14/14 Utah 80, South Dakota State 66

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Freshman Brekkott Chapman scored a career-best 22 points to help No. 14 cruise past South Dakota State 80-66 on Tuesday night.

Delon Wright added 17 points, 10 assists and six rebounds for the Utes, who used a four-minute first-half run to take command and never looked back.

Dakarai Tucker added 11 points for Utah (9-2).

Cody Larson scored 13 points, Reed Tellinghuisen added 12 points and Zach Horstman had 10 for the Jackrabbits (9-4), who shot 39 percent and saw their seven-game winning streak snapped.

Chapman displayed a savvy inside-out floor game and seemed to be in the right place at the right time, whether it be by the basket for a rebound and a put-back or flying to the rim to receive a Wright-led fast break pass.

Alonzo Nelson-Ododa hit his first basket of the game, a 3-pointer, with 2:46 left to give Richmond a 51-47 lead.

IUPUI started the second half on a 14-3 run to take a 36-32 lead. Anthony stopped the run with his second 3-pointer of the half to end Richmond's 6-minute scoring drought.

Memphis 78, Western Illinois 51

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Nick King scored 12 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and led a balanced Memphis attack to a 78-51 rout of Western Illinois on Tuesday for the Tigers' fourth straight.

Calvin Godfrey scored 12 and grabbed nine rebounds, Austin Nichols scored 12, and Trahson Burrell and Pookie Powell scored 10 apiece.

The Tigers (7-4) never trailed and opened with a 12-2 run in which Nichols scored five of his 10 points in the half, then ripped an 18-2 run to lead 30-10. The Leathernecks made just 4 of 30 field goal attempts while the Tigers shot 63 percent from the field (17-27) and led 41-14 at halftime.

Western Illinois gained ground on an 11-2 second half run to trail 54-36 early, but the Tigers recovered and used a 9-4 run to lead 74-48 with 3:56 to play.
