  • U.S. college basketball:
    • In a showdown between the two top-ranked teams in the country in Memphis, second-ranked Tennessee beats top-ranked Memphis 66–62. The result ends the Tigers' regular-season winning streak at 45 games and their home winning streak at 47, and will almost certainly elevate the Volunteers to No. 1 for the first time in school history.
    • The only other game today to feature two ranked teams, the showpiece of ESPN's annual BracketBusters event, sees Drake (#16 AP, No. 18 Coaches) travel to Indianapolis and surprise Butler (#8 in both polls) 71–64. This is Drake's first win over a top-10 team since 1982.
    • At the other end of the men's Division I spectrum, NJIT loses 76–50 to Utah Valley, completing an 0–29 season. This sets a new Division I record for losses in a winless season.
