NEW YORK -- Baylor and South Florida put up points at record paces this week.The Lady Bears beat Winthrop 140-32 on Thursday in the biggest rout in Division I history. The 108-point margin of victory surpassed the 102 set by Grambling when it beat Jarvis Christian College 139-37 in 1986.We could have beaten a lot of teams today, Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. We were just clicking on all cylinders. As I tell them during the game, Im not looking at the score. I am looking at your defense, I am looking at turnovers, I am looking at your execution of things. I was made aware after the game of all the records. Youre happy for players who break records, and when you get a chance for them to stay in another minute to get another basket, you do it because its not always going to be that way.That rout came only a day after South Florida scored 129 points in a victory over St. Francis. The 129 points were the most scored this season. That lasted for less than a day. Jose Fernandezs squad had seven players in double figures in the 129-80 victory and made 48 field goals. They shot 66 percent from the field.Other things that happened this week:POLL MUSINGS: With most teams on break for exams, it was a relatively light week. No. 6 South Carolina won the only matchup between ranked teams, beating ninth-ranked UCLA 66-57. No. 10 Stanford lost at Tennessee.SHORTHANDED UMASS: UMass coach Tory Verdi has his team at .500 after 12 games this season. An impressive feat for the first-year coach, who has had only six healthy players for much of the season because of injuries and transfers. Despite having to play his small squad big minutes, the Minutewomen (6-6) are finding ways to win. The latest victory Sunday saw the team rally from a 23-point deficit against Holy Cross.It was something Ive never experienced before, Verdi said of the small roster. I had to take a step back, customize our practices. I had to be creative. We just had to focus on little things.Verdi took over the program after spending the last four seasons at Eastern Michigan. UMass has seven scholarship players, with only six that are healthy enough to play right now.Freshman Hailey Leidel is the nations second-leading rookie scorer behind UNC Greensboros Nadine Soliman. Verdi also has to rely on junior Maggie Mulligan, who is near the top in the country in double-doubles.Our best basketball is ahead of us, Verdi said. Its the cards were dealt with and has put us in a position later on the season to be more successful. Our freshmen had to step up and step on the floor right away and play big minutes for us. Weve been through the ringer if you will as of right now.ROAR LIONS ROAR: Columbia finished off the first part of its season 8-2, the first time the Lions have won eight of their first 10 games in program history. Columbia has a six-game winning streak for the first time since 1986-87 -- the schools inaugural Division I season.As an alum, Im very happy and very proud of all that we have accomplished so far, said first-year head coach Megan Griffith, who played for the Lions in the mid 2000s. However, there is still a lot of basketball to be played and we have a lot of things to work on.Columbia is led by junior Camille Zimmerman, who became the 11th player in school history to score 1,000 points when she reached that milestone in a win over LIU last Monday. The Lions are on break now for exams and the holidays.HOLDING THE FORT: Colorado State won its program-record 22nd consecutive game at home on Sunday night, beating Seattle 66-62 to best the mark set in 1998-99. The Rams current streak is the fourth-longest in the country, and theyve won 37 of their last 38 games at Moby Arena in Fort Collins, Colorado.---Follow Doug on Twitter at Minnesota Vikings Ade Aruna Jersey.S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA.

The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12.SEATTLE - At this point in the season when things should be coming together, there is a sense that the Houston Astros are falling apart. The Astros went down to their sixth straight defeat Tuesday night as Seattle Mariners right-hander Aaron Harang matched his career low in yielding just two hits in a complete-game 4-0 shutout victory. Harang (3-6) had a season-high 10 strikeouts - the 12th time in his career with 10-or-more, and no walks. It was his 15th career complete game and eighth shutout. "Its kind of frustrating right now," said starter Bud Norris, who worked seven innings, allowing five hits and three runs. "Weve been through a slump before, but this one is really kind of getting to us. "The guys have been going out there, playing hard and thats not the problem. ... We need to keep picking up both sides of the ball and play as a unit - a 25-man roster have to pick everyone up." While the offence struggled, so did the defence. Spotty defence played a role in both the Mariners first two runs. In the first, Endy Chavez opened with a double into the right-field corner and advanced to third when shortstop Ronny Cedeno missed the relay. After two outs, Chavez scored on Norris wild pitch, on a 1-2 pitch to Ibanez. Then in the second inning it happened again. Nick Franklin opened with a double to right and right-fielder Trevor Crowes throw to second was wide of Cedeno for another error. The Astros have committed a major league-high 49 errors. Franklin advanced to third and scored on Michael Saunders sacrifice fly to deep left. "They were just bad throws," said Crowe, who threw both balls in from right field. "The first one I had a chance. The second one you just have to slow down and make a better throw. "Its very unfortunate, the way Bud pitched tonight." Houston has committed a major league high 49 errors. The Mariners have eight shutouts this season, tied with Cleveland for the most in the American League. The Astros have been shut out a league-high seven times. "He attacked the zone," Astros manager Bo Porter said of Harang. "I dont think it wasnt anything we werent prepared for; it just seemed like he missed barrels and changed speeds when he needed to." "When a team is going through a bit of a funk and you have that happening as an offence, sometimes guys get frustrated and try to do too much," Crowe said.dddddddddddd "We may be going through a bit of that right now." Mariners manager Eric Wedge said it was the command of his fastball that made Harang so effective against the Astros. "He was fantastic," Wedge said. "When he commands his fastball and it rides like it was tonight, and hes able to leverage it downhill and climb when he wants to, hes real good. When he does that his secondary stuff is locked in, too, like it was tonight. Harang allowed a two-out infield single to deep short by J.D. Martinez in the second inning. He then retired 16 of the next 17 batters, as the only Astro to reach during that span was Brandon Barnes on a sixth-inning error. Martinez also collected the other hit, an inning-opening single to left in the seventh. He never advanced past first. Raul Ibanez hit his team-leading 13th home run - his second in as many nights - in the sixth inning. It was his 74th career home run at Safeco Field, the most by any player. Norris (5-6), who walked just one and struck out six, was not 100 per cent. He was sent home Monday because of cold-like symptoms and wasnt much improved by game time Tuesday. Porter said for Norris to step up under those conditions "was outstanding." "I appreciate the compliment but Im still pretty frustrated with the result unfortunately," Norris said. "We need to pick it up. "You have to go out there every fifth day. That is my job. I understand Im not going to feel 100 per cent every start, but to go out there and do battle for my team is what Ive always played the game to do." The Mariners added a run in the eighth off Wesley Wright. Chavez opened with a double and scored on Kyle Seagers one-out single to right. NOTES: The Mariners had the rare occurrence of having their 2012 first-round draft choice and their 2013 first-rounder on their home field before the game. C Mike Zunino, last years third overall selection, was called up before the game. He is the first position player to reach the majors. The clubs top pick this year, 12th overall, 3B D.J. Peterson, was invited in along with a half-dozen other draftees. ... Astros LF J.D. Martinez had a pair of singles in his three at-bats to give him at least one hit in 13 of his past 15 games. Hes hitting .322 during that span. ... Jose Altuves 11-game hit streak ended. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
