Lexington, KY (SportsNetwork. Custom Indians Jersey .com) - The top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats will continue their season-long eight-game homestand on Wednesday night when they welcome the Columbia Lions to Rupp Arena for non-conference action. Columbia has gotten its season off to a strong start with wins in five of its first seven games. The Lions recently wrapped up a four-game homestand at 3-1, which included their most impressive showing of the season on Saturday in a 61-39 romp of Bucknell. Kentucky is the nations unanimous No. 1 team and has won each of its first nine games by double-digit margins, most notably asserting its dominance over fellow top-10 teams Kansas (72-40) and Texas (63-51). The Wildcats made easy work of Eastern Kentucky on Sunday, 82-49. The programs met just once before way back in 1948, with Kentucky claiming a 76-53 decision. Although the Lions held just a six-point halftime lead in their most recent contest, they pulled away from Bucknell in the second stanza and eventually settled in on a 23-point victory. They shot 44.9 percent from the field in the victory, including 10-of-22 from 3-point range, while holding Bucknell to a mere 28.3 percent shooting and two long-range buckets. Maodo Lo was the spark plug with 20 points on 4-of-6 from beyond the arc. Cory Osetkowski was also impressive, stuffing the stat sheet with 12 points, 12 rebounds, six assists and three blocks. On the season, Columbia shows very little explosion offensively, as it shoots 41.3 percent from the field for only 59.0 ppg, but luckily it is able to make up for it with an outstanding effort on the other end of the floor in allowing a mere 50.0 ppg on 37 percent shooting. Lo is the unquestioned go-to scoring option with 16.1 ppg on 16-of-46 from 3-point range, and hes also a great defender with 2.7 steals per game. Osetkowski is a dependable presence in the paint with 8.9 ppg and 8.1 rpg, but he shoots less than 40 percent from the field. The Wildcats have barely broken a sweat this season, and their contest with EKU earlier in the week was no different. They outshot their opponent from the field in the 33-point triumph, 56.9 percent to 26.1 percent, and dominated the rebounding battle, 48-28. Karl-Anthony Towns was 8-of-9 from the field for 19 points to go with nine rebounds and four blocks. Trey Lyles came off the bench to log a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, while Willie Cauley- Stein and Marcus Lee netted 11 and 10 points, respectively. Kentucky has established itself as the best team in the country thanks mostly to a suffocating defense, as it ranks as the nations best both in terms of scoring (45.8 ppg) and field goal percentage defense (.279). The squad can also put points on the board at will with 77.6 ppg on 47.7 percent shooting, and it boasts outstanding margins in terms of rebounding (+12.3) and turnovers (+6.2). Only Cauley-Stein (10.3 ppg, 6.6 rpg) and Dakari Johnson (10.0 ppg, 6.7 rpg) score in double figures, but the Wildcats have an incredibly deep roster, with seven players scoring 7.7 ppg or more and nine at least 5.0 ppg. Towns (9.4 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 2.8 bpg) is off to a great start as a freshman, and Aaron Harrisons point total (9.3 ppg) will go up once he corrects his shooting woes (.344). Ben Revere Nationals Jersey . A few well-chosen words of encouragement from manager Kirk Gibson didnt hurt. Hill hit a two-run single in the 12th inning and Miguel Montero homered, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday. Bob Feller Indians Jersey . On Friday night, Kuznetsov began compiling the North American version of his greatest hits -- posting three assists for his first NHL points in the Capitals 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Greg Maddux could break a 22-year-old record Wednesday, though he wont become the first unanimous selection in the history of the baseball writers Hall of Fame ballot. When Tom Seaver received 425 of 430 votes in 1992, his 98.84 percentage topped the mark set by Ty Cobb in 1936. A dominant pitcher when offence ruled in the Steroids Era, Maddux has a chance to enter Cooperstown with a little extra bit of fame. "I just have just never come across any human being, whether theyre a voter or just a fan, that doesnt think Greg Maddux is a Hall of Famer and one of the greatest pitchers who ever pitched," The Boston Globes Nick Cafardo said