  • a close up of a baseball player holding a bat: PLAYER OF THE GAMEEvery time quarterback Case Keenum is featured in our Upon Further Review articles, it seems we’re always praising him for being just about perfect.He was again Sunday.In three quarters of play, Keenum threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns on 20-of-23 passing and proudly donned the “NFC North Champions” hat after the game — a cap he earned more than anybody on the team.He also played a big part in the coolest moment of the game in the fourth quarter. We’ll get to that in a bit. But it sealed his Player of the Game status, for sure.

    Can Vikings QB Keenum get it done in the playoffs?

Conference races heat up this week in the AP Top 25

  Conference races heat up this week in the AP Top 25 The last Saturday in 2017 took out the final three unbeaten teams. The first week in 2018 could be a big early step in determining races in three conferences. The first week in 2018 could be a big early step in determining races in three conferences.

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) A virus kept Mike Krzyzewski from coaching No . 7 Duke . Guard Gary Trent Jr. spent most of a timeout with his head over a bucket.

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Marvin Bagley III had 30 points and 11 rebounds, and No . 7 Duke beat Wake Forest 89 - 71 on Saturday in a game Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski missed due to a virus.

DURHAM, N.C. — Marvin Bagley III had 30 points and 11 rebounds, and No. 7 Duke beat Wake Forest 89-71 on Saturday in a game Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski missed due to a virus.

With longtime assistant Jeff Capel in charge, the short-handed and illness-ravaged Blue Devils (15-2, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) won their second straight and moved their conference record over .500 for the first time this season.

Gary Trent Jr. added 19 points and six 3-pointers, Wendell Carter Jr. had 15 points and 11 rebounds, Grayson Allen had a career-best 12 rebounds and reserve Alex O'Connell scored 13 points.

Bryant Crawford scored 21 points and Keyshawn Woods had 15 to lead Wake Forest (8-9, 1-4), which hasn't won at Cameron Indoor Stadium in 21 years.

BOX SCORE: DUKE 89, WAKE FOREST 71

BIG PICTURE

Wake Forest: Things aren't getting any easier for the Demon Deacons, who have lost five of six. Five of their next seven opponents appear in the national rankings, and it was asking a lot to expect the Demon Deacons to claim their first victory at Cameron since the Tim Duncan era in 1997. Crawford kept them in it early, scoring 14 points in the first half, but serious foul trouble by the bigs and the lack of an answer for Bagley — not exactly an uncommon problem around the ACC — ultimately did them in.

Duke: Playing without Coach K isn't exactly a new phenomenon for the Blue Devils — this is the third straight season in which the 70-year-old has missed at least one game due to health reasons — but now the issue becomes the length of his absence and the severity of his sickness, especially with Duke facing a quick turnaround with a game Monday night at No. 18 Miami. Duke hasn't won there since 2014.

Ex-Arizona QB claims basketball coach Sean Miller paid players

  Ex-Arizona QB claims basketball coach Sean Miller paid players The controversy surrounding the University of Arizona appears to be just getting started. Only a few days after the university fired head football coach Rich Rodriguez following reports that the school had launched an investigation into allegations of workplace misconduct, a former Wildcats quartback defended Rodriguez by downplaying the allegations and claiming that Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller has been paying players. Matt Scott, who played at Arizona from 2008-2012, criticized the university for what he perceived as a hypocritical decision to fire Rodriguez but keep Miller.
