MONDAY HOOPS

UCLA 71, MARYLAND 59
Kevin Love scored 18 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, helping #2/#1UCLA (Bruins, 25,432 students, Los Angeles, CA) overcome a sloppy first half in a 71-59 victory over Maryland on Monday night in the semifinals of the CBE Classic.
UCLA (4-0) had just eight scholarship players in uniform due to injuries to several key players including starting point guard Darren Rollison. It showed early with numerous turnovers and bad shots.

UCLA shot just 37 percent, including 4-of-13 from 3-point range, but out-rebounded the Terrapins 44-29 to move onto the championship game Tuesday night against Michigan State.

Maryland, which has struggled its past two games barely beating Hampton and Northeastern, continues to run the WTFO? offense. The Terps had 21 turnovers and were just 1-for-11 on 3-pointers, keeping their streak of at least one 3-pointer alive at 289 games when Eric Hayes connected with 28 seconds left.

WAKE FOREST 75, NORTH CAROLINA CENTRAL (Eagles, 4,000 students, Durham, NC) 58

GEORGIA TECH 70, NOTRE DAME (Fighting Irish, 11,479 students, South Bend, IN) 69

DUKE 83, PRINCETON 61
Freshman forward Kyle Singler had 21 points and 12 rebounds as #10 Duke kept its perfect record on Maui intact with an 83-61 victory over Princeton (Tigers, 4,923 students, Princenton, NJ) on Monday night in the opening round of the EA Sports Maui Invitational.

Duke, which won the title here in 1992, 1997 and 2001, is 10-0 on the island and six of the wins have been by 20 points or more. The Blue Devils had that big a lead against Princeton seven minutes into this game.

At one point, it was 38-8. That was the point we stopped watching.
