Duke downs IN behind Marvin Bagley III's 23 points

Duke downs IN behind Marvin Bagley III's 23 points

The main habit we've developed over these nine games is how to win. 7 Florida, ended late on Sunday. Duke (9-0) beat IN 91-81, but it was a grind. This is our ninth game in 20 days. "It's not a good day, '" head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. It was just past midnight on Thursday, hours before Duke was to depart back to Durham.

Bagley has posted double-doubles in seven of the team's nine games, racking up 30 or more points and 15 rebounds in both of the last two games in last weekend's PK80 Invitational. But it has become apparent, over the last few games that the traveling has begun to ware on the Blue Devils.

Duke: The Blue Devils showed how much potential they have, dominating a large portion of a matchup that would be fitting of a regional final.

For the third consecutive game, Duke struggled to contain an opposing team's offense, and trailed late in the game.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee built a big lead early and stretched it out in the second half with a record defensive performance.

Although No. 14 Duke never trailed, its victory against No. 8 Ohio State was anything but easy.

But in each of those games, it eventually found a way to win. They'll be able to look back on those games against Texas, Florida and now Indiana. All Indiana exposed is that Marvin Bagley III and Duke Basketball are already ready for the biggest stage. "We go to these tournaments and you get fans from everywhere and every team". "We just had to stay calm, cool and collected and make a run of our own".

For Duke, the game offers a chance to put together a consistent 40 minutes and for the first time since it left home before Thanksgiving.

Standout performers: Robert Johnson finished with 17 points before fouling out in 33 minutes. "We've got to get better and start off better".

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - If there were ever a time for Duke to take an upset loss, Wednesday had all the ingredients. Texas and Florida did the same. Duke doesn't have a true backup point guard.

Two things are true right now: Duke is the best team in the country, and Duke is far from a finished product. The Blue Devils penetrated the paint with drives and interior passes while remaining opportunistic from 3-point range.

How it happened: It was a battle between IN and No. 1 Duke for almost 40 minutes on Branch McCracken Court. With five of Duke's first nine games taking place away from Cameron, the Blue Devils have shown poise in unfamiliar environments all season and will bring their chemistry back to Durham Saturday for the first time in almost two weeks.

Bagley's fellow freshmen Wendell Carter Jr. and Trevon Duval had big games.

Krzyzewski said there hasn't been time to practice since their trip to Portland.

"We were expecting a run", Brown said. Their habits are not well-defined yet.

Unfortunately, the Blue Devils won't have time to do that before its next game, Krzyzewski added. The Blue Devils have another three games in seven days beginning Saturday at home against South Dakota, but then they have only one game from December 10 to December 29.

Krzyzewski said his team has to learn how to play better defense and talk more. "This is a work in progress, but it's a good work in progress".
