Durham - Freshman Taylor King scored a career-high 27 points to lead No. 13 Duke to a 78-43 rout of Eastern Kentucky on Sunday.

DeMarcus Nelson had 12 points and Gerald Henderson added 10 for the Blue Devils (6-0), who played their first game on the mainland since winning the Maui Invitational and showed no effects of jet lag.
