BLACKHAWKS-BLUE JACKETS

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Jack Johnson scored the winner in the ninth round of a shootout and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 39 shots in regulation and eight in the tiebreaker to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Johnson faked a forehand and then jammed in a backhand before Bobrovsky clinched the win by blocking Bryan Bickell's low attempt.

It was the sixth game in a row to go past regulation for the Blue Jackets, who have a nine-game point streak (8-0-1).

Jack Skille and Kevin Connauton scored goals for Columbus. Patrick Sharp and Ben Smith tallied for the Blackhawks, and Corey Crawford made 17 saves.

The Blue Jackets ended a 13-game losing streak (0-10-3) to the Blackhawks.

BROWNS-GIPSON

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Browns have placed safety Tashaun Gipson on injured reserve with a knee injury he sustained four weeks ago.

Gipson was having a Pro Bowl-caliber season, leading the NFL with six interceptions when he hurt his knee on Nov. 23. He had hoped to return, but the Browns put him on IR before traveling to Carolina on Saturday.

Gipson is still tied for the league lead in interceptions.

The 24-year-old finished with 52 tackles in 11 starts and had a 62-yard interceptions return for a touchdown. Gipson led the Browns with five interceptions last season.

Cleveland's defensive secondary has been ravaged by injuries. Star cornerback Joe Haden (shoulder) is questionable for the Panthers while cornerback K'Waun Williams (hamstring) is out.

To take Gipson's roster spot, the Browns promoted linebacker Scott Solomon from the practice squad.

OHIO ST-NORTH CAROLINA

CHICAGO (AP) -- Brice Johnson had 18 points on 8-for-10 shooting and nine rebounds, and No. 24 North Carolina used its stout defense to hold off No. 12 Ohio State for an 82-74 victory Saturday.

Marcus Paige added 16 points for the Tar Heels (8-3), and Kennedy Meeks finished with eight points, 13 rebounds and two blocked shots. Meeks and Johnson led North Carolina to a 53-40 rebounding advantage.

Marc Loving made five 3-pointers and scored 19 points for Ohio State (9-2), which had won four in a row. Sam Thompson scored 17, and D'Angelo Russell had 11 points and eight rebounds.

But the Buckeyes shot 35 percent. They were averaging 84.2 points and shooting 53.7 percent coming into the day.

VCU-CINCINNATI

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Melvin Johnson scored 18 points with four of Virginia Commonwealth's 15 3-pointers on Saturday in a 68-47 win over Cincinnati, which was playing without coach Mick Cronin.

The Bearcats (7-3) were dealing with the unexpected absence of their coach, who was diagnosed with an aneurysm that was revealed earlier in the day. A school release did not say where the aneurysm was in the 43-year old Cronin, who is in his ninth season with the team. Associate head coach Larry Davis will run the team in Cronin's absence.

VCU (8-3) held Cincinnati to 33 percent shooting and forced 15 turnovers. The Rams were 15 of 31 from 3-point range.

Cincinnati, which was led by Octavius Ellis' 12 points, had won its last 16 regular-season nonconference home games.

The Rams led 20-9 midway through the first half on the strength of six 3-pointers, two each by Terry Larrier and Jordan Burgess. The Rams had two more 3s in the first half to build a 34-21 lead and then scored the first seven points of the second half to go up by 20.
