EAST LANSING, Mich. http://www.jetsrookiestore.com/Jets-Josh-Mccown-Jersey/ . -- Eron Harris had 31 points and No. 13 Michigan State held off Florida Gulf Coast 78-77 on Sunday night when a timekeeping error led to a disputed finish.With 1.6 seconds remaining, Florida Gulf Coast threw a long inbounds pass from underneath its own basket. But the clock incorrectly started when the pass was thrown, rather than when Antravious Simmons caught the ball by the foul line at the other end of the court.So as Simmons turned to try a winning shot, the buzzer sounded -- much too early. Simmons missed his attempt, but FGCU players looked confused and coach Joe Dooley sought an explanation.Officials went to a video review as players and fans waited to find out if the game was in fact over. Following the delay, the play stood and Michigan State escaped.Harris made six 3-pointers and Miles Bridges added 13 points for the Spartans (2-2), who shot a season-best 51 percent from the floor. They hit 52.9 percent of their attempts from beyond the 3-point line, but struggled at the free throw line (57.6 percent).Florida Gulf Coast (1-3) got 18 points apiece from Brandon Goodwin and Simmons, who added 12 rebounds.

The first of several scheduled late-evening starts didnt affect Kentucky as it won by its biggest margin this season.The Wildcats controlled Duquesne (2-3) on both ends, holding the Dukes to a season-low 30 percent shooting while making 35 of 76 attempts (46 percent).Isaiah Briscoe and Mychal Mulder each had 13 points and Bam Adebayo had 12 with eight rebounds for Kentucky, which outrebounded Duquesne 49-32 to win its second game of the Bluegrass Showcase.Emile Blackman had 13 points for the Dukes.NO. 8 VIRGINIA 62, YALE 38CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Marial Shayok scored 15 points and No. 8 Virginia held Yale scoreless for a stretch of nearly 9 minutes in the second half.Freshman Kyle Guy added 12 points for the Cavaliers (3-0), eight during a 16-0 second-half run that turned a 37-33 lead into a rout.Blake Reynolds led Yale (2-1) with 10 points.

Pert has formerly spent time as an assistant coach with Cardiff City, Coventry City, and Bahrain mens national team. "Martyn is a highly-respected coach with experience at the top levels in England," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. http://www.jetsrookiestore.com/Jets-Mike-Pennel-Jersey/ . - The Washington Redskins have cut defensive lineman Adam Carriker and punter Sav Rocca. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Pundits predicted a decline for Denvers defense after Malik Jackson jumped to Jacksonville in free agency.Jacksons six-year, $90 million contract with the Jaguars dwarfed Derek Wolfes four year, $37.5 million deal that hed signed three months earlier to stick around Denver and continue working under coordinator Wade Phillips and renowned D-line coach Bill Kollar.Yet, Wolfe has emerged as more than just the guy who does all the dirty work as a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme so his teammates can get all the sacks and accolades.His four sacks so far include a career-best 2 1/2 last week at Tampa and are tied for second in the AFC behind teammate Von Millers league-leading 5 1/2.His teammates, coaches and general manager are all calling Wolfe a big reason the Broncos are 4-0 heading into their showdown with the Atlanta Falcons (3-1) Sunday.In his last 14 games, counting the playoffs, Wolfe has a dozen sacks, all the more impressive given that he has to constantly outrace Miller, DeMarcus Ware, Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett to the quarterback.To me, Derek is a real man, coach Gary Kubiak said. We can count on him every week.Miller credits some of his pass rushing prowess to having Wolfe as his wingman.Its like Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash. We just get each other, Miller said Thursday, a day after he compared himself and Wolfe to Kobe and Shaq.Hes just selfless, Miller said. If this was basketball, he would be a true, dominant center.This being football, Wolfe is a dominant D-lineman.Miller has 72 career sacks, counting playoffs, since GM John Elway spent his first draft pick on him in 2011. Wolfe has 23 1/2 since coming into the league a year later, more than half of which have come since last season.Its great to see him get a lot of sacks, Miller said. About 10 of my sacks that Ive gotten throughout my career Ive stolen from Derek. So, its been a great partnership, especially for me.Wolfe has benefited, too.There have been sacks Ive gotten because of him, as well, Wolfe said.Denvers No Fly Zone secondary gets a lot of kudos but cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said Wolfe is a big reason the Broncos have throttled Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, Andy Dalton and Jameis Winston.Wolfe makes everybodyys life easier, Harris said. http://www.jetsrookiestore.com/Jets-Bryce-Petty-Jersey/. Its great when you have a guy that can take on two blockers or a guy that can push the quarterback up the middle and make him scramble outside. Youve got to have a guy like Wolfe or the quarterback just steps up.The Broncos, who doled out $115 million in guarantees to Miller, Brandon Marshall and Emmanuel Sanders this offseason, are glad they were able to keep Wolfe off the market with a deal that included $17.5 million in guarantees.He did his contract before the season was over with, Miller said. He believed in us before we believed in ourselves.Wolfe called it a no-brainer, even after watching Jackson get almost triple what he did three months later.For me it was about creating a legacy. I had already put in four hard years here. Why would I go somewhere else and start over? Wolfe said. Id rather stay here, where I know everybody and the organization had been through rough times with me through a serious (neck) injury (in 2013) and they had my back in that. They took care of me. So, when it came time to sign my contract, I gave them a pretty good discount and decided it was more about the legacy than the money.More than half of Wolfes sacks have come since the arrival last year of Phillips and Kollar, a 28th-year NFL assistant who said tutoring a guy who works that hard and wants to be a hell of a player keeps him young at heart.Why would you ever want to leave that core group, let alone the players that I had here? Wolfe said. Obviously, I knew that if I took less money, there was a better chance we could keep Von and Brandon and Emmanuel. I just knew that it was the right move.Game notes QB Trevor Siemian (bruised left shoulder) returned to practice Thursday. I think we took a big step forward today, Kubiak said, adding that however Siemian feels Friday will go a long way toward determining whether hell start over Paxton Lynch this weekend.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Wholesale Jerseys From ChinaChina Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys ChinaChina NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
