Singler Leads No. 10 Duke Past No. 21 Georgia Tech, 86-67
Kyle Singler went to the bench and clutched his banged-up right wrist. Then he came back onto the court, rattled in a 3-pointer to beat the halftime buzzer and kept making those long-range shots during the second half.

That pesky wrist injury certainly couldn't slow the Duke star. Georgia Tech's defense didn't stand a chance, either.

Singler had career highs of 30 points and eight 3-pointers to lead the 10th-ranked Blue Devils past the 21st-ranked Yellow Jackets 86-67 on Thursday night.

Hokies stay perfect at home with victory over North Carolina
Malcolm Delaney, Jeff Allen and Terrell Bell all made key free throw in the waning seconds, as Virginia Tech remained perfect at home this season following a 74-70 win over North Carolina in an ACC game played Thursday night at Cassell Coliseum.

The victory moved Tech to 17-4 overall and 4-3 in the ACC. The Hokies moved to 11-0 at Cassell Coliseum and avenged a 78-64 loss to the Tar Heels earlier this season. In fact, Tech snapped a five-game losing streak to UNC.

The Tar Heels (13-9, 2-5 ACC) led 43-42 following a John Henson basket with 15:20 left in the game, but Tech retook the lead on a Delaney bucket 27 seconds later and never trailed again.

Maryland Fights Off Florida State, 71-67
