Posted: Wednesday, January 21, 2004

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Chuck Hayes scored off his own miss with 3:49 left in overtime to lead ninth-ranked Kentucky to a 69-68 victory Tuesday night over Tennessee.

Erik Daniels had 19 points and Hayes added 18 points and 16 rebounds for the Wildcats (12-2, 3-1 Southeastern Conference), who nearly had another scare after their 19-game SEC home winning streak was ended Saturday by Georgia.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. Will Bynum scored 20 points, and Georgia Tech ended Wake Forest's 24-game home winning streak.

Wake Forest (11-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) was looking to tie its record of 25 consecutive victories at Lawrence Joel Coliseum. Instead, the Deacons lost their third straight game and first at home since Feb. 21, 2002.

The Pirates (12-4, 2-2 Big East) had lost their last two games and their last five to Syracuse. The loss ended the 13-game winning streak for Syracuse (13-2, 3-1).

Rickey Paulding had 20 points for Missouri (7-7, 2-2 Big 12), but missed five free throws in the final four minutes of regulation and overtime.

Texas (12-2, 3-0) was perfect from the line in overtime, going 10-for-10, and was 15-for-19 overall.

That helped the Longhorns stretch their winning streak to seven games.

Ivey, who averages 10 points, got the winning basket with 2.4 seconds to go in a two-point victory over Nebraska on Saturday. On Tuesday night, he put Texas ahead to stay with two free throws that made it 67-65 with 2:48 to go, then added two more baskets in the final 1:10 to help put the game away.
