NO. 3 VIRGINIA 89, MIAMI 80, 2 OT
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) – No. 3 Virginia squandered a 19-point first-half lead and then came from behind in both extra periods to remain unbeaten.

Anderson gave the Cavaliers their first lead of the extra periods when he scored with 3:41 to go in the second overtime, and they pulled away from there.
The Cavaliers (13-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) are off to their best start since 1980-81. Miami (10-4, 0-1 ACC) lost for the fourth time in the past six games.

Trimble, a freshman point guard, missed 10 of 15 shots from the floor but went 9 for 13 at the foul line with five rebounds.
Although the Terrapins never trailed after the opening three minutes, Minnesota (11-4, 0-2) kept it close deep into the second half. But the Golden Gophers shot only 33.8 percent in their lowest-scoring outing of the season and were outrebounded 44-35.

Pat Connaughton knocked down a 3-pointer just over a minute into the second overtime and added a right-handed scoop 40 seconds later for the Irish. Battling foul trouble most of the game, Zach Auguste’s low post bucket with two minutes left put the Irish up by seven.

D’Angelo Harrison matched his season high with 31 points for short-handed St. John’s (11-3, 0-2), which played its first game since second-leading scorer Rysheed Jordan left the team to deal with ”personal and family matters” back home in Philadelphia.
After winning 11 of their first 12 games for the first time since 1985-86, it’s been a disappointing start to league play for the Red Storm, who had won seven straight before a 78-67 loss Wednesday at Seton Hall.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Gary Browne sparked West Virginia with 16 points while leading scorer Juwan Staten watched from the bench with an illness as the Mountaineers opened Big 12 Conference-play with a win over TCU.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Freshmen L.J. Peak, Tre Campbell and Paul White combined for 37 points for No. 25 Georgetown.
With a pair of starting seniors, Joshua Smith and Jabril Trawick, on the sideline because of foul trouble, Georgetown (9-4, 1-1) relied heavily on its first-year players, who provided 25 of 29 points during one span.
Campbell’s 3-pointer early in the second half wrapped up a 15-2 spurt that put Georgetown ahead 39-31. And White’s 3 with 7 1/2 minutes to go gave the hosts a 61-46 edge.
