Ingram fills void in Duke rout

DURHAM, N.C. — Freshman Brandon Ingram had season highs of 26 points and 14 rebounds, and No. 7 Duke beat Georgia Southern 99-65 on Tuesday night.

Grayson Allen added 18 points for the Blue Devils (9-1) in their first game without injured forward Amile Jefferson. He averages a double double.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski said Jefferson broke his right foot during practice and is out indefinitely, but does not need surgery.

"Everybody was asked to pick it up some," Ingram said.

Playing for the first time in 10 days due to final exams, Duke had little trouble in its seventh straight win. The Blue Devils had a 55-29 rebounding advantage.

For Duke, the priority was figuring out the best way to play without Jefferson, who averaged 11 points and 10 rebounds. The answer: Lean on Ingram and Marshall Plumlee, who had a career-best 11 rebounds.

Duke replaced Jefferson with Luke Kennard — a freshman making his first start — and shifted Ingram from small forward to Jefferson's power forward spot.

Kennard missed his first six shots, including four 3-pointers. He scored 11 on 4-of-13 shooting.

No. 23 Cincinnati 75, Norfolk State 59: Farad Cobb matched his season high with 20 points for the host Bearcats (9-2).

MONMOUTH UPSETS GEORGETOWN: Je'lon Hornbeak scored 18, going 15-of-16 from the line, and Monmouth upset host Georgetown 83-68 for the program's first win over a Big East opponent. The Hoyas (6-4) were outrebounded 38-32.

Eastern KY. 80, FAU 73: The host Colonels dropped the Owls to 2-7. Adonis Filer scored 16 for Florida Atlantic and Ronald Delph, a 7-footer from Auburn, added 11 in his first game.

Iowa State: Guard Naz Mitrou-Long is out for the rest of his senior year because his surgically repaired hips haven't responded the way he would like. He will seek a medical redshirt.

NEVADA: AJ West, who led team in scoring and rebounding a year ago, has left the Wolf Pack for personal reasons. He had his playing time decrease under first-year coach Eric Musselman.

Women: FSU wins big

TALLAHASSEE — Leticia Romero made a career-high four 3-pointers and had 14 points, nine rebounds and seven assists to lead No. 11 Florida State to a 79-36 victory over Mercer for its sixth straight win in the series.

FSU (8-2) hit a season-high 10 3-pointers.

The Seminoles, who have won eight of their last nine games, made four 3-pointers in the first seven minutes of the second quarter, taking a 34-20 lead. FSU led by double figures from there.

No. 7 Oregon State 75, Cal State Bakersfield 51: Ruth Hamblin had 12 points, eight rebounds and two blocks for the host Beavers (8-0), who had every player score.

No. 12 Northwestern 91, Alcorn State 47: Nia Coffey had 23 points and 17 rebounds for the host Wildcats (10-0).

South Dakota State 88, No. 16 DePaul 79: Macy Miller scored 19 and the host Jackrabbits upset the Blue Demons (7-4).

UCONN: Forward De'Janae Boykin will transfer after one semester with the top-ranked Huskies. She wants to be closer to her home in Springdale, Md.

    Bucs

    TAMPA — No player works as closely with Jameis Winston as the center. Only those two touch the ball on every play. Together they make — if you will — snap judgements about defensive alignments.
