Jabari Parker scored 26 points in his sixth straight 20-point performance. Hood finished with 22 for the Blue Devils (5-1), who extended their nonconference winning streak at Cameron Indoor Stadium to 106 games — barely.
Duke blew a 15-point lead and allowed Vermont to shoot 65 percent before finally getting the one defensive stop it needed. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
