Two Western Conference contenders in good form collide Saturday afternoon, when the Portland Timbers host the Los Angeles Galaxy for a nationally televised showdown at always-raucous Providence Park.The Timbers (7-6-8) are riding a nine-game MLS unbeaten streak and have won four of five at home, but will be without playmaker Darren Mattocks on Saturday due to a hamstring injury. Even without Mattocks, Portland boasts two of MLS most prolific goal-scorers in Fanendo Adi and Diego Valeri.Los Angeles (8-3-8) has won its last three MLS games and five matches overall, including a 4-2 win over the Seattle Sounders in U.S. Open Cup play on Wednesday.The Galaxys Raul Mendiola scored an early goal in Los Angeles 1-0 win over Portland in U.S. Open Cup play on June 30, the two teams most recent meeting.The Galaxys Ashley Cole and Steven Gerrard are dealing with injuries and considered game-time decisions. Cole has missed the last three games with a hamstring issue, and Gerrard is trying to comeback from an injury suffered in a 1-0 win over the Houston Dynamo last week. Gerrard is fourth in the league in assists with seven.With Mattocks out, the Timbers will lean even more heavily on Valeri, an MVP candidate who scored two goals in Portlands win over Seattle last week. Valeri is fourth in the MLS in goals with nine.He has been outstanding, Timbers coach Caleb Porter said of Valeri via Oregonlive.com. I think its in line as well with our team getting healthy. The best players are even better when they have other good players around them.Adi leads the Timbers with 10 goals and has had past success against the Galaxy with five goals in the last four games against Los Angeles.Defensively, the Timbers have settled on keeper Jake Gleeson, who has 70 saves on the season, second most in MLS. Adam Larsen Kwarasey began the season as Portlands No. 1 keeper but was plagued by injuries and transferred back to Norway earlier in the week.Galaxy keeper Brian Rowe has been solid in the net, saving 68 shots, fourth most in MLS.

The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- After 10 minutes, Michigan had already made five 3-pointers, and when halftime arrived, the number was up to nine.By the time the game ended, the Wolverines had set a school record from beyond the arc. Two of them, in fact.We knew they were going to play a matchup 2/3 zone going into the game, so we knew we were going to have a lot of opportunities to have open 3s, Michigans Zak Irvin said. Thats what were known for -- kind of a zone buster-type team.Irvin scored 16 points, and Michigan made a school-record 19 3-pointers in a 97-53 rout of Central Arkansas on Tuesday night. The Wolverines also set a school record with 45 attempts from 3-point range, easily handling that zone.Michigan (8-3) even made its first 11 field goal attempts from inside the arc -- its first miss from there didnt come until early in the second half.Jordan Howard scored 14 points for Central Arkansas (1-9). The Bears have played only one home game all season.I didnt think that we came out with the focus and energy, Central Arkansas coach Russ Pennell said. This is our Super Bowl. If you cant get excited playing at a place like this and against this type of competition, you dont need to be playing Division I basketball. So were trying to change a culture, and sometimes youve got to get your backside kicked pretty good in order to get their attention.Moe Wagner had 18 points and seven rebounds for Michigan. Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman scored 14 points and Duncan Robinson added 12. Irvin, Abdur-Rahkman and Robinson made four 3-pointers each.The Wolverines broke the school record of 17 3-pointers in a game when Ibi Watson connected from the left wing with 3:58 to play. By then, Michigan had gone deep into its bench.The previous school record for 3-pointers came against Bryant on Dec. 23, 2015, and the record for attempts was 42, set Dec. 22, 22008 against Florida Gulf Coast.ddddddddddddBIG PICTURECentral Arkansas: The Bears have played a tough schedule, and games like this are about trying to show improvement. In that sense, it may have been beneficial for Central Arkansas to test its zone against Michigans sharp shooters -- but that matchup didnt make for a particularly competitive game.Michigan: The Wolverines were coming off a 102-84 loss at UCLA. They did as they pleased offensively against Central Arkansas with little resistance from the Bears, and Michigan can be fairly happy with its defense in the first half, when the Wolverines allowed only 20 points.PLEASEDMichigan coach John Beilein often goes out of his way to compliment opponents. That was a tough sell after his team routed Central Arkansas so easily, but he pointed out that the Bears took Arkansas-Little Rock down to the wire. Also, their loss at Butler earlier this month was reasonably competitive until the last 10 minutes.We caught them at the right time, Beilein said. Weve got a lot of guys who can make shots from the outside, so a zone sometimes can be a tough defense to play against us, and our kids really played well.TOUGH ROADBeilein was also happy about how his team played coming off the long trip back from the game at UCLA on Saturday.Were in exams, too, Beilein said. We had three papers due today.UP NEXTCentral Arkansas: The Bears return home to face in-state rival Arkansas State on Friday night.Michigan: The Wolverines continue an easier stretch of their schedule with a home game against Maryland-Eastern Shore on Saturday.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .---Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtrister Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
