He recovered from a wild tee shot into the trees on 18 to two-putt from 35 feet to wrap up his eighth PGA title at 18 under. DeChambeau appeared to seize control with five birdies in a six-hole stretch starting at No. 9.

In the top of the fourth, Blake Paugh launched a solo home run to tie the score at 1-1, but Povich struck out the other three Wildcat hitters. Roseberry hit a one-out single in the bottom of the fourth, but was left on base after back-to-back strikeouts.

Arizona managed one hit in the top of the fifth, but Povich added two strikeouts as the other three Wildcat batters were retired. The Huskers were retired in order in the bottom half.

Paugh blasted another home run in the top of the sixth, a two-run shot, to put Arizona up by a 3-1 margin. NU put runners on second and third in the bottom of the sixth, but couldn't add to its score. Spencer Schwellenbach was hit-by-pitch in the leadoff spot before Luke Roskam reached on a one-out walk, but back-to-back strikeouts kept the Huskers from scoring.

The Wildcats were retired in order with a flyout and two groundouts in the top of the seventh. In the bottom half, NU also went down 1-2-3 with two groundouts before a foul pop-out.

In the top of the eighth, Perry retired all three Arizona hitters with three flyouts. Chick blasted a leadoff home run in the bottom of the eighth to trim the deficit to 3-2 before three consecutive outs ended the frame.

The McCook Community College baseball team was able to salvage the final game of a three-game set with Lamar Community College, splitting a pair of games Saturday. Lamar won the first game 8-2 and MCC came back to win the second game 14-4. Lamar opened the series Friday with a 3-2 win in 10 innings.

This series was moved from Lamar to McCook because of field conditions in Colorado.

On Saturday the Running Lopes took a 2-0 series lead with six strong innings from 6-9 left-hander Max Huffling who struck out 11 Indians and allowed one earned run. In the finale, sophomore Kade Wroot (North Platte) drove in four runs, on a two-run home run and a two-run double as MCC scored seven times in the sixth inning.

Lamar goes to 4-6 on the year. MCC is 6-6.

The Indians will next take on Garden City Wednesday at 3 p.m. in a nine-inning game. On Saturday Otero Junior College comes to town for an Empire League doubleheader with a pair of games starting at 1 p.m. Saturday and a nine-inning game Sunday (1 p.m.).

GAME 1 – Lamar CC 8, McCook CC 2: The Lopes scored a pair of runs in the first, three in the second, one in the third and two in the fourth off three MCC pitchers to back Lamar’s Max Heffling.

The Indians were held to four hits on the day, a double by Pedro Perez (sophomore Cidra, Puerto Rico Baseball Academy); and singles by Kade Wroot, Caleb Eiguren (freshman, Westminster, Colo.) and Ryan Nourse (sophomore, Centennial, Colo.).

MCC scored runs in the sixth inning on a pair of singles and a wild pitch and in the seventh on three walks and a passed ball.

Jayden Bastow (sophomore, Clearwater, Fla.) was charged with five runs in two innings; sophomores Connor McGonigal (Omaha Burke) and Anthony Kingsbury (Gatineau, Quebec) both pitched an inning and both game up a run.

Holden Hopkins (sophomore, Norman, Okla.) went the final three innings and allowed two hits, no runs, four walks and he struck out four.

GAME 2 – McCook 14, Lamar CC 4: The Indians put the game away with a seven-run sixth inning, in a game shortened by the 10-run rule. MCC scored in five of the six innings with two in the first, three in the third and added runs in both the fourth and fifth innings before putting the game away in the sixth.

Trevor Pacheco (sophomore, Pueblo, Colo.) stroked a first inning double and later came home to score, and Caleb Eiguren’s RBI single made it 2-0.

Kade Wroot socked a two-run home run in the third to give the Indians a 4-0 lead and later that inning Aiden Ferry (freshmen, Monroe, Wash.) lined a two-run solo homer to make it 5-0.

On the mound, Isaac Vargas (sophomore, Greeley, Colo.) pitched three scoreless innings to start the game before surrendering three runs in the fourth and one in the fifth. He allowed nine hits, and four earned runs in five innings of work. He struck out six. Mitchell Driver (freshman, Sydney, Australia) came on to pitch a hitless, scoreless sixth inning, striking out one.

