You have to make Kyle Singler (below) put the ball on the floor. When he's running off screens he is deadly, but not as much as off the bounce. With Jon Scheyer and Nolan Smith, transition is key. They want to get eight to 10 points quick. Duke thrives on runs, so you have to stop its spurts. The Blue Devils want to outplay you the final three minutes of the first half and the first three of the second, so make sure that your players stay focused during those stretches. You can let them throw it inside because they don't have anyone who can score 15 in the paint.
ATTACKING THE BLUE DEVILS' DEFENSE
They do a good job taking away your strengths, and now that they're playing physically, they're even tougher. The key will be how the game is called, whether the refs allow them to be as physical as they want. You have to hope to get some calls and get to the free throw line.
If you can get Singler to force shots instead of getting them in the flow of the offense, that's the starting point to beating them.
