Jags face tall task against No. 1 Duke

Jags face tall task against No. 1 Duke”

The former No. 1 recruit led the Blue Devils to a 78-61 win against Southern at Cameron Indoor Stadium Friday night, scoring 19 points-including nine of Duke's first 16-and grabbing 11 rebounds before fouling out.

Marvin Bagley III contributed 19 points and 11 rebounds while Grayson Allen and Trevon Duval finished with 10 points apiece for the Blue Devils (4-0).

OSU (16-4-3) finished the season as Big 12 regular-season champions, won its first NCAA Tournament game in four years and has reasons to be positive as eight of its 11 starters return next season.

UConn trailed 4-3 early before scoring 23 of the next 25 points to take command of the game.

"We can do better on offense", said Allen, a senior who was 0-for-6 on 3-pointers after pouring in a career-high 37 points against Michigan State.

Percentages: FG.328, FT.667. 3-Point Goals: 7-17, .412 (Sandfer 3-7, Mayo 2-2, Johnson 1-2, Lee 1-2, Reese 0-2, Thomas 0-2).

By that point, the Jackrabbits (3-1) were staring at a 30-point deficit. Carter was also a force in the paint, scoring 20 points with 11 rebounds against an undersized team that ranked 330th out of 351 in Ken Pomeroy's adjusted efficiency ranking.

Jalen Brunson added 22 points and hit 4 of 6 3s in another dominant performance by the Wildcats (3-0), who made 16 of 30 from long range.

Matt Klinewski had 16 points and six rebounds for Lafayette, which was 7 of 29 from 3-point range.

Senior forward Jared Sam, the best player on the team, had the most hard task possible of having to score, all while having to deal with Carter and Bagley.

The Wildcats held the Buccaneers (1-2) to 32 percent shooting, including just 10 of 36 (28 percent) in the second half.

Peter Jurkin had 17 points for ETSU.

Max Heidigger scored 24 points as the Gauchos (1-2) stuck around after the Aggies built an early 16-point lead.

(2) TEXAS 120, TEXAS-SAN ANTONIO 70: Jada Underwood scored 19 points, Brooke McCarty had 18 and Texas (3-0) cruised past Texas-San Antonio (1-3) at Austin. They combined to shoot 14-for-21 from the field for the game.

Gary Trent Jr. had 10 rebounds but was 3-of-11 shooting for Duke, which never led by fewer than 10 points in the second half, but also had trouble putting Southern away, not pushing its lead into the 20s until the final 5 minutes.

Southern's Jared Sam, a 6-foot-10 senior, 21 points against both IL and Marshall.

Hands and fellow freshman Kris Wilkes broke the game open to start the second half for the Bruins (3-0).

Although the rest of the team besides Wendell Carter Jr. seemed to be in a hangover in the first half after No. 1 Duke's thrilling win against the No. 2 Spartans, Bagley didn't miss a beat.

Freshman Chris Smith added 15 points. Team Rebounds: 4. Team Turnovers: 15 (5 PTS).

Donte Wright scored 23 points to lead the Bulldogs (0-4). The final score was Duke 78, Southern 61. Because the Blue Devils took the previous two days off, Krzyzewski said they will practice Saturday and Sunday. He finished with four points and four rebounds but did the best he could when considering the circumstances.

Drew has a career record of 300-191.

Reginal Johnson scored 14 points for Alcorn (0-4).
