NEW YORK -- Top-ranked Notre Dame cruised to an easy win in its opener. The rest of the Top 25 didnt face much of a challenge either.That will change Monday night as eight of the top 12 teams in The Associated Press womens college basketball poll will square off against each other in four tasty early season matchups.The Irish won their first game by 60 points to remain the top choice in the poll released Monday, the first of the regular season. They received 14 first-place votes from a 33-member national media panel, holding on to their slim four-point lead over Baylor. Notre Dame hosts Fordham in the second round of the Preseason WNIT on Monday night.The Lady Bears, who garnered 12 first-place ballots, have a much tougher game as they host No. 9 UCLA. Third-ranked UConn visits No. 12 Florida State.In other games between top teams Monday, No. 4 South Carolina plays seventh-ranked Ohio State and eight-ranked Texas heads to 11th-ranked Stanford.There certainly are a lot of great games early on, UCLA coach Cori Close said in early November at a national media day held at ESPN. Teams are challenging themselves.The Huskies, who have won four straight national championships and 75 consecutive games, host Baylor on Thursday. Geno Auriemmas team will play six of the other top eight teams in the country over the course of the regular season.Somebody said, what are you thinking making that kind of schedule in November? Auriemma said last month. Well, Ive always been one that (doesnt) want any surprises come March. I want to go into March feeling like we put ourselves through a lot of tests. Were going to pass some and were going to fail some. How do you get tough? Sometimes you have to fail.Not many ranked teams failed in opening weekend as they went 28-1, with the loss coming when No. 19 Kentucky beat 14th-ranked Miami. The Wildcats moved up to 15 while the Hurricanes fell to 22.Throw that game out, and Top 25 teams won by an average of nearly 37 points. Custom Yankees Jersey China . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter.

The World Anti-Doping Agency provisionally suspended the Moscow Antidoping Center on Sunday, saying its operations must improve or a six-month ban on the facilitys accreditation will be imposed. Cheap Custom Yankees Jersey . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. DENVER -- Chad Bettis held his right fist aloft for a moment as the ovation from the crowd washed over him. He then tapped his chest and pointed toward the sky.Wow, the right-hander said, his immediate reaction after his best-ever performance.Bettis threw a two-hitter for his first career complete game, Carlos Gonzalez hit a grand slam as part of a six-run third and the Colorado Rockies beat the slumping San Francisco Giants 6-0 on Monday.Bettis (12-7) was perfect until Eduardo Nunez singled with two outs in the fifth inning. He struck out seven and walked none.After getting Angel Pagan on a grounder to end the game, he was almost in disbelief. The cheers were great. The hugs from teammates, too. Same with the water over the head.Its something thats once in a lifetime, Bettis said, before adding, hopefully, it occurs a little bit more.San Francisco intentionally walked Nolan Arenado to face Gonzalez in the third. Gonzalez lined a fastball from Matt Moore over the fence in right-center for his second grand slam of the season.Gonzalez understood the move. Arenado is one of the top run-producers in the league and the player nicknamed Cargo is in a funk.They took their chances. Didnt work, Gonzalez said. Good for us, bad for them.An erratic Moore (2-4 with Giants, 9-11 overall) allowed six runs in 2 2/3 innings -- his shortest outing of the season. He walked four and threw two wild pitches.I have to be a ton better than that, Moore said.Moore, who was acquired from Tampa Bay on July 31, had trouble with his release point in the third. He walked the first two batters of the inning, including Bettis when the pitcher tried to put down a bunt. That paved the way to the decisive inning.Two batters after Gonzalezs drive, Nick Hundley hit a solo homer to give the Rockies a 6-0 lead.The Giants had the best record in baseball at the All-Star break, but things have unraveled. Theyve gone a major league-worst 16-31 since then, lost their lead in the NL West and are now trying to hang on to a wild-card spot.Its time for us to wake up here, Giaants manager Bruce Bochy said.dddddddddddd We are better than this.Bettis was stellar in the best outing of his career, getting 15 groundball outs. He surrendered a leadoff double to Trevor Brown in the sixth, but worked his way out of the jam.The 27-year-old Bettis called this his best game in terms of feel for his pitches. He fell behind leadoff hitter Denard Span 3-0 to start the game, before getting him to ground, and was in command the rest of the way.He could throw any pitch for a strike at any time, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. That was outstanding by Chad.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: C Buster Posey received a day off after spending 13 innings behind the plate Sunday during a loss in Chicago against the Cubs. Ive got to keep an eye on these guys and keep them fresh, Bochy said.Rockies: OF Charlie Blackmon was out of the lineup for a third straight game with tightness in his lower back. ... Weiss isnt ruling out the return of rookie SS Trevor Story (torn ligament in left thumb) before the end of the season. Story has been on the DL since Aug. 2. If that happens, great, Weiss said. ... OF Ryan Raburn left the game in the sixth with a bruised left foot.A GRAND TIMEIt was Gonzalezs sixth grand slam with the Rockies, tying him with Dante Bichette and Andres Galarraga for second-most in team history, according to the Rockies. Todd Helton leads with seven.POWER STRUGGLEPart of the problem for the Giants has been a lack of power, with just 36 homers in the second half. Some of their better long ball hitters -- Brandon Crawford, Brandon Belt and Posey -- have gone a combined 243 at bats without leaving the yard.I cant explain it for you, Bochy said. Hopefully, that means well hit a few from this point on.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (11-9, 4.06 ERA) is 1-1 with a 2.30 ERA in two starts against Colorado.Rockies: LHP Tyler Anderson (5-5, 3.43 ERA) has allowed three or less runs in 12 of his 15 starts.
