Milik Yarbrough had 21 points as Illinois State defeated Drake 67-60 on Sunday.

Yarbrough also had seven turnovers but only four assists.Phil Fayne had 14 points and nine rebounds for Illinois State (15-14, 8-8 Missouri Valley Conference), which snapped its five-game losing streak. William Tinsley added 11 points. Keyshawn Evans had 10 points for the hosts.

Nick McGlynn had 18 points and nine rebounds for the Bulldogs (21-8, 10-6), whose four-game win streak ended with the loss. Tremell Murphy added 13 points. Brady Ellingson had 11 points.

The Redbirds improve to 2-0 against the Bulldogs for the season. Illinois State defeated Drake 69-55 on Jan. 30. Illinois State plays Missouri State at home on Wednesday. Drake plays Indiana State at home on Wednesday.A year after Sister Jean put the Loyola Ramblers in the national spotlight, the top seed in the 43rd Missouri Valley Conference Tournament returns to St. Louis with aspirations of earning a second consecutive bid into the NCAA Tournament.

Nine other teams will also be vying for the automatic berth when the MVC Tournament opens Thursday night with two play-in games. The championship game is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. Sunday inside the Enterprise Center.“We are not thinking about repeating. I do know where we are chasing. I think it’s going to be the most balanced, hard fought Arch Madness in many years with how balanced these teams are,” said Loyola coach Porter Moser, whose team defeated Illinois State, 65-49, in last year’s tournament championship game.

The top seven teams in the MVC were separated by three games in the standings. With an at-large berth into the NCAA Tournament unlikely for the league, the only way in will be a tournament championship.

“Nobody is going into this tournament with a target on their backs. They are all thinking about winning it,” Moser said. “Every single game in the regular season was hard fought. Anybody can beat anybody.”

Last year, the Ramblers became the 18th MVC team to make it to the Final Four, advancing into the Elite Eight for the first time since 1963 along the way. They ended their season with a 32-6 record, setting the program mark for wins in a single season.

Loyola (19-12, 12-6) will open as the top seed despite finishing in a first-place tie with Drake (23-8, 12-6). The Ramblers took the No. 1 spot on a tiebreaker, sweeping the two regular-season meetings with the Bulldogs.

The top seed has won the tournament six times and the last 11 years and Loyola will look to become the first repeat champion since Northern Iowa in 2015 and 2016 when it begins play against the winner of No. 8 Indiana State (7-11, 15-15) and No. 9 Valparaiso (7-11, 14-17) at noon Friday.

The Ramblers, who won their second consecutive regular season championship, feature 6-4 senior guard Marques Townes, the Larry Bid Player of the Year. He’s averaging a team-high 15.9 points and led Loyola in assists with 107.

Teammate Cameron Krutwig, a 6-9 sophomore center, was a first-team All-MVC selection after averaging 14.9 points and 7.3 rebounds.

A year after winning the Larry Bird award, guard Clayton Custer is averaging 11.4 points in his senior season. He was a third-team selection.

“If you just look at the numbers, it’s been down, but he means everything to us,” Moser said of Custer. “He’s about winning. He’s about our program. He means everything to us.”

As does Sister Jean, the 99-year-old chaplain who became an overnight sensation during last year’s NCAA Tournament.

“She wouldn’t miss the tournament for anything. She’ll be there,” Moser said. “Like I’ve said many times, she is our program’s comfort blanket. She makes everybody feel good. She is a huge part of our family, the basketball program and the university.”

While Loyola’s run to a regular-season MVC championship didn’t come as a surprise, the fact that the Ramblers are sharing the title with the Drake Bulldogs does.

Picked to finish ninth in the preseason poll, Drake became the third team picked second-to-last before winning at least a share of the title. Creighton (1998) and Drake (2008) also accomplished the feat.

“It’s the time of the year where you are locked in with who you are and you know all the opponents pretty well,” said Darian DeVries, who became the 20th first-year coach and third since 1980 to win the MVC regular-season title.

