DETROIT (AP) - Matt Martin scored a tiebreaking goal with 16:36 remaining in the third period, capping an impressive comeback for the New York Islanders in a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Jordan Poole scored 19 of his 26 points in the second half, and No. 5 Michigan remained unbeaten with an 89-78 victory over South Carolina.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Kyle Ahrens scored Michigan State's final seven points, including a two-handed jam with 8.7 seconds remaining, and the 10th-ranked Spartans beat Florida 63-59.
