No. 4 Syracuse 57,
Maryland 55

Syracuse blew most of a 12-point lead in the last 8 minutes and used one final defensive stop to squeeze past host Maryland on Monday night and end a two-game losing streak. It was another close call for the Orange (26-2, 13-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), whose previous four games were decided by a total of 12 points. Syracuse led 49-37 with 7:54 left but allowed Maryland (15-13, 7-8) to close to 56-55 with 47 seconds remaining.

No. 5 Kansas 83, Oklahoma 75

Naadir Tharpe had 19 points to lead five Kansas players in double figures, and the Jayhawks held off visiting Oklahoma to wrap up a share of their 10th consecutive Big 12 championship. Wayne Selden and Andrew Wiggins added 15 points each, and Joel Embiid had 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Jayhawks (22-6, 13-2). Cameron Clark had 18 points and Buddy Hield finished with 16 for the Sooners (20-8, 9-6).
