Tennessee Coach Wade Houston resigned Monday with the Volunteers headed for their worst season since they finished 4-19 in 1961-62. They are 5-19 overall and 2-12 in the Southeastern Conference.
Houston said he will leave after this season. The Vols have two regular-season games left before the Southeastern Conference tournament in two weeks.
No. 4 Connecticut 66, Georgetown 62--Donyell Marshall, who took a hard elbow in the face in the first half, scored 23 points as the Huskies (25-3, 15-2) held on for a Big East victory over Georgetown (16-8, 10-6) at Landover, Md.
Marshall, who leads the Big East in scoring and has scored 20 points or more in 26 of Connecticut's 28 games, spent several minutes crumpled on the floor. No foul was called. Marshall returned to the game after sitting out for two minutes.
No. 10 Louisville 108, Howard 65--Louisville's Greg Minor, playing his final game before the home fans, scored 25 points to lead the Cardinals (23-4).
Center Clifford Rozier scored 12 points to become the third player in Louisville history to score 1,000 in two seasons. The others were Wes Unseld and Howard Coach Butch Beard.
Howard (10-15) played without two starters, center Grady Livingston and leading scorer Art Crowder, who were involved in a fight along with reserve Eric Dedmon last week against Delaware State.
No. 22 Marquette 86, San Francisco 65--Jim McIlvaine, the nation's leading shot-blocker, had seven blocks, scored 21 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Warriors (21-7) over the Dons (16-10) at Milwaukee.
McIlvaine, who leads the nation with 4.5 blocks a game, disrupted the Dons' high-powered offense, which was averaging 91 points a game.
UCLA, despite splitting its games with California and Stanford last week, maintained its No. 15 ranking in the Associated Press poll. Arizona went from No. 9 to No. 8 and Cal, which lost to USC on Saturday, dropped from No. 17 to No. 20.
