DURHAM, North Carolina (Ticker) -- In a battle of legendary coaches, Mike Krzyzewski again prevailed over John Chaney.
Daniel Ewing scored 24 points and J.J. Redick added 22, including five 3-pointers, as fifth-ranked Duke gave Krzyzewski his seventh win in eight meetings with Chaney with an 82-74 triumph over Temple.
One of six active coaches to surpass the 700-win plateau with 713, including 488 with Temple, Chaney watched his team stay close in the first half as the Owls (5-6) trailed by just four points at the break, 36-32.
"When you have a well-oiled team playing against a great coach, it's very difficult to think that you're just going to walk in and somebody's going to lay down and play dead," Chaney said. "I'm pretty proud of my guys. They kept pecking away."
Temple climbed within a point on Mardy Collins' three-point play with 17:37 remaining in the second half, but Lee Melchionni hit a pair of 3-pointers and Redick buried another to cap a 9-0 run and give the Blue Devils a 49-39 advantage.
"We struggled shooting the three in the first half and we know that we're all good shooters, and if we get open looks, they're going to go down," Melchionni said. "I was open, just let them go and they fell for us and sort of gave us a spark to get going in the second half. That's what I was trying to do."
Duke made 38 percent (13-of-34) of its 3-point attempts, including 50 percent (9-of-18) in the second half.
"We hit a good percentage," Krzyzewski said. "The fact is, you have to take them when they're there. Their defense may give you that look for just a second and you have to be ready to take it because then a big guy is coming."
The Owls kept the game within reach but never could reduce the deficit to less than five points, and Redick made 5-of-6 free throws down the stretch to assure Krzyzewski his 705th career victory.
"This was a very positive game for both teams," Krzyzewski said. "The other team wasn't going to lose a game like this, you had to win it. You had to make good plays to win and a bunch of kids were making them. It was a great win and, obviously, it's an honor to play against John and his kids."
Redick was 7-of-8 from the line, improving his all-time NCAA-leading free-throw percentage to .939 (308-of-328). The miss was his first at home this season (43-of-44).
Shelden Williams scored 10 points, Melchionni added nine and freshman DeMarcus Nelson eight - all in the first half - for Duke (11-0), which extended its winning streak over Temple to five games and remained one of four undefeated teams in the nation.
Collins scored 23 points and Dustin Salisbery chipped in 21 for Temple, which has lost three of its last five games.
After Ewing opened the contest with a layup, Temple scored the next eight points to take an 8-2 lead with 16:16 to go in the first half. Collins scored five points during the spurt.
Duke, which is 11-0 for the third time in four seasons, answered with a 12-2 run as Ewing scored five points and Nelson added four to give the Blue Devils a 14-10 edge with 12:15 remaining.
"We've found ways to step up and meet challenges, despite adversity and some injuries," Ewing said. "We've got different guys every game who can step up and make some big plays for us. ... Everybody contributed and made a big play somewhere. It might not have been a shot, but everyone made a big play today."
Ewing had 17 points in the second half after going 3-of-11 from the field in the opening 20 minutes.
"Daniel really led us," Krzyzewski said. "He's been a heck of a player for us and he's been a little bit down on himself about his shooting and it affected some of the other parts of his game. ... Just before the second half, I told him to keep shooting. There are shots and there are great shots, and he made a couple big ones."
