Arkansas finally gave second-year coach Mike Anderson the signature win he had been looking for.
BJ Young led three players in double figures with 13 points as the Razorbacks opened quickly and never let up in a shocking 80-69 victory over No. 2 Florida on Tuesday night in Fayetteville, Ark.
The win improves the Razorbacks (14-8, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) to 14-1 at home this season, and it snaps a 10-game winning streak for the Gators - who had ascended to the No. 2 spot in The AP Top 25 one day earlier.
Arkansas opened the game 15-of-20 from the field. Michael Qualls and Marshawn Powell added 11 points each and all 11 players scored for the Razorbacks in their first win over a top 10 team since early in 2008-09.
Mike Rosario led Florida (18-3, 8-1) with 15 points, while Scottie Wilbekin had 14.
After trailing by as many as 23 points in the first half, the Gators cut the lead to 43-26 at halftime
No. 3 Michigan 76, No. 10 Ohio St. 74, OT: In Ann Arbor, Mich., Tim Hardaway Jr. brought Michigan back with a relentless streak of 3-point shooting, then blocked a shot by Aaron Craft in the final seconds of overtime to give the Wolverines the victory.
Hardaway finished with 23 points, including five straight 3-pointers in the second half. The Wolverines (21-2, 8-2 Big Ten) led by two points when Craft rushed the ball into the frontcourt after a missed Michigan free throw. He got all the way to the basket, but Hardaway was there to smother his last-ditch attempt to tie it.
Ohio State (17-5, 7-3) managed only two points in overtime.
No. 8 Miami 72, Boston College 50: In Coral Gables, Fla., Kenny Kadji scored 10 points during a span of four possessions to start a second-half surge for Miami.
Reserve junior Rion Brown tied a career high with 22 points for the Hurricanes (18-3, 9-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). Olivier Hanlan scored 16 points for Boston College (10-12, 2-7).
No. 13 Kansas St. 68, Texas Tech 59: In Lubbock, Texas, Rodney McGruder had 18 points and nine rebounds to lead Kansas State, extending the Wildcats' winning streak to three games.
Angel Rodriguez added 13 points and Thomas Gibson had 13 for the Wildcats (18-4, 7-2 Big 12).
McGruder was 6-of-11 from the field, while Rodriguez was 3-of-6 from 3-point range.
Jordan Tolbert scored 19 points for the Red Raiders (9-11, 2-7).
