No. 3 Gonzaga upsets No. 1 Duke for Maui Invitational title

No. 3 Gonzaga upsets No. 1 Duke for Maui Invitational title

The tournament included a full-page tribute to the late O'Connell in its program and reserved a seat for him in the media workroom, with a lei draped over his seat.

Auburn has shot very poorly in the first half, 33.3 %, but toward the end of the first half they began to hit some of their shots at the Blue Devils became very stagnant on offense and weren't contesting the Auburn shots.

"They were just dictating the flow", Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "This was one of his favorite, favorites, and he was the only guy to ever come here and never see the beach".

The other team's star players were just as lethal, especially in the first half of play, where the Bulldogs built themselves an insurmountable lead off the back of Rui Hachimura's efficient 20-point performance.

Thomas finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds for Clemson (5-0), off to its best start since the 2013-14 season.

The same went for Gonzaga on Wednesday. Norvell had 15 and Jones added 14 points and 11 rebounds.

That left eight scholarship players for the Maui opener against Arizona, but it didn't slow them early. Ayo Dosunmu led the Fighting Illini with 19 points, while Trent Frazier added 18 and Aaron Jordan 16.

R.J. Barrett led all scorers with 23 points, but his Duke Blue Devils lost 89-87 to Gonzaga at the Maui Invitational. Gonzaga proved to be a flawless match for the Blue Devils and they prevailed after leading by as many as 15 points.

Duke has been the talk of college basketball since its highly-touted freshmen shot the season out of a canon with a blowout win over then-No.

San Diego State (3-1) was blown out by top-ranked Duke in its Maui opener and fell behind by 19 early against Xavier (2-3). Zion Williamson dropped a double-double, 22 points, and 10 boards in the loss.

The 5-1 Blue Devils trailed by 16 in the second half before tying it at 87. Williamson had 13 points in 18 minutes.

Quentin Goodin led Xavier with 20 points.

The Bulldogs held on for an 84-78 win over a gritty IL team, but it was hardly as easy as it appeared it would be for most of the game at the Lahaina Civic Center.

But Reddish calmly sank an open 3-pointer just nine seconds later restoring Duke's eight-point lead at 64-56.

Ryan Welage had 17 points and Paul Scruggs 16 for the Musketeers. Shelton Mitchell, who scored a season-high 22 on Monday, chipped in with 13 points and David Skara had three of the Tigers' nine steals.

Xavier tied it at 77-all with 26 seconds left in regulation on Tyrique Jones' two free throws and Brown's last-second shot came up well short.

The Maui Invitational has a marquee matchup for its title game.

That led to loud cheers inside the Lahaina Civic Center from a crowd dominated by Iowa State fans.

Talen Horton-Tucker had 26 points and 14 rebounds, Michael Jacobson added 23 points and Iowa State ran away from IL in the second half for an 84-68 victory Tuesday in the Maui Invitational.

Ohio State (5-0) seemed out of sync from the opening tip, as coach Chris Holtmann benched four starters for being late to "game-day preparation", according to the school.
