Luckily enough for me my younger sister is a match, Lealiifano told tPHOENIX -- Blaring dubstep beats and electronic music build like a massive wave barreling toward the shore, the students dropping lower and lower as Lil John shouts Higher! Higher!They hold position as the chorus of We hit turbulence! rings out, then spring into the air as if propelled by the bass drop. Charles Harris Jersey . The beat shifts dramatically and they start bouncing in synch with it, arms waving, streamers flying, dancing like exploding kernels in an arena-sized popcorn machine .Welcome to college basketballs biggest dance party, hosted by Grand Canyons Havocs, who are quickly making a name for themselves as one of the nations best student sections.Youve got something special here, really special, Louisville coach Rick Pitino said after experiencing the Havoc of GCU Arena on Dec. 3. Whether we go to Duke, Kentucky, nothing was as tough as that environment tonight.Once on the verge of bankruptcy, Grand Canyon turned to a for-profit model in 2004 and later decided to make mens college basketball a cornerstone for its future.The private school made a big splash by hiring former Phoenix Suns player Dan Majerle as coach, and he has pushed the program to new heights each season as it heads toward full Division I status next year.The Havocs have risen with it.They were created in 2013-14 to be the rowdiest part of the student section then known as The Monsoon (havoc being the most destructive part of the storm).It was far from devastating; the Havocs barely filled the first two rows of the three student sections the first season.Then it started to spread: a few hundred the second season, over 1,000 last season and into full mayhem this year, more than 2,000 face-painted, costume-wearing Havocs dancing and shouting at every game.Its really has transcended into this culture on campus, said Brandon Kaiser, one of the original Havoc leaders. Its become bigger than just basketball and that was one of our goals, to create a community.A growing national identity has come with it.Nearly every coach who visits GCU Arena marvels at the pregame buildup, the choreographed dances, decibels that rival a Metallica concert.Pitino had a hard time calling plays in the huddle when GCU Arena was Havocking, and San Diego State coach Steve Fisher had to ask for a timeout three times before the official heard him during a game last week.In college basketball, my 40-plus years, (that) was the toughest crowd Ive ever faced, Pitino said. Awesome.College basketball has its share of loud arenas: Dukes Cameron Indoor Stadium, Allen Fieldhouse in Kansas, Syracuses Carrier Dome, The Pit in New Mexico.None have the rave-like feel of GCU Arena when the Havocs are in full effect.In the early days, the Havocs had an intro song for running down the steps to fill their seats. Choreographed dances were added over the years, some created by Havoc leaders, others organically in the do-what-hes-doing fashion.The Havocs prepare for the show with a pregame party on the lawn outside GCU Arena, then gather behind a fence. The GCU band plays and the cheerleaders cheer to keep the Havocs entertained, then theyre released like a horse race that starts slow and turns into a sprint despite ushers shouting no running!Once in their seats, the Havocs are in full party mode, dancing to whatever song comes from the turned-up-a-couple-extra-notches loudspeakers.The choreography starts with the Purple Pre Game Party, when the students wave their arms above their heads like 2,000 rubber-antlered antelopes -- the team mascot -- to Vengaboys We Like to Party!The hype builds with the spring-loaded Turbulence and the intimidation factor ratchets up for opposing team introductions, when the Havocs bounce and point at the players to Springen by MAKJ.Another opportunity to get their groove on -- as if they need one -- comes at the under-12-minute media timeout, when a remix version of DHTs Listen to Your Heart blares across the arena and turns on the popcorn maker again.Theres not too many places like this in the country, Grand Canyon senior guard DeWayne Russell said. Every game, no matter who we play, they bring the energy. It pumps us up so much; we know every game theyre going to be rockin it.---More AP college basketball at and Charles Harris Womens Jersey . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason.

Want a Queensland jersey?Earn it.That was the blunt message from Maroons captain Cameron Smith after criticism an ageing Queensland missed a chance to blood youngsters in next weeks State of Origin dead rubber in Sydney.There were calls that the Maroons should have looked to the future and injected new faces into their 17 for July 13s Origin III after Queensland sealed their 10th series win in 11 years.Instead Queensland made two injury enforced changes to their Origin III team, adding veteran forwards Nate Myles and Gavin Cooper.It ensures the Maroons will boast nine players 30 years or older in their team - not exactly a glimpse into Queenslands future.But Smith, 33, agreed with the changes, saying Queensland jerseys were earned - not simply given away.He cited Cooper as an example after the 30 year old North Queensland backrower finally earned an Origin debut in his 11th NRL season.Veteran prop Myles, 31, returns to the team after missing game two with a knee injury.Origin jerseys shouldnt just be handed out to anyone, not just given away, SSmith said.

Gavin Cooper has been playing some good footy for a long time now.He was a big reason why they won that premiership.He deserves his opportunity.I dont really believe in succession plans or thinking because we have wrapped up the series lets give a young bloke an opportunity.If he is forcing his way into the team that is when he is ready to be here.Retiring Queensland lock Corey Parker agreed with his captain as he prepared to play his 19th and final Origin on Wednesday week.Parker is another good example of earning your Origin spurs.He played three games from 2004-05 then had to wait six years for his next Origin.The 34-year-old is now an integral part of the Maroons pack.Why would we be blooding youngsters? Parker told AAP.We got the job done in the first two games.Queensland picks a team to do a job.You dont pick teams to just blood them.You pick them because they are the best to do the job.
