UCF leads Cincinnati 19-15 at the half in Orlando, putting the Knights and the Bearcats within shouting distance of the record for fewest combined points in a D-I game since 1986 (62). We knew coming into the game that these were two of the best defenses in the country. We were right.

Purdue's living up to its No. 3 ranking and rolling over Wisconsin 39-22 at the half in West Lafayette. Carsen Edwards has led the Boilermakers with 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting. Whether it's the Boilers, Ohio State or Michigan State, the highest NCAA tournament seed from the Big Ten could be a very tough out in March.

There might not be a more pivotal game than Georgia@LSU tonight. @ESPNU Both teams are within 4-5 spots of the at-large cut line and will meet a second time on Feb. 24. Significant if either can sweep the other, so pressure is on LSU to hold serve at home.

After losing to Kansas last night, West Virginia's chances of earning a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament dropped to below 1%, per BPI. Not going to happen.

ESPN Stats and Information  

On Monday, there were three games involving ranked teams. Each game was won by teams overcoming double-digit deficits.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

It certainly was not pretty at times for Duke, between the turnovers and inability to score through a long stretch in the second half. But with Marvin Bagley III essentially contained, Gary Trent Jr. stepped up in a big way and the Blue Devils overcame a 13-point deficit to win.

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

Michigan's Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman made a pair of free throws with 1.2 second to give the Wolverines a 68-67 win at home against Maryland. The Terps took a 67-66 lead moments earlier, but a perfect half-court pass to Abdur-Rahkman gave him enough time to take a few dribbles toward the hoop and pick up the foul.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

The second half has been a game of runs: First Miami took the lead off a 16-0 run, and now Duke has taken back the lead with a 15-0 run of its own. Needless to say, this game is a microcosm for what Duke has done all season: a talented team that struggles on D but is nearly as unstoppable as any when the offense is clicking.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami has taken control in the second half, not only playing with a higher intensity level but also way more controlled. The Canes are forcing turnovers, scoring in transition and hitting 3s. Marvin Bagley III has been taken out of the game, and nobody else is in sync on offense for Duke.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke already has 15 turnovers tonight against Miami. Its season high is 19, against South Dakota in December.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami opened the second half on a quick 7-2 run, forcing Duke into more mistakes while getting a few more clutch plays from freshman Chris Lykes.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

One thing you can bet Mike Krzyzewski is going to want to get cleaned up at halfime: turnovers. Duke had 12 turnovers in the first half, more than it averages over an entire game.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

As if it needed to be said again, the freshmen talent Duke has across its roster makes it so good and so fun to watch. In the first half against Miami, Wendell Carter Jr. and Gary Trent Jr. took center stage, combining for 23 points as the Blue Devils have a small lead at halftime.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke freshman forward Wendell Carter Jr. has been difficult for Miami to slow down in the first half - he already has 10 rebounds and nine points and has been nearly unstoppable.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Marvin Bagley III has been a non-factor in the early going, and you wonder if getting banged up in the early going has had an effect. Bagley is 0-3 from the field, scoring both points on free throws, with 7:42 to go in the first half.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami freshman Chris Lykes has made his presence felt early for Miami, finding his way to make some big three-point plays to give the Canes their biggest spark in the early going.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke forward Marvin Bagley III returned to the floor after the first timeout after heading to the locker room to address a shoulder issue. Bagley appeared to get banged in the first minute of the game against Miami.

Purdue has almost caught Villanova in BPI's latest ratings and rankings. The model, which predicts team strength going forward, is not buying teams like Oklahoma, Arizona State and Kentucky the way the AP voters are.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Villanova with two assistants here at #HHClassic for former Louisville commit Courtney Ramey. One of the best unsigned point guards in 2018.
