Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork. Brad Wing Giants Jersey .com) - In the consolation round of the Progressive Legends Classic, the 14th-ranked VCU Rams will try to bounce back against the Oregon Ducks at the Barclays Center. VCU did not fare so well in the first contest of this two-day event, falling in embarrassing fashion against 12th-ranked Villanova on Monday (77-53). The loss spoiled an otherwise strong start to the campaign for the Rams, who are still 3-1 overall. They have back-to-back road games against Old Dominion and Illinois State to deal with following this bout. Oregon fell for the first time this season on Monday night, suffering a 70-63 loss at the hands of 19th-ranked Michigan in the semifinals of this event. The Ducks had rattled off victories over Coppin State (107-65), Detroit (83-66) and Toledo (78-6 leading up to the encounter with the Wolverines. They will play 11 of their next 12 games at home, beginning against Portland State on Sunday. This is the first meeting between these two teams, who have been among the nations best in recent seasons. The Rams run on creating turmoil on defense and they just couldnt seem to do it against Villanova. VCU forced only nine turnovers and allowed the Wildcats to shoot an even 50 percent from the floor. Too many of Villanovas scores came from close range, with the victors owning a 42-30 scoring edge in the paint. VCU didnt do very well to keep up, making only 37.3 percent of their overall shots, including a dismal 2-of-17 effort from 3-point range. Melvin Johnson and Briante Weber each scored 13 points in the losing effort. Surprisingly enough, the Rams 3-1 start has been predicated on offensive success more so than defensive strength. They are scoring 82.8 points per game on 45.2 percent shooting, although they were far from those numbers on Monday night. Johnson (17 ppg) and Treveon Graham (14.5 ppg, 7.2 rpg) are the most dangerous offensive weapons, while Weber (11 ppg, 5 rpg, 4.7 apg, 4.3 spg) is a jack of all trades. There were certainly some positives to be taken away from the game, but in the end, Oregon did not do enough to defeat Michigan. The Ducks owned the interior, with a 41-29 edge in rebounds and a 34-26 scoring advantage in the paint. However, they shot just a 39 percent from the field while being nearly doubled up in points at the free-throw line (23-12). Joseph Young was the leading scorer once again, netting 20 points, but he made only 5-of-16 shots from the floor, including a dismal 2-of-9 outing from the 3-point line. Dillon Brooks (14 points, seven rebounds), Elgin Cook (13 points, six rebounds) and Dwayne Benjamin (eight points, 11 rebounds) were instrumental in ensuring the Ducks had an edge on the inside. Young (24.5 ppg, 4.5 apg) is easily the top scorer on the roster, although he seems to have developed a bit more skill as a distributor this season, at least based on early returns. Brooks (13 ppg) and Cook (12.8 ppg) are the other double-digit scorers on the roster, with Benjamin (7.5 ppg, 9.2 rpg) scoring when he needs to, but making more of an impact on the glass. Randy Bullock Jersey . Once again, the third baseman delivered in a big spot. Ramirez kept up his torrid hitting with a two-run homer to help back Wily Peraltas solid start, and the Brewers extended their winning streak to seven with a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night. Michael Strahan Giants Jersey . - After sewage backups, toilet overflows and foul smells surfaced the past two years, nothing at the Oakland Coliseum surprises the home team anymore. http://www.giantsapparelsshop.com/phil-simms-giants-jersey-c-14/ . The Rainbow FlickNext up is the Rainbow Flick, or as you probably know it, the trick that everybody at soccer camp thought they knew how to do.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Toronto Maple Leafs hope to pick up where they left off before the Olympic break when they visit the John Tavares-less New York Islanders in Thursdays clash at Nassau Coliseum.Toronto was one of several NHL teams that had hot streaks interrupted by the NHLs Olympic break. The Maple Leafs had won five of six right before the hiatus and the club is 11-2-1 over its last 14 games.With 70 points, the Maple Leafs are currently holding on to the seventh of eight playoff spots in the East. Toronto also is just one point in back of both Tampa Bay and Montreal for second place in the Atlantic Division. The top three teams in each division get an automatic bid to the postseason.Toronto is aiming to qualify for the postseason for the second straight spring. Last season the Leafs halted the longest playoff drought in franchise history by making the postseason for the first time since 2004.The Maple Leafs emerge from the break with a road-heavy schedule ahead of them over the next few weeks. Toronto, which is just 11-12-5 as the away club this season, will play two straight and eight of its next 10 on the road.The Islanders, meanwhile, get to continue a five-game homestand on Thursday, but theyll do so without the services of captain and star centerman Tavares.Tavares helped Team Canada win the Olympic tournament, although he missed the semifinals and gold medal game after suffering a partial tear in the MCL of his left knee. Sterling Shepard Jersey. Although the injury was originally feared to be worse, it will still keep Tavares sidelined for the remainder of the regular season. However, he will not need surgery as was originally believed.The culmination of the regular season could mark the end of the 2013-14 campaign for the Islanders, who are already 14 points out of the Easts final playoff berth.Tavares, who expects to miss 8-to-12 weeks while recovering, is New Yorks leading scorer with 66 points and is tied for the team lead with 24 goals. He is also third in the NHL in points.The Islanders lost seven of eight games before the break in a stretch that did serious damage to the clubs postseason chances. Without Tavares, the club expects to have a difficult time getting back into the thick of the playoff race.New York and the Leafs have split two meetings so far in 2013-14, but the Isles are 4-1-1 over the last six encounters between the clubs. Toronto, however, has won three straight and four of the past five games at the Coliseum.The Isles are 8-14-8 as the host team this season. The club is playing the third test of its five-game homestand tonight and will complete the stay on Long Island after welcoming New Jersey and Florida on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
