No. 21 Houston eyes revenge in rematch with Memphis

March 08, 2020 at 02:00AM

Houston had the opportunity to stay tied with Tulsa atop the American Athletic Conference but the No. 21 Cougars came up short 77-71 at UConn on Thursday night.

The inability to win a meaningful game on the road despite three 3-pointers made in the last minute -- two by Quentin Grimes -- caused coach Kelvin Sampson to be pensive about the stature of his program.

"I do think we have a good program, but this is a long way from being a high-level team," Sampson said.

The Cougars' previous four losses in the AAC were by a total of six points. They lost two of their previous four conference games by a point to SMU and Memphis while beating conference leaders Tulsa and Cincinnati.

Houston (22-8, 12-5 AAC) hosts the rematch with Memphis (21-9, 10-7) in the regular-season finale for both teams Sunday.

Grimes, who finished with 24 points against UConn, did not play when the Cougars lost 60-59 at Memphis on Feb. 22. He missed the game with a hip pointer.

Caleb Mills' jumper with four seconds left was off the mark in that game. Houston missed its final four shots.

In the loss Thursday at UConn, Houston also had a breakdown late when the Huskies went on a 9-0 run to pull away with less than five minutes left.

"We kind let ourselves get sped up whenever the crowd got into it," Mills said. "We've got to mature in that aspect of the game."

Memphis is coming off a 68-60 win over Wichita State in its season home finale on Thursday.

Tyler Harris had a season-high 19 points -- including five 3-pointers -- and Precious Achiuwa posted his 17th double-double of the season (14 points and 16 rebounds).

The Tigers, who have won four of their past five games, committed only seven turnovers against the Shockers.

Memphis has an opportunity to finish in the top four of the AAC, which would earn the Tigers a first-round bye of the conference tournament next week.

"The guys knew this was a big game we needed," coach Penny Hardaway said after the win over Wichita State. "They were locked in."

Memphis took care of the ball after committing 24 turnovers in last weekend's win at Tulane. The Tigers had only one turnover in the second half against Wichita State.

"We talked about taking care of the ball and getting back on defense," said Achiuwa, a finalist for the Julius Erving Small Forward Award.

In the win over Houston last month, Achiuwa scored 10 points, including the go-ahead free throw with 28.2 seconds left.

No. 9 Terps seeks rebound vs. No. 25 Michigan

March 08, 2020 at 02:00AM

Maryland enters its final regular-season game feeling a bit shaken. Still, the Terrapins can claim at least a share of the Big Ten title with a victory over No. 25 Michigan on Sunday.

Heading into their final five games, the ninth-ranked Terrapins (23-7 overall, 13-6 Big Ten) were in excellent position to claim the regular-season title outright. But they've stumbled toward the finish line by losing to Ohio State, Michigan State and Rutgers. The lone victory during that span against Minnesota was achieved by a single point.

Rutgers defeated the Terrapins 78-67 while shooting 49.2 percent from the field.

"We're just not playing like our normal selves," sophomore forward Jalen Smith told The Washington Post. "We're letting a lot of things slip. A lot of our principles that we're supposed to abide by, we're not really following. We've just got to figure it out."

Coach Mark Turgeon said his team needs to get tougher mentally.

"It's really frustrating," he said. "I think it's just the weight of everything. There's been great weight on us all year. ... But we can't feel sorry for ourselves. We've got to go get it."

Maryland was brimming with confidence during a nine-game winning streak that elevated it to the top spot in the Big Ten. The Terrapins looked like a totally different team at Rutgers, trailing by 21 points with seven minutes remaining.

Turgeon is optimistic he can get his team playing at a high level once again.

"I love this team," Turgeon said. "We've got to get back to guarding. Got to look in the mirror and say, 'I'm a hell of a player,' and quit hanging our heads and stay connected. We're going to get fresh between now and Sunday."

The Terrapins are led offensively by the one-two punch of senior guard Anthony Cowan Jr. and Smith. Cowan is averaging 16.2 points and 4.6 assists, while Smith is averaging a double-double with 15.4 points and 10.5 rebounds.

Michigan (19-11, 10-9) got a chance to face last-place Nebraska on Thursday after two consecutive defeats. The Wolverines took advantage of the opportunity, cruising to an 82-58 home victory.

Forward Isaiah Livers had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and guard Zavier Simpson also recorded a double-double with 11 points and 10 assists.

Simpson and his fellow senior, center Jon Teske, were playing their last home game. Teske finished with 12 points and five rebounds.

"It feels like yesterday I was standing here my freshman year off a big game," Simpson said to the Detroit News. "Now this is my last game standing here at Crisler. I just want to embrace every single moment of it and embrace the rest of the season because it goes by quick."

While the seniors got a proper sendoff, the Wolverines are hoping to have a long run in the upcoming tournaments.

"We have two high-class, high-character guys," Michigan coach Juwan Howard said. "I'm not surprised by how their college experience has been. It's been a fun ride, but they know that it's not over. We still have a lot more season to play."

No. 16 Spartans face tough finale vs. No. 19 Buckeyes

March 08, 2020 at 02:00AM

Michigan State has survived tough times on and off the court this season but has persevered to play for a share of the Big Ten title on Sunday.

The No. 16 Spartans (21-9, 13-6 Big Ten) host No. 19 Ohio State (21-9, 11-8) at Breslin Center in East Lansing, Mich., to close the season.

Ohio State defeated No. 23 Illinois 71-63 on Thursday for its fourth straight win and ninth in 11 games.

Wisconsin is 14-6 in conference play, closing with eight straight wins, and has locked up at least a co-championship. The Spartans and Badgers split their two games on the season.

"For what we have been through, it's just hard to explain what it means to have the chance to play for a Big Ten championship after the way the last five months have gone," Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said following the Spartans' rally from a 19-point deficit to win 79-71 at No. 20 Penn State on Tuesday.

Michigan State was tabbed the preseason No. 1 nationally, but at one point, the Spartans fell out of the Top 25 in part because Joshua Langford, considered the second-best player on the team behind senior Cassius Winston, has been unavailable all season because of a foot injury.

Then the program was rocked in November when Winston's younger brother, Zachary, committed suicide.

Izzo told CBS Sports this week the tragedy has been on everyone's minds.

"Some days (Winston) is just not with it," he said. "His mother, it's been hard on her. It's been like nothing I've ever gone through. If we can continue to win here, it will be the best accomplishment of my career, no matter where we go."

The Buckeyes have been challenged by adversity, although not to that level. Freshman D.J. Carton was starting to show why he was a four-star recruit before he took a leave of absence Jan. 30 to address mental health issues. He has not rejoined the team.

Guard Musa Jallow has missed the entire season after undergoing two ankle surgeries, and starting forward Kyle Young has been out the past three games due to an ankle sprain.

Yet, the Buckeyes have persevered. Against Michigan last Sunday, they went a on 23-9 run for a 77-63 victory. They outscored Illinois 23-6 in the final 9:48.

"We have been a very tough-minded group these last five weeks," Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann said. "We'll see if that continues. There's no permanency to that. You have to bring that each day to practice. That's a muscle you grow."

Freshman E.J. Liddell, a two-time Illinois Mr. Basketball, had a breakout game, tying his career high with 17 points and setting it with 11 rebounds vs. the Illini in Young's absence.

"I felt like the game has slowed down a lot," he said.

Said Holtmann, "His offense and defense were critical. He was phenomenal. Now we've got to see if he can keep doing that."
