TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Al Horford Celtics Swingman Jersey . -- If there is one area where Florida State has struggled early in the season, it is 3-point shooting. It certainly didnt have any problems with its perimeter game on Tuesday.The Seminoles sank 14 3-pointers in a 98-49 victory over Southern Mississippi. They came into the game 12th in the Atlantic Coast Conference in 3-point percentage at 32.9 percent but converted 48.3 percent from beyond the arc on Tuesday.We have a ton of guys that can get to the rim and create their own shot. The one thing that weve struggled with early is perimeter shooting, said Brandon Allen, who had a career-high 10 points and was 2 of 3 from the perimeter. We can beat teams in a lot of different ways.PJ Savoy, who missed the first six games due to a turf toe injury, led the way with 27 points and was 7 of 10 from 3-point range.Coach Leonard Hamilton cited most of the Seminoles early perimeter struggles due to Savoys absence. But the 6-foot-4 sophomore junior college transfer showed that he can generate his points in limited action. He played just 14 minutes as FSU (8-1) had a decisive 57-19 edge in bench points.He made the most of it. We need that. Hes a shooter, thats what we brought him here for, said Dwayne Bacon, who had 13 points.Eddie Davis III led the Golden Eagles (3-4) with 17 points and Cortez Edwards added 11. Southern Miss shot a season low 30.2 percent (19 of 63) from the field.We werent ready for it. Their pressure just ate us alive, Southern Miss coach Doc Sadler said. We never got started and they got to the top of the hill fast.BIG PICTURESouthern Mississippi: The Golden Eagles have six road games this month and have had a rough start. Before this loss, they lost by nine at Jackson State on Sunday. The next road game wont be any easier as Southern Miss will face in-state rival Mississippi State in Jackson on Dec. 19.Florida State: The Seminoles continue to improve on defense. During this four-game winning streak they have held opponents to an average of 56.3 points while holding them to a combined 29.3 percent shooting from the field.HIGHLIGHT REELJarquez Smith became the 16th player in school history with 100 career blocks 51 seconds into the game. Smith blocked a 3-point attempt by Michael Ramsey, saved the ball from going out of bounds and then sank a 3-pointer on the ensuing trip down the floor for Florida States first points.The 6-foot-9 senior forward, who made his first start in two years, had 14 points, two blocks and two steals.INJURIESFlorida States Jonathan Isaac missed his second straight game due to a hip flexor injury that he suffered in practice. The 6-foot-10 forward is second on the team in scoring and fourth among Atlantic Coast Conference freshmen averaging 15.1 points per game. Phil Cofer was also held out as a precaution due to a foot injury.HE SAID ITTheir 11th guy is better than anyone that weve got, Sadler on Florida State.UP NEXTSouthern Mississippi: The Golden Eagles host Tulane on Saturday. It is their only home game in the month of December.Florida State: The Seminoles face Nicholls State on Thursday in the second of three straight home games.

U.S. District Judge Lorna G. Schofield in Manhattan agreed that lawyers on both sides could make their formal requests by Nov. 8. A hearing is scheduled for a day earlier. Jordan Siev, a lawyer for Rodriguez, wrote in a joint letter to the judge from lawyers on both sides that MLB lawyers planned to ask that the lawsuit be dismissed. Brook Lopez Nets Swingman Jersey . Instead of dwelling on the negative, Oates focused on what was good about the clubs recent play. It worked.http:///...ll-Westbrook-Jersey/ . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Hector Santiago says he doesnt want to be traded, but if he keeps pitching like he is, he could draw plenty of interest from teams looking to make a playoff push.The non-waiver trading deadline is less than two weeks away, meaning Santiagos start for the Los Angeles Angels Wednesday against the Texas Rangers could be his last if the club decides to deal him.Santiago has a lot going for him -- hes left-handed, he has experience out of the bullpen, and most notably, hes on a roll.Santiago has thrown 22 consecutive innings without giving up an earned run. Hes lost just once over his last nine starts, the club going 7-2 in those games. However, he hasnt been very good against the Rangers, going 0-2 with a 7.07 ERA in three starts this season.The Rangers, though figure to see a different Santiago than the one they saw earlier this season.Its a combination of really good stuff with command, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Santiagos impressive stretch. Not only is he getting the ball in the zone, hes getting it into good spots. Hes pitching in well, changing speeds, getting the ball to the outside corner, he has some great life on his stuff.Trading Santiago, though, might not make financial sense to the Angels. Santiago is making $5 million this year and is eligible for arbitration in 2017. He isnt eligible for free agency until 2018.Left-hander Martin Perez will start for Texas.The Rangers figure to be involved in trade talks as well in the coming days, as infielder Jurickson Profar seems to be drawing plenty of interest. He didnt start Tuesdays game against the Angels, but he has started games this seasonn at four different positions -- first base, second base, shortstop and third base -- as well as designated hitter. Kevin Durant USA Jersey. And now, Profar is taking fly balls in the outfield, expanding manager Jeff Banisters options to get him in the lineup more often. Profar leads the team in hitting with a .316 average.We are trying to expand his skill set, Banister told MLB.com. This is something we talked about. Look, he has been here long enough and we have challenged him to do a number of things and he has answered all the challenges. We like the professional at-bats he gives us. Expanding his versatility helps him out and helps us out. Players force you to either play them or take them out. He continues to play well.Profar said he has no problem moving around the field this year, but wants to be a starting shortstop next year, even if that means a trade.I have no problem with that if its going to make the team better, Profar told MLB.com. That means Im playing very good. That makes me happy.Profars versatility, though, would seem to make him a more valuable tool for the Rangers playoff push.One Ranger who isnt going anywhere is third baseman Adrian Beltre, who loves playing at Angel Stadium. He has more homers (19) and RBI (67) in Anaheim than any other road ballpark.And those 19 homers are the fifth most by any visiting player in Anaheim, trailing Alex Rodriguez (38), Jose Canseco (24), Juan Gonzalez (24), and Rafael Palmeiro (24). All five, by the way, played part of their careers with the Rangers. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
