N.C. State upsets No. 1 Duke, 84-76

(Continued)

RALEIGH, N.C. —

 
No. 7 Syracuse 72, Villanova 61
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — C.J. Fair had 22 points, Trevor Cooney hit a pair of 3-pointers to punctuate a late surge and Syracuse beat Villanova.
Syracuse (16-1, 4-0 Big East) has won 34 straight home games, the longest active streak in the nation in Division I. Villanova (11-5, 2-1) had its seven-game winning streak snapped.
Fresh from two straight wins on the road, the Orange played without James Southerland. The senior, the Orange’s second-leading scorer at 13.6 points per game in his key role off the bench, is out until further notice because of an eligibility matter, the university said in a statement released just before the game. He sat on the bench in street clothes.
 
Mississippi 64, No. 10 Missouri 49
OXFORD, Miss. — Murphy Holloway scored 22 points, Jarvis Summers added 12 and Mississippi cruised to a victory over No. 10 Missouri.
Ole Miss (13-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) led the entire game, jumping out to an early 9-0 lead thanks to timely shooting and superior defense. Holloway was nearly unstoppable in the paint, making 8 of 12 shots from the field and 6 of 10 free throws.
Jabari Brown led Missouri (12-3, 1-1) with 13 points. The Tigers were without leading scorer Laurence Bowers, who is out with a sprained MCL in his right knee.
Ole Miss wasn’t much better on offense early, shooting 38 percent in the first half, but did enough to take a 31-22 lead into halftime.
Keion Bell scored 11 points and Pressey added 10 for the Tigers.
 
No. 11 Florida 74, LSU 52
BATON ROUGE, La. — Kenny Boynton scored 20 points and Florida used a 31-6 run across the halves to rout LSU.
Patric Young had 14 points for the Gators (12-2, 2-0 SEC). Boynton’s perimeter shooting and Young’s interior play were instrumental in Florida controlling the offensive end.
The Tigers (9-4, 0-2) stuck around well into the first half before Florida broke a 19-all tie with a 10-1 run to end the half, punctuated by Scottie Wilbekin’s jumper at the buzzer.
