    No. 18 Purdue beats No. 2 Arizona 89-64 for 7th in Atlantis

    Purdue kept knocking down shots -- 3-pointer after 3-pointer, with midrange jumpers thrown in -- on the way to a lopsided win that allowed the 18th-ranked Boilermakers to close the Battle 4 Atlantis on a positive note.

    The unexpected part? The overmatched opponent was a second-ranked Arizona team on its way to a third loss in as many days.

    Dakota Mathias scored 24 points to help the Boilermakers roll past the Wildcats 89-64 in Friday night's seventh-place game, sending a Final Four favorite home with a winless showing in the Bahamas.

    Alabama, down to 3 players in 4th, loses 'bizarre' game vs. Minnesota

    Minnesota coach Richard Pitino never saw anything like it.

    Nor had Alabama coach Avery Johnson.

    "That was one of the most bizarre things I've ever been a part of," Jordan Murphy said after he scored 19 points and and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead No. 14 Minnesota to an 89-84 victory over No. 25 Alabama, which finished the game with just three players, in the championship game of the Barclays Center Classic on Saturday.

    Purdue uses size advantage to upend No. 17 Louisville 66-57

    Purdue coach Matt Painter gambled Tuesday night.

    Center Isaac Haas made sure it paid off.

    The 7-foot-2 senior played most of the final 15 minutes with three fouls, banging around and drawing fouls on Louisville's leaner defenders. Eventually, Haas' inside presence loosened up the defense for his teammates who used a late run to finally get past the 17th-ranked Cardinals 66-57 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

    No. 3 Michigan State beats No. 5 Notre Dame 81-63

    Tom Izzo is usually hard to please, consistently finding fault with his teams following victories.

    After No. 3 Michigan State beat No. 5 Notre Dame 81-63 on Thursday night, he looked and sounded uncharacteristically happy after a game.

    Mason, Murphy help No. 12 Minnesota rout Rutgers 89-67

    Coaches aren't usually concerned about a letdown in the first conference game of the season. But No. 12 Minnesota was coming off a hard-fought loss to a ranked opponent, and with lightly regarded Rutgers on the schedule Sunday, Richard Pitino had cause for concern.

    Nate Mason, Jordan Murphy and the rest of his players put those fears to rest quickly.

    Mason scored a season-high 26 points, Murphy had his ninth straight double-double to start the season and the Golden Gophers beat Rutgers 89-67 in the Big Ten opener for both teams.

    No. 3 Michigan St beats Nebraska 86-57 for 6th straight rout

    Jaren Jackson gave himself a chance to show some of his potential because he figured out how to stay out of foul trouble.

    The freshman had 15 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks to help No. 3 Michigan State beat Nebraska 86-57 on Sunday.

    Bridges scores 21 as No. 3 Michigan State beats Rutgers

    After blowing out its last six opponents, including highly regarded North Carolina and Notre Dame, No. 3 Michigan State was due for one of those off nights.

    It almost cost them against Rutgers.

    Miles Bridges scored 21 points and the Spartans (8-1, 2-0 Big Ten) overcame their worst offensive performance of the season with a 62-52 victory over the surprising Scarlet Knights (6-3, 0-2) on Tuesday night.

    Watson lifts Nebraska over No. 14 Minnesota 78-68

    Glynn Watson Jr. was coming off a miserable game, with six points on 2-of-11 shooting in a loss to No. 3 Michigan State. He got back on track Tuesday night.

    Watson scored 20 of his 29 points in the second half and Nebraska opened up a 16-point lead early in the second half en route to a 78-68 win over No. 14 Minnesota.

    No. 21 Purdue dominates Valparaiso 80-50

    The Purdue Boilermakers don't spend too much time worrying about the college basketball landscape. That doesn't mean they're oblivious to games played outside of Mackey Arena.

    Ball State's upset of No. 9 Notre Dame earlier this week earned Purdue's undivided attention. So, when an undefeated Valparaiso arrived on Thursday night, the 21st-ranked Boilermakers (9-2) avoided becoming the latest victim to suffer an upset loss by smothering the Crusaders with aggressive defense and fast-paced offense on the way to an 80-50 win.
