DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Freshman Frank Jackson scored 19 points and No. 6 Duke beat William & Mary 88-67 on Wednesday night.

Grayson Allen added 17 points to help the Blue Devils (5-1) win their third straight since their loss to No. 5 Kansas last week. Duke shot 50 percent and outrebounded the Tribe 39-25.

Amile Jefferson finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds, Luke Kennard had 11 points and Matt Jones scored 10 points. Duke has had five double-figure scorers in every game this season.

Jack Whitman and Daniel Dixon scored 13 points each for William & Mary (2-2), which hasn't beaten a ranked team since 1977 and has never beaten one on the road.

The Tribe hung around this one until the second half, but Duke shot 52 percent after the break and pushed its lead well into the 20s with an 18-7 run midway through the half sparked by two 3s by Jackson.
