Los Angeles Kings forward Anze Kopitar headlines Slovenias roster for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Carlos Lee Jersey . Slovenia announced its 25-man roster for Sochi on Monday, becoming the second nation to do so after the United States New Years Day announcement.

The complete 25-man squad is as follows: Goaltenders: Luka Gracnar, Andrej Hocevar, Robert Kristan.

Slovenia emerged from its qualifying group to become one of the 12 nations in the mens hockey tournament, despite being ranked 17th in the world. They beat out Belarus, Ukraine and Denmark to secure their first ever berth in the Olympic mens tournament. The nations best finish at the IIHF World Championships was 13th, which they achieved in both 2002 and 2005. Slovenia will be grouped together with Russia, Slovakia and the United States in Sochi. Carlos Gomez Astros Jersey . -- The Val-dOr Foreurs made it to the Memorial Cup semifinal thanks to their workhorse goaltender and their ability to hang around like a bad cold. Alex Bregman Jersey . Louis Cardinals, the team will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the opening of the SkyDome. Jays legends Jimmy Key and Ernie Whitt, members of playoff and World Series-winning teams of the past, will be on hand for the festivities to look back at what was the beginning of the Jays halcyon years. EL PASO, Texas -- Brett Hundley shredded Virginia Techs fourth-ranked defence in the Sun Bowl. The UCLA quarterback had 86- and 7-yard touchdown runs and finished with 161 yards on 10 carries in the No. 17 Bruins 42-12 victory over the Hokies on Tuesday. "I guess he can run a little," UCLA coach Jim Mora said. "He played well. He was poised." Hundley also completed 16 of 29 passes for 226 yards and two scores. "It was a special game," Hundley said. "We played well as an offence. We had to make adjustments. When we did, we got things going." Hundley and UCLA linebacker Jordan Zumwalt shared MVP honours. Zumwalt had 10 tackles and returned an interception 43 yards to set up a touchdown. "Its the best game Ive ever seen him play," Mora said about Zumwalt. "He was unbelievable from start to finish. The Bruins (10-3) outscored the Hokies (8-5) 28-2 in the fourth quarter. After Virginia Tech cut it to 14-10 on Michael Branthovers 22-yard field goal with 3:53 left in the third quarter, UCLA answered with a 12-play, 85-yard drive, capped by Paul Perkinss 5-yard run early in the fourth. Hokies backup quarterback Mark Leal then threw a pass under heavy pressure that linebacker Myles Jack intercepted and returned 29 yards for a touchdown that made it 28-10. "In the second half we blocked things up better," Mora said. "We got back to doing what we do best. We played with great tempo. We were not as uptight." Virginia Tech, which lost starting quarterback Logan Thomas to an injury in the second quarter, got its final points when UCLA punter Sean Covington stepped on the end line for a safety with 9:38 left. Thomas, Virginia Techs career passing leader, left after taking a big hit along the UCLA sideline early in the second quarter. The hit resulted in a 15-yard penalty on the Bruins. "It was tough to miss time on the field, the worst feeling of my career," Thomas ssaid. Doug Fister Jersey. "I would have rather you guys talk bad about me than miss time on the field. We were doing some good things on offence. I thought we were right on the verge of doing some good things." UCLA pushed it to 35-12 on Hundleys 8-yard touchdown pass to Thomas Duarte with 7:31 to play. The Bruins stayed aggressive late, and Hundley fired a 59-yard scoring strike down the right sideline to Shaquelle Evans for another score with 5:49 remaining. It wasnt that easy early on, though, for UCLA, which led 14-7 at the half. Hundley had six carries for 168 yards in the half. He set the Sun Bowl record for rushing yards by a quarterback by halftime, even though he lost 7 yards in the second to finish at 161. The Bruins rushed for 202 yards in the first half, and finished with 197. The win in the first meeting between the teams allowed UCLA to post its first 10-win season since 2005, and helped the Bruins forget last seasons 49-26 loss to Baylor in the Holiday Bowl. Virginia Tech had its second-worst loss in a bowl game. Its worst was a 42-3 loss to North Carolina in the 1998 Gator Bowl. The 42 points the Hokies allowed were the second-most in a bowl game behind the 52 they gave up in a 52-49 loss to California in the 2003 Insight Bowl. While the Hokies, making their 21st consecutive bowl appearance, were able to limit UCLAs running backs to 49 yards, they had no answer for Hundley, who repeatedly gouged them for big gainers on designed quarterback counters. "UCLA made the plays it had to and you have to give them credit," Hokies coach Frank Beamer said. "I was disappointed that we didnt execute better. "When we recovered the fumble down 14-7, I had hoped we could have punched it in for a touchdown, but we had to settle for three and then UCLA comes back and scores to make it 21-10. That was huge. I thought about going for it on fourth down but we just wanted to get something on the board." Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys ' ' '
