IRVING, Texas (AP) UTEP coach Tim Floyd was suspended for a game by Conference USA for failing to leave the court quickly after receiving two quick technical fouls and getting ejected in a loss at Louisiana Tech.

The league said Friday that Floyd violated the league's conduct policy, which calls for an automatic suspension if a coach doesn't leave the floor in a timely manner after an ejection. He will miss Saturday's game at Southern Miss.

The conference-leading Bulldogs took a big first-half lead that ballooned to 18 early in the second half of a 77-60 victory Thursday night. Floyd was ejected with 10:05 remaining.

Sluggish Gonzaga pushes win streak to 22

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) For all the frustration it caused, the slower and sometimes sluggish way No. 3 Gonzaga was forced to play Thursday night by San Diego could prove to be a benefit.

Stallings sorry for berating G Baldwin

Gophers end 15-game skid at Michigan St.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Carlos Morris missed a free throw that could have won the game in stunning fashion - but by that point, the hardest part was already over for Minnesota.

Minnesota snapped a 15-game losing streak in East Lansing, taking advantage of the Spartans' poor free throw shooting in the final minutes.
