LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Deuces are wild as Kentucky antes up for a new basketball season.The Wildcats, ranked No. 2 in the preseason thanks in large part to the No. 2-rated freshman class, opens play Friday at Rupp Arena against Stephen F. Austin (7 p.m. ET, SEC Network).It is not so much the opponent that will make the opening night special, it is learning who the new stars will be as Kentucky brings aboard a freshman class that features four McDonalds All-Americans.Every one of these guys could try to get 30 points. Every one of them have that kind of ability, Wildcats coach John Calipari said. But they know they have to do it together.Calipari always calls it a process, the first three months of the season during which he determines style of play and rotations.This is November, the beginning of November, Calipari said. Its the first time these kids are doing some of this stuff, and theyre going to be uncomfortable and theyre going to be wrong 60, 70 percent of the time. Just play. Play hard, compete, battle. Come up with balls. Lets get some easy baskets. And then lets see how we execute.The process could be more challenging this year than others as Kentucky has legitimate options between using a smaller three-guard set and going tall with 6-foot-9 or better across the front line.With the small lineup, Kentucky features sophomore Isaiah Briscoe and freshmen DeAaron Fox and Malik Monk. All three are McDonalds All-Americans.Should the Wildcats go big, 6-9 Wenyen Gabriel and Derek Willis, 6-10 Edrice Bam Adebayo, Sacha Killeya-Jones and Tai Wynyard and 7-foot Isaac Humphries are all at Caliparis disposal.Regardless of the direction the coach chooses, Adebayo will be in the mix. The freshman arrived in Lexington sporting an NBA-ready, 260-pound frame.How about Bams energy? Was that crazy? Like, his motor? Calipari asked after a recent exhibition win. That motor is how you win ballgames. Hes a beast.The one person bridging the transition is Briscoe, the sophomore who pulled his name out of the NBA Draft last spring.In Isaiah, you really have a leader who is an alpha dog, Calipari said. Hes got a killer in him. You win with guys like him.It all begins Friday against Stephen F. Austin.The Lumberjacks have been the toast of the mid-majors of late, having reached the NCAA Tournament three straight years while posting a 53-1 record in the Southland Conference. However, the departure of five seniors and head coach Brad Underwood, who took the Oklahoma State job, leaves SFA scrambling under new coach Kyle Keller.Unfortunately, I only have, like, 17 percent of the offense back, Keller said, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. So were flipping this thing for the first time in a long time. Its a brand new team, but expectations are even higher.Im doing what Coach Calipari is doing.At least at the Southland Conference level.The biggest challenge might be in the paint. No SFA player is taller than 6-7.As for the Wildcats, Calipari promises a slimmed-down package of plays the first few weeks.Limited baseline, limited sideline, limited what well do versus zone, limited man offense, he said. Were just trying to get good at some things right now. I dont want to throw too much. I want them to worry about competing at a high level versus worrying about, What am I supposed to be doing out here? Just compete. Detlef Schrempf Jersey . Tests earlier this week revealed a Grade 2 left hamstring strain for Sabathia, who was hurt in last Fridays start against San Francisco. Its an injury that will require about eight weeks to heal. He finished a disappointing campaign just 14-13 with a career-worst 4. Supersonics Jerseys China . Denis Coderre, the former federal MP who was elected mayor on Nov. 3, has drawn the ire of some Montreal Canadiens. During last nights game he tweeted: "Hello? Can we get a one-way ticket to (minor-league) Hamilton for David Desharnais please. . After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times. Sam Perkins Jersey .

Brent Barry Jersey . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. Shes just about recovered from the Queensland Firebirds dramatic trans-Tasman netball championship grand final win, and now Clare McMeniman is casting one eye on the road to the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.McMeniman was an interested spectator at the opening of the Coomera Indoor Sports Centre on Friday, the venue for the 2018 netball competition at the Gold Coast games.The 31-year-old has never competed at a Commonwealth Games but is an integral part of coach Lisa Alexanders set-up in the build-up to the 2018 competition.McMeniman led the Diamonds during a three-Test series against England in January and will do so again for the upcoming Quad Series against England, South Africa and New Zealand starting on August 27 while captain Laura Geitz is rested.The defender is one of six Firebirds named in a preliminary 18-player squad for the Constellation Cup against the Silver Ferns in October.She says this years Tests are the start of the journey towards the 2018 Commonwealth Games.Its an elite squad of players, its a mix of exxciting fresh new talent and some old heads, experienced girls are in there as well, McMeniman told AAP.ddddddddddddThe next two years leading into this Commonwealth Games is going to be extremely exciting. Theres going to be emerging players that are coming through the system that will hopefully form a formidable Diamonds line-up.Really looking forward to the next chapter and what it holds for Australian netball.The thrill of leading her country again remains an honour and a privilege to McMeniman, but shes promising not to rock the boat too much until her Firebirds colleague Geitz returns to national colours for the October series with New Zealand.Were fairly similar in our leadership styles and the way we approach situations, she said.Its really not what I do, its just about how cohesively we work together as a group.The Diamonds are world-class athletes so it shouldnt be too hard a job Id imagine.
