Recap


No. 1 Duke 68, Clemson 40: Quinn Cook rebounded from a scoreless outing to record a career-high 27 points as the host Blue Devils breezed past the Tigers to improve to 15-0 for the second time in three seasons.

Cook shot 12-for-16 from the field and Ryan Kelly scored 12 points in the first half before exiting with an injured right leg. Mason Plumlee had eight points and 13 rebounds for top-ranked Duke (15-0, 2-0 ACC), which has won 27 of the last 29 contests versus Clemson (8-6, 0-2) - including 15 consecutive at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

After missing their first nine shots, the Blue Devils finally got their offense in gear. Kelly drilled a pair of 3-pointers and scored 10 points during a 20-4 run as Duke seized a 25-10 lead at intermission.

The Blue Devils committed four turnovers on as many possessions to help the Tigers close within 34-22, but Tyler Thornton and Seth Curry quickly buried 3-pointers to end any threat of a comeback.

Devin Booker collected 12 points and 15 rebounds for Clemson, which shot an abysmal 3-for-25 (12 percent) from the field in the first half. Milton Jennings made the Tigers' first 3-pointer with 2 1/2 minutes remaining.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Clemson's 10 points at intermission were the fewest Duke allowed in a half against an ACC team since holding North Carolina scoreless on Feb. 24, 1979. ... Curry moved past the 1,000-point plateau in his career after sinking a 3-pointer just over two minutes into the second half. ... Cook's previous career high was 17 versus Minnesota earlier this season.
