Keith Benson had 26 points and 10 rebounds and unranked Oakland (6-5) beat No. 7 Tennessee, 89-82, on Tuesday night, three days after losing by a point to then-No. 7 Michigan State.
It was the Golden Grizzlies' second win over a ranked opponent in 27 tries and only the second time the Volunteers (7-1) have lost on their home court in Knoxville to a nonconference opponent in coach Bruce Pearl's six seasons. The loss came a day after Tennessee entered the top 10 after beating Pittsburgh.
Texas 70, North Florida 48 - Gary Johnson scored 17 points and tied his career-high with 12 rebounds, and the No. 22 Longhorns (8-2) coasted past the Ospreys (4-6) in Austin, Texas.
Baylor 65, Tennessee 54 - Brittney Griner and the No. 2 Bears (10-1) were too big of an obstacle for the No. 6 Vols (9-2). Griner had 21 points, nine blocks, and disrupted nearly everything the Vols wanted to do, lifting Baylor to a win in Waco, Texas.
Ohio State 87, South Carolina Upstate 55 - Jantel Lavender scored 33 points to help the No. 11 Buckeyes (8-1) cruise past the Spartans (3-4) in Columbus, Ohio.
UConn adds 7-footer. Fourth-ranked Connecticut just got bigger. The Huskies added 7-foot-1 center Enosch Wolf to the men's basketball roster.
Wolf, from Goettingen, Germany, committed to the Huskies in July. He graduated high school in Germany but had been taking classes and playing basketball this fall at Wilbraham and Monson Academy, a prep school in Wilbraham, Mass.
UConn said Wolf was eligible to begin practice on Sunday and to play on Monday when the Huskies host Coppin State at the XL Center.
Charlotte dismisses Spears. Charlotte coach Alan Major dismissed top scorer Shamari Spears from the team, a little over two weeks after he was suspended for the third time in two seasons for violating unspecified rules.
The first-year coach shed little light on the decision in a school news release, other than to say it came after "much consideration." Spears, a second-team all-Atlantic Ten preseason selection, was averaging 17 points and 3.2 rebounds.
Freshman of the week. Penn State guard Maggie Lucas took home her fourth-straight Big Ten Freshman of the Week award.
Lucas averaged 21.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.0 steals in a pair of wins for the Lions.
