Joe Montana Jersey.com) - The New York Jets have named Mike Maccagnan their new general manager.Former England skipper Ray Wilkins has told Sky Sports News HQ he does not expect Ronald Koeman to leave Southampton for Everton this summer. The ex-Chelsea and Manchester United star believes the new contracts handed to three Saints players in recent days may be a tell-tale sign that their Dutch manager is also staying on the south coast.Koeman is being linked to the vacant seat at Everton, who sacked Roberto Martinez on Thursday following their dismal end to the Premier League season. However, the news that Fraser Forster, James Ward-Prowse and Virgil van Dijk are remaining at St Marys may be down to a guarantee that Koeman will still be Southampton boss next season.Goalkeeper Forster has signed a new five-year deal, while midfielder Ward-Prowse and defender van Dijk are staying for six more seasons.Wilkins said: Forster is an England international, and young Ward-Prowse has done well for the under 21s. He may be looking for a bigger fish, and thats no disrespect to Everton or their supporters. Ray Wilkins Would they have sought guarantees from Koeman that he was going to remain there before signing their contracts?Both have improved under him and, in the modern day game, they may have wanted assurances he was staying.And Wilkins believes Koeman may not view Everton as being a step up from Southampton, bearing in mind that the Toffees trail Saints by 16 points going into the final weekend of the season.He added: I think Southampton are the bigger club. He may be looking for a bigger fish, and thats no disrespect to Everton or their supporters. Ray Wilkins believes Southampton boss Ronald Koeman will stay at the club this summer despite reports linking him with Everton.dddddddddddd Hes done a magnificent job. When he went there (in June 2014) they had just sold about five players - three went to Liverpool - and he has had to rebuild all over again.He sells players but brings in top quality players who are accustomed to our league. I think hes ready for a go at the top four.Wilkins thinks the demise of Martinez maybe down to the teams failures when their opponents have possession.He went on: What Ive seen of Everton the last couple of years, with the ball they are exceptional, reaching two cup semi-finals this year, so its not all bad.With the ball good but without it not so good - or not as good as it should be. I think that has been their major failing.Its all about winning, and when you lose eight games at home, thats not good enough if youre a top club.

MANCHESTER, England -- Reeling from arguably the most humiliating loss in the clubs illustrious history, the prospect of Manchester United being European champions by 2017 seems far-fetched. Yet that is the target new manager Louis van Gaal has set the team as part of an ambitious three-year plan. "I hope we are in the top four this season -- it suits a club like Man United," Van Gaal said Friday, "and then maybe the next step is to be (English) champions and then the next step is to be the winners of the Champions League." Those comments could invite ridicule considering how United performed last season under David Moyes and started this season under Van Gaal. After earning just one point from Premier League matches against Swansea and Sunderland, United lost 4-0 to third-tier MK Dons in the second round of the League Cup on Tuesday. Suddenly, the World Cup in Brazil -- where Van Gaal led the Netherlands to the semifinals last month -- seems a dim and distant memory. But Van Gaal is used to making bad starts at club level. Van Gaals Barcelona was 10th after 14 games of the 1998-99 season but still won the league. In 2009, Bayern Munich was seventh after 13 matches under the Dutchman but ended the season as champions. "When I started with the Dutch national team (in 2012), no one believed we could qualify (for the World Cup)," Van Gaal added. "After that, they said we wouldnt have any chance to get through the group stage, and after that (they said) well lose against every opponent." Given Uniteds start to the season and the squad depth of Premier League rivals Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool, finishing in the top four would be some achievement. A first win of the campaign would do wonders for confidence and United is hoping that comes Saturday at Burnley, where Argentina midfielder Angel Di Maria is in contention to make his debut after sealing his move from Real Madrid for 59.7 million pounds ($99 million). "I think he is ready to play," said Van Gaal, who is without 10 players because of injury. It wont be Van Gaals first trip to Turf Moor. In 1992, he was there as coach of Ajax for a friendly that the Dutch club -- then UEFA Cup champion -- won 1-0 in front of a crowd of 10,746. "Yes, I was there!" Van Gaal said after a moments pause. "We won. I took over there in 1991, we won the UEFA Cup in the first season, in the second year we won the (Dutch) cup, and after the league. "It was a step in the process."

