Saint Louis will try to rebound Saturday

MOOSE JAW, Sask. Aaron Rodgers Packers Jersey . -- Moose Jaw, Sask., will host Canadas top womens curlers for the 2015 Scotties Tournament of Hearts. The Canadian Curling Association announced the site Wednesday for the Feb. 14-22 event at Mosaic Place, marking the first time the Saskatchewan city will host the Canadian womens championships. Its not the first time Mosaic Place has hosted world class curling, though -- the 2012 Capital One Canada Cup of Curling broke attendance records for the event at the 4,465-seat facility. "The 2012 Canada Cup was a shining example of a city supporting our sport and our curlers," CCA CEO Greg Stremlaw said in a release. For the first time, there will be a pre-qualifying event that will determine the final 12-team field for the Scotties. Fifteen teams -- the 14 member associations and the defending champion from the 2014 Scotties -- will be eligible to compete, meaning Northern Ontario will make its Scotties debut in Moose Jaw. Four teams will compete in the pre-qualifying round just before round-robin play begins to determine the final two entries. Moose Jaw has played host to several other major curling events, including the 1983 world womens championship, the 1979 world junior mens championship and the 1994 Canadian senior mens and womens championships. The 2014 Scotties Tournament of Hearts is Feb. 1-9 in Montreal. Bryan Bulaga Packers Jersey . Appleby had 17 saves in a 6-1 victory over the Victoriaville Tigres on Thursday before stopping 30 shots in a 6-2 win over the Acadie-Bathurst Titan on Sunday. Scott Tolzien Jersey . "I dont know if its about getting in their heads," Freeman said. "You just want to go out there and win series.ST. LOUIS -- The longest winning streak in Saint Louis history ended Thursday night with a surprising loss at home to Duquesne. That was hardly the most disappointing part of it as far as forward Dwayne Evans was concerned. "The streak didnt really mean much to us," Evans said. "Its a tough loss because theres a championship on the line, not just because it broke the streak." Micah Mason had 22 points and Jerry Jones added 19, leading Duquesne to a 71-64 victory. Saint Louis (25-3, 12-1 Atlantic 10) had won 19 straight since dropping a 70-65 decision on Dec. 1 to unbeaten Wichita State, now ranked No. 2 in the country. With a win, the Billikens could have clinched at least a tie for the Atlantic 10 regular-season title. But it was the Dukes who looked like title contenders Thursday. "They did a really nice job and we just didnt play well enough," Saint Louis coach Jim Crews said. "Weve played well and weve been fortunate. Tonight, we didnt play well enough. "We have no license that were going to win. One teams going to win and one teams going to lose. Whoever plays the best (wins). Thats how it is, and they played better than us." Mason, who entered leading the nation in 3-point shooting percentage (.554), hit four of five from behind the arc for Duquesne (12-15, 4-10), which beat a top-10 opponent on the road for the first time since defeating No. 6 Bradley 73-72 on March 5, 1962. Duquesne improved to 5-28 on the road against top 10 teams. The Dukes, who were 14-point underdogs, are 25-55 overall against teams ranked in the top 10. Although it looked like a mismatch on paper, Jones said he and the Dukes could feel this one coming. "Really, this team was ready to get beat and I just wannted to be a part of it and so did everybody else," he said. T.J. Lang Jersey. Evans had 10 points and 12 rebounds for Saint Louis. Mike McCall Jr. led the Billikens with 18 points, while Jordair Jett (13 points) and Rob Loe (12 points) also were in double digits. Saint Louis will try to rebound Saturday when it visits VCU. Crew said the team will not vary its approach after losing for the first time in nearly three months. "We do the same thing whether we win or lose," he said. "We just try to clean up what we did wrong. We address those things we did wrong, we keep working on our fundamentals and try to get better and move on with the next team. It doesnt make a difference win or lose. Our routine is pretty much the same." The Billikens appeared to be in good shape after Jetts layup with 13:44 remaining gave them a 42-35 lead. But the Dukes took command with an 18-2 run capped by a 3-pointer and then a layup by Jones that made it 53-44 with 7:41 left. Saint Louis fought back and had a chance to cut it to a one-possession game with under a minute remaining. Loe, however, missed a free throw and that led to Jones layup at the other end with 52 seconds left that made it 63-57. The Dukes played Saint Louis tough in their first meeting, losing 76-72 at home on Jan. 22. Duquesne was up for the challenge again Thursday and showed it early as Mason hit his first two shots from behind the arc to help the Dukes grab a 13-8 advantage. Mason was called for his second foul shortly thereafter and went to the bench, and the Billikens began to take advantage of his absence. Saint Louis went 1 for 7 from 3-point range in the first half, but Jake Barnetts 3 with 44 seconds left gave the Billikens a 29-25 halftime lead. ' ' '
