DUKE 66-63, final: Reggie Jackson hits a huge three to get BC within one, but Scheyer drills his free throws and Trapani's buzzer beater clangs off the iron. Duke escapes with a 3-point win on the road.
Duke 86, Iowa State 65 (FINAL): Strong performance by the Blue Devils today against the Cyclones, which extends the team's win streak to seven. In addition to Scheyer's 31 points, Smith contributed 20 points and Singler 15 to complement his 8 rebounds. As a team, Duke and Iowa State were on par from the field, with both hitting about 45 percent of their shots. A big difference, however, were free throws and turnovers. Iowa State went 11 for 19 from the charity stripe whereas Duke hit 19 of 21. Also, Duke's defense forced 18 turnovers compared to the 11 turnovers its offense gave up.
As the 2000s wind to a close, Sports Illustrated has been looking at the decade in various sports. Up today: college basketball.
Days after the New Jersey Nets fired their head coach and set a new NBA mark for futility, the speculation about who will replace GM Kiki Vandeweghe after the season has begun. According to SI.com's Ian Thomsen, at least one NBA head coach thinks the Nets should start and end their search in Cameron Indoor Stadium:
2:30: The game starts getting chippy, so Sean Renfree replaces Thad Lewis and promptly throws an interception on his first play. UNC is whistled for a block in the back on the return, and the two teams have offsetting fouls--all on the same play. The game's essentially over. Duke drops to 5-4, 3-2 in the ACC. More after the Blue Devils' press conference.
Duke may not be starting the year as the top-ranked team in the country, as it did in 2005-06, but it does have one thing in common with that team: a preseason All-American.
In the "I think he's joking, but I'm not completely sure" category, it appears former Blue Devil J.J. Redick is looking to release a rap album. When asked about his musical endeavor, Redick said, "We were trying to make it a little underground, viral marketing and all that stuff, but apparently its gonna get out there."
Duke fans won't have to wait much longer to find out if the Kyrie Irving rumors are true.
It's been a good week for Leeds United striker Mike Grella. After playing 82 minutes and earning Man of the Match honors in Monday's win over Darlington, the former Duke star signed a three-year contract with the club Wednesday.
According to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, eight NFL teams were on hand to scout some Duke seniors at their recently held Pro Day. Even though Brandt doesn't mention the blazing 4.36 40-yard dash time that wide receiver Eron Riley apparently posted last Monday, he does make some notable commendations and predictions regarding a few Blue Devils.

DUKE 35-28, 3:41 1st: Binghamton is keeping it interesting. Tiki Mayben drilled a 3-pointer with Lance Thomas' hand in his face to key a 9-2 run that has the Bearcats right back in it. Foul trouble may start to catch up with Binghamton, though, as Scheyer just drew the third on Reggie Fuller.
