GAME OF THE NIGHT: No. 3 Michigan State 71, Indiana 66
This was an important game for the Hoosiers and after one half, led Michigan State — without Adreian Payne — with a one-point lead. In the second half, Gary Harris took over scoring 20 of his 24 points in the second half.
No. 14 Kentucky 68, Texas A&M 51: Last season the Aggies picked up a win on the Rupp Arena floor. This time, Kentucky handed Texas A&M a 68-51 conference loss. Alex Poythress had himself a night, scoring a season-high 16 points and added five rebounds. Julius Randle ended with a double-double of 13 points and 11 boards.
LSU 77, Missouri 71: Despite 28 points from Jabari Brown and taking the lead with under four minutes to play, Missouri still didn’t have enough to leave Baton Rouge with an SEC victory. Jordan Mickey and Anthony Hickey connected on field goals and free throws down the stretch for LSU.
New Mexico 84, Boise State 75: The Lobos benefitted from an early start, and first half shooting woes from the Broncos to build a double-digit halftime lead. In the second half, Boise State tried to dig itself out of its first half hole, cutting the lead to seven twice, getting it as close as five. But Boise State couldn’t make the shots down the stretch, while Hugh Greenwood and Cameron Bairstow did for New Mexico.
1) DeAndre Daniels and Shabazz Napier, UConn: combined for 58 points, 19 rebounds, and six assists in Connecticut’s drubbing of Temple, 90-66.
2) Cameron Bairstow, New Mexico: The Lobos got off to a hot start, and throughout the game Bairstow was a constant presence. The New Mexico forward iced the game with a transition layup after the Lobos beat the Boise State press.
3) Ian Miller, Florida State: While Aaron Thomas led the Seminoles with 20 points, Miller did his best Michael Snear impression with a floater with four second left to survive a rally from Notre Dame.
1) Harvard: The Crimson lost to Florida Atlantic tonight 68-53, in a game that was as ugly as the score may indicate. The Crimson shot a paltry 23% FG (14-61). Given that they don’t have a very strong resume to begin with, an at-large bid — if necessary — was slim, and tonight’s loss all but clinches that they must win the Ivy League championship.
2) Clemson: The Pitt Panthers 56 percent to Clemson’s 32 and 53 percent from deep compared to the Tigers’ 21. The end result was a 76-43 road loss. Talib Zanna, Lamar Patterson and Cameron Wright outscored the entire Clemson team by four.
3) Willie Cauley-Stein, Kentucky: In the last three games for Kentucky, Cauley Stein has put up a combined three points, off 1-for-9 shooting, with 10 rebounds and two blocks. On Tuesday night he went for one point and one rebound.
