How Wofford’s Fletcher Magee went from two-handed shots to one of college basketball’s best shooters

With over six seconds remaining in Wofford’s then-tied matchup at Georgia Tech on Dec. 6, junior Fletcher Magee jumped in front of a pass intended for his teammate Storm Murphy. A few dribbles with his left hand, followed by a crossover. Finally, a step-back three-pointer that sunk through the net.
Youth Replica Majestic Johnny Pesky Green Jersey - #6 MLB Boston Red Sox Salute To Service
He (Bufton) came in and told me, ‘You’re a decent athlete, but if you want to play in college and after it, you’re going to have to be an amazing shooter,’ Magee said.

Initially, he runs misdirection along the baseline before receiving the ball from the wing, as the forward delivers a fake screen. Once Magee obtains an inch of space, he’ll quickly rotate behind the center’s screen and pull-up. Young deemed him and Cochran as the best runaway shooters he has ever coached.

Guys that can run away from the basket, catch the ball and turn 锟斤拷 essentially while in the air, Young said. Gets his shoulders squared and gets himself turned to the basket. It’s a beautiful shot. There aren’t many that can do that. It takes a great deal of balance and lower-body stability.

Magee added that he must keep opponents off balance, with teams constantly switching on ball screens to stick with him.

You look at how they’re gonna guard you and how you’re gonna cut differently, if you’re gonna be physical or quick, he said.

Thanks to the win, the United States now leads 锟斤拷 at least for now 锟斤拷 Group B with a total of four points. Team USA nabbed three Carl Davis Authentic Jersey points due to its regulation win on Friday morning.

The United States got the scoring started seven minutes into the opening frame. Donato put Team USA up 1-0 on an early power play after linemate Troy Terry placed a perfect drop pass off a rush. Donato followed up the USA push and was in the perfect place for Terry’s pass as he fired the puck past Slovakia goaltender Jan Laco:

The lead didn’t last long for the Americans, however, as the Slovakians scored 25 seconds later. An impossible angle goal was made possible by a deflection off Andrej Kudrna’s stick in front. Zapolski was unable to control the puck as it slipped through his arm before he could close down the net.

Now doubt them Cowboys!

What a week for the Cowboys. Ezekiel Elliott finally got tackled by the judicial system and began his six-game suspension. Jerry Jones and Atlanta’s Arthur Blank, on opposite sides of an ownership feud regarding Roger Goodell’s contract, avoided each other before the game. And then the Cowboys had to face the Falcons.

Dallas took a quick 7-0 lead on a Dak Prescott touchdown run following a Xavier Woods interception. From there, it was a disaster all the way to the final gun for the Cowboys in a 27-7 loss that dropped them to 5-4, three games south of the Eagles, who they meet next Sunday night in Arlington, Texas.

Last month, the Cowboys were 2-3 after a loss to the Packers and had equaled their 2016 loss total a mere five weeks into the new season.

Then came a bye week, after which they’ve won three consecutive games. What’s eye-opening about the state of the 5-3 Cowboys is what Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali told the Dallas Morning News after Dallas defeated the Chiefs last week.

“I think that’s the best team in the league,” Hali said. “Credit to the team. They played really well and that’s a really good team … 13 wins last year.”

Considering the Eagles have the best record in the NFL at 8-1 and lead the NFC East, those were some strong words from Hali.

Did you realize the Dolphins are 13-4 in their past 17 regular season games? Adam Gase knows what he’s doing. Losing Jay Cutler won’t hurt, given Matt Moore’s ability to step in and run the offense.

31. Ndamukong Suh, defensive tackle, Dolphins (24): Despite concerns the mercurial star might become the next Albert Haynesworth and coast after getting a six-year, $114 million contract, Suh was steady and productive for Miami last season with six sacks and 16 starts. But he’s still as volatile as ever, which means you never known when he’s going to decide to stomp on an opponent’s leg (or other body part).

There was no more upsetting story to come out of last Sunday’s games than what occurred with the Steelers and their offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva in that botched pregame national anthem maneuver in Chicago.

The most disappointing element was not Steelers coach Mike Tomlin keeping his players in the locker room during the anthem, it was the embarrassing fallout from Villanueva, a former Army Ranger who toured several times in Afghanistan, standing alone outside the tunnel in Chicago with his hand over his heart — then having to explain himself afterward.

That Villanueva was left feeling guilty about letting his teammates down was preposterous. You can make a pretty sound argument that he’s done more for his country than every player not just on his team but every NFL team combined.

We haven’t talked about the Ravens much this season, mostly because they have been mired in mediocrity.

