okie.The Chiefs depth at wide r

TUCSON, Ariz. Basketball Shoes Cheap China . -- Arizonas towering European tandem had a big night Tuesday.Wildcats 7-footers Dusan Ristic and Lauri Markkanen scored 18 points apiece, and No. 20 Arizona bounced back from its loss to Gonzaga with a 79-57 victory over UC Irvine.Ristic, a Serbian who was two points shy of his career high, scored 14 in the first half and finished with 10 rebounds. Markkanen, the standout Finnish freshman, had 13 points in the second.They are very different players with some shared traits, coach Sean Miller said.They are incredible kids, Miller said. I mean, in the classroom, off the court, in practice, as teammates, love the game, two of our hardest workers. ... Theyre from the other side of the world. Theyre not going home for Christmas and yet theyre really, really great kids.The Wildcats (7-2) pulled away in the final 6 1/2 minutes of the first half and never were threatened again.Jaron Martin scored 12 points and Max Hazzard had 10 for the Anteaters (4-5).Rawle Alkins added 14 points and Kadeem Allen 12 for the Wildcats, who shot 54 percent from the field to UC Irvines 38 percent.After a sluggish start, Arizona ended the first half on a 15-3 run to lead 39-23.The Wildcats jumped out to leads of 14-5 and 16-7, but Martins second 3-pointer cut Arizonas advantage to 24-20 with 6:40 left in the half. Ristic scored four of the next six points and Arizona was finally rolling.Allen scored seven and Ristic six in the run.Arizona led by as many as 30 points. UC Irvines only lead was 1-0.Markkanen was coming off the worst shooting game of his young career, when he went 4 for 14 -- 0 for 3 on 3s -- in Saturdays loss to Gonzaga. He was 7 of 10 against the Anteaters, including 4 of 6 on 3s.I didnt think about the last game, Markkanen said. My game is to let the game come to me, not force it. ... Im not worried about my shooting. My self-confidence is still up. Nothing changes.Ristics game is close to the basket, and he shot 8 of 11 from the field.All the outside guys did a great job of getting the ball to me, he said. And they (UC Irvine) played zone probably 80 percent of the game. A lot of times the low post was open and that is how I score the majority of my points.Down to seven scholarship players, Arizona switched from its traditional man-to-man to a 2/3 zone for a time in the second half. Miller said he did it to give his team some rest. He might do it again, but not often, he said.The more zone we play, the worse well be in man-to-man, he said.Anteaters coach Russell Turner thought perhaps the Wildcats player shortage would work to his teams advantage.I thought if we played our style of basketball, he said, played good defense and rebounded well, that we would have had a chance to keep this game close given their roster situation. But we werent really able to maintain our focus on doing the things we said.BIG PICTUREUC Irvine: The Anteaters lost four starters from last seasons team. They are big but not very athletic inside. If they expect to be competitive in the Big West, the Anteaters need to shoot better from long range. They went 4 of 20 on 3s against Arizona.Arizona: The Wildcats needed a win, regardless of the opponent, after dropping two of their last three -- to Butler and Gonzaga on neutral courts -- with a tough game coming up at Missouri.STILL SHORT-HANDEDWith starting point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright sidelined by an ankle injury and the status of Allonzo Trier still unclear, the Wildcats go with just two scholarship players on the bench.Jackson-Cartwright, whose right ankle remains in a boot, might not be back until sometime in January. Trier could finally have his situation resolved soon, but thats been said before. The school has not officially given a reason for his absence but its apparently an eligibility issue.UP NEXTUC Irvine: The Anteaters face Pomona-Pitzer on Friday in their second home game of the season.Arizona: The Wildcats play on an opponents home court for the first time this season at Missouri on Saturday.

JOSEPH, Mo. -- For Tyreek Hill, each burst of speed and every impressive catch offer another chance to change the questions he faces.The Kansas City Chiefs rookie will never escape the sordid details of his past, but hes here now and ready to earn a spot on the roster.Hill continues to impress on the field during the early portions of training camp, including a highlight-reel catch he made getting past NFL defensive rookie of the year Marcus Peters on Tuesday. The reasons for success on the field cant be ignored.Hes fast, Peters said. But its fun. Thats the competition we need. Thats that explosiveness were going to need from him in the season.The Chiefs selected Hill in the fifth round of the draft. A year ago, Hill had pleaded guilty to abusing and strangling his girlfriend and was kicked off the Oklahoma State football team over the 2014 incident. He spent last season at West Alabama, where he juggled school and football with counseling sessions and other court-mandated service work. His probation isnt scheduled to end until 2018.The Chiefs faced some backlash from fans over the pick. For his part, Hill insists interactions with fans so far have remained cordial.The fans have been great, Hill said. Just signing autographs.The Chiefs list him at wide receiver, and he wears No. 81 but he has experience running the ball and in the return game.(Hes) a good a football player, Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub said. Im not surprised by (what he does), but the guys that are going against him are surprised by it. Because you can see it. They think they have an angle, and then all of a sudden -- bam -- they dont. Hes also got the ability to change speeds. Hell show you one speed and then all of a sudden he has another gear.Hill started his career at Garden City (Kan.) Community College before going on to Oklahoma State. While with the Cowboys, he amassed more than 1,800 total yards in his lone season. His 996 total return yards were second in Division I and included a 92-yard punt return vs. Oklahoma that eventually set up a monumental overtime win. Five days later, Hill found himself in jail. Cheap Basketball Shoes Online. ills contributions at West Alabama were more mundane, but the obvious speed, which helped him win a pair of medals running sprints in the 2012 World Junior Track and Field Championships, never went away.Peters, a first-round pick who recorded eight picks and returned two for touchdowns last year, entered the league with his own questions about his character only to become an immediate star. He offered some simple advice for Hill.Stay humble; stay hungry, Peters said. Because when the lights come on, you get to have a lot more fun. Hes a real energetic person, likes to dance and do all those things, so I just tell him to stay hungry and his times going to come.On the play in Tuesdays practice, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw deep down the right sideline to find Hill a few steps behind Peters. Hill reeled in the catch and gave one excited fan a quick high-five in celebration.Peters told Hill: Good job, rookie.The Chiefs depth at wide receiver behind star Jeremy Maclin seems to be fluid entering the first preseason game. Frankie Hammond and Albert Wilson have a lot of experience, although Wilson missed practice Wednesday. In addition, the Chiefs added intriguing free agent veterans Mike Williams and Rod Streeter.Ive always been told, `Act like youve been there before, Hill said, so its just another moment in my life. Just make a play. When its your turn, just make a play.The opportunity to just be a rookie in training camp doesnt seem lost on Hill at this point. He knows he needs to stay on track in his personal life and see if his talent can continue to shine beyond practice.To me, it still doesnt mean nothing, Hill said. Im just like everybody else. Ive got to get better each and every day. Thats my biggest thing: just staying focused, staying in the playbook, listening to the vets and doing what the coaches tell me to do.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
