Malik Hall forced two overtime periods with dunks out of inbound plays, and Michigan State outlasted No. 4 Kentucky 86-77 in double overtime on Tuesday night after Oscar Tshiebwe wrapped up his strong start to the season with a commit a fault.

Tshiebwe, consensus national player of the year last season, had 22 points and 18 rebounds for the Wildcats (2-1) before committing his fifth foul late in the first overtime.

Michigan State (2-1), after a one-point loss to No. 2 Gonzaga on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln, appeared headed for another tough non-conference loss in this Champions Classic game. But the Spartans tied the game in the dying seconds of regulation and overtime thanks to Hall, who finished with 20 points.

Joey Hauser scored 23 points and Mady Sissoko had a career-high 16 points with eight rebounds for the Spartans, who spent most of the second half playing catch-up. But with Tshiebwe on the bench, Michigan State closed out the game edging Kentucky 13-1. Sissoko gave the Spartans the lead with a slam alley-oop and had another dunk in the final minute.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Jalen Wilson scored a career-high 25 points and Gradey Dick made three crucial field goals in the final 2 1/2 minutes to lead Kansas past Duke at the Champions Classic.

Defending national champion Jayhawks (3-0) extended the longest active winning streak in the nation to 14 games. Wilson also grabbed 11 rebounds as coach Bill Self missed his third straight game due to a school-imposed suspension following a 2017 infraction scandal.

Duke (2-1) was led by Kyle Filipowski, who scored a season-high 17 points and had 14 rebounds to become the first player in school history to record double-doubles in each of his first three games. Jeremy Roach had 16 points as new coach Jon Scheyer lost his opener.

Kansas trailed 59-54 after Filipowski’s pullback with 4:39 left before rallying.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Caleb Love scored 20 points and Pete Nance added 18 as North Carolina fended off Gardner-Webb.

Anthony Selden scored 21 points, Julien Soumaoro 17 points and Kareem Reid added 10 points for Gardner-Webb (0-3), who faced a top-flight team for the first time.

After trailing by 16 points in the second half, the Runnin’ Bulldogs took less than five points in the final two minutes.

NOPE. 13 AUBURN 89, WINTHROP 65

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Johni Broome had 18 points, 13 rebounds and five blocked shots to lead Auburn past Winthrop.

Broome returned to the game four days after failing to make a basket against South Florida, helping the Tigers (3-0) put together a dominant streak after leading the Eagles (2-2) by just 11 in the start of the second period.

Wendell Green Jr. scored 10 of his 16 second-half points for Auburn.

Kelton Talford had 16 points and a career-high 14 rebounds for the Eagles. Toneari Lane made three 3-pointers and scored 18.

UNLV 60, No. 21 DAYTON 52

LAS VEGAS (AP) — EJ Harkless scored 24 points to help rally UNLV from a 12-point deficit to beat Dayton.

It was UNLV’s first non-conference win over a ranked opponent at home since losing No. 3 Arizona 71-67 on Dec. 23, 2014.

The Rebels (3-0) trailed 37-25 about four minutes into the second half before going on an 11-point run. They took the lead for good on Keshon Gilbert’s 3-pointer with 7:30 left, and Harkless added another 3 with 7:03 left for a 50-44 advantage.

UNLV also got the job done defensively, especially on Dayton post player DaRon Holmes. He was coming off a 20-point, seven-rebound, and five-block performance against SMU. But the Flyers (2-1) struggled to get the ball to him, and Holmes finished with two points on five shots to go with six rebounds.

Kobe Elvis led the Flyers with 16 points and Mike Sharavjamts scored 14.

NOPE. 25 UCONN 84, BUFFALO 64
