Devils Pound Wolverines To Stay Perfect On The Season

Taylor King scored 18 points, fellow freshman Nolan Smith added a career-high 17 and No. 6 Duke routed Michigan 95-67 on Saturday.

Gerald Henderson had 12 points and DeMarcus Nelson and Jon Scheyer added 10 apiece for the Blue Devils (9-0), who shot 49 percent and built an insurmountable lead by reeling off 14 straight first-half points.

Duke opened with nine straight victories for the third time in four years, won its NCAA-best 56th straight nonconference home game and improved to 3-0 against the Big Ten by sending the shorthanded Wolverines (3-6) to their sixth loss in seven games.
