Virginia (21-1, 9-1 ACC) currently leads the ACC by one game over Notre Dame. Anderson is a big reason for that, averaging 13.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, and two assists per game while shooting 48% from 3-point land this season.Anderson is likely out for the rest of the regular season, but could be back for the NCAA tournament in the middle of March.

Power 5 Approve Cost-Of-Attendance Stipends

Power 5 Approve Cost-Of-Attendance Stipends Mitchell Layton/Getty Images (FORT WASHINGTON, Md) -- Another step has been taken towards reforming the treatment of student-athletes in college athletics. A panel of 80 -- 15 student-athletes, and 65 universities -- voted 79-1 to pass the full cost of attendance issue that will provide athletes compensation outside of athletic scholarships. Boston College was the lone dissenting vote according to tabulations. Schools will provide stipends that could range from $2,000 to $5,000, determined by the universities, while under federally mandated guidelines, to cover cost of living expenses. Other issues that will be reformed include Universities no longer having the ability to revoke scholarships solely based on athletic performance. Athletes will also be able to borrow from a discretionary student assistance fund against future earnings and the establishment of a concussion safety protocol. These are the latest changes that include reforming how much food players are allowed to eat, not provided by the school.  In 2014, the University of Oklahoma self-reported a violation in which three football players ate too much pasta at a graduation banquet.  The players had to donate $3.83 to charities of their choice to repay the cost of the pasta. While at the University of Connecticut, Shabazz Napier spoke to the issue: "We do have hungry nights that we don't have enough money to get food in. Sometimes money is needed. I don't think you should stretch it out to hundreds of thousands of dollars for playing, because a lot of times guys don't know how to handle themselves with money. I feel like a student athlete. Sometimes, there's hungry nights where I'm not able to eat, but I still gotta play up to my capabilities." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Rutgers Basketball Stuns No.4 Wisconsin

Rutgers Basketball Stuns No.4 Wisconsin G Fiume/Maryland Terrapins/Getty Images(PISCATAWAY, N.J.) -- As the Wisconsin Badgers played without Frank Kaminsky, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights capitalized with a shocking 67-62 upset victory. Eddie Jordan and the Knights achieved what could arguably be the biggest victory in school history as they took down the No.4 team in the country Sunday at "the RAC." "It's a great win for the program," said Jordan, whose team is in its first season in the Big Ten. "Our crowd was here to witness it. Hopefully it leaves a taste in their mouth and they want more. Of the nearly 7,000 fan in attendance, several dozen stormed the court, while most maintained their composure and cheered on the victory. Seniors Kadeem Jack and Myles Mack led the charge for Rutgers scoring 20 and 21 points, respectively. Jordan took over the team in 2013 after former head coach Mike Rice was discovered to have verbally abused, and had physical altercations with, members of the team.

Seton Hall Shocks (6) Villanova Tom Maguire/BIG EAST Conference/Collegiate Images/Getty Images(NEWARK, N.J.) -- Seton Hall is rising back to prominence in the Big East. Tied at 58 after regulation the Pirates and Wildcats traded points until Seton Hall freshman Khadeen Carrington drove for a crucial layup.  The Pirates would be up 62-61 when Carrington was fouled and he would hit both free throws. Sophomore Jaren Sina would also add a pair of free throw to seal the win 66-61. "Anybody who loves the game wants the ball," Carrington said. "I try to make big plays and that play they started cutting off my left, so I started spinning right and it was wide open." This is the second time this week that Seton Hall (12-2) has upset another member of the Big East.  The Pirates defeated No.15 St. Johns Wednesday 59-50. Sterling Gibbs led the Pirates with 20 points, shooting 8 of 20 from the field and Desi Rodriguez dominated the boards with 11 rebounds.  "I'm so proud of this young group," said Steon Hall head coach Kevin Willard.

NJIT Stuns No. 17 Michigan Joe Robbins/Getty Images(ANN ARBOR, Mi.) -- New Jersey Insitute of Technology upset No. 17 Michigan, Saturday with a thrilling 72-70 victory.

(1) Kentucky Runs Past (6) Texas in Second Half

(1) Kentucky Runs Past (6) Texas in Second Half Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images(LEXINGTON, Ky.) -- After entering the second half tied at 26 apiece, the Kentucky Wildcats flexed their muscle and pulled away from sixth-ranked Texas, ultimately beating the Longhorns (7-1) 63-51 on Friday night. Willie Cauley-Stein had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the top-ranked Wildcats (8-0), who shot just 1-for-12 from three-point land. The 7-foot junior was a key part to the second half dominance, helping spark a 16-2 run that opened the period. Cauley-Stein also provided valuable defense down the stretch as Texas closed the gap to just five before he converted on a free throw and dunk to regain momentum. "I was more confident," said Cauley-Stein. "I've been working on my game and I had confidence. That was the biggest thing, doing it. It paid off." Cauley-Stein's performance was even more valuable as twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison combined to shoot just 3-for-17 in the contest. Jonathan Holmes scored 14 points for the Longhorns, who outrebounded Kentucky 42-31. Although they consistently battled, Texas could only close to 56-51 with 1:44 left and no closer.

Pitino Picks Up 700th Career Win

Pitino Picks Up 700th Career Win J. Meric/Getty Images(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) -- It wasn't as comfortable a victory as was probably expected, but No. 6 Louisville defeated Cleveland State 45-33 on Wednesday night in what was the 700th career victory for head coach Rick Pitino.  I hope I'm as lucky to (win) 800, because I remember it as if it was yesterday," said Pitino. "I don't think there's as much significance personally for me, but the significance I take away is that senior class last year, how many games they won. I was the beneficiary today." The 62-year-old became the 20th coach in Division I history to win 700 career games and ranks sixth among active head coaches. Pitino is now 700-245 in his career, including 346-117 in 14 seasons with the Cardinals (5-0). Louisville struggled to pull away all night, leading 33-29 with 12 minutes remaining. A combination of poor shooting and missed free throws allowed the Vikings (2-3) to think upset. However, Cleveland State made just two of their final 14 shots and did not score in the final six minutes. Montrezl Harrell had 15 points and 13 rebounds in the win, Louisville's lowest scoring game since 1997. The Vikings were paced by Trey Lewis' 24 points.

Butler Knocks Off (5) North Carolina

Butler Knocks Off (5) North Carolina Michael Hickey/Getty Images(PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas) -- In the semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis, the Butler Bulldogs knocked off fifth-ranked North Carolina Wednesday night, 74-66, one of the bigger upsets in the first month of the college basketball season. "This is a proud program with tremendous heritage and we're trying to do the very best with what's in front of us," said Butler's interim head coach Chris Holtmann. It was not an easy task for Butler (4-0) who dominated the backboards, outrebounding the Tarheels (3-1) 57-40, grabbing 29 offensive rebounds in the process. That helped the Bulldogs overcome an abysmal shooting night. Butler was just 22-of-72 (30.6%) from the floor, shooting just 7 percent in the final eight minutes of regulation. However, the Bulldogs had already built up a solid lead and were able to hold off UNC. It was a decisive 16-4 run in the second half that turned a 43-41 deficit into a 59-45 lead. Alex Barlow and Kelan Martin each had 17 points for Butler in the win. It is the second time in the last three seasons that Butler has beat a top-10 ranked North Carolina squad. They also pulled the upset in 2012 at the Maui Invitational. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