Josh Norman Jersey. - San Diego Padres centre fielder Cameron Maybin is going to be out two to three months after rupturing his left biceps tendon during a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.CHICAGO -- Danny Duffy couldnt help but think about his last start at U.S. Cellular Field. The Kansas City Royals left-hander matched a career high with nine strikeouts and scattered five hits over seven-plus shutout innings in a 9-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. His previous outing in Chicago didnt go well at all. Duffy injured his elbow in the first inning on May 13, 2012. Soon after he had Tommy John surgery and missed about a year. "Ive been waiting to come back here for a long time," Duffy said. "Its just nice to come out and do my job in this city and in this setting." The victory was the sixth straight for the Royals while the White Sox dropped their ninth in 10 games against Kansas City. Royals manager Ned Yost said there was a lot to like about Duffys complete effort. "For four innings he was really efficient, he really kept his pitch count down," Yost said. "He had everything working: his fastball, his breaking ball, had a good changeup and had a really, really good defence behind him." Mike Moustakas homered among his three hits as the Royals won their second straight in this weekend series. The Royals scored five times in the fourth -- four with none out -- to chase Chicago starter Hector Noesi (2-5). Noesi allowed five runs -- two earned -- and eight hits while walking one and striking out four. "To be able to put five runs on the board was big," Yost said. "Weve and a couple of big innings the last week or 10 days. Early in the year we get something going we get one or two out of it. Now that were swinging the bats better were getting four or five." Duffy last struck out nine on June 19, 2011, at St. Louis. Hes now 2-0 against Chicago. Duffy departed in the eighth inning after a leadoff single by Adam Eaton. White Sox designated hitter Paul Konerko spoiled the shutout with a homer off Michael Mariot to open the ninth. Two runs scored in the five-run fourth when third baseman Leury Garcia bobbled Lorenzo Cains grounder for an error.dddddddddddd Moustakas then singled to shallow centre for another run. Alcides Escobars base hit extended his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games and loaded the bases for the second time in the inning. The Royals fourth run came on Nori Aokis double-play grounder. Omar Infante lined a two-out single to left, driving in Moustakas for a 5-0 lead. Noesi was chased in favour of right-hander reliever Javy Guerra with two outs in the fourth. "Hector, hes been good for us and hes always given us a chance, but we have to help him out on occasion," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "If were not helping him on defence, its going to make a difference. Thats a recipe to lose a game in a hurry." Moustakas homer in the eighth inning was his sixth of the season. He finished with two RBIs and two runs scored. Eric Hosmer had an RBI double to left to start a three-run ninth. Butlers one-out homer to right made it 9-0. Despite giving up an eighth inning single to Eaton, Duffys shutout was preserved after Eaton was thrown out at home on a throw by Aoki in a play overturned following a review. NOTES: Escobar was in Saturdays lineup despite having cramps and leaving Fridays game after extending his hitting streak to a career-high 11 games with a ninth inning double. .

It has been over two years since Diana Matheson's stunning 92nd minute, Olympic bronze medal winning goal against France at City of Coventry Stadium during the 2012 London Games. The members of the Canadian Women's National soccer team, hosts of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, have covered a lot of ground since seeing their flag rise. With automatic qualification for the World Cup granted to Canada as hosts, they were not forced to play in the CONCACAF tournament that determined the region's other representatives. Instead they have contested a series of international friendlies and participated in other international tournaments. Most recently , the Women's National soccer team capped off a busy 2014 with a victory and a draw against Sweden, two games that showcased both how far the team has come since their Olympic success in London and how far they still have to go before they open the World Cup in Edmonton next year. Were not there yet," said head coach John Herdman. "To win World Cups you have to be able to beat teams by a couple of goals. Germany, on any given day, can score two or three past teams. But thats where weve got to get. We cant be that one-goal wonder team that will only beat you 1-0. So over the next months weve got to keep cracking at that and working on that front five. While Canada also enjoyed victories this year over Finland, Italy and Ireland, perhaps their best result of the year was earned in a 1-1 draw with the United States. They held the world's number one-ranked team scoreless for 77 minutes before conceding. It was during that game that then 18-year-old Toronto native Kadeisha Buchanan, having already displayed her defensive skills keeping American striker Abby Wambach off the scoreboard, tallied her first goal for the Senior National team. The future is bright, said veteran Canadian midfielder Desiree Scott about her teammate Buchanan after the draw with the Americans. "An 18-year-old, going toe-to-toe with some of the best strikers in the world and she scores a goal... Unbelievable performance. TSN Soccer Analyst Jason deVos is also impressed with the skills already shown by the Canadian youngster and thinks she has the capacity to grow into an even more impressive player. "I think she has the potential to go on to become one of the best central defenders in the world in the women's game," said deVos. "She's got everything you look for in a central defender, she's quick, strong, aggressive, good on the ball and she has good natural instincts." Buchanan, who has since turned 19, was identified by Herdman as one of the players that would need to step up when one of the two key injuries Canada has suffered since the Olympics took place. In March of 2014, defender Lauren Sesselmann suffered a cruciate injury to her knee, sidelining her for the remainder of the year. The 31-year-old started all six games for Canada at the Olympics and was one of the standout players in the bronze medal effort. Any time we lose a player it affects us emotionally, said Canadian goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc after Sesselmann was injured. I think what Lauren brought is that aggressiveness, that toughness and she had leadership in her own way." In October the injury bug struck again as Matheson tore her left ACL in a loss against Japan. The veteran of 161 National appearances was hopeful at the time of the injury that she would be ready to participate in the World Cup, citing a previous injury recovery as a timeline. Obviously I want to be in a World Cup, so that's my goal, said Matheson after the injury. I had surgery the November before (the Games) as well, she said. Hopefully I can make a similar comeback. With the tying goal in the second friendly against Sweden, Canadian captain Christine Sinclair continues to produce for the National team and remains the best and most important member of the squad. "She still has the ability to win games on her own," said deVos about Sinclair. "That's something the Canadian players and coaching staff know. They'll need her to be at her best if they are going to go far in the tournament." Another key player to the Canadian Olympic team is 32-year old Melissa Tancredi, who returned to the Canadian lineup for three games this year after taking a break from the team to go back to school. She started in two losses to Japan and came off the bench in the draw against the Americans. With the competitive year now over for Canada, the team will start to focus on tightening up the roster and paring down the players that will eventually become the team that will compete at the World Cup. "When we get to Christmas time, we've got some assessments we want to make about the squad we take in January," said Herdman. "This is a chance for people to get game time under their belt before we begin again next year and it gets more serious." Canada heads into the draw as FIFA's eighth-ranked women's soccer team based on the most recent list (released in September). They were down one spot from the seventh they held in the previous ranking and have fluctuated between the two positions since the London Games. At the 2011 Women's World Cup Canada was drawn into a group with France, Nigeria and host Germany and they failed to win a game, with Sinclair scoring their only goal in an opening game loss to the home side.

So it hurts, but weve learned from those losses and weve learned from what happened yesterday.Victories over the Saints and Carolina would make Atlanta 7-9 and give Smith his third NFC South title in seven seasons.That might be hard to imagine considering how poorly the Falcons have played this year, but their division is one of the weakest in league history.We all understand where were at, Smith said. We know we control our own destiny. It doesnt matter what anyone else does. The first thing we have to do is go down and play very well and win the game in New Orleans.Falcons owner Arthur Blank hasnt said publicly if the coach will return next year, but Smith insists that hes not fretting about job security and is focused solely on helping Atlanta beat the Saints.It wont be easy. Smith is 1-5 at New Orleans, 4-9 in the series.The playoffs start for us right away, running back Steven Jackson said. Its going to be a tough one on the road, but well be ready for it.Smith will need to coach a nearly perfect game and avoid clock management gaffes that allowed Detroit and Cleveland to kick last-second winning field gooals.ddddddddddddAgainst the Steelers, Smith decided to punt from the Atlanta 25 on fourth-and-two late in the fourth quarter. Sending the NFLs most porous defence back on the field turned out to be the wrong move as the Steelers consumed the final 4 minutes, 34 seconds to win 27-20.When you dont win, its not fun, Smith said. Its not fun for the players. Its not fun for the coaches. Its not fun for our fans. Ultimately, theres one guy held accountable for it, and thats the head coach.Quarterback Matt Ryan, who threw an interception against Pittsburgh that cornerback William Gay returned for a 52-yard touchdown, could help Smiths cause by playing a mistake-free game.Ryan has thrown a pick in each of the last four games. It marked the third time this year that hes had an interception returned for a TD.It was just kind of a tough play, Ryan said. I let it go and certainly thats a decision you cant make. I cant do that. It stops there.Notes: Starting CB Robert Alford was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a broken wrist.

LOS ANGELES -- Martin Jones charmed NHL career just keeps getting more surreal with every save, every win and every shutout in his rapidly growing collection. Jones made 24 saves for his third shutout in five games, and the remarkable rookie led the Los Angeles Kings to a 3-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. Dwight King and Jordan Nolan scored during another dominant night for Jones, who became the first goalie in Kings history to begin his career with six consecutive victories. Edmonton is only the latest team that couldnt solve Jones, who has allowed just five goals in his six games. Even Jones seems a bit bewildered by his phenomenal success, but hes trying to stay focused on each frustrated opponent instead of his overall accomplishments. "I want to make sure Im focused and prepared for the games, but also have some fun as well," Jones said. "My job is to work hard in practice and be ready to play when called upon." Dustin Brown added an empty-net goal for the Kings, who have won seven of eight while taking just two regulation losses in 20 games since Nov. 2 (14-2-4). Jones made a handful of stunning saves in another defence-dominated night for the Kings, whose 68 goals allowed are the fewest in the NHL. The 23-year-old undrafted rookie who seemed likely to spend a fourth year in the AHL this winter instead has the NHLs best save percentage (.972) and goals-against average (0.82) while sharing the league lead in shutouts with seven other goalies -- including teammate Ben Scrivens. "These guys have been unbelievable in front of me, the way they pick up sticks and clear the net," Jones said. "They do a great job helping me out." Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 37 shots for the last-place Oilers, who have lost four straight. Bryzgalov almost matched Jones as Los Angeles handily outshot the Oilers, but key defensive breakdowns by his young teammates cost him. "I thought we had the puck in our right skilled players hands to generate chances, and we couldnt score," Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins said. "Usually the problems with our team have been turnovers or some defensive zone lapse, but that just wassnt the case tonight.ddddddddddddquot; The Kings had to go right back to work after sweeping through eastern Canada on a four-game road trip last week, posting convincing victories on every stop of their showcase in Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa. Los Angeles lost Sunday in Chicago before returning to Staples Center for its third game in four nights. "I was impressed with our team tonight because of the tough haul," coach Darryl Sutter said. "Its been a tough stretch of games, tough travel back with teams waiting for us. You score the one goal and then youre fighting the whole night." The Kings got the first periods only goal when Drew Doughty stickhandled through the Edmonton end before finding King for his ninth goal. Jones denied Ryan Smyth and Nail Yakupov up close on unguarded chances in the second period. Jones then stopped Taylor Hall on a clean breakaway early in the third when Hall couldnt get a handle on the puck, and Edmonton didnt register its first shot on goal until midway through the period. "Maybe if a couple of bounces go our way and their goalie isnt as hot as he is, it would be a different game," Hall said. "I thought we showed a lot of really good things. We managed to get out of a tough circumstance a couple of times in the game." Matt Greene made an exceptional play from in front of the Oilers bench, capitalizing on a bad Edmonton change to lob a pass to Nolan for a breakaway goal, his fifth of the season. Edmonton pulled Bryzgalov after Brown took a penalty in the waning minutes, but the Kings weathered the 6-on-4 disadvantage before Brown emerged from the box at exactly the right time to skate in alone for the 400th point of his career. High-scoring right wing Ales Hemsky returned to Edmontons lineup after missing Sundays loss in Anaheim with sore ribs. NOTES: Edmonton D Corey Potter served the first half of his two-game suspension for boarding Anaheims Nick Bonino from behind on Sunday. ... Kings D Willie Mitchell missed his second straight game after getting hit by Chris Neil in Ottawa. Mitchells absence has coincided with Greenes return from a 15-game injury absence.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss was unhappy, too. Weiss addressed the issue in a 15-minute meeting with his pitcher and catcher after the Rockies gave up 14 hits and lost 10-1. De La Rosa lasted only 4 1-3 innings and allowed five runs in his first opening-day start. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It made sense perfect sense that New York Yankees rookie Chase Whitley pushed all the credit toward Brian McCann after earning the first win of his big league career. After all, the veteran catcher not only guided Whitley though a punchless Kansas City lineup, he also drove in three runs with a timely double in the third inning of what turned into a 4-2 victory over the Royals on Friday night. "He told me a game plan before the game and we were able to execute it," Whitley said. "Just follow whatever he has in store because that guy has everything. He does." Brian Roberts also drove in a run for the Yankees, who finally gave their young right-hander some support. Whitley (1-0) had allowed five earned runs in his first four starts, and left two of them with the lead, only for his team to saddle him with a series of no-decisions. Of course, McCann helped take care of that with his bases-loaded double. "Thats a huge hit," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Its a tough at-bat. He fouls off a lot of tough pitches, a change-up, a curveball, a real slow curveball, and he got a ball up in the zone and it turned into a double." Dellin Betances worked around a double by Alcides Escobar in the eighth, and David Robertson retired Salvador Perez with runners on first and second in the ninth to earn his 14th save. Jeremy Guthrie (2-6) wound up with the loss, once again getting very little support. Perez and Lorenzo Cain drove in the Royals runs. "I think I threw the ball all right except for the third inning when I gave up a couple of hits," Guthrie said. "I had McCann down to two strikes and couldnt finish him off. I threw a couple of pitches trying to finish him off and wasnt able to do that." Making their only scheduled visit to Kauffman Stadium, the Yankees won their second straight on the heels of a four-game losing streak. They also established some much-needed confidence as they began a 10-game trip that will take them through Seattle and Oakland. The Royaals figured they were catching a break during the four-game series by missing Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka, who pitched his way to a 2-1 win over the Athletics on Thursday.dddddddddddd Whitley made them wish they were facing the Japanese star. Mixing his fastball with an effective slider and change-up, the former 15th-round draft pick allowed five hits while striking out three without a walk in the longest start of his career. Whitley had never lasted more than five innings in the big leagues. "Yeah, tonights a big night. Were all happy for him," McCann said. "Hes worked really hard to get here, to do this." The Yankees took a 1-0 lead on a single by Roberts in the second inning, and Kansas City promptly answered when Perez followed a double by Alex Gordon with his own RBI single. New York quickly regained the lead in the third. Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner led off with singles, and Guthrie grazed Mark Teixeira on the shoulder to load the bases with one out. Thats when McCann connected for his double to left, giving the Yankees what turned out to be an insurmountable 4-1 lead. Guthrie kept the Royals in the game, retiring his final nine hitters. His weak-hitting offence even got a run back in the fifth when Cain drove in Gordon with a double. Still, it was not enough for Guthrie to avoid his sixth straight losing decision and his 11th consecutive start without a win. In the last five, the veteran right-hander has received a total of three runs of support. "We just couldnt get that big hit to come through," the Royals Billy Butler said. "We were putting some good at-bats together with no results. Those days are kind of frustrating." NOTES: Yankees SS Derek Jeter got the night off. Asked whether he felt he needed it, he replied: "I never feel like I need a day." ... The Royals traded LHP Justin Marks to Oakland for cash considerations. He was designated for assignment Monday. ... New York RHP David Phelps and Royals LHP Danny Duffy are starting Saturday night.

