Reggie Johnson made a tie-breaking layup with 5.7 seconds left before Durand Scott added a pair of game-clinching free throws in the Hurricanes' 54-50 triumph against Virginia. Shane Larkin scored four of his team-high 11 points in the final 42 seconds as the Canes improved to 13-0 in the ACC with their 14th straight win.

Laurence Bowers had 17 points and 10 rebounds to help the Tigers improve to 15-0 at home. Phil Pressey added 10 assists, seven points, six rebounds and three steals as the Tigers dropped the Gators to 11-2 in the SEC.
In other top-25 action, Rotnei Clarke scored 16 points and Khyle Marshall added 14 as 15th-ranked Butler silenced Duquesne 68-49. Marshall contributed nine points during a 13-7 run that put the Bulldogs ahead 49-29 early in the second half.
No. 17 Marquette trounced Seton Hall 67-46 behind Vander Blue's 16 points. The Pirates actually led until the Golden Eagles scored 17 straight points over a 5:38 span of the second half.
