Duke's dunking Devils

15 of Duke's 27 first-half shots were layups or dunks. They made more of those shots (11) than Robert Morris attempted (10).


Half: Duke 42, Robert Morris 25

Duke's Quinn Cook had 16 points and made four of his team's five 3-pointers in the half. The Blue Devils shot 63% from the field and didn't even need Justise Winslow, its third-leading scorer, to attempt a shot in doing so.


Duke offense clicking

Quinn Cook has 14. Jahlil Okafor hasn't missed a shot yet. 13 of their 16 field goals have been assisted. Yup, it's safe to say that Robert Morris isn't offering the same type of challenge to Duke that Mercer did last year. Follow live
