DURHAM, N.C. (AP) – Quinn Cook had 24 points and nine assists to help No. 10 Duke beat No. 22 Michigan 79-69 on Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Freshman Jabari Parker added 15 points to help the Blue Devils (7-2) regroup from last week’s loss to Arizona by grinding out a tough win against the Wolverines. Duke didn’t shoot the ball well early but frustrated Michigan’s offense, turning away every spurt and keeping the Wolverines (5-3) at arm’s length much of the game.

Andre Dawkins came in midway through the second half and hit two straight 3-pointers to finally start Duke’s clinching run, helping the Blue Devils to improve to 13-2 all-time in the Challenge – by far the best record for a team in either conference – including 6-0 at famously hostile Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Caris LeVert matched his career-high with 24 points for Michigan, though leading scorer Nik Stauskas struggled all game.
