LAWRENCE, Kan. [url=http://www.pascheryeezy350v2.fr/fausse-yeezy-350-v2-sesame.html]Yeezy 350 V2 Sesame Pas Cher[/url] . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. His career wasnt even a minute old and the Brampton, Ont., native was already leaving his mark on Kansas. While Wiggins disappeared at times, the highly touted freshman dazzled at others, finishing with 16 points in leading the fifth-ranked Jayhawks to an 80-63 victory over Louisiana-Monroe on Friday night. "He did some good things," Jayhawks coach Bill Self said. "I think he can be more aggressive, but I think all the guys can be more aggressive." Aggressive may not have been such a good thing on this night, though. New rules designed to clamp down on hand-checking resulted in 58 fouls and a slew of free throws. It also resulted in a herky-jerky affair for both sides. "Im telling them not to freak out. Thats what Im telling them," Warhawks coach Keith Richard said. "The players have to adjust and not lose their minds. Its not going away, and so its difficult. It sure is. And there were some bad calls tonight, pitiful, but both ways." Andrew White III and Perry Ellis finished 12 points each for the youthful Jayhawks, who wont have a whole lot of time for all their freshmen to work out the kinks. Kansas, which is replacing all five starters from last season, plays No. 4 Duke on Tuesday night in Chicago. "Its going to be a pretty good matchup, two high-profile teams," White said, "but were not paying too much attention to the hype thats out there." Marvin Williams had 19 points and six rebounds to lead the Warhawks, who sure didnt look like a team that won just four games last season. They trailed 47-41 early in the second half before the quicker more physical Jayhawks finally went on a 15-5 run to seize control. Williams fouled out with 8:16 left in the game, and Louisiana-Monroe struggled the rest of the way as Wiggins and Co. made the final score appear much more comfortable. "Obviously we want to come out and win bigger than we did, and finish the game off stronger, but were still fresh," senior transfer Tarik Black said. "Were still learning each other." The Jayhawks started three freshmen in Wiggins, Selden and Frank Mason, who got the nod at point guard with junior Naadir Tharpe serving a one-game suspension for playing in an unauthorized summer league game. Black also was in the starting lineup after arriving from Memphis. That left Perry Ellis as the only holdover from last season in the starting five. Still, the unknown of all the fresh faces resulted in the same kind of energy inside Allen Fieldhouse that has accompanied just about every other home opener -- Kansas has won 42 of them in a row. Students waited in lines hours before the doors opened before rushing to their seats. All that fervour quickly subsided when it became apparent how far Kansas has to go. Consecutive dunks by Williams in the first half, the second one after a turnover by Wiggins at the other end, gave the Warhawks a 15-13 lead and forced the Jayhawks to call a timeout. "I definitely felt like we were in the game," Williams said. Making waves of substitutions, Kansas methodically regained the lead, and then pulled away on a jumper by Brannen Greene and a parade of free throws. But it was still just 42-32 at halftime, and Selfs jaw was clenched as he followed his team to the locker room. He wasnt any happier early in the second half, when the Warhawks had closed to within 47-41 and Mason was whistled for a foul on a loose ball. Self stomped up the sideline, his face red in fury, and screamed at the officials while the crowd roared their disapproval. Asked whether he was surprised that he didnt get called for a technical foul, Self replied: "I would say that would be an accurate observation. Yeah, probably so." His impassioned tirade finally woke the Jayhawks from their slumber. Black scored moments later to kick off a 15-5 spurt that allowed Kansas to seize control. Wiggins coasted to the rim for two layups during the run, and White knocked down a 3-pointer off a feed from Connor Frankamp, then converted a conventional three-point player. Louisiana-Monroe got into foul trouble down the stretch -- Tylor Ongwae picked up his fifth with 14:40 to go, and Williams picked up his fifth 6 minutes later. The Jayhawks took advantage of the Warhawks lack of depth to put the game away. "Its an entire team of younguns, and its going to be frustrating from time to time," Self said, "but hopefully it will be very rewarding at the end."

Now he has a complete game. Scherzer tossed a three-hitter in his 179th career start for his first complete game and Victor Martinez hit his 16th homer to lead the Detroit Tigers a 4-0 win over the Chicago White Sox.

The $145.7-million Tim Hortons Field was slated to open this month, a year before it was to host all 32 mens and womens soccer competitions. The delay has forced the Hamilton Tiger-Cats football team to use a smaller facility for the first two home games of the season.LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jordan Farmar has been waived by the Los Angeles Clippers after 36 games. The 28-year-old guard was averaging 4.6 points, 1.9 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 14.7 minutes as the backup to Chris Paul. The move announced Friday creates roster room for the deal the Clippers made Thursday to bring guard Austin Rivers, the 22-year-old son of coach Doc Rivers, to play under his father. Farmar signed with the Clippers in July as a replacement for fellow UCLA alum Daarren Collison, who chose to leave and sign with Sacramento.

He won NBA titles in 2009 and 2010 with the Lakers, who drafted him in 2006. Farmar was bothered by a torn left hamstring and a strained right groin that cost him half of last season. The Clippers are reportedly going to pursue guard Nate Robinson, who was acquired by Boston from Denver earlier this week. ' ' '
