THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands -- Marcus Foster admits that No. 12 Creighton really hasnt faced a tough test yet, even after beating No. 9 Wisconsin a week ago.But the Bluejays got such a test Monday night, getting pushed to the limit by Mississippi before coming away with a 86-77 victory in the championship game of the Paradise Jam tournament.Foster scored 25 points, and three other players finished in double figures for Creighton (5-0), which climbed 10 places in the AP Top 25 rankings released earlier Monday.This team is very tight, and were very close, said Foster, the tournaments MVP. Weve just got to stick together when we face adversity.Khyri Thomas added 16 points, Toby Hegner had 12 and Justin Patton 11 for the Bluejays (5-0), who trailed by as many as 11 points in the first half and were down 50-40 with 18:44 left in the second half.There was a lot of pointing fingers, a lot of arguing with the coaches, a lot of arguing with teammates, Foster said. At halftime, we talked and came closer as a family. We have to stick together when we face adversity. We havent faced adversity all season, but we did tonight.Creighton began its rally at that point, whittling down the Rebels lead until tying the score twice, the last at 74-74 with 5:45 left. Thomas then put the Bluejays ahead to stay with his three-point play with 3:40 remaining.That ignited a 12-3 Creighton run to close out the game, capped by a pair of free throws from Thomas with 40 seconds left.It was their offensive rebounding, Creighton coach Greg McDermott said. You cant run if you dont get a rebound. They were so physical on the glass . and we cant play with any pace if that happens. But we stuck with it, and the guys stuck together. Defensively and in rebounding, we stepped up when we had to.Deandre Burnett and Rasheed Brooks scored 22 points each, and Cullen Neal added 10 for Mississippi (4-1).Changing our defenses slowed them down a little bit, Rebels coach Andy Kennedy said. But in the second half, it came down to them making plays. Our kids really battled, but when a Top 20 team shoots 16 of 26 from 3, its hard.BIG PICTUREMississippi: Dominated the boards in the first half, with a 26-11 advantage. That included a 12-4 edge in offensive rebounds, leading to 19 second-chance points for the Rebels. They finished with a 37-27 advantage, 17-7 in offensive rebounds and 20-4 edge in second-chance points.Creighton: The Bluejays, fresh off a 10-spot jump in the Top 25 rankings, shot 52.5 percent from the field (31 of 59), and made 16 of 26 3-pointers. That offset Mississippis advantage in second-chance points.TURNING POINTAfter tying the score for the final time, Thomas scored eight of Creightons final 12 points. After his three-point play, he connected on a 3-pointer, then capped things off with a pair of free throws with 45 seconds remaining.STAT LINECreighton reserve center Zach Hanson had missed just two field goals in the Bluejays first four games (16 of 18). But against Mississippi, he was held to 1 of 7 shooting before coming out of the game with an ankle injury in the second half.POLL IMPLICATIONSCreightons big move up the Top 25 rankings may have been a little premature. At the very least, Mississippi may get some consideration from the Top 25 voters when the next rankings come out.UP NEXTMississippi: Hosts fellow Paradise Jam participant Montana on Thursday.Creighton: Hosts Loyola (Md.) on Saturday.

Duchene scored two goals and had an assist, helping the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Friday night to match the best 10-game start in team history. Ecco Mens Dress Shoes Clearance . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team. That came on the heels of Bryan Murray taking the unusual step of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the players himself. .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons.MIAMI -- Ike Davis didnt waste any time in giving the Mets the lead in the seventh. Davis smacked a first-pitch fastball to right field that scored Marlon Byrd from first base for a go-ahead RBI double in a three-run inning that lifted New York to a 6-5 victory over the Miami Marlins on Monday night. "Im seeing the ball well," Davis said. "I was just looking for something out over the dish to be able to hit hard somewhere." Byrd slid in just underneath the tag of catcher Jeff Mathis. "Youre hoping your safe," Byrd said. "If you see the replay, (home plate umpire) Andy (Fletcher) is right there on top of the call so he saw everything. He had a great view and I was just glad he called me safe." The Mets also got RBI singles from Daniel Murphy and Byrd in the seventh to overcome a 5-3 deficit after leading 3-0. "It energized us a lot," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "It brought us out of a huge hole and I think its a great step forward." The win snapped a five-game losing streak to the Marlins and a three-game losing streak overall. Murphy drove in three runs for the Mets and is hitting .356 (31 for 87) with 19 RBIs in his last 20 games. "Just seeing the ball a little bit better, I dont know, its baseball," Murphy said. "Sometimes you get beat up and sometimes you dont." David Aardsma (2-0) pitched an inning in relief of Jeremy Hefner for the win. Bobby Parnell retired Giancarlo Stanton with runners on first and third to end it for his 21st save in 25 opportunities. Jeff Mathis drove in two runs for Miami. Miamis Jacob Turner was in line for the win when he was pulled with a 5-3 lead after 6 1-3 innings. But relievers Mike Dunn and A.J. Ramos (3-4) struggled to get out of the seventh as the Mets scored three runs. "Obviously, in my mind I drew up totally differently," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. Murphys RBI single off Dunn pulled the Mets to 5-4. Ramos then relieved Dunn and gave up a tying hit by Byrd. Davis then gave the Mets the lead. Parnell, New Yorks fifth pitcher, allowed a one out pinch-hit single too Greg Dobbs in the ninth. Ecco Jack Sneaker White. Pinch-runner Juan Pierre stole second with two outs. Christian Yelich walked and Pierre advanced to third on defensive indifference setting it up for Stanton, who grounded out to first base to end the game. The Mets scored three runs in the third inning with two outs to go up 3-0. Murphy started the scoring with a two-run single and scored on an RBI double by David Wright. "There were times I felt I had the ability to throw the pitch where I needed to and there were times when I felt like it wasnt there at all," Turner said. "Its kind of frustrating." Miamis Ed Lucas tripled to deep centre to score Stanton to cut the deficit to 3-1 in the fourth. The Marlins then loaded the bases with one out, but Hefner appeared to get out of the jam when he got Mathis to pop out and Turner hit a soft grounder to shortstop Omar Quintanilla. However, the groundball went under Quintanillas glove for an error allowing two runs to score. Murphy alertly scooped up the ball and got Jacob Marsinick caught in a rundown to keep the game tied at 3. Mathis hit a two-run single in the sixth to give Miami a 5-3 lead. Hefner allowed five runs -- three earned -- four hits and a career-high five walks in 5 1-3 innings. "To just give free passes away like that, that could have really hurt us and cost us the ballgame, but its a credit to the bullpen and a credit to Murph and the guys that came through in the clutch hitting to come and win the game," Hefner said. NOTES: Aardsma is one of four relievers in the NL to not allow an inherited run to score this season. ... Stanton is batting .481 (13 of 27) with four home runs in eight RBIs in his last eight games at Marlins Park. ... Marlins pitchers Jose Fernandez and Steve Cishek were selected co-winners of the National Leagues player of the week. "Weve played some pretty good baseball and those guys have been a big part of it," Redmond said. ... The Mets will send RHP Zack Wheeler (4-1, 3.72 ERA) to the mound on Tuesday for his first start against the Marlins, who will counter with RHP Nathan Eovaldi (2-1, 3.54 ERA).
