DEVILS-BLUE JACKETS

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Andy Greene scored, Travis Zajac added an empty-net goal, and Cory Schneider made 33 saves for his fourth shutout of the season to lead the New Jersey Devils past the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-0 on Saturday night.

Playing their lone road game in a 10-game, 23-day stretch, the Devils won for the first time in four away games. They had lost their previous two games overall.

Curtis McElhinney made 19 saves for Columbus, which has lost five in a row (0-4-1). The Blue Jackets are .500 on the road (14-14-2) but just 12-17-2 at home.

BLUE JACKETS-BOBROVSKY

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky off injured reserve after he missed 15 games because of a groin injury.

The club also assigned goaltender Oscar Dansk to its American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts, on Saturday.

The 26-year-old Bobrovsky, winner of the 2013 Vezina Trophy as the league's top goalie, is 16-15-2 record with a 2.85 goals-against average, .913 save percentage and one shutout in 33 games this season. The injury caused him to miss the All-Star game.

The 20-year-old Dansk was recalled this week to back up Curtis McElhinney, who has been starting in place of the injured Bobrovsky.

CAVALIERS-IRVING INJURY

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving will miss his second straight game with a strained left shoulder.

Irving injured his shoulder in the second half Thursday night in a home win over Golden State. He did not travel with the team for Friday night's game at Indiana and the Cavs said he will also sit out Sunday's game at Houston.

Irving received more treatment on his shoulder Saturday at the team's training complex in Independence, Ohio. His status will next be updated at the team's shootaround on Tuesday before the Cavs host the Boston Celtics.

Cleveland lost 93-86 to the Pacers without Irving and LeBron James, who was kept out with a sore back. James has missed 11 games this season with an assortment of injuries and the team has gone 2-9 without the four-time MVP.

Irving is averaging 21.7 points and 5.2 assists.

T25-VILLANOVA-XAVIER

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Kris Jenkins' back-to-back 3-pointers started a late run that rallied No. 6 Villanova to its 10th straight victory on Saturday, 78-66 over Xavier.

The Wildcats (27-2, 14-2 Big East) made five 3s -- their specialty -- during a 17-7 spurt for their only substantial lead of the game. Jenkins had 14 points to go with Dylan Ennis' team-high 16.

The winning streak is Villanova's second-longest in Big East regular season play, trailing an 11-game streak in 2005-06. The Wildcats have won 27 games for the fourth time in school history.

Xavier (18-12, 8-9) led most of the way and had a nine-point advantage at the start of the second half. The Musketeers couldn't weather a late 3-point barrage by Villanova, which went 13 of 29 from beyond the arc overall.

MILWAUKEE-YOUNGSTOWN ST

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) -- Matt Tiby and Akeem Springs combined for 43 points as Milwaukee recovered from a late Youngstown State run to win 82-74 on Saturday night.

The Panthers (14-16, 9-7 Horizon) led 46-29 at the break after Youngstown State shot just 28 percent. The Penguins improved to 43.6 percent in the second half, and a 16-2 run gave them the lead for the first time in the contest, 69-67, with 5:19 remaining.

Tiby answered with a 3 to put Milwaukee back in front with 4:57 left, and the Panthers clung to a narrow lead until 8-of-8 free throw shooting in the final 2 minutes sealed it.

Tiby scored 22 points with 11 rebounds, Springs had 21 points, and Steve McWhorter added 18 with seven assists.

Bobby Hain scored the Penguins' final seven points, and finished with 17 points and 13 boards. Shawn Amiker scored 23 points for Youngstown State (11-20, 2-14).

BUFFALO-KENT ST

KENT, Ohio (AP) -- Shannon Evans scored 21 points and had six assists Saturday and Buffalo beat Kent State 71-65 to tie the Golden Flashes for second place in Mid-American Conference East Division standings.

Jarryn Skeete and Lamonte Bearden scored 14 apiece for the Bulls (19-9, 10-6).

Skeete hit four straight 3-pointers and Buffalo led 12-7 then pulled ahead 28-18 after a 3 by Evans. Kent State rallied to lead 31-30 after a 15-2 run, but Buffalo led 34-31 at halftime.

