LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Dedric Lawson was turning his attention from a harder-than-expected win over New Mexico State to studying for finals when he looked at his cellphone and saw Devonte Graham's name pop up.

His old teammate, and now a member of the Charlotte Hornets, was calling with a pep talk.

"He saw we were struggling against New Mexico State," Lawson recalled, "and he said, `Don't even worry about that. You just win on Saturday for me.'"
