Brandon Ingram finished with 25 points and nine boards to lead No. 15 Duke past Boston College, 81-64.
It was the first true road game of the season for the Blue Devils, who kicked off ACC play with a win. Ingram played all 40 minutes, scoring at least 23 points for the fifth time in his last seven games, a stretch where he is averaging 21.8 points and 8.3 boards.
Ingram’s role of a matchup nightmare at the four is key for Duke in conference, as his ability on the perimeter will help make up for the fact that the Blue Devils will not have a true power forward until Amile Jefferson returns from his foot injury.
