Freshman AJ Griffin led the way with a career-high 27 points. Most of that work came before the break and in the early moments of the second half. He was 11-of-17 from the field and 3-of-6 from beyond the arc.
Paolo Banchero and Wendell Moore Jr. both scored 13 points. Banchero added a team-high 10 rebounds.
This win means Duke stays on top of the ACC standings with a 9-2 record. Notre Dame (9-3) and Wake Forest (9-4) are the next closest teams.
Duke is still trying to secure a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Blue Devils have now won five straight games since falling to Florida State in overtime on Jan. 18.
Krzyzewski finishes his career at 18-23 all-time in Chapel Hill.
