BOSTON (AP) - Brandon Ingram had 25 points and nine rebounds to lead No. 15 Duke to an 81-64 victory over Boston College on Saturday in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams.

Grayson Allen had 17 points, nine rebounds and five assists for the Blue Devils (12-2, 1-0), who beat the Eagles for the 10th consecutive time. Luke Kennard added 17 points and Matt Jones had 16.

Eli Carter scored 19 points for Boston College (7-7, 0-1). Jerome Robinson had 15 points and seven rebounds for the Eagles, who led by six points with 12:46 left in the first half before giving up 20 of the next 25 points.

BC led 12-6 with 7 minutes gone in the game before Derryck Thornton made a jumper on an assist from Allen and then Jones made a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to one point. Allen then stole the ball from Robinson and took it in for a dunk to give Duke its first lead of the game.
