The Duke Basketball team put forth yet another blowout victory on Saturday night in ACC play and the Blue Devils sophomore point guard led the way in the victory.

It was business as usual for the Duke Blue Devils on Saturday night as Duke rolled Wake Forest to pick up its fifth ACC win of the season and improved to 15-1.

Duke went wire to wire against Wake Forest and the Demon Deacons never threatened the Blue Devils as the game ended with a 90-59 victory.

The Blue Devils picked up win No. 900 in Cameron Indoor Stadium and Duke relied on sophomore point guard Tre Jones to lead the way, one game after the Minnesota native helped the Blue Devils climb out of a small hole on the road against Georgia Tech.

Against Wake Forest, Duke was without Wendell Moore for the second straight game as he sat on the bench with a cast on his hand after undergoing surgery on a broken bone in his hand that he suffered on January 4 in a win over Miami.

Duke saw five players reach at least 11 points in the win and as a team, the Blue Devils shot 53.2 percent from the field and 47.8 percent from 3-point range while recording 20 assists on 33 made field goals.

The Blue Devils defense forced 17 turnovers and out-rebounded Wake Forest by nine.

Every member of the Duke basketball team that stepped on the floor scored, with the exception of Justin Robinson and Mike Buckmire, who played four and two minutes, respectively.

Duke will continue to look for contributions up and down the roster as conference play rolls on and the games become more important and the competition heightens.
