SPURS-CAVALIERS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Tim Duncan and Boris Diaw scored 19 points apiece and the San Antonio Spurs beat Cleveland for the 10th straight time -- and got the best of LeBron James again -- with a 92-90 win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

Manu Ginobili scored on a layup with 18 seconds left, made a free throw with 9.1 to go and harassed James into a turnover with 1.9 seconds remaining for the defending NBA champions. It was the first meeting between the Spurs and James since last June, when San Antonio overpowered the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.

Anderson Varejao scored 23 points, Kyrie Irving added 20 and James 15 for the Cavs, who fell to 5-5.

James was just 6 of 17 from the field. After Ginobili missed his free throw, James tried to rush the ball up the floor for a possible game-tying basket but lost control near mid-court.

BENGALS-HILL'S BREAKTHROUGH

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jeremy Hill didn't expect to get much of a chance as a rookie because the Cincinnati Bengals had Giovani Bernard entrenched as the starter at running back. With Bernard hurt, the second-round pick has emerged.

Hill ran for 152 yards during a 27-10 win at New Orleans on Sunday, his second big game. He also ran for 154 yards against Jacksonville earlier this season. He leads all NFL rookies in rushing.

Hill joined Paul Robinson as the only Bengals rookies with a pair of 150-yard games. Robinson did it in 1968, the franchise's inaugural season.

Bernard returned to practice on Wednesday. It's unclear whether he'll play on Sunday at Houston (5-5). The Bengals (6-3-1) lead the tightly packed AFC North.

BROWNS-GORDON RETURNS

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon is practicing for the first time since his 10-game suspension ended.

Gordon, who led the league with 1,646 yards receiving last season, worked out with his teammates Wednesday and is expected to play Sunday in Atlanta. Gordon had a one-year ban for violating the NFL's drug policy reduced to 10 games in September and his return should give the Browns (6-4) a much needed offensive jolt.

Gordon showed some rustiness by dropping two passes during the portion of practice open to media members.

Coach Mike Pettine said the plan is to bring Gordon along slowly this week. Pettine said there's a danger in rushing Gordon back. Pettine met with Gordon before the team's pre-practice walk-through and said the 23-year-old is "very excited to be out there. He's ready to go."

BROWNS-INJURIES

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns linebacker Jabaal Sheard's foot injury is not as severe as originally feared and he could be back this season.

Sheard was injured on a non-contact play in Sunday's 23-7 loss to Houston. The Browns expected him to miss significant time, but coach Mike Pettine said Sheard got a second opinion that's "a little more encouraging." Pettine expects Sheard to be "down for a while" but is optimistic he'll be back at some point.

The Browns are expecting to be without inside linebacker Karlos Dansby for "upwards of a month" after he injured his left knee against the Texans. Pettine said Dansby, the team's leading tackler, is working hard to get back. Pettine has not ruled out Dansby for Sunday's game in Atlanta.

Browns Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron remains sidelined with a concussion sustained Oct. 26.

BLUE JACKETS MOVE

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have assigned center Michael Chaput (shah-POOT') to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts.

The 22-year-old Chaput has two assists and eight penalty minutes playing in all 18 games this season with the Blue Jackets. The Ile Bizard, Quebec, native who made his NHL debut on Oct. 27, 2013, vs. Anaheim, has three assists and 10 penalty minutes in 35 career games. He was acquired by the Blue Jackets in a trade with Philadelphia on Feb. 28, 2012.

MOREHEAD ST-CINCINNATI

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Farad Cobb scored 24 points in 28 minutes after coming off the bench to lead Cincinnati to a 69-61 victory over Morehead State on Wednesday night.

Cobb, a junior-college transfer who played his freshman year at Chattanooga, made 8 of 14 shots, including 6 of 9 from 3-point range, in scoring his Division I career-high 24 points. Octavius Ellis added 16 points and Troy Caupain 13 for the Bearcats (2-0).

Brent Arrington scored 21 points to lead the Eagles (1-2) with Angelo Warner adding 14 and Kareem Storey 11.

Neither team shot well, both at 37 percent, and both had 35 rebounds. But Cincinnati went to the free-throw line 34 times and made 22, including Ellis, who made 10 of 13. The Eagles made 12 of 16.

The game was tied with 17:11 left. Cobb sparked a 23-12 run, making four 3-pointers and adding three more points during the surge.

