USF announced Monday that transfer guard Roddy Peters is out indefinitely after fracturing his left foot in the first half of Sunday's 65-46 loss to North Carolina State.

The Bulls' assists leader (3.5 per game) and No. 2 scorer (9.8 ppg), Peters has started eight of USF's 10 contests. Freshman Jahmal McMurray (12.3 ppg, 1.5 assists), who started against the Wolfpack, now is likely to handle the Bulls' point-guard duties exclusively, with senior Nehemias Morillo (7.5 ppg) logging even more minutes at the wing.

The Bulls (2-8) host Jacksonville on Wednesday.

AP POLL: Michigan State and Kansas remained the top teams. No. 21 George Washington and No. 22 UCLA joined the poll for the first time this season, and No. 24 Texas A&M and No. 25 Connecticut returned. Vanderbilt, Oregon, Utah and Gonzaga dropped out.

NO. 7 DUKE: Forward Amile Jefferson will be out indefinitely with an unspecified right foot injury. Jefferson has started all nine games and averaged 11 points and 10 rebounds.

NO. 11 NORTH CAROLINA: Junior forward Kennedy Meeks is expected to miss at least two weeks with a bone bruise in his left knee. Meeks is averaging 12.3 points and 7.4 rebounds while shooting nearly 60 percent through nine games.


NO. 13 DUKE 70, UMASS 46: Azura Stevens had 24 points and 10 rebounds for her sixth double double to lift the host Blue Devils (8-2), who held the Minutewomen to six points and two field goals in the third quarter.

NO. 21 ARIZ. ST. 60, HARTFORD 29: Katie Hempen had 11 points and Quinn Dornstauder 10 rebounds for the visiting Sun Devils (6-3), who held the Hawks to six points in the first half and gave coach Charli Turner Thorne her 400th career victory.

AP POLL: USF moved up one spot to 20th, FSU stayed put at No. 11 and Miami entered at No. 23. St. John's also joined the poll at No. 25, and Syracuse and Iowa fell out. UConn remained No. 1.

  1. Rays let early lead get away again in loss to Angels (w/video)

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has



    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
