TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – Alabama team surgeon Dr. Lyle Cain said quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has undergone successful surgery in Houston after the Heisman hopeful dislocated his right hip in Saturday’s 38-7 win at Mississippi State.

Tagovailoa passed for 7,442 yards and a school-record 87 touchdowns despite less than two full seasons as starter.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack will be out indefinitely with a fractured right hand. Coach Frank Reich says Mack already has undergone a “procedure” and the team had not established a timetable for his return.

PORTLAND (AP) – Jrue Holiday had 22 points and 10 assists, Brandon Ingram added 21 points, and the New Orleans Pelicans spoiled Carmelo Anthony’s Portland debut with a 115-104 victory over the Trail Blazers. Anthony scored the Blazers’ first points of the game on a 3 from 26 feet out, but wound up missing 10 of 14 shots and finishing with 10 points in what was the first game of his 17th NBA season. Portland’s Damian Lillard sat out with back spasms.
MEMPHIS (AP) – Alec Burks scored a season-high 29 points, Glenn Robinson III added 20 as the Golden State Warriors snapped a seven-game losing streak with a commanding 114-95 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies.

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Brock Nelson’s second goal of the game 2:55 into overtime capped a frantic comeback to lift the New York Islanders over the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 to extend their unbeaten streak to 15 games.

The Americans likely will play Honduras in the Nations League semifinals in June, with Mexico meeting Costa Rica.
MADRID (AP) – Canada has beaten the United States in the Davis Cup for the first time. It defeated the Americans 2-0 on the second day of the revamped team competition.

IOWA CITY (AP) — Iowa’s defense made sure the team that was leading the nation in turnover margin gave up the ball. The No. 19 Hawkeyes forced three turnovers in Saturday’s 19-10 win over Illinois, another stout performance from a defense that has been shutting teams down all season. Iowa (8-3, 5-3 Big Ten), which came into the game allowing just 12.4 points per game, held Illinois to its lowest point total of the season one week after doing the same thing to Minnesota in a 23-19 win.
AMES (AP) — With a chance to finish off the surprisingly tough Jayhawks, Iowa State coach Matt Campbell put the game in sophomore quarterback Brock Purdy’s hands. Purdy made Campbell look like a genius, closing the door on Kansas with a fourth-down touchdown pass with 1:09 left. Purdy threw for 372 yards and four TDs — including the game-clinching one on fourth-and-goal from the 4 — and Iowa State (7-4, 5-3 Big 12) rallied to beat Kansas 41-31 on Saturday and clinch its third straight winning season.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Nebraska ended a four-game skid and kept alive its hope of becoming bowl eligible by defeating mistake-prone Maryland 54-7 Saturday behind a standout performance by quarterback Adrian Martinez.

With a win at home against Iowa on Friday in the regular-season finale, Nebraska will become eligible for a bowl bid for the first time since 2016.
