W. Va. stuns G’town


West Virginia 75, No. 12 Georgetown 58

No. 13 UCLA 61, Washington State 59

Pullman, Wash. — Nikola Dragovic scored a career-high 20 points as UCLA hung on for its 16th straight victory in Pullman.

No. 16 Butler 68, Wisconsin-Green Bay 59

Indianapolis — Matt Howard scored 15 points.

No. 23 Gonzaga 83, Pepperdine 69
