UPDATED 22 December 2012, 12:44 a.m. ET

Game of the Night

Stanford 70, Northwestern 68

Stanford led by as many as eight points in the second half, but Northwestern was able to pull within two with possession in the final seconds. A drive by the Wildcats’ Tre Demps missed and Stanford was able to gain possession. A long lead pass helped the final seconds tick away and Stanford escaped with its biggest win of the season on the road.

Josh Huestis was big for Stanford as Dwight Powell battled foul trouble, putting up a double-double of 18 points and 12 rebounds. John Gage had 12 key points, including shooting 2-of-3 from three-point range.

Important Outcomes

Maryland 76, Stony Brook 69

Virginia Commonwealth 93, Longwood 56

Colorado 98, Northern Arizona 51

Wagner 63, Southern Methodist 53

UNC-Asheville 72, St. John’s 65

Starred

Brandon Davies, BYU: Though his Cougars lost to Baylor by double digits, Davies posted 26 points and 17 rebounds in perhaps the best individual performance of the night.

Jack Cooley, Notre Dame: 24 points, 15 rebounds. Cooley continues to be the centerpiece to another under-the-radar Irish team.

Ryan Boatright, Connecticut: 26 points, 9 assists. Boatright and backcourt mate Shabazz Napier combined for 45 points and 15 assists in a win over Fordham.

Baylor Frontcourt: Cory Jefferson had 13 points, 16 rebounds and Isaiah Austin had 14 points and 10 rebounds in a win over BYU Friday night.

Struggled

Pablo Bertone, FAU: 1-of-11 shooting, 3 pts

Dave Sobolewski, Northwestern: 0-of-6 from the floor, 1 point

The Rest of the Top 25

No. 6 Indiana 88, Florida Atlantic 52
