DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Lexie Brown scored 32 points, Haley Gorecki added a career-high 20 and No. 14 Duke cruised to a 101-30 win over Winthrop on Sunday.

Brown was 14 of 22 from the field, two more field goals than the Eagles had (12 of 46). Gorecki went 7 of 11, including 5 of 7 behind the arc for the Blue Devils (8-2), who shot 61 percent for the game (42 of 69).

Rebecca Greenwell, who is two 3-pointers shy of setting the Duke record with 253, did not suit up with knee pain that has her listed as day-to-day. She went 0-7 behind the arc in her last two games, only the second time in her career she went without a 3 in back-to-back games.

Kayla Brown had 12 points for Winthrop (1-8), who had 28 turnovers that Duke cashed in for 45 points.

Duke closed out the first quarter with a 14-2 run to lead 28-5 and ended the first half on a 17-2 run to make it 52-12, its highest-scoring half of the season and reached 100 points for the first time.
