No. 5 Duke Cruises Past Virginia 67-49

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Kyle Singler scored 21 points as No. 5 Duke beat shorthanded Virginia 67-49 on Sunday night.

The Blue Devils (25-4, 12-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) remained a game ahead of Maryland heading into a first-place showdown with the Terps in College Park, Md., on Wednesday night.

Jon Scheyer added 20 points for Duke in its eight straight win and fourth consecutive victory in the series.

The Blue Devils took command right away, opening the game on a 20-4 run. Singler had 11 points before Virginia had two field goals, and from there the Cavaliers never got closer than 10.

The Cavaliers (14-13, 5-9) lost their seventh straight playing without scoring leader Sylven Landesberg, who sustained a bruised right thigh in Virginia's loss at Miami last week.

Jerome Meyinsse led Virginia with 21 points.

    On last night's 11pm Sports Brian Meador stated that Duke beat UVA in a "pillow fight" apparently meaning that UVA did not provide much of a game for #5 Duke. While this is true, Mr Meador failed to provide the viewers with the important info that UVA played w/o their leading scorer, who is also one of the top scorers in the ACC. That Sylvan Landesberg was unable to play was an important component as to why this game wasn't very competitive or, a "pillow fight". I submit this kind of reporting in not reporting but commentary which is not necessary. What is necessary is info that relates to the game, which Mr Landesberg's absence no doubt had an effect on the outcome. I do believe that Duke would have won anyway but it was unnecessary to "diss" UVA w/o providing complete info for your viewers. Leave the commentary out of your reporting please.
