Duke Puts Away Pesky Cavaliers In ACC Tournament 57-46

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Kyle Singler had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and No. 4 Duke pulled away late to beat pesky Virginia 57-46 on Friday in an Atlantic Coast Conference quarterfinal.

Nolan Smith added 15 points for the top-seeded Blue Devils (27-5) and Jon Scheyer shook off a rough start to score 15 -- including seven during the late 11-0 run that sent them into Saturday's semifinal against the Miami-Virginia Tech winner.

Jeff Jones had 15 points and Mike Scott added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Cavaliers (15-16). They got as close as 46-44 in the final 7 minutes, but went scoreless for nearly 6 minutes and were denied their first semifinal berth since 1995.

Smith started the decisive run by sticking back Singler's miss with about 6 minutes left. Scheyer banked in a jumper and Singler added a putback to give the Blue Devils plenty of breathing room.
