January 22, 1992|From Associated Press

There's something about Knoxville that brings out the worst in Kentucky. The No. 8 Wildcats lost there for the 16th time in their last 21 visits when Tennessee upset them, 107-85, in a Southeastern Conference game Tuesday night.

Allan Houston scored 36 points and Carlus Groves added 23 for the Volunteers (10-6, 3-2).

Jamal Mashburn led Kentucky (14-3, 4-1) with 28 points before fouling out with 3 1/2 minutes remaining.

No. 4 Indiana 89, No. 16 Michigan 74--Once a fabulous freshman himself, Damon Bailey showed Michigan's five rookies that getting older means getting better.

Bailey, the Big Ten freshman of the year in 1991, scored 22 points and keyed a decisive 10-0 second-half run at Bloomington, Ind.

The victory was Indiana's 12th in a row and gave the Hoosiers (14-2) a 5-0 Big Ten record.

Bailey converted eight of 10 free throws, grabbed five rebounds and tied teammate Chris Reynolds with five assists.

Calbert Cheaney, who also scored 22 points, made eight of 11 free throws as the Hoosiers went to the line 50 times, an Assembly Hall record.

Michigan is 10-4, 2-3.

No. 1 Duke 95, Boston University 85--Christian Laettner scored 25 points to lead the Blue Devils at Boston.

Trailing 85-61 with 7:45 left, the Terriers (5-8) went on a 24-9 run capped by Mark Daly's three-point basket, but there were only 19 seconds left and they ran out of time.

Duke (13-0) made 36 of 56 foul shots. The 6-foot-11 Laettner made 15 of 20, including all 10 in the first half.

Villanova 70, No. 20 Syracuse 60--Chris Walker scored 17 points at Philadelphia as the Wildcats (7-7, 5-1) took over first place in the Big East.

No. 21 Tulane 87, Virginia Commonwealth 85--Freshman guard Pointer Williams scored seven of his 14 points in overtime as the Green Wave (14-1, 3-0) survived a Metro Conference scare from the Rams (9-6, 2-2) at Richmond, Va.
