College Basketball Roundup

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Lawrence Hill got the ball in the corner, knew where he was heading and was delighted to see the path to the basket clear just in time.

“I wanted to give a chance for the lane to open up because Fred was still there,” Hill said after waiting just long enough, then making a driving floater with nine-tenths of a second left to give Stanford a 76-75 victory over Virginia.

The shot produced the 14th and final lead change of the game that was close throughout, a desperation half-court heave by Virginia not coming close at the end.

The Cardinal (9-4) trailed 75-74 after Virginia’s J.R. Reynolds made one of two free throws with 9.4 seconds left. But they inbounded the ball, got it to Hill in the corner and he drove, making a short jumper that sat on the front of the rim and fell.

No. 9 Kansas 70, S. Carolina 54

COLUMBIA, S.C. — When Mario Chalmers saw his coach’s fire, he couldn’t help but pump up his game, too.

Chalmers had 19 points and Darrell Arthur added 17 to help the ninth-ranked Jayhawks (13-2) win their seventh straight with a 70-54 win over South Carolina (10-3).

No. 10 Pitt 69, S. Fla. 48

PITTSBURGH– Pittsburgh overcame another ineffective game by star Aaron Gray, turning to a smaller unit to open an 11-point lead over South Florida in the first half, and the Panthers were never pushed.

No. 19 Tennessee 92, Mississippi State 84

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee’s Chris Lofton scored 11 of his 21 points in the final 6:21 and freshman Duke Crews added a season-high 18 points to help the

No. 19 Volunteers open the SEC slate with a 92-84 win over the Bulldogs.

St. Joe’s 75, Charlotte 70

CHARLOTTE — Ahmad Nivins scored 11 of his 18 points in the second half Sunday and Saint Joseph’s rallied to beat Charlotte 75-70.

WSSU 77, Ferrum 56

WINSTON-SALEM — Darius Floyd scored 12 points to lead three players in double-digit scoring as Winston Salem State defeated Ferrum 77-56 to snap a 15-game losing streak.

Curtis Hines came off the bench to add 12 points for the Rams (2-18).

ETSU 66, Gardner-Webb 63

BOILING SPRINGS — Brad Nuckels scored 31 points and made 15-of-18 from the field as East Tennessee State rallied from a 12-point deficit to defeat Gardner-Webb 66-63.


BATON ROUGE, La. — LSU forward Glen Davis was taken to the hospital for evaluation after being in an automobile accident early Sunday morning just hours after the Tigers’ 66-49 victory over Connecticut.

Davis left the Pete Maravich Assembly Center late Saturday and was driving to get something to eat when his car was broadsided by another driver who apparently ran a stop sign.
