RIMOUSKI, Que. [url=http://www.cheapairjordanretro.com/]Cheap Air Jordan Free Shipping[/url] . - Anthony DeLuca scored four times and Alexis Loiseau set up each of them as the Rimouski Oceanic came from behind to beat the visiting Charlottetown Islanders 5-3 on Sunday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Last season as a rookie DeLuca scored 22 goals in 67 games. This season he already has 15 goals to go along with 11 assists in just 17 contests. Jan Kostalek also scored for the Oceanic (9-5-3), who trailed 3-1 after 40 minutes. Jack Nevins, Yan Pavel Laplante and Matthew Bursey scored for the Islanders (10-5-1), who have dropped their last three games. Rimouskis Philippe Desrosiers earned the win by stopping eight shots in the third period. Desrosiers replaced starter Zachary Fortin, who allowed three goals on 14 shots. Charlottetowns Eric Brassard stopped 42-of-46 shots in a losing cause. The Oceanic went 1 for 5 on the power play while the Islanders failed to score on two chances with the man advantage. --- REMPARTS 4 OLYMPIQUES 2 QUEBEC CITY — Fabrice Herzog scored twice and Callum Booth made 29 saves to lead the Remparts past Gatineau. Maxime Chevalier and Zachery Moody each added a goal for Quebec (8-5-3), while Nick Sorensen chipped in with two assists. Vaclav Karabacek and Vincent Dunn scored for the Olympiques (12-6-0), and Robert Steeves stopped 20 shots. Quebec was 1-for-2 on the power play, while Gatineau went 0-for-5 with the man advantage. --- VOLTIGEURS 5 CATARACTES 1 DRUMMONDVILLE, Que. — Olivier Caouette, Matthew Boudens, and Sergei Boikov each had a goal and an assist to lift the Voltigeurs over Shawinigan. Jeremy Auger and Joey Ratelle also scored for Drummondville (10-6-1), which has earned at least one point in four straight contests. Nicholas Welsh scored for the Cataractes (2-13-2), who are last in the QMJHL standings. Joe Fleschler made 24 saves for the Voltigeurs. Shawinigans Storm Phaneuf stopped 27 shots in defeat. --- PHOENIX 3 WILDCATS 2 SHERBROOKE, Que. — Francis Desrosiers made 39 saves as the Phoenix handed Moncton its third straight defeat. Dominic Talbot-Tassi scored the eventual winner midway through the third period for Sherbrooke (5-11-2) while Vincent Deslauriers and Jean-Francois Plante had the others. Mark Simpson and Kyle Haas supplied the offence for the Wildcats (7-11-1). Monctons Alex Dubeau stopped 28 shots in a losing cause. --- HUSKIES 5 FOREURS 4 VAL DOR, Que. — Jean-Sebastien Dea scored three goals as Rouyn-Noranda edged the Foreurs for its third win in a row. Dillon Fournier scored once and set up two more for the Huskies (10-5-2) and Julien Nantel had a single goal. Louis Marcotte led Val-dOr (9-8-0) with three goals and Anthony Mantha had three assists. Pierre-Maxime Poudrier added the other. Rouyn-Norandas Alexandre Belanger earned the win by making 34 saves. Val-dOrs Francois Tremblay gave up five goals on 20 shots in a losing effort. --- ARMADA 3 TIGRES 1 VICTORIAVILLE, Que. — Etienne Marcoux turned away 33 shots as Blainville-Boisbriand regained top spot in the QMJHL standings by downing the Tigres. Olivier Picard, Ryan Tesink and Daniel Walcott scored for the Armada (13-1-1), who have a one-point lead over the Baie-Comeau Drakkar atop the league standings despite playing three less games. Luc Deschenes scored for Victoriaville (8-7-1), which is winless in its last four outings. Charles-Olivier Lajoie stopped 22-of-24 shots for the Tigres. --- [url=http://www.cheapairjordanretro.com/]Wholesale Air Jordan Shoes[/url] . Not only that, when Julian de Guzman first stepped on the pitch for Deportivo de la Coruna he became the very first Canadian to play in Spains top tier. [url=http://www.cheapairjordanretro.com/]Air Jordan Retro Shoes Outlet[/url] . Al Harrington, another former Knicks forward, scored 22 of his 24 points after halftime for the Nuggets, allowing them to withstand Anthonys attempt to rally the Knicks after his poor shooting had them behind until the final minutes of regulation. Anthony finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds, missing 20 of 30 shots in the Knicks sixth straight loss.

