FORT WORTH, Texas -- Vaughan, Ont. Bryce Love Redskins Jersey ., native Andrew Wiggins wasnt around a year ago for one of the worst nights in Kansas basketball history. The freshman guard heard stories from coach Bill Self, and took it upon himself to squash any TCU hopes of a repeat. Wiggins scored 19 of his career-high 27 points in the first half and No. 8 Kansas answered last years stunning loss by taking control early in a 91-69 victory over the Horned Frogs on Saturday night. "He let everyone know that they beat us last year so we had to come out with a lot of energy, come with aggression," Wiggins said. "I think we were concentrating and we played with a high level of energy." The Jayhawks (15-4, 6-0 Big 12) won their sixth straight game and remained the only Big 12 team without a league loss. Kansas didnt get to extend its run of wins in four straight games against ranked opponents, the first team to do that since North Carolina in 1996-97. In their visit to Fort Worth last year, the Jayhawks became the first top-five team to lose to the Horned Frogs in a 62-55 defeat. This time, Kansas had 53 points at halftime and led by as many as 24 in the first half. "It was better, a lot better," said Self, who joked a year ago that it was "the worst team that Kansas ever put on the floor, since Dr. Naismith was there" after the Jayhawks scored 13 points in the first half. Brandon Parrish scored 15 points to lead TCU (9-10, 0-7). The Horned Frogs are the only conference team without a league win and are 2-23 in their two Big 12 seasons. TCU coach Trent Johnson simply saw what he called a "really good" Kansas team, not one fired up to make amends for the shocker of a season ago. "Why would they get all fired up about what?" Johnson said. "You talk about Kansas basketball and were just trying to make this team relevant. We havent been to the post-season since the dinosaurs. So I dont think they get all worked up over something like that." Joel Embiid had 14 points, six rebounds and three blocked shots for Kansas before fouling out for the fourth time this season. Wayne Selden Jr. scored 12, and Perry Ellis had eight points and 14 rebounds. TCUs student section flashed last years score in huge block numbers before the opening tip in case the Jayhawks had forgotten, but Wiggins was hardly fazed. The top-scoring freshman in the Big 12 made his first three shots and had a pair of 3-pointers and an alley-oop dunk from Selden in the first half. Wiggins topped his previous career best of 25 points against Florida on Dec. 10 and led Kansas with five assists. "He can defer a little bit and he can kind of get lost, but he never got lost today," Self said. "He was able to put his handprint all over the possessions and create opportunities for himself and others. I thought he played the way he should play every game." Wiggins also made it easier for the Jayhawks to exploit their size advantage inside. Jamari Traylor and Embiid had back-to-back dunks to put the Jayhawks up 14-6, surpassing their halftime total of 13 points from last year just 4 1/2 minutes into the game. Kansas, which shot a season-low 30 per cent in last years loss, was at 62 per cent in the first half, which ended with the Jayhawks in front by 21. The Jayhawks shot 57 per cent for the game. Conner Frankamp and Wiggins hit consecutive 3-pointers to finish a 13-2 run that put Kansas up 43-22. Embiid, a 7-footer from Cameroon, showed some versatility, beating Amric Fields with a strong spin move for a layup shortly before getting a steal, dribbling the length of the floor and getting fouled driving for a layup. He made both free throws for Kansas biggest first-half lead at 51-27. "Hes a good player," said TCU freshman centre Karviar Shepherd, who had eight points and fouled out trying to stay with Embiid. "We attacked each other on the offensive end and the defensive end. I got in some foul trouble early and he got the best of me." Fields had 13 points and seven rebounds for the Horned Frogs, who shot 56 per cent in the second half to keep the game from getting completely out of hand. Kyan Anderson added 12 points and eight assists. Charley Taylor Youth Jersey .

