Rivers helps No. 7 Duke beat Colorado State, 87-64

December 7, 2011

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke played so many games in the first two weeks of the season that coach Mike Krzyzewski's team had relatively little time to refine itself on the practice court. The seventh-ranked Blue Devils are starting to get that chance.

Freshman guard Austin Rivers scored 17 points to help Duke beat Colorado State 87-64 on Wednesday night, a successful return from a weeklong break following a lopsided loss at Ohio State.

AP sources: Southern Miss' Fedora accepts UNC job

December 7, 2011

Two people familiar with the situation say Southern Mississippi coach Larry Fedora has accepted an offer to become North Carolina's next football coach.

They say the framework of a deal is in place, though it isn't final yet. Both people spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the school isn't commenting publicly on its search.

Fedora has guided the 22nd-ranked Golden Eagles to a school-record 11 wins and the Conference USA championship. Southern Miss faces Nevada in the Hawaii Bowl on Dec. 24.
