#1 he second half before the P von lebaobei123 06.03.2019 02:53

SAN DIEGO -- San Diego State coach Steve Fisher thought about giving Winston Shepard a breather just past the midway mark of the second half in a close game against Air Force. It turns out the last thing the sophomore forward needed was a spot on the bench. Shepard scored 14 of his 16 points in the final 7 minutes, 14 seconds and the No. 5 Aztecs bounced back from their first loss since mid-November to beat Air Force 64-56 on Saturday night. Shepard started his hot streak by keying a 9-0 run with a 3-pointer, a slam dunk following a steal by Xavier Thames and two free throws. After the Falcons closed to 54-50 with 2:28 to go, Shepard converted a three-point play and hit two more free throws to give SDSU some breathing room. "I was having a tough night up to that point," Shepard said. "Honestly, I have to thank my teammates, X Thames, coach Fish; they stuck with me and had encouraging words for me. I just wanted to go out there and continue to help my team." Shepard made seven of nine free throws. "With the style of basketball I play, being able to handle the ball, I find myself in the paint a lot," he said. "I was taught a rule when I was young, when you get to the paint, at worst, you have to get to the free throw line. Not only that, a lot of the time tonight I wasnt handling the ball. My teammates were finding me under the basket. I have to credit my teammates with that and once again Id like to thank them for sticking with me and finding me in spots." Said Fisher: "I thought it was time for him to get a break and he made a 3 and then made a rebound or steal and we rode with him for a while and he performed. He did a nice job. "Winston is a very, very smart basketball player," Fisher added, noting that hes getting better at passing and shooting free throws. "He knows how to and has the ability to get to the rim. Hes a good player. Hes a hard guard. He played the next play. Sometimes all of us, Winston in particular, if youre not careful you worry about what just happened and all of sudden something negative happens on the next trip. Hes much, much better on that front, and thats allowed him to grow." Thames and Dwayne Polee II each scored 13 points for SDSU (22-2, 11-1 Mountain West), which had its 20-game winning streak snapped Tuesday night at Wyoming. It was SDSUs first loss since a 69-60 home defeat to Arizona on Nov. 14. Josh Davis had 10 rebounds. Max Yon scored 20 and Kamryn Williams 12 for Air Force (10-14, 4-9). The Falcons leading scorer, Tre Coggins, was held to nine points, nearly seven below his average. "They were really on him," coach Dave Pilipovich said of the Aztecs play on Coggins. "They were there on the catch and they are so long with their extra length and size that he couldnt create a little space to create an advantage there." Coggins had 29 points in a 79-72 home loss to the Aztecs on Jan. 13. "Trey had an off night, so somebody had to step up," Yon said. "So Kam Williams and I took over the scoring a little bit, but it just wasnt our night. "I think we handled their pressure better this time around, but they are long. We did a good job rebounding. But being in this environment, with them at home, is an advantage for them. But we are right there and can play with anybody with the way we battled." With the game tied at 28 four minutes into the second half, Thames made consecutive 3-pointers and Polee had a tip-in and then a slam dunk on an alley-oop pass from Shepard to give the Aztecs a 38-28 lead. Air Force closed to 44-40 on Yons three-point play and a reverse layup by DeLovell Earls sandwiched around a 3-pointer by SDSUs Aqeel Quinn. Shepard then came on strong for SDSU during a 9-0 run that gave the Aztecs a 53-40 lead with 5:20 left. Shepard had a 3-pointer, a slam dunk after a steal and pass by Thames and two free throws. JJ OBrien had a bank shot. San Diego State led 24-23 at halftime after scoring 12 of the final 18 points. Cheap Vans Shoes Australia Free Shipping .

Vans Shoes For Sale Cheap . -- Canadian mens rugby coach Kieran Crowley has made four changes to his starting roster for Saturdays Pacific Nations Cup clash against the United States.The Kansas City Royals came to San Francisco with one goal in mind: get the series back to Kauffman Stadium. Mission accomplished. Now the Royals will take the field on Saturday with a World Series lead for the first time in team history when they play Game 4 of the Fall Classic against the Giants at AT&T Park. Kansas City grabbed the advantage in the best-of-seven set with a win on Friday, as Kelvin Herrera, Brandon Finnegan, Wade Davis and Greg Holland combined to throw four no-hit innings of relief in a 3-2 win. Run-scoring hits from Alex Gordon and Eric Hosmer in the sixth inning provided the visitors with a 3-0 lead, and the Royals held on after the Giants broke through with two runs against Jeremy Guthrie in the home sixth. Holland closed the door by retiring the side in order to give Kansas City a 2-1 lead, while regaining homefield advantage for the visitors, who are now guaranteed at least one more game in their ballpark. I dont know if theres a better bullpen, because that seventh, eighth and ninth inning, and you get a tough go when youre facing those guys, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. Guthrie (1-0) allowed four hits, while Giants starter Tim Hudson (0-1) was charged with four hits and three runs over 5 2/3 innings. Its a tough one to swallow, Hudson said. They just did the little things to beat us. Now the Giants will turn to righty Ryan Vogelsong, who has been as good as any pitcher in the postseason in recent history. Well, except for the last time he pitched. Vogelsong only lasted three innings of his NLCS start against the St. Louis Cardinals and was roughed up to the tune of four runs and seven hits. Still, the Giants were able to get a win in that one and Vogelsong remained a perfect 3-0 in six postseason starts, but did see his ERA spike to 2.16. He had been the only starting pitcher in MLB history to allow one run or fewer in each of his first five career postseason starts (since 1903). The Giants have won all six of his postseason starts. Its definitely a siituation where you have to be locked into the game and your thoughts need to be on the game, said Vogelsong.dddddddddddd I think the experience factor is just knowing how to deal with the emotions, slowing the game down like you do every game. Each game brings its own emotions. The big thing is just knowing how to curb them. The 37-year-old hurler, though, hasnt actually won since beating Milwaukee back on Aug. 29. There was a thought that the Giants would go with Madison Bumgarner on short rest on Saturday instead of Vogelsong. Its our confidence in the guy we have going tomorrow, Bochy said of staying with Vogelsong. Were keeping things in order because of how well all our starters have thrown. Kansas City, meanwhile, will try to move to the brink of a title behind left- hander Jason Vargas, who has been terrific this postseason for the Royals. Vargas pitched KC into the World Series with a win over Baltimore in the ALCS, as he allowed just a run and two hits in 5 1/3 innings. He had given up two runs and three hits in six innings of his ALDS start versus the Angels. Its been quite a turnaround for Vargas, who gave up 18 runs over his final four regular season starts and lost five of his six decisions. He was a guy that was consistent for us all year, manager Ned Yost said. Struggled a little bit his last three or four starts in September, but, again, a lot of that was mechanical, and hes made the adjustment. The team that has won Game 3 in a World Series that started 1-1 has won four of the last five and 11 of the last 13 Series. However, the team leading 2-1 is just 42-42 in Game 4. This is the ninth time San Francisco has been down 2-1. In those instances, San Francisco has won Game 4 four times, including four of the last five occurrences, and they have gone on to win the series just once (1921 vs. NYY) Kansas City has never been ahead 2-1 in a World Series. These teams actually met in the regular season, as the Royals completed a three-game sweep at Kauffman Stadium. ' ' '
