Jaylen Hands added 14 points and nine assists, while Cody Riley had 11 points and nine rebounds for the Bruins, who lost both Las Vegas games.

Ty Jerome added 11 points for the Cavaliers (6-0), who led 33-18 after a strong first half, and then sputtered offensively as the Badgers kept pushing back.

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. He finished with seven points and four rebounds. A year ago when we lost a game to Duke like this, it was tears of sadness.

Freshman guard Coby White had a phenomenal game, leading all scorer with 33 points on 7/10 three-point shooting. Nevada shot 62 percent from the field, including 11 of 22 from 3-point range.

MSU continued to shoot well in the second half and finished at 51.6 percent, making 13 of 24 from 3-point range.

Luwane Pipkins led the Minutemen (4-2) with 30 points and seven rebounds, while Keon Clergeot added 12 as five MA players reached double digits. Joshua Langford scored 14 and Matt McQuaid 11.

Isaiah Livers added 12 points for the Wolverines, all in the first half. With just under 10 minutes remaining, Michigan State had extended its lead to 60-54.

The unbeaten Wolverines have won each of their games by at least 19 points. Osetkowski, Ramey and senior guard Kerwin Roach II combined for 29 of Texas' first-half points as the Longhorns shot 47 percent as a team and hit 7 of 17 3-pointers.

Kevin Easley led the Mocs with 21 points.

Roach scored a team-high 32 points in the win.

The Longhorns picked up a signature win over No. 7 North Carolina on Thursday night. Kentucky concluded a span of three games in six days by notching its 48th consecutive victory over a nonconference opponent at home.

Texas looked to pull away in the second half, but North Carolina would not let it happen.

Donte Fitzpatrick-Dorsey led the Tigers (2-4) with 18 points, followed by Emmanuel Egbuta with 13 and Kamar McKnight with 10. Head Texas basketball coach Shaka Smart put together a great start to his fourth season on the Forty Acres and to the Las Vegas Invitational itself.

After the 3-pointer, and after his players had run back into the locker room, Williams stood at the bench for about 10 seconds before walking back. The Longhorns missed 13 straight field goals at one point over a span of almost eight minutes.

MSU's big men held 7-foot-1 freshman Moses Brown scoreless with six rebounds but two fouls and two turnovers in 10 minutes. Langford hit a 3 with 15:26 to play to put the Spartans ahead 50-49 for their first lead of the night.
