Four ranked teams fall
Arizona survives as Wisconsin, UMass, Ohio St. and Iowa St. fall
OLEAN, N.Y. -- Youssou Ndoye scored 11 of his 12 points in the second half, and St. Bonaventure clamped down on defense in upsetting No. 21 Massachusetts 78-65 on Wednesday night.
Guard Matthew Wright, with 11 points, got the raucous crowd on its feet by putting the finishing touches on the win with a 3-pointer with 55 seconds remaining. The Bonnies (13-8, 3-4 Atlantic 10) ended a 24-game losing streak against ranked opponents, which dates to a 57-56 home win against No. 20 Temple on Jan. 15, 2000.
The near sellout crowd began yelling ''Yes! Yes! Yes!'' with 30 seconds left, and then stormed the court.
Trey Davis scored 18 points for the Minutemen (17-3, 4-2), who lost for the second time in three games.
STANFORD, Calif. -- Nick Johnson kept Arizona's perfect season going for another game, hitting a go-ahead 3-pointer with 51 seconds left and a pair of free throws with 5.8 seconds to go as the top-ranked Wildcats survived for a 60-57 victory against Stanford on Wednesday night for their school-record 21st consecutive win.
After Johnson hit a jumper in the middle of the key with 2:36 remaining to make it 55-53, Dwight Powell answered on a baseline drive with 1:21 to go before Johnson delivered once more.
Johnson finished with 16 points, five rebounds and four assists and T.J. McConnell added 11 points, eight rebounds and four assists for Arizona (21-0, 8-0 Pac-12), off to the program's best start in conference play in more than a decade.
Arizona is one of three unbeaten teams left in Division I basketball.
Powell had 13 points for Stanford (13-7, 4-4).
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Andrew Wiggins has finally started to live up to the hype.
The superstar freshman scored a career-high 29 points, including six consecutive late in the game, to lead No. 6 Kansas to a 92-81 victory against Iowa State on Wednesday night and help push the Jayhawks' winning streak to seven consecutive games.
Wiggins, the nation's No. 1 recruit, has caught fire after a slow start to his college career. He had 27 points in Saturday's win at TCU, and matched that with an emphatic dunk that gave Kansas an 81-72 lead with just under 3 minutes remaining in the game.
The Jayhawks (16-4, 7-0 Big 12) put away the Cyclones (15-4, 3-4) from there, something they failed to do after building a 16-point first-half lead and a 13-point second-half cushion.
Perry Ellis added 20 points for Kansas, which has won five consecutive against the Cyclones.
Georges Niang led the Cyclones with 24 points and DeAndre Kane added 22.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Freshman Tyler Ennis scored 16 of his 18 points in the second half and No. 2 Syracuse beat Wake Forest 67-57 on Wednesday night to match the best start in program history.
C.J. Fair added 16 points for the Orange (20-0, 7-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) while Trevor Cooney scored all eight of his in the final 1:45.
Syracuse remained one of three unbeaten teams in Division I with No. 1 Arizona, which beat Stanford 60-57 on Wednesday, and No. 4 Wichita State.
The Orange pulled away late while sidestepping a possible trap with a visit from No. 17 Duke coming up this weekend, and joined the 2011-12 group as the only Orange teams to win their first 20 games.
But in their first visit to Tobacco Road as ACC members, they had to work for it against a Wake Forest team that had been perfect at home and tough on visitors in the top five.
Travis McKie scored 12 points for the Demon Deacons (14-7, 4-4), and his free throw with 4:10 left pulled them to 54-49.
MADISON, Wis. -- Drew Crawford scored a season-high 30 points, JerShon Cobb added all 10 of his points in the second half and Northwestern upset cold-shooting No. 14 Wisconsin 65-56 on Wednesday night.
It was Northwestern's first win against the Badgers in Madison since 1996.
The smooth Crawford glided around the court for tough shots - none harder than a 3 off a curl with Wisconsin's Josh Gasser's hand in his face to give Northwestern (11-11, 4-5 Big Ten) a 13-point lead.
Wisconsin (17-4, 4-4) turned up the pressure late to get within six with 41 seconds left. But Traevon Jackson lost the ball on a drive with 23 seconds left to seal the Badgers' fate.
Ben Brust's 21 points led Wisconsin, which lost for the fourth time in five games.
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Joe Jackson scored 17 points, Chris Crawford and Michael Dixon added 12 each and No. 22 Memphis was able to hold off UCF 69-59 on Wednesday night.
The victory extends the Tigers' winning streak to four games. Memphis (16-4, 6-2 American) also extended its conference road winning streak to 16 games.
UCF (9-9, 1-6) was within a basket for most of the second half, but was outscored 13-5 to end the game.
Isaiah Sykes led UCF with 24 points.
The loss drops the Knights to 1-15 all-time against the Tigers.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- D.J. Newbill hit a pull-up jumper over Aaron Craft with 2 seconds left in overtime, lifting Penn State to a 71-70 victory against No. 24 Ohio State and ending years of futility against the Buckeyes.
Newbill, who led the Nittany Lions (11-10, 2-6 Big Ten) with 25 points, hit a 3 that forced overtime. Brandon Taylor added 19 points and Graham Woodward had 11 as Penn State ended Ohio State's string of victories in the series at 18.
LaQuinton Ross scored 16 points, Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 15 and Amir Williams added 12 for Ohio State (16-5, 3-5), which has lost five of six after a 15-0 start that saw it rise to No. 3 in the polls.
Buckeyes coach Thad Matta was 17-0 against Penn State since taking over as head coach in 2004-05.
