Shannon Evans off a steal by Cunliffe gave the Sun
« เมื่อ: 15:30 น. วันที่ 11 มิ.ย. 18 »
BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens endured five miserable weeks without a win before finally ending the drought against the Steelers.Pittsburgh can only hope to avoid a similar skid.After losing four in a row -- their longest dry stretch under coach John Harbaugh -- the Ravens (4-4) sat through a bye week before returning Sunday to beat Pittsburgh 21-14 , their first victory since Sept. 25.This was the kind of win that we need, said receiver Steve Smith, who returned from an ankle injury to catch four passes for 47 yards.Pittsburgh (4-4) has dropped three in a row to fall into a first-place tie with Baltimore in the AFC North.The return of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wasnt enough to right the Steelers , who got only 36 yards from their running game and were penalized 13 times for 99 yards.Our record tells us what we are, Roethlisberger said. Were at the halfway point. We use this as kind of a halftime. We need to be a great second-half team.Some things we learned about the those bitter rivals, the Ravens and Steelers:SLIDE RULE: The Ravens received a scare when quarterback Joe Flacco slid on the turf at the end of an impromptu run and appeared to severely twist his surgically repaired left knee.Luckily for the Ravens, the problem was a broken leg brace, which was quickly corrected.It looked like there was something sticking out of the side of my leg, Flacco said. I could see it was the brace, and it was putting a lot of pressure on my leg.Poking fun at what was initially perceived to be a serious issue, Baltimore Orioles backup catcher Caleb Joseph posted on Twitter, offering to host Flacco at Camden Yards for a free sliding seminar .DEEP THOUGHTS: Although Steelers receiver Antonio Brown scored his second career touchdown against the Ravens, the four-time Pro Bowler had problems getting open downfield.The linebacker, the corner, the safety . they used a lot of guys to take me away, Brown said.Baltimore was content to let Roethlisberger complete a few short passes, but Pittsburghs lack of a running game and inability to go deep clearly gave the Ravens some momentum.If hes to avoid getting triple teamed, Brown could use a little help from the teams other receivers.Other guys have to step up, he said. It just shows that people got respect for me. But we have to find a way to win no matter what they do.HOLD THAT LINE: Ravens rookie Ronnie Stanley returned to his left tackle spot after missing four straight games due to a foot injury.It did not go well. Stanley was called for holding three times and also was flagged for illegal use of hands.Yes, I know I can play better, he said.Stanley, the sixth overall pick in the NFL draft, said he ailing foot was still a bit sore. But the victory eased the pain.It was a fight out there, he said. We got the win. Thats all that matters, he said.SELF-INFLICTED WOUNDS: The Steelers know theyve got only themselves to blame for getting so far behind in a winnable game.Pittsburgh converted only four of 17 third downs, was repeatedly penalized and even failed to execute an onside kick in the final minute.It was pretty pathetic, guard David DeCastro said. You know, when you look up in the third quarter and theres two first downs, its kind of frustrating and an empty feeling. On third downs, we just couldnt capitalize. There were penalties, This was just a really frustrating game.LIFE ON THE OTHER SIDE: Mike Wallace put the Ravens ahead for good in the second quarter with a 95-yard catch and run for a score .Wallace wasnt so much pleased about beating his former team as he was about getting the Ravens a much-needed victory.It was a little sweeter because it was against my old team, but I havent been there in a while, Wallace said. I really want to win because we need to win to get the lead in the division. That was the only thing that mattered.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Womens Braves Jerseys . -- Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday nights game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury. John Smoltz Jersey . R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. http://www.bravesjerseyscheap.com/?tag=tyler-flowers-jersey . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. Bob Uecker Jersey . A big centre with all the tools to be an elite player, Johansen paced the Blue Jackets with a standout game Saturday night. He had a goal and two assists for a career-high three points as Columbus beat the New York Islanders 5-2 to snap a five-game losing streak. Julio Teheran Jersey . -- Hunter Smith scored the winner with just 12 seconds remaining in the third period as the Oshawa Generals edged the host Sarnia Sting 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. TEMPE, Ariz. -- A wide-open, run-and-gun style opened up Arizona States offense, even if the defense had some lapses.The Sun Devils had six players finish in double figures and their point total tied for the second-highest ever in program history. Freshman Sam Cunliffe had 23 points and 10 rebounds, and Kodi Justice scored a season-high 20 points to lead Arizona State to a 127-110 victory over The Citadel on Wednesday.Justice scored 13 points in the first half, when ASU built a 55-45 lead. Cunliffe scored 16 points in the second half. The Sun Devils (4-2) surpassed 100 points for the first time since 2009.Sam looked really smooth out there, ASU coach Bobby Hurley said. He looks more and more relaxed and comfortable in what were doing. Hes thrown himself into both ends of the floor.Obinna Oleka added 20 points and 15 rebounds and Tra Holder, the teams leading scorer at 17.2 points per game, scored 22.You dont come across many teams that play the style that they play and get up and down the way they do, Hurley said of the Bulldogs (3-3). It was a good game for us leading into next week in terms of the pace of the game.That first opponent next week is No. 1 Kentucky.Im scared to think of how many points they might score on us if we play defense the way we played (Wednesday), Hurley said.Arizona State took a 66-52 lead early in the second half, only to see The Citadel go on a 10-0 run to cut the lead to four with 14:01 to play.The Bulldogs, of the Southern Conference, kept it close for a good portion of the second half but could never take the lead. The Sun Devils pulled away right after the 10-minute mark.Kaelon Harris came off the bench to lead the Bulldogs with a career-high 30 points and Zane Najdawi tied his career-high with 28 points.The greatest thing is weve got nine freshmen. A lot of them got to grow up (Wednesday) and our leading scorer was a freshman, Citadel coach Duggar Baucom said. Well grow ffrom this and try to get better.ddddddddddddJustice, a part-time starter so far this season, hadnt scored more than eight points in a game this season.Its going to be my night one night, its going to be other guys nights on other night. So its not that big a deal to me, Justice said.BIG PICTUREThe Citadel: The Bulldogs entered Wednesday averaging 102.4 points per game. They scored over 100 for the fourth time this season but have given up a combined 257 points in back-to-back losses at Iowa State and ASU.Arizona State: Starting with its next game in the Bahamas, the Sun Devils will play six games in 23 days against teams that have made the NCAA Tournament with regularity in recent years. First up is Kentucky, followed by UNLV, Purdue, San Diego State, New Mexico State and Creighton.ITS Teh-SHUMP-aThe Sun Devils were hardly in danger of losing, but got one effective minute of action early in the first half from seldom-used post Jethro Tshisumpa. The 6-foot-10 freshman from the Democratic Republic of the Congo blocked three shots and made a layup to give ASU a 22-12 lead at the 13:12 mark of the first half.STAT OF THE NIGHTArizona State was 8 of 16 from 3-point range in the first half, 7 of 15 at the free throw line. The Sun Devils turned things around at the line, hitting 21 of 22 free throws in the second half.TURNING POINTA dunk by Shannon Evans off a steal by Cunliffe gave the Sun Devils an 87-76 lead with 9:04 to play, and ASU led by no fewer than eight points the rest of the way.UP NEXTThe Citadel returns home to Charleston, South Carolina for its next five games, starting with Presbyterian on Monday.Arizona State heads to the Bahamas to face top-ranked Kentucky on Monday. ASU lost at then-No. 5 Kentucky on Dec. 12, 2015, 72-58, and is 0-4 against the Wildcats since 1991.
