    Palo Alto, CA (SportsNetwork. James Conner Womens Jersey .com) - The Stanford Cardinal will face their third Top-25 opponent of the season, as they play host to the 21st-ranked Washington Huskies in a Pac-12 matchup at Maples Pavilion on Sunday night. Johnny Dawkins Cardinal have split their two games against ranked foes this season, losing to Duke (70-59) in late November and then edging out Texas (74-71 OT) just before Christmas. The win over the Longhorns began the teams current three-game win streak, which includes opening up Pac-12 play on Friday with a 71-56 win over Washington State. Lorenzo Romars Huskies began the season with 11 straight victories to earn their way into the Top-25. That may not be for too much longer though, as Washington has dropped back-to-back games. It started with a shocking 62-57 loss to Stony Brook and carried into Pac-12 play with Fridays 81-75 loss at California. Stanford holds a narrow 71-69 lead in the all-time series with Washington, with the Huskies closing the gap with wins in eight of the last 10 meetings, including the last one, a 64-60 decision last February. The Huskies simply couldnt contain Cals Jordan Mathews, who erupted for 31 points in leading the Golden Bears to victory at home on Friday. Washington also had a tough time with Cals David Kravish, who finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds in knocking off UW. The setback spoiled a terrific performance by Nigel Williams-Goss, who had a near triple-double with 19 points, eight rebounds and nine assists. Three other Huskies joined Williams-Goss in scoring double digits, with Robert Upshaw putting up 16 points off the bench, followed by Jernard Jarreau and Andrew Andrews, with 12 and 10 points, respectively. Williams-Goss is the key to Washingtons success this season. The sophomore guard is picking up right where he left off last year (All-Pac 12 freshman selection), as he is both a potent scorer and deft distributor, leading the team in both categories with 14.0 points and 6.8 assists per outing. Andrews (11.8 ppg) and Upshaw (11.2 ppg) are also sporting double-figure scoring totals, with Upshaw leading the team in rebounding (7.5 rpg). Shawn Kemp Jr. (9.8 ppg) is eager to join the group. The Cardinal possess a veteran nucleus, as the starting lineup features three seniors and two juniors. One of those seniors is star guard Chasson Randle, who is among the Pac-12s most explosive scorers at a hefty 18.4 ppg. Fifth- year seniors Stefan Nastic and Anthony Brown provide stability up front. The 6-11 Nastic is converting 50 percent of his shots and is averaging 14.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. Brown, a 6-6 swingman, nets 13.9 ppg and is tops on the team in rebounding with 7.1 rpg. Stanford took a three-point lead into halftime (27-24) and distanced itself from Washington State by shooting a scorching .640 from the floor over the final 20 minutes to earn a 15-point victory in its Pac-12 opener. Randle poured in a game-high 18 points. Nastic added 16 to the cause, while Brown recorded a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Rosco Allen completed the top scoring threats for Stanford, with 10 points off the bench. Cameron Sutton Womens Jersey . Catch the game on TSN starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. Tampa Bay currently holds the last of the Atlantics three automatic bids to the playoffs, but the Maple Leafs are just one point behind. Cameron Sutton Youth Jersey . Portland won Game 4 Sunday night at the Moda Center and are now up 3-1. The last time the Blazers won a playoff series came in the 2000 Western Conference semifinals against the Utah Jazz. ATLANTA -- The Cincinnati Reds placed catcher Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a strained left hamstring, and injured closer Aroldis Chapman made a "big step" in his recovery from facial fractures. Mesoraco hurt his hamstring while scoring from second in Friday nights 5-4 loss at Atlanta. Chapman was hit by a line drive during an exhibition game on March 19, breaking his nose and a bone above his left eye. The left-hander looked strong while throwing 43 pitches in batting practice before Saturday nights game against the Braves. The session was divided into two "innings," separated by a five-minute break. It was Chapmans second time throwing batting practice and his first without a protective screen in front of the mound. He is scheduled to throw another simulated game on Tuesday in Cincinnati before beginning a rehab stint in the minors. "I think it was a big step today to throw without a protective screen for the first time since the incident happened," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "I thought it was a big step, and if one more outing makes him feel physically and mentally more prepared to face hitters in a game situation, thats great." Chapman said he is still regaining the stamina he needs to feel ready for games. "I think everything weent well," Chapman said through a translator. T. J. Watt Jersey. "I dont feel physically the same way I was feeling in spring training but I believe with a little work I will be in the physical shape that I want to be." Chapman said he wasnt worried about throwing without the protective screen normally used in batting practice. "Actually, Im really positive," he said. "Since everything that happened to me, Ive been really positive. I didnt have a bad thought that this could happen again, that I could have any trauma to my head again." Price said he does not think Chapman will need a long stay in the minors. "I hate to put a number on it because that would be reckless, but after we send him out I dont think it will be much more than a week," Price said. Right-hander Jonathan Broxton has four saves as the fill-in closer. Third baseman Todd Frazier was held out of the lineup after leaving Friday nights game with tightness in his left leg. Price said Frazier probably could have started if needed. The Reds recalled catcher Tucker Barnhart from Triple-A Louisville to play behind Brayan Pena. Neftali Soto is making his first career start at third base against the Braves. Barnhart, Soto and Ramon Santiago took turns in the batters box against Chapman. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
