Dawkins Scores 24 To Lead No. 8 Duke To 73-66 Win

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Andre Dawkins scored 24 points and made five 3--pointers to help No. 8 Duke beat Clemson 73-66 Sunday night.

The Blue Devils (15-2, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) overcame a sluggish start to pull away from the Tigers (9-8, 1-2) even though scoring leader Austin Rivers finished with 4 points, more than 10 fewer than his average.

Duke had to overcome a late rally by Clemson, which cut a 13-point lead to 68-64 in the final minute on two 3-pointers by Andre Young. But Dawkins made three foul shots down the stretch as the Blue Devils beat Clemson for the 26th time in the last 28 meetings.

Milton Jennings had 16 points for the Tigers and Devin Booker added 12 points and 13 rebounds.

    This game was like watching a local high school game, what has happened to ACC basketball?
