PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Tobias Harris scored 34 points to lead the short-handed Sixers to a 115-106 victory over the Knicks. Harris had 23 points in the opening half to help Philadelphia to a 61-46 lead at the break. Shake Milton scored 19 points and Al Horford added 15 for the Sixers, who were without injured starters Joel Embiid (joh-EHL’ ehm-BEED’) and Ben Simmons.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Anthony Davis had 23 points and six rebounds in three quarters of the Los Angeles Lakers’ 116-86 thrashing of Golden State. Rajon Rondo (RAH’-zhahn RAHN’-doh) started in place of LeBron James and contributed 12 points with six assists as Los Angeles earned its seventh straight win and league-record 18th in a row on the road against the Western Conference. James sat out because of recurring soreness in his troublesome left groin.

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Third-ranked Gonzaga has nailed down its eighth consecutive West Coast Conference regular-season title. Filip Petrusev (peh-TROO’-shehv) had 21 points and nine rebounds for the Bulldogs in a 94-59 dismantling of San Diego. Corey Kispert scored 16 points and Ryan Woolridge had 15 for the 28-2 Zags, who rebounded from Saturday’s loss at BYU.

UNDATED (AP) — The Boston Bruins have increased their lead in the NHL’s Atlantic Division to seven points over the Tampa Bay Lightning. David Pastrnak’s (PAHS’-tur-nahks) league-leading 46th goal of the season was the eventual game-winner as the Bruins topped the Stars, 4-3. The Lightning lost their fourth in a row as Dominik Kubalik (koo-BAH’-lihk) recorded his first career hat trick with three goals in the third period of the Chicago Blackhawks’ 5-2 victory at Tampa.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Colton Parayko’s wraparound goal in overtime capped the St. Louis Blues’ comeback in a 3-2 win against the New York Islanders. Vince Dunn tied it with 1:44 left in regulation before Parayko sent St. Louis to its sixth straight win and a five-point lead over Colorado atop the Central Division. Jean-Gabriel Pageau (pa-ZHOH’) and Jordan Eberle had first-period goals for the Isles, who are two points ahead of Columbus for the first Eastern Conference wild card.

Lincoln – Dachon Burke Jr. and Cam Mack combined for 25 points, but No. 23 Ohio State rode a hot start until a 75-54 win over Nebraska Thursday evening.

Burke led NU with 13 points, while Mack added 12, but Ohio State (19-9, 9-8 Big Ten) limited the Huskers to 36 percent shooting, including 3-of-16 from 3-point range.

Caleb Wesson had 16 points and 18 rebounds for Ohio State to pace three Buckeyes in double figures. CJ Walker added 15 points, five boards and three assists, while Duane Washington Jr. chipped in 14 markers.

Ohio State used a blistering start from Washington, who scored all 14 of his points in the first half, to take a 43-27 lead at the break. 

Washington, who was 4-of-18 from 3-point range in the previous three games, hit his first three shorts beyond the arc, as the Buckeyes hit nine of their first 11 shots from the floor en route to building a 28-12 lead. The Huskers battled back, using a 8-2 run to pull within 30-18 after a Burke basket with 6:29 left in the half.

The Buckeyes used a 9-0 run to stretch the lead to 21 before Nebraska ran off seven straight points to climb within 39-25 with 1:16 left in the half.

Nebraska (7-21, 2-15 Big Ten) got to within 14 twice in the opening minutes of the second half, the last being at 47-33 after a Burke bucket, but the Buckeyes, who shot just 33 percent in the second half, were unable to slice into the deficit. Wesson had a double-double in the second half alone, finishing with 10 points and 13 boards in the final 20 minutes to help OSU to their six victory in the last eight contests.

The Huskers return to action on Sunday afternoon, taking on Northwestern Sunday afternoon at 3:15 p.m. Senior day ceremonies for Haanif Cheatham and Matej Kavas is set for 2:55 p.m. Sunday's game will be carried on BTN and on the Learfield IMG College Husker Sports Network.

