ATLANTA — Jabari Parker had 16 points and 14 rebounds, and No. 5 Duke rolled past Georgia Tech 68-51 on Tuesday night.

Rodney Hood sank four 3-pointers and scored 14 points for Duke, which never trailed and led by double figures for the final 28 minutes. The Blue Devils (21-5, 10-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won four straight and nine of 10.

Duke is in a hectic run of four games in eight days. The Blue Devils will play at North Carolina on Thursday before facing No. 1 Syracuse on Saturday. The North Carolina game was postponed on Feb. 12 because of a winter storm. The stretch began with a win at Maryland on Saturday.

Robert Carter Jr. led Georgia Tech (13-13, 4-9 ACC) with 13 points. Kammeon Holsey had 12, and Chris Bolden added 10.

Duke led 50-30 early in the second half before the Yellow Jackets cut the deficit to 52-40.

Hood's 3-pointer, followed by Parker's offensive rebound, basket and free throw for a three-point play, pushed the Blue Devils' edge back to 18 points.

Rasheed Sulaimon had 11 points for Duke.

The crowd of 8,600 was Georgia Tech's first sellout of the season.
