The Duke Blue Devils have hit a brick wall the last two ball games against Wake Forest and Miami.Ã‚Â Playing both games on the road, the Blue Devils have been unable to come away with wins as they are now tied with North Carolina for first place in the ACC.
Duke fell behind early as Miami was playing lights out basketball in the first half.Ã‚Â The highest scorers in the first half of the Blue Devils only had six points which is unheard of for a Duke player.Ã‚Â Heading into halftime the Blue Devils were already down 41-36 and it quickly grew to a 20 point lead in the second half as the Hurricanes went on a 15-0 run that Duke had no answer for.
I will give the Blue Devils credit for battling back after being down 20 points in the second half.Ã‚Â Sophomore Jon Scheyer had a career high 27 points, and DeMarcus Nelson really stepped up his play in the second half as he finished with 19 points.
I really believe that Coack K needs to sit Gerald Henderson down for atleast one or two games so he can let his wrist heal up.Ã‚Â Henderson isn’t doing much on the offensive end of the ball like we are used to seeing.Ã‚Â Usually he is at the free throw line four or five times a game, but he just isn’t taking the ball to the basket as much with the hurt wrist.
Duke can overcome this little slump on Saturday when St. Johns makes a visit to Cameron Indoor Stadium.Ã‚Â The game can be seen on CBS and will tip-off at 4:00 eastern.
