RALEIGH, N.C. -- George Washington kept hanging around, refusing to let Memphis pull too far ahead. The Colonials just couldnt come up with the one shot they needed to prolong their first NCAA tournament visit in seven years. Isaiah Armwood scored a season-high 21 points in ninth-seeded GWs 71-66 loss to eighth-seeded Memphis in the second round of the East Regional. Armwood picked up his fourth foul with 12:02 remaining for GW (24-9), which was just 2 of 12 from 3-point range yet never fell behind by more than 10 points. "It definitely changed my defence, because when Im on defence, Im usually active. I couldnt foul," Armwood said. "It definitely hurt us because I gave up some layups that I dont usually give up." Leading scorer Maurice Creek -- who averages 14 points -- finished with nine on 2-of-13 shooting for GW, but he airballed a 3-pointer in the final seconds that would have tied it. Michael Dixon Jr., the top sixth man in the American Athletic Conference, scored 19 points and hit four free throws in the final 10 seconds for Memphis, which never trailed. Joe Jackson added 15 points for the eighth-seeded Tigers (24-9), who are halfway to Geron Johnsons post-AAC tournament guarantee of two wins in the first weekend of the NCAAs. "As long as we think big and we play hard, the skys the limit," Jackson said. "Weve just got to continue to think that we can get there. Weve got to know we can get there." They entered the tournament having lost three of five to fall out of the national rankings, and shot 49 per cent in this one but struggled to put GW away until the final seconds. Patricio Garino added 10 points for the Colonials, who were making their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2007 and hung around all game before making a final late push. They had the ball down 67-64 after Jackson threw the ball away with 1:16 left. But Creeks jumper in the lane was short and so was Nemanja Mikics 3-point attempt from the right wing with less than a minute remaining. "I think if we would have tied it, the momentum was sort of shifting and maybe we would have tied it, had some time outs and things wouldve been different," GW coach Mike Lonergan said. Crawford missed a 3 for Memphis with about 30 seconds left and the rebound went out of bounds off Jackson with 26.6 seconds left. Joe McDonald beat Crawford off the dribble for a layup to make it 67-66 with 13.6 seconds left, and the Colonials fouled Dixon with 9.6 seconds left. Dixon hit both free throws and the Colonials called a timeout to set up their final possession. McDonald dribbled a few seconds off the clock before passing to Creek, whose final 3-pointer with about 3 seconds left left failed to draw iron. "A shot I usually hit," said Creek, a 41 per cent shooter from 3-point range. Dixon added two more free throws with 0.4 of a second remaining for Memphis, which could never push its lead past 10. Its last big lead came on Dixons jumper from the corner with 9 1/2 minutes left. Creek hit a 3-pointer -- GWs second, and last, of the game -- before GWs 1-3-1 zone forced a turnover and Garino made a layup to make it a 64-62 game with 2 1/2 minutes left. Out of a timeout, Memphis worked the ball to Dixon -- who buried an open 3-pointer from the right wing and kept his shooting hand aloft for an extra moment. At the time, that seemed like the dagger -- but the Colonials kept scrapping. "They made a run at the end," Dixon said, "but we never got flustered or rattled." Both teams werent especially good behind either line on the court: Memphis was 11 of 16 from the free throw line and hit just 27 per cent of its 3-point attempts, while GW was 14 of 24 from the free throw line in addition to its poor 3-point shooting. "Theyve got a good inside-out punch," Jackson said. "Fortunately, we kind of stopped them from shooting 3s because it probably would have been a long night for us." Allen Iverson USA Jersey .

As the Winnipeg Blue Bombers opened their main training camp Sunday, Kuale is one of the newcomers brought in to bolster a sagging defence that ranked overall where the Bombers finished 2013, in the CFL cellar with a league high 585 points against.Mark Butcher believes Shane Watson played one of his finest innings as his unbeaten half century propelled Australia past Pakistan and into the World Cup semi-finals. Watson (64no from 66 balls) guided Australia to a six-wicket victory in Adelaide after entering the crease with his team teetering on 59-3 in pursuit of 214.The 33-year-old, who was dropped for the match with Afghanistan earlier in the tournament, held firm while the effervescent Wahab Riaz (2-54) came hurtling in. To get your team over the line is the aim of any cricketer and to have done it having weathered a pace storm from the unbelievably fired-up Wahab will make it extra special.” Mark Butcher And former England batsmen Butcher told Sky Sports that Watson will be delighted with his knock, one that secured a Sydney showdown with India on Thursday, March 26.“That innings from Watson will give him more pleasure than any 80 or hundred he would have made in easier circumstances,” said Butcher, who played 71 Tests for England but no one-day internationals.“To get your team over the line is the aim of any cricketer and to have done it having weathered a pace storm from the unbelievably fired-up Wahab will make it extra special.”CaptivatedWatson, whose half century was his 33rd in ODI cricket, was on the backfoot early in his innings with left-armer Wahab peppering him with a hostile spell of seam. Wahab Riaz says being unable to call upon the injured Mohammad Irfan was a big blow for Pakistan as they lost to Australia in the World Cup quarter-finals. “I was captivated by the battle, as everybody else was, and it was almost a mini episode of Test cricket in a one-day game,” said Michael Atherton after commentating on the match.dddddddddddd“It has happened a lot in this tournament, though, as with batsmen dominating, captains have realised they need their fast bowlers bowling aggressively to try and prevent an onslaught from batters later on.”Watson, however, was given a costly reprieve by Rahat Ali when on four, the Pakistan quick shelling a routine catch at fine leg off the bowling of Wahab.But former Australia all-rounder Marcus North says that slip-up was just one of a number of differences between the sides. Watch this huge error from Rahat Ali which could prove costly for Pakistan in their quarter-final clash with Australia. “It was a very tense, close contest in the end but as a package Australia are better than Pakistan,” said North, after watching Michael Clarke’s men skittle their opponents for 213 and then chalk off their target in 33.5 overs, thanks also to scores from Steve Smith (65) and Glenn Maxwell (44no).“They just have more match winners, either with amazing hitters or in the bowling, while Pakistan have also been unable to master the fielding aspect of the game.”Highlights of Australias win over Pakistan will be available on Sky Sports World Cup at 1pm, 4pm, 7pm and 10pm with The Verdict, featuring VVS Laxman and Jacques Kallis, following each show.Highlights of the match are also available in Hindi over on Zee Cinema (channel 790).