Smiths former Atlanta teammates were glad to hang on for an ugly win. MIAMI -- Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez heard a teammate yell and realized he had been caught by surprise. Desperate for a run, the Tampa Bay Rays were attempting a delayed steal. So Alvarez wheeled toward second base and threw yet another strike. The right-hander had good command all night long, needing only 88 pitches to toss an eight-hitter for his third shutout this year. He beat Tampa Bay 1-0 on Tuesday, sending the reeling Rays home after a winless eight-game trip. "Henderson took that game over," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. "That was fun to watch." The only run scored when Christian Yelich walked on a 3-2 slider with two out and the bases loaded in the fifth inning. Alvarez (3-3) struck out five and walked none in his third consecutive scoreless outing, a stretch covering 19 innings. He retired his last five batters to close out the win in 2 hours, 10 minutes. "My sinker was working, and thankfully the batters were swinging early," Alvarez said through a translator. "That determines the brevity of the game. I was attacking the strike zone, and they were attacking as well." Alvarezs three shutouts lead the majors. He had been 0-5 in five previous career starts against the Rays, but this time he faced a team in a miserable slump. Kevin Kiermaier had the Rays only extra-base hit when he tripled with two out in the third. They went 0 for 3 with runners in scoring position and are hitless in their past 22 at-bats in those situations. Theyve scored six runs in their past six games. "Were just not able to find that hole," Evan Longoria said. "We just have to keep going, keep fighting, stay positive through the tough times." The Rays eight-game losing streak is their longest since 2009. Theyve lost 10 consecutive road games while being outscored 52-19. Tampa Bay hit into three double plays -- one on a sacrifice attempt -- and had two runners caught stealing, including Yunel Escobar on the delayed steal attempt in the fifth. He singled with one out and took off for second when Alvarez had the ball on the mound before the next batter stepped to the plate, prompting catcher Jeff Mathis to holler at his pitcher. "Escobar caught me by surprise," Allvarez said. Charles Mann Womens Jersey. "What alerted me was Mathis scream. An easy out. A gift." Chris Archer (3-3) allowed only five hits in seven innings, but Rays starters remained winless in the past 16 games, mostly because of poor run support. Alvarezs past four victories have been shutouts, including a no-hitter on the final day of the 2013 season. He left his previous start last Wednesday after five innings because of a sore elbow, but he had only the Rays feeling any pain Tuesday. Alvarez said his arm felt fine, and he allayed any concerns with excellent velocity from start to finish. His final pitch was a 95 mph fastball. "We could tell early on that he had great stuff and was feeling good," Redmond said. Alvarez helped himself with six assists. The biggest came after a leadoff single in the eighth, when catcher Jose Molina bunted into a 1-6-3 double play. The Marlins needed three singles -- one by Alvarez -- and a walk to score the games only run. After they loaded the bases, Yelich fell behind 0-2 but got a walk when Archer missed with a 3-2 breaking ball. "A great at-bat by Yeli," Redmond said. "I dont know how he laid off a couple of those sliders. For a young kid like that, thats an amazing at-bat." Archer hopped off the mound in dismay at the call, but a TV replay showed the pitch was wide. "Instead of executing a pitch and letting him put it in play, I put it in the umpires hands, and it turns out he made a great call," Archer said. "I should have thrown it over the plate." The four-game, home-and-home series continues with two games in St. Petersburg beginning Wednesday. The Rays play 18 of their next 21 games at home. NOTES: After the game, the Marlins optioned 2B Derek Dietrich to Triple-A New Orleans. ... Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton broke hit bat when he lined out in the fourth inning, and the barrel sailed into the Marlins on-deck circle and hit Casey McGehee in the stomach. He wasnt hurt. ... RHP Kevin Gregg passed his physical and signed a minor league deal with the Marlins. ... Molina turned 39 Tuesday. ... RHP Tom Koehler (4-5, 3.18 ERA) is scheduled to start Wednesday for Miami against LHP David Price (4-4, 4.27 ERA). ' ' '
