The win was the ninth straight at home for the Huskies dating to last season, two shy of the program record.
Dartmouth 57, UMass 55 — Sophomore Tia Dawson had 12 points and 13 rebounds and the visiting Big Green (2-12) edged the Minutewomen in Amherst to snap their 12-game losing streak.
Kiara Bomben’s 16 points led UMass (2-13), which has dropped eight in a row.
Fordham 67, Holy Cross 60 — Amy Lepley became the 28th Crusader to go over 1,000 points and Christine Ganser had 17 points and 10 rebounds but the Crusaders (7-7) fell to the Rams (10-5) in New York.
Michigan 95, Iowa 67 — Glenn Robinson III had 20 points and 10 rebounds and Trey Burke had 19 points and a career-high 12 assists as the second-ranked Wolverines (15-0, 2-0 Big Ten) blew out the visiting Hawkeyes (11-4, 0-2). Michigan is a win away from matching the program’s best start to a season, accomplished by 1985-86 squad.
Kansas 69, Temple 62 — Kevin Young had 16 points, hitting four critical free throws down the stretch, and the sixth-ranked Jayhawks (12-1) fended off the visiting Owls (10-3) for their 11th straight win.
Syracuse 55, South Florida 44 — Brandon Triche had 20 points and James Southerland scored 12 of his 17 points in the second half to help the No. 7 Orange (14-1, 2-0) overcome a slow start and win their Big East road opener over the Bulls (9-4, 0-1).
Minnesota 69, Northwestern 51 — Austin Hollins hit five 3-pointers during an impressive three-minute stretch in the second half, finishing with 19 points and sparking the ninth-ranked Golden Gophers (14-1, 2-0 Big Ten) past the visiting Wildcats (9-6, 0-2).
Florida 79, Yale 58 — Kenny Boynton matched his career high with 28 points on 8-for-10 shooting from 3-point range and the No. 13 Gators (10-2) used a 26-3 run to beat the host Bulldogs. Justin Sears had 15 points for Yale (5-11), which has lost four of five.
Franklin Pierce 70, Saint Michael’s 68 — Eric Jean-Guillaume scored 18 points and the Ravens (9-2, 6-1 Northeast-10), ranked 10th in Division 2, erased a late 6-point deficit to get past the Purple Knights (4-7, 1-6) in Rindge, N.H., and earn the program’s 750th victory.
Arkansas State 17, Kent State 13 — Ryan Aplin threw for 213 yards and a touchdown, J.D. McKissic caught 11 passes for 113 yards, and the Red Wolves edged the No. 25 Golden Flashes to win the GoDaddy.com Bowl in Mobile, Ala.
Arkansas State’s usually prolific offense struggled against Kent State, but the consistent Aplin-to-McKissic connection and a stingy defense were enough to help the Red Wolves (10-3) to their first bowl win since joining the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1992.
Kent State was driving late in the game when quarterback Spencer Keith tried to scramble on fourth down and was stopped a few yards short of the marker with 52 seconds left. Neither team scored a touchdown in the second half.
The Golden Flashes (11-3) were playing in their first bowl game since 1972.
