MEN'S TOP 25 Georgia Tech spoils Miami's ACC opener

The Yellow Jackets were without leading scorer B.J. Elder.
ATLANTA -- Will Bynum scored 21 points and No. 9 Georgia Tech ruined Miami's Atlantic Coast Conference debut with an 80-69 victory Thursday night.
The Yellow Jackets (10-2, 1-0) bounced back from an overtime loss at No. 2 Kansas, a game in which leading-scorer B.J. Elder injured a hamstring that could keep him out through this weekend.
Luke Schenscher added 15 points for Georgia Tech, while Jarrett Jack had 14 points and nine rebounds.
Guillermo Diaz had 27 points for the Hurricanes (9-3, 0-1), who moved from the Big East to the ACC this season. They had an eight-game winning streak snapped.
No. 23 Cincinnati 83, DePaul 54
CINCINNATI -- Jason Maxiell scored 19 points for the Bearcats, who have won 26-of-29 over DePaul, including 14 straight on the Bearcats' home court.
Armein Kirkland had 18 points for Cincinnati (12-1, 1-0 Conference USA).
Quemont Greer, who leads the conference in scoring at 24.1 points per game, had 12 on 4-of-13 shooting for the Blue Demons (8-4, 0-1). That ended his school-record streak of eight consecutive games with at least 20 points.
No. 15 Texas 74, Memphis 67
AUSTIN, Texas -- P.J. Tucker scored four points in the final 42 seconds, including a fastbreak dunk after a turnover, and Texas muscled past Memphis.
Texas led 69-67 when the Longhorns pressured Memphis guard Darius Washington into losing the ball as the shot clock was winding down.
Tucker tipped the ball forward, picked it up and raced downcourt to throw down a one-handed jam over Memphis' Rodney Carney.
Tucker, who led Texas with 18 points, was fouled after rebounding Washington's missed 3-pointer and hit both free throws with 17 seconds left to seal the victory.
Daniel Gibson added 17 points for the Longhorns (11-2).
Washington scored 23 points and Carney had 18 for Memphis (7-7), which has lost five of its last seven games.
