The Duke Blue Devils rose to #3 in latest college basketball poll.

They won’t be there next week.

Wednesday night in Philadelphia.

The Owls grabbed the lead midway through the first half and never let go.  They used a stifling man-to-man defense that took away Duke’s three point shooting and, despite a comeback down the stretch by the Blue Devils (12-2), held on for the win.

Duke had gotten within three points at 60-57, but Wyatt hit consecutive three pointers to get the lead back to nine points and the Owls (10-2) were never headed again.

Mason Plumlee led Duke with 16 points and 13 rebounds.
