Rodney Hood and Rasheed Sulaimon added 11 points each for the Blue Devils (20-5, 9-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). They started a run of four games in eight nights by giving the Terrapins a hard-to-swallow loss in their last scheduled visit to Cameron Indoor Stadium.

The ACC’s top 3-point shooting team was just 5 of 24 from long range and shot 23 percent in the second half but found a way to reach the 20-win mark for the 18th straight year.

Jake Layman scored 18 points for Maryland (14-12, 6-7) and Dez Wells had all 17 of his points in the second half.

Charles Mitchell finished with 12 for the Terrapins, but missed two hook shots in the final 10 seconds that would have given them the lead.

Parker gave Duke the lead for good when his one-handed dunk over Jonathan Graham made it 68-67 with about 1:15 remaining.

No. 3 Florida 69, No. 14 Kentucky 58 • In Lexington, Ky., Scottie Wilbekin scored 23 points including five critical free throws down the stretch as Florida rallied for a tense victory over Kentucky on Saturday in a marquee showdown of the Southeastern Conference’s top two teams.

The Gators tied a school record with their 17th straight win, and their first at Rupp Arena since 2007.

Trailing 45-38 with 11:12 remaining, the veteran Gators (23-2, 2-0) didn’t flinch and outscored the young Wildcats (19-6, 9-3) 31-14 after that.
