The amount of upsets in college basketball are either really exciting for fans, or really disappointing as their trust in the AP Polls begins to fade away. There were two other top-10 upsets on Wednesday, beginning with SMU hanging on for an 83-78 win over seventh-ranked Wichita State. Shake Milton hit five three-pointers during a career-best 33-point performance in the win. The Mustangs finished shooting 63 percent from the floor, earning their first win since December 31st, which spanned three games. It was their first road win over a top-10 team since January 1982 against then No. 10 Houston. The loss for the Shockers snaps a 27-game home win streak, as they had won 67 of 68 on their home floor. Jahmal McMurray added 16 points, as SMU moved their conference record to .500 at 3-3. Landry Shamet's double-double of 20 points and 10 assists was not enough for the Shockers in their first conference loss, and third defeat overall. They will look to bounce back on Saturday afternoon when they visit unranked Houston. The Mustangs will return home that same day to host Tulane Green Wave,
Texas Takes Down Texas Tech
The Texas Tech Red Raiders remained in the top 10 this week due to the other top-10 teams' inability to secure their spots in the rankings. There's no doubt that they will drop out this upcoming week as the eighth-ranked team fell to Texas on the road Wednesday night, 67-58. Kerwin Roach II had 20 points in his return to the starting lineup, which sparked the Longhorns to their third Big 12 win. It was the second victory over a ranked team this week for the Longhorns, who shot 51 percent from the floor, including 40 percent from beyond the arc. Texas was coming off a double-overtime win over No. 16 TCU, and were once again powered by freshman Mo Bamba. The young star came off a big performance in the win last Wednesday and put up 15 points, 11 rebounds, and five blocks in this upset victory. Eric Davis Jr. was big down the stretch with two clutch three-pointers, staying hot after averaging 20 points in the last two games. The Red Raiders fell to 4-2 in conference play, and were led by Jarrett Culver's 16 points in the loss. They will be on the road on Saturday against Iowa State. The Longhorns will battle another top-10 team in sixth-ranked West Virginia that same day.
Warriors Extend Road Win Streak in Chicago
The Golden State Warriors may be the one team in NBA history that would rather not have home-court advantage in the playoffs, just basing it off their road success. They won for a 14th straight time on the road Wednesday night, 119-112, over the Chicago Bulls. They made half of their shots on the night powered by the Splash Brothers, as Klay Thompson had 38 points and Steph Curry added 30. The road win streak is a franchise record for the Warriors, who is 21-3 away from Oracle Arena this season. Kevin Durant had a productive night of 19 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists, as they now sit with the third-longest road win streak in NBA history. The Los Angeles Lakers' 16-game win streak away from home in the 1971-72 season is still good for the all-time record. Nikola Mirotic had 24 points in the loss for the Bulls, who fell to 14-8 since their dismal 3-20 start to the season. The Warriors will take their 37-9 record and their impressive road win streak into a primetime showdown in Houston against the Rockets on Saturday night. The Bulls will be in Atlanta earlier that day against the Hawks.
