SYRACUSE, N. Plumas Moncler Mujer Outlet .Y. -- Trevor Cooney has hit shooting touch back -- just in the nick of time for top-ranked Syracuse. Cooney scored a career-high 33 points, matching a school record with nine 3-pointers, and the Orange beat Notre Dame 61-55 on Monday night in another matchup of former Big East foes. After struggling to a woeful 25.4 per cent (14 of 55) from behind the arc in his first seven Atlantic Coast Conference games, Cooney has hit 11 of 13 in the past two games and was the difference against the Irish as the Oranges front line faltered. "It feels good," Cooney said. "I kind of got going and guys just found me in good spots." Syracuse (22-0, 9-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), which moved to No. 1 this week after its scintillating 91-89 overtime victory over Duke on Saturday night and Arizonas loss to California, extended its school record for most consecutive wins to start a season. Notre Dame (12-11, 3-7) has lost seven of nine. Two days after one of the most emotional wins in Jim Boeheims 38 years as head coach, Syracuse played its first game as the nations top team since the 2011-12 season. Two years ago, the Orange were unbeaten and ranked No. 1 when they went to South Bend, and Notre Dame upset them 67-58. It was the eighth time Notre Dame had beaten a No. 1 team and turned out to be Syracuses lone loss of the regular season. "That was in the back of my mind," said C.J. Fair, who had a season-low six points on 2-of-13 shooting after scoring a career-high 28 against Duke. "I didnt want that to happen again." Cooney made sure there was no repeat, hitting five 3-pointers in the first half as the Orange gained a 13-point halftime advantage, then barely held the Irish at bay in the second half. "We put ourselves in position to make it interesting," Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said. "We came into this game, and especially if you watch what they did to Duke, beating them up in the paint. You really try to take stuff away in the paint. I thought overall with the guys that destroy you in the paint we did a good job. But we couldnt do a good job on Cooney. Seven of the nine I think we challenged. He was just in one of those zones, and youve got to take your hat off." Cooney, 9 of 12 from long range, matched the record set by Gerry McNamara in the 2004 NCAA tournament and equaled by Andy Rautins in 2008 and James Southerland in 2012. Jerami Grant and Fair, who combined for 54 points against Duke, combined for just 15, while Tyler Ennis found little room in the lane to penetrate and finished with six points and eight assists. Garrick Sherman led Notre Dame with 16 points, Steve Vasturia had 13, and Pat Connaughton 11, while Eric Atkins had nine on 3-of-10 shooting. Notre Dame closed within 38-32 on a 3-pointer from Atkins with 14:19 to play, but Syracuse responded with seven straight points. Grant slammed home a dunk after his block on Sherman and Fair followed with a slam off a Grant miss. Cooney completed the run with his seventh 3-pointer, which tied his personal best. The Irish have four long-range threats in Atkins, Connaughton, Vasturia, and Demetrius Jackson, who had combined for 127 3-pointers on the season entering the game, and Notre Dames long-range attack came alive in the second half after going 1 of 6 in the first 20 minutes. Two 3-pointers by Atkins, Vasturias three-point play and a slam dunk by Tom Knight moved the Irish back within 43-40 with 8:41 to go. Grant responded with a spinning drive through the lane and Cooney hit another 3. Grant then fed Cooney for a reverse layup and three-point play and Cooney hit his ninth 3 for a 54-44 lead with 4:14 to play. Notre Dame refused to wilt, pulling back to 54-49 on Connaughtons three-point play at 2:52. "Thats who this group is," Brey said. "We havent been able to get over the hump and win enough. Weve been down on the road just about every time, and we come back and give ourselves a chance. I love that about us. If we keep doing that enough, I think well get a couple of them." Grants layup off a feed from Ennis and two free throws by Ennis boosted the lead back to eight, and the Orange made it interesting when Ennis and Fair each missed the front end of 1-and-1s in the final minute. Atkins missed a floater and Connaughton was off on a 3-point attack in the final seconds. "I had a look and missed, which would have been a really big shot for us," Atkins said. "That was a huge play. But they played great. They made plays when they were needed." Cazadoras Moncler . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. Moncler España . - 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.http://www.moncleronlinestore.es/abrigos-moncler-mujer-outlet.html .ca!

