NCAA BASKETBALL: JAN 15 Virginia at Duke

Duke plays good 2nd half defense to rip UNC-Greensboro – Mason Plumlee interview

Duke came out sluggish against UNC-Greensboro but found their way to a 45-34 lead at the half.  The Blue Devils defense locked down on the Spartans in the second half holding them to 8 points in the first 11 or so minutes and that propelled them to a 90-63 win, pushing their season record to 10-1 going into the Christmas break.  Mason Plumlee had another double-double for the Dukies scoring 15 points to go with 13 rebounds and his brother Miles added another 13 boards himself as Duke controlled the boards in the second half.

Austin Rivers added 14 points as did freshman Quinn Cook who went 6 of 7 from the field earning Coach Krzyzewski’s praise during his post game interview.  We’ll have more on the game a little later but until then, here is Mason Plumlee talking about his double-double.
