The Blue Devils didn’t have the easiest game in the world for a No. 2 seed, but unlike some other big boys over the course of the day, they were never really in any trouble of losing as a No. 2 seed for the second straight season. It was a good game for G Seth Curry and F Mason Plumlee. These two combined to shoot 19-of-25 from the field, and they had 26 and 23 points respectively. F Ryan Kelly was really the only man that didn’t come to the table with something big as a starter. This is a nice matchup for the Blue Devils. Creighton has the ability to hit a bunch of shots from the outside with F Doug McDermott, but Kelly is the perfect man to match up against him. This is what the Cincinnati Bearcats really didn’t have when they took on the Blue Jays in the second round of the tourney. That’s not to say that Creighton didn’t have to endure a tremendously physical game, because it definitely did. It’s tough to come back from a game like that and win a game against a team that is, at least in terms of talent, a significantly better team. Remember that the Bearcats really weren’t playing good ball as it was in the second half of the season, and the fact that the Blue Jays struggled so much against them really couldn’t be considered fantastic. Duke is much different competition, and we think that the Blue Devils are going to come out and pound the Missouri Valley champs on Sunday.
