Auburn, Indiana take falls


February 10, 2000|By FROM NEWS REPORTS

Ohio State waited eight years to take sole possession of first place in the Big Ten. The Buckeyes held it for just 24 hours.

Dean Oliver kept Iowa in it until Kyle Galloway hit a three-pointer from the right corner with four seconds left last night as the Hawkeyes upset No. 5 Ohio State, 67-64, in Columbus, Ohio.

"If a team has a number next to it, we play pretty well," Iowa coach Steve Alford said, explaining the Hawkeyes' victories over nationally ranked Connecticut, Kansas and Ohio State.

The loss dropped Ohio State (16-4, 7-2) into a tie for first place with Michigan State in the Big Ten. The Buckeyes, who were all alone at the top for the first time since 1992 after Purdue beat Michigan State the night before, had won eight straight and 12 of 13.

North Carolina 70, North Carolina State 62: In Raleigh, N.C., Brendan Haywood scored 19 points and Joseph Forte added 16 as the Tar Heels (15-9, 6-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) ended North Carolina State's (15-6, 5-5) 14-game home unbeaten streak.

North Carolina has not lost in Raleigh since a 78-75 decision on Feb. 3, 1996.

No. 13 Connecticut 87, Boston College 58: In Hartford, Conn., the Huskies (17-5, 6-3 Big East) rebounded from their worst loss of the season -- 85-66 at No. 6 Michigan State -- with one of their best offensive efforts in routing the Eagles (9-14, 1-9).

No. 17 Iowa State 72, Missouri 62: In Columbia, Mo., Marcus Fizer had 28 points and 12 rebounds as the Cyclones (20-3, 8-1 Big 12) rebounded from a poor first half to beat the Tigers (14-7, 7-2).

Georgia Tech 68, Virginia 47: In Atlanta, freshman Clarence Moore scored 15 points and Alvin Jones blocked seven shots as the Yellow Jackets (11-11, 3-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) ended a four-game ACC losing streak with the rout of the Cavaliers (15-8, 5-5).

No. 10 Rutgers 81, Providence 68: In Providence, R.I., the Scarlet Knights (16-4, 8-2 Big East) matched their season high for points allowed in a game, but still beat the Friars (9-12, 4-7) for their fifth straight victory.
