Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Ethan Wragge netted a career-high 27 points, Doug McDermott scored 23 and unranked Creighton shocked No. 4 Villanova with a 96-68 drubbing on Monday. Wragge hit 9-of-14 from behind the arc, matching Kyle Korver's school record for three-pointers in a game set in 2003, as Creighton (16-3, 6-1 Big East) broke a conference record with 21 treys in the rout. This was Creighton's third win over a top-5 team in program history McDermott added five triples and Jahennis Manigat had four en route to a career-best 19 points for the Bluejays, who came back stronger than ever after their first conference loss on Saturday at Providence. Austin Chatman had 10 assists in the triumph. James Bell paced Villanova (16-2, 5-1) with 19 points, while JayVaughn Pinkston and Darrun Hilliard contributed 11 and 10, respectfully.

Final Score: Nebraska 68, (17) Ohio State 62

Lincoln, NE (SportsNetwork.com) - Ohio State is suddenly mired in its longest losing streak in nearly six years after being ranked No. 3 in the country two weeks ago. Nebraska sent the now-17th-ranked Buckeyes to a fourth straight loss in a surprising 68-62 final at Pinnacle Bank Arena behind Shavon Shields' 18-point, nine-rebound effort. Terran Petteway also scored 18 points for the Cornhuskers (9-8, 1-4 Big Ten), who shot 15-of-18 from the free throw line down the stretch to snap a five-game skid and earn their first win over the Buckeyes since joining the Big Ten. Ohio State (15-4, 2-4) rolled over Nebraska, 84-53, on Jan. 4 but has struggled to find any success since, especially offensively. They shot just 39.6 percent from the field in the latest setback, this following a 35.3 percent showing in a loss to Minnesota last Thursday. Aaron Craft netted a team-high 12 points.

Final Score: (8) Kansas 78, (24) Baylor 68

Lawrence, KS (SportsNetwork.com) - Perry Ellis poured in 18 points in eighth- ranked Kansas' 78-68 win over No. 24 Baylor in a Big 12 clash between teams trending in opposite directions. Andrew Wiggins made 10-of-12 from the foul line and scored 17 for Kansas (14-4, 5-0 Big 12), which capped a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents unscathed. The Jayhawks have won five in a row and eight of nine overall. Baylor (13-5, 1-4) meanwhile has dropped four of five after entering conference play with a 12-1 mark, which included a Dec. 6 victory over then third-ranked Kentucky. Brady Heslip hit six 3-pointers en route to a game-high 19 points while Isaiah Austin and Cory Jefferson donated 16 points apiece in the setback.
