Duke 99, Utah Valley 69

DURHAM, N.C. -- Freshman forward Marvin Bagley produced his second big outing in as many nights with 24 points as Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski posted his 1,000th victory at the school with the top-ranked Blue Devils defeating Utah Valley 99-69 on Saturday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Krzyzewski is 1,000-271 in 38 seasons with Duke. Of those, 506 triumphs have come on the Blue Devils' storied home court.

Because Syracuse's Jim Boeheim has had 101 victories vacated by the NCAA, Krzyzewski becomes the first coach to have 1,000 victories at one school.

Krzyzewski, the NCAA's all-time winningest men's coach, has an overall record of 1,073-330 in 43 seasons.

Grayson Allen's 18 points, Gary Trent Jr. 17 points and Trevon Duval 15 points and 12 assists also boosted Duke (2-0), which overwhelmed Elon here a night earlier. Wendell Carter Jr. had 12 points, all in the first half.

Bagley added 10 rebounds, giving him double-doubles in his first two games.

Duke freshmen accounted for 43 first-half points as the Blue Devils led 48-33.

By the time Allen, a senior guard, finally scored on a fast-break dunk, it gave the Blue Devils a 42-31 edge. He drained a 3-pointer on the next possession.

After missing his first two shots and then inadvertently providing Utah Valley with a tip-in, Bagley went on a tear and had 14 points and eight rebounds by the break.

Duke had 18 points off 10 first-half turnovers by the Wolverines.

Akolda Manyang racked up 17 points and 12 rebounds, Kenneth Ogbe had 13 points and Brandon Randolph added 12 points for Utah Valley (0-2), which began the season with a 73-63 loss Friday night at Kentucky.
