BORDEAUX, France -- Italy coach Antonio Conte has called on his players to do something super-extraordinary by beating Germany in the quarterfinals of the European Championship on Saturday.Italy arrived in France with an aging team that had faced plenty of criticism back home. But it won Group E with a match to spare and beat two-time defending champion Spain 2-0 in the round of 16.Next up is fierce foe Germany, which is seeking to add the European Championship crown to the World Cup it won in Brazil two years ago.At the beginning we had little credibility among everyone, both in the media at home and also abroad, Conte said Friday. Everyone knew that its a dark moment for Italian football talent. But I think we are showing that with hard work, with organization, with 23 great lads who work hard, who sacrifice themselves, we are trying to overcome obstacles that at the beginning seemed insurmountable.Now we have someone in front of us who is at a really high level ... against Spain we did something extraordinary, tomorrow we need to do something super extraordinary because it will be a really tough test. But these are the matches which make you feel great.Germany has never beaten Italy in a competitive match, with the Azzurri winning semifinals in 2006 -- on their way to the World Cup triumph -- and at Euro 2012.However, Germany humiliated Italy 4-1 in a friendly in Munich in March.They have grown a lot from that match, Conte said. I think we have also grown a lot from that friendly. It was a friendly which taught us a lot of things.Italy will likely be without key midfielder Daniele de Rossi, who is a doubt with a thigh injury.Conte is already missing midfielder Antonio Candreva because of injury, while Claudio Marchisio, Marco Verratti and Riccardo Montolivo were ruled out before the start of the tournament.Were not going to give anything away, he said. But we know that these are matches where you have to be 120 percent to play in them because theyre very, very physical matches, intense matches. Matches in which you dont need to be almost fit -- you need to be very fit.

WACO, Texas -- Baylor coach Kim Mulkey never paid attention to the scoreboard. That was never going to be a concern for her second-ranked team against an overmatched opponent.Instead, the Lady Bears worked on improving themselves three days after their loss at third-ranked UConn.Beatrice Mompremier had 11 points and 15 rebounds while playing only 15 minutes and Baylor overwhelmed Mississippi Valley State 101-36 on Sunday, when the Lady Bears worked on conditioning by pressing throughout the game and got to play against a zone defense like they will see throughout the season.Its very obvious that there are going to be games in non-conference that were going to be better than. But youve got to get better, Mulkey said. Were coming off of a very hard loss to swallow after watching the film for three hours against UConn, and just saw glaring things that we control and weve got to get better. Youve got to come into this game and never look at the scoreboard.The Lady Bears (3-1) scored the first seven points in the game and had a 17-point lead by the end of the first quarter. They were up 49-19 at halftime.Nina Davis scored 15 points for the Lady Bears, and the preseason AP All-American became only the sixth Baylor player to surpass 2,000 career points. The senior forward now has 2,001.Its definitely a blessing, of course, but it doesnt really mean much if I dont win a championship this year or we dont get to the Final Four, said Davis, whose first three seasons have all ended in the Elite Eight. Its a great milestone, but I want more.Alexis Prince added 11 points for Baylor and freshmen Natalie Chou and Juicy Landrum each had 10. Kalani Brown had 12 rebounds.Lauren Elliot had 11 points to lead Mississippi Valley State (1-2), which had 28 turnovers that led to 35 Baylor points.Going from midway into the third and the entire fourth quarter, all my upperclassmen fouled out, Deviletttes coach Jessica Kern said.dddddddddddd So, I had five freshmen on the floor, and Im biting every nail I had left. Please get it over halfcourt.BIG PICTUREMiss. Valley St.: Already overmatched, Valley had two of its starters foul out of the game. The Devilettes shot only 24 percent from the field (14 of 58) and were only 1 of 12 on 3-pointers.Baylor: Three days after the 72-61 loss at UConn, the Lady Bears had the expected lopsided victory and won their 44th consecutive home game. Playing the first of five games in an eight-day stretch, nobody played more than 22 minutes and 12 of the 13 players who got in the game scored.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Lady Bears likely will drop at least one spot in the new poll Monday, since UConn was just behind them in the last Top 25.EXTENDED STREAKSBaylor won its 170th consecutive home games against non-ranked opponents since losing to Auburn in the WNIT final in Waco on April 4, 2003, and 155th straight home game vs. non-conference opponents in that same span. The Lady Bears have won their last 44 home games overall.MOTIVATED NINADavis was held scoreless against UConn, the only game she has ever played for Baylor without a point. I was very motivated, but its really not about me. Its about the overall team, Davis said. UConn loss, it was a tough one to swallow, but we cant think about the past. ... So, we just wanted to come out today and play more aggressive, play with more energy and just help everybody get a flow going. UP NEXTMississippi Valley State started a five-game road trip, but have a few days before playing Friday at Northwestern State in Louisiana.Baylor is home again Tuesday against Southeastern Louisiana, and then heads to Florida to play three straight days in the Gulf Coast Showcase next weekend.
