#6 DUKE 68, #14 Kansas 61 – Tyler Thornton capped a thrilling game between basketball behemoths, hitting an off-balance 3-pointer with 20 seconds left to give the sixth-ranked Blue Devils (7-0) enough cushion to finish off a 68-61 win over No. 14 Kansas (3-2) for its fifth Duke Hawaiian (Maui) Invitational title.

“It’s a dream shot,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “People will say it’s a lucky shot, but I’ll say I’m lucky to have him on my team. Sometimes you’re on a bus with a guy who deserves and for that moment we were on his bus. Thank goodness he knew how to drive it.”

GEORGIA TECH 72, Siena 44 – Glen Rice Jr. scored 23 points, Kammeon Holsey added 14 and Georgia Tech beat Siena  on Wednesday night.

#5 Syracuse 69, VIRGINIA TECH 58 – The fifth-ranked Orange shook off a slow first half and was able to pull away for a victory over Virginia Tech (3-1) on Wednesday night in the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off at Madison Square Garden.

Kris Joseph had 20 points and 10 rebounds and Brandon Triche added 18 points for the Orange (5-0), who will play Stanford in the championship game Friday night. Jarrell Eddie had 17 points for the Hokies, while Erick Green added 14 and Dorenzo Hudson 13.
