PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia 76ers absorbed their 11th consecutive loss and fell to 1-29 with a 104-90 setback against Memphis in Philadelphia. The Grizzlies shot 47 percent and scored 36 points off the 76ers' 28 turnovers. The Sixers are off to the worst 30-game start in NBA history and play their next six games on the road, where they have dropped 22 straight dating to last season.

UNDATED (AP) — DeMar DeRozan scored 28 points and Bismack Biyombo (BIHS'-mahk bee-AHM'-boh) had a career-high 20 rebounds as the Toronto Raptors knocked off Dallas 103-99. Also in the NBA, Kobe Bryant tied a season high with 31 points and the Los Angeles Lakers rallied from a 21-point, first-half deficit to beat Denver 111-107. And Kentavious (ken-TAY'-vee-uhs) Caldwell-Pope drained a go-ahead jumper with 55.5 seconds left to complete Detroit's comeback from an 18-point deficit in a 93-92 victory at Miami.

OAKLAND, Mich. (AP) — Bryn Forbes shot 7 of 9 from 3-point range while scoring a career-high 32 points, but top-ranked Michigan State needed overtime to beat Oakland 99-93. Eron Harris finished with 27 points for Michigan State, which trailed by 15 before improving to 13-0 for the first time in school history. The Spartans were playing their first game without Denzel Valentine, who is expected to miss 2-3 weeks following minor knee surgery.

UNDATED (AP) — The Dallas Stars have taken over sole possession of first place in the NHL's overall standings and maintained their eight-point lead in the Western Conference. The Stars top the league with 54 points at 26-7-2 following a 4-0 shutout of the defending Stanley Cup-champion Chicago Blackhawks. Antti Niemi (AN'-tee nee-EH'-mee) needed to make just 20 saves for his 35th career shutout and the Stars' third straight win.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Robert Stein drilled three field goals and Akron picked up its first bowl victory by downing Utah State 23-21 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Jatavis Brown was a beast on defense, recording eight tackles along with 1 1/2 sacks, 2 1/2 tackles for loss and a critical forced fumble.
