Syracuse beats No. 1 Louisville, 70-68

(Continued)

This time, Wragge’s shot from the top of the key clanked off the back of the rim.

Grant Gibbs finished with 14 points for the Bluejays, who trailed almost the entire way while having their 11-game winning streak snapped. Creighton hadn’t lost since Nov. 28.

WYOMING 58, No. 15 SAN DIEGO STATE 45

LARAMIE, Wyo. — Leonard Washington had 14 points and 14 rebounds to help Wyoming beat a cold shooting San Diego State.

Larry Nance Jr. added 11 points and 12 rebounds, and Derrious Gilmore had 13 points for the Cowboys (15-2, 2-2 Mountain West).

Wyoming’s win snapped a five-game losing streak to the Aztecs.

SDSU (14-4, 2-2) lost its second game in a row, the first time this season the Aztecs have lost back-to-back games. SDSU fell to UNLV on Wednesday.

Jamaal Franklin led SDSU with 13 points — 5 points below his season average.

The Aztecs, who entered the game averaging 72 points, struggled from the field Saturday night. They hit just 29 percent (17-of-59), making just 2-of-18 3-point attempts.

No. 16 KANSAS STATE 69, OKLAHOMA 60

MANHATTAN, Kan. — Rodney McGruder scored 20 points and Will Spradling added 15 for Kansas State.

Romero Osby and Amath M’Baye both scored 12 points for Oklahoma.

The Sooners (12-4, 3-1) kept pace with the Wildcats most of the way thanks to snagging 36 rebounds to Kansas State’s 24. That would not be enough to counteract the damage done by turnovers; Oklahoma gave the ball away 16 times.

Angel Rodriguez helped seal the deal in the closing minutes with a slashing layup in the paint and a 3 that put Kansas State (15-2, 4-0) up 61-52 with 2:25 left. Rodriguez finished with 12 points and nine assists.

No. 20 NOTRE DAME 69, RUTGERS 66

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Jack Cooley had 19 points, 10 rebounds and blocked a shot with 2 seconds left to help No. 20 Notre Dame hang on for a win over Rutgers, ending a two-game losing streak for the Fighting Irish.

Rutgers used a 6-1 run late to close to 67-66 when Eli Carter scored on a layup with 7 seconds left then forced a held ball on Eric Atkins two seconds later. Carter drove inside for the layup, but Cooley blocked the shot. Atkins then made a pair of free throws for the Irish (15-3, 3-2 Big East).
