    导出博客文章FORT WORTH, Texas -- Vaughan, Ont. Patrick DiMarco Jersey ., native Andrew Wiggins wasnt around a year ago for one of the worst nights in Kansas basketball history. The freshman guard heard stories from coach Bill Self, and took it upon himself to squash any TCU hopes of a repeat. Wiggins scored 19 of his career-high 27 points in the first half and No. 8 Kansas answered last years stunning loss by taking control early in a 91-69 victory over the Horned Frogs on Saturday night. "He let everyone know that they beat us last year so we had to come out with a lot of energy, come with aggression," Wiggins said. "I think we were concentrating and we played with a high level of energy." The Jayhawks (15-4, 6-0 Big 12) won their sixth straight game and remained the only Big 12 team without a league loss. Kansas didnt get to extend its run of wins in four straight games against ranked opponents, the first team to do that since North Carolina in 1996-97. In their visit to Fort Worth last year, the Jayhawks became the first top-five team to lose to the Horned Frogs in a 62-55 defeat. This time, Kansas had 53 points at halftime and led by as many as 24 in the first half. "It was better, a lot better," said Self, who joked a year ago that it was "the worst team that Kansas ever put on the floor, since Dr. Naismith was there" after the Jayhawks scored 13 points in the first half. Brandon Parrish scored 15 points to lead TCU (9-10, 0-7). The Horned Frogs are the only conference team without a league win and are 2-23 in their two Big 12 seasons. TCU coach Trent Johnson simply saw what he called a "really good" Kansas team, not one fired up to make amends for the shocker of a season ago. "Why would they get all fired up about what?" Johnson said. "You talk about Kansas basketball and were just trying to make this team relevant. We havent been to the post-season since the dinosaurs. So I dont think they get all worked up over something like that." Joel Embiid had 14 points, six rebounds and three blocked shots for Kansas before fouling out for the fourth time this season. Wayne Selden Jr. scored 12, and Perry Ellis had eight points and 14 rebounds. TCUs student section flashed last years score in huge block numbers before the opening tip in case the Jayhawks had forgotten, but Wiggins was hardly fazed. The top-scoring freshman in the Big 12 made his first three shots and had a pair of 3-pointers and an alley-oop dunk from Selden in the first half. Wiggins topped his previous career best of 25 points against Florida on Dec. 10 and led Kansas with five assists. "He can defer a little bit and he can kind of get lost, but he never got lost today," Self said. "He was able to put his handprint all over the possessions and create opportunities for himself and others. I thought he played the way he should play every game." Wiggins also made it easier for the Jayhawks to exploit their size advantage inside. Jamari Traylor and Embiid had back-to-back dunks to put the Jayhawks up 14-6, surpassing their halftime total of 13 points from last year just 4 1/2 minutes into the game. Kansas, which shot a season-low 30 per cent in last years loss, was at 62 per cent in the first half, which ended with the Jayhawks in front by 21. The Jayhawks shot 57 per cent for the game. Conner Frankamp and Wiggins hit consecutive 3-pointers to finish a 13-2 run that put Kansas up 43-22. Embiid, a 7-footer from Cameroon, showed some versatility, beating Amric Fields with a strong spin move for a layup shortly before getting a steal, dribbling the length of the floor and getting fouled driving for a layup. He made both free throws for Kansas biggest first-half lead at 51-27. "Hes a good player," said TCU freshman centre Karviar Shepherd, who had eight points and fouled out trying to stay with Embiid. "We attacked each other on the offensive end and the defensive end. I got in some foul trouble early and he got the best of me." Fields had 13 points and seven rebounds for the Horned Frogs, who shot 56 per cent in the second half to keep the game from getting completely out of hand. Kyan Anderson added 12 points and eight assists.

Federer faced little challenge from Bozoljac, who served well but still was no match for his Swiss opponent.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The souvenirs from Darrelle Revis first division title in his brilliant eight-year career were safely stowed in his bag.For long-time New England players, the T-shirt with the message PATRIOTS RUN THE EAST and the championship hat are just the latest in a huge collection — six straight AFC East titles and 11 of the last 12.Wide receiver Julian Edelman has won it in all six of his NFL seasons. Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork has won 10 in his 11 seasons.Im blessed. Im lucky. Its all of that, Wilfork said. What can you say?The enthusiasm after the Patriots clinched the division with a 41-13 rout of the Miami Dolphins on Sunday was tempered by their pursuit of greater goals — home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs, a berth in the Super Bowl and another NFL championship. They won three in four seasons but none in the next nine.Revis did make it to the AFC title game twice, in the 2009 and 2010 seasons. His New York Jets were a wild-card team in 2010 then beat the Patriots in Foxborough 28-21 in a divisional game before losing to Pittsburgh 24-19 in the conference championship game.Revis wanted to get back there so he chose New England over other options when he became a free agent after one injury-marred season with Tampa Bay.Just to win, he said of his motivation in signing with the Patriots.And the division title?Its my first one, so Im very excited, the five-time Pro Bowl cornerback said. It took a lot of hard work and Im just excited. This is my first time so Im happy to wear the hat and wear the T-shirt. Its pretty awesome.The Patriots can take another step toward their next goal, the top seed in the AFC, by beating Revis former team. They visit the New York Jets (3-11) on Sunday before finishing the regulaar season at home against the Buffalo Bills (8-6), a team they beat 37-22 on the road on Oct. Josh Allen Jersey. . 12.They were criticized prematurely by many when they split their first four games, including a 41-14 loss in Kansas City that left them at 2-2 and tied for the AFC East lead with Buffalo and Miami.We really didnt care how people felt about us, Wilfork said in the locker room after Sundays win. The one thing we had was the people in here and our fans, our true fans. It always feels good to win the East, Ill tell you that.Even if the competition within the division has been mediocre throughout the Patriots domination of more than a decade.In the 12 seasons starting in 2003, the Patriots are 57-13 against AFC East foes, a winning percentage of .814.Against the rest of the league, theyre 92-28 and .766.Theyre 21-2 against Buffalo in that stretch with the next meeting on Dec. 28, although the Bills won Sunday against Green Bay, which had beaten New England.Next Sundays game at the Jets is another installment in a heated rivalry. New York coach Rex Ryan could have extra incentive to beat the Patriots before his widely expected departure after this season.The Patriots should be heavily favoured in both but always speak highly of their opponents and study and practice hard before each game.Every year we have a great opportunity to try to accomplish something, quarterback Tom Brady said. It doesnt start this morning. It started back in March. Its a lot of hard work that goes into it. I dont think you ever take winning for granted.I certainly dont because I know how hard it is to win.No matter how many division championship T-shirts are hanging in your closet.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '
