GREENSBORO, N.C.—You could have sounded the final buzzer then. With 17:04 left in the game, 7-foot-2 center Dereck Lively II lined up on the wing and hit his second-career three to put Duke up 60-32. If the game was out of control before, that was when it ended.

In the teams’ Jan. 4 bout, N.C. State whooped the Blue Devils 84-60 in Duke’s worst loss of the season.

The only thing to take from a performance defined by turnovers and a breakdown of the team’s game plan was that the Blue Devils had serious questions to answer. Amidst lineup churn and glaring deficiencies, could Duke become a true postseason challenger by March?
