(TSX / STATS) -- DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke didn't play at the highest level, but the top-ranked Blue Devils were good enough anyway Friday night.

They also vowed to do better.

Wendell Carter Jr. scored 20 points and Duke had enough weapons to repel stubborn Southern in a 78-61 victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
