There is plenty to celebrate for the Minnesota Lynx as the No. Marshawn Lynch Womens Jersey . 1 seed in the WNBA playoffs put a lid on the 2016 regular season.Rest is not in the plans for the Lynx, at least not Saturday. After the regular-season finale, Minnesota will not play again until Sept. 28 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.The challenge in Atlantas up-and-down season has been the play of the Dream supporting cast behind star Angel McCoughtry.Theres one mark left for Minnesota to set -- with a win over the Atlanta Dream on Saturday, the Lynx can set a new franchise record for wins in a season (28). Minnesota routed Atlanta 83-65 in Minneapolis on July 20 and has won six of its last seven games and 12 of 14.With three wins -- by an average margin of four points -- the Dream hold the third spot in the Eastern Conference at 17-16. Atlanta has clinched one of the eight postseason spots and is back in the playoffs for the fourth time in franchise history.The Lynx, with home-court advantage locked up throughout the playoffs and a first-round bye entering the postseason, signed Lindsay Whalen and Seimone Augutus to multi-year extensions earlier this week and momentum is at their backs as the franchise looks to repeat as WNBA champions.Atlanta currently holds the No. 5 seed in the playoffs and would face the Mercury in the first round if the postseason began Saturday. A win Saturday could increase the Dreams chances of grabbing a top four seed and first-round bye. Chicago is one game ahead of Minnesota entering Saturday but plays Seattle on Sunday, the final day of the regular season.The Sky won for the sixth time in eight games on Friday and can lock up the fourth spot by beating the Storm. It will have to do so without leading scorer Elena Delle Donne, who injured her thumb on her shooting hand on Sept. 7 and underwent surgery Tuesday. The reigning MVP has missed the last four games. She is listed as day-to-day.The road hasnt been unkind to the Lynx, who tied a franchise-best mark earlier this week with a 13th road win.The Lynx announced that they will wear a patch on their jerseys to celebrate the life of Jacob Wetterling. The patch will be worn in Saturdays home game against at Atlanta and at all games throughout the semifinals of the playoffs. Eddie Vanderdoes Youth Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla.

RALEIGH, N. Curtis Samuel Youth Jersey .C. -- A scheduled game between the Carolina Hurricanes and Detroit Red Wings was postponed Monday night because of unplayable ice.A Freon leak in the cooling system at PNC Arena was discovered earlier in the day. The issue was fixed, but not in time to restart the game. NHL rules state a game cannot start less than 22 hours before a teams next scheduled contest, and the Red Wings are set to play at Tampa Bay at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday night.Carolina announced a delay on Twitter about 15 minutes before the scheduled start time of 7 p.m., then publicized the postponement around 8:45 p.m.Hurricanes President Don Waddell said a makeup date would probably be decided on Tuesday or Wednesday.Ive seen games cancelled for ice storms and weather, but this is the first one Ive seen because of a seal in the compressors, Carolina general manager Ron Francis said. I dont remember an issue similar to this. Its certainly frustrating.Waddell said the problem was indicated by a computer at about 6 p.m.We had to fix the part that broke and then bring the gas in to fix the Freon, Waddell said. The problem was that the ice temperature got up to about 30 degrees, so once we started chilling it, it was dropping, but at the rate it was dropping, we could not have been comfortable with it until about 9:45. And the safety of the players obviously is first and foremost.Waddell said the normal ice temperature at the start of a game is 18 degrees, but the temperature when the game was postponed was 24.Ive never been a part of something like this, Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. But the No. 1 concern has to be the safety of the players and the referees. It was determined we could not get the ice conditions to where they needed to be in time since were playing tomorrow as well.Added Detroit captain Henrik Zetterberg: Its just one of those things. Well get into Tampa a little earlier and there will be a morning skate instead of the optional. Thats the only difference (for Tuesday).The Hurricanes wrote on their Twitter account that they will post ticket and parking refund information on the team website.It was the first time a hockey game at the arena -- which opened for the 1999-2000 season -- was postponed because of technical issues.Three NHL games were postponed in January because of a massive snowstorm. The Washington Capitals postponed games against the Pittsburgh Penguins and Anaheim Ducks, while the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Islanders also held off on a game in Brooklyn.Game notes Carolina is scheduled to practice at PNC Arena on Wednesday at 11 a.m. ... The Hurricanes have gotten points in nine straight home games (8-0-1). ... Detroit won its first meeting of the season with Carolina 4-2 at home on Oct. 25. ... Carolina won the three-game series with the Red Wings last season, winning twice on the road and losing at home.UP NEXTRed Wings: Visit Tampa Bay on Tuesday night in what will be the opener of a two-game trip.Hurricanes: Visit Buffalo on Thursday night before returning home on Friday against Boston.

