SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Top-ranked Gonzaga's quest to go undefeated this season ended under a barrage of baskets by BYU's Eric Mika on Saturday night.

Mika had 29 points and 11 rebounds, and BYU upset Gonzaga 79-71. It was the Cougars' first victory ever over a No. 1 team, after four losses, and spoiled the Bulldogs' perfect record in their last regular season game.

The sophomore center made 10 of 14 shots from the floor and 9 of 13 free throws. His biggest basket put BYU ahead 73-71 with a minute left in the game.


UCLA ends No. 4 Arizona's home streak

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) An awesome offense has carried UCLA to a terrific season. The Bruins turned to rebounding and defense for what may have been their most impressive win yet.

Thomas Welsh scored 12 of his 14 points in the second half and No. 5 UCLA dominated the offensive boards to beat No. 4 Arizona 77-72 in a Pac-12 showdown Saturday night.


Monk's 30 in 2nd lift Kentucky by Gators

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Not satisfied with making perimeter jumpers, Malik Monk drove to the basket to create numerous opportunities at the free throw line and found openings to feed his Kentucky teammates.

The freshman guard wasn't aware until afterward of how many points he had piled up, but he knew that they helped the 11th-ranked Wildcats earn their most important victory this season.

The freshman was the story from there.


UNC routs Pitt, earns share of ACC crown

PITTSBURGH (AP) There's a mantra North Carolina coach Roy Williams trots out on occasion when he wants to grab the attention of his talented if occasionally erratic team. It's one forward Justin Jackson knows by heart.

"Coach always says there's never been a national championship team that hasn't been able to play defense," Jackson said.


No. 2 Villanova clinches Big East title

VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) Villanova claimed another Big East regular-season title, but the Wildcats aren't ready to start celebrating. They are hoping to save that for later - just like last season.

Iowa State holds off No. 9 Baylor 72-69

Surging Michigan beats No. 14 Purdue

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Moe Wagner is becoming a fan favorite at Michigan - and the type of sharp-shooting big man the Wolverines haven't always had.

Wagner scored 22 of his 24 points in the first half, outplaying everyone on Purdue's vaunted front line and leading Michigan to an 82-70 victory over the 14th-ranked Boilermakers on Saturday. The 6-foot-11 Wagner went 10 of 15 from the field and made four 3-pointers.


Iowa deals No. 24 Terps 3rd loss in row

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) The best performance of Jordan Bohannon's college career coincided with another ego-deflating effort by No. 24 Maryland.
