Quinn Cook. That is all you need to know and take note of from tonight’s Duke v. Clemson game.

Cook lead the Blue Devils in the 68-40 point routing of the Clemson Tigers in Durham. He had five rebounds, five assists, and four steals to go along with his twenty-seven points.

Cook turned a dud game into one of the most exciting games to watch with one of the most exciting performances seen on the court this year. It was just 25-10 in Duke’s favor at halftime. Duke was just shooting for 29% too!

Ryan Kelly was the player of the first half with a team high of twelve points. However a foot injury would take him out of the game after the first half. He sat on the bench watching his teammate dominate from the sidelines.

Clemson’s Devin Booker played all but four minutes in the game. He led the Tigers with just twelve points, but had fifteen rebounds in the game.

After an embarrassing first half that just had 10 points for the Tigers, they started the second half on fire. Clemson forced three backcourt turnovers that angered Coach K and forced him to call a time out to get his team under control.

Duke improved to 15-0 tonight and continues ACC play on Saturday in Raleigh against in-state rivals, NC State.
