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.

Women

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.
