DURHAM, N.C. -- Quinn Cook followed his worst scoring game with his best -- and his production helped No. 1 Duke after one of its leaders was hurt.Cook scored 20 of his career-high 27 points in the second half after Ryan Kelly left with an injured right foot, and the Blue Devils beat Clemson 68-40 on Tuesday night after holding the Tigers to their lowest-scoring first half in 12 years.Kelly had 12 points in the first half but sat out the second. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said Kelly hurt the same foot he tweaked during the holidays and sprained last March, an injury that kept him out of both the ACC and NCAA tournaments.
