FORT WORTH, Texas -- When TCUs lead was cut to one soon after halftime, the Horned Frogs ran a pair of set plays. Wholesale Blue Jays Jerseys . Brandon Parrish hit 3-pointers both times.Parrish scored 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting in his first start of the season, including those big 3s in a 35-second span as the Horned Frogs went on to a 79-60 victory over Jacksonville State on Friday night. They improved to 3-0 under new coach Jamie Dixon.It was a big momentum shift in the game, coach called the right play, and we executed really well, Parrish said. My guys got me the ball in open areas, and I just shot it with confidence.The only player to start every TCU game last season, Parrish had come off the bench the first two games. The 6-foot-6 senior started against Jacksonville State (1-3) while second-leading scorer JD Miller served a one-game suspension for violation of team rules. Dixon said Miller would be back for the next game.Freshman guard Desmond Bane has been in double figures in all three games for TCU after scoring 14 points. Alex Robinson, the former Texas A&M transfer who had to sit out last season, had 10 points and five assists.Malcolm Drumwright led the Gamecocks with 19 points. Norbertas Giga and Erik Durham each had 11 points and eight rebounds.After Jacksonville State cut the gap to 36-35 right after halftime, Parrish had the consecutive 3-pointers. The first was from the left side in front of the TCU bench, and then he hit from the right corner.His attitude, his energy -- if he was back next year, Id have him run for student body president, Dixon said. It would be good.BIG PICTUREJacksonville State: The Gamecocks and first-year coach Ray Harper are piling up the miles together. This was their fourth consecutive road game to start the season. They will play 15 of their first 16 games away from their Alabama campus.TCU: The Horned Frogs are coming together under coach Jamie Dixon, with a mix of veteran players and talented freshmen. The return of Kenrich Williams is a boost, as he was the teams top rebounder as a sophomore two years ago before microfracture knee surgery. In his first game since the 2015 Big 12 tournament, he had nine points in 20 minutes.BUILDING TRUSTParrish said the biggest thing being stressed by Dixon is playing together. We can build trust amongst each other, so when were out there on the court, we can hold each other accountable and we can trust each other to be in the right spot and doing the right things, Parrish said. Were going to be a better team overall.BETTER THAN HALF WITH FEW GIVEAWAYSTCU shot 50 percent overall (28 of 56) and was just slightly better on 3-pointers by hitting 52 percent (11 of 21). Along with the good shooting, the Frogs had only eight turnovers.UP NEXTJacksonville State plays its first home game under Harper on Tuesday night against Dalton State College, their only game at home until Jan. 5.TCU wraps up its season-opening four-game homestand Monday against Illinois State before going to Las Vegas for two games. Those are the only games the Frogs will play out of Texas before Big 12 Conference play begins.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Luke Maile Blue Jays Jersey . - NASCAR announced a 33-race schedule for the 2014 Nationwide Series with virtually no changes from this years slate. Shawn Green Blue Jays Jersey . -- Jaye Marie Green shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday to increase her lead to five strokes after the second round of the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament. https:///...ersey-blue-jays.html . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. And then there were four.No Hawthorn, no West Coast, no Fremantle, no North Melbourne. For the first time since 2007, all four preliminary finalists are different from the previous year. But while the cards have fallen differently in 2016, there is still an enormous amount of intrigue ahead of the AFLs penultimate week of the season.This years two preliminary finals -- while both tantalising for spectators -- could not be more contrasting.Geelong vs. SydneySydney and Geelong will both feel the pressure for various reasons when they take to the MCG on Friday night. One of these 21st century powerhouses will again fail to secure a place on the AFLs grandest stage in what will likely be labelled another failed year.The Cats aggressive off-season recruitment means the spotlight will be shining brightly on Chris Scott and the clubs brains trust. The high-profile and much acclaimed acquisition of superstar onballer Patrick Dangerfield has bolstered their midfield stocks enormously, but after paying so much to lure him away from the Crows -- not to mention the additions of Zac Smith, Lachie Henderson and Scott Selwood -- success will be expected sooner rather than later.Without question, the Cats loaded up for another premiership on the back of their incredible era of success in the noughties, and anything less will be deemed a failure.If they crash out this weekend, questions will abound.What do they do with ageing superstars Corey Enright, Tom Lonergan, Jimmy Bartel, Andrew Mackie and Harry Taylor, who are all over 30?Do they have enough young talent on their list? The Cats do have some promising youngsters, but not to the same degree as many of their rivals. To make matters worse, their first pick in the 2016 draft is a lowly No. 38. Master recruiting manager Stephen Wells will have to work his magic, yet again, to ensure the Cats dont drop away.Even the most optimistic Cats fan would acknowledge they must strike now to justify their all in approach during the last player exchange period.The Swans, meanwhile, are also under pressure on myriad fronts. Injuries to key personnel have come at the worst possible time, while they also have to travel to the MCG -- admittedly, a happy hunting ground for them -- for the preliminary final off the back of a six-day break.However, their decision almost three years ago to sign Lance Franklin on a $10m, nine-year deal once again has the spotlight firmly fixed on the Harbour City club.Rightly or wrongly, the Swans are viewed as needing to justify Franklins staggering contract with silverware, and a loss to Geelong will mean three seasons have come and gone without any since the former Hawk made the move north.Franklin missed last years finals campaign with mental health isssues, but hes back and in arguably career-best form this season and could almost single-handedly lead his team towards premiership glory. Blue Jays Jerseys China. But if not, watch the cynics line up to state -- with Franklin only a few months away from hitting a footballers dreaded age of 30 -- that time is running out to strike during the Buddy era.GWS vs. Western BulldogsThe second preliminary final could not be more different.Its too much to claim Saturdays clash at Spotless Stadium is a free hit for the Bulldogs and Giants, but both clubs are under far less pressure than the two teams that will be do battle at the MCG a day earlier.Why?Because both clubs have arrived earlier than expected.Many football experts and fans would have predicted these two sides, particularly the Giants, had the ability to challenge for the premiership over the next two, four or even eight years. So if they fall one or two hurdles short this season, all would not be lost as they should be set for a sustained period of success.Looking at GWS, its perhaps no surprise they are only two wins away from a first premiership trophy.The Giants list is the envy of the competition. Having feasted on 17 top-10 draft picks since 2011 -- the next most in that time is Melbourne with six, while four clubs (the Hawks, Crows, Dockers and Eagles) havent had a single top-10 pick during the same timeframe -- they were always going to rocket up the ladder and smash through the premiership window at some stage. To be on the brink of a premiership in their maiden finals campaign shows just why their rival clubs are worried about an imminent period of domination.The Dogs ability to nail their early and late draft picks, as well as rookie selections, in the past few years also has them set up to be a long-term contender.Under Luke Beveridge, the Bulldogs are tough, hungry and, perhaps most importantly, young. The side that stunned Hawthorn only had a combined 1,899 matches of experience -- exactly 1,500 less than the finals-hardened Hawks.The Dogs are also resilient. The Bulldogs have somehow overcome a seemingly endless amount of injuries, defying enormous adversity throughout the season. For a young side to make the top four after being without their inspirational captain for almost the entire year is testament to Luke Beveridge and the playing group.Whether they win or lose on Saturday, the future is still blindingly bright at Whitten Oval.Extreme pressure is a constant companion during any final. But the pressure gauge is likely to be cranked up an extra notch or two when the Swans and Cats clash for a place in the grand final. ' ' '
