Rodney Hood scored 21 points to help No. 6 Duke beat Virginia Tech 66-48 on Tuesday night. Rasheed Sulaimon added 15 points for the Blue Devils (23-6, 12-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), who jumped to a 24-4 lead midway through the first half and never trailed - though they struggled to land a game-finishing blow on the Hokies. Duke didn't shoot the ball particularly well and its outside shooting was streaky, but it still had relatively little trouble against a Virginia Tech team that has won just once since the start of the calendar year. The last-place Hokies (9-18, 2-13) had a strong start to the second half and got within seven points, but never seriously threatened what would have been an improbable comeback in Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Blue Devils finished the game shooting 39 percent, including 10 for 33 from 3-point range - well below their ACC-leading 40.7 percent.
