Every Saturday, the News & Observer takes a look around the ACC. That also provides an opportunity to check in with the Blue Devils and look for any emerging trends.
Regardless of the lineup, there has been one constant for the Blue Devils this season: They finish well.
With Sunday’s 62-61 win at Boston College, Duke improved to 5-0 in games that are within one possession with under three minutes remaining. Against the Eagles, Duke actually trailed by five with 2:30 left in the game, but a 6-0 run, with three free throws by Mason Plumlee were enough for the comeback win.
