AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State is playing defense better than it has in years. Cheap Angels Jerseys Authentic .The Cyclones offense has been uncharacteristically sluggish at times though, putting their school-record streak in the Top 25 in jeopardy.Jacob Evans III made two free throws with 20 seconds left in overtime and Cincinnati upset No. 19 Iowa State 55-54 on Thursday night, the Cyclones second straight loss.Kyle Washington had 13 points and 10 rebounds and Evans had 11 points for the Bearcats (6-1), who also snapped Iowa States 37-game non-conference home winning streak.Cincinnati outrebounded the smaller Cyclones 46-34. It shot just 3 of 21 from 3-point range and 35.5 percent overall, but its defense stifled Iowa State -- which just 11 days ago scored a program-best 130 points.To win it when you go 3 for 21 from 3, on the road against a great team like that, and they still win the game? It says a lot about the character of our team, Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin said.Gary Clark and Kevin Johnson also scored 11 points each for the Bearcats.Monte Morris had 15 points for the Cyclones (5-2) and Matt Thomas scored 13.Iowa States Naz Mitrou-Long, who has hit a number of game-winning 3s in his career, had one rim out at the regulation buzzer. He did not score.I thought they really competed. Showed a lot of toughness, a lot of grit, Iowa State coach Steve Prohm said. They were going to try to control the tempo. The biggest key is just we werent able to get enough good, quality shots on the offensive end. Thats something Ive got to look at and do better with.The Cyclones have dropped their last two by a total of three points after a 5-0 start. But Iowa State had its worst offensive output since 2013 on Thursday, scoring its fewest points in an overtime game in 11 years.They were just tougher than us, said Darrell Bowie, who had 11 points with seven rebounds for Iowa State.THE BIG PICTURECincinnati: The Bearcats were active in disrupting Iowa States often-lethal transition offense and kept the Cyclones (5 of 21 on 3s) from getting good looks beyond the arc. This win will look really good on their postseason resume.Iowa State: The Cyclones might have issues with bigger teams like Cincinnati all season. Iowa State thrives behind a deep and talented backcourt, but the Bearcats were often able to make it a half-court game and disrupt the Cyclones ball movement -- although the absence of promising freshman forward Solomon Young didnt help.POLL IMPLICATIONSIowa State has been ranked in 60 consecutive polls, third-best nationally behind Kansas and Arizona. That could end on Monday -- though losing on a neutral floor to Gonzaga by two last week and to one to the tough-minded Bearcats certainly doesnt mean the Cyclones are in trouble quite yet.BALL MOVEMENTIt was the key to the game, because Cincinnati had it and Iowa State didnt. If you move the ball, and you move people around, youre a much harder team to block out, Cronin said when asked about his teams dominance on the offensive glass. The Cyclones had just five assists on 22 baskets -- an extremely low number for a team with Morris, an AP preseason All-America. forced a missed jumper ahead of Evans game-winner, and all Iowa State could get on its final possession was a deep, off-balance 3-pointer by Mitrou-Long.UP NEXTCincinnati hosts Bowling Green on Sunday.Iowa State hosts Nebraska-Omaha on Monday, a tune-up for Thursdays road game at struggling Iowa.---More college basketball at ;Wholesale Angels Jerseys . He says so-called TRT is only one problem and he wants to go even further than the ban. "Its about time," St-Pierre told reporters at a promotional event in Montreal on Friday.

Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland.

Catch all the action on TSN2 at 11pm et/8pm pt. The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. Team Sky boss Sir Dave Brailsford has defended the decision to get special permission for Sir Bradley Wiggins to receive injections of a banned drug before three major races - insisting the team had done nothing wrong.Wiggins use of the powerful anti-inflammatory drug triamcinolone on the eve of the Tour de France in 2011 and 2012 and the Giro dItalia in 2013 was revealed when a group of Russian computer hackers starting leaking the medical data of dozens of top athletes almost a fortnight ago. Wiggins won the Tour in 2012.The 36-year-old British star applied, and was granted, three therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) to take the drug to deal with a pollen allergy that aggravates his long-standing asthma condition.But triamcinolone has also been widely used as a doping agent by riders, including Lance Armstrong, and is believed to help athletes lose weight, fight fatigue and aid recovery.Wiggins TUEs, which were stolen from the World Anti-Doping Agencys computer servers by the so-called Fancy Bears international hack team, were approved by cyclings world governing body the UCI and there is no suggestion that he or the team have broken any rules.But that has not stopped both the rider and Team Sky facing a barrage of criticism from inside and outside the sport, particularly given the teams much-publicised zero tolerance attitude towards doping, and Wiggins own comments about drugs cheats and the use of needles in his autobiographies.Brailsford told the BBC: What were talking about here is Bradley having a need, the team doctor supporting that, an expert giving their opinion that this is the medicine that is required, and that then going to the authorities who say we agree with you, and heres the certificate that gives you the permission to use that medication. Cheap MLB Jerseys. Ive got trust in (the TUE) process and the integrity of that process.Its not one person making that decision. Its not the rider or the team doctor, who is picking the medication. They have to seek permission to use it and they were granted permission.Critics have pointed out that Wiggins breakthrough performance as a road cyclist at the 2009 Tour, when he came third, was achieved using less powerful medication via an inhaler. That form of asthma therapy no longer requires a TUE as there is no evidence of wider performance enhancement.However, Brailsford added: With the information that I had at the time, five or six years ago, with the information that was presented to me, and the expert opinion and the whole integrity of the process, I would make that decision again.He also rejected any comparisons with former dopers.Certain dopers, who cheated with a cocktail of drugs, claim they used this and abused it for performance enhancement - thats not the the case here, said Brailsford, before adding that the team has only been granted 13 TUEs in their seven seasons of racing.When asked if the public can still believe what theyre seeing, Brailsford said: 100 per cent you can trust in Sky, absolutely 100 per cent. Its the very essence of why we created this team in the first place.However, he acknowledged: Certainly, going forward, there is a broader argument about should TUEs be made public, and were looking at it. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
