Duke basketball is building a powerful forward tandem as March approaches. The Duke basketball team is looking much more like a traditional Blue Devil squad, and it’s because of the forward tandem Mike Krzyzewski has finally put together. After the departure of a freshman forward, it has allowed sophomore Matthew Hurt to play his natural position of power forward while Mark Williams has been inserted as the full-time center for the Blue Devils.
The last time the Blue Devils and Orange missed the Big Dance was in 1982 and one team took a step closer to March Madness with a blowout victory. Coming off its biggest win of the season against No. Virginia on Saturday, Duke didn’t have much time to enjoy the victory or take a few hours to unwind as it was back on the floor Monday night and you never would have known the Blue Devils might have been dealing with tired legs.
Blue Devils match season high with 13 3-pointers
