CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Peter Jok scored 23 points and Jarrod Uthoff added 18 points and 12 rebounds to lead No. 5 Iowa past Illinois 77-65 on Sunday.

Jok took over early in the second half, scoring seven of the first 10 points for Hawkeyes (19-4, 10-1 Big Ten) and led them to a 48-36 lead with 16:48 to play.

Iowa would push the lead to as many as 20 points midway through the half.

Adam Woodbury added 10 points and 14 rebounds for the Hawkeyes.

Iowa outrebounded the Illini 43-32. Illinois (11-13, 3-8) has been outrebounded in 10 of its 11 conference games.

Jalen Coleman-Lands led Illinois with 17 points, going 5 of 11 from 3-point range.

No. 12 SMU 92, SOUTH FLORIDA 58

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Shake Milton scored 22 points and Nic Moore added 17 for SMU, which rebounded from its second loss of the season.

The Mustangs (20-2, 9-2 American Athletic Conference) shrugged off a three-point road loss to Houston by matching their season high with 14 3-pointers and shooting 60 percent overall. They never trailed, scoring the game’s first 11 points. SMU hit its last six shots before halftime and then opened the second half with an 8-0 run to build their lead to 30 points.

Jahmal McMurray led South Florida (5-20, 2-10) with 18 points.

SMU, which had lost two straight on the road, has matched the best 22-game start in school history. The Mustangs won 26 of their first 28 games before finishing 26-4 in 1955-56.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Dillon Brooks had 30 points and nine assists, both career highs, to lead Oregon.

Chris Boucher added 15 points and Elgin Cook had 12 for the Ducks (20-4, 9-2 Pac-12), who won their sixth consecutive game and 22nd straight at home, one shy of the school record.

Brooks, who had the first 30-point game for Oregon this season, had six rebounds.

Kyle Kuzma led the Utes (17-7, 6-5) with 18 points, and Jordan Loveridge had 16 points and 10 rebounds.

No. 17 MIAMI 75, GEORGIA TECH 68

ATLANTA (AP) - Sheldon McClellan scored 22 points and Ja’Quan Newton hit a huge 3-pointer to lead Miami to its fifth win in six games.

The Hurricanes (18-4, 7-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) were clinging to a 63-60 lead with the shot clock running down when Newton hit a desperation shot from the corner with 1:49 remaining.

Georgia Tech (12-11, 2-8) lost another tight one in the ACC. All eight of its conference defeats have been by less than 10 points.

Marcus Georges-Hunt scored 19 points to lead the Yellow Jackets.

Miami made nine straight free throws in the final minute to seal the victory.
