FORT WORTH, Texas — Garlon Green scored 20 points and TCU held on for a 62-55 upset of fifth-ranked Kansas in men’s college basketball Wednesday night for the Horned Frogs’ first Big 12 victory.
The Jayhawks (19-3, 7-2 Big 12), coming off a loss four days earlier against Oklahoma State, have their first losing streak in more than seven years.
They had played 264 games in a row since January 2006 without consecutive losses, the longest active streak in NCAA Division I.
TCU (10-12, 1-8) never trailed in the game, which marked the midpoint of its conference schedule in its first Big 12 season, also the first season for new coach Trent Johnson.
Kansas, which has won or shared 12 of the 16 regular-season Big 12 titles since the league started, didn’t score its first points until more than 7 minutes into the game. The Jayhawks finished with their fewest points in nearly six years.
No. 7 Arizona 73, Stanford 66: In Tucson, Ariz., Mark Lyons scored a season-high 25 points and led a key stretch in the second half for Arizona.
Arizona (20-2, 9-2 Pac-12) came out flat and needed most of the first half to catch the Cardinal. The Wildcats stayed close in a back-and-forth second half until Lyons took over.
Solomon Hill added 23 points and Angelo Chol gave Arizona a lift with Grant Jerrett out, grabbing eight rebounds.
Stanford (14-9, 5-5) dominated Arizona early and kept up with the Wildcats before fading under Arizona’s defensive pressure in the closing minutes.
Dwight Powell scored 18 of his 24 points in the second half and had 10 rebounds. Aaron Bright added 16 points for the Cardinal.
No. 11 Louisville 68, Rutgers 48: In Piscataway, N.J., Wayne Blackshear scored a career-high 19 points and hit a 3-pointer to ignite a 23-2 run early in the second half for Louisville.
Russ Smith added 14 points and six rebounds and fellow guard Peyton Siva had nine points and seven assists as the Cardinals (19-4, 7-3 Big East) won its third straight game by holding Rutgers to a season-low point total.
It was the seventh time they have held an opponent under 50 points this season.
Gorgui Deng added eight rebounds and six blocked shots as Louisville beat Rutgers for the seventh straight time and 11th in 12 meetings.
Eli Carter had 13 points and Myles Mack 12 to lead Rutgers (12-9, 3-7). The Scarlet Knights have lost five in a row and six of seven.
NO. 12 MICHIGAN STATE 61, NO. 18 MINNESOTA 50: In East Lansing, Mich., Gary Harris scored 15 points and Keith Appling added 14 points before leaving the game with an injury to help No. 12 Michigan State bounce back from a poor first half to beat No. 18 Minnesota 61-50 in men’s college basketball Wednesday night.
Appling left the court with 1:17 left, holding his right shoulder after getting tied up with Joe Coleman. He returned to the bench in the final minute.
The Spartans (19-4 8-2 Big Ten) moved into a second-place tie with No. 3 Michigan, whom they host Tuesday night. They picked up their eighth win in nine games since losing the conference opener against the Golden Gophers (17-6, 5-5) on the road.

Demitrius Conger led the Bonnies (10-11, 3-5) with 18 points. Chris Johnson and Marquise Simmons added nine points each for St. Bonaventure.
No. 15 New Mexico 81, Air Force 58: In Albuquerque, N.M., Jamal Fenton scored all five of his points in a late surge for New Mexico.
With New Mexico (20-3, 7-1 Mountain West) leading 57-51, Fenton started a 14-1 run with a time-clock beating, turnaround floater from the lane.
All five Lobos’ starters finished in double figures, with Tony Snell, Cameron Bairstow and Alex Kirk all scoring 14 points.
Bairstow added nine rebounds and Kirk had eight to help the Lobos control the boards with a 39-24 advantage, including 13-4 on the offensive side.
Those two players also helped New Mexico to a 30-16 scoring edge in the paint and a 14-2 edge on second-chance points.
Mike Fitzgerald and Michael Lyons each scored 16 points for the Falcons (14-7, 5-3).
Air Force used a 9-3 run, capped by a 3-pointer from Kyle Green with 9:15 remaining before New Mexico took off on its big run.
Indiana State 76, No. 16 Creighton 57: In Terre Haute, Ind., Jake Odum scored 22 points, topping the 1,000-point mark for his career and leading Indiana State past Creighton.
It was a huge night for the Sycamores (15-8, 8-4 Missouri Valley Conference), who earned the 1,400th win in school history and beat a ranked team at home for the first time since December 2006.
For Creighton (20-4, 9-3), it was a dismal night. Doug McDermott finished with just eight points, all in the first half, and the nation’s top shooting team was held to just 41.7 percent from the field as its three-game winning streak ended.
Indiana State took control late in the first half using runs of 12-2 and 7-2 to build a 35-24 halftime lead. It took control of the game with a 13-3 run to start the second half, which made it 48-27.
Creighton got no closer than 17 points the rest of the way.
Providence 54, No. 17 Cincinnati 50: In Providence, R.I., Kadeem Batts scored 25 points for Providence.
The Bearcats had cut their biggest deficit, 47-34 with 6:49 left, to 49-48 on two free throws by Cheikh Mbodj with 2:28 remaining. It was 52-50 when Batts missed two free throws with 13.4 seconds to go and Justin Jackson rebounded for Cincinnati. But Sean Kilpatrick, who led Cincinnati with 13 points, lost the ball on a backcourt violation with two seconds to play and Batts finished the scoring with two free throws.
On Saturday, Providence (12-11, 4-7 Big East) beat Villanova 55-52 on a 3-pointer by Bryce Cotton after blowing a nine-point lead with 4:34 left.

Marcus Smart scored 14 points and Markel Brown added 13 for Oklahoma State (16-5, 6-3 Big 12), which blew a 14-point lead in the final 7:40 of regulation and twice trailed by three points in overtime before extending its winning streak to four games.
Baylor (14-8, 5-4) had a chance to win in the final seconds of overtime, but Cobbins blocked a shot attempt by A.J. Walton under the basket, then raced to the other end and made the winning layup. Markel Brown intercepted a desperation inbound pass by Baylor’s Jacob Neubert to end the game.
No. 24 Marquette 70, South Florida 47: In Tampa, Fla., Todd Mayo and Vander Blue both scored 13 points for Marquette.
