In a season of multiple firsts for Greater Western Sydney, another prestigious one looms tantalisingly within reach.With two more victories the Giants would secure an AFL flag faster than any non-Victorian club.Locked in to a home preliminary final showdown with Western Bulldogs on Saturday, GWS are hurtling towards the end of their fifth season.No club starting from scratch outside Victoria has won a flag that quickly.A Giants premiership this year would also create another record as none of the non-Victorian clubs won a flag in their first finals campaign.West Coast won their first flag in their sixth year in 1992 and added a second two years later.The two SA clubs got there almost as quickly, with the Crows taking seven years and Port Adelaide eight.The Giants were far from the fastest of the non-Victorian clubs to make a finals debut.West Coast made it in just their second season and the two South Australian clubs got there in their third.Some clubs had longer growing pains.Fremantle and the Brisbane Bears each had to wait till their ninth season before they got a taste of finals action.Brisbanes extraordinary hat-trick of titles from 2001-2003 didnt materialise until they became the Lions, having merged with Fitzroy in 1996.The two South Australian and West Australian clubs were built along different lines from the leagues two youngest clubs, Gold Coast and GWS, who were loaded with high draft picks but were relatively light on players with AFL experience.It (the list building method) was different, but whether the quality of player was any greater or less, thats subjective, said Giants general manager of football operations Wayne Campbell.But they didnt just go through the draft, they were given players essentially.Brisbane got the Fitzroy players that went up there that they could then either have or trade.It was done differently but all the sides had success relatively quickly.You look at Port Adelaide and Adelaide and West Coast when they came into the competition and when Fitzroy merged with Brisbane.They (all) had success in a relatively similar period of time (to the Giants), so its not unprecedented.THE WAIT FOR FINALS SUCCESS FROM NON-VICTORIAN CLUBS STARTING FROM SCRATCH:ADELAIDE*Year entered comp: 1991*Flags won: 2 (1997, 98)*How many seasons to make first final :3*How far in first finals campaign: Lost prelim finalBRISBANE (factors in Lions and Bears)*Year entered comp: 1987*Flags won: 3 (2001-2-3)*How many seasons to make first final: 9*How far in first finals campaign: Lost quarter-finalFREMANTLE*Year entered comp: 1995*Flags won: 0*How many seasons to make first final: 9*How far in fIrst finals campaign: Lost elimination finalGOLD COAST*Year entered comp : 2011*Flags won: 0*How many seasons to make first final: Yet to make finalsGREATER WESTERN SYDNEY*Year entered comp: 2012*Flags won: 0*How many seasons to make first final: 5*How far in first finals campaign: Through to prelim finalPORT ADELAIDE*Year entered comp: 1997*Flags won: 1 (2004)*How many seasons to make first finals: 3*How far in first finals campaign: Lost qualifying finalWEST COAST*Year entered comp: 1987*Flags won: 3 (1992, 1994, 2006)*How many seasons to make first final: 2*How far in first finals campaign: Lost elimination final Christian Folin Wild Jersey.

Eric Staal Wild Jersey Authentic. -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. Eric Staal Wild Jersey.C. -- Rodney Hood connected from all over the court while freshman Jabari Parker was busy swatting shots and scoring in transition. WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Isaac Haas enjoys playing alongside Caleb Swanigan on Purdues imposing front line, and its easy to see why.Its demoralizing for the other team when (Swanigan) is out there doing what he does, the 7-foot-2 Haas said.Swanigan had 21 points and a career-best 21 rebounds, Haas scored 18 points and the 15th-ranked Boilermakers beat Western Illinois 82-50 on Monday night.Swanigan went 7 for 16 from the field and 6 for 7 at the free-throw line in his ninth double-double of the season. He had 26 points and 10 rebounds in Saturdays 86-81 victory against No. 25 Notre Dame in the Crossroads Classic.Its the mindset I have every game, said Swanigan, who accomplished his impressive line in just 28 minutes. You have to go every time, and thats what I try to do every game. We just keep coming at you in waves. We are used to it, because we practice against each other every day.Purdue (10-2) also got 16 points from Vince Edwards in its fifth consecutive victory.Mike Miklusak, an Indiana native who attended high school 85 miles from the Purdue campus, led Western Illinois (3-8) with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Western Illinois shot 31 percent (19 for 61) from the field.The Boilermakers improved to 6-0 all-time against the Leathernecks.Swanigan, Haas and Vince Edwards combined for 33 points and 17 rebounds in the first half, helping Purdue to a 44-28 lead at the break.There were a lot of rebounds to be had tonight, but Caleb plays really hard, Purdue coach Matt Painter said. Its contagious when your best player plays harder than everybody else.dddddddddddd Basketball means a lot to him. There are lots of demands once a player gets to college, but he puts in the extra work every day.The Boilermakers raced out to a 13-3 lead, but Western Illinois closed to 27-22 with 6:16 remaining on a 3-pointer from Miklusak. The Boilermakers then responded with a 12-0 run.BIG PICTUREWestern Illinois: The Leathernecks showed an ability to shoot 3-pointers, going 8 for 15 from beyond the arc in the first half, but are a sub-.500 team in large part because their interior players lack the size or skill to play with teams whose low-post players are the focal point of the offense, like Purdue.Purdue: Big Ten Player of the Week Swanigan continues to dominate at both ends of the floor, a big reason why the Boilermakers are unbeaten since a Nov. 30 loss at Louisville. If Purdue defeats Norfolk State on Wednesday, it will take an 11-2 record into the Dec. 28 Big Ten opener against Iowa.BIGGIE NUMBERSSwanigan, whose nickname is Biggie, is averaging 20 points and 13.7 rebounds in the past three games, making 24 of 43 field-goal attempts against Cleveland State, Notre Dame and now Western Illinois.UP NEXTWestern Illinois: The Leathernecks dont play again until Dec. 29 when they visit Fort Wayne.Purdue: The Boilermakers host Norfolk State on Wednesday night.
