UNDATED (AP) — Memphis and Michigan State face tough matchups amid difficult offcourt situations in college basketball's second week. The No. 13 Tigers face No. 14 Oregon on Tuesday amid eligibility concerns for touted freshman James Wiseman. Third-ranked Michigan State visits No. 12 Seton Hall on Thursday following an emotional win after the death of star Cassius Winston's brother.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Aaron Nesmith scored 21 points and Saben Lee came off the bench to score 15 to lead Vanderbilt to a 71-66 win over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. The Commodores improved to 2-0 under first-year coach Jerry Stackhouse, who inherited a team coming off the worst season in school history. Vanderbilt rallied from a five-point deficit with a 10-0 run midway through the second half.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Guard Jay Jay Chandler scored 17 points and Texas A&M overcame a double-digit deficit in the second half to defeat Louisiana-Monroe 63-57. The Aggies trailed 36-26 with 17:08 remaining in the game when Chandler sank consecutive 3-pointers to pull the home team within four at 36-32. Chandler then followed with two made free throws after a foul on his drive to the basket, giving ULM a 36-34 advantage. A&M (2-0) finally tied the game at 45-45 on a thunderous alley-oop dunk by forward Josh Nebo

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Freshman Javian Davis scored 19 points and Alabama beat Florida Atlantic 78-59 to earn the first victory of the Nate Oats era.

Along with Carter in double figures was freshman Aliyah Matharu, who had her second double-digit scoring contest in as many games with 15 points.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU coach Ed Orgeron says his boisterous and sometimes profane locker room speech after the top-ranked Tigers defeated Alabama last weekend was not meant for public consumption and not meant to hurt anyone. An LSU player posted a 14-second excerpt of the speech in which Orgeron can be heard yelling that LSU is going to beat Alabama in recruiting and every time they meet. Orgeron also uses an expletive to mock Alabama's "Roll Tide" rallying cry. Orgeron says it was just a "fiery moment."

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Rennia Davis had a career-high 33 points and 10 rebounds to lead Tennessee past No. 15 Notre Dame 74-63. Davis became the first Lady Vol since Candace Parker with 30 points and 10 rebounds against a ranked opponent.
