    Duke Defense in the tourney

    I have been amazed at just how suffocating our defense has been in the tourney.

    We held Houston 20 pts below their season average - their low scoring game of the season. 40% and 25% from 3 with 10 TOs (ave 43/35/9)

    We held JMU 29 pts below their season average. Also their lowest scoring game of the season. 38% and 22% from 3 with 14 TOs (ave 48/36/11)

    We held Vermont 25 pts below their season average. Also their lowest scoring game of the season. 38% and 25% from 3 with 12 TOs (ave 45/34/9)

    We post a lot about our offense, but we are winning this on the defensive end.

    Good point. That was the main reason I voted for Proctor as MOTM, though it was very difficult to choose. He has been outstanding thus far in harassing the other team's best guard, and Houston didn't take huge advantage of all our early turnovers in part because of his (and the whole team's) defensive efforts.

    Dang, I knew we'd been playing tough D but didn't know it was THIS good! Thanks for putting these stats together. Let's hope we keep up the trend against the Wolfpack!
