. Its unclear how long the Warriors defensive stopper
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. 2 Florida State. The Heisman Trophy candidate showed no effects from a tumultuous week, completing 19-of-21 passes for 277 yards and two touchdowns as the Seminoles rolled Syracuse 59-3 on Saturday. News broke Wednesday that Winston was under investigation for an alleged sexual assault that took place Dec. 7, 2012. Attention moved away from his Heisman Trophy campaign to the many unanswered questions surrounding an investigation that is nearly a year old. Any questions about whether the off-field issue would impact Florida States game were answered immediately. Florida State (10-0, 8-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 28-0 in the first quarter. Syracuse (5-5, 3-3) was held scoreless until late in the fourth quarter. Florida State outgained the Orange 523-427. "Its the same thing every single week," Winston said. "We prepare ourselves the same way every single week. One thing about Florida State, were a big family. So we stay inside the family. "Weve got the same plan every week. We want to be elite. We want to be great. And just like we had the 1993 championship team come down. We want to be just like those guys. We want to just keep everything rolling the right way." The Seminoles are second in the BCS standings and are likely three victories away -- they play Idaho, Florida and the ACC championship game in the next three weeks -- from locking up a spot in the BCS championship game. It seems only a problem with Winston can get in Florida States way. If he were to be changed with a felony, school rules would require he not be allowed to play. With him, and considering the upcoming competition, the Seminoles have been unstoppable. The Seminoles scored 28 points before the Orange recorded 28 yards of total offence -- and Winston was the star. The quarterback completed his first 11 attempts and looked completely comfortable. Winston controlled the game with his arm, but also sprinted nearly 40 yards downfield to throw the final block that sprung Kermit Whitfield on a 74-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. "I thought he played exceptionally well," Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said about Winston. "His mind was really in the game." Florida State was up 21-0 when Winston threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Rashad Greene with 40 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Syracuse cornerback Julian Whigham was injured on the play, taken off the field on a stretcher and immediately loaded into an ambulance late in the first quarter. He was taken to the hospital. Orange coach Scott Shafer said Whigham was OK in the hospital with an abdominal injury and would remain overnight. Syracuse also lost running back Prince-Tyson Gulley to a lower-body injury and receiver Jarrod West left with an upper-body injury. Winston lobbed a 6-yard touchdown pass to 6-foot-5 receiver Kelvin Benjamin to go up 35-0 with 11:52 left in the second quarter. Winstons game ended at halftime and Florida State holding a 38-0 lead. Syracuse clearly made the decision to defend the deep ball and worry less about underneath routes. Winston took the easy, open throws and didnt force the ball into tight spots. Sean Maguire replaced Winston with second-stringer Jacob Coker out for the season after having knee surgery this week. The redshirt freshman was 3-of-5 for 21 yards with a touchdown and an interception. The Florida State defence did dominate and showed why its the No. 4 scoring defence in the FBS. The unit allowed 68 yards on 30 plays in the first half while the Seminoles offence had 374 yards on 32 plays. "Just coming out and throwing the first punch, we were trying to create a dominant kind of chemistry among the defence," Florida State nose guard Timmy Jernigan said. "Just coming out and being dominant and being the most physical team." The Orange managed just four first downs in the first half while punting five times. "This is horrible," Shafer said. "I hate it. We wont sleep for a couple of nights. I know I wont. You hate losing. God, I hate losing but you bounce back and figure out how to teach the kids because thats what we are. Were teachers." Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt completed 10-of-18 passes for 75 yards. Backup Drew Allen entered the game in the third quarter and completed 5-of-9 passes for 29 yards with an interception. "Theyre a great team," Hunt said. "We lost to a better team, basically. It would be more of a bruised ego if we lost to a team that were better than. But we lost to a better team - you accept it, you move on. We have two more games and we want to go 2-0."

Rose finished with 30 points, and his final basket overshadowed a night when he committed a career-high 11 turnovers and made just 13 of 33 shots.Thompson misfired a wide-open runner off the glass as time expired.We feel comfortable with Derrick taking responsibility in those moments, Bulls big man Pau Gasol said. He definitely doesnt hide and hes very aggressive.The Warriors forced overtime on Draymond Greens tying tip-in with 1.4 seconds left and looked ready to recreate their unbeatable spark in front of a sellout crowd of 19,596.

A lot of that had to do with their defence, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.Indeed, Tom Thibodeaus team clamped down after the Warriors started 9 for 20 from 3-point range. Golden State missed all 13 attempts from beyond the arc after the first half.Stephen Curry still put the Warriors in position to win, capping a 7-0 spurt to start the fourth quarter with one of his biggest highlights: faking a behind-the-back pass with his left hand and throwing a no-look toss over his right shoulder to Lee for a dunk that put the Warriors up 88-79.dddddddddddd.But just as he did throughout the night, Rose brought the Bulls back — inspiring a louder-than-usual visiting crowd sprinkled around the arena to a light roar each time.Chicago capped its closing burst by trapping Curry in the backcourt and forcing him into an errant pass. Rose came up with the ball and fed Kirk Hinrich, whose 3-pointer put the Bulls up 107-105 with 15.8 seconds remaining.Andre Iguodala missed a 3 after a timeout, but Green pushed Noah aside for the tying tip-in.

Rose dribbled out the shot clock, then hit the jumper over Thompson to put the Bulls up for good.After a timeout, Nikola Mirotic fouled Iguodala behind the basket as he jumped. Officials ruled Iguodala was not in the act of shooting, giving Golden State the ball on the side, while Kerr called on them to award Iguodala two free throws.Thompson still managed to break free on the inbounds pass, but he missed the running bank shot to finish off Golden States loss.SICK LEAVEKerr said Bogut came up to him just before tipoff to tell him he was too sick to play.
