It was an up down game for the Duke Blue Devils on Wednesday night against Maryland as they held off the Terrapins 77-65.Ã‚Â The Blue Devils were leading the game 41-30 at halftime, and quickly pushed the lead to 46-30 within the first few minutes of the second half, but that was when Coach Williams for Maryland called a timeout and the Terrapins went on a big run.
As the Duke lead went down to two points around the eight minute mark, freshman Kyle Singler took over.Ã‚Â He quickly pushed the lead back up to four with a nice layup as he drove by the defender on the baseline and from that point forward the Blue Devils never looked back.Ã‚Â Singler finished the game with a career high 26 points.Ã‚Â Single went 6 of 9 from beyong the arc and 10-17 overall.Ã‚Â Great game as the freshman continues to grow in the Duke system.
Greg Paulus had another good night shooting the ball as well.Ã‚Â Paulus finished with 20 points on 5 of 11 shooting including four three pointers.Ã‚Â He did have some trouble defending Vasquez of Maryland but overall he did a good enough job to get the win.Ã‚Â Speaking of Vasquez, have we seen a much more cocky player lately?
Two other Blue Devil players were in double figures as Jon Scheyer scored 13 points and DeMarcus Nelson scored 12 points.
One player who hasn’t been scoring as much lately has been Gerald Henderson.Ã‚Â Don’t just look at the scoring column though, Henderson is playing some great defense and really helping out the team in that fashion.Ã‚Â I do wish he would stop trying for the electric dunk, and lay the ball in as he attacks the basket.
Duke will next be in action on Sunday as they travel to Wake Forest.Ã‚Â The game will be seen on Fox Sports Net.
