If Las Vegas is to support an NHL franchise, it wont be on the backs on tourists - according to potential owner Bill Foley, who plans to bring the city its first major sports franchise. [url=http://www.cheapsunsjerseys.com/]Wholesale Suns Jerseys[/url] . I dont want to see everyone in the stands with a Canucks jersey on, Foley said in an interview with ESPNs Scott Burnside on Thursday. Im not trying to promote the Red Wings. Foley, a former mortgage financier, added that an NHL franchise would receive help from the citys extensive number of tourists but the goal will be to attract locals to the arena. We know that were going to get great casino support, Foley told Burnside. But I want the guy that lives in Henderson (located just outside of Las Vegas), I want him to be there. The future of a potential franchise will receive a major test in the coming months with a season ticket-drive led by Foley and a possible blessing from the NHL. Foley has a two-part plan for drumming up interest from locals. The first is contacting citizens and businesses to express their formal interest in a professional hockey team and then asking those who expressed interest for a form of financial commitment to season tickets. Foley will meet with NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly next week to discuss and finalize plans for his ticket drive. The league endorsed a trial drive earlier this week at its annual December meetings. Foley and the Maloof family have been working on plans for a Las Vegas-based franchise over the past 15 months. He notes that though progress has been made, he and his partners have to provide proof the city could support a franchise. Weve made good progress, but the reality is that Las Vegas is an unproven market, Foley told ESPN. Foley, at the very least, has the support of The Great One. Hes a wonderful man, Wayne Gretzky told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun. He would be a great owner if he gets a team. He loves hockey and he loves sports. He would be unreal. It would be good for hockey if he gets the team. He loves the game. Foley is nearing a lease agreement with the builders of the currently in construction $350 million venue being built by MGM Resorts International and AEG. The arena is set to hold a capacity of 20,000, though the official seating chart is yet to be completed.

[url=http://www.cheapsunsjerseys.com/]Cheap Suns Jerseys Authentic[/url] . The Indians scored twice in the top of the ninth, getting the go-ahead run on a wild pitch by closer Matt Lindstrom.

General manager David Poile called signing Ribeiro a great opportunity to add a talented, experienced and creative centre Tuesday when he introduced the veteran at a news conference.

Kentucky asserted itself as the most dangerous team in the nation during non- conference play, beating perennial powers Kansas, Texas, North Carolina and UCLA by a combined 97 points before edging in-state rival Louisville, 58-50, on Dec. 27. But the Wildcats (14-0, 1-0 SEC) had a nine-day layoff since that win over the Cardinals and the rust showed as Ole Miss, which lost at home to Charleston Southern earlier this season, took the top- ranked Wildcats to the wire. Harrison made five 3-pointers and 9-of-10 from the foul line while his brother Andrew posted 12 points and five assists. Willie Cauley-Stein provided his usual stellar defense, racking up four blocks and three steals on top of a game-high 12 rebounds. Stefan Moody paced Ole Miss (9-5, 0-1) with 25 points, but missed most of overtime with a leg cramp. Jarvis Summers scored 23 points and Ladarius White added 15. Final Score: (8) Villanova 90, (24) St. Johns 72 New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Darrun Hilliard scored 21 points and No. 8 Villanova downed No. 24 St. Johns, 90-72, at a lively Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night. The Big East Top-25 clash had a March feel with fans of both schools providing plenty of energy in the back-and-forth battle. The Wildcats (14-1, 2-1 Big East) silenced the Red Storm supporters down the stretch, however, and recovered nicely from their first loss of the season. Daniel Ochefu led a dominant frontcourt effort that owned a commanding 40-21 rebounding advantage. Ochefu finished with 13 points and 12 boards, while Dylan Ennis added 15 and nine for the victors. DAngelo Harrison led St. Johns (11-4, 0-3) with 25 points, while Phil Greene IV netted 14 in the clubs third straight loss. The Red Storm went 11-1 in non-conference play before falling to Seton Hall, Butler and now Villanova over the past week. Final Score: (17) Iowa State 63, Oklahoma State 61 Ames, IA (SportsNetwork.com) - DDustin Hogue finished with 17 points and eight rebounds and No. [url=http://www.cheapsunsjerseys.com/]Cheap Suns Jerseys China[/url]. 17 Iowa State used two key blocks in the waning seconds to hold off Oklahoma State for a 63-61 win in its Big 12 opener.

With time winding down in overtime, Loving came off a curl on the left side of the court, caught a feed from Sam Thompson and got a one-handed push shot to fall. Minnesota had a timeout left but opted not to use it, instead rushing the ball up the court. Thompson deflected a pass, knocking the ball towards midcourt, and the clock hit zero before Minnesotas desperation heave. Maurice Walker tallied 18 points and nine rebounds and DeAndre Mathieu scored 17 for Minnesota (11-5, 0-3). Final Score: (23) Arkansas 79, Georgia 75 Athens, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Bobby Portis had a game-high 21 points as No. 23 Arkansas opened SEC play with a close 79-75 victory over Georgia on Tuesday.
