EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Two possessions into the second half, Mike Krzyzewski had seen more than enough from his young and talented Duke team and let them know it in forceful terms that any young man would understand.

After hollering at his second-ranked Blue Devils to get over to the bench, Coach K asked them what was wrong and then told them to wake up, throwing in an occasional salty word.

While the tirade didn't sink in immediately, Duke (10-0) got the message.


No. 6 Cavs return from layoff, now 10-0

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Justin Anderson's eyes lit up at the thought that No. 6 Virginia held Cleveland State scoreless for more than 10 minutes.

"That was super sick," Anderson said of the first-half stretch in the Cavaliers' 70-54 victory on Thursday night. "If we can ask ourselves to do that throughout the whole game, I think this team can go to another level defensively."

Williams getting tougher on No. 24 UNC

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina coach Roy Williams says it's time to get tougher on his team.

Orange gaining confidence, 'Nova up next

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Trevor Cooney has given Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim something his Orange desperately needed - a solid game.

Florida G Carter dealing with strep

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida guard Eli Carter can't seem to stay on the floor.
