TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) Indiana State's Brenton Scott wanted to show everyone that he's just as good as his twin brother.

And just as capable of leading his team to a big upset.

Scott broke a tie by making the first of two free throws with 0.8 seconds left and finished with 25 points Wednesday night as the Sycamores snapped a nine-game losing streak against ranked teams with a 72-71 upset over No. 16 Butler.


Buffs deal No. 13 Xavier another defeat

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Colorado coach Tad Boyle made an innocent comment after a sluggish performance at the start the season: Play like that again and Xavier would beat the Buffaloes by 20.

His players received the message. They made sure it didn't go down like that.


Jackson helps No. 7 UNC get by Davidson

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Justin Jackson buried shot after shot from behind the arc in the best performance of his career for No. 7 North Carolina. Coach Roy Williams didn't have much to feel good about otherwise.

Jackson matched his career high with 27 points and hit a career-best seven 3-pointers to help the Tar Heels beat Davidson 83-74 on Wednesday night, though they struggled both to slow down high-scoring Wildcats guard Jack Gibbs and find much of a rhythm with top point guard Joel Berry II sidelined by a sprained left ankle.


No. 6 Kentucky regroups, blows out Valpo

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky's mistake-filled start quickly gave way to the energetic effort the sixth-ranked Wildcats acknowledged was missing against UCLA. And their intensity soon put things out of reach for Valparaiso.

Bam Adebayo scored 16 points, Malik Monk added 15 and scored 21 straight points in a first-half run to beat the Crusaders 87-63 on Wednesday night.


No. 10 Creighton tops Nebraska. now 9-0

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Creighton's 90-points-a-game offense didn't show up until late against Nebraska.

No problem. The 10th-ranked Bluejays were still more than good enough to beat their in-state rival again.


Washington no match for No. 8 Gonzaga

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Gonzaga's Nigel Williams-Goss knew that playing against his old teammates from Washington would be difficult.

Williams-Goss scored 23 points as No. 8 Gonzaga beat poor-shooting Washington 98-71 on Wednesday night in a resumption of their cross-state rivalry.


Big men lead No. 11 Louisville over SIU

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville's frontcourt led the way over an outmatched opponent.

Mangok Mathiang scored 15 points to help No. 11 Louisville to a 74-51 victory over Southern Illinois on Wednesday night.


No. 15 Mountaineers force 34 TOs in rout

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) Esa Ahmad and No. 15 West Virginia made sure there was no drop off in performance against an outmanned opponent after an emotional road win at Virginia.

The Mountaineers were solid again on defense and Ahmad led another balanced scoring attack with 14 points as West Virginia stomped Western Carolina 90-37 on Wednesday night.


Amaker now winningest coach at Harvard

BOSTON (AP) Harvard's Tommy Amaker still feels the influence that Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski provided. It's helped lead him through a successful coaching career.

Amaker became the winningest coach in Harvard history on Wednesday night when Chris Lewis scored a season-high 22 points and Seth Towns had 18 to lead the Crimson to a 74-66 road victory over local rival Boston College.


No. 17 Wisconsin too much for Idaho St.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Coming off a difficult early season stretch, playing in front of a tepid home crowd and with final exams looming, the conditions were almost in place for No. 17 Wisconsin to suffer a letdown Wednesday night.

Only one thing was missing: a worthy opponent.
