DURHAM, N.C. — Lexie Brown scored 26 points, Hayley Gorecki had a double-double and No. 14 Duke defeated Maine 69-39 on Tuesday night.

Gorecki had 13 points and 10 rebounds for her second straight double-double starting in place of senior sharpshooter Rebecca Greenwell. Greenwell, who is two 3-pointers shy of the school record, missed her second game with knee pain and is considered day-to-day.

Gorecki’s 3-pointer started a game-opening 14-0 run, which was capped by Brown’s 3, giving her seven points. Maine (6-6) missed its first five shots and started 1 for 10.

The Blue Devils (9-2), have won three straight.

Blanca Millan had 16 points and Fanny Wadling a career-high 13 rebounds for the Black Bears, who shot 20 percent (12 of 65), and made just six of their school-record 43 attempts from 3-point range. Maine reserves didn’t score in 47 minutes of combined action, going 0 for 14.
