NO. 12 WEST VIRGINIA 77, TEXAS 62
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) After West Virginia coach Bob Huggins dropped to his knees and clutched his chest in a scary moment before halftime, Jevon Carter finished with 24 points to lead the Mountaineers over.
Lamont West had 23 points, helping WVU (22-6, 10-5 Big 12) shake off a slow start and its coach’s frightening fall.
Huggins went down during a timeout just before halftime, and his players quickly came to his aid. Huggins stood, briefly massaged his chest and stayed on the sideline.
It wasn’t immediately known whether Huggins received medical attention at halftime, but he returned to coach in the second half.
ESPN’s Holly Rowe said Huggins told her at halftime that he thought his defibrillator went off. A West Virginia basketball spokesman had no immediate comment.
Jarrett Allen led Texas (10-18, 4-11) with 17 points.
MIAMI 54, NO. 18 VIRGINIA 48
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) – Bruce Brown made a 3-pointer with 23.8 seconds left in overtime and Miami gave Virginia its fourth straight loss.
Brown scored 14 points to lead the Hurricanes (19-8, 9-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) to their third consecutive victory. Kamari Murphy and Dejan Vasiljevic added 10 points each.
Devon Hall scored 15 points to lead Virginia (18-9, 8-7), which last lost four straight in 2009-10, Tony Bennett’s first season as coach. Isaiah Wilkins added 10 points and 10 rebounds, including two free throws with four seconds left in regulation to tie it.
Miami thought it had won when Davon Reed hit a 3-pointer at the end of the second half, but a video review was used to determine he released the ball just after the buzzer.
A putback by Marial Shayok with 39 seconds left gave the Cavaliers a 48-47 lead, but Brown made his only 3-pointer of the game on the Hurricanes’ ensuing possession, and Miami sealed it at the free-throw line.
NO. 19 FLORIDA STATE 104, BOSTON COLLEGE 72
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Dwayne Bacon had 16 points and all 13 Florida State players had at least four points, helping the Seminoles bounce back from two straight losses with a victory over Boston College.
Bacon went over the 1,000-point mark for his career on a 3-pointer early in the second half after going scoreless in last Saturday’s loss at Pittsburgh.
PJ Savoy added 15 points and the Seminoles’ bench accounted for 59 points. Jonathan Isaac (14 points) and Jarquez Smith (10) also scored in double figures, and FSU (22-6, 10-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) never trailed and led by 34 (75-41) six minutes into the second half.
Kai Bowman had 24 points and Jerome Robinson 21 for Boston College (9-19, 2-13), which has lost 11 straight and 13 of its last 14.
