ANAHEIM, Calif. Air Max 98 Supreme Black . -- Virginia Techs Zach LeDay started the second half with a thunderous one-handed dunk punctuated by a high-stepping celebration against Nebraska.His teammates fed off that dunk and several other LeDay slams as he scored 19 points and added nine rebounds to lead Virginia Tech to a 66-53 victory over Nebraska in the third-place game of the Wooden Legacy on Sunday.Virginia Tech (5-1) wowed offensively in the second half and made its final six free throws over the last 55 seconds to secure the win after trailing by eight points in the first half. The second half was all Hokies.Coach told us we were playing really good defense and that shots were going to fall, LeDay said. We couldnt be offensive sensitive. Were not built to be offensive sensitive. Were built for games like that. Its a fistfight. Youve got to get rebounds and get in there. ... We wanted to come out in the second half and punch them in the mouth and in the second half make all the little plays.Nebraska (4-2) didnt have an answer for the Hokies inside. Guard Tai Webster led Nebraska with 23 points and added eight rebounds, but the rest of his teammates had 30 points combined.LeDay, a senior forward, came off the bench and had his way inside. He was the focal point of the offense.I think its fun to watch. I think he plays with an edge, Virginia Tech coach Buzz Williams said of LeDay. One thing I would say thats hard to quantify is that I think those guys care about one another. You can see as we were struggling in the first half that they were looking to throw the ball to Zach. That didnt discontinue in the second half when we began to make more shots.Virginia Tech shot just 29.6 percent from the field in the first half but found its shooting rhythm in the second half, making 56.5 percent (13 of 23) of its shots.BIG PICTUREVirginia Tech lost its first game of the season to Texas A&M in the semifinals of the tournament but responded by beating the Cornhuskers and playing well with lead down the stretch.Nebraska played well in the Wooden Legacy, even in an 82-71 loss to UCLA in the semifinals -- its first loss of the season. The Cornhuskers return home having been battle tested against two solid teams and can learn much from film of those games.QUOTE OF THE GAMEMost of the Nebraska players went to Disneyland on Saturday, which was an off day for the tournament. Coach Tim Miles was not among those at the happiest place on earth.I was mad about losing to UCLA, so I didnt go, Miles said. My son came (back) and told me he went on a lot of attractions. I said I only went on two, my bed and the toilet.QUOTE OF THE GAME PART TWOVirginia Tech had a difficult time in the offensive zone as it plodded along and missed 19 of 27 shots.Zach knows what it is because were from the same place. Its like a tractor pull, Williams said. None of its fun. Its just a bunch of country people on a Saturday night and thats their entertainment. Thats what it looked like. We shot (29.6) percent. They shot (38.5) percent. Thats not fun as a fan. Its not fun for anybody, I wouldnt think.UP NEXTVirginia Tech returns home for a brief stay, then is off to play at No. 25 Michigan on Wednesday. Home cooking is up after that, as the Hokies play six consecutive games at Cassell Coliseum and dont play on the road again until 2017.Nebraska travels to Clemson on Wednesday, followed by home games against South Dakota and a stiff test against No. 12 Creighton.

McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Marc Gasol made the winning free throws, but Tony Allens defense made the difference down the stretch.Thats his job, Gasol said. Thats what he does, and hes really good at it.Gasol scored 25 points, including a pair of free throws with 12.2 seconds remaining to give the Memphis Grizzlies a 95-94 victory over the Orlando Magic on Thursday night.Gasols free throws completed a 14-point comeback in the fourth quarter as the short-handed Grizzlies snapped a two-game losing streak.Though Gasol carried the offense, both coaches pointed to Allens defense as the reason for a 13-0 Memphis run that brought the Grizzlies back into the game.He just took over that game defensively, Memphis coach David Fizdale said.Added Magic coach Frank Vogel: Credit his energy. He just made a lot of hustle plays that turned the game around.After Gasols free throws gave Memphis its first lead since early in the second half, Orlando still had a chance to win the game. But JaMychal Green stole the ball from Elfrid Payton near the top of the key. The ball ended up in Gasols hands as time ran out.Troy Daniels finished with 19 points for the short-handed Grizzlies, who dressed nine players due to injuries. Andrew Harrison had 11 points and eight assists.Evan Fournier led the Magic with 28 points, while Nikola Vucevic had 18 points and 11 rebounds. Jeff Green scored 12 of his 14 points early in the fourth as Orlando built its lead.JaMychal Greens steal from Payton was his second in the fourth quarter. Allen also had a pair and disrupted the Orlando offense.That one hurts. Hurts bad, Fournier said. They just played more aggressive than us in the final 5 minutes.And Fournier didnt leave out Allen as the reason either.Tony Allen changed the game by just being more aggressive, getting in the passing lane and getting more deflections, the Magic guard said.TIP-INSMagic: Payton, listed as questionable with a right ankle sprain, camee off the bench in the first quarter. Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Snakeskin. ... Jodie Meeks remained out recovering from a right foot injury. ...

Memphis is now 5-0 on the second night of back-to-backs.TRIAGE UNITThe Grizzlies remained short-handed based on injuries and personal leave. Memphis dressed only nine players as it did in Wednesday nights loss in Toronto. Among the injured: G Mike Conley, F Vince Carter, F James Ennis, F Chandler Parsons and F/C Brandan Wright. Also, F Zach Randolph is not with the team due to the death of his mother last week.

The last game without a 3-pointer was March 14, 2007.DOUBLE-DOUBLE, BUT NOT ENOUGHVucevic recorded his 10th double-double of the season and almost put a dagger in the Grizzlies comeback hopes. After JaMychal Greens 3-pointer cut the Magic lead to 94-93, Vucevic fired a 26-footer with 24 seconds left. The ball rattled in the rim before popping out, setting the stage for Gasols final free throws.UP NEXTMagic: Continue a five-game road trip on Friday night, playing the Sixers in Philadelphia.Grizzlies: Remain home to face the Lakers on Saturday.