TORONTO -- A night after a most deflating defeat, the Colorado Avalanche didnt exactly take out their frustrations on the Toronto Maple Leafs. Dorian Johnson Jersey .No, they just got a stellar effort from their Russian goaltender.Semyon Varlamov made 51 saves, helping Colorado rebound from a miserable loss with a 3-1 victory over the Maple Leafs on Sunday night.The Avs fell 10-1 to Montreal on Saturday, allowing 10 goals in a game for the first time since moving from Quebec for the 1995 season.It was embarrassing, top-line center Nathan MacKinnon said. Hockey Night in Canada, losing 10-1, it was horrible. I think we all wanted to crawl into a hole.The laughable loss didnt exactly spark the Avs, though. The Leafs had 16 of the first 19 shots, hogging the puck in the Colorado zone shift after shift. The Leafs couldnt break through, however, largely due to the efforts of Varlamov. The netminder, who gave up six goals in the loss to Montreal, was stellar in stopping all 21 first-period shots, a season high this year for the Leafs.We needed a bounce back today, Varlamov said. Its always hard to forget the bad games, but were all professional and we have to move on quick and then focus on the next day.Mikko Rantanen, MacKinnon and Blake Comeau scored, helping last-place Colorado get its second win in nine games.It could be a blessing, MacKinnon said of the 10-1 defeat. You never know. It could be a turning point in our season that we need to wake up.Antoine Bibeau made 26 saves in his first NHL start, and Jake Gardiner scored for Toronto.The Leafs, who won 4-1 in Boston on Saturday, are now 0-5-1 in the second half of back-to-backs this season.Notable in the early going for Toronto was Mitch Marners brief drop to the fourth line. Among the leading rookie scorers, the 19-year-old has cooled of late, totaling just three assists (no goals) in nine games before Sunday.He was reunited with usual linemates James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak in the second and added a late assist on Gardiners power-play goal.I think theres been a message going on for a bit, Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. It doesnt go your way all the time, but youve got to work hard every single day.The Avs got on the board first with Rantanens fourth goal this season. Bibeau had trouble with Jarome Iginlas initial one-time attempt on the Colorado power play, and Matt Duchene grabbed the rebound in front before finding Rantanen with a backhand pass. The 20-year-old fired into a largely empty cage, Bibeaus left skate locking with teammate Matt Hunwicks right skate as he scrambled to get over.The 22-year-old was making his first NHL start after a so-so beginning to the American Hockey League season. Superb in October, during which he was named the leagues goalie of the month, Bibeau dropped off and lost his final five starts before being recalled to replace Jhonas Enroth as Frederik Andersens backup.Bibeau had to come up big after the Leafs failed to score on their third power play of the game. The 6-foot-3 netminder shut down a 2-on-1 opportunity between Avalanche forwards John Mitchell and Gabriel Landeskog, then stopped tough guy Cody McLeod during another Colorado rush.The action turned chippy with less than eight minutes left in the second period when Matt Martin dumped Andreas Martinsen along the boards in the Colorado end. Nikita Zadarov, a 6-5, 230-pound defender, took exception to the hit and proceeded to fight with the 6-3, 220-pound Martin.MacKinnon upped the lead to 2-0 in the third. High sticked by Leafs forward Leo Komarov as he came through the neutral zone, MacKinnon blew right past the Toronto defense and beat Bibeau for his eighth goal of the season and third in the last four games.Komarov drew a double-minor for his foul, though the Leafs managed to hold the Avalanche off the board.Torontos power play, which scored only once in the previous five games, finally broke through in the waning minutes of regulation when Gardiner beat Varlamov with a one-time blast. That brought the Leafs to within one, but Comeau iced it with an empty netter just over a minute later.Game notes Overall shot attempts were 99-52 in favor of Toronto.UP NEXTAvalanche: Host the Flyers on Wednesday night.Maple Leafs: Host the Sharks on Tuesday night.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Cappie Pondexter had to fight back tears as Rutgers retired her jersey at halftime of their game against Duke on Thursday night.The former Rutgers basketball star became the third womens player at the school to have that honor, with her No. 25 joining June Olkowski and Sue Wicks in the rafters. Pondexter helped the Scarlet Knights reach the NCAA Tournament regional final her junior season.I was holding back tears, I cant lie about that, Pondexter said. Rutgers doesnt retire jerseys often. To be part of that means a lot, the company Im in. ... Sometimes as an athlete you forget about the hard work you put in. Ive come full circle, hearing all the accolades I accomplished in college.Pondexter averaged 18.3 points in her four years at Rutgers and finished as the schools second-leading scorer. She went on to win two championships with the Phoenix Mercury in the WNBA, who drafted her second in 2006, as well as an Olympic gold medal in 2008.I always tell people my gold medal was my fondest (memory), Pondexter said. This is now. Everybody doesnt have their jersey retired at their school and university.Pondexter alsso had a locker named in her honor in the new practice facility. Haason Reddick Cardinas Jersey. The halftime ceremony began with some of her former teammates bringing Pondexters banner to center court.

