No. 12 Louisville 71, Southern Methodist 63
Luke Hancock had a career-high 23 points, including two free throws with 46 seconds remaining, for Louisville in a meeting of Hall of Fame coaches.
Hancock's second straight 20-point game helped Rick Pitino's Cardinals (14-3, 3-1 American Athletic Conference) get the final word in his first collegiate matchup against Larry Brown and his Mustangs (11-4, 1-2).
Making his first start despite dealing with a left Achilles issue, the senior guard made 8 of 15 from the field - 4 of 9 from 3-point range - to help keep Louisville ahead in a tense game that Montrezl Harrell finally settled with a dunk and a block after Hancock's free throws.
No. 13 San Diego St. 79, Air Force 72
JJ O'Brien had 18 points and 11 rebounds as San Diego State extended its winning streak to 13 games.
It is the second-longest winning streak in school history for the Aztecs (14-1, 3-0 Mountain West) and it continues their second-best start ever behind 20-0 in 2010-11.
Washington 71, No. 15 Colorado 54
C.J. Wilcox set career highs with seven 3-pointers and 31 points, including 21 in the second half, for Washington.
Washington (11-6, 3-1 Pac-12) had lost 12 straight against ranked teams.
Colorado (14-3, 3-1) never recovered after leading scorer Spencer Dinwiddie crumbled to the court late in the first half after his left knee buckled while dribbling on a fast break. Dinwiddie had to be helped to the locker room by teammates and did not return.
Stanford 82, No. 17 Oregon 80
Anthony Brown scored a career-high 24 points and Stanford held on to send Oregon to its third straight loss.
Chasson Randle had 23 points for the Cardinal (10-5, 1-2 Pac-12), who beat their second ranked team this season, something they hadn't accomplished since 2009.
No. 2 Notre Dame 79, Virginia 72
Natalie Achonwa scored a career-high 26 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and Notre Dame survived a late challenge by Virginia.

Chiney Ogwumike had 34 points and 16 rebounds to lead Stanford over Colorado.
Karlie Samuelson had 17 of her 19 points in the first half for the Cardinal (15-1, 4-0 Pac-12), who improved to 11-4 all-time against the Buffs.

No. 5 Louisville 62, South Florida 54
Shoni Schimmel scored 25 points, five of them in the final seven minutes to help Louisville hold off South Florida.
Schimmel's three-point play finished an 11-1 run the Cardinals (16-1, 4-0 American Athletic Conference) used to take control for good after USF (8-8, 3-2) trimmed what had been a 17-point second-half deficit to 49-47. Sara Hammond began the spurt with a 3-point play and finished with 14.
Courtney Williams led USF with 19 points, but only had four in the second half. Alisia Jenkins had 12 points and led a 17-2 run that got the Bulls back into the game.
Vanderbilt 74, No. 8 Tennessee 63
Jasmine Lister scored 22 points and Christina Foggie added 21 as Vanderbilt upset Tennessee giving the Commodores a very rare win over their in-state rival.
Vanderbilt (14-3, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) snapped a three-game skid against Tennessee with its first win in the series since Feb. 9, 2012. The Commodores now have nine victories in the 70 games they count having played against Tennessee.
