CHARLOTTE—It's a baker's dozen worth of victories for No. 1 Duke to open the 2012-13 season. Check out the game story from the 67-50 win over Davidson. And below are a few more thoughts and notes:
***One game after scoring a Duke career-high 31 points against Santa Clara, Seth Curry went 3-for-11 from the field for just six points in front of his hometown Charlotte crowd. He did record a team-high three assists, though, which tied his season-high. Other than Mike Krzyzewski, Curry drew the loudest applause during pregame introductions.
“I got the shots that I wanted, but I just wasn’t able to knock them down,” Curry said. “Coming out of the gate, I was maybe pressing a little bit, trying to get my shot going. It didn’t really go early or anytime throughout the game. I got the shots that I wanted, that’s the biggest thing. I’ll bounce back Saturday.
***For the fourth game in a row, Duke appeared to come out sluggish, or at least not matching the standard set this season. After the game, Quinn Cook didn’t seem overly concerned that it would develop into a long-term trend.
