No. 4 Duke routs Wake Forest

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Ryan Kelly likes to say he thinks he can make every shot he takes. Once again, he was right.

Kelly scored a career-high 20 points, hitting all six shots he tried in No. 4 Duke's 83-59 rout of Wake Forest on Saturday.

"It's not going to be every game where I go 6 for 6 ... but I'm confident in my shot," Kelly said. "Every day, come to work, be hungry and good things will happen."

Kyle Singler scored 24 points and keyed one of the big runs down the stretch, while Nolan Smith shook off a slow start and finished with 19 on 6-of-22 shooting for the Blue Devils (18-1, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).

The league's highest-ranked team took care of its worst down the stretch, using two big runs to outscore Wake Forest 42-27 in the second half. Duke won its fourth straight and claimed its second victory of the week on an instate rival's home floor.

"Road wins in this league, if you look it up, man, they're hard to come by," coach Mike Krzyzewski said.

No. 10 Texas 74,No. 2 Kansas 63

At Lawrence, Kan., J'Covan Brown scored 23 points and keyed a second-half run that erased a 15-point deficit and led Texas past Kansas, snapping the Jayhawks' 69-game home winning streak.

Kansas scored the game's first 10 points and led by as many as 15 in the early going. But Texas (16-3, 4-0 Big 12) outscored the Jayhawks 36-13 while turning a 12-point halftime deficit into a 59-48 lead on a 3-pointer by Cory Joseph.

The Jayhawks (18-1, 3-1) had not lost at home since Feb. 3, 2007, the longest current streak in the nation, and were 7-0 at home against Texas since the inception of the Big 12 in 1996.
