ROSEMONT, Ill. Darryl Strawberry Jersey . -- Villanova worked the ball around until it found an open shot, all night long. Darrun Hilliard and Ryan Arcidiacono led the charge from outside, while JayVaughn Pinkston cleaned up the interior. It was all business for the sixth-ranked Wildcats. Now they can move on to their Big East showdown with Creighton. Hilliard scored 22 points, Pinkston had 14 points and 11 rebounds and Villanova beat DePaul 87-62 on Wednesday for its sixth straight win. The Wildcats made a season-high 15 3-pointers and had five players score in double figures in an efficient tuneup for Sundays game against the 18th-ranked Bluejays. James Bell had 16 points and Arcidiacono finished with 14, including four 3s. "We just want to get better throughout the year and play our best basketball at the end of the year," Hilliard said. Villanova (22-2, 10-1) opened a three-game trip with its eighth consecutive victory against DePaul. The Wildcats, who lost 96-68 to Creighton on Jan. 20, lead the Big East by one game over the idle Bluejays. Hilliard said his team was focused on lowly DePaul, even with the big game coming up this weekend, and coach Jay Wright had faith that the Wildcats would bring the right approach to the matchup with the Blue Demons. "I have great confidence in these guys," Wright said. "Its James Bell, Tony Chennault, Arcidiacono, are the leaders. I just constantly talk to them about just looking at one game at a time and they take care of it. As a coach you always worry about it a little bit but really, with this team, no." Brandon Young had a season-high 27 points for DePaul (10-15, 2-10), which has lost seven in a row. Sandi Marcius added 10 points and seven rebounds. "I didnt think that we played real well tonight but Villanova had everything to do with it," Blue Demons coach Oliver Purnell said. "Theyre playing at a high level. They shot the ball extremely well. " Villanova led 48-31 at halftime and then put it away with a 13-3 run to begin the second half. Daniel Ochefu found Bell for a strong alley-oop dunk and Hilliard made a 3-pointer to make it 61-34 with 16:14 to go, leading to a timeout for DePaul. The Wildcats had impressive ball movement while shooting 55 per cent from the field, including a 15-of-26 performance on 3-point attempts. Hilliard was 5 for 7 from long range and Arcidiacono made each of his four 3-point attempts. "We just like playing with each other," Hilliard said. "Its just a testament to what weve been through and coach Wright coaching us and us listening and just sticking to what we do." It was DePauls first game since the school announced Monday that senior Cleveland Melvin was no longer enrolled at the university. Melvin, who ranks among DePauls career leaders in several categories, including scoring and rebounding, was suspended last month for violating team rules. The Blue Demons are winless in five games since Melvin had 25 points in an 84-74 loss to Xavier on Jan. 20 in his final game with DePaul. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 16.7 points and 6.4 rebounds in 20 games this season. "Sad. Thats a brother that I came in here with my freshman year," Young said. "Since hes gone somebody else has to step up, fill his spot, but every game weve got to focus on our opponent and try to get a win." Villanova began to pull away midway through the first half, scoring 11 straight points to open a 37-22 lead with 5:27 to go. Bell started the run with a 3-pointer and Dylan Ennis closed it out with another 3. It was more of the same for the rest of the half. Chennault had a steal that led to a nice fast-break pass by Hilliard to Pinkston, who ran down the middle of the lane for a soaring dunk that made it 46-27 with 1:14 left. Pinkston was 5 for 7 from the field and 4 for 4 at the line in his second double-double of the season. He had 15 points and 10 rebounds in a 74-67 win at St. Johns on Jan. 11. Gary Carter Jersey . It all paid off Friday night, when the Toronto right-hander earned his first victory since 2008 with an effective and emotional effort at Baltimore. McGowan allowed five hits over 6 1-3 innings, and the Blue Jays used two unearned runs to beat Chris Tillman and the Orioles 2-0. David Wright Jersey . They did take one chance on a free agent-to-be however, and it didnt pay off. Rory Kohlert, selected by the Redblacks in the expansion draft from Winnipeg, has signed as a free agent with the Blue Bombers. DENVER -- This time, the Sacramento Kings enjoyed their trip to Denver. Isaiah Thomas scored 33 points, Rudy Gay had 32 and the Kings used 39 third-quarter points to race past the Nuggets 109-95 on Sunday night. DeMarcus Cousins added 27 points for the Kings, who snapped a nine-game losing streak to the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. It was Sacramentos first win in Denver since a 118-115 victory on April 5, 2008. The Kings have won three of their last four games overall, including both ends of a back-to-back. "The third quarter kind of dictated the game," Thomas said. "We were getting stops and we got out and ran. Thats when were at our best, when were in transition. We were in attack mode. Rudy started it off, DeMarcus got easy buckets and I just got what they gave me. I was making open shots. We played a helluva third quarter." Randy Foye and Evan Fournier each scored 27 points for the slumping Nuggets, who lost for the seventh time in the last eight games. The Nuggets fell to 1-5 without leading scorer Ty Lawson, who missed a sixth game because of a fractured left rib. "We basically controlled the whole first half, did what we wanted to do, and then we came out and gave up 39 