(3) Florida 67 (22-2, 11-0) Tennessee 58 (15-9, 6-5)

Tennessee gave this one a great shot, they just couldn't get over the hump. Down two they missed a pair of shots and couldn't get a rebound. Down one on the next trip, they had a turnover. That turnover led to a Michael Frazier II three. After a miss, Scottie Wilbekin nailed a 3 to make it a 7 point game and remove the drama. Wilbekin scored 21 on 5 of 17, 1 of 6 from 3, 10-12 from the foul line, with 6 assists to 0 turnovers and 4 steals. Frazier II had 11 on 3-6 from 3. The Gators had 18 offensive rebounds and a 44% offensive rebounding percentage. Tennessee shot 45.8% but hit 5 of 14 from 3 and 9 of 17 from the line along with 15 turnovers. Jarnell Stokes posted 20 and 11 with 7 of 11 from the field, 6 of 10 form the line. Jordan McRae had 17 on 6 of 16 shooting.

Wyoming 68 (15-9, 6-5) (5) San Diego State 62 (21-2, 10-1)

The upset of the night happened in the nightcap. Wyoming shot the ball extraordinarily well at 58% while holding the Aztecs to 38%. The Aztecs were 5 of 21 from 3 and 13 of 22 at the line. Wyoming hit 19 of 26 at the stripe. Even then, it was a 4 point game with 58 seconds to go. That's when a wild inbound pass, after what looked like 5 seconds, ended up with Nathan Sobey (9-4-4)slamming home a dunk from Riley Grabau. That sealed San Diego State's first loss since November 14.

Riley Grabau had 17 on 5 of 9, 3 of 6, 4 of 4. Larry Nance Jr had 14 on 5 of 8 and 4-6 at the line with 6 boards and 3 blocks. Dwayne Polee II had 15 on 3 of 6 from 3 for SDSU. Xavier Thames finished with 13 on 3 of 16, 0 of 8, 7-9 at the line.

(4) Wichita State 78 (26-0, 13-0) Southern Illinois

Southern Illinois was hanging tough for most of the game and held a 43-41 lead early in the second half. That went away in a 16-5 run that lasted 4 minutes. Every the Salukis got the lead to 4 or 5, a WSU three would answer. The lead didn't get out of control until the end when a 12-3 run was dropped after SIU cut the score to 64-61. Five Shockers finished in double figures. Ron Baker led the way with 19 on 7 of 12, 3 of 8 from 3, 2 of 2 at the line, and 5 assists. Cleanthony Early scored 18 thanks to 11-12 at the stripe. Anthony Beane did all he could for SIU as he scored 25 on 10 of 19, 2 of 5, 3 of 4, with 4 steals.

(15) Michigan (18-6, 10-2) (22) Ohio State 60 (19-6, 6-6)

The Buckeyes got off to a solid start up 26-16. That's about as great as things would get. Michigan cut the lead to 4 at halftime. After OSU started the second with a little run, the Wolverines went on the attack. A 14-4 run over 4 minutes gave the Wolverines a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

That's not to say it wasn't close. With 3 minutes left, Michigan was up 4. That's when Glenn Robinson III hit a 3, Aaron Craft airballed a 3 and Derrick Walton Jr was fouled attempting a 3. Walton made all of them. Walton had 13 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists to 1 turnover. Nik Stauskas led Michigan with 15 on 4-9, 3-6 from 3, 4-5 at the line. Ohio State was a dreadful 3 of 20 from 3. LaQuinton Ross scored 24 on 8 of 17, 8-11 at the line, with 7 boards. Lenzelle Smith Jr had 13 and every OSU 3 pointer on 9 attempts.

(19) Texas 87 (19-5, 8-3) Oklahoma State 68 (16-8, 4-7)

This didn't start off terribly for the Cowboys. They trailed 9-7. Then Texas dropped an extended 25-7 run on them. The lead in the first half got as high as 25. Texas never got the lead over 30 but they got it close a couple of times. Texas games lately have been over very early. The Longhorns shot 47%, hit 11 of 23 from 3 and 24-31 at the line. Javan Felix had 27 on 9 of 14, 6 of 8 from 3. Cameron Ridley had 12 and 13 and Isaiah Taylor 16 and 5 assists. Le'Bryan Nash finished with 23 for OSU on 9 of 17, 5 of 6 at the line and 6 boards. Markel Brown had 18 on 4 of 14 shooting, 9-11 at the stripe.

