Elizabeth Williams scored 18 points and No. 4 Duke routed Wake Forest 73-44 on Sunday for its 38th straight victory in the series.

Richa Jackson added 10 points and Chloe Wells matched a season best with 10 points for the Blue Devils (15-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).

They shot 48 percent, forced 23 turnovers, turned them into 26 points and outscored Wake Forest 40-22 in the second half to remain the only unbeaten team in Division I. They haven't had a game decided by fewer than 10 points.

Lakevia Boykin scored 12 points and Dearica Hamby finished with 11 to lead the Demon Deacons (9-7, 2-2). They were coming off an upset at No. 18 Florida State three days earlier but were denied their first victory over Duke since 1993.
