oved into 10th place on Iowas all-time scoring list w

EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Matt Harvey Jersey .J. -- Eli Manning will miss all of the New York Giants spring activities. General manager Jerry Reese said Thursday that Mannings left ankle surgery will keep him "out of spring ball." "We will not rush him back," Reese said. "We want him for the summer -- thats most important to us." Reese also expects Manning to bounce back from a poor season in which he led the NFL with 27 interceptions. "Eli is a smart guy. I think hes driven to prove last year was just an odd year for him," Reese added. Mannings primary backup last year, Curtis Painter, recently underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and is out for about a month. He could be back for the teams minicamp in June. Reese expects heavy competition for the backup quarterback job among Painter, last years draft pick Ryan Nassib, and Josh Freeman, signed in April as a free agent. Nassib did not throw a pass in his rookie season after the Giants selected him in the fourth round. "Well take a real good look at him," Reese said. "He didnt have the chance to play. Hell get a lot of work this spring." Reese was far less steadfast on third-year running back David Wilson, who comes off neck surgery. The Giants signed free agent Rashad Jennings away from Oakland, and the veteran entering his sixth NFL season could be the starter. "David Wilson is really kind of a bonus for us if we can get him back," Reese said. "Hes on schedule to be back." New York also picked up the fifth-year contract option on cornerback Prince Amukamara, the teams top selection in 2011. That move needed to be made by Saturday. Amukamara has been inconsistent as a pro and plagued by injuries. The Giants brought in cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Walter Thurmond as free agents. Scooter Gennett Jersey . Ramirez is still hitting behind Puig, only now they are in the third and fourth spots, and the change is starting to generate positive results for manager Don Mattingly. Adam Duvall Jersey . -- Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe was alert and recovering at a Denver hospital Saturday after suffering seizure-like symptoms when the teams bus pulled into the airport Friday afternoon for the flight to Kansas City.IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Roy Devyn Marbles hot shooting at the start sparked his teammates. It even helped his defence. Marble scored 22 of his 26 points in the first half and No. 17 Iowa beat No. 10 Michigan 85-67 on Saturday. Marble even drew the defensive assignment on Nik Stauskas for much of the game, holding the Wolverines leading scorer to 10 points. Iowa coach Fran McCaffery called it his teams best performance of the season. "I just wanted to come out and be aggressive," Marble said. "I just told the guys come out here and play hard. If we win, we win, if we lose, we lose. But you wont be able to doubt our lack of toughness and our energy on both ends of the court." The Hawkeyes (18-6, 7-4 Big Ten) have beaten two AP Top 10 teams in the regular season for the first time since 1990-91. Iowa avoided a third straight loss at home and split the season series with Michigan. Caris LeVert scored 22 points for the Wolverines (17-6, 9-2), who have lost two of three after starting 8-0 in the Big Ten. Iowas Aaron White had 11 points and eight rebounds. Mike Gesell had 10 points and matched a career high with eight assists -- five on Marbles baskets. Marble was 6 of 9 from 3-point range in the first half -- more 3s than the Hawkeyes made as a team the last five games. Iowa, which ranks next to last in the Big Ten in 3-point field goals, finished 10 of 17 from behind the arc. "When Dev got hot, I was just finding him and finding my shooters," Gesell said. "Its really not that hard of a job when you have guys that can score like that." In the seasons first matchup of these teams, Stauskas tied a career high with 26 points. McCaffery said Iowa was locked into collectively stopping Stauskas, who was held to 3-of-6 shooting on Saturday. "They made a lot of adjustments," Stauskas said. "They did things on our ball screens and hhandoffs, which made things difficult. Scott Feldman Jersey. They denied me the ball and when I did try to drive all their guys were in the gaps." The Hawkeyes led by as many as 16 points in the first half as Marble connected on three 3-pointers for Iowas first nine points. Later in the half, Marbles sharp crossover led to a quick layup. Marble knocked down another 3-pointer on the next possession, turning to salute the sellout crowd at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Marble hit two more 3-pointers at the end of the half -- one just before the buzzer -- to give Iowa a 43-29 lead. Michigan never got closer in the second half. "Iowa punched us early today, and it was hard to respond," Michigan coach John Beilein said. "This is how they were playing early in the season no matter who they were playing." Marbles 22-point first half ended a stretch of bad starts for the Hawkeyes leading scorer. He scored five points or less in the first half in five of Iowas last six games, including two scoreless halves. Marble finished 8 of 17 from the field and made all four of his free throws. He moved into 10th place on Iowas all-time scoring list with 1,529 points. The Hawkeyes are 6-0 in games following a loss this season. Freshman Zak Irvin scored 19 points for Michigan, going 4 of 6 from 3-point range. The Wolverines, who fell a half-game behind Michigan State in the Big Ten standings, next play at Ohio State with home games against Wisconsin and Michigan State to follow. Iowa dominated in the post with 34 points in the paint and seven blocked shots. The Hawkeyes grabbed 38 rebounds to Michigans 29. "To beat Michigan, you have to play the kind of defence we played," McCaffery said. "They have so many different weapons so it was not only getting stops, it was getting stops and then running and getting offensive opportunities in transition." Cheap Colombia Jerseys Cheap England Jerseys Cheap Spain Jerseys Cheap France Jerseys Cheap Belgium Jerseys Cheap Argentina Jerseys Cheap Portugal Jerseys Cheap Brazil Jerseys Wholesale Mexico Jerseys Wholesale Colombia JerseysCheap Germany Jerseys Cheap Mexico Jerseys Wholesale Belgium Jerseys Wholesale Mexico Jerseys Wholesale Portugal Jerseys Wholesale Germany Jerseys Wholesale Brazil JerseysWholesale France Jerseys Wholesale Argentina Jerseys Cheap England Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Colombia Jerseys ' ' '
