EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Freshman point guard Tyus Jones scored 21 points, Justise Winslow hit two key baskets late in the game and No. 2 Duke responded to a tongue lashing by coach Mike Krzyzewski to beat defending national champion Connecticut 66-56 on Thursday night.

Winslow and Jahlil Okafor — the other two members of the Blue Devils' trio of talented freshmen — added 12 points apiece. Ahead 30-25 at the break, Duke (10-0) got off to a slow start in the second half and UConn (4-4) tied it, raising Coach K's ire.

Amile Jefferson added 11 points and 13 rebounds for Duke in a game that had the feel and intensity of a NCAA tournament contest.

Ryan Boatright had 22 points to lead the Huskies. Kentan Facey added 14 points and Daniel Hamilton had 10.

NO. 6 VIRGINIA 70, CLEVELAND STATE 54

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Justin Anderson scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and No. 6 Virginia returned from an 11-day layoff for exams to defeat Cleveland State.

Malcolm Brogdon also scored 16 and Anthony Gill had 13 for the Cavaliers (10-0), who matched their best start since the 2001-01 season. Next up for Virginia is a visit from scrappy Harvard on Sunday.

Trey Lewis scored 18 to lead the Vikings (5-6). Cleveland State scored just four points in the first 13 1/2 minutes against the Cavaliers' top-ranked scoring defense.
