 DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Ryan Kelly scored a season-high 22 points in No. 1 Duke's 80-62 rout of Wake Forest on Saturday.
Seth Curry also had 22 points and Quinn Cook had a career-high 14 assists for the Blue Devils (14-0, 1-0), who 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.
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.

No. 18 MICHIGAN ST. 84, PURDUE 61
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Freshman Gary Harris scored a season-high 22 points and Michigan State used a 28-7 run in the second half to pull away.
The Spartans (12-3, 1-1 Big Ten) missed their first 10 shots from the field after halftime, but it didn't much matter in what quickly became a free throw contest. Michigan State finished 18 of 22 from the line, and the Boilermakers were 9 of 20 - including 6 of 16 in the second half.
Branden Dawson had 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Spartans, who bounced back from a loss at Minnesota in their conference opener.
A.J. Hammons scored 20 points for the Boilermakers (7-7, 1-1), who were coming off a win over No. 11 Illinois.

No. 21 NOTRE DAME 93, SETON HALL 74
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Scott Martin had a season-high 22 points on a career-high six 3-pointers and Jack Cooley added 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead Notre Dame to its 11th straight win.
The winning streak is the second-longest for the Irish (13-1, 1-0 Big East) in 13 seasons under coach Mike Brey. The loss ended a seven-game winning streak for Seton Hall (12-3, 1-1).
Seton Hall, playing with only eight scholarship players available because of injuries, kept the game close until the Irish finished the first half on a 7-2 spurt, then opened the second half with a 16-4 run to move ahead 60-41.
Fuquan Edwin and Aaron Cosby had 21 points each for the Pirates.

RUTGERS 67, No. 24 PITTSBURGH 62
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Eli Carter scored 23 points and Rutgers held off a second-half rally to hand Pittsburgh its second straight loss.
The victory was the first for Rutgers coach Mike Rice since returning from a three-game school-imposed suspension for inappropriate behavior earlier this week.
The Scarlet Knights (10-3, 1-1 Big East) led by 14 points at halftime only to see the Panthers (12-3, 0-2) twice close the gap to two points in the final 5 minutes, the last time at 55-53 with 3:24 to play.
Carter hit a 10-footer in the lane with 2:53 to go and Dane Miller added two free throws after two missed 3-pointers by Pitt to secure the game.
