Texas falls to Arkansas


Arkansas 67, No. 7 Texas 61

Fayetteville, Ark. — Michael Washington scored 22 points, including a driving dunk with 22.5 seconds remaining, to help Arkansas upset Texas.

A week after knocking off then-No. 4 Oklahoma, the Razorbacks led Texas, 62-61, and had the ball in the final minute. Their play appeared to break down, but the 6-foot-9 Washington was able to beat his man off the dribble and suddenly had a clear path to the basket. He was fouled as he dunked and made the free throw to put Arkansas (12-1) ahead by four.

A.J. Abrams then missed three straight shots at the other end, and Stefan Welsh added a breakaway layup to finish the scoring.

Welsh scored 20 points for the Razorbacks. Damion James led Texas (11-3) with 17.

The Longhorns went 1-of-14 from three-point range. Texas played without 6-foot-10 senior Connor Atchley, who split his tongue in Friday night’s win over Appalachian State.

Iowa State 64, Houston Baptist 56

Ames, Iowa — Craig Brackins scored 22 points and grabbed 16 rebounds as Iowa State beat Houston Baptist for its fourth straight win.

Oklahoma State 83, Savannah State 56

Stillwater, Okla. — James Anderson scored 23 points to lead Oklahoma State. Anderson scored in double figures for the 13th time in 14 games this season.

TCU 85, Texas Tech 80

Lubbock, Texas — Edvinas Ruzgas scored 24 points to lead TCU. TCU (10-5) led by as much as 16 with 11:37 left, but Tech battled back to cut the lead to four with 5:00 left with the help of Mike Singletary and TCU’s foul troubles. Singletary scored 22 points, 10 of those from the free-throw line. TCU finished with 20 fouls.

Missouri 88, Coppin State 55

Columbia, Mo. — Matt Lawrence was 6-for-7 from three-point range.
