Baylor's Jackson under the radar in loss
Missouri 89, Baylor 88
Baylor guard Pierre Jackson scored 20 points and handed out 15 assists in his first start of the season. He's the first player to reach those levels in a game since VCU's Joey Rodriguez (22 and 17) on November 12, 2010
Kansas 69, Texas 66
Texas guard J'Covan Brown shot 7-26 (27 percent) from the field after going 8-28 (29 percent) in his previous outing. 18 different players this season have taken at least 26 shots in a game but Brown is the first to do it twice. He's also had the two worst shooting performances of those players.
Jackson State 80, Grambling State 67
Jackson State went 23-23 from the foul line in the win. That's the most made free throws without a miss by any team this season.
Florida A&M 68, Maryland Eastern Shore 63
UMES collected 35 offensive rebounds while making only 23 field goals. That's the most offensive rebounds by a team in a loss this season.
Eastern Michigan 41, Toledo 38
The 41 points are the second fewest scored by a winning team this season. UALR defeated FAU 40-38 on January 7th.
Drexel 71, Northeastern 53
Northeastern's Quincy Ford missed all four of his field goal attempts, but was 10-10 from the line. He's just the second double-figure scorer this season to go perfect from the line while not making a field goal.
West Virginia 77, Cincinnati 74 (OT)
Darryl "Truck" Bryant missed as many field goals (14) in 44 minutes as the rest of the West Virginia's starters missed in 131 minutes played.
Pacific 64, UC Davis 48
UC Davis shot 50 percent from three-point range (9-18), but only 24 percent from two-point range (7-29) in the 16-point loss.
Nevada 74, Fresno State 61
Trillion of the night: Patrick Nyeko of Nevada played 10 minutes without recording a stat in the Wolf Pack's 74-61 win.
Elsewhere around college basketball... Jan. 18, 2003. That’s the last time Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Jim Calhoun all tasted defeat on the same day.
Saturday, it happened again, as No. 1 Syracuse fell on the road at Notre Dame, No. 4 Duke saw its 45-game home win streak snapped against Florida State and No. 11 Connecticut lost its second straight game and fourth of its last six.
The Orange falls after beginning 20-0, the best start to a season in Syracuse history. The loss leaves Murray State (20-0) as the only remaining undefeated team in Division I.
