LEXINGTON, Ky. —
Trevor Cooney scores 15 points all on 3-pointers, while Tyler Ennis and Jerami Grant scored 12 points each.
Malik Smith had 16 points for Minnesota.
Syracuse led by only three points at halftime. But the Orange started the second half with a 13-2 run mostly led by Fair, who hit two jumpers, two free throws and a tip-in as Syracuse tallied 10 straight points.
No. 15 Florida 86, Jacksonville 60: JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Casey Prather scored 27 points, Michael Frazier II added 17 and Florida handled Jacksonville.
The Gators (5-1) won their fourth consecutive game following a loss at 10th-ranked Wisconsin two weeks ago. The latest victory was a final tuneup before the team’s toughest stretch of the season — games against Florida State, Connecticut, Kansas and Memphis.
It should help that point guard Scottie Wilbekin has returned to the rotation. Coach Billy Donovan even started the senior, who was suspended the first five games of the season and an exhibition contest for an undisclosed violation of team rules.
Wilbekin finished with 12 points, seven assists, five rebounds and just two turnovers.
Dorian Finney-Smith added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the visitors. Patric Young chipped in 13 points.
Jarvis Haywood led the Dolphins (2-4) with 16 points. Vince Martin added 11 points and 10 boards.
No. 17 Iowa State 110, UMKC 51: AMES, Iowa — DeAndre Kane had 20 points and eight rebounds, and Iowa State trounced Missouri-Kansas City for its fifth straight win.
Sherron Dorsey-Walker added 17 points for the Cyclones (5-0), who used a 27-0 run midway through the first half to put away the Kangaroos.
Iowa State, which was hosting a game as a ranked team for the first time in eight years, held UMKC scoreless for 7 1/2 minutes and led 52-17 at halftime.
The Cyclones also finished with their most points under fourth-year coach Fred Hoiberg.
Martez Harrison had 14 points to lead UMKC (1-4). The Kangaroos shot just 29.5 percent and lost for the third time in four games.
