The Duke Blue Devils rolled to an 85-62 victory over North Dakota State to advance to the round of 32 this Sunday against the winner of Central Florida and Virginia Commonwealth.
Zion Williamson playing in his home state helped Duke with 25 points, including several highlight dunks.
Duke played a very sluggish first half on offense taking a 31-27 lead into the break over the underdog Bison. But the Blue Devils came out focussed and overwhelmed North Dakota State in the second half.
R.J. Barrett added a team-high 26 points as Duke outscored the Bison 54-35 in the second half.
The Blue Devils won their 30th game of the season against 5 losses.
