DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Dahntay Jones collected 22 points and 11 rebounds Wednesday night as top-ranked Duke shook off a sluggish first half for a 93-86 victory over the Georgetown Hoyas in the first matchup between the schools in a dozen years.
Duke (10-0) remained one of two unbeaten teams in Division I along with No. 18 Wake Forest. The Blue Devils host the Demon Deacons Sunday night.
Georgetown (8-2) took a 44-41 lead on a halftime buzzer-beater by Tony Bethel and Gerald Riley's jumper made it 48-43 early in the second half. Duke freshman J.J. Redick made a jumper, Casey Sanders made a foul shot and Chris Duhon's basket tied it.
A free throw by Mike Sweetney gave the Hoyas a 49-48 lead, but Sweetney was forced to the bench seconds later with his fourth foul. The Blue Devils took advantage with 10 straight points, triggered by a three-pointer from Duhon.
Redick made another three-pointer and freshman Shelden Williams made a pair at the line. An inside hoop by Jones capped the run for a 58-49 advantage with 14:55 remaining.
Daniel Ewing scored 19 points and Williams had 15 and 11 rebounds for Duke, which failed to win by double digits for the first time this season.
