No. 1 Kentucky beats No. 16 Florida 74-59

Freshman Anthony Davis had 22 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks, Terrence Jones added 19 points and the top-ranked Wildcats capped a perfect season in Southeastern Conference play with a 74-59 victory against No. 16 Florida.

No. 2 Syracuse beats Louisville for 30th win
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Scoop Jardine wore a satisfied look on his face.

Brandon Triche scored 18 points, Dion Waiters had 13, and second-ranked Syracuse beat No. 19 Louisville 58-49 on Saturday to finish the season unbeaten at home.

No. 6 UNC tops No. 4 Duke for ACC title
DURHAM, N.C. -- Kendall Marshall felt dissed by Duke. The Blue Devils played the highlights of their last-second win against North Carolina on the video scoreboard and Marshall didn't like it, so he brought his Tar Heels into a quick huddle. "I told my teammates I thought that was disrespectful, and we need to go out here and prove a point,'' Marshall said. Did they ever. North Carolina never trailed in an 88-70 rout of No. 4 Duke on Saturday night, claiming the ACC regular-season title behind 20 points and 10 assists from its motivated point guard.

No. 10 Ohio State nips No. 5 Michigan State
EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Ohio State's only senior ended Michigan State's regular season on a sour note. William Buford made a high-arcing jumper from the top of the key with 1 second left, lifting the 10th-ranked Buckeyes to a 72-70 win against the fifth-ranked Spartans on Sunday to forge a three-way tie for the Big Ten championship. Draymond Green had a chance to put the Spartans ahead in his final home game with 32 seconds left, but missed a long fadeaway from the right wing. Just before the buzzer, Green had a heave that missed the mark.

No. 7 Mizzou hits 16 3-pointers to top Texas Tech
LUBBOCK, Texas -- Kim English and his Missouri teammates like to work the ball inside and establish a post presence. That plan took a backseat Saturday for the No. 7 Tigers, who hit a season-best 16 3-pointers in an 81-59 win against Texas Tech. Marcus Denman added 17 points, all in the second half when he went 5 for 8 from long range, and Ricardo Ratliffe finished with 13 points and a career-high 15 rebounds for Missouri.

No. 8 Marquette beats No. 11 Georgetown
MILWAUKEE -- Hoarse from yelling his way through an intense game, Buzz Williams hardly could speak. He didn't need to talk to show Darius Johnson-Odom and Jae Crowder what they've meant to him. Crowder scored 26 points with 14 rebounds and Johnson-Odom added 17 points in the duo's final home appearance as seniors, helping No. 8 Marquette beat No. 11 Georgetown 83-69 on Saturday and secure the No. 2 seed in the Big East tournament.

Iowa State knocks off No. 9 Baylor 80-72
AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State was already in decent shape to earn the NCAA tournament berth that's eluded the program for seven long years. After knocking off ninth-ranked Baylor in the regular-season finale, the Cyclones know they won't have to sweat out Selection Sunday. Scott Christopherson had 23 points in his final home game and Iowa State rallied to beat No. 9 Baylor 80-72 Saturday night for its second win against a top-10 opponent this season.
