CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — D.J. Funderburk scored 14 points before fouling out and North Carolina State overcame a second-half scoring drought of more than 10 minutes in a 53-51 victory against Virginia. C.J. Bryce added 13 points for the Wolfpack, including a jumper with 27 seconds left after allowing the shot clock to race to near 0:00. That made it 52-47.

UNDATED (AP) — Baylor leaped over Gonzaga and into the No. 1 spot in The Associated Press men's college basketball poll to give the Top 25 its seventh team on top this season. That matches the record set in 1983 for the most No. 1s in the history of the poll that dates to the 1948-49 season. Baylor received 33 first-place votes from the 65-member media panel and had 1,591 points. Gonzaga received 31 first-place votes for 1,588 points. Kansas, undefeated San Diego State and Florida State replaced Duke, Auburn and Butler in the top five after those three schools each lost a pair of games last week.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Former Houston quarterback D'Eriq King says he has committed to Miami. He'll be eligible right away and is a significant get for the Hurricanes as they try to bounce back from a 6-7 season. King played in four games for Houston this past season before announcing in late September that he would take the rest of 2019 off and redshirt to preserve eligibility for 2020. King had at least one rushing touchdown and at least one passing touchdown in each of his last 15 games with Houston. Miami landed another graduate transfer in former Temple defensive end Quincy Roche. Roche had 49 tackles and 13 sacks last season for the Owls.
