NO. 9 BAYLOR 79, WEST VIRGINIA 65
WACO, Texas (AP) – LJ Cryer scored 26 points to lead four players in double figures, and Baylor won its fourth straight game.
Cryer was 8 for 11 from 3-point range to lead the Bears (20-6, 9-4 Big 12), who have won 10 of their last 11 after an 0-3 start in the conference.
Adam Flagler added 13 points and Jalen Bridges had 12 for Baylor, which shot 51% from the floor and was 14 for 27 from 3-point range. Keyonte George led the Bears with nine rebounds and seven assists.

NO. 15 MIAMI 80, NORTH CAROLINA 72
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) – Jordan Miller had 24 points and 11 rebounds as Miami took over after halftime then had to hold off a late rally by North Carolina.
Nijel Pack added 23 points for the Hurricanes (21-5, 12-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), who led by just one at halftime but shot 52% after the break while locking down on UNC’s drivers who had found success getting to the rim in the first 20 minutes. The combination helped Miami stretch out the lead to as many as 14 points, with Miller and Pack leading the way from either behind the arc or with Miller’s nifty moves inside.
R.J. Davis scored 23 points while Caleb Love had 20 for UNC (16-10, 8-7), which shot 43.9%. But the Tar Heels continued their season-long struggles with their outside shooting, missing 26 of 31 3-pointers for the game.
