Swingman Anthony Brown scored a season-high 25 points and guard Chasson Randle added 22 to help the Stanford Cardinal upset No. 9 Texas 74-71 in overtime Tuesday night on the Longhorns’ home court.

It was Stanford’s first road victory against a top-10 team since 2008. Texas had been 7-0 at home before this loss.

Brown made all four of his 3-point shots in the game and his driving layup with 1:08 left in overtime gave Stanford (7-3) a one-point lead.

Texas guard Javan Felix then missed a 3-point shot, and Randle scored with 10 seconds left for the final points.

Felix, who led the Longhorns with 19 points, and Demarcus Holland missed difficult 3-point shots for Texas (10-2) in the closing seconds.

Texas’ Jonathan Holmes had forced the overtime by making a 15-foot jumper with 25 seconds left. That came after a Randle bucket with 56 seconds remaining had put the Cardinal up by two.

No. 4 Louisville 80, Cal State Northridge 55

Wayne Blackshear hit his first seven shots and scored a career-high 31 points to help Louisville to a victory on its home court.

Blackshear had scored just five points in Saturday’s game against Western Kentucky but made four 3-pointers while scoring 16 of Louisville’s first 21 points Tuesday.

The Cardinals (11-0) played without forward Montrezl Harrell, who was suspended for one game by the Atlantic Coast Conference for a flagrant-2 foul Saturday.

No. 7 Villanova 92, NJIT 67

Villanova overcame a seven-point second-half deficit to knock off the only Division I team without a conference.

Dylan Ennis scored 17 points and Ryan Arcidiacono had 16 for the host Wildcats (12-0), who matched their second best start in program history.

New Jersey Institute of Technology (5-8) stunned Michigan earlier this month and led Villanova 48-41 with 17:50 left in the game. But Villanova then went on a 20-3 run to take control.

No. 11 Wichita State 80, Hawaii 79 (OT)

Rashard Kelly grabbed an offensive rebound and made a short bank shot with 3.8 seconds left in overtime to enable Wichita State to beat Hawaii and reach the final of the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu.

Ron Baker led the Shockers (10-1) with 17 points, and added a key block in regulation to send the game into overtime.

The Shockers shot just 39.7 percent from the floor and made just six of 24 three-point shots.

No. 14 Utah 80, South Dakota State 66

Freshman Brekkott Chapman had a career-high 22 points to help the Utes to an easy win at home.

Point guard Delon Wright had 17 points, 10 assists and six rebounds for the Utes (9-2), who took command late in the first half.

South Dakota State (9-4) had a seven-game winning streak halted.
