NO. 21 MARQUETTE 106, CREIGHTON 104
OMAHA, Neb. — Markus Howard scored 14 of his career-high 53 points in overtime after Sam Hauser's deep 3-pointer at the end of regulation tied the game, and No. 21 Marquette beat Creighton 106-104 on Wednesday night.
Howard's dazzling offensive performance set a Marquette record and broke his own record for points in a Big East game. His 53 points were the most by a player in a game matching Division I opponents this season, one behind the 54 Furman's Jordan Lyons had against D-II North Greenville. Howard had 52 points against Providence last season. It was also the highest-scoring performance ever by a Creighton opponent.
Marquette never led until Howard scored on his team's first possession of overtime. Marquette repeatedly cut into Creighton leads only to see the Bluejays pull ahead again.
But with the Golden Eagles within 85-82 and 0.8 seconds on the clock, Creighton's long inbound pass touched nobody and rolled out of bounds on the other end.
That gave Marquette possession under its basket. Hauser caught the inbound on the left wing and launched a shot that left his fingertips just before the clock hit zeroes. The 3-pointer was ruled good immediately, and the call was upheld after a long video review.
Marquette (13-3, 2-1 Big East) won for the first time in four road games. Creighton (10-6, 1-2) dropped its second straight.
Sam Hauser and Joey Hauser added 13 points apiece for the Eagles, who made 16 of 28 3-pointers.
Most of those 3s were by Howard, who was unstoppable despite Davion Mintz's best efforts to guard him.
Howard was 10 for 14 on 3s and 13 for 15 from the free-throw line.
Ty-Shon Alexander had 23 points, Mintz scored 21 and Martin Krampelj had 19 for the Bluejays.
NO. 4 VIRGINIA 83, BOSTON COLLEGE 56
BOSTON — Mamadi Diakite matched his career high with 18 points, De'Andre Hunter also scored 18 and Virginia topped Boston College to stay unbeaten.
Ty Jerome added 13 points and Kyle Guy had 10 for the Cavaliers (14-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).
It's Virginia's best start since opening 2014-15 with 19 consecutive victories.
Nik Popovic had 16 points and Ky Bowman 15 for Boston College (9-5, 0-2).
NO. 7 KANSAS 77, NO. 25 TEXAS CHRISTIAN 68
LAWRENCE, Kan. — Dedric Lawson had 31 points and 14 rebounds, Lagerald Vick added 12 points and four assists and Kansas beat TCU.
Kansas City native Ochai Agbaji added seven points four rebounds for Kansas (12-2, 2-1 Big 12) after relinquishing his redshirt eligibility on Tuesday following the season-ending injury to Udoka Azubuike.
TCU (12-2, 1-1) continued to have troubles in Allen Fieldhouse, falling to 0-7 all-time there.
RJ Nembhard scored a season-high 14 points for TCU while shooting 3 of 6 from behind the arc.
NO. 9 VIRGINIA TECH 52, GEORGIA TECH 49
ATLANTA — Ahmed Hill scored 15 points, Kerry Blackshear Jr. added 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Virginia Tech overcame a terrible shooting performance to beat Georgia Tech.
The Hokies (14-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) won their ninth straight game for the school's best start to a season since the 1982-83 team had an identical record.
Virginia Tech, the nation's second-best 3-point shooting team, hit only five 3s and finished at 18.5 percent from beyond the arc.
Jose Alvarado scored 20 points and Abdoulaye Gueye had 11 for Georgia Tech (9-6, 1-1).
No. 10 NEVADA 92, SAN JOSE STATE 53
RENO, Nev. — Caleb Martin scored 21 of his 23 points in the second-half and Nevada rebounded from its first loss of the season to beat San Jose State.
Jordan Caroline scored 19 points. Corey Henson added 15 and Cody Martin scored 14. Trey Porter grabbed a season-high 13 rebounds.
Brae Ivey led San Jose State (3-11, 0-2 in Mountain West) with 10 points.
Caroline hit a 3-pointer 11 seconds in and Nevada (15-1, 2-1) never trailed.
MISSISSIPPI 82, NO. 11 AUBURN 67
OXFORD, Miss. — Terence Davis had 27 points and 12 rebounds to lead surprising Mississippi to an upset of Auburn.
Ole Miss (12-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) continued its run of strong play under first-year coach Kermit Davis after being widely picked to finish at or near the bottom of the league.
Freshman K.J. Buffen added 16 points for the Rebels (11-3, 0-1) while Devontae Shuler scored 14. Davis shot 9 of 15 from the field and made four 3-pointers.
Auburn was led by Bryce Brown, who took 24 shots — 19 from 3-point range — to score 23 points.
NO. 13 FLORIDA STATE 68, MIAMI 62
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — David Nichols had 13 points and PJ Savoy scored eight of his 10 in the second half as the bench players helped Florida State hold off Miami.
The Hurricanes used an 8-0 run late to close the gap to 64-62 with 46.4 seconds left, but Trent Forrest's putback with 29 seconds remaining gave the Seminoles breathing room.
Phil Cofer and Terance Mann each added seven points and six rebounds for the Seminoles (12-2, 1-1 ACC).
Chris Lykes scored 17 points and Anthony Lawrence II added 14 for Miami (8-6, 0-3). Ebuka Izundu had 13 points and nine rebounds.
RUTGERS 64, NO. 16 OHIO STATE 61
PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Montez Mathis hit two contested layups and Geo Baker nailed a jumper with 10.3 seconds to play as Rutgers scored its biggest Big Ten Conference victory under coach Steve Pikiell.
The win was the Scarlet Knights' first against a ranked Big Ten team since an upset of No. 4 Wisconsin in January 2015 under then-coach Eddie Jordan.
Rutgers (8-6, 1-3) scored the final six points in handing the Buckeyes (12-3, 2-2) their second straight loss.
Mathis finished with 16 points and Baker had 15.
Kaleb Wesson scored 16 of his 18 points in the second half for Ohio State.
TEMPLE 73, NO. 17 HOUSTON 69
PHILADELPHIA — Quinton Rose scored 22 points and Temple handed Houston its first loss of the season.
Corey Davis Jr. was called for a charge in the final second of play, wiping out a tying basket for the Cougars (15-1, 2-1 American Athletic Conference).
Breaon Brady had 19 points to lead the Cougars, who started 15-0 for the first time since the 1967-68 team won its first 31 games.
Shizz Alston Jr. had 12 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Owls (12-3, 2-1), who have won five of six. Nate Pierre-Louis added 16 points to help Temple beat a Top 25 team for the 12th straight season.
