The Associated Press
OXFORD, Miss. -- Chris Warren rattled in a 25-footer over two defenders with 2.9 seconds remaining and Mississippi beat No. 10 Kentucky 71-69 on Tuesday night.
Warren, who scored 22 points, hit the high-arcing shot to give the Rebels their first victory against a top 10 team during the five-year tenure of coach Andy Kennedy.
Warren finished 9 of 15 from the field, including 4 of 7 from 3-point range.
Terrance Jones scored 22 points and Doron Lamb added 20 for the Wildcats, who rallied from an 11-point second-half deficit to take the late lead. Lamb missed a running 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Ole Miss (14-8, 2-5 Southeastern Conference) got 16 points from Zach Graham and 12 each from Reggie Buckner and Terrance Henry.
Kentucky (16-5, 4-3) had a huge advantage in the all-time series coming into Tuesday, winning 96 of 108 games, including 25 of 34 in Oxford.
No. 2 Kansas 88, Texas Tech 66 -- Box Score
LUBBOCK, Texas -- Marcus Morris scored 18 points to lead No. 2 Kansas past Texas Tech 88-66 on Tuesday night, giving the Jayhawks their first win in Lubbock since 2003.
Kansas (21-1, 6-1 Big 12) never trailed and steadily built an insurmountable lead. The Jayhawks were hot from the outset, and though their shooting cooled in the second half, they prevailed with ease.
The Red Raiders (11-12, 3-5) were at a loss to stop the Jayhawks, who seemed to scored from everywhere. They made 8 of 20 3-point attempts and got 48 points in the paint.
John Roberson scored 24 points to lead the Red Raiders.
Texas Tech went to the 3 in the second half to try and catch up but made only 6 of 22 for the game.
Javarez Willis hit a 3 to pull Tech within 60-43 with 13:11 left but it could get no closer.
Kansas soon built its lead back to 25 points.
No. 19 Wisconsin 66, No. 11 Purdue 59 -- Box Score
MADISON, Wis. -- Senior Jon Leuer scored 24 points and sophomore reserve Ryan Evans made two big plays in the final minute to lead No. 19 Wisconsin to a 66-59 victory against No. 11 Purdue on Tuesday night.
Evans hit a jumper from the free throw line with 50 seconds left to put the Badgers (16-5, 6-3 Big Ten) ahead for good at 60-59. He tied up the Boilermakers' E'Twaun Moore for a jump ball that went to Wisconsin with 25 seconds left.
Evans added a breakaway dunk in the final seconds for the last of his 10 points.
Junior guard Jordan Taylor added 15 points and freshman Josh Gasser had 11 for the Badgers, who again showed their ability to bounce back after a loss. Wisconsin, which lost 56-52 at Penn State on Saturday, has won its past 19 games after losses dating to January 2009.
JaJuan Johnson led Purdue (18-5, 7-3) with 23 points -- 17 in the second half -- for his 32nd consecutive game in double figures.
Moore added 15 points for the Boilermakers and D.J. Byrd had 11.
With blizzard conditions outside, the attendance at the Kohl Center was announced as a sellout of 17,230, based on tickets sold. However, the crowd appeared to be approximately 13,000.
Florida 65, T-No. 23 Vanderbilt 61 (OT) -- Box Score
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Kenny Boynton scored 15 points, the last of them coming on a huge 3-pointer in overtime, and Florida beat No. 24 Vanderbilt 65-61 on Tuesday night.
Chandler Parsons added 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Gators (17-5, 6-2 Southeastern Conference), who improved to 5-0 following losses this season.
Parsons missed a jumper with 16 seconds remaining in overtime, but got the rebound and made two free throws with 15.6 seconds remaining to seal Florida's ninth win in its last 11 games.
Parsons may have shocked the home crowd, especially considering four of Florida's five losses can be attributed to missed free throws. The Gators went 15 of 26 from the line against Vanderbilt (15-6, 3-4), which lost consecutive games for the first time this season.
Boynton's 3-pointer with 1:04 remaining made up for those woes.
John Jenkins led Vandy with 22 points.
T-No. 23 North Carolina 106, Boston College 74 -- Box Score
BOSTON -- Freshman Harrison Barnes scored 26 points, including going 4 of 7 from 3-point range, to lead No. 23 North Carolina to a 106-74 victory against Boston College on Tuesday night.
Tyler Zeller scored 18 points and Reggie Bullock hit four 3-pointers during a 22-4 surge late in the first half when the Tar Heels (16-5, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) turned a five-point deficit into a 13-point lead. Bullock scored 14 points in the first half and finished with 16 as Carolina shot 57 percent from the field in the game.
Joe Trapani had a season-high 25 points and a career-high 15 rebounds for Boston College (14-8, 4-4).
North Carolina missed its season high in scoring by one point when coach Roy Williams’ emptied his bench in the final 2 minutes, up by more than 30.
