No. 9 WISCONSIN 76, PURDUE 70
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Frank Kaminsky scored 22 points, Traevon Jackson added 14 and Wisconsin finished off its home schedule with a victory over Purdue.
Kaminsky, a 7-footer who can shoot from the perimeter, went 4 of 5 from 3-point range for the Badgers (25-5, 12-5 Big Ten), who won their eighth straight thanks in large part to shooting 48 percent from the field in the first half.
Ronnie Johnson had 15 points for the Boilermakers (15-15, 5-12), who lost their fifth straight and fell into sole possession of last place in the conference.
Wisconsin attacked the lane early before starting to hit from the perimeter. The Badgers had a 16-point lead whittled to seven with 5 minutes left but were otherwise in firm control.
No. 10 SAN DIEGO STATE 73, UNLV 64
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Xavier Thames scored 19 points to lead San Diego State to a win over UNLV.
San Diego State (26-3, 15-2 Mountain West) closed the game on a 13-2 run over the last final 3:04 to seal its 26th victory of the season, matching the second-highest single-season total in school history. The Aztecs also won a school-record 15th conference game of the season, breaking the previous mark of 14, set in 2010-11.
Thames was one of four Aztecs scoring in double figures, as Matt Shrigley added 14 and Winston Shepard and Dwayne Polee II each had 13.
Khem Birch had 16 points and 10 rebounds to lead UNLV (19-11, 10-7). Kevin Olekaibe added 10 for the Runnin’ Rebels.
No. 11 LOUISVILLE 84, No. 18 SMU 71
DALLAS (AP) — Russ Smith scored 22 of his 26 points after halftime, including six 3-pointers, and Louisville became the first opponent to win in SMU’s renovated home.
Smith hit three straight 3s right after his alley-oop pass on the go-ahead dunk by Montrezl Harrell midway through the second half for the American Athletic Conference-leading and defending national champion Cardinals (25-5, 14-3 AAC).
Rick Pitino won the matchup of Hall of Fame coaches, as SMU and Larry Brown lost for the first time in 10 games since moving back into their campus home in January.Next Page >
