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.
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."
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina coach Roy Williams says it's time to get tougher on his team.
The No. 24 Tar Heels (7-3) just haven't looked like one of the favorites in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship so far, leaving their Hall of Fame coach displeased with everything from turnovers to a lack of toughness.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville coach Rick Pitino has announced that reserve sophomore forward Akoy Agau will transfer after this semester.
The 6-foot-8 Sudanese native has played in just three games after recovering from sports hernia surgery on July 29. Agau played in 19 contests last year but has fallen out of a frontcourt rotation featuring 6-10 veteran Mangok Mathiang and talented freshmen 6-10 Chinanu Onauaku and 7-foot Anas Mahmoud.
CINCINNATI (AP) Four days after losing a game in double overtime because they couldn't make an open shot, the Bearcats fixed that problem.
Farad Cobb hit a 3-pointer that put Cincinnati in control in overtime, and the Bearcats pulled away to a 71-62 victory over No. 19 San Diego State on Wednesday night after letting a late lead slip away in regulation.
