WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Lexie Brown scored 27 points and Rebecca Greenwell became Duke's all-time leading 3-point shooter on Thursday night as the 16th-ranked Blue Devils defeated Wake Forest 80-67.

Greenwell had 23 points, and her three 3s gave her 254, two more than Tricia Liston. Greenwell had been one 3 short of the record for nine games, five of those she missed and two she was limited because of a knee injury. She started every game she played, 108, until coming off the bench the last two.

Brown had 18 points and Greenwell 12 as Duke (13-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) shot 57 percent and took a 43-34 lead at the half. The lead reached 19 late in the third quarter.

Duke finished 9 of 18 behind the arc and shot 52 percent overall. Brown was 4 of 5 from distance, Greenwell 3 of 5. Wake Forest shot 37 percent, going 7 of 28 behind the arc.

Elisa Penna had 24 points for the Demon Deacons (10-7, 2-2) and Ariel Stephenson added 18.
