OMAHA, Neb. (AP) An arrest warrant has been issued in Omaha for Creighton basketball player Maurice Watson Jr.

The Douglas County warrant filed Thursday lists a felony count of forcible sexual assault. An Omaha police incident report says a 19-year-old woman told investigators that Watson had nonconsensual sexual intercourse with her early in the morning Feb. 4. A police spokeswoman would not say Friday whether Watson has been taken into custody.

Online court records don't have the name of an attorney who could comment on Watson's behalf. Attempts to reach Watson to comment Friday were unsuccessful.


UNCW coach: Focus on NCAAs, not new job

Kevin Keatts is focused on helping UNC Wilmington earn another shot in the NCAA Tournament - not on any other jobs.

Buckeyes upset scuffling No. 16 Badgers

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Playing for little more than pride in front of a home crowd and a national TV audience, Ohio State put together its most complete game of the season.

The Buckeyes, out of the Big Ten race and nearing the end of a second straight underachieving season, showed a consistency that has been lacking for most of the season in an 83-73 victory over No. 16 Wisconsin on Thursday night.


No. 4 Arizona downs USC, Bruins up next

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Wildcats' season is in the home stretch. Allonzo Trier's is just getting started.

In his 10th game back from suspension, Trier scored a season-high 25 points, including four 3-pointers, and No. 4 Arizona beat USC 90-77 on Thursday night to stay alone atop the Pac-12 and set up a Saturday showdown against No. 5 UCLA.


No. 5 UCLA gets by ASU, pushes run to 6

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Fifth-ranked UCLA's game plan was to pound the ball inside against Arizona State's smaller lineup, and it worked to perfection.

The Bruins conceded the Sun Devils' 3-point shooting but were too much of a force in the paint, with 6-foot-10 T.J. Leaf leading the way with 25 points in the Bruins' 87-75 victory Thursday night.


Kansas' Graham arrested on court no-show

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Kansas guard Devonte Graham apologized Thursday for his arrest on a traffic-related warrant hours after helping the third-ranked Jayhawks to a record-tying 13th consecutive Big 12 Conference title with a win over TCU.

The school said in a statement that Graham was arrested Wednesday night for failing to appear in court last July after being ticketed for driving with an expired license plate. He was later freed on bond.

Surging No. 20 Gaels rout Pepperdine

MALIBU, Calif. (AP) Saint Mary's Jock Landale had a distinct height advantage against Pepperdine, and the only thing that slowed him was a power outage that caused the lights to go out.
