OMAHA, Neb. -- November college basketball games typically dont mean much in the big picture of a season.As far as Greg McDermott was concerned, No. 22 Creightons 79-67 victory over No. 9 Wisconsin on Tuesday night meant a whole lot.You could argue it might be the best win weve had since Ive been here when you consider where were trying to get the program back to, where the Wisconsin program is today, and in the manner that we did it, the Bluejays seventh-year coach said.Khyri Thomas scored 15 of his 18 points in the second half, breaking open a close game with a three-point play and 3-pointer on consecutive possessions, as the Bluejays beat a Wisconsin team reached the Sweet 16 and returned all five starters.Maurice Watson Jr. had 17 points and 10 assists and Marcus Foster added 15 points for the Bluejays (2-0).I think new can go super far, especially in conference play and in the (NCAA) Tournament, Thomas said. We have so many athletic guys.The game was part of the Gavitt Tipoff Games matching Big East and Big Ten teams the first week of the season.Coming in here, I knew it would be a heck of a challenge, Badgers coach Greg Gard said. Gregs got a very good team; hes kind of earmarked this year as being their year. Congratulate his team on playing very well. We showed at times some very uncharacteristic Wisconsin-like handlings of possessions where we got a little disheveled at times.Bronson Koenig scored 21 points and Nigel Hayes had 16 points to lead the Badgers (1-1). But Wisconsin made only 3 of 26 3-pointers after starting 8 of 13 from beyond the arc. The Badgers also committed 16 turnovers, 12 of them by starters.Nobody forces Wisconsin into 16 turnovers, nobody keeps Wisconsin off the free-throw line, McDermott said. For us to beat a veteran team like they are, that plays the right way, and the success theyve had in their careers, is really a feather in the cap for our team.Hayes, the Big Ten preseason player of the year, scored 11 points in the first 12 minutes and was held scoreless until there were 11 minutes left in the game.Thats when Creighton started its decisive run. Cole Huffs jumper from in front of the Creighton bench put the Bluejays up 52-50. After Toby Hegner hit a 3, Thomas stripped the ball from Koenig, drove for a layup and converted a three-point play. Happ missed on the other end, and then Thomas drilled a 3 to make it 63-52.BIG PICTUREWisconsin: Typical November game. The Badgers glut of turnovers and impatience on offense, especially in the first half, will provide plenty of fodder for film study. Weve got to be able to touch the post more and try to play more inside-out, Gard said.Creighton: The Bluejays have one of the best home-court advantages in the nation, and they were fueled by it.The Bluejays got out to a quick lead, never let the Badgers go on a big run and got big-time defensive performances from 7-foot redshirt freshman Justin Patton and the 6-8 Huff.POLL IMPLICATIONSCreighton will merit a promotion in the Top 25 if it goes unbeaten this weekend in a tournament in the Virgin Islands. Wisconsin probably will drop, but not much.THOMAS RISEThomas went from struggling through conference play last season to becoming a major contributor in the NIT, averaging 12.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in three games.All of a sudden, his frame of mind changed going into the offseason, McDermott said. His motivation was better, his confidence is in a different place, hes eager to get into the gym because he tasted a little success in postseason basketball. That has carried over.ANTHEM PROTESTHayes and Jordan Hill, as they did in Wisconsins exhibition game and opener, stood a couple feet behind teammates during the national anthem. Hayes has said he doesnt take a knee on the court because it would be painful, so he chooses to stand back.UP NEXTWisconsin hosts Chicago State on Thursday.Creighton plays Washington State on Friday at the Paradise Jam in the Virgin Islands.---More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org Cheap Air Max 270 Wholesale .

Glasgow got back on track in the Guinness PRO12 after overcoming a determined Newport Gwent Dragons side 26-17 at Rodney Parade.The Scots took the spoils in Newport thanks to tries by front-row forwards Corey Flynn and Alex Allan but had to repel a spirited comeback from the hosts.The Dragons trailed 16-3 at the break but fired back through prop Sam Hobbs and centre Jack Dixon only for the key score to come through Allan with half an hour left.Both teams went into the game seeking to avoid a hat-trick of defeats, the Dragons having lost to Munster and Treviso while the Warriors had been beaten by the unbeaten pair of Cardiff Blues and Ulster.They do, however, operate at opposite ends of the table, with the hosts looking for a big scalp and Glasgow needing to get their title tilt back on course.Glasgow had the better of the opening exchanges but had to settle for a pair of Finn Russell penalties.However, they took command on the half hour when a driving lineout ended with former All Black Flynn peeling off and powering over.The Dragons were given an opening when Glasgow flanker Fraser Brown was yellow-carded for a dangerouss tackle with Nick Macleod getting the hosts on the scoreboard.ddddddddddddHowever, they allowed Russell to swiftly respond for the visitors and it was the Warriors who ended the half on the front foot before settling for a 16-3 lead.The Dragons desperately needed a fast start to the second half and they got just that to lead 17-16 with 49 minutes gone.First Hobbs powered over from close range and then a turnover ended with Dixon finishing superbly in the left corner.Macleods pair of conversions meant that the Warriors were behind and in need of a response, which they got through the unlikely source of prop Allan after he showed neat footwork to dance over from 20 metres for a score that Russell converted.At 23-17 it was still very much game on as the hour passed with the Warriors defending stoutly to retain their slender advantage.However, they secured victory with just over a minute left through the right boot of Russell with his penalty also denying the Dragons a deserved losing bonus point.
