LONDON -- However -- and whenever -- David Moyes Manchester United career ends, the first trophy he lifted is unlikely to be considered a defining moment. Cheap Air Max White Store . In fact, Moyes considers the Community Shield -- collected on Sunday after United beat Wigan 2-0 -- to be the 50th and final title of Alex Fergusons illustrious managerial career that ended in May. "It was his team that won the Premier League by (11) points last season so todays is really Sir Alexs (win)," Moyes said after the clash of the league and FA Cup winners at Wembley Stadium. "The ones going forward will be down to me. So big thank you for Sir Alex getting me into this position." For the former Everton manager, who was hand-picked by Ferguson to succeed him after nearly 27 years at Old Trafford, the traditional curtain-raiser to the English season was all about avoiding embarrassment. And Robin van Persies double against the FA Cup winners will lift some of the anxieties around United following a lacklustre run of pre-season results before its Premier League title defence begins next weekend. "Ive been really impressed with Robin," Moyes said. "Hes been easy to work with. Hes been really receptive and helpful." The sixth-minute header and second-half deflected strike reinforced Van Persies status as Uniteds leading striker during Wayne Rooneys absence. The future of Rooney was the biggest issue Ferguson left Moyes to resolve. The former Everton manager has been steadfast through an off-season of agitating by the unsettled striker that he would not be sold, with two bids from Chelsea rejected. Rooney was ruled out of all the official preseason fixtures and Sundays match due to hamstring and shoulder problems. But, adding to the mystery, Moyes said that while Rooney is in line to play for England against Scotland on Wednesday, hes unlikely to be fit for Uniteds Premier League opener at Swansea on Saturday. "I dont see why you think thats confusing," Moyes said at a post-match media conference dominated by questions about Rooneys future. Moyes insisted that he "didnt fall out with Wayne." The reason for Rooneys frustration seems to be Van Persie, with the Netherlands striker moving above him in the pecking order since joining a year ago from Arsenal. And Van Persie took just six minutes to find the net at a sun-drenched Wembley in north London. After Van Persie sent the ball to Evra on the left flank, the left back crossed the ball back to the forward in the penalty area to head past goalkeeper Scott Carson. It was game over, with Wigan rarely posing a threat. Winning the FA Cup was the high point for Wigan last season, with its first major trophy success followed by relegation from the Premier League. It was Moyes going to United that led to Wigan losing manager Roberto Martinez after the cup triumph. After Martinez headed to Everton, Owen Coyle was hired by Wigan. The League Championship season is already under way, and returning to the worlds richest league is Coyles priority, even with a Europa League campaign to look forward to, starting in September. The couple of opportunities Wigan did have to equalize were squandered against the 20-time English champions. After James McClean worked his way down the left flank, Grant Holt couldnt get on the end of his cross. And just before half time, Leon Barnetts header was off-target. After the tour of Asia and Australia that yielded just two wins this was a trouble-free preparation for the season for United. "We looked a lot better today," midfielder Michael Carrick said. Although it was a routine victory, the lack of spark highlighted Uniteds failure to reinforce the squad, with moves for Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara both faltering. Instead, Van Persies goals served as a reminder of the success of Ferguson a year ago in prizing a top asset from a fierce rival. Although quiet after the first goal he sprang into life again to net again just before the hour. Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck did the hard work in carving out the opportunity, and the low strike from Van Persie was heading on target but landed in the net after taking a deflection off James Perch past Scott Carson. And, for the first time in Uniteds history, a manager collected a trophy in his first season. What was missing in the game was a disputed goal. This would have been the first time in English football history when the referee could defer to goal-line technology with Hawk-Eyes 14 cameras in the ground following FIFA approval.

The major league leader with 40 homers during the regular season, Cruz added an RBI single to his early blast off Max Scherzer.

LOUIS -- Bill Self gathered his team around the bench late in Fridays game against Eastern Kentucky, one that had grown a bit too close for comfort for the second-seeded Jayhawks. His team had gone back to chucking up jumpers, the scrappy Ohio Valley Conference champions had regained the lead, and thoughts of Mercers upset of Duke earlier in the day were on everyones mind. "I thought we responded as a group," Self said. The Jayhawks resumed pounding away inside out of the timeout, slowly took control down the stretch and pulled away for an 80-69 victory in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Andrew Wiggins of Vaughan, Ont., had 19 points for the Jayhawks (25-9), who will play No. 10 seed Stanford on Sunday in the South Regional. Jamari Traylor added 17 points and 14 rebounds, Perry Ellis had 14 points and 13 boards and Tarik Black finished with 12 points as Kansas dominated in the paint. "Our main focus on the game was to get in there and pound them," Traylor said. Even without 7-footer Joel Embiid, who is out for the weekend with a back injury. Glenn Cosey hit five 3-pointers and had 17 points for the 15th-seeded Colonels (24-10), who have lost all eight of their NCAA tournament games. Tarius Johnson and Eric Stutz finished with 15 points apiece, but second-leading scorer Corey Walden was held to four points before fouling out. "Corey is a very important part of our team," Colonels coach Jeff Neubauer said. "With that being said, thats not an excuse. Kansas really played great." In the second half, perhaps. Certainly not in the first. Like a swarm of gnats, the smaller guards of Eastern Kentucky made life miserable for the turnover-prone Jayhawks in the first 20 minutes. Kansas had more turnovers (10) by the midway point than field goal attempts (9), and at one juncture turned it over on six of eight possessions. Most of those miscues turned into easy points at the other end. The Colonels, buoyed by their trademark 3-point shooting, raced out to a 23-14 lead, silencing a heavily pro-Jayhawks crowd and even making some fans out of New Mexico and Stanford folks. "Our defence is focused on turning people over and being aggressive," Stutz said. "In that first half, thats what got us our leead. Cheap Air Max Youth. " It wasnt until the first of two rim-rattling dunks by Wiggins off alley-oop passes that Kansas showed some life. The second came during an 8-0 flurry that gave the Big 12 champions a 28-27 lead with just over a minute to play, their first since the opening minute of the game. The Jayhawks have grown accustomed to tussles with lower seeds, of course. Just last year, they trailed No. 16 seed Western Kentucky at halftime before pulling away down the stretch. It looked like Kansas would pull away again Friday, scoring on its first seven trips down court and building a 45-38 lead. The turnovers suddenly came to a stop -- after 13 in the first half, the Jayhawks had just one in the second -- and Eastern Kentucky was suddenly on the ropes. But rather than continue to pound away inside, where the Jayhawks were having so much success, they reverted to missing jump shots. The Colonels took advantage with a 10-0 run, and Self called a red-faced timeout rather than risk pulling out his hair. "We knew that anything could happen," the Jayhawks Conner Frankamp said. "We were down, we tried to stay poised and not get too rattled, and just tried to make the easy play, because we felt like we could score pretty good down low." Once they were reminded of that fact. Kansas went back inside out of the timeout, dumping the ball to a big man or driving to the basket. The Jayhawks regained the lead at 59-56 on Wayne Seldens free throw and Traylors putback dunk, and then kept turning back every 3-pointer that Eastern Kentucky managed to rattle home. "Just our mentality (changed)," Wiggins said. "We were tougher on the ball. We knew against the defence of this team, we had to make good decisions, great plays and throw it inside." When the final seconds ticked away, and the Jayhawks were assured of advancing, Self slowly walked to the scorers table to shake hands with his Eastern Kentucky counterpart. He exhaled deeply as he stuck out his hand, and the first words he said were, "Great game." "They played great. They played loose and gave us everything we wanted," he said later. "It was a hard-fought game, one we had to work our tail off 40 minutes to come out with a win."
