KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) North Carolina passed the kind of road challenge it wanted to face before starting Atlantic Coast Conference competition.

Kenny Williams sank a go-ahead 3-pointer with 35 seconds left as the seventh-ranked Tar Heels rallied past No. 20 Tennessee 78-73 Sunday.

This was the first game North Carolina (10-1) played all season that was decided by a single-digit margin. Even its lone loss of the season was a 63-45 blowout against No. 2 Michigan State.


ASU overcomes 13-0 hole to beat Vandy

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Arizona State came out flat, missing shots, tossing balls into the stands, allowing open 3-pointers.

The No. 5 team in the country? The Sun Devils looked more like they should be unranked, not among college basketball's elite.


Acuil has 31 and 20, No. 21 Baylor rolls

WACO, Texas (AP) To say it's been a big week for Jo Lual-Acuil is an understatement.

Baylor's 7-foot center hadn't seen his family from Sudan in more than four years but had his parents, an aunt and niece in Waco for his graduation and two games this week.


Bowman leads BC to fourth straight win

BOSTON (AP) Boston College coach Jim Christian could tell his team was lethargic on the defensive end in the first half.

He was especially happy they realized it, too, and played a lot better in the second.


Bullock's late FTs lift Providence

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) Rodney Bullock made two free throws with 0.6 seconds left and Providence rallied to defeat Stony Brook 62-60 on Sunday.

Tyrell Sturdivant tied the game with a tip-in with nine seconds left but was called for a foul on Bullock's attempted putback.


Okogie returns, helps Ga. Tech end skid

ATLANTA (AP) The return of sophomore guard Josh Okogie on Sunday gave Georgia Tech a big lift with ACC play looming in less than two weeks and rival Georgia up next on Tuesday.

Okogie, a preseason second-team All-ACC choice, scored 19 points in his first game of the season and the Yellow Jackets (5-4) snapped a three-game losing streak with a 79-54 victory over Florida A&M.


Dickerson helps Washington hold off LMU

SEATTLE (AP) Jaylen Nowell scored 21 points and Noah Dickerson had 20 as Washington held off Loyola Marymount 80-78 on Sunday.

Thirteen of Dickerson's points came in the final five minutes as Washington fought to take and hold the lead.


Stevens leads Penn St. past George Mason

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) Lamar Stevens scored 23 points and added 12 rebounds for his first career double-double, Mike Watkins added 14 points and 12 rebounds, and Penn State dominated George Mason in the post on its way to a 72-54 victory Sunday.

The Nittany Lions (9-3) were without sophomore point guard Tony Carr, who is averaging a team-high 20 points but was suspended for a violation of team rules. But against the undersized Patriots (5-7), Penn State predictably turned to its frontcourt to deliver a victory.


Travis has 29 as Stanford tops San Fran

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Reid Travis made his first shot and then made another. His confidence grew and it led to a career night.

Travis matched his career-high with 29 points and had eight rebounds in helping Stanford win its third in four games, beating San Francisco 71-59 on Sunday.


Oklahoma takes down No. 3 Wichita State

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) No one had to convince Oklahoma's players that Saturday's game at No. 3 Wichita State presented a measuring stick of sorts.

Sooners star guard Trae Young believes the 91-83 victory "will open a lot of eyes in the college basketball world," and fellow freshman Brady Manek agreed.
