ATLANTA -- First-year Georgia Tech coach Josh Pastner saw another positive step in the growth of center Ben Lammers on Sunday afternoon. Brett Hull Jersey .Lammers had 12 points and 13 rebounds for his sixth double-double of the season and Georgia Tech routed Alcorn State 74-50 Sunday at McCamish Pavilion.When I first saw Ben in April when I first got the job and had our first workout, I was like, `Man, hes got some talent but he has a long way to go, Pastner said. To his credit, hes gotten better and better and better.The 6-foot-10 junior was 5-for-7 from the field and had six offensive rebounds and one blocked shot for the Yellow Jackets, who won their second-straight game. Lammers played only 20 minutes and didnt return to the court for the final 6:39.He got after it, Alcorn coach Montez Robinson said. He gets his hands on a lot of things.Georgia Tech (6-3) had three others in double figures: Josh Okogie with 14 points and three steals, Tadric Jackson with 14 points, and Quinton Stephens with 11 points and eight rebounds.Good win, especially coming after finals, Pastner said. I know its been a long layoff for us, 10 days, but we found a way to get a good win and kind of validated the Virginia Commonwealth win (on Dec. 7).Alcorn State (2-7) lost its fifth-straight game. The Braves were led by A.J. Mosby with 16 points, including four 3-pointers, and Reginal Johnson with 15 points and five reboundsGeorgia Tech came out and played well, Robinson said. They really got us out of what we wanted to run. They had a great plan for our guys. We tried to battle through it but just could never get over the hump.Alcorn State was able to hang around for the early part of the first half because of its 3-point success. The Braves were within 18-12 when Denzel Dulin made a 3-pointer with 11:28 left in the first half.But Georgia Tech responded with a 12-2 run that included back-to-back dunks from Jackson and Lammers, as well as a three-point play from Okogie. The run gave the Yellow Jackets a 30-14 lead with 6:00 left in the half.Georgia Tech led 39-22 at the half. Alcorn stayed close because of its 3-point success, hitting 6 of 7, and because it scored 11 points off seven Georgia Tech turnovers.Defensively they hit those 3s in the first half but we did force them into 21 turnovers, Pastner said. Weve still got some things to work on.BIG PICTUREGeorgia Tech: Freshman Josh Okogie scored a career-low three points in his last game, but equaled that by making a three-point play on the first possession of the game. He finished with 14.Alcorn State: Leading scorer Reginal Johnson didnt score his first basket until the 16:31 mark of the second half. He was denied the ball by the Georgia Tech defense and didnt take a shot in the first half. He finished with 15.CHARITY WORKGeorgia Techs state goal is to make more free throws than its opponent tries. The Yellow Jackets made 20-of-27, with Alcorn attempting just 15 and making 11.GEORGIA CONNECTIONAlcorn State had five Georgians on its roster. Robinson said the group may have been somewhat overeager to play at Georgia Tech. Of the quintet, Cartersville native Mosby led the Braves with 16 points.HITTING THE GLASSGeorgia Tech outrebounded Alcorn State 46-31. It was the sixth time the Yellow Jackets have beaten the opposition on the glass. It was the biggest margin, two more than their previous best against Tulane on Nov. 26.UP NEXTGeorgia Tech plays again at home on Tuesday against state-rival Georgia.Alcorn State is at Grand Canyon on Tuesday. Red Berenson Jersey . On June 12, just as the sun sets on the magnificent historical city of Sao Paulo the inventors, innovators and purveyors of “joga bonitowill” open their campaign. The opponent, Croatia and all its football might and will. As opposites do attract we are set for a corker of an opener. Cheap Blues Jerseys Online . How great will be revealed in the next couple of days at the board of governors meeting in Pebble Beach, Calif. http:///...arclay-plager-jersey . Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced Wednesday that the team would assign Swedish forward Elias Lindholm to his nations team for the upcoming tournament. A Geelong Cup, a Bendigo Cup and a Lexus Stakes are already in the bag for English trainer Charlie Appleby in his first foray into Australian racing.Now he will try to claim Australias biggest race at Flemington on Tuesday when he saddles up two runners in the Melbourne Cup.Applebys runners in Victoria this spring have already done the Godolphin trainer proud and he has Qewy and Oceanographer in the Cup.Appleby sent five horses to Australia for the spring carnival and said so far things had gone fantastically well.Scottish was billed as the stables main carnival player and he ran second in the $3 million Caulfield Cup and will run again in Saturdays $2 million Emirates Stakes (2000m).Qewy won the Geelong Cup (2400m) with Oceanographer third. Francis Of Assisi won the Bendigo Cup, while Second Wave was unplaced in the Moonee Valley Cup.Oceanographer secured his place in the Melbourne Cup with a barnstorming Lexus Stakes win on Saturday.Appleby was pleased with how Oceanographer came through the race but also admitted he was heading into the unknown by running him in the Melbourne Cup three days later, his third start in 13 days.From my point of view its something weve not done. All I can tell you is the horse is thriving on it, Appleby said.He came out of Geelong well, he eats well, and hes got a good mind. And what weve seen this morning, theres no negatives. Hes eaten up. Hes had a jog around the track. I cant give a negative.Its a conccern. Doug Wickenheiser Jersey. Weve just never done it before, so we really are going into an unknown with him.Oceanographers Lexus win elevated him to second favourite at $6.50 while Qewy is at $21.People said yesterdays performance was obviously exciting and historically its been a race that can throw up a horse that can run very well in the Melbourne Cup, Appleby said.Personally I love Qewy. Hes a horse whos got a great profile.He ran very well back in two festival races at Ascot and at Goodwood and what he did at Geelong, I know it was a front-running performance and people will say thats what he should be doing, but that was a mile and a half and on Tuesday it sounds as though its going to be a genuinely run two miles.Thats going to suit him down to the ground.But again you just cant knock what Oceanographers doing at the moment.Appleby said the two horses had different profiles and racing styles.Qewy we know is an out-and-out stayer but I felt what he did in the Geelong Cup was impressive for a horse we bought back in trip, he said.He said Oceanographer was a horse who needed to be ridden colder and liked to come charging home as he did on Saturday.Hes stepping up in trip again which I dont see that being any problem, but hes doing the three-day back-up which I cant tell you how thats going to pan out, Appleby said.
