Durham, NC -- Mason Plumlee recorded a double-double with 19 points and 14 rebounds on Friday night, as No. 8 Duke opened its season with a 74-55 triumph over Georgia State at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Plumlee also blocked four shots, while Seth Curry added 15 points and Tyler Thornton netted 13 points for the Blue Devils (1-0), who were coming off a 27- win season that ended in disappointment, as they were upset by 15th-seeded Lehigh in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Blue Devils have now won 95 straight non-conference home games, the longest such streak in the nation.

Devonta White paced the Panthers (0-1) with 19 points and freshman R.J. Hunter, whose father, Ron is the Panthers' head coach, added 14 points and 10 boards for a Georgia State squad that won 22 games last season.
