BOSTON (AP) With just over a minute left and No. 11 Florida State rapidly closing the gap, an unlikely contributor popped onto the court to help Boston College hold on for a victory.

Running back AJ Dillon, the Atlantic Coast Conference's preseason football player of the year, got out of his courtside seat and wiped down the floor while the teams lined up for a free throw, drawing a chuckle and a cheer from the crowd.

"We needed all hands on deck," coach Jim Christian said after the Eagles upset the Seminoles 87-82, the third time in two seasons BC has beaten a ranked team in Chestnut Hill. "Could have used him in the post."


No. 15 Marquette rallies past Providence

MILWAUKEE (AP) Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski didn't like the first half. He felt much better about the second.

Sam Hauser scored 25 points, Markus Howard added 24 points and a career-high nine rebounds and No. 15 Marquette rallied past Providence 79-68 on Sunday.


No. 23 Iowa routs Illinois, run hits 5

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Midway through the second half, an Iowa fan won a half-court challenge with a swish at the buzzer.

The Hawkeyes' hot shooting must have been contagious.


Torn ACL ends Florida F Stone's season

GAINESVILE, Fla. (AP) Florida forward Keith Stone will have season-ending surgery after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee at Georgia.

No. 1 Duke sends No. 4 UVa to first loss

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) No. 1 Duke and fourth-ranked Virginia kept trading baskets - and the lead - down the stretch of another classic at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Here's the difference: The Blue Devils had RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson and a defense that -even without key on-the-ball defender Tre Jones- flipped the script on the Cavaliers.


Wisconsin hands No. 2 Michigan 1st loss

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Ethan Happ and the Wisconsin Badgers finally closed out a tight game. Against No. 2 Michigan, too.

Happ had 26 points and 10 rebounds as Wisconsin handed the Wolverines their first loss of the season, breaking away in the final minute for a 64-54 victory Saturday.


WVU stuns No. 7 Kansas on late layup

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Kansas coach Bill Self left his postgame news conference, saw West Virginia's Bob Huggins down a hallway and stopped for a handshake.

"Go win the rest of them," Self said.


No. 3 Vols survive upset-minded Alabama

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee did its part with a walk-off win of sorts against Alabama.

Enough for a No. 1 ranking? All the Volunteers can do now is sit and wait.


Baylor knocks off No. 8 Texas Tech

WACO, Texas (AP) Freshman guard Jared Butler was a late arrival at Baylor. The top recruit originally chose Alabama and began last summer there, before he got his release, and a waiver to play somewhere else this season.

Butler is now starting and getting comfortable in the Big 12.


No. 5 Gonzaga rolls to 9th straight win

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Rui Hachimura said it felt like Gonzaga was a bit hurried in the first half against struggling Portland before settling down for a more typical Bulldog win.

"Before the second half, we talked about passing more and using our teammates. I think the second half we did pretty well with ball movement," the 6-foot-8 sophomore said.
