Duke real quick early. Plumlee with a breakaway dunk off a great feed.

Len off the dribble just reverse dunks over Plumlee. Wow.

That was a pretty sweet alley oop.

And then Len with a nasty dunk.

Yeah, didn't think MD could answer that alley oop, stylistically at least... then Len does that. Haha, pretty crazy sequence.

No Seth allen in first half.

MD killing Duke on the boards.

Mitchell providing a big lift for the Terps inside.

Interesting to hear that Allen is benched for the 1st half for disciplinary reasons.

Mitchell working hard early. Pshon needs to stop shooting 3's.

Poor foul by Howard.

He should be smarter than that.

Fixed that for you.

Howard with a stupid foul on a 3 pter and Duke gets a 4 point play.

Refs gives Mitchell #2 on a flop.

Haha, there's a classic Flop there. Just an awful call.

Maryland is getting pretty unlucky with the 3's falling for Duke. They've matched Duke other than that. Just gotta hope those 3's stop falling at such a high rate.

Not much you can do about that last Duke 3. Faust was on him and had a hand in his face. Keep at it. No easy looks.

Wells with a big basket after some long range shooting from Sulamon gives Duke a 8 point lead. Wells will be on the line after the TO. Kind of surprised ref did not award Duke another call after Sulamon flopped on Wells drive.
Maryland is playing well but Duke is cranked up after the blow out to Miami. It will be a tough game for Terps.

Just a horrible decision to go down and double team Plumlee, which opened up the Sulaiman wide open 3 pointer last trip down the floor. You don't need to double up Plumlee. Defense is wetting the bed in a big way today.

MD's rebounding is why they aren't down 15 or more.

Their defense has been poor.

Need to get the ball in Wells and Len's hands more often.

I'm glad I'm following at work and not watching live. There's nothing worse than watching a game where Duke is hitting their threes.

Ehh, I actually think the game should be closer. Sulaimon isn't supposed to go crazy for 15 points in the first 10 minutes and shoot 4/4 from ouside. (Averages 11.3 PPG and 37.7% from 3). Sure, the bad D has attributed to that, but everything's falling from behind the arc for Duke right now.

Need to stop doubling down and let Len play Plumlee. The threes are coming off doubles. Maryland could learn something there. Also Jake needs to be more aggressive with his shot. Terps playing hard and moving the ball well need to knock down the open shots. No one expects Terps to win, have fun and play.
