JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are backing down on a proposal to penalize public universities for failing to meet certain funding and academic goals.

Instead, legislation considered by the Senate Education Committee recently would only allow performance standards to be used for year-to-year higher education funding increases.

If passed, the plan would be familiar to the state's four-year public universities. Governor Jay Nixon used the model informally when he gave them a $25 million increase for the current fiscal year.

Committee chairman and sponsoring Senator David Pearce of Warrensburg says universities should be financially rewarded for achieving performance goals. Under his plan, the universities would work with the Department of Higher Education to develop their own performance criteria.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — An abortion facility in Missouri would need to be inspected at least four times each year under legislation proposed in the state House.

The proposal is a priority for Missouri Right to Life, which called it a "strong bipartisan and pro-life" measure. The bill was filed this past week by Republican Kathy Swan of Cape Girardeau (juh-RAHR'-doh). It has more than 100 co-sponsors.

Under the bill, inspections could be conducted as frequently as the Department of Health and Senior Services deems necessary but would need to happen at least four times per fiscal year. No advanced notice would be required.

Planned Parenthood said the state already has authority to inspect as frequently as it chooses. The organization says the legislation is about making it more difficult to get an abortion.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Jabari Brown tied a career high with 24 points and Johnathan Williams III grabbed 14 rebounds to help Missouri defeat Alabama 68-47 on Saturday.
 
Missouri (14-3, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) entered the game having lost two of three, including a 78-75 setback at Vanderbilt on Thursday. The Tigers only led 31-30 at the break against the Crimson Tide, but opened the second half with a 14-4 run to create some breathing room.
 
After shooting 52.6 percent in its 80-61 win against Mississippi State on Wednesday, Alabama converted 29.2 percent of its shots from the field against Missouri and couldn't pull closer than 13 points in the final 10 minutes.
 
Shannon Hale scored 12 points and Retin Obasohan added 11 points for the Crimson Tide (8-9, 2-2), which is 0-7 away from home this season.
 
Missouri benefited from the return of Jordan Clarkson in the second half after he sat the final 12 minutes in the first. Averaging 18.8 points per game, Clarkson scored four points before the break but finished with 16.
 
The Tigers yielded only five 3-pointers — one game after allowing 12 to Vanderbilt — and limited Alabama to 25 percent shooting from behind the arc. Coach Frank Haith had lamented the Tigers' inability to make several layups against Vanderbilt, and the team missed several more against the Crimson Tide.
 
Missouri shot 42.6 percent overall, including 52.4 percent (11 for 21) in the second half.
 
For its part, Alabama wasn't much better around the basket. Trevor Releford, a senior guard from Kansas City, Mo., leads the Crimson Tide with 18.9 points per game but tied a season low with 10 points on four of 16 shooting.
 
After its initial run after halftime, Missouri gradually kept pulling away in front of a season-high attendance of 11,003. Before the game, fans could receive autographs from six members of the St. Louis Cardinals, headlined by NL championship series MVP Michael Wacha.
 
The Tigers hoped to put their troubles behind them by scoring the first seven points of the game, but Alabama scored 12 of the next 14. The teams then traded baskets until Williams' jumper put Missouri ahead 31-30 with 53 seconds remaining before halftime.

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Ryan Getzlaf scored his 25th goal, and rookie Frederik Andersen made 34 saves as the Anaheim Ducks got back to their winning ways with a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.
 
Anaheim, which had an eight-game winning streak snapped on Friday in Chicago, has won 19 of 21. The Ducks have won nine of their last 11 on the road and lead the NHL with 79 points. They are 20-0-2 at home.
 
Matt Beleskey and Cam Fowler also scored for the Ducks, who have a league-best 37 points on the road. Andersen (12-2) has won three straight.
 
Barret Jackman and Jaden Schwartz scored third-period goals for St. Louis, which has lost back-to-back games in regulation for just the second time this season.
 
Anaheim scored three times on its first 11 shots against Brian Elliott, who had a franchise-record, 13-game home winning streak snapped.
 
Getzlaf scored off a pass from Corey Perry 5:27 into the game. Getzlaf, who added an assist, has 14 points in his last nine games.
 
Beleskey squeezed a shot through Elliott early in the second period. Elliott made the initial save, but the puck trickled through his legs into the net.
 
Fowler tallied on the power play with a shot from the top of the circle to push the lead 3-0 midway through the second period.
 
Schwartz got the Blues to within 3-2 with a power-play goal at 14:31 of the third.
 
St. Louis is 1-7 against California teams this season.

Anaheim RW Teemu Selanne didn't play in the second of back-to-back games, as usual. The Ducks lost 4-2 in Chicago on Friday. ... RW Chris Stewart played in his 200th game with the Blues. ...
