A night of upsets

UNDATED (AP) - There were six top-25 men's basketball teams in action on Thursday. The only ranked team to come away with a victory was No. 7 Louisville.


     Duquesne was just 11-15 overall and 3-10 in the Atlantic 10 until Micah Mason had 22 points and Jerry Jones added 19 to lead the Dukes past No. 10 Saint Louis 71-64, snapping the Billikens' school-record, 19-game winning streak. The Dukes took command with an 18-2 run capped by a 3-pointer and then a layup by Jones that made it 53-44 with 7:41 left.


     Coty Clarke scored seven of his 11 points in overtime as Arkansas upset No. 17 Kentucky 71-67 to complete a season sweep. Michael Qualls had a team-high 14 points for the Razorbacks after beating the Wildcats with a last-second dunk in overtime six weeks ago.


     No. 20 Iowa suffered its third straight loss as Will Sheehey scored 19 of his career-high 30 points in the first half of Indiana's 93-86 triumph over the Hawkeyes in Bloomington. Sanford Robinson added a career-best 17 in a game that was postponed last week.


     Danuel House had 19 points and Houston closed on a 14-5 spurt to beat No. 21 Memphis 77-68. TaShawn Thomas added 16 points and seven rebounds for the Cougars, who scored 21 points off the Tigers' 14 turnovers.


     D.J. Newbill scored 23 points and Tim Frazier added 16 to lead Penn State past No. 22 Ohio State 65-63. The Buckeyes are 9-7 in the Big Ten after getting swept by the Nittany Lions in the season series.


     The Cardinals had no trouble winning their game as Russ Smith, Montrezl Harrell and freshman Terry Rozier combined for 64 points in Louisville's 88-66 pounding of Temple. Smith delivered 24 points, Harrell had 21 and Rozier scored a career-high 19 in the Cardinals' seventh straight win.
