(7) Wisconsin 89, (2) Pitt 75. Alando Tucker had his way with the once-thought formidable Pittsburgh interior, with 32 points and 10 boards. Brian Butch was masculine, too, with 27 and 11. Pitt was never really in the game in the second half as Wisconsin pushed its record to 11-1 and Pitt showed that maybe that #2 beside their was, well... a little optimistic.

Georgia 96, Gonzaga 83. The Zags turned the ball over 21 times, 10 more times than Georgia did... and then Mark Few sort of implied that 6-11 Gonzaga forward Josh Heytvelt a big softie. "He has no conviction to get the ball inside," Few said. "We're never going to get where we need to be if all he does is slide out to the 3-point line. We wanted to attack them inside. Josh took the easy road to shoot 3s." Make him practice in a pink skirt all week, coach.


(18) Butler 68, Purdue 65. Butler bounced back from a 72-64 loss to Indiana State to take down another big-conference team. Purdue, coming into the game at 8-1, is added to the list that includes Notre Dame, Indiana, Tennessee, and let's throw in Gonzaga (they're close enough). They should just rename the whole damn state Butler.

(4) Ohio State 72, Cincinnati 50. Oden Watch: His 14 points and 11 rebounds both led the Buckeyes, who closed the first half against Cincinnati on a 26-2 run. The halftime score was 42-14, which is about the same halftime score you might expect from an Ohio State vs. Cincinnati football game. Imagine what Oden's going to be like at full strength.
