MILAN, Italy -- Newly crowned Serie A champion Juventus was held by Cagliari to 1-1, but Saturdays result did little to dampen spirits on the day it was presented with the trophy. Leighton Vander Esch Jersey . There was a party atmosphere at the Juventus Stadium and the home players walked out of the tunnel holding their children, who were wearing team kits. Victor Ibarbo threatened to spoil the 29th title celebrations when he burst forward from his own half in the 12th minute, going between Juventus players Claudio Marchisio and Andrea Barzagli, before firing under goalkeeper Marco Storari. It was the first goal Juventus conceded in six games. Sebastian Giovinco almost levelled but curled a free kick onto the crossbar. Juventus equalized after an hour. Arturo Vidal headed Marchisios cross back across goal for Mirko Vucinic to tap in. It was the fourth game in a row that Vucinic scored against Cagliari. Juve sealed a second successive title with three rounds to go last weekend. "The lads have been the protagonists throughout these two years," Juventus coach Antonio Conte said. "They have done great things, which are down to their sacrifice and their will to keep their minds on the job. They have grown as a group, they are the real architects of all this. "They have always shown they want to win. Even today, we gave everything, we put our hearts into it and we deserved to win. Winning is always difficult, you should never be satisfied though. We still have one more game and then a deserved holiday. We need to rest, recuperate and recharge the batteries." Later, Catania beat already-relegated Pescara 1-0. Pescara goalkeeper Mattia Perin kept his side in the match, pulling off several fantastic saves in the first half. Catania took the lead six minutes after the interval. Gonzalo Bergessio crossed to the far post for the onrushing Alejandro Gomez to slot home. Pablo Barrientos also hit the post direct from a corner kick. Bo Scarbrough Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Connor Williams Jersey . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. http://www.cheapdallascowboysjerseys.com/ .C. -- Rodney Hood connected from all over the court while freshman Jabari Parker was busy swatting shots and scoring in transition. No team has been more dominant at the Olympics over the past 20 years then the U.S. womens basketball team, winning five straight gold medals.Theyll try and keep that streak going in Rio.Training time is always our biggest challenge, said three-time gold medalist Sue Bird. When you get to the medal rounds its one and done, but we have a lot of experience in those games and look to continue our recent success.The Americans have won 41 consecutive Olympic contests dating back to the bronze medal game in 1992, winning by an average of nearly 30 points a game. With nine players, including Bird, Diana Taurasi and Tamika Catchings, returning from the London Games, the U.S. is a heavy favorite to win another gold medal.Olympic newcomers Elena Delle Donne, Brittney Griner and Breanna Stewart will add a dynamic mix to the veteran core.The only potential thorn for the U.S. is lack of training time. While most other countries get to spend months together preparing, the U.S. has about two weeks before its first game. Although a lot of that time has been spent crisscrossing the country.Im hoping that they remember some of the stuff that we did last year at the World Championship and a couple years ago at the Olympics and maybe February at that little training camp that we had, U.S. coach Geno Auriemma said. Fortunately, theyre a lot of the same players that played. So we havent changed a whole lot. But theres not much time and theres not much that you can do to get ready. You just have to trust that theyre ... They never let you down. They always seem to respond when you need them to.The U.S. is in a difficult group with Serbia, China, Canada, Spain and Senegal.Obviously were in a tough group, Auriemma added. Because anytime you have the European champions like Serbia already in the group and Canada, the Americas champion, those are two really good teams. And then you add in China and Spain.Here are a few other things to watch for in womens basketball at the Olympics:A LITTLE REVENGEThe U.S. is also out for a little bit of revengge. Mike White Jersey. The last time they played in Brazil at the 2006 World Championship, they lost to Russia in the semifinals. It was their only defeat in either the Olympics or worlds since 1992.I hadnt thought about that until you brought it up, Bird said laughing. The fans down there definitely know their basketball and like rooting against us. As the deficit against Russia grew, the cheers started getting louder for them.MEDAL CONTENDERSWhile the gold medal is most likely a foregone conclusion, the other two spots on the podium are up for grabs. France was the silver medalists in 2012 and Australia has won either a silver or bronze at every Olympics since 1996. Other candidates for a medal could be Serbia, which won the European championship, and Canada.SCHEDULE CHANGEThis year there will be a change in the competition structure. With the men and women playing in different arenas until the quarterfinal rounds, teams can play on consecutive days. The U.S. doesnt begin play until Sunday, Aug. 7 against Senegal. The Americans then play the next day against Spain. There will only be three or four games per day now instead of the six there used to be. Its the first time this format is being used since the 1984 Olympic in Los Angeles.GOLDEN GIRLSIf the U.S. does win another gold, Taurasi, Bird and Catchings will join Teresa Edwards and Lisa Leslie as the only basketball players to win four gold medals.SLAM DUNKAustralia center Liz Cambage became the first woman to dunk in the Olympics in London. Will the 6-foot-8 star have an encore in Brazil? Keep an eye on Brittney Griner, the odds are the 6-8 American will add her name to the list.IMPRESSIVE STREAKSOnly two other traditional team sports have longer consecutive gold medal streaks than the U.S. womens team. The American mens basketball team won seven consecutive golds from 1936-68. The India mens field hockey team won six in a row from 1928-56.
