IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Brady Ellingson hopes this early scoring outburst cements his role as Iowas sharpshooter off bench.Ellingson scored 21 of his career-high 23 points in the first half, Cordell Pemsl added 18 points and nine rebounds and Iowa breezed to a 116-84 win over Savannah State on Sunday.The Hawkeyes (2-0) made a school-record 18 3-pointers and led by at least 20 points the entire second half. Iowas 116 points are the most in Fran McCafferys six seasons as coach and tied for the seventh most in program history.Ellingson hit 4 of 6 3-pointers -- a much-needed confidence boost after a rough start to his college career. The sophomore guard battled a foot injury during a redshirt season two years ago and was in and out of the rotation last season because of inconsistent play.(My confidence) was really high, Ellingson said. I was really open, so I got to set my feet.Troyce Manassa had 14 points and 11 rebounds for Savannah State (0-2), which committed 20 turnovers.Tyler Cook scored 14 points and Peter Jok had 13 for the Hawkeyes. Nicholas Baer added nine points and a career-best six assists. Iowas bench scored 76 points -- led by Ellingson.The Hawkeyes were out-rebounded in the first half, but came back to edge the Tigers 52-40 on the boards.Iowa has won 39 of its last 40 non-conference home games.BIG PICTUREIowa: Pemsl wasnt the most prolific recruit in McCafferys freshman class, but hes clearly going to be a factor off the bench for Iowa. At 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds, Pemsl is strong, but he has a great handle around the rim. Pemsl made all seven of his field goal tries and converted four and-one opportunities.Hes just a really skilled big man, McCaffery said. He has an innate ability to make a decision in traffic.Savannah State: The Tigers have allowed 113 and 116 points in their first two games. They mixed up man and zone defenses against Iowa -- neither were very effective. Savannah State had the best scoring defense in the MEAC last season, but it lost four starters from that team.STAR WATCHJok never got into a shooting rhythm against the Tigers, finishing 5 of 15 from the floor. The senior made only one of his first six shot attempts.This was two days after Jok scored 27 points against Kennesaw State -- the most by a Hawkeye in a season opener since Adam Haulskas 29 against The Citadel in 2006. Joks 27 points was also the most by a Big Ten player among Fridays games.HE SAID ITWe would have preferred a little more of a mixture of penetration, but we have good 3-point shooters, McCaffery said. And we were open.The Hawkeyes attempted a school-record 43 3-pointers. Iowa made just 7 of 22 3s in Fridays opener.UP NEXTIowa faces its first real challenge of the season on Thursday against Seton Hall (2-0) as part of the Big Ten- Big East series.Savannah State plays Middle Georgia State in its home opener on Thursday before another tough test at Memphis next weekend. wholesale nfl jerseys china .

The Seminoles (4-0) have scored at least 80 points in each of their games. ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia freshman Jacob Eason is proving he can be trusted in the closing minutes.In fact, the young quarterbacks best play has come in high-pressure situations late in games, providing confidence that will be needed in Saturdays visit from No. 8 Auburn.Coach Kirby Smart said Eason showed impressive poise when he led the Bulldogs to a last-second 27-24 win at Kentucky last week. Eason completed each of his four passes on the game-winning drive that began with less than three minutes remaining. Georgia won on Rodrigo Blankenships 25-yard field goal as time expired.Following the game, Smart said Eason does not feel pressure. Thats just the kid. He has a very calm demeanor, which is what you want a quarterback to have.Easons first late game-winning drive came at Missouri early in the season. He also threw a go-ahead 47-yard touchdown pass to Riley Ridley with only 10 seconds remaining against Tennessee. That dramatic pass became a footnote when the Vols won the game with a Hail Mary pass.Hes a kid that the more he plays in a game, I think the more confident he gets, Smart said Monday.Georgia (5-4, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) had lost four of five, including two straight, before the win at Kentucky. Auburn (7-2, 5-1, No. 9 CFP) will be playing to preserve its SEC championship hopes and shot at making the playoffs.It hasnt been a smooth first season for Eason, who has started the last eight games.After winning the starting job from senior Greyson Lambert, Eason hasnt always played as well as in some late-game pressure situations. He has completed 145 of 272 passes for 1,754 yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions.Smart said Eason hhas got a long way to go.dddddddddddd.Hes got to improve, Smart said. Hes got to improve communication, decision making ... but I certainly think these opportunities at the end of the game give him a chance to show leadership and gain the confidence of the other players.Eason has not been made available to speak with reporters this season.Eason may have found a new favorite target. Javon Wims, a junior college transfer, set career highs with five catches for 90 yards against Kentucky. Wims (6-4, 215) gives Eason a tall and physical target. Wims showed his big-play potential on a 51-yard catch.Wims said he is developing a bond with Eason. He said they are just getting to know each other as friends and teammates.We both are very goofy guys, Wims said. The connection has been growing a lot stronger. Hes trusting me a lot more to make plays if he throws me the ball.Wims said last weeks game-winning drive was important for Eason.We are tremendously confident in Jacob, Wims said. He has been improving each and every week. Hes been practicing better and weve been developing better timing with him. Its going to boost his confidence going forward.Game notes Smart said S Kirby Choates, listed as the top backup to Dominick Sanders, is focusing on academics right now. Choates has missed the last four games. ... Smart said WR Jayson Stanley will miss the game with a foot injury. He said DT DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle is questionable after missing the Kentucky game with an ankle injury.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL T-shirts Discount Jerseys Wholesale NFL Gear Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping China Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic ' ' '