MCC pushed across a run in the fourth on a single by Elijah Munoz (freshman, Big Spring, Texas) and a sacrifice fly from Pacheco. That gave MCC a 6-3 lead but MCC gave that run back in the top of the fifth with a Lamar solo home run. Wroot was hit by a pitch to lead off the MCC fifth and scored on a Ferry single to give the Indians a 7-4 lead.

Root delivered a two-run double to start the fireworks in the MCC sixth. The Indians took advantage of four Lamar walks but had doubles from Pedro Perez and Brandon Reynolds (freshman, Monument, Colo.).

MCC had 11 hits with two each from Wroot, Ferry and Munoz.

The McCook Community College women’s basketball team lost to Iowa Western Community College 62-53 in the final regular season game of the year Saturday at the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center.

The Lady Indians finish the season 21-9 and also found out they will be hosting Lamar Community College Friday at 6 p.m. in the first round of the Region IX tournament. MCC and Northeastern Junior College tied for the third best record in the Region IX south division and held a coin-flip to determine seeding which NJC won. There was also a coin flip to determine the No. 5 seed between Lamar and Trinidad State. The top two seeds (Western Nebraska and Otero) gained first-round byes.

“I’m excited for the opportunity for our girls to host a tournament game here, said MCC Coach Brandon Pritchett.

In Saturday’s tune-up for the Region Tournament, the Lady Indians faced what Pritchett called a tournament-caliber team in Iowa Western, but spotted the Reivers the first 14-points of the game.

“Other than those first few minutes we played well defensively especially in the second half,” Prichett said. “We just couldn’t get anything going offensively, got a lot of good looks and again we missed 10 layups in the first half. If we make half of them, it’s a different game going into halftime.”

The Lady Indians went the first 5:52 of the game without scoring. Down 14-0, the Lady Indians responded with a 13-3 run to trail after one quarter 16-13. The Reivers outscored MCC 19-9 in the second quarter to make it a 35-22 game at the half.

“We dug ourselves into such a deep hole against a talented team, that we couldn’t dig ourselves out of. They have a lot of good pieces, they play hard and they are physical,” Pritchett said.

MCC held Iowa Western to 12 points in the third quarter but were only able to manage 10 points offensively. The Lady Indians outscored the Reivers 21-15 in the final 15 minutes.

“We found a good group in the second half that competed and played their tails off,” Pritchett said. He was pleased his team was able to hold Iowa Wester to 27.1 percent shooting for the game and 23.8 percent from the 3-point line.

“That’s a really good Iowa Western team and to keep them to 27 percent from the field and 24 percent from 3, you look at those numbers and you have a really good chance to win games, but when you give up offensive rebounds like we did and struggle from the line, your chances aren’t as good,” Pritchett said.

MCC shot 32.4 percent for the game, made just five of 25 3-pointers. From the free-throw line MCC made just four of 11 shots (36.4 percent) and were outscored from the line 19-4 with Iowa Western making 19 of 22 shots (86.4). The Reivers also held the rebound edge 52-36, including 13 on the offensive end.

Sophomore Makenna Bodette (Colorado Springs) led MCC with 13 points and seven rebounds. Freshman Gail Whiting (Montgomery, Ala.) came off the bench with 11 points and six rebounds. Freshman Carla Torrubia Cano (Melilla Spain) led MCC with eight rebounds. Freshman Niamh Kelshaw (Manchester, England) scored eight points.

Iowa Western improves to 18-10 while the Lady Indians prepare for a Lamar team that returns to the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center for the Region IX tournament game Friday -- one week after losing to the Lady Indians 74-35.

“It’s an exciting time of year and we are thrilled to have an opportunity to play in the post season, thrilled to have the chance to host a tournament game, which was one of our goals,” Pritchett said. “We did that now we move on the next set of goals, which is winning a first-round game.”

The McCook Community College men’s basketball team won its fourth straight game Friday downing Lamar Community College 80-71 in the Peter and Dolores Graff Event Center. The Indians took charge of the game early, never trailed, sailed to an 18-point half-time but had to hold off a hard-charging Lopes team in the final 10 minutes.