Bloomington, Ind. - No. 22 Indiana erupted on a 23-4 surge in the first six minutes of the fourth quarter, as the Nebraska women's basketball team dropped an 81-53 decision to the Hoosiers at Assembly Hall on Thursday night.

Sophomore Leigha Brown led the Huskers with 22 points, but Hannah Whitish was the only other Nebraska player to manage double figures with 11, as NU shot a season-low 27.9 percent (17-61) from the field. The Huskers hit just 25 percent (4-16) from three-point range, including just 1-for-5 in the second half. 

Brown went 7-for-12 from the field and 7-of-10 at the free throw line, but the rest of the Huskers went just 10-for-49 from the floor for the game.

While the Huskers struggled to hit shots from start to finish, Indiana hit 50 percent (9-18) of its first-quarter shots, then went 12-for-19 (.632) from the field in the fourth quarter. The Hoosiers opened the fourth quarter by going 9-for-11 from the field, including 4-for-4 from three-point range to pull away down the stretch. Indiana's 31 fourth-quarter points were the most in any quarter by any opponent of the Huskers this season.

Indiana point guard Ali Patberg led all scorers with 26 points, including nine in the first 3:07 of the fourth quarter and IU's last eight points of the third quarter including a three-pointer at the buzzer to send the Hoosiers to the final period with a 50-41 lead. Patberg had 19 points in the second half.

Grace Berger added 15 points, seven rebounds and six assists for India, while Aleksa Gulbe and Mackenzie Holmes each pitched in 11 points inside for Indiana.

Indiana finished 48.5 percent (33-68) from the field, including 8-of-22 (.364) from three-point range. The Hoosiers out-rebounded Nebraska, 44-33, and matched Nebraska with 13 turnovers in the game.

Brown carried Nebraska in the first half hitting 4-of-7 shots from the field and all five of her free throw attempts to score 14 points. Eliely was the only other Husker to hit more than one shot from the floor in the half, but went just 2-for-8. Eliely had five points, two offensive rebounds and two steals in 13 first-half minutes.

The Huskers, who trailed 21-13 at the end of the first quarter, won the second quarter 14-12, despite going just 4-for-18 from the floor in the quarter. In the half, Nebraska hit just 25.7 percent (9-of-35) of its shots, including 3-of-11 threes (.273). The Huskers did go 6-of-7 at the free throw line. 

Indiana led 33-27 at the half by hitting 46.7 percent (14-30) of its shots, but went just 1-for-7 from long range and 4-of-7 at the free throw line. The Hoosiers, who were led by 11 points from Holmes and eight from Gulbe, out-rebounded NU 21-17 but lost the first-half turnover battle 8-5.

The Huskers will return to action at the Big Ten Tournament in Indianapolis, March 4-8.

NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball has appointed its first African American umpire crew chief, promoting Kerwin Danley to the position this week. A person familiar with the move spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the announcement has not yet been made. The 58-year-old Danley has worked two World Series and been on the field for 10 other postseason rounds, including the AL Championship Series last year. He’s also been chosen to call two All-Star Games. Danley called his first game in the majors in 1992 as a minor league fill-in and was hired to the MLB staff in 1998.

UNDATED (AP) — The rapidly spreading virus that has infected more than 81,000 people globally and left more than 2,800 dead continues to threaten the Tokyo Olympics which are scheduled to begin July 24. The three biggest soccer leagues in Asia have gone into recess, as the governments of China, South Korea and Japan try to contain the fallout of the rapidly spreading virus. The surge of postponements of sports events has spread from China, where the outbreak started, to South Korea and Japan.

Champaign, Ill. – A shorthanded Nebraska team rallied from a double-digit deficit to force a tie game early in the second half, but Illinois responded with an 11-1 run to regain control and defeat the Huskers 71-59 on Monday night at the State Farm Center.
 
