STORRS, Conn. -

Durrell Summers scored 21 points, and No. 2 Michigan State warmed up for its showdown with top-ranked Duke with a 73-55 win against Tennessee Tech on Sunday.

The Spartans (5-1) will surely drop in the rankings before taking on the Blue Devils at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Wednesday night. Michigan State lost to Connecticut earlier this week at the Maui Invitational, although the Spartans bounced back with a victory vs. Washington.

They also had little trouble with Tennessee Tech (0-3).

At least the Golden Eagles were able to play this game. Their home opener Tuesday night was canceled when visiting Appalachian State failed to supply officials.



Kim English scored a season-high 18 points after going scoreless in his last outing and Missouri (5-0) rolled past Arkansas-Pine Bluff (0-6).


NO. 21 TEMPLE 51

David Loubeau scored 13 points, Naji Hibbert added 12 and Texas A&M (5-1) beat Temple (3-2) in the consolation bracket of the Old Classic Spice.

NO. 25 N. CAROLINA 74,


John Henson (Sickles) scored a career-high 19 points and ignited the decisive second-half run to help North Carolina (4-2) beat the College of Charleston (4-3).

Henson also had seven rebounds and two blocked shots.

UConn women win 84th straight game

Maya Moore scored 26 points and Tiffany Hayes added 20 points and seven assists as top-ranked Connecticut (6-0) won for the 84th consecutive time, beating LSU 81-51 (4-4).
