To win this game , Purdue probably needed to dominate the backboards, take away the Jayhawks' assertiveness and hope they missed shots. "That's how they play". One of them got the better of the other, by a large margin, on Thursday. Jackson made step-back threes, dunked on a lob pass and drove for an and-one.
I am so proud. Liverpool ended the half as stronger of the two teams as City goalkeeper Willy Caballero had to produce excellent saves to keep out a curling shot by Firmino and a powerful attempt from Adam Lallana. Klopp said: "We are still in a battle and our next game is not only a derby, it is a really important game". A penalty was always likely in this game - played on a slick surface after pre-match rain - because of the last-ditch defending on show from both teams.
Mr Cameron said he had to keep his promise, having enshrined the commitment to hold a referendum in the Conservative manifesto ahead of the 2015 general election.

The 22-year-old Rahm was on the ropes early in the clash after Johnson established a five-hole lead through eight holes.

There are probably five teams fighting for that top four. And United legend Scholes believes United should ease into the next round, but he adds they must be way of Ligue 1 side Lyon.

And the Chilean's comments while on global duty seemed as if the forward was angling for a move to Stamford Bridge, which has brought up fans' memories of selling Robin van Persie to Manchester United back in 2012. "Our season will be decided by the next two months, by the ability and the strength we can show together to fight back".

Colson led Notre Dame with a game-high 18 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocked shots. "You don't like to lose; we haven't lost in a while", he said. Don't know which teams to believe in, in this insane college hoops season? Combined with Matt Farrell's first half performance (he was not good in the 2nd half), Pflueger's defense, and Matt Ryan's 9 minutes of solid basketball, Notre Dame was able to endure a bad overall team game and beat a ...
The Heels have a national semifinal to play on Saturday in Arizona, where OR will be waiting. Maye's shot came seconds after Malik Monk hit a 3 to tie the game in a wild finish between the region's top two seeds. But that was it. Florida was 0 for 14 from beyond the arc in the second half, a lot like the 0-for-17 effort the Gators had in their first meeting with SC this season.
Djokovic made it past risky Argentine Juan Martin del Potro, who shocked the Serb star in the first round of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics previous year en route to singles silver. Kerber is assured of retaking the No. 1 ranking from injured Serena Williams next week.

But Kohli was the better captain, ruled Australian Great Ian Chappell in December. "They came very close to winning the series, but did achieve Australia's first Test win in India since 2004".

Oklahoma City stormed back from a double-digit deficit behind another eye-popping performance by Westbrook to upend Orlando 114-106 in overtime Wednesday night. Westbrook seems to have a good chance to average a triple-double in one season. We went to me a lot and I didn't deliver. A battle of offensive attrition when Westbrook sits, a wave of frustration and brilliance bounded together when he doesn't, then a hold-on-to-your-butts flurry at the end as Westbrook tries to will the team to the ...
When Lacy signed with the Seattle Seahawks in free agency earlier this month, it left Montgomery as the Packers' only running back. Still, there's a big difference between the 77 carries Montgomery had in the regular season and the 239 carries that Eddie Lacy averaged per year over his first three National Football League seasons.
Wichita State and Kentucky are no strangers to winning. BIG GAME: Freshman Bam Adebayo had 15 points and 18 rebounds in an opening win over Northern Kentucky, the third-highest rebound total by a Wildcat in NCAA Tournament history.

India's cricketers celebrate after securing an eight-wicket win in the fourth and final Test against Australia on 28 March 2017.
