NEW YORK -- Northwestern came into the Legends Classic off a last-second loss to Butler.It didnt seem to bother the Wildcats as they beat No. 22 Texas 77-58 on Monday night.Im really proud of my guys tonight. We had a very tough loss Wednesday in Hinkle Fieldhouse at Butler, Northwestern coach Chris Collins said. Teams can go two separate ways after a loss like that. You can go on a little bit of a tailspin or you can rally together and come out fighting. There was never a doubt in my mind that our guys were going to keep fighting. We came in confident, yet very respectful of Texas. We knew it was going to take a great effort to beat a team like that. I thought a lot of guys played well.Bryant McIntosh had 20 points and five assists in the convincing win that propelled the Wildcats (3-1) into a championship showdown against Notre Dame, which beat Colorado 89-81, on Tuesday night at Barclays Center.McIntosh turned the ball over that led to Butlers buzzer-beater.I thought right after the Butler game, I knew we wouldnt go into a tailspin just because we didnt feel sorry for ourselves, McIntosh said. We were upset that we lost a game that we thought we could win. Thats a difference with this team than on the other teams Ive been on since being here. If we lost a close game, we felt sorry for ourselves where this team were hungry. We think were good and I thought tonight we played exceptionally well.Northwestern opened the game with an 11-0 run and closed the first half on a 9-0 spurt to take a 34-26 lead.The Wildcats opened the second half on a 10-1 run to go up by 17 points and the Longhorns (3-1) were never closer than 14 points the rest of the way.Scottie Lindsey had 16 points and Dererk Pardon had 10 points and 11 rebounds for Northwestern which took advantage of an out-of-synch Texas offense for the easy win.We came in to win, Collins said. We have the utmost respect for Texas, just like we did at Butler the other night. I just think theres a mindset with these guys. I think we believe were good. I believe we can play with these teams, not only play with them but beat them.Tavin Mack scored 18 points for the Longhorns, who finished with 14 turnovers and just seven assists. Texas didnt help itself at the free throw line going 13 for 27.I thought Northwestern did a great job of starting the game with aggressiveness and got off to that big lead, Texas coach Shaka Smart said. Our guys responded really well and battled back and took the lead but obviously from there, Northwestern was just a much better team tonight.Northwestern, which shot 48.2 percent (27 for 56), led by as many as 20 points as nine of the 10 players who saw time scored.Texas, which came into the game averaging 82 points per game, shot 37.3 percent (19 for 51) and were outrebounded 40-31.I was a little bit concerned this morning because sometimes you can feel when guys get in the bright lights, you can tell theyre playing a little bit away from what really goes into it, Smart said. Its natural. I think we were a step off with a lot of things we know how to do.BIG PICTURE:Texas: The Longhorns allowed opponents to shoot 21.8 percent from 3-point range in their first three games. Northwestern was 10 of 24 (41.7 percent) from beyond the arc. ... Six Texas players were averaging double figures entering the game and only Mack reached that against the Wildcats.Northwestern: Vic Law came into the game shooting 76.8 percent (11 of 14) from 3-point range including eight in a row at one stretch. He went 1 for 2 Monday. ... Law was the Wildcats leading scorer at 20.3 points per game. He had just nine against Texas.BIRTHDAY WISH:McIntosh celebrated his birthday Sunday by heading to the famed Rucker Park with his godfather to shoot baskets.RARE MEETING:Northwestern leads the all-time series 2-1. The last time the teams met was in 1974, a 63-59 Texas victory. The first meeting was a 73-71 Northwestern victory in 1965.UP NEXT:Texas: will play Colorado for third place in the Legends Classic.Northwestern: will play Notre Dame in the championship game of the Legends Classic.

Jared Dudley Jersey .Y. - New Orleans forward Anthony Davis was chosen Friday to replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star game that will be played in his home city. WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Patrik Laine isnt nearly as excited to play against his boyhood idol as he used to be.The rookie Finnish phenom will line up against Alexander Ovechkin for the first time in his NHL career on Tuesday night at the MTS Centre, but its safe to say the excitement level is down considerably from last spring when he was so excited to be body-checked by Ovechkin at the world championships and joked about never washing his Team Finland jersey.Maybe he was tired, maybe he was down after losing to the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday, or maybe he was just playing possum. But Laine shrugged off the game as if it was any Tuesday night game in the middle of February.Ive played against him a couple of times. I dont really care. It doesnt matter to me. Hes a good player. One of the best goal scorers, he said.Contrast that with last May after the Finns beat the Russians to advance to the gold medal game against Team Canada.I wont wash this jersey ever because (Ovechkin) hit me, Laine said. It was nice to play against him, too, and its nice to know that top of the world players arent so far.The two players also met in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey in Toronto in September, a game won by the Russians.Laine, the No. 2 overall pick last spring in the entry draft, has been compared with Ovechkin by pundits on both sides of the Atlantic for more than a year. He has six goals and eight points in nine games.((Ovechkin) was a good goal scorer.dddddddddddd I just started watching players who can score. He was just so good and one of the best, Laine said. Now, Im just trying to be me and play my game. But Ive watched him a lot over the years.The Capitals arrive in Winnipeg with a two-game winning streak after two losses -- their record sits at 5-2-1 for third in the Metropolitan division -- and forward Marcus Johansson wants to keep the good times rolling.We never want to lose two in a row. You never want to lose at all, but its big for us to come back and get those points, Johansson said. Were never happy with losing and especially not when were not playing well. Thats two big wins for us and well just take it from there and move onto the next one. Were not happy yet.Goalie Braden Holtby said nobody in his dressing room was happy with the result in Edmonton last Wednesday -- a 4-1 loss -- but they took solace that the score flattered the Oilers. They rebounded Saturday against the Canucks for a 5-2 win.We had a couple good days in Vancouver. We played a really good game (there) and a really good back-to-back road game (in Calgary), he said of his teams 3-1 victory.Both the Jets and Caps will fly out after Tuesdays game in preparation for the rematch in Washington on Thursday.
