The Duke Blue Devils (24-3, 11-3 ACC) used a 21-4 first half run to pull away from conference foe Boston College and win  89-66 on Sunday afternoon in Durham.

Duke was led by freshman sensation Rasheed Sulaimon who had a career 27 high points. Senior forward Mason Plumlee contributed his 16th double-double of the season and dropped 19 points and 15 rebounds.

The Boston College Eagles (12-15, 4-10 ACC) lost their ninth game in their last 12 and were led by sophomore forward Ryan Anderson with 23 points.

The game was over by halftime and leaves Duke with just one obstacle, Virginia, standing between them and a huge matchup with No. 2 Miami next Saturday in Durham.
