MANHATTAN, Kan. [url=]Brandon Knight Jersey[/url] . -- Marcus Foster scored 17 points, Nino Williams made two free throws with 5.7 seconds left and Kansas State held off No. 6 Oklahoma State 74-71 on Saturday in the Big 12 opener for both teams. Williams finished with 15 points, none bigger than his two free throws that gave the Wildcats (11-3, 1-0) a three-point lead. Marcus Smart of the Cowboys raced up court and threw up a running 3-point try as the final buzzer sounded, but it clanked harmlessly off the rim and fell to the court. Thomas Gipson added 10 points and 11 rebounds for Kansas State, which has won nine straight after losing to the likes of Northern Colorado and Charlotte earlier in the season. LeBryan Nash scored 20 points, Markel Brown finished with 16 and Smart added 15 for the Cowboys (12-2, 0-1), who were plagued by foul trouble after already missing two of their key players. Michael Cobbins, their best big man, sustained a season-ending Achilles injury on Monday, and freshman guard Stevie Clark -- their second-leading scorer off the bench -- did not play after he was arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession on Wednesday. It was a crippling start to the Big 12 season for Oklahoma State, which is hoping to challenge perennial favourite Kansas for the conference title. But it couldnt have been a much better beginning for the Wildcats, who tied the Jayhawks for the regular-season championship a year ago. The Wildcats, whove made a habit of pummeling opponents during their win streak, tried to wear down the short-handed Cowboys in the first half. They pawed and pressed and got physical with Smart and Nash as much as possible, and both of them were clearly frustrated. Both of them also picked up two fouls late in the first half. Kansas State was unable to take advantage of the brief stretch in which both sat on the bench, though. Foster scored in the waning seconds of the half to put the Wildcats in front, but the Cowboys raced up court and Brown managed to curl in a layup at the buzzer for a 38-37 lead. The senior dished a bit of attitude at the Kansas State student section as he left the floor. Oklahoma State tried to extend the lead early in the second half, and Smarts dunk and foul with about 13 1/2 minutes left provided a cushion. But Smart decided to do a chin-up on the rim and slap the backboard after his slam, and he was hit with a technical -- his fourth foul of the game. While he took a seat, the Wildcats started to gather momentum. Shane Southwell hit a 3 from in front of his own bench to knot the game 52-all with just over 9 minutes left, his first points of the game. A few minutes later, Nash picked up his fourth foul, and Cowboys coach Travis Ford put Smart back in the game. The Wildcats went right at him, and Smart wisely backed down on a couple of occasions to avoid picking up his fifth foul. That allowed the Wildcats to surge ahead, taking a 65-60 lead when Foster slashed through the lane and curled in a layup with 3 1/2 minutes remaining. That matched the biggest lead of the game for either team. [url=]Shaquille ONeal Jersey[/url] .Stanton suffered fractures in his face and other injuries when he was hit by a pitch Sept. 11. The Marlins are confident hell fully recover and be ready for spring training, and they hope to reach a long-term agreement with him. [url=]Grant Hill Jersey[/url] . The Raptors have been outscored 88-66 in the opening quarter over a three-game span to begin the month of February. Their most recent loss, 109-101 in Sacramento on Wednesday, was eerily similar to Saturdays defeat at the hands of the Trail Blazers. [url=][/url] .J. -- The New York Jets have promoted Tony Sparano Jr.They may be thousands of kilometres from their native Zurich, but Tim Wieser and Kay Schweri feel a little closer to home when the Sherbrooke Phoenix faithful wave the flag of Switzerland at Palais des Sports.Its just an amazing feeling to see that weve won over some Canadian fans here, said Wieser, who, when combined with Schweri, makes up an unstoppable Swiss dynamic duo thats been turning heads in the QMJHL this season. We are really proud to see them waving the Switzerland flag.Wieser, in his second year with the Phoenix, is tearing through opposing goaltenders like wet paper towel. The 19-year-old currently leads all QMJHL and CHL scorers with 22 goals through 20 regular-season games. His credits his sophomore success — which carries with it an eye-popping shooting percentage of 29.7 — to an off-season focused on improving his shot.But his improved production also owes thanks to Schweri, his rookie linemate, fellow countryman and longtime friend, whos assisted on more than half of Wiesers goals and himself leads all Quebec League players with 30 helpers.In this potent one-two punch, Schweri is the rigger and Wieser is trigger.Hes a very good passer, thats the best thing about him, is how Wieser describes Schweri, a 17-year-old who was skating in the Elite Jr. A Swiss League a year ago.Hes a scorer, a real scorer, is Schweris assessment of the Wieser.Mixed with top end Phoenix talent that includes projected 2015 NHL first-rounder Jeremy Roy and Montreal Canadiens draft pick Daniel Audette, the Swiss wingers have been the difference that has thrust Sherbrooke from a middling team to the top of the West Division.Heading into Fridays contest against Blainville-Boisbriand, Wieser had scored in all but six games this season, and potted four in his last outing against Rouyn-Noranda last week. Scherwi, who was tied for third in league scoring with 36 points (10 goals, 26 assists) heading into weekend play, had been held off the score sheet only four times.With their continued success, youd never guess that both players got out to rocky starts in their resspective major junior careers as they tried to adjust to life on this side of the Atlantic. [url=]Marquese Chriss Jersey[/url]. Wieser had a tough time settling in when he first arrived in Sherbrooke for training camp last season, after the Phoenix took him in the second round of the 2013 CHL import draft.Hes a family guy, so being away from home, largely by himself, and in an English and French-speaking environment (both Wiser and Schweri s mother tongue is German) left him feeling isolated.He came here and he didnt really speak any English or French, said Sherbrooke general manager Patrick Charbonneau. Through 15 games, he maybe had five points.But, Charbonneau continued, Wieser resolved to learn English, and as he gained a better command of the language, he started to better mesh with his teammates, eventually leading to a solid 44-point rookie season.Fast-forward to this season, Wieser is now taking French courses, and hes already communicating with his francophone teammates in their first language in the dressing room. Heading into play Friday, he had 34 points (22-12). Charbonneau is convinced that Wiesers progress has helped along the younger Schweri, who also struggled at his first training camp and pre-season after being selected in the first round of the import draft this summer.If you wouldve told me in September that Kay would have a (team-leading) 36 points right now, Id call you crazy, said Charbonneau. Tim has helped out a lot. It makes a big difference for how theyve adjusted.The dynamic duo have, at least, played themselves into the conversation surrounding the Swiss national team ahead of the upcoming world junior championships, said their GM.I dont choose for the Swiss team, said Charbonneau. But I think they would be part of the discussion.Both have national team experience and Wieser trained with the U20 program last year. It will be tough to deny him spot considering he leads this countys major junior ranks in scoring.I think we have a good chance to go there, weve been playing a good season so far, so well just see what happens, he said.
