LOS ANGELES -- Monique Billings had 16 points and eight rebounds to help No. Adidas Paul Byron Jersey . 10 UCLA rout Hawaii 72-49 on Sunday for its 17th consecutive victory at Pauley Pavilion.UCLA (6-1) raced to a 19-2 run, and Billings scored 12 of those points -- mostly inside the paint. The Bruins led 21-3 after the first quarter. Hawaii (2-6) missed 10 of 11 shots in the period.Billings also had three assists, three steals and two blocks.I would say its the focus, having a will to dominate, Billings said. ... Just be tough every possession.Hawaii (2-6) had great trouble setting up plays offensively and breaking UCLAs fullcourt press. Guard Sarah Toeaina led the Rainbow Wahine with 16 points, and Briana Harris had 10 points, all in the second half. Hawaii suited up and played just seven players.Nicole Kornet hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the second quarter to give UCLA a 45-17 lead at halftime. She and teammate Kari Korver had a high-flying celebration afterward.It went in, it was fun and it was a good way to end the half, Korbut said.The Bruins had as much as a 33-point lead in the third quarter.Hawaii improved in the second half and outscored UCLA 32-27 in the third and fourth quarters combined.We started to believe that we could at least complete with them, maybe not beat them but compete with them, Hawaii coach Laura Beeman said. I also think UCLA held the reigns back a little to work their stuff, and that allowed us to get in a little rhythm a little bit. I think we competed better in the second half and didnt turn the ball over as much.BIG PICTUREHawaii played back-to-back Top-10 opponents in Mississippi State and UCLA, giving it an opportunity to test its mettle against the countrys best. Hawaii must work on breaking a fullcourt press and its interior defense.UCLA didnt get much out of the game except that it throttled an opponent it was expected to and continued its home dominance at Pauley Pavilion. The Bruins have 21 straight wins over unranked teams at home.POLL IMPLICATIONSUCLA is likely to stay in the Top 10 after its lone game of the week.QUOTE OF THE GAMERight after our practice ended ... the whole team and all of our scout guys were totally cheering them on. Theyre a great bunch of young men, and weve appreciated the support of their coaching staff. I honestly think theres not a better mens point guard and womens point guard in all of college basketball. Its just a fun time to be a part of UCLA basketball. -- UCLA coach Cori Close on the success of the mens and womens teams and watching the end of UCLAs win over Kentucky on SaturdaySTAT OF THE GAMEUCLA held Hawaii to just three points in the first quarter, the fewest points allowed in a quarter since the womens game instituted four quarters instead of two halves last season.UP NEXTHawaii returns home and is off for a week before hosting Hawaii Pacific on Dec. 11. Then its back to its usual schedule logging plenty of air miles as it plays at Nevada and Boise State.UCLA is off for another week before it hosts Michigan on Dec. 11. After that, the Bruins play three consecutive road games -- at UC Santa Barbara, South Carolina and North Carolina AT&T.

Oaklands loss to Seattle clinched the ALs best record for the Red Sox with one day to spare in the regular season. "I think everybody was kind of watching," catcher David Ross said. "Demp (Ryan Dempster) came out before he went to the bullpen and was just yelling that they lost. .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have placed centre Cody Hodgson on injured reserve and recalled two players from their AHL affiliate in Rochester. ROME -- After becoming the most expensive transfer in Italian football history, Gonzalo Higuain quickly showed his value by coming off the bench to score the winner in Juventus 2-1 victory over Fiorentina on the opening day of Serie A.Higuain, who came up from Napoli in a 90-million euro ($99-million) deal, scored from a tight angle after a shot from Sami Khedira was deflected -- eight minutes and 26 seconds after he came on and with just his third touch.Earlier Saturday, substitute Diego Perotti converted two penalties before setting up another goal as likely title-challenger Roma produced a second-half outburst to beat visiting Udinese 4-0 in the Italian league opener.In Turin, Khedira had put Juventus ahead with a header from the center of the area midway through the first half, meeting a cross from Giorgio Chiellini.Fiorentina was unable to produce a single shot in the first half but Nikola Kalinic equalized in the 70th with a header following a corner.Five minutes later, Higuain was celebrating and the Juventus Stadium was rocking in welcoming its new star.Fans had started cheering the moment Higuain got off the bench to warm up.They made me feel their affection from the first moment, Higuain said. Hopefully I can repay this affection with goals and victories.Higuain scored 36 times for Napoli last season to break a 66-year-old Serie A record for goals scored in a single season.Higuain raised some doubts when he showed up overweight at his opening training session with Juventus, which was likely why he didnt start.Im always confident, I just had to work, he said.Former Barcelona winger Dani Alves also impressed in his Juventus debut.Having also signed crafty playmaker Miralem Pjanic from Roma, expert defender Medhi Benatia from Bayern Munich and prized winger Marco Pjaca from Dinamo Zagreb, Juventus has assembled a squad that is expected to contend for the Champions League title.Few observers expect Juventus to be challenged in Serie A, where it is attempting to win a record sixth consecutive title.We want to win all the titles possible this year, Higuain said. But theres a long way to go. Were only at the start.Since Serie A was founded in 1929, no club has won more than five straight tittlles. Cheap Canadiens Jerseys Authentic. Torino won five consecutive titles from 1943-49 (including a season that was canceled due to World War II), Inter Milan took five straight from 2006-10 and Juventus claimed a handful from 1931-35 before its current streak.It was also a perfect start for Roma as the Giallorossi prepare for the return leg of the Champions League playoffs on Tuesday against Porto, following a 1-1 opening leg.It was really important to win and start well so we can approach the Porto match serenely, Perotti said.Perottis first spot kick came in the 65th after Edin Dzeko used a sharp change of direction to make defender Danilo fall on top of him.Perotti played a part in drawing the second penalty, sending a through ball to Mohammed Salah, who sped past the defense, prompting Emmanuel Badu to tug him over.Dzeko made it 3-0 from close range with his ninth Serie A goal in the 82nd and Salah finished things off two minutes later after taking a long pass from Perotti.Roma has finished in the top three positions of the Italian league each of the last three seasons and is looking to take home a trophy this campaign.Since joining Roma midway through last season, Perotti has scored five goals and provided seven assists in 16 Serie A appearances. More is expected of the Argentine this season after Pjanics departure.Rested at the start with the Porto match in mind, Perotti replaced Stephan El Shaarawy early in the second half.I feel great with Roma. I feel the confidence of my teammates and the entire club, Perotti said. Im always thinking about helping the squad, even off of the bench.Captain Francesco Totti, beginning his 25th season with Roma, never left the bench -- and fellow Giallorossi stalwart Daniele De Rossi also did not play.Salah and Dzeko produced several early chances before a sparse crowd at the Stadio Olimpico.Dzeko had a tough time settling in at Roma last season after a prolific spell at Manchester City but he made a big impact in this match, touching the ball 10 times in the oppositions box, more than any other player.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
