LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Four nights after Tom Izzo called out Cassius Winston for his poor play in Michigan State's previous game, the Spartans' star point guard responded better than his coach would have expected.

Winston scored a career-high 29 points to go over 1,000 for his career, had six assists and played tough defense on Glynn Watson Jr. while leading No. 6 Michigan State past Nebraska 70-64 on Thursday night.

"I told him before the game, `You're going to get measured on how you bounce back,' " Izzo said.


No. 5 Gonzaga rolls to 8th straight win

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Known for its offense, Gonzaga has shown that it can win by playing strong defense lately.

Zach Norvell Jr. scored 17 points and the No. 5 Bulldogs beat Loyola Marymount 73-55 on Thursday night, the eighth consecutive win for the Bulldogs since a pair of losses knocked them out of the top spot in The AP Top 25.


Injured TCU G Fisher leaving program

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) TCU junior point guard Jaylen Fisher will miss the rest of this season because of ongoing issues with his surgically repaired right knee and he will not return to the program next season.

"Obviously we haven't had him for a while," coach Jamie Dixon said Thursday. "He's been in and out for really three years, so it's something we've always known was a possibility given the history and the number of surgeries."


UCLA grants signee Sherfield release

LOS ANGELES (AP) Grant Sherfield, a guard who signed with UCLA last fall, has requested and received a release from his letter of intent.

The move comes two weeks after Steve Alford was fired as coach of the Bruins, who are being overseen on an interim basis by Murry Bartow while a permanent replacement is sought. Sherfield was part of a three-player recruiting class announced during the early signing period in November.


Barnes wanting Vols to avoid complacency

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee coach Rick Barnes wants to make sure his third-ranked Volunteers avoid complacency after winning their first four Southeastern Conference games by a combined margin of 100 points.

"This game is a game of habits," Barnes said Thursday. "If you start letting down, it will snowball on you quicker than you might imagine."


Washington beats Stanford as run hits 6

SEATTLE (AP) While it's still very early in conference play, Washington is learning it won't need to lean on just one or two players to help carry the Huskies through the Pac-12 season.

The Huskies are getting contributions throughout their rotation, and why Washington is 4-0 in conference play for the first time since the 2012-13 season.


White helps Oregon hold off Arizona

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Oregon could feel the tide shifting. Arizona had found an offensive rhythm, the fans inside McKale Center rising and roaring with each made shot.

Unlike a week earlier, when they blew a seemingly-insurmountable lead against UCLA, the Ducks turned back the charge and earned a win in one of college basketball's toughest environments.


UCLA, USC set to meet amid rocky seasons

LOS ANGELES (AP) A fired coach. A transfer. Suspensions. Injuries. UCLA and Southern California have experienced it all barely halfway through the season.

Things began promisingly enough for the Bruins. They were an AP Top 25 team and were predicted to finish second in the Pac-12 before early consecutive losses to ranked Michigan State and North Carolina knocked them out. Then came stunning defeats at home to mid-majors Belmont and Liberty. Those precipitated the biggest shocker of all: coach Steve Alford's firing on New Year's Eve.
