Sulaimon didn't miss a shot from beyond the arc until the 12:16 mark in the second half. He ended up making 9-of-13 field goal attempts, including 6-of-8 from three-point range.
Although the Blue Devils held the lead for most of the game, they didn't really begin to take control until four minutes into the second half, when Quinn Cook's layup and Seth Curry's three-pointer gave Duke a 12-point lead. From there, Duke extended its lead to as many as 20 points while Maryland struggled to make shots, particularly from the free throw line and beyond the three-point arc.
Mason Plumlee pitched in 19 points and seven rebounds for the Blue Devils (17-2), while all three of Duke's other starters finished in double figures, as well.
Dez Wells and Charles Mitchell finished with 13 points apiece for the Terrapins (15-5).
