Kelly again leads No. 1 Duke to 80-62 rout of Wake
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Ryan Kelly had another big day against Wake Forest, scoring a season-high 22 points in No. 1 Duke's 80-62 rout of the Demon Deacons on Saturday.
Seth Curry also had 22 points, Quinn Cook had a career-high 14 assists and Kelly finished with his fourth straight 20-point performance against Wake Forest.
The Blue Devils (14-0, 1-0) shot 46 percent in their Atlantic Coast Conference opener and hit 11 3-pointers — including six during the 25-7 first-half run that put them up big.
They pushed their lead well into the 20s with a Curry-led 18-6 run out of the break in which they scored on nine of their first 10 possessions of the half.
Travis McKie had 22 points and 11 rebounds for Wake Forest (7-6, 0-1), which had nearly as many turnovers (19) as field goals (23) and had its three-game winning streak snapped.
