DURHAM, N.C. -

Rodney Hood scored a career-high 30 points Tuesday night to help sixth-ranked Duke beat East Carolina 83-74 in the NIT Season Tipoff.
    
Freshman Jabari Parker had 21 points and nine rebounds for the Blue Devils (4-1), who survived a tougher-than-expected fight from the underdog Pirates to improve to 24-2 all-time in the early season tournament.
    
Duke led by a single point with about 7 minutes left but stayed in front and did enough in the final 2½ minutes to turn away East Carolina (4-1).
    
The Blue Devils advanced to next week's semifinals in New York's Madison Square Garden.
    
Prince Williams scored 15 for the Pirates, who shot 40 percent but helped themselves by hitting the offensive glass for a 16-3 edge in second-chance points.
