MINNEAPOLIS -- Freshman Amir Coffey scored 10 points, all in the second half, and Minnesota came from behind to beat Texas-Arlington 84-67 on Monday night. Chad Johnson Jersey .Reggie Lynch, in his first year with Minnesota after transferring last season, scored 14 points. Jordan Murphy added 11 points and 12 rebounds and five Gophers in all scored in double figures.I think it just shows, we got a long way to go obviously, but this is not last years team, Minnesota coach Richard Pitino said. Its very evident. Its a totally different team with much more balance and depth.The Gophers (2-0) trailed the final eight minutes of the first half against the preseason Sun Belt Conference favorite Mavericks (1-1).But Coffey and Lynch ignited Minnesota in the second half. Minnesota used a 22-1 run to take control as Texas-Arlington missed its first 12 shots of the half and had a scoring drought of over six minutes.We were just out there playing free and guarding the 3, which was the biggest problem in the first half, Lynch said.Jalen Jones scored 17 points and Erick Neal added 12 for Texas-Arlington. The Mavericks pulled out road wins at Ohio State and Memphis last season, and appeared primed to pull another upset against the Gophers.Texas-Arlington hit 9 of 18 3-pointers in the first half but just one in the second half.I think our guys, to be honest, it looks to me like they lost a little bit of that chip on their shoulder, grit, coach Scott Cross said. Its a learning lesson for us. I guess Id rather learn a lesson now than in conference, and hopefully our guys will be better.BIG PICTURETexas-Arlington: The Mavericks return all five starters from last season and are testing themselves with a tough nonconference schedule. When the shots were falling, Texas-Arlington showed it can still hang with major conference opponents.Minnesota: The Gophers got the test coach Richard Pitino was seeking for his new-look squad. Coffey had eight of his points during Minnesotas second-half run and added two steals. The 6-foot-10 Lynch gives the Gophers an option down low.STAT OF THE NIGHTThe Mavericks led the nation in rebounding last year with an average of 43.71 per game. The Gophers had a 47-32 rebounding advantage on Monday and scored 22 points off offensive rebounds.Our guys have to change their mentality a little bit, Cross said. We have to get that hard-hat, blue-collar attitude that we had ... to get outrebounded the way we did is disappointing.QUICK COMPAREThe game was bogged down at times due to personal fouls, particularly in the second half. Minnesota extended its lead from the free-throw line where it made 30 of its 40 attempts. The Mavericks went to the line 22 times, hitting 13 free throws.Thats got to be our identity, Pitino said. We may not be a 10-3s-a-game team. Thats OK, we can still win in other ways.UP NEXTTexas-Arlingtons three-game road trip continues at Florida Gulf Coast on Wednesday and on to another major conference foe in Arkansas on Friday. Florida Gulf Coast will be playing only its second game of the season after opening with an 80-59 loss to Florida.Minnesota remains home on Wednesday against Mount St.-Marys. Its a matchup of two schools with very different schedules. Minnesota plays its first six games at home and 12 of the first 14. Mount St. Marys starts the season with nine straight road games. Rene Robert Jersey . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. Rick Martin Jersey . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . http://www.cheapsabresjerseys.com/?tag=adidas-dale-hawerchuk-jersey . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. Before coach Mike McCarthy sent Eddie Lacy home for the summer, he issued something of a warning to the Green Bay Packers running back.In so many words, he said he hoped Lacy wouldnt revert to his old habits during the break before training camp.It appears Lacy listened.According to a source, the Packers running back reunited this summer with trainer Tony Horton, the P90X founder who worked out Lacy shortly after last season after McCarthy gave him an ultimatum to lose weight.Last month, McCarthy said he hoped Lacy goes with the plan that he used this year as opposed to last year when asked about Lacys summer workout plans. Lacy spent two months with Horton in both Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and in Los Angeles after McCarthy said the running back cannot play at the weight he was at [last] year.Horton put Lacy through a variety of workouts, including plyometrics, yoga, cardio, basketball and boxing.Following those workouts, Lacy returned to Green Bay in April for the offseason program and was 155 to 18 pounds lighter, a source said at the time. Jordan Nolan Jersey. However, McCarthy indicated that Lacys work might not be done.Eddie will be fine, McCarthy said in May. I believe hell hit the target that were all looking for when the lights come on.Horton previously told ESPN.com that he would like to continue to work with Lacy once the Packers offseason program ended in June but at the time it was unclear whether his schedule would allow it.Ideally, what Id like to do -- hed have to be in LA for it to work -- but Id like to see him play [basketball] one day, [go to] boxing class one day and I could work with him for three as opposed to six or seven like before, Horton said at the time. It would give him more freedom, and the beautiful thing is he wouldnt have to relearn everything again. I would really love the plyometric day and the cardio was essential for him. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
