    made it difficult for the nations second-leading scorer all night long.Russell
    still managed to score 19 points, but the 19th-ranked Wildcats earned the
    victory.Arizona overcame a rash of turnovers and a disjointed-at-times offense
    with a hounding defense, making Russell work for everything he got in a 64-54
    win over Grand Canyon on Wednesday night.It was just knowing what he wants to
    do, where he wants to go and eliminating that, Arizonas Kobi Simmons said of
    stopping Russell.Russell entered the game scoring 25.4 points per game and had
    42 against No. 11 Louisville , one of the nations best defensive teams.The
    slightly built senior guard is the focal point of every teams defense and it was
    no different against Arizona.The Wildcats (9-2) used a physical tactic against
    Russell, chasing and bumping him all over McKale Center while holding him to
    8-of-21 shooting and 1 of 7 from 3-point range.DeWaynes unbelievable, Grand
    Canyon coach Dan Majerle said. To be keyed on, especially with the team we have,
    they know hes going to be the guy getting all the shots and he finds a way to
    get some shots up.Arizona needed that kind of effort on a night filled with
    turnovers and shots that wouldnt fall.The Wildcats built a 16-point lead in the
    first half, but allowed the short-handed Antelopes to claw most of the way back
    due to a rash of turnovers.Arizona had 19 turnovers overall and struggled
    shooting in the second half before wearing down Grand Canyon for its 39th
    straight non-conference home win.Simmons scored 13 points, and Rawle Alkins
    added 11 points and eight rebounds for the Wildcats.I thought it was a great
    challenge for our players, especially our freshmen, Arizona coach Sean Miller
    said. Were going to run into some of this moving forward and some of the teams
    that play with their style, are that physical and that tough-minded are also
    going to be much bigger.Grand Canyon (5-5), which is in the final year of its
    transition to Division I, kept Louisville within reach until late last week and
    did the same against Arizona.Russell almost singlehandedly kept the Antelopes in
    the Louisville game, but had help against Arizona in one of college basketballs
    toughest road arenas.Russell had 11 points in the first half, helping Grand
    Canyon trim a 16-point deficit to 32-25 by halftime.Arizona had 12 turnovers in
    the first half and struggled to make shots early in the second, allowing the
    Antelopes to trim the lead to 44-40. Arizona tried to pull away after that, but
    Oscar Frayer stayed aggressive as the Wildcats keyed on Russell, scoring all of
    his 16 points in the second half to keep the game from being a blowout.We played
    really hard tonight, Russell said. Thats one thing we can definitely hang our
    hats on: We play hard.BIG PICTUREGrand Canyon played well against a Top 25 team
    for the second time in a week and should be set up well for when the WAC season
    starts.Arizona was not nearly as crisp as it was in a blowout win over Missouri
    the last time out, playing disjointedly on offense at times but well on
    defense.FREE THROWSArizonas size advantage led to a big disparity in free
    throws. The Wildcats went to the line 27 times and made 20, while the Antelopes
    took just 12, hitting six.SCHEDULING TOUGHMajerle has been aggressive about
    scheduling top-quality opponents for the Antelopes, hoping to prepare them for
    the jump to Division I next season while giving the program exposure.Grand
    Canyon opened this season at top-ranked Duke, hosted Louisville earlier this
    season, and previously had games against Kentucky and Indiana.This should only
    help us, Majerle said.UP NEXTGrand Canyon hosts Mississippi State on Saturday to
    kick off a four-game home stand.Arizona plays at Texas A&M on Saturday, its
    final road game before the Pac-12 season starts.---More AP college basketball: and

    Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden
    (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell
    opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts
    quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later

    . It was the kind of score that might make everyone else wonder which course he
    was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing. Crouched behind
    the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at the powerful
    American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive seen all year in
    the last two days.

    . -- Patrick Reed got an early start in golf. Nick
    Mitchells lifelong journey to train racehorses in provincial NSW has taken him
    to three continents and Sydneys big stage where his sights remain.After Radical
    Impact finished 13th in the Provincial Championship Final in 2015, Dream Lane
    brought the trainer back to the race at Randwick in April where she was fifth
    less than two lengths behind winner Danish Twist.Dream Lane is set to run in
    Saturdays benchmark handicap over 1200m at Rosehill, which could be her last
    start before she aims at qualifying for next years $400,000 final.Mitchell grew
    up in the heart of English racing at Newmarket where his father Pat trained
    horses.As a 25-year-old he went to work in Japan with the intention of staying
    one year and worked in racing there for more than 11.I went back to England and
    didnt like it then came over here, Mitchell said.I was foreman for Tim Martin at
    Rosehill for four years while I was waiting for my visa to come through so I
    could start training myself.After going it alone three years ago, Mitchell has
    gradually built his team.He now has 15 horses in work at Hawkesbury, another 10
    in spelling paddocks and will look to up his numbers to the mid-20s iin the
    coming years.ddddddddddddWhen I started I only had two horses so were going all
    right, he said.Injury stunted Dream Lanes juvenile career before Cobbitty Lodge
    approached Mitchell to see if he was interested in training her.I got her as an
    unraced rising four-year-old, Mitchell said.I thought shes bred by Emirates
    (Park) so she must go all right.It was just being in the right place at the
    right time.Mitchell is convinced Dream Lane has improved since finishing fourth
    in the Listed Ladies Day Cup on her home track on November 3.Shes pulled up from
    her race here really well and shes probably hitting peak fitness now, Mitchell
    said.I think Rosehill will suit her with the big, long straight.Dream Lane has
    won two races from 17 starts and broke through the $100,000 prize money barrier
    in the Ladies Day Cup.Mitchell he has no regrets about targeting the Provincial
    Championships, despite acknowledging the impact it may have had on her winning
    record.It was a great ride for all the owners having one in the Championships,
    he said. ' ' '
