SALT LAKE CITY -- Lorenzo Bonam scored 17 points as Utah eased past Concordia 96-53 on Tuesday evening.Utah put the game away early in the first half with a 19-2 run that pushed the lead to 32-11. The Utes shot 51.4 percent in the first 20 minutes and improved their ball control from the first game with just three first-half turnovers.We fixed a few things that were broken in our last game, Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak said. Its just part of the process early on.With as many new faces as we have, (Kyle Kuzma) and Lorenzo and some of those guys are doing a pretty good job of expressing how important some of those (details) are. We just need to trust the process. Its written in our practice facility to trust a lot of things. Cant get too up and too down, but weve just got to keep making improvements.Bonam bounced back from a horrific seven-turnover opener with just one against Concordia. Kuzma finished with 13 points and eight rebounds and Tyler Rawson added 12 points and eight rebounds. Parker Van Dyke scored a career-high 15 to go along with five rebounds and four assists.Its been a long time coming, said Van Dyke, who missed the last two seasons due to a Mormon mission trip. Its almost been three years since my first game as a freshman. Its good to be back and its good to make some shots tonight and play some good D. I think tonight was just a good game for my confidence and prepared me for the rest of the year.The Cavaliers were simply overmatched in every way. They didnt have the athleticism to keep up physically and outrebounded 51-33. Concordia werent skilled enough and shot just 32 percent from the field, including 5 for 17 from beyond the 3-point line.Christopher Edward scored a team-high 12 points for the Cavaliers while Latrell Wilson chipped in nine points.When we come up and play a Pac-12 team, its a great opportunity to test ourselves on a significant road trip in a great environment, Concordia coach Brad Barbarick said. Its a great experience for our kids playing on the Pac-12 Network. All of those things are positives for our program in recruiting.Whenever we can get our name out there in a game like this, it just helps us (with) name recognition and the opportunity to establish ourselves a little bit more. Were new to D2. This is our second year in the GNAC. We were NAIA for a long time. ... For us to step up and play here at Utah, thats a great experience for our kids and its great for our program.BIG PICTUREConcordia: Tuesday was all about experience for the Division II program. The game is just an exhibition for the Cavaliers, who were fighting an uphill battle from the opening tip.Utah: The Utes are still developing into what type of team theyre going to be with just two significant returners on the roster. The first four games are simply warmups that include two Division II programs while Utah finds its identity.EASING INKrystkowiak doesnt seem concerned about any strength of schedule issues due to opening the season with a pair of Division II teams and Coppin State.With our team, there needs to be a sense of confidence that youre gaining, Krystkowiak said. You dont want to get pummeled. That can be pretty dangerous.You do what you thinks best in the scheduling. And I thought in this particular year, things are going to start amping up. ... Thats the key for us, to try to get firing on some more cylinders and get prepared for league play.UP NEXTConcordia: The Cavaliers play California-San Diego Friday in the Doubletree Shootout.Utah: The Utes host Coppin State on Friday as they wrap up an opening stretch of with three games in six days.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Bilal Powell made sure that Bryce Pettys rough start had a positive finish for the New York Jets.Powell ran for 145 yards, including the game-ending 19-yard touchdown in overtime, to help Petty and the New York Jets rally from 14 points down to beat the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 on Sunday.It shows the character we have, Powell said. Its not the season that everyone was expecting but we keep fighting and we have a lot of guys on the team who showed a lot of pride.Petty threw an interception on his first pass of the game and the Jets (4-9) trailed 14-0 less than five minutes into the game. San Francisco (1-12) led 17-3 at halftime, but fell flat after that and lost a franchise-worst 12th straight game.Powell took over from there and scored his second TD of the game on New Yorks first possession of overtime after Pettys scramble and 26-yard pass to Robby Anderson put the Jets in field-goal range.First half was probably about as ugly as I could play, Petty said. I came out a little bit more nervous than I thought I was going to be. ... Hats off to the team for sticking with me.Petty, who went 23 for 35 for 257 yards in his second career start , rallied the Jets back from a 17-3 deficit in the first half by leading two fourth-quarter scoring drives. New York used a 15-play, 66-yard drive to cut the deficit to 17-14 with 5:04 left when Powell bowled his way in for a 5-yard run and Petty ran in the 2-point conversion .New York then forced a punt and Petty led the Jets 33 yards to tie the game on Nick Folks 50-yard field goal with 38 seconds left.Hyde ran for a career-high 193 yards and caught a TD pass, but Phil Dawson missed two field goals and San Francisco failed to score on its final eight possessions to squander a 14-point lead for the third time this season.We have to make plays, quarterback Colin Kaepernick said. Thats what it comes down to. If you dont go out and execute and dont go out and make plays, you wont get it done on offense.KEY PLAYThe 49ers won the toss in overtime and drove to New Yorks 37, where they faced a fourth-and-2. Coach Chip Kelly opted to go for it rather than kick a field goal or punt and the Jets stuffed Hyde for no gain for one of tthe few big plays on run defense after allowing 248 yards rushing for the game.dddddddddddd(Thats) what Im used to seeing, coach Todd Bowles said. The first drive, second drive of the game is not what Im used to seeing. They stepped up and won.ROUGH STARTThe game couldnt have started worse for Petty. He telegraphed a short pass to Quincy Enunwa that Jimmie Ward intercepted and returned to the New York 7. Colin Kaepernick found Hyde in the flat for the TD on the next play to give San Francisco the lead. After New York went three-and-out the next possession, San Francisco moved 81 yards on four plays with help from a 47-yard run by Hyde to set up Shaun Draughns 4-yard run that made it 14-0 just 4:11 into the game.KAPS ROLLER COASTERAfter getting pulled last week after completing just one pass in three quarters in snowy Chicago , Kaepernick looked much better early back home in better weather conditions. He completed his first seven passes with 95 yards in the first quarter before faltering. He finished 15 for 26 for 133 yards as San Francisco had just 17 yards passing after halftime -- its fewest in 11 years.Thats on me as a play-caller, Kelly said. I just really wasnt confident.INJURIESBoth teams were hit hard by injuries with the scariest coming when Niners receiver Torrey Smith was knocked out with a concussion when his helmet slammed against the turf as he fell on an incomplete pass in the third quarter. Smith was motionless for a bit as players kneeled in concern. He was eventually able to sit up and was carted off the field with a towel draped over his head.San Francisco also lost center Daniel Kilgore (right leg) and tight end Vance McDonald (shoulder) to injuries.New York lost running back Matt Forte (knee), tight end Brandon Bostick (ankle), and defensive backs Marcus Gilchrist (knee) and Buster Skrine (head). Forte will have tests done Monday but said he doesnt believe he has ligament damage. Gilchrist will undergo season-ending surgery for a patella tendon tear.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Jerseys  Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