TORONTO - Three weeks ago DeMar DeRozan was happily taking advantage of a flawed partnership with Rudy Gay. The Raptors two leading scorers were never able to co-exist the way they hoped or the team had envisioned, but individually DeRozan was thriving, in the midst of a career season. During his brief tenure, Gays presence meant far more to his team, to DeRozan, than his sub-par production. Despite his poor shot selection and declining percentages, the former Raptors forward consistently topped the oppositions scouting report, drawing the attention of their best defender(s) and making the game a whole lot easier for his emerging sidekick. No longer Robin to Gays Batman, DeRozan has assumed the lead role and is embracing the added responsibility that comes with it. "Lately Ive been trying to do a lot of different things," DeRozan told TSN.ca last week. "Getting my teammates involved, trying to rebound, trying to get steals, do a lot of other things that keep me going that probably before I didnt used to do." "I let my shot [dictate] my game, but now I just trust my teammates. I just try to go out there and do other stuff because I know I can be a decoy with how much of the defence I draw." For all his ability and the consequential attention it would attract, Gay was never willing to be a decoy in Toronto, at least not consistently. He was too prideful, a result of the self-imposed expectations that come with a max salary in the NBA. The moment had to be his, which to him meant the shot had to be his. Opposing defences feasted on that predictability and more often than not DeRozan became the forgotten man. A career 26 per cent three-point shooter, DeRozan was firing the long-ball at a 37 per cent clip in 18 games before Gay was dealt to Sacramento earlier in the month. In his fifth season, DeRozan was averaging career-highs across the board but his growth and maturity has become most evident in the aftermath of the trade. Despite the added responsibility in 10 games since the trade, his shot attempts have not increased (17.9 per game, up from 17.7) and his scoring average has dipped just slightly (20.5 points per game from 21.4). Instead, his assists (4.5 per contest, from 2.7) and rebounding numbers (4.7, from 2.7) have gone up. The ball is moving more than it has in a long time, the team is playing together, winning together and DeRozans fingerprints are all over it. The Raptors are 9-2 when DeRozan registers four or more assists this season. "I understand a lot of teams, mostly all the teams are going to key [in on] me so I use that to my advantage and just try to get my teammates going," he said after matching a career-high with nine assists in the overtime win against Dallas on December 20th. Hes not cowering from the defensive pressure hes facing, hes also not trying to do too much. "[Teams are] showing him a lot of respect, trying to get the ball out of his hands," Dwane Casey said of the 24-year-old guard. "Hes done an excellent job of passing out of it. His scoring average will probably go down a little bit but its going to help someone else." So far, sophomore Terrence Ross has been the primary beneficiary. The Raptors second-year guard, whose playing time has increased by over 10 minutes per game since the trade, is excelling in the starting lineup alongside DeRozan on the wing. Although DeRozans three-point percentage has plummeted without Gay in the lineup - shooting 19 per cent from long distance over the last 10 games - Ross has seen his go from 34 per cent pre-trade to 48 per cent since, setting a new career-high with seven-made triples (on 11 attempts) in Saturdays win over the Knicks. "I think its helped T-Ross," Casey said, "because [teams are] double teaming [DeRozan] and leaving him open." "Im just taking what the defence gives me," added Ross, who is averaging 14.4 points in nine contests as a starter. "DeMar [has been] consistent all year, he can go out and score in different ways and it kind of opens up things for me, Kyle (Lowry), Jonas (Valanciunas) and everybody else." His shots have been reminiscent of those DeRozan got, and made consistently earlier in the campaign, many of them coming from the corner. The corner three is the most efficient shot in basketball and the 21-year-old is perfecting it. Ross ranks 11th in the NBA, knocking down 24 corner threes this season while shooting them at a 49 per cent clip. He leads the association with 16 corner threes made since December 8th, when the Gay trade was consummated, shooting a remarkable 55 per cent from that region. Ross is developing a niche, one that could see him become increasingly valuable to the Raptors attack and its all predicated on the leadership of the teams best player. "Hes just playing with confidence," DeRozan said of Ross, his protégé. "I tell him, dont go out there second guessing yourself. You have the ability to do anything on that court, you jump higher than everybody on that court, youre a great shooter, you could do so much just use it and dont worry about messing up so much. Thats what hes doing." "I know I can score, I can get up shots when I need to but I look at it like, let me use myself to get Terrence an open shot or use myself to free up Kyle or create a shot for somebody else," he continued. "Thats what its all about because I know I draw so much attention, I just use that to my benefit." Kerry Hyder Womens Jersey. -- D.A.

