Halftime stats

The Blue Devils will take the court again Wednesday for their highly anticipated showdown at No. 2 Wisconsin

“That was a good basketball game. Both teams played really well. I’m proud of what has become.”Coach K

“That’s my base. I love West Point. One of the reasons I’m a good coach here is my five years there.”

Coach K gets teary eyed talking about what West Point means to him. Palpable, the emotion and gratitude Coach K feels for his alma mater

On memories of his collegiate playing days: “When I’m shaking hands with them…. ‘That was me.'”

Coach K on his alma mater: “They could play anyone we’ve played and have a chance to beat them.”

Coach K presser” we handled ball well.. We had 20 assists”.

Coach K didn’t mince words on Winslow‘s day (7 points, 3 fouls, 12 min): “Justise never got in the game today. It wasn’t a good game for him.”

Season-low 12 minutes for Justise Winslow, who was in foul trouble all day. Beneficiary was Rasheed Sulaimon, with a season-high 26 minutes

Exactly 75% of Duke FR Jahlil Okafor’s 56 made FGs this season have been assisted. Quinn Cook and Tyus Jones have assisted 53.6% to Okafor.

Jahlil Okafor‘s numbers through 7 games are comparable to Jabari Parker‘s as a freshman last season.
