No. 5 Duke Beats BC 75-50 Behind Curry's 18 Points

BOSTON (AP) -- Seth Curry scored 18 points and No. 5 Duke didn't need another late rally as it cruised to a 75-50 win over Boston College behind a smothering defense on Sunday night.

The Blue Devils had erased a 20-point deficit in the final 11 1/2 minutes to beat North Carolina State 78-73 on Thursday night. Eight days earlier, they had come back from 10 points down with 2 1/2 minutes left to beat North Carolina 85-84.

But against BC, Duke went ahead for good on a layup by Austin Rivers midway through the first half, 15-13, led 30-21 at intermission and stretched that to 28 points midway through the second half.

Duke (23-4, 10-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) pulled into a tie for the conference lead with North Carolina and Florida State.
