MONTREAL - The first part of the Scotties Tournament of Hearts went perfectly for defending champion Rachel Homan. Julian Draxler Jersey . The Canada skip from Ottawa led her squad to a perfect 11-0 round-robin record with a 7-3 victory over New Brunswicks Andrea Crawford (6-5) at the Maurice Richard Arena on Friday. Homan will face Chelsea Careys Manitoba rink (9-2) in the first-versus-second game Friday night. Carey clinched the No. 2 spot with a 6-4 victory over P.E.Is Kim Dolan (3-8). Homans rink is looking to become the first to go through the Scotties undefeated since Linda Moore in 1985. Homan was satisfied her team recovered from the disappointment of losing at the Olympic trials in December. "We played really well," the 24-year-old said. "Some people might have doubted how we were going to do after the trials and I think we regrouped and got over it." Carey said she struggled against P.E.I because she wasnt feeling well and hadnt slept much but will be fine for the showdown with Homan. She is 7-5 in her career against the Canada skip. "Its great to win but its not life and death," she said. "Were not looking at it as a do or die thing so we can just go play and see what happens. "Either way, you get another chance." Saskatchewans Stefanie Lawton (8-3) finished third and will face Albertas Val Sweeting (8-3) in the three-versus-four game Saturday morning. The winner advances to the semifinal Saturday afternoon against the 1-2 loser. Lawton ended the round robin on a downer — watching her last rock hit and roll just out of the rings to give Yukons Sarah Koltun (2-9) a steal for a 6-5 win. "We didnt quite finish it off," said Lawton. "Just a bad shot by myself, otherwise we would have won. "In the end it doesnt make a difference for us. It would have been nice to finish that game off, but well rest up and get ready for the playoffs." Koltun was a crowd favourite all week and the 2,061 spectators gave her a long ovation after her upset win. The 20-year-old from Whitehorse is the first player ever to skip at the Canadian junior championships and the Scotties in the same year. "Its been really cool," said Koltun. "Its so much bigger. "You feel like superstars here, where at juniors youre just another team. The crowd loved us and we loved them. Its been incredible." Nova Scotias Heather Smith (4-7) ended the round robin with a 7-6 win over Ontarios Allison Flaxey (3-8). The final is Sunday night. Adrien Rabiot Jersey . Ben Street scored twice for the Heat (17-5-1), who won their fourth game in a row and 13th in their last 14 outings. Brett Bulmer scored the lone goal for the Wild (6-11-0), who dropped their sixth straight contest. Thomas Meunier Paris Saint-Germain Jersey . A receiver doesnt make the catch on a passing play and instantly motions to the ref – and everybody else – for a pass interference flag. http://www.parissaintgermainfcstore.com/Women-Marquinhos-Paris-Saint-Germain-Jersey/ . -- Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer will be out three to six weeks with a stress fracture of the third finger of his right hand.With the Toronto Raptors celebrating their 20th anniversary season in 2014-15, Josh Lewenberg and TSN.ca take a look back at the franchises first two decades with weekly Top Five lists, counting down the standout and signature players and moments in team history. 5. Morris Peterson Raptors shooting stats (7 seasons): .371 3P%, .421 FG%, .782 FT% Career shooting stats (11 seasons): .373 3P%, .418 FG%, .773 FT% Before it became widely recognized as the most efficient shot in basketball, Peterson made his living spotting up in the corners as a long-time member of the Raptors. Bridging the gap between the Vince Carter and Chris Bosh eras in Toronto, Peterson was at his best when he could play off one of the teams All-Stars. With Carter and Bosh drawing in attention, Peterson - the Raptors all-time leader in games played - saw plenty of open looks but hes best known for what he could do with the contested ones. No one made circus shots look easier than Peterson. Case in point, one of his last, yet most memorable moments as a Raptor. Undermanned and trailing by three in the dying seconds of a game against the Wizards on Mar. 30, 2007, the Raptors forward threw up a desperation three-ball from 31-feet out to beat the buzzer and force overtime. There are several of deserving players that could make a case for this spot, but Peterson gets the nod for longevity and theatrics. 4. Donyell Marshall Raptors shooting stats (2 seasons): .410 3P%, .457 FG%, .759 FT% Career shooting stats (15 seasons): .350 3P%, .435 FG%, .731 FT% Coming over in a trade from Chicago early in the 2003-04 season, Marshall blossomed in his role as the Raptors stretch four in an era before the hybrid position became all the rage in the NBA. The 6-foot-9 forward could rebound and defend better than hes given credit but his bread and butter, at that stage of his career, came from beyond the arc. Marshall shot a hair better than 40 per cent from long range in his first season with Toronto and topped out at 42 per cent off the bench the following year. His most memorable night came on Mar. 13, 2005 when he set the franchise mark and tied Kobe Bryant NBA record making 12 three-pointers in a win over the 76ers, scoring a career-high 38 points in the process. 3. Anthony Parker Raptors shooting stats (3 seasons): .424 3P%, .460 FG%, .829 FT% Career shooting stats (9 seasons): .404 3P%, .444 FG%, .794 FT% Quietly, yet consistently, Parker was one of the most reliable spot-up shooters to wear a Raptor uniform. The former Euroleague star shot at least 39 per cent from long range in each of his three seasons with Toronto, topping out at 44 per cent in his debut, helping the team to its first ever division title. A beneficiary of Jose Calderons pinpoint passing and the attention opposing defences would focus on Bosh, Parker exceelled from the corners. Giovani Lo Celso Paris Saint-Germain Jersey. He ranks fourth on the Raptors all-time three-point field goal percentage list (.424) and is responsible for the third (.441) and fourth (.438) best single-season shooting marks. 2. Jose Calderon Raptors shooting stats (8 seasons): .388 3P%, .481 FG%, .877 FT% Career shooting stats (10 seasons): .413 3P%, .479 FG%, .874 FT% Calderon is best known for his playmaking and leadership abilities at the point guard position, but he also happened to be one of the most efficient shooters in Raptors history. Most impressively, hes a self-made shooter. As a rookie coming over from Spain, Calderon connected on just seven of his 43 attempts (16 per cent) from beyond the arc. Seven years later, the season he was traded, the Spaniard shot an absurd 46 per cent from three-point range to lead the NBA. In 2009 he set the franchise record for consecutive free throws made (87), also the second-longest streak in league history. Hes ranked ninth on the Raptors all-time field goal percentage list, the only guard in the top 10. The only knock on his shot: he didnt use it enough. 1. Dell Curry Raptors shooting stats (3 seasons): .390 3P%, .420 FG%, .833 FT% Career shooting stats (16 seasons): .402 3P%, .457 FG%, .843 FT% Curry came to the Raptors in his mid-30s and would play his final three NBA seasons in Toronto just as they were starting to turn the corner. His shooting stroke was a thing of beauty - the smoothest in Raptors history and one of the finest this league has ever seen. Unsurprisingly, the vets biggest moments came on the biggest stage. Hitting 20 of his 45 three-point attempts in three trips to the playoffs with Toronto, Curry was relied upon late in games because of his knack for making crucial jumpers. His most memorable shot came with less than a minute remaining in Game 7 of the second-round series against Philadelphia in 2011. Curry knocked down a trey to pull within one - those would be the last points scored in the series, leading to Vince Carters infamous fadeaway that would rim out in the final seconds. A year later he was at it again, scoring 14 of his team-high 17 points in the fourth quarter of a deciding Game 5 against Detroit, nearly carrying his team to an unlikely series win without the injured Carter. He passed on that gift to his son, Steph - currently one of, if not the best shooters in the NBA.
