College basketball

Nevada edges Kansas on disputed block

By wire services
Published December 2, 2005

LAWRENCE, Kan. - Nick Fazekas scored 21 of his career-high 35 points in the second half and made a disputed block in the closing seconds, and No. 20 Nevada held off Kansas' second-half comeback to win 72-70 Thursday.

The Jayhawks got within 71-70 on Micah Downs' 3-pointer with 17.6 seconds left, and got the ball back after Mo Charlo hit the second of two free throws with 6.9 seconds left.

Jeff Hawkins, caught up in traffic near the baseline, passed to C.J. Giles in the lane. Fazekas knocked the ball away as Giles went up to shoot, and time ran out.

Kansas coach Bill Self stormed onto the court, demanding a foul be called.

The Wolfpack (4-0) made up for its second-half shooting struggles by finishing 21-for-24 from the line.

Kansas fell to 2-3 for the first time since the 1972-73 season.

NO. 15 ARIZONA: Freshman forward Fendi Onobun will sit out as a redshirt.

Big East

RICHMOND 60, SETON HALL 49: Jermaine Bucknor and Kevin Steenberge each had a season-high 16 points for the host Spiders (3-1), who held the Pirates (3-2) without a field goal for the first 10:55 of the second half. Seton Hall took its only lead when Brian Laing's jumper gave the Pirates a 17-16 lead with 6:57 left in the first half. Seton Hall missed five of its next seven field goals and had three turnovers.


AUBURN 91, McNEESE STATE 76: Ronnie LeMelle scored a game-high 17 for the host Tigers (3-1). The Cowboys are 2-2.


IONA 71, FORDHAM 70: Steve Burtt scored a game-high 33 for the visiting Gaels (4-0). The Rams are 1-5.

BALL STATE: Guard Peyton Stovall, the Mid-American Conference's top returning scorer, will have left knee surgery and miss the season. Coach Tim Buckley hopes the junior can return next season.

WASHINGTON STATE: What looked like a tantrum that ended Randy Green's career turned out to be a big misunderstanding. Green left the Cougars' arena with about five minutes left against Wyoming on Wednesday. Coach Dick Bennett thought Green left because he was upset at being removed, and said Green would not return. He forgave him when the senior guard said he thought Bennett ordered him to leave.


CAMPBELL 84, STETSON 70: The host Fighting Camels (1-3) snapped a 25-game losing streak. Their last victory was Dec. 11 against North Carolina A&T. Gabe McMillen scored 18 for the Hatters (0-5).

FIU 72, FLORIDA TECH 54: Ivan Almonte scored a game-high 23 and had 17 rebounds for the host Golden Panthers (3-2). Division II Florida Tech is 2-3.

FLAGLER 106, TRINITY COLLEGE 64: Bryan Borstelmann of Bradenton had 19 points and 12 rebounds for host Flagler.
