NCAA MEN'S BASKETBALL: No. 1 Indiana thumps Sam Houston State

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Christian Watford scored 23 points to help No. 1 Indiana defeat Sam Houston State 99-45 on Thursday night in the Progressive Legends Classic.

Will Sheehey scored 18 points, Victor Oladipo had 14 and Jordan Hulls 10 for the Hoosiers (3-0), who shot 57 percent from the field and made 9 of 21 3-pointers.

Paul Baxter scored nine points and Marquel McKinney had eight for Sam Houston State (1-2). The Bearkats pushed Arkansas before losing their opener 73-68 on the road.

Indiana beat the Bearkats in every possible way. About the only thing Indiana coach Tom Crean could complain about was that the Hoosiers made just 30 of 44 free throws.

NO. 2 LOUISVILLE 80, SAMFORD 54

Russ Smith scored a game-high 18 points, Chane Behanan grabbed a career-high 18 rebounds and added 12 points and the Cardinals routed the Bulldogs.

Behanan matched his career best in the first half with 13, outrebounding the Bulldogs (12) by himself.

Gorgui Dieng had 10 points and 13 rebounds while Wayne Blackshear added 13 points with five rebounds as the Cardinals (2-0) won the opener of the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament that continues next week in the Bahamas.

Louisville never trailed in its first meeting against Samford (1-2),

NO. 6 N.C. STATE 72, PENN STATE 55

T.J. Warren had 22 points and eight rebounds to lead the Wolfpack over the Nittany Lions in the opening round of the Puerto Rico Tipoff.

C.J. Leslie had 14 points and Rodney Purvis added 12 points for the Wolfpack (2-0). Purvis was 3 for 3 on 3-pointers and N.C. State shot 8 for 16 from beyond the arc.

Tim Frazier led the Nittany Lions (1-1) with 23 points. D.J. Newbill had 13 points and Jermaine Marshall added 11 points for Penn State, which shot 3 for 19 on 3-pointers.

NO. 7 KANSAS 69, CHATTANOOGA 55

Freshman guard Ben McLemore had 25 points and eight rebounds, Elijah Johnson added 18 points and the Jayhawks used a big second-half charge to beat the Mocs.

The Jayhawks (2-1), coming off a loss Tuesday night to Michigan State, got off to a sluggish start against the Mocs, and still trailed 42-30 in the opening minutes of the second half.

Jeff Withey began their comeback with a basket inside, Johnson ripped a 3-pointer and McLemore slammed down the first of back-to-back highlight-reel dunks to trigger a 27-4 run over the next 12-plus minutes. Kansas merely had to go through the motions down the stretch to wrap up the win.

Farad Cobb was 6 of 7 from beyond the arc in the first half before finishing with 21 points for Chattanooga (1-1), the perennial Southern Conference contender.

NO. 12 ARIZONA 72, TEXAS-EL PASO 51

Mark Lyons scored 17 points, Solomon Hill added 10 and the Wildcats overcame some sloppy ball-handling to beat the Miners.

After taking care of the ball in its opener, Arizona (2-0) had some careless moments against UTEP, turning it over 19 times. The Wildcats also fouled a little too much, particularly in the second half, which let the Miners keep it close for a while.

Arizona made up for it by shooting 9 of 18 from 3-point range and dominating the glass, outrebounding the Miners 35-15.

Despite trailing by as many as 21 points, UTEP (1-1) remained aggressive, getting to the free-throw line 16 times in the second half.

NO. 13 UCLA 100, JAMES MADISON 70

Norman Powell scored a career-high 27 points, Jordan Adams added 25 and the Bruins routed the Dukes in regional play of the Legends Classic.

Adams had 21 points in the season opener against Indiana State and 26 points against UC Irvine on Tuesday, making him the first freshman in school history to score 20-plus points in his first three games. He made all seven of his free throws, extending his streak to 23 in a row.

The Bruins (3-0) next play Georgetown on Monday in Brooklyn, N.Y., as part of the Legends Classic. They will then face either No. 1 Indiana or Georgia on Tuesday.

Rayshawn Goins led James Madison with 24 points, one off his career best.

NO. 16 BAYLOR 84, BOSTON COLLEGE 74

Pierre Jackson had a season-high 31 points, Isaiah Austin had 16 and the Bears rallied in the second half to beat the Eagles in the Charleston Classic.

The Bears (3-0) will face Colorado, the team they beat in last season's NCAA run to the final eight, on Friday for a spot in Sunday night's championship final. Jackson led the way for Baylor with six of his team's 12 3-pointers.

Still, the Bears trailed 52-47 with about 15 minutes to go when Jackson and Austin fueled a 10-0 run to gain control. Austin had two inside baskets, and Jackson two 3-pointers to put Baylor ahead for good.

Boston College (1-1) got 25 points from sophomore Ryan Anderson. The Eagles will play Dayton on Friday.

  • SOFTBALL: OU run-rules Texas to control Big 12 race

    “The beauty of this team and this program is that you can hit us hard one time and we usually respond, so I expect that we’ll be completely ready to play tomorrow. You’re going to see a completely different look from this team that’s ready to fight.”

    Those were the words of Oklahoma head coach Patty Gasso following Friday night’s 9-0 loss in six innings to Texas. Based on Saturday’s result, the hall of fame coach couldn’t have been more right.

    A four-run first inning set the tone early and No. 16/12 Oklahoma (34-10, 11-2) captured the series finale over Texas (27-18, 7-3) in dominant fashion, winning 8-0 in five innings.
