Parker, No. 11 Duke rout Wake Forest, 83-63

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Jabari Parker scored 21 points and No. 11 Duke beat Wake Forest 83-63 on Tuesday night.

Rasheed Sulaimon added 19 points for the Blue Devils (18-5, 7-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).

They shot nearly 51 percent, hit 12 3-pointers against one of the ACC’s best perimeter defenses and used a big run at the end of the first half to roll to their eighth straight victory over their instate rivals.

Devin Thomas had 14 points before fouling out for the Demon Deacons (14-9, 4-6), who have lost three straight for the first time this season.

They had 19 turnovers — including five straight during Duke’s decisive run.

Playing without leading scorer Codi Miller-McIntyre, Wake Forest hung around for about 15 minutes before ultimately losing their 15th straight at Cameron Indoor Stadium — all by double figures.
