#6 DUKE 82, Davidson 69 -- Mason Plumlee had 16 points and 13 rebounds, and teamed with older brother Miles to score 10 straight points during the run that carried No. 6 Duke (4-0) past pesky Davidson.

Austin Rivers and Seth Curry, the younger brother of former Davidson star Stephen Curry, both finished with 17 points for Duke (4-0), which was playing for the first time since Mike Krzyzewski became the winningest men's coach in Division I history.

TCU 57, VIRGINIA 55 -- Virgin Islands-Virginia sophomore guard Joe Harris missed a three-point attempt in the closing seconds after a steal of an inbounds pass by UVa junior guard Jontel Evans and TCU (3-0) held on for a 57-55 victory over the Cavaliers (2-1) in the opening round of the U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam.

Harris made a three-pointer with seven seconds remaining in the game to cut UVa's deficit to two points.

Holy Cross 86, BOSTON COLLEGE 64 -- Devin Brown scored 21 of his 32 points in the second half as Holy Cross pulled away for a win over the Eagles (1-1) in the 111th meeting between the schools.

R.J. Evans scored 14 points and Dave Dudzinski added 10 points for the Crusaders (1-2), who opened last season 0-8 and lost 13 of their first 14 games.

MARYLAND 78, Colorado 71-- Terrell Stoglin scored 25 of his career-high 32 points in the second half to lead Maryland to a victory over Colorado (1-2) in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Stoglin tied the single-game tournament record with 12 field goals, including 4-for-7 on 3-pointers, and keyed the run that put the Terrapins (2-1) ahead to stay. Sean Mosley added 16 points and Nick Faust 15.

GEORGIA TECH 73, VCU 60 -- Glen Rice Jr. scored 19 points in his first game back to lead Georgia Tech to victory over last year’s NCAA tournament darkhorse darling Virginia Commonwealth (1-2) in the Charleston Classic.

Rice had 11 points during an 18-4 run as the Yellow Jackets (3-1) overcame a 13-point deficit. 
Georgia Tech will take on LSU in Sunday's fifth-place game at TD Arena.
