BOSTON (AP) — Jordan Nwora scored a career-high 37 points and added nine rebounds to lead sixth-ranked Louisville to an 86-69 victory over Boston College. The ACC preseason player of the year was two points shy of Richard Hamilton's record for an opponent at the Conte Forum. Derryck Thornton scored 17 points and Jay Heath had 16 for BC. The Eagles have lost five of six.

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Vernon Carey Jr. scored 26 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as No. 9 Duke beat Pittsburgh 79-67 on a night when both teams honored Kobe Bryant during a pregame ceremony at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The somber opening gave way to a testy battle on the court that included an eruption by Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski — in the direction of his own fans. The Hall of Fame coach was angered by the Cameron Crazies directing a playful chant at Pittsburgh coach Jeff Capel. Krzyzewski came across the court to scold the fans for chanting at the opposing coach.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — T.J. Gibbs scored a team-high 23 points, John Mooney regained his double-double touch with 19 points and 13 rebounds, and reserves Nate Laszewski and Dane Goodwin totaled 32 points as Notre Dame broke a two-game losing streak with a 90-80 Atlantic Coast Conference victory over Wake Forest. Laszewski, a 6-foot-10 swingman, scored a season-high 18 points and Goodwin added 14 for Mike Brey's Fighting Irish, who won their first league game at the Purcell Pavilion this season. Brandon Childress had a game-high 24 points to lead Wake Forest which dropped its third straight game.
