DURHAM, N.C. - Rodney Hood scored a career-high 30 points Tuesday night to help sixth-ranked Duke beat East Carolina 83-74 in the NIT Season Tipoff.

Freshman Jabari Parker had 21 points and nine rebounds for the Blue Devils (4-1), who survived a tougher-than-expected fight from the underdog Pirates to improve to 24-2 all-time in the early season tournament.

Duke led by a single point with about 7 minutes left but stayed in front and did enough in the final 2 1/2 minutes to turn away East Carolina (4-1).

The Blue Devils advanced to next week's semifinals in New York's Madison Square Garden.
