Arizona will bring guard Kadeem Allen along slowly as it begins a stretch of three games in five days.Allen missed the second game of the season and played only four minutes Friday night in the third game against Sacred Heart because of a left knee sprain. He is the only available senior for the 10th-ranked Wildcats.Arizona (3-0) will play host to Northern Colorado (1-2) on Monday night at McKale Center in Tucson as part of the non-bracketed part of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational. The Wildcats move on to play Santa Clara in Las Vegas on Thursday and either Vanderbilt or Butler on Friday.Getting productive minutes out of Allen, a returning starter and the teams best perimeter defender, is critical during such a busy stretch for a team that has only seven other scholarship players, pending news on sophomore guard Allonzo Trier.Kadeem wasnt going to further injure himself, Wildcats coach Sean Miller said of Allen making a brief appearance against Sacred Heart. Thats why we were able to play him. You could make the argument that with what hes working through, getting him out there is actually a good thing. I think every couple of days, hell feel better and better.Clearly, he wasnt himself. But by the time we get to Las Vegas, Kadeem might not be 100 percent, but hell be further along than he is now and able to play heavy minutes.Trier, the teams leading returning scorer, having averaged 14.8 points per game last season, has not played in five games, including two exhibitions. School officials have not commented on his absence or a timetable for a potential return amid rumors of eligibility issues.In the meantime, it is full speed ahead for Arizonas trio of freshmen, including forward Lauri Markkanen. He is averaging 20.3 points per game, shooting 59.4 percent from the field (19 of 32), 45.5 percent from 3-point range (5 of 11) and 94.7 percent from the free-throw line (18 of 19).If anything, Miller wants more of the offense to run through the 7-footer from Finland, who is versatile enough to play some small forward while still packing a punch in the post.Lauri on the offensive end is a real mismatch at times, Miller said.Freshman guard Kobi Simmons is an athletic marvel with a 45-inch vertical leap. He is second on the team in scoring at 15 points per game, having gotten to the line 21 times.And freshman wing Rawle Alkins is third in scoring at 12 points per game. He is strong and burly, also able to get into the lane and draw fouls.Arizona, with Markkanen and 7-foot center Dusan Ristic as well as 6-11 Chance Comanche and 6-9 Keanu Pinder off the bench, will have a significant size advantage over Northern Colorado. Ristic used a similar edge vs. Sacred Heart to post 13 points and a career-high 15 rebounds.Northern Colorado is coming off an 88-72 loss at Santa Clara on Saturday night. The Bears opened the season with an 89-52 loss at Butler before beating Colorado Christian.Sophomore guard Jordan Davis had 24 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds in the loss to Santa Clara. He is averaging 23.7 points this season. Guard Chaz Glotta is averaging 14 points per game.The Bears led Santa Clara by four at halftime before giving up 50 second-half points.When teams make a run, instead of settling down and trying to orchestrate the offense, we tend to rush things, coach Jeff Linder said. In turn, that drops your shooting percentage and increases your turnovers. Rudy Gay Jersey . After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. LaMarcus Aldridge Jersey . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. . Dusautoir, the former World Player of the Year, sustained a torn bicep playing for Toulouse in the Heineken Cup on Saturday. The flanker, who has played 65 times for France, is expected to be out for up to four months. David Robinson Jersey .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. San Antonio Spurs Jerseys . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Chinese wheelchair racer Zou Lihong captured her third medal and first individual gold of the Rio Paralympics on Sunday, beating American Tatyana McFadden in a photo finish in the womens marathon.On a course looping along sun-soaked Copacabana Beach, Zou and McFadden spent the race in a lead pack of eight competitors and then sprinted to the finish. The pair finished in identical times of 1 hour, 38 minutes, 44 seconds. But after they crossed the finish line, Zou, ahead by a whisker, raised an arm in victory.Amanda McGrory of the United States was third in 1:38:45.The 32-year-old Zou, a world champion last year at 5,000 meters and 800 meters, took bronze in the 400 meters in Rio. She also was part of Chinas gold medal-winning 4 X 400-meter relay.It was very technical course because its so flat. I tried to make a couple of moves in the beginning, but everyone came together so that wasnt working, said McFadden, who bolted ahead briefly right at the starting gun. I knew athletes were waiting at the end to sprint so Im proud of myself for pulling the last three miles and taking home a silver.Entering the games with her sights set on seven gold medals in every wheelchair racing event, from the 100 meters on up, McFadden finished with six medals, four gold and two silver.The only race in which she didnt medal was the 4 X 400 relay, after the U.S. team was disqualified due to a lane violation. Her other silver was in the 100 meters, her first event. In that race, McFadden couldnt completely close the gap after Chinese racer Liu Wenjun got out to an excellent sstart.ddddddddddddIts been amazing, especially to medal in all six events from the 100 to the marathon, and its been amazing to medal silver in both events because theyre so opposite, McFadden said.Of all her events, McFadden has performed best in the marathon, although this is her first Paralympic medal in the race. She finished ninth in the 2012 London Paralympics.In 2013, she made history when she was the first person -- able-bodied or otherwise -- to win all four major marathons, Boston, New York, Chicago and London, in a single year. She then repeated the feat two times over for a grand total of 12 marathon titles in three years.McFadden set Paralympic records in the 800, 1,500 and 5,000 meters in Rio, and was part of American podium sweeps twice, in the 1,500 and 5,000.Born with spina bifida, McFadden is paralyzed from the waist down and spent the first six years of her life in a Russian orphanage. She was adopted by Deborah McFadden, who brought her back to the United States and raised her with her longtime partner, Bridget OShaughnessey, in Maryland.In the mens wheelchair marathon, which started a minute before the womens race, Marcel Hug of Switzerland won his second Rio gold and fourth medal of the games, finishing in a time of 1 hour, 26 minutes, 16 seconds.---Anna Pitingolo is a journalism student at Penn State University.
