No. 2 Kansas 98, Kansas City 57
Sophomore forward David McCormack established his career scoring high early in the second half and went on to record 28 points as the Jayhawks scorched the Kangaroos in Kansas City, Mo.
Although McCormack has started all but one game as part of a high-low look in the post, the Jayhawks (9-1) have often found more rhythm with a four-guard system. Against Kansas City, however, McCormack dominated underneath and from mid-range, going 11 of 14 from the field, while adding seven rebounds.
Kansas City (5-7) played in its hometown’s largest arena, Sprint Center, for the first time since the building opened in 2007. Senior guard Marvin Nesbitt Jr. paced Kansas City with 12 points, but the Roos committed a whopping 22 turnovers — with just 22 made field goals — while attempting to solve the man-to-man pressure applied by the taller Jayhawks.
No. 6 Gonzaga 84, No. 15 Arizona 80
Corey Kispert led four players in double figures with 18 points as the Bulldogs took advantage of the cold-shooting Wildcats and then held on for victory in Tucson, Ariz.
Filip Petrusev had 16 points and seven rebounds for Gonzaga (11-1), while Joel Ayayi added 15 points and Admon Gilder chipped in 13.
Arizona (10-2) shot 38.5 percent from the field for the game — and made just two of its first 20 3-pointers — allowing the Bulldogs to lead by 16 points with 2:12 to go.

Moses Wright paced Georgia Tech with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Khalid Moore and Bubba Parham added 10 points each as Georgia Tech (4-4) was without starting point guard Jose Alvarado, who has missed six of the last seven games with an ankle injury.
No. 12 Auburn 67, Saint Louis 61
J’Von McCormick scored a career- and game-high 20 points and added seven rebounds and six assists, leading the Tigers to past the Billikens at Birmingham, Ala.
Auburn (9-0), which started the day as one of just five undefeated teams in the nation, overcame a slow start in a game in which neither team shot the ball well. The Tigers shot 36.1 percent from the floor, including 10 of 26 on 3-pointers. They made 13 of 28 free throws (46.4 percent).
The Billikens (8-2), who got 17 points and a game-high 13 rebounds from Jordan Goodwin, had their five-game win streak broken. Javonte Perkins added 16 points off the bench.

Baugh’s 3-pointer gave Memphis a 49-47 edge with 1:43 remaining, and that was still the score when Tennessee’s Yves Pons grabbed an offensive rebound and was fouled with 21 seconds to go. He missed the front end of a one-and-one. Alex Lomax sank two free throws with 7.9 seconds left to virtually seal the victory.
No. 14 Dayton 78, Drake 47
Ibi Watson came off the bench and scored 20 points, and Obi Toppin added 19 points and eight rebounds to lead the Flyers to a win over the Bulldogs in Dayton, Ohio.
Trey Landers added 12 points, 10 rebounds and four assists for Dayton (8-1), which has won three straight since losing to No. 2 Kansas in overtime in Hawaii. Roman Penn led the Bulldogs (8-3) with 13 points. Liam Robbins chipped in with 12 for the Bulldogs.
While Dayton came into the game third in the nation in scoring with 87.4 points per game, it was the Flyers’ defense that rose to the occasion against Drake. The Bulldogs shot 28.6 percent from the field, making just 16 of 56 of their attempts.
No. 16 Michigan State 72, Oakland 49
Aaron Henry scored 10 points to lead a balanced attack as the Spartans beat the Golden Grizzlies in Detroit.

Michigan State was dominant down low, scoring 36 points in the paint while controlling the glass, outrebounding Oakland, 54-31. The Spartans started slowly before they erupted on a 20-3 run to take control in the first half.