Since that 2014 season, during which the Ravens went 10-6, they have gone 5-11 and 8-8 and have curiously fallen off the NFL playoff radar. That could change in the next six weeks, because the Ravens’ remaining schedule is among the easiest in the league.
Youth Crockett Gillmore Limited White Nike Jersey: NFL Baltimore Ravens #80 Road Vapor Untouchable
The Ravens’ final six opponents have a 25-35 record (.416). They play four of their last six games at home and face just two more teams with winning records (the Lions, who are 6-4, and the Steelers, who are 8-2).

Elite Mens Matt Forte Jersey If the Jaguars can remain consistent on offense, their defense is the stingiest in the league, allowing an average of 15.7 points per game, sure looks like playoff material.

When we last left the Jags before last week’s bye, they were sacking Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett 10 times. They have 33 sacks through seven games, which has them on pace for 75, which would break the NFL record of 72 set by the 1984 Bears.

One can now accurately predict the repetitive nonsense we’ll hear after most every play. Sunday against the Rams, Philadelphia QB Carson Wentz threw a bad pass, prompting FOX’s Joe Buck to the clich锟斤拷d and unnecessary, Carson Wentz would love to have that one back.

Troy Aikman followed with the useless filler observation that we’ll now see what the Eagles dial up on their next play.

NFL Draft’s best story: Cancer survivor teams ‘were scared of’

Unquestionably, one of the best stories in this NFL draft involves running back James Conner, whom the Steelers drafted in the third round, No. 105 overall, out of local University of Pittsburgh. Conner is a cancer survivor, having overcome Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

He played at Erie McDowell High School, played at Pitt and now is a Steeler.

Seats will definitely be warm in Tampa next year, but the Bucs could surprise as a post-hype sleeper in the deep and dangerous NFC South. It doesn’t hurt to point out there are three playoff teams in the division either, so give some of the blame for this season to tough circumstances.

Elite Mens Landry Jones Jersey Rodgers himself announced Thursday that the surgery had gone well with a hospital-bed Instagram post in which he used the hashtags #comebackstartsnow and #riseagain. However, there were conflicting reports Sunday about whether he would be able to come back in 2017. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that doctors think Rodgers will be able to begin throwing again in six weeks; the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says that the team believes he may not play against this season and it won’t know for sure for weeks.

The Packers lost to the New Orleans Saints, 26-17, with Brett Hundley in for Rodgers. They head into the bye week with a 4-3 record, then play the Lions, Bears, Ravens, Steelers, Bucs and Browns before the possibility exists John Wall Authentic Jersey of having Rodgers back, with the Vikings and Lions up after the Panthers.

Ravens lash out at shifted Sunday NFL schedule

Playing their best football at just the right time, the Baltimore Ravens need only to beat Cincinnati at home on Sunday to reach the playoffs for the first time in three years.
Women's Majestic Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim #5 Albert Pujols Replica White/Pink Splash Fashion MLB Jersey
Baltimore will be without special teams standout and backup cornerback Jaylen Hill, who tore his ACL and MCL against the Colts.

A non-contact injury, and just unfortunate for him, Harbaugh said. He’s a tough young man and was really working hard on special teams, developing as a defensive back.

Harbaugh said it’s possible that cornerback Robertson Daniel will be activated from the practice squad.

Also, the Ravens hope to have back receiver Jeremy Maclin, who missed Saturday’s game with a knee injury.

The tax break has supercharged the increase in values of all professional sports teams, experts said.

For NFL team owners, the tax break has added roughly 5 percent to team values 鈥?or about $122 million, based on an average franchise value of $2.44 billion, according to Forbes.
Authentic Youth Chuck Bednarik Jersey
The tax break, and others, and how each NFL owner has benefited from them came into focus this week after President Trump 鈥?as part of a long-running battle with the league and its players over kneeling during the national anthem 鈥?tweeted a threat about the league’s massive tax breaks.
Game Womens Ryan Suter Jersey
Change Authentic Thon Maker Jersey the tax law! Trump tweeted.

When the tax break was first introduced in 1946, it was aimed at players’ contracts, which, it was argued, were of diminishing value.

The IRS agreed, and courts have supported the position.

Cantor alleges that Faulk asked her deeply personal and invasive questions regarding her sex life, fondled her breasts, and groped her butt.

Also named is another analyst, Ike Taylor, who the filing indicates sent Cantor sexually inappropriate pictures of himself and a video of him masturbating in the shower. Donovan McNabb, a former analyst, has also been included in the filing.

The move was an attempt to make replay rulings more consistent and more accurate.

When the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2018 is announced, Ray Lewis and Randy Moss have a chance to join a relatively exclusive club: first-ballot inductees. Over the past 10 classes, there have been 16 first-ballot modern-era inductees, or less than two per year. And that’s fitting, because to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer — to get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame without waiting more than the minimum five years after retirement — means, to me, having a seminal impact on the game.

But then Blandino abruptly left the NFL to become a rules analyst for Fox, and the league promoted Al Riveron to replace him. The hope was that the transition would be seamless, given that Riveron had been by Blandino’s side assisting him on replay rulings and other key tasks.

