Duke Blue Devils tame the Tigers, defeat Clemson 79-53
Despite the chatter about Duke losing its super powers this season, the Blue Devils convinced fans that they were not done yet. They man-handled Clemson on Saturday in just about every category en route to a 79-53 win.
The Blue Devils appeared to be playing as if the familiar roar of crazy fans at Cameron Indoor Stadium was there as it had been in past seasons. The energy, the dominance and execution was working like a well oiled symphony thanks to Matthew Hurts 13 point performance and Mark Williams who contributed 11 points off the bench. It was one of the most balanced offensive attacks of the season for Duke which featured contributions from nine different Duke players - six with double figures.
The Blue Devils rose to 7-5 on the season (ACC 5-3) while Clemson picked up their fifth loss of the year. "Our energy has been increasing day by day," Williams said.
"I think we just did a great job preparing."
The Blue Devils travel to Miami for their next matchup as they get set to take on the Hurricanes on Monday night.
