SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Mark Williams scored a career-high 28 points, Paolo Banchero had 21 and AJ Griffin added 20 as No. 7 Duke raced to a daunting early lead and beat Syracuse 97-72.

Duke is closing in on its first ACC regular-season championship since 2010. Banchero also had nine assists and Williams had 12 rebounds. Buddy Boeheim led Syracuse with 23 points. Syracuse honored Krzyzewski, who is retiring after the season.