The Iona Gaels face a daunting task, as they hit the road to challenge the second-ranked Kansas Jayhawks tonight. Watch all the action unfold live on TSN2 at 8pm et/5pm pt. Iona is 1-1 on the young season, the team opening with a 73-69 loss at Cleveland State on Nov. 9, but bouncing back with a 76-55 home victory over Wofford a week later. The Gaels are preparing for the rigors of Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play, which for them begins at home against Marist on Dec. 4. Kansas is undefeated after two games, with its initial win coming at home over ULM, 80-63, and its second in a marquee matchup in Chicago against Duke last Tuesday, 94-83. The Jayhawks, who moved into the second spot in this weeks AP poll, have won 64 consecutive home games against non-conference foes, and the team is gearing up for what should be another highly competitive slate of Big 12 Conference bouts. KU begins league play at Oklahoma on Jan. 8, 2014. This game marks only the fourth all-time meeting between Iona and Kansas, with the Jayhawks winning two of the first three, the most recent of which took place in Kansas City back in 1988. Its only been two games, one of which resulted in a loss, but Iona is already establishing itself as a team that can boast some pretty potent scorers. Sean Armand is averaging 18.5 ppg, David Laury 17.0 ppg and Isaiah Williams 13.5 ppg, helping the squad put up 72.5 ppg despite shooting just 41.3 percent from the field. The Gaels defensive effort has been decent, with foes generating just 64 ppg in hitting their shots a mere 38.9 percent of the time. Laury led the team in the first game with 19 points, while Armand was high man in the win over Wofford with 20. In that latter contest, Williams added 19 points, and Laury finished with 15 for a club that struggled in the first half (.290 FG percentage), but turned it on after intermission (.680). Williams and Armand combined for eight 3-pointers. The Gaels easily won the rebounding battle (37-24), and used a 15-7 edge in points from the foul line to put the game away. Kansas has no shortage of talented players who can all but take over a game at the drop of the hat. Most of the spotlight has been turned on freshman sensation Andrew Wiggins, and he hasnt disappointed as he currently leads the team in scoring at 19.0 ppg. Wiggins is coming off a 22-point effort in the win over Duke, and he was also one of the top rebounders as well with eight caroms. Perry Ellis (18.0 ppg) actually paced the Jayhawks in the statement victory, scoring 24 points while also grabbing nine boards, and both Wayne Selden, Jr. (11.5 ppg) and Frank Mason made significant contributions as well, netting 15 points apiece. Kansas made good on 56.1 percent of its field goal attempts, but allowed the Blue Devils to connect on 51.7 percent of their total shots. A 39-24 edge in rebounding, along with a 27-16 advantage in points from the foul line played an integral role in the outcome for coach Bill Selfs club. Yannick Ngakoue Youth Jersey.

New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - New Orleans Saints linebacker Junior Galette was arrested Monday morning on a misdemeanor charge of simple battery involving domestic violence, according to reports. Galette allegedly pushed a woman to the ground while trying to get her to leave his home in Kenner, Louisiana, according to the Times-Picayune. Terrance Banks, Galettes cousin, was also arrested on a simple battery charge. The paper reported the woman had visible injuries when police arrived on the scene. She identified herself as an assistant of Galettes who had been staying with him for about two years. Galette disputed such a relationship with the woman and described her as a dancer. The woman said she requested cab fare, after which an argument ensued. She alleges Galette pushed her twice while trying to get her out of the house. After she fell, she said both men were on her and she couldnt breathe. Galette is accused of picking up the woman to take her out of the house. The woman said she grabbed a knife to defend herself and that Galette began taping her with a cell phone. She discarded the knife and Banks picked her up and put her outside with all of her belongings, she said. When police arrived, the woman was bleeding from her right ear and had scratches on the side of her face. Galette, 26, started 13 games for the Saints this past season and registered a team-high 10 sacks. NFL Jerseys Cheap.

