VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) Butler coach Chris Holtmann told his players to expect to be punched in the mouth playing on the road against one of the best teams in the nation.

The Bulldogs took the punch - and then delivered a knockout blow few people saw coming.

Kelan Martin scored 22 points and fueled a stunning second-half rally to lead No. 22 Butler past No. 2 Villanova 74-66 on Wednesday night, snapping the Wildcats' on-campus home winning streak at 48 games.


Syracuse tops No. 10 Duke on 3 at buzzer

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) John Gillon had done it before, just not quite on such a grand stage.

With Syracuse desperate for a signature victory in what has been a so-so season, Gillon hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key at the buzzer, and Syracuse upset No. 10 Duke 78-75 on Wednesday night in front of a raucous Carrier Dome crowd of 30,331.


KU clinches share of 13th straight title

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) One by one, the glittering Big 12 championship trophies were paraded into Allen Fieldhouse, set upon a series of tables that these days stretch nearly the full length of the court.

Bill Self proceeded to nestle No. 13 right in front.


Down 16, No. 6 Ducks top Cal on 3 at 0.2

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) Game-winning shots are becoming old hat for Oregon's Dillon Brooks. Doing it on the road to silence a partisan crowd was a bit of a change.

Brooks hit a 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds to play to cap a comeback from 16 points down and No. 6 Oregon beat California 68-65 on Wednesday night to keep its hopes alive for a Pac-12 title.


No. 8 Tar Heels handle No. 7 Louisville

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) No. 8 North Carolina kept hitting the glass, making its free throws and hitting its outside shots.

The Tar Heels played tough enough, too, to push their way past No. 7 Louisville's physical defense and strengthen their grip on the Atlantic Coast Conference lead.


Fan ejected after exchange with Pitino

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina coach Roy Williams apologized to Louisville's Rick Pitino after the Cardinals coach had a heated verbal exchange with a fan as he came off the court for halftime during Wednesday night's game.

ESPN video of the incident showed Pitino walking off the court when he suddenly turned back and started shouting toward the nearby stands. Team staff and a Smith Center security official pulled him away and led him into the tunnel. UNC team spokesman Matt Bowers said the fan was ejected after the incident.


Late 3 sends Friars by No. 23 Creighton

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Kyron Cartwright's winning 3-pointer against Creighton could turn out to be one of Providence's most memorable shots of the season if the Friars make the NCAA Tournament.

Cartwright's 3 from the right wing with 2.2 seconds left gave the Friars a 68-66 victory over the 23rd-ranked Bluejays on Wednesday night.


Gophers beat No. 24 Terps, push run to 6

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Just under a month ago, Minnesota reached the low point of its season with a loss to Maryland.

Vermont wins American East, run hits 17

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) Payton Henson scored six of his 18 points in an 11-2 closing run and Vermont won its 17th straight game and captured the American East championship with a 62-50 win over Albany on Wednesday night.

Albany led by seven early in the first half when Ernie Duncan and Dre Lewis combined for all the points in a 9-2 run that tied the game at 41 with 12:20 to play. Henson scored four straight points to cap a 6-0 surge that put the Catamounts up by four with 8:31 remaining. The Great Danes were within 51-48 on a Joe Cremo 3-pointer with 6:23 left but from there they went 1 of 6 with four turnovers.