But this down? Meanwhile, defending champion Connecticut, SMU, Nebraska and UCLA have also started slowly after being ranked in the preseason polls. Only two of the eight teams listed above made my initial NCAA Tournament projection bracket (listed below), but the start of conference play will allow these squads to play themselves back into the tournament discussion. And why cant they? Seven of these teams sport upper-tier head coaches, with several of them Hall- of-Famers or future Hall-of-Famers. Nebraskas Tim Miles is the lone omission. Theres still plenty of time to fix the kinks. And if any of these teams play their way into the tournament dont be surprised if any of them makes a run. Since the tournament expanded to 68 teams in 2011, five double-digit power conference teams have reached the Sweet 16 -- Stanford (10 - 2014), Tennessee (11 - 2014), Oregon (12 - 2013), North Carolina State (11 - 2012) and Marquette (11 - 2011). Double-digit power conference teams are also 13-13 in the second round. Although the Big Ten is down, if Michigan State, Nebraska and Michigan can finish around the 9-9, 10-8 range in conference, that should get them in, although the Spartans are in a better position than the Wolverines and Huskers. The same could be said for ACCs Syracuse, SECs Florida and Pac-12s UCLA. Connecticut and SMU may have a tougher task. Theyll most likely have to sport better in-conference records because the league theyre in arent as deep as the Big Ten, ACC, SEC or Pac-12. Connecticut and SMU might have to get to 12-6 or 13-5 to receive an at-large bid. The Mustangs went 12-6 in the AAC last season and werent selected into the tourney field. Michigan might be the most erratic team of the bunch. John Beilein had to replace four major components and the top two scorers from last years Elite Eight team, but the Wolverines still have versatile scorer Caris LeVert and the 3-point shooting ability of Zak Irvin. They were a top-20 team in the preseason polls, but a mid-December swoon has Michigan scrambling for answers. The Wolverines had a fine showing at the Legends Classic in late November at Barclays Center, narrowly falling to Villanova in the title game. But they dropped four straight coming off a home win against Syracuse on Dec. 2. Michigan suffered a head-scratching home loss to NJIT (RPI 190) before following with another clunker in Ann Arbor to Eastern Michigan. Michigan was routed at Arizona and fell to SMU on Dec. 20 at Crisler Center. The Wolverines opened Big Ten play with a home overtime win against Illinois, but followed that up with a road loss at Purdue. The Spartans are without three starters and the top two scorers from their Elite Eight squad a year ago. Coach Tom Izzo said before the season that his team has upside, but theyve yet to play up to it. That was evident in a 71-64 overtime loss to Texas Southern (RPI 124) on Dec. 20. The Spartans began their league slate with a double-overtime loss to Maryland in what couldve been a solid win to put on their resume. Jacob Kurtzs accidental last-second tip-in of Devon Bookerts miss in a loss to in-state rival Florida State on Wednesday has exemplified Floridas season. Also Wednesday, Daniel Hamiltons trio of free throw misfires in the waning seconds of UConns loss to Temple in overtime was a perfect description of the Huskies year. They just havent been able to close. UConn had Texas beat until Jonathan Holmes knocked down a left corner 3-pointer with two seconds remaining to lift the Longhorns on Nov. 30. The same result happened in its next game when Jack Montagues late triple lifted Yale past the Huskies. The Gators and Huskies clashed Saturday in Gainesville, with the Huskies picking up a much-needed victory. The quartet of Scottie Wilbekin, Casey Prather, Will Yeguette and Patric Young set a school record with 120 career wins, 13 NCAA Tournament victories and four straight Elite Eight appearances -- 2013 Final Four visit. But those are four stalwarts Florida no longer has. The Gators have looked a lot better since a 3-4 start, rattling off four double-digit victories in a row prior to the FSU and UConn defeats. They dropped a 69-67 decision to in-state rival Miami-Florida in their second game of the season and lost a pair in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament -- Georgetown and North Carolina. UF also held a 39-24 halftime advantage against Kansas, but was outscored 47-26 over the final 20 minutes en route to a 71-65 defeat. Florida has a trio of talented guards in Kasey Hill, Eli Carter and Michael Frazier to go along with Dorian-Finney Smith. Its the development of former McDonalds All-American Chris Walker, though, that