Duke's D keeps Michigan at bay

DURHAM, N.C. — Quinn Cook had 24 points and nine assists to help No. 10 Duke beat No. 22 Michigan 79-69 on Tuesday night in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

Freshman Jabari Parker added 15 points to help the Blue Devils (7-2) regroup from Friday's loss to Arizona by grinding out a tough win against the Wolverines. Duke didn't shoot well early but frustrated Michigan's offense, turning away every spurt and keeping the Wolverines (5-3) at arm's length much of the game.

Andre Dawkins came in midway through the second half and hit two straight 3-pointers to finally start Duke's clinching run, helping the Blue Devils improve to 13-2 in the Challenge, by far the best record for a team in either conference, including 6-0 at famously hostile Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Caris LeVert matched his career high with 24 points for Michigan, though leading scorer Nik Stauskas struggled all game.

Rodney Hood added 14 points for the Blue Devils. Mitch McGary had 15 points and 14 rebounds for Michigan.

Stauskas, who missed the last game with an ankle injury, finished with four points. After five straight 20-point games before sitting out against Coppin State, Stauskas missed his only two shots and had one 3-point attempt in 34 minutes.

NO. 2 ARIZONA 79, TEXAS TECH 58: Aaron Gordon had 19 points and Nick Johnson and Brandon Ashley added 18 each for the host Wildcats (8-0) in their first game since beating Duke for the NIT Season Tip-off championship.

NO. 4 SYRACUSE 69, INDIANA 52: Trevor Cooney had 21 points, Tyler Ennis added 17 points and eight assists and the host Orange won its 46th straight nonconference home game in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

NO. 21 UMASS 69, E. MICH. 57: Raphiel Putney had 15 points, including two high-flying dunks in the final minutes, and the visiting Minutemen (7-0) won their first game as a ranked team since November 1998.

NO. 23 IOWA 98, NOTRE DAME 93: Aaron White had 20 points, Devyn Marble and Jarrod Uthoff added 17 each and the host Hawkeyes (8-1) won for the third time in 13 Big Ten/ACC Challenge games.

FAU 75, UCF 64: Pablo Bertone scored a career-high 31 and powered a breakaway run in the second half as the host Owls beat the Knights (3-3).

STETSON 56, B-CU 52: Willie Green scored 18 as the host Hatters held off a late charge by the Wildcats (2-8).

WILBEKIN MAY SIT: Florida point guard Scottie Wilbekin could miss Tuesday's game against No. 6 Kansas because of a high-ankle sprain. Team officials said that X-rays on Wilbekin's right ankle were negative but added that there is no timetable for his return.


NO. 7 LOUISVILLE 91, MISSOURI ST. 49: Shoni Schimmel scored 14 for the host Cardinals (8-1), who played most of the game without senior guard Antonita Slaughter after she collapsed and was taken off the court on a stretcher. A Louisville spokesman said Slaughter was awake and alert and undergoing tests.

NO. 9 BAYLOR 113, SAN JOSE ST. 73: Odyssey Sims had 29 points and 13 assists, and the Bears (7-0) extended their nation-best home winning streak to 64 games.

NO. 13 LSU 83, INDIANA ST. 66: Raigyne Moncrief had 22 points for the host Tigers (7-1), who outscored the Sycamores 54-24 in the paint.

NO. 23 TEXAS A&M 72, SAN DIEGO ST. 35: Karla Gilbert had 16 points and 11 rebounds to lead the host Aggies (5-2).

SAINT LEO 75, FLAGLER 62: Teresa Manigrasso had 20 points and Chelsea Williams 19 points and seven rebounds as the host Lions (8-0) extended the best start in school history.

    Captain Steven Stamkos wasn't the only key Lightning player to make a triumphant return Friday night against Nashville.

  2. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.
