LAWRENCE, Kan. Melvin Ingram Jersey . -- The growth of Josh Jackson will not eliminate whatever pressure the highly-rated freshman feels to both satisfy his preseason hype and elevate his NBA draft stock.Yet Kansas coach Bill Self has noticed his 6-foot-8 freshman welcomes whatever pressure is heaped on him with the No. 4 Jayhawks (6-1) riding a six-game winning streak entering a game Saturday against Stanford (6-2) in Allen Fieldhouse.Depth enables Kansas to sometimes ride the hot hand of an unconventional leading scorer. A case in point came in the Jayhawks most recent game when sophomore guard Lagerald Vick, in just his second career start, went 9 of 9 and netted a career-high 23 points.I dont think that Josh looks at it like, Im glad everybody else is playing good, so that takes some pressure off of me, Self said. I think (top-flight) kids look at it like I want all the pressure on me now.But it is an advantage to be able to have five guards out there that are all very capable and making plays and making shots.Jackson is the tallest in that group, a 6-8 wing who can penetrate for points or assists, and also contribute with sticky hands on the defensive end.The only time he failed to score in double figures was a nine-point performance in an overtime loss to Indiana to begin the season.Josh thinks of it like, I want to get as good as fast as I can, Self added. I think hes shown unbelievable improvement. And he didnt have a bad game against Indiana.At the rate Jackson is on, averaging 14.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists, he is quite possibly the most versatile freshman Self has coached at Kansas. Among other standouts on that list who left for the NBA after one year are Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid.Hes got great vision, Self said. He can pass and can alter (shots) and is getting more active defensively. Hes probably as all-around as any freshman weve had who can do a little bit of everything.The two small guards in the Kansas backcourt, senior Frank Mason and junior Devonte Graham, join Jackson as double-digit scorers with averages of 19.6 and 12.9 points, respectively. Each averages 5.4 assists.Stanford is coming off a 66-51 loss to No. 12 St. Marys. The Cardinal led 30-26 at halftime but shot just 28 percent from the field in the second half and made just one 3-pointer.They came out more enthused than we did, Stanford coach Jerod Haase said.Additional enthusiasm might not be enough for Stanford to upset Kansas, especially considering the Jayhawks are riding a 46-game home winning streak, which is tops in the country.Haase, however, knows the territory.He played at Kansas from 1995 to 1997 under Roy Williams. He then assisted the Kansas staff before moving on to serve as an assistant under Williams at North Carolina. Haase was head coach at UAB for four seasons before taking over this year at Stanford.Reid Travis, a 6-8 junior forward who missed much of last season with a stress reaction in a leg, will try to cause problems inside. He leads Stanford in scoring (16.3) and rebounding (9.5) and could be a load for the Jayhawks, who have lacked frontcourt production.Dorian Pickens, a 6-5 wing, averages 13.8 points and 4.4 rebounds. Nigel Harris Jersey . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. Jeremiah Attaochu Jersey . According to a report from the Vancouver Province, the Lions are expected to replace former DC Rich Stubler with defensive backs coach Mark Washington. http:///...an-fouts-jersey.html . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. STOCKTON, Calif. -- David Taylor scored 17 points to lead Pacific past Green Bay 76-58 in the wee hours of Tuesday morning during the 24-hour college basketball marathon.T.J. Wallace added 16 for the Tigers (1-1). Ray Bowles (10 points, 11 rebounds) and Sami Eleraky (10 points, 10 rebounds) each had double-doubles.Pacific used an 11-0 run with under nine minutes left in the game to pull away.Trevor Anderson sccored 14 points and Khalil Small had 13 for Green Bay, the defending Horizon League tournament champion. Max Tuerk Jersey. The Phoenix (1-1) led 27-26 at halftime but shot just 30 percent from the field and finished 5 of 22 from three-point range.Pacific had a 61-38 advantage on the boards. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
