Сообщение the healers, what she does out 
ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands -- Greg McDermott isnt ready to think about No. 22 Creightons place in the national polls just yet.Ill worry about that come March, the Bluejays coach said.Creighton is riding high, though, after beating N.C. State 112-94 on Sunday night to advance to the championship game of the Paradise Jam tournament.Cole Huff had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and six other players finished in double figures for Creighton (4-0), which had its highest offensive output in a regulation game since scoring 115 points against Indiana State on Jan. 19, 1985.The polls dont mean anything to me right now, McDermott said. They will in March, but not right now. We just have to continue to get better.Im proud of the fact that coming off an emotional win like we had against (No. 9) Wisconsin, weve been able to put together two pretty good performances back to back. Thats a credit to this team.Khyri Thomas added 16 points and Marcus Foster had 15 among the seven Bluejays (4-0) in double figures. Creighton led by 24 at one point in the second half.Terry Henderson scored 28 points and three other players finished in double figures for the Wolfpack (3-1), who battled to six ties and eight lead changes in the first half.Dennis Smith Jr. added 21 points, Torin Dorn had 16 and Abdul-Malik Abu had 13 for N.C. State, which last led 47-46 with 2:43 remaining in the first half on Smiths 3-pointer.Creighton closed out the half with an 8-2 run for a 54-48 lead, then opened the second half with another 8-2 stretch for its first double-digit lead.The Bluejays biggest lead, 24 points, came when Huff hit a pair of free throws with 5:17 remaining for a 103-79 lead.No. 1, theyre a really good team and they can score the ball, N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried said. We had a hard time stopping them from scoring. I liked a lot of things we did -- we scored 92 ourselves -- but we just really couldnt slow them down, much less stop them. That was the difference in the game.Maurice Watson Jr. scored 15 points for Creighton, Isaiah Zierden added 12, Zach Hanson had 11 and Justin Patton had 10.BIG PICTUREN.C. State: Henderson scored more than 20 points for the second time in four games this season after missing nearly all of 2015-16 with an ankle injury.Creighton: The Bluejays are 4-0 for the fifth time in the past six seasons under McDermott. The only blemish on that run was a 3-1 start in 2015-2016.STAT SHEETN.C. State made a season-best 14 of 28 3-pointers and shot 45.6 percent from the field (31 of 6Cool. But Creighton countered with a season-best 60.6 percent shooting (40 of 66) and made 13 of 27 3-pointers.FOUL TIMEN.C. State and Creighton were whistled for 45 combined fouls, including a pair of technical fouls (on Foster and Patton) in the second half for excessive celebration. Beejay Anya fouled out for the Wolfpack, and six others (four for N.C. State, two for Creighton) finished with four fouls.POLL IMPLICATIONSWith the Top 25 rankings coming out Monday morning, Creighton should head into that evenings Paradise Jam championship game having moved up several spots following back-to-back 100-point games.UP NEXTN.C. State: Will play Saint Josephs in the tournaments third-place game Monday.Creighton: Will face Mississippi in the championship game Monday.

Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique. Blizzards newest game, Overwatch, officially launched last month and had seven million players within a week of release. Whats more, this is a game that went the traditional sales route rather than the increasingly common free-to-play one, meaning that all those players plopped down a minimum of $40 to play.Even before launch, there were a healthy number of professional Overwatch tournaments, populated by some of the biggest teams in esports. With Overwatchs audience growing and Blizzards focus on increasing the competitiveness of the game -- as evidenced by the games just-released Competitive Mode -- theres an opportunity for Overwatch to flourish as an esport. Any spectator sport, whether its hitting a ball with a large stick or dispensing an animated fighter with a Shoryuken, quickly develops its own internal strategies and trends as players become more experienced and the sport more refined. In gaming, we refer to this as the meta, an endlessly evolving state that forms the backbone of tactics employed in the game.We finish our introduction to the heroes and their competitive roles with the four five support heroes. Rarely flashy and even more rarely the subject of kill streak highlight reels on YouTube, the support heroes, and more accurately, the healers, are indispensable from high-level competition to your average pickup game.MercyThe most straight-up healer, Mercy is an absolute staple in every game mode now that were starting to see rules against Lúcio stacking in some maps. Situations where a team wont run a Mercy are few-and-far-between, limited mostly to last-ditch Hail Mary pushes where a player goes all-aggressive attack or the very rare King of