DURHAM, N.C. (AP) RJ Barrett continued his rookie-season scoring rush, finishing with 27 points to help second-ranked Duke beat Princeton 101-50 on Tuesday night.

Fellow freshman Zion Williamson had 17 points and 10 rebounds in the Blue Devils' first game in more than a week due to an exam break. Duke (10-1) got off to a cold start and didn't take its first lead until more than 14 minutes in, but eventually got rolling and handed the Tigers their most lopsided loss in program history.

Duke scored on 10 of 11 possessions to close the first half, then on four straight out of the break to take a 48-28 lead. The Blue Devils shot 64 percent after halftime as the game turned into a rout.

Tigers' Hardaway criticizes Vols' Barnes

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) The verbal jabs between Memphis coach Penny Hardaway and Tennessee's Rick Barnes continued Tuesday with Hardaway saying "it was kind of low class" for the Vols coach to imply the Tigers were flopping during their game on Saturday.

"I don't know who Rick Barnes thinks I am, but I'm not a dude who likes to mess around about anything," Hardaway said during his media availability Tuesday afternoon. "I just call it how I see it, no matter how he's trying to make things seem. I think it's kind of low class, how he's trying to downgrade my guys for flopping and all that. Come on, give me a break."

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Jalen Perry scored 17 points, Makhtar Gueye added a career-high 15 points with five rebounds and three assists, and UAB beat Alcorn State 76-49 on Tuesday night to improve to 5-0 at home.

Vandy upends No. 18 Arizona State 81-65

Kansas, Duke remain atop new AP poll

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Kansas didn't get the chance to hold onto its preseason No. 1 ranking in the AP Top 25 very long, even as an unbeaten team. The Jayhawks are sticking around this time.

The Jayhawks sat atop Monday's latest men's college basketball poll for a second straight week. That didn't happen earlier this season, when Duke jumped Kansas to take No. 1 in the first regular-season poll after a dominating romp against Kentucky despite the fact the Jayhawks had beaten a top-10 Michigan State team.


Forrest helps No. 11 FSU top SE Missouri

Gardner-Webb stuns Georgia Tech 79-69

ATLANTA (AP) Gardner-Webb went right at Georgia Tech Monday night, and the Runnin' Bulldogs may have come away from their 79-69 upset win over the Yellow Jackets a little surprised after DJ Laster scored 20 of his career high-tying 25 points before intermission.

When the Bulldogs closed the first half on a 12-2 run, Laster scored five layups as Gardner-Webb (8-5) attacked Tech (5-4) with no hesitation on the way to a sixth straight win.

Meanwhile, No. 2 Duke will meet No. 12 Texas Tech and No. 9 North Carolina faces No. 19 Kentucky in neutral-court games.
