PITTSBURGH, Pa. — For about a quarter of the game Wednesday night, Pittsburgh hung with No. 6 Duke.

As soon as the teams began to turn to their non-starters, however, the Blue Devils took over.

Jasmine Thomas had 16 points and Duke got 44 points from its bench, pulling away from Pittsburgh in the second half for a 93-55 win.

Shay Selby had a career-high 15 points for Duke (5-0), which had six players score at least 10 points.

The Blue Devils went on a 14-2 run beginning with 10:33 to play in the first half and never led by less than seven the remainder of the contest. They routed Pitt 50-21 in the second half, closing the game on a 20-2 run over the final 7:38.

The Panthers (2-2) held a lead midway through the first half and shot 60 percent before halftime but made only four of their first 16 shots in the second half, shooting 8-for-22 in the second half in all.
