NCAA Game Summary - Florida Gulf Coast at Duke



(Sunday, November 18th)

Final Score: (9) Duke 88, Florida Gulf Coast 67

Durham, NC (Sports Network) - Mason Plumlee had a career-high 28 points, Rasheed Sulaimon scored 19 and the ninth-ranked Duke Blue Devils posted an 88-67 victory over Florida Gulf Coast in the Battle 4 Atlantis.

Ryan Kelly contributed 14 points for Duke (3-0) and matched Plumlee with nine rebounds.

The Blue Devils set a school record by notching their 96th consecutive home win over a non-conference opponent.

Bernard Thompson totaled 24 points, six boards and five steals for the Eagles (2-2), who led for a large portion of the first half. Filip Cvjeticanin drained a 3-pointer to put Florida Gulf Coast up 30-29 with just under six minutes remaining.

It proved to be the last Eagles' basket until Thompson knocked down a trey two minutes into the second half.

Duke went on an epic 30-0 run to seize control. Up 52-30 at the break, the Blue Devils scored the first seven points of second half.

"Our defense was really good there in that time," said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski.

Kelly sank a 3-pointer, Sulaimon hit a jumper and Plumlee made two free throws before Thompson snapped the visitor's lengthy drought.

"I've never heard of a 30 to nothing run before. First one I've been a part of," said Eagles coach Andy Enfield. "But the good news is, other than that, we played pretty well. I'm proud of our guys. We outscored them in the second half by one."
