Duke moves into 2nd round with 73-44 win
Duke did not have any trouble what so ever in their opening round match up against Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Friday night as they cruised to a 73-44 victory. The Golden Lions had no chance down low as the Blue Devils controlled the boards and got the ball in Kyle Singler’s hands as he took the game over and scored a team high 22 points and grabbed ten rebounds.
Jon Scheyer hit three three pointers and knocked down a free throw as he chipped in with 13 points. Lance Thomas add 12 for the Blue Devils while Nolan Smith had ten of his own points on 3 of 10 shooting. Scheyer and Smith didn’t need to score as much as usual as Singler took the game over but expect Scheyer and Smith to really step up on Sunday as the team will need them to knock down more shots to move into the Sweet 16.
