No. 1 Duke rolls on


Dunleavy hurts ankle in first half

The Associated Press

        CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A small shakeup to the lineup and an injury to Mike Dunleavy wasn't enough to derail top-ranked Duke.

        Carlos Boozer had 23 points and 14 rebounds as the Blue Devils extended their winning streak to 22 games with a 106-71 victory over Davidson on Wednesday night.

        Duke (12-0) started the game with forward Dahntay Jones out of the lineup for the first time this season, replaced by Casey Sanders as an apparent message for Jones to pick up his play.

        He did, coming into the game midway through the first quarter and breaking open a surprisingly close game. He scored 19 points in 26 minutes, leaving the game with about eight minutes left after getting hit in the lower abdomen.

        But Jones' production came at just the right time — Dunleavy left the game with a sprained left ankle with eight minutes to go in the first half. Dunleavy fell to the floor holding his left ankle after colliding with a Davidson player while going up for a rebound.

        Dunleavy is not expected to miss any playing time.
       “We took him out of the game for precautionary measures, so he could get some ice on it, and that was a good thing,” Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “I anticipate him being ready for Florida State (on Saturday).”
