top 25 roundup Tuesday’s other games


No. 2 Duke 73, N.C. State 56

DURHAM, N.C. — Gerald Henderson scored 21 points and Duke pulled away late to beat North Carolina State. Nolan Smith hit consecutive 3-pointers 30 seconds apart to start the decisive run for the Blue Devils (17-1, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). They closed the game on a 27-5 run and shot 76 percent in the second half. Kyle Singler had 14 of his 17 points in the second half and Smith finished with 13 to help Duke overcome a horrible start. Brandon Costner and Ben McCauley both scored 15 points for the Wolfpack (10-6, 1-3), who led for much of the way but hit just one field goal over the final 7:45 minutes. That cold spell helped Duke claim its 12th straight victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium over N.C. State, which hasn’t won inside the Blue Devils’ famously hostile arena since 1995.


No. 7 Louisville 68, Cincinnati 50

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Angel McCoughtry had 23 points, nine rebounds and eight steals to lead Louisville to its 14th straight victory. Candyce Bingham had 10 points and seven rebounds for the Cardinals (19-1, 6-0 Big East). Kahla Roudebush led Cincinnati with 18 points, while Michelle Jones had 12 and Jill Stephens 11.

No. 21 Rutgers 60, West Virginia 44

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Epiphanny Prince scored 24 points and No. 21 Rutgers held West Virginia without a field goal for nearly 10 minutes. The Scarlet Knights (11-5, 3-2 Big East) were trailing 8-6 after Ashley Powell’s 3-pointer with 13 minutes left in the first half.

No. 25 Pittsburgh 76, Seton Hall 40

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. — Shavonte Zellous scored 29 points to lead Pittsburgh. It was the second straight blowout victory for the Panthers (13-4, 3-2 Big East).
