|No. 1 Blue Devils roll past Bradley
|DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Andre Dawkins scored a career-high 28 points in his first start to help top-ranked Duke beat Bradley 83-48 on Wednesday night, moving coach Mike Krzyzewski into sole possession of third place on the all-time wins list.
The sophomore hit eight 3-pointers for the Blue Devils (9-0) in place of star freshman point guard Kyrie Irving, who is out indefinitely with a toe injury on his right foot. Kyle Singler added 17 points as Duke shook off a cold-shooting first half and blew the game open with a flurry of 3s after halftime.
It was Krzyzewski's 877th victory, moving him out of a tie with Kentucky's Adolph Rupp and putting him just two behind North Carolina's Dean Smith for second place behind Bobby Knight's 902 wins.
Walt Lemon Jr. scored 14 points for the Braves (4-5), who have lost five straight.
