Behind 24 points and 11 rebounds from Kyle Singler, No. 2 Duke shook off a post-UNC-victory-hangover to beat Boston College 90-80, extending their winning streak to 11 games.

DeMarcus Nelson added 23 points for the Blue Devils (21-1, 9-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who turned 21 BC turnovers into 21 points and overcame a huge game from Tyrese Rice with a late 17-2 run.

Rice, the ACC's second-leading scorer, scored 18 of his 28 points in the first half for the Eagles (12-10, 3-6), the second straight game usually stingy Duke has allowed a 28-point scorer.
