Thursday Sports Headlines

Posted Nov 28, 2019 1:01 PM

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Iowa’s run of success against Nebraska has been predicated on its ground game. Recently it has not been working so well. The 19th-ranked Hawkeyes have rolled up more than 260 yards rushing in each of the last three meetings with Nebraska and have had a running back go for more than 100 four straight years. The Cornhuskers need a win to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2016.


LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) — Devon Dotson scored 31 points, Udoka Azubuike had seven of his 29 in overtime and No. 4 Kansas outlasted Dayton 90-84 to win its third Maui Invitational title. The Flyers and Jayhawks spent much of the afternoon trading leads and highlight-reel plays in a bleacher-shaking atmosphere inside the bandbox Lahaina Civic Center.


TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Oskar Sundqvist had two goals before leaving with an injury, and the St. Louis Blues beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3. Zach Sanford and Brayden Schenn scored in the third period and Jordan Binnington stopped 32 shots for the Blues.


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — The Battle Line Rivalry is still in its relative infancy for Arkansas and Missouri. But for the first time in the sixth such meeting, the game serves as nothing more than for bragging rights. Arkansas will not have enough wins to reach a bowl game and Missouri has been banned from the postseason this year by the NCAA. The game on Friday will be played in Little Rock.


CANCUN, Mexico (AP) — Oscar Tshiebwe scored 19 points and grabbed a career-high 18 rebounds to lead West Virginia to a 75-63 win over Wichita State in the championship game of the Cancun Classic. Emmitt Matthews Jr. added 13 points for the Mountaineers, who pulled away in the second half.


CANCUN, Mexico (AP) — AJ Green scored 26 points, including Northern Iowa’s last 10 points, leading the Panthers to a 78-72 win over South Carolina in the third-place game at the Cancun Challenge. Trae Berhow had five 3-pointers and 15 points for the Panthers (7-1), who bounced back after a heart-breaking five-point loss to West Virginia a night earlier.


FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Nate Kennell scored 22 points and Bradley beat Kansas State 73-60 as 2019 NCAA Tournament teams met in the third-place game of the second annual Fort Myers Tip-Off. Kennell made 6 of 8 3-pointers for the Braves (5-2) and Darrell Brown, who made 4 of 8 behind the arc, added 15 points.


GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (AP) — Haanif Cheatham scored a career-high 26 points, Dachon Burke Jr. added a career-best 19 and Nebraska got rolling with 61% shooting in the second half for a 74-67 victory over South Florida in the third-place game of the Cayman Islands Classic. Nebraska (4-3) shot 55% overall to conclude the tournament with two wins sandwiched around an 85-66 loss to George Mason.
