MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Barry Brown missed a potential game-winner at Kansas last weekend, an off-balance shot he was never supposed to take, and spent the next couple days ruing the missed opportunity.

Kansas State's gritty junior guard made up for it Tuesday night.

Brown poured in 24 points, locked down defensively on Oklahoma star Trae Young, and ultimately led the plucky, defensive-minded Wildcats to an 87-69 upset of the fourth-ranked Sooners.


Down 14, Gamecocks rally past Kentucky

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Kentucky coach John Calipari thought his freshmen looked like freshmen for the first time all season. South Carolina's Chris Silva continued to look like a major force in the Southeastern Conference who led the Gamecocks' dramatic second-half comeback against the Wildcats.

Silva tied his career high he set earlier this month with 27 points as South Carolina (12-6, 3-3 SEC) rallied from 14 points down in the second half to top No. 18 Kentucky 76-68 on Tuesday night.


No. 3 Purdue rips Wisconsin, run hits 14

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) No. 3 Purdue keeps it simple.

Move the ball, continue scrapping and share the credit as the wins pile up. Right now, nobody's executing the plan better than the Boilermakers who proved it again Tuesday night.


No. 15 UNC holds off No. 20 Clemson

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Cameron Johnson never let himself fret about the outside shot that had seemingly abandoned him in his brief North Carolina career. It's a big reason why the 15th-ranked Tar Heels still have their unblemished all-time home record against Clemson.

The Pittsburgh graduate transfer broke loose for a season-high 21 points, helping UNC hold off the 20th-ranked Tigers 87-79 on Tuesday night to improve to 59-0 at home in the series.


No. 12 Cincy tops UCF 49-38, streak at 9

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Gary Clark has seen the University of Central Florida's 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall for three seasons and he's still in awe.

Clark, a 6-8 senior at Cincinnati, scored 17 points and pulled down 15 rebounds in helping the Bearcats (16-2, 5-0) to an ugly, but effective 49-38 victory over Fall and the Knights (12-6, 3-3). Jacob Evans added 10 points for the Bearcats, who won their ninth game in a row.


Louisville beats Notre Dame 82-78 in 2OT

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Louisville's homegrown upper classmen proved too grown for Notre Dame in a double overtime tug-of-war Tuesday night.

Junior Ray Spalding scored a career-high 23 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, while senior and fellow Louisville native Quentin Snider matched a career high with 22 points as the Cardinals pulled out an 82-78 win over the Irish to move into sole possession of second place in the Atlantic Coast Conference.


Davis helps Texas A&M edge Ole Miss

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy offered up a concise invocation when Mississippi's Breein Tyree tossed up a 3-point attempt from the left of the top of the key late Tuesday night in Reed Arena.

"I was praying that it would bounce out," Kennedy said. "And God blessed us with the right bounce."


Syracuse downs Pitt to snap 4-game skid

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Frank Howard saw to it that Syracuse didn't make history Tuesday.

The Orange had never lost five games in a row in the 42-year tenure of Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim, but coming off a disheartening double-overtime loss at No. 23 Florida State, that prospect loomed - even against a Pittsburgh team that entered the Carrier Dome winless in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The last time Syracuse lost five games in a row came during the 1968-69 season.


Maten's late hoop gets Georgia by LSU

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Yante Maten's field goal in the lane with five seconds remaining gave Georgia a 61-60 Southeastern Conference victory against LSU on Tuesday night.

The Tigers (11-6, 2-3) pulled ahead 60-59 on a basket by Duop Reath with 39 seconds left, and the game-winning field goal followed an offensive rebound by Juwan Parker with 23 seconds to play.


Buffalo wins 6th in row, now 5-0 in MAC

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Nick Perkins matched his season-high with 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting and added six rebounds to lead Buffalo past Northern Illinois 95-67 on Tuesday night for its sixth straight victory.

CJ Massinburg scored 16, Jayvon Graves added 12 points and six boards and Jeremy Harris pitched in with 11 points and four assists for the Bulls (13-5, 5-0 Mid-American Conference). Buffalo is 5-0 in conference play for the first time since the 1997-98 season when it was a member of the defunct Mid-Continent Conference. The Bulls beat the Huskies for a 13th straight time and have won five straight games by double digits, something they hadn't done since the 2003-04 season.
