Sooners win on Hield's three
• NO. 3 OKLAHOMA 63, NO. 24 TEXAS 60: Buddy Hield made a three-pointer in the closing seconds, capping a run where he scored the final 12 points for the host Sooners against the rival Longhorns. Hield struggled early, but scored 12 points in the final 3 minutes, 11 seconds. Isaiah Cousins added 17 points for the Sooners (20-3, 8-3 Big 12), who bounced back from a loss at Kansas State on Saturday that cost them the No. 1 ranking. The Sooners beat the Longhorns for the sixth consecutive time and increased their home winning streak to 19 games. Isaiah Taylor scored 19 points for Texas (16-8, 7-4), which had won four in a row.
• DUKE 72, NO. 13 LOUISVILLE 65: Freshman Brandon Ingram had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and the Blue Devils (18-6, 7-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat the Cardinals (19-5, 8-3) on Monday night in Durham, N.C. Grayson Allen scored 19 points for Duke, which shot 50 percent in the second half and made 10 of 12 free throws in the final 3:14 to beat a ranked opponent for the first time this season. Donovan Mitchell scored 17 points for Louisville, which shot 56 percent in the second half and erased a 15-point deficit but missed a chance to take sole possession of first place in the ACC. "A couple of weeks ago, there is no way," coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "I think we lose that game by 15 points because we wouldn't be able to get there." After losing four of five, Duke has won three in a row.
• ST. THOMAS 69, ST. JOHN'S 68: Reserve Jimmy Remke, who played only 21 minutes, scored a season-high 19 points to lead the host Tommies (20-1, 15-1 MIAC) over the Johnnies. St. Thomas took a one-point lead on Grant Shaeffer's layup with 1:17 left and neither team scored after that. Alex Schmitt and Patrick Strom each scored 13 points for St. John's (16-6, 11-6).
• CARLETON 81, HAMLINE 75 (OT): Kevin Grow had 18 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Knights (12-9, 9-7) over the visiting Pipers (4-17, 2-14). Zach Smith scored 30 points for Hamline.
• AUGSBURG 74, BETHEL 68 (OT): Collin Olmscheid had 31 points and 10 rebounds for the Auggies (13-8, 8-8) in a home win over the Royals (14-7, 9-7). Bryce Wojta led Bethel with 20 points.
• Villanova (20-3) is the No. 1 team in the nation in the Associated Press this week for the first time in its history. The Wildcats drew 32 first-place votes which helped them moved up from No. 3 to become the sixth No. 1 team this season. "We're honored and humbled to have been voted No. 1 by the writers in the Associated Press poll and the coaches in the USA Today Coaches poll," Villanova coach Jay Wright said in a statement.
• NO. 7 OHIO STATE 94, NO. 5 MARYLAND 86: Kelsey Mitchell scored 33 points and Ameryst Alston 22 as the host Buckeyes (19-4, 11-1 Big Ten) beat the Terrapins (21-3, 10-2) to take sole possession of first place in the conference. "Mitchell, Alston we obviously had no answer for," Maryland coach Brenda Frese said. "Terrific guards that really put their team on their back." The Terrapins did not lose a game to a Big Ten opponent last season, when the Terrapins won the conference regular season and tournament titles in their first year as members. "We put big emphasis on keeping a high pace," Mitchell said. "[Our coach Kevin] McGuff told us that's one of our advantages, to push the ball up the floor." Forward Brionna Jones led Maryland with 28 points and 11 rebounds.
• WISCONSIN 64, PURDUE 57: Michala Johnson had 19 points and 13 rebounds as the host Badgers (7-15, 3-9) upset the Boilermakers (16-7, 7-5).