Drake opens the tournament against the winner of No. 7 Illinois State (9-9, 16-15) and No. 10 Evansville (5-13, 11-20).

The Bulldogs are led by All-MVC first-team selection Nick McGlynn, a 6-8 senior forward who is averaging 15.6 points and shooting 54.3 percent from the field.

Second-team selection and All-Newcomer selection Brady Ellingson, a 6-4 senior transfer from Iowa, is averaging 12.1 points.

Both players, along with freshman D.J. Wilkins, who is averaging 11.1 points, and Nick Norton, who is averaging 14 points, will also be needed in St. Louis for Drake to win its first tournament title since 2008.

“It comes down to playing hard and competing,” DeVries said. “You hope what you do is good enough on any particular night.”

Arizona State vs Colorado

Arizona State vs Colorado : The Arizona State Sun Devils will hit the road and take on Pac-12 rival, the Colorado Buffaloes, at the CU Events Center in Boulder Wednesday night. The Sun Devils are 7-4 in Pac-12 play this season after defeating the Washington Huskies, 75-63, this past Saturday night. Leading the way for Arizona State has been freshman guard Luguentz Dort, with 16.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists per game.

Trying to figure out the direction of Arizona State basketball is an impossible task at this point. ASU was blown out at home by one of the worst team’s in the country, and then followed up two days later by easily besting a team that has been receiving top 25 votes.

In the win over Washington, the Sun Devils played a very aggressive style on offense where they turned the ball over a lot but also shot very efficiently. Arizona State did a really good job of getting the ball inside to their bigs, especially sophomore forward Romello White who scored 17 points on 8-of-9 shooting.

Now, ASU heads back on the road for their first rematch of the season, as they travel to Boulder for a meeting with the Buffaloes. Colorado began their conference season by getting swept by both Arizona schools, which in both games CU’s offense struggled to get going.

In their Jan. 5 matchup in Tempe, the Buffaloes shot a disappointing 33 percent from the field, and were only 5-of-26 beyond the arch, good for only a 19 percent clip from distance.

ASU’s defense is very capable of creating tough shots for opponents, but it’s unlikely to expect a good shooting CU team to have the same struggles. Especially when they’re playing on their home floor and are seeking redemption.

The key outside shooter for Colorado is junior forward Lucas Seiwert, who has done a nice job in the stretch-four role this season. Seiwert couldn’t get going offensively during the first meeting in Tempe, as he scored only three points on 1-of-9 shooting.

He will likely be looking to redeem himself by knocking down shots at the Buffaloes are thinking upset.

Colorado’s front court features another productive player in sophomore wing Tyler Bey, who’s done a tremendous job on the glass. He too was limited in the first meeting but has had a good season averaging 12 points per game as well as 8.9 rebounds per contest.

Arizona State does a tremendous job of rebounding the basketball, so they match up well against a Colorado team that employs a more team-oriented style of offense. Where they have had trouble is containing one individual player like Washington State’s Robert Franks Jr.

The Sun Devils also received good news that freshman forward Taeshon Cherry has been cleared to return to action. Cherry has missed extended time due to a concussion suffered against UCLA on Jan. 24. He played limited minutes against Arizona before re-aggrevating the injury keeping him out against the Washington schools.

It’s well-known that ASU has yet to complete a road sweep with Bobby Hurley as head coach. There is many factors that make the trip to the mountain schools daunting, but the Sun Devils should matchup well with both opponents as they seek to keep climbing the conference standings. McKinley Wright IV scored 24 points with six rebounds and eight assists, Tyler Bey had 22 points and 17 rebounds and Colorado got past Arizona State 77-73 on Wednesday night.

The duo dominated inside as Colorado (15-9, 6-6 in Pac-12) scored 38 points in the paint.

