CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Trevor Booker scored 21 points, Terrence Oglesby had five 3-pointers and No. 10 Clemson beat No. 4 Duke 74-47 on Wednesday night, the first time the Tigers had consecutive wins over the Blue Devils in 13 years.
Clemson (19-2, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) used a 20-8 run over the last 8 minutes of the first to take a 33-21 lead. The Tigers extended the lead to as many as 23 points.
Duke (19-3, 6-2) had won 22 straight over Clemson -- most in blowout fashion -- since the Tigers won three straight in the series in the 1994-95 and 1995-96 seasons.
The Blue Devils' run of success ended last March in the ACC tournament semifinals when Clemson beat them 78-74. Booker and the Tigers made sure the regular-season streak ended at Littlejohn Coliseum.
