TUCSON, Ariz. Nike Air Max 95 Herren Günstig . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. The Wildcats werent perfect during their non-conference season, but their record was and thats all that matters to them. Nick Johnson scored 20 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added 14 and top-ranked Arizona rolled over Northern Arizona 77-44 on Monday night to complete its second straight undefeated non-conference slate. "Were good, but we can get a lot better," Johnson said. "Hey, 13-0, well take that. Now weve just got to get ready for conference." The Wildcats appear to be in good shape after their latest rout against an overmatched opponent. Arizona (13-0) played its second straight game without injured centre Kaleb Tarczewski, but didnt really need him, grabbing control with a 27-4 first-half run. Johnson got the run started and Hollis-Jefferson provided a spark starting in place of Tarczewski, grabbing eight rebounds while hustling all over the floor. Brandon Ashley added 11 points and nine rebounds, Gabe York had 10 points and four steals, and T.J. McConnell had six assists in Arizonas 27th straight non-conference win. One of the nations best defensive teams all season, the Wildcats did their most damage on that end, holding Northern Arizona (3-8) to 36 per cent shooting while scoring 18 points off 23 turnovers. An overwhelming No. 1 the past two weeks, Arizona should stay atop the polls at least one more week with its next game not until Jan. 2 against Washington State. "Being the No. 1 team in the country, you can carry it as a burden and take all of the negative connotations that you want," Arizona coach Sean Miller said. "On the flip side, weve really embraced the fact that were the No. 1 team in the country. You cant take it from us. We earned it." Northern Arizona is plenty familiar with trip south, playing in Tucson every season but one since 2002. It hasnt gone too well for the Lumberjacks. Other than a five-point game in 2010, Arizona has beaten Northern Arizona in routs, including a 93-50 runaway last season. The Lumberjacks faced an even bigger hill this time around. Northern Arizona had a huge setback just before the season started, when sophomore guard Dwayne Russell, the teams top returning scorer, decided to transfer. The Lumberjacks managed to play close games against Southern California and Fresno State, but those teams are nothing like what they were up against at the McKale Center. Arizona had rolled through its non-conference schedule to this point, knocking off teams like Duke and Michigan to move atop The Associated Press poll two weeks ago. Northern Arizona held its own while Arizona struggled on offence early on, playing to an 11-all tie with the Wildcats in the opening 8 minutes. Arizona turned into a rout after that, scoring 17 straight points during its big run to go up 38-15. Johnson keyed it, hitting consecutive 3-pointers at the start and adding another to put the Wildcats up 15. The junior guard had 14 points by halftime to help Arizona to a 41-17 lead. Northern Arizona had two field goals over the final 10 minutes and shot 7 of 19 from the floor. Worse for the Lumberjacks, they had no assists in the half and 12 turnovers that led to 18 points for Arizona. "We had too many turnovers and thats what killed us," Northern Arizona forward Gaellan Bewernick said. "Valuing the ball is the biggest thing for us right now." Taking it away is the top priority for the Wildcats and theyve proven to be pretty good at it. Arizona is long, athletic, versatile and, usually has a 7-foot anchor in Tarczewski. The Wildcats entered Mondays game seventh nationally in scoring defence, allowing 57.8 points per game, and eighth in shooting percentage against at 37.3 Even without Tarczewski to contend with, the Lumberjacks were no match for Arizona. Let by Johnson and McConnell out top, the Wildcats hounded Northern Arizona into turnovers, difficult shots and made it tough for the Lumberjacks to even run their offence. Arizona keyed its big first-half run with defence and didnt really let up until the game was well out of hand in the second half. Northern Arizona had four assists and failed to get a player in double-figures scoring to become the third opponent in four games to be held under 50 points by Arizona. "Best defensive team Ive seen in a long time," said NAU coach Jack Murphy, a former manager under Lute Olson at Arizona. "Defensively, theyre better than any team when I was here. Their length, they guard pick and rolls, motion and they limit you to one shot. They defend." And win, at least to this point.

Nike Air Max 2020 Günstig .com) - Delon Wright scored 17 points and No.(SportsNetwork.com) - Still in search of their first home win of the season, the Boston Red Sox welcome the Texas Rangers to Fenway Park Monday for the opener of a three-game set. The game can be seen live on TSN2 starting at 7:00pm et/4:00 pm pt. Texas avoided a series sweep at Tampa Bay on Sunday thanks largely to Yu Darvish, who blanked the Rays for a 3-0 victory in his season debut. A stiff neck forced Darvish to skip his scheduled opening day start, but he was downright nasty on Sunday with six strikeouts and a walk in seven shutout innings. In the process, he also surpassed Kerry Wood to become the fastest player in MLB history to reach 500 career strikeouts. Elvis Andrus went deep in the eighth inning for only the Rangers second home run of the season, and closer Joakim Soria retired the side in order in the ninth for his first save since Sept. 11, 2011. Meanwhile, Boston is looking to get back on track after being swept by the Milwaukee Brewers at home over the weekend. The Red Sox had not lost an interleague series in their previous 12 tries. "Weve had a difficult time bunching hits together," manager John Farrell said. "Were doing our ddamnedest, I know that, to try to build an inning, to try to hit to the situation. Nike Air Vapormax Billig. At some point, you credit the quality of pitches made in key spots by the opposing pitcher." Despite Bostons struggles over the weekend, Rangers manager Ron Washington knows his team faces a tough test in this series. "Theyre still nine tough innings there," Washington said. "I just hope we can pitch, get some hits, put some runs on the board and win some ballgames." Making the start for Boston is John Lackey, and the former Angels hurler will face Texas for the 39th time in his career. However, the right-hander has an unsightly 6.01 ERA for his career against Texas, his highest ERA against any American League team. For Texas, Tanner Scheppers looks to rebound after getting tagged for seven runs in just four innings against Philadelphia on opening day. That start was the first of Scheppers big league career, as he got the nod in place of an injured Darvish. The Rangers boast a .674 winning percentage against Boston since 2009, the best percentage of any Red Sox foe in that span. This will be the Rangers only trip to Fenway this season. ' ' '