The Sun Devils (16-8, 7-5) were led by Luguentz Dort’s 21 points on 13 shots. Taeshon Cherry, who returned from a concussion, was limited to eight points due to foul trouble.The game featured nine ties and seven lead changes. An extended Colorado run of 29-16 in the second half finally created separation. The run was capped by a 3-pointer by Wright with a little less than three minutes left.

Wright also had eight assists while shooting effectively from the field at 9 of 13. Bey set his career high in rebounds.

BIG PICTURE

The Buffaloes have won four straight in conference play for the first time since the 2005-06 season. Last weekend Colorado earned just its second road sweep since joining the Pac-12. They are looking to work their way up from the bottom of the conference with a home-heavy slate ahead.

Arizona State continues to struggle at Colorado. The Buffaloes have won five straight against the Sun Devils and eight of nine all-time. Arizona State’s one win came in overtime six years ago.

UP NEXT

Colorado and Arizona came into Wednesday in a four-way tie for seventh place in the Pac-12. The two will play in Boulder on Sunday evening.

Arizona State and Utah entered in a three-way tie for second place in the conference. They will play one another on Saturday in Salt Lake City.

Capitals vs Flyers

Capitals vs Flyers : The Flyers are riding a five-game point streak (4-0-1) and are seven points back of the wild card.

It took 67 games into the regular season, but the Stanley Cup champions finally play their first game at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Flyers (32-26-8, 72 points) and Capitals (38-21-7, 83 points) will get to know each other quite well over the next several weeks with three games over a span of 19 days.

Since losing to the Capitals, 5-3, in their only meeting so far this season on Jan. 8, the Flyers own a 17-4-2 record.

Let’s take a look at Wednesday night’s essentials.

• When: 7:30 p.m. ET
• Where: Wells Fargo Center
• Broadcast: NBCSN
• Live stream: NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com and the NBC Sports MyTeams app

• The Flyers begin the night seven points back of the Montreal Canadiens for the final wild-card position in the Eastern Conference.

The Flyers are 6-2-1 this season when they generate 40 or more shots on net. One of those two losses came against the Capitals with the other against the Penguins on Feb. 11.

Nolan Patrick will be a game-time decision after taking a puck to the back of the head in the first period of Sunday’s 4-1 win at Nassau Coliseum. A cut to Patrick’s head required six stitches to close. The Flyers’ center felt a little woozy and did not return to the game, but participated in Wednesday’s morning skate.

I felt pretty good. I’ve never taken a shot off my head. It went through the back of my earpiece. That’s the first time that’s ever happened, just trying to get my blocked shot totals up a little bit.

• In his six appearances since returning from injury, Brian Elliott has been stellar with a 3-0-1 record, a 2.28 GAA and .936 save percentage.

Right winger Jakub Voracek will miss his second straight game with a lower-body injury. Prior to this season, Voracek had played the full slate in five of the past six seasons. The last time Voracek missed extensive time was for a foot injury in February 2016 that forced him to miss nine games.

• Defenseman Travis Sanheim comes into Wednesday with a five-game point streak with four goals and two assists.

In Sanheim’s first 31 games under Dave Hakstol, he had just 10 points while averaging 16:06 TOI. However, under interim head coach Scott Gordon, Sanheim has seen his role expand with 19 points and 21:22 TOI in his last 35 games.

• Goaltender Carter Hart took the morning skate with his teammates, but will not dress against the Capitals. Gordon said Tuesday he doesn’t believe Hart will be ready for the March 9 game against the Islanders.

• After scoring March 1 against the Islanders, Alex Ovechkin became the first player in NHL history with 10 45-goal seasons, topping Wayne Gretzky and Mike Bossy’s nine.

Ovechkin can also become the first player ever to finish atop the goal-scoring race eight times in his career, as he’s currently tied with Bobby Hull.

• Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby is currently one win shy of 250 career victories. If he beats the Flyers, Holtby would become the second-fastest to reach that mark in 409 games, trailing only Ken Dryden, who needed just 381 games. Coming off a victory over the New York Islanders in their last contest, the Philadelphia Flyers faced yet another Metro Division foe in the Washington Capitals.

