SAN DIEGO -- San Diego State coach Steve Fisher thought about giving Winston Shepard a breather just past the midway mark of the second half in a close game against Air Force. It turns out the last thing the sophomore forward needed was a spot on the bench. Shepard scored 14 of his 16 points in the final 7 minutes, 14 seconds and the No. 5 Aztecs bounced back from their first loss since mid-November to beat Air Force 64-56 on Saturday night. Shepard started his hot streak by keying a 9-0 run with a 3-pointer, a slam dunk following a steal by Xavier Thames and two free throws. After the Falcons closed to 54-50 with 2:28 to go, Shepard converted a three-point play and hit two more free throws to give SDSU some breathing room. "I was having a tough night up to that point," Shepard said. "Honestly, I have to thank my teammates, X Thames, coach Fish; they stuck with me and had encouraging words for me. I just wanted to go out there and continue to help my team." Shepard made seven of nine free throws. "With the style of basketball I play, being able to handle the ball, I find myself in the paint a lot," he said. "I was taught a rule when I was young, when you get to the paint, at worst, you have to get to the free throw line. Not only that, a lot of the time tonight I wasnt handling the ball. My teammates were finding me under the basket. I have to credit my teammates with that and once again Id like to thank them for sticking with me and finding me in spots." Said Fisher: "I thought it was time for him to get a break and he made a 3 and then made a rebound or steal and we rode with him for a while and he performed. He did a nice job. "Winston is a very, very smart basketball player," Fisher added, noting that hes getting better at passing and shooting free throws. "He knows how to and has the ability to get to the rim. Hes a good player. Hes a hard guard. He played the next play. Sometimes all of us, Winston in particular, if youre not careful you worry about what just happened and all of sudden something negative happens on the next trip. Hes much, much better on that front, and thats allowed him to grow." Thames and Dwayne Polee II each scored 13 points for SDSU (22-2, 11-1 Mountain West), which had its 20-game winning streak snapped Tuesday night at Wyoming. It was SDSUs first loss since a 69-60 home defeat to Arizona on Nov. 14. Josh Davis had 10 rebounds. Max Yon scored 20 and Kamryn Williams 12 for Air Force (10-14, 4-9). The Falcons leading scorer, Tre Coggins, was held to nine points, nearly seven below his average. "They were really on him," coach Dave Pilipovich said of the Aztecs play on Coggins. "They were there on the catch and they are so long with their extra length and size that he couldnt create a little space to create an advantage there." Coggins had 29 points in a 79-72 home loss to the Aztecs on Jan. 13. "Trey had an off night, so somebody had to step up," Yon said. "So Kam Williams and I took over the scoring a little bit, but it just wasnt our night. "I think we handled their pressure better this time around, but they are long. We did a good job rebounding. But being in this environment, with them at home, is an advantage for them. But we are right there and can play with anybody with the way we battled." With the game tied at 28 four minutes into the second half, Thames made consecutive 3-pointers and Polee had a tip-in and then a slam dunk on an alley-oop pass from Shepard to give the Aztecs a 38-28 lead. Air Force closed to 44-40 on Yons three-point play and a reverse layup by DeLovell Earls sandwiched around a 3-pointer by SDSUs Aqeel Quinn. Shepard then came on strong for SDSU during a 9-0 run that gave the Aztecs a 53-40 lead with 5:20 left. Shepard had a 3-pointer, a slam dunk after a steal and pass by Thames and two free throws. JJ OBrien had a bank shot. San Diego State led 24-23 at halftime after scoring 12 of the final 18 points. Vapormax Danmark Online .

