NEW YEAR’S EVE HOOPS

NO. 7 DUKE 114, Penn (Quakers, 20,128 students, Philadelphia, PA) 55 - Nolan Smith scored 23 points to help the seventh-ranked Blue Devils beat Pennsylvania 114-55 on Thursday night in their final tune-up before opening the league schedule here against Clemson this weekend.

Kyle Singler added 20 points for the Blue Devils (11-1), who took control of the game early en route to their fifth straight victory. Duke led by double figures in the first 5 minutes, then ran off a 23-3 run that blew the game open and turned the rest of the contest into a formality.

The Blue Devils shot 60 percent, hit 10 of 21 3-pointers and finished with a season-high scoring output to extend the Quakers' miserable start. By the time it was over, Duke scored the most points ever allowed by Penn (0-9) while handing the Quakers their most lopsided loss in program history.

NO. 22 FLORIDA STATE 81, Alabama A&M (Bulldogs, 5,000 students, Normal, AL) 31- FSU (12-2, 1-0 ACC) rode a record-setting defensive performance to a rout of Alabama A&M, allowing the fewest points in Civic Center history. The Seminoles smothered the Bulldogs (3-5) in the second half, allowing them to score just 10 points on 4-of-22 shooting.

Deividas Dulkys led FSU with 19 points, tying his career high. Dulkys, the Seminoles' top 3-point threat, hit five of eight from beyond the arc, but called the performance "just another day."

N.C. STATE 89, UNC Greensboro (Spartans, 14,792 students, Greensboro, NC) 67

WAKE FOREST 74, Richmond (Spiders, 4,250 students, Richmond, VA) 68 OT
