Duke (7-0) returns home after putting in the finishing touches on the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, defeating the Indiana Hoosiers. They may not have blown them out as expected, but it’s hard to even win at Indiana, let alone by a big margin. It’s become clockwork for Marvin Bagley, with another 20 and 10 game with 23 points and 10 boards. Wendell Carter also chips in with a double-double as well in the frontcourt. Grayson Allen had 21 points but had to play all 40 minutes due to the closeness of the game throughout.
As expected, Duke has one of the best offenses in college basketball, currently ranked No. 9 in offensive efficiency. With all five starters more than capable of scoring 20 points any given night, Duke can always afford one or even two guys having an off night and still win.
It’s nice to have practice time because we weren’t able to practice a lot through the stretch we just had. It’s good to get another practice and get back into our defensive habits. Where to be two passes away, where to be on the help side, talking, what we’re doing on screens. A lot of it is tricky for a freshman coming into college because you’re not going to play every team the same way in man. You have to know your matchups, you need to know their personnel. You need to know which guys you’re going to jam, which you’re going to run off the three-point line, what guys you’re going to recover short to. That’s the difference. You need to know your man principles, but every game is going to be different in how you matchup against a team.
The Blue Devils might not want to have an off night to their next opponent, the Coyotes of South Dakota (7-2). Since head coach Craig Smith arrived, South Dakota has been in the top-tier of the Summit. That looks to be the case this season, with the only two losses coming in a one-point defeat to Northern Colorado and by just five to now No. 23 TCU.