Brian Elliott received the start from Interim Head Coach Scott Gordon and opposed Braden Holtby. Holtby entered the matchup with a 2.94 Goals-Against Average and a .909 save percentage in 47 games seen thus far. The Flyers had to mimic their offensive performances of late, going up against a Capitals team who struggles defensively at times.

Washington brought a good amount of pressure to start the game, eventually turning it into a goal from Tom Wilson. Wilson shot a puck right passed Elliott in front of the net off of an impressive pass from Alex Ovechkin, giving their team an early 1-0 lead. The Flyers received a power-play soon after but couldn’t find a way to capitalize, or even register a shot, on the opportunity. Brett Connolly would score his 17th on the year minutes later and eventually put Philadelphia in a two goal deficit after 20 minutes of action.

Sean Couturier took a tripping penalty to begin the second, putting the Flyers on their first penalty kill of the evening. The two minute penalty ended up costing the Orange and Black, because of course, as Ovechkin potted his league leading 46th goal of the season to give the Caps a 3-0 advantage. Andre Burakovsky joined in on the fun, chasing Elliott out of the game with his 10th tally of this season.

Cam Talbot entered in relief of Elliott and immediately gave up a goal in true Flyers fashion. He had to get rid of that initiation process at some point, right? After all was said and done, Philadelphia found themselves down 5-1 thanks to a goal from Philippe Myers in the final minute of the frame.

Rice vs UTSA

The game will be streamed on ESPN+ with Lincoln Rose as play-by-play and Van Chancellor as the color analyst.

AUSTIN, Texas – UTSA erased an early deficit with an eight-run fifth, defeating No. 19 Texas 10-7 Wednesday at UFCU Disch-Faulk Field.

This is the first win for the Roadrunners (6-3) over Texas (7-3) in 12 years, dating back to a 2008 victory at Disch-Faulk Field, and just the fourth win all-time in Austin.

“It’s just big,” UTSA head coach Jason Marshall said. “This win follows you throughout the season. It follows you RPI wise. Our guys will find some confidence out of this win. Still, it’s early and we’re still learning about this team. To get a big win like that, it’s a signature moment in 2019.”

Hunter Mason took over on the mound to start the fourth for UTSA. He shutdown the Longhorns’ offense that built 6-0 lead through the first three innings, with three in the first and three more in the third.

Mason tossed 4.0 scoreless innings, allowing two hits, walking one and striking out six, earning his first career win. This was the longest outing of his career.

In the fifth, his offense rewarded him with eight runs on four hits and capitalizing on two miscues by the Longhorns’ defense.

The first six Roadrunners reached safely in the fifth, beginning with Shane Sirdashney’s walk, which was the fourth consecutive Roadrunner to open an inning with a walk. A single and another base-on-balls loaded the bags. Griffin Paxton and Bryan Arias delivered back-to-back opposite field hits, driving in two runs each and trimming the deficit to 6-4.

A third walk issued by the Texas pitching staff and a throwing error on Taylor Barber’s sacrifice bunt loaded the bases again, still with no outs. The Longhorns’ third baseman booted a grounder, allowing another run and keeping the bags full. Bryan Sturges made the first out of the inning but it knotted the score at 6-6 when Dylan Rock tagged from third on the sacrifice fly.

Joshua Lamb, who went 3-for-5 at the plate, capped the eight-run inning when he deposited a two-out single into right center.

Solo tallies in the next two innings pushed UTSA’s lead out to 10-6 and the bullpen did the rest.

Texas opened the game with the first three Longhorns’ reaching safely and opened the scoring when Zach Zubia grounded into a double play. Back-to-back singles extended the advantage to 3-0.

In the bottom of the third, the home team recorded three extra-base hits by the first three batters.

Zubia’s leadoff homer hit the top of the short wall in left and landed in the Roadrunners bullpen, making the lead 4-0. After a double by Ryan Reynolds, Tate Shaw blasted a two-run homer to right field. UTSA starter, Shane Daughety finished his outing by retiring the next three hitters and giving way to Mason in the fourth.

