STANFORD, Calif. -- Reid Travis scored 15 of his 19 points in the first half and Stanford made coach Jerod Haase a winner in his home debut with a 96-69 victory over Cal State Northridge on Tuesday night.Haase, who began his college playing career at Bay Area rival Cal, came to Stanford after four seasons as coach at Alabama-Birmingham. He replaced Johnny Dawkins, who got Stanford to the NCAA Tournament just once in eight seasons.It means everything to give him a win, Travis said, especially all the work weve put in, just building that relationship with him and the coaching staff.Haase called the experience awesome.Had a blast. The thing that continues to stand out in my mind is how much I enjoy coaching these guys, he said. Theyre so willing to learn and do what we ask of them.Travis missed the final 22 games of last season with a stress fracture in his leg but has come out of the blocks fast. He had career highs of 24 points and 17 rebounds in the Cardinals opening win over Harvard on Friday in Shanghai, China.Against CSUN, the 6-foot-8 junior made 6 of 9 shots from the field and converted 7 of 10 free throws, a big improvement from his 10-for-19 effort at the foul line vs. Harvard.Travis also showed the kind of hustle Haase was known for during his playing days at Cal and Kansas when he knocked over a half-dozen seats on the baseline while scrambling for a loose ball.Its definitely what he tries to instill to us, Travis said of the hustle. Toughness is one of our standards. When we get on the court, its full speed ahead.Marcus Sheffield added 17 points, Josh Sharma scored a career-high 15 and Dorian Pickens had 14 for Stanford (2-0).CSUN coach Reggie Theus said 20 turnovers were more than his team could overcome.We did a poor job of handling the double teams early in the game. That really got us ooff in the wrong direction, said Theus, adding that the Matadors defense was sporadic. Andre Dillard Youth Jersey. A lot of times when things are not going well offensively, your defense suffers. Thats the mark of a team still trying to become a good team.Kendall Smith, who grew up an hour away from the Stanford campus, scored 17 points to lead CSUN (1-2).BIG PICTURECSUN: On the heels of an encouraging performance in a 102-87 loss at No. 16 UCLA -- a game that featured 14 lead changes -- the Matadors gave the ball away 20 times and were outscored 28-5 off turnovers.Stanford: The Cardinal made the long trek back from Shanghai, where it opened its season with an 80-70 win over Harvard, and showed little travel hangover. The Cardinal led by as many as 18 points in the first half and was up 31 points with less than 8 minutes left in the game.STAT OF THE NIGHT: Stanford was last in the Pac-12 last season in both 3-point percentage (.320) and 3-pointers made (.172) and was a quiet 1-for-6 from the arc against Harvard in its opener. But the Cardinal made eight of its first 12 shots from 3-point range and finished 9-for-16 against CSUN. Six different players made at least one, led by Sheffield, who was 3 for 4.UP NEXTCSUN returns home to play Saturday against Northern Illinois, which puts its 2-0 record on the line Wednesday against Idaho before heading to California.Stanford continues its three-game, weeklong home stand Thursday against Weber State, which dropped to 1-1 after a 69-68 loss at Pepperdine on Tuesday. Stanford better enjoy the home cooking while it can because it hits the road again for a Thanksgiving week tournament in Orlando, Florida beginning with a matchup vs. Miami on Nov. 24. ' ' '

The England midfielder was speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the Super Sunday showdown at Chelsea - a game he believes could spark an unlikely title push in the remaining weeks of the season.United go into the clash 13 points behind Premier League leaders Leicester, but after beating Stoke 3-0 in midweek, Carrick says the squad is capable of putting a run together to challenge for trophies. He told Super Sunday: Sundays a big game for us, of course it is. If we can go there and get the win, it puts us in a good position.But then we have to go and do it all over again the week after. Its week by week now and we are coming to the time of year where its almost the business end where things are won and lost.We still want to be up there challenging and fighting and giving ourselves every opportunity to still finish on top.Ive been here for a while now and theres been seasons where it hasnt gone so well up until now and you find yourself putting a run together, winning games and you end up having a successful season. Can we win the title? I think we can. I believe we can. Im realistic to understand where we are and the situation. Michael Carrick Thats the focus from now, really. This season almost starts now for us - putting a run together and hopefully ending up with some silverware again.Can we win the title? I think we can. I believe we can. Im realistic to understand where we are and the situation, but as games tick by, if we keep winning then we give ourselves a chance.If we dont keep winning, then the chance falls by the wayside. Its up to us carry on the form weve showed over the last couple of games and build on that. Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal said it is not impossible that Luke Shaw could return from injury before the end of the season. Carrick missed four games in January through injury, but his appearance against Stoke on Tuesday night was the 400th he has made for Manchester United.However, the 34-year-old insisted he has no intention of moving on as he prepares to celebrate a decade at Old Trafford this summer.He added: Its something I can be proud of, to play for this great club for so long and have some success here - but hopefully theres still a lot more to come.Im just trying to enjoy my football. Being injured for the last month has been frustrating. At this time of my career, I just want to be out there with the boys playing games and enjoying my football. As long as I feel fit and feel I can do a job, well see how it goes.Ive been here for so long and said it so many times, its such a great place to come and work every day.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Kyle Busch continued his dominance of the Xfinity Series at Kansas Speedway on Saturday.Elliott Sadler and Daniel Suarez continued their chase for a title.Pulling double-duty this weekend, Busch led 150 of the 200 laps in a thoroughly dominant performance for his ninth series win of the season. It was also his third straight Xfinity win at Kansas, where he won in his Sprint Cup car for the first time this spring.There were a lot of things trying to work against us toward the end, but we just persevered, said Busch, who at one point was a lap down. We had great speed. I think we showed it all weekend. It was just a matter of putting it all together and ending up in victory lane, where we deserved to be.Sadler finished second and Suarez finished third to give the Chase contenders a nice start to the three-race round of eight, which now takes a two-week break before continuing at Texas.Everyone is starting off square, Sadler said, so youre trying to get a point here and get a point there. Now everybody will have different strategies as we go to Texas and Phoenix.Two more Sprint Cup regulars, Joey Logano and Kyle Larson, waged an entertaining duel to round out the top five. But it was some drama around them in the closing laps that shook up the title chase.Justin Allgaier and Darrell Wallace Jr. were involved in a late wreck, though Allgaiers partially destroyed car was able to finish a lap down in 14th. Wallace wound up 33rd and now has a massive deficit to make up the next two races if he wants to avoid elimination.PPretty hard hit. Swell Uk. Just unfortunate, said Wallace, who was blinking away some pain when he took off his helmet. We were making some good calls and running our own race and thats part of it.I think we could have gotten a top-10 if we hit our restarts right, but just not our day.Nor was it Brendan Gaughans day. He went slip-sliding through the grass on the front stretch late in the race and wound up 31st -- though he did provide some comic relief when he sprinted from the infield care center back to his car in an attempt to squeeze a few more laps in before the finish.It wound up having no bearing on his result.Erik Jones also had a gripe after spending most of the day near the front. He was hit from behind by Larson on a late restart, sending him into Ty Dillon and causing enough damage to force a costly pit stop.Jones ended finishing 15th, fifth among the eight drivers competing for a championship.Its all my fault, Larson told his spotter after the impact.Blake Koch finished ninth in a strong start to the round for his championship hopes, while Ryan Reed dealt with a series of problems all afternoon and finished behind Allgaier and Jones in 16th.Now, theyll all be chasing Sadler and Suarez over the next two races.We had a great race. So proud of my team, Sadler said. We kept working on the car, working on the car, getting better and better. I just have to do a better job of out-running that 18 car. ' ' '

I thought that tonight from the bench players, to the players that played 90 minutes, to the coaching staff, and even to the fans we were all connected. Thats a huge step in the right direction for us.Georgia will travel to Clemson on Sunday to face the Tigers at 7 p.m. ' ' '
GENEVA -- FIFA President Gianni Infantino thinks the mostly unloved Club World Cup could expand to a 32-team tournament played in June. Austin Seibert Jersey .Infantino said in interviews published on Friday in Italian and Spanish newspapers that a revamped club competition could start in 2019.A 32-team event played in the last three weeks of June would be more balanced and more attractive to broadcasters and sponsors, Infantino said in comments reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport and El Mundo Deportivo dailies.Infantinos suggestion also follows speculation that China wants to host more international football as part of a wide-ranging plan to invest heavily in the sport.Last year, Chinese retailer Alibaba E-Auto signed as the Club World Cup title sponsor through 2022.The existing seven-team Club