Ish Smith Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .Dont think records. Think medal, the British cyclist recalled reading. Its about going out and killing off opposition now. Stay relaxed in the line. Deliver. Youll become the greatest by end of play because you are.But think about killing them off, the records come naturally if you dont chase them, just chase the opposition.They were just the reassuring words Wiggins needed before riding to victory on Friday in the team pursuit at the Rio de Janeiro Games. And they were written by Shane Sutton, the brash Australian who was technical director of British Cycling before leaving under a cloud in April.Sutton quit after being suspended while under investigation for making discriminatory remarks. It seemed quite a setback for the all-conquering British cycling project ahead of the Olympics. But Britain has remained the leading force in Rio de Janeiro, with Sutton remaining a private mentor to some of his former charges.Wiggins was part of the gold medal-winning team pursuit that enabled him to become Britains most decorated Olympian with eight medals.Wiggins is hoping the mastermind of British glory at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics regains his job, believing there isnt sufficient evidence to find Sutton guilty of wrongdoing.Female cyclist Jess Varnish accused Sutton of making derogatory comments about her body shape and told her to move on and have a baby after she failed to qualify for this years Olympics, according to a British newspaper account. Para-cyclist Darren Kenny also alleged that he heard Sutton refer to members of the disability team in derogatory terms. Sutton denies wrongdoing.He wants to come back, Wiggins said. I spoke to him two weeks ago and he said his life is pretty empty without this. I think he has the right to. Why not?Although Wiggins accepts interim team leader Andy Harrison has steadied the ship, the former Tour de France winner said Sutton should be credited with the Rio success.All this stuff is a result of (Suttons) work, Wiggins said. He was in charge of it. He put all the foundations in place for this week, over years.I came back to the track squad because he was in charge, he encouraged me to come back and I probably wouldnt have come back, had it been somebody else in charge 18 months ago.---Rob Harris can be followed at www.twitter.com/RobHarris and www.facebook.com/RobHarrisReports Mateen Cleaves Pistons Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . 10 VCU 85-67 on Thursday night at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. TAMPA, Fla. -- Turns out the offensively challenged Los Angeles Rams are capable of getting the ball in the end zone.Case Keenum threw for the teams first touchdown since relocating back to Los Angeles, and Todd Gurley rushed for two more scores Sunday in a 37-32 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The Rams (2-1), who did not have TD in the first two games of the season, also scored on Ethan Westbrooks 77-yard fumble return and Tavon Austins 43-yard reception in the fourth quarter before thunder and lightning caused a 69-minute weather delay with two minutes remaining. When you score points, which we did, youve got a chance, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said.The Rams, who used three field goals to beat Seattle 9-3 in Week 2, saw Keenum complete 14 of 25 passes for 190 yards, two TDs and one interception, which Bucs linebacker Kwon Alexander returned 38 yards for a first-quarter touchdown. In addition to throwing a TD pass to Austin for a late 11-point lead, he got the Rams on track early with his 44-yard scoring pass to Brian Quick for the franchises first TD as the L.A. Rams since 1994.Anytime you can get out there and have success early, it kind of settles you down as an offense, Keenum said.The defense did its part, too, holding off Jameis Winstons bid to rally the Bucs (1-2) in the closing seconds.Tampa Bay forced a punt after the lightning delay and drove from its 44 to the Rams 15 in 1:42 before Winston threw two incompletions and was tackled by Robert Quinn after a 10-yard run on the final play. Winston looked tentative and never really took off full-speed on the play, instead apparently still hoping to throw the ball after he crossed the line scrimmage.I was just trying to bait them, get closer to the end zone, Winston said. At that moment Ive got to give somebody a chance in the end zone.Winston threw for 405 yards and three TDs for Tampa Bay (1-2). He threw an interception that set up one of Gurleys two 1-yard touchdown runs, and was stripped by the Quinn on the fumble that Westbrooks returned up the left sideline for a 31-20 lead.Mike Evans 7-yard TD reception trimmed Tampa Bays deficit to 37-32 with 2:15 remaining.Im confident in my defense. Isiah Thomas Pistons Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Its the best defense in the league, and I believe that, Keenum said. I had no doubts they were going to stop them.WEATHER DELAYOfficials suspended play during the two-minute warning with the Rams facing third-and-11 from their 5. Fans were asked to clear the stands and seek coverage in stadium concourses before the approaching thunderstorm passed directly over the field, dumping heavy rain.DROUGHT ENDSThe Rams scored their first touchdown of the season, driving 75 yards on eight plays following the opening kickoff to take a 7-0 lead on Keenums 44-yard pass to Quick just over three minutes into the game. Gurleys TD, set up by ex-Buc Mark Barrons interception and 7-yard return to the Tampa Bay 22, trimmed Tampa Bays lead to 20-17 just before halftime. With Tampa Bay driving for a possible go-ahead score in the fourth quarter, Quinns sack/strip led to Westbrooks fumble return. It was the NFL-leading 18th fumble Quinn has forced since entering the league in 2012.FILLING INWith RB Doug Martin sidelined with a hamstring injury, Charles Sims made his first NFL pro start for the Bucs and rushed for 55 yards on 13 attempts. The third-year pro, who has been a key component of Tampa Bays passing game since Winston joined the team, also had six receptions for 69 yards.WATCH ME NOWThe Bucs unveiled a new video board system as part of a $140 million renovation of Raymond James Stadium. The system features two 9,600 square-foot boards on the north and south ends of the stadium, as well as four 2,300 square-foot tower walls. With more than 31,000 square feet of combined video display space, the team says it the third-largest video board system in the NFL.WINSTONS TARGETSEvans had 10 receptions for 132 yards and became the first player in Bucs history to catch a TD pass in three consecutive games to start a season. WR Adam Humphries finished with nine receptions for a career-best 100 yards, and TE Cameron Brate had TD receptions of 3 and 1 yards.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
