Summitt's record broken for wins at 4-year school

Harry Statham earned his record-breaking 1,099th victory as a head coach as freshman Nate Michael scored 40 points to lead McKendree to a 92-84 win over Maryville in St. Louis. The 78-year-old Statham, who is in his 50th season coaching his alma mater, moved past legendary Tennessee women's coach Pat Summitt for most wins ever by a coach at a four-year school. He has 476 losses.

• NOTRE DAME 80, NO. 2 NORTH CAROLINA 76: The visiting Tar Heels (19-4, 8-2 ACC) suffered their second straight loss, meaning that both the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country lost to unranked opponents on Saturday.

• DUKE 88, N.C. STATE 80: Grayson Allen scored 28 points and Luke Kennard (26 points) hit six of Duke's season-best 14 three-pointers to help the Blue Devils (17-6, 6-4 ACC) win in coach Mike Krzyzewski's return following a one-game, illness-related absence.

• NO. 3 VILLANOVA 72, NO. 11 PROVIDENCE 60: The road win gets the Wildcats (20-3, 10-1) to 20 victories and avenges their lone Big East loss this season. Ben Bentil, who came in as the conference's leading scorer, didn't start for the Friars (18-6, 6-5) and was bothered by the right ankle he sprained on Tuesday. He still scored 20 points.

• NO. 6 XAVIER 90, MARQUETTE 82: Lakeville North product J.P. Macura scored a career-high 20 points and hit a pair of three-pointers down the stretch, rallying the host Musketeers (21-2, 9-2 Big East) to a victory over the Golden Eagles (15-9, 4-7). Xavier made a season-high 13 three-pointers and shot a season-high 65 percent from beyond the arc.

• NO. 7 KANSAS 75, TCU 56: Perry Ellis had 23 points and 10 rebounds for the Jayhawks (19-4, 7-3 Big 12), who had lost their previous three conference road games. Devonte Graham had 15 points, three assists, two steals and officially no turnovers. The victory came three days after coach Bill Self made headlines by questioning his team's toughness — and blasting junior Brannen Greene's sportsmanship — following a home victory over Kansas State.

• NO. 13 IOWA STATE 64, OKLAHOMA STATE 59: Georges Niang scored 16 of his 18 points in the second half and grabbed all nine of his rebounds after intermission for the visiting Cyclones (17-6, 6-4 Big 12). Iowa State senior forward Jameel McKay (12.4 ppg, 9.0 rpg) sat out the game after he was suspended indefinitely by the team for violating team rules. Junior Deonte Burton made his first start of the season for McKay and scored 11 points.

• NO. 14 WEST VIRGINIA 80, NO. 15 BAYLOR 69: The host Mountaineers (19-4, 8-2) took over sole possession of first place in the Big 12.

• TEXAS 69, TEXAS TECH 59: The host Longhorns (16-7, 7-3) got their seventh win in eight games to stay in the thick of the Big 12 race. Texas has won 20 in a row over Texas Tech in Austin.

• NO. 20 KENTUCKY 80, FLORIDA 61: Freshman Jamal Murray scored a career-high 35 points for the host Wildcats (17-6, 7-3 SEC). Murray also made a career-best eight of Kentucky's season-high 12 three-pointers.

• LSU 88, MISSISSIPPI STATE 77: Antonio Blakeney scored a career-high 31 points and the Tigers (15-8, 8-2) moved into sole possession of first place in the Southeastern Conference.

• SAN DIEGO STATE 78, NEW MEXICO 71 (OT): Jeremy Hemsley scored eight of his 23 points in overtime as the host Aztecs tied the Mountain West Conference record for the best start at 11-0.

• GEORGE WASHINGTON 72, VCU 69: Patricio Garino scored 27 points and the visiting Colonials (18-5, 7-3 Atlantic 10) ended the Rams' 12-game winning streak. VCU (17-6, 9-1) lost for the first time since Dec. 15 at Georgia Tech.

• SOUTH DAKOTA STATE 80, IUPUI 58: Deondre Parks scored 17 points for the host Jackrabbits (19-5, 8-2 Summit League).

• NORTH DAKOTA STATE 62, IPFW 46: The host Bison (16-8, 6-4) knocked off the Summit League-leading Mastodons (19-7, 8-3).

• NORTH DAKOTA 78, WEBER STATE 71: Geno Crandall scored 21 points for the host Fighting Hawks (12-10, 7-4 Big Sky).

• UCONN 92, EAST CAROLINA 46: Kia Nurse scored a season-high 20 points as the host Huskies won their final tuneup before a showdown with No. 2 South Carolina on Monday. Breanna Stewart added 17 points and 10 rebounds for UConn (22-0, 12-0 American Athletic), whose 59-game winning streak is the third longest in NCAA history. With her 200th career steal, Stewart became just the seventh woman in Division I — and the second Huskies player — with at least 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds, 200 assists, 200 steals and 200 blocked shots.
