Sports Minute: Here is the latest North and South Carolina sports news from The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Stephen Curry would love to be an NBA All-Star Game captain again next year, especially since the game will be in his hometown of Charlotte. LeBron James would be OK with someone else taking his place, depending on who the top two vote-getters are, although his draft prowess led to Team LeBron beating Team Stephen 148-145 Sunday night.

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Gary Trent Jr. hit three foul shots with 1:31 left to put No. 12 Duke ahead for good in a 66-57 win at No. 11 Clemson. The Blue Devils led by 10 points with seven minutes left, but the Tigers tied it up on David Skara's basket with two minutes to go. But Trent got fouled on a 3-point try next time down and hit all three of the free throws as Duke won its third straight without injured star Marvin Bagley III.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Taylor Hall scored on a rebound with 22 seconds left in overtime, giving the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. The goal extended Hall's league-best streak of games with a point to 18. New Jersey had won the first of the teams' four meetings this season on Thursday night to start the Hurricanes' three-game losing streak. Keith Kinkaid stopped 40 shots for the Devils.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Jalen Adams scored 26 points and Connecticut held on to beat East Carolina 84-80 despite giving up a triple-double to the Pirates' Isaac Fleming. Terry Larrier added 20 points and Christian Vital finished with 16 points to help the Huskies snap a two-game losing streak. Fleming had 13 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the second triple-double in ECU history.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A'ja Wilson scored 29 points and No. 8 South Carolina had assists on 21 of 26 baskets in an 81-63 victory over Kentucky. Wilson shot 9 of 16 from the field, made 11 of 12 free throws and had nine rebounds and five assists in just 26 minutes

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Asia Durr scored 19 points to help No. 4 Louisville rally past North Carolina 67-57. Arica Carter added 14 points for the Cardinals, who finished 8-0 on the road in conference play for the second time in four years. Durr made two 3-pointers as part of a 9-0 spurt to give the Cardinals a 51-45 lead early in the fourth quarter. She left the game with an injury with 8:21 to play and did not return.
