CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Haley Peters scored 17 points, Tricia Liston had 15 points and 10 rebounds and No. 5 Duke bounced back from their first Atlantic Coast Conference defeat with its 18th straight win over Clemson, 78-51 on Thursday night.

The Blue Devils (22-2, 9-1 ACC) fell to new league rival Notre Dame 88-67 last Sunday and trailed Clemson (11-13, 3-7) late in the first half of this one. But Duke put together a 32-12 run starting in the final minute before halftime to take control.

It was Peters' first double-figure showing in three games while Liston posted her third game this season with double figures in points and rebounds.

The Blue Devils held Clemson's top scorer, Nikki Dixon, to 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting. Dixon had been averaging better than 14 points a game this season.

Richa Jackson had 13 points and Ka'lia Johnson added 10 for Duke.
