EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State shut down Ohio State in the second half despite an injury to Nick Ward.

Now the Spartans may be without their standout big man for a while.

Ward left in the second half with a broken left hand, but No. 11 Michigan State still rolled to a 62-44 victory over Ohio State on Sunday. The Spartans held the Buckeyes to only 13 points in the second half. Coach Tom Izzo initially said Ward might have dislocated a finger, but the school announced that the 6-foot-9 junior has a hairline fracture.


St. John's rallies to stun No. 13 'Nova

NEW YORK (AP) A 70-foot shot just before halftime gave St. John's momentum, and LJ Figueroa and the Red Storm used a strong defensive effort in the second half to surprise No. 13 Villanova.

Figueroa scored 22 points and St. John's rallied to beat the Wildcats 71-65 on Sunday night. It was the first win for the Red Storm at Madison Square Garden against Villanova in 17 years, and they accomplished the feat in front of an energetic sellout crowd of nearly 20,000 fans.


No. 9 Houston rips Tulane, now 25-1

Young scores 55, Quinnipiac wins in 3OT

LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. (AP) Cameron Young had a record-setting game in scoring 55 points to lead Quinnipiac to a 107-100 triple-overtime win against Siena on Sunday.

Young set the NCAA single-game high mark this season, a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference record and a program high for the Bobcats (14-11, 9-5) at the Division I level. He was 15-of-24 shooting from the field, including 9 of 13 from 3-point range, 16 of 20 from the foul line and collected 10 rebounds. His point total is the third highest by a D-I player in the last 20 years.


Colorado sends 'Zona to 7th loss in row

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) The Colorado Buffaloes never trailed Arizona in sending the Wildcats to their first seven-game skid in 36 years with a business-like 67-60 win Sunday night behind Lucas Siewert's hustle and McKinley Wright IV's clutch second-half adjustments.

In a reflection of how far Arizona (14-12, 5-8 Pac-12) has fallen through scandal and exodus over the last year, the Buffaloes (16-9, 7-6) didn't have to weave their way through waves of students on their way to their locker room as they had in coach Tad Boyle's five previous wins over the Wildcats at the UC Events Center.

No. 5 UK ends No. 1 Vols' streak at 19

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) No. 5 Kentucky got the strong start it sought against No. 1 Tennessee and for a moment was blowing out the Volunteers.

Most important was that the Wildcats finished off the Vols on a national stage, just what they needed days after letting one slip away.


Duke tops NC State, Barrett has 23-11-10
