DURHAM, N.C. – Quinn Cook had 24 points and nine assists to help No. 10 Duke beat 22nd-ranked Michigan 79-69 on Tuesday night in an ACC/Big Ten Challenge game.
Freshman Jabari Parker added 15 points as the Blue Devils (7-2) regrouped from last week’s loss to Arizona by grinding out a tough decision over the Wolverines (5-3).
Michigan missed 17 of its first 21 shots and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said his team played “an outstanding defensive game.”
Andre Dawkins came in midway through the second half and made two straight three-pointers to start Duke’s clinching run, helping the ACC Blue Devils to improve to 13-2 all time in the Challenge — by far the best record for a team in either conference — including 6-0 at famously hostile Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Caris LeVert matched his career high with 24 points for Michigan.
