Over at the Duke Chronicle, Shane Smith takes a look at Duke’s win over Virginia Tech.
One of the real strengths of Duke’s win was absolutely locking down Landers Noelly, who has been playing at an All-ACC level. Duke really made him a non-factor, thanks in no small measure to Wendell Moore.
Given the youth of the Blue Devils, a game like this was highly encouraging.
Coach K said “I was worried because we just had a big game and the travel that we might get worn out. And our kids really showed a great spirit tonight, where I know they’re tired, but they didn’t play tired.
