LEXINGTON, Ky. Air Max Pas Cher Livraison Rapide . -- Kentuckys latest highly touted freshman class showed their expected potential, but only after a boost from the veterans.Isaiah Briscoe scored 17 points, Derek Willis added 15 and No. 2 Kentucky went on to an 87-64 season-opening victory over Stephen F. Austin on Friday night.An opener expected to highlight the Wildcats latest group of talented freshmen instead saw veterans such as sophomore guard Briscoe and Willis, a senior forward, shoulder the load. They combined to make 11 of 18 from the field while their experience offset the newcomers early shooting troubles. Seven-foot sophomore Isaac Humphries (9 points, 8 rebounds) filled a big inside void with 6-10 freshman Bam Adebayo (five points) hampered by foul trouble.Senior guard Mychal Mulder, a transfer who scored just 12 points last season for the Wildcats, had eight on a team-high two 3-pointers.Before the game Coach (John Calipari) reminded us that theyre young and its their first game, so make sure everything out there is in order, said Briscoe, who worked out for several NBA teams last spring before deciding to return for a second season.Several freshmen did their part with forward Wenyen Gabriel scoring 10 first-half points off the bench. Guard DeAaron Fox added 12 points and broke a 36-year-old program record for assists in an opener with 12, while Malik Monk had 10 second-half points.Isaiah Traylor scored 15 points and Leon Gilmore III had 12 with 11 rebounds for Stephen F. Austin, which lost the debut of coach Kyle Keller. The Lumberjacks outrebounded Kentucky 36-28 but committed 28 turnovers leading to 32 points.BIG PICTUREStephen F. Austin: Despite losing eight players from last years team, the Lumberjacks early on resembled the competitive NCAA Tournament team that upset third-seeded West Virginia before losing by five points to No. 6 seed Notre Dame in the second. They slowed the pace before the Wildcats height and depth took over.Keller became first of three SFA coaches this century to lose his debut, but the Lumberjacks should make a strong push for their first straight Southland Conference regular season title.When we look back on this game, were going to draw on it, said Keller, who took over after being a Texas A&M assistant. Were going to get a lot of confidence from this.Kentucky: Willis followed up last seasons breakout by being the steadying force early, making 3 of 4 field goals with two blocks. He finished with five rebounds. Humphries was a pleasant surprise with Adebayo spending much of the first half on the bench. The Wildcats shot 50 percent but were still outrebounded.Were one of those teams that is so young, Calipari said, not disciplined enough defensively, should be a better rebounding team. We got outrebounded.POLL IMPLICATIONSKentucky is likely to remain in position and wont face that question until after meeting No. 12 Michigan State next week in New York.SELFLESS PLAYCalipari preaches unselfishness to players and brags about his succession of standout point guards that have set the tone, most recently by Tyler Ulis. Fox offered glimpses of being Kentuckys next floor general by breaking Dirk Minniefields old mark of 11 assists against Butler on Nov. 27, 1982.I didnt even realize I was doing it, Fox said. I knew I wasnt shooting the ball well. Teammates were cutting and finishing when I was passing the ball to them, so all the credit is to them.BAMS ROUGH NIGHTAdebayo was expected to get most of the attention because of his NBA-caliber game and build. But his physical style drew two quick fouls and four overall, leaving him with just one rebound in 15 minutes.UP NEXTStephen F. Austin: Returns home to host Longwood on Tuesday and regroup from the loss.Kentucky: Hosts Canisius on Sunday in the first meeting between the schools since 1998. The Wildcats have won previous games against the Golden Griffins and seek a strong tuneup before facing No. 12 Michigan State on Tuesday in New York.---AP college basketball: collegebasketball.ap.org Air Max Livraison Gratuite .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons.

Howard Ganz, an MLB lawyer, said in a letter to U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos that Rodriguezs claims do not come "remotely close" to what is needed to overturn an arbitration decision in federal court. http://www.franceairmax.fr/ . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. LOS ANGELES -- Adoree Jackson hopes to be the spark plug for a struggling Southern California offense.The Trojans have already made a change at quarterback, naming redshirt freshman Sam Darnold the starter against No. 24 Utah on Friday. Using the electric cornerback Jackson more on offense is another way to shake up an offense that has only scored one touchdown in two games against Power-5 opponents Alabama and Stanford this season.I think I just get the momentum going, like Coach (Clay Helton) said, Jackson said. I feel like Im the lighter fluid to the barbecue. Just throw me in there and then get the party started.Jackson has not caught a pass this season, but averaged 14.9 yards per reception and scored five touchdowns in occasional action as a wide receiver during his first two seasons at USC. He flashed that big-play ability by returning a punt 77 yards for a touchdown against Utah State to earn Pac-12 special teams player of the week honors. Jackson also intercepted a pass against the Cardinal.After missing spring practices in an attempt to qualify for the Rio Olympics in the long jump, Jackson focused on playing defensive back in training camp to refine his skills and familiarize himself with new coordinator Clancy Pendergasts schemes. But with the offense misfiring, Jackson is ready to return to three-way duties, expressing it in his low-key way.I dont mind getting out there, get some touchdowns, catch some balls, get some explosive plays, Jackson said. Nothing changes for me. I have to go out there, practice offense, just know a couple plays. Defensively, I just do everything the same.Jackson didnt say how he reacted to the announcement Monday morning during a team meeting that Darnold wouldd replace redshirt junior Max Browne, but is looking forward to seeing how he plays.

The more pressing issue beyond changing quarterbacks, Jackson said, is eliminating the penalties and mental mistakes that have caused the offense to stall.You see glimpses when we do everything correctly, and then sometimes we dont do stuff correctly and we look bad, Jackson said. Whats not there is the consistency for us offensively.Besides using Jackson at receiver, the USC offense could also get a boost from former Utes defensive tackle Stevie Tuikolovatu, who joined USC as a blueshirt graduate transfer during training camp. Tuikolovatu met with Pendergast and offensive coordinator Tee Martin this week to give them scouting reports on Utahs personnel.Helton said there were limits to what Tuikolovatu could provide, but praised the redshirt senior from Salt Lake City for bringing maturity to a young defensive line. Tuikolovatu does believe his experience going against the Utah offensive line in practice would be helpful.I think its a huge advantage, Tuikolovatu said. Ive been telling a lot of the guys that it feels weird, its going to feel like practice for me because Ive been going against them for four years.Game notes Offensive tackle E.J. Price will transfer. Price, a freshman from Dacula, Ga., was homesick and dealing with a family illness, Helton said. Helton also denied social media postings alleging there had been a physical altercation between him and Price, saying that if Price had punched him I wouldnt be here, Id be dead. May make my face look better, Helton said.
