The NBL has signed a deal to broadcast every game of the 2016-17 season in China, paving the way for a Chinese team to eventually join the league. John Johnson Womens Jersey.In what the NBL has described as a first for Australian sport, the games will stream live on Youku - described as the YouTube of China - and sports website Sina Sports, and will feature commentary and graphics in Mandarin.The deal comes as NBL general manager Jeremy Loeliger prepares to visit China to sound out interest in a Chinese team one day joining the league.If you look at the strategy of the players who are getting involved now, I have no doubt in my mind that theyre putting themselves in a position to take content in the event that there is a Chinese team that joins the NBL, he told reporters on Wednesday.Obviously, thats very high on my agenda when I go and have those discussions in China next week. At this stage, thats still very much fact-finding and feeling out the local market as to what that opportunity might look like and how it might be structured.Sport is often talked about as the next big boom industry in China ... were there at the very beginning of that wave starting to form.Youku, owned by online commerce giant Alibaba, attracts 50 million unique daily visits.The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed but Loeliger said the ability to reach Chinese households would provide a lucrative incentive for potential sponsors.The league was on its knees several years ago as dwindling crowds, poor TV ratings, and a lack of star power threatened the existence of Australias professional basketball competition.But it has enjoyed a revival over the past two years, helped by a new digital broadcast strategy.The league has this year made every game available live through its NBL TV app, which is free to season-ticket holders, in addition to broadcast deals with Fox Sports and SBS.Wednesdays announcement follows the Sydney Kings becoming the first club in NBL history to lure a Chinese-born player, signing Shenzen Leopards giant Bo Liu as a development player via a loan deal.Loeliger hinted that Liu wont be the only Chinese player to join the league.Certainly, our partners in China have asked questions about what they can do around Sydney games to highlight Bo Lius involvement, he said. Cooper Kupp Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check. John Johnson Youth Jersey . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. http:///...everett-rams-jersey/ . The 31-year-old Spain midfielder hasnt played since Madrid lost in the Copa del Rey final to Atletico Madrid in May due to back and foot injuries. PITTSBURGH -- A once seemingly insurmountable four-touchdown lead gone against resilient Marshall on Saturday night, Pittsburgh could have played it safe and tried to hold on.Not this time.Up by just a field goal and facing third down near midfield, Pitt quarterback Nate Peterman lobbed a deep ball to Jester Weah down the sideline. The junior wide receiver pulled it in over a defender and raced to the end zone for a 54-yard touchdown with 1:04 remaining and the Panthers pulled away late for a 43-27 win.I loved it when they called the play, Weah said. I knew I had the ability to make the play. I just had to go out there and just do it.And help Pitt (3-2) avoid another late meltdown. Two weeks after giving up the go ahead touchdown with 2:18 to play in a loss at Oklahoma State and seven days after a 13-point fourth-quarter lead turned into a last-second loss at North Carolina, the Panthers appeared in trouble again when Marshalls Keion Davis scored on a 1-yard run with 4:01 to play to pull the Thundering Herd (1-3) within 30-27.After falling to the Tar Heels, Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi said his team couldnt afford to become predictable in late-game situations. Offensive coordinator Matt Canada was listening. Peterman hit Scott Orndoff on third down to extend the drive before Petermans second touchdown of the game let the Panthers exhale.The best thing is we made plays when we needed to at the end, Narduzzi said.Peterman finished with a season-high 280 yards passing and two scores. Weah caught seven passes for 176 yards and freshman Chawntez Moss ran for 97 yards. Pitt outgained the Thundering Herd 532-344.Still, it wasnt exactly easy.Marshall quarterback Chase Litton returned after missing a loss to Louisville last week and threw for 240 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Michael Clark caught four passes for 147 yards, including an 83-yard touchdown as part of Marshalls methodical rally, one that hardly seemed possible after an opening 330 minutes in which Pitt did whatever it wanted. Cooper Kupp Womens Jersey. PAYING TRIBUTEPitt held a moment of silence before the national anthem in honor of golfer Arnold Palmer. The native of Latrobe, Pennsylvania (about an hour from Heinz Field) passed away at 87 last week.The Panthers also saluted Dr. Stanley Marks following the first quarter. Marks served as Pitt running back James Conners oncologist while the 2014 ACC Player of the Year underwent treatment for Hodgkins lymphoma discovered last Thanksgiving. Conner, who ran for 39 yards and a touchdown, ran in to give Marks a hug and Narduzzi jogged onto the field to follow suit.WELCOME RETURNPitt entered the game with the 127th-ranked pass defense in the nation, next-to-last in the FBS. While Litton and Clark heated up in the second half, the Panthers got in the final word. Cornerback Avonte Maddox -- picked on repeatedly by opponents over the last three weeks -- returned a Litton pass 33 yards for a score on the games final play.Avonte Maddox needed that, Narduzzi said.THE TAKEAWAYMarshall: Litton appears to be just fine and may have one of Conference USAs better wide receivers in Clark. The 6-foot-7 sophomore will be a matchup nightmare down the road.Pitt: The kids are starting to deliver. Narduzzi gave considerable playing time to a handful of freshman, including Moss and freshman wide receivers Tre Tipton and Maurice Ffrench, with promising results. The trio combined for 156 yards of total offense and a pair of touchdowns. Thats what we expect, Tipton said. UP NEXTMarshall: Opens Conference USA play on the road at North Texas next Saturday. The Thundering Herd beat the Mean Green 30-13 last year.Pitt: Gets back into ACC action when it hosts Georgia Tech next Saturday. The Panthers edged the Yellow Jackets 31-28 in 2015 on Chris Blewitts 56-yard field goal with 1:11 to go. 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 ' ' '