The transition has not been seamless. A number of replay rulings this season have raised eyebrows in and around the league, most recently the decision to overturn a touchdown catch last weekend by the Buffalo Bills’ Kelvin Benjamin. Bills owner Terry Pegula went public this week with his dissatisfaction, saying that the NFL must fix its replay system.

Ben Roethlisberger had the benefit of better wideouts overall — plus running back Le’Veon Bell — to make spectacular catches in tough coverage and traffic. The Jaguars still won with Brown and Bell going off, and they’ll expect to be fine in the bigger picture even if Lewis and Gronk do some damage.

TE Dwayne Allen: He has not been a big part of the Patriots’ passing game, but he has been a great fit for their blocking, delivering on the level of Gronk in that capacity. It won’t take more than, say, three catches for 30 yards for Allen to have considerable contributions to a few scoring drives.

You talk about a guy who has overcome adversity — Watt turned himself from a walk-on at Wisconsin into the premier defensive player of his time. To see his true impact, look beyond sacks: Opponents try to double- and triple-team him, but Watt is a disruptive force who turns the ball over and is the most dominant player in the league when healthy.

Hey, even defensive whiz Schaefer himself probably wouldn’t enjoy trying to scheme against a team like his Bulldogs.

He has William, the hero of last season’s NCAA tournament run, steadily guiding the team at point guard. She had five assists Sunday and has 91 on the season; her assist-to-turnover ratio (4.1) leads the SEC.
Limited Rasul Douglas Youth Olive Nike Jersey - #32 NFL Philadelphia Eagles 2017 Salute to Service
There’s Schaefer’s daughter, Blair, known for her 3-point shooting. She has a team-high 50 treys, with four coming Sunday. There’s Johnson, the fifth-year senior in her second season playing for Mississippi State after spending two years at Oklahoma State. She had 16 points against Tennessee and is averaging 11.9 this season, up from 6.3 last season when she mostly came off the bench.

Limited Kids Tyrann Mathieu Jersey Buccaneers: Are there any more Redskins castoffs on their way to Tampa? Maybe not. But getting wide receiver DeSean Jackson and defensive lineman Chris Baker, both of them exiting Washington, helps plenty. Jackson’s big-play capabilities should aid the ongoing progression of quarterback Jameis Winston, and Baker is a very effective player who probably deserves more recognition than he’s received so far.

Mike Glennon: Glennon might succeed in Chicago where Jay Cutler failed as the Bears’ starting quarterback. He might not. Either way, his bank account will be plenty healthy with his approximately $15 million-per-season deal, awarded after spending half of his four years in Tampa doing next to nothing as Winston’s backup.

Falcons (5-4): Not to get too Fancy Stats on you, but here’s something that could portend good news for Atlanta. The Falcons currently lead the league in net yards per play, as their offense is gaining 1.1 yards per play more than their defense is allowing. The last team to lead the NFL in net yards per play and not make the playoffs was the 2010 Chargers. But man, that remaining schedule: at Seattle on Monday night, home against Minnesota on Dec. 3, two games against New Orleans, season finale against the Panthers.

Limited Kids Luc Robitaille Jersey There are excuses abound for Gurley’s all-time bad 2016 season. A poorly schemed offense, terrible offensive line, and loaded boxes all played a part. Gurley’s vision was also disastrous, so he shares a good deal of the blame. The worrisome thing about his breakout is that those vision concerns still persist, but he’s simply Dave Robinson Authentic Jersey being put in more situations where it doesn’t matter.

If defense does win championships, the Jaguars are in for a successful season.

Jacksonville is allowing a league-low 1.0 points per drive in 2017, the third fewest points allowed per drive since 2002. One of the teams ahead of them, the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0.89), ended the year as Super Bowl champs. The other, the 2005 Chicago Bears, made the playoffs but lost in the divisional round to the Carolina Panthers.
Youth Rees Odhiambo Limited Olive/Gold Nike Jersey: NFL Seattle Seahawks #70 2017 Salute to Service
The Jaguars boast a fearsome defensive line that is the league’s third-best pass-rushing unit per Pro Football Focus, with defensive end Calais Campbell credited with 11.5 sacks on the season, tying him for the league lead with Dallas’s Demarcus Lawrence. They also have the NFL’s best secondary, a ball-hawking crew that is limiting opposing quarterbacks to a league low 64.5 passer rating against.

And unfortunately I have to mention the 1975 NFC divisional playoff win for Dallas over Minnesota Joseph Young Jersey on Roger Staubach’s last-minute Hail Mary to Drew Pearson (with an assist from Pearson’s uncalled offensive pass interference on the play).

