College Basketball: Top 25 Roundup

Associated Press
The Top 25 roundup …
LOUISVILLE, Ky. ó Chris Smith matched his personal best with 19 points to go over 1,000 for his career and No. 5 Louisville beat IUPUI 90-60 Wednesday night for the Cardinals’ 16th straight victory at home.
Gorgui Dieng hit all eight of his shots to set a career high with 18 points to go along with 12 rebounds as the Cardinals started 8-0 for the second straight season.
Louisville’s schedule hasn’t been too difficult with only one road game so far before the Cardinals travel to face No. 1 Kentucky in a Dec. 31 showdown.
In the meantime, they’re continuing to get healthier with the return of forward Rakeem Buckles. He hadn’t played since tearing a ligament in his right knee in February.
No. 8 XAVIER 73, BUTLER 61
Tu Holloway scored 14 of his 16 points from the free-throw line and Mark Lyons also had 16 points.
The Musketeers (7-0) kept their perfect record intact by scoring 10 straight points in the second half after leading by 18 in the first.
Butler (4-5) was led by Chase Stigall and Roosevelt Jones, who each had 10 points. But Jones needed to help to leave the floor in the second half after sustaining an apparent knee injury.
No. 12 FLORIDA 78, ARIZONA 72, OT
Patric Young scored a career-high 25 points and Erving Walker made free throws down the stretch.
The Gators (6-2) extended their home-winning streak to 11 and won their first resume-building game of the season. They previously lost at Ohio State and Syracuse.
No. 14 WISCONSIN 70, WISCONSIN-GREEN BAY 42.
Jordan Taylor had 15 points and 10 assists to lead the Badgers.
Ryan Evans scored 14 points and Jared Berggren added 13 for the Badgers (7-2), who took control with a 14-1 run in the first half. Evans and Berggren had back-to-back dunks as Wisconsin scored the first eight points of the second half to build a 20-point lead.
Wisconsin won despite shooting just 3 of 17 from 3-point range.
DAYTON 74, No. 16 ALABAMA 62
Chris Johnson scored 20 points and Dayton closed with a 17-9 run to knock off No. 16 Alabama and ruin Crimson Tide head coach Anthony Grant’s homecoming.
Grant starred for the Flyers from 1983-87. Alabama fell behind 38-27 at halftime with star forward JaMychal Green on the bench most of the first half with two fouls. Green scored the Tide’s first six points and finished with 12 on 6 of 9 shooting.
No. 24 ILLINOIS 48, ST. BONAVENTURE 43
Brandon Paul scored 12 points in the final four minutes Wednesday to keep No. 24 Illinois undefeated with a sloppy 48-43 comeback win over St. Bonaventure.
