Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork. Tim Horton Maple Leafs Jersey .com) - The 20th-ranked Michigan State Spartans and Marquette Golden Eagles will collide in semifinal action of the Orlando Classic on Friday at the HP Field House. The winner of this game will move into the championship game and take on either Kansas or Tennessee. Tom Izzos Spartans have lost just once this season and that was a 10-point setback to powerhouse Duke (81-71) as part of the Champions Classic. Michigan State has put that loss in the rearview mirror however, with lopsided wins over Loyola Chicago (87-52), Santa Clara (79-52) and most recently, Rider (77-45) on Thursday in this event. Steve Wojciechowski is in his first season as head coach at Marquette. The Golden Eagles have now moved over .500 at 3-2 on the year. The team came into this tournament with wins over UT Martin (79-63) and NJIT (62-57) bracketing losses to Ohio State (74-63) and Nebraska Omaha (97-89). On Thursday, Marquette was able to hold off a tough Georgia Tech team and prevail, 72-70. These two teams have some history, with this representing the 55th all-time meeting. Michigan State holds a 31-23 series advantage. The Spartans made light work of Rider in Thursdays tournament action, as they held the Broncs to their lowest scoring output in two seasons. MSU held Rider to a mere four first-half field goals and never looked back from there. The Broncs managed to shoot an anemic .258 from the floor in the game, including just 1-of-13 from behind the arc (.077). Meanwhile, Michigan State had four players notch double-digit point totals, starting with Denzel Valentines 19 points. Bryn Forbes checked in with 15 points, while Travis Trice and Gavin Schilling tallied 10 points apiece. Michigan State is getting it done with offensive efficiency and stifling defense this season. The team is shooting a scorching .505 from the floor overall and putting up 75.6 ppg, while giving up just 57.8 and holding foes well under 40 percent accuracy from the floor (.361). Although he didnt have his best game of the season against Rider, Trice still paces the team with 16.4 points and 6.4 assists per game. Valentine is next in the scoring column with 12.4 ppg, followed closely by Branden Dawson and his 12.0 ppg. Further depth comes in the form of Forbes (9.4 ppg) and Marvin Clark Jr. (9.0 ppg). It was Matt Carlinos day to shine for Marquette as the BYU transfer erupted for a career-high 38 points against Georgia Tech on Thursday. All eight of Carlinos field goals came behind the arc (8-of-14), while he went 14-of-16 at the free-throw line as well. Juan Anderson was a distant second for Marquette in the scoring column, finishing with 12 points in the narrow victory. Marquette hasnt left much of a cushion in terms of scoring margin, as the team is sitting at +0.8 through five games. The Golden Eagles are averaging 73.0 ppg on .440 shooting, but have allowed the opposition to shoot a much more efficient .498 overall. Anderson leads the team in both scoring (15.4 ppg) and rebounding (7.0 rpg) and is shooting a healthy 630 from the field. Carlinos big game has pushed him into second on the team in scoring at 14.4 ppg, followed by Duane Wilsons 10.6 ppg. Tie Domi Maple Leafs Jersey .

He played like an All-Star when the Pacers really needed it. After 48 hours of questions and criticism, Roy Hibbert scored a season-high 28 points, grabbed nine rebounds, blocked two shots and altered a handful of others to help the Pacers get even in the Eastern Conference semifinals with an 86-82 victory over Washington. PITTSBURGH -- Since Jerome Bettis retired after the 2005 NFL season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have searched for a big, bruising running back in his mould. The list of hopefuls has been long, if not particularly distinguished. Verron Haynes, Najee Davenport, Carey Davis, Gary Russell, Frank Summers, Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman all failed to consistently provide production in short-yardage and goal line situations. Enter LeGarrette Blount. The 6-foot, 250-pound veteran certainly looks the part. And while he has a long way to go to be mentioned with the likes of Bettis, there have been plenty of flashes during his four seasons in the league. Blount averaged 5.0 yards per carry while splitting time with Stevan Ridley in New England last season, and gashed the Indianapolis Colts for 166 yards and four touchdowns in the playoffs. Though second-year back LeVeon Bell remains the starter, Blount is confident he can make an impact no matter what situation. "I know they brought me in here to run the football, so I hope there are plenty of carries to go around," Blount said Wednesday. "I know that LeVeon is going to get his fair share, so I hope theres enough for all of us." Bell, last years second-round pick, missed the opening three games while recovering from a preseason foot injury. But he still played nearly 700 snaps, a heavy workload the 6-foot-1, 230-pound Bell managed with ease. Still, the Steelers will find opportunities to go from the patient and pragmatic Bell to the bruising Blount, with the emphasis on bruising. "Thats my running style," Blount said. "Thats how I run the football, and I feel like (Bell) is also a big, tough running back, too. So, thats just how this team is built, with a physical running game, and I think thats what theyre trying to get back to. So, hopefully, we can do that." Blount noted a balannced offence is needed to make a run to the Super Bowl such as the ones by Seattle and Denver last year.James Reimer Jersey. The champion Seahawks had Marshawn Lynch running the ball and Russell Wilson throwing it, while the Broncos ran the ball with Knowshon Moreno when Peyton Manning wasnt breaking NFL passing records. "I think its huge for us to (sign Blount), because Ive always said that we need to be a balanced offence," quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. "So, we need to run the ball. We need to be great at running the ball, and weve got guys that want to be great at running the ball. So, hopefully, we can do it and do it successfully." Blount added that while his body type and size make him an ideal power back, he has a variety of skill sets, such as catching the football and running away from defenders in the open field. But he certainly has proven he can run over them as well. Those attributes, combined with Bells slashing style, should give the Steelers a solid one-two punch. "I think we have a really good mix of running backs," Blount said. "(But) Ive seen the NFL Network, and they have these top 10 or top five running back duos in the NFL. I noticed that were not one of them, and I dont like it. In all honesty, I believe theyre downgrading the skill level that we have in our backfield. . I think thats kind of disrespectful." Does that mean Blount and Bell have something to prove? "Were not going to go out here and go on about how were not in that group," Blount said. "But were going to go out there and show that we belong there with our performance." NOTES: RB Dri Archer has missed the opening two OTAs, just like linebacker Jordan Zumwalt from UCLA, because his school is on the quarters system and their class has not yet graduated. . OTAs continue Thursday and also run Tuesday through Thursday next week. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
