    Updated: 20 hr ago

    DURHAM, N.C. — The second half was a mere formality in Duke’s 94-51 beatdown of Wake Forest — the competitive portion of the game was over well before halftime.

Tyus made the free throw with to complete the four-point play, giving the Blue Devils an insurmountable 52-15 lead after 20 minutes. It was as ugly as it appeared for the Demon Deacons (13-17, 5-12 ACC), as they had more turnovers (16) than points in the first 20 minutes. Grayson Allen, the last man on Duke’s bench, scored more points (a career-high 19) than all the Wake Forest players