The Bearkats' scored their last nine points at the line to hold off the Eagles.

EVANSVILLE-MIAMI (OHIO)

OXFORD, Ohio (AP) -- Egidijus Mockevicius had 17 points and 12 rebounds, D.J. Balentine scored 19 and Evansville beat Miami of Ohio 69-50 on Wednesday night.

Mockevicius was 7 of 8 from the field and the Aces (2-0) shot 57.1 percent overall while holding Miami (1-1) to 39.6 percent.

Evansville led 44-37 with 10 minutes to go when Adam Wing and Mislav Brzoja made back-to-back 3-pointers. Balentine's layup with 7:58 left capped a quick 8-0 run and the Aces led by no less than 13 from there.

LJ Livingston was 6 of 6 from the field to lead Miami with 12 points, and Geovonie McKnight added 11 on 5-of-14 shooting.

The Aces scored two baskets in the final minute of the first half to take a 26-20 lead into the break. McKnight made 1 of 2 free throws with 14:31 to play to pull the Redhawks within five, but they would get no closer.

JACKSONVILLE ST-CLEVELAND ST

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Kaza Keane scored 13 points and Anton Grady added 12 to help Cleveland State beat Jacksonville State 60-46 on Wednesday night.

Keane hit a 70-foot trey at the buzzer to end the first half as the Vikings built a 34-21 lead. Marlin Mason made a 3-pointer with 9:30 remaining to stretch the Vikings lead to 53-32.

Jacksonville State answered with a 10-0 run to pull within 53-42 with 6:00 to play, but the Gamecocks did not get any closer.

Keane was 5 of 10 from the field, including two 3-pointers. Grady finished on 4-of-11 shooting and was 4 of 4 from the line. Mason chipped in 10 points and grabbed eight rebounds for the Vikings (2-1), who outrebounded the Gamecocks 39-24.

D.J. Felder scored 16 points and Darion Rackley added 10 to lead Jacksonville State (0-3).

The game was part of the Global Sports Showcase.

OHIO-FLORIDA GULF COAST

FORT MEYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Bernard Thompson scored 34 points, and Brett Comer dished out 10 assists to lead Florida Gulf Coast to a 79-62 victory over Ohio on Wednesday night.

Comer is now the all-time Atlantic Sun Conference career assist leader with 641, surpassing Mercer's Langston Hall's record of 633. He has had 10 or more assists in each game to open the season.

Thompson scored 18 points in the first half as Florida Gulf Coast built a 45-20 halftime lead. Thompson was 14 of 20 from the field, including three 3-pointers.

Jamail Jones and Marc-Eddy Norelia each added 11 points for the Eagles.

Javarez Willis scored 17 points and Maurice Daly Ndour chipped in 16 for Ohio (1-1), who shot just 33 percent (20 of 60) from the floor.

Florida Gulf Coast (3-0) has not started a season 3-0 since 2005-06.

WRIGHT ST-BOWLING GREEN

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- Zack Denny made four 3-pointers and finished with 18 points to lead Bowling Green to a 70-55 win over Wright State on Wednesday.

Spencer Parker added 14 points and six rebounds for Bowling Green (2-0). Richaun Holmes had nine points, eight rebounds and five blocks. The Falcons made 42.6 percent of their 54 shots, including 5 of 11 3-pointers.

Wright State (2-1) was paced by Chrishawn Hopkins with 13 points. Joe Thomasson scored nine points and grabbed nine rebounds. The Raiders made 17 of 52 shots (32.7 percent).

Denny scored the final seven Bowling Green points of the first half to pull within 28-27.

The lead changed hands five times in the first 5 minutes of the second half. Michael Karena's basket pulled Wright State within 49-46 with 10:10 remaining. That's the last field goal Wright State would make, going 9 of 10 from the free throw line the rest of the way.

T25-GEORGIA-OHIO ST

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Tiaria Griffin scored 16 points, including a trio of 3-pointers, to lead No. 24 Georgia to a 67-59 comeback win over Ohio State on Wednesday night.

Trailing 28-24 at the break, Georgia (3-0) retook the lead during a 10-0 run fueled by Mackenzie Engram, who scored eight of the points, making it 55-50 with 3:44 to go. Ohio State (1-2) responded with a 3-pointer from Cait Craft to close the gap to two but the Lady Bulldogs pulled away down the stretch.
