Knee will sideline Duke's Marvin Bagley III for second straight game

Duke had little trouble despite playing their second straight game without freshman Marvin Bagley III, as the league's leading scorer and rebounder recovers from a sprained right knee.

Virginia Tech plays Saturday at Georgia Tech, where the Hokies should record a school-record fifth ACC road victory of the year. Kyle Guy is averaging 15.3 points per game and shoots Devon Hall is second in scoring at 12.5 PPG, shoots 46 percent on threes and is second on the Cavs in rebounding at 4.2 per game.

Duke, without its best player, trampled the Hokies, 74-52. Though, it came after a wild overtime loss to Virginia Tech who came into Charlottesville as double digit underdogs.

After failing to find a rhythm until the end of the first half-when they went on a 7-0 for the last couple of minutes-the Blue Devils' chances of turning the game into a rout looked slim.

"When he's emotional, it's a lot of fun", forward Wendell Carter said. But Duke would have none of that Wednesday at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Hurricanes closed the gap, however, early in the second half, opening the frame on a 10-2 run to trim the Wahoo advantage to 29-26.

Anderson also said that he would "treat all candidates equally to ensure their path to the party nomination is honest and fair". Romney teased in a tweet on February 1 that he will announce his campaign to run for the U.S.


It'll be the second game the 6-11, 234-pounder has missed time due to the injury.

This was a seesaw game that went back and forth; Virginia Tech even held a nine-point lead at the eight-minute mark of the first half. The Canes need an impressive-enough ACC run and to re-find their groove when Brown is back in the fold and ready to play.

Grayson Allen's resurgence needs to continue, not only for Duke to win tonight, but to be considered as a national title contender.

No. 2 Michigan State 87, Minnesota 57: Jaren Jackson Jr. scored a career-high 27 points on 10-for-14 shooting and the Spartans (25-3, 13-2 Big Ten) cruised to their ninth consecutive victory.

Virginia's defense proved to be an obstacle for Miami, which was especially highlighted by Miami's season-low 16 first-half points, and its 7:21 scoreless stretch in the first half. NCAA scoring leader Trae Young scored 19 points but was just 4-for-15 from the field and 0-for-9 from 3-point range as the Sooners dropped their fourth in a row. The Blue Devils are 20-5 and ranked No. 12 in the AP Poll.

"You're going to give up something against every team", he said after the game, "but you're for sure going to give up something (against Duke)".
