transition the defense from a 3-4 to a 4-3 scheme.The res

FORT WORTH, Texas -- When TCUs lead was cut to one soon after halftime, the Horned Frogs ran a pair of set plays. Ramon Foster Jersey . Brandon Parrish hit 3-pointers both times.Parrish scored 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting in his first start of the season, including those big 3s in a 35-second span as the Horned Frogs went on to a 79-60 victory over Jacksonville State on Friday night. They improved to 3-0 under new coach Jamie Dixon.It was a big momentum shift in the game, coach called the right play, and we executed really well, Parrish said. My guys got me the ball in open areas, and I just shot it with confidence.The only player to start every TCU game last season, Parrish had come off the bench the first two games. The 6-foot-6 senior started against Jacksonville State (1-3) while second-leading scorer JD Miller served a one-game suspension for violation of team rules. Dixon said Miller would be back for the next game.Freshman guard Desmond Bane has been in double figures in all three games for TCU after scoring 14 points. Alex Robinson, the former Texas A&M transfer who had to sit out last season, had 10 points and five assists.Malcolm Drumwright led the Gamecocks with 19 points. Norbertas Giga and Erik Durham each had 11 points and eight rebounds.After Jacksonville State cut the gap to 36-35 right after halftime, Parrish had the consecutive 3-pointers. The first was from the left side in front of the TCU bench, and then he hit from the right corner.His attitude, his energy -- if he was back next year, Id have him run for student body president, Dixon said. It would be good.BIG PICTUREJacksonville State: The Gamecocks and first-year coach Ray Harper are piling up the miles together. This was their fourth consecutive road game to start the season. They will play 15 of their first 16 games away from their Alabama campus.TCU: The Horned Frogs are coming together under coach Jamie Dixon, with a mix of veteran players and talented freshmen. The return of Kenrich Williams is a boost, as he was the teams top rebounder as a sophomore two years ago before microfracture knee surgery. In his first game since the 2015 Big 12 tournament, he had nine points in 20 minutes.BUILDING TRUSTParrish said the biggest thing being stressed by Dixon is playing together. We can build trust amongst each other, so when were out there on the court, we can hold each other accountable and we can trust each other to be in the right spot and doing the right things, Parrish said. Were going to be a better team overall.BETTER THAN HALF WITH FEW GIVEAWAYSTCU shot 50 percent overall (28 of 56) and was just slightly better on 3-pointers by hitting 52 percent (11 of 21). Along with the good shooting, the Frogs had only eight turnovers.UP NEXTJacksonville State plays its first home game under Harper on Tuesday night against Dalton State College, their only game at home until Jan. 5.TCU wraps up its season-opening four-game homestand Monday against Illinois State before going to Las Vegas for two games. Those are the only games the Frogs will play out of Texas before Big 12 Conference play begins.---More AP college basketball: and Coty Sensabaugh Jersey . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. Donnie Shell Jersey . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. . Listen to the game live on TSN Radio 1050 at 7pm et. The Raptors traded Rudy Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to the Sacramento Kings on Monday, in exchange for Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes. EUGENE, Ore. -- This much is clear: Oregons slide this season can no longer be looked at as a mere stumble.With a four-game losing streak, the Ducks are in a hole that has put an 11-year run in the postseason in distinct jeopardy. The Ducks are 2-4 overall and sit at the bottom of the Pac-12 North.Some fans are calling for head coach Mark Helfrich to be fired. Others are questioning the wisdom of new assistant Brady Hokes defensive changes, and even the use of graduate transfers at quarterback for the past two seasons rather than fostering long-term player development.Whatever the reason, Oregons slide is a reminder of how hard it is to get good. And stay good.When Helfrich took the job at the start of 2013, he had the daunting job of replacing coach Chip Kelly, who orchestrated Oregons hyperdrive spread-option offense and led the Ducks to their first national championship game.Then he had the daunting task of replacing Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota. Oregon lured a pair of graduate transfers, first Vernon Adams and then this year Dakota Prukop. Adams struggled with injury his lone season with the Ducks, and Prukop lost the starting job after five starts this season to freshman Justin Herbert.Helfrich led the Ducks to the first College Football Playoff championship game just two seasons ago. But the cracks started showing last year when the Ducks went 9-4, their first season with fewer than 10 wins since 2007. Losses to Michigan State, then at home to Utah and Washington State pushed Oregon out of the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2009.The ultimate embarrassment came in the Alamo Bowl, when the Ducks surrendered a 31-0 lead and TCU staged the biggest comeback in bowl history to win 47-41 in triple overtime.This season the shortfalls have been amplified. Heres a look at whats going on for Oregon on both sides of the ball:OFFENSE: As demonstrated by the Ducks 70-21 loss to No. 5 Washington last weekend, Oregons once-dominant high-speed offense appears to have lost a step.The Ducks led the Pac-12 in total offense last season with an average of 538.2 yards a game. They also led the league in rushing offense with an average of 279.9 yards a game. They averaged a conference-best 43 points a game. Marcus Gilbert Jersey. regon still leads the league in rushing with an average of 257.8 yards a game, but in scoring theyve dropped to sixth with an average of 36.8 points per game. Total offense has dropped to 494.8 yards a game, fourth in the league.Oregon made a big change last weeked at quarterback, replacing Prukop with Herbert. The first true freshman to start for the Ducks since 1983, Herbert threw for 179 yards and two touchdowns in the loss to the Huskies.Helfrich said after the game that the Ducks would be staying with Herbert.Another issue to consider: Running back Royce Freeman was absent for half of the game against Washington, and the reason is unclear because Oregon doesnt discuss injuries. He also missed part of Oregons loss at Nebraska and the loss to Colorado the following week.DEFENSE: The struggles of last season have been amplified as Hoke has tried to install a new defensive scheme -- no easy task.Oregon ranked last in scoring defense last season, allowing 37.5 points a game, and in total defense, with 485.5 yards allowed a game. The Ducks hired Hoke, the former Michigan coach, as defensive coordinator. Hes tried to transition the defense from a 3-4 to a 4-3 scheme.The results so far have been pretty dismal. Oregon is ranked 126th out of 128 FBS schools in total defense, allowing just over 522 yards a game. The Ducks are 125th in scoring defense, allowing 41.8 points.Athletic director Rob Mullens spoke this week to Duck Insider, a sports radio show produced in part by Oregon, and said hes standing by the coaches.Were six games into the season and not where anyone wants to be, but there still is an opportunity to turn this a little bit and start to see some positive results, Mullens said. As I talk to Mark, they go back to work and get back in it. We have a wonderful group of student-athletes and we need to do everything we can to support the coaches and the student-athletes, especially the seniors as they go this last go-round.Oregon has a bye this week to work through some of its issues. 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 ' ' '