“This game was the tale of two halves,” said MCC Coach Kyle Drennan.

The Indians shot 71 percent from the floor in the first half and held Lamar to 30.8 percent. MCC sank 10 of 15 shots from the 3-point line (66.7 percent). Freshman Boaz Quinan Quinlan (Beavertown, Ore.) sank five of six shots in the first half from distance.

Then Lamar came out after the intermission and outscored MCC 45-36 in the second half, and shot 63.3 percent in the half.

“I felt like we were took the mindset of  ‘it’s over already,’ but Lamar did not quit.’ Drennan said. “I’m proud of the win, I’m proud that we punched back when we needed to in the end but we’ve got to get better to play a full 40 minutes. We played probably 25 tonight, but those 25 were really good.”

Sophomore Raheim Sullivan (Toronto, Ontario) scored 22 points to lead the Indians. Quinlan added another 3-pointer in the second half to finish with 18 points on a six-for-eight night from the arc. Freshman Rahkiem Petterson (Midland, Texas) scored 15 points and led the Indians with five points.

“This team is crazy right now, LeTre (Darthard) had been killing it for us and he’s held to four points, yet we score 80 and still win,” Drennan said. “We’re getting contributions from everybody right now.”

Sophomore Tyrik Singh (San Juan, Trinidad and Tobago) scored nine points and Sophomore Justin Costello (Omaha /Elkhorn South High School) had eight points. Both had a pair of 3-pointers.

MCC finished the game shooting 60.5 percent from the floor, made 13 of 20 shots from the 3-point line (65 percent), and 15 of 18 shots from the free-throw line (78.9 percent).

The Running Lopes finish the regular season at 16-14 (5-7 in Region IX south play.)

MCC improves to 13-15 and 4-7 in Region IX south play with the final regular-season game at home Tuesday starting at 7 p.m. against North Platte, (7-17, 3-8).

MCC will honor four sophomores in ceremonies prior to the 7 p.m. game. Those sophomores include: Raheim Sullivan, Bryton Bissanithe (North Miami, Fla.), Tyrik Singhand Justin Costello (Omaha /Elkhorn South High School.)

Huskers Edged by Toreros, 12-11

San Diego, Calif. – The Nebraska baseball team (1-3) led San Diego, 7-0, after the top of the fourth, but the Toreros stormed back on its way to a 12-11 win over the Huskers at Fowler Park on Friday night.

The Huskers compiled 18 hits, but left 11 runners on base. Cam Chick paced NU’s offense with a 4-for-5 performance. Aaron Palensky and Leighton Banjoff each produced three-hit outings, as six Huskers produced multi-hit efforts.

Senior lefty Gareth Stroh, making his second start at Nebraska and 33rd career NCAA start, threw 5.0 innings and allowed four runs (three earned runs) on four hits. He recorded four strikeouts and no walks. Max Schreiber (1.1 innings), Tyler Martin (0.2) and Shay Schanaman (1.0) each made relief appearances for the Huskers.

In the opening frame, Palensky ripped a two-out double, but was left stranded after a strikeout ended the inning. It extended Palensky’s team-best hitting streak to seven games and reaching base streak to 25 games. In the bottom of the first, the Toreros went down in order with a lineout, groundout and strikeout.

NU scored one run in the top of the second to take the early lead. Banjoff hit a one-out single before advancing to second on a wild pitch. Gunner Hellstrom drove him in with an RBI single up the middle. Stroh retired all three San Diego hitters in the bottom of the second.

The Huskers added six runs in the third inning to build a 7-0 advantage. Each of NU’s first four batters reached base during the frame, as Chick and Spencer Schwellenbach hit back-to-back singles before Palensky brought them in with a two-RBI double. Luke Roskam singled to advance Palensky to third before the first out of the inning was recorded. Banjoff laced an RBI single before Mojo Hagge reached on a hit-by-pitch to load the bases. Hellstrom reached on a fielder’s choice and Roskam touched home on the play after a throwing error. Joe Acker earned an RBI with a walk in the subsequent at-bat before Chick’s sacrifice fly added another run. The Toreros went down 1-2-3 in the bottom of the third.

