DURHAM, N.C. - Ryan Young came off the bench for a season-high 20 points, Jaylen Blakes scored 17 points in his first career start and No. 17 Duke beat Florida State 86-67.

Young, a transfer from Northwestern, had 12 rebounds.

Reserve Dariq Whitehead added 16 points for Duke (11-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), which is undefeated in eight home games.

Darin Green Jr. and Matthew Cleveland both scored 18 points and Caleb Mills added 16 for Florida State (4-11, 2-2), which remains winless away from home.

Blakes, a sophomore, had four of the 11 baskets from 3-point range for Duke, which was playing for the first time since a Dec. 20 loss at Wake Forest.

The Seminoles were within 64-53 with less than nine minutes to play before the margin ballooned to 25 points.

Duke used a 10-0 run near the midway mark of the first half and led 42-25 at halftime behind 12 points from Young and 11 from Blakes. Three of the Blue Devils' starters didn't score in the first half and another, Jeremy Roach, was 1 for 7 from the field.

BIG PICTURE

Florida State: The Seminoles were competitive for stretches but had gaps in defensive rebounding that proved costly. They got only eight points from reserves while Duke posted 46 points from its bench players.

Duke: The Blue Devils were aggressive from the start and yet they needed boosts from the bench to reach a comfortable margin in this game. This was just Duke's second game since Dec. 10, but there will be a steady diet of games for the rest of the season.

TIP-INS

Blakes took freshman Tyrese Proctor's place in Duke's starting lineup. . Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton was going for his 400th win while in charge of the Seminoles and his 600th overall. . Florida State hasn't won at Cameron Indoor Stadium since January 2012.
