Duke Rolls Past Delaware, 88-50


The #2 Duke Blue Devils played host to the Delaware Fighting Blue Hens Saturday afternoon after a close matchup with Ohio State earlier this week.

Delaware did not stand much of a chance as the Blue Devils rolled right on by them 88-50.

Mason Plumlee continued to be the clear leader for the Blue Devils scoring 18 points, 11 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 2 steals today.

Ryan Kelly was also a solid leader today scoring 18 points himself

The Blue Devils shot .350 from behind the arc and .524 on free throws. While they collected 19 fouls, they didn’t help Delaware too much who lost handily by 38 points.Seth Curry missed his first game of his career due to an ankle injury, and the timing could not have been more perfect with the Blue Devils playing a “breather” game after defeating two ranked teams this past week. No Curry…no problem for Coach K and his Duke team!

“You know, sometimes in these situations … there’s a chance for a letdown, and we didn’t have it,” Krzyzewski told ESPN. “Our guys played hard and well the whole way.”

Coach K and Duke stand 8-0 and will take a week off before heading up to Temple to play the Owls next Saturday as they look to stay undefeated and take over the #1 spot in college basketball rankings!
