No. 9 Duke Rolls Past Eastern Michigan, 82-59

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Jabari Parker scored 23 points and No. 9 Duke beat Eastern Michigan 82-59 on Saturday.

Andre Dawkins added 20 points with a season-high six 3-pointers as a late replacement for an ill Rodney Hood in the starting lineup.

Rasheed Sulaimon added 13 points and came up with the key hustle play during the decisive second-half run that helped the Blue Devils (10-2) polish off their fourth straight win.

They shot 40 percent against Eastern Michigan's tough matchup zone defense with 10 3-pointers, built a 47-32 advantage on the boards and wrapped up the pre-ACC home schedule with their 101st straight nonconference win at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Mike Talley scored 20 points to lead the Eagles (7-4). They went 6 minutes between field goals during the critical stretch when Duke pulled away.
