EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Seth Curry scored 23 points, big men Mason Plumlee and Ryan Kelly had double-doubles and No. 2 Duke beat Temple 90-67 in a matchup of unbeatens on Saturday at the Izod Center.

Curry was 5 for 9 from 3-point range, leading Duke's 12-for-20 effort from behind the arc.

Plumlee finished with 16 points - the first time he was below 19 this season - and 14 rebounds. Kelly had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Duke (9-0) while Quinn Cook added 14 points and made three 3s.

The Blue Devils have three wins this season over teams ranked in the top four: No. 3 Kentucky, No. 2 Louisville, No. 4 Ohio State.

Quenton DeCosey had 13 points for the Owls (6-1), who were looking for their best start since going 14-0 in 1987-88, a season that ended with a regional weekend loss to Duke in the Izod Center.
