LEXINGTON, Ky. Jasper Brinkley Jersey . —Kyle Wiltjers
first 3-pointer gave him a feeling Friday would be a pretty good night. His
instincts were spot-on. The sophomore forward sank a career-best seven
3-pointers for a game-high 23 points to lead No. 3 Kentucky to a 101-49 rout of
Lafayette. Wiltjers shooting set the tone for an amazing offensive night for the
Wildcats (2-1), who hit 40 of 62 attempts (65 per cent), including 11 of 19 from
behind the arc. He finished 7 of 11 on 3-pointers, including 5 of 8 in the
second half. “I tried to go hard in shootaround,” Wiltjer said, “and coach (John
Calipari) always said if you have a good shootaround you have a good game. I try
to have that approach every game and come out confident, and tonight I was just
fortunate to have some (shots) fall.” Wiltjer set the tone for a game that
involved contributions from Kentuckys heralded freshmen class. Alex Poythress
followed up his 20-point effort in Tuesday nights 75-68 loss to No. 9 Duke by
hitting nine of 10 shots for a career-high 22 points to go with five rebounds.
That didnt stop Calipari from getting on Poythress case, but it had the desired
effect. “He just expects more out of me,” Poythress said. “Hes just trying to
pull it out. I dont blame him.” Nerlens Noel added 15 points and seven rebounds,
Willie Cauley-Stein 14 and Archie Goodwin 13. Graduate transfer Julius Mays had
10 of the Wildcats season-best 23 assists. “We passed the ball to each other,
shot a pretty high percentage from both the 3 and (the field),” Calipari said.
“Were not a 57-, 58-per cent 3-point shooting team but I believe were a 40 (per
cent team).” The Wildcats (2-1) won their fourth home opener under Calipari and
10th in the past 11 seasons. They also improved to 9-1 against the Patriot
League. Tony Johnson scored 13 points for Lafayette (1-2), which lost leading
scorer Dan Trist to a sprained ankle during the morning shootaround. The win
opened a three-game homestand for Kentucky, which was coming off a fairly solid
effort against Duke. The Wildcats shot 49 per cent in that game, including 4 of
10 from 3-point range, and were nearly even on rebounds (31-30) against a
veteran Blue Devils squad. And the confidence gained from cutting a 14-point
deficit to three before losing carried over against Lafayette, which was playing
its first ranked opponent since an 86-41 loss to No. 6 Villanova on Nov. 20,
2010. The Wildcats came out hot, hitting their first five shots and six of seven
overall. Wiltjer started it with consecutive 3-pointers, Mays added one of his
own and Kentucky was on its way to its best first half this season. “The skys
the limit,” Noel said of his teammates play. “They can play real hard. Its not
going to be long before things are clicking.” The Wildcats ended up hitting
their first five 3-point attempts and six of eight to highlight a 20-of-31
shooting (65 per cent) effort in the first half. Their previous best was 58 per
cent in the opener against Maryland. More pleasing to Calipari was how well his
seven-man rotation spread the ball around. Everybody scored, with Poythress
muscling inside for 12 points, Noel adding nine and Cauley-Stein and Wiltjer
eight each. Despite starting without their best scorer, the Leopards were
unfazed by height and talent disadvantages and stayed close—albeit briefly.
Levi Giese and Joey Ptasinski both sank 3-pointers, Alan Flannigan got an inside
basket and Tony Johnson another off a Noel goaltending call. That made it 15-10
but it was all Kentucky after that. A 7-2 spurt was followed by 15 unanswered
points over a 3:34 span for a 37-12 lead. Lafayette rarely got closer than 20.
