LAWRENCE, Kan. -- On an afternoon in which three Georgetown players fouled out and his team sent No. 18 Kansas to the free throw line 46 times, Hoyas coach John Thompson III reached an obvious conclusion. His team just wasnt physical enough. "I thought we were the farthest thing from it to be honest with you," Thompson said without a trace of sarcasm. "We slapped and fouled, but we werent physical." The Jayhawks took advantage of the Hoyas foul trouble, overwhelming them in the second half with a variety of highlight-reel slams in an 86-64 victory Saturday. "If you look at the game, we didnt make enough of the physical plays," Thompson said. "When I say that I mean a good box out. When I say that I mean if its a loose ball we have to be the one to aggressively go after it and come up with the 50-50 balls." Tarik Black came off the bench to score 17 points and Joel Embiid also had 17 for the Jayhawks (8-3), while Markel Starks paced Georgetown with 19 and DVauntes Smith-Rivera added 12. The Hoyas (7-3) tried to use the kind of muscle that has suited them so well in the rough-and-tumble Big East, but all they did was get into debilitating foul trouble. Bruising big man Josh Smith, who had been averaging 14.1 points, scored just five before fouling out. Moses Ayegba and Nate Lubick also fouled out as Kansas asserted its dominance in the post. "They did a good job of getting us in foul trouble and we got deep into the bench," said Thompson, whose team was playing its first true road game. "Do we have a lack of depth? I dont know. I dont think necessarily the guys that were in foul trouble played particularly well." Andrew Wiggins added 12 points and Naadir Tharpe had 10 for the Jayhawks, who proved once more why the Phog is such an intimidating venue. Kansas pushed its non-conference home winning streak to 67 games by beating the Hoyas in their first visit to Allen Fieldhouse. "This venue is storied," Thompson said. "With that being said it wasnt the venue or the fans, it was the guys down on the other bench that I thought played at a high level today." The game was so rough that Jayhawks forward Perry Ellis left early in the second half after taking an elbow to the back of his head. Ellis tried to stay in the game but missed a free throw so badly that he took himself out. He never returned from the locker room. "If he had a concussion, its very, very slight," Kansas coach Bill Self said. "He did bruise the nerve in his neck. ... Its something hell be able to come back from in a short time." Just as every other team has done this season, Georgetown tried to combat the Jayhawks length and athleticism by employing a zone defence in the first half. The only problem was the Hoyas were so mired in foul trouble that they didnt have anybody to occupy the inside. "We didnt do what we needed to do to win the game," Lubick said. "We didnt make the type of plays with our frontcourt that you need to make to come and win a game here." Kansas built its 44-34 lead thanks in part to a 14-3 run fueled by its defence. Georgetown at one point went more than 10 1/2 minutes without a field goal. Ayegba and Lubick had three fouls each by halftime, and three other Hoyas who spent time guarding the paint had picked up two fouls. That included Smith, who picked up his third in the opening minute of the second half and had to spend long stretches on the bench. Georgetown tried to get back into the game midway through the second half, trimming its deficit to 59-47 on Jabil Trawicks basket. But frustration boiled over for the Hoyas when Trawick clobbered Wiggins on the way to the basket, and the teams nearly came to blows. Wiggins responded by knocking down a 3-pointer in Trawicks face, and in a matter of minutes, the Jayhawks had built a comfortable lead. Embiid put an exclamation mark on it when he followed up a miss by Wiggins with a thunderous jam that left the entire goal shaking. It set off a festive celebration of the Jayhawks first game at the Phog in 29 days. "The last couple practices before this game, I told the guys it would be a fun game to come back home," Tharp said. "I knew it was going to be exciting. I knew it was going to be turned up in there. It was just a good game." Levine Toilolo Falcons Jersey .

Capturing the World Cup will have to wait. Just like four years ago, the United States is going home after the round of 16, beaten when Belgium scored twice in extra time Tuesday and then held on for a 2-1 win. "Thirty-one teams get their heart broken," goalkeeper Tim Howard said. "It has to end sometime. It ended a little bit early for us." Playing the finest game of his career, Howard stopped a dozen shots to keep the Americans even through regulation and force an additional 30 minutes. He wound up with 16 saves -- the most in the World Cup since FIFA started keeping track in 2002. Before exiting, the U.S. showed the spunk that won Americas attention. The Belgians built a two-goal lead when Kevin De Bruyne scored in the 93rd minute and Romelu Lukaku in the 105th. But then Julian Green, at 19 the third-youngest player in the tournament, stuck out his right foot to volley in Michael Bradleys pass over the defence in the 107th, two minutes after entering. "I was sure that we would make the second goal and we would go to the penalty shootout," Green said. The Americans nearly did. In the 114th, Clint Dempsey peeled away on a 30-yard free kick by Bradley, who passed ahead to Chris Wondolowski. He fed Dempsey, and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois bolted off his line to block the 6-yard shot. At the final whistle, the U.S. players fell to the field in their all-white uniforms like so many crumpled tissues. "They made their country proud with this performance and also with their entire performance in this World Cup," said Jurgen Klinsmann, the former German World Cup champion who took over as coach three years ago. The Americans advanced from a difficult first-round group to reach the knockout rounds of consecutive World Cups for the first time. Four years ago, they were eliminated by Ghana 2-1 on a goal in the third minute of extra time. "Getting to the round of 16, if we dont do that, were very, very disappointed," U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati said. "We get here and its kind of the swing game. We get beyond here, then its generally viewed as very successful -- this year was a little different because of the group we had in the first round, so that already was a success." The crowd of 551,227 at Arena Fonte Nova appeared to be about one third pro-U.ddddddddddddS., with 10 per cent backing the Belgians and the rest neutral. Back home, millions watched in offices, homes and public gatherings that included a huge crowd at Chicagos Soldier Field. President Barack Obama joined about 200 staffers in an Executive Office Building auditorium to watch the second half. "I believe!" he exclaimed as he walked in at the front of the hall. "I believe!" Belgium outshot the U.S. 38-14. The 35-year-old Howard kept the ball out with slides, with dives and with leaps. But he never felt it was his special night. "If this continues, then were in trouble," he recalled thinking. With forward Jozy Altidore still not recovered from the strained hamstring that had sidelined him since the June 16 opener, Klinsmann inserted Wondolowski as a second striker in the 72nd minute. He appeared to have a chance to win it in stoppage time when Jermaine Jones flicked the ball to him at the top of the 6-yard box, but with Courtois coming out, Wondolowski put the ball over the crossbar. While the linesman put out his flag, it was unclear whether he was signalling goal kick or offside. In the third minute of extra time, Matt Besler tried to intercept a pass to Lukaku but fell down as the Belgian striker fought free. Lukaku sped in alone, crossed, and the ball rebounded off defender Omar Gonzalez. Kevin De Bruyne controlled it, took three touches as he spun and beat Howard just over his right foot. "I thought I could make a play on the ball. I took a shot and missed and lost my balance," Besler said. Twelve minutes later, with the U.S. pushing for an equalizer, Bradleys shot was blocked and De Bruyne burst ahead on a counter. He fed Lukaku, who sent the ball over the left shoulder of Howard, his Everton teammate, and seemingly put the game out of reach. But Green, among five German-Americans on the U.S. roster and a surprise pick, woke up the team and its fans with his first touch, setting off raucous chants of "U-S-A! U-S-A!" There would be no final comeback this time, though. Bradley said the Americans had told themselves that regardless of when their run ended, they wanted to abandon their defensive style of the past. "We wanted to go home going for it," he said. "And," he added with satisfaction, "we did." Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
