Sulaimon Leads No. 6 Duke Past BC, 89-68

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Freshman Rasheed Sulaimon scored a season-high 27 points and No. 6 Duke routed Boston College 89-68 on Sunday.

Mason Plumlee added 19 points and 15 rebounds for the Blue Devils (24-3, 11-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). They shot nearly 54 percent -- 62 percent during the first half -- and outscored BC 48-17 during the 15 1/2 minute span that put this one out of reach by halftime.

Freshman Amile Jefferson added a season-high 14 points, Quinn Cook had 12 and Seth Curry finished with 11 for Duke, which had five double-figure scorers for the fifth time.

Ryan Anderson scored 23 points to lead the Eagles (12-15, 4-10). They had 16 turnovers, were held to one field goal during a 10-minute stretch that coincided with Duke's dominating early burst and lost their fourth in six games while dropping to 0-7 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
