MILWAUKEE - On a night in which DeMar DeRozan went scoreless, Kyle Lowry shot 1-for-9 from long distance, Jonas Valanciunas didnt log a minute in the fourth quarter and James Johnson didnt play at all, it was almost fitting to see the recently benched Terrence Ross go from zero to hero in the games most crucial moments. Fernandinho Jersey . For the first time since inheriting his starting spot from the traded Rudy Gay over 13 months ago, Ross came off the bench in Milwaukee on Monday night, 24 hours after sitting the entire second half in a disastrous loss to the undermanned Pelicans. With less than a minute remaining and the Raptors trying to hold off the charging Bucks, Ross was back in the spotlight. He didnt start but thanks to a strong showing in response to his benching - his best in weeks - the 23-year-old closed the game for a struggling DeRozan. Amir Johnson saved a broken possession with some crafty ball handling, finding Patrick Patterson, who swung it to Ross in the corner. Ross put the ball on the floor, something he did with regularity on this night, pulled up and drained a 14-footer. Moments later, after Brandon Knight cut Torontos lead back down to one, Lowry found Ross leaking out for the slam dunk in transition. It would turn out to be the dagger. He played with a lot of confidence, relaxed, Dwane Casey said of Ross following a 92-89 win. I thought he came in in the first half and got us jump-started off the bench. I dont know if its a permanent thing but I liked the way he came in and played, especially on the defensive end. After starting the last 102 games hes played, Ross found out he would be coming off the bench earlier that day, although it couldnt have come as much of a surprise given how poorly hes performed of late. Once again, the timing has been unfortunate for Ross. His last slump coincided with the teams seven-game playoff series and elimination, while this slide comes during a stretch in which the Raptors have dropped seven of 10 as a team, almost magnifying the lulls you would expect from a young player. Were struggling as a team and one guy is not shooting the ball well, not playing defence at the level he has, rebounding the way he has so it makes it look like were pointing fingers at him, Casey had said before the game. But just maybe that change or whatever will get everybody else clicking until he gets things going again. Its tough, especially with a young player were trying to develop and grow. Its often difficult to gauge Ross level of motivation because hes a quiet, sort of disengaged person by nature. Hes a different personally, Casey said. But, at least for one night, it seemed like the message was received. He looked like a different player than the one who had shot 2-for-15 in the previous three games, the one that would get lost on both ends of the floor with little-to-no interest in being found. He checked in for DeRozan with nearly five minutes to go in the first quarter, immediately knocking down his first shot, which may have gone a long way in restoring his fleeting confidence. His jumper was falling - hitting a corner three-ball shortly thereafter - and he was making plays off the dribble, looking for teammates around the rim and even throwing down a vicious one-handed slam early in the second quarter. Everybody goes through it, said Ross, who scored 16 points and grabbed five rebounds on 7-of-12 shooting in 23 minutes off the bench. So you just have to play through it because if you dont itll never go away. Youre in the NBA, youre living your dream, Patterson had told Ross. Youre in a positive situation, youre in an environment where everyone is rooting and pulling for you. No one tells him not to shoot the ball, everyone wants him to be aggressive out there and thats what hes going to keep on doing. We look for him a lot on the defensive end and on the offensive end. Hes our all-around player and hes got a lot of responsibility but hes young and he still has a lot to learn. Greivis Vasquez stepped into the starting lineup in place of Ross, but as the back-up point guard hes still needed on the floor with the second unit when Lowry is out of the game, meaning his minutes automatically go up and someone on the wing becomes the odd man out. On Monday that was Johnson, who did not log a minute. With Tyler Hansbrough playing well (Casey has also been reluctant to use Johnson at the four this season) and the Raptors trying to get Ross going again, there wasnt much time available for the versatile forward. Id love to play 15 guys, Casey explained after the game. Theres going to be some guys out of the rotation some nights and tonight those three did a good job – Terrence came in off the bench, Lou [Williams], Greivis and Kyle – so it had nothing to do with James, nothing he did wrong. Valanciunas, who had a double-double in the first half and finished with 11 points and 13 rebounds, was held out in the fourth quarter with the Bucks going small, while DeRozan didnt look like himself playing in the third game in four nights having recently returned from injury. The lineup change, as Casey says, is not permanent but it should stick for the time being as Ross regains his confidence and the team gets back on track. Vasquez will remain in the starting lineup to spread the floor as another three-point shooter and take pressure off of the tiring Lowry. Johnson, who likely missed out on the temporary promotion because of his limited range, may not see regular playing time but has done enough this season to earn a role in the rotation. He seemed to take the benching in stride, supporting his teammates on the sideline throughout the game, and Casey insists theres nothing more to it. Stay tuned. As for Ross, his skill set - when hes locked in - and his presence with the first unit are far too important to just write off. The Raptors need to get him right and Casey knows it. Ive watched film with him and talked with him, he said. Everybody is working and trying to get him through this. Its nothing unusual for guys to go through what hes going through and, again, our woes are not totally Terrence, I want to make that clear. Its not totally him. Its everybody, all of us. I think sometimes guys need to take a deep breath and kind of smell the roses a bit and see whats going on and then go play. FINAL ALL-STAR PUSH Make no mistake, Lowry will be representing the Raptors in next months All-Star Game one way or another, but with fan voting set to close Monday evening, the point guard may be better off getting a short vacation. After playing MVP-caliber ball to start the campaign, culminating in Eastern Conference Player of the Month honours for December, Lowry has hit a mid-season wall. It is what it is, he said last week. It doesnt matter. If I get in, I get in. If I dont, Ill be on the beach hanging out, resting. He could use the rest. With the Raptors losing seven of nine games entering Mondays contest, Lowry averaged 17.3 points on 38 per cent shooting from the field, 31 per cent from three-point range over that stretch. He had scored 23.0 points on 51 per cent shooting, 48 per cent from three in his previous eight contests, with Toronto winning seven of them. In the most recent balloting update, released 11 days ago, Lowry had made some progress passing Kyrie Irving for third place among guards in the East, but still sat over 100,000 votes behind Dwayne Wade for the second and final starting spot at the position. Since then public support of the Lowry campaign has skyrocketed, at least north of the border. To some recent criticism, the Raptors have ramped up their promotion on the team broadcasts while keeping track of in-arena Twitter votes for the ninth-year guard. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was the first notable Canadian to jump on board, tweeting an endorsement, which also counted as a vote (as have the 5,500 retweets its accumulated over the past two weeks). Trumping the PMs tweet, Canadian pop star Justin Bieber made a similar plea to his 59-million followers on Monday afternoon, getting retweeted 20,000 times in just 20 minutes. However, Biebers tweet and its subsequent retweets will not count towards Lowrys vote total because he did not include the hashtag NBABallot.

