Final Score: (2) Kansas 70, (9) Georgia Tech 68 (OT)

Lawrence, KS (Sports Network) – Keith Langford scored a team-high 18 points,
including the game-winning bucket with 3.3 seconds remaining in overtime, as
second-ranked Kansas rallied from a 16-point deficit to hand No. 9 Georgia
Tech a 70-68 loss in a heavily anticipated nonleague matchup. Langford netted
16 of his 18 points after halftime as Kansas (9-0) remained unbeaten and
gained a measure of revenge against the Yellow Jackets, who knocked the
Jayhawks out of the NCAA Tournament with a 79-71 overtime victory last season.
Leading Georgia Tech (9-2) were Jarrett Jack with a game-high 26 points, and
Luke Schenscher, who netted 10 points to go along with six boards and three
blocked shots.

Final Score: (18) Alabama 68, New Orleans 57

Tuscaloosa, AL (Sports Network) – Earnest Shelton scored 14 points to lead
three Alabama players in double figures, as the 18th-ranked Crimson Tide
remained unbeaten at home with a 68-57 victory over the New Orleans Privateers
in a non-conference contest at Coleman Coliseum. Shelton connected on 4-of-11
field goal attempts and hit five free throws as Alabama improved to 11-2,
including a perfect 7-0 mark at home. Bo McCalebb scored a game-high 26
points, including 16 after halftime, to lead New Orleans (5-8), which had its
two-game win streak snapped.
