DURHAM — Duke brings in so many highly touted freshmen year after year, it’s easy to forget the value of a good upperclassman.
Not so on Tuesday night.
Duke junior center Brian Zoubek started in place of freshman Miles Plumlee, and junior Lance Thomas and seniors David McClure and Greg Paulus played a good supporting cast during a Duke victory that passed for the Kyle Singler Show in the first half.
Singler scored 19 points, 18 in the first half, as eighth-ranked Duke beat Georgia Southern 97-54 in the second round of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