the Hill situation in which youve gone with only a single Lúcio as the healer.While Mercy is a fairly straightforward character, it would be a mistake to think of her as a low-skill character. What makes a good Mercy competitor isnt reflexes or amazing aim, but situational and positional awareness. Not getting killed while focusing on preventing your teammates from not getting killed requires well-honed instincts about when to cut bait in a situation.A Mercy also shines when she has a well-coordinated team, which top teams tend to be. Shes not a mass healer in the way Lúcio is, and you get the most out of her when damage is spread to as few of your teammates as possible. In a pickup game with strangers, Lúcio is arguably better, but in competitive games, Mercys near-100 percent usage rate is for very good reason.Best maps: Uh...OverwatchLúcioAnd here we have the other main healer. While Mercy thrives in organization, Lúcio excels in chaos. Lúcio cant burst-heal an individual to the same degree that Mercy can (his ultimate, Sound Barrier, can probably be best described as burst-invulnerability), but he can keep most -- or all -- of his team well-maintained in a brutal firefight.Lúcio is a regular pick as the second healer in most situations, but King of the Hill maps tend to show off his wide-ranging skills the most. With a better ability to defend himself from flankers in this non-linear map mode and the Soundwaves for a measure of crowd control, its here that Lúcio provides something that Mercy really cant.And Soundwaving a player off the map to their death is pretty cool, too.Best maps: All the King of the HillsZenyattaNo hero saw his role fall further in the closed beta than Zenyatta. A hybrid offense/defense character, Zenyattas Orbs of Harmmony and Discord were versatile, allowing a roaming flanker to get healed far away from Zenyatta and a Discorded enemy to have a persistent debuff until Zenyatta or they died.dddddddddddd Given this flexibility, Zenyatta was a staple of competitive play in the early beta. Blizzard attempted to deal with this by increasing the number of abilities that could remove the Discord orb.In the end, Zenyatta got the full brunt of the nerf hammer, making it so that both orbs were removed if a player was out of the line of his sight for three seconds. Or to put it bluntly, Blizzard added a hard counter to Zenyatta: a wall.This reduced Zenyattas utility to the point that hes essentially fallen out of favor in competitive games.There may be some hope for Zenyatta, though. Blizzard increased his survivability by bumping his base shields, increased the projectile speed of the orbs, and increased both his movement speed and his healing power in his Transcendence ultimate. Will this be enough to get Zenyatta back into the meta? Not holding my breath, but there will hopefully be some experimentation.Best map: None right nowSymmetraIn pub games, Symmetra has a few interesting roles. Against less-experienced players, excellent turret placement can be annoying and her Photon Projector goes through shields and can destroy Torbj?rn turrets and inattentive Bastions.In competitive games, Symmetra has exactly one role: early in payload maps on defense, building a teleporter to help the team with the long travel distances. Without a quick teleporter, an attacker early in a payload map has a de facto numerical edge because the time required for the attacker to get back into the fight after a respawn is much less than that of a defender. Symmetra neutralizes this once she gets her teleporter up, buying the team valuable time.Best maps: Dorado, Hollywood, Route 66, Kings RowAnaIts far too early to tell exactly how Ana, Overwatchs first post-launch hero, will fare in competitive play. She was just officially released on Tuesday, after all. So we have to make some educated guesses.Whats interesting about Ana is her versatility. She can do long-range damage as well as long-range healing, her Biotic Grenade acts as a form of indirect crowd control in that it hampers an enemy healer from healing their team for a few seconds. The Sleep Dart can situationally hamper an opponent, so long as a teammate doesnt wake them up with damage. I expect Ana to be a lot of fun to play in Quickplay and the built-in competitive mode.At high levels? The outlook is foggier. With only six players on a team, theres an emphasis on picking heroes based on their strongest attribute in order to cause exploitable mismatches. A team is not likely to run three healers and her skillset means shes not as strong at healing individual targets as Mercy or as strong at healing mass targets as Lúcio.So for her to displace one of the healers, what she does outside of straight-up healing has to be extremely powerful. Pre-nerf Zenyattas persistent orbs were extremely powerful, so he saw play. Is being like Widowmaker with a sniper rifle and short-term enemy debuffs enough? Im not so sure, but I hope Im wrong as it would be nice to see the Mercy/Lúcio stranglehold be released a bit, creating more dynamic team composition decisions.Best maps: TBA Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
