Duke 91, Vermont 90

Team Notes:
•    Rodney Hood and Jabari Parker both reached 20 points for the fourth time this season and second straight game. The duo finished with a combined 48 points. Those two have combined for at least 38 points in every game this season and average 44.8 points per game, or 48.3 percent of Duke’s total scoring.
•    Jabari Parker scored 19 second-half points, including 13-of-15 Duke points during a stretch of 7:30 in the second half. Rodney Hood scored 15 points in the first half.
•    Duke trailed in Cameron Indoor Stadium for only the second time this season. Davidson hit a three-pointer to start the season opener on Nov. 8 and held that advantage for the first 1:20, but never regained a lead.
•    The 90 points allowed were the most in Cameron Indoor Stadium since Duke defeated Wake Forest 101-91 on Feb. 22, 2009. That was also the date of Duke’s last win when allowing at least 90 points.
•    Duke won its 21st consecutive home game. The Blue Devils went 16-0 in Cameron Indoor Stadium during the 2012-13 season and are 5-0 at home this season.
•    Duke won its 106th consecutive non-conference home game, the longest active streak in the nation.
•    Duke won its 805th game at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Blue Devils are 805-153 (.840) all-time in Cameron Indoor Stadium and 447-58 (.885) under head Coach K.
•    Duke used the starting lineup of Quinn Cook, Rodney Hood, Amile Jefferson, Jabari Parker and Rasheed Sulaimon for the fourth straight game. Cook, Hood, Jefferson and Parker have started every game this season.
•    Vermont set season highs again for a Duke opponent in field goal percentage (.648), made field goals (35) and assists (21).
•    Vermont’s .648 field goal percentage was the highest Duke has allowed since a .717 (33-of-46) clip in an 89-77 loss at No. 7 Georgetown on Jan. 30, 2010. It is the highest opponent field goal percentage in Cameron Indoor Stadium since Virginia posted a .690 (40-of-58) clip on Jan. 15, 2003.
•    Vermont forward Hector Harold scored 24 points to match Davidson’s De’Mon Brooks and Kansas’ Perry Ellis for the most points scored against Duke this season.
•    Duke scored 51 points in the first half, marking the fourth time this season Duke has scored at least 50 points in a half.
•    Duke reached 40 points in both halves, giving the Blue Devils at least 40 points in all 12 halves this season.
•    Head coach Mike Krzyzewski improved to 962-298 (.764) overall and 889-239 (.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 played its 218th straight game as a top-10 team. The Blue Devils are 181-37 (.830) in those games.
•    Duke shot a season-high .833 (25-of-30) from the free throw line, including 14-of-16 in the second half.

Player Notes:

Quinn Cook
•    Made his 40th consecutive start, the longest active streak on the team.
•    Scored in double figures for the third straight game and fifth time this season, finishing with 14 points on 4-of-8 shooting from the field and 2-of-6 shooting from three-point range. Cook hit all four free throws.
•    Dished out at least eight assists for the fourth time this season while committing just one turnover. Cook has 43 assists and just eight turnovers (5.4:1 assist-to-turnover ratio) this season while committing one or zero turnovers four times.

Andre Dawkins
•    Scored in double figures for the third time in his past four games, posting 16 points on four field goals.
•    Hit multiple three-pointers for the third time in his past four games and finished shooting 3-of-9 from beyond the three-point line. Dawkins has hit at least three treys in three of his past four games and is shooting .458 (11-of-24) from beyond the arc this season.

Rodney Hood
•    Sank the game-winning free throw with 5.0 seconds left.
•    Posted his fourth 20-point game of the season and second straight, finishing with 22 points on 6-of-3 shooting.
•    Hit 6-of-13 (.462) field goals, failing to shoot over .700 for the first time in his past four games. Hood had shot .727 (8-of-11), .750 (6-of-8) and .800 (8-of-10) in his previous three outings. He leads the ACC with a .688 shooting percentage.

Jabari Parker
•    Became the second player in Duke history to open a season with six consecutive 20-point games. The only other Blue Devil to accomplish that feat was Art Heyman, who had 10 straight 20-point games to open the 1961-62 season.
•    Parker is the first Division I freshman since Eric Gordon (Indiana, 2007-08) to score 20 points in each of his first six games.
•    Scored 19 second-half points, including 13 of Duke’s 15 points from 10:50 to 3:11 in the final frame. The scoring outburst kept Duke in the game as Vermont scored 17 points during that stretch.

•    Recorded a block and a steal for the fifth straight game.
