SEATTLE -- The push to get a new NBA/NHL arena built in Seattles stadium district received a boost on Monday from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.Hes not just offering support. Wilson is becoming an investor.We couldnt be more thrilled that Russell is joining our partnership and continued efforts to bring the NBA and NHL back to Seattle, lead investor Chris Hansen said in a statement. As you are all aware, we have always kept our focus on doing this for the right reasons -- our love for our city, our love of basketball, and our belief that pro-sports has the ability to positively influence our youth and bring communities together in a way very few things in this world can.Details of Wilsons level of investment were not released, but he brings celebrity clout to a project that has seen progress and significant setbacks since it first started five years ago.Hansen has been the primary investor, with members of the Nordstrom family and former Seattle SuperSonics team president and minority owner Wally Walker also part of the investment group. Hansen called Wilson, A young, smart and passionate entrepreneur.Im blessed and excited to partner with Chris, Wally, Pete and Erik, and the greatest fans in all of sports to bring the SODO arena to our beloved city; there is no place like the Emerald City, Wilson said in a statement. The positive impact sports has on our kids and many generations to come, and bringing different cultures and people together is what motivates and inspires me.Hansen last month announced his intention to privately finance the proposed project in exchange for tax breaks. The offer would erase the public investment that was part of the original 2012 memorandum of understanding between Hansen and the city.The city has acknowledged Hansens intent while also opening a request for proposals for a possible renovation of KeyArena, the former home of the SuperSonics. The proposals are due in 2017.Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he was not surprised to hear of Wilsons involvement.He loves his community, Carroll said. I think hes interested in being part of something thats really special here. Tony Phillips Jersey .

Mark McGwire Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Glenn Hubbard Jersey . Pierce was ejected in the third quarter of Indianas 103-86 win Monday. George Hill stole a bad pass and was going in for a layup, and Pierce hustled back and appeared to be trying to wrap him up. The dismissal of three batsmen between the 30th and 33rd overs turned the course of the match and was a major cause of Sri Lankas three-wicket defeat to Australia in the first ODI according to Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews.Mathews himself had lost his wicket in that period, miscuing a James Faulkner ball to backward point, where he was brilliantly caught. His wicket was the second in a double-wicket maiden, and Mitchell Starc would soon strike to dismiss Dhananjaya de Silva as well. Having been 124 for 2, Sri Lanka slipped to 132 for 5, and the innings never really recovered.We were going pretty well at one point, Mathews said. But straight after Kusal Mendis got out, I got out, and then Dhananjaya got out. I thought that was a bit of a turning point. We needed a partnership with Dinesh Chandimal. Either me or Dhananjaya had to set it up for Thisara Perera and Milinda Siriwardana to go out there in the 43rd or 44th over and get those quick runs. It wasnt easy to get quick runs. The boundaries were 80 or 85 yards away. We needed to be scrappy, but unfortunately we were short 20 or 30 runs.The dry state of pitches has been a cause of mild controversy so far in this Australia tour, and the Khettarama surface for this match was criticised - both by Aaron Finch, who labeled it a poor pitch, but also by Mathews, who delivered a milder censure. Balls were seen to disturb the surface early in the match, and virtually every ball was raising dust by the finish. It was Australias seamers, who through a variety of slower balls, used the condditions better on this occasion.ddddddddddddThe pitch was a bit too dry I thought, Mathews said. It was hard work for the batters. It was stopping and gripping for the seamers slower ones, and it was turning square. With this kind of weather we knew it was going to turn, but it was a bit too dry. Its that type of wicket that Australias seamers will also come into play with their variations.Among those extracting dramatic turn from the surface was debutant left-arm spinner Amila Aponso, who spun several deliveries so sharply it wound up in the hands of Mathews at slip. He consistently threatened the outside edge of Australias right-handers, and finished with figures of 1 for 27 from his 10 overs. He was by a distance the most economical Sri Lanka bowler.I thought Amila bowled the best out of the lot, said Mathews, who used five slow bowlers in the match. Dilruwan Perera was steady, but the way Amila bowled was fantastic. This is actually the first time Im seeing him. He bowled extremely well and Im very pleased.Mathews said Aaron Finch, who hit seven fours and two sixes to make 56 from 46 balls, had set up the chase for Australia.He got a lot of runs against the new ball, and that would have been his plan, because when the ball gets a bit older - after 10 overs - it is not easy on this track. With the fielding restrictions and two men out of the ring, he scored quickly and fearlessly against our spinners. ' ' '
