MOREHEAD, Ky. Sami Khedira Jersey . -- T.J. Cromer scored 23 points and dished out seven assists to lead East Tennessee State to a 78-68 win over Morehead State on Saturday.The Buccaneers have won back-to-back games following a 14-point loss to Dayton, and have won seven of eight overall.Cromer did much of his damage from behind the arc, drilling 6 of 9 from long range. Desonta Bradford and Hanner Mosquera-Perea each finished with 13 points for East Tennessee State (9-2).The Buccaneers shot 50 percent from the field while holding the Eagles to just 32.4 percent.Xavier Moon led Morehead State (2-8) with 19 points, while DeJuan Marrero added 17. The Eagles have lost eight consecutive games.Cromer hit a 3 to spark a 12-2 East Tennessee State run to start the game, and the Bucs led by 15 at the break. The Eagles got as close as eight in the second, but never seriously threatened.The game was the first for Morehead State following the resignation of head coach Sean Woods on Thursday, two days after being charged with misdemeanor battery in Indiana. Two players accused him of assaulting them during a game. Woods had been suspended since Nov. 22.Preston Spradlin, an assistant on Woods staff, is serving as interim head coach. Claudio Marchisio Jersey . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. Paulo Dybala Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. http://www.juventusfcpro.com/Kids-Cristiano-Ronaldo-Jersey/ . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. AUSTIN, Texas -- The losses keep coming for Charlie Strong, no matter what promises were made in the past.For the third year in a row, Strongs Texas Longhorns have lost at least five games, rekindling questions of whether the program has improved enough for him to earn a fourth year and another $5 million, or if the losing is just too much for one of the nations blue-blood schools to stomach.I look at how were playing. I dont ever make excuses. There are no excuses, Strong said Monday. The losses are mounting. Theres games we should win and we had our opportunity.Rewind to November 2014, when the Longhorns were 6-5 in Strongs first season and he boldly predicted that five losses will never happen in this program again. Texas finished that year 6-7, then went 5-7 and missed the postseason in 2015.The dreaded five-loss threshold was crossed again over the weekend with a 24-20 home loss to No. 10 West Virginia, when the Longhorns never led and couldnt win despite forcing four turnovers. Texas (5-5, 3-4 Big 12) still isnt bowl eligible with two games left at Kansas on Saturday and at home against TCU the Friday after Thanksgiving.Strong was asked how he would sell that his team is making progress if he were in a job evaluation.You still have a football team thats still competing, still playing hard. Thats what you like to see happening, Strong said.There are tangible improvements he could have noted.Texas has two wins over top 10 opponents Notre Dame and Baylor, even though neither program is anywhere near that lofty status any more. The offense under first-year coordinator Sterlin Gilbert and led by powerhouse running back DOnta Foremman, who averages 178 yards per game, is a complete turnaround from the previous two seasons. Gianluigi Buffon Jersey. Other than Foreman, Texas best players have been sophomores and freshmen, including quarterback Shane Buechele, giving whoever coaches Texas in 2017 a bright future.Were a good team, Buechele said. Coach always says our record doesnt define us ... We can beat anybody.Even a defense that was bad early has improved once Strong took over the play-calling. The Longhorns rank among the best in the nation with 36 sacks.And gone are the blowouts of Strongs first two years, when his teams lost nine games by 18 points or more. Texas is 12 points from 8-2. They are also 12 points from 2-8.In other words, Strong is dancing on a razor-thin difference between dominant and disaster, only to find himself balancing on mediocre.Texas President Greg Fenves and athletic director Mike Perrin have publicly supported Strong all season. Fenves will look carefully at Strongs entire resume to decide if he gets a fourth season on a guaranteed five-year contract.The president will take a long look at it, Strong said. We still have two games left.Getting to a bowl game would be a good step forward, even if its still far short of the leap Texas fans -- and college football -- expected after a thrilling double-overtime win over Notre Dame in the season opener.We have to get to a bowl game, Strong said. Our seniors deserve to get to a bowl game.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 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 ' ' '
