Michigan St. powers past New Orleans

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Keith Appling scored 16 of his career-high tying 27 points in the first half to help Michigan State rout New Orleans 101-48.

The Spartans (11-1) struggled for several minutes before taking control with a 12-0 run midway through the first half. They led 44-27 at halftime and easily added to their comfortable cushion in the second half, finishing with their highest-scoring game since beating Nebraska-Omaha 110-68 two years ago.

Matt Derenbecker scored 16 points and Cory Dixon had 11 for the Privateers (3-5), who had won two straight.

No. 4 Wisconsin 80, Prairie View A&M 43: MADISON, Wis. — Sam Dekker had 16 points and 11 rebounds for his third career double-double as Wisconsin improved to 13-0 for its best start since the 1913-14 squad went 15-0.

Ben Brust scored 11 for the Badgers in their nonconference finale. Frank Kaminsky and Nigel Hayes added 10 points apiece.

Montrael Scott scored 14 to lead the Panthers (2-10), who finished 1-8 on a nine-game road swing.

Playing for the first time in two weeks, the Badgers were a little rusty from 3-point range. Averaging 40 percent coming in, they finishing 9 for 27 from beyond the arc. However, everything else was working as they dominated at the free-throw line and in rebounding while committing just two turnovers.

No. 9 Duke 82, Eastern Michigan 59: DURHAM, N.C. — Jabari Parker scored 23 points and Duke cruised past Eastern Michigan.

Andre Dawkins added 20 points with a season-high six 3-pointers as a late replacement for an ill Rodney Hood in the starting lineup. Rasheed Sulaimon had 13 points and came up with the key hustle play during the decisive second-half run that helped the Blue Devils (10-2) polish off their fourth straight win.

They shot 40 percent against Eastern Michigan’s tough matchup zone defense with 10 3-pointers, built a 47-32 advantage on the boards and wrapped up the pre-ACC home schedule with their 101st straight nonconference win at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
