Lexington, KY (SportsNetwork. Justin Abdelkader Jersey .com) - Kentucky shot 1-for-12 from 3-point range and was outrebounded 42-31 on its home floor. But Willie Cauley-Stein and the No. 1 Wildcats still found a way past sixth- ranked Texas, 63-51, in their first real test of the season. Cauley-Steins best game as a college player couldnt have come at a better time for the Wildcats, who struggled to score all night but got it done on the defensive end. The 7-footer was dominant on D while also posting a career-high 21 points. He finished with 12 rebounds, five steals and three blocked shots. Dakari Johnson scored 11 points, Karl-Anthony Towns netted 10, and Alex Poythress chipped in eight for the unbeaten Wildcats (8-0). Open looks were at a premium for Texas (7-1), which finished just 14-of-47 from the floor and 4-for-20 from behind the arc. Jonathan Holmes paced the Longhorns with 14 points and Demarcus Holland had 10 with a game-high five assists. After a balanced first half, Kentucky asserted its dominance out of the break. Trey Lyles and Johnson both scored a pair of field goals and Cauley-Stein made two free throws during a 10-0 run to open the second half. Prince Ibeh broke the seal for Texas with a dunk on a feed from Holland, but the Wildcats scored the next eight to build a comfortable 16-point lead. Cauley-Steins alley-oop in transition from Aaron Harrison, which accounted for the 39th and 40th points, nearly brought the roof off of Rupp Arena. Two Texas runs of 7-0 and 6-0 later in the half had the Longhorns within striking distance. It was 53-47 with under three minutes to go when Cauley-Stein intercepted an entry pass from Connor Lammert and Andrew Harrison hit Kentuckys first 3- pointer at the other end. In poetic fashion, Cauley-Stein put an exclamation mark on the win with another alley-oop from Andrew Harrison with less than a minute to play. He left the court to a rousing ovation moments later. The Longhorns turned it over seven times in the first eight minutes of the game, but they still led 10-9 at the second media timeout following Kendal Yancys putback layup. It was 20-14 when Kentucky finally got going. Towns drew a flagrant 1 foul on Holmes and made both free throws, then knocked down a jumper from the nail. Tyler Ulis scored in transition following Yancys missed jumper, and just like that, the game was tied. Out of a timeout, Cauley-Stein went to a righty jump hook to put Kentucky in front, 22-20. Texas then scored six of the next eight points and Cauley- Stein made another hook shot to send the two teams into halftime tied at 26. Game Notes This was Kentuckys lowest margin of victory this season ... Texas fell to 0-8 all-time against No. 1 ranked teams ... Kentucky forced 22 turnovers while coughing it up just eight times ... There were seven ties and eight lead changes. Paul Stastny USA Jersey .B. -- Canadas Rachel Homan had ideal preparation for the playoffs at the Ford World Curling Championships with a pair of hard-fought wins over tenacious opponents Thursday. Ryan Callahan Jersey . Dwyane Wade followed a few days later. http://www.hockeyteamusajerseystore.com/Customized/ . - Anthony Beauvillier had the winning goal in the third period as the Shawinigan Cataractes edged the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 2-1 on Wednesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League play.PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins put together a fast start Friday night, and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury took care of the rest. Fleury made 30 of his 37 saves over the final two periods, helping Pittsburgh hold on for a 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils. "We werent giving them much (at the beginning); I was getting a little lonely back there," said Fleury, who improved to 12-2 at home. "But they didnt quit. They kept coming out after us. It was nice to hold on and get the two points." Pascal Dupuis scored 41 seconds into the game, and Chris Conner and Jayson Megna also scored in the first for Metropolitan-leading Pittsburgh, which has won seven of eight. The Penguins also extended their home winning streak to seven games. Patrik Elias and Dainius Zubrus scored 56 seconds apart early in the second period, but New Jersey dropped to 1-4-1 in its past six. After Pittsburgh took a 3-0 lead into the first intermission, the Devils controlled the remainder of the game. But Fleury was sharp. Perhaps his best saves came on Steve Bernier -- twice, with a pad and then his stick while sprawling -- with 14:40 to play in regulation. Fleury then denied Damien Brunner on a partial breakaway minutes later. "Hes going to tell you its nice to be able to get a lot of shots and flurries and action at his net," Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said. "But I think hed just assumed not have grade-A chances on him at key points of the game - especially in the third period." The Penguins survived a frenzied final push by New Jersey, avoiding the fate of allowing a goal to an opponent that had its goalie pulled for the third game in a row. "We took our foot off the pedal in terms of how we played and how we executed with the puck," Bylsma said. "We were a little careless in how we managed the puck." Dupuis goal set the tone, coming off a misplay by Devils goaltender Cory Schneider. Chris Kunitz carried the puck into the zone and flipped a fluttering puck on net as he crossed the blue line. Schneider had trouble covering it, and Dupuis eventually poked it in for his fifth of the season. "Obviously, just an inexcusable goal," Schneider said. "That cant happen at this level. Its not fair to my teammates to put them dowwn 40 seconds into the game. Ryan Miller Jersey. " Conner then made it 2-0 at 7:55 when Brandon Sutter sprung him alone in the slot and he used a wrist shot beat Schneider for his second goal of the season. Megna, a rookie in the lineup only because of injuries and the suspension of winger James Neal, scored for the second time in four games -- his fourth overall -- with 5:20 to play in the first. But the Devils took 15 of the first 16 shots of the second period and had a 19-5 advantage in shots in the period overall. After the first intermission, New Jersey outshot Pittsburgh 32-11. "We were clearly the better team the last 40 minutes," Schneider said. "Fleury made some real big saves and was definitely, by far, the better goalie tonight." New Jersey got to Fleury twice. Elias scored 3:24 into the second after a failed Devils power play. Zubrus then pushed a fluttering puck that was sitting on the goal line into the net after a Jaromir Jagr shot deflected off Megnas leg, making it difficult for Fleury to handle. "The second and third we started moving our feet, and thats how we started creating some chances," Zubrus said. "Were a pretty good team - weve just got to get our minds into it from the start of the game and start skating right off the hop. When we do that, when we play 60 minutes, we can play against anybody." Fleury is second in the NHL in home wins and goals-against average, and third in save percentage at home. "After (the third goal), we didnt play the way we wanted," Megna said. "We need to play a complete game after that, and I think Flower made it stand up for us." NOTES: Penguins D Brooks Orpik skated briefly Friday morning. Orpik, who is still experiencing concussion symptoms, is not expected to return to game action anytime soon. He has not played since Bostons Shawn Thornton grabbed Orpik from behind, pulled him to the ground and punched him, knocking him unconscious. Thornton has been suspended indefinitely, and his hearing with the NHL was Friday. ... C Sidney Crosby earned an assist on Dupuis goal, extending his point streak to five games. ... The Penguins, who are 14-3 at home, have scored at least three goals in 14 of 17 games at Consol Energy Center. ... Elias has a five-game point streak.
