DURHAM, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Georgia Schweitzer became Duke's all-time leader in 3-pointers as the fifth-ranked Blue Devils claimed their first Atlantic Coast Conference victory of the season, 81-56 over Wake Forest.

Schweitzer made 3-of-5 from long range to raise her career total to 161, passing Jennifer Scanlon's school record of 159. For the game, the senior guard finished with 15 points, six assists and three steals.

Freshman Iciss Tillis matched a season-high with 16 points and Sheana Mosch added 11 for Duke (13-1, 1-1 ACC), which has won four in a row since falling to Clemson on December 9. The Blue Devils stretched their home winning streak to 11.

Eafton Hill was the only player for Wake Forest (7-5, 0-2) to reach double figures in points with 12. LaChina Robinson chipped in eight and Johanna Bjorklund six.

Schweitzer and Tillis each scored seven points as Duke held a 39-20 advantage at halftime. The Blue Devils forced 23 turnovers and hit 13-of-15 from the free throw line in the first half.

At the start of the second half, Schweitzer hit her record-setting 3-point at the 18:34 mark and Tillis tallied nine points over the next five minutes.

Duke attempted a season-high 40 free throws, making 28, and held Wake Forest to 0-for-10 from behind the 3-point arc. It marks the second time in the last four games the Blue Devils have held an opponent scoreless from long range.
