The Bucks lost despite shooting 48.8 per cent to Charlottes 40.6 per cent.

One of the top Canadian linemen is calling it quits. Chris Chelios Jersey . Calgary Stampeders offensive guard Dimitri Tsoumpas announced his retirement in a team release on Wednesday. The 27-year-old will stay with the Stampeders as a strength and conditioning assistant. Tsoumpas was a four-time West Division All-Star and three-time CFL All-Star after being selected second overall by the Stamps in 2008. The Weber State product missed most of the 2013 season with a concussion. "I love football and Ive thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Stampeders, so this is a very difficult decision for me to make," Tsoumpas said in a team release. “Ive fully recovered from the concussion that I suffered last season but because of the lengthy and difficult recovery period, I just feel that I needed to err on the side of caution and put an end to my playing career." "Dimitri was a pillar of our offensive line from the day he arrived in Calgary and I thank him for everything he has done for the Stampeders on and off the field over the past six seasons,” Stampeders head coach and general manager John Hufnagel in a team release. “His play in the trenches and his strength of character will be greatly missed. I know this wasnt an easy decision for Dimitri and I am very pleased that he has chosen to remain with the club as a strength and conditioning assistant.” Along with his All-Star nods, Tsoumpas was also the teams nominee for Most Outstanding Rookie in 2008, Most Outstanding Canadian in 2009, and Most Outstanding Lineman in 2012. Glenn Hall Jersey . He just didnt expect them to be this good. Darrun Hilliard scored 19 points to lead No. 6 Villanova to a dominating 77-59 victory over Georgetown on Saturday, preserving the Wildcats hopes of a No. Henri Jokiharju Jersey . The veteran fighter will be squaring off with Henderson in a five-round lightweight bout as part of another network televised card at the United Center on Saturday night. http://www.officialblackhawksauthori...s-jersey-c-50/ . Calgary finished atop the CFL standings with a 14-4 record and earned the right to host the West Division final at McMahon Stadium on Nov.CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Kemba Walker didnt waste any time at all providing the Charlotte Hornets with a return on their investment.One night after agreeing to a four-year, $24 million contract extension, the diminutive guard knocked down two huge shots, including the 21-footer from the top of the key with 5 seconds left in overtime to lift Charlotte to a 108-106 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.Walker scored a game-high 26 points and gave fans more reason to celebrate on a night when they welcomed the Hornets name back to the city after a 12-year absence.Walker struggled in the early going hitting just 2 of 8 shots in the first quarter and was just 9 of 26 for the game.But he came up big when the team needed him most, swishing a tying 3-pointer with 1.6 seconds left in regulation to send the game into overtime and help the Hornets erased a 24-point third-quarter deficit and cap the largest comeback in Charlottes NBA history — Hornets or Bobcats.I was so high on adrenaline that I couldnt calm down, Walker said of his slow start. I was so anxious to be out there and the crowd was so into it. I was trying my best but it just wasnt working out for me. Those last couple of shots I finally really did relax.Walker battled through cramps in his right foot, but kept on playing.Hes courageous, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said. I asked him if he was good and he said, Ill make one more play. And he did.Marvin Williams had 19 points, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 17 and Al Jefferson finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds for Charlotte.Lance Stephenson had seven points, 13 rebounds and eight assists in his Hornets debut and provided a boost after the Hornets fell behind 74-50 and the crowd starting booing.I would have booed, too, Walker said. I know it was tough to watch for those guys. We werent playing any defence and lot of things werent going our way.The Bucks were led by Brandon Knight, who had 22 points and 13 assists.Khris Middleton had a chance to put the Bucks up by four points with 7.1 second left, but made only 1 of 2 foul shots setting up Walkers big 3.After Middleton made his second free throw, Walker took the inbounds pass, weaved through traffic and pulled up well beyond the 3-point arc. He elevated through his shot as fans in the lower section rose frrom their seats in unison, almost willing the ball into the basket. Patrick Kane Jersey. he Bucks couldnt get a shot off at the end of regulation.Bad teams lose these types of games and this is something we are going to have to get over all year, said Bucks forward Jared Dudley.STEPHENSONS NIGHT:Stephenson got off to a rough start missing his first six shots and failing to score until the 5:49 mark of the third quarter. But a high-flying dunk over Larry Sanders in the lane seemed to ignite the flamboyant swingman, who quickly helped the Hornets trim the lead to 15 entering the fourth quarter. Stephenson, who is battling a groin injury, left the game twice in the final few minutes because of cramping in his leg.If I aint scoring Im going to do other things, Stephenson said. Im going to pass to my teammates, rebound, play a little defence and just help us win. I struggled on the offensive end and Im going to get it together and just keep playing hard.PARKERs NBA DEBUT:The Bucks finished with the worst record in the league last year and wound up drafting Jabari Parker from Duke with the No. 2 overall pick. Parker finished with eight points in his first NBA game.It was everything I expected, two great teams going down to the wire, Parker said. The better team won today but were going to get better.TAYLOR PLEADS GUILTYHornets forward Jeffery Taylor pleaded guilty Wednesday to a domestic violence charge and admitted he pushed his girlfriend at a hotel in Michigan.
