only sees two of its next 10 games on home

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA guard Jordin Canada was so focused on grabbing the one rebound she needed for her first career triple double that when teammate Monique Billings flung away the rebounded basketball they both held, Canada glared at her. Wholesale Hornets Jerseys . Players and coaches on the UCLA bench all knew what was at stake and collectively groaned in disbelief.Everyone finished with smiles because Canada grabbed her 10th rebound with 48 seconds left.Canada had 11 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists to lead No. 9 UCLA to a 95-47 win over Southern University on Friday night.Its the sixth triple-double in school history, and Canada also crossed the 1,000-point mark, a milestone she didnt realized she reached until after the game.Its also an honor. Its a great feeling to know that Ive put in the work, Canada said. Im very proud of myself, but its not all about points. Yes, its a great honor, but its not everything.Billings had a double-double with 22 points and 15 rebounds, her fifth consecutive one dating back to last season. She also set a career-high with six steals.But she drew the ire of her point guard.We have goals that we have to meet. Mo was one rebound away from getting 15 rebounds, which was her goal, Canada said. I was one rebound away from getting a triple double. At the time, I thought she already met her goal. When the ball went up we both had it, and I was screaming because I wanted it. She took it away. I was mad. I didnt realize she hadnt met her goal until afterward, so I felt bad. Were just really passionate about getting our goals.UCLA had just nine players available. Four players are injured and have yet to play this season.Canada prides herself on passing, defending and, when a milestone is on the line, rebounding.Ive never seen Jordan so mad at me running down the court, Billings said with a laugh. She got her rebound too, after so its all good.Skylar OBear scored 14 points and Briana Green added 12 for Southern (1-2).Kennedy Burke led the Bruins in scoring with 23 points, including a career-high five 3-pointers. UCLA had a school-record 14 3-pointers as a team, breaking the mark of 12 set against Hawaii in 2009.BIG PICTURE:Southern got the experience of playing one of the best teams in the country on the road and will have plenty of learning opportunities in a postgame film session.UCLA has its sights set on a national championship and with a loss to No. 2 Baylor on the road four days ago, it showed the Bruins theres work to be done. UCLA dominated at home on Friday, where it plays so well, but hasnt won a road game against a ranked opponent in its last 13 consecutive games.UP NEXT:Southern University returns home to play Bethune-Cookman on Thursday but its a one-game stint in New Orleans as the Jaguars play six of their first eight games on the road.UCLA hosts Cal Poly on Sunday before traveling to Mexico for the Cancun Challenge, which starts on Thanksgiving.POLL IMPLICATIONS After the loss at No. 2 Baylor on Monday, which came after the polls were released earlier in the day, UCLA likely will fall out of the top 10. The Bruins played Southern on Friday, which has just one win, and will play Cal Poly, which lost its first two games of the season, on Sunday, so wins against those teams likely wouldnt help keep UCLA in the top 10.QUOTABLEI think were still not playing anywhere close to what were going to become. Thats a good news-bad news. Its bad news because we missed an opportunity at Baylor. The good news is that theres no danger this group is going to peak early. We have so many things we still need to work on. On the other hand, were shooting the ball great. Were a selfless team.-- UCLA coach Cori Close on ways to improve after a 48-point win Cheap Hornets Jerseys .

EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Ottawa Senators are going up against one of the NHLs most potent offences on Sunday with heavy hearts and a goaltending crisis.As the Senators (4-3-0) prepare for Sundays game against the host Edmonton Oilers (7-1-0), they are coping with the news that No. 1 goalie Craig Andersons wife, Nicholle, has been diagnosed with cancer. Anderson had been on leave to look after what the team had called a personal matter, but the Senators went public with the diagnosis Saturday -- and revealed that their top netminder will hurry back to be with the team.Why does Anderson need to come back? Back-up Andrew Hammond suffered a lower-body injury in Fridays 5-2 loss to Calgary. Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said Saturday that Hammond will be placed on injured reserve and will miss at least a week of action.As soon as Hammond left the game, Dorion got a phone call from Anderson.Nicole told Craig to phone me, which he did, during the game, Dorion said Saturday. We talked to Craig after the game. And, it was determined that because they were in a wait period, and they were going to drive to Ottawa together as a family today, that it would be all right for Craig to come and rejoin his team.Hes going to embraced by his teammates and its only going to help us grow as a family and as a hockey family.Chris Driedger will remain with team, and Matt OConnor was called up Saturday from the Senators AHL affiliate in Binghamton, N.Y. Dorion said both will stay with the team because Anderson could need to leave at any time to be with his wife.OConnor has one previous NHL game on his resume. When Driedger came in to replace Hammond on Friday, it was jjust his third career NHL game. Cheap Swingman Hornets Jerseys. He gave up four goals on 15 shots.Not every games going to be a shutout so youve got to be prepared for the good ones and prepared for the bad ones and just move forward, said Driedger.Whoever plays Sunday will face an Oilers team that won five in a row and scored 29 times in just eight games.Add that to Edmonton No. 1 goalie Cam Talbot, who stopped 113 of the last 114 shots hes faced. His seven wins lead the NHL.Its probably one of the best stretches of my career right now, Talbot said. Im just trying to stay focused and stay confident, and go out there and give us a chance to win every night. My mindset is to go out there and make the saves Im supposed to make and hopefully make a few that Im not supposed to make.Talbot started every game for the Oilers so far this season. Jonas Gustavsson played part of the second period in Edmontons only loss this season, a loss to Buffalo back on Oct. 16.Edmonton coach Todd McLellan said he will continue to ride Talbot.We have to win games, and Gus is very capable of doing that, Im a firm believer. But, obviously, Cam is hot. Hell be our go-to guy tomorrow against Ottawa. As we head out on the road trip, itll become a little more taxing in terms of fatigue and wear and tear.The game against the Sens will finish a season-opening stretch which saw the Oilers play six of their first nine game on Rogers Place ice. After Sundays game, Edmonton will go on a five-game road trip and begin a stretch which only sees two of its next 10 games on home ice. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
