The Duke Basketball team ran the Wake Forest Demon Deacons off the floor on Saturday night in Cameron Indoor Stadium to pick up win No. 900 in the historic venue.

Sporting new alternate uniforms, the Duke Blue Devils put on a show in front of home fans and students on Saturday night, sending the Wake Forest Demon Deacons packing, winning 90-59 and picking up win No. 900 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Duke led from start to finish as things got started with five straight points from point guard Tre Jones and that was only the beginning of his outstanding evening.

The sophomore capped off his night with 21 points, three rebounds, five assists, four steals, and a block on 10-of-15 shooting and making 2-of-3 from 3-point range.

It was Jones’ third 20-point game of his Duke career, all three coming this season.

Saturday night was just the second home game of ACC play for the Blue Devils, and both victories came by at least 29 points.

Cassius Stanley, Joey Baker, Jack White, and Jordan Goldwire were the other players for Duke to reach double figures as Stanley finished with 16 points and yet another highlight-reel dunk while Baker found his shooting form once again going 4-of-7 from the field for 11 points.

Mike Krzyzewski made another change to the starting lineup by putting Baker and Alex O’Connell on the bench and pairing Goldwire alongside Jones, Stanley, Matthew Hurt, and Vernon Carey Jr.

Goldwire dropped ten points and six assists on 4-of-6 shooting from the field and 1-of-2 from 3-point range.

O’Connell responded to his second game coming off the bench with just one point, but the junior took a hard fall on his back early in the first half, but after a brief time on the bench, O’Connell was able to return to action.

As a team, Duke shot 53.2 percent from the field and 47.8 percent from 3-point range as the freight train kept on rolling through Cameron Indoor Stadium.

The Blue Devils will now head to South Carolina to face the Clemson Tigers on Tuesday night, who just defeated the North Carolina Tar Heels in overtime on Saturday evening. Duke and Clemson will tipoff at 7:00pm EST on January 14.
