NEWPORT, Wales -- Sir Bradley Wiggins has backed Chris Froome to emulate his achievement and add Olympic gold to his historic Tour de France title.Wiggins became one of the stars of London 2012 when he won gold in the mens time trial, just 10 days after becoming the first Briton to triumph in the Tour, cyclings most prestigious road race.Froome, who won time trial bronze in London, crossed the finish line in Paris last Sunday to seal a British-record third Tour de France title. He next flies to Rio with a chance to better Wiggins haul as he competes in the mens road race and time trial.With the road race just a day after the opening ceremony on August 5, Wiggins revealed the tight turnaround and change in timezones will make for challenging conditions for Froome, but he backed his compatriot to handle the pressure.Its probably harder for him this time, having to travel out to a completely different continent, Wiggins said at a Team GB press conference. We came back home, so its probably more challenging for Chris.He can do it, definitely. The way he won the Tour, theres no question of whether that forms going to go anywhere over two weeks. Without a doubt, if anyone can do it, he can.Wiggins will be in Rio as part of Team GBs track efforts, leading the charge in the mens team pursuit, and the 36-year-old revealed the transition from Grand Tour to Olympic racing is unlikely to faze Froome.I didnt find it that difficult, Wiggins said of the switch. Youre in the zone, going through the motions of road racing. That  Tour in particular, I got stronger in the third week and won that last time trial.I knew that, because I won that last time trial by a minute and a half, all I had to do was keep my head on and do the same performance. From the power I had that day, I knew nothing was going to change in 10 days.There werent too many challenges for me to overcome, other than I couldnt get down my lane when I went home for a couple of days.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- John Collins sure liked the statistics next to his name in the first game of his second season for Wake Forest.?? The sophomore forward had career highs of 18 points and 12 rebounds as the Demon Deacons defeated Radford 80-59 in the season opener Friday night.?? I feel I came out with a solid start to my sophomore campaign, Collins said. Statistically, it says it is my best game.?? Devin Thomas was a four-year player for Wake Forest and often helped control the lane. He has moved on, so Collins said he understands the importance of picking up the slack.?? Theres no DT any more to get those tenacious rebounds, Collins said. Somebody needs to fill that void.?? Collins, who made 7 of 11 shots from the field, had plenty of help. Keyshawn Woods scored nine points in the first 12 minutes of the second half on his way to 14 points in his Wake Forest debut.?? Bryant Crawford also added 14 points and eight assists for the Demon Deacons, though he went down with what he later described as a foot cramp after a dunk with less than two minutes to play.?? Wake Forest shot 62.5 percent from the field in the second half. At the other end, the Demon Deacons racked up 10 blocked shots, contributing to Radfords 35.8-percent shooting from the field.?? I thought we played hard enough to win the game for the majority of the game, Radford coach Mike Jones said. As the game wore on, I thought their size really affected us. I thought it took a toll on us in the second half. I thought we got a little tired.?? Ed Polite Jr. paced Radford with 11 points.??? Woods, a redshirt sophomore who sat out last season after transferring from Charlotte, scored all but three of his points in the second half. He made consecutive jumpers as part of aa personal 5-0 run as the Demon Deacons built a 56-39 edge.dddddddddddd??? Wake Forest coach Danny Manning liked what Woods provided.?? Hes kind of a jack-of-all-trades for us, Manning said. Were very happy that hes out there on the court with us.?? Wake Forest held several 11-point leads in the first half, but led 36-28 at the break.?? Still there were moments in the game we could have put them away earlier, Crawford said.? The Demon Deacons came into the season touting improved perimeter shooting and the games first basket was a 3-pointer by graduate transfer Austin Arians. But by the end of the half, they were 3 of 12 on 3s.?? Radford sputtered offensively early, shooting 2-for-15 from the field in the first 10 1/2 minutes.?? We were not in sync. They disrupted our flow, Jones said. We got some good looks and didnt capitalize and I think a lot of that was their defense.?BIG PICTURERadford: The Highlanders had seven seniors on last years team, leaving only fourth-year junior guard Justin Cousin and sophomore forward Ed Polite Jr. as primary returners.
