Indiana’s Cody Zeller, right, dunks on Taylor Braun during the first half for two of the center’s game-high 22 points.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Cody Zeller and his teammates were not themselves Monday night.

The 7-foot center had an excuse: He was sick. His teammates looked like they caught the same bug until they found a remedy at halftime.

Zeller, Remy Abell and Jeremy Hollowell turned the game with a second-half run as No. 1 Indiana (2-0) pulled away for an 87-61 victory over North Dakota State in the first round of the Progressive Legends Classic.

"Your fundamentals, your technique, all your experiences, all those things are really, really important, but there's nothing bigger than energy and toughness. It's got to be there constantly," Indiana coach Tom Crean said.

Abell, a sophomore, made all five shots including three 3-pointers to finish with a career-high 14 points. Hollowell, a freshman, scored 14 in 19 minutes, and freshman point guard Yogi Ferrell was strong on defense.

NO. 5 MICHIGAN 91, IUPUI 54: Trey Burke scored 22 and Glenn Robinson III added 21 for the host Wolverines (2-0) in the NIT Season Tip-Off.

NO. 17 MEMPHIS 81, N. FLORIDA 66: Tarik Black had 18 points and seven rebounds for the host Tigers, who overcame a sluggish start in their season opener.

NO. 18 UNLV 92, N. ARIZ. 54: Freshman Anthony Bennett had 22 points and seven rebounds to lead the host Rebels in their season opener.

NO. 20 NOTRE DAME 84, MONMOUTH 57: Garrick Sherman had 22 points and seven rebounds for the host Irish (2-0).

TOURNEY SITES: Madison Square Garden will host the East Region in 2014. The other region sites will be Anaheim, Calif., Indianapolis and Memphis, Tenn. Orlando will host second- and third-round games. The Final Four will be at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

AP POLL: Connecticut, which lost Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun and five underclassmen after last season, entered at No. 23. FSU fell out from 25th. Indiana remained No. 1.


NO. 13 VANDY 62, LIPSCOMB 45: Jasmine Lister had 24 points and hit 6 of 10 3-pointers for the visiting Commodores (1-1).

NO. 14 W. VA. 60, BOSTON U 57: Ayana Dunning had 16 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks to help the visiting Mountaineers (2-0) hang on.

NO. 23 MIAMI 69, RICHMOND 63: Michelle Woods had a career-high 20 points and Krystal Saunders hit a 3-pointer with 17.9 seconds left to lift the visiting Hurricanes (2-0).

AP POLL: Baylor remained a unanimous No. 1. No. 19 Texas and No. 25 Georgetown replaced Georgia Tech and DePaul.

    It turns out Caleb Brantley isn't quite the dirtbag that millions of people presumed. It's too bad the damage to his reputation and bank account is already done.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  4. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has



    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
