Cheap China Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . -- Mark Few wondered how his eighth-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs would handle a nine-day break for exams, traveling cross country and playing in front of a heavily orange crowd.Tennessee coach Rick Barnes saw enough Sunday to think Few and Gonzaga still might be undefeated when March rolls around.Nigel Williams-Goss scored 20 points, and Gonzaga remained unbeaten by holding off Tennessee 86-76.I thought they did good, especially the way we started the first half, Few said. Usually when you come out of finals like this, youre a little bit concerned about losing rhythm. We had some pretty good rhythm going into finals. Gave them several days off, I was a little bit worried about that. They responded.Gonzaga (11-0) hadnt played since beating Akron on Dec. 10 and looked strong as it scored the first eight points and never trailed. The Bulldogs led 27-6 on a jumper by Zach Collins with 12:06 left, 43-29 at halftime and 64-48 midway through the second half.Tennessee (6-5) went on a 10-3 run and got within 75-71 on a jumper by Robert Hubbs III with 2:26 left.Josh Perkins then hit a jumper as Gonzaga held on for its fourth straight win in the five games between these teams.Obviously we werent perfect, but to come in here and beat a good Tennessee team by double digits, and pretty much control the entire game, I thought we did a good job, Williams-Goss said. But theres room to grow.This was billed as the Battle of Broadway played at Bridgestone Arena, so technically it was a neutral court -- except for all the fans wearing Tennessee orange in the seats. Those fans got very loud as the Vols made their run.Barnes wasnt happy with how the Vols started, and hes tiring of coming close in losses.Its one thing being talked about as being a scrappy team that fights all the time, but at some point in time weve got to want to be more than that, he said. Weve got to want to play 40 minutes, and we havent done that at any point in time this year.Detrick Mostella led Tennessee with 17 points and Hubbs had 10.The Vols played without 6-foot-7 freshman John Fulkerson, who missed his first game since dislocating his right elbow in Thursday nights win over Lipscomb. Fulkerson is expected to miss six weeks with the injury.BIG PICTUREGonzaga: The Bulldogs came in as one of six undefeated teams in the Top 25 and did nothing to hurt their stock after their break. ... They improved to 12-8 all-time against Southeastern Conference teams and 2-0 this season. Gonzaga beat Florida last month. ... With 7-1 center Karnowski and 6-9 Johnathan Williams, the Bulldogs outrebounded Tennessee 42-38.Tennessee: This was the Vols fourth game in eight days, a stretch that started a week ago with a 73-71 loss in Chapel Hill to No. 7 North Carolina. ... Barnes now is 0-5 against Gonzaga and 0-4 against Few. ... Freshman Grant Williams scored 30 points in the Vols last game and finished with 11.QUOTABLEI think hes got as good a team as hes ever had, Barnes said of Few. I think hes going to become an even bigger story in college basketball because if you look ahead, hes always done tremendous things with his team in the league and he could be the first time in a long time that youve got a team capable of being undefeated heading into postseason play.FOUL TROUBLEThe officiating crew of Karl Hess, Jamie Luckie and Brent Hampton called 56 fouls combined. Gonzaga and Tennessee each had a player foul out with Silas Melson playing 18 minutes before his fifth foul for the Bulldogs, while Jordan Bowden had nine points in 27 minutes for the Vols. Gonzaga finished the game with four players having four fouls apiece.UP NEXTGonzaga: The Bulldogs host South Dakota on Wednesday.Tennessee: At East Tennessee State on Thursday night.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .Discount NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. SOUTHAMPTON, England -- Southampton striker Charlie Austin scored twice against former club Burnley in a convincing 3-1 Premier League win.Even with Shane Long, James Ward-Prowse and Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg on the bench, Southampton retained a strong look and climbed to eighth in the standings.Sundays home fixture represented Southamptons first game in a run of seven in 22 days, with a trip to Inter Milan in the Europa League on Thursday followed by an away match at Manchester City.A third loss in four left promoted Burnley only a point above the relegation zone. But Southampton took until seven minutes into the second half to break through Burnleys resistance.Dusan Tadics corner was headed across goal by Virgil van Dijk. Austin, from his second attempt amid Burnleys desperate defending, finally stabbed his first goal into the back of the net from dirrectly in front of goal. Cheap Jerseys From China Store/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Southamptons second goal -- provided by Nathan Redmond on the hour -- was of a higher quality. In space in the penalty area after another corner, Redmond waited for the ball to arrive at his feet before sending a low finish into the bottom right beyond goalkeeper Tom Heatons reach.Southampton went further in front six minutes later. After Johann Berg Gudmundsson brought down Sam McQueen, Austin made it seven goals in six games by converting a penalty.A consolation arrived for Burnley when the north-west club was awarded a penalty in the 72nd minute. Referee Mike Dean felt Tadic had fouled Ben Mee, allowing Sam Vokes to become the first player to score against Southampton in 612 minutes. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
