College Basketball Roundup

DURHAM ó Krystal Thomas scored 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to help No. 3 Duke beat Georgia Tech 69-32 on Friday night.
Tricia Liston added nine points off the bench for the Blue Devils (18-0, 4-0 ACC), who defeated the Yellow Jackets for the 32nd consecutive time.
Duke blew open the game with a 13-0 run early in the second half, extending its home winning streak to 18 games. It was the 100th victory for Joanne P. McCallie as coach of the Blue Devils.
Three players scored six points to lead the Yellow Jackets (16-5, 4-1), whose school-record 13-game winning streak ended in their most lopsided loss of the season.
Alex Montgomery, who entered the game averaging a team-high 14.5 points, finished with a season-low two points on 0-for-7 shooting from the field.
ATLANTIC 10 SHOWDOWN
CINCINNATI ó Only four games into conference play, the Atlantic 10 gets an early showdown between the teams that shared its last regular-season title.
Xavier and Temple share some A-10 history that’s on the line, too.
The Musketeers (12-5, 4-0) have won their last 34 home games in league play, which matches the longest such streak in A-10 history. Their partner in the record? Temple (13-4, 3-1), which ran off 34 in a row from 1987-91 and is in position to keep Xavier from pulling ahead today.
CALíS CURSING
LEXINGTON, Ky. ó John Calipari’s word choice could have been better and he knows it.
The Kentucky coach, however, stands by his message to freshman Terrence Jones and the rest of the Wildcats during a loss to Alabama on Tuesday: It’s time to stop worrying about your numbers and start worrying about your chances to compete for a Southeastern Conference title.
Cameras caught Calipari loudly swearing at Jones during a stoppage in play late in the second half. The coach later apologized on his Facebook page and his Twitter feed for his language.
By Friday he was ready to move on, more worried about Kentucky’s inability to win on the road than any fallout over letting his emotions get the best of him. He brushed off questions about the incident, but reiterated the Wildcats (14-4, 2-2) can’t continue to be selfish if they want to repeat as conference champions.