Hell take the offences surge that came an inning later, though. Justin Upton and Dan Uggla each homered in a three-run sixth inning, and the Braves rallied past the Nationals for a 5-2 victory, lowering their magic number for clinching the NL East title to two games. "We struggled early, but it was bound to happen," Upton said. "Weve been struggling for a while here. At some point, we had to break out." Brian McCann and Jordan Schafer also drove in runs as the Braves snapped a three-game skid. Atlanta has not won the division since 2005, the last of 11 straight titles. Washington entered 4 1/2 games behind Cincinnati for the second NL wild card. "Thats just not enough," Nationals manager Davey Johnson said of taking the series two games to one. "We just cant afford to lose." Washington revealed after the game that Stephen Strasburg is being pushed back for the second time because of forearm tightness. He was scheduled to start Thursday but could not get loose Wednesday. Hes now scheduled to start Saturday. "I dont really know why its happening," said Strasburg, who will be replaced by Gio Gonzalez in the rotation. "When it happens, it happens. Its like a strong cramp. So, I just think it would put us in a bind if I went out there and felt it." Kameron Loe (1-2) got one out for the win. Craig Kimbrel, Atlantas seventh pitcher, rebounded from his loss Tuesday to record his 48th save. As he was being replaced after giving up two runs in the fifth inning, Wood was ejected for shouting and pointing at home plate umpire CB Bucknor. The rookie was upset with Bucknors ball-four call with the bases loaded earlier in the inning. "It was just one of those things where I let my emotions get the best of me there," Wood said. "In the latter part of that inning it was a big situation. I kind of felt it could have gone the other way and I did some things, said some things I probably shouldnt have said. (I) Immediately regretted it after I got inside." The inning began when Anthony Rendon singled and Washington pitcher Ross Ohlendorf bunted him to second. Span then hit a bouncer to first that Freddie Freeman bobbled for an error, putting runners on first and third. After Ryan Zimmerman walked to load the bases, Jayson Werth walked on a close 3-2 pitch to force in the games first run. Wood slammed hiss pitching hand into his glove as he came down off the mound and began yelling at Bucknor. Abrigos Moncler Niños. Third baseman Chris Johnson attempted to calm Wood, while Fredi Gonzalez came out to argue and was ejected by Bucknor. "I thought I made a pitch and I didnt. I reacted probably the opposite of the way I should of," Wood said. Asked what he thought of the pitch after seeing the replay in the clubhouse, Wood said, "He called it a ball. Its a ball." When play resumed, Bryce Harper hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Span. Atlanta bench coach Carlos Tosca came out to remove Wood, who shouted and pointed at Bucknor on his way to the dugout. "You dont do that kind of stuff on the mound. But he was fired up," Gonzalez said. "Thats something you learn from, and control your emotions. So, well chalk it up as a young starter in an emotional game that we wanted to win, and he got himself a little excited." Washingtons Denard Span extended his hitting streak to 29 straight, the longest in the majors this season. Ohlendorf (4-1) allowed three runs over six innings. The right-hander, making his second start in place of Strasburg, retired 10 straight to start the game. But with Atlanta trailing 2-0 in the sixth, Uggla led off with his 22nd homer. "I mean you can never tell," Uggla said of Woods outburst. "Things like that, sometimes they can spark something, sometimes the other pitcher just bears down." Schafer then bunted and went all the way to third when Ohlendorfs throw to first sailed down the right field line. Ohlendorf got two outs, but Upton hit the first pitch he saw over the wall in left-centre to put Atlanta ahead 3-2. It was Uptons 23rd home run. NOTES: Atlanta won the season series, 13-6. ... Atlanta OF Jason Heyward (fractured jaw) took simulated at-bats Wednesday, saying it went well. "Its something to be excited about, but Ive got work to do and Im not going to be satisfied until Im back," he said. ... SS Andrelton Simmons didnt start after playing through neck tightness in Tuesdays doubleheader. Gonzalez said the decision was precautionary, and Simmons entered the game in the seventh. ... Washington LHP Ross Detwiler (back strain), on the DL since July 7, threw a bullpen session Wednesday. Hell throw another this week and then travel to Viera, Fla., to pitch in the Instructional League Monday. Johnson said given the number of games left, its unlikely Detwiler will pitch for Washington again this season. ...
