|Norfolk, VA (SportsNetwork. Tanoh Kpassagnon Youth Jersey .com) - Aaron Bacote scored a career-high 31 points on a perfect shooting effort from the floor, leading Old Dominion to a 73-67 upset of No. 14 VCU at the Constant Center. Bacote hit all eight of his field goal attempts and went 4-for-4 from 3-point range, while the Monarchs knocked down 9-of-17 attempts from beyond the arc to earn their first win over a ranked opponent since 2009. The Rams, on the other hand, struggled from the perimeter for much of the day and shot 39 percent overall in being dealt a second defeat in their last three games. Give (ODU) Coach (Jeff) Jones and his staff and his team a lot of credit, said VCU head coach Shaka Smart. They really came out with an aggressiveness about them at both ends of the floor, that really was the difference in the game. Trey Freeman added 15 points in a game the Monarchs (5-1) led virtually the entire way due to their marksmanship from the perimeter and ability to handle VCUs trademark pressure defense. I think our guys thought they could win. I dont know that they came into the game expecting to win, said Jones. We hadnt put together 40 minutes against that kind of team. Treveon Graham tallied 29 points for VCU (4-2), with Melvin Johnson recording 14 in the loss. ODU put the Rams in a sizeable hole midway through the opening half on the strength of its long-range shooting success. The Monarchs made each of their five 3-point attempts -- with Bacote draining the first two and Ambrose Mosley the last three -- during a 17-2 run that turned a tie game into a 23-8 lead. The Monarchs maintained a double-digit cushion well into the second half, building a 32-18 advantage at the break by beating VCU at its own game. Old Dominion committed just four turnovers as Freeman successfully navigated the Rams press, while the Rams had nine giveaways that led to 12 Monarchs points over the opening period. For most of the game I thought we had that nice balance, Jones said. We wanted to be aggressive, but we wanted to be smart. Down by as many as 18 early in the second half and trailing 57-40 with under 4 1/2 minutes to go, VCU finally began to close the gap. Graham ripped off eight straight points to get the margin under 10, then later drilled a trey to cap a 13-2 spurt that pulled the Rams within 59-53 with 1:34 remaining. The Monarchs were able to hold on by hitting their foul shots, however, going 12-of-14 from the charity stripe in the final minute. ODU ended the game 24-of-30 at the free throw line, with VCU converting only 13 of its 22 chances. Game Notes The Monarchs had dropped five straight against ranked teams since a 61-57 decision over then-No. 11 Georgetown on Dec. 19, 2009 ... Bacotes previous career best was 28 points, set twice last season ... VCU had won four straight meetings between the former Sun Belt and CAA rivals, with Old Dominions last victory over the Rams coming in the 2011 CAA Tournament title game ...

"The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest. http://www.kcchiefsnflfansclub.co...sagnon-Chiefs-Jersey.html?cat=927 .

The Wizards will be out for revenge of a 107-95 loss in Miami on Oct. 29 and have lost six of the previous eight games in this series. Washington, though, has won two in a row and four of the past five meetings at home and is trying to pass the Heat as the top team in the division. The two rivals will meet again Dec. 19 in Miami and March 15 at Washington. Washington ended a two-game losing streak its last time out in an 83-80 triumph versus the New Orleans Pelicans Saturday in the opener of a four-game homestand. The division-leading Wizards were led by Marcin Gortat, who powered his way to 24 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks. Gortat played 41 minutes and was 12-of-20 from the floor. I think my teammates found me a lot. I think I was in the right spots, said Gortat. (I) tried to be productive, tried to be aggressive (and) a little bit more physical. Bradley Beal scored 12 points, John Wall had 11 and seven assists, and Paul Pierce chipped in 10 points, helping the Wizards improve to 10-5 overall and 6-2 at the Verizon Center. Pierce is averaging 15.0 points and 4.5 rebounds in his last six games. In six games since returning from a wrist injury, Beal is averaging 14.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. The Wizards are averaging 98.4 ppg at home and will also entertain the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets. Tanoh Kpassagnon Womens Jersey. In injury news, forward Nene (foot) is questionable versus the Heat and has missed the last three games. Miami is playing the second game of a back-to-back and defeated the New York Knicks, 86-79, Sunday night at Madison Square Garden. Heat star guard Dwyane Wade returned from a seven-game absence because of a hamstring issue and scored 27 points on 11-of-18 shooting. The Heat went 3-4 without Wade and also received 20 points and nine rebounds from Chris Bosh. Luol Deng rounded out the double-digit scorers with 10 points and 10 boards. Knicks star Carmelo Anthony returned after a two-game absence because of back spasms and netted 31 points. Wade scored 13 points in the fourth quarter and talked about his role in crunchtime. I understand that in the fourth quarter, Chris (Bosh) and myself are going to be the guys that our team is going to be looking at to bring it home, Wade said. Thats the only quarter that I can really be selfish. New York rallied from 16 points down to pull within 65-63, but Wade and the Heat were able to maintain their lead. Boshs 3-pointer with about a minute left set the Heat up for their fourth win in the last six games. The Heat are playing seven of the next eight games on the road and are 5-2 outside of South Beach this season. They will host Atlanta Wednesday before embarking on a five-game odyssey. Miami is 5-1 this season when scoring 100 or more points and 8-0 when leading after three quarters.
