Georgia Tech upsets Duke

January 11, 2007|From the Associated Press

Ra'Sean Dickey scored a season-high 21 points, Javaris Crittenton made two key baskets down the stretch and Georgia Tech held on for a rare win over No. 11 Duke, beating the Blue Devils, 74-63, on Wednesday night at Atlanta.

Duke (13-3, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) lost its second game in a row, failing to rebound from a home loss to Virginia Tech, and is off to its worst start in the ACC since 1996.

That same season also had been the last time Georgia Tech (12-4, 1-2 ACC) defeated the Blue Devils at home. Duke had won 21 of 22 over its conference rival.

Jon Scheyer scored 16 for Duke.

Marquette 73, Connecticut 69 -- Ousman Barro had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and the Golden Eagles (14-4, 1-2 Big East) used a 16-2 second-half run to end the Huskies' 31-game home winning streak. Doug Wiggins had 19 points for the Huskies (12-3, 1-2).

San Diego 78, UC Riverside 62 -- Gyno Pomare had 22 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Toreros (10-6) past the Highlanders (3-14) at San Diego. Chris Johnson scored 25 for Riverside.
