BOSTON (AP) — Jabari Parker set career highs with 29 points and 16 rebounds, Quinn Cook hit five 3-pointers and scored 21 points, and No. 11 Duke coasted to an 89-68 win over Boston College on Saturday night.

Rasheed Sulaimon added 10 points for the Blue Devils (19-5, 8-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Parker extended his Duke freshman record to 14 games with 20 points or more.

Olivier Hanlan led Boston College (6-17, 2-8) with 25 points and Ryan Anderson had 12.

The Eagles have dropped 10 of 12, with their only conference wins coming against last-place Virginia Tech.

The Blue Devils put it away with an 18-0 run midway through the second half, improving to 18-2 against unranked teams this season.

After a solid first half, Parker scored 12 of Duke’s initial 17 points after halftime as the Blue Devils opened a 56-44 lead on his three-point play with just under 14 minutes to go.
