RALEIGH, N. Edgar Martinez Jersey .C. -- North Carolina States Reynolds Coliseum new look has been completed, and just in time for a new school year.The $35 million renovation project to add modern touches while preserving the history of the nearly 70-year-old, tradition-rich campus arena was finished in August. The programs displaced for more than a year have moved back in, Reynolds hosts its first sports event Friday and the school has scheduled a re-opening ceremony next week.Athletic director Debbie Yow said all thats left are small details such as touch-up paint.I think we moved in maybe two weeks later than the original plan, Yow said. Thats a small price to pay.Work began on Reynolds in March 2015, displacing sports such as womens basketball, volleyball, gymnastics and wrestling to play at temporary venues through the 2015-16 sports season.Reynolds opened in 1949 near the heart of the Raleigh campus. It was best known as the half-century home to the mens basketball program -- spanning the careers of program greats such as David Thompson and late coach Jim Valvano -- before the program moved off campus in 1999.The project included ripping out about 2,800 seats and shifting the arena bowl to one end of the building. That made room for a sports walk of fame, which weaves around Reynolds from a grand hall and through the concourses.Theres also a video control room to produce broadcasts of Wolfpack sporting events for the newly created Atlantic Coast Conference digital channel and eventually the ACC Network when the TV channel launches in 2019.Still, the arena bowl has a familiar look, though with a down-sized capacity of around 5,500.The entrance hall features display cases honoring coaches such as late Hall of Fame womens basketball coach Kay Yow and athletes who went on to compete professionally or in the Olympics. Interactive touchscreens allow visitors to navigate through the Wolfpacks sports history, including a large multi-panel wall featuring trivia questions, photos and digital wolves who occasionally howl before running off screen.The school also mounted the buildings old noise meter -- a tower of light bulbs that lit up one-by-one -- above the hall. Visitors can operate it with a sliding switch that sends audio from an old radio game broadcast echoing through the hall.The volleyball team plays here Friday against Delaware. The official re-opening is set for Sept. 16 with the latest inductions to the walk of fame.Its been four years of planning and 16 months of construction, said Michael Lipitz, a deputy athletics director who served as chairman of the project committee. It was good to move the teams back in last week and see the student-athletes out on the court practicing.Were ready for prime time and ready for people to experience everything thats here now.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap and the APs college basketball site at http://collegebasketball.ap.org ;Robinson Cano Jersey . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. Alex Colome Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. http:///...rnandez-Kids-Jersey/ . He says so-called TRT is only one problem and he wants to go even further than the ban. "Its about time," St-Pierre told reporters at a promotional event in Montreal on Friday. "I think its a good thing. It was all about offense in college football this past weekend.Pittsburgh and Syracuse played the highest-scoring game in Bowl Subdivision history, a total of three FBS teams cracked 70 points and the all-time receiving yards record fell.The total of 137 points in Pittsburghs 76-61 win over Syracuse were the most in a major-college game, beating the previous high of 136 in Navys 74-62 victory over North Texas and Boise States 69-67 win over Nevada, both in 2007. That Boise State game went four overtimes, however.The last time Pittsburgh scored 76 points was in a shutout of Temple in 1977. The Panthers, who rolled up 56 points on Duke in their previous game, have scored 50 or more in consecutive games for the first time since Tony Dorsett was playing for them in 1975.Middle Tennessee piled up the most points Saturday, outscoring Florida Atlantic 77-56. The Blue Raiders hadnt scored so much since hanging 76 on North Alabama in 1927.Navy, which won 75-31 at SMU, has scored 60 points in back-to-back games for the first time since 1917.Individually, Western Michigans Corey Davis became the career FBS leader in receiving yards, catching eight balls for 81 yards against Toledo on Friday to push his total to 5,068. Davis broke the record of 5,005 yards set by Trevor Insley of Nevada from 1996-99.Some more statistical nuggets:---PUMPHREYS QUESTSan Diego States Donnel Pumphrey has slowed down in his bid to break Ron Daynes all-time rushing record.Pumphrey was held to 53 yards on 18 carries in a loss to Colorado State a week after gaining 76 yards on 17 attempts in a loss to Wyoming. Those are his two lowest totals of the season. Kyle Seager Jersey. ith 6,127 career yards, he needs to average 109 in his last two games to move past the 6,397 Dayne amassed at Wisconsin from 1996-99. Pumphrey will wind up his career in the Mountain West championship game at Wyoming and in a bowl.ITS A LONELY JOBNavy has punted a total of two times in four November games, once against Tulsa and once against East Carolina. The Midshipmens 24 punts are fewest in the nation. Interestingly, Navy has split what little work there is between two punters (Alex Barta and Erik Harris).FOREMAN FOREMOST RUSHERDOnta Foreman of Texas wrapped up the season with a rushing average of 184.4 yards a game, which will hold up as the highest in the nation. Pumphrey is second at 159 yards a game, a drop from 177.9 two weeks ago.TOP TACKLERUConn safety Obi Melifonwus 24 tackles against Tulane matched the national season high. It was the seventh time this season hes made 10 or more stops. Melifonwus previous high was 13 against Cincinnati last year.New Mexico States Rodney Butler also had 24 tackles, against New Mexico the second week of the season.MORE SCORE 40A total of 17 teams head into December averaging at least 40 points a game. Thats the most since at least 2000. Louisville and Oklahoma are tied for the national lead, at 45.3 points a game.The per-team scoring average of 30.2 is ahead of last years record 29.7.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 ;Wholesale Jerseys From China China Jerseys WholesaleWholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys From China Discount NFL JerseysJerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
