WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Chris Paul scored 23 points and Wake Forest withstood a flurry of late 3-pointers to hang on for a 92-89 victory over Duke on Wednesday night.

The seventh-ranked Demon Deacons (18-3, 6-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) led by as many as 14 in the second half and appeared headed to an easy victory.

But J.J. Redick made a trio of 3-pointers in the final 2:14 and Sean Dockery also hit one as No. 4 Duke cut it to 90-89 with 3 seconds to play.

No. 9 Louisville 77, No. 18 Cincinnati 70

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Freshman forward Juan Palacios scored 17 points and banked in an unlikely 3-pointer to seal Louisville's victory over Cincinnati.

Taquan Dean scored 19, and Palacios shot 8-for-10 with 10 rebounds for the Cardinals (19-3, 7-1 Conference USA), who have won eight in a row and 13 of 14.

No. 10 Oklahoma St. 77, Kansas St. 57

STILLWATER, Okla. — Joey Graham scored 23 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, John Lucas III had 19 points and 10 assists, and Oklahoma State beat Kansas State.

No. 14 Oklahoma 69, Texas A&M 65

NORMAN, Okla. — Taj Gray scored 22 of his 24 points in the second half and Oklahoma overcame a 16-point deficit to beat Texas A&M.

Drew Lavender gave the Sooners (17-3, 6-1 Big 12) the lead for good with a 3-pointer from the corner with 5:36 remaining.

No. 19 Wisconsin 73, Northwestern 58

MADISON, Wis. — Kammron Taylor's 18 points led five Wisconsin players in double figures against Northwestern.

Even though they were without leading scorer Alando Tucker for the second straight game, the Badgers (15-4, 6-2 Big Ten) never trailed in their first home game since top-ranked Illinois snapped their 38-game home winning streak last week.

No. 23 Connecticut 81, No. 24 Villanova 76

HARTFORD, Conn. — Rashad Anderson scored 21 points and a made key block in the closing seconds, leading Connecticut over Villanova.

The Huskies (13-5, 5-3 Big East) got their first win over a ranked opponent in four tries.

No. 25 Georgia Tech 64, Florida St. 61

ATLANTA — Will Bynum made up for a poor first half by hitting a 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds left, giving Georgia Tech a victory over Florida State.

Bynum, who shot 1-of-8 in the opening half, finished with 19 points. He hit the game-winner after Florida State made up a 12-point deficit by going on a 19-7 run to tie it at 61 with 1:29 remaining.
