                                      SEATTLE -- For the second straight season, all the attention for Washington is on a freshman. Cheap Jordan 12 Online .Unlike last year when it was a group of freshmen Washington relied on, this season its a singular freshman that could end up being the reason the Huskies get back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2011.No pressure Markelle Fultz.In the country, I think hes one of the best (freshmen) coming in, Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said.How far Washington goes this season will largely depend on Fultz, regarded as the most talented freshman to ever walk onto the Washington campus. He comes with buzz and expectations that hell be a potential top five pick if he decides to pursue the NBA after his freshman season. Hes a 6-foot-4 guard with the handle and vision to be a point guard, but the scoring savvy to carry a team offensively.Fultz is entering a unique situation with the Huskies. They are five years removed from their last NCAA trip with increased heat on Romar for the lengthy absence despite a continued pipeline of talent that last season included Marquese Chriss and Dejounte Murray, who both left after their freshman seasons to become first-round NBA picks.Talent is not Washingtons problem. Molding that talent into a unit able to find enough success on the court has been.Thats what Fultz steps into. There are expectations for him to prove hes worthy of the hype. And there are expectations that he will help his team return to the NCAAs.I dont even think about the NBA, Fultz said. I think when people play like they already made it, they dont play as hard as they can possibly play. They just think everybody is supposed to respect them, they dont have to play defense, stuff like that. I play to win, each play, each possession. I hate losing.Surrounding Fultz will be a talented lineup but one devoid of true stars. The loss of Murray, Chriss and senior Andrew Andrews took away 50.7 points per game from last season. Fultz will fill some of that, but others like Matisse Thybulle, Dominic Green, Noah Dickerson and Malik Dime need to transition from being role players into legitimate scorers.Heres what else to watch with the Huskies, who open Nov. 11 versus Yale:DO IT ALL: Thybulle was an athlete as a freshman, asked to play defense, grab rebounds and occasionally contribute offensively. His defense will continue to be the priority because of his length and quickness that make him a challenging matchup for most guards. But the scoring will need to increase. Thybulle was Washingtons second-best 3-point shooter last season, hitting 36.6 percent.FRESHMAN WALL: Learning the college game was a struggle for Dickerson. At times he was an unorthodox force underneath, giving the Huskies a needed inside presence. At other times, he was lost and confused defensively, often finding himself on the bench in foul trouble.Dickerson has dropped between 15 and 20 pounds from last season and hopes to have improved quickness thatll help keep him out of foul trouble.GREEN MACHINE: No one received more offseason praise for improvement than Green. He showed scoring potential off the bench at times as a freshman, but also a penchant for poor shot selection and shaky defense. That must improve this season with Green being counted on as a likely starter on the wing.NEW TO TOWN: Among Washingtons newcomers, the most help should come on the front line. Junior transfer Matthew Atewe and freshman Sam Timmins are not new to the program. Atewe sat out last season after transferring from Auburn, while Timmons enrolled in school last winter but did not play. Both bring size and depth to the Huskies frontcourt.SCHEDULING: Washington does not face the most strenuous non-conference schedule, meaning the Huskies must make the most of their few marquee games. Most notable is a Dec. 7 showdown at Gonzaga, the resumption of a four-year series between the in-state foes.

Air Jordan 12 Wholesale . "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. http://www.airjordan12cheap.com/ .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N.Red Bull can harbour ambitions of catching Ferrari by the August summer break, reckons Daniel Ricciardo. F1s former all-conquering champions have made a stronger than expected start to the new season and, with one podium and three fourth places so far, are already just four points behind Ferrari in the standings.And Ricciardo believes that while Red Bull may remain adrift of F1s top two teams for now, an expected upgrade to Renaults engine at Junes Canadian GP could allow them to bridge the gap to the first of their leading rivals. Were certainly getting closer, said Ricciardo ahead of this weekends Russian GP, where he will test Red Bulls new aeroscreen head protection concept in Practice One.Still, I think if Mercedes and Ferrari do their perfect lap, they are still ahead of us. But were certainly a lot closer, and its nice.Hamilton welcomes challengers I feel the chassis is better, for one, but if you look at the speed traps were a chunk closer than we were last year. Weve got improvements from both sides [car and engine] which is really encouraging.Naturally, the chassis gets better as the season goes on, but with some updates coming from the power unit side hopefully these two things keep going up and then we can genuinely at least be on Ferraris pace before the summer break. Heres a look at Red Bulls new cockpit screen, but what do their drivers think about it? Having warned during pre-season that they faced a transitional 2016, Red Bull have already picked up more points - 57 - than they managed in last seasons first eight races.

Ricciardo feels the improvement delivered by the RB12 car is split equally between chassis and engine development - with performance gains from the latter even raising the subject of a once-unlikely contract renewal.Russian GP talking pointsRed Bulls long-standing relationship with Renault almost resulted in an early divorce in 2015, before an 11th-hour revision of their deal saw the teams engines rebranded under the Tag Heuer name for 2016 and the agreement continue into its final season. Now asked if they could extend the deal after a brighter start to this year, Ricciardo replied: Its definitely not unlikely now. And, if we do get what we hope and what we see from the update, it should put us on a Ferrari power unit level, which is competitive enough for the team and the chassis we have.So we might not have that much of a silly season with the power units as we did last year.Watch the whole Russian GP weekend - LIVE ONLY on Sky Sports F1.
