LIVE BLOG: Duke 74, Coastal Carolina 49 (FINAL)

(11/17/09 4:50am)

Final Duke 74, Coastal Carolina 49: Things started very slowly for the Blue Devils offensively tonight. But, they were able to heat up a little bit in the second half, and Coastal Carolina never had a chance shooting just 28.6% from the field. Statistically, Kyle Singler was the standout with 23 points and 10 rebounds. John Scheyer, Andre Dawkins, and Miles Plumlee were all in double figures as well. While Dawkins definitely didn't shoot a high percentage tonight, if he can be a solid third or fourth scorer, this Duke team will be better off for it.

Duke aims to halt defensive decline in tourney

Duke has been a No. 1 seed in the previous two NCAA tournaments, but did not earn a similar distinction entering this year’s postseason. There are many reasons for this drop in seeding, not least the departures of offensive standouts Nolan Smith, Kyle Singler and Kyrie Irving. But the bigger regression has come on the other end of the floor, as this year’s team has also failed to achieve the level of defensive prowess typical of Duke teams past.

At the surface, Duke’s 83-76 non-conference victory over St. John’s would appear to be a satisfactory result. However, after seeing a 16-point halftime lead that ballooned to 22 points early in the second half become a four-point contest in the game’s waning moments, head coach Mike Krzyzewski was disgusted with his team’s effort, especially on the defensive end of the court.

Dawkins has success in first game off bench

During their shellacking at the hands of Ohio State, at times the Blue Devils looked unorganized and unsure of their specific roles within the offense. The confusion and lack of cohesion resulted in frequent one-on-one play from Austin Rivers and an uncharacteristically high number of entry passes into the post to let Mason Plumlee play with his back to the basket. The end result was a blowout loss in Columbus.

Paulus adds limb to Krzyzewski coaching tree

When two of the nation’s top five teams take the court for tonight’s battle in Columbus, Ohio, the eyes of the college basketball world will be on Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger and William Buford. But the duo, which has combined to score 36.5 points per game for the Buckeyes this season, gets substantial assistance from a man working in the shadows, the Ohio State video coordinator­—former Duke point guard Greg Paulus.
