NEW ORLEANS -- Playing with a cast on his broken throwing arm, Louisiana-Lafayette quarterback Terrance Broadway wasnt as prolific as usual. Fortunately for the Ragin Cajuns, they had Corey Trim to make a game-changing play on defence. Trim returned an interception 82 yards for a touchdown, Hunter Stover hit a go-ahead 27-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, and Louisiana-Lafayette held off Tulane 24-21 on Saturday night for its third straight New Orleans Bowl victory. Tulane set up for a 48-yard field goal try in the final seconds, but Cairo Santos, the 2012 Lou Groza award winner as the nations best kicker, missed just left. Elijah McGuire and Alonzo Harris each had touchdowns runs for the Ragin Cajuns (9-4), who led 21-0 on Trims interception -- the longest in the bowl games history -- against Nick Montana. But Tulane rallied to tie it at 21 on three TD runs by Orleans Darkwa. Broadway passed for 143 yards and ran for 33, but took a lot of hits in the second half before being replaced by Jalen Nixon in the fourth quarter. Devin Powell replaced Montana in the first half and passed for 223 yards for Tulane (7-6), but had a pass intercepted by Sean Thomas, a play that set up ULLs winning field goal. It wasnt clear until kickoff who was going to play quarterback for either team. ULL coach Mark Hudspeth had all but ruled out Broadway, who broke his right (throwing) arm Nov. 30. Tulane coach Curtis Johnson said he was unsure if he could start Montana, who had struggled much of the season with injuries, including to his throwing shoulder. Both quarterbacks ended up starting, but only Broadway took the majority of his teams snaps. Ragin Cajuns needed six plays to produce the games opening score. Broadway completed his first two passes for first downs, and McGuire capped the drive with a 27-yard run in which he reached for the pylon as he was knocked out of bounds. Tulane crossed midfield on its third drive before running a trick play in which receiver Ryan Grant took a reverse handoff and threw deep, but it was intercepted by Thomas and returned to the ULL 27. That set up a six-play 73-yard scoring drive that ended with Alonzo Harris 15-yard scoring run. The Wave was in position to halve its deficit when Montana drove Tulane inside the ULL 20, but Trims interception along the sideline made it 21-0 early in the second quarter. Desperate for points, Tulane sought to convert on fourth-and-3 from its own 47. Powell threw deep and Devon Breaux made an adjustment to haul in an underthrown pass for a 42-yard gain, setting up Darkwas first TD from the 1. Jordan Sullens interception at the Tulane 35 set up the Green Waves second scoring drive, which began with Powells 49-yard pass to Grant. That led to Darwkas second score on a 7-yard run up the middle to make it 21-14 shortly before halftime. Darkwas tying touchdown came on a 22-yard run shortly after Derrick Strozier intercepted Broadways attempted throw-away along the sideline, returning it 20 yards to the 17. Sullen was later knocked out by a knee to the head and carted off the field, but was expected to be OK. Matthew Stafford Youth Jersey . He was 40.

It was a loss. But it was also a learning experience. Deron Williams and Joe Johnson had 24 points each to lift Brooklyn to a 94-87 win over the Raptors, making their first playoff appearance since 08. "I thought we played a little bit as expected as it is our first playoff game," Toronto coach Dwane Casey said.

Detroit Lions Jerseys . After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91.Toronto Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray is entering his 12th year in the CFL and his third with the Argos. Hes coming off a season where he was injured twice, missing eight games, but still put up some eye-popping numbers. Ray passed for just under 2,900 yards, completing 77 per cent of his passes. He threw 21 touchdowns against just two interceptions, finishing with a mind-numbing QB rating of 126.4. Ray sat down on Saturday for a chat with Mike Hogan, the play-by-play voice of the Argos on TSN 1050. MH: Whats different about camp this year? RR: The same basic philosophies are still there that coach (Scott Milanovich) carries on about how we practice, our tempo and what he expects from us, but there is a new feeling. We have a new defensive staff, a lot of new guys on defence. Offensively, were returning a lot of guys and coaches so it feels pretty similar. MH: On your side of the football, its good that you have the continuity that you do (Chad Kackert, Dontrelle Inman and Joe Eppele are the only 2013 starters not back this year). Can you put into words how important that is at this stage? RR: It just makes things so much easier. Thinking back to the first year here, there was so much to learn, trying to get used to a new system and trying to get used to all the guys around you. Last year and this year, weve all played together and have a lot of game experience together and were still running the same stuff out there, so youre not trying to get used to everything and you can go out there and try and improve on things from the previous year. MH: Whats your relationship like with Coach Milanovich in the off-season? Do you keep in contact continually trying to tweak things, or do you go home to Northern California and just ignore football for a couple of months? RR: I pretty much go home and get away from football. Hell call me every now and then and tell me whats going on, say if they have any new ideas and really just see how the off-season is going, but its only a couple of times a year. Other than that, I try to get back and relax and just get refreshed for the new year. MH: Your first two seasons in Toronto saw very different results. The first year couldnt have gone any better, winning the 100th Grey Cup. Last year, everything was going fine when you were on the field, but you had to deal with a couple of injuries. When you look back at last season, just how frustrating was it? RR: It was, just missing so mucch time and having to watch and rehab and do all that.dddddddddddd It was fun to watch the guys play, to go out west and have that four-game winning streak, but not so much fun because youre sitting there watching and cant be out there playing. It was a weird year. We wrapped up first place and were just waiting around to see who we were going to play and had such high expectations and just werent able to get it done in the playoffs. MH: After the Argos were beaten badly in the 2010 Eastern Final by Montreal, some of them took it very hard, thought about it a lot in the off-season and used it as motivation. Did you think about losing last years Eastern Final often? RR: You think about it a lot, especially when you feel like you had a great opportunity to win the game. Sometimes when you get beaten pretty badly, its easier to swallow those than the ones that are close games where you had an opportunity to keep moving on. Its funny because were getting ready to play Hamilton in our next game (Thursday at Varsity Stadium), putting that film back on and then watching it (laughs) brings back a lot of not-so-good memories. So ya, that keeps you motivated. When you think about it, you try and work harder and you think about the next time you do get an opportunity like that to try and seize it. MH: There are still four running backs competing for the starting job. (Steve Slaton and Jeremiah Johnson are the new imports, up against returnee RB Curtis Steele. Also in the mix is University of Manitoba rookie Anthony Coombs) All of them seem to add something different to the mix. How would you assess the group? RR: Its been pretty fun watching them in camp. Curtis has a pretty good feel for what were trying to do out there. He gives a ton of effort on every play. The new guys are both very gifted athletes. Thats the position that we expect the most out of, with pass protection, running and catching out of the backfield and weve got three guys that can do it very well. Then you put Coombs in there and watching him, especially in one-on-one drills, he runs routes almost like a receiver, so hes going to be a good weapon for us. MH: Grey Cup or bust? RR: Thats what it is every year (smiles). Thats the expectation that (General Manager) Jim Barker and Coach Milanovich have put on us. Theyve built a great foundation here and we feel like we should be able to go out and win every year and have a chance to get to the Grey Cup. ' ' '
