Philadelphia University won the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference title - and the league's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament - with an impressive 77-68 win Saturday night over Wilmington University in the Gallagher Center.
The Wildcats (11-19) ran out to a 18-13 lead on a couple of free throws by Kevin Ohen, but that would be it. The Rams (23-7) tied it at 20 all with 10 minutes, 25 seconds remaining, and never trailed afterward.
The Rams were led by their two starting forwards: Derek Johnson scored 22 points and Peter Alexis chipped in 18, to avenge an earlier 72-70 loss to the Wildcats.
Kentucky 67, Florida 50 - Playing at home, the No. 1 Wildcats pulled away from the Gators late to complete the program's first unbeaten regular season.
Trey Lyles scored 14 points, Karl-Anthony Towns added 13 - 10 in the first half - and grabbed six rebounds that were critical in helping Kentucky (31-0, 18-0 SEC) slowly pull away.
Kasey Hill scored 15 points and Dorian Finney-Smith had 12 for Florida (15-16, 8-10), which couldn't keep up with the Wildcats' depth in the final 10 minutes.
Louisville 69, Virginia 57 - Mangok Mathiang made a 15-footer with 2.7 seconds left to give the 16th-ranked Cardinals an upset win at home over the nation's No. 2 team.
Evan Notle's inbounds pass went wide to end the Cavaliers' chance for a last-second win, giving Louisville (24-7, 12-6 ACC) the ball back underneath its own goal. Terry Rozier made a free throw for the final margin. Virginia fell to 28-2 and 16-2.
Virginia's Malcolm Brogdon hit his fourth trey of the half to give the Cavaliers a 57-56 lead with 13 seconds left. Rozier then drew a double team and found Mathiang open at the free-throw line for the winner and his only points of the game, and his second field goal since Jan. 31.
Arcadia 77, Bethany 68 - Playing at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, the fifth-seeded Knights (16-12) advanced to their first-ever Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III South championship final with a stunning win over the Bisons (18-11). The Knights will face the winner of the other semifinal between Stevenson University and Hood College.
West Virginia 81, Oklahoma State 72 - Devin Williams tied a career-high with 22 points to lead the No. 20 Mountaineers (23-8, 11-7 Big 12) to a home win over the Cowboys in the teams' regular-season finale. The Cowboys (18-12, 8-10) head into the conference tournament with losses in five of their last six games.
Gonzaga 81, San Francisco 72 - Przemek Karnowski scored a season-high 24 points to lead the No. 7 Bulldogs (30-2) over the Dons (14-18) in a West Coast Conference tournament quarterfinal in Las Vegas.
Duke 84, North Carolina 77 - Playing in Chapel Hill, N.C., the No. 3 Blue Devils (28-3, 15-3 ACC) capitalized on a handful of key turnovers by the 19th-ranked Tar Heels (21-10, 11-7) to finally get a fragile hold on a game in which neither team could get many second-half stops.
N.C. State 71, Syracuse 57 - Trevor Lacey scored 19 points to lead the Wolfpack (19-12, 10-8 ACC) past the visiting Orange, ending the season for Jim Boeheim's Orange (18-13, 9-9) a day after the NCAA hit the program with sanctions for numerous violations.
