Air Max 2018 Outlet .Randle helped the 36ers overcome a fast-starting Breakers, who held a 10-point lead at quarter-time in the fixture in Adelaide.The brilliant Randle also had four assists and was well supported by teammates Mitch Creek (14 points, three steals), Daniel Johnson (15 points) and Nathan Sobey (12 points, six assists).The Breakers Kirk Penney was imposing with 25 points and Mike Vukona (16 points, five rebounds) and Akil Mitchell (12 points) were prominent but they couldnt prevent Adelaide banking a fourth consecutive victory.The Breakers, fresh from downing Brisbane on Thursday night to snap a four-game losing streak, stunned the 36ers parochial crowd with a powerful opening to hold a deserved 34-24 advantage at the first break.But the visitors lost momentum as Adelaide turned the screws defensively in the second stanza - with four-and-a-half minutes remaining in the period, the 36ers had snuck to the front.Randle was instrumental in Adelaides recovery, as was centre Eric Jacobsen who had seven rebounds for the half.The 36ers took a 49-47 advantage into halftime as the Breakers lamented a series of costly turnovers - a recurring theme recently for the New Zealanders.The Breakers tidied their efforts in the third quarter and held a four-point buffer midway through, only for the home side to surge again and take a 74-70 lead at the end of the period.Randle was again the linchpin of a strong final period by the 36ers, who boast seven wins and six losses this season, while the Breakers slip to a seven-nine win-loss record.Im proud of my team - its a team effort, Randle told Fox Sports.It has nothing to do with me individually - my team has been playing great on defence - and tonight was just my night.

The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. After consecutive storybook endings, North Carolina probably could use a little breather, but the Tar Heels are not going to get it.Florida State, the 37-35 victim last week on Nick Weilers 54-yard field goal as time ran out, was just the first of a three-game stretch that likely will determine the postseason fate for the Heels, who have won four in a row since dropping their opener to Georgia.Next up: Virginia Tech on Saturday, the only home date for the Heels in the month of October. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill.First-year coach Justin Fuentes Hokies have recovered from a big loss to Tennessee in Bristol and have won their last two game to improve to 3-1 on the season overall and 1-0 in ACC play. They were idle last week as the Tar Heels improved to 2-0 in league play.They look really good on film right now, said Carolina coach Larry Fedora, whose team scored with two seconds left to get by Pittsburgh 37-36 in its league opener a week before knocking off the Seminoles. Maybe even more than I expected since I havent had a chance before now to see them.Theyre playing great football, and I can see why their sitting in the position theyre in right now, ranked in the Top 25.Both the Hokies and the Tar Heels jumped into this weeks poll with the Heels, who were No. 22 in the preseason but dropped out after the loss to the Bulldogs, at No. 17 and the Hokies at No. 25.Coach Fuente has brought a high-powered offense in that has made them extremely explosive, Fedora said, singling out quarterback Jerod Evans for his play. Their quarterback is somebody that can beat you with his legs and his arm.And then you have Bud Foster there dialing it up on the defense. He will make sure they are good on defense.Evans is the teams No. 2 rusher 209 yards to running back Travon McMillians 212 and is passing for an average of 241 yards a game. That works out to an average of over 290 yards a game in total offense for the junior transfer from Trinity Valley (Texas) Commmunity College.

That goes right at the strength of a North Carolina offense that has averaged 342 yards a game passing behind junior quarterback Mitch Trubisky (76.0 completion percentage and no interceptions in his last 240 pass attempts going back to 2014) and a talented and deep receiving corps.Senior wide receiver Ryan Switzer has a team-high 47 catches for the season, but he has plenty of support from junior Austin Proehl (19 receptions, 269 yards) and seniors Bug Howard (18-261) and Mack Hollins (13-252).Tech doesnt have that kind of depth at receiver but still has experienced a resurgence on offense since behind held to under 400 yards in total offense in the loss to Tennessee. The Hokies recorded a season high 476 yards rushing and passing against a well-regarded Boston College defense and came back with 462 in a win over East Carolina.Like a Krispy Kreme doughnut with the Hot sign on, Hokies wide receiver Cam Phillips said when asked what its been like to be a part of the red-hot offense.This will be Techs first game as a ranked team against a ranked opponent since No. 13 Michigan beat the 17th ranked Hokies in overtime in the 2012 Sugar Bowl.Techs last contest as a ranked team came on Sept. 13, 2014.
