DURHAM, N.C. — Seth Curry scored a season-high 20 points in his return to Duke's starting lineup, leading the third-ranked Blue Devils past Boston College 84-68 on Thursday night.

Nolan Smith finished with 28 points while Kyle Singler had 14 for the Blue Devils (19-1, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who shot 50 percent from the field, hit 10 3-pointers and used a huge Curry-led run early in the second half to claim their fourth straight win.

The expected duel between the ACC's top two scorers never materialized. Reggie Jackson, who entered second to Smith in the league scoring race, finished with a season-low seven points — 13 fewer than his average.

Ryan Kelly added 14 points for Duke, but his streak of consecutive shots made ended at 18 when he missed a follow-up early in the second half — his first miss in nearly two weeks.
