Duke gets back to winning ways
The Duke Blue Devils men’s basketball team on Wednesday suffered its worst loss of the season in a blowout by the 25th ranked Miami Hurricanes. However, the Blue Devils got back to their winning ways as they beat the Maryland Terrapins by a score of 84-64, Saturday.
“This was just a game to show basically what our character was like,” Blue Devils freshman guard Rasheed Sulaimon said to ESPN after the game. “Are we going to fold after a big loss, or are we going to step up and be men?”
Sulaimon led the Blue Devils with a season high 25 points, along with a rebound and two assists. According to the News & Observer, his head coach Mike Krzyzewski thinks this is only the beginning.
“He’s going to be an outstanding player here,” Krzyzewski said. “He’s got a 7-1 wingspan. He’s getting stronger. We’re not going to see who he is this year completely, but as a result of being given the opportunity to play, his growth will be faster because he’s got this opportunity. All the guys love playing with him.”
