NCAA Tournament Second Round: Duke Blue Devils vs. Rhode Island Rams

NCAA Tournament Second Round: Duke Blue Devils vs. Rhode Island Rams

Rhode Island's squad is much older than Duke's and brings experience that Duke's youngsters lack.

The opponent this time, though, might be as physically gifted as any team he has faced. "Maybe our quickness, the multitude of players we have that can make threes or make plays against that zone".

"I was probably a 3 1/2-star player and Duke historically doesn't go for those", Danny said.

CT women's coach Geno Auriemma, 63, has 1,024, and they add up quickly when his team wins 30-plus games a season, every season.

Let me put this another way.

Duke: For all of its offensive brilliance, the biggest difference for the Blue Devils over the last month has been their work at the other end of the floor. But there are no assurances. They also have one of the most dominant frontcourts in the country with Marvin Bagley and Wendell Carter, who are both potential Top-10 picks next June.

"It's a constant thing for us". Duke is moving on to the Sweet 16 for the 24th time under coach Mike Krzyzewski. "There are different motivations from teams in the tournament as you move along".

They would cruise to the win. He scored nine of Duke's first 11 points to establish the Blue Devils' dominance in the paint and when the backcourt got going, the Rams simply couldn't keep pace. "She really was a pioneer and set up what is today's, you know, the glory that the women's game has right now, " Krzyzewski said of Summit, who died in 2016 at age 64.

Or, he could have said: with 2:16 to play in a game your team trails by 5 and is expected by almost everyone to lose. Duke finished with 21 points off 17 Belmont turnovers and the Bruins' 58 points were their second-lowest total of the season.

The Blue Devils (23-8) pulled away in the second half by locking down on defense on the perimeter. The Bruins were denied in their bid for their first NCAA win. Whether Hurley is there to guide them is another matter.
