DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Freshman Jabari Parker scored 21 points to help No. 8 Duke beat Gardner-Webb 85-66 on Monday night.

Andre Dawkins added a season-high 18 points for the Blue Devils (8-2), who were playing their first game in nearly two weeks. Duke's offense came out strong and shot 50 percent with nine 3-pointers, maintaining a double-digit lead for most of the game even though they didn't do a lot to slow the Runnin' Bulldogs' own hot shooting.

Duke led by 14 points at halftime and by 23 in the second half on the way to earning its 108th straight home nonconference victory.

Jerome Hill scored a career-high 22 points to go with nine rebounds to lead Gardner-Webb (6-6), which shot nearly 63 percent in the opening half before cooling off and finishing at 54 percent for the game.
