 12th season is tied with Utahs Kyle Whittingham.The average tenure for the current Big 12 coaches is 5.75 years, and that includes Tom Herman being at Texas less than a week since Charlie Strong was fired. The average coaching tenure in all the other Power Five leagues and Notre Dame is less than five years, with only eight of those 55 coaches having reached 10 seasons.---More AP college football at www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
