LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Not much went wrong for No. 8 Louisville on Wednesday night as it caught a dangerous foe at a vulnerable time.Jazmine Jones scored a career-high 15 points to lead the Cardinals to a dominating 83-30 victory over South Dakota State.The Cardinals (9-2) extended their winning streak to three games thanks to a strong start and finish to the first half. Louisville scored the games first 11 points and then finished the first half on a 15-0 run to take a 38-14 lead.Jones played a big role in getting the huge lead as she scored 12 points on 5-of-5 shooting in the first half, easily surpassing her previous high of eight points against Chattanooga on Nov. 21.Itll definitely boost my confidence as we go along this season, Jones said.South Dakota State (8-3), which announced Wednesday that Macy Miller would miss the rest of the season, struggled without their leading scorer. The Jackrabbits committed a season-worst 30 turnovers and shot 19.6 percent from the field.Even without Miller, Louisville coach Jeff Walz said he told his team to not let the Jackrabbits dictate the pace. The Cardinals responded, he said, by playing their best defense all season.I was just really, really pleased with our physical and mental effort tonight, he said.Kerri Youngs 13 points led South Dakota State.Jackrabbits coach Aaron Johnston said the biggest enemy his team has had since Millers leg injury, which she suffered last Friday against Green Bay, has been time. Louisville marked the second game South Dakota State has played in less than a week and the team has also had finals to take.Weve had about three hours in the gym to redefine a lot of roles, he said.Myisha Hines-Allen and Sydney Zambrotta added 10 points each for Louisville.BIG PICTURESouth Dakota State: Granted the Jackrabbits played one of the top teams in the country, but they seemed lost for major stretches of the game. Some of that could be due to missing Miller. Since she went out on Friday, the Jackrabbits have yet to shoot better than 33 percent from the field.Louisville: What was considered a possible upset threat at the beginning of the season turned into a laugher early against the short-handed Jackrabbits. While the Cardinals struggled for a stretch in the first half, they still put on an impressive display against one of the top mid-major programs in Division I.STAT OF THE NIGHTLouisville entered Wednesday having held opponents to single-digit scoring quarters six times this season. On Wednesday, they added three more to that total, with the Jackrabbits getting 11 points in the third quarter. When you factor in the fourth quarter against Western Kentucky, the Cardinals have had four such periods in the past five quarters.INJURIESIn announcing Millers status, school officials said the junior guard, who was averaging 14.9 points a game, would seek a medical redshirt for this season.POLL IMPLICATIONSBeating a team like South Dakota State, which Walz said will still likely pile up victories even with Millers absence, will only serve to boost Louisvilles profile among voters. In the last 10 days, Louisville has registered solid victories over Kentucky, Western Kentucky and the Jackrabbits, all teams which figure to be in the running for tournament bids come March.UP NEXTSouth Dakota State returns home to face Bowling Green on Sunday, a team Louisville beat 83-58 on Nov. 19.Louisville hosts Charleston on Friday in the fifth of six straight home games.

NORMAN, Okla. -- In 2008, the Big 12 had unmatched star power.Four of the top five finishers in the Heisman race hailed from the conference, including the winner, Oklahomas Sam Bradford. Texas Colt McCoy was second, Texas Techs Graham Harrell was fourth and his teammate, Michael Crabtree, was fifth. Since then, the league has consistently produced top contenders for the award, with Baylors Robert Griffin III winning in 2011.This year, the conference will be lucky to land anyone in the top 10.Oklahomas Baker Mayfield, the Big 12s top contender heading into the season, finished fourth last year. He had a chance to make himself a front-runner this year, but struggled in losses to Houston and Ohio State.I believe Baker will shine for us as we go through the year, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. I really believe that. The guys works too hard not to. Like everybody, hell learn from these games and not press too much.Mayfield is among the Big 12 quarterbacks who will bring some excitement to the league, even though they wont have last years stage, when Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU and Baylor were in the running for a spot in the College Football Playoff. This year, the highest-ranked team is No. 16 Baylor . Texas is No. 21 and Oklahoma is No. 25.Baylors Seth Russell might have the best shot at being a Heisman finalist. He was in the conversation last year before he suffered a season-ending neck injury. Now, hes back, and the Bears are unbeaten. He hasnt put up numbers like last year, but that could change in conference play. Baylor hosts Oklahoma State on Saturday.Oklahoma States Mason Rudolph, a big, pro-style quarterback, passed for 540 yards last week in a win over Pittsburgh. The biggest strike against him? That loss to Central Michigan that came after the Chippewas were incorrectly awarded an untimed down.Texas Techs Patrick Mahomes leads the nation with nearly 500 yards passing per game heading into his conference opener Sept. 29 against Kansas. The striike against him is that the big numbers have come in wins over Stephen F.dddddddddddd. Austin and Louisiana Tech, and in a loss to Arizona State.Kansas coach David Beaty believes Mahomes is a special player.Hes really good, Beaty said. Hes very talented. Hes big. Hes hard to tackle. Hes very well-coached. Hes got a ridiculous arm. He can throw it from anywhere, and he breaks rules because hell throw it to the wrong guy and hell still put it in there.TCUs Kenny Hill has put up big numbers, too, but the Horned Frogs lost to Arkansas, and what appeared to be a chance to make a splash against Oklahoma on Oct. 1 isnt what it could have been because of the Sooners slow start.The receiver position doesnt have quite the star power as last year, either. Baylors Corey Coleman, TCUs Josh Doctson, Oklahomas Sterling Shepard and Texas Techs Jakeem Grant are all in the NFL. This year, the leagues most explosive receiver is probably Oklahoma States James Washington. He caught nine passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns against Pittsburgh and was the conferences offensive player of the week. Baylors KD Cannon is also a standout.The running back position is unusually weak, at least statistically. The leagues leading rusher, Texas DOnta Foreman, has 288 yards in two games. After that, there is a significant drop off. West Virginias Rushel Shell is second with 87 yards per game. That would have been eighth in the conference at the end of last season.Samaje Perine, one of Oklahomas all-time leading rushers, has pounded out just 149 yards in the first three games, and is actually second on the team in rushing behind Joe Mixon. Iowa States Mike Warren, a preseason all-conference pick, is averaging 51 yards per game and 3.6 yards per carry. Baylors Shock Linwood has just 213 yards through three games.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter (at)CliffBruntAP Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
