Turnovers derail FSU women at Duke

DURHAM, N.C. — For Florida State, this was about as good a result as possible without actually beating No. 7 Duke.

Natasha Howard led FSU (10-8, 2-2 ACC) with 17 points while Cierra Bravard added 16, Chasity Clayton 15 and Chelsea Davis 10 in a game in which the Seminoles outshot the Blue Devils and played them even on the boards but ultimately lost 73-66 Friday.

"We turned the ball over a little bit too much, and that's been something we've wrestled with," said FSU basketball coach Sue Semrau, whose team committed 25 turnovers to Duke's 15. "But my team's coming a long way."

FSU shot 51.9 percent from the floor to 45.6 for the Blue Devils.

Tricia Liston scored 20 and freshman center Elizabeth Williams added 18 points and eight rebounds for Duke (13-2, 4-0), which has won 33 straight at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Louisville's top scorer out with ankle injury

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Leading scorer Kyle Kuric will not play today when the 14th-ranked Louisville men's team takes on DePaul. Kuric sustained a high left ankle sprain in practice, coach Rick Pitino said.

The senior forward was hurt Thursday when he apparently stepped on a teammate's foot. Pitino said he was not sure how long Kuric, who is averaging 13 points and had scored in double figures in 10 of his past 11 games, would be out.

UConn: Freshman Ryan Boatright will not play today at Notre Dame, benched for the second time this season as the NCAA investigates his eligibility. The point guard was suspended for the first six games for an infraction that involved accepting a plane ticket last year while he was playing AAU basketball.
