    SEATTLE -- Markelle Fultz walked into the room Wednesday and was immediately engulfed. Cheap Grey Air VaporMax .Of all the eventual NBA players Washington coach Lorenzo Romar has brought into his program over the past 15 years, none came in matching the talent or hype that Fultz brings as a freshman.Here at the University of Washington, coming in the door, I think hes the best, Romar said.Washingtons first regular-season game is still a month away, but the buzz surrounding Fultz -- a 6-foot-4 guard -- has been building for months. Whether its because of his performance as part of the U.S. national team at the under-18 FIBA Americas tournament in July in Chile or during Washingtons summer overseas tour of Australia and New Zealand, Fultz is the focal point for the Huskies as the season draws closer.Futlz arrives at Washington as perhaps the most decorated recruit ever. When Romar first made contact with Fultz, he was regarded as a top prospect, but not among the elite of his recruiting class. By the time he plays his first regular-season game for the Huskies on Nov. 13 against Yale, Fultz will step on the court as a presumptive top 5 pick in next Junes NBA draft.He understands the attention. So do his teammates.Markelle is impressive. He does things in practice where we might be on the sidelines or something and Ill look over at someone and be like, `Did he just do that? Is that real life? forward Matisse Thybulle said. Hes a special player.A year ago, Washington was an unknown because of its youth. And while the Huskies group of freshmen grew up quickly, there were still enough mistakes made that another March came and went without an NCAA Tournament appearance. The Huskies finished 19-15 and lost in the second round of the NIT. It was the fifth straight season the Huskies missed the NCAA Tournament, increasing the external debate over Romars future.For his part, Romar said its not pressure hes feeling, but anticipation about how this year could play out.We want to get to that tournament. We want to be the best that we can be. We cant wait for practice. I dont define pressure that way, Romar said. Ready to get going. We get another shot at this now, were going to make this happen. Thats how I feel.The Huskies lost their top three scorers from a year ago with the graduation of guard Andrew Andrews (20.9 points per game), and the early departures of first-round NBA picks Dejounte Murray (16.1) and Marquese Chriss (13.7). No returning player averaged more than Noah Dickersons 7.5 points per game.But Romar is confident the scoring void will be filled by others. Fultz will clearly take his share, with others like Malik Dime, David Crisp and Dominic Green expected to increase their contributions from a year ago.I think we can have more guys averaging double figures than weve had in probably the last five years, Romar said. There are guys that are capable of stepping up. Air VaporMax Shoes For Sale . The news was first reported on Gonzalezs Twitter account and confirmed by the Rockies. Gonzalez has a six-week window before position players have their first workout at spring training in Arizona. Air VaporMax 2018 Black and White .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. .2 billion agreement with Rogers Communications for the leagues broadcast and multimedia rights. Of all Jacksonvilles offensive issues this season, the most glaring one has been a lack of big plays.The winless Jaguars are one of just two NFL teams (the New York Jets are the other) that have yet to gain 40 yards on any play.We have had our opportunities with big plays, coach Gus Bradley said. We are just not connecting on them. You still see it. You see the shots being taken. The opportunities are there. We are just not finishing on them.This could be the week Jacksonville turns it around.When the Jaguars (0-3) play AFC South rival Indianapolis (1-2) in London on Sunday, they should find plenty of chances for explosive plays. The Colts rank near the bottom of the league in several defensive categories, including yards allowed. So if Jacksonville is going to have a breakthrough performance, it could happen Sunday.Weve had three opportunities to go play and it hasnt been obviously what we wanted offensively, quarterback Blake Bortles said. But that doesnt mean for a second that weve lost the confidence as an offense or lost who we are and what we believe we should do. I think our bar and our standard is still at the same level, and we just havent been able to reach it yet.So its still there and thats what this week is for. Its to be able to go out and prepare and get ready and go reach those expectations that we have of ourselves in London.Playing at Wembley Stadium for the fourth consecutive year, the Jags hope to take advantage of the familiar surroundings by having a routine for traveling more than 4,000 miles from home and not being awestruck with the city or venue.Indianapolis, meanwhile, is making its first trip across the pond.Its a divisional game, so this game counts double, Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton said. For us, we know the easiest way into the tournament is to win your division. Its a big game. Why? Because its your next game, but at the end of the day, this game counts double.It really could be huge for Bradley, who is 12-39 in four seasons and surely has to be running out of chances to get Jacksonville on a winning track.More big plays would help Bradleys cause.With receivers Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns leading the way in 2015, explosive plays were a staple of Bradleys game plan. Only Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants, Pittsburghs Antonio Brown and Buffalos Sammy Watkins had more receptions of at least 40 yards last year than Robinson, who led the NFL with 31 catchees of at least 20 yards. Cheap Nike Air VaporMax. The Jaguars insist opponents are doing more to take away Robinson, doubling him on some downs and keeping a safety over the top on others. They moved the Pro Bowler around more last week against Baltimore and he ended up with two touchdowns catches.But the deep balls were missing -- again.Our guys arent going to look at that and I am not going to look at that and our coaches certainly arent going to look at numbers, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. Weve had our fair share of those big plays with this offense against us, and were not going to get lulled to sleep by numbers. And certainly we know this is an explosive offense and an explosive group of wideouts and a talented, talented quarterback that can get them the ball, so were going to prepare accordingly.Other things to know about the Colts and Jaguars as they play the first of four NFL international games in 2016:MOVING ON UP: If the Colts get their ground game working, running back Frank Gore could have quite a celebration in London . He needs 19 yards to pass Hall of Famer Marcus Allen, 22 yards to pass Colts career rushing leader Edgerrin James, 55 yards to pass Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk, and 88 yards to pass Hall of Famer Jim Brown on the NFLs career rushing list. And if he tops that, he could end Indys 53-game streak without a 100-yard rusher -- the longest in the NFL.PROTECT AND PROTECTING: Throughout the offseason, Indianapolis kept talking about protecting Andrew Luck. Luck kept talking about taking care of the ball. Both still seem to be problems. In three games, Luck has been sacked nine times and has taken 25 additional hits. Meanwhile, after a solid season opener, Luck has accounted for four turnovers in the last two games -- three of which were returned for touchdowns.TAKING Game notes With Jacksonville scheduled to play annually in London through at least 2020, the Jaguars will keep a close eye on how the Colts handle playing overseas and returning home without an immediate bye week. Indy hosts Chicago next week. Well see how they do with it, Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said. Id like to get information. Its not something that I wanted to be the first person to try.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: 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 ' ' '
