Zion Williamson hasn't really given out many hints as to where he's going for college. Perfect example: he was on ESPN's campus last week, and there's a machine there that plays any college fight song you want. Zion's fight song choice? Florida State. Like I said, no hints.

Houston coach Kelvin Sampson on his team's win over Wichita State, which moves the Cougars to 15-4: "What this does is tells the average fan, who doesn't pay much attention to us, that we're good...[this will] perk their ears up and that's a good thing."

Wichita State preseason All-American guard Landry Shamet with just 7 points on 2-for-10 shooting, his worst shooting outing of the year, in a loss at Houston on Saturday. The root of the struggles today? "Their defense," Shockers coach Gregg Marshall said. "They did a good job on him today."

Houston's 73-59 win over No. 7 Wichita State is quality résumé win for the Cougars, a bubble team. They're 9-0 at home this year and avenge an 81-63 road loss to the Shockers earlier this month. Houston guard Rob Gray was impressive, with a game-high 24 points.

No. 7 Wichita State falls at Houston 73-59, the Shockers' second straight. It's the first time they've lost consecutive conference games since the 2012-13 season. The loss snaps their nation's-best 11-game road winning streak.

Houston leading No. 7 Wichita State 62-46 at the under 8 timeout (7:18 left). Would be a good resume win for Houston if the Cougars can hold on. They're in Joe Lunardi's "Next four out" in Bracketology. This would be the Shockers second straight loss after falling at home to SMU on Thursday.

Purdue is doing nothing to dispel the talk that this team could win a national title. The Boilermakers have scored 51 points in just 30 possessions to take a 31-point lead over Iowa at the half in Iowa City. Carsen Edwards has 16 points for the Boilers.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

No. 7 Wichita State -- which lost to SMU on Thursday -- is trailing Houston on the road 35-26 at the half. The Shockers trailed by as much as 12. They're shooting just 35 percent (8-for-23) thus far.

Nicole Player, Billy Preston's mother: "It's been too long. They didn't have an answer and weren't prepared to give us answers. He just wants to play.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Billy Preston's mother just confirmed the signing to ESPN. He didn't sign with an agent, but the plan is to enter the NBA Draft.

Mark Schlabach ESPN Senior Writer 

Kansas freshman Billy Preston has signed a professional contract with BC Ikogea of Bosnia, according to an announcement by the European team, and apparently won't play a game for the Jayhawks this season. Preston hasn't played for No. 10 Kansas this season while school officials investigated ownership of a car that he wrecked on campus in November.

By beating Gonzaga last night, Saint Mary's improved its projected NCAA tournament seed from 8.9 to 7.8, per BPI. The Gaels are also more likely (27%) than any D-I team to win all of their remaining regular season games.

Moving forward, a few interesting proposals will go to a vote of the Division I Council in April. Included is one that would turn the spring evaluation period in football recruiting (April 15-May 31) into a contact period, during which coaches could visit with prospects at their high schools. Another proposal would allow coaches to talk publicly (on social media and to the media) about recruits. Also, there's a proposal designed to ease the requirements for players seeking an extension of their five-year clock.

Nothing controversial on the agenda for Power 5 legislators at the NCAA convention autonomy business session this morning. Expected to pass is a rule that would require schools to provide medical care to student-athletes with athletically related injuries — for up to two years after their collegiate playing careers. Another proposal calls for a mandated, three-day break from men's basketball activities, with some conditions, for every team during the December holiday break.
