Durham, n.c. — Seth Curry scored 20 points, Mason Plumlee added 18 and No. 1 Duke reeled off 23 straight points in an 88-47 rout of Cornell last night.

Freshman Rasheed Sulaimon had 16 points and Quinn Cook had a career-high 12 assists while showing up all over the box score for the Blue Devils (10-0).

Playing as a top-ranked team for the 210th time under Mike Krzyzewski — but the first since February 2011 — they posted two key season highs, shooting 56.7 percent and forcing 26 turnovers, while holding the Big Red scoreless for an 8-minute stretch when the game got away from them.

Shonn Miller had 14 points to lead Cornell (4-7). The Big Red missed their first 10 shots of the second half and shot 22.6 percent over the final 20 minutes to lose their third in four games and falling to 0-4 all-time against No. 1 teams.

No. 5 Louisville 79
Fla. Int’l 55

Louisville, Ky. — Peyton Siva’s career highs of five 3-pointers and 12 assists helped Louisville roll past Florida International. It was the first meeting between Cardinals coach Rick Pitino and Richard Pitino, his son and Panthers counterpart.

No. 6 Indiana 93
Mount St. Mary’s 54

Bloomington, Ind. — Cody Zeller finished with 16 points and six rebounds, and Christian Watford added 15 points and eight rebounds, leading Indiana to a rout of Mount St. Mary’s.

No. 8 Florida 82
SE Louisiana 43

Gainesville, Fla. — Mike Rosario scored a season-high 20 points to go along with six rebounds and four assists, and Florida routed Southeastern Louisiana.

The Gators (8-1) bounced back from a loss at No. 4 Arizona four days earlier, winning their only home game over a 40-day span.

No. 11 Cincinnati 60
Xavier 45

Cincinnati — Sean Kilpatrick scored 25 points and led a second-half surge that carried Cincinnati over Xavier, renewing their crosstown rivalry amicably one year after it was marred by a brawl.

Cincinnati (11-0) won its 18th straight game at a downtown arena that has become the rivalry’s stage for the next two years, an attempt to take the nasty edge off the annual game.

No. 22 Notre Dame 85 Kennesaw St. 57
