EAST LANSING, Mich. – Vernon Carey had 26 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks to help No. 10 Duke dominate No. 11 Michigan State in an 87-75 victory Tuesday night.

The Blue Devils (8-1) looked like one of the top teams in the country and not a rebuilding one a week after losing at home to Stephen F. Austin.

Duke guard Tre Jones scored 20 points, matched a career-high with 12 assists and made three steals as part of a defensive effort that forced 14 turnovers.

The Spartans (5-3) went into the game ”a little fragile,” according to coach Tom Izzo, and they looked out of sync and overmatched.

Duke went on an 8-1 run midway through the first half to build a double-digit cushion and led 45-29 at halftime.

Cassius Winston made a 3-pointer to pull the Spartans within eight early in the second half.

Carey answered the surge with a three-point play and a layup to restore a double-digit advantage the Blue Devils had no trouble maintaining.
