LAWRENCE, Kan. -- David Beaty had to stop for a moment, lower the microphone from his face and wipe away a tear.His first win at Kansas meant that much to him.Ive never been through what we went through last year, the second-year coach said shortly after a 55-6 victory over Rhode Island on Saturday night. Personally it was very difficult. I got emotional with those guys. Its just so hard, so obviously Im overjoyed for them.Montell Cozart threw three touchdown passes, Ryan Willis had two more and third-string quarterback Carter Stanley also tossed one as the Jayhawks (1-0) won for the first time since beating Iowa State on Nov. 8, 2014 -- a span of 665 days that included the programs first 0-12 record a year ago.Last year, everybody knows the story, said Cozart, who learned he would start at QB just before the kickoff. Its special for all of us and we know its special to our coach.The Rams (0-1) were held to 219 yards of offense by a Kansas defense that gave up at least 40 points eight times last season. Wes McKoy was 6 of 29 for 43 yards with a touchdown and an interception.Rhode Island has never beaten a school from the Football Bowl Subdivision in 14 tries.There were some ugly things that happened out there and well try to find the positives out of it and see where it goes from here, Rhode Island coach Jim Fleming said. We played very poorly for what were capable of and as a result, we got spanked a little bit.Beaty has been slowing trying to rebuild the downtrodden Jayhawks, and there was little evidence of progress last season. But an infusion of touted freshmen and high-profile transfers -- LaQuvionte Gonzalez came from Texas A&M, for example -- gave a decent opening crowd reason to be optimistic.So did the scoreboard: Kansas piled up its most points since routing Nebraska 76-39 on Nov. 3, 2007, when Mark Mangino was still on the sideline. The Jayhawks are on their fourth head coach since then.Its our first win in my time here, Beaty said, but man, theres been so many victories weve shared leading up to this. Its just the first time its come to fruition on the scoreboard.Gonzalez caught seven passes for 78 yards and a touchdown. Steven Sims Jr. hauled in a couple of touchdown grabs. Taylor Martin and Keaun Kinner also ran for scores.But the big question surrounding Kansas on Saturday night was who would be under center.Cozart was the starter before a season-ending injury a year ago, and Willis took over the rest of the way. The two battled until the final week of training camp and Cozart won the right to take the first snaps of the game, though both played a significant amount of time.Cozart wound up going 18 of 25 for 199 yards, while Willis was 7 of 9 for 144 yards.We just knew all week if we trusted out coaches everything would fall into place, Cozart said. We just had to handle the routine plays and everything would take care of itself.Still, there were times they looked like the same old Jayhawks.Late in the first half, Kansas failed to convert third down, got called for illegal substitution and missed a field-goal attempt. Cozart threw a pick in the end zone midway through the third quarter, while Derrick Neal botched a punt return midway through the fourth quarter.But for the most part, it was easy to look good against the Rams.The Football Championship Subdivision bottom-dweller also muffed a punt that led to the Jayhawks first touchdown, then had their only extra-point attempt blocked in the second quarter.We were looking to come in and win. We were looking to come in and execute and play cleanly, Fleming said, and we did none of the above.TRAINERS ROOMRhode Island running back Harold Cooper, arguably their biggest playmaker, hurt his ankle early in the game and never had a carry. T.J. Anderson carried 16 times for 59 yards in his place.THE TAKEAWAYRhode Island: The Rams chances were ruined in part by three turnovers, including a pair of fumbles that were recovered by the Jayhawks. Both of them turned into eventual touchdowns.Kansas: Gonzalez has star potential. The speedy wide receiver had to sit out last season under NCAA transfer rules, so he was playing in his first game since Dec. 29, 2014. He had an awesome night, Willis said. I felt like of all the guys he had the best night.UP NEXTRhode Island: Plays its home opener against Albany next Saturday.Kansas: Ohio visits Memorial Stadium next Saturday.---AP College Football site: www.collegefootball.ap.org Jalen Richard Jersey . The players spoke Jan. 13 during a Major League Baseball Players Association conference call after Rodriguez sued the union and Major League Baseball to overturn an arbitrators decision suspending him for the 2014 season and post-season.

A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. http://www.officialauthenticraidersstore.com/authentic-lyle-alzado-jersey.html .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche.

HOUSTON -- Three contests into a five-game road trip that represents their second longest of the season, the Toronto Raptors remain one of the most lethal offensive teams in the NBA.Defensively the Raptors are sieve, and their issues on that end of the court continue to undermine their offensive might.Despite averaging 113 points over their last five games, the Raptors (8-6) lost for the fourth time during that stretch on Monday night when they fell 123-115 to the Clippers in Los Angeles. Toronto is 4-4 over its last eight games, a span in which each opponent has scored at least 102 points.Toronto ranks 24th in defensive rating, surrendering 109.2 points per 100 possessions and is allowing opponents a 51.2 effective field goal percentage that ranks 22nd.It seems like everybody weve played the last couple weeks weve turned it into an offensive slugfest, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. Until we get defense in the game and maintain in the game (things will remain the same). I think our guys are trying. Theyre trying defensively but were not getting it done. Were not getting stops when we need to.There was some concern that the Raptors would struggle initially following the loss of center Bismack Biyombo during the offseason. Biyombo helped anchor a Toronto team that finished 11th in defensive rating last season before signing with the Orlando Magic. Without his rim protection, the Raptors havent quite been the same collectively, an issue that is also related to their individual defensive ability.I think we all can play better defense and thats something we can hold ourselves accountable for, Raptors guuard Kyle Lowry said.ddddddddddddI think we all want to be a better individual defender but we have to do it as a team. Its a lot of guys in this league that you pretty much cant guard one-on-one. You have to have five guys or 10 eyes on him.Its part of your game. Weve got to get better.The Rockets (9-5) improved to 3-0 since guard Patrick Beverley returned from preseason knee surgery with their 99-96 win at Detroit on Monday night. That victory marked the first time in eight games that Houston failed to score at least 100 points, but their developing cohesion continues to carry them through trials.Guard James Harden has played so exceptionally this season that nitpicking his flaws might soon become a necessary method of analysis. Harden is averaging 28.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 12.4 assists this season but his 81 percent shooting at the free-throw line represents his worst mark since his rookie season when he shot 80.8 percent with the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2009-10. Over his first four seasons with Houston, Harden shot 86.1 percent from the free-throw line.After starting the Pistons game 10 for 10 at the charity stripe, Harden missed 5 of 9 free throws down the stretch to keep the game interesting. Over his last four games Harden is shooting just 73.9 percent from the line.I had to laugh it off. Its funny, Harden said. But we all have games like this. Just cant let it happen consistently. Ive got to take my time, go up there and concentrate, and make the free throw.
