UNC's Coby White drives around Texas Kerwin Roach II during the first half of the Tar Heels's loss to the Longhorns

Texas basketball was a nine-point underdog against the UNC Tar Heels in a game that looked like it might get lopsided.

Kris Wilkes had 15 points to lead UCLA (4-1).

North Carolina now leads the all-time series 9-3 in a game between teams that have combined for 18 national championships. The Spartans have won early-season tournament titles in back-to-back years. But with such a young UCLA frontcourt with limited defensive skills, Maye could have one of those 30-point and 15-rebound efforts that he had numerous times previous year.

Winston was named tournament MVP, and Langford and Ward also were on the all-tournament team.

Tennessee's Admiral Schofield had 21 points and six rebounds while Grant Williams had 18 points, eight rebounds and six assists before fouling out.

Sterling Taplin the Golden Hurricane (4-1) with 22 points, and Martins Igbanu added 14. Points off turnovers, 31 to 19, that's something we can't have.

The second half charge was led by freshman Nassir Little who took over the game at one point in the final half.

Little got the ball at the top of the key with about 12 minutes left in a tight game and saw a lane to the rim. "Leaky made some big shots".

But the Cavs' usual tough defense was good enough to keep the Badgers and preseason Associated Press All-American Ethan Happ at arm's distance. The Badgers got as close as five four separate times in the second half, but could never overtake the Cavaliers. He hit his first three shots, including two 3-pointers. Nevada shot 62 percent from the field, including 11 of 22 from 3-point range.

3 magnitude quake hits Iran-Iraq border
Sarpol-e Zahab, some 325 miles southwest of the Iranian capital of Tehran, suffered half of the 2017 temblor's casualties. The quake had a depth of 10 kilometres (6.2 miles), according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).

There were eight lead changes and four ties as Southern Illinois earned a split in their two Las Vegas games and Tulsa went 0-2.

Isaiah Livers added 12 points for the Wolverines, all in the first half. The margin of defeat was 20 points but the Bruins were down by almost 30 in the first half, getting destroyed on the three-point line. His fellow freshman White had 19 points on 6-of-11 shooting including draining 4 three-pointers. Roach II posted 32 points in the 92-89 win over UNC on Thanksgiving Day. Kentucky concluded a span of three games in six days by notching its 48th consecutive victory over a nonconference opponent at home.

The way Texas surpassed UNC in the first round was impressive and nerve racking for its fans. Dylan Osetkowski and Matt Coleman III each had 13 points for the Longhorns (5-1).

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.

The Longhorns built off the momentum from the 3-pointer.

The Seminoles play Friday against No. 19 LSU (5-0) in the semifinals. That turned a lot of heads and proved that fourth-year Texas coach Shaka Smart actually has a decent team on his hands this season.

The Boilermakers (5-1) bounced back nicely from their first loss of the season Sunday night against No. 13 Virginia Tech. He also chipped in five assists to help his squad overcome an early 17-4 hole. Malik Petteway led Robert Morris with 10 points.

Well, Woods - who's a more steadying presence than people seem to give him credit for - could have helped soften the second team's drop-off in the first half.