With their tallest player being 6-foot-10 Ben Freeland, there was little the
Leopards were going to do against the Wildcats inside duo of 6-10 Noel and
7-foot Cauley-Stein to begin with. And other than a couple of sloppy stretches
by Kentucky, Lafayette struggled to keep up athletically. Losing the 6-9 Trist
made things even tougher. He scored a career-high 30 points to lead Lafayettes
98-94 overtime win over LIU-Brooklyn on Monday and was expected to counter some
of Kentuckys scoring. “You need a post presence, you need someone you can throw
it into,” Lafayette coach Fran OHanlon said. “Dan Trist has been scoring the
ball very well for us. Im not sure hes going to be getting 20 points against
Kentucky, but he gives us an inside presence, and then he makes our outside a
little bit better. “We are a much better team with Dan Trist. Were not Kentucky
good, but we are much better.” His presence might not have helped the Leopards,
who shot just 40 per cent and committed 28 turnovers. The Wildcats outscored the
Leopards 50-18 in the second half. Erin Henderson Jersey . —Patrick Willis had
no chance last December to do his part in stopping Marshawn Lynch and helping
keep San Franciscos impressive streak alive: 36 straight games without allowing
a 100-yard rusher. Percy Harvin Womens Jersey . —As far as
Aaron Rodgers is concerned, the five big guys who will line up in front of him
Sunday compare favourably with any offensive line he has played behind during
his time in Green Bay. http://www.minnesotavikingsroom.com/chris-cook-jerseys
. Ty Lawson scored 32 points, fellow spark plug Corey Brewer added 18 and the
free-wheeling, too-young-to-scare Nuggets forced a Game 7 in their first-round
playoff series with a dominating 113-96 win Thursday night. Cris Carter Jersey . Thats because the Reds
ran into a hot pitcher in Mike Fiers of the Milwaukee Brewers and Baker knew
there was not much his hitters could do against him. Fiers took a perfect game
into the seventh inning to lead the Brewers to a 3-1 win over the Reds. Fran Tarkenton Jersey . Cross-country skier

Sept. SAKHIR, Bahrain—World champion Sebastian Vettel took pole position for
the first time this season in edging Lewis Hamilton at the Bahrain Grand Prix,
where security remained tight on Saturday amid expectations of fresh
anti-government protests. Vettel, whose best finish this year was second at the
season-opening Australian Grand Prix, clocked 1 minute, 32.422 seconds in his
Red Bull. As he finished his final lap, Vettel yelled through the team radio
“Yes, yes, we did it.” For much of the day drivers struggled in 43-degree (109
F) temperatures and winds whipping up sand from the surrounding desert, but
Vettel produced his 31st career Formula One pole and second in Bahrain. “It
feels great and I completely owe this one to the team,” said Vettel, whos under
pressure to match his success of 2011 when he won six of the first eight races
and made the podium 17 times. The Germans time was 0.98 seconds quicker than
series leader Hamilton, who like Vettel is looking for his first win of the
season. Hamilton has finished third in all three races this season. Vettels Red
Bull teammate Mark Webber was third followed by the Hamiltons McLaren teammate
Jenson Button. Hamilton was able to overtake Webber on his final qualifying lap
and said he was relishing the chance to take on the two Red Bulls. “Ive put the
car on the front row at every race this year, and I feel this was one of my best
qualifying performances so far. I feel I got everything out of the car,”
Hamilton said. “Fingers crossed for tomorrow: Both Red Bull drivers will be very
hard to beat in the race, but were less than a tenth (of a second) behind on
race pace. The start could be key.” Mercedes Nico Rosberg, who won his first F1
race in China last week, had a disappointing qualifying after clocking the
fastest time in the final practice. He will start fifth. “As we have been
focusing on our race pace, there is always a compromise in the qualifying
set-up,” Rosberg said. “I think that Im in a good position for the race. I am
the only driver in the top five who has a set of new option tires which can be
very useful at this circuit.” His teammate, seven-time world champion Michael
Schumacher, didnt get past the first qualifying session and will start 18th
after enduring problems with his DRS rear wing flap. “I am obviously very
disappointed,” he said. “Unfortunately on my fast lap, which was looking quite
good, my DRS broke in the last sector. Josh Robinson Jersey. We tried to fix it in
the garage but were not able to go out again.” Toro Rossos Daniel Ricciardo will
start sixth in the highest grid position of his short F1 career. Ferraris
struggles continued. Fernando Alonso qualified ninth, although he didnt run in
the final qualifying session in order to save a set a tires for the race, which
is expected to be particularly hard on tires. Felipe Massa was 14th. Both
drivers have won twice here in Bahrain but the team admitted another win was
unlikely. “In all honesty, this result matches our expectations,” team principal
Stefano Domenicali said. “Certainly we cant be happy about these positions,
quite the contrary in fact: We are the first to be disappointed, but our
potential today is what it is and now we must try and get the most out of it.”
Pastor Maldonado of Williams was penalized five grid places after replacing his
gearbox, and will start 22nd. In contrast to Ferrari, Red Bull finally appeared
to have sorted out the balance problems that were blamed for them missing out on
the podium in the last two races. “The boys havent had much sleep the last few
races—it was a tough race last weekend in China and now here, so its good to
put the car on pole for them,” Vettel said. Hamilton leads the driver standings
two points ahead of Button, who won the season-opening Australian GP and
finished second in China. Alonso, who won the Malaysian GP, was third, followed
by Webber and Vettel. Bahrain authorities opened an investigation on Saturday
after the body of a man was found near the scene of Fridays clashes between
protesters and security forces—in an area about 20 kilometres from the
circuit. Opposition groups claimed the man was killed by riot police in another
possible blow to the Gulf nation as it struggles to quell unrest during the
highly awaited return of the race after it was cancelled last year. Bahrains
King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, who will attend the race on Sunday, expressed
support for the grand prix on Saturday and insisted the government was
“committed to further reconciliation and reform in the kingdom.” “I also want to
make clear my personal commitment to reform and reconciliation in our great
country,” he said in a statement. “The door is always open for sincere dialogue
amongst all our people.” ’ ’ ’
