FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Moses Kingsley had 18 points and 11 rebounds, Dusty Hannahs and Anthlon Bell scored 17 apiece and Arkansas ended No. 5 Texas A&M's 10-game winning streak with a 74-71 victory Wednesday night.
The loss was the first for the Aggies (17-3, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) since a defeat at Arizona State on Dec. 5, ending the school's longest winning streak since a 13-game stretch during the 2010-11 season.
Bell and Hannahs each hit a trio of 3-pointers for the Razorbacks (10-10, 4-4), who ended a three-game losing streak and won their eighth straight against Texas A&M in Bud Walton Arena.
Danuel House scored 24 points and shot 4 of 5 from 3-point range to lead Texas A&M, which was 19 of 48 (39.6 percent) from the field.
NO. 16 LOUISVILLE 91, VIRGINIA TECH 83: At Blacksburg, Va., Damion Lee scored 29 points and Louisville used sharp shooting from behind the 3-point arc to overcome foul trouble and beat Virginia Tech.
Lee hit his first six tries from long range and Trey Lewis made four 3s in the second half for the Cardinals (17-3, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference). Lewis finished with 22 points, all but two coming in the second half.
Jalen Hudson scored 27 points, Seth Allen had 26 and Zach LeDay 20 for the Hokies (12-9, 4-4), who have dropped three in a row since a surprising 4-1 start to conference play. Virginia Tech stayed in the game by making 33 of 38 free throws, but allowed the Cardinals to hit 12 3-pointers in 18 attempts.
NO. 17 BAYLOR 69, OKLAHOMA STATE 65: At Stillwater, Okla., Rico Gathers scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half to help Baylor defeat Oklahoma State.
Gathers also had nine rebounds and made a critical free throw in the closing seconds. The preseason all-Big 12 selection had scored in single digits three of his previous five games and scored just two points Saturday against No. 1 Oklahoma.
Taurean Prince scored 17 points and Lester Medford added 12 for the Bears (16-4, 6-2 Big 12), who moved into a tie with West Virginia and Oklahoma atop the conference standings.
NO. 20 KENTUCKY 88, MISSOURI 54: At Lexington, Ky., Tyler Ulis scored 20 points, Derek Willis added a career-best 18 and Kentucky used an early 20-0 run to blow past outmanned Missouri.
The Wildcats (16-4, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) had it easy in improving to 9-0 against the Tigers and winning their third straight overall.
Good shooting was the key again for Kentucky, which made 52 percent from the field after hitting 55 percent against Vanderbilt.
NO. 21 PURDUE 68, MINNESOTA 64: At Minneapolis, Vince Edwards scored 24 points and grabbed eight rebounds to help No. 21 Purdue hang on without freshman standout Caleb Swanigan and beat Minnesota.
Edwards finished 8 for 15 from the floor. A.J. Hammons added 16 points, Raphael Davis pitched in 10 and the Boilermakers (18-4, 6-3) bounced back from a loss to Big Ten leader Iowa for the second time this month.
