If we could have 12 turnovers tonight I would have been thrilled. That was one of our biggest concerns (with TCU) . the truth of turnovers, in my mind, are to be able to play aggressively with a slow mind and making good decisions. We did a great job tonight.The Horned Frogs (8-1), who lost for the first time this season, led 3-1 a minute into the game before SMU (7-3) went on an eight-point run in the next two minutes and led the rest of the way. The Mustangs are 6-0 at home.Opportunity for us to learn from it, TCU coach Jamie Dixon said. Its our first loss. I think (SMU) learned from their losses, so now we have to go do something about it as we get ready for Saturday.SMU shot 44 percent from the field, including 13-of-24 shooting in the second half, and outscored TCU 28-20 in the paint.

PETERSBURG, Fla.After debuting off the bench against the U.S. Eagles, fly half Liam Underwood makes his first rugby start for the Canadian senior squad Wednesday against Fiji in the Pacific Nations Cup. Underwood and the Canadians will be facing a dangerous but likely tired Fijian side at Twin Elm Rugby Park in Ottawa. The Pacific Islanders have had to travel 16 time zones since knocking off 15th-ranked Japan 22-8 on Saturday on a waterlogged field at Lautoka, Fiji. The win moved Fiji into 13th place in the IRB world rankings, dropping Canada one spot to No. 14. Canadian coach Kieran Crowley called the date with Fiji "a massive challenge." Thats because the bulk of the Fijian squad plays professionally in Europe. And they showed off a powerful scrum and a speedy set of backs against Japan. Marquee names include captain Akapusi Qera, who plays for Englands Gloucester, and former sevens skipper Sireli Bobo (Racing Metro, France), who needed just 33 seconds to score in his return to the full side. The Fijian side against Japan was an experienced one, with an average age of 29. The Canadians, who opened up their tournament with a 16-9 win over the 16th-ranked Americans in Edmonton on Saturday, face a hectic schedule of their own. After Fiji, they host No. 11 Tonga on Saturday in Kingston, Ont., with games to follow against No. 9 Ireland on June 15 in Toronto and Japan on June 19 in Nagoya. All but the Ireland game are part of the newly expanded Pacific Nations Cup. Its five games in 25 days, prompting Crowley to manage his squad carefully. The former All Black has introduced Underwood and six others into his starting 15 against Fiji. None of the changes are injury-enforced. Crowley is looking to use his full squad to better manage the crowded schedule and to blood some of his younger players. "Weve got to find out about them," he said. That includes Underwood, who turned 22 Monday. He plays for Queens University and the Ontario Blues and has represented Canada ttwice at the under-20 IRB Junior World Trophy. Francisco Lindor Indians Jersey. "Hes worked hard in training and hes certainly a players who got a bit of ability, I think," said Crowley. "Its going to be interesting to see how he goes." "A silky runner," said Mark Winokur, general manager of the Ontario Blues. The average age of the Canadian side that faced the U.S. was 25. More veterans are joining the team as the tournament progresses. London Irish forward Jebb Sinclair and sevens star Nathan Hirayama will be on the bench Wednesday after missing the U.S. game. Veteran fullback James Pritchard is also back in camp after recovering from a broken arm and finishing out his club duties with the Bedford Blues in England.