points in the third quarter. Thats unacceptable," Foye said after Denver managed just 18 points in the third. "Its tough, man. But weve got to stay together, weve got to keep fighting and keep believing; dont give in. Thats the main thing. Everybody goes through times like this during the season. Its important for us to continue to fight, to keep pushing." Down 58-51 after Foye hit a pair of 3-pointers in the third, the Kings responded with a 21-2 run that put them in front 72-60 with 4:55 left in the period. Gay scored nine points in the decisive stretch, including consecutive three-point plays. Lenny Dykstra Jersey. Cousins hit a couple of jumpers and Thomas twice connected from 3-point range, with Kenneth Farieds mid-range jumper accounting for Denvers only points during Sacramentos surge. "I wouldnt say it was the best quarter we put together all year but it was pretty good," Gay said. "We got back defensively, Fournier was hurting us in the first half, we got out and guarded him. They still hit a couple of tough shots but for the most part we attacked, got to the foul line and found the open man." The Kings carried an 87-70 lead into the fourth quarter. A 3-pointer by Wilson Chandler pulled the Nuggets to 94-84 with 6:41 left, but the Kings scored the next nine points, including another three-point play by Gay. The Nuggets opened a 13-point lead midway through the second quarter. Fournier connected on two 3-pointers and Jan Vesely, making his home debut after being acquired Thursday from Washington, broke through for a pair of dunks. Sacramento pulled to 52-48 at halftime, outscoring the Nuggets 8-1 in the last 2:10 of the second quarter, with Gay driving for a dunk to close the spurt.

American football has taken a step on the road to becoming an Olympic sport. cheap soccer jerseys . The International Federation of American Football (IFAF) received provisional recognition by the International Olympic Committee on Tuesday. The recognition comes seven months after the IOC denied the IFAFs initial request for recognition. NFL Vice President of International Operations Chris Parsons told Fox Sports Alex Marvez in May that he believed IOC recognition would "generate incremental interest" in football worldwide. Marvez points out that the football could one day be seen in the Olympics in a less violent seven-on-seven fashion, similar to Rugby Sevens which will debut as an Olympic sport at Rio 2016. The IFAF was formed in 1998 and currently has 66 countries as members, with the organization headquarters in France.  The NFL has attempted to grow its European following with eight games being played in London since 2007 and three games planned for the 2014 season. Other sports to have received Olympic recognition include chess, auto racing and tug of war.Cheap Aston Villa Jerseys . The judges scored it 49-46, 49-46, 50-45 for Kennedy.

And it was a former TFC player punishing his old club, as Canadian international Dwayne De Rosario led the way with two goals in D.C. Uniteds 3-1 win over the Reds at RFK Stadium on Saturday night. De Rosario scored in the first and 43rd minute, and Hamdi Salihi added a third for D.C. in the second half. Danny Koevermans provided the lone goal on the evening for the Reds. Things started off poorly for Toronto. After a cheaply conceded free kick, D.C. midfielder Branko Boskovic served in a curling ball into the middle of the box that De Rosario headed in past goalkeeper Milos Kocic in the first minute. "Its a lack of concentration," Toronto defender Adrian Cann said of the first goal. "I dont know who was marking (De Rosario) but he slipped off. "Ultimately that shouldnt be the reason that we lost the game. Its a mental battle as well as a physical game. Weve got to go out there have a physical presence out there with every tackle and we didnt do that today." Despite being a goal down on the road, Toronto kept the pressure on, looking to hit back. Ryan Johnson flashed a header well high of Hamids goal, Joao Plata had a free kick sail over the bar as well, and Canadian Julian De Guzman took a shot from distance that went wide. Toronto paid for those missed chances in the 43rd minute when De Rosario struck again. D. cheap world cup jerseys. C. forward Josh Wolff spotted the run of defender Chris Korb down the right flank, and sent in a perfectly driven low cross that De Rosario smashed home. Kocic was able to get a hand on it but couldnt keep it out. The second half started much better than the first did for Toronto FC. The entrance of Koevermans up front gave another threat to the attack to compliment Ryan Johnson. Another chance fell to Johnson in the 62nd minute when he peeled off D.C.s defence and had a free header in front of goal. But he glanced the shot straight into the hands of Hamid. Koevermans gave Toronto a glimpse of hope in the 71st minute, latching onto the end of a De Guzman free kick, redirecting his shot past Hamid to cut the deficit to 2-1. But the hope was extinguished just two minutes later when Hamdi Salihi restored D.C.s two-goal advantage, bundling home an Andy Najar cross. "I dont know it anymore," Koevermans said after the game. "Its so frustrating -- youre back in the game, and one minute later its gone. "Were setting a record that were the worst team in the world, and its painful." The chances were there for Toronto, even after D.C.s third goal on the night, as Johnson poked just wide of the goal with Hamid beaten, and the D.C. keeper tipping over a fierce shot from Reggie Lambe. However, they couldnt get back into the game, and with the loss, fell to 0-9 in MLS play this season. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '
