No. 18 UCLA beats UC Santa Barbara 89-76 (Yahoo Sports)
No. 18 UCLA used its depth to pull away from a halftime tie with UC Santa Barbara. Jordan Adams scored 22 points and Kyle Anderson added 21 to lead UCLA to an 89-76 victory Tuesday night. ''We're driving the ball very hard, and think we're hard to guard in transition,' ' UCLA coach Steve Alford said. It's not just one guy getting to the line, or one guy making shots.'' One player who did make a big shot for the Bruins is very familiar to Alford.
No. 21 UMass beats Eastern Michigan 69-57 (Yahoo Sports)
Massachusetts did OK in its first game as a ranked team in 15 years. The 21st-ranked Minutemen needed a late rally to survive an upset bid by Eastern Michigan and win 69-57 on Tuesday night. Raphiael Putney scored 15 points, including two high-flying dunks in the final minutes, for Massachusetts, which was last ranked in November 1998. ''I think teams you're playing see that number next to your name, and (Eastern Michigan) made some plays in the first half that I haven't seen on tape,'' UMass coach Derek Kellogg said.
No. 10 Duke beats No. 22 Michigan 79-69 (Yahoo Sports)
Duke played the defense its Hall of Fame coach wanted to see, while Quinn Cook turned in an all-around floor game to keep the 10th-ranked Blue Devils rolling in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Cook had 24 points - all in the second half - and nine assists to help Duke beat No. 22 Michigan 79-69 on Tuesday night, improving the Blue Devils to 13-2 all-time in the annual interconference competition. Freshman Jabari Parker added 15 points to help the Blue Devils (7-2) regroup from last week's loss to Arizona by grinding out a tough win against the Wolverines. Duke didn't shoot the ball well early but frustrated Michigan's offense, turning away every spurt and keeping the Wolverines (5-3) at arm's length much of the game.
Veterans steady backcourt for No. 8 Wisconsin (Yahoo Sports)
Seven-footer Frank Kaminsky owns the school single-game scoring record. Forward Sam Dekker creates matchup problems with his inside-out game. But someone needs to get the big guys the ball for No. 8 Wisconsin, and coach Bo Ryan's team has three players who are filling that role and then some. At 8-0, the Badgers are a virtual offensive juggernaut scoring 76.8 points per game.
