    Seth Curry scored 20 points, Mason Plumlee added 18 and No. 1 Duke reeled off 23 straight points in an 88-47 rout of Cornell Wednesday night in Durham, N.C.

    Freshman Rasheed Sulaimon had 16 points and Quinn Cook had a career-high 12 assists while showing up all over the box score for the Blue Devils (10-0).

    Playing as a top-ranked team for the 210th time under Mike Krzyzewski — but the first since February 2011 — they posted two key season highs, shooting 56.7 percent and forcing 26 turnovers, while holding the Big Red scoreless for an eight-minute stretch.


    Shonn Miller had 14 points to lead Cornell (4-7). The Big Red missed their first 10 shots of the second half and shot 22.6 percent over the final 20 minutes to lose their third in four games and fall to 0-4 all time against No. 1 teams.
