DUKE DUO IS TOO MUCH FOR MICHIGAN STATE

Duke's basketball team again had the upper hand over Michigan State, thanks to J.J. Redick and Daniel Ewing.

The backcourt duo each scored 29 points and made five three-pointers, helping the 10th-ranked Blue Devils hold off the No. 11 Spartans, 81-74, on Tuesday night in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge in Durham, N.C.

Redick had 21 points in the first half, and Ewing took up the slack after the break, scoring 15. Duke (4-0) improved to 6-0 in the made-for-TV challenge and beat the Spartans (3-1) for the second straight season.

Elsewhere, DeWitt Maxwell scored five of his 22 points in the second overtime as Fairfield beat Manhattan, 81-73, in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Terrence Todd also scored 22 for Fairfield (3-2, 1-0 MAAC), including 19 after halftime. Peter Mulligan led Manhattan (3-1, 0-1) with 19 points.
