Free throws not so free for Duke

Bookmark and Share

DURHAM — The only thing that went wrong for Duke in its win over Georgia Southern on Tuesday went spectacularly wrong. The Blue Devils made just 25 of 49 attempts (51 percent) from the free throw line.

Lance Thomas made one of eight tries. Greg Paulus made 5 of 8 but missed on two shots after a technical foul on the Georgia Southern bench. Jon Scheyer made 1 of 3; Miles Plumlee 1 of 4. Scheyer said it was a weird feeling watching that many misses but he and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski both felt the night was an aberration. Scheyer talks about it more in the audio clip.
