BERKELEY, Calif. -- Ivan Rabb has posted a double-double in all three games hes played this season, but after Cals 67-55 win over Southeastern Louisiana on Sunday, the sophomore forward said he still hasnt found his comfort zone.Honestly its still a little rough, said Rabb, an AP preseason All-American, who missed more than a month of practice time and the seasons first two games with a toe injury. I missed a lot of shots I normally make. My teammates tell me, `Dont get frustrated, keep your head up. Rabb had 17 points and 10 rebounds against the Lions.Charlie Moore scored 17 of his 22 points in the first half to set the tone and led the Bears (4-1) in scoring for the third time in the past four games. Moore, who entered the game as the Pac-12 Conferences No. 3 scorer averaging 19.8 points, made 4 of 6 from the 3-point arc.Gosh, hes got such a great future, Southeastern Louisiana coach Jay Ladner said of Moore. He was really the difference in the game.Grant Mullins added 13 points and Kingsley Okoroh had 10 points and nine rebounds for Cal.Davon Hayes led Southeastern Louisiana (4-3) with 11 points. Moses Greenwood added 10 points.Rabb returned to Cal after being projected as an NBA lottery pick, and through three games is averaging 16 points and 10.3 rebounds. But his game still appears a bit ragged.Ive had very limited practices, Rabb said. When you try to practice a few times and go and play, its night and day. The games are a lot faster. But Im starting to get into a groove and my conditioning is getting little better.Cal coach Cuonzo Martin said Rabbs uneven play is understandable. You miss that kind of time, youre a step slow, he said. My thing is defend, rebound and play hard. The scoring will come.Southeastern Louisiana was in a hole from the start. Guard Marlain Veal picked up three fouls in a span of 11 seconds and Cal led 11-1. Veal, coming off a 20-point game at Colorado State, scored just two points before fouling out.For the second straight game, Cal led by 20 points in the second half then allowed its opponent to cut the margin to single digits. This time, the Bears missed 10 straight shots and the Lions pulled within 48-39 with 10 minutes left.I thought we played great in the second half. We made a game out of it, Ladner said. We got a little discombobulated there when Veal picked up three quick fouls to start the game. It took a while for us to get settled down.BIG PICTURECal: The Bears will be without junior center Kameron Rooks indefinitely after he injured his left knee Friday against Wyoming. Rooks, who started two of Cals first four games, was averaging 6.5 points and 6.8 rebounds. He is scheduled to undergo further tests.Rooks joins senior guard Jabari Bird on the shelf. Bird, a former McDonalds All-American, scored 14 points in Cals opener but has missed the past four games with back spasms. The timetable for his return is uncertain.Southeastern Louisiana: Turnovers have been a thorn for the Lions. They entered play Sunday tied for 263rd nationally at 17.2 turnovers per game, and they had three against Cal before scoring their first field goal. Southeastern finished with 16 giveaways.UP NEXTCal plays its fourth game in a five-game homestand on Wednesday against Louisiana Tech (3-2), whose two defeats this season were on the road to South Carolina and Nebraska.Having completed a three-game road trip through Texas, Colorado and California, Southeastern Louisiana returns home to play Wednesday against Maryland-Eastern Shore (0-6), which is playing its sixth road game in seven.Cheap Basketball Shoes Australia .

LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. Discount Basketball Shoes Australia . -- The boos poured down on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the end of a horrible first half. Sale Nike Basketball Shoes .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check.NBA players are pushing for more money in the next collective bargaining agreement -- for the players who came before them.Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James, vice president of the NBPAs executive committee, told The Associated Press on Thursday the union has made getting aid for retired players a priority in their talks with NBA owners on a new deal.The NBA and its players have agreed that the next CBA will include new league-funded programs to help retired players with education and medical expenses, four people with knowledge of the situation told the AP. The people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because talks are ongoing.In exchange for those programs, and pending full approval from both sides, the split of basketball-related income would remain the same 50-50 deal as it is in the current agreement.Deciding on how to divvy up the revenue pie was the biggest obstacle that led to the ugly lockout five years ago. But with that issue essentially taken care of this time around, negotiations have gone much smoother as both sides look to reach an agreement on a new deal before the Dec. 15 deadline to opt out.For James, NBPA President Chris Paul and the rest of the union, taking care of those who are no longer playing is a worthy compromise for trying to recoup any of the financial ground lost during the 2011 labor dispute.We got a group of guys that are in there that know the negotiations, so any way to give back and try to help our former teammates and help former players and things of that nature, James said. Because weve all built this league together. No matter how big of a guy you were or if you were the 15th guy on the bench, we all built this league into what it is today. But its not just my idea. Im not taking any credit for that. But its all part of the process.Mike Glenn, a 10-year NBA veteran and a member of the National Basketball Retired Players Associations board of directors, said the CBA has dominated conversations among retirees for more than a year.Were very thankful to Chris Paul, LeBron and others who have provided the leadership to include us in the negotiations, and have the foresight to see that theyll be us in a couple of years, said Glenn, currently an Atlanta Hawks analyst for Fox Sports Southeast. There are so many guys with medical issues, who have had hip and knee replacements. With the cost of health care going up, it would be the biggest thing thats happened for retirees in 10 years.That process will resume next week when the league and the union meet ahead of the NBA Board of Governors meeting in New York, which begins on Oct. 20. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and union head Michele Roberts met in Spain earlier this month when the league had a preseason game there and they -- along with other members of the negotiating committee -- are preparing to return to the baargaining table with both sides in deal-making mode.ddddddddddddDuring the bitter negotiations of 2011 that resulted in the loss of 16 games for each team off of the schedule, the players ultimately accepted a decrease from 57 percent of basketball-related income to a band between 49 and 51 percent depending on a variety of economic factors for each particular season. After the league secured a new $24 billion television contract, franchise values skyrocketed. There was talk of the players opting out of the 10-year deal and seeking givebacks from the owners.But the talks between the owners and players this time around have been much more cordial. And there is a trust level that was absent from previous talks, a factor that was only strengthened when the owners agreed to the new programs that will help players after their careers come to an end.James stressed that the medical and education programs benefiting retirees were not his idea alone, but a collective decision from the union to seek help for the players that helped make the league what it is today. Now, with so much revenue flooding the system to the benefit of both sides, the dialogue appears to be centered on the greater good over dollars and cents.I just want to see the league continue to grow, thats all that matters to me, James said. The players are a huge, huge piece but we also know the owners have great minds as well, our commissioner is great, but our league, our logo, the Jerry West logo is probably the most well sought-out, admired logo in the world and weve got to figure out a way to keep it going, keep raising the bar. Thats my only concern.The new agreement is expected to include several other new elements as well, said the people with knowledge of the discussions.They said owners are pushing to give their teams more options to keep homegrown players in their organizations, a topic that came to the forefront after Kevin Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder to form a new super team in Golden State. One of the proposals, the people said, includes the possibility of adding a second five-year maximum contract. Currently, teams can only offer one five-year max contract, which can make it more difficult for teams to keep multiple stars happy.The people told AP new elements also include an increase in the rookie salary scale to fall more in line with the surging salary cap, which was first reported by Yahoo Sports. The people also say two-way contracts that would pay players less when they are in the NBDL and more when they are with their NBA teams -- a structure that has worked well in hockey for some time -- will be a part of the deal.---AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Independence, Ohio, contributed to this report.
