No. 6 Duke vs. Boston College: Blue Devils rout Eagles, 89-68

Streeter Lecka

Duke scored 51 first-half points on Sunday on its way to a rout over Boston College, representing a much different result than the first meeting between the two teams earlier this month.

Rasheed Sulaimon scored 27 points to lead the No. 6 Duke Blue Devils to an 89-68 rout of the Boston College Eagles on Sunday afternoon at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C.

The last time the Blue Devils faced the Eagles, Boston College spent the majority of the game flirting with the possibility of an upset victory. Duke escaped that Feb. 10 meeting with a one-point victory, a much different story than on Sunday, when the Blue Devils jumped out to a 24-point halftime lead, thanks in part to Sulaimon's 15 first-half points.

Mason Plumlee scored 19 points, on the strength of an 11-of-15 performance from the free throw line, and grabbed 15 rebounds for the Blue Devils (24-3, 11-3 ACC), who had five players finish in double-digits in scoring. Plumlee's squad will travel to Virginia on Thursday before a showdown with No. 2 Miami on Saturday.

Ryan Anderson finished with 23 points for Boston College (12-15, 4-10 ACC).
