BOULDER, Colo. Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Free Shipping . -- Colorado senior Derrick White stared at the stat sheet as he sat down and just grimaced.His coach shared his disgust, especially those 19 turnovers and 15 missed free throws.The stats were made a whole lot more palatable by these numbers -- a 67-55 win over Seattle on Monday night in a regional round of the Legends Classic.That was the definition of winning ugly right there, Colorado coach Tad Boyle said. We were not very good offensively tonight, obviously, on a lot of different levels. But to figure out a way to win on a night when youre not functioning that well offensively is a testament to our guys will and their toughness and our defense and rebounding.The hallmarks of Boyles program have long been defense and rebounding, which never take a night off. The Buffaloes (2-0) held Seattle to 30.2 percent shooting from the floor and out-rebounded the Redhawks by a 55-35 margin.Were in the process of becoming a good team, Boyle said. Were not a good team right now.White scored 15 points and Josh Fortune hit two big 3-pointers down the stretch to lift Colorado. Fortune finished with 12 points, all in the second half, while Wesley Gordon added 11 points and 14 rebounds.We had 19 turnovers ... and we still won, White said. It just goes to show that if we guard and we rebound we can win.Seattle (1-1) was led by Brendan Westendorf, who finished with 17 points.Trailing by a basket early in the second half, Colorado went on a 16-2 run to gain some separation. But the Redhawks pulled to within 54-51 on Westendorfs four-point play with around 6 minutes remaining.Soon after, Fortune entered the game and bailed out the Buffaloes, who finished 3 of 18 from 3-point land. They were also 26 of 41 from the free throw line.Its tough when you get that close and they pull away from you, Westendorf said.Seattle coach Cameron Dollar couldnt agree more.We had some looks but didnt capitalize on it, Dollar said. You have to be able to score a little bit more than we did tonight.BIG PICTURESeattle: As Colorado discovered, the Redhawks arent limited to preseason All-Western Athletic Conference players Westendorf and William Powell, who was held to four points. Scott Ulaneo had 11 rebounds, forward Emmanuel Chibuogwu scored nine points and 7-foot-3 center Aaron Menzies contributed eight.Colorado: Although the Buffaloes struggled with their long-range shooting, they should get a lift from freshman guard Bryce Peters. He served the second of a two-game suspension Monday for violating team rules.PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATIONMore than a dozen students stood in an aisle before tipoff and protested what they felt were inequities on campus. One of the leaders, Xavier Cochrane, said Donald Trumps victory during the U.S. presidential election played a role in the peaceful demonstration at Coors Events Center. The students held up one hand and chanted such things as Black Lives Matter and Latino Lives Matter.We want our voice to be heard, said Cochrane, the co-president of the Black Student Alliance at Colorado and a wide receiver on the football team.X-FACTORXavier Johnson scored 13 to become the 33rd player in school history to eclipse the 1,000-point plateau for a career. Johnson missed last season as he recovered from a torn Achilles.Its a blessing to be able to play the game again, coming off that Achilles tear, Johnson said. Im just happy to score the basketball.NO DOMBothered by a sore foot, junior guard Dominique Collier didnt play in the second half.If it doesnt get better, the Buffaloes may have to shut him down for a bit.We have to get it healthy and healed, Boyle said. We need him. We need Dom Collier to be effective for us this year.UP NEXTSeattle travels to Notre Dame on Wednesday as part of the Legends Classic.Colorado hosts Louisiana Monroe on Thursday in the second game of the Boulder Regional of the Legends Classic.---More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org ;Air Max 90 Outlet Store . John Tavares, Thomas Vanek and Kyle Okposo were also being counted on to slow down sizzling Rangers forward Rick Nash. That plan didnt go so well early. Nike Air Max 90 Cheap Wholesale . Nigeria beat surprise package Ethiopia 2-0 in the second leg of their playoff for a comfortable 4-1 aggregate victory.

The?Houston Astros?announced Wednesday that outfielder Carlos Gomez?has been designated for assignment.I know I didnt do my best, Gomez told the Houston Chronicle. I wish the best to them. They have a great team and organization.Gomez also told MLB.com, Its not a secret that Im not doing my job, and Im really disappointed in myself.This season, Gomez had a .210 average in 85 games for the Astros. He has five home runs and 29 RBIs.This has nothing to do with Carlos effort, Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow told reporters before the teams game against the Minnesota Twins. Carlos has put in 100 percent. We all see how much he enjoys playing the game and how much he cares about what happens. Its one of those situations where, for whatever reason, it didnt work out here in the way he wanted to and the way we wanted to.Manager A.J. Hinch praised Gomezs attitude despite the persistent struggles.I just think he put a lot of pressure on himself to be perfect, and the harder he tried, sometimes the more difficult it became, Hinch said. It wasnt a lack of effort. It wasnt a lack of preparation. It wasnt a lack of anything other than production on the field.The Astros have 10 days to either trade Gomez, assign him to the minor leagues or release him. Gomez can also be claimed by another team off irrevocable outright waivers.Gomez, 30, was acquired by the Astros from the Brewers?in a deadline deal in July 2015. In 41 games witth Houston last season, he batted . Air Max 90 Sale Outlet. .242 with four home runs and 13 RBIs.Sometimes it just doesnt work, Hinch said. I know he carried the burden of being the big acquisition in July. He often spoke of feeling responsible and trying to play better for the team, knowing that he was a big addition last July during the playoff race. We can poke holes at guys, especially on their way out the door, but Ill choose to remember the more positive impact -- the home run in New York in the playoffs, the continual energy behind the scenes, the selflessness in talking to some of the young players.The Astros were a surprise AL wild-card team last year and after beating the Yankees fell to the World Series champion Kansas City Royals in five games in the next round.?Gomez was an All-Star with the Brewers in 2013 and 2014. In both seasons, he batted .284 and had 73 RBIs.He is in the final season of a three-year, $24 million contract that is paying him $9 million this year.The Astros recalled right-handed reliever Jandel Gustave from Triple-A Fresno to fill Gomezs roster spot. Jake Marisnick will take over in center field, and Tony Kemp will get plenty of time in left field. Colby Rasmus is on the disabled list with an ear problem.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.? cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseyscheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
