SOUTH BEND, Ind. Air Max 95 Mens Trainers . -- Notre Dames Big Three got the season started Saturday in a convincing way.Bonzie Colson had 23 points and nine rebounds, V.J. Beachem tied his career-high with 22 points, and fellow tri-captain Steve Vasturia added 16 to power Notre Dame to an 89-64 victory over Bryant.The Irish used an 18-2 second half run, capped by Rex Pfluegers 3-point play, to turn a single-digit lead into a 22-point advantage in a span of five minutes.The `Big Three led the way, said Notre Dame coach Mike Brey. That was good because it was a hard game.Notre Dame, which is coming off back-to-back Elite Eight runs in the NCAA Tournament, was just 3 of 16 from beyond the arc but hit 26 of 29 (89.7 percent) free-throw attempts.I love what we did from the foul line, Brey said. I think we can be right up there nationally.Nisre Zouzoua led Bryant with 19 points. Freshmen Sebastian Townes chipped in 16 points and Adam Grant had 13 before fouling out. The Bulldogs turned it over 13 times and shot 41 percent from the field.We were able to hold ourselves very competitively for a good portion of the game, said Bryant coach Tim OShea. It got away from us a little bit, but it was more of a function of how good Notre Dame is. We made some mistakes, but we werent overwhelmed.Known as a shoot-first 3-point threat, Beachem was a perfect 7 of 7 from the foul line, a result of his improved ability to drive to the basket rather than settle for jump shots.That was something I was focused on in the offseason, putting the ball on the deck, Beachem said. That was something I was hearing feedback on after the (NBA) draft process, so its something that I have to make a concerted effort to do rather than just spot up and shoot 3s.Colson scored on a variety of moves down low, but also stepped out and knocked down a 3-pointer, showcasing his offensive versatility.Hes an amazing guy, with a nose for the ball, Brey said. He sets the tone for us.FIRST HALF RUNSBryant missed its first nine shots and didnt score until nearly five minutes had passed while falling behind 9-0. But Grants consecutive 3-pointers sparked a 15-2 Bulldogs run that put them ahead 19-15 with nine minutes left in the first half.Beachem responded with seven straight points to start an 11-2 Irish run, and Notre Dame scored the final seven points of the half to build a 12-point lead.Its huge to have a guy like VJ who can stretch it and drive it, Colson said. We knew we would have to fight some adversity, but we just stayed together as a unit and stayed within ourselves.BIG PICTUREBryant: The Bulldogs, a Division I program since 2012, will play just four home games in the first two months of the season, while breaking in a six-man freshman class.Notre Dame: Debuting two new starters who played very little last year, Notre Dame improved to 17-0 under Mike Brey in season openers. Point guard Matt Farrell led the Irish with six assists in 28 minutes, while forward Martinas Geben had four points and seven rebounds.TIP-INSBryant: Senior forward Dan Garvin had seven points against the Irish as a freshman the last time the Bulldogs faced them in a narrow 11-point loss at ND in 2013. Garvin finished with four points and a team-high 12 rebounds Saturday.Notre Dame: After leaving Notre Dames second exhibition game last Monday due to shortness of breath, senior forward Austin Torres retuned to play eight minutes and threw down an emphatic two-handed dunk in the second half.UP NEXTBryant opens its home slate with Salve Regina on Tuesday.Notre Dame plays another early-season home tuneup against Seattle University on Wednesday Air Max 2017 For Sale . Reassurance came from Paul Tesori, his caddie and close friend whose newborn son is in intensive care in a Florida hospital. "Paul sent me a text this morning, just told me he loved me and wanted to go out and fight as hard as I would any other day," Simpson said Sunday after doing just that. Air Max 2017 Mens Black Gold . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. http://www.thebidcorp.com/nike-roshe-two-casual-shoes.html . It is a clich√© dragged out by fans and pundits regularly when discussions take place around which teams are better than others. DETROIT -- The Edmonton Oilers will be a big test for the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday at Joe Louis Arena.Edmonton (8-3-1) snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-3 shootout win against the New York Islanders in Brooklyn on Saturday night. The Oilers rallied from a 2-0 deficit.Detroit (6-5-1) has lost four straight (0-3-1) after a 5-3 setback to the Winnipeg Jets at Joe Louis Arena on Friday night.The Red Wings main issue has been the lack of attention to detail, which has led to them allowing 14 goals in the past three games.We try to focus on attention to detail in practice, doing everything right every day, and we got to continue to make sure we do a great job with it, Detroit coach Jeff Blashill told www.mlive.com on Saturday. If you dont have attention every day in life youre not going to have attention to detail in every game. Our attention to detail has to be perfect. If its perfect, were a really good hockey team.Said goaltender Jimmy Howard: I think its self-inflicted. Were playing good hockey and then we just have some mental breaks and its costing us right now.Blashill said his team surrendered nine scoring chances to Winnipeg on Friday, with six or seven being Grade A opportunities. He called those numbers unacceptable.We had as many (chances) as we gave up (Friday), he said. We just got to make sure when we do give up them up theyre earned and were not shooting ourselves in the ffoot. Puma Rihanna Bow Green. Those kind of breakdowns could be even more costly against Edmonton, which is led by second-year star forward Connor McDavid, the top pick in the 2015 NHL Draft who has five goals and 13 points in 12 games.Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser will likely be matched up against McDavids line.Hes got tremendous speed and hes super explosive, DeKeyser said of McDavid. Youve just got to be aware of where he is on the ice, and he thinks the game really well. Other guys that dont have the puck, youve got to have your man because hell find open teammates.Theres a good chance the Oilers will be without forwards Jesse Puljujarvi (charley horse) and Zack Kassian (lower body), who both left Saturday nights game in the first period and did not return. Edmonton coach Todd McLellan said each is doubtful for Sunday.To stick with it, short bench like we had, said the Oilers Mark Letestu, who scored the only goal of the shootout Saturday night. Basically rolling three lines and mixing a guy in, to get it to overtime and give ourselves a chance to get that second point, it was a gutsy effort.Patrick Maroon, Leon Draisaitl and Milan Lucic scored in regulation for the Oilers.Howard will start in goal for Detroit. Cam Talbot made 30 saves for Edmonton against the Islanders.
