CAN YOU SAY MISMATCH?

DUKE 86, ST. JOHN'S 56

Twenty years ago, this would have been a good game. Yesterday, it was a stinker.

Kyle Singler led five double-figure scorers with 16 points and #4 Duke routed St. John's 86-56 on Saturday to snap its two-game losing streak.

Gerald Henderson and Nolan Smith scored 13 points apiece for the Blue Devils (23-3), who overwhelmed the Red Storm with a 32-9 run late in the first half and cruised to their NCAA-leading 59th straight nonconference victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Jon Scheyer added 12 points in his first start of the season and center Brian Zoubek had 11 points and a career-high 13 rebounds for Duke, which showed none of the ballhandling or defensive problems that plagued coach Mike Krzyzg4wski's team in losses at Wake and Miami.
