NORMAN, Okla. — Trae Young fell one rebound short of a triple-double to help No. 7 Oklahoma defeat Oklahoma State 109-89 on Wednesday night.
Young, the nation’s leader in scoring and assists, finished with 27 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds. In just his 13th career game, the freshman became the first Oklahoma player to score at least 20 points in 12 straight games.
Freshman forward Brady Manek scored a season-high 28 points and Kameron McGusty added 15 for Oklahoma (12-1, 2-0 Big 12), which won its 10th straight.
It was the first time Oklahoma scored at least 100 points against Oklahoma State since 1990. The Sooners, who entered the night leading the nation in scoring, shot 54 percent from the field to improve on their 94.7-point average.
Thomas Dziagwa scored a career-high 19 points and Jeffrey Carroll added 15 points and 10 rebounds for Oklahoma State (10-4, 0-2).
No. 8 VIRGINIA 78, VIRGINIA TECH 52
BLACKSBURG, Va. — De’Andre Hunter scored 14 points and Virginia put the defensive clamps on Virginia Tech.
Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy added 13 points each and Devon Hall had 12 for the Cavaliers (13-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who ended a two-game losing streak in Cassell Coliseum.
Kerry Blackshear Jr. had 14 points to lead the Hokies (11-4, 0-2). Virginia Tech came into the game leading the nation in field goal percentage at .532 and among the leaders in 3-point percentage at .427, but they made only 17 of 47 shots and were just 2 of 12 from 3-point territory.
No. 24 FLORIDA STATE 81, No. 12 NORTH CAROLINA 80
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Braian Angola scored 20 points and C.J. Walker added 18 for Florida State.
The Seminoles (12-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) led most of the game but almost squandered it as they didn’t make a field goal in the last 2:57 and missed their last four free throws.
They were up 81-77 on Angola’s free throw before Joel Berry II made a 3-pointer off a turnover to bring the Tar Heels within 81-80 with 30 seconds remaining. After Phil Cofer missed both free throws, North Carolina (12-3, 1-1) had a chance to win. Berry drove the lane and missed a jumper which was rebounded by Terance Mann. Mann missed his free throws with 1.7 seconds remaining but North Carolina’s last second desperation 3 was no good, allowing Florida State to snap a seven-game losing streak to the Tar Heels.
Mann added 17 points and nine rebounds as Florida State extended its home winning streak to 28, which is currently the third-longest in Division I.
Berry led the Tar Heels with 28 points and Williams added 18.
No. 13 PURDUE 82, RUTGERS 51
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Isaac Haas scored 14 points and Dakota Mathias finished with 13 for Purdue.
The Boilermakers (14-2, 3-0 Big Ten) have won 10 straight overall and 17 consecutive home games.

GEORGIA TECH 64, No. 15 MIAMI 54
ATLANTA — Josh Okogie scored a season-high 30 points and Jose Alvarado added 12 points for Georgia Tech.
Dewan Huell, with 13 points, was the only player to score in double figures for Miami (12-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference). Anthony Lawrence and Bruce Brown each had nine points as the Hurricanes snapped a two-game winning streak.
No. 17 KENTUCKY 74, LSU 71
BATON ROUGE, La. — P.J. Washington scored 14 of his 18 points in the second half for Kentucky.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander capped his 18-point night with two free throws with 16 seconds left, and Kevin Knox had 16 points and 11 rebounds for the Wildcats (12-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference), who survived their first true road test this season.
Duop Reath had 24 points and 11 rebounds for LSU (9-4, 0-1), which missed two 3-point attempts that could have tied it in the final seconds.
No. 25 CLEMSON 74, BOSTON COLLEGE 70
BOSTON — Donte Grantham scored 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, and Marcquise Reed hit two key free throws for Clemson in its first game in the national rankings in nearly eight years.