From the outside, it may look like the Indiana Hoosiers are rebuilding again. Sean Harlow Falcons Jersey .Three of last seasons top five scorers, including record-breaking point guard Kevin Yogi Ferrell, are gone and the only senior on the roster, forward Collin Hartman, is out indefinitely after knee surgery in September.Inside the newly renovated and renamed Simon Skjdot Assembly Hall, coaches and players see things differently. They believe theres enough talent still around to give the defending Big Ten champions a shot at a second straight conference crown.Everybodys eager to learn, eager to get things right. We want to get things right and compete at a high level, sophomore center Thomas Bryant said. The athleticism has gotten better as well with this team, and everybody is just eager to get out there and play.Certainly, there is work to do.But coach Tom Crean has dealt with far worse. And this time, Crean begins with a stronger foundation.When the 6-foot-10 Bryant bypassed the NBA draft, the Hoosiers were given a talented and energetic inside presence. Sharp-shooting guard James Blackmon Jr. also returns after missing the second half of last season because of knee surgery. Versatile guard Robert Johnson appears ready to fill the leadership void left by Ferrells departure and sophomore forwards OG Anunoby and Juwan Morgan are expected to progress after showing so much promise last season.Plus, the Hoosiers are deep. Guard Josh Newkirk is ready after transferring from Pittsburgh, junior college transfer Freddie McSwain Jr. could be an immediate contributor and the incoming freshmen are lead forwards DeRon Davis and Curtis Jones.Indiana believes that should be enough to finish the job. All they have to do now is prove it.Older teams have a hard time understanding how important it is to communicate with each other. Young teams really have no idea, Crean said. Even though we have some experienced guys, they are now going to have to be those experienced guys in the realm of taking real control of the team.Here are some other things to watch this season:FIND THE POINTIts never easy to replace someone like Ferrell, a four-year starter who played on two Sweet 16 teams and is the Hoosiers career assists leader. And it may take more than one player to do it. Johnson and Newkirk are likely to get the bulk of the early work, but they are different kinds of floor leaders from Ferrell. Expect Crean to do some mixing and matching early in the season to see what he has at that position.INJURIESIn addition to Hartman , Morgan (shoulder surgery) and McSwain (knee surgery) were not cleared to practice when fall workouts began. Johnsons offseason ankle surgery limited his early workouts. Blackmon, meanwhile, insists hes healthy.I dont just feel like Im back, I feel like Im better than I was, he said. And I feel like Ill be able to show that this season.SCHEDULING TOUGHAt Big Ten media day, Crean joked that this seasons non-conference slate was the result of poor scheduling. Kidding aside, the Hoosiers do have a remarkably difficult November and December. They open the season Nov. 11 against Kansas, host North Carolina on Nov. 30 and play Butler (Dec. 17) and Louisville (Dec. 31) in Indianapolis. The good news: Indiana should know how good it really is when league play begins.THE REASSMEBLY LINEAlmost 20 months after construction began on the Hoosiers home court, they will christen the renovated arena Nov. 16 against UMass-Lowell. What can fans expect? A new three-story entryway with a grand staircase, which doubles as a kind of Indiana museum full of iconic mementoes, new seats, repainted floors, more easily accessible concession stands and, of course, the new name.---AP college basketball website: http://collegebasketball.ap.org/ Takkarist McKinley Falcons Jersey .

