Sports Minute: Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Martinas Geben hit two free throws with 2.3 seconds left and No. 13 Notre Dame rallied from a 16-point deficit to beat No. 6 Wichita State 67-66 in the Maui Invitational championship game. Notre Dame trailed most of the night, but clawed its way back, by slowing the high-scoring Shockers and working the ball inside on offense.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska meets Iowa on Friday in what could be Mike Riley's last game as the Cornhuskers' coach. The Huskers have lost nine of their last 13 games. The poor stretch started with last year's 40-10 loss at Iowa. The Hawkeyes have lost two straight since upsetting Ohio State. They've scored more than 19 points in just two of their eight Big Ten games. They generated a combined 324 yards against Wisconsin and Purdue the last two weeks.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Alex Smith's performance under center sent the Chiefs to a 5-0 start. His performance is also a big reason why they've lost four of their past five. But the veteran quarterback is optimistic Kansas City can turn things around again, and perhaps live up to the Super Bowl hopes that fans had during the team's hot start.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Chiefs have signed veteran cornerback Darrelle Revis in their latest attempt to shore up their porous defensive backfield, though it is unclear when he'll be ready to play. The Chiefs announced the signing four days before they face the Buffalo Bills. Revis has been a free agent since playing for the Jets last season.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Missouri coach Barry Odom was the one feeling as much pressure as anyone else in the Southeastern Conference a month ago. These days, Odom is at the forefront of one of the hottest teams in the league _ with the Tigers winners of five straight games entering their regular season finale at Arkansas on Friday.

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) - Spencer Haldeman scored 15 points to help Northern Iowa beat SMU 61-58 in Wednesday's final first-round game at the Battle 4 Atlantis. The Panthers (4-1) shot 48 percent and controlled the glass in their fourth straight win since a season-opening loss to reigning national champion North Carolina. Jarrey Foster scored 19 points to lead the Mustangs (4-1).

ESTERO, Fla. (AP) - Max Rothschild had 16 points to lead five Pennsylvania players in double figures and the Quakers beat Missouri-Kansas City 68-65 in the third-place game of the Gulf Coast Showcase. Rothschild made 6 of 7 from the field and grabbed seven rebounds.

SAINT LOUIS, Mo. (AP) - Kameron Chatman drove in from the wing and flicked a jump shot past two defenders with two seconds on the clock and Detroit-Mercy battled past Saint Louis 72-70. Saint Louis tried a heave from three-quarter court that sailed wide as time expired. The game-winner came in a contest where the teams swapped the lead seven times, had nine ties and neither led by more than eight. There were six lead changes and three ties in the final five minutes.
