ATLANTA (AP) -- Duke picked the right opponent to have a miserable night shooting.
Gerald Henderson and Kyle Singler scored 19 points each and the third-ranked Blue Devils overcame their worst shooting game of the season for its seventh straight victory, pulling away for a 70-56 win over sloppy Georgia Tech on Wednesday night.
The Blue Devils (15-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) were just 23-of-59 from the field, a shoddy performance that would have been enough to get them beat on many nights. Not this one.
Georgia Tech (9-7, 0-3) turned it over 18 times, went only 7-of-19 from the free throw line and started with three straight ACC losses for the second straight season.
