Duke Blasted by Virginia Tech 89-75; Kennard Scores 34
Duke went into Blacksburg with more questions than answers and it showed. Duke arrived with a ton of talent but left with a double-digit loss 89-75. Virginia Tech played like a team that was hungry while Duke looked like a team that just met each other at the tip. Duke was ineffective in every phase of the game and completely shook in a true road environment. Yes there are a lot of factors at play as to why Duke looked as bad as they looked but in the end it was a team that didn’t play well. That looked lethargic and for the most part uninterested. I’m sure that isn’t the case but the team on the floor played with a minute about of fight and a defense that looked more like a matador designed it.
We know the situation with the Blue Devils and their lack of continuity this season. Its been a season of trying to deal with injuries, and guys working their way back and then to add to that a suspension of Grayson Allen. It was a perfect storm for Duke and credit to Virginia Tech for playing a near flawless game. Tech won this game in
