NC State was game against West Virginia but dropped an 83-69 decision in the second game of the Gotham Classic Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.

North Carolina coach Roy Williams spent the week being mean, in his words – the 24th-ranked Tar Heels responded with a 82-74 victory against No. 12 Ohio State in the CBS Sports Classic at the United Center in Chicago.

A second-half rally by the Charlotte 49ers came up short in an 81-78 loss against Georgetown on Saturday at the Verizon Center.

Following Davidson’s convincing 80-68 victory over the College of Charleston at TD Arena on Saturday, Bob McKillop’s Wildcats are now 9-1 – their best start to a season during McKillop’s tenure.

Florida Gators guard Michael Frazier II needed 14 stitches in his forehead following a bloody collision with an opponent in the first half of the Orange Bowl Classic.
