Stanford's Rosco Allen put on a shooting clinic Saturday and it was bad news for No. 11 Oregon. Allen matched his career-high with 25 points, making four of five from long range and nine of 12 overall, to lead Stanford to a 76-72 upset over the Ducks. ''He came out extremely focused,'' Cardinal teammate Dorian Pickens said of Allen.

Notre Dame's backcourt of Demetrius Jackson and Steve Vasturia was too much for No. 13 Louisville. Jackson kept the Fighting Irish in the game in the first half, Vasturia led the rally back from an 11-point deficit in the second and other Notre Dame players finally hit some key shots down the stretch in a 77-66 victory Saturday.

Kansas' Devonte' Graham stole the show from Buddy Hield. Graham scored a career-high 27 points and did a tenacious job defending the nation's No. 2 scorer to help the sixth-ranked Jayhawks defeat No. 3 Oklahoma 76-72 on Saturday.

Derrick Walton was 0 for 9 from the field when he drove to the basket, was knocked off balance and still managed to flip the ball off the glass and in. ''Honestly, I didn't see it (go in) - I kind of got, like, clobbered,'' Walton said. Walton and Zak Irvin scored the game's final 11 points, and Michigan overcame an awful stretch of shooting in the second half to beat No. 18 Purdue 61-56 on Saturday.

No. 5 Xavier learned its lesson. Four days after stumbling at Creighton, the Musketeers got back to basics and used a balanced offense and a smothering defense to run away from Butler 74-57 on Saturday. After making a season-low 30 percent from the field and just 1 of 21 3-point attempts in Tuesday's loss, Xavier rebounded by shooting 56.9 percent and going 9 of 18 beyond the arc.

Kentucky coach John Calipari wasn't around to say much about his team's fight for first place in the Southeastern Conference. Tyler Ulis, Jamal Murray and the rest of the 22nd-ranked Wildcats spoke volumes in a blowout win at South Carolina. Ulis had career highs of 27 points and 12 assists, Murray scored 26 points and Kentucky (19-6, 9-3) ran past the Gamecocks 89-62 on Saturday - much of it after Calipari was ejected less than 3 minutes into the game.

Not much has come easy at home for Providence in the Big East this season. It took one of the Friars' best offensive efforts to break out of their biggest slump to date. Rodney Bullock had 23 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 20 Providence held off a furious rally to beat Georgetown 75-72 on Saturday.
