(11/21/16 8:13am)

The top-ranked Blue Devils posted an impressive win in the title game of the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Sunday, topping No. 21 Rhode Island 75-65 with virtually no depth. Duke's five starters all played at least 33 minutes and all scored in double figures, led by sophomore Luke Kennard's 24 points. The Blue Devils also managed to outrebound the Rams despite using a four-guard lineup, with 6-foot-9 forward Amile Jefferson grabbing 15 boards.

(11/20/16 7:46am)

Pittsburgh dominated the Blue Devils in every phase of the game Saturday on its way to a 56-14 win. After Duke cornerback Bryon Fields returned an interception for a touchdown in the second quarter to trim the deficit to 21-14, the Panthers scored the last 35 points of the contest. The Blue Devils dropped to 4-7 with the loss, but could still sneak into a bowl if they win their season finale at Miami next week.

Despite battling back from a 10-point deficit in the final five minutes of Tuesday night's matchup against No. 7 Kansas, top-ranked Duke suffered its first loss of the season, falling 77-75 to the Jayhawks in New York. Sophomore Luke Kennard starred for the Blue Devils, tallying 22 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field and nailing a pair of triples. Freshman Frank Jackson also hit two 3-pointers in the waning minutes, including a game-tying triple with 20 seconds left, but a contested jumper by Kansas' Frank Mason III in the closing seconds propelled the Jayhawks to victory.

Top-ranked Duke will be put to an early test Tuesday at about 9:30 p.m. against No. 7 Kansas at Madison Square Garden in New York in the Champions Classic. All eyes will be on freshman wing Josh Jackson for the Jayhawks, but three of the Blue Devils' most prized recruits will all likely be out with injuries.

Duke recovered from a slow start to cruise past Grand Canyon 96-61 Saturday night in its second win in as many days at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Grayson Allen and Frank Jackson both scored more than 46 points, as the Blue Devils' backcourt more than made up for the team's injuries in the post. Head coach Mike Krzyzewski said in his postgame press conference that he does not expect Jayson Tatum, Marques Bolden or Harry Giles to play Tuesday against No. 3 Kansas in New York.
