TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Cheap Arizona State Jerseys Authentic . -- UConns winning streak remains alive, just barely.Napheesa Collier scored 28 points and had a big block down in the final few seconds to lead the third-ranked Huskies to a 78-76 win over No. 12 Florida State on Monday night. UConn extended its winning streak to 76 games, the third longest streak in college basketball history.Florida State had a chance to beat the third-ranked Huskies at the end, but Imani Wrights 3-pointer was short allowing the four-time defending national champions to hold on in their opener.There are a lot of happy coaches that watched tonights game saying you got out of there with that one but your time is coming, coach Geno Auriemma said.This is the Huskies first single-digit win in the regular season since a six-point victory over St. Johns in 2013. It is also the first time since the 2011 Sweet 16 against Georgetown (68-63) that they have won by five points or less.The Seminoles trailed 65-59, but had a chance to tie it with 13.7 seconds left when Brittany Brown was fouled on a 3-point attempt by Kia Nurse. She made the first two to get within 77-76, but missed the third. The Huskies could not secure the ball and FSU (1-1) retained possession when it went out of bounds.Shakayla Thomas then drove the lane, but her shot was blocked Collier. Crystal Dangerfield made the first free throw, but missed the second. Imani Wright missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.I think this kind of woke us up and showed us that we are a different team than last year. We cant just win on talent. We have to play good, fundamental basketball, said Collier, who also had eight rebounds.Saniya Chong scored 16 points and Katie Lou Samuelson added 14 for the Huskies, whose winning streak sits only behind the team record of 90 straight set from 2008-10 and the UCLA mens record of 88 consecutive victories.Wright led Florida State with 25 points while Brown added 16 points and 10 rebounds.I wish we were sitting here obviously on the other side of this having won it, Florida State coach Sue Semrau said. We gave ourselves a chance. We got the ball into two great scorers at the end. Theres no moral victory here. The victory is our growth as our basketball team.BIG PICTUREUConn: Auriemma said before the game that this was a new world they were entering after the graduations of Breanna Stewart, Morgan Tuck and Moriah Jefferson. He also said he wasnt going to judge this team based on what happened in November, but considering they were able to hold on to win at the road, that has to give his team a little bit of confidence.Florida State: The Seminoles hung tough without starting point guard Leticia Romero, who missed her second straight game with a hamstring injury.TURNING POINTThe Huskies trailed by four at halftime and then were down 37-30 with 9:08 remaining in the third quarter, which is the largest deficit they have faced during the winning streak. They then went on a 14-2 run to take a five-point lead. The Seminoles would tie it three more times in the second half but could never take the lead.Collier and Chong each scored four points during the run while Samuelson had a 3-pointer at the end.It was a miracle we were down four at halftime. They (Florida State) got everything they wanted in the first half. If we were down 14 that might have been the end, Auriemma said.STAT OF THE NIGHTFlorida State had 16 offensive rebounds but could rarely convert as it was 26 of 72 from the field. That translated to UConn having a 30-24 edge in points in the paint and 12-7 advantage in second-chance points.POLL IMPLICATIONSUConns tough week will continue with second-ranked Baylor up next on Thursday and another road game Sunday against LSU. Florida State might drop a spot or two from 12th, but proved it can stand with the best teams in the country.UP NEXTUConn: The Huskies will have their home opener on Thursday against No. 2 Baylor. UConn is 53-10 against teams in the top 10 since the start of 2008-09 season.Florida State: The Seminoles continue a string of four straight home games to start the season on Thursday against Jacksonville.---More AP college basketball at http://collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Joe Reedy on Twitter at www.twitter.com/joereedy Pat Tillman College Jersey . Tuesdays surgery at Atlantas Piedmont Hospital was performed by Dr. Xavier Duralde and Hawks team physician Dr. Michael Bernot. Authentic Arizona State Jerseys . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. http://www.cheaparizonastatejerseys.com/ .ca. Kerry,  Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count?  All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. LOS ANGELES -- From early injuries to a late-season flop, UCLA couldnt seem to catch a break last year.Coach Jim Mora is hoping the Bruins luck was just building up for this fall.And the best reason to believe UCLAs fortunes will change is the sophomore behind center.Josh Rosen is back to run a new-look offense for the Bruins, whose promising 2015 campaign was beset by injury woes and disappointing performances. UCLA still went 8-5, but lost two home games, two rivalry road games and its bowl game.Were coming off a season that was, in our estimation, a little bit disappointing to us, especially the way that it ended, Mora said. Wed like to make amends for that.The disappointment of last season, which was capped by dispiriting losses to USC and Nebraska, obscured the fact that Mora has built a durable winner in Westwood. UCLA hasnt won the Pac-12 since 1998, but the Bruins have been a contender for four straight seasons, which hadnt been true in the previous two decades.The Bruins also have Rosen, who certainly seems to be the type of quarterback who can turn a good team into a powerhouse.He passed for 3,670 yards and 23 touchdowns as a freshman, but hell have to hook up with a largely new set of receivers this fall.New offensive coordinator Kennedy Polamalu is building a run-based offense utilizing tight ends and fullbacks. The change will be significant, but it could mean big opportunities for Rosen, who will have the chance to direct the Bruins approach to a greater degree.Heres what to know about UCLA:HEALTHY AND HAPPY: UCLA never really recovered from losing three of its best defensive players to injuries early last season. Linebacker Myles Jack didnt even wait until the year ended before bolting for the NFL, but the other two are back: run-stuffiing defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes and cornerback Fabian Moreau. Wholesale Arizona State Jerseys. They rejoin a defense already returning eight starters, although their 2015 unit was porous at times.TAILBACK TRIO: Paul Perkins bolted early for the New York Giants, but three gifted tailbacks are still in uniform. Soso Jamabo, Nate Starks and Bolu Olorunfunmi all showed star potential last season while combining for 923 yards. Theyll compete aggressively for carries -- and there should be plenty, if the Bruins new offense is running properly.BIG KICK: Kaimi Fairbairn, the Pac-12s career scoring leader, is gone after four seasons as UCLAs kicker. Freshman J.J. Molson is likely to take over.SEASON OPENER: The Bruins travel to College Station for an intersectional against Texas A&M. Its a tough trip, but Moras squads have played exceptionally well in similar early-season games away from Pasadena, beating Texas, Nebraska, Virginia and Rice during his tenure. The Bruins will have to do it again two weeks later on a trip to BYU.KEY GAMES: Stanford visits the Rose Bowl on Sept. 24, giving Mora his next chance to stanch his 0-5 record against David Shaw; Washington State, which shockingly beat UCLA last season, hosts the Bruins on Oct. 15; and USC visits for the 86th crosstown showdown Nov. 19.PREDICTION: Given how many important things broke poorly for the Bruins last season, perhaps its time for things to run in the other direction this fall. With Rosen at the controls, anything seems possible for the new offense. If the defense can avoid last seasons ridiculous injuries, UCLA is capable of a 10-win season and a trip back to the Pac-12 title game. Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball JerseysCheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys AuthenticCheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
