Nov. 25, 2009
NEW YORK (AP) -Jon Scheyer had 16 points and six assists, and No. 7 Duke used a 19-3 second-half run to take control of a 64-53 victory over Arizona State on Wednesday night in the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off.
Nolan Smith had 14 points and Kyle Singler added 13 for Duke (5-0), which led by only four at halftime.
The Sun Devils (4-1), who managed to stay close behind their patient offense and pesky zone defense, tied it at 43 on two free throws by Derek Glasser with 13:11 to play only to see Duke break it open with the deciding run.
The Blue Devils will face No. 13 Connecticut in the championship game Friday at Madison Square Garden. The Huskies beat LSU 81-55 in the other semifinal.