World Cup format in December has been seen as vulnerable in a FIFA review of spending and tournament plans since Infantino was elected president in February.The 2015 Club World Cup in Japan earned a little over $20 million in commercial revenue, according to FIFAs most recent financial report. The 2014 edition hosted by Morocco earned $40 million.The latest FIFA tournament expansion plan follows Infantino promoting a 48-team World Cup to start in 2026. That decision could be taken by FIFAs ruling council at a Jan. 9-10 meeting in Zurich.Currently, the Club World Cup is a little-watched event featuring the champions of FIFAs six continental confederations, plus the host nations league winner.Typically, it leads to a final between the champions of Europe and South America. European fans have shown little interest in a competition that also clashes with their domestic leagues.Japan hosts next months edition featuring Real Madrid and Atletico Nacional of Colombia.

R Ashwin completed his 22nd five-for in Test cricket to give India the edge by dismantling a strong England unit for just 255 runs - 200 runs in the deficit - in the second Test being played in Visakhapatnam on Saturday.England had already seceded early advantage by losing five wickets in 49 overs at stumps on the second day and they required Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes to dig deep to reduce the massive first-innings deficit.The duo put on a spirited 110-run display against an attack dominated by spinners on a surface that aided the spinning ball. While Bairstow looked for singles, Stokes hit the frequent boundary, while looking stoic in defense.Ashwin, in his first nine-over spell, didnt show signs of troubling the well-set duo who impressively negotiated Indias ace spinner. Apart from a half-chance for a stumping off Stokes, England looked comfortable through the morning session, until Umesh Yadav struck against the run of play as Bairstow played all around a straight ball from the seamer that rattled the stumps.At lunch, England had posted 191 for 6. Bairstows departure didnt affect Stokes approach as he counterattacked Indias seamers, who had taken the new ball post-lunch. Englands tactics prompted Ashwins recall and he stuck immediately to dismiss the dangerous Stokes lbw. Adil Rashid stubbornly resisted Indias spinners with a solid 73-ball 32, but wickets fell at the other end. Cheap Sweden Jerseys. Ashwin trapped Stuart Broad and James Anderson lbw, of consecutive deliveries to complete yet another five-for. Only three bowlers have taken more five-fors for India, namely Anil Kumble (35 in 132), Harbhajan Singh (25 in 103) and Kapil Dev (23 in 131). Overall, 14 bowlers have taken more five-fors in Tests. Ashwin is level with Waqar Younis, Malcolm Marshall, Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh on 22.Hadnt had a five-wicket haul against England, but it was not at the top of my mind, Ashwin said. I knew I would get it if I stuck to what I do right. The challenges are actually a hassle for the batsmen. Not every ball spins. I was in the middle of very good rhythm. I told Virat I will get Root out caught out at short midwicket. Virat said lets get mid-on up and make him go for a slog sweep. I thought the moment he steps out I was going to go wider. That worked. The last wicket was slow so I changed my action to create more air space. It is not about trials, it is about having the heart to try it in the middle of the game. I am sure I have it.Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane will take the crease on day four, with their side firmly in the drivers seat at 98 for 3 with a 298-run lead. ' ' '

Liverpool legend Phil Thompson believes Jurgen Klopp faces a tough decision over whether to select Mamadou Sakho for Thursdays trip to Borussia Dortmund. Manuel Neuer Jersey . The Reds travel to the Westfalenstadion for their Europa League quarter-final first-leg, with their defence set for a difficult test against the competitions favourites.Klopps men have failed to keep a clean sheet or win any of their last three games, with Sakho facing criticism for his performance in Saturdays 1-1 draw with Tottenham. Martin Skrtel could be the other option for Jurgen Klopp The French centre-back did not make a single tackle and won just 40 per cent of his duels according to Opta, although alternative option Martin Skrtel did not fare much better in his last appearance, coming off the bench at half-time with his side leading 2-0 in a 3-2 defeat to Southampton.Thommo told Sky Sports: Im not really sure what Sakho was doing in the first half against Spurs and he was extremely lucky to go unpunished, which you cant expect to be the case against this Dortmund side.He obviously had a very difficult game and Dejan Lovren did very well to bail him out, but if you leave him out that will wreck his confidence.I would say Skrtel is very much in contention to start in Germany, but its a very big call for Klopp. Mamadou Sakho has been a first-choice pick under Jurgen Klopp Thommo predicts... Find out what Thommo is tipping up for Dortmund v Liverpool at 20/1 here. Thompson, who won three European Cups at centre-back for Liverpool, believes the return of Brazilian Roberto Firmino could be key to their chances of taking a positive scoreline back to Anfield.Im hoping Firmino will be fit as hes probably the most important player with the form hes been in, the Soccer Saturday pundit added.I do think that Liverpool have to score to have a chance of qualifying because youd expect them to find the net, but they need to be clever and not go chasing the game at 1-0 like Tottenham did.Its the toughest game they could have got but if we go through then theyve got a really good chance of winning the competition.

