Wendell Moore Jr. also had an efficient day. He scored 14 points and made 4-of-5 attempts from 3-point range. Trevor Keels also scored 13 points off the bench as he continues to recover from a lower leg injury.
The Blue Devils remain tied with Notre Dame for first place in the ACC with an 11-3 record. Duke has the head-to-head advantage over the Irish thanks to a 57-43 win in South Bend on Jan. 31.
Duke is expected to win its remaining six regular season games, according to KenPom projections. The Blue Devils are still in the hunt for an ACC regular season title and a No. 1 seed, and six more wins would certainly help in that regard.
Duke faces Wake Forest at home on Tuesday.