In the top of the fourth, Nebraska managed two baserunners, but couldn’t add to its lead. San Diego scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth to cut NU’s lead to 7-3. After back-to-back singles to open the frame, Adam Kerner blasted a three-run home run to left field with two outs before a strikeout ended the inning.

Chick singled through the right side with two outs in the top of the fifth, but was caught stealing to end a scoreless inning for the Big Red. USD scored one run in the bottom of the fifth to trim the deficit to 7-4. NU committed two errors during the frame, as the Toreros managed one base hit, before a double play ended the inning.

The Huskers responded with two runs in the top of the sixth to build a 9-4 lead. Schwellenbach blasted a leadoff double and then scored on Roskam’s one-out RBI single. After the second out was recorded, Banjoff reached on a hit-by-pitch. Hagge drove in one run with an RBI single, but was thrown out on the play after trying to reach second base. Schreiber retired the Toreros in order in the bottom of the sixth with two groundouts and a flyout.

Chick ripped a two-out double in the top of the seventh before a fielder’s choice ended a scoreless frame for the Huskers. San Diego scored five runs in the bottom of the seventh to tie the game at 9-9. The Toreros managed four hits during the frame and the Huskers committed two errors.

NU retook the lead at 10-9 with one run in the top of the eighth. Palensky drew a leadoff walk before stealing second. Banjoff drew a two-out walk and the runners advanced to second and third on a wild pitch.

The McCook Community College women’s basketball team wrapped up the Region IX schedule Friday claiming a 74-35 win over Lamar Community College.

MCC finishes 5-5 in the south division of Region IX – tied with Northeastern Junior College for third place. Both teams clinch first-round home games in the Region IX tournament. A coin flip will determine which team gets the No. 3 seed. There was also a tie for fifth place between Lamar and Trinidad State, (both 1-9), so a coin flip will determine which team comes to MCC Friday for a first-round Region IX game at 6 p.m.

Friday’s win on sophomore recognition night looked similar to a trend where MCC comes out and applies a tremendous amount of defensive pressure to start games. The Lady Indians held the Running Lopes to just six points in the first quarter maintaining a 19-6 lead and stretching it to 20 points before Lamar responded with a run to end the second quarter.

“We came out and guarded really well from the get-go, and just dominated defensively really for all but about the three minute stretch to end the second quarter when we let them go on a 9-0 run,” MCC Coach Brandon Pritchett said.

MCC was streaky from the 3-point line making six of 17 shots (35.3 percent) in the first half. Freshman Amiya Dartest (Jennings, La.) helped the cause making three of six shots and leading the Indians with 12-first half points.

The Lady Indians started the second half in similar fashion stepping up the defensive effort and winning the third quarter 16-6.

“The first and third quarter we were really effective defensively, forcing them into 29 turnovers,” Pritchett said.

“We shot the ball fairly well in the first half, but we need to be more consistent. We missed a lot of layups in the first half (10) but we rebounded the ball well and had balanced scoring,” Pritchett said.

“Gail (Whiting) was a huge spark for us in the second half especially defensively with three or four steals and her aggressive play on both ends of the court,” Pritchett said. “Really we had an all-around good effort from everyone.”

Whiting, the freshman from Montgomery, Ala., led all scorers with 16 points and eight rebounds. Sophomore Makenna Bodette (Colorado Springs) scored 12 points and picked up 10 rebounds. Dartest ended with the 12 points she scored in the first half. 

Freshman Carla Torrubia Cano (Melilla Spain) scored 11 points with five boards and Sophomore Paula Rosello Mateu, (Barcelona, Spain) had 10 points.

The coach also pleased with the rebounding effort with MCC picking up 16 offensive boards winning the rebound battle 52-46 and the team made 16 of 19 free-throws.

Lamar ended the game shooting 24.6 percent from the field and made just 1 of 15 shots from the 3-point line. MCC shot 29.7 percent from the floor in the first half and stepped it up to 35.9 percent in the second half.

The Lady Indians, now 21-8, wrap up the regular season Saturday (Feb. 22) at 4 p.m. in the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center against Iowa Western Community College.

