KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Fourth-ranked Wichita State (21-0) has become the marquee opponent on everybody's schedule. Along with top-ranked Arizona and No. 2 Syracuse, the Shockers are among three unbeaten teams left in men's Division I basketball. And considering the weakened state of the Missouri Valley Conference and the schedule they still have left, there's a good chance Wichita State could become the first team to enter the NCAA tournament with an unblemished record since UNLV in 1991. The Shockers play Loyola of Chicago on Tuesday night.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas will attempt to climb back into the Southeastern Conference race when it hosts Missouri on Tuesday night. The Razorbacks (13-6, 2-4 SEC) have won 25 of their last 26 games in Bud Walton Arena. Arkansas coach Mike Anderson left the Tigers (15-4, 3-3) to join the Razorbacks following the 2010-11 season.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Missouri curators say they expect a public discussion this week of a former university swimmer's allegations that she had been sexually assaulted by several football players before later committing suicide. The Board of Curators will meet Wednesday in Columbia. Curators David Bradley and Wayne Goode told The Associated Press Monday the board will review system President Tim Wolfe's call for an external legal review into Sasha Menu Courey's death in 2011.

CHICAGO (AP) — Kevin Love scored 31 points to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves over the Chicago Bulls 95-86 Monday night.

Carlos Boozer had 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Bulls, who played without ailing center Joakim Noah (illness) and guard Kirk Hinrich (hamstring). D.J. Augustin added 19 points.
