    导出博客文章COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Its an old cliché; winning on the road in college basketball is
    no easy task.As a visiting opponent, having only seven players on scholarship
    doesnt make it any easier.It didnt seem to faze No. 20 Arizona, which looked
    polished and poised as it defeated Missouri for the third consecutive season,
    cruising to a 79-60 victory Saturday in its first true road game of the
    season.Rawle Alkins led the way for the Wildcats with 19 points and nine
    rebounds. Kobi Simmons had 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting, and Kadeem Allen added
    17 points, seven rebounds and four assists.Were going through a lot right now,
    Arizona coach Sean Miller said. How we practice and every game, its just really
    crucial for us. I think that in short time, Im hopeful we can get some guys
    back, but in the meantime, this was a meaningful game. ... Im proud of our guys
    effort and approach tonight.The Wildcats (8-2) jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the
    first 3:12, eventually taking a 25-8 lead with 10:29 remaining in the first
    half. From that point, Missouri outscored Arizona 28-16 in the half, including a
    7-0 run to end the opening 20 minutes.The Tigers (5-4) continued to chip away at
    Arizonas lead, eventually cutting the deficit to 45-41 early in the second half.
    However, the Wildcats responded with a 26-4 run that included a Missouri scoring
    drought of 6:59, halting any momentum the Tigers had mustered.I thought we did
    great job of coming back, Missouri coach Kim Anderson said. I was really proud
    of our guys and the way they competed. In the second half early, we had some
    chances, and then they went on a great run and for all practical purposes, put
    the game out of reach.Kevin Puryear had a team-best 11 points and seven
    rebounds. Leading scorer Frankie Hughes was held in check by the Wildcats
    backcourt, scoring 10 points on 2-of-13 shooting. Russell Woods had eight points
    and six rebounds, and Cullen VanLeer added eight points, all in the first half.A
    reported crowd of over 10,000 was on hand for the only currently ranked opponent
    on Missouris home schedule.VanLeer attributed the Tigers comeback efforts to the
    home crowd energy.The magnitude of the crowd was really nice to have. We
    appreciated everyone that came out. We were upset we couldnt get the win today,
    but hopefully we can continue to get bigger crowds and itll help us get rhythm
    and flow in the game, VanLeer said.Arizona dominated the glass, outrebounding
    Missouri 46-28, its worst rebounding margin of the season.The Wildcats led
    wire-to-wire despite nearly doubling Missouris turnovers, 15-8, and committing
    22 fouls to the Tigers 11. Missouri shot 66.7 percent from the free throw line,
    including 9 of 17 in the second half.BIG PICTUREArizona: The Wildcats entered
    the game shooting 36.6 percent from 3-point range, but caught fire early against
    the Tigers, shooting 54.2 percent. Missouri made just 1 of 8 3-point attempts in
    the second half while the Wildcats made 6 of 10. Missouri was coming off a
    season-high 3-point output against Miami (Ohio).Missouri: A tenacious on-ball
    defender, Missouri point guard Terrence Phillips has struggled with foul trouble
    in recent games. In Mondays 81-55 win over Miami (Ohio) Phillips played only 10
    minutes in the second half, finishing with four fouls. He picked up his third
    foul 3:56 into the second half, limiting him to just 16 minutes against the
    Wildcats.PIVOTAL MOMENTWoods received a bounce pass in the lane on a fast break
    and gathered for a two-handed slam in front of the Missouri student section that
    would have cut the deficit to 45-43, but missed the dunk. On the ensuing Arizona
    possession, Woods was whistled for a foul, leading to two free throws by Arizona
    forward Dusan Ristic, who finished with 12 points and six rebounds.LET
    DOWNFreshman 7-footer Lauri Markkanen entered the game as Arizonas leading
    scorer and rebounder, averaging 17.8 points and 7.2 rebounds. Against Missouri,
    the native of Finland had a season-low eight points to go with six rebounds, and
    fouled out with 2:53 remaining.Puryear discussed his approach to defending
    Markkanen.Just being physical with him, Puryear said. Not letting him get
    comfortable with where he was on the floor with the ball. He likes to operate in
    the mid-post area, so I tried to eliminate that.UP NEXTArizona: hosts Grand
    Canyon on Wednesday.Missouri: hosts Eastern Illinois next Saturday.

    England’s Backing the Best initiative will help our national teams become more
    representative, according to the organisation’s director of sport. Backing the
    Best is a bursary scheme that will support the next generation of sporting
    talent across more than 30 sports, helping cover expensive costs like travel,
    accommodation, nutrition and medical bills.The programme is backed by £5.5
    million of new National Lottery funding which aims to level the playing field in
    top-level sport. The awards are worth up to £5,000 per year. Jessica Hunter, a
    100m hurdler with a personal best less than one second behind Jessica
    Ennis-Hill, is among the first batch of around 60 recipients that will benefit
    from a Backing the Best bursary.The 19-year-old has previously been unable to
    afford physiotherapy and specialist coaching and has even been forced to miss
    out on competitions due to a shortage of funds.It does make you feel annoyed
    because it makes you feel like youre not getting what you deserve, Hunter told
    Tuesdays Sportswomen show on Sky Sports News HQ.If you have that support and the
    financial stability behind you then it definitely has an impact. Jessica Hunter
    is within a second of Jess Ennis-Hills hurdles personal best Sport England
    director of sport, Phil Smith, said: Backing the Best has been designed to give
    a helping hand to those who need it - so that ability and attitude are thhe only
    criteria for success, and not money.ddddddddddddUltimately, we want our national
    teams to be truly representative of our country, rather than just those that can
    afford to reach the top.We are incredibly proud of our first group of athletes;
    they are an inspiring group of young people that deserve to be recognised for
    their talent and dedication.The four-year Backing the Best scheme was launched
    after a study, carried out by Leeds Beckett University, showed the rising cost
    of becoming a sports star has led to some of Englands best up-and-coming talent
    dropping out. Chief executive Tim Lawler with SportsAid patron HRH The Duchess
    of Cambridge Charity SportsAid - who have supported emerging British athletes
    for the last 40 years - are helping deliver the Backing the Best scheme.Tim
    Lawler, chief executive of SportsAid, said: Backing the Best is exciting. Its a
    new initiative never seen before in the environment of talent in sport, being
    targeted at those young sports people facing the toughest financial
    challenges.Without support through Backing the Best, there is a chance some
    talented young athletes will be lost to their sport; with Backing the Best, they
    have a chance to reach their full potential. Also See: SportsWomen Latest Show
