LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Freshman Anthony Davis scored a career-high 28 points on 10-of-11 shooting, and No. 1 Kentucky beat Vanderbilt 83-74 on Saturday to win the Southeastern Conference regular season title for the 45th time.
The Wildcats (28-1, 14-0) have won 51 straight at home and are on a 20-game winning streak overall. But Kentucky trailed at halftime and needed a late surge to put away the scrappy Commodores.
Davis, who had 11 rebounds and five blocks, hit an 18-foot jumper as the shot clock expired with 1:06 left. Terrence Jones added a dunk, and Davis blocked Lance Goulbourne's shot with 31 seconds to go to put the game away.
Jeffery Taylor scored 19 points for Vanderbilt (20-9, 9-5), and John Jenkins added 15 of his 18 points in the second half.
NO. 5 DUKE 70, VIRGINIA TECH 65, OT
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Austin Rivers scored 23 points and Seth Curry added 19 for Duke.
Miles Plumlee added 15 rebounds and two free throws with 9.6 seconds left for the Blue Devils (25-4, 12-2), who made 6 of 8 foul shots in the final minute of overtime to win their sixth straight and remain atop the Atlantic Coast Conference standings.
Dorenzo Hudson, one of three players with 16 points for the Hokies (15-14, 4-10), pulled them to 64-63 with a deep jumper with 1:19 left in overtime.
Mason Plumlee's free throw with 51.1 seconds left made it a two-point game, and he had a hand in Hudson's face during his jumper that would have tied it.
After Rivers' free throw with 19.4 seconds left made it 66-63, Erick Green missed a layup and Miles Plumlee's free throws made it a five-point game.
Green and Cadarian Raines also scored 16 points for the Hokies, who were just 7 of 16 from the free throw line.
NO. 9 GEORGETOWN 67, VILLANOVA 46
WASHINGTON (AP) — Freshman Otto Porter had 15 points and six rebounds in his second start of the season and Jason Clark had 15 points and six rebounds for Georgetown.
The victory moves the Hoyas (21-6, 11-5) into sole possession of fourth place in the Big East, one-half game ahead of Cincinnati and South Florida, who play Sunday. The top four teams get a double-bye in the conference tournament
Dominic Cheek scored 19 points to lead the Wildcats (11-17, 4-12), who have lost four straight. Maalik Wayns returned for Villanova after missing three games with a sprained left knee, but he finished 1 for 10 from the field and had three points.
Villanova remained without guard James Bell, who missed his third straight game with a sprained left ankle.
The Hoyas outrebounded the Wildcats 43-25 to improve to 14-1 at home, while Villanova is 1-9 in true road games. Georgetown allowed the Wildcats to shoot just 28 percent, quite a turnaround from the 61 percent that Seton Hall shot in its 18-point win over the Hoyas on Tuesday.
NO. 13 BAYLOR 70, OKLAHOMA 60
WACO, Texas (AP) — Pierre Jackson scored 18 points, including the tiebreaking 3-pointer that started Baylor's game-deciding spurt.
The game was tied for the 12th time before Jackson's 3 put the Bears (24-5, 11-5 Big 12) up 49-46 with 10:48 left. That started a 13-2 run that was capped by consecutive 3-pointers by Brady Heslip, who had 16 points.
Jackson and Heslip both had four 3-pointers.
Quincy Miller had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Bears, whose 11th Big 12 victory matched the most in school history.
Steven Pledger had 21 points for Oklahoma (14-14, 4-12), which led 34-31 at halftime.
Oklahoma went 0 for 12 on 3-pointers, ending a streak of 510 consecutive games with at least one 3-pointer. Baylor, the league's top-shooting team from beyond the arc, has made a 3-pointer in 648 consecutive games.
NO. 19 WICHITA ST. 81, DRAKE 58
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Ben Smith scored 18 points to lead Wichita State.
Garrett Stutz added 15 points and Toure Murry chipped in 14 for Wichita State (26-4, 16-2), which had already clinched the Missouri Valley regular season championship.

Ben Simons scored 21 points, hitting seven 3-pointers, to lead the Bulldogs (16-14, 9-9).
Drake missed its first eight shots of the game, as Wichita State took a 12-1 lead. But that vanished once Simons hit four 3-pointers to close Drake within 15-13.
ST. JOHN'S 61, NO. 20 NOTRE DAME 58
NEW YORK (AP) — Moe Harkless had 22 points and nine rebounds to lead St. John's to its first win over a ranked team in 11 games this season.
D'Angelo Harrison added 15 points for St. John's (13-16, 6-10 Big East), while Amir Garrett had 11, including the drive that gave the Red Storm a 61-58 lead with 8.9 seconds to play.
Scott Martin and Jack Cooley both had 18 points for the Fighting Irish (20-9, 12-4), who had won a program-record nine straight conference games. Alex Dragevich missed a 3-point attempt at the buzzer for Notre Dame, which shot a season-worst 4 for 31 from 3-point range (12.9 percent). The Fighting Irish could have moved into a tie for second place in the Big East with No. 10 Marquette.
