HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (AP) - Landry Shamut scored 19 points, and No. 19 Wichita State ended the nation's longest home-court winning streak, beating No. 5 Cincinnati 76-72 to leave the American Athletic Conference race wide-open. The Shockers beat a Top 5 team on the road for the first time since 1964. Cincinnati fell to 0-3 against ranked teams.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Leron Black scored a career-high 28 points and snagged seven rebounds, to help Illinois outlast Nebraska for a 72-66 victory. There were six ties and nine lead changes during the game, but the deciding basket came from Black.

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - The Kansas City Royals knew the day might come when Eric Hosmer left them. Now that the free agent first baseman is going to play in San Diego, Hosmer's former teammates are fondly remembering the guy who helped them win the 2015 World Series, and was big presence on and off the field.

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - A person with direct knowledge of the deal says free agent first baseman Eric Hosmer has reached preliminary agreement on an eight-year contract with the San Diego Padres, pending a physical. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because there had been no formal announcement of Hosmer's signing, which would become official once he passes a physical early in the week.

AMES, Iowa (AP) - Seventh-ranked Iowa trounced host Iowa State 35-6 in wrestling for its 14th consecutive win in the series. The Hawkeyes have won 29 of the last 30 meetings and 53 of the last 57 in a rivalry that dates back over 100 years.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Reed Timmer completed a 4-point play with 1.8 seconds left in the game to cap a 20-point outing in Drake's 67-63 win over Missouri State. Graham Woodward was left open in the corner for a 3-pointer to give Drake a 63-62 lead with 13.8 to go.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Sophie Cunningham scored 12 of her 32 points in the fourth quarter and No. 13 Missouri held on to beat No. 11 Tennessee. The Tigers (22-5, 10-4 Southeastern Conference) made 12 of 14 free throws in the fourth quarter but the two misses came in the final minute, giving the Lady Vols (21-6, 9-5) a chance.
