SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Tricia Liston had 20 points and eight rebounds as No. 3 Duke beat Syracuse 86-53 on Thursday night, spoiling the Orange's first home game in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Elizabeth Williams added 14 points and 11 rebounds for Duke (15-1, 2-0), whose only loss was to top-ranked UConn 83-61 in December.

The Blue Devils have beaten four ranked opponents this season_ California, Purdue, Oklahoma, and Kentucky. Syracuse (11-4, 0-2) dropped out of the poll this week after consecutive losses to No. 23 Arizona State and North Carolina State, now ranked No. 20. The highest-ranked team a Syracuse women's squad has beaten was No. 2 Connecticut, 62-59 in January 1996.

Duke won the only previous meeting between the teams, 84-40, in the Big Four Classic in Greensboro, N.C. in December 1995.
