NEW YORK -- Michael Young sounded like a grizzled veteran and he made sure his teammates listened. Adidas NMD R1 .At halftime it was just a look yourself in the mirror type of moment, he said of Pittsburghs 11-point halftime deficit that would reach 15 points. We lost the first game due to (SMU) being tougher than us down the stretch. We came in the second half and it was now or never.Now won out.Young scored a career-high 30 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead Pittsburgh to a 78-75 victory over Marquette on Friday in the third-place game of the 2K Classic Benefiting Wounded Warrior Project.Young, a senior forward whose previous career-high was 27 points as a sophomore against Chaminade, brought the Panthers (3-1) back from that 15-point deficit and he did it almost by himself.With Marquette (2-2) leading 59-49 with 13:51 to play, the 6-foot-9 Young scored the games next 10 points, almost all on inside baskets.Back up against the wall, you just got to fight, Young said. Me being a senior, Jamel being a senior, just going into the game I told him its now or never. After the second half we cant get this game back. We cant get no more games back. Every game our senior year matters. Just to give it my all and just really be aggressive and kind of lead my team.First-year Pitt coach Kevin Stallings said of Young: He can carry us and he does.From the 59-all tie with 10:36 to play there would be four lead changes and three ties. Pitt took the lead for good on a free throw by Jamel Artis with 1:03 left and he added two more free throws with 5.6 seconds left for the final margin.It was awesome, Artis said of Youngs run. Me and him, we got to be the load every night, bring the energy offensively and defensively. To watch him go out there make his 10-0 run was awesome for us because we needed it at the time.Andrew Rowseys 3-pointer at the buzzer bounced off the rim.Artis finished with 21 points and seven rebounds for the Panthers while Chris Jones added 13 points.Rowsey, who came into the game with a total of two points on the season, had 20 for the Golden Eagles, while Duane Wilson and Sam Hauser had 11 each.The Golden Eagles closed the first half on a 14-6 run to take a 44-33 lead and then scored the first four points of the second half for the games biggest lead.. .You cant have 50-point halves scored against you and win in college basketball, Marquette coach Steve Wojciechowski said. You never have been able to and you never will be able to. We had two halves of basketball, one in each game where we gave up essentially 50 points. Give credit to the team we played but our defense has to improve.BIG PICTUREPittsburgh: The Panthers bounced back from a 76-67 loss to SMU in the opening round. ... Stallings has seemed to fit in well with a veteran team recruited by Jamie Dixon. ...The Panthers averaged 86.3 points over their first three games and with Young averaging 22 and Artis 19, the two accounted for 48 percent of the teams points.Marquette: The Golden Eagles were blown out 79-61 by Michigan in the opening round. ... Marquette is having a hard time filling the void in the middle after freshman Henry Ellenson left after his freshman year for the NBA.OLD FOESPittsburgh and Marquette were members of the Big East together for eight seasons until the Panthers left for the Atlantic Coast Conference. The all-time series is tied 9-9 as Marquette had a three-game winning streak against the Panthers snapped.ROUSING ROWSEYRowsey came into the game having made 1 of 7 from the field, including missing five 3-point attempts in the first three games. He was 5 for 12 from the field Friday and e was 3 of 7 from behind the arc.Rowsey was kind of the guy who was creating a lot of offense so we wanted the ball in his hands at the end of the game, Wojciechowski said. We got the ball to the rim. We got a wide open shot. We just didnt make it.UP NEXT:Pittsburgh: The Panthers head home for games with Yale and Morehead State before facing Maryland in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.Marquette: The Warriors are home for three games against IUPUI, Houston Baptist and Western Carolina. Herre/Dame Puma x Rihanna Leadcat Fenty Fur Slide Hvit . - Chris Tierney snapped a tie with a power-play goal late in the third period as the London Knights rallied from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Erie Otters 5-3 in Ontario Hockey League action on Wednesday. Adidas Ultra Boost Dame .

Wieters had asked for $8.75 million and the Orioles had offered $6. As Muslim women, we wear our religion physically. When we walk outside, people know that were Muslim. And when a Muslim makes the news, it makes people want to know why she has that on -- what her religion is.Its amazing to see that Muslim women are the ones breaking stereotypes about our religion. I think it brings a lot of positivity, especially in our community. We need it. Especially now.When I was earning my masters degree at Indiana State two years ago, I had to do a project on an athlete who I thought was making a difference socially. One who was standing her ground. I choose Ibtihaj Muhammad. I felt like I related to her in a lot of ways -- as an athlete myself, and a Muslim as well.A year later, I met Ibtihaj at a conference in Los Angeles, and we spent a lot of time getting to know each other. We shared how hard it was to be different at times -- being the first Muslim women to be on the forefront of our sports -- and how hard it was to uphold a certain image and still stay faithful to what we believe in. Before I met her, I felt like I was the only one.At the time, I was going through a shift in my life where I couldnt play the sport that I loved because of my religion. I was unable to continue my pro career because of my hijab. I was planning to go overseas and play basketball under FIBA rules. But FIBA has a headgear rule right now that says I couuld hurt somebody wearing my scarf. Adidas NMD XR1 Primeknit. .I was questioning faith. I was questioning who I was. Basketball was my life.?Now, to see Ibtihaj make such a difference this summer by becoming the first Muslim woman to represent the U.S. at the Olympics wearing hijab ...It is a beautiful thing.Sharing our experiences was gratifying because I felt like I had a release. I could let go of my feelings. And it kept me level to know that shes been strong, and that I can do the same.The barriers that shes breaking -- being in the Olympics, winning a medal -- its a motivation. Its an inspiration. I live vicariously through her.Sport brings unity and can effect change, so I believe this is huge -- not only for Muslims, but for anybody that doesnt fit the norm.More on Ibtihaj Muhammad?
