CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Quinndary Weatherspoon knew Mississippi State needed a lift and was glad to provide it. He was also happy when his teammates chipped in.Weatherspoon scored 19 of his career-high 25 points in the first half to lead the Bulldogs to an 80-68 victory over Boise State at the Charleston Classic on Friday night. It was a welcome result after Mississippi State lost to UCF -- it trailed 47-19 in the first half -- on Thursday night in their opening game at TD Arena.I was just looking for openings and finding others out there, Weatherspoon said. I was trying to create for others.The result was a satisfying win for the Bulldogs (2-1), who will face UTEP for fifth place in the eight-team tournament.We did a really good job bouncing back, Mississippi State coach Ben Howland said.Weatherspoon was a main reason why.After Boise State tied the game at 18-all , Weatherspoon scored 11 straight points to help the Bulldogs build a six-point lead, 29-23.In the second half, all the Bulldogs got involved and grew the lead to 19 points on Weatherspoons steal and breakaway dunk.Boise State (1-2) could not get closer than eight points the rest of the way.Tyson Carter added 15 points for Mississippi State, who had all five starters go for double figures.Weatherspoon topped his old scoring mark of 24 points set against Vanderbilt last February.Boise State coach Leon Rice said his team struggled with its shooting touch and played a long stretch of the first half without starting forward Nick Duncan, who took an elbow to the head and needed seven stitches to close up a bloody gash.We hung in there, but with Nick going out and the foul trouble, it was difficult, he said.Weatherspoon, a quick, 6-foot-4 sophomore, made nine of 12 shots and added four steals and four rebounds.Chandler Hutchison and Paris Austin had 13 points each to top Boise State.BIG PICTUREMississippi State recovered from an awful effort against UCF -- the Bulldogs trailed by 28 points in the first half -- to defeat Boise State. There are still plenty of issues that need attention, however. The Bulldogs settled for way too many outside shots (they were just 2 of 15 from behind the arc the first 20 minutes) and post players Schneider Herard, Aric Holman and E.J. Datcher all struggled with their touch around the basket, combining to go 6 of 15 from the field against the Broncos.Boise State needs to find a second option when prime scorer Hutchison is off target, out of synch or on the bench with foul trouble as he was against Mississippi State. No one rose to the occasion for Boise State.HEY, I KNOW YOUThe Mississippi State-UTEP matchup will reunite good friends and L.A. rivals in Bulldogs coach Ben Howland and Miners coach Tim Floyd -- who battled each other in the West Coast, Howland as UCLAs coach and Floyd as USC leader. Its going to be a tough game, Howland said.INJURY WORRYQuinndary Weatherspoon went to the bench holding his left wrist. But after a quick look and some tape, Weatherspoon returned to the court. Despite the ice pack on his wrist, Weatherspoon said hed be ready to go for Sundays game.ITS NEVER OVERAfter Nick Duncan was stitched up, he returned to the court in a large, maroon bandage that looked like Sylvester Stallones famous head band worn by his Rambo character in First Blood. Yeah, it was kind of stylish, he said of his head band.UP NEXTMississippi State will play UTEP for fifth place at the Charleston Classic on Sunday.Boise State will play Western Michigan -- an all-Broncos matchup -- for seventh place at the Charleston Classic on Sunday.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Philadelphia Flyers are the hottest team in hockey.Wayne Simmonds scored two power-play goals and Philadelphia beat the Nashville Predators 4-2 on Sunday night to win its fifth consecutive game.Playing in front of a sellout crowd, the Flyers (14-10-3) earned their second road victory in two days against a Central Division team. They defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 on Saturday.The Predators (11-9-4) lost in regulation for only the second time in 12 home games this season.Weve got everything clicking. Our penalty kill has done a great job, our power play has scored some big goals and (goalie Steve Mason) has been standing on his head every night, Flyers defenseman Michael Del Zotto said. At the start of the year, wed have one good game and kind of get complacent. Now were just keeping our foot on the gas. We keep playing well, playing as five-man units.Simmonds, who leads the Flyers with 13 goals, scored twice against what had been a stingy Nashville penalty-kill at home. The Predators did not allow a power-play goal in their first 10 home games, but have given up three in their last two games.Hes doing what he does every night, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. If theres a better guy in the league net-front, whether its on power play or 5-on-5, I dont know who that is.What I really like about Simmer is that hes at net-front, hes scoring goals, hes on the power play. But hes a hard-nosed, 200-foot player.Michael Raffl gave Philadelphia its third one-goal lead with 3:23 left in the second period. He bulled his way past Nashville defenseman Mattias Ekholm, cut across the crease and slipped the puck beyond the reach of goalie Juuse Saros for a 3-2 advantage.Chris VandeVelde capped the scoring with an empty-net goal with 26.3 seconds remaining.Colin Wilson tied it at 2 for the Predators with 8:41 to go in the second, lifting a short-range backhand past Mason. Mike Fisher sent Wilson in alone on goal with a nice cross-ice pass from just inside the blue line.Nashville has 35 goals in the second period this season, one fewer than the team has totaled in the first and third combined.ddddddddddddIt was a tough weekend for the Predators, who lost to New Jersey 5-4 in overtime Saturday after the Devils rallied from a three-goal deficit in the third period.Last night was a great effort until the third period and we had a meltdown there, Nashville forward Filip Forsberg said Sunday. That cant happen, and today it was kind of the opposite. We started off not good and then we kind of got going as the game went. ... Everyone needs the points no matter where you are in the standings and the inspiration level has to be higher from the start.Simmonds second power-play goal of the night put the Flyers up 2-1 with 13:13 left in the second period. Simmonds stationed himself in front of the Nashville net and stuffed a shot under Saros.The Predators tied it 1-all with 16:43 left in the second when Calle Jarnkrok scored his fourth goal of the season. Jarnkrok redirected Ekholms drive from the blue line past Mason.The Flyers converted on their second power play of the game to take a 1-0 lead with 1:48 left in the opening period. Brayden Schenn ripped a shot from the faceoff circle, and Simmonds goal-mouth deflection bounced off the knob of Saros stick and into the net.Game notes Nashville forward Reid Boucher, picked up off waivers from New Jersey on Saturday, made his Predators debut. ...
