LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki says he was "disgusted" to read about allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct by former team president Terdema Ussery in a Sports Illustrated report that described a hostile workplace for women.

Ussery was accused of making sexually suggestive remarks to several women. He spent 18 years with the team.

DALLAS (AP) - The NBA has fined outspoken Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban $600,000 for comments about tanking during a podcast with Hall of Famer Julius Erving. Commissioner Adam Silver said the fine was for "public statements detrimental to the NBA." The podcast with Erving was posted Sunday, the day the All-Star game was played in Los Angeles. Cuban said during the 30-minute interview that he met recently with some of his players and told them "losing is our best option."

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Mack Beggs is back and still wrestling against girls. The senior from Euless Trinity High School near Dallas is transgender and in the process of transitioning from female to male.

Starting Friday, he'll be defending his Class 6A 110-pound championship.

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Kendall Smith scored 21 points to help Oklahoma State stun No. 6 Texas Tech 79-71.

Zhaire Smith scored 18 points and Jarrett Culver added 15 for Tech. The Red Raiders lost their second straight after reeling off seven straight wins.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Barry Brown scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and Kansas State pulled away late to beat Texas 58-48. In what was a cold shooting affair for both teams, the last five minutes saw Kansas State close on a 16-4 run.
