GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Jon Scheyer and Duke weren't about to
let another one of college basketball's little guys scare them
again.

Scheyer scored 15 points to lead six players in double figures,
and the Blue Devils made Binghamton's first appearance in the NCAA
tournament a quick one by routing the Bearcats 86-62 Thursday night
in the first round of the East Regional.

Lance Thomas added 14 points and Gerald Henderson and Nolan
Smith added 13 apiece for the Blue Devils (29-6), the No. 2 seed.

They shot 49 percent, put the game away with a huge run to open the
second half and advanced to a second-round matchup with
seventh-seeded Texas on Saturday.

D.J. Rivera scored 20 points for Binghamton (23-9). The program
from upstate New York that jumped to Division I in 2001 and won the
America East tournament ultimately was no match for one of the
NCAA's most decorated programs.
