Toni Kukoc Jersey . -- Memorial Gym has seen a lot of 3-pointers during the last 30 years, but never a night like this.Vanderbilt broke a school record with 19 3-pointers and combined with High Point for a school record 31 3-pointers in a 90-63 win over the Panthers on Tuesday night.Vanderbilt (5-4) made 19 of 32 from 3-point range. The old school record was 18 3-pointers in an 88-63 win at Tennessee in 2005.High Point (4-5) went 12 for 15 from beyond the arc.I thought it was a tremendous shooting display by both teams and I dont know if thats because both teams were just really, really good shooters or there were a lot of breakdowns on the defensive end tonight, Commodores coach Bryce Drew said. I think a lot of credit tonight with them making shots was the unselfishness. We had 23 assists on 29 field goals.Vanderbilt, the SECs top 3-point shooting team, has made a 3-pointer in all 973 of its games since the inception of the 3-point line in 1986. Only UNLV has a longer streak in Division I basketball.Matthew Fisher-Davis led the Commodores 19 points, including four 3-pointers.Riley LaChance tied the record with a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 7 minutes left and Joe Toyes 3-pointer from the corner with 1:26 left broke the record. LaChance scored 14 points, including four 3s.I think guys were doing a good job of getting other guys open, LaChance said. We had a lot of good looks from 3.Vanderbilts Jeff Roberson scored 14 points, including four 3-pointers, Payton Willis added 13 points with three 3-pointers and Nolan Cressler scored 10.We werent aware of any of the records, Cressler said. We were just kind of out there playing. Me and Riley were on the bench and the announcer said something about new Vanderbilt record, 19 3s or whatever. So its kind of cool to be in the record books.LaChance entered the game with the Southeastern Conferences second-leading 3-point percentage (67.9).Theyre a pretty elite 3-point shooting team, Panthers coach Scott Cherry said. They move the ball around and stretch the floor. At one point they had five guards out there and we dont have good length on the perimeter.Miles Bowman Jr. led High Point with 22 points, Jamal Wright had 12 and Anthony Lindauer added 11.Bowman scored High Points first 10 points, leading the Panthers to a 13-6 advantage early in the first half. Vanderbilt answered with an 11-0 run to take a 17-13 lead.Just seeing the ball go through the hoop like that constantly and consistently doesnt give you much of a chance to rebound, Bowman said. And you dont get a chance to run the ball in transition. It was kind of crazy.The Commodores made 12 of their first 19 shots from 3-point range to take a 50-42 halftime lead. High Point was nearly as good, hitting eight of its first nine.Vanderbilt improved to 13-0 against the Big South Conference.BIG PICTUREHigh Point: The Panthers 3-point shooters were almost as productive as the Commodores, but Vanderbilt pulled away in the second half.Vanderbilt: The Commodores 3-point shooting is as good as it gets, but theyre still searching for consistency in their overall game.PANTHER DROUGHTHigh Point went over 13 minutes without a basket in the second half, turning an 11-point deficit into a 30-poiint gap. Vanderbilt scored 33 points off turnovers in the game. Thats been the story of our season, Cherry said. Dead spots like that. We go stretches without scoring.UP NEXTHigh Point hosts Ferrum on Sunday to start a two-game home stand.Vanderbilt visits Middle Tennessee on Thursday before a nine-day break. Scottie Pippen Jersey . Kyle Denbrook, a soccer player from Saint Marys University, took the CIS male athlete of the week honour. Stanley, a fourth-year business administration student from Charlottetown, scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Dalhousie on Friday and tallied again in a 1-0 win over Saint Marys on Sunday. Michael Jordan Jersey . Its the second straight game Bell has scored in extra time for Kelowna, which beat the Brandon Wheat Kings 6-5 on Friday, and he now has four game-winning goals on the season. http://www.cheapbullsjerseyschina.com/ .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check. ATLANTA -- Shortstop Dansby Swanson, born and raised in the north Atlanta suburbs, had a big dream come true Wednesday night.Thats the only way you can really sum it up, he said. Playing for your hometown team and basically going out there and doing what youve worked your whole life for is pretty special.Swanson, the Braves top prospect and the No. 1 overall draft pick of 2015, had his contract selected from Double-A Mississippi and went 2 for 4 batting eighth in his debut.It came in another lackluster effort by the Braves -- a 10-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins in a matchup of the two worst teams in the majors.But the sparse crowd at Turner Field, not unusual this season for a team that dropped to 18-41 at home, gave Swanson loud cheers before and during the game. He walked up to his first at-bat with Ludacris Georgia playing over the speakers and received a standing ovation before lining out in the second inning.The 22-year-old Swanson met with family and friends before the game and loved hearing a group of them cheer from their seats about 30 rows up from home plate.Theyre nuts, I know, Swanson said. It was great to hear that. It means a lot to me. I love every single one of them and Im just glad they were able to be a part of it.Next year figures to be just as special. Swansons family home will be even closer as the Braves move into a new ballpark in Marietta, just a few miles from his former high school.The Braves made it 2-2 in the third on Freddie Freemans 24th homer. Other than that two-run shot, the focus was on Swanson, who singled in the fourth, struck out in the seventh and singled in the ninth.Swanson was running on adrenaline and excitement before the game.After a six-hour drive from Jackson, Mississippi, on Tuesday night, he arrived at his parents home in Marietta at 2 a.m. He got about four hours of sleep, took a surreal drive to Turner Field and was the first player to arrive in the clubhouse around 11 a.m., spending 30 minutes talking with Brian Snitker in the interim managers office.Hes a very well-grounded kid, very intelligent, Snitker ssaid before the game. Zach LaVine Jersey. He gets it. The intangibles are just dripping off this young man, not to mention his athletic abilities as a baseball player.Atlanta created a spot on the 25-man roster for Swanson after trading shortstop Erick Aybar to Detroit on Tuesday night and designating Mike Aviles, the utility man acquired in the deal, for assignment.Swanson was eager to get on the field and prove that he belongs in the big leagues. He was the first No. 1 overall pick to debut in the season following his draft year since Washington pitcher Stephen Strasburg in 2009.Expectations have been predictably high since last December, when the Braves traded pitcher Shelby Miller and minor leaguer Gabe Speier to Arizona for Swanson, center fielder Ender Inciarte and pitcher Aaron Blair.Swanson was projected to fill a big spot at his position after Atlanta traded away Gold Glove shortstop Andrelton Simmons the month before.Pressure is kind of something that comes about when I guess you dont believe in yourself as much, that you dont believe in something you can do or accomplish, Swanson said. I just worry about what I can control and theres no pressure on myself when I do that.Swanson spent just 127 games in the minors. The former Vanderbilt standout had a combined .275 average and nine homers and 55 RBI in 105 games between Mississippi and Class A Carolina.This is a very smart kid and a good player, President of Baseball Operations John Hart said. However he performs up here, I think its going to be beneficial for him and for us as we go to make a decision to what were going to do with the shortstop position next year.Swanson said he was too young to remember his first game at Turner Field, but by the time he was old enough to pay attention, Braves star third baseman Chipper Jones made a lasting impression.Every time I came to a game, Chipper always hit a home run, like five different times, Swanson said. It was pretty spectacular.
