Syracuse beats No. 1 Louisville, 70-68

(Continued)

The victory was coach Billy Donovan’s 400th with the Gators, making him the third coach in Southeastern Conference history to accomplish that feat with the same school. He joined Kentucky’s Adolph Rupp and LSU’s Dale Brown in the 400-win club.

Erik Murphy scored 15 points despite playing with a broken finger for the Gators (14-2, 4-0 SEC), who won their sixth straight, and Kenny Boynton added 14.

Wilbekin did a strong defensive job on Missouri point guard Phil Pressey, who finished with two points on 1-of-7 shooting with 10 turnovers and six assists.

Jabari Brown led the Tigers (13-4, 2-2) with 16 points.

No. 18 MICHIGAN STATE 59, No. 11 OHIO STATE 56

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Keith Appling made two free throws with 7.9 seconds left and finished with 15 points for Michigan State.

The Buckeyes had a chance to potentially tie the game in the closing seconds, but Shannon Scott didn’t come close on a running 3-point attempt.

Deshaun Thomas scored a career Big Ten-high 28 points, including six 3-pointers.

The Spartans (16-3, 5-1 Big Ten) have won five straight conference games.

Ohio State (13-4, 3-2) was playing for the first time since handing Michigan its only loss last Sunday.

Lenzelle Smith Jr. had six points on 2-of-7 shooting as the Buckeyes’ second-leading scorer.

Michigan State’s Adreian Payne had 14 points and Branden Dawson had nine points and 10 rebounds.

WICHITA STATE 67, No. 12 CREIGHTON 64

WICHITA, Kan. — Carl Hall had 17 points and 13 rebounds and Malcolm Armstead hit two key free throws in the closing seconds for Wichita State.

Cleanthony Early added 13 points and Demetric Williams had 10 for the Shockers (17-2, 6-1 Missouri Valley Conference), who pushed their home-court winning streak to 17 games.

Doug McDermott finished with 25 points for the Bluejays (17-2, 6-1), but he never got the ball with the game on the line. Instead, Ethan Wragge misfired on a potential tying 3 with 6 seconds left, and then had another chance when Hall missed two free throws at the other end.
