For North Carolina coach Roy Williams, establishing a physical tone is something he wants to see from his team during four games in Hawaii.That has started to happen during the fifth-ranked Tar Heels first three games, though too sporadically for the coach.I always look at how many points they got on offensive rebounds, Williams said, referring to opponents. Weve still got to do a better job on the backboards.North Carolina (3-0) meets Hawaii (2-1) on Friday night at the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu before three games next week in the Maui Invitational.You could say physical, but just overall a little bit more aggressive, swingman Justin Jackson said in describing the emphasis on rebounding.The Tar Heels have used various combinations in the first three games, something that should pay off across the season.Its just a work in progress and I think that Coach does it for a reason, forward Kennedy Meeks said.North Carolina and Hawaii are facing off for the first time since the mid-1990s. North Carolina has won all four previous meetings. The Rainbow Warriors are 2-18 all-time against teams ranked in the top 5.Hawaii has been in a pair of one-point results and a six-point decision during the first week of the season.Im really proud of our guys, theyve been thrown in the fire at even a higher magnitude because these were all close games, said second-year coach Eran Ganot, according to a Warrior Insider report. Im proud of the poise they showed in all three, even the first night when we lost. Our job is to get good shots at the end, and we did.Hawaii is led by UCLA transfer Noah Allen, a 6-foot-7 senior who averages 16.3 points per game.Ganot said the wear and tear of the opening stretch is something worth monitoring already.We got to go back to work, but right now, first we got to rest them (the players), he said. It always starts with us getting healed up, and refreshed. ... And then, obviously well be looking at North Carolina.North Carolina likely will play without forward Luke Maye on this trip because of a sprained ankle.The Tar Heels also wont have assistant coach Steve Robinson, whos staying behind because of a blood clot in his right leg.He has been advised to avoid travel. The former Florida State head coach also missed last weeks opener at Tulane.Robinson is in his 14th season on Williams North Carolina staff.Its uncomfortable for me, Williams said of Robinsons absence.While he was on the bench for two recent home games, Robinsons status for future road games is undetermined.I hate it because were not going to a place where theres 24 feet of snow and wind, Williams said of this trip. Its a nice place to go and weve had some good moments in the Maui tournament. We won a couple of them. But Ill miss him from a personal viewpoint, but he has got to take care of his body.When Robinson isnt with the team, director of basketball operations Brad Frederick has been cleared to serve as an assistant coach.Fridays game caps a tripleheader at the arena, with Rainbow Classic games preceding it.Enzo Perez Jersey .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the right time all season, and when High Point threatened to pull off a monumental upset the second-ranked Orange did what they do best with their quick hands and savvy play. Carlos Tevez Jersey . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a special gift tucked inside. http://www.argentinasoccerauthentic.com/Lionel-Messi-Copa-America-Jersey/ . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. Maxi Rodriguez Jersey . Varlamov made 33 saves and Ryan OReilly had a goal and scored in the shootout as the Avalanche beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night. Javier Pastore Argentina Jersey . The next step is a better finish. Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend.ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit receiver Golden Tate is back and the Lions are reaping the benefits.Tate, who struggled during the Lions 1/3 start, has played an important role in Detroits two-game winning streak, finishing with a career-high 165 receiving yards Sunday in a 31-28 win over the Rams. His 23-yard touchdown tied the score at 28-28 in the fourth quarter.Obviously, its great to see him have a big game, coach Jim Caldwell said Monday. He had a really fine game and you know hes capable of it. Hes a talented, talented guy. I anticipate hes going to have more of those.Tate never got discouraged, despite a rough opening four games in which he had 14 receptions for 95 yards and no touchdowns. He finished with one catch for one yard in Detroits 17-14 loss at Chicago in Week 4.Im kind of a forget-the-past guy, Tate said. Just keep grinding, keep working. I cant control when the ball will be thrown to me or what side (Matthew) Stafford is looking at. When my number is called, I can control from then on.The Lions have been calling his number more often. In the victory over Philadelphia two weeks ago, Tate had three catches for 39 yards, including a third-down reception that helped set up the game-winning field goal. He was targeted 10 times against the Rams, finishing with a season-high eight receptions.Tate, who averaged 20.6 yards per catch Sunday, also had a touchdown overturned in the third quarter when officials ruled he was down by contact near the end zone. The 61-yard reception set up Staffords scoring pass to Anquan Boldin two plays later, giving Detroit a 21-14 lead.With the Lions (3-3) potentially saving their season with two straight wins,, things dont get easier.dddddddddddd Detroit hosts Washington (4-2) on Sunday, and the Redskins enter on a four-game winning streak.The way we practiced the last two weeks, were hard to beat, Tate said. Every position played good, solid football (against the Rams). When we didnt, it was because of mental mistakes. Youve got to love that we kept our composure and kept fighting.Detroits turnaround has also quieted the rumors surrounding Caldwells job security, although the Lions coach was not patting himself on the back.The season is not over. Its not even close to being over, Caldwell said Monday. We have to do better this coming week, better than we were last week. If we dont, were going to have problems.All of Detroits games have been decided by seven points or fewer, including one-point and three-point wins the past two weeks.When games are really tight at the end, it takes a certain mindset that you dont get nervous, dont get out of whack, Caldwell said. Our guys are developing in that area. Its not necessarily something wed like to happen every single week, but well take it any way we can get it these days.Stafford has been pleased with the Lions ability to handle adversity.Whether its Week 1 in that situation that we had to come from behind and win (against Indianapolis), or these late fourth-quarter comebacks that we had these last couple weeks, we just seem to rise to the occasion, Stafford said. Thats the NFL and it comes down to the fourth quarter more often than it doesnt. Youve got to make the plays to win it. ' ' '
