Plumlees Help No. 10 Duke Top Terps, 73-55

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Miles Plumlee had 13 points and a career-high 22 rebounds, and No. 10 Duke pulled away to beat Maryland 73-55 on Saturday.

Seth Curry scored 19 points and Mason Plumlee added 16 points and 10 rebounds while big brother Miles became the first Duke player with 20 rebounds since Elton Brand in 1998.

The Blue Devils (21-4, 8-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) followed up their last-second victory over rival North Carolina with their fifth straight victory in the series. They built a 48-33 rebounding advantage but struggled to separate themselves on the scoreboard until they closed the game with a 13-2 run.

Nick Faust scored 15 points but Terrell Stoglin, the ACC's leading scorer, finished with 13 -- nine below his average -- on 4-of-16 shooting for the Terps (14-10, 4-6).

    As usual WITN chose not to mention Duke's win over UNC but only talk about ECU's loss to WVA. I wounder how far the Tarheels will drop in the poles,I bet not to 10 place.