They seek to continue the solid play they showed in July when they host the Washington Mystics on Saturday night in the first game for both teams since the league took a month-long break for the Rio Summer Olympics.Dont let the 12-12 record fool you; the Fever have a track record built in past seasons of pacing themselves early on and playing their best basketball as the calendar turns from summer to fall.Indiana began the 2016 campaign with a 7-11 start but headed to the Olympic break with wins in five of its last six contests.Going into the break, we were exactly where we wanted to be, Fever coach Stephanie White said. We started to really find a rhythm and find a groove. Our chemistry had come together and we were healthy. It was a good time to get a physical break and a mental break and work on the fundamentals.The final stretch of the 2016 season will be the swan song for Indiana forward Tamika Catchings, who leads the Fever in scoring (13.7 point per game) and will retire at the end of this season after 15 years in the league.(Catchings is) logging more minutes than most people do at age 37 and doinng it at a very high level, White said. Kevin Trapp Germany Jersey. Give her a lot of credit for having the work ethic and toughness that she has. She has the ability to impact the game in more ways than just her numbers. And she still impacts the stat sheet with her scoring, assists and steals.Indiana, which has earned a spot in the playoffs for a record 11 consecutive seasons, holds down the fifth spot in the new-look WNBA playoffs, in which the top eight teams, regardless of conference, qualify for the postseason.Washington, meanwhile, is 9-15 and enters this stretch tied with Seattle for the eighth and final playoff spot.The Mystics were in a deep freeze as they when to the Olympic break, mired in a seven-game losing streak and scoring an average of just 79.6 points per game, the second fewest in the league.Washington beat the Fever 76-62 at home on June 22 during a stretch in which it won four times in five games. But the Mystics last victory was on June 29 against San Antonio and theyll be hard-pressed to duplicate the effort they produced against Indiana earlier in the year. ' ' ' 
LOUDON, N. Taven Bryan Jaguars Jersey .H. -- William Byron aced the inaugural Chase race in NASCARs Trucks Series.The Liberty University freshman dominated Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and won for a whopping sixth time this season.This win came with extra credit: the 18-year-old Byron became the first driver to advance to the second round of the Chase.Its a great run for our team, he said. We needed this to get back into Chase form.NASCAR expanded its Chase format this season to include the feeder Xfinity and Truck Series, its champions now crowned in a four-driver shootout at the season finale. The format mostly mirrors the playoff setup used to determine the Sprint Cup champion the last two years.Trucks will use a seven-race Chase to decide a champ. In Trucks, the format is eight drivers cut down to six and then a final four at Homestead.Byron led 161 of 175 laps and was never seriously challenged the No. 9 Toyota in yet another flawless win. His Kyle Busch Motorsports teammate Christopher Bell was second. Matt Crafton, non-Chase driver Tyler Reddick and Timothy Peters completed the top five.Busch had advice for Byron before he took the wheel: Go fast and turn left.It was that simple.Byron, who will race next season for JR Motorsports in the Xfinity Series, won from the pole. Byron lives in a dorm at his Virginia college and seems to have found a home in victory lane. Busch said his only expectations this season were for Byron to win a race or two.Try six.At this rate, one or two more, even the championship, seem like a good bet for Byron. With a break in the schedule, Byron gets his next shot Oct. 3 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.Its not anything new to these guys and this team to be able to go to victory lane, Busch said. It kind of relaxes these guys a little bit.Byron doesnt turn 19 until after the championship finale.Weve got to make it to Homestead, Byron said. Thats our ultimate goal.The rest of the field realized in a hurry that the road to Homestead has to through Byron.The most frustrating part was the 9 driving away like he does and he did it effortlessly, Bell said. Hes in. Thats good for Kyle Busch Motorports and the company. Weve got to be better than the 9 the next time out. Jalen Ramsey Womens Jersey .

