No. 2 MICHIGAN 95, IOWA 67

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trey Burke had 19 points and a career-high 12 assists, part of another stellar offensive performance from No. 2 Michigan in a win over Iowa on Sunday.

Glenn Robinson III added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Wolverines, who had only 17 points with 7:00 remaining in the first half before overwhelming the Hawkeyes (11-4, 0-2 Big Ten) with a flurry of dunks, 3-pointers and other highlights. Michigan (15-0, 2-0) is a win away from matching the program’s best start to a season. The 1985-86 team began 16-0.

No. 6 KANSAS 69, TEMPLE 62

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kevin Young had 16 points, hitting four critical free throws down the stretch, and sixth-ranked Kansas fended off pesky Temple for the Jayhawks’ 11th straight win.

Travis Releford added 14 points on 5 for 5 shooting, none of his baskets bigger than a 3-pointer from the wing with 34.9 seconds left. With the shot-clock winding down, Releford’s shot gave Kansas a 65-58 lead, essentially turning away its Atlantic 10 foe.

Ben McLemore added 13 points and Jeff Withey had eight points, 11 rebounds and nine blocked shots for the Jayhawks (12-1), who enter Big 12 play having won 30 consecutive games at Allen Fieldhouse and 63 in a row against non-conference opponents.

Khalif Wyatt finished with 26 points for the Owls (10-3), who nearly had their second win over a top-10.

No. 7 SYRACUSE 55, SOUTH FLORIDA 44

TAMPA, Fla. — Brandon Triche had 20 points and James Southerland scored 12 of his 17 in the second half to help No. 7 Syracuse overcome a slow start and win its Big East road opener over South Florida.

C.J. Fair had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Orange (14-1, 2-0), who won for the fourth straight time following a four-point loss to Temple.

South Florida (9-4, 0-1) trimmed what had been an 11-point deficit to 47-42 with six minutes remaining, however the Bulls were held to one basket the rest of the way.

Southerland’s long 3-pointer put Syracuse up 50-42. Triche followed with a driving layup and a pair of free throws to push the lead back to double-digits.

No. 9 MINNESOTA 69, NORTHWESTERN 51

MINNEAPOLIS — Austin Hollins hit five 3-pointers during an impressive three-minute stretch in the second half, finishing with 19 points and sparking ninth-ranked Minnesota to a victory over Northwestern.

Hollins missed his career scoring high by one, collecting 17 points during a 26-7 run that gave the Gophers a 45-25 lead. Minnesota (14-1, 2-0 Big Ten) has won 10 in a row for its longest winning streak since it opened the 2008-09 season with 12 straight victories.

Dave Sobolewski had 10 points, five assists and four steals for the Wildcats (9-6, 0-2), who were out-rebounded 47-20.

No. 13 FLORIDA 79, YALE 58

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Kenny Boynton matched his career high with 28 points on 8-for-10 shooting from 3-point range and No. 13 Florida used a 26-3 run spanning the halves to beat Yale.

Will Yeguette had 14 points and Mike Rosario added 13 for the Gators (10-2), whose losses were to No. 3 Arizona and No. 25 Kansas State. The Gators shot 60 percent from the field for the game (30 for 50), including 9 of 17 from 3-point range.

Justin Sears had 15 points and Javier Duren added 14 for the Bulldogs (5-11), who have lost four of five.
