Singler Leads No. 10 Duke Past No. 21 Ga. Tech, 86-67

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Kyle Singler had career highs of 30 points and eight 3-pointers to lead No. 10 Duke past No. 21 Georgia Tech 86-67 on Thursday night.

Jon Scheyer added 21 points for the Blue Devils (18-4, 6-2), who were strong inside and outside -- hitting nearly 67 percent of their 3s and dominating Georgia Tech's foul-plagued front line.

Duke held a 40-32 rebounding edge and remained atop the Atlantic Coast Conference by claiming an easy win in a matchup of the league's only two ranked teams.

Zachery Peacock scored the Yellow Jackets' first 11 points, but didn't score after that. Leading scorers Gani Lawal and Derrick Favors were in foul trouble for Georgia Tech (16-6, 4-4).

Nolan Smith had 14 points for Duke, which led by double figures for the entire second half in bouncing back from a loss at Georgetown and avenging last month's 71-67 loss to Tech.
