GAME OF THE DAY: No. 5 Michigan State 72, No. 5 Ohio State 68 OT

The Spartans led by as many as 17 in the second half, but the Buckeyes ended regulation on a 20-3 run. In overtime Kenny Kaminski and Adreian Payne hit back-to-back Michigan State threes to go up four. With under two minutes to play, Sam Thompson tied the score with a triple of his own. Keith Appling responded with a top of the key three to give Sparty a 69-66 lead.

IMPORTANT OUTCOMES

No. 9 Iowa State 87, No. 7 Baylor 72DeAndre Kane is all you need to know from this one. Iowa State remains unbeaten.

No. 16 Duke 79, Georgia Tech 57: The Blue Devils gave up 30 points in the paint and held a one-point halftime lead, but behind Rodney Hood’s 15 second half points Duke pulled away to avoid a potential upset bid after a loss to Notre Dame.

Tennessee 68, LSU 50: The Volunteers went in and steamrolled the LSU Tigers.

STARRED

DeAndre Kane, Iowa State: Game-high 30 points, nine assists, eight rebounds and five steals. He was the offense for much of the first half.

Jordair Jett, Saint Louis: The guard had 31 points and made a big defensive play late in the game to stop Xavier Munford from getting a shot off that could have given Rhode Island a last-second win.

Jarnell Stokes, Tennessee: In a big win over LSU, Stokes went for 15 points and 15 rebounds.

STRUGGLED

LaQuinton Ross, Ohio State: The Buckeyes need him to score but he went only 1-for-7 for five points.

Baylor: Committed 19 turnovers, and could not slow down Kane.

Notre Dame: Been a rough couple of weeks for the Fighting Irish. They lost Jerian Grant. They knocked off Duke, which they follow up with a home loss to North Carolina State.
