DURHAM, North Carolina (Ticker) - After cruising in its final non-conference game of the season, sixth-ranked Duke continues Atlantic Coast Conference play when they host Georgia Tech on Wednesday.

The Blue Devils (23-3, 10-2) pounded St. John's, 86-56, on Saturday, to snap a two-game losing streak.

Freshman Kyle Singler had 16 points and Gerald Henderson added 13 for the Blue Devils, who are the third-highest scoring team in the nation at 85.5 points per game.

However, Duke is looking to rebound in the ACC, where they suffered two straight losses last week to Wake Forest and Miami, respectively.

The Yellow Jackets (11-14, 4-7) are coming off their fourth straight loss, a 92-84 setback against Virginia Tech Saturday.

Freshman Maurice Miller scored a season-high 29 points and Anthony Morrow added 18 in the defeat. Morrow leads the team in scoring at 14.3 points per game.

It is the only meeting between the two teams this season. The Blue Devils have won 20 of the past 22 contests.
