Duke Too Much For Tech

(Atlanta, GA) -- Kammeon Holsey had 12 points but Georgia Tech fell flat in last night's 68-51 loss to sixth-ranked Duke at McCamish Pavilion.  Robert Carter Jr. added 13 points off the bench as the Yellow Jackets fell to 13-13 with a 4-9 ACC mark. Tech hosts Clemson Saturday.

Aggies Fall To San Diego State

(San Diego, CA) -- Utah State lost to number-seven San Diego State 60-45 in California. The Aggies got 10 points each from Jarred Shaw and Spencer Butterfield. USU is 5-9 in the Mountain West and 15-11 overall, with Fresno State next on the schedule on Saturday in Logan.

No. 19 Iowa State Tops No. 17 Texas

Isaiah Taylor tallied a game-high 26 points to go with eight assists and seven boards for the Longhorns, who fell to 20-6 and 9-4. Texas travels to eighth-ranked Kansas Saturday.

Iowa-Indiana Game Cancelled

(Bloomington, IN) -- Officials at Indiana University aren't sure why a piece of metal fell from the ceiling of historic Assembly Hall forcing cancellation of Tuesday's basketball game between Indiana and Iowa. IU Athletic Director Fred Glass said a crew of engineers inspecting the building believe it may be weather related. A piece of metal facing roughly eight feet long and 14 inches wide fell and damaged seats about six-and-a-half hours before the game was scheduled to tipoff. Glass didn't say when the men's team will be able to play again at Assembly Hall. He said they plan to work around the clock to fix the problem.

Illinois Faces Minnesota Tonight

(Minneapolis, MN) -- Illinois is on the court tonight at Minnesota to face the Golden Gophers. The Fighting Illini sit at 14-12 with a 3-and-10 Big Ten mark after Saturday's loss to Ohio State. Minnesota is 17-9 with a 6-7 conference record. Tip from Williams Arena is scheduled for 8 p.m.
