Furture NBA first rounders, Austin Rivers and Seth Curry each scored 17 points as Coach K notched victory No. 904 in his illustrious career.

Chris Czerapowicz led Davidson with 15 points in their first loss of the season. Davidson led for most of the first half. They were actually leading, 41-39, after J.P. Kuhlman’s bucket with 17 minutes left in the game. Mason Plumlee took over after that, scoring six straight points for the Blue Devils en route to their 89th straight non-conference victory. With the win, Duke has now won an NCAA-best 39 consecutive games from Cameron Indoor Arena.
