DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Freshman Rasheed Sulaimon scored a season-high 25 points and No. 1 Duke bounced back from one of its worst losses under Mike Krzyzewski by routing Maryland 84-64 on Saturday.

Mason Plumlee added 19 points and Seth Curry had 13 for the Blue Devils (17-2, 4-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).

They had just four turnovers while shooting 52 percent against a Maryland defense that hadn't allowed any team to shoot better than 44 percent.

Plumlee finished 9 of 12 while Sulaimon was 9 of 13 with six 3-pointers — twice as many as his previous high, and four in a 3-minute span of the first half.

Dez Wells and Charles Mitchell both had 13 points for the Terrapins (15-5, 3-4).
