After dropping their second game of the season this past weekend to the Arizona Wildcats, the Duke Blue Devils wanted to come into the ACC/Big Ten Challenge and make a statement, and make a statement early against the Michigan Wolverines.

Duke did just that on Tuesday night as they defeated last year’s national runner-up, 79-69.

While star freshman Jabari Parker was impressive in this one yet again with 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting, it was guard Quinn Cook who really stole the show in this one.

Cook finished the night with 24 points on 6-of-11 shooting. The Duke guard also went a perfect 10-of-10 from the free throw line, showing off a little bit of that junior class maturity. He also threw in nine assists, nearly giving him the double-double.

Forward Rodney Hood also finished in double-digits with 14 points.

With the win, Duke now improves to 7-2 on the season and they’ll take on Gardner-Webb next on Nov. 16

Michigan, who dominated their way through the tournament last year, falls to 8-3 on the season and they’ll face Houston-Baptist next on the seventh.