The Giants will play their wild card game on the road and can capture a series victory with a win over the Padres. The Giants posted a 3-1 win on Saturday and broke a 1-1 tie on Brandon Crawfords two-run single in the eighth. We needed it today; hes been swinging the bat as well as anybody, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Crawford. Hes shortened things up and is throwing out quality ABs, one after another. Crawford plated Matt Duffy and Brandon Belt with two out to help San Francisco to its second win in three tries in this series. Duffy and Gary Brown both had two hits in the win. Hunter Strickland recorded the victory in relief and Santiago Casilla tossed the ninth for his 19th save. Former Padre Jake Peavy allowed one run and four hits across five innings in the start for the Giants and was facing San Diego for the first time. Peavy won the 2007 NL Cy Young Award with the Friars. Chris Heston will make his first major league start on the mound for Bochys club Sunday and has appeared in relief twice this season. The rightt-hander went 12-9 with a 3.dddddddddddd8 ERA in 28 starts at Triple-A Fresno this season. Good for this kid, Bochy said. Hes had a good year at Fresno, so well get a better look at him. I know its been awhile since hes had a lot of time on the mound, but hell get the start. The Padres have missed the playoffs in each of the past seven seasons and had won seven of nine games until the recent defeat. Dale Thayer was responsible for the runs in the eighth to take the loss and San Diego starting pitcher Eric Stults pitched well in the no-decision, charged with only a run in seven innings with five strikeouts and no walks. The biggest thing was wanting to find some consistency, Stults said. I picked up my tempo and made a mechanical fix. I tried to keep the mindset that I wanted to finish strong. San Diego will try to finish strong with Robbie Erlin on the hill Sunday and he is 4-4 with a 4.53 earned run average. Erlin is 3-0 in his last six trips to the mound and did not factor in the outcome of a 3-2 loss to Colorado on Tuesday, as he allowed two runs in four innings. Erlin, a left-hander, is winless (0-2) with a 4.50 ERA in three career starts against San Francisco. The Padres are 10-8 against the Giants this season.

HOYLAKE, England -- Tiger Woods was an early arrival to the British Open with hopes of avoiding an early departure. Woods has played only two competitive rounds in the last four months because of back pain that led to surgery. Thats why he chose to get to England a day earlier than usual -- Saturday -- to get acclimated to links golf at Royal Liverpool. Its nothing like he remembers from his two-shot victory in 2006. Hoylake was brown and dusty that year, and the ball was bouncing along at such speed that Woods hit only one driver the entire week. That was on the 16th hole, and the shot wound up on the 17th fairway. He still made birdie. "The golf course is a little bit softer than what it was in 06," Woods said on Tuesday. "Ive played three practice rounds now and have had three different winds. So thats been helpful to be able to see the golf course in different conditions." As an example of the change, Woods pulled out a driver on the par-5 fifth hole with the wind in his face. His tee shot landed in the fairway. That he already has played three practice rounds has been encouraging. Woods missed the cut at Congressional in his return to competition three weeks ago, though he was pleased that he felt no pain from March 31 back surgery. He even has been to the gym twice in the last couple of days. Woods played 12 holes on Saturday and a full 18 on Sunday and Tuesday, taking a break Monday to work out and then go to the practice range. "Its one of the reasons why I came over a little earlier," he said. " I went to Geneva for a day with Rolex, but I came here a day earlier than I normally would to have an extra day in there, as well as possibly taking a day off, if need be. And it worked out." As for his goals? They havent changed. When asked what would be a reasonable result in his first major of the year, Woods replied, "First. "Thats always the case." The back surgery forced him to miss the Masters for the first time, and then the U.S. Open. The last time Woods had this much time off with so little competition before a major was in 2010 when he returned from the chaos in his personal life. He tied for fourth at the Masters. It might help that he at least has won at Royal Liverpool, even if the course has changed dramatically. Woods has changed, too. His victory eight years ago produced more raw emotion than ever for Woods. It was his first major since the death of his father, Earl, two months earlier. He sobbed on the shoulders of his caddie and then his wife. Woods now has a different caddie and he is divorced. "My life has certainly changed a lot since then," Woods said. "That was a very emotional week. As you all know, I pressed pretty hard at Augusta that year, trying to win it, because it was the last time my dad was ever going to see me play a major championship. And then I didnt play well at the (U.S.) Open -- missed the cut there miserably. And then came here and just felt at peace. I really, really played well. On Sunday, I really felt calm out there. "It was surreal at the time. Ive had a few moments like that in majors where Ive felt that way on a Sunday. And that was certainly one of them." The others were at the 1997 Masters, which he won by 12 shots; the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, which he won by 15 shots; and 2000 British Open at St. Andrews, which he won by eight shots to complete the career Grand Slam. Woods has won the career slam twice more since then, running his total to 14 majors by winning the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in 2008 despite not having played in two months because of torn ligaments in his left knee and a double stress fracture in his left leg. He said that victory, with the odds against him, should be a reminder not to count him out. And hes not ruling out his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus and his 18 majors. Woods, who is 38, was asked if he would play well into his 40s and even his early 50s if it meant a chance to break the Nicklaus benchmark. "Hopefully, I have it done by then. But Im really looking forward to that cart," he said, referring to Champions Tour players being allowed to ride in a cart.

