MINNEAPOLIS -- Richard Pitino wants to make sure his players arent reading too much into their 6-0 record.After impressive wins against St. Johns and Arkansas, some Minnesota players said they expected an easier time against mid-major Southern Illinois.You cant overlook anybody; we cant do that, Pitino said Saturday night after his Gophers beat Southern Illinois 57-45. We should be a no-ego program. We have not earned the right to have an ego.Amir Coffey had 13 points, Nate Mason and Dupree McBrayer each scored 11 against the scrappy Salukis, who never led in the second half but always seemed within striking distance.With upcoming games against Florida State and Vanderbilt in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge next week, the Gophers acknowledged they may have gotten ahead of themselves.Came out flat, thinking it was going to be an easy game, McBrayer said. So weve just got to have the mindset that every game is going to be like a Big Ten game, or a Big Ten feel.The Gophers (6-0) won despite missing starting center Reggie Lynch, who sat with an ankle injury. Even without the 6-foot-10 Lynch -- whos averaging nine points and 3.6 blocks per game -- the Gophers size advantage ground down a Salukis team that entered the game averaging 81 points per game.Minnesotas much taller backcourt held Mike Rodriguez -- SIUs leading scorer -- to seven points, half his season average. Thik Bol led The Salukis (3-3) with 15 points, but no other Southern Illinois player had more than seven.This game tonight was two ends of the spectrum, Salukis coach Barry Hinson said. We played phenomenal defense and then we played, I wouldnt say bad offense, but we just didnt produce when the shots were there.Southern Illinois led by four in the first half before hitting an eight-minute scoring drought. The Gophers took advantage, ripping off a 12-0 run that put them in front for good.BIG PICTURESouthern Illinois: The Salukis, who didnt lose their third game last season until Jan. 9 against Wichita State, had their three-game winning streak snapped and are 0-2 against major-conference teams this season. They lost to Arkansas by 25 earlier this month, and will have at least one more chance to beat a major team this year at Louisville on Dec. 7.Minnesota: The Gophers are 6-0 for the first time since the 2011-12 season. All six games, though, have come at home; it marks the first time since 1999 that Minnesota has opened with six straight home games. They went 6-0 that year, too.FREE-THROW WOESMinnesota made a season-low 12 free throws on 22 attempts, which played a big part in allowing Southern Illinois to hang around.You know what happens, you miss a couple and then all of a sudden everybody gets a little tight, Pitino said.SILVER DEFENSIVE LININGSHinson called the game Southern Illinois best defensive performance of the young season. We just held a Big Ten team to 18 percent from the 3 and 38 percent for the game and we are the first team to do that in their six games. We are the first team to hold them under 80 points, Hinson said.UP NEXTSouthern Illinois will host Murray State next Tuesday; the Racers will try to snap a two-game skid Saturday against Alabama A&M.Minnesota travels for the first time this season to face Florida State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. It gets a lot tougher now going on the road, so well see how we look with more adversity I guess, Pitino said. Adidas España Outlet .

Comprar Zapatillas Adidas Baratas . LOUIS -- St. LOS ANGELES -- Although the Buffalo Bills three-game winning streak is equal parts exciting and improbable, LeSean McCoy sees ways it can get even better.McCoy shredded the Los Angeles Rams defense for 8.3 yards per carry on the way to 150 yards rushing in the Bills 30-19 victory Sunday -- and he still wasnt impressed.There were some plays I missed today, McCoy said. I could have easily had over 200 yards.Thats a bold statement against a defensive team as good as the Rams (3-2), who were missing three injured starters on their vaunted defensive line. But after the Bills (3-2) turned an 0-2 start into an above-.500 record with three impressive victories, they could be excused for feeling good about themselves.Its just a gratifying moment, and we know weve got a ton of work in front of us, Bills coach Rex Ryan said.The Bills handled their first game in the Coliseum since 1992 rather comfortably, thanks to an opportunistic defense that forced three turnovers and a grinding offense that managed only 305 yards but found holes in the Rams solid scheme.Tyrod Taylor threw two touchdown passes, scrambling to find newcomer Justin Hunter in the first quarter and finding Marquise Goodwin in the fourth after Nickell Robey-Colemans second interception.Robey-Coleman returned his first interception 41 yards for the tiebreaking touchdown in the third quarter, punctuating the Buffalo defenses effort against Los Angeles inconsistent offense.Case Keenum passed for 271 yards, while Todd Gurley scored the Rams first home touchdown of the season while rushing for 72 yards. Los Angeles couldnt build on its three-game winning streak with back-to-back road games in Detroit and London coming up.Weve got to score in that red zone, said Tavon Austin, who had seven catches for 59 yards while rushing for 26 more. We keep getting down there, but not scoring in the red zone. Three points is good, but three points is not going to win too many big games.Here are some other takeaways from the game:LOUSY FAKE: Trailing 23-19 and desperate for a late-game spark, the Rams faked a punt from their own 23 with 3:47 to play. The Bills sniffed it out perfectly, tackling Bradley Marquez 3 yards short of the first dowwn.ddddddddddddThanks to a 24-yard run by McCoy and a TD pass by Taylor, Buffalo essentially put the game out of reach moments later. Ryan credited the decisive play to the Bills special teams coaching staff, saying Danny Crossman, Eric Smith and Kathryn Smith were preparing special teams for that exact play, so we were ready for it.DEFENSIVE BLOWS: The Rams began the game without starting defensive linemen Robert Quinn, William Hayes and Michael Brockers, allowing the Bills to gang up on star lineman Aaron Donald in their blocking. Theyre all willing, but were looking at the long haul right now, coach Jeff Fisher said. And they wouldnt have been productive. In the fourth quarter, Los Angeles lost standout cornerback Trumaine Johnson to a right ankle injury that had him on crutches after the game. If Johnson or the linemen remain out for a prolonged stretch, the Rams greatest strength will be compromised. Fisher expects to know more about Johnsons injury Monday.GRINDING HALT: Gurley scored a touchdown and had his second-biggest rushing game of the season with 72 yards, including a 16-yard run and a 12-yard run. But the standout second-year pro still has only 288 yards in five games. He also fumbled twice, losing one. The Rams still cant get their most dangerous offensive player going.HOMECOMING GAME: Robey-Coleman was named a Bills captain for the game along with Reggie Bush, Robert Woods and Kevon Seymour. The reason? Theyre all USC Trojans returning to their home stadium. We could have let distractions get to us, Robey-Coleman said. We came out here with a mindset to get a victory and thats what happened.BIG SACK: Buffalo linebacker Lorenzo Alexander had two sacks, putting him into the NFL lead in the category. Hes the first Bills player to get part of a sack in five consecutive games since Mario Williams in 2013. Alexander was more excited about the Bills takeaways. Thats what we pride ourselves on defense, he said. Our core principle is to take the ball away and score on defense.---AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
