American team Evil Geniuses is just one match away from winning almost $9 million in the Dota 2 tournament The International 6. Air Max Outlet Italia . For Syed Sumail Suma1L Hassan, their 17-year-old phenom, winning millions of dollars is nothing new. Last year at The International 5, the EG squad took home $6,634,661, making Suma1L the youngest esports player to earn more than $1 million in prize money at 16 years old.In 2008, Suma1L started playing Dota 2 at the age of 7 in his native Pakistan, although he switched to playing cricket for a while before returning to the keyboard and mouse. In the spring of 2014, his family moved to a suburb of Chicago, where he played the game endlessly when not in school. He was picked up by top team Evil Geniuses in January 2015, and his breakout performance was at the Dota 2 Asia Championships in February when he led EG to a $1.2 million first prize. Later that year came The International, after which the five players on the team were each more than $1 million richer.On Aug. 12, Evil Geniuses will play Chinese team Wings Gaming in the upper bracket finals. If they win, they go straight to the grand finals the next day. If they lose, they will have one more chance to make it to the final round. Either way, theyre guaranteed at least $2 million, but Evil Geniuses want to become the first team to win The International twice. The win would make Suma1L, and the rest of Evil Geniuses, multimillionaires in just two years. Not bad for a kid who hasnt entered college. Air Max Saldi . He says so-called TRT is only one problem and he wants to go even further than the ban. "Its about time," St-Pierre told reporters at a promotional event in Montreal on Friday. "I think its a good thing. Air Max Scontate Italia . PETERSBURG, Fla. . With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. SEATTLE -- The unsatisfying appetizers for No. 8 Washington are done. Proving the Huskies are worthy of their lofty ranking three weeks into the season now begins.Well find out quick. Well find out quick what we have, Washington coach Chris Petersen said.Jake Browning threw three touchdown passes in the first 16 minutes and No. 8 Washington closed out its uninspired nonconference schedule with a 41-3 win over Portland State on Saturday night.Browning and the Huskies (3-0) led 14-0 after less than 3 minutes and coasted their way past the lower division opponent. Browning threw a 43-yard touchdown to Chico McClatcher on Washingtons opening drive, and added TD tosses of 11 yards to Darrell Daniels, 13 yards to McClatcher on the second play of the second quarter and a 4-yard TD pass to Myles Gaskin early in the fourth quarter.I think we learned some things about our team that are good things and some things that we still need to clean up, Petersen said.Browning finished 12 of 19 for 163 yards. His numbers were less impressive than the first two weeks due to the Huskies being helped out by a pair of Portland State turnovers deep in its own end, giving Washington a short field. Browning now has 12 touchdown passes in three games after throwing 16 TDs all of last season.Will Dissly, a converted defensive end now playing tight end, caught a 27-yard touchdown from K.J. Carta-Samuels in the fourth quarter as Washington extended its streak of scoring 40 or more points to six straight games dating to last season.Portland State served as the final warmup before Washingtons season really begins next week at Arizona. The Huskies outscored its three nonconference opponents -- Rutgers, Idaho and Portland State -- 148-30 and Washingtons starting defense has yet to allow a touchdown while on the field.I think we have proved that we arent looking past anything and that we are focused on the game, which Im sure youve heard millions of times from guys on our team, Browning said. We just have to continue that approach and get ready for Arizona.Alex Kuresa was 11 of 17 passing for 148 yards and one interception for Portland State. The Vikings (1-2) had four total turnovers and managed just 34 yards rushing on 42 carries.Thats brutal, Portland State coach Bruce Barnum said of the 34 yards rushing. Air Max Saldi Italia. I just read that stat. Id also like to marry Miss America but some things never happen. Not against that defense.THE TAKEAWAYPortland State: The Vikings played a nearly perfect game when they upset Washington State last year. This season, too many miscues protecting the ball kept Portland State from being competitive in either of its games against FBS competition. The Vikings committed six turnovers in last weeks loss at San Jose State then fumbled the first kickoff they received on Saturday and found themselves down 14-0 in a hurry.Washington: The Huskies run game continues to baffle. Gaskin finished with a season-high 93 yards rushing on 13 carries, including a season-best 37-yard run early in the fourth quarter. The Huskies rushed for 213 yards but it took into the fourth quarter before the finding sustained success on the ground against a Portland State defense that allowed 409 yards rushing to San Jose State last week.POLL IMPLICATIONSWashington may creep a little higher in the Top 25 but not much. The impressive win by No. 10 Louisville over No. 2 Florida State will likely vault the Cardinals past Washington in the Top 10. The Huskies will get their chance to impress in the coming weeks.DEFENSIVE STOPSPetersen was thrilled with the performance of Washingtons defense against Portland States unique run game. Kuresa was held to (minus)-8 yards on 12 carries. Paris Penn, who rushed for 137 yards against San Jose State was held to 7 yards by Washington.To do what we did I couldnt be more pleased, Washington defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski said.UP NEXTPortland State: The Vikings return to the FCS level and open Big Sky play next Saturday at defending conference champion Southern Utah.Washington: The Huskies finally get tested when they travel to Arizona for their Pac-12 opener next Saturday. Its a challenging stretch for Washington playing a late Saturday night game in the desert following by a short week before hosting Stanford on Friday, Sept. 30.---AP College Football: ' ' '
