• No. 3 Arizona beats Kansas State 72-68 in Maui

    Updated: 9 hr ago

    LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) — Arizona came to Maui to face adversity. There was some back in the desert through the first four games, though most of that was self-inflicted. Faced with their first big challenge of the season, the third-ranked Wildcats went toe-to-toe with Kansas State and put themselves on the brink of a tournament title. Kaleb Tarczewski scored 18 points, Gabe York added 15 and No. 3 Arizona hung on to win its first close game of the season, beating Kansas State 72-68 Tuesday in the Maui Invitational semifinals. "We're very, very proud of tonight's win," coach Sean Miller said. "We feel like we beat a great team, and that's why you come to Maui: to challenge (yourself).

  • No. 13 Iowa St falls to Terps 72-63 in CBE Classic

    Updated: 9 hr ago

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Iowa State was supposed to be the veteran team and Maryland the wide-eyed bunch of freshmen. It sure didn't look that way Tuesday night. Their composure waning down the stretch, the No. 13 Cyclones lost to the Terps in the title game of the CBE Classic. Jared Nickens and Jake Layman had 15 points apiece to lead Maryland to a 72-63 victory before a crowd full of Iowa State fans in the Sprint Center. "They certainly played like the more poised team," Cyclones coach Fred Hoiberg said. "It's how you respond to adversity and this certainly, a lot hit us tonight. We didn't respond very well." That was clear in the closing minutes, when Dustin Hogue missed an easy layup and then hacked the Terps

  • Maryland beats No. 13 Iowa St 72-63 in CBE Classic

    Updated: 10 hr ago

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mark Turgeon gathered his Maryland coaching staff in his hotel room the night before facing Iowa State, and the scouting report he got was so sobering that he offered a solution. "I said, 'Should we just forfeit?'" Turgeon recalled. Good thing nobody took him up on that idea. Jared Nickens and Jake Layman scored 15 points apiece to lead a balanced offense, and Maryland shut down the No. 13 Cyclones for a 72-63 victory Tuesday night in the CBE Classic title game. Dez Wells added 14 points and Melo Trimble scored 11 for the Terrapins (5-0), who built a 15-point lead with 3 minutes left before hanging on down the stretch. "I thought we were terrific on defense.

  • Texas Tech turns back Northwestern State 75-64

    Updated: 11 hr ago

    LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith has seen teams wilt due to a lack of focus during the days before Thanksgiving throughout his 24-year head coaching career. His Red Raiders appeared to be doing the same in the waning moments of the first half Tuesday night. They held an 18-point lead against Northwestern State with 6:28 left before halftime. Three Red Raiders turnovers over the final 4:34 of the first half, however, allowed the Demons to trim the deficit to nine points at halftime. The Red Raiders lead soon dipped to just four points. "Whenever you're playing a game at this stage, right before you break for Thanksgiving, it's always been tough to keep guys focused," Smith said. "I just told them you must'v

  • Turner leads No. 7 Texas over St. Francis 78-46

    Updated: 11 hr ago

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — While Texas figures out what to do at point guard, the Longhorns have the luxury of leaning on a frontcourt loaded with talent. Freshman big man Myles Turner had 25 points and 10 rebounds while tying a school shooting record, and No. 7 Texas rolled over Saint Francis 78-46 on Tuesday night to push the Longhorns to 5-0 for the first time since 2009. One of the top recruits in the country, Turner had been quiet in Texas' two previous wins. But he showed a confident touch on 11-of-12 shooting (92 percent) to go with his typical tough defense. He made three 3-pointers and had three of Texas' eight blocks. Turner acknowledged he'd been frustrated by scoring just 10 points in the previous two games.

    STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Brittany Atkins scored 17 points and No. 20 Oklahoma State shook off a slow start in a 73-43 victory over Morgan State on Tuesday night. Brittney Martin added 14 points and Liz Donohoe 10 for the Cowgirls (4-1), who extended their home winning streak against nonconference opponents to 36. The Lady Bears (2-4) were led by Tracey Carrington with 15 points and Braennan Farrar with 12. Morgan State shot just 26.2 percent, making 16 of 61 shots, including only 3 of 19 from 3-point range (15.8 percent).
