Top ranked Duke Blue Devils moved to 15-0 as they worked their way past the Clemson Tigers by the score of 68-40. The Tigers are now 8-6 and 0-2 in the ACC.

Devin Booker did his best to keep Clemson close as both teams struggled in the first half. At the break it was 25-10 in favor of Duke, but once the Blue Devils’ shooting rhythm returned they pulled away from Clemson.

Quinn Cook had a career high 27 points to go with five assists, five rebounds and four steals. His marvelous game was overshadowed somewhat as Ryan Kelly didn’t play in the second half due to a foot injury.

In the end, Duke goes into NC State on Saturday feeling good about Cook's play but concerned about Kelly's injury.
