Associated Press  |  Last updated January 27, 2013
Haley Peters scored 15 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to help No. 4 Duke beat Boston College 80-56 on Sunday. Chloe Wells added 13 points for the Blue Devils (18-1, 8-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won their 34th consecutive home game against ACC competition. Chelsea Gray and Tricia Liston scored 12 points apiece for Duke. Elizabeth Williams had 10 points for the Blue Devils. The Blue Devils shot 47 percent from the floor and finished with a 47-28 advantage in rebounds, improving their all-time record against the Eagles to 11-2. Kristen Doherty scored 14 points to lead Boston College (8-11, 2-6), which lost its fourth consecutive game. Kerri Shields added 13 points and Nicole Boudreau had 11 points for the Eagles. Boston College shot 30 percent from the floor, including 6 of 24 from 3-point range. The Blue Devils led 49-33 at halftime after shooting 56 percent from the field and making 8 of 10 3-point attempts. Liston and Wells led the charge, each shooting 4 of 4 from the floor. All four of Liston's shots were 3-pointers, including one from the left wing that capped a 9-0 run to give Duke a 28-17 lead with 8:30 left in half. Wells added a pair of 3-pointers before halftime, including a 25-footer from the right wing to beat the shot clock buzzer early in the game. Liston and Wells each made a 3-pointer during a 7-0 run that gave the Blue Devils a 40-24 lead late in the first half. The Eagles stayed within striking distance with some hot 3-point shooting of their own after Duke's initial spurt. Shields nearly duplicated the 4-for-4 effort of Liston and Wells before halftime, making three 3-pointers. Doherty also made two 3-pointers for the Eagles, who shot 5 of 11 from behind the arc in the first half. Duke honored its 2003 team, which won the ACC championship and reached the Final Four, at halftime. It marked the first time that Gail Goestenkors, who coached the Blue Devils for 15 seasons and led them to four Final Fours before leaving to coach Texas in 2007, had returned to Duke to watch a game.