That gave the Milwaukee Bucks veteran forward a reason to smile.Each week, TSN.ca Fantasy Editor Scott Cullen and NFL Editors Ben Fisher and Mitch Ward discuss three hot fantasy football topics. 1) With a competent QB finally throwing him the ball, is Larry Fitzgerald back to being an elite fantasy WR? Cullen: Yes. Its not as though Fitzgerald lost his skill last season, he was merely a victim of Kevin Kolb, John Skelton and Ryan Lindley throwing him the ball. Palmer isnt great, but threw for more than 4,000 yards in 15 games with the Raiders last season and no one in the Raiders receiving corps is in Fitzgeralds league. I projected Fitzgerald for more than 1,300 yards and nine touchdowns this season, putting him fifth in value among wide receivers and thats elite enough company for me. Ward: Depends on your definition of elite. Is he top-3? Maybe not. Is he top-10? Definitely. Calvin Johnson is still the alpha male at the position and there are guys like AJ Green, Julio Jones and a few others that I like a little more, but Fitz is certainly back to being a high-end WR1. Physically and athletically he is a nightmare for opposing DBs, and with Carson Palmer throwing him the ball you can expect big numbers in 2013. The most appealing part of his stat line from Week 1 for fantasy owners is the 14 targets he got. The Cardinals are set to throw the ball a ton this season and Fitzgerald will be the biggest beneficiary. Fisher: Larry Fitzgeralds last six quarterbacks were Derek Anderson, John Skelton, Max Hall, Kevin Kolb, Ryan Lindley, and Brian Hoyer. Remember the last time he had a decent QB to work with? It was 2009 with Kurt Warner, and he set a career high with 13 touchdown catches that year. Carson Palmer isnt Kurt Warner, but hes a decent fantasy QB and he makes Fitzgerald relevant again (he was a top five receiver in Week 1). Add in head coach Bruce Arians affinity for the air game and yes, Fitzgerald will be an elite receiver this season. Fitz should finish the year among the top fantasy receivers, guys like Calvin Johnson, AJ Green and Dez Bryant. 2) In light of Reggie Bushs big performance in Week 1 with the Lions, is he finally the running back he was supposed to be coming out of USC? Cullen: It would be hard for anyone to live up to the player that Reggie Bush was supposed to be coming out of USC -- he had 2218 yards from scrimmage (9.4 yards per touch!) and 18 touchdowns as a junior -- but he is definitely in a position to succeed. Bush gained 2,660 yards and scored 15 touchdowns over the past two seasons in Miami, establishing that hes a legitimate starting running back in the NFL and that should continue in Detroit, maybe to the tune of 1,300 or 1,400 yards from scrimmage. But lets not overreact to one game against Minnesota, especially one in which Bush had 25 touches, a workload hes had just six times in 92 pro games. Ward: 191 yards and a touchdown sure was a nice Detroit debutt.dddddddddddd While I dont know if Bush will ever live up to the massive hype that accompanied him to the NFL, he might get close with the Lions. He should get 20 or so touches every week and the Lions will look to use him in open space where he can make the make the most of his athletic abilities. If he stays healthy, he could flirt with 2,000 yards from scrimmage. Fisher: Reggie Bush had incredible expectations coming out of USC in 2006, and while I still dont think hell hit those lofty standards with the Lions, this year will be the closest hell come in his eight years in the league. Bushs Super Bowl heroism masked a mediocre run in New Orleans and while he was improved in Miami, he was still never confused for the top back a lot of people thought hed be. I still cant see him joining the elite fantasy runners on a week to week basis (guys like AP, Doug Martin, and Ray Rice) but Bush is right there after that group, and that makes him a top 10 RB play. Pretty good considering how his NFL career started with the Saints. 3) After Terrelle Pryors mostly impressive start for the Raiders, is he now a fantasy football QB1? Cullen: Too soon to go offering up QB1 status for Pryor -- there are a lot of good quarterbacks in the league and we dont know if Pryors legitimately accurate enough to remain effective. He does become interesting as a QB2, though because with even modest passing totals, Pryor has a chance to make things happen when he runs the ball and that rushing yardage can accumulate into some pretty nice fantasy value with one point for every 10 yards rushing (compared to one for every 25 yards passing) in most leagues. For now, Pryor interesting, with lots of upside, but not nearly proven enough to go ahead of the top 10-12 quarterbacks. Ward: QB1 is a bit of a stretch. I see Terrell Pryor as a solid QB2 with a high fantasy floor. The passing yards and touchdowns wont be very good but with his ability to run the ball, Pryor will start with a base of five or six points every single week. The Raiders will also play from behind often which means plenty of opportunities to pick up garbage time stats. Due to his upside Id rather roll the dice with Pryor than guys like Philip Rivers, Alex Smith or Matt Schaub. Fisher: I think he will be. Terrelle Pryor was the ninth-ranked fantasy QB in Week 1. His point total was aided in large part to the fact he was second in the league in rushing with 112 yards. While thatll probably the last time hell be that high on the leagues rushing list, his athleticism and creativity lends to at least 60-70 yards per game, or six or seven fantasy points. If he hits 200 yards passing every week, certainly not out of the question, thats another eight points. Then Pryor just needs one score, either through the air or on the ground and hes a 20-point player, minimum. Should he keep his interceptions under wraps, Pryor will remain a low-end QB1 play. ' ' '