Tuesday. "I cant imagine someone not voting for him. So I would guess that hes going to break Seavers record." Maddux is among three high-profile players on the Baseball Writers Association of America ballot for the first time, joined by former Atlanta Braves teammate Tom Glavine and Chicago White Sox slugger Frank Thomas. Holdovers include Craig Biggio, who topped voting at 68 per cent last year, 39 votes short of the 75 per cent needed for election. It was only the second time in four decades the BBWAA failed to elect anyone. Ken Gurnick of, a former reporter for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, said Tuesday the only player he voted for was Jack Morris, on the writers ballot for the 15th and final time after falling 42 votes shy last year. "To me, I didnt exclude Maddux. I excluded everybody from that era, everybody from the Steroid Era," Gurnick said. "It wasnt about Greg Maddux, it was about the entire era. I just dont know who did and who didnt." Gurnick said Morris also was the only player he voted for in 2013 and added he intends to abstain in future elections. "Some people quibble over when the era starts, but the bulk of his career was in my opinion well before all of the widespread use of performance-enhancing drugs," Gurnick said. Given that 569 ballots were submitted in 2013, Maddux likely could be omitted from six this year and still break Seavers record. Back in 1992, Seaver was left off by Paul Hagen of the Philadelphia Daily News, Bob Hertzel of The Pittsburgh Press and freelance writer Bob Hunter. They all submitted blank ballots to protest the decision by the Hall of Fame board of directors to bar Pete Rose from the vote because of his lifetime ban from baseball following a gambling probe. Retired writers Deane McGowen and Bud Tucker also did not vote for Seaver. "If it had cost Seaver anything, yeah, I prrobably would regret it at some level, but it didnt really cost him anything," Hagen, now with MLB. Cal Ripken Orioles Jersey. com, said Tuesday. "He still got the highest vote (percentage) total ever, and he wouldnt have been unanimous anyway." The Steroids Era has impacted the vote totals of players with stellar statistics. In initial appearances last year, Mike Piazza was at 57.8 per cent, Roger Clemens at 37.6, Barry Bonds at 36.2 and Sammy Sosa at 12.5. Mark McGwire received 16.9 on his seventh try. The Baseball Think Factory website compiled votes by writers who made their opinions public, and with 161 ballots had Maddux at 99 per cent, followed by Glavine (96), Thomas (91) and Biggio (79). The websites count had Piazza (68), Jeff Bagwell (61) and Morris (60) falling short along with Tim Raines (55), Bonds (42), Clemens (41), Curt Schilling (37) and Mike Mussina (29). McGwire (14) and Sosa (8) had little support. Eighth on the wins list with a 355-227 record and a 3.16 ERA over 23 seasons, Maddux won four consecutive Cy Young Awards from 1992-95 and a record 18 Gold Gloves with the Chicago Cubs, Atlanta, the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego. An eight-time All-Star, he won at least 13 games in 20 straight seasons. Among pitchers with 3,000 innings whose careers began in 1921 or later — after the Dead Ball Era — Madduxs 1.80 walks per nine innings is second only to Robin Roberts 1.73, according to STATS. Glavine, a 10-time All-Star and a two-time Cy Young winner, was 305-203 over 22 seasons. At the induction ceremony in Cooperstown on July 27, Maddux and Glavine figure to join their former manager Bobby Cox, elected last month by the expansion-era committee along with Joe Torre and Tony La Russa. A two-time AL MVP, Thomas hit .301 with 521 homers and 1,704 RBIs in 19 seasons with the White Sox, Toronto and Oakland. Biggio was a seven-time All-Star who spent his entire 20-year career in the majors with Houston. He had 3,060 hits, 668 doubles and 414 steals and set a big league record by getting hit with pitches 285 times. Approximately 600 writers who have been members of the BBWAA for 10 consecutive years at any point considered the 36-player ballot. Next years ballot could be even more crowded when Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz, Carlos Delgado and Gary Sheffield become eligible, five years after their retirements. The BBWAA last month formed a committee to study whether the organization should ask the Hall to change the limit of 10 players per ballot. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
