FRESHMEN BATTLE: Kansas’ Andrew Wiggins dunks over Duke’s Jabari Parker on Tuesday night, when Wiggins’ second-half surge negated Parker’s first-half explosion in Kansas’ win.

TAMPA — Akila McDonald had a season-high 16 points and 12 players scored for USF in an 82-53 victory over Jacksonville on Wednesday night at the Sun Dome.

Every Bulls player saw action in front a crowd of 1,294. Courtney Williams had her third straight game scoring in double digits with 15 points, and Shalethia Stringfield added 13 for USF (2-1).

Shavontae Naylor had a career-high 10 rebounds as USF finished with a 57-36 edge on the glass.

"We attacked the glass, and that's what I've stressed the last two days in practice," coach Jose Fernandez said.

USF, which improved to 10-0 against Jacksonville (0-2), cruised in the second half despite turning the ball over a season-high 21 times overall.

NO. 7 KENTUCKY 103, GA. SOUTHERN 38: Reserve Bernisha Pinkett scored 19 for the Wildcats (3-0) in a morning home opener before about 2,000 sixth-graders.

NO. 16 TEXAS A&M 76, PRAIRIE VIEW 27: Karla Gilbert had 15 points and seven rebounds to lead the Aggies (2-0) in their home opener.

NO. 18 PURDUE 76, IUPUI 56: KK Houser had 20 points to lead the host Boilermakers (2-0).

NO. 23 IOWA ST. 88, S. DAKOTA 72: Hallie Christofferson had 25 points and 12 rebounds to lead the host Cyclones (2-0).

NO. 1 UCONN: All-America forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis has a nerve bruise in her right elbow and is out indefinitely. Forward Morgan Tuck will miss four to six weeks after having arthroscopic knee surgery.

Men

kansas tops duke: Andrew Wiggins scored 16 of his 22 in the second half, outplaying fellow freshman Jabari Parker down the stretch and helping fifth-ranked Kansas knock off No. 4 Duke 94-83 late Tuesday in Chicago.

"Big players make big plays," Wiggins said. "I think our whole team, whoever was on the court, every possession we made a big play. That's why we came out on top."

Parker, a star at Chicago's Simeon Academy, had 27 points, nine rebounds and two steals for the Blue Devils (1-1). But Wiggins made the biggest plays in the final minutes. He hit a stepback jumper to give the Jayhawks (2-0) an 85-81 lead with 1:33 left, then had a fastbreak dunk as a trailing Parker picked up his fifth foul.

OLE MISS: Senior guard Marshall Henderson will return for Saturday's game after being suspended for the season opener.

WASHINGTON: Forward Jernard Jarreau will miss the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
