Posted: Monday, January 26, 2004

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Tim Pickett scored all of his 18 points in the second half and Florida State made six straight free throws over the final 45 seconds to hand Wake Forest its fourth straight loss.

The win was the second in four days over a Top Ten team for the Seminoles (14-5, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who beat No. 7 North Carolina 90-81 in overtime on Thursday.

Freshman Chris Paul had 17 points for Wake Forest (11-4, 2-3), which lost to Texas, Duke and Georgia Tech.

No. 5 Lousiville 65, Tennessee 62

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Francisco Garcia scored 24 points Sunday night and No. 5 Louisville rallied in the second half for its 15th straight victory, 65-62 over Tennessee.

The Cardinals (15-1) regained the lead for the first time since the opening minutes and took control with a 12-0 run midway through the second half.

For the third straight meeting with Louisville, the Volunteers (10-5) kept the game close only to fall short. Tennessee blew an 11-point lead last year and lost on a last-second shot the year before.

Brandon Crump had 16 points for the Volunteers, who lost their third straight.

TUCSON, Ariz. Hassan Adams scored 20 points and Channing Frye had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Wildcats.

Ivan Radenovic, a freshman from Serbia playing in his ninth college game, had a season-high 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds for Arizona (13-3, 5-2 Pac-10), who won their third straight since a two-game skid knocked them out of the Top Ten.

Luke Jackson had 20 points, six rebounds and six assists for Oregon (9-5, 4-3), while Ian Crosswhite scored 11 points and Mitch Platt 10.

No. 23 Purdue 76, Michigan St. 70, OT
