FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — BJ Young led three players in double figures with 13 points as Arkansas opened quickly and never let up in a shocking 80-69 victory over No. 2 Florida on Tuesday night.
The win improves the Razorbacks (14-8, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) to 14-1 at home this season, and it snaps a 10-game winning streak for the Gators — who had ascended to the No. 2 spot in The AP Top 25 one day earlier.
Arkansas opened the game 15 of 20 from the field.
Michael Qualls and Marshawn Powell added 11 points each and all 11 players scored for the Razorbacks in their first win over a top 10 team since early in 2008-09.
Mike Rosario led Florida (18-3, 8-1) with 15 points, while Scottie Wilbekin had 14.
No. 3 MICHIGAN 76, No. 10 OHIO STATE 74, OT
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Tim Hardaway Jr. brought Michigan back with a relentless streak of 3-point shooting, then blocked a shot by Aaron Craft in the final seconds of overtime to give the Wolverines the win.
Hardaway finished with 23 points, including five straight 3-pointers in the second half. The Wolverines (21-2, 8-2 Big Ten) led by two points when Craft rushed the ball into the frontcourt after a missed Michigan free throw. He got all the way to the basket, but Hardaway was there to smother his last-ditch attempt to tie it.
Ohio State (17-5, 7-3) managed only two points in overtime.
Trey Burke missed a 3-pointer at the end of regulation that would have won it for Michigan — the Wolverines' only miss in nine second-half attempts from beyond the arc. Burke's 3 at the start of overtime made it 75-72, and then neither team scored until Craft's driving layup with just under a minute to play.
Deshaun Thomas scored 17 points for the Buckeyes.
No. 8 MIAMI 72, BOSTON COLLEGE 50
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Kenny Kadji scored 10 points during a span of four possessions to start a second-half surge and Miami remained unbeaten in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Reserve junior Rion Brown tied a career high with 22 points, and Kadji had 16 points and eight rebounds in 21 minutes for the Hurricanes, who went 11 for 22 from 3-point range. They held an ACC opponent to 50 points or less for the fourth time.
The Hurricanes (18-3, 9-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won 10 consecutive games and are 10-0 in their on-campus arena, winning each of the past three home games by at least 22 points. Nine victories in the ACC matches their highest total ever and they are the last unbeaten team in league play among the major conferences.
Olivier Hanlan scored 16 points for Boston College (10-12, 2-7), which lost to Miami for the second time in three weeks, and for the sixth straight time.
No. 13 KANSAS STATE 68, TEXAS TECH 59
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Rodney McGruder had 18 points and nine rebounds to lead Kansas State to its third straight victory.
Angel Rodriguez added 13 points and Thomas Gibson had 12 for the Wildcats (18-4, 7-2 Big 12).
McGruder was 6 of 11 from the field, while Rodriguez was 3 of 6 from 3-point range and was flawless in four free throws attempts.
Jordan Tolbert scored 19 points and Dejan Kravic added 12 for Texas Tech (9-11, 2-7), which finished with four turnovers, its fewest of the season.
Kansas State finished with 38 rebounds, 23 defensive, while Texas Tech had a total of 20.
For Texas Tech it was its seventh loss in the past eight games after opening Big 12 play with a win at TCU.
