MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -Bryce Taylor scored 11 of his 18 points after halftime, and Maarty Leunen had 14 points and 14 rebounds to help No. 17 Oregon hold off No. 25 Kansas State 80-77 in overtime Thursday night.
Oregon had never faced a ranked nonconference opponent on the road in its 105-year history, and this was the first time in five years it had faced a ranked opponent outside the Pac-10.
Kansas State hadn't faced a ranked nonconference opponent at home since 2000, and Manhattan hadn't seen two ranked teams on the same court since No. 1 Missouri beat 14th-ranked Kansas State by one in 1982.
Oregon (6-1) hit big shots down the stretch of regulation and overpowered the Wildcats in overtime. Joevan Catron had 15 points and Tajuan Porter added 14 for the Ducks.
Kansas State (5-2) was able to slow down the high-scoring Ducks, but struggled from the perimeter - 8-for-27 from 3-point range - and missed four free throws in overtime, finishing 5-of-12 from the line.
Freshman Michael Beasley had 24 points and 14 rebounds for Kansas State and Andre Gilbert added 16 points.
No. 19 Gonzaga 70, Saint Joseph's 65, OT
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Matt Bouldin scored 16 points, including a 3-pointer late in regulation to spur a comeback and the go-ahead free throws in overtime, for Gonzaga.
Austin Daye scored 17 points and David Pendergraft had 13 for the Bulldogs (6-1).
Pat Calathes led the Hawks (3-2) with 24 points and Ahmad Nivins scored 14. The Hawks battled back from a 17-point deficit in the first half to take the lead late in the second.
Nivins missed two free throws with 1:32 left in overtime and the game tied at 61.
Bouldin made both of his attempts from the line on the next possession and Daye pumped his fist when his jumper gave the Bulldogs a four-point lead.
With Gonzaga leading by two points and 30 seconds left in regulation, Jeremy Pargo was called for an offensive foul. Tasheed Carr, a 55 percent free-throw shooter, made two from the line that tied the game at 59-all with 10.3 seconds to go.
