UVA Ranked #1 AP Top 25 After Loss To Virginia Tech

Virginia passes first test as number one ranked team

The Blue Devils had only six first-half points in the paint. "That was 10 days ago that Miami beat us from start to finish in a very noncompetitive game at home". One week later, Virginia Tech has moved into a relatively safe spot inside the NCAA Tournament field after beating NC State and shocking now #1 Virginia in primetime on ESPN.

Maybe several Hokies will grow 4, 5 or 6 inches and be able to defend the lob passes that led to dunks whose thunder was matched only by the reactions of the fans in Cameron Indoor Stadium. Trent has made 15 of his last 24 3-point attempts and will look to stay hot against Virginia Tech.

Robinson shot 2-of-10 and was limited by foul trouble.

Saturday's home foe-Syracuse-is now ninth in conference, while a road game against 12th-seeded Notre Dame seems less daunting against an Irish squad now 5-8 in ACC play. "But with Allen touching the ball so much more, not only is he going to shoot more, but I think he probably facilitates the play on both sides of the floor a lot more".

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said Duval had his best performance in a couple of weeks, but didn't indicate whether the guard's role will change. After another free throw miss from Blackshear, Jerome had more more shot to win it - however, his three-point launch went wide right. What was surprising was that he only had four. Duke used their superior size to outrebound Tech 36-19.

Duke freshman Marvin Bagley III will miss the Blue Devils' game against Virginia Tech on Wednesday with a mild knee sprain, the school announced.

For the Hokies, it was a 40-minute beatdown. Defensively, Duke basketball yields 72.6 points per game against the opposing teams.

The accused fraudster resigned Monday, a Justice Department official said, the same day as the charges were filed in U.S. CNN, which contacted the ICE Western region office for comment, was told to refer questions to the DOJ.

Duke played zone 100 percent of the game.

The Canes were seemingly still in it over the next few minutes, shorthanded yet going blow-for-blow with the Cavaliers-until the 8:16 mark when a three-pointer by De'Andre Hunter signaled an official turning of the tide and close out for the top-ranked squad, pushing the lead to nine.

Teammate Gary Trent Jr., a freshman, scored 19, including 5-9 from beyond the arc. The Cardinals and Hokies would be eliminated with one more loss.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Grant Williams scored 22 points and made a big basket in the closing seconds Tuesday as No. 18 Tennessee edged SC 70-67 to hand the Gamecocks their sixth consecutive loss. That included 11 offensive boards that led to an 18-2 edge in second-chance points, with freshman Wendell Carter Jr. leading the way with 13 rebounds.

"They handled success well and they handle failure well and I think that's really good". "They didn't get a lot of clean looks".

"They're real disciplined", he said. However, VT can push themselves back towards the bubble if they get upset by Georgia Tech on the road especially with the Yellow Jackets being 13th in the ACC and 143rd in the RPI. The Yellow Jackets have struggled this season, but pose yet another threat to the Hokies, in their search of a second-straight NCAA berth.

Up next: The Canes are home Saturday at noon against Syracuse.
