WACO, Texas -- Cory Jefferson had 16 points and 11 rebounds for his third double-double already this season and Isaiah Austin also scored 16 points as No. 20 Baylor beat Charleston Southern 69-64 on Wednesday night.

After Baylor (4-0) had a four-minute scoring drought in the second half, allowing the Buccaneers to close to 4 points, Gary Franklin made a 3-pointer with five minutes left. Then the 7-foot-1 Austin had another of his six blocked shots, leading to Franklin driving the baseline for a layup that made it 64-55.

But Charleston Southern wasn't done. Will Saunders, who led the Buccaneers (2-3) with 16 points made a 3-pointer with 54 seconds left that made it 67-64.

The Bucs went the other way after Austin missed a shot. But Saah Nimley missed a 3-point with 14 seconds left, then stepped out of bounds trying to set up for another shot after they got the rebound.

Williams' career-high 16 lead No. 8 OSU, 63-52

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Amir Williams scored a career-high 16 points and Shannon Scott added 13 to lead No. 8 Ohio State to a 63-52 victory against American on Wednesday night.

The Buckeyes (4-0) struggled all night to make shots, finishing 20 of 56 from the field for 36 percent.

Scott tied a career best with nine rebounds.

Jesse Reed scored 15 points, Tony Wroblicky had 14 and Darius Gardner 10 for the Eagles (1-2).

The Buckeyes were coming off an impressive 52-35 win against No. 17 Marquette in Milwaukee on Saturday. The 35 points were the fewest the Buckeyes have ever allowed against a ranked opponent.

The loudest roar of the night might have taken place when Scott stole the ball and then fed Sam Thompson for a high-flying dunk at the 12:51 mark.

But not until Smith hit a 3 with 3:22 left was it clear the Buckeyes were in command. That was part of a 9-0 run that pushed the lead to 16.

Ohio State improved to 19-3 against teams from the Patriot League.

VanVleet, Baker lead No. 14 Wichita St to win

TULSA, Okla. -- Fred VanVleet and Ron Baker each scored 21 points and No. 14 Wichita State finished with a 26-6 run to shake free of pesky Tulsa for a 77-54 win on Wednesday night.

Leading 51-48 after an inside basket by Tulsa's James Woodard, Wichita State scored the next eight points to force a Golden Hurricane timeout with 8:35 left in the contest.

The victory kept Wichita State (5-0) unbeaten on the season while Tulsa (0-3) is still looking for its first victory.

Tulsa pulled to 10 points on a 3-pointer by Pat Swilling with 5:39 to play, but VanVleet and Baker took over the game from there. VanVleet notched a 3-pointer on Wichita State's next possession and Baker capped off the Shockers' next two trips down the court with a jumper and a 3-pointer to boost Wichita State's advantage to 71-53 with 3:26 remaining.

Swilling finished with 12 points, Tulsa's only scorer in double-digits.
