underway around the world and in the
United States.

In New York City's Times Square,
some one million people are expected to
pack the

streets for the *101st New Year's Eve*

Security is tight for the event.

Police are telling revelers not
to bring backpacks, large bags or
alcohol to Times Square. And
authorities say those who leave the
barricaded area before the ball drops
won't be allowed back to their original
spot.

This one was all Duke - and more

the floor, 6-of-11 from behind the arc
and a perfect 9-of-9 from the free
throw line to lead the Blue Devils with
35 points.

Albuquerque vs. Roanoke The Dazzle offered fans free :00 tickets with the help of Grand Home
Furnishings - and 35 hundred and 87
fans took advantage of it and took in
the game.

Roanoke would get the party
started with Malik Moore finding Nate
Daniels, who in turn goes baseline for
the hoop. Roanoke trailed by 10 after
the first quarter.

In the second Kevin Owens will
battle inside a tough two pointer - he
wanted the foul - but as usual he gets
no love from the refs.

The Thunderbirds - would counter

- with former Hokie Bryant Matthews
wearing number 6. He knocks in the
jumper and beats the shot clock. *CG final Albuquerque
109 More Dazzle as Daniels finds Seth Roanoke Doliboa who finds the bottom of the 105 bucket, but again in front of a huge
crowd Roanoke can't get the win as
Albuquerque wins it 109 to 105.
