Darrion Williams scores 30 to lead Texas Tech over No. 6 Kansas 79-50


LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Darrion Williams scored a career-high 30 points on 12-of-12 shooting, including four of Texas Tech’s 10 3-pointers, and the Red Raiders never trailed in a 79-50 win over sixth-ranked Kansas on Monday night.

Williams, a sophomore transfer from Nevada, also had 11 rebounds. He hit a 3 on the first shot of the game by the Red Raiders (18-6, 7-4 Big 12), who were 8 of 12 from long range over the first 13 minutes while jumping ahead 27-14.

Jayhawks coach Bill Self was ejected with 5:49 remaining after getting two technical fouls while expressing his displeasure about an offensive foul against Hunter Dickinson.

Warren Washington had 11 points for Tech.

Nicolas Timberlake and Johnny Furphy each had 13 points for Kansas (19-6, 7-5). Dajuan Harris finished with seven points on 2-of-8 shooting, while Dickinson was limited to five points while missing 10 of his 12 shots.


DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Mark Mitchell scored 23 points while star big man Kyle Filipowski posted his first double-double in nearly three weeks as Duke fought off Wake Forest.

Filipowski had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Blue Devils (19-5, 10-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who repeatedly answered pushes by the Demon Deacons (16-8, 8-5) that kept them hanging around within two possessions or so for much of the second half. But they never could overtake the Blue Devils, who led for the final 17 1/2 minutes but still had a fight on their hands to the final moments.

Wake Forest was chasing its first win in Cameron Indoor Stadium since January 1997.

Hunter Sallis scored 22 points for the Demon Deacons.
