STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Mississippi State stars Victoria Vivians and Morgan William were at their best during the 10th-ranked Bulldogs 79-68 victory over No. 8 Texas on Sunday.That wasnt a surprise. Its what the Bulldogs did without those two on the floor that turned some heads.William scored 23 points and Vivians added 19, but it was a second-quarter run largely led by the teams reserves that helped put the Longhorns away.Our kids, that second quarter, really answered the bell and got after it, Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer said. We got some real critical stops and then we really were attacking the rim.Mississippi State (4-0) pulled away in the second quarter thanks to some valuable minutes from the bench -- especially backup guards Roshunda Johnson and Jazzmun Holmes -- and a suffocating defense that held the Longhorns without a field goal for the final 9:40 of the half.The Bulldogs had a 26-9 advantage in the second quarter to turn a tie game into a 42-25 halftime lead. Johnson had seven points and Holmes added three during the run while Vivians and William were their biggest cheerleaders on the sideline.Everybodys stepped their game up, Vivians said. Everybody can go to the basket. Everyone can score.Texas (1-2) had 15 turnovers in the first half and 24 in the game.We got a little frantic in some situations, Texas coach Karen Aston said.Brooke McCarty led Texas with 19 points, and Ariel Atkins added 18. Texas lost despite shooting a respectable 27 of 56 from the field (48.2 percent) and outrebounded the Bulldogs 36-26.The Longhorns pulled within 48-40 in the third quarter, but couldnt get any closer.There were a whole lot of positives, Aston said. Even the turnovers, most of them were in the first half. We pulled within in eight points, but then we forced some things. Young kids trying to make something happen every possession.William shot 5 of 11 from the field and 13 of 14 from the free-throw line while also adding six rebounds and three steals. Dominique Dillingham added 10 points for the Bulldogs.INSTANT OFFENSEMississippi State played 10 players on Sunday, including nine who were on the roster last season. The only new player was Johnson, a 5-foot-7 junior guard who transferred from Oklahoma State and sat out last season.Shes been excellent so far this season, averaging nearly 12 points per game as a consistent scoring option with the second team off the bench.BIG PICTURETexas: Its been a tough start to the season for Texas, which has now lost two of its first three games. Both of those losses -- against Stanford and Mississippi State -- came against good teams, but they provide ample evidence that the Longhorns have some work to do to be among the nations elite.Mississippi State: The Bulldogs lost to Texas in Austin last season, but won against the Longhorns with relative ease on their home court. Vivians -- who is inarguably the teams best scorer -- had a solid game, but it was the consistent production from others like William, Dillingham, Chinwe Okorie and the bench that was most important for Mississippi State.LIMPING SCHAEFERSchaefer was noticeably limping during the second half of the game, and the coach said he believed it was his due to a case of gout in his feet. Vivians and William had to nearly carry Schaefer into the postgame press conference.UP NEXTTexas: The Longhorns return home to face Northwestern State on Wednesday.Mississippi State: The Bulldogs face Oregon on Friday in the opening round of the Waikiki Beach Marriott Tournament in Honolulu on Friday.----Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP Nike Roshe Shoes China .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward James Neal on injured reserve Tuesday.

Chris Froome crossed the line arm-in-arm with his Team Sky teammates as he joined the elite club of three-time Tour de France winners, while Andre Greipel won the final stage in Paris on Sunday.Froome, already Britains only multiple-Tour winner, is now one of just eight men -- not counting the disgraced Lance Armstrong -- to have won three or more Tours, and will have his sights set on record five-time winners Jacques Anquetil, Miguel Indurain, Bernard Hinault and Eddy Merckx.Froome, who had been able to enjoy a glass of champagne and a sip of beer on the 113km stage from Chantilly, met his wife Michelle and baby boy Kellan just after the finish line as the celebrations began in earnest.In his podium speech, Froome thanked his team and family before paying tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack in Nice on Bastille Day, midway through the Tour.This tour has obviously taken place against the backdrop of terrible events in Nice and we pay our respects, once again, to those who lost their lives in this terrible event, he said.Of course these kind of events put sport into perspective but they also show why the values of sport are so important to free society.We all love the Tour de France because it is unpredictable but we love the Tour more for what stays the same -- the passion of the fans from every nation along the roadside, the beauty of the French countryside and the bonds of friendship created through sport.These things will never change. Vive le Tour et Vive la France.The 31-year-old had effectively sealed victory by staying upright on Saturdays stage 20 to Morzine ahead of Sundays largely processional stage.With a four-minute advantage in his pocket he was able to sit up and enjoy the moment with his team-mates as others finished ahead, although the final general classification retained the time gaps from Saturday night.That meant Froome won the Tour by four minutes and five seconds from Frenchman Romain Bardet.ddddddddddddGerman Greipel, also the winner in Paris 12 months ago, pipped the late-charging world champion Peter Sagan to the line in the traditional sprint on the Champs-Elysees after racing clear of Norways Alexander Kristoff on the run-in.French hope Bryan Coquard was denied the chance to go for victory as he was held up by a late mechanical, while Marcel Kittel was also hit by a mechanical in the closing stages and was unable to contest the sprint.Kristoff attacked first but Greipel, with his Lotto-Soudal lead-out train doing its job on the final approach, burst clear to make sure he did not leave this Tour empty-handed.I cant describe it, said Greipel. Im just super proud of what weve achieved today. Ive raced for three weeks for that. The team kept believing in me.Weve tried many times and we walk away from the Tour with two stage wins, with Thomas De Gendt and myself. This morning, we had a good plan. There was a head wind at the end. I just tried to stay calm.Once we hit the finale, we were one guy too short so I chose to follow Alexander Kristoff who was the strongest. But this is another stage win at the Tour de France. Its wonderful.While Froome was confirmed as the overall winner, Tinkoffs Sagan wrapped up his fifth straight victory in the points classification.The 23-year-old Briton Adam Yates of Orica-BikeExchange took the white jersey as the best young rider in the race -- the first Briton to win the category -- while Sagans team-mate Rafal Majka was confirmed in the king of the mountains polka-dot jersey.Nairo Quintana was third overall, four minutes and 21 seconds behind Froome, while Yates was fourth, a further 21 seconds back.