For Sweed, a second round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2008, this will be his second go around in the CFL after previously having spent time with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- As the final seconds of regulation ticked off the clock, the sellout crowd was poised to storm the court to celebrate an upset victory in Marylands final regular season game in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Disappointment ensued. No. 5 Virginia forced overtime, forcing the fans back to their seats to see if the Terrapins could rebound from the letdown to pull off an upset against the best team in the league. And that is precisely what happened. Maryland closed out its 61st and final ACC regular season in stunning fashion, outlasting the Cavaliers 75-69 in overtime Sunday to end Virginias 13-game winning streak. "Today wasnt just an ordinary game. It was a lot of things," Terrapins coach Mark Turgeon said. "We always play for Maryland, but today we played for former players, former coaches, all our fans." After blowing a seemingly secure lead in the closing seconds of regulation, the Terps (17-14, 9-9 ACC) never trailed in the extra session in front of an emotional crowd of 17,950 at the schools final home basketball game in a conference it joined as a charter member in 1953. When the final buzzer sounded, thousands of fans raced onto the court to celebrate another unforgettable ACC memory at the expense of one of its biggest rivals. Anthony Gill scored 15 points and London Perrantes had 14 for Virginia (25-6, 16-2), which had already clinched the regular season title and was vying to set an ACC record for most league wins during the regular season. "Not that we felt were invincible, but now we know we arent," coach Tony Bennett said. "So now we address it, and now we get after it." What hurt the most it that Maryland shot 48 per cent and scored 32 points in the paint against the nations top-ranked defence. "I was surprised how our defence didnt execute like we should have down the stretch," Gill said. "We are a defensive team, but we made it too easy for them. Theyre a good team, but we just slipped up." Seth Allen scored five of his 20 points in overtime and Dez Wells finished with 18 for the Terrapins, who will play in the Big Ten next season. Maryland had lost six straight to Virginia, including a 61-53 decision in February that was part of the Cavaliers school-record winning streak against ACC competition. This game, however, was unlike any that preceded it. "The crowd was lively and thats what our guys got to understand, that youre getting teams best shots," Bennett said. Brahim Diaz Jersey. "I dont know if all that mattered. It was just a team that outplayed us. The crowd was great for them, the atmosphere was great. But we did get it to overtime and they answered the bell." The end of regulation was a horror show for Maryland. After Jake Layman made two free throws with 4.1 seconds left to put the Terrapins ahead 64-61, Maryland quickly fouled. Malcolm Brogdon made the first free throw and intentionally missed the second before the Terrapins swatted the ball out of bounds with 1.7 seconds to go. Gill caught the inbounds pass in the lane and dropped in an uncontested jumper to force overtime. "Our guys were down. I was down," Turgeon said. "I said, Lets make this the best five minutes of the year. They didnt believe me the first time I said it. But I said it 15 times during the timeout." Overtime began with Allen making two straight layups for a 68-64 lead. The guard then blocked a shot before adding a free throw. The Cavaliers used a layup by Gill to close to 71-69 with 1:13 left, but they would not score again. Despite the loss, Virginia will head into the ACC tournament as a top seed for only the second time. "I feel like we just need to get back in practice and just get back to what we know -- and thats defence and not letting people penetrate," Gill said. Maryland opened the second half with an 11-2 run, turning a one-point deficit into a 45-37 lead. After Wells made two free throws, Perrantes answered with a foul-line jumper. Wells then made a basket and added two foul shots before Allen popped a 3-pointer and Shaquille Cleare added a layup. The teams combined for only two field goals over the next 5 minutes, but Virginia made five free throws during that span to close to 47-44 with 11:34 left. Minutes later, Joe Harris hit a 3-pointer to end a 6-0 spree that put the Cavaliers in front 52-51 with 8:30 to play. Maryland went ahead 62-58 with 2:39 remaining but could not make the lead stand up. Perrantes scored 12 first-half points on four 3-pointers, including one in the closing seconds that put the Cavaliers ahead 35-34. As an expression of gratitude to the lone senior on the squad, Turgeon started seldom-used forward John Auslander, who missed his only shot before being replaced with just under 4 minutes elapsed.