might propel UF into the Big Dance. Hes yet to show the potential, but its time for him to make his mark. He was suspended for three games earlier this year for a violation of team rules after having to wait until the conclusion of the first semester to see court time last season. A year removed from a postseason ban due to poor APR scores, Connecticut quickly made up for lost time by hoisting its fourth NCAA Title since 1999 last season. But gone is Shabazz Napier. The Huskies still have Napiers runnning mate from a year ago, Ryan Boatright, and the shot-swatting presence of Amidah Brimah. [url=http://www.cheapairjordanretro.com/]Authentic Air Jordan Retro[/url]. NC State transfer Rodney Purvis is also a key cog. Due to being in a poor league, UConn scheduled a tough non-conference slate that included Duke, Texas, Florida and Stanford. The Huskies have to beat Stanford later this month to get some resume credibility with a lack of opportunities in the AAC. Two years ago Michael-Carter Williams led Syracuse to the Final Four and Tyler Ennis helped the Orange to a 28-6 mark a year ago. Thats a pair of NBA first- round talents. This season at point guard? Well, another freshman, but Kaleb Joseph still has a lot to learn. Joseph had his best game of the season Dec. 20 in an overtime loss to Villanova. He recorded 10 points and 10 assists, but that was after an eight-turnover performance against Louisiana Tech. The Orange dont own any bad losses like Michigan or Michigan State and a victory over Iowa may turn into something by seasons end. In potential games to boost their resume, Syracuse fell to California in the semifinals of the 2K Classic, at Michigan, at home to St. Johns and at Villanova. The expectations for the Mustangs in June were a lot higher than they were in early November. That was before Emmanuel Mudiay, arguably the No. 1 point guard in the country and a top-five pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, decided to take his talents to China. In September, it was found that Texas Tech transfer Jordan Tolbert would lack the necessary hours to graduate from SMU in one year. He will not play for the school this season. SMUs starting big man Markus Kennedy was then ruled ineligible for the first semester in mid-November, but was cleared to return on Dec. 19. The talent is still there to make the tournament. Nic Moore, Sterling Brown and Keith Frazier make up a formidable backcourt. Like Syracuse, SMU doesnt have any bad losses. The Mustangs began 2-3 with losses at Gonzaga, at Indiana and home against Arkansas, but it ripped off eight consecutive victories prior to losing at Cincinnati -- a critical chance in conference to put a top-50 win on the resume. For the last two seasons Kyle Anderson was a 6-foot-9, do-everything guard/forward for UCLA, leading the team in rebounds (8.8 rpg) and assists (6.5 apg) to go along with 14.6 points per game. Zach LaVine and Jordan Adams were also NBA first-round picks that the Bruins had to replace. UCLA, which advanced to the Sweet 16 in coach Steve Alfords first season, is led by his son Bryce. The Bruins are also guided by senior Norman Powell and talented freshman Kevon Looney. UCLA has yet to post a signature win and lost the first two games of its Battle 4 Atlantis tournament to Oklahoma and North Carolina. The Bruins have also recently lost to Gonzaga at home, Kentucky in Chicago, at Alabama and suffered a 71-39 blowout loss to Utah in the early stages of Pac-12 play. Nebraska was predicted to finish last in the Big Ten last season but instead ended fourth in the standings. With loftier expectations this season, its been a different story. The Huskers dropped a home game to Incarnate Word on Dec. 10 and fell to Hawaii in the Diamond Head Classic. Nebraska also has losses at Rhode Island and home to Creighton. Its lone key win was a double- overtime thriller against Cincinnati on Dec. 13. Nebraska has the talent to make a move in the Big Ten, Terran Petteway and Shavon Shields make up a solid duo, but this is uncharted territory for the program. Ultimately, five of the eight teams listed could make the tournament. Just too much talent and coaching experience for these squads to not make the Big Dance. I also think the bubble could be rather weak this season. Nebraska, UCLA, Connecticut and SMU could be in trouble. Nebraska isnt used to being in this position, while the Bruins, Huskies and Mustangs may have problems because the conference theyre in. But UConn is likely the best team in the AAC and should get in by winning its conference tournament. Notes: RPI rankings are as of Jan. 4. Projected bracket features predicted conference champions.
