Just days after their shocking loss to Boston College, the No. 1 Syracuse Orange have met defeat once again. Last night, the No. 5 Duke Blue Devils stepped up in the second half to come away with a 66-60 win over the nation’s best. Both Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood (pictured) had strong contributions for the Blue Devils, with Parker pulling the Nike Air Max LeBron VII Low out of his stash.
A number of other Top 25 teams were in action yesterday, including No. 8 Kansas taking on No. 19 Texas, No. 7 Cincinnati meeting No. 11 Louisville, and much more. Be sure to check the complete gallery to see night’s best sneakers on the hardwood.
In the NBA, Minnesota’s Kevin Love continued his outstanding season with 37 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists to record his first career triple-double in the Timberwolves’ win over Utah. Unfortunately, his 361 Degrees PE isn’t available in the States, but we’ll be sure to update you if anything changes. Atlanta’s Mike Scott looked good against the Knicks with 30 points on 11-14 shooting, and Nene Hilario of the Wizards torched New Orleans with 30 points and 7 rebounds.
There’s all this and plenty more of Saturday’s best action after the jump.