In addition to Bodette and Mateu, other sophomores honored before the game included: Nicola Cross (Melbourne, Australia); Jessika Espinoza, (El Paso, Texas) Western New Mexico University; Sophomore Sydney Sandford (Missouri City, Texas); Kali Kelley (Windsor, Colo.); and Student Assistant, Parker Ehrke, from Orleans.

The McCook Community College baseball team opened Empire League  play (Region IX) Friday with a 3-2 loss to Lamar Community College in 10-innings.

Tied 2-2, Lamar led off the 10th inning with a hit batter and a sacrifice bunt, then two MCC errors led to the eventual game-winner. The Indians were guilty of four miscues on a day when pitching was at a premium.

MCC starter Braden Babcock (sophomore Oshawa, Ontario) went eight innings allowing five hits, walking two and striking out 10. He was charged with one earned run.

Mitchell Driver (freshman, Sydney, Australia) came on in the ninth and pitched an inning and one-third allowing no hits, one walk and one strikeout, but was tagged with the loss. Redshirt fresman Nicholas Wellman (Quincy, Ill.) threw the final two-third of an inning, striking out one.

MCC took a 1-0 lead in the third inning. Mark Zhang (sophomore, Nicholls, Australia) led off with a single, advanced to second base on a wild pitch, advanced to third on an infield groundout and scored on a wild pitch.

With two outs in the Lamar fifth the Runnn’ Lopes took advantage of a pair of McCook errors to tie the game at 1-1.

The Indians regained the lead in the seventh inning. Zayne Watson (freshman, The Woodlands, Texas) lined a one-out double to left field and scored on a two-out single by Anthony Nieves-Soto (freshman, Nayaguez, Puerto Rico/Carlos Beltran Academy).

Lamar tied the game at 2-2 in the eight with a pair of singles and a sacrifice fly.

MCC had a chance to win the game in the bottom of the ninth inning. Sophomore Kade Wroot (North Platte) was hit by a pitch, advanced to second and later third base on wild pitches. After a walk, three straight MCC batters struck out to end the rally.

Indian batters struck out 15 times on the afternoon while managing just four hits, doubles by Watson and Ricardo Hernandez (freshman, Ponce, Puerto Rico/Carlos Beltran Academy), and singles by Zhang and Soto.

Lamar goes to 3-5 on the year and MCC to 5-5.  The two teams will play a doubleheader Saturday starting at 1 p.m. This three-game series was originally scheduled to be played in Lamar but was moved to McCook because of weather and field conditions in Colorado.

Kearney, Neb. – Sophomores Brooke Carlson and Klaire Kirsch combined for 38 points to help No. 31/26 Nebraska-Kearney pull away from Northeastern State, 82-64, Thursday night at the Health & Sports Center.

UNK (24-3, 13-3) is now in sole possession of second place in the league standings as Newman stunned Emporia State (19-6, 12-4) tonight in Wichita, 68-67. The Lopers are at NU (10-16, 5-12) next Thursday.

To avoid a similar fate against NSU (5-19, 3-14), the Lopers saw Carlson (Elkhorn) and Kirsch (Rapid City, S.D.) both fall a point short of tying their career-highs. UNK also was plus nine on the glass in the second half and held the RiverHawks to 37% shooting (24 of 65).

"They are a team that always plays hard and their shooters shot the ball well today. That makes you a little bit concerned," UNK head coach Carrie Eighmey said. "We made some adjustments defensively in the second half and our players did a good job of taking away the easy stuff that I thought we gave up early." 

While NSU trailed for all but 16 seconds they hung around thanks to 12 offensive rebounds and big nights from guards Celina Hayes and Shae Sanchez. Hayes went for 27 points, eight rebounds and four assists with Sanchez tallying 17 points, seven boards and two assists. However NSU tallied only 11 fourth quarter points and surrendered 50 points in the paint.

"Offensively we found ways to manufacture points. We didn't necessarily shoot the ball great from the three-point line but we got to the foul line and in the second half we made those free throws," Eighemy said. "It was a game where had to get enough stops and then get paint touches because they started today with a fairly small lineup."

