AP Basketball Writer

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Freshman A.J. Griffin scored a season-high 27 points to help No. 9 Duke roll past rival North Carolina 87-67 in retiring Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski’s final visit to Chapel Hill. The Blue Devils shot 58% and took all of the drama out of the renewal of the famed rivalry early in both halves, both in building a big lead and then stretching it back out after the Tar Heels had made a run to climb back in it. Brady Manek scored 21 points to lead the Tar Heels in first-year coach Hubert Davis’ head-coaching debut in the rivalry.
