Washington takes the court against the Raptors, who had won four in a row before dropping a 105-96 decision to the Wizards in Toronto.

UNDATED (AP) — Just three top-25 men's basketball teams are in action tonight, with two squaring off in Morgantown. Tenth-ranked West Virginia puts its 23-7 record on the line against No. 24 Iowa State. The Mountaineers had won three straight and five of six before falling to Baylor earlier this week. The Cyclones have won six straight to improve to 20-7, but they were 85-72 losers to WVU on Jan. 31. The other ranked team on the docket, No. 21 Wichita State, faces Bradley in a Missouri Valley Conference quarterfinal game.

One shot back is Rory McIlroy, who would climb to the top of the world rankings with a victory in Mexico City. Current No. 1 Dustin Johnson opened with a 71 in his first round since climbing to the top of the rankings.