A 5-0 spurt gave UNK its first double digit lead of the night, 56-46, late in the third quarter. A corner three by freshman reserve guard Trinity Law (Brandon, S.D.) finished the mini-run and NSU didn't get closer than seven points the rest of the way. The Lopers went 8 of 8 at the line in the fourth and stretched the lead to 70-57 after a steal and layup by Kirsch. She was limited to just three first half minutes due to foul trouble but made up for lost time by scoring 13 of her 17 points after the break.

"Klaire gave us good energy in the second half. She made a couple plays defensively where she was able to get steals and turn them into easy buckets," Eighmey said. "She did a good job of attacking the rim and gave us a nice boost."

In double digits for a ninth straight time Carlson scored a team-best 21 points thanks to 8 of 11 field goal shooting. Also sinking five freebies she grabbed eight boards and had two assists. Next Kirsch finished 7 of 13 from the floor while also grabbing eight rebounds with Iowa sophomore wing Maegan Holt (10) the other Loper in double figures.

Hayes reached her big point total by making 11 of 21 shots (4 of 12 threes) with Sanchez 5 of 15 from the field. Starting post Zaria Collins (10) was the other NSU player to reach double digits.

UNK hosts Rogers State (4-22, 2-15) Saturday afternoon. The Hillcats have lost three in a row after a 100-59 setback at Fort Hays State tonight.

Kearney, Neb. – Senior guard Kendrick Thompson scored 25 points and Northeastern State sunk 11 three pointers to down Nebraska-Kearney, 75-64, Thursday night at the Health & Sports Center.

NSU (17-9, 10-7) avenges an 83-79 OT loss to the Lopers (15-10, 9-7) earlier this year and also picks up its sixth road win. This marks UNK's second home defeat in 13 outings. 

The RiverHawks came in averaging nine made threes per game and almost had that by halftime as they went 8 of 15. Thompson (4 of 8) and 6-7 redshirt freshman reserve Daniel Dotson (3 of 3) did the most damage as NSU built a 38-23 lead. UNK, meanwhile, went 1 of 15 from behind the arc and also saw the NSU bench score 21 first half points.

"You have to give it to Northeastern State. They came in focused and offensively they played extremely well in the first half. They hit eight threes, something we were trying to take away from them but they found ways to get open. Some of those were tough shots," UNK head coach Kevin Lofton said. data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAPABAP///wAAACH5BAEKAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAICRAEAOw%3D%3D​

A full-court press helped whittled down the deficit to nine early in the second half but the 'Hawks stretched it to 62-40 with 7:40 remaining. However UNK still made things interesting as a few shots fell and the pressure forced several 'Hawk turnovers. Bellevue redshirt lefty Cedric Johnson made 1 of 2 free throws to make it a seven-point hole, 66-59, by the 3:36 mark. Thompson responded with one of his eight buckets and then UNK missed again from long range. They finished 6 of 33 from the three point line (16 of 27 from inside the arc).

"Defensively we have to better than we were in both halves tonight. Offensively we have to be able to hit the open shot when we get it from the three-point line. But we also can't forget we're an inside-out team and we did not attack the paint anywhere as much as we should have in the first half," Lofton said. "Second half they went zone, squeezed the paint and made it hard for us to get anything inside. And then outside we didn't respond very well."

Beginning his career at Division I Longwood (Va.), Thompson made 8 of 18 shots (4 of 10 threes) and went 5 of 10 at the line to reach his game-high point total. Seven others scored include double digit efforts by reserves Brad Davis (12) and Aaron Givens (10). NSU, making 24 of 48 field goals, got an astounding 41 points off its bench.

UNK had three in double figures in Kansas senior Morgan Soucie (20), Utah junior Jake Walker (15) and Bellevue senior AJ Jackson (12). Soucie and Jackson combined to go 12 of 21 from the floor while also grabbing 13 rebounds and drawing 11 fouls. Finally Texas senior lefty Chase Winchester had nine points, four boards, and three assists.

The Lopers host nationally-ranked Rogers State on Saturday afternoon. The Hillcats (21-5, 13-4) downed Fort Hays State tonight, 74-68, to move into second place in the MIAA.

