ed out as the fall was coming do

WICHITA, Kan. Kelvin Benjamin Jersey . -- Wichita State will carry its pursuit of perfection into the Missouri Valley tournament. Cleanthony Early scored 19 points, Ron Baker added 13 and the second-ranked Shockers rolled to a 68-45 victory over Missouri State on Saturday, easily putting away a team that had given them fits this season. Relying on the same stubborn defence that carried it on last years improbable March run, Wichita State (31-0, 18-0) became the first team since Saint Josephs in 2004 to enter its league tournament unbeaten. The Shockers will have a first-round bye in St. Louis next week. Missouri State (19-11, 9-9) had them in trouble when they met Jan. 11 in Springfield, Mo., but the Bears blew a 19-point second-half lead and ultimately lost 72-69 in overtime. They never came close to making it a game Saturday, trailing by double-digits in the opening minutes. The Shockers are off to the best start since UNLV began 34-0 and lost in the 1991 national title game. Theyre also off to the best start by a Missouri Valley team since Indiana State, led by Larry Bird, won its first 33 games and fell to Michigan State in the 1979 title game. The Shockers last loss came in the Final Four, too -- to eventual champ Louisville last year. Putting this one away early gave a sellout crowd that had braved the threat of freezing rain ample opportunity to celebrate. Waving signs that applauded their unblemished record, fans packed inside Koch Arena serenaded a senior class led by Early that managed to elevate the program from a solid mid-major into a national power in the midst of a memorable season. Along with fellow seniors Chadrack Lufile, Kadeem Coleby and Nick Wiggins, Early gave coach Gregg Marshall a bear hug when he checked out for the final time in the closing minutes. Jarmar Gulley scored 15 points to lead Missouri State, which was dominated on the boards, in transition and just about everywhere else in losing its 10th straight against ranked teams. Unlike the first meeting, when it was Wichita State that stumbled early, Missouri State missed 18 of its first 22 shots, suffocated under token pressure and never got into a rhythm. When the Bears werent blowing layups, they were turning the ball over, leading to some easy baskets at the other end. Wichita State shot 57 per cent from the field in the first half, a big reason why it had built a 20-point lead just before the break. The trio of Early, Baker and Fred VanVleet picked up where it left off out of the locker room, Early scoring quickly and Baker hitting a long 3-pointer to keep Missouri State at bay. In fact, the only interesting moment of the second half came when Lufile was fouled with about 10 minutes to go. After missing his first seven free throw attempts, the big senior forward -- with the crowd rising to its feet -- finally got one to rattle home. Of course, it hardly mattered that Lufiles foul shooting wasnt perfect. Everything else about Wichita State is these days. Carolina Panthers Jerseys .

LeBron James scored the last of his 32 points on a layup that put Miami up for good with 11.BABE RUTH CALLING HIS SHOTIt was late in the Babes career as the Yankees were in Chicago for the World Series. Midway through Game 3, the Babe pointed to centre field while at the plate against Charlie Root. The ensuing home run on the next pitch has become one of the most talked about moments in baseball history.This is what the moment would have looked like had the Babe and Root been tweeting as the events transpired.STEVE BARTMAN INCIDENTFor modern day Cubs fans, this moment is as bad as anything that the team has done in their lifetimes. The Cubs were facing the Marlins in the 03 NLCS, up 3-0 in the 8th inning with a 3-2 series lead. Marlins second basemen Luis Castillo hit a pop up down the left field line and left fiielder Moises Alou tracked it as it faded towards the Wrigley bleachers. Scott Simonson Jersey. What transpired next will still make cubs fans shake their head. A Cubs fan by the name of Steve Bartman reached out as the fall was coming down and disrupted Alou from trying to make the catch. We have seen this happen countless times as foul balls head into the stands, but the stakes of this game made this so much more painful. The Cubs went on to blow the game and lose their shot at their first NL pennant since 1945. Everyone wants to catch a foul ball - but few suspect that it will change their lives. Lets take a look at what it would have looked like for Bartman if he was live tweeting the events on that fateful night. 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 ' ' '
