Durham, N.C. • Quinn Cook scored a career-high 27 points and No. 1 Duke held Clemson to its lowest-scoring half in 12 years in a 68-40 victory Tuesday night.

Ryan Kelly added 12 points in the first half but sat out the second with what team officials said was a right leg injury.

The Blue Devils (15-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) shot 48 percent, built a 42-31 rebounding advantage and pulled away down the stretch to improve to 58-4 at home against the Tigers.

Devin Booker had 12 points and 15 rebounds for Clemson (8-6, 0-2), which had season lows for points and shooting percentage (28 percent) and shot 12 percent in its brutal first half.

The Tigers had just 10 points at halftime.

Pittsburgh 73, No. 19 Georgetown 45 • At Washington, Talib Zanna scored 15 points, and Pittsburgh rediscovered its shooting touch, hitting 55 percent from the field. No player scored in double figures for the punchless Hoyas (10-3, 0-2), who shot 35 percent to lose by more than 20 points at home for the first time in 13 years. —