DETROIT (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo (YAH’-nihs an-teh-toh-KOON’-poh) had 33 points and 16 rebounds as the Milwaukee Bucks mauled the Detroit Pistons, 126-106. The Bucks led 70-41 at halftime and by as many as 34 in the second half of their 15th win in 17 games. Former Piston Khris Middleton added 28 points and Eric Bledsoe chipped in 18 as Milwaukee improved to a league-best 47-8.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — James Harden’s 29 points and 10 assists were among the Houston Rockets’ highlights in a 135-105 dismantling of the Golden Warriors. P.J. Tucker had 15 points on 5-for-5 shooting from 3-point range as Houston set a team-record with 25 buckets from beyond the arc. Russell Westbrook had 21 points and 10 assists before being ejected.

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Second-ranked Gonzaga earned its 19th straight victory and clinched at least a share of an eighth consecutive West Coast Conference regular-season title. Killian Tillie scored 22 points and grabbed nine rebounds as the Bulldogs whipped San Francisco, 71-54. Filip Petrusev delivered 16 points and Ryan Woolridge 12 for the Zags, who trailed by nine at halftime before outscoring the Dons, 49-23 the rest of the way.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Alex Ovechkin (oh-VEHCH’-kihn) ended a five-game point drought by netting his 699th career goal in the Washington Capitals’ 4-3 overtime loss to Montreal. The left wing fired up the crowd by scoring in seven minutes in and came close to becoming the eighth player in NHL history with 700 goals on a bang-bang play in the third period. Ben Chiarot (sheh-RAHT’) scored his second of the game 58 seconds into OT to send the Capitals to their fifth loss in six games.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis posted a 1-0 win over the Arizona Coyotes as Jordan Binnington needed to stop just 14 shots for his second consecutive shutout and eighth of his career. Antti Raanta stopped 45 of the Blues' season-high 46 shots, surrendering only Ryan O’Reilly’s goal with eight minutes remaining. The outcome puts the Blues back in sole possession of first place in the NHL’s Central Division, two points ahead of Dallas.

Lincoln – Dachon Burke Jr. had 18 of his 21 points in the first half, but Nebraska was unable to slow down Michigan State, falling 86-65 on Thursday night.

Nebraska was within 39-36 at the break, but shot just 28 percent in the second half, while the Spartans shot 61 percent after the break to pull away in the final 20 minutes.

Burke finished the night with 21 points on 7-of-15 shooting, including 4-of-8 from 3-point range. Joining Burke in double figures were Haanif Cheatam (14 points and five steals) and Yvan Ouedrago (10 points and seven rebounds). 

Nebraska made a couple early runs in the second half, and was within 48-46 before Aaron Henry keyed a 11-1 Spartan surge, scoring six of his 13 points to help MSU take a 59-47 lead. The Huskers chipped away and got within 61-54 after a Jervay Green 3-pointer with 8:54 left, but could get no closer as Michigan State ran off nine straight points, including 3-poitners from Gabe Brown and Kyle Ahrens to push the lead back to 16.

In all, the Spartans committed 22 turnovers, but went 13-of-27 from 3-point range and enjoyed a commanding 51-26 rebounding advantage for the contest. Nebraska was unable to find similar long-range success, converting only 8-of-32 3-pointers, including just 3-of-18 after halftime.

Cassius Winston led all scorers with 23 points and six assists, while Gabe Brown finished with 17 points, including 5-of-8 from 3-point range. Kyle Ahrens came off the bench to score 14 points on 4-of-6 shooting from 3-point range and also recorded seven rebounds, while Henry (13) and Xavier Tillman (10) also finished in double figures.

The first half featured runs by both teams as Michigan State took a 39-36 lead into the locker room. Nebraska trailed 7-2 early, but the Huskers ran off nine straight points, including a 3-point play from Thorir Thorbjarnarson to take an early 11-7 lead. Nebraska eventually stretched the margin to 17-12 after a pair of Burke free throws with 11:31 left in the half, but Michigan State would come back.

The Spartans hit three straight 3-pointers as part of an 11-0 run to build a 23-17 lead after a Rocket Watts basket. The Huskers trailed 30-23 after a Xavier Tillman basket, but

NU would battle back behind the play of Burke, who finished with 18 first-half points.

