gaining possession of the dro

    导出博客文章Newcomers dont take long to impact college basketball -- not in this world of
    one-and-dones and transfers. Over the next two weeks, we will look at the top
    five newcomers in each of the 10 biggest conferences. First up is the SEC.Many
    pointed to the new wave of coaches added to the SEC in recent years as an
    indication that the leagues postseason recession would finally be over. A better
    barometer is how those coaches are starting to get the players who can upgrade
    the conference.Just to be clear, Kentucky is exempt from the conversation. The
    Wildcats havent had a problem restocking their talent from year to year. But now
    the rest of the league is beginning to prove it can keep up. Its not a typo if
    you see Mississippi States recruiting class lounging among the nations elite
    programs.Heres a look at five newcomers who will surely have the SECs attention
    next season.Bam Adebayo, Kentucky Wildcats The Wildcats frontcourt was, in a
    word, unreliable last season. Although Skal Labissiere possessed a gifted
    offensive skill set, he didnt respond well to the physicality needed on the
    blocks. Marcus Lee made his presence known defensively but was absent on
    offense. That allowed opponents to outperform the Wildcats in the frontcourt in
    a way that hadnt really been done under Calipari.Those times appear to be over.
    Adebayo, a 6-foot-9 power forward, has the potential to bring strong post play
    back to UK. He doesnt mind the physical play inside. He rebounds well, and the
    description thrown around a lot by those who have watched him play most is high
    motor.The Wildcats will need all of Adebayos energy, especially with Labissiere
    (NBA) and Lee (transfer) no longer on the roster. Adebayo will likely start
    immediately and be the teams No. 1 option in the post.Mustapha Heron, Auburn
    Tigers Auburn has not made the NCAA tournament since 2003, which is currently
    the longest absence among SEC teams. Auburn coach Bruce Pearl will continue to
    hear about it until the Tigers receive a bid or he is no longer employed at the
    school. Landing Heron is a big step toward ending the drought.Heron should be a
    perfect fit with the hectic style of play Pearl favors. Hes athletic and loves
    to attack the rim, and he has deep range on his jumper. Heron will get plenty of
    shots to help erase the 18.4 PPG scoring void left by Kareem Canty.Pearl has
    called Heron a program changer, and he has already reshaped the future without
    having played a game. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard was ranked No. 25 by
    RecruitingNation, which made him the highest-ranked recruit Pearl has signed.
    There always has to be a first before others begin to follow, and it appears
    others have already started following Herons lead. Pearl is off to a quick start
    in the class of 2017, including landing a commitment from Austin Wiley, a
    6-foot-9 center from Birmingham, Alabama, who is ranked No. 19.Mario Kegler,
    Mississippi State Bulldogs Like Heron for Auburn, Keglers impact at Mississippi
    State expands beyond playing. Kegler marked the second class in a row that coach
    Ben Howland convinced the states best recruit to come home. Kegler, a native of
    Jackson, chose the Bulldogs despite offers from schools in every geographic
    direction after he played for prep power Oak Hill Academy in Virginia.Howland
    has compared Keglers skill set to another versatile small forward with big
    expectations whom he signed while at UCLA: Shabazz Muhammad. Kegler wasnt quite
    the coup that Howland pulled off by signing Malik Newman, who was the No. 10
    player in 2015. But Keglers No. 47 ranking makes him the highest among a
    seven-man class ranked fourth nationally by RecruitingNation.Kegler wont get a
    chance to reunite with his former high school teammate from Jacksons Callaway
    High School after Newman transferred to Kansas. But the 6-foot-8 Kegler will get
    a chance to help immediately. The Bulldogs will be one of the youngest teams in
    the league and nation, with 11 freshmen and sophomores on the roster.DeAaron
    Fox, Kentucky Wildcats Even though he was only 5-foot-9, Tyler Ulis left a big
    hole at point guard in the Wildcats lineup. He was one of the most steady floor
    leaders in the country last season, and he presented a strong case that he was
    the best pure point guard Calipari has had at UK.The 6-foot-3 Fox is a different
    type of point. Hell bring size back to the position, but can he bring the
    stability that Ulis provided? That could be the difference between UK being
    simply a good team and UK being a special one capable of another Final Four
    run.Fox has the kind of speed with the ball that has drawn comparisons to John
    Wall, but Wall didnt have the athleticism that Fox possesses to finish on fast
    breaks. Fox will need to avoid the trap of playing at only one speed. If he can
    learn that nuance, the Cats have enough talent around him to shine.Braxton Key,
    Alabama Crimson Tide Avery Johnson initially made a recruiting splash by
    securing a commitment from Terrance Ferguson, the No. 11 player in the class of
    2016. Fergusons decision to play professionally in Australia makes Key the
    highest-ranked recruit in Johnsons second season at the helm.Key was ranked No.
    33 in the class and should help the Crimson Tide fill a serious need. The Tide
    had a rebounding problem last season. They were especially porous in preventing
    offensive rebounds, as their percentage ranked 322nd nationally, according to
    Ken Pomeroy.Johnson just got his major key to correct that. At 6-foot-8,
    240-pounds, Key already has a physical presence that Bama sometimes lacked last
    season. He wont just be asked to rebound, though. Key is skilled around the
    basket and has some range and touch to step outside the paint and score.Key
    might not crack the starting lineup immediately, as Alabamas most experienced
    position is forward. But he should be a difference-maker, especially where the
    Tide need one most: on the boards. Orange

    . Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky
    (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1
    Michigan State. Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his
    sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

    -- There were a lot of firsts for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.
    Grey Air Zoom Running Shoes . The
    Vikings announced Thursday that Priefer will be one of seven holdovers from the
    previous staff, along with offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, wide receivers
    coach George Stewart and others. Norv Turner will mark his 30th year of coaching
    in the NFL as the offensive co-ordinator, as widely reported for weeks, and
    George Edwards will be the defensive co-ordinator.

    Boucher previously coached the Tampa Bay Lightning and had a 97-78-20 record
    over two-plus seasons. He was dismissed by the team last March after the
    Lightning struggled in the lockout-shortened season with a 13-18-1 record. Team
    Sweden is devilishly clever. Its players exude a quiet, calm confidence. There
    are plenty of reasons to believe that Sweden -- considered a perennial
    powerhouse among European teams -- will win the World Cup of Hockey. Its team is
    loaded with talent, depth, experience and goaltending. Pride is a major factor
    for Sweden, and its players have said time and again how badly they want to win
    this best-on-best tournament.How Team Sweden could winIt starts with?Henrik
    Lundqvist. The 34-year-old goalie has not played in a game since April 23, when
    he gave up six goals on 23 shots and was pulled after two periods in the?New
    York Rangers 6-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins?in the series-clinching Game 5
    of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. He took time during the summer
    to reflect and refocus his efforts to prepare to represent his country at the
    World Cup with the hope it will be a springboard to the regular season with the
    Rangers.Besides Lundqvist, Sweden has the best overall defense corps in the
    tournament. The blue line of Victor Hedman, Anton Stralman, Erik Karlsson,
    Niklas Hjalmarsson, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Mattias Ekholm and Hampus Lindholm has
    the ability to dominate the opposition in every part of the game. Those players
    will also help offensively and can shut down any opposing offense in this
    tournament.The top forward line of Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin and Loui Eriksson
    has been outstanding. Beyond that trio, opponents also have to deal with Filip
    Forsberg, Nicklas Backstrom and Patric Hornqvist as a second line. Depth and
    puck possession are key for Sweden, whose special teams, especially the
    power-play unit, are major weapons. Karlsson will basically quarterback both
    unnits from the point, and the Sedins, Eriksson and Larsson will join him to
    make up the first power-play unit.ddddddddddddHow Team Sweden could loseIf
    Sweden does lose, it will be at the hands of an extremely talented team.
    Opponents will try to limit the Swedes puck-possession time. If Sweden doesnt
    have the puck, or cant get it -- or if Lundqvist isnt sharp -- that could be its
    downfall. With that in mind, the Swedes focused on winning faceoffs during the
    pretournament, so quickly gaining possession of the drop will be key.Health is,
    of course, a factor for every team, but Sweden cant afford to lose anyone else.
    Before training camp, captain Henrik Zetterberg, goalie Robin Lehner, defenseman
    Niklas Kronwall and forward Alexander Steen?all bowed out of the World Cup.
    Forward Rickard Rakell was recently scratched from the roster because of an
    unspecified illness. Despite all that, Sweden begins the tournament in good
    shape.What to watch for: To win big, Swedes must think smallSince this
    best-on-best tournament is being played on the smaller North American ice
    surface, goals will be at a premium. Most goals should come from the dirty areas
    in front of the net, so Sweden spent a lot of time during camp working on
    small-area games. That forces quick decisions with the puck and the Swedes want
    that to become second nature, because teams will attempt to push them around in
    those areas. Keep an eye on young forwards Forsberg and Jakob Silfverberg. Both
    are coming into their own for the national team, and this could be the perfect
    stage for their continued development. Cheap