Everything had to be just right. "Time to get that first one in," he said. After missing Clevelands first 18 games recovering from broken rib, Giambi was activated from the disabled Monday and was to make his season debut in the opener of a four-game series against the Kansas City Royals. Giambi was batting seventh. Indians manager Terry Francona was thrilled to have him anywhere in his lineup. "Im really glad," Francona said. "He means a lot to what we do. If he wants to hit a homer or two today, thats welcome. But having him back is real good. Hes one of the more special people that weve all been around, so to have him back fighting with us is a good thing." The 43-year-old Giambi is in his second season with the Indians, who werent sure what they were getting when they signed him to a minor league contract before the 2013 season. And although Giambi batted only .183 in 71 games, he provided invaluable leadership in Clevelands clubhouse and produced a few spine-tingling moments, none bigger than a game-ending pinch-homer on Sept. 24 that beat the Chicago White Sox. The win came during a 10-game winning streak that put the Indians in the playoffs for the first time since 2007. "That moment is what keeps me coming back," Giambi said. "You dont forget those. Those are special. What made it great was the time it happened and how hard we worked. And if that game gets away -- ... It was sppecial.dddddddddddd It gave everybody a taste of that finish, to go to the playoffs and be a part of it." With Giambi returning, Francona juggled his lineup, giving backup catcher and cleanup hitter Carlos Santana the night off. Lonnie Chisenhall started at third and batted fourth. Francona noticed Santana lunging at pitches Sunday and thought he could use a mental break. "I thought it would be good for him because hes starting to chase some balls out of the zone," he said. "I thought he was getting a little anxious. Hes always had that volatile swing, and he stays in the zone so well, but yesterday I thought he started chasing. So I thought I would give him a night to kind of take it easy." Giambis return gave Francona another offensive weapon, a needed one for a team thats struggled offensively. "Its a big, powerful lefty bat who can change the score with one swing," Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis said. "He just adds a confidence to the rest of the lineup." Giambi has become something of a big-brother figure to many of the younger Indians. After he finished dressing for batting practice, Giambi walked past Kipnis locker and reminded him that time was running short. "You got three minutes, kid," Giambi yelled to Kipnis, who said his older teammates contributions go way beyond hitting home runs. "People just feed off his positive energy and the experience he has," Kipnis said. "He just makes you feel more comfortable. Youre more relaxed knowing hes on your side. You can go to him with anything." Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '

ROME, Ga. -- The Atlanta Braves are facing the possibility of losing another pitcher for the season after general manager Frank Wren said Saturday that Cory Gearrin has a serious injury to his right elbow. Wren said Braves orthopedist Dr. Xavier Duralde on Friday found "ligament involvement" in Gearrins elbow. Wren said the right-hander will see Dr. James Andrews next week for a second opinion and a "definite diagnosis." Clearly, the Braves have braced for bad news. "I think he has a significant injury," Wren said. It is another blow to a Braves staff that already has lost starting pitchers Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy this spring to their second Tommy John surgeries. "Weve kind of eaten through our depth," Wren said. "It looked like we were in pretty good shape coming into spring training with some guys about to get healthy and all of a sudden the next thing you know were pretty thin." Gearrin was placed on the disabled list on Saturday and left-hander Ryan Buchter was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett. Gearrin, a reliever, left Tuesdays spring training game against Detroit with what was described as an elbow sprain. Wren attempted to address the injuries to Medlen and Beachy by signing Ervin Santana and Aaron Harang this month. Still, the staff will be especially thin for the start of the season as Santana continues to work into form and Mike Minor and Gavin Floyd recover from injuries. Minor, who was scheduled to pitch in an exhibition game against top Braves minor leaguers on Saturday, will open the season on the disabled list as he recovers from a sore shoulder.dddddddddddd Floyd is recovering from surgery in May to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle in his right elbow. The Braves hope Minor and Floyd can join the rotation by late April. Santana is expected to be ready by mid-April. Gearrin was 2-1 with a 3.77 ERA and one save in 37 games with Atlanta in 2013, his first full season in the majors. He was expected to serve in a setup role for closer Craig Kimbrel. The Braves return Luis Avilan, David Carpenter, Anthony Varvaro and Jordan Walden as veteran relievers but now may have more youth than expected in the bullpen. "We always find a way to do it and get over it," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Somebody else will step up. I have the confidence in our club that theyll overcome that." Wren said Gearrins injury forced him to look for more outside help. "We have been watching very closely other moves to see if there was someone who could upgrade us or someone who could help us and we havent seen anyone we felt were better than the pitchers we have," Wren said. The Braves released veteran Freddy Garcia before signing Harang. Wren said the team was not considering re-signing Garcia. Wren said the Braves are not the only team having to adjust to injuries. "When I look around baseball theres a lot of us like this," Wren said. "Its just one of those springs and theres not a lot you can do about it."
