Duke Destroys Gonzaga 76-41

By December 19, 2009No Comments

An ugly first half turns into a route for a Duke team looking for some consistency.  Duke got 24 points from Nolan Smith today who did it all over the court. Shooting 10-17. Jon Scheyer also put up numbers today off the heels of his 36 point game against Gardner-Webb, Scheyer added 20 tonight against better competition.  Singler is still in the midst of a slump only shooting 3-8, 0-5 from 3. He added only 9 points to the total today.

Defensively Duke was sharp, forcing 18 turnovers and outrebounding the Zags 40-3, Duke also blocked 5 shots in this one.  As sharp as Duke was defensively it must be noted that the catalyst for Gonzaga Matt Bouldin is still recovering from a concussion suffered two games ago, he was not himself in this game but 5 turnovers and 1-7 shooting is not a Matt Bouldin game. I hate to quantify a win or deflate enthusiasm as Duke would have won this game regardless, it would not have been such a blowout under normal circumstances. Regardless, this is a good win for Duke.
