Top-ranked Duke beats Penn State in Tip-Off tournament
UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) Freshman Frank Jackson led five players in double figures with 17 points and top-ranked Duke defeated Penn State 78-68 Saturday in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off tournament.
Amile Jefferson added 16 points and 16 rebounds for the Blue Devils (3-1), who lost forward Chase Jeter to injury early in the game. The 6-foot-10 sophomore rolled his left ankle in the first half and didn't return.
Tony Carr had 20 points and Shep Garner added 15 to lead Penn State (2-2).
Jeter went down under the Penn State basket while going for a rebound. His injury came minutes after Grayson Allen left the game, favoring the right foot he hurt in the recent loss to Kansas.
Allen returned and finished with 12 points. He needs just three more to become the 65th Duke player with 1,000 points for his career.
Matt Jones and Luke Kennard added 15 points each for Duke.
