DURHAM, N. Cheap Bears Jerseys .C. -- With three big men out with injuries, top-ranked Duke is leaning on its guards for a little bit of everything.Grayson Allen had 25 points and 10 rebounds, freshman Frank Jackson added 21 points and the Blue Devils beat Grand Canyon 96-61 on Saturday.We have to rebound -- the whole perimeter has to rebound, said Allen, who finished one rebound shy of his career best. We know the big guys that we do have in the game, theyre going to be battling, boxing out the other bigs, so the perimeter, we need to crash in and rebound and clean up all the loose stuff.Amile Jefferson scored 15 points, Luke Kennard finished with 14 and Matt Jones had 11 points for the short-handed Blue Devils (2-0).Once again playing without three injured freshman post players, they kept things largely in their guards hands and shot 53 percent to win their second game in less than 24 hours.I like my team a lot. We just have to keep getting better, and then once all these injuries are taken care of in some time, we can become a different team, coach Mike Krzyzewski said. Right now, we have to be this team and not think about who we could be. Our complete focus has got to be how to win with this team.Now, with those two tuneup games out of the way, the focus squarely falls on one of the marquee matchups of the early season: a date with No. 3 Kansas on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.Shaq Carr had 18 points to lead pesky Grand Canyon (0-1), which gave Duke more of a test than Marist did in a 94-49 rout a night earlier but came up empty in its second opener against a top-ranked team in three years.BIG PICTUREGrand Canyon: The Antelopes -- who lost to No. 1 Kentucky by 40 points in 2014 -- will have to be content with making things tough on Duke for a good chunk of the first half and leading for about 7 1/2 minutes of the first half behind Carr, who repeatedly found his way through the Blue Devils defense and to the rim.I didnt know what to expect, coach Dan Majerle said about a team missing three starters. I was happy with how we started off. ... I thought maybe the first 12, 13 minutes, we played pretty good and were going to learn about our team as we go along.Duke: The Blue Devils shortened their bench significantly, playing only seven players in the pre-garbage time portion of the game -- and the seventh, freshman Javin DeLaurier, logged only 6 minutes in all. Theyre trying to keep things working without injured freshman big men Harry Giles (knee), Marques Bolden (lower leg) and Jayson Tatum (foot). Krzyzewski says he doesnt anticipate having them against the Jayhawks and we may not have them all week.Whatever amount of time, whatever it is, lets just get well, Krzyzewski added. And while you guys are getting well and supporting the team, lets become a team with these nine guys. We made that a priority this past week. Were trying to figure out the system we need for this group of guys.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Blue Devils trailed for the first time this season but once again showed no reason why they should be ranked any lower than No. 1.THE COLANGELO CONNECTIONBoth coaches have strong ties to Jerry Colangelo. He was the Phoenix Suns owner when they drafted Majerle in 1988 and lured Thunder Dan to the Grand Canyon program in 2013.And with Colangelo as its chairman and Dukes Mike Krzyzewski as the coach, the U.S. national team won the last three Olympic gold medals.STAT WATCHThe Blue Devils were 21 of 31 from the free-throw line while Grand Canyon was 6 of 12. The Antelopes didnt attempt their first foul shot until just 1:44 remained in the first half -- by which point Duke had already attempted 17 and built a 39-28 lead.UP NEXTGrand Canyon: The Antelopes head to Penn State on Nov. 15 for their second game in the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off.Duke: The Blue Devils get their first big test Nov. 15 when they face Kansas in the Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden.---Follow Joedy McCreary at http://twitter.com/joedyap---More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org Cheap Bears Jerseys China . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. Cheap Chicago Bears Jerseys . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. http://www.cheapbearsjerseyselite.com/ . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a special gift tucked inside. Nico Rosberg says he knew Red Bull had a mistake on strategy the moment Max Verstappen stopped for intermediates at the Brazilian Grand Prix.After the final race restart, Verstappen had snatched second from Rosberg with a breathtaking move through Turn 2. Red Bull then decided to gamble on the rain disappearing and the track conditions improving, bringing both its cars in for intermediate tyres.The decision proved to be misjudged as Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo had to pit again to switch back to wet tyres. Verstappen subsequently charged through the field from 16th to third, but did not have enough laps to catch Rosberg in second.Rosberg, who now just needs a podium in Abu Dhabi to win his first world title, immediately knew it was a mistake.I was out there to try and win the race, said Rosberg. Especially in the first part of the race, my mindset was - what can I do to get back forwards again?But at the same time I was realistic about the fact that it was going to be very difficult to get back in front of him [Verstappen], because he was on the same pace to us.But I was actually happy when he boxed. I understood at the time that they were just taking a gamble for the race win, thats what they were doing, but I thought that was not the right thing to do. Wholesale Bears Jerseys. I was surprised because, at the same time, just earlier, theyd predicted more rain in the very near future.Even if it did work for a couple of laps, the prediction at the time was a bit more rain, and since I was on such a knifes edge, just a little bit more rain would have put it over the edge. So at the time I was quite comfortable with it.I was sure that inters were the wrong thing, because if Im really struggling with unpredictable aquaplaning on full wets, then inters are not the right way to go.When asked if he had been surprised or happy by the decision, he replied: Both, surprised and happy, yeah. Because at the same time just earlier they predicted more rain in the very near future so even if it did work for a couple of laps the prediction at the time was a bit more rain and since it was on such a knife-edge, just a little bit of rain would have again put it over the edge. So at the time I was quite comfortable with it.
