hleticism, size and length to frustrate

TORONTO -- Noel Prefontaine came into the CFL as a Toronto Argonaut, and he will leave as one too. [url=]Adidas NMD Mujer[/url] . The veteran kicker/punter will retire after signing a one-day contract at Sundays game between Toronto and the B.C. Lions at Rogers Centre. Prefontaine spent most of his 16-season CFL career in Toronto, winning Grey Cup championships with the team in 2004 and 2012. "I would like to thank the Toronto Argonauts organization for giving me the opportunity to fulfil my dream of playing professional football," Prefontaine said in a statement. "Im honoured to have played in the CFL for 16 seasons. I played the game with a strong sense of commitment and passion and can only hope I left a mark in the hearts of Argonauts fans." Prefontaine made club history as the only Argonaut to ever be named a CFL all-star punter on six occasions. He was also named an East Division all-star 11 times (eight at punter, three at placekicker). He holds the Argonaut records for total punts (1,464), all-time punting yards (67,061), and most punting yards in a single game (744). He also holds club records for most all-time kickoffs in a career (688), and most kickoff yards (40,521). Prefontaine also wasnt afraid to get physical when he had to, recording 91 special teams tackles in his career. "Internally, we considered him our MVP because he influenced the game more than any other single player on the roster," Argos vice-chair Mike (Pinball) Clemons, a former teammate of Prefontaines, said in a statement. "He put the special in special teams, which is exceptional but not surprising for a kicker. Whats more unexpected is there were times when he was our best offensive player, leading us in scoring and changing field position with one smooth sweep of his lower left appendage. "From unexpected to shocking, there were times he was our best defensive player, making the kinds of tackles that would make (former Argos linebacker and current Winnipeg head coach) Mike OShea proud." Selected by Toronto in the 1998 supplemental draft, Prefontaine spent 10 years with the Argos before being dealt to Edmonton prior to the 2008 season. He was traded back to the Argos during the 2010 season and was released in February. In 254 regular-season CFL games with Toronto and Edmonton, Prefontaine has 347 field goals, 80,678 punting yards, 53,723 kicking yards, and 1,634 points. The son of a Canadian father and a Vietnamese mother, Prefontaine began his football career at Cal State Fullerton before moving to San Diego State University. In 1996, he set a new SDSU record for longest single punt (82 yards) and recorded 4,469 punting yards in his time with the school. He was named a first team all-American in his senior year.

CEO Steve Koonin on Tuesday told the Hawks flagship radio station that he made the decision to discipline Ferry but allowed him to keep his job managing the team. He did not say what the punishment was, but noted that he relied on a law firms three-month investigation of Ferry and him describing Deng as someone who has a little African in him.

You can catch all of the action live tonight at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt on TSN with the pre-game show before the 9:10pm et/6:10pm pt tip-off. Here are 3 Keys for each team. Enjoy! UCONN KEYS: 1. DOMINATE THE GUARD PLAY: Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright have been terrific so far in the tournament. Their ability to take you out of your comfort level with their tenacious defense and their ability to create and make their own shots is big. They are more experienced and, in my opinion, as talented, if not more talented, than the Harrison twins - they must dominate this match-up and frustrate the young guards. 2. REBOUNDING: Kentucky is +9 per game in the Tournament on the boards. That is a huge disparity and a big part of Kentuckys game is the second or third shot per offensive trip. UConn must neutralize this or theyll be in trouble. This is not one of UConns strengths. but theyve got to find a way to win the 50/50 battles and be physical. With the Wildcats, UConn is giving up lots of size inside. 3. DeANDRE DANIELS: After averaging 20 points and nine boards in his last three games, Daniels has to continue to be that versatilebig man for the Huskies inside and use his shot-making ability while facing the basket. Hes a tough cover and his ability to make the three-ball and lure you away from the hoop can take the Kentucky big out of their comfort zone a bit. They did a wonderful jjob stopping Wisconsins big man, Frank Kaminsky, with lots of attention. [url=]Adidas NMD XR1 Baratas[/url]. Daniels has to pick his spots, yet has to assert his game early and establish the fact that hes a guy getting lots of touches and attract the double team to open things up for teammates. KENTUCKY KEYS: 1. LATE SHOT CLOCK & GAME CLOCK SITUATIONS: The Wildcats have really impressed me with their discipline and poise in the tight situations. Decision-making with the ball and the types of plays and shots theyve been getting have been much improved over the early part of the season. Theyve been excellent at being organized and fundamentally sound on defence with a great attention to detail as the game progresses. They must continue to be sound on both sides of the ball. 2. TURNOVER MARGIN: Take care of the rock. Thats what it comes down to. Kentucky has been really steady in this regard and helped prevent run outs against their defence. They are a very good half-court defensive team that has the quickness, athleticism, size and length to frustrate opponents. You get folks into that type of game and then grind them. UConns guards want to run and create chances in open space. The fewer turnovers, the more the style of play favours you. 3. MARCUS LEE / JULIUS RANDLE / JAMES YOUNG: Energy, offensive rebounds, blocks, deflections, post scoring effort plays and paint domination are major areas that these, among many of the Kentucky young front court players, can get the upper hand over the Huskies. Beat them to the punch and be the better front court.