ACC

Notre Dame 68 (13-12, 4-8) Clemson 64 (15-8, 6-5) – 2 OT

This game went to OT when Eric Atkins turned the ball over with 24 seconds to go and compounded the error by fouling Rod Hall with 4 seconds left. Hall had a chance to win but only made 1 of 2. That would be Clemson's first blown opportunity. In OT, ND had a 4 point lead with 24 seconds left. Landry Nnoko made a layup, then stole the ball from Atkins on a horrible inbound pass to draw a foul. Nnoko hit them both for his only 4 points of the game. After another Atkins turnover, Clemson ran a great play that got KJ McDaniels wide open at the top of the key for 3. He missed.

Clemson would not blow a third chance because Steve Vasturia (11 pts) drilled a couple of threes and Pat Connaughton (13-7 asts) hit a pair of foul shots to ice. Eric Atkins had 16 points, 6 assists to 4 turnovers, 3 boards and 3 steals. Zach Auguste had 14-12. KJ McDaniels went off for 30 on 13 of 24 shooting with 14 boards, 5 blocks, 3 assists and 2 steals. He gets the game ball of the night.

NC State 82 (16-8, 6-5) Wake Forest 67 (14-10, 4-7)

Wake Forest has a history of not winning ACC road games. They lived up to it tonight because TJ Warren went the hell off for 34 on 15 of 26 and 10 boards. Ralston Turner added 16 on 5 of 8. Clemson shot 52.5%. Wake shot 51%. But that wasn't their problem. Going 14 of 31 at the foul line was their problem. So were 14 turnovers. And not guarding Warren. Codi Miller-McIntyre had a team best 15 for Wake.

SEC

Alabama 67 (10-14, 4-7) Ole Miss 64 (16-8, 7-4)

Trevor Releford nailed a 3 with under a second to go for the win. Bama was up 5 with a minute left but gave up a 4 point possession when Aaron Jones hit 1 of 2 at the line and Marshall Henderson hit a 3 off the rebound. Releford had a hell of a night with 26 points on 8 of 16, 2 of 3, 8 of 9, with 5 boards and 3 assists. Nick Jacobs had 18 on 9-13 and 8 boards for the Tide. Marshall Henderson led Ole Miss with 14, but on 4 of 14 from 3.

BIG EAST

Xavier 64 (17-7, 7-4) Butler 50 (12-12, 2-10)

the Musketeers beat the hell out of Butler. Xavier shot 53% and assisted on 18 of 27 field goals. Dee Davis had 9. Semaj Christon scored a game high 15 on 6 of 11. Isaiah Philmore had 10. Butler shot just 34% and 7 of 25 from deep. It's not the Bulldogs year.

Marquette 77 (14-10, 6-5) Seton Hall 66 (13-11, 4-7)

The Golden Eagles won back to back games for the first time since December. Even though they were outshot by Seton Hall 53.3% to 43%, Marquette forced 17 turnovers and hit 30 of 34 at the line. Jamil Wilson had a career night with 25 points on 8 of 14, 4 of 5, 5 of 5, with 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and a block. Davante Gardner had 16 thanks to 10-11 at the stripe. Brian Oliver of Seton Hall went 5-7 from 3 for a team high 15 points.

MOUNTAIN WEST

Utah State 71 (15-9, 5-7) Colorado State 62 (14-22, 5-7)

There are not a lot of games so I should write about all of them. Probably didn't need to type that sentence. Utah State hit 49%, 16-17 at the line, in their nice win. Preston Medlin scored 18 points with 5 assists. Spencer Butterfield posted 14 and 8. Jarred Shaw had 10 boards. All of CSU's scoring was done by Jon Octeus, 22, and Daniel Bejarano, 21, it seemed. They made 13 field goals. The rest of the team made 4. Colorado State slashed 29.8% / 16.7%. They did hit 25 of 28 at the foul line, so props I guess.

BIG SOUTH

Gardner-Webb 68 (14-12, 7-4) Liberty 52 (9-17, 3-8)

The Bulldogs were runnin' to the tune of 45% shooting. They hit 7 of 20 from 3. When they weren't missing, they picked up 12 offensive rebounds. Jerome Hill led a balanced effort with 13 points and 9 boards. Tomasz Gielo scored 11 for Liberty.
