Here’s everything you need to know about Sunday’s slate of college basketball games …
Game of the day: Cincinnati became the third team to go into the Peterson Events Center and come away with a victory this season. Pittsburgh entered Sunday with a 156-14 mark in the building and the Panthers had won 62 of their past 66 home games at the Pete. The Bearcats won 66-63 and run their record since The Brawl to a perfect 6-0.
Win to brag about: Akron has been difficult to figure this season. The Zips handed Mississippi State a win in Starkville early in the season and got another big road victory Sunday, a fairly easy 67-51 win at Marshall -- a team expected to challenge Memphis for the C-USA title. Five guys finished in double-figures in a game that was delayed for an hour due to a bent rim on one of the baskets.
Loss to hide from: Pittsburgh is now 0-2 in the Big East and has lost three straight games overall after the setback to Cincinnati. Jamie Dixon has seen Khem Birch leave the program after 10 games and was without Travon Woodall again on Sunday as he sat out for precautionary reasons.
Player who deserves improper benefits: Michigan freshman Trey Burke is making those in Ann Arbor say, "Darius Who?" Burke went for a career-high 27 points in a win over Minnesota and has made Michigan fans forget about last year's point guard Darius Morris -- who left early for the NBA.
Player who does not deserve improper benefits: Villanova's Dominic Cheek was a big-time recruit. Frankly, he just hasn't lived up to expectations. Cheek was just 2-of-10 from the field, 1-of-7 from long distance and had nearly as many fouls (5) as points (6) in 'Nova's loss at Marquette.
Numbers don’t lie:
26: That's how many consecutive field goal attempts that Bowling Green's Torian Oglesby has converted. He was 10-for-10 in a loss to UTSA on Sunday.
6: That's the number of times already this season that North Carolina sophomore point guard Kendall Marshall has managed double-figure assists. He had 11 in the rout over Monmouth.
42: That's the percentage that North Carolina's trio of Harrison Barnes, Reggie Bullock and P.J. Hairston are shooting from beyond the arc. They are a combined 72-of-173 this season.
Three Other notable results:
Syracuse ran its record to 15-0 after an easy road win at DePaul. The Orange started 18-0 a year ago and the program's best start was 19-0 in 1999-2000.
Marquette knocked off Villanova, 81-77, in Milwaukee. Darius Johnson-Odom went for 24 points and 'Nova fell to 7-7 overall and 0-2 in league play.
Michigan jumped out to a 2-0 start in Big Ten play with a 61-56 victory over Minnesota in Ann Arbor.
Rutgers talented freshman big man Kadeem Jack made his debut against Florida, playing three minutes in the win, and logged five minutes in the loss to South Florida.
Joe Jackson's former summer league coach told CBSSports.com's Gary Parrish that the Memphis point guard won't transfer and will remain with the Tigers.
Tennessee's Cuonzo Martin told CBSSports.com that Jarnell Stokes -- who has enrolled early -- won't play against his hometown Memphis Tigers even if he's cleared by the NCAA in time for Wednesday's game.
It's a fairly light Monday, one that's headlined by a Big 12 matchup between Texas A&M and Baylor. Towson has its best shot of ending its futility streak prior to setting the Division 1 record when it hosts Northeastern at 7 p.m. ET. Marquette lost in Baton Rouge to LSU earlier this season. Now Trent Johnson gets a chance at what appears to be the third-best team in the ACC: Virginia.
