LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Oklahoma States relentless pressure caused havoc against lesser opponents through the first three games. Wholesale China Jerseys .It worked just as well in the Cowboys first true test this season.Jawun Evans had 35 points and five of Oklahoma States 18 steals, lifting the Cowboys to a 98-90 win over Connecticut Monday night in the opening round of the Maui Invitational.I love the fact we had 18 steals. Thats a great number, Oklahoma State coach Brad Underwood said. That means were being active and bothersome now.Oklahoma State (4-0) jumped on the Huskies from the opening tip, turning one steal after another into points in transition. The Cowboys hit five 3-pointers during an opening 18-3 run and finished 12 for 20 from the arc.Jeffrey Carroll and Phil Forte had 18 points each, helping Oklahoma State move on to the second round against No. 4 North Carolina or Chaminade.Evans also had six assists, four rebounds and one turnover.These two guys are awfully hard to guard and thats a great weapon, Underwood said of Evans and Forte.UConn (1-3) struggled with Oklahoma States constant pressure, turning it over 18 times. Jalen Adams had the most trouble with the Cowboys defense, turning it over six times in the opening five minutes and 10 overall.Adams finished with 34 points, six rebounds and six assists. Rodney Purvis added 20 points.The Huskies lost sophomore forward Terry Larrier to a left leg injury in the first half.I just love my kids effort. They tried to get back in the game, UConn coach Kevin Ollie said. I think we cut it to four, but it was just a little bit too late. And we just have to start off a little stronger and weve got to take care of the ball a little bit more.The Cowboys used their relentless pressure and ability to score in transition to average 107 points their first three games. Those came against lesser opponents, so Maui represented their first true test.Oklahoma State was at its harassing best against UConn early, forcing Huskies guard Jalen Adams to turn it over six times in the opening five minutes. The Cowboys turned many of those into transition 3-pointers, hitting 5 of 8 while opening with an 18-3 run.The Huskies held their ground for the rest of the half, though it did little good. Oklahoma State led 40-26 at halftime behind Evans 16 points.UConn finally started to get a handle on Oklahoma States pressure and got some defensive stops, trimming the Cowboys lead to seven with about five minutes left.The Huskies hit a pair of late 3-pointers, but Evans finished them off by hitting three free throws in the final 29 seconds.We definitely can build off of it, Purivs said. Our main thing is we just got to get off to a good start and take care of the basketball.LARRIERS INJURYLarrier was expected to be a big contributor this season after transferring from Virginia Commonwealth. He went down after being stripped of the ball, slapping the floor and screaming as trainers rushed out to him.Larrier was unable to put any weight on his left leg and stopped by to offer his teammates encouragement after being helped to the locker room.He left the arena on crutches and a heavy brace on his left leg.I know its a knee injury, but we dont know the significance of it yet, Ollie said.BIG PICTUREOklahoma States pressure defense withstood its first real test after beating three overmatched opponents and the Cowboys knocked down their 3s, something that will be key this season for them.The Huskies allowed themselves to get sped up by the Cowboys while falling into a big early hole and now face the possibility of playing without Larrier for an extended period.UP NEXTOklahoma State moves on the face the winner between No. 4 North Carolina and host Chaminade in Tuesdays second roundUConn plays the North Carolina-Chaminade loser.---More AP college basketball at http://collegebasketball.ap.orgWholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys .

Both players have lower body injuries that will keep them out of the lineup until at least January 31, which is the first game they can be activated from IR. http://www.cheapcnjerseystousa.com/ . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. BALTIMORE -- Mark Trumbo breathed some life into the Baltimore Orioles postseason hopes.Trumbo led off the 12th inning with his major league-leading 44th home run, and the Orioles rallied from a late two-run deficit to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Friday night.After getting swept in a four-game series by Boston, the Orioles remained a half-game behind Detroit for the ALs second wild card.This is the type of game you definitely want to win because it can be a real gut punch if it goes the other way, Trumbo said.Baltimore trailed 2-0 before Pedro Alvarez homered in the eighth off Enrique Burgos and Matt Wieters homered against Daniel Hudson leading off the ninth.Oliver Drake (1-0) pitched a scoreless 12th for his first big league win. Matt Koch (1-1) relieved to start the bottom half and Trumbo sent his first pitch over the left-field fence, setting off a celebration. It was Baltimores sixth walk-off home run this season.They did a great job of battling back and tying the game and we did a great job of stopping them from winning the game a couple of times, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. We had some great plays. We left a ball up there in the middle of the plate for Trumbo and we know what he can do with it. Weve seen it before.Baltimore, which stranded 14 runners, nearly won the game in the ninth. J.J. Hardy tried to score from second on Adam Jones single but was called out after the throw from left fielder Brandon Drury to catcher Welington Castillo, a play upheld by video review.I thought he was safe, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. The only thing they could have possibly said that they werent sure J.J. got there. The guy tagged him with the glove and had the ball in his throwing hand. Youve got to help me with that one. Im sure yyou all saw the same thing we did. China Jerseys Authentic. Another head-shaker. Weve had quite a few of them this year.Arizona built a lead against Yovani Gallardo on RBI doubles by Jake Lamb in the first and Jean Segura in the second. Gallardo has allowed 22 runs in the first inning this season.You never want to have a start in that way, giving up a run in the first, giving up a run in each of the first two innings, Gallardo said. Its going to happen.Arizonas Shelby Miller allowed just three hits in six innings and remained winless since June 20.Against a lineup like that, in a tough ballpark to pitch in, its always tough to throw zeroes, Miller said. And to get a good outing like that against that team . really the biggest thing was we made a lot of good plays on defense.DOMINANT BULLPENSix Orioles relievers -- Darren ODay, Brad Brach, Mychal Givens, Zach Britton, Tommy Hunter and Oliver Drake -- each threw one scoreless inning.TRAINERS ROOMDiamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke did not travel with the team because of shoulder stiffness. He is expected to have an MRI.Orioles: RHP Kevin Gausman will likely start Tuesday or Wednesday in Toronto after being pushed back because of soreness in an oblique.UP NEXTDiamondbacks: RHP Robbie Ray (8-13, 4.66 ERA), scheduled to start Saturday, entered the weekend fifth in the NL with 210 strikeouts. He is making his first career start against Baltimore.Orioles: LHP Wade Miley (8-13, 5.65 ERA) returns after leaving in the fifth inning Sept. 18 against Boston with a strained back muscle.