The Patriots are all over the list of late-game postseason heroics, including their first Super Bowl win, after the 2001 season, when a Tom Brady-led drive resulted in the game-winning, 48-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri on the final play to upset the Rams. There was Malcolm Butler’s Super Bowl-saving interception in the final seconds three years ago to beat the Seahawks. Then last year’s Super Bowl record-setting 25-point comeback to stun the Falcons in overtime on James White’s TD run.

In addition, a huge emphasis from Coughlin was to not beat ourselves — to not allow a bad play to take us out of the game. So many of New England’s victories have come from opponents blowing it, making game-changing mistakes. In Super Bowl XLII, Manning largely just stayed away from the Patriots’ dominant cornerback, Asante Samuel. It was a mindset of, We’re not going to throw in his direction, so don’t even look over there.

The NFL, according to The Washington Post’s Mark Maske, seems to believe that the last-minute intentional-grounding call that pushed the Redskins out of field goal range and led to overtime during Sunday’s loss in New Orleans was erroneously called. Quarterback Kirk Cousins wasn’t under pressure as he threw the ball to the sidelines, with the implication that he thus should not have been whistled for the crucial call.

Game Youth Tyrunn Walker Jersey Presented with that information Monday morning, Cousins didn’t feel much better.

‘We can’t have the inmates running the prison’: Anti-protest NFL owners are fighting a losing battle

The NFL’s owners met earlier this month to discuss how they should handle the continuing protests of the league’s players during the playing of the national anthem. The two-day meetings, which included a session attended by owners and a group of players, ended without the league enacting a mandate that players stand for the anthem.
Nike NaVorro Bowman Men's Black Elite Jersey: #53 NFL San Francisco 49ers Rush Vapor Untouchable
The decision not to enact an anthem mandate was hashed out during the second day of the meetings at a New York hotel, one day after the owners and players sat down to talk with one another. Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder was the first to speak out in favor of making the players stand, alleging the protests were hurting his team’s bottom line.

Then it was McNair’s turn to support Jones, who had promised to bench any of his players if they protested during the anthem. The Texans owner, who donated millions to the presidential campaign of NFL antagonist Donald Trump, echoed many of the same points about how the player protests were having a negative impact on the league’s bottom line.

We can’t have the inmates running the prison, McNair said, a comment that stunned some in the room, according to ESPN’s reporters.

A: James had the most votes among fans, so he will get the first pick. He must choose among the eight other starters who were voted into the game. Other than James and Curry, the starters are: Kyrie Irving, DeMar DeRozan, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Jacoby Ellsbury Youth jersey Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. All the starters must be taken before the reserves are picked. So these eight guys will be the first picks.

Elite Womens Cornellius Carradine Jersey Q: What about the reserves?
Limited Kids Marquette King Jersey
A: Curry gets to pick first among them, and James follows until each has picked seven. In other words, Curry will get pick No. 8 for the last starter and No. 9 for the first reserve, while James will get picks No. 7 and No. 10. The rule that each team must have three guards has been dropped.

A: Technically, James gets the final pick in the All-Star draft, but effectively, Curry will decide who James gets at No. 22 because he will take pick No. 21, leaving James with the final player.

Texans players upset at the comment reportedly considered walking out of the team’s practice facility Friday.

Can Blake Bortles play with consistency? When the Jaguars went 3-1 in December with wins over the Colts, Seahawks and Texans, Bortles completed nearly 69 percent of his passes. But then he was 15 of 34 with two interceptions in a regular-season-ending loss to the Titans.

While the Jaguars have beaten the Bills and Steelers so far in the playoffs, Bortles has made more plays with his legs than his arm. He is just 26 of 49 (53 percent) for 301 yards and two touchdowns, but most important has not turned the ball over. He will need to continue to take care of the ball against the Patriots but must also find more consistency as a thrower.

After the comment was reported by ESPN, McNair apologized for it. Some players, including wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, did leave. McNair met with Texans players Saturday and expressed regret about his remark. He said in another written statement that he his remark was meant to refer to the owners’ relationship with the league office.

Malcolm Jenkins against Rob Gronkowski — Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz will have more to worry about than Gronkowski with Brady running the offense. The Eagles will certainly try to pressure Brady with Fletcher Cox, Chris Long and Derek Barnett up front, but Brady has a quick release and will push the ball downfield.

While Danny Amendola made several clutch catches in the 24-20 win over the Jaguars and Dion Lewis has been dangerous all season, the key to stopping the Patriots will be containing Gronkowski.

The big Patriots tight end missed the second half of the AFC championship game and the Patriots won the Super Bowl last year with an injured Gronkowski shelved. Assuming he’s cleared from Sunday’s concussion over the next two weeks, Gronkowski figures to be a big factor in New England’s game plan. Stopping Brady won’t be easy, but Gronkowski was New England’s leading receiver all season and has to be priority No. 1 for the Eagles.

Q: Will James snub Irving?
