Gary Harris scored 17 points and Derrick Nix had 14 to help No. 8 Michigan State rout No. 4 Michigan 75-52 on Tuesday night in East Lansing, Mich., in the rivalry's first matchup of top 10 teams.

The Spartans (21-4, 10-2 Big Ten) broke a first-place tie in the conference with No. 1 Indiana. The Wolverines (21-4, 8-4) have lost three of four.

Michigan State didn't trail once and enjoyed 30-point leads in the second half.

Florida 69, Kentucky 52: Scottie Wilbekin had 14 points and eight assists, and the No. 7 Gators handled the No. 25 Wildcats in Gainesville, Fla.

Kentucky (17-7, 8-3 Southeastern Conference) lost for the first time in six games, and it might have been costly. Nerlens Noel, the nation's leading shot-blocker, injured his left knee in the second half and did not return after teammates carried him off the court. The extent of the injury was unknown.

Women

Baylor 89, Texas Tech 47: Brittney Griner had 10 points and 11 rebounds for her 54th career double-double and the top-ranked Baylor Lady Bears moved closer to another Big 12 title with their 52nd consecutive home win.
