Plumlee Leads No. 6 Duke Past Davidson, 82-69

DURHAM, N.C. - The Curry brothers got the attention. The Plumlee brothers took over the game.

Mason Plumlee had 16 points and 13 rebounds, and teamed with older brother Miles to score 10 straight points during the run that carried No. 6 Duke past pesky Davidson 82-69 on Friday night.

Austin Rivers and Seth Curry, the younger brother of former Davidson star Stephen Curry, both finished with 17 points for Duke (4-0), which was playing for the first time since Mike Krzyzewski became the winningest men's coach in Division I history.

The Blue Devils delivered Coach K's 904th career victory by holding Davidson without a field goal for 7 minutes during their game-breaking, Plumlee-led 25-4 run.

Pounding the ball inside-especially to the Plumlees-"was kind of brought up from our team," Miles Plumlee said. "Just guys knowing that we're bigger, stronger, and we just really needed to look inside for each other."

Maryland Tops Colorado, 78-71

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Terrell Stoglin scored 25 of his career-high 32 points in the second half to lead Maryland to a 78-71 victory over Colorado on Friday in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Stoglin tied the single-game tournament record with 12 field goals, including 4-for-7 on 3-pointers, and keyed the run that put the Terrapins (2-1) ahead to stay. Sean Mosley added 16 points and Nick Faust 15.

Andre Roberson had a double-double for the Buffaloes (1-2) with 21 points and 13 rebounds. Carlon Brown scored 14 points and Austin Dufault 12 for Colorado, which led by 12 in the first half.

Roberson gave Colorado a 60-56 lead with 8:25 left. But Stoglin scored eight straight to finish an 11-0 run that put Maryland ahead 67-60 with 6:01 to play.
