WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Tomas Woldetensae scored a career-high 21 points and Virginia got a final-play defensive stop to beat Wake Forest 65-63 in overtime on Sunday. Woldetensae scored all his points on seven 3-pointers, including the go-ahead 3 with 3:55 left in overtime. Wake Forest had a final possession to tie, calling timeout with the ball with 8.2 seconds left. But Olivier Sarr tried a desperation contested drive and failed to even get off a tying shot off before the buzzer to end it. Andrien White scored 21 points to lead the Demon Deacons, who didn't have injured top scorer Brandon Childress.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The two teams came into the Yum Center heading in opposite directions, and a 14-0 first quarter run for the Cardinals (20-1, 9-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) ensured they continued on their respective paths. Louisville won its 12th straight, while the Panthers (3-16, 0-8) suffered their 12th straight loss. Dana Evans, Kylee Shook, Bionca Dunham and Elizabeth Balogun all had 12 each for the Cardinals. Jazmine Jones added 11, and Elizabeth Dixon pitched in 10 off the bench. It’s the most the Cardinals have had in one game this season.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Kiah Gillespie scored 18 points on 8-of-9 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds to help No. 14 Florida State defeat Miami 79-61. Florida State closed the first quarter with a 7-0 run to grab an 18-10 lead. The Hurricanes battled back behind a couple of 3-pointers from Kelsey Marshall, the second tying the game at 22. But from there the Seminoles outscored Miami 18-4 for a 40-26 lead at the half. The lead never dipped below 11 after that stretch where the Çanes made just 1 of 10 shots. Mitchell hit five 3-pointers and scored 21 points for Miami