Nebraska (7-20, 2-14 Big Ten Conference) trailed by six points at halftime and faced the same deficit three minutes into the second half when senior guard Haanif Cheatam made a free throw and junior guard Thorir Thornbjarnarson scored in the paint.
 
Illinois responded with a layup, but Thornbjarnarson made a 3-pointer and junior guard Jervay Green scored in transition on an assist from Cheatham to force a 46-46 tie with 15:12 remaining.
 
Illinois (18-9, 10-6) outscored the Huskers by 10 points over the next four minutes to assume control. The Illini went on to lead by as many as 14, while Nebraska drew within no closer than eight.
 
Nebraska played without sophomore point guard Cam Mack, who remained in Lincoln because of an illness. Mack entered Monday one of only five players in power conferences to average at least 12 points, six assists, four rebounds and one steal per game.
 
Without him, the Huskers counted on Cheatmam, who scored 14 points to pace four Nebraska players in double-figure scoring. Dachon Burke Jr. finished with 13 points, Thornbjarnarson scored 11 and freshman center Yvan Ouedraogo had 11 points to go with 10 points for his fifth double-double this season. Ouedraogo has had two straight double-double games, becoming the fourth Husker to accomplish that feat this season.
 
Nebraska shot 42 percent from the field overall while holding Illinois to 39-percent shooting, including just 5-of-19 on 3-pointers. But Illinois held a 42-34 advantage on points in the paint and out-rebounded the Huskers 48-35, including 19 offensive rebounds that resulted in 14 second-chance points. Ayo Dosunmo scored 18 points to pace the Illini, while Kofi Cockburn added 15 points and 10 rebounds.
 
Nebraska trailed by as many as 11 points in the first half and was behind 28-18 with 5:13 remaining before halftime but used a 9-0 run to pull within one point. Burke scored the first five points in the spurt, beginning with a three-point play when he converted a short jumper, was fouled and made a free throw.
 
Cheatham then scored four straight points in transition – two on a lay-up, two on free throws after being fouled on a layup attempt – to pull the Huskers within 28-27.
 
Cockburn ended the run for the Illini with a basket down low, but Ouedraogo scored in the paint, and after Cockburn made one of two free throws, Burke tied the game, 31-31 with 1:42 to play in the first half, on a layup.
 
Illinois, though, closed the half with two 3-pointers by Trent Frazier in the final 25 seconds, the last coming when the guard launched a prayer from 75 feet that left his hands barely before the halftime buzzer. A long replay confirmed Frazier's shot was good, and Illinois led 37-31 at halftime, and never trailed thereafter.
 
Nebraska returns home Thursday night to face Ohio State at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The game is set for 8 PM (CT) and will be carried on ESPN2.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Joey Logano has won at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the second straight year, pulling it out in a two-lap sprint to the finish that ended under caution. Logano put his No. 22 Ford for Team Penske in the victory lane by holding off runner-up Matt DiBenedetto, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Austin Dillon. DiBenedetto finished 0.491 behind Logano in his second race for the Wood Brothers, a Penske partner.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Ryan Newman has said through a statement read by Roush Racing president Steve Newmark that he suffered a head injury in his crash on the last lap of the Daytona 500 but did not disclose details. Newman wrote that he was fortunate to avoid any internal organ damage or broken bones, and that the doctors have been pleased with his progress over the last few days. He said he is looking forward to getting behind the wheel again. However, there’s no timetable for his return to competitive racing.

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Colorado has hired Karl Dorrell as its head football coach, 13 years after he left UCLA. The 56-year-old Dorrell comes to Boulder two weeks after Mel Tucker bolted for Michigan State and 72 hours after Dorrell was named assistant head coach of the Dolphins. Dorrell was 35-27 as UCLA’s head coach before embarking on a 14-season run in the NFL.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Patrick Reed closed with a 4-under 67 to take the Mexico Championship. Reed was two shots back with four to play before reeling off three straight birdies to overtake Bryan DeChambeau for his second World Golf Championship title.

DeChambeau appeared to seize control with five birdies in a six-hole stretch starting at No. 9.
