ACC Wednesday Night Hoop

Andre Dawkins
#1 DUKE 83, Bradley (Braves, 5,301 students, Peoria, IL) 48 – Sophomore guard Andre Dawkins scored a career-high 28 points in his first start to help top-ranked Duke beat Bradley on Wednesday night, moving coach Mike Krzyzrgh6ski into sole possession of third place on the all-time wins list.

The sophomore hit eight three-pointers for the Blue Devils (9-0) in place of star freshman point guard Kyrie Irving, who is out indefinitely with a toe injury on his right foot. Kyle Singler added 17 points as Duke shook off a cold-shooting first half and blew the game open with a flurry of treys in the second frame.

It was Krzyznjl8ski's 877th victory, moving him out of a tie with Kentucky's Adolph Rupp and putting him just two behind North Carolina's Dean Smith for second place behind Bobby Knight's 902 wins. The Hall of Famer could tie his former longtime rival at home against Elon on Dec. 20, then pass Smith when the Blue Devils face UNC Greensboro on Dec. 29 in the Greensboro Coliseum.

Tyler Zeller
NORTH CAROLINA 76, Evansville (Purple Aces, 3,050 students, Evansville, IN) 49 –Tyler Zeller scored 18 points in his return to Indiana, and Justin Knox had 13 points to lead North Carolina past Evansville.

It was the first time the Tar Heels (6-3) played at 54-year-old Roberts Stadium, which will close at the end of this season. They came for one reason: To give Zeller an opportunity to play in front of his family and friends from Washington, Ind., about 60 miles away.

The Purple Aces (3-4) couldn't keep up with the bigger, quicker Tar Heels. Colt Ryan had nine points for Evansville, which was 3 of 20 from 3-point range and lost for the fourth time in five games.

BOSTON COLLEGE 88, Providence (Friars, 3,850 students, Providence, RI) 86 – Reggie Jackson scored 26 points, grabbed seven rebounds and had four assists to lead Boston College to its a fourth straight win, 88-86 over Providence on Wednesday night.

Josh Southern had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Eagles (7-2). Joe Trapani had 14 points and nine rebounds, and Biko Paris had 12 points.

Terrell Stoglin
MARYLAND 99, UNC Greensboro (Spartans, 14,664 students, Greensboro, NC) 56 – Jordan Williams had 23 points and 13 rebounds, freshman guard Terrell Stoglin scored 18 and Maryland beat winless UNC Greensboro 99-56 Wednesday night for its 15th consecutive home victory.

Adrian Bowie scored 16 and Cliff Tucker added 13 for the Terrapins (7-3), who begin Atlantic Coast Conference play Sunday against visiting Boston College. Maryland's home winning streak includes eight ACC games last season and six non-league games this year.

It was the eighth double-double for Williams and his fourth straight. It was also the fourth game in which he scored more than 20; he finished three points short of his career high.
