Arkansas got another huge win.
Scottie Reynolds had another huge night.
Here's Wednesday morning's What You Need To Know:
Notable game from Tuesday: I saw Arkansas last week in person and was convinced John Pelphrey had a neat team worth being ranked, which is why I ranked the Hogs 23rd in Sunday night's Top 25 (and one). Now the AP and Coaches polls will have to follow suit because Arkansas backed that 96-88 win over ninth-ranked Oklahoma with a 67-61 win over sixth-ranked Texas, meaning the Hogs possess two Top 10 victories over a pair of Big 12 powers heading into SEC play. Michael Washington led Arkansas (12-1) with 22 points and nine rebounds while Stefan Welsh added 20. Damion James got 17 points and eight rebounds for Texas (11-3).
Notable performance from Tuesday: Scottie Reynolds matched his career high of 40 points in Villanova's 89-85 overtime victory at Seton Hall. The junior guard was 10-of-17 from the field, 5-of-8 from 3-point range and 15-of-16 from the free throw line. Add it up, and it equals 40 for Reynolds, whose previous season-high was 23 points (against Houston Baptist and Navy).
Notable game scheduled for Wednesday: Neither Gonzaga's Mark Few nor Tennessee's Bruce Pearl really need this rematch right now, but their teams -- both of which are coming off losses -- will meet at Thompson-Boling Arena in a game scheduled to tip at 9 pm ET. Gonzaga beat the 15th-ranked Vols 83-74 on Nov. 30 in the title game of the Old Spice Classic at The Milk House in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. But the Zags have gone 3-4 since that victory and fallen from No. 4 to all the way out of the AP poll. Meantime, Tennessee has dropped two of its past five outings, including a 92-85 decision Saturday at Kansas. The Vols enter with a 9-3 record while Gonzaga is 8-4.
