Freshman Zak Irvin scored all 16 of his points in the first half, and No. 10 Michigan breezed to a 79-50 victory over visiting Nebraska on Wednesday night.

The Wolverines (17-5, 9-1 Big Ten) were coming off their first conference defeat, a 63-52 loss at Indiana on Sunday. They nearly matched that scoring total with a 49-point first half against the Cornhuskers (11-10, 3-6). Glenn Robinson III led Michigan with 23 points, and Caris LeVert added 16 points and seven rebounds. Nik Stauskas had nine points and eight assists. Shavon Shields scored 13 for Nebraska.

No. 13 Saint Louis 65, Saint Joseph’s 49: At Philadelphia, Rob Loe scored 17 points and Jordair Jett had 10 points and seven assists as the Billikens (21-2, 8-0 Atlantic 10) set a team-record 15th straight win. Ronald Roberts Jr. scored 19 for the Hawks (15-7, 5-3).

No. 20 Virginia 77, Boston College 67: At Charlottesville, Va., Malcolm Brogdon had 17 points, a career-best 11 rebounds and seven assists while Anthony Gill and Justin Anderson added 13 points each for the Cavaliers (18-5, 9-1 Atlantic Coast Conference). Virginia led 40-21 at halftime. Ryan Anderson scored 20 for the Eagles (6-16, 2-7).

West Virginia 91, No. 21 Oklahoma 86, OT: At Morgantown, W. Va., Eron Harris scored 26 of his 28 points after halftime while Juwan Staten added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Mountaineers (14-9, 6-4 Big 12). Harris forced overtime with a 3-pointer with 20 seconds left in regulation and scored six points in the extra period. Jordan Woodward led the Sooners (17-6, 6-4) with 23 points.

No. 25 Pittsburgh 59, Miami 55, OT: At Coral Gables, Fla., Lamar Patterson scored 25 points for Pittsburgh (19-4, 7-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). Rion Brown had 21 for Miami (11-11, 2-7).

Arizona: The Wildcats could handle their first loss of the season, falling 60-58 Saturday at California. But also losing Brandon Ashley will put a dent in the national title hopes of No. 2 Arizona (21-1, 8-1 Pac-12). Ashley injured his right foot going up for a rebound and faces the possibility of surgery. Ashley was getting 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds per game and was one of the Wildcats’ most versatile defenders. Freshman Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, a strong defender, is expected to take Ashley’s starting spot with 3-point specialist Gabe York moving into the sixth man role.
