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.”

If this is the case, the Blue Devils will be tough to beat by the time March Madness rolls around.
