TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona coach Sean Miller likens the top-ranked Wildcats size and power to a running team in football: The longer an opponent plays against it, the more it wears down. The Washington Huskies found out just what he means. Nick Johnson scored 24 points, Aaron Gordon had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Arizona pulled away late for a 71-62 victory Saturday. "Sometimes the story line is a little different at halftime than it is at the end of the game because you can kind of wear that opponent down and the carries that go for 2 or 3 yards in the first half break wide open in the second," Miller said. "You just have to stay with it." The Wildcats did and are off to their best start since the 1931-32 team opened with a school-record 16 straight wins. It wasnt easy. One of the best rebounding teams in the country, Arizona (15-0, Pac-12) had a hard time keeping the Huskies off the glass or from scoring inside in a tight first half. The Wildcats turned up the defensive pressure in the second half, particularly on the perimeter, to stretch the lead in the final 3 minutes. Arizona had 10 dunks among its 24 field goals and hit 7 of 8 free throws in the final 2 minutes. T.J. McConnell overcame a poor-shooting game with six assists, five rebounds and four steals while teaming with Johnson to hound the Huskies at the top of Arizonas defence. "Thats what good teams do, nettle through adversity," said Johnson, who hit all six of his free throws in the closing minutes. "They are a good team. Their record may not sure it, but they are good. We knew that going into the game. We made our run and made our shots when it counted." The Huskies didnt. Washington (9-6, 1-1) kept up with the bigger Wildcats well into the second half behind good shooting and strong inside play. The Huskies went cold down the stretch, though, shooting 10 of 33 in the second half while missing all seven of their 3-point attempts. C.J. Wilcox led Washington with 20 points. Perris Blackwell had 12 points and 12 rebounds and knocked around Kaleb Tarczewski inside, helping to hold Arizonas centre to seven points on 2-of-10 shooting. "When they took the lead, I feel that we got away from the things we were trying to do defensively and offensively," Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said. "We had to hit home runs every time we took possession of the ball and I dont think we accomplished that." Washington had a tough non-conference schedule and opened Pac-12 play with an impressive road win, racing past Arizona State early for a 76-65 victory. The Huskies faced a much stiffer challenge against Arizona. The Wildcats have been No. 1 for a month and have one of the nations best defences behind a group of versatile, athletic players. Arizona was at its defensive best in its conference opener Thursday, setting McKale Center records by holding Washington State to 25 points, nine field goals and 20 per cent shooting. The Huskies were able to keep up with the Wildcats in the first half, scoring inside and outrebounding them to lead 35-33. "We missed a couple easy shots that we normally convert and we need to convert in the future," Miller said. Washington took a quick six-point lead in the second half, but Shawn Kemp Jr. fouled out with 10:37 left, leaving their Huskies with one of the few players who could match up with Arizonas size. The Wildcats also turned up the defensive pressure, holding the Huskies to one field goal in a 10-minute span. Gordon was quiet in the first half and, at the urging of his coaches, became more aggressive, scoring some big baskets while grabbing 10 rebounds. Johnson was good at both ends, following a 360 dunk in the first half with a couple more acrobatic moves in the second. He and McConnell also keyed Arizonas defensive effort in the second half, creating havoc and steals with their constant pressure. Washington point guard Nigel Williams-Goss had a hard time shaking Arizonas two best perimeter defenders, hitting 4 of 12 shots for nine points while committing three turnovers. "Its tough going against their defence with our small lineup, but we just needed to work," Wilcox said. "In the second half, they were relentless and thats one of the main reasons why they are No. 1 in the country." Christian Jones Jersey .

I wondered how NHL coaches would feel about a playoff schedule that allowed them to open a best-of-seven series on the road, which many claim to favour, yet still gave them the precious home-ice edge for a seventh game.

Steve has built a solid reputation throughout the years - first as a hockey player, then as an NHL general manager and now as a scout.TORONTO - Twenty-four hours after being caught up in Wednesdays shooting at Parliament Hill, the Toronto Maple Leafs were back on the ice at their practice facility trying to get back to the business of playing hockey.However, following an hour-plus on-ice workout on Thursday, it was clear the attack that saw 24-year-old Cpl. Nathan Cirillo lose his life was still weighing heavy on the players minds.Its scary because the guy was what? 24-years-old? Thats how old I am, said centre Nazem Kadri. It definitely puts things into perspective and certainly way too young to go.The Leafs were in the midst of normal game day preparations at the Westin Hotel, which adjoins the Rideau Centre mall across the street from the National War Memorial, when news of the shooting broke.Basically the TV was out our window, that was basically what had developed, Kadri said. News cameras all outside and ambulances — basically what was on the TV was right outside our window. We kind of got a double dose of it.Head coach Randy Carlyle was at the Rideau Centre when he heard of the news.Those are tough and trying situations that every individual has his own way of dealing with, he said. How traumatic it was and how close it was — I guess it made us all aware were all vulnerable in these situations.Carlyle, who spent parts of six seasons in Pittsburgh as a player, added the Penguins decision to sing the Canadian anthem prior to their game Wednesday night shows the closeness of the hockey community.Thats the hockey world, its one big family and when things like that do take place it shows the unity that the league does possess, he said. Its a great tribute on behalf of the Pittsburgh hockey club and their fanss.ddddddddddddForward Joffrey Lupul had a view of the situation from his hotel room window.We were watching it unfold on TV and could see a little bit from our hotel room, Lupul said. As a Canadian its something that you dont expect to happen. It caught me off guard and the first little while was just kind of surreal and then we started seeing it unfold on TV.The scheduled game for Wednesday night between the Leafs and Ottawa Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre was eventually postponed. It has since been rescheduled for Nov. 9 — two days before Remembrance Day.We werent allowed to leave the hotel so it was pretty hard to imagine playing at that point, Lupul said. I think that was probably in Ottawa the last thing on peoples minds.Theres time throughout the year and well make up the game. Hopefully be able to do something special on that night to honour some of the heroes from (Wednesday).Lupul is part of an initiative with the Leafs called Lupes Troops, which provides tickets, jerseys and food at every home game to current members of the Canadian Forces.Wednesdays news hits closer to home for the Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., native.Just like anyone in this room, our hearts go out to the soldier that lost his life and I understand he has a young child and thats tough to hear about, Lupul said. Obviously the troops are at every game and hopefully well be able to do something a little special Saturday.I know that the people will give them a pretty good reaction Saturday.The Leafs resume their regular season schedule Saturday when the Boston Bruins visit. The team hasnt released plans as of yet, but says it will recognize Wednesdays tragedy prior to the opening faceoff.
