AMES, Iowa -- It was hardly a coincidence that Iowa State senior point guard Monte Morris had one his most complete games Sunday. Herman Edwards Eagles Jersey.Morris notched the fifth triple-double in school history and No. 20 Iowa State throttled The Citadel 130-63, setting a program record for points in a game.Morris had 17 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and zero turnovers for Iowa State (3-0), which shot 60.5 percent from the floor. The Cyclones held the Bulldogs (2-2) -- who entered play averaging a national-best 112.2 points a game -- to just 22 in the first half.Iowa State raced ahead 18-3 and pushed its lead to 32 after just 14 minutes. Iowa State cracked 100 with 11 minutes left, and coach Steve Prohm was able to pull Morris from the game with 7:46 left to a standing ovation.I think it started on the defensive end, and my guys made shots. I just got the ball to them, said Morris, who grabbed all 10 of his rebounds on defense.Naz Mitrou-Long tied a career-high with 26 points and Matt Thomas had 18 for the Cyclones, who are beating their opponents by an average of 42 points.Iowa States previous record for points in a game came in 1978, when it beat Northeastern Illinois 129-69.No disrespect to the past three teams weve played, but we definitely felt very confident in winning those three, Mitrou-Long said.Quayson Williams had 15 for the Bulldogs, who were outscored in the paint 78-12.BIG PICTUREIowa State: The Cyclones looked a bit discombobulated at times offensively in a 73-55 win over Mount St. Marys on Monday. But The Citadels looser approach to defense allowed Iowa State to regain its rhythm in record-setting fashion. Seven different Cyclones had an assist in the first half, and Thomas drilled his first four 3s in a game that was never in doubt for a Top 25 team. I thought this was our most complete game on both ends of the floor, Iowa State coach Steve Prohm said.The Citadel: The Bulldogs ran into a team that plays like they do -- as fast as possible -- but has more talent. The Citadel was picked to finish last in the Southern Conference for a reason.POLL IMPLICATIONSIowa State might get a boost simply by taking care of the teams it was supposed to take care of. The real tests will start to come next week, with possible opponents such as Miami, Stanford and Gonzaga.THE NUMBERSIowa State out-rebounded the Bulldogs 63-33 and had 31 assists on 52 baskets. ...Eight different Cyclones scored in double digits. Darrell Bowie and Merrill Holden each had 13 points, Solomon Young had 12 and Donovan Jackson and Nick Weiler-Babb scored 10 points. Bowie added 10 rebounds. ...Thomas has made a 3-pointer in 28 straight games. ...The Citadel didnt score a single fast-break point despite their style of play.HE SAID ITIm not concerned about all that stuff, who starts at quarterback, who starts at (center) -- if you win. Are you playing starter minutes and quality minutes? Thats what Im concerned about. -- Prohm said when asked whether Bowie or Holden -- both senior graduate transfers -- had begun to emerge as his starting center.UP NEXTIowa State plays Indiana State on Thursday in the opening round of the Advocare Invitational in Orlando, Florida.The Citadel plays at Arizona State on Wednesday.---More AP college basketball at www.collegebasketball.ap.org ;Harold Carmichael Womens Jersey .

The Jets are now 0-5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs. The game started the same way the Vancouver game started the night before, with the Jets taking the first two penalties of the game and killing off the first, but the Oilers getting on the board first, scoring on the second man-advantage. Pakistan need to improve in every department if they are to compete with England in the remaining Tests of the Investec series according to their captain, Misbah-ul-Haq. A loss in the second Test at Old Trafford leveled the series at 1-1 with two matches left to play, but it was the margin of defeat - an eye-watering 330 runs - that has concerned Pakistan.While Misbah felt England made full use of winning an important toss, he accepted that his bowlers had been unable to build any pressure and his batsmen folded in the face of Englands intimidating first innings total of 589 for 8 declared before again staring at a massive fourth innings target of 565. Most of all, though, Misbah credited Joe Roots outstanding performance - 325 runs in the match, within one shot of the victory margin - to negate the threat of Yasir Shah and set-up Englands match-defining first innings total.We were below average and need to improve in every department, Misbah said. We could not really build the pressure and we let them score a massive total in the first innings. It is difficult to come back in the game facing 600. The toss was vital on that pitch, but England played really well. Alastair Cook and Root almost took the game away from us. They set the tone.That was the difference from Lords. At Lords, Root was out cheaply in both innings and we got Cook out cheaply in the second innings. Then they struggled. Root and Cook are their main players. They really depend on them - the others are struggling - but the way Root played in this game… it was an amazing innings.But our batting was a big disappointment. It was a good pitch to bat on but we scored 198 and 234. You cant take that. On that pitch you can score 350 plus even if you are batting second or fourth. Some of the batsmen are getting in, but not converting their sttarts. Connor Barwin Eagles Jersey. We really need them to do that.Misbah also highlighted the presence of two or three allrounders in Englands side and the absence of any from his as a key difference. While England are able to include five bowlers without weakening their batting, Pakistan were required to place a heavy load on the shoulders of their four bowlers. They remain desperate for Mohammad Hafeez to resume bowling again soon, with Misbah suggesting it could have made a big difference on this surface.Hafeez is not bowling, Misbah said. But on a pitch like that, it could have made a difference. Especially with the opposition having four or five left-handers in their side. They have a lot of allrounders. That really gives them strength. We dont have the option of a fifth bowler. Thats the limitation we have. But this is how we have to live at the moment.Misbah also defended Yasir Shah after a chastening performance. Having gone into the Old Trafford Test as the recently installed No. 1 bowler in the ICC Test rankings, Yasir claimed match figures of 1 for 266 from 63 overs in Manchester, a far cry from his 10-wicket performance at Lords.Maybe there was a bit of tiredness after he bowled a lot of overs in the previous Test, Misbah said. But there was a big difference in this match compared to the previous one. He could not really bowl with that control and consistency.They played him well. And there wasnt much help for him from the surface on the first two days. They were two good players facing him and it is totally different when there are runs on the board. It creates pressure. But we know he is a strong character and before the next Test he will definitely analyse what went wrong. 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 ' ' '
