options, with one being Dallas, an Antworten

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- The hundreds of Villanova fans at Charlestons TD Arena gathered with coach Jay Wright and his Wildcats to cheer their latest in-season tournament championship.Most of them surely believe winning the Charleston Classic can lead the defending national champions to even bigger celebrations this season.I feel good about where we are, our path, Wright said Sunday night.The Wildcats passed their biggest test yet in staring down UCF and 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall for a 67-57 victory, giving Villanova an in-season tournament title for the fourth straight season.Josh Hart, a preseason All-America selection, scored 11 of his 15 points in the second half and was chosen the events MVP. He and his teammates showed their savvy in maneuvering around Fall, whose wingspan is 8 feet, 2 inches.Its genius how they use him, Wright said. Its hard to play them. Theyre a tough team.The Knights anchor Fall near the basket on defense while his teammates switch through different schemes to frustrate opponents. If anyone dares to drive the lane, Fall is waiting to swat it away.On offense, Fall is also underneath waiting for entry passes that he can efficiently jam home for dunks.Fall made all 10 of his shots and finished with 20 points and 13 rebounds. He went 26 of 31 from the floor with 34 rebounds in three tournament games and was a constant headache for defenders.All I could do was make it difficult for him to get post touches, said Darryl Reynolds, the 6-9 Villanova forward charged with fronting Fall. You cant block his shot because he does a good job keeping the ball high.Reynolds, a senior starter, finished with two points and fouled out after 26 minutes.Still, it was the Wildcats celebrating. Fans and teammates sang Happy Birthday to Final Four star Kris Jenkins, who had 12 points despite an off shooting night as Villanova ran its November record the past four years to 24-0.It was a great way to spend my birthday, he said. I wouldnt have it any other way.UCF closed to 37-32 on Matt Williams basket with 16 minutes left. Then the Wildcats took off on a 12-3 run to extend the lead. Hart had a jumper and his only 3-pointer in the surge. The Knights never got within single digits after that.Theyve been in that position before, you could tell, UCF coach Johnny Dawkins said. They made the big plays when they needed to make them.Villanova freshman Donte DiVincenzo had 13 points, and Jalen Brunson added 12.Williams scored 17 points for UCF.BIG PICTUREVillanova: The Wildcats showed their resiliency and skill in battering three opponents in Charleston, all by double digits. If youre nitpicking for a deficiency, it might be a lack of height; Reynolds played center most of the weekend.We knew this was coming, Wright said.Villanova has won three games in the past week against teams that had height advantages: No. 15 Purdue, Wake Forest and UCF.UCF: The Knights picture is always big with Fall, the tallest player in the game. The school says he is among the 40 tallest people in the world, too. But UCFs offense at times doesnt run through Fall, maybe because hes still developing his passing skills down low. If that happens, look for the Knights and Fall to take off as he becomes a more versatile player.POLL IMPLICATIONSLook for Villanova to move up a spot after No. 1 Duke lost to seventh-ranked Kansas earlier this week.CHART CLIMBERWright has 359 victories at Villanova, moving past former boss Rollie Massimino into second place on the schools all-time list among coaches. Only Al Severance with 413 stands in front of Wright.UP NEXTVillanova heads home to face the College of Charleston. After the teams spent the past four days crisscrossing each other at TD Arena, they travel to Philadelphia to play Wednesday night.UCF begins a two-game homestand against Seattle on Saturday night.---More AP college basketball: Cheap Seattle Mariners Jerseys China .

OXNARD, Calif. -- Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the club has had discussions with the agent for quarterback Nick Foles as a possible replacement for the injured Kellen Moore.?Moore suffered a broken right fibula late in Tuesdays practice and is looking at a three- to four-month recovery after surgery, which is scheduled for Wednesday.?Hes had success against us for the (Philadelphia) Eagles, so weve seen him a lot, Jones said. Hes got a big arm. Obviously when you have the great offensive line we have and we think were going to have a very solid running game, the thing you worry about is people trying to suffocate you. Hes proven he can get the ball down the field, so hes got a lot of attributes that could fit well for us.A source told ESPNs Adam Schefter that Foles now has a couple options, with one being Dallas, and a decision is likely Wednesday or Thursday. The Minnesota Vikings are also thought to be interested in Foles. Pat Shurmur is the tight ends coach for the Vikings, and he worked with Foles in Philly.The Kansas City Chiefs also are interested in Foles.?At the start of training camp, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Foles was not an option because the team had four quarterbacks on its roster. With Moores injury and only rookie Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers, who spent most of last year on the practice squad, on the roster behind Tony Romo, Stephen Jones said the Cowboys will look for a veteran-type quarterback.dddddddddddd?Jones said the Cowboys have heard from teams regarding potential trades, as well. Earlier Wednesday, sources told ESPN Insider Ed Werder that Josh McCown of the Cleveland Browns and Mike Glennon of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are potential options.We have to un-turn every stone, Jones said. We have teams that are obviously calling to let us know that they may have a guy, somebody available, and we have to uncover that. The No. 1 priority is to get it right. Expeditiously is No. 2. We want to get a guy in here sooner rather than later. Im not one of those guys, Are you close? Will it get done by the end of the day? We want to get it done as soon as we possibly can whether thats today, tomorrow or whenever it needs to get done.Foles was among the quarterbacks the Cowboys investigated this offseason, well before he was released by the Los Angeles Rams. He has posted a 1-3 record against the Cowboys with four touchdown passes and one interception. He beat the Cowboys in the winner-take-all 2013 season finale, in which Romo was unable to play because of back surgery.For his career, Foles has a 19-16 record with 53 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions. The Rams released him before training camp after being unable to swing a trade.? ' ' '
