LAWRENCE, Kan. — Jeff Withey had 16 points, 12 rebounds and a school-record 12 blocks for only the second official triple-double in Kansas history, and the 10th-ranked Jayhawks held off a furious comeback by San Jose State for a 70-57 victory Monday night.
Withey scored 10 points during a 20-2 run early in the second half, and achieved the Jayhawks' first triple-double since Cole Aldrich in an NCAA tournament game against Dayton in 2010 when the 7-footer blocked Xavier Jones' shot with 7:43 left in the game.
Kansas (5-1) used its big run to take a 60-36 lead with just over 11 minutes remaining, but the Spartans (2-3) answered with an 18-2 run to climb back in the game.
The Jayhawks finally put it away when Elijah Johnson hit a floater with just over a minute left for a 66-57 lead.
James Kinney scored 19 of his 30 points in the second half for the Spartans.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Jerian Grant scored 22 points to lead red-hot Notre Dame to a 92-65 win over Chicago State on Monday night.
The Irish (6-1) took a 51-32 lead into the break, thanks largely to their blistering accuracy from 3-point land. They hit 10 of 16 3-point attempts in the first half, a 62.5-percent clip.
Scott Martin and Cameron Biedscheid each hit 3 of 5 3-point attempts for the Irish. They finished 12 of 22, or 55 percent, from behind the arc, and 61 percent overall.
Grant hit a strong baseline drive and drew a foul, then made the free throw, to give Notre Dame its then-biggest lead, 42-27, with 3:20 to go in the half. Moments later, he stole an inbound pass near the top of the Chicago State key and drove the length of the floor for an electrifying windmill dunk. Clarke Rosenberg led the Cougars (1-6) with 16 points.
MILWAUKEE — Jamil Wilson played another brilliant game Monday in leading Marquette to a 79-46 victory over Maryland-Baltimore County.
Wilson finished with 15 points for the Golden Eagles (5-1), and has now shot 14 of 17, or 82.4 percent, in his last two games. In Marquette's 72-64 victory over USC on Wednesday, the junior forward had a career-high 19 points.
The Golden Eagles' second-leading scorer, Vander Blue, did not play because of a knee injury.
That didn't stop Marquette from using a 37-5 run in the second half. The Golden Eagles shot 71.4 percent in the final 20 minutes.
Davante Gardner, Marquette's leading scorer, finished with 13 points and five steals.
LUBBOCK, Texas — Jaye Crockett scored 20 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead Texas Tech to an 84-75 win over Jackson State Monday night.
Crockett, who has been the Red Raiders' high scorer the past three games, got into early foul trouble but helped revive the offense late in the first half.
Dejan Kravic had 16 points and eight rebounds for the Red Raiders (4-0), while Josh Gray and Jamal Williams Jr. each added 12 points.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Jarnell Stokes scored 19 points and went 7-of-8 from the floor Monday as Tennessee relied on suffocating defense to roll to a 77-50 victory over cold-shooting Oakland.
Oakland shot just 28.6 percent (16-of-56) overall and went 2-of-16 from 3-point range. The Golden Grizzlies (2-5) were coming off a 70-52 loss at Michigan State on Friday in which they shot 27.6 percent (16-of-58), their worst field-goal percentage since joining the Division I ranks in 1999.
Trae Golden added 18 points and seven assists with only one turnover for the Volunteers (4-1). Tennessee shot 52.8 percent (28-of-53) overall and 71 percent (22-of-31) from inside the 3-point arc.
