WASHINGTON (AP) -Jonathan Wallace, fouled in the backcourt by Corey Stokes with one-tenth of a second remaining, sank both free throws to give the No. 8 Georgetown Hoyas a 55-53 victory Monday night, their first home win over the Villanova Wildcats in more than a decade.
Wallace came up with the loose ball - a rarity on a night when Georgetown was outhustled and outrebounded - in a mad scramble after Scottie Reynolds turned the ball over in traffic while Villanova was holding for the last shot. Wallace started to dribble and was slightly bumped by Stokes, who became the fourth player to foul out in a game that was marred by 48 fouls.
Wallace scored 15 points for the Hoyas (20-3, 10-2 Big East), who have won seven of eight and bounced back from a loss at Louisville on Saturday. Georgetown blew a 12-point second-half lead and scored only two field goals over the final eight minutes.
Villanova (14-9, 4-7) with 24 points, but he went only 1-for-6 from the field in the second half. Still, his night wasn't nearly as bad as that of teammate Corey Fisher, who went 1-for-16 for the game.
No. 11 Texas 72, No. 3 Kansas 69
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Damion James scored 12 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the second half, and Texas held off Kansas in yet another thrilling matchup in a rivalry that has quickly escalated into one of the best in the Big 12.
James missed most of the first half with foul trouble, then provided the muscle Texas (20-4, 7-2 Big 12 ) needed to counter the Jayhawks' size and strength under the basket.
James finished with 14 points. Connor Atchely led Texas with 16 points and A.J. Abrams added 14 points.
Darrell Arthur scored 22 to lead the Jayhawks (23-2, 8-2), who lost for just the second time in 33 regular season games dating back to last season. Mario Chalmers added 13 points for Kansas but missed a final 3-pointer in the final second that would have sent the game into overtime.
