Florida won back-to-back national titles a decade ago, and since that time no defending champion has even made it to the Elite Eight, much less the Final Four. Can Villanova break that streak and cut down the nets in 2017? Absolutely.Of course, the most likely outcome next April is that one of the 350 other teams in Division I will win it all. Nevertheless, its unusual to see a reigning champion this well-positioned to defend its title. Josh Hart, Kris Jenkins, Mikal Bridges, Jalen Brunson, Phil Booth and Darryl Reynolds are all still in uniform, and that gives coach Jay Wright what he needs to make a real run at a second consecutive championship.Just how rare is Villanovas favorable -- though far from dominant -- situation? Anthony Santander Jersey .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. Zach Britton Jersey . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was not a head injury. http://www.theoriolesteamshop.com/Orioles-Andrew-Cashner-Kids-Jersey/ . Now that hes hitting streaking teammates with pin-point passes for easy layups, Love is asserting himself as one of the true superstars in the league. Frank Robinson Jersey . -- Ken Appleby made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-0 win over the Belleville Bulls on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action. Jeremy Hellickson Jersey . Defenceman Yannick Weber scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Canucks breathed a sigh of relief with a 2-1 win on Saturday night. GLENDALE, Ariz. -- As has been repeated many times by now, the Arizona Cardinals still have every player on offense who gained a yard or scored a point for the prolific team last season.So the first units showing in preseason games doesnt seem to mean much to them.Coach Bruce Arians said he expects quarterback Carson Palmer to play less than a half when the Cardinals play at Houston on Sunday night. How much the rest of the starters play will depend on how they perform, but dont expect it to be more than a half.I honestly dont think about the game, Palmer said before practice Wednesday. Im focused on the practices and the walk-throughs and the meetings. Youre never going to show your hand in the preseason.Palmer returns from the best season hes had in his 14 years in the NFL. He set franchise records in yards passing (4,671), touchdown passes (35) and passer rating (104.6) while leading the team to a 13-3 record. But the season ended badly when he and just about everyone else on the team played poorly in a blowout loss to Carolina in the NFC championship game, a performance that has served as motivation.The Cardinals expect this years offense to be even better. Larry Fitzgerald, whose 109 catches last season broke the franchise record he set a decade earlier, listed some of the reasons.Out of the gate (running back) David (Johnson) is going to be starting for us, he said. He came on strong for us later in the season. If David would have started (all season) theres no telling, he might have had 20 touchdowns (he had 13) last year. Hes just that talented. Our tight end group has gotten much better. Our receivers group is pretty much the same and guys in that group are getting better. ... Weve got guys that can play.Injuries have depleted that deep receiving corps in training camp. John Brown has been out with a concussion, J.J. Nelson has been slowed by a groin injury and Fitzgerald missed last Fridays loss at San Diego with a sore knee. Fitzgerald practiced Sunday but took Monday and Wednesday off.That opened the way for Jaron Brown, who Arians described at one point as the best receiver we have.The Carrdinals have depth at the skill positions: Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington at running back, Nelson and Jaron Brown behind starters Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and John Brown at wide receiver and Darren Fells, Jermaine Gresham and Troy Niklas at tight end.ddddddddddddThe 6-foot-6, 270-pound Niklas, a second-round draft pick out of Notre Dame in 2014, has had a big camp and is pushing for a starting job.The first unit drove the length of the field before settling for a field goal in its only series in the preseason opener against Oakland and failed to score in three series at San Diego. Palmer had an interception returned for a touchdown against the Chargers.But he is not concerned.Weve had 15 reps in preseason games, Palmer said. Weve had thousands of reps thus far in training camp. Weve had tens of thousands of reps together as a unit. Theres enough data looking back at all the plays -- last years team and so far this training camp. Thats where you get your confidence and you see what youre made of, looking at so many reps that weve put together as a group, not three series as an offense in preseason games.Arizona, one of the top scoring teams in the league all season, has been outscored 50-13 in its two preseason losses.Again, the players say thats no big deal.The older you get, I hate to say, that preseason is drudgery, Fitzgerald said. Obviously you have to go out there and play but it doesnt mean anything in the standings. The Detroit Lions, when they went 0-16, they were 4-0 in preseason.Of course, the Cardinals would like to have a good showing against the Texans. Theyre even preparing a bit of a game plan, mostly for the exercise of doing it, Palmer said.The pride in our group and our guys is we want to play well, Palmer said, but the focus is more around here each day and handling that day and that task at hand.Most importantly, Arians, Palmer and Fitzgerald all emphasized, come out of the game healthy.---AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Jerseys NFL China NFL Jerseys Outlet China NFL Hoodies China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys China NFL T-shirts From China Cheap Authentic Jerseys NFL Jerseys Outlet Cheap Authentic Jerseys Camo China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Womens Jerseys ' ' '
