MORAGA, Calif. (AP) Before the game, Scott Cross reminded his UT Arlington players they had a chance to make their mark on program history.

"He was like, `This would be the biggest win in school history,'" guard Erick Neal said. "That just added fire to it and made us want to play harder."

Kevin Hervey scored 15 points and UTA beat a Top 25 team for the first time, shocking previously unblemished No. 12 Saint Mary's 65-51 on Thursday night just more than a week after another special and emotional win at Texas.


Jok's 23 help Iowa upset No. 25 Iowa St.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa State spent the last 61 weeks in the Top 25.

After getting crushed by Iowa, the Cyclones' run as a ranked team is likely finished.


Seminoles score 118, improve to 9-1

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Florida State will go into Sunday's game against No. 21 Florida on a roll.

Seven Seminoles scored in double figures as their 118-63 victory over Nicholls State on Thursday was the most points scored in Leonard Hamilton's 15 seasons.


No. 2 UCLA back among basketball elite

LOS ANGELES (AP) Led by talented freshmen Lonzo Ball and T.J. Leaf, No. 2 UCLA is back in college basketball's upper echelon for the first time under coach Steve Alford.

The Bruins (9-0) are off to their best start since 2006-07 after upsetting then-No. 1 Kentucky at Rupp Arena last week , boosting them to their highest ranking since November 2007.


Baylor rises from unranked to No. 4

WACO, Texas (AP) Baylor coach Scott Drew certainly gets why the Bears were overlooked going into this season.

"On paper with us losing our senior point guard, a lottery pick, the school's all-time leading rebounder, with us having only one senior this year, you understand why people weren't voting for us in the Top 25," Drew said.


Indiana St. hands No. 16 Butler 1st loss

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) Indiana State's Brenton Scott wanted to show everyone that he's just as good as his twin brother.

And just as capable of leading his team to a big upset.


Buffs deal No. 13 Xavier another defeat

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Colorado coach Tad Boyle made an innocent comment after a sluggish performance at the start the season: Play like that again and Xavier would beat the Buffaloes by 20.

His players received the message. They made sure it didn't go down like that.


Jackson helps No. 7 UNC get by Davidson

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Justin Jackson buried shot after shot from behind the arc in the best performance of his career for No. 7 North Carolina. Coach Roy Williams didn't have much to feel good about otherwise.

Jackson matched his career high with 27 points and hit a career-best seven 3-pointers to help the Tar Heels beat Davidson 83-74 on Wednesday night, though they struggled both to slow down high-scoring Wildcats guard Jack Gibbs and find much of a rhythm with top point guard Joel Berry II sidelined by a sprained left ankle.


No. 6 Kentucky regroups, blows out Valpo

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky's mistake-filled start quickly gave way to the energetic effort the sixth-ranked Wildcats acknowledged was missing against UCLA. And their intensity soon put things out of reach for Valparaiso.

Bam Adebayo scored 16 points, Malik Monk added 15 and scored 21 straight points in a first-half run to beat the Crusaders 87-63 on Wednesday night.


No. 10 Creighton tops Nebraska. now 9-0

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Creighton's 90-points-a-game offense didn't show up until late against Nebraska.

No problem. The 10th-ranked Bluejays were still more than good enough to beat their in-state rival again.
