    PITTSBURGH -- Using a barrage of 3-pointers, Pittsburgh sailed past Morehead State 76-63 on Friday night. Cheap Jerseys From China .The Panthers had averaged just 7.2 3-point field goals per game coming in, but they eclipsed that by halftime and finished 11 of 19 from long range.The Panthers used the long ball to open up a 16-point lead at the break. The Eagles chipped away early in the second half, but could only get as close as seven.I thought we did some really good things in the first half, especially in regards to shooting the ball and sharing the ball, said Pitt head coach Kevin Stallings. We moved it around and got open shots. I think thats why we shot so well from 3. I dont know that Ive ever seen a stat sheet that 100 percent of the baskets were assisted, which we were in the first half.The Panthers were able to use their size advantage and exploit the Morehead State defenses switching tendencies, which mimicked the Panthers own defense.They do a lot of switching and because we switch, we kind of knew how to beat it, said Cameron Johnson, who had a team-high four 3-pointers. We work against it in practice every day, so we just knew where openings would be against that kind of defense.Seniors Jamel Artis and Michael Young led Pitt (5-1) with 17 and 20 points, respectively.Morehead State (2-3) played its first game without head coach Sean Woods, who was suspended Tuesday by athletic director Brian Hutchison while unspecified complaints are investigated. Third-year assistant Preston Spradlin, 29, made his NCAA head coaching debut in the loss.DeJuan Marrero did the heavy lifting for the Eagles with a double-double. He was 8 of 13 for 18 points and had 13 rebounds to lead Morehead State in both categories.STAT OF THE NIGHTMarrero, a redshirt senior, played all 40 minutes for the first time in his career. Spradlin credited Marreros discipline in avoiding foul trouble while guarding larger opponents for Marrero being able to remain in the game. The Eagles were 336th in the country in personal fouls per game with an average of 25.5, but committed just 19 against the Panthers.HE SAID ITWe told our kids that if they beat us shooting jumpers, they beat us shooting jumpers. They beat us shooting jumpers. -- Spradlin on Morehead States defensive philosophy.BIG PICTUREMorehead State: The Eagles will play two more major-conference opponents this season when they visit Purdue and Mississippi State in December. Theyll hope to build from those before Ohio Valley Conference play starts.In all of them, you have to learn, Spradlin said. If youre not learning every single game, then youre not going to be very good at the end of the year and youre not doing your job as a coach.Pitt: The offenses newfound success with the 3-pointer could be a way to reduce the reliance on Artis and Young. Besides Johnson, reserve guard Jonathan Milligan also had three 3-pointers, though Stallings said he wants a better defensive performance from the junior.UP NEXTMorehead State: Returns home to face Northern Kentucky on Wednesday. The Eagles are 2-0 at home and 0-3 on the road.Pitt: Will play its first road game of the season when the Panthers visit Maryland as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Tuesday. Pitt is 1-1 away from home in a pair of neutral-site games this season. USA College Jerseys Outlet .

PAUL, Minn. ;. "Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. Dhoni runs Taylor out - without looking The day before the Ranchi ODI, MS Dhoni left Ross Taylor and Tom Latham gawking by driving past the New Zealand team bus in his hummer, with sunglasses on. On Wednesday, Dhoni left Taylor smiling wryly after running him out with a cunning back-hand flick, with sunglasses on. Taylor had just heaved a length ball to the left of Dhawal Kulkarni at fine leg. The fielder swiftly collected the ball and threw it at chest height to Dhoni, who nonchalantly deflected it back onto the leg stump - as he often does - his back facing the crease. Cue in massive cheers from Dhonis home crowd. The Mishra drop I Amit Mishra is the second-oldest member in Indias squad, behind Dhoni, and probably the least athletic of the lot. Mishras issues in the field were put in the spotlight in the seventh over. Martin Guptill, who was in the mood to hit out, had looked to shovel an Umesh Yadav slower ball straight down the ground. The lack of pace meant Guptill dragged it in the air to the left of mid-on. Mishra lumbered in, dived, but the ball merely grazed his left hand and bobbled onto the ground. Not a straightforward chance by any measure, but Mishra could have had a go had he reacted quicker.The Mishra drop II The day would get worse for Mishra in the field. After dropping Guptill on 29, Mishhra botched a much simpler catch at long-off when Guptill was on 62. Cheap College Jerseys. Seeing a short, wide delivery, Guptill belted it down the ground. It could have been a regulation catch for Mishra had he stayed on the edge of the long-off boundary. Instead, he ran in. Realising he had misjudged the ball, he did not leap as he stretched his hands upwards to intercept the ball. It wasnt enough. The ball went over his head and then plonked behind him for a one-bounce four. Scott Styris, who was on TV commentary at the time, quipped: Guptill picked out the right fielder. Guptill went on to make 72.Latham shows them how its done Latham plucked two sharp catches, which highlighted the gulf between the two teams in the field, towards the end of the chase. When Manish Pandey unleashed a fierce bottom-handed shovel against a Tim Southee slower ball in the air in the 33rd over, Latham timed his jump to perfection and took with catch with both his hands over his head at mid-on. Mitchell Santner, who was at midwicket, also leapt in his position in a neat synchronised routine. Three overs later, Latham ran to his left from wide long-off to track down a loft from Hardik Pandya with precision. Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys China NFL Gear Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Jerseys China Womens NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL T-shirts ' ' '
