Vikings point guard John Allen, from Mountlake Terrace High School, scored 17 points and forward Paul Jones had 20 points.
"This was a very enjoyable experience for us," said Western coach Tony Dominguez. "As a coach, and as a fan of the ACC, and the Duke-North Carolina rivalry, it was exciting to be part of this for a couple days. What an environment it was to experience."
Center Mason Plumlee and forward Ryan Kelly each scored 22 points for the Blue Devils, ranked No. 8 in the Associated Press preseason poll. Plumlee had a game-high 11 rebounds.
Freshman guard Rasheed Sulaimon scored 20 points, 15 in the first half to help Duke take a 54-39 halftime lead.
"That was a really good basketball game," said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. "I like that team so much; you can tell why they were Division II champions ... Their kids are fearless, strong, and they caused a lot of turnovers. I thought we responded well."
Duke never trailed, but Western closed to within seven at 39-32 with 6:24 remaining in the first half. After a timeout, the Blue Devils ran off 13 consecutive points and the margin was double digits the rest of the way.
"D-II teams are some of the best coached teams in the country," said Krzyzewski, who said he believed John Allen would compete well in the ACC. " ... They have great comradarie and they play together. If you get a group like that that's older, and good, they can compete against a lot of D-I schools ... We could have lost to them today if our younger kids don't play well."
Western, which lost 88-78 in an exhibition at University of Washington last Wednesday, opens its season Friday, Nov. 9 at home against Multnomah University.
