Sunday Night ACC Basketball


DUKE 71, MARYLAND 64 – Kyle  Singler had 25 points and a season-high 10 rebounds, and No. 1 Duke beat Maryland on Sunday night to extend its winning streak to 25.


Nolan Smith added 18 points on 5-of-18 shooting for the Blue Devils (15-0, 2-0 ACC). They overcame 17 turnovers and shot 40 percent to extend their best start since 2005-06.


Jordan Williams had 23 points and 13 rebounds for his ninth straight double-double, and Cliff Tucker added 14 points for the Terrapins (10-5, 0-2). They were the last team to defeat Duke, but they were denied their 11th win against a No. 1 team in school history.


Maryland closed to 67-62 on Williams' layup with 1:25 left, but Singler responded with a 3-pointer with 53 seconds left and the Terps couldn't get closer than six after that.
