    导出博客文章IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Peter Jok isnt shy about finding a shot. Cheap Air Max 95 Black . Hes going to get plenty of them this season.Jok scored 27 points on 11 of 19 shooting in 26 minutes and Iowa throttled Kennesaw State 91-74 on Friday night.Ahmad Wagner had 12 points and four blocks for the Hawkeyes, who are looking to reach the NCAA Tournament for the fourth straight season under Fran McCaffery.Jok -- expected to be one of the top scorers in the Big Ten after Iowa lost four of its top five scorers from last season -- reached the 20-point mark for the 12th time in his career against Kennesaw State. The senior averaged 16.1 points per game last year.McCaffery said no shot that Jok takes is a bad shot for the Hawkeyes.Sometimes Im selfish, Jok said, but at the end of the day its about the win. If I have to take 30 shots thats what Im going to do.Iowa built a 43-25 halftime lead and appeared to be on its way to a blowout win before Kennesaw State opened the second half on a 16-6 run that cut the lead to 49-41.But the Hawkeyes settled down and scored the next seven to secure the win in their season opener.Nick Masterson scored a career-high 29 points on 7 of 10 3-point shots for Kennesaw State. Ray Kendrick added 12 points.Cordell Pemsl and Nicholas Baer each scored 10 points for Iowa.BIG PICTUREIowa: This is clearly Joks team after the Hawkeyes lost their four other starters from last seasons team that won a game in the NCAA Tournament. The second and third scorers may change on a nightly basis with Iowas depth. McCaffery used nine players in the first seven minutes against the Owls.Kennesaw State: The Owls, picked to finish in the bottom half of the Atlantic Sun, showed grit in the second half when they cut Iowas lead to single digits. Its a good sign for Al Skinners team in his second year leading the program.FRESHMAN STANDOUTHighly touted freshman Tyler Cook had six points and 10 rebounds -- only the second Hawkeye freshman in the last 20 years with double-digit rebounds in their debut.Cook showed some nerves, shooting just 1 of 7 from the field and committing four turnovers. McCaffery isnt worried and said Cook was just trying to force things early.HIGHLIGHT REELIowas best play of the night started when Wagner made a big block in the paint midway through the first half. Jok scooped up the rebound and dribbled down the sideline before he threw a beautiful alley-oop pass to point guard Christian Williams for the two-handed dunk in transition.HE SAID ITThis guy is (expletive) killing us. Whos going to guard him? McCaffery barked at his team during a timeout after Masterson hit two open 3s to start the second half. McCaffery could be heard at least 12 rows up from the Iowa bench.UP NEXTIowa hosts Savannah State on Sunday for the Tigers second game in the state this weekend.

Cheap Air Max 95 Red . -- Jaye Marie Green shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday to increase her lead to five strokes after the second round of the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament. Cheap Air Max 95 For Sale . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. . Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. For the first time in the history of the AP poll, the top three teams will play true road games against ranked foes. The some College Football Playoff contenders could fade and others could emerge. Theres a lot going on for mid-September.Five things to know for week three of the college football season.BEST GAMENo. 3 Florida State at No. 10 Louisville.ESPN GameDay makes it first trip to Louisville for what is the biggest regular-season home game the Cardinals have played since moving into the Atlantic Coast Conference.Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson has put up crazy numbers in two games, accounting for 13 touchdowns for the No. 1 offense in the country. The Seminoles present a very different challenge. Deondre Francois and Dalvin Cook showed against Mississippi in the opener that they can put up points in bunches, too.And Florida State is no Syracuse on defense. The Seminoles, though, are not without concerns on that side of the ball against Jackson and company. Florida State safety Derwin James (knee) is out. He is one of the best and most versatile players in the country. Against all that Jackson and Louisville coach Bobby Petrino can throw at a defense, James would have been used as counter-punch all over the field.HEISMAN WATCHA breakout game on the road, leading a relatively inexperienced offense at No. 14 Oklahoma could thrust Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett toward the front of the Heisman Trophy race. The junior has accounted for nine touchdowns against not-so-great competition so far for the third-ranked Buckeyes.Barrett tends to get mentioned after some of top headliners of the 2016 season, such as Deshaun Watson and Christian McCaffrey, when the Heisman is being discussed. He is not as flashy as Watson and Jackson, but he finished fourth in the Heisman voting in 2014 when he was the Big Ten player of the year.NUMBERS TO KNOW2 -- Consecutive wins by No. 19 Mississippi against No. 1 Alabama. The Rebels have neverr won three straight in the series. Cheap Air Max 95 All Black. . In fact, they had never won two straight before the last two seasons and have only 10 wins total in 63 meetings with the Crimson Tide.10-4 -- Nebraska coach Mike Rileys record against Oregon while he was Oregon State coach, including losses in the last seven Civil War rivalry games. The 22nd-ranked Ducks come to Lincoln, Nebraska, Saturday.9-3 -- Michigan States record in its last 12 games against ranked opponents, including wins in five of the last six. The 12th-ranked Spartans visit No. 18 Notre Dame.OFF THE RADARArmy visits UTEP trying to improve to 3-0 for the first time since 1996. The Cadets are playing under unusually difficult circumstances. Earlier this week, cornerback Brandon Jackson was killed in a car accident.The Black Knights decided to play to honor their late teammate. Services for Jackson will be held Monday in New York.COACH IN NEED OF A WINSouthern Californias Clay Helton against No. 7 Stanford. Helton is in his first season as Trojans coach after being promoted from interim head coach at the end of last season. Since getting the gig to lead the storied but adrift program, Helton is 1-3. This season started with a humiliating loss to Alabama, players getting ejected from each game and two players being suspended during a sexual assault investigation.A blowout of Utah State last week at the Los Angeles Coliseum, which was about one-third empty, provided temporary relief. Now a trip to the Farm to face a Stanford team that has won six of eight against the Trojans while replacing USC as the standard-bearer program of the Pac-12.Helton is probably not in danger of being fired after one season, but beating Stanford could help him hit the reset button on a dicey start to his tenure.----Follow Ralph D.
