DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Elizabeth Williams scored 18 points to help No. 4 Duke beat Valparaiso 90-45 on Friday night.

Tricia Liston added 17 points and a career-high 12 rebounds for the Blue Devils (3-0), who blew open the game with a 29-4 run beginning midway through the first half.

Haley Peters scored 16 points for Duke. Chelsea Gray and Ka'lia Johnson had 11 points each for the Blue Devils.

Duke outscored Valparaiso 54-10 in the lane en route to its 57th consecutive home victory over unranked non-conference opponents.

The Blue Devils scored at least 80 points for the third time in as many games, the first time they have done that to open a season since 2005.

Tabitha Gerardot scored eight points to lead the Crusaders (2-3), who lost their third game in a row.

Valparaiso shot just 29 percent from the floor, including 8 of 30 from 3-point range.