Bufflalo used a 16-10 second-half run capped by a 3-pointer by Evans to build a 50-41 lead, but Devareaux Manley scored 13 straight points to pull Kent State within 68-63 with 24 seconds left. Jimmy Hall made it a four-point game, 69-65, with a layup for the Golden Flashes, but Evans iced it with two free throws.

Jimmy Hall scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Kent State (19-10, 10-6), Manley scored 19 and Derek Jackson had 10 with five steals.

BALL ST-TOLEDO

TOLDEO, Ohio (AP) -- J.D. Weatherspoon scored 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, Justin Drummond added 17 points and Toldeo beat Ball State 70-59 on Saturday.

Nathan Boothe scored 12 points and Julius Brown had seven assists for the Rockets (19-10, 11-5), who entered the contest trailing first-place Central Michigan by a game in the Mid-American Conference West Division standings.

Toledo led 16-9 on a 3-pointer by Stuckey Mosley and never trailed. Julius Brown hit back-to-back jumpers and the Rockets led 36-25 at halftime, shooting 50 percent from the floor to Ball State's 29.4 percent. The Cardinals were 3 for 17 from 3-point range before intermission.

Ball State drew within five, 56-51, on a layup by Franko House, but Toledo pulled away on a 10-2 run and led 66-53 with 1:34 to go.

Bo Calhoun led Ball State (7-20, 2-14) with 30 points and House grabbed 10 rebounds.

CINCINNATI-TULANE

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Octavius Ellis netted a double-double, scoring 14 points and grabbing 10 rebounds, as Cincinnati took an early lead and held it to beat Tulane 63-47 on Saturday.

Kevin Johnson added 15 points for the Bearcats (20-9, 11-5 American Conference), Shaquille Thomas had 11 points and Gary Clark had eight points and nine rebounds.

Johnson sank back-to-back 3-pointers -- he was 4 of 6 from distance overall -- to cap a 13-4 start for the Bearcats on their way to a 30-16 advantage at the break.

Tulane got to within 12 points, 37-25, early in the second half but could not get closer as Cincinnati continued to dominate and cruised to the win. The Bearcats outrebounded Tulane 40-26 overall and finished with 47.2 percent shooting from the field compared to 34.8 percent for Tulane.

Louis Dabney led the Green Wave (14-14, 5-11) with 18 points.

WRIGHT ST-ILL-CHICAGO

CHICAGO (AP) -- Marc Brown scored 18 points as Illinois-Chicago, despite poor shooting, scored 24 points at the foul line and defeated Wright State 61-46 on Saturday.

UIC (8-23, 4-12 Horizon League) hit just 17 of 49 shots, and were just 3 of 12 from 3-point range, but sank 24 of 27 foul shots off 22 Wright State fouls.

Wright State (11-19, 3-13) made more field goals (20 of 53), but took only five free throws, making three.

Brown has scored 21, 12 and 18 points in the past week although the Flames lost the first two in that span. Jay Harris added 12 points and dished eight assists for the Flames. Ahman Fells had 11 rebounds and four steals.

Brown tied the game at 10-10 with a layup as UIC used a 10-0 run to break away.

The Flames host a first-round tournament game Tuesday as the No. 6 seed.

James missed a pair of free throws with 4.2 seconds left in overtime, allowing the Rockets to maintain the lead in a 105-103 win over the Cavs. He capped his 37-point performance with a 3-pointer in the final minute to get Cleveland within a point.

MLB-MINOSO OBIT

CHICAGO (AP) -- Minnie Minoso was one of Chicago's all-time favorite baseball players as he was selected to nine All-Star games and won three Gold Gloves. Minoso has died, according to the Cook County medical examiner. There is some question about Minoso's age, but the White Sox say he was 90.

The Cuban-born Minoso became the majors' first black player for a Chicago team and hit a two-run homer in his first at-bat. He played 12 of his 17 seasons with the White Sox, hitting .304 with 135 home runs and 808 RBIs for the franchise.

One of two players in major league history to play in five decades, he got his final hit in 1976 at age 53 and went 0-for-2 in two games in 1980 for the White Sox. The Chisox retired his No. 9 in 1983 and later erected a statue of Minoso at U.S. Cellular Field.
