TOP 25

(1) Arizona 60 (21-0, 8-0) Stanford 57 (13-7, 4-4)

The Wildcats had a very off shooting night, 18 of 50, 36% overall, 18 of 29, 62% at the line, but were able to make shots when it mattered. Nick Johnson (16-5-4) Drilled a 3 with 49 seconds left for the game deciding basket. He scored Arizona's final 7. The Wildcat defense held the Cardinal to 4 points from the 12:34 to 1:21 mark of the second half. Even then, they had shots to tie. Josh Huestis, 13 points, 11 boards, missed a 3 with 13 seconds left before an Aaron Gordon miss kept the door open and Chasson Randle missed a 3 in the final seconds.

(2) Syracuse 67 (20-0, 7-0) Wake Forest 57 (14-7, 4-4)

The Orange got off to a very slow start with 11 points through the first 12 minutes. They turned it on from there and never trailed again, perpetually leading the game by 7. Tyler Ennis continued his great play with 18, 5 boards and 4 assists. DJ Fair had 16-8. Travis McKie and Devin Thomas both had 12 for Wake.

(6) Kansas 92 (16-4, 7-0) (16) Iowa State 81 (15-4, 3-4)

The Cyclones battled back from a couple of double digit holes. With 3:30 to go, Dustin Hogue was called for an intentional foul. Andrew Wiggins made a pair of free throws, tipped in a bucket on the ensuing possession and threw down a dunk off a Naadir Tharpe steal to put the game away. Wiggins had a career high 29 on 10 of 15 shooting, 4 of 6 from 3 and 5 of 6 from the line with 7 rebounds. Perry Ellis added 20 and 6. Joel Embiid had a 14-11 double double and Tharpe had a 12 point, 12 assist double double for KU. Georges Niang had 24, 5 assists, 4 boards and DeAndre Kane had 22 for Iowa State in the losing effort.

Northwestern 65 (11-11, 4-5) (14) Wisconsin 56 (17-4, 4-4)

The Badgers were just 15 of 57 from the field, 26.3%. They were 5 of 24 from 3. Northwestern hit 48% from the field on the back of a 30 point effort by Drew Crawford. Crawford hit 10 of 15 and 7 of 10 from the line. Sanjay Lumpkin had 12 assists and 10 rebounds for the Wildcats as well. Wisconsin has lost 4 of 5.

(19) St. Louis 77 (19-2, 6-0) Richmond 57 (14-7, 4-2)

The Billikens jumped up 6-0 and never looked back. They busted open a 21-7 lead halfway through the first half and went into the locker room up 21. The lead got as high as 26 in the second half. St. Louis shot 52% while holding Richmond to 31.7%. Jordair Jett had a 21 point, 10 rebound double double while Dwayne Evans added 15 and 10 boards of his own.

St Bonaventure 78 (13-8, 3-4) (21) Massachusetts 65 (17-3, 4-2)

UMass has dropped 2 of 3 after getting popped big time in the second half by the Bonnies. The Bonnies only hit 37% from the floor, but they got to the free throw line 34 times and made 30. UMass turned the ball over 14 times and went 8 of 15 at the stripe in the disappointing loss. 5 Bonnies scored in double digits, led by 14 form Charlon Kloof. Trey Davis had 18 for the Minutemen.

(22) Memphis 69 (16-4, 6-2) Central Florida 59 (9-9, 1-6)

This was a very competitive game on a very ugly court. The Knights gave Memphis all they could handle with a 56-54 Memphis lead at the under 8. A 10-4 run centered around 4 points by Geron Johnson (10-6 rebounds) and a Chris Crawford (12 pts) 3 gave Memphis enough of a cushion to pull out the victory. Joe Jackson continued his solid year with 17 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Isaiah Sykes did his best for UCF with a 24 point, 12 rebound, 5 assist effort. The Knights hit just 5 of 23 from long range.

Ohio State's struggles continued with a last second loss to DJ Newbill dropping a jumper with 1.9 seconds left in overtime.

He scored 4 of the 6 PSU overtime points, finishing with 25. The Buckeyes hit just 38% from the field as their offensive woes continue.
