BOWLING GREEN, Ky. Jeremiah Poutasi Jersey . -- Montrezl Harrells sudden meltdown appeared costly for fourth-ranked Louisville until Terry Rozier stepped up to provide composure for the Cardinals. Not to mention some timely baskets and a career-high 32 points. Rozier took charge after the first-half ejection of Montrezl Harrell to score 26 points in the second half and lead the Cardinals past Western Kentucky 76-67 on Saturday. We knew it was going to be tough playing without Trez, Rozier said after making 9 of 16 from the field and 11 of 13 from the foul line. It was big losing him, so we all had to step up. I wasnt the only one making shots. We all did something. Rozier closed Louisvilles scoring with five free throws down the stretch that followed three 3-pointers to quash the Hilltoppers hopes of seizing momentum following Harrells exit with 38.7 seconds remaining in the first half. The preseason first-team All-American was assessed a flagrant-2 foul for throwing an elbow following a shoving match after a loose ball scramble. After the officials reviewed video, Harrell was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected. Western Kentuckys D.J. Clayton received a technical foul, along with technicals issued to both benches. Harrell departed with 14 points and six rebounds and apologized to his teammates at halftime. He was remorseful after the game and said his outburst was spur of the moment. It was a heated situation in a dog pile and it took a turn for the worst, honestly. It was just a bad day. ... I know I shouldnt have reacted in that way and Im truly sorry and apologize for the way I reacted. Louisvilles top player then asked Cardinal teammates to pick things up in his absence. Chris Jones added 10 points for Louisville (10-0), which made 5 of 10 from long range in the second half to keep a safe cushion against WKU (5-5). Freshman 7-footer Anas Mahmoud added six points and five rebounds as the Cardinals outrebounded their in-state rival 37-35 and made 26 of 30 free throws. We always talk about keeping a level head no matter what the environment may be, Louisville assistant Kenny Johnson said afterward in place of head coach Rick Pitino. Montrezl owned up to his part in the mistake and thats what happens in everyday life as well as in basketball, people make mistakes. Basketball is a game of adverse situations and that was an adverse situation that we had to overcome. T.J. Price scored 24 points and D.J. Clayton 14 for the Hilltoppers, who got within 73-67 with 39 seconds left before Rozier added three free throws to seal the victory in a game was at times ragged and chippy. I dont think it had anything to do with (Louisville missing) Montrezl, WKU coach Ray Harper said. It had to do with us missing free throws on the front end with one-and-ones. You cant beat good teams and shoot 60 per cent from the free-throw line. ------ TIP-INS Louisville: Rozier also had five rebounds and three steals. ... The Cardinals evened the series at 39 wins each. Western Kentucky: The Hilltoppers trailed 29-24 at halftime, their lowest first-half total this season. WKU scored 26 points against Bowling Green on Dec. 3. TEED UP Besides Harrell earning his first career ejection, WKUs Clayton received a technical foul for his part in the first-half tussle. T.J. Price and Louisvilles Mangok Mathiang received second-half technicals. Rumour MILL Jones called crazy a social media buzz this week that the Memphis native would transfer to play for the hometown Tigers. My high school coach called me to ask was I transferring and I was like, What are you talking about? the senior guard said. I havent done anything to get kicked off the team. ... It is what it is, trying to get us off focus. UP NEXT: Louisville: Hosts Cal State Northridge on Tuesday. Western Kentucky: Hosts Brescia (Kentucky) on Saturday. Blidi Wreh-Wilson Jersey . But Thames surprised his coach -- and most of the 9,602 in attendance -- when he whipped a pass to Dwayne Polee II, who drained a three-pointer with four seconds left to give the Aztecs an improbable come-from-behind 67-65 victory that extended their winning streak to 19 games. Dexter McCluster Jersey .com) - In their second game of the season, the 17th-ranked Connecticut Huskies take on the College of Charleston Cougars in the opening round of the 2014 Puerto Rico Tip-Off at Coliseo Roberto Clemente. http://www.authentictitanslockroom.com/AUTHENTIC-BLIDI-WREH-WILSON-TITANS-JERSEY/ . But it was far from an impressive performance. