  • WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — C.J. Harris scored 23 points and Wake Forest beat No. 2 Miami 80-65 on Saturday to snap the Hurricanes' 14-game winning streak.
    Codi Miler-McIntyre added 15 points while Harris was 5 for 5 from 3-point range to lead the Demon Deacons (12-14, 5-9 Atlantic Coast Conference).
    They shot 54 percent, led by double figures for the entire second half and reeled off 12 straight points to pull away for their biggest victory under third-year coach Jeff Bzdelik.
    No. 3 Gonzaga 81, San Diego 50
    At Spokane, Wash., Kevin Pangos scored 18 points for Gonzaga, which is in position to rise to second in the AP poll after No. 2 Miami was upset by Wake Forest.
    Kelly Olynyk added 14 points and nine rebounds for Gonzaga (27-2, 14-0 West Coast Conference), which clinched at least a tie for the WCC regular-season title it yielded to Saint Mary's last year. It marks the 12th league title in 13 seasons for the Zags, who have set a team record for regular-season wins.
    Chris Manresa scored 19 points to lead San Diego (13-16, 6-8), which has lost four straight.
    No. 5 Florida 71, Arkansas 54
    At Gainesville, Fla., Mike Rosario scored 15 points and Patric Young added 14 as Florida rebounded from one of its two Southeastern Conference losses.
    Kenny Boynton and Erik Murphy both had 12 points for the first-place Gators (22-4, 12-2 SEC).
    No. 11 Georgetown 57,No. 8 Syracuse 46
    At Syracuse, N.Y., Otto Porter scored a career-high 33 points and Georgetown put an emphatic stamp on the impending end of an era before an imposing Orange crowd.
    Thirty-three years after the Hoyas halted Syracuse's 57-game home winning streak at Manley Field House, Porter added his name to the pantheon of stars who made this rivalry scintillating over the years.
    No. 9 Kansas 74, TCU 48
    At Lawrence, Kan., Jeff Withey scored 18 points and Ben McLemore added 14 as Kansas avenged a stunning loss to the lowly Horned Frogs just over two weeks ago.
    Perry Ellis and Travis Releford added 12 points each for the Jayhawks (23-4, 11-3 Big 12), who began the day tied with Kansas State for first place in the conference.
    Kansas has won three straight since a rare three-game losing streak, one that included an embarrassing 62-55 loss to the Horned Frogs (10-17, 1-13) on Feb. 6. TCU still has not managed to beat another Big 12 team during its first season in the conference.
    No. 10 Louisville 79,Seton Hall 61
    At Louisville, Ky., Gorgui Dieng scored a career-high 23 points for Louisville. The 6-foot-10 center showed confidence in his jumper and the result was 10 of 11 shooting from the field. The junior also grabbed eight rebounds and blocked two shots.
    Russ Smith added 19 points and Luke Hancock made three 3-pointers and finished with 13 points as the Cardinals (22-5, 10-4 Big East) won their third straight.
