Buckeyes Rout Cornhuskers
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Kaleb Wesson had 16 points and a career-high 18 rebounds, and Ohio State got out to a quick double-digit lead on its way to a 75-54 victory over Nebraska on Thursday night.
Ohio State (19-9, 9-8 Big Ten), playing without injured starting forward Kyle Young, won for the fourth time in five games. Nebraska (7-21, 2-15) lost its 13th straight.
The Buckeyes led 26-12 after making nine of their first 11 shots, including 5 of 6 on 3-pointers.
Duane Washington Jr. hit three straight 3s to open the game and finished with 14 points. He started for the first time since Jan. 11, taking the place of Young — who sat out with a sprained ankle.
C.J. Walker had 15 points and five rebounds.
No. 3 GONZAGA 94 SAN DIEGO 59
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Filip Petrusev had 21 points and nine rebounds as No. 3 Gonzaga beat San Diego to clinch its eighth straight West Coast Conference regular-season title.
Corey Kispert scored 16 points and Ryan Woolridge had 15 for Gonzaga (28-2, 14-1 WCC), which rebounded from its loss at BYU on Saturday.
The win came on a night when former Gonzaga star Adam Morrison was honored.
No. 19 MICHIGAN 74
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — D’Mitrik Trice scored 28 points and Wisconsin snapped Michigan’s winning streak at five.
The Badgers (18-10, 11-6 Big Ten) extended their own winning streak to five, never trailing in the game and repelling every Michigan push in the second half. The Wolverines cut a 14-point deficit to three, but after a Wisconsin timeout with 2:50 remaining, Trice sank a 3-pointer to double the lead.
Zavier Simpson scored a career-high 32 points for the Wolverines (18-10, 9-8) who were without guard Eli Brooks because of a broken nose.
No. 21 COLORADO 62
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Matt Bradley matched his career highs of 26 points and five 3-pointers, and California pulled away in the second half to beat Colorado.
