scoring a career-high 41 points to help fourth-seeded Michigan
SPOKANE, Wash. -- Adreian Payne sent Tom Izzo a text. He wants to leave a legacy. Consider it done. The 6-foot-10 senior played the game of his life Thursday, scoring a career-high 41 points to help fourth-seeded Michigan State look every bit like a March Madness favourite in a 93-78 victory over Delaware. "He was playing in another zone, not even in the ozone," Izzo said. "He was in Pluto and beyond." This marked the first 40-point performance in the NCAA tournament since Stephen Curry did it for Davidson in a win over Gonzaga in 2008. Payne set a school tournament scoring record, surpassing the 34 points Greg Kelser scored during Michigan States 1979 title run led by Magic Johnson. Paynes overall line: 10 for 15 from the field, 4 for 5 from 3-point range, and a tournament-record 17 for 17 from the free throw line. He chipped in eight rebounds, too. "Forty-one is 41, and he was a load tonight," Delaware coach Monte Ross said. "He was probably the best big man that I have faced in 21 years of college basketball." Payne thought long and hard about leaving for the NBA after last season. He decided to stick around to see if he could lead Michigan State to another Final Four. Asked what his best night -- at least so far -- in a Spartan uniform means to him, Payne said, "Leaving a legacy." "I talked to Coach about that," he said. "The other day, I sent him a text and were just trying to win games. We are here to win the weekend and thats the main goal." Michigan States next game is Saturday against 12th-seeded Harvard, which beat Cincinnati 61-57 in an earlier East region contest. Though his entire performance was sublime, it was never better than during a 105-second stretch midway through the first half. Payne scored 12 straight points to help the Spartans (27-8) open an 18-point lead over the 13th-seeded Blue Hens (25-10). Those points came three at a time -- a trio of spot-up 3s and one ridiculous, spinning left-hander from the paint while he was being mugged by Carl Baptiste. Payne stepped to the line to make the free throw with his right hand -- the hand he shoots most of his shots with -- and by then, he had pretty much proven his point. "He made the right decision to stay," Izzo said. "Hes a much more cerebral player, hes a much stronger player. He is starting to marry the inside-outside game. And if he does that on a consistent basis, I see him as one of the best 4 men in the whole country." With the game out of reach -- but Izzo less than satisfied with what he called an uneven effort -- Payne played almost to the end and the Spartans fed him. He dunked with 4:26 left to reach his career high and break Kelsers record. Points Nos. 40 and 41 came on free throws; the second one gave him the record for most makes in an NCAA tournament game without a miss. The previous holders are a couple of unforgettable names: Bill Bradley (1963, Princeton) and Fennis Dembo (1987, Wyoming). "When youre scoring like that and your games coming so easy to you, and you make a lot of shots, it feels like youre in a rhythm," Payne said. "It feels like you cant be stopped." For the brief moments Delaware did stop him, others stepped up. Travis Trice scored 13 of his 19 points in the second half to prevent the Colonial Athletic Association champs from turning this into a game. Branden Dawson, the Big Ten tournaments most valuable player, finished with 10 points, eight rebounds and four assists -- modest on this day. It was that run through the Big Ten that turned Michigan State into a trendy pick in brackets across the country. President Barack Obama has the Spartans winning it all, and Las Vegas has them favoured along with Florida and Louisville. Devon Saddler had 21 points and Davon Usher added 20 for Delaware, which made its first NCAA appearance since 1999. Ross looked at it all with a sense of awe. He thought his team played pretty well. He still cant believe Michigan State is a No. 4 seed. "Im only reiterating what the whole country is saying," Ross said. "If the country is saying youre the odds-on favourite to win the national championship, youre not 16th best in the country." Miikka Kiprusoff Jersey .ca.

Trailing by a goal after 20 minutes of play, Joe Pavelski responded with three goals and an assist as the Sharks snapped a two-game losing skid with a 5-2 victory over the struggling Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday. Al MacInnis Jersey . On Wednesday night, they showed that stellar defence and a little small ball can get the job done too. With pinch-runner Kevin Pillar aboard after Dioner Navarro opened the bottom of the ninth with a single, Anthony Gose dropped down an excellent bunt along the first-base line.Swiss skier Sandro Viletta put in a stellar slalom run to win the gold medal in the Sochi Olympic mens super-combined on Friday. Viletta finished in a combined time of two minutes, 45.20 seconds over the downhill and slalom runs that make up the competition. The winner is the competitor with the fastest total time. Ivica Kostelic of Croatia won his third consecutive Olympic silver medal in the event, posting a total time of 2:45.54. He is the first man to win three Olympic medals in the combined. Kostelic was seventh after the downhill, a strong performance for the technical specialist. The 34-year-old won silver in the combined at the Turin Games, and silver in both the combined and the slalom at the Vancouver Olympics. Christof Innerhofer of Italy demonstrated improved slalom skills to win the bronze medal. Innerhofer has been known as more of a downhill specialist, but he tied technical specialist Kostelic on the slalom portion of the event. Norwegian Kjetil Jansrud was leading the event afterr the downhill, but finished fourth overall after the slalom, missing a medal by 0.dddddddddddd59 seconds. American skiers had won this event at the last two Olympic Games. Vancouver champion Bode Miller struggled through a series of gates high on the slalom course and never recovered enough speed to challenge for the podium. Teammate Ted Ligety, who won the combined in Turin, never looked comfortable on the slalom course and finished well back. Canadian Morgan Pridy had a tough go of it in his first Olympic experience. The Whistler, B.C., native was in 25th place following the downhill. During the slalom, Pridy struggled with his rhythm and finished in 2:50.03. Warm temperatures in the slalom run made course conditions slower. It seemed to be a factor in the downhill as well, with Jansruds time in the ninth starting slot not overly threatened by subsequent skiers. Through the duration of the slalom, skiers fought the soft and wet conditions, many losing the battle and scoring a DNF.
