Duke 97, Florida Atlantic 64

Team Notes:

•    Duke had a 20-point scorer for the third straight game this season and two 20-point scorers for the second time. Freshman Jabari Parker (21 points) and redshirt sophomore Rodney Hood (28 points) reached that plateau together for the second time this season. Those two have five of Duke’s seven 20-point games this season.

•    Duke shot 12-of-23 (.522) from three-point range for the team’s highest three-point shooting percentage (minimum 10 attempts) since Duke hit 12-of-23 three-pointers against Virginia Tech on March 5, 2013. A team-high five of those three-pointers tonight came from graduate student Andre Dawkins, who finished 5-of-8 from three-point range.

•    Duke used the starting lineup of Hood, Parker, Quinn Cook, Amile Jefferson and Rasheed Sulaimon. The start was the first of the season for Sulaimon, who started 33 of 36 games as a freshman in 2012-13.

•    Duke won its 18th consecutive home game. The Blue Devils went 16-0 in Cameron Indoor Stadium during the 2012-13 season and are 2-0 at home this season.

•    Duke scored 52 points in the first half, marking the third time in six halves this season that the Blue Devils have topped the 50-point plateau. Duke has scored at least 40 points in every half this season.

•    Duke used a season-high 12 players in the game, including every scholarship player.

•    Head coach Mike Krzyzewski improved to 959-298 (.763) overall and 886-239 (.788) at Duke. Krzyzewski is the all-time NCAA Division I leader in wins and ranks second in wins at one school behind Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim.

•    Duke won its 802nd game at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Blue Devils are 802-153 (.840) all-time in Cameron Indoor Stadium and 444-58 (.885) under head Coach K.

•    Duke played its 215th straight game as a top-10 team. The Blue Devils are 178-36 (.831) in those games.

•    Duke sold out Cameron Indoor Stadium for the 357th consecutive game. The last time Duke did not have a sellout crowd at home was Nov. 16, 1990 against Boston College.

Player Notes:

Quinn Cook

•    Made his 37th consecutive start, the longest active streak on the team.

•    Dished out eight assists for the second time this season, raising his assist average to 6.7 per game. Cook committed three turnovers in 30 minutes, bringing his season assist-to-turnover ratio to 5.0:1 (20:4).

•    Contributed assists that led to 40 points, including eight of Duke’s 12 three-pointers.

•    Matched a career high with eight rebounds, equaling the eight he pulled down against Elon on Dec. 20, 2012.

Andre Dawkins

•    Sank 5-of-8 three-point attempts and finished with 17 points in 19 minutes of action. The double-figure scoring effort was his first since Feb. 23, 2012 when he scored 22 in a loss at Florida State.

•    Hit his first field goal since March 16, 2012, a three-pointer at the 13:20 mark in the first half. The basket came on Dawkins’ first field goal attempt of the season.

•    Put together his sixth career game with at least five made three-pointers and his first since hitting three at Florida State on Feb. 23, 2012.

Rodney Hood

•    Scored a career-high 28 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the field and 12-of-13 from the free throw line. The 28 points were the most by a Duke player this season and the most by a Duke player who did not hit a three-pointer since Mason Plumlee scored 28 on Feb. 7, 2012 against N.C. State.

•    Hit 12-of-13 (.923) free throws for Duke’s highest free throw percentage (minimum 10 attempts) since Ryan Kelly was a perfect 14-of-14 against Georgia Tech on Jan. 7, 2012.

Amile Jefferson

•    Continued his efficient offensive production with eight points in 14 minutes on 3-of-6 shooting. Jefferson shot at least 50.0 percent from the field for the third straight game and leads Duke with a .737 (14-of-19) shooting percentage.

Semi Ojeleye

•    Scored his first career points as a Blue Devil on a layup with 56 seconds remaining in the game. The basket came on an assist from Rasheed Sulaimon.

Jabari Parker

•    Became the first Duke freshman to start his career with three straight 20-point games and the eighth Duke player to start a season with three consecutive 20-point games. Parker’s three straight 20-point games to start a season ranks tied for third all-time at Duke alongside five others and trailing only Art Heyman (10 in 1961-62) and Ronnie Mayer (4 in 1955-56). Parker is only the second player in the Coach K era to start a season with three straight 20-point games, joining Johnny Dawkins (3 in 1983-84).

•    Hit 7-of-13 shots from the field and 4-of-6 from three-point range, giving him a field goal percentage of at least .500 and a three-point percentage of at least .571 in every game this season. Parker is shooting 24-of-41 (.585) from the field and 11-of-16 (.688) from three-point range this season.

•    Recorded his first career double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Also chipped in a block for the third straight game, a career-high three assists and two steals.

•    Now leads Duke in points (70), rebounds (25), steals (4), blocks (3), made field goals (24), field goal attempts (41), made three-point field goals (11) and three-point field goal attempts (16) through Duke’s first three games.
