Duke's J.J. Redick was more efficient than Indiana's Marco Killingsworth, and he had more help.
Redick scored 29 points and Shelden Williams added 13 before fouling out as No. 1 Duke held off No. 17 Indiana 75-67 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge on Wednesday night.
Duke (6-0) is now 7-0 in the showcase event, but had to withstand an outstanding performance by Killingsworth - and a hostile Indiana crowd - to remain perfect.
Killingsworth was almost unstoppable for the Hoosiers (3-1). He scored a career-high 34 points in 34 minutes, was 15-of-20 from the field, had 10 rebounds and two blocks.
  • NO. 4 VILLANOVA 86, RIDER 57: Allan Ray scored 21 points and Kyle Lowry added a career-high 20 as No. 4 Villanova cruised.
    The Wildcats (3-0) had another big game from beyond the 3-point line, going 13-for-32, one game after setting a school record with 17 3s against Lehigh.
  • NO. 5 OKLAHOMA 62, TULSA 53: Terrell Everett scored a career-high 26 points, including three late free throws, to help No. 5 Oklahoma stave off a late rally in a win against Tulsa (1-3).
    Everett scored six of Oklahoma's points during a 10-4 run that gave the Sooners (4-0) a 47-28 lead with 11:32 left.
  • NO. 6 GONZAGA 89, PORTLAND ST. 80: Adam Morrison scored 34 points as No. 6 Gonzaga (4-1) used a dominant inside game to beat scrappy Portland State (3-3).
  • NO. 9 MEMPHIS 97, JACKSON ST. 70: Rodney Carney scored 25 points and matched his career-high with six 3-pointers, to lead No. 9 Memphis (5-1) past Jackson State (1-4).
  • NO. 13 MICHIGAN ST. 88, GEORGIA TECH 86: Michigan State's Paul Davis scored 22 points, and Georgia Tech's Zam Fredrick hit the rim on a shot from about 30 feet as time expired, giving the No. 13 Spartans a win in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
    Michigan State (4-2) led the entire game, but the Yellow Jackets (2-2) never let the home team get comfortable.
    Davis scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half for the Spartans, but his two missed free throws with 4.3 seconds left allowed Fredrick to get off a 3-pointer that would've given the young Yellow Jackets a huge win.
    Michigan State led by nine with 1:18, but its lead began to disappear after Anthony Morrow and Ra'Sean Dickey made three 3-pointers while the Spartans failed to seal the victory with free throws.
  • NO. 14 IOWA 45, NO. 24 NC STATE 42: Adam Haluska scored 18 points and No. 14 Iowa held on for a win over No. 24 North Carolina State in the final game of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
    Haluska hit consecutive baskets with less than five minutes to go to put Iowa (5-1) up 41-35. The Wolfpack (5-1) came back and had a final chance to tie, but Ilian Evtimov's desperation 3-pointer bounced off the rim just before the buzzer.
  • NO. 23 MARYLAND 83, MINNESOTA 66: Travis Garrison had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 23 Maryland overwhelmed injury-riddled Minnesota (2-2) in the second half en route to a win in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
    Nik Caner-Medley scored 16 points, and Mike Jones and D.J. Strawberry had 14 apiece for the Terrapins (5-1), who trailed by 15 in the early going and by six at halftime.
    Maryland outscored the Golden Gophers 47-24 in a second half that featured the ejection of Minnesota coach Dan Monson.
  • TENNESSEE 64, MURRAY ST. 53: Chris Lofton scored a game-high 18 points and spurred the game-breaking run as Tennessee (4-0) beat Murray State (1-2).
  • VANDERBILT 76, OREGON 75: Mario Moore hit a running three-pointer from 30 feet at the buzzer as Vanderbilt (5-0) stunned Oregon (4-1).
  • ARKANSAS 77, SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI 35: Ronnie Brewer scored 16 points to lead four Arkansas players in double figures, and the Razorbacks (4-2) allowed their fewest points since 1981 in a win over Southern Mississippi (1-4).
  • MISSISSIPPI STATE 67, NEW ORLEANS 59: Jamall Edmondson scored a career-high 26 points and hit six 3-pointers to lead Mississippi State (4-2) to a win over New Orleans (1-3). The Privateers relocated to Tyler, Texas, after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in August.
