Duke brought the hammer in a 85-56 blowout of No. 16 Robert Morris in the Round of 64 at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, N.C., Friday night.

With the win, Duke joined Kentucky and North Carolina as the only three teams to win 100 games in NCAA tournament play.

Robert Morris enters the contest having won its last seven games, and it hopes it can do more than just replicate a strong NCAA tournament performance in 2010 in which it lost to No. 2 seed Villanova 73-70 in OT. Duke has not played in a week since its loss to Notre Dame in the semifinals of the ACC tournament halted a 12-game winning streak. In the past three years, the Blue Devils have lost to No. 15 seed Lehigh and No. 14 Mercer in the Round of 64 and will look to make sure the Colonials don't become the tournament's newest Cinderella. Here are the X-factors for each team when the ball is tipped Friday night in Charlotte, N.C., for a ticket to the Round of 32.
