OMAHA, Neb. -- Contrasting styles of play will be on display Tuesday when ninth-ranked Wisconsin visits No. 22 Creighton in one of the Gavitt Tipoff Games.While the Badgers favor a disciplined, halfcourt type of game, the Bluejays like to get out and run, forcing teams to try to keep up with them in transition.Wisconsins philosophy has worked well, even last season when Greg Gard stepped in as head coach at midseason and led the Badgers to their fifth trip to the Sweet 16 in the past six years.The Badgers return all five starters from that team, including preseason Big Ten player of the year Nigel Hayes. Wisconsin (1-0) blew out Central Arkansas 79-47 in its opener.The Tipoff Games are an annual series between Big Ten and Big East conference teams and are named in honor Dave Gavitt, the founder of the Big East. This is the second year of an eight-year run for the event that is played during the first full week of the regular season.That level of success Wisconsin has enjoyed this decade is a standard the Bluejays are trying to reach. Creighton has missed the NCAA tournament the past two seasons and has not made it past the second round since 1974 when the Bluejays lost to Kansas in a regional semifinal.Junior guard Maurice Watson said this is the kind of game Creighton has been preparing for, to show this is the season the Bluejays can get past the round of 32.Basically Its just us testing our will and proving that were an elite team, Watson said. That we can hang with the teams that are in the top 10, top 15 in the country. Its about us going out there to prove to ourselves and our fans that we can hang at this level.Freshman center Justin Patton also is confident Creighton will be able to play a faster pace than Wisconsin prefers and get one of those coveted wins against a top 10 team.I just hope that as a team we can keep our composure and execute down the stretch, Patton said. If we just stay to our game plan, it will work out. Probably not early in the game, but late in the second half, things are going to start going our way. Were going to wear them down.Patton and Watson agree with Bluejays coach Greg McDermott that CenturyLink Center, the building that Creighton has turned into a formidable home court, will be the place to be in Omaha Tuesday night.McDermott can see the pros and cons of playing a game of this magnitude so early in the season.I think part of me would like a little more time to get ready for a test like this, McDermott said. On the other side of the coin, when you play good teams, and especially experienced teams, your weaknesses are exposed, so you have a chance to fix them early in the season.To play a team the quality of Wisconsin, with their experience and their veteran leadership, its great for our program and great for our fan base. This place will be rockin tomorrow.Watson is hopeful that the noise levels will rise because things are going Creightons way.They run their offense all the way through, Watson said. Everything moves at pace, theyre calculated. They kind of run through their bigs. They dont want to run like us.All we can do is play our game, and playing our game is going to make a lot of teams uncomfortable.Creighton (1-0) got past UMKC 89-82 in its opener. Sergio Busquets Jersey . No. 13-seeded John Isner and No. 21 Philipp Kohlschreiber were among six players who dropped out of the tournament on Tuesday, joining No. 12 seed Tommy Haas and two other players who withdrew on Monday. Jordi Alba Jersey . As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. http://www.fcbarcelonapro.com/Kids-Samuel-Umtiti-Jersey/ . PAUL, Minn. Thomas Vermaelen Jersey . -- Playing time has been limited for Maxim Tissot this season, so the Montreal Impact defender made the most of his first scoring opportunity on Saturday. Marc-Andre Ter Stegen Jersey . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Former top-10 player Kathy Rinaldi has been named the new U.S. Fed Cup captain. Currently a coach for the USTA Player Development, Rinaldi will also work more closely with the American players throughout the entire season.This is an unbelievable opportunity, and I am incredibly excited and honored to take on the position of U.S. Fed Cup captain, Rinaldi said in a statement to the USTA. I believe that my experiences as both a player and a coach have given me insight that will help me to succeed in this role and can assist in getting the U.S. Fed Cup team to the next level.In 1986, Rinaldi reached a career-high No. 7 in the world. A three-time singles champion on the WTA Tour, Rinaldi also reached the Wimbledon semifinals in 1985.Kathy brings a rare combination of skills to the Fed Cup captaincy, USTA chairman of the board and president Katrina Adams said in a statement. Kathy already commands the respect and confidence of the U.S. players. This coupled with her leadership experience and winning mentality makes her the ideal individual to ensure that the team is best composed, and best prepared to compete with whatever opponent is across the net.ddddddddddddn early October, Mary Joe Fernandez stepped down as the longtime captain. Fernandez, currently an ESPN tennis analyst, oversaw the U.S. team for eight seasons and led the squad to two finals, in 2009 and 2010. However, the team failed to make the top-tier World Group draw the past two seasons.I look forward to working closely with the players throughout the year as we move forward in our goal of bringing the Fed Cup back to the United States, Rinaldi said.Although the U.S. has a talented young core of players, including world No. 8 Madison Keys, the team has largely been without the Williams sisters in recent years. Serena Williams made an appearance last season and won both her singles matches against Italy. But it wasnt enough as the U.S. lost 3-2. Only once since the start of 2008 have both Serena and Venus Williams appeared together in Fed Cup.The U.S. will begin its 2017 Fed Cup quest Feb. 11-12 against Germany in Maui, Hawaii.
