His Utah Jazz teammates had been waiting for athletic rookie Donovan Mitchell to show off his explosiveness in a game. They finally got it Saturday night when the No. 12 overall draft pick caught an offensive rebound with one hand, behind his Allen Hurns Jersey head and slammed it home in the same motion with Lonzo Ball looking up from the ground and the crowd going wild.
Mitchell scored a career-high 22 points and the Jazz held on for a 96-81 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.
The victory broke a two-game losing streak for the Jazz.
Womens Denzel Perryman Jersey Quarterback J.T. Barrett has been brilliant. Ohio State’s offense and defense are dynamic. Penn State was unbeaten and ranked No. 2 in the nation, and the Nittany Lions couldn’t stop the Buckeyes from erasing two 18-point deficits.
But as one college football analyst likes to say, not so fast, my friend. Coach Urban Meyer is not foolish enough to get caught up in the rankings, playoff speculation or Heisman hype for Barrett after the near-perfect performance against Penn State.
We’re in the hunt for a lot of big things right now, Meyer said. But the target is Iowa on the road at 3:30.
Is there any chance for an upset? It’s unlikely, but Iowa does have a track record of coming up with some magic at Kinnick.
Earlier this year, Penn State had to score on the final play of the game to get past Iowa.

Last year, Iowa was struggling late in the season but found a way to knock off second-ranked and previously unbeaten Michigan. In 2008, Iowa handed No. 3 Penn State its first loss late in the season with a last-second field goal at Kinnick.
