(4) Villanova 94, Marquette 85 (OT): Ryan Arcidiacono had 20 points and 11 assists to guide the Wildcats (17-2, 6-1 Big East) to an overtime victory over the Golden Eagles (11-9, 3-4). Todd Mayo had 18 points including the last 10 in regulation for Marquette to help force overtime at 77-all.

(16) Iowa 81, Kansas State 75: Melvin Ejim scored 20 points and the Cyclones beat the Wildcats (14-6, 4-3 Big 12) in Ames, Iowa, snapping a three-game losing streak.

Texas 74, (24) Baylor 60: Freshman guard Isaiah Taylor scored a career-high 27 points to help the Longhorns (16-4, 5-2 Big 12) beat the Bears (13-6, 1-5) in Waco, Texas, for their fifth consecutive win and third straight over a Top 25 team.

(18) Duke 78, Florida State 56: Rodney Hood scored 18 points to help the Blue Devils (16-4, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat the Seminoles (13-6, 4-3) in Durham, N.C., giving Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski his 900th victory at the school.
