DALLAS (AP) — Missouri won a see-saw Cotton Bowl by outlasting Oklahoma State 41-31 for Tigers' coach Gary Pinkel's 102nd victory at Missouri, a school record. Henry Josey ran for 92 yards and three touchdowns, the last a 16-yarder with 3:08 left, to seal it for the Tigers.

ATLANTA (AP) — Andre Iguodala (ihg-ah-DAH'-lah) drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Golden State Warriors a 101-100 victory in Atlanta. Iguodala capped a 25-9, game-ending run that sent the Warriors to their eighth straight victory, the NBA's longest current winning streak. David Lee dropped in 23 points in the Warriors' fifth straight road win. Stephen (STEH'-fehn) Curry added 22 points and nine assists

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Sidney Crosby increased his league-leading point total to 62 by providing a goal and two assists in Pittsburgh's 5-2 win against the New York Rangers. Chris Kunitz (KOO'-nihts) and Jussi Jokinen (YOO'-see YOH'-kih-nehn) each scored twice for the Penguins, who won for the 15th time in their last 18 games and stretched their lead in the Eastern Conference to five points over Boston.

UNDATED (AP) — Patrick Sharp notched his second hat trick in eight days as the Chicago Blackhawks downed the Devils 5-3 in New Jersey. It was a 1-1 game until Brandon Saad (sahd), Sharp and Marian Hossa (HOH'-sah) scored during a 4:04 span early in the third period. Duncan Keith had three assists in the final period to help the NHL's Western Conference leaders improve to 14-5-3 on the road this season.
