Here is the latest Michigan sports news from The Associated Press

DETROIT (AP) — Tyler Herro had 31 points and eight rebounds as the Miami Heat rallied to beat the Detroit Pistons 100-92. Miami outscored the Pistons 27-6 in the first 8:17 of the fourth quarter to turn a nine-point deficit into a 12-point lead. Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo each added 15 points and nine rebounds for the Heat, who won for the fifth time in six games. Kyle Lowry had 15 points, eight assists and six rebounds. Jerami Grant had 21 points and seven rebounds for Detroit, which went 1-4 on its homestand. 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — This year’s edition of The Game could come down to how well No. 6 Michigan can slow down the explosive offense of No. 2 Ohio State. The Wolverines are in the top 10 in several defensive categories, limiting opponents to just over 300 yards per game. Quarterback C.J. Stroud has the Buckeyes roaring. They’re averaging 560 yards per game. The game on Saturday in Ann Arbor has huge implications. The winner moves on to the Big Ten championship game and stays in contention for the College Football Playoff.

UNDATED (AP) — The best college football rivalries can change over time. Go back 25 or 30 years and Miami-Florida State probably would have been near the top of most lists. Some rivalries have largely gone away, including Nebraska-Oklahoma and Texas-Texas A&M. The Associated Press asked a panel of sports writers and broadcasters to rank the best rivalries in college football. Four longstanding series separated themselves from the rest, topped by Alabama-Auburn, Michigan-Ohio State and Army-Navy. 

UNDATED (AP) — Suspending LeBron James for a game shows that the NBA is tired of the on-court incidents that have already grabbed headlines twice this season. James was suspended for the Los Angeles Lakers’ game at the New York Knicks on Tuesday because of his role in a dustup in Detroit on Sunday night. It comes a couple weeks after reigning MVP Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets got into it with Miami forward Markieff Morris. And with rematches of both of those games looming the NBA wanted to send a serious message.

UNDATED (AP) — Big Ten coaches are enjoying stability at a time when programs in other conferences aren’t even bothering to wait until the end of the season to make changes. The Big Ten is the only Power Five conference that hasn’t had at least one head coaching change since the start of the season. That follows an offseason in which Illinois was the lone Big Ten school to fire a coach. Only three of the 14 Big Ten coaches are in their first or second season on the job.
