WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Grayson Allen scored 24 points and No. 14 Duke pulled away to beat Wake Forest in a college basketball game at Lawrence Joel Coliseum in Winston-salem on Wednesday night.

The Blue Devils (13-2, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) only led by three-points at halftime, but outscored the Demon Deacons 41-28 in the second to ease to victory.

Allen shot 7 of 10 from the field and hit three 3-pointers, while freshman Luke Kennard added 23 points on 7 of 11 shooting and Marshall Plume ended with a career-high 18 points to go along with seven boards and two block shots for Duke, which won four games in a row.

Brandon Ingram had 17 points to improved to eight-straight games scoring in double digits, and he also had five rebounds, four blocks, three assists and three steals for the Blue Devils, who shot 51.7 percent and was opening their college basketball league play with consecutive road wins for the second time under coach Mike Krzyzewski.
