Syracuse beats No. 1 Louisville, 70-68

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Brandon Triche scored 23 points and Michael Carter-Williams scored the final four points as No. 6 Syracuse rallied to upset No. 1 Louisville 70-68 on Saturday in a showdown of unbeaten Big East Conference teams.

It was the second straight Saturday No. 1 went down as Duke lost to then-No. 20 North Carolina State 84-76.

It was the Orange’s third straight win over the Cardinals.

Carter-Williams had 16 points, Jerami Grant and C.J. Fair both had 10 for the Orange (17-1, 5-0) who won their seventh straight.

Russ Smith’s 25 points led Louisville (16-2, 4-1), which had its 11-game winning streak stopped.

No. 4 KANSAS 64, TEXAS 59

AUSTIN, Texas — Ben McLemore scored 16 points and Kansas stormed back from a late double-digit deficit for its 15th straight win.

Jeff Withey added 14 points and nine rebounds for the Jayhawks (16-1, 4-0 Big 12), who trailed by 11 points in the second half before McLemore steered a rally that prevented the reeling Longhorns (8-9, 0-4) from a badly needed victory in this troubled season.

Travis Releford added 12 points for Kansas.

Sheldon McClennan led the Longhorns with 18 points. Texas has lost four straight, its longest losing streak since coach Rick Barnes’ first season in 1998-99.

No. 7 ARIZONA 71, ARIZONA STATE 54

TEMPE, Ariz. — Mark Lyons scored 24 points and Nick Johnson added 19 as Arizona pulled away in the second half.

Arizona (16-1, 4-1 Pac-12) went on the decisive run after Arizona State point guard Jahii Carson picked up his fourth foul midway through the second half. Solomon Hill added 13 points for the Wildcats, who scored 18 points off turnovers and outscored the Sun Devils by 14 inside.

Arizona State (14-4, 3-2) never recovered after Arizona’s run, thanks to 17 turnovers and a quiet game by second-leading scorer Carrick Felix, who had 5 points on 1-of-8 shooting.

Carson had 22 points and four assists, and Evan Gordon added 14 points for the Sun Devils.

No. 10 FLORIDA 83, No. 17 MISSOURI 52

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Scottie Wilbekin had 13 points and 10 assists, his first career double-double, for Florida.