UTSA showed great plate discipline, collecting seven hits and 10 walks, while striking out just six times.

Lamb led UTSA with three knocks and three RBIs. Paxton and Rock extended their hitting streaks to nine games. Paxton and Arias drove in two runs each.

The Roadrunners open a three-game series against Bradley at 6 p.m. Friday. The live stream is available at CUSA.tv.

Manchester United vs PSG Paris

Manchester United vs PSG Paris : Champions League 2018-19 Manchester United travel to Parc des Princes to face Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16 tie.

Alexis Sanchez faces up to six weeks out with a knee injury, Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed.The 30-year-old’s Old Trafford career hit its latest roadblock as he was forced off early in the second half of Saturday’s 3-2 Premier League win against Southampton.Chile physio Pedro Onate said forward Sanchez would be “unavailable to play for between six and eight weeks”.Solskjaer was asked about those comments ahead of the second leg of United’s Champions League last-16 clash with Paris Saint-Germain.”It was a bad knee injury so if it’s four weeks or six, hopefully he’ll recover quickly,” the Norwegian told a press conference. PA.

The only blot so far on caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s otherwise near-pristine copybook came at Old Trafford on February 12, when a PSG side lacking injured stars Neymar and Edinson Cavani triumphed 2-0 courtesy of second-half goals from Presnel Kimpembe and the irrepressible Kylian Mbappe.United’s hopes of completing a stunning turnaround in the French capital have been severely hampered by an injury crisis that has left Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial, Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia all sidelined.Paul Pogba will also sit out the second leg through suspension after his late second booking that capped a disappointing night for the hosts last month.

United have won 10 of 12 Premier League games under Solskjaer to date and engineered one comeback over the weekend as they came from behind to beat Southampton 3-2 and strengthen their bid for a top-four finish.PSG, who saw Cavani return to training on Tuesday, have lost only one of their last 16 home matches in Europe’s elite club competition and are currently 17 points clear at the Ligue 1 summit following Mbappe’s double in a 2-1 win over Caen last time out.

PSG’s 2-0 victory came with some fortune, with the hosts losing Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard to injury before half-time, and the French champions made United pay with a clinical and disciplined display.The Parisians have been in rampant form since their victory on English soil. Fifteen goals in their last five domestic matches has underlined the mood they are in.Solskjaer’s team have survived a crippling injury crisis and remain unbeaten since their defeat to PSG in February.

United are short of experienced heads, but PSG will be missing Brazil superstar Neymar as he continues his rehabilitation from injury. However, Edinson Cavani could be a surprise inclusion in the home team’s matchday squad.According to TF1 (h/t Alex Smith of the Mirror), Cavani is set to return to training after a hip injury, and he could be given a role on the bench against United if deemed ready by coach Thomas Tuchel.Solskjaer has said his team are willing to fight until the end in Paris, commenting that United feel “invincible” after a run of strong results.”I have to say that we feel invincible. We feel that every game we are in with a chance to win. The belief is here now, I have to say. They are confident going into the game, even knowing that we are 2-0 down. We know it is going to be difficult, we played them here and they are a good team, and we have got loads of injuries, but there’s a few boys here that will want to be part of it. Certainly, for our players they know what we are capable of and we have spoken about it. They know that they are part of a special club that can do something like this. We are not going to go there and lay down. We are going to give it a go. We have got to go for it. We have a mountain to climb. But we have quality players.”

The club will have to win the hard way in the last 16 with Paul Pogba suspended for the game.The France international was shown a second yellow card at the end of the first leg for a rash challenge, and that decision could deny United the quality they need to overturn the result.The Red Devils’ overall weakness remains their defence, but Victor Lindelof has been superb since Solskjaer took the reins in December.Kylian Mbappe was deadly as the lone striker in Manchester, and the French prodigy could once again be the player who decides the result, just as he was in the first leg.