From the outside, it may look like the Indiana Hoosiers are rebuilding again. Sean Harlow Falcons Jersey .Three of last seasons top five scorers, including record-breaking point guard Kevin Yogi Ferrell, are gone and the only senior on the roster, forward Collin Hartman, is out indefinitely after knee surgery in September.Inside the newly renovated and renamed Simon Skjdot Assembly Hall, coaches and players see things differently. They believe theres enough talent still around to give the defending Big Ten champions a shot at a second straight conference crown.Everybodys eager to learn, eager to get things right. We want to get things right and compete at a high level, sophomore center Thomas Bryant said. The athleticism has gotten better as well with this team, and everybody is just eager to get out there and play.Certainly, there is work to do.But coach Tom Crean has dealt with far worse. And this time, Crean begins with a stronger foundation.When the 6-foot-10 Bryant bypassed the NBA draft, the Hoosiers were given a talented and energetic inside presence. Sharp-shooting guard James Blackmon Jr. also returns after missing the second half of last season because of knee surgery. Versatile guard Robert Johnson appears ready to fill the leadership void left by Ferrells departure and sophomore forwards OG Anunoby and Juwan Morgan are expected to progress after showing so much promise last season.Plus, the Hoosiers are deep. Guard Josh Newkirk is ready after transferring from Pittsburgh, junior college transfer Freddie McSwain Jr. could be an immediate contributor and the incoming freshmen are lead forwards DeRon Davis and Curtis Jones.Indiana believes that should be enough to finish the job. All they have to do now is prove it.Older teams have a hard time understanding how important it is to communicate with each other. Young teams really have no idea, Crean said. Even though we have some experienced guys, they are now going to have to be those experienced guys in the realm of taking real control of the team.Here are some other things to watch this season:FIND THE POINTIts never easy to replace someone like Ferrell, a four-year starter who played on two Sweet 16 teams and is the Hoosiers career assists leader. And it may take more than one player to do it. Johnson and Newkirk are likely to get the bulk of the early work, but they are different kinds of floor leaders from Ferrell. Expect Crean to do some mixing and matching early in the season to see what he has at that position.INJURIESIn addition to Hartman , Morgan (shoulder surgery) and McSwain (knee surgery) were not cleared to practice when fall workouts began. Johnsons offseason ankle surgery limited his early workouts. Blackmon, meanwhile, insists hes healthy.I dont just feel like Im back, I feel like Im better than I was, he said. And I feel like Ill be able to show that this season.SCHEDULING TOUGHAt Big Ten media day, Crean joked that this seasons non-conference slate was the result of poor scheduling. Kidding aside, the Hoosiers do have a remarkably difficult November and December. They open the season Nov. 11 against Kansas, host North Carolina on Nov. 30 and play Butler (Dec. 17) and Louisville (Dec. 31) in Indianapolis. The good news: Indiana should know how good it really is when league play begins.THE REASSMEBLY LINEAlmost 20 months after construction began on the Hoosiers home court, they will christen the renovated arena Nov. 16 against UMass-Lowell. What can fans expect? A new three-story entryway with a grand staircase, which doubles as a kind of Indiana museum full of iconic mementoes, new seats, repainted floors, more easily accessible concession stands and, of course, the new name.---AP college basketball website: http://collegebasketball.ap.org/ Takkarist McKinley Falcons Jersey .

Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. Pujaras minor change against SantnerMitchell Santner got the better of Cheteshwar Pujara in the first innings: the batsmans front-foot stride was non-existent and therefore a little spin from the pitch was enough to beat the outside edge of his bat to hit the off stump. In the second innings, Pujaras front-foot stride became a lot longer. Batting is at its easiest when youre just reacting to the ball but that mustnt overshadow the importance of the adjustments a batsman makes overnight, and how he keeps these things in mind without allowing it to interfere in his natural reaction to the ball.When not to call for a runThe fundamentals of calling while running between the wickets is that the call belongs to the person who has the full view of the direction in which the ball has gone. Largely, its the strikers call whenever the ball is in front of the stumps and its the non-strikers call when the ball goes behind the stumps. Its a little different in reality; a lot depends on knowing your own and your partners speed of running. In addition to that, you must know when your partner is likely to react and when he wont. For example, Gautam Gambhir is someone who drops and runs frequently but he will also fall back if his partner declines a run; players who dont know him take his initial burst as a firm intent for taking a run. M Vijays dismissal today, after his mix-up with Pujara, was another such example of how your right to call an existing run doesnt matter if your partner isnt keen.Heavy lies the headTest cricket is ruthless. Once a problem has been spotted, trust the opposition to keep taargeting the same spot. Josh Jones Womens Jersey. Ever since Tom Latham got out lbw when Mohammed Shami went around the stumps, Indias fast bowlers have tried the same ploy with the new ball. It worked again in the second innings in Indore. The most common observation on his dismissal would be that his front foot went across and therefore the bat had to come across the body, which resulted in missing the line of the ball. But the fact is that the positioning of his head in his batting stance while getting ready to face the ball is getting him in trouble. The moment the head falls towards off, the way its happening currently with Latham, the front foot automatically falls across. Guptill and Williamsons change in tacticsPost the dismissal in the first innings of the Kanpur Test, Martin Guptill has planted his foot a lot straighter and averted the lbw threat. The flip side was that while his foot was going straight, his conditioning didnt allow him to change his judgement of where the off stump was. On a couple of occasions he left the ball outside off without covering the stumps. It happens.The same thing happened with Kane Williamson. To negate the lbw threat against R Ashwin, he started standing on an off-stump guard. Although that would lead to impact outside off, the flip side of this move was that the balls you feel are sliding down the stumps are actually finishing within. Williamson was lbw by Ashwin after being struck in front of middle and leg by a vicious offbreak.
