    . Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal
    from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The
    Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into
    his own net.

    . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a
    World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory
    on the circuit.
    . Barcelonas entertaining victory ensured the defending Spanish champions
    retained their share of the league lead with Atletico Madrid two rounds ahead of
    their meeting in the capital. Real Madrid needed a late goal by substitute Jese
    Rodriguez to earn a 3-2 victory at Valencia to stay in third place and three
    points behind its title rivals.

    . This should be celebrated because it will not
    always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs
    these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to
    continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team
    in the middle of their season.
    Mont Jones Broncos Jersey
    . Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC failed to
    make the postseason while Montreal Impact fell at the first hurdle losing
    heavily to Houston Dynamo in the Eastern Conference Knockout Round. Vince Carter
    is no longer the NBAs highest flyer, though hes certainly not ready to be
    grounded.Once one of basketballs most ferocious dunkers who put opponents on
    posters long before there were internet Vines, he can no longer rely just on his
    athleticism. Nearing 40 years old, the guy who famously put his arm through the
    rim while winning a dunk contest now often plays below it.Like everyone who
    wants to keep playing toward middle age, its about the mind now as much as the
    legs.Thats how I was able to stay around this long, is just, I learned the game,
    Carter said. Not being able to play. Everybody can play basketball, but learning
    the ins and outs of the game is what has kept me around.Same with Manu Ginobili
    in San Antonio, Jason Terry in Milwaukee, Paul Pierce in Los Angeles and Dirk
    Nowitzki in Dallas, who follow Carter as the oldest players in the NBA this
    season.Basketball is a game a lot of people dont understand, Terry said. When
    you are not as athletically gifted, you still have your brain. I learned from
    none other than Jason Kidd.Terry plays for Kidd now, but they were teammates in
    Dallas when the Mavericks won the 2011 NBA title. Kidd by then was well past his
    dynamic days as a nightly triple-double threat, a guy who burst into the league
    with everything but a reliable jumper and left it at 40 ranked third in career
    3-pointers.As I got older, the speed limit started coming into effect. Instead
    of going 55, I could only go 45, Kidd said. But, you know, when things started
    to go a little bit slower, you got to see things a lot better. For me, things
    were a lot clearer. As you get older, thats the best time to get better at the
    game. You can always learn, you can always do something different. For me it was
    shooting the ball. If I wanted to play for a while I needed to make an outside
    shot.Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant made similar transitions, outworking and
    outsmarting opponents when they could no longer just outplay them. Now Carter,
    who will turn 40 on Jan. 26 and ranks in the top 25 in career points and games
    played, does the same in Memphis -- where he surpassed Jordan this season as the
    oldest player to score 20 points off the bench.Like Jordan, he played at North
    Carolina for the mastermind, Dean Smith, as Carter called him, where even as a
    teenager he was being prepared for how he would need to play 20 years later.So
    he taught us how to learn the game, how to take your abilities and dominate to
    the best of your ability, Carter said. And with that being said, as Ive gotten
    older, just the little things that we tend to not want to do as a young guy
    stuck with me, as far as just the little thiings that we say a lot of guys make
    mistakes on.ddddddddddddCarter acknowledges tiring of the endless play the right
    way mantra preached at Chapel Hill, but now he lives it. He cant just jump over
    players like he did to Frederic Weis in the 2000 Olympics , though he quickly
    earned the trust of first-time coach David Fizdale, who had Carter on the floor
    defending 21-year-old Andrew Wiggins to spark the Grizzlies comeback victory
    over Minnesota in their season opener.Again, Ive said this before, I dont put
    limitations on anyone because of age, whether its youth or because theyre one of
    the elder statesman, Fizdale said. Vince Carter, hes a veteran, hes a
    professional, he stays in shape. I always remind people he was the best athlete
    in the NBA, so his falloff athletically isnt the same as an average athletes
    falloff.Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said the key for players who are effective
    into their mid-to-late 30s is their work ethic, and he marvels at what the
    38-year-old Nowitzki puts himself through to keep playing on legs that support
    his 7-foot frame, particularly in this season when hes battled an injured
    Achilles tendon.Medical enhancements have helped, with teams providing such
    improvements for their players that Mavericks owner Mark Cuban believes young
    players entering the league now should be able to play into their 40s if they
    have the talent.When I first got to the NBA, taking care of your health meant
    not eating Twinkies before a game, Cuban said. Guys would smoke cigarettes,
    theyd drink, there would be beer -- people sometimes would have a beer at
    halftime. There literally were bars in locker rooms. Things have changed.The
    things that we let players do 15 years ago that created inflammation and created
    orthopedic issues in their bodies, we know not to do as much anymore.Carter has
    prolonged his career by becoming a reserve for the last five seasons, and by
    resisting the urge to create the spectacular highlights that made him the
    leading vote-getter to the All-Star Game four times. The Grizzlies say hes
    questionable to play Wednesday in Toronto, his first NBA home, after hurting his
    hip Monday.He still gets the internet buzzing -- and occasionally surprises
    himself -- with some vintage Vinsanity, but mostly skips the unnecessary risks
    to preserve his body to get through the long NBA season.And how many more after
    this?I dont know yet, he said. Im still flying. Its not time yet.---AP freelance