Burke hit a trio of 3-pointers in an 80-second span, the last of which tied the score at 36 with 46 seconds left in the half. Aaron Henry came back on MSU's next possession and hit a trey of his own to give the Spartans the lead heading into the locker room. 

The Huskers return to action on Monday, Feb. 24, as the Huskers travel to Champaign to take on the Illinois Fighting Illini. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. and will be televised on BTN and carried on the Learfield IMG College Husker Sports Network.

The McCook Community College women’s basketball team wrapped up an undefeated conference mark downing North Platte Wednesday in the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center, 66-44.

The wins give the Lady Indians a 6-0 record in the Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference for the second straight season as the team has also clinched a first-round home game in the Region IX tournament that will be played Feb. 28 at 6 p.m. against either Lamar Community College or Trinidad State.

On Wednesday in NCCAC action, MCC got off to a fast start, survived a second-quarter lull but picked up the defensive pressure in a decisive third quarter to give the Lady Indians their 21st win of the year. MCC zipped out to a 7-0 lead 2:21 into the game and pushed the lead to 13 points at the 4:26 mark of the first period.

“I thought we really came out and played hard those first six minutes and put the pressure on them and made shots early, and then went into a lull,” said MCC Coach Brandon Pritchett.

MCC led 17-9 after 10 minutes but the Knights out-scored MCC 15-14 in the second quarter and trailed just 31-24 at the half.

“We turned up the pressure in the second half, we changed up our press and that really helped change the game for us, we pushed the tempo and that helped us make a few more shots in the second half,” Prtichett said.

After shooting 33.3 percent from the field in the first half, MCC stepped it up with tempo points making 48.8 percent of its second-half shots to finish at 40.3 percent from the game, but it was the shooting from the 3-point line and the free-throw line that has the coach concerned.

MCC made seven of 31 3-pointers (22.6 percent) and made just five of 13 from the foul line (38.5 percent).

“Those number are just going to be a killer in the Region IX tournament,” Pritchett said. “We need to get that fixed now.”

Yet, defensively and rebounding have been improving

“The one thing we can hang our hat on these past several weeks is we really lock down defensively for the most part,” Pritchett said. He cited the fact that North Platte averages 13 offensive rebounds per game but the Lady Indians limited them to just seven.

“That’s what we wanted to focus on tonight. We played really good defense, even going back to the Western Nebraska game (Feb. 7) we’ve locked in defensively and if we can continue to do that and get our offense going I really think this team can do something special.”

MCC won the rebound battle 49-33 and held North Platte to 24.5 shooting for the game, and forced 23 turnovers.

Makenna Bodette (Colorado Springs) sophomore topped MCC offensively with 16 points on eight of 10 shooting from the field. Sophomore Transfer Paula Rosello Mateu, (Miles Community College/Barcelona, Spain) scored 13 points, including three of six from the 3-point line.

Freshman Gail Whiting (Montgomery, Ala.) came off the bench with 11 points and eight rebounds (seven offensive) and Carla Torrubia Cano (freshman, Melilla, Spain) had another double-double for the Lady Indians scoring 10 points and bringing down 10 rebounds.

Ashley Hassett paced North Platte with 23 points.

North Platte falls to 9-20 and 0-5 in the NCCAC. The Knights will close out the NCCAC season Saturday at Southeast Community College and will play in the Region IX Division II tournament.

MCC improves to 21-7 and wrap up the regular season this week with two final home games – the Final Region IX south game Friday against Lamar Community College (8-21 under former MCC Coach Kellen Fernetti)  Friday at 5 p.m. which will be Sophomore Night, and the final home game is Saturday against Iowa Western at 4 p.m.

MCC and Northeastern Junior College are tied for third in Region IX Division I, south (4-5) with one south region game left for each team: MCC Friday with Lamar (1-8) and NJC plays at Trinidad State (1-8) Friday. Western Nebraska (9-0) and Otero Junior College (8-1) have secured first-round byes and automatically advance to the second round where teams from the south division will play teams from the north division according to seeding.
