    No. Alex Bregman Jersey . 22 Creighton came close to scoring more than 115 points for the first time in more than 30 years Sunday.Curious observers will be interested to see if the Bluejays can crack the 115-point mark Monday night when they face Ole Miss on Monday night in the championship game of the Paradise Jam tournament at St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.Creighton (4-0) set a tournament record for points when it advanced with a 112-94 victory over North Carolina State. It was the most points scored by the school since getting 115 against former Missouri Valley Conference rival Indiana State on Jan. 19, 1985.The outburst was the fifth-highest total in school history and followed a 103-point showing in the opening round against Washington State. In those games, the Bluejays shot 58.3 percent (80 of 137) and made 52.5 percent (21 of 40) of their 3-pointers.Cole Huff scored 20 points Sunday and has 39 points in the tournament, making him a candidate to be named MVP of the event. Huff was one of six Bluejays in double figures Sunday, including leading scorer Marcus Foster.Creighton, with its high-scoring offense is on the verge of winning the schools fourth regular-season tournament title under coach Greg McDermott.Our pace in our transition game really impacts (the opponents) choices to go to the glass, McDermott said. Because if they dont get it, were going to get downhill in a hurry. Thats a credit to our rebounders, our outlet guys. Our wings are doing a great job running the floor.A win on Monday also would give Creighton its fifth 5-0 or better start under McDermott. It would also mark the second time a current Big East Conference school won the tournament.Ole Miss (4-0) has not approached triple digits in the tournament, but its offense has been pretty good through four games. The Rebels advanced to the title game with an 81-68 win over Saint Josephs on Sunday.The Rebels reached at least 80 points for the fourth consecutive time, due in part to the best game of Sebastian Saizs career. Saiz, a senior forward, helped the Rebels improve to 21-8 in regular-season tournaments under coach Andy Kennedy by getting 26 points and 12 rebounds.Leading scorer Deandre Burnett scored 20 points after collecting 41 points with nine 3-pointers in the opening-round, 95-88 overtime win over Oral Roberts.We were giving up a lot of free opportunities in the last game Saiz said. We used the mentality of nothing free tonight. I knew they were going to try to double-team me, but I was ready for it. I knew they werent going to be able to stop me.Before advancing to the title game Sunday, the Rebels needed to rally from a five-point deficit Saturday against the Golden Eagles. And even before reaching St. Thomas, Ole Miss rallied from nine-point deficits against Massachusetts and Tennessee-Martin in its first two games.It just shows how resilient this team is, Burnett said after the win over Oral Roberts. It shows we can battle and be resilient down the stretch. We fix a couple of things, and well be pretty good.If Ole Miss wins, it would be 5-0 for the first time since 2013-14.Monday will be the second meeting between the schools. Ole Miss recorded a 75-68 victory in the semifinals of 2014 Emerald Coast Classic in Florida, the schools last win over a ranked team on a neutral court. Jose Altuve Jersey . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night. Jimmy Wynn Jersey . Coach Mike Munchak says Fokou stretched ligaments in his left knee Oct. 13 against Seattle, which could keep out up to five weeks even though the linebacker didnt need surgery. ;. Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. ORLANDO, Fla. -- ??? The ACC is moving its 2016 football championship to Orlandos Camping World Stadium.The conference made the announcement Thursday about the Dec. 3 game.Orlando emerged as a possible location after the ACC joined other sports leagues in pulling out of North Carolina amid backlash over controversial state House Bill 2.The law requires transgender people to use restrooms at schools and government buildings corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates. It also excludes gender identity and sexual orientation from local and statewide antidiscrimination protections.The ACC Championship Game had been scheduled for Charlottes Bank of America Stadium, where it had been held since 2010. The announcement came 15 days after the conference decided to pull 10 neutral-site championships from North Carolina. That decision came days after the NCAA said it would relocate its championship events from the state.This will be the sixth time the league holds its title game in Florida, having played it in Jacksonville from 2005-07 and in Tampa in 2008 and 09.Charlotte had been a convenient, successful host the past six years, drawing an average crowd of nearly 70,000. With four ACC teams in the Top 25 -- No. 3 Louisville, No. 5 Clemson, No. 12 Florida State and No. 14 Miami -- this years matchup figures to be worthy of its prime-time slot on either ESPN or ABC.Duke coach David Cutcliffe, whose Blue Devils played in the 2013 championship game in Charlotte, called that city an incredible location.Its sad for me that its moved out of a venue that we were fortunate enouggh to play in once so far, but no question that the state of Floridas got a lot of ACC fans, Cutcliffe said. Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey. Were an East Coast conference, so I think it still represents our conference well.Details were scarce about the process by which the ACC selected its new title-game location, with Commissioner John Swofford saying in announcing the move from North Carolina that the league had reached out in a small way to potential hosts but acknowledging there were probably limited possibilities without identifying them.Orlando immediately emerged as an obvious choice.The city annually hosts two bowl games with ACC ties -- the Citrus and Russell Athletic bowls have agreements to take its teams -- and this year an opening game between Mississippi and Florida State was played at the 65,000-seat stadium formerly known as the Florida Citrus Bowl.The only problem was, the Florida High School Athletic Association had booked Orlandos stadium for some of its championships that weekend, but the FHSAA announced it would push those back until the following weekend to free up the venue for the ACC. Orlando has played host to the high school championships since 2007.Being able to keep this tradition alive and add another major sporting event is a win-win for our community, Mayor Buddy Dyer said.The league has not announced the new sites for the other championships it pulled from North Carolina, including womens basketball in March and baseball in May. Cheap Jerseys Online NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys White NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Online NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Store Discount Jerseys Cheap Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys White ' ' '