LOS ANGELES -- Manager Dave Roberts believes right-fielder Yasiel Puig makes the Dodgers a better baseball club.Going forward, Roberts also hopes Puig can help the Dodgers solve in their inability to hit left-handed pitching.Puig went 2-for-4 in his return to the Dodgers on Friday in a 4-2 setback to the San Diego Padres. Although Los Angeles has had trouble recording hits against southpaws, it registered nine against Padres starter Clayton Richard. However, Richard allowed just a run in five innings and the Padres bullpen kept the Dodgers hitters -- a Joc Pederson solo home run being the only blemish -- quiet the rest of the way.The Dodgers are hitting a major league-worst .218 against left-handed pitching. They were almost no-hit by San Francisco Giants lefty Matt Moore last week before Los Angeles shortstop Corey Seager blooped a single with two outs in the ninth to avoid it.Puig might be the answer.Thats certainly a component, said Roberts, who hasnt decided if Puig, who was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City, is his everyday right-fielder again or whether he will platoon with recently-acquired Josh Reddick from the Oakland Athletics. Its about winning baseball games and the numbers dont lie. We havent hit left-handed pitching, so with Yasiels track record throughout his career, hes shown he can hit left-handed pitching and also play plus-defense. I think were a better team for it.Rich Hill (1-0, 2.09 ERA) is expected to feel better and make his anticipated return for the Dodgers in Saturdays game against the Padres.. Jawaan Taylor Youth Jersey. . Hill has made just one start -- an impressive one though -- in the past month since the Dodgers obtained him from the Oakland Athletics.Hills second scheduled start as a Dodger was scratched after a rain delay Tuesday left him with some tenderness on a blister on his pitching finger that delayed his debut in Los Angles. However, he threw six scoreless innings on five hits in a victory over the Giants on Aug. 24.Every player feels they can get through it. But I dont think a blister can be willed to stay healthy, no matter how much will he has, Roberts said, according to the Los Angeles Times, regarding the teams decision to push back Hills start.The Dodgers will try their luck against Padres right-hander Luis Perdomo (7-7, 5.84 ERA). In his last outing, Perdomo threw a complete game, allowing a run on six hits in a victory over the Miami Marlins.Perdomo forced the Marlins to ground into six double plays, which is a club record for the Padres, during the win. He owns a 60 percent ground-ball rate, which is the best in the National League among pitcher with at least 100 innings.It was a solid game all around, Padres manager Andy Green told the San Diego Union-Tribune. I couldnt ask for more. His stuff plays. Everybody knows it plays. Youve got some of the best hitters in the game beating it into the ground. You couldnt ask for him to take a bigger step forward at this point in time. ' ' '

It was a little off. I felt a little off with my command for some reason. This is a tough league.Ian Kennedy, who held the White Sox to one hit over six innings Sunday to beat Sale in a 2-0 win, threw 74 pitches in the first three innings, but made it through six, allowing two runs, five hits, three walks andd a sacrifice fly. Udonis Haslem Heat Jersey.
