Paul Pierce says he thinks Duke could beat the Cavaliers

With Williamson, Cam Reddish and R.J. Barrett all topping 20 points for the second game in a row, the Blue Devils dispatched pesky Army 94-72 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Duke has once again put together a squad of talented freshmen with RJ Barrett and Zion Williamson among the highlighted newcomers across the country.

Now the No. 4 Duke Blue Devils, fresh off a 118-84 shellacking of No. 2 Kentucky last Tuesday night, have to come down to earth and prepare for the challenges that lie ahead.

(4) BAYLOR 65, (23) ARIZONA STATE 59: Nalyssa Smith had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and the Bears (3-0) overpowered Arizona State (1-1) inside in a game played on the Navajo Nation in Fort Defiance, Arizona.

Duke's lack of an offensive rhythm also resulted in several missed shots and long rebounds that helped the Black Knights get a head start in transition. Still the Blue Devils are doing their best to stay grounded even as their stellar season-opening performance has already spurred talk of them waltzing to a national title. He and Jerome had outscored the Colonials 27-26 when they both got an extended break midway through the second half with Virginia comfortably ahead.

The Zion Williamson experience has managed to exceed expectations through the first two games of his Duke career. They didn't back down against a preseason Final Four favorite, and were very much in the game until the final 10 minutes.

But Duke came out of an official timeout with an 11-0 spurt while Army went scoreless for almost three minutes. Reddish was 9 of 21 while Barrett was 9 of 19.

Duke returns to Durham to take on the Army Black Knights.

The Colonials (0-3) attempted to make a run in the second half, making six of their first nine shots, including four 3-pointers.

The Blue Devils looked to be on their way to having another game well in hand at halftime when they took a 36-25 lead when Williamson scored an easy lay-in off an in-bounds pass from Jones at the 8:41 mark. After winning by over 30 points against Kentucky, another 30-point win will probably happen. There are about 39 or 40 more games left. - Austin Rivers' buzzer-beating 3.