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Robinson Cano delivered the biggest hit of the day for the Seattle Mariners, but not before a perfectly executed drag bunt set up things against one of the best pitchers in baseball. James Jones went 3 for 4, including a bunt single that wound up in the middle of three converging players and loaded the bases for Cano, whose third-inning, opposite-field double drove in two runs in Mondays 3-0 victory over David Price and the sputtering Tampa Bay Rays. "Were a team that has to do anything to win a game," Cano said. "We dont have three or four or five guys thatll hit 30 home runs, so weve got to play the little game, do the little things." Five Seattle pitchers combined on a five-hitter, blanking the punchless Rays for the second straight days. The Mariners extended their scoreless streak to 19 innings and won for the eighth time in nine games. "Our last seven or eight starts have been pretty darn good. Our starters have given us everything weve asked them and probably a little bit more," manager Lloyd McClendon said. "With that our bullpen is even better." The Rays, whove made the playoffs four or the past six seasons, have lost 13 of 14 and are saddled with the worst record in the major leagues at 24-41. The last time they were 17 games under .500 was the end of 2007, the final year they were known as the Devil Rays. "Right now, were the worst team. I dont anticipate finishing like that ... but right now, weve earned that position," Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. "Do I believe we can turn this around? Absolutely," he said. "But right now, if youre a baseball fan watching us, and you look at everything, you have to consider us the worst team." Canos big hit came on an 0-2 pitch during a three-run third inning against Price (4-6), who struck out 10 in eight innings. The 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner has dropped three straight decisions and hasnt won in nine starts since beating Minnesota on April 22. "It just goes to show you how good this guy is," McClendon said of Cano. "Against one of the toughest lefties in baseball and down like that. ... That was a huge hit for us.. Dexter McCluster Youth Jersey. quot; Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez didnt allow a run, but failed to get through the fifth inning to qualify for the victory. The 24-year-old right-hander allowed four hits and walked five in 4 2/3 innings. Joe Beimel (1-1) retired the only two batters he faced to get the victory, and Fernando Rodney worked a perfect ninth for his 18th save in 20 opportunities. The Rays were shut out for the AL-high ninth time overall. Seattle finished a 6-1 road trip. The Mariners won three straight over Tampa Bay after dropping the opener of the four-game series. Price allowed three runs and seven hits and walked one. He has the best strikeout to walk ratio in baseball, but has also yielded a major league-leading 105 hits 99 2/3 innings. The Rays stranded seven runners and were 0 for 5 with men in scoring position through four innings against Ramirez, who entered the game with a 6.82 ERA. The frustration continued in the fifth, when Ramirez gave up a two-out double to James Loney and walked Ben Zobrist before McClendon turned to his bullpen. Beimel fanned pinch-hitter Jerry Sands, ending the threat and eliciting smattering of groans and boos from the crowd of 10,400 at Tropicana Field. "At some point, we have to get our bats alive," Maddon said. "The effort is wonderful. The work is great," the manager added. "The hits arent there." NOTES: Struggling Grant Balfour is out as the Rays closer. Maddon said the team instead will close games by committee. ... Mariners 1B Justin Smoak (sore left leg) and OF Michael Saunders (sore right shoulder) were out of the starting lineup for the third consecutive game. ... Rays rookie right-hander Jake Odorizzi (2-6) will go against St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright (8-3) in the opener of a two-game interleague series Tuesday night. Odorizzi grew up 35 minutes from St. Louis and called his start against the Cardinals a "special occasion." ... In a matchup of former teammates with Rakuten of Japans Pacific League, Mariners RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (4-2) and Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka (9-1) will start in the opener of a three-game series in Seattle. wholesale stitched jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys china ' ' '
