The Blue Devils were led by their starting lineup in this game. All five starters scored in double figures, with Paolo Banchero leading the way at 17 points.
Wendell Moore Jr. also scored 16 points and dished out 7 assists. Trevor Keels poured in 13 points and added 8 assists.
As a team, Duke shot the ball extremely well. The Blue Devils made 51.6 percent of their field goal attempts and 39.3 percent of their 3-point tries. They also made 13-of-17 free throws.
Duke is now a heavy favorite to win the ACC outright. The Blue Devils have four games remaining — Virginia, Syracuse, Pitt and North Carolina. Of those four, only the Tar Heels are in the mix to earn an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament.
