WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) – Grayson Allen scored 24 points and No. 14 Duke pulled away to beat Wake Forest 91-75 on Wednesday night.

Freshman Luke Kennard added 23 points, Marshall Plumlee finished with a career-high 18, and Brandon Ingram had 17 for the Blue Devils (13-2, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).

They shot 52 percent and overcame some serious foul trouble to their thin seven-man rotation to win their fourth straight and open an ACC season with consecutive road victories for just the second time under coach Mike Krzyzewski.

Devin Thomas had 21 points and 12 rebounds, while Codi Miller-McIntyre had a season-best 20 points for the Demon Deacons (9-5, 0-2). They’ve lost three of four, also falling to No. 10 Xavier and No. 16 Louisville.
