Result Game ball to The Story Up next
(2) Cincinnati 64,
(15) NC-Wilmington 47

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Cincinnati SG DerMarr Johnson : 13 pts, 7 rebs., 4 blocks

    Took a cue from injured Kenyon Martin on defense.

    The Bearcats' smothering defense more than compensated without Martin, holding Wilmington under 30 percent shooting. Cincinnati: Sunday vs. (7) Tulsa

    UNCW: Like country music? Then stay awhile

    (4) Tennessee 63,
    (13) Louisiana-Lafayette 58

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Tennessee PF C.J. Black : 14 pts., 10-10 FTs

    Hit shots when the game became a free-throw contest.

    Louisiana had the advantage much of the game, building three six-point leads only to see Tennessee battle back thanks to an advantage inside. Tennessee: Sunday vs. (5) Connecticut

    Louisiana: A summer of figuring out its name once and for all.

    (7) Tulsa 89,
    (10) UNLV 62

  • Box Score
  • Tulsa SF David Shelton : 21 pts., 7-16 FGs

    Golden Hurricane's top scorer in easy rout.

    Perhaps Dicky V was right about the Rebels, who put up little resistance and hit only 2 of 16 3-pointers. Tulsa: Sunday vs. (2) Cincinnati

    UNLV: Make peace with Mr. Vitale.

    (5) Connecticut 75,
    (12) Utah State 67

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • UConn PG Khalid El-Amin : 14 pts., 2-5 3-pt. FGs

    Led the Huskies admirably before late-game ankle sprain.

    The Huskies dominated the boards 37-24 and controlled the tempo to end the nation's longest winning streak. UConn: Sunday vs. (4) Tennessee

    Utah State: Start a new streak ... in November.

    (8) North Carolina 84,
    (9) Missouri 70

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • North Carolina C Brendan Haywood : 28 pts., 12 reb., 11-15 FGs

    Huge night for the sometimes underachieving 7-footer.

    Missouri lives and dies by the 3-pointer and Friday it died (8-of-31), while UNC cleaned the glass (55 to 30) thanks largely to Haywood. UNC: Sunday vs. Stanford

    Missouri: Buying Quin's hair products for next season.

    (3) Ohio State 87,
    (14) Appalachian St. 61

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Ohio State PG Scoonie Penn : 23 pts., 5-7 3-pt. FGs, 9-11 FGs

    Shot much better from outside than much of the regular season.

    The Buckeyes hit nearly everything they put up, including 60 percent from 3-point range, with Michael Redd (21 points) and George Reese (19 points) contributing. Ohio State: Sunday vs. Miami

    Appalachian State: Planning Buzz Peterson's farewell party.

    (6) Miami 75,
    (11) Arkansas 71

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Miami SG Johnny Hemsley : 20 pts., 5-10 3-pt. FGs

    Helped the Hurricanes start quick and build a cushion they would eventually need.

    Miami's defense created offensive problems for the Hogs, who had trouble setting up their press because of missed shots. Miami: Sunday vs. Ohio State

    Arkansas: Time for Nolan to have an interesting chat with athletic director Frank Broyles.

    (1) Stanford 84,
    (16) S.C. State 65

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Stanford SG Casey Jacobsen : 18 pts., 4-7 3-pt. FG

    Freshman led hot-shooting Cardinal, who hit a school-record 13 3-pointers.

    Stanford's inside-outside balance produced the expected mismatch. Stanford: Sunday vs. North Carolina.

    S.C. State: Finding tougher mascot after Stanford Tree won halftime skirmish.
