FLORIDA STATE 78, GEORGIA STATE 48
Uche Echefu scored a career-high 18 points, and Florida State snapped its two-game losing streak with a 78-48 win over Georgia State (Panthers, 19,884 students, Atlanta, GA) on Tuesday night.

Echefu made 6-of-7 from the field, including 2-for-3 from the 3-point line and 4-for-4 from the free throw line. He added five rebounds.

VIRGINIA 72, DREXEL 58
Sean Singletary had 24 points, seven rebounds and five assists and No. 23 Virginia returned to the magical kingdom known as John Paul Jones Arena after an impressive trip out West with a 72-58 victory against Drexel (Dragons, 12,906 students, Philadelphia, PA) on Tuesday night.

The Cavaliers (4-0), used a 10-2 run in the second half to stretch their lead to double digits.

After the game, Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint (yes, that’s his real name) said, “Are we in Tennessee or Virginia, this John Paul Jones thing has me confused? Maybe we’ll rename our place Johnny Cochran Arena after the famous World War II tank commander Major Johnny Carson Cochran. He used to blow up stuff and then put on a USO show. In real life he was an attorney, you know.” (AP Photo/Andrew Shurtleff)

DUKE 79, ILLINOIS 66
Gerald “Harry and the” Henderson scored 23 points and DeMarcus “Ozzie and Harriet” Nelson added 16 to lead the 13th-ranked Blue Devils to a 79-66 victory over Illinois (Fighting Illini, 31,472 students, Champaign, IL) on Tuesday night in the semifinals of the EA Sports Maui Invitational.

Duke (4-0) will meet No. 11 Marquette, which beat Oklahoma State 91-61, on Wednesday night for the shot at title No. 4.

The Golden Eagles beat Duke 73-62 in the finals of the CBE Classic in Kansas City, Mo., last November, and most of that Marquette team is back.
