Duke has lost four times this season. There is a common theme.
“They have struggled from the 3 sometimes in their losses,” Arizona Wildcats coach Sean Miller said. “And even in their tight games.”
And Miller was being kind. Duke hasn’t just struggled sometimes from 3-point range in its losses. The Blue Devils have struggled all the time.
Let’s just look at those defeats.
–Was 11 of 35 from 3-point range in a 66-61 loss to Florida State.
–Hit 5 of 26 while losing 93-78 to St. John’s.
–Made only 4 of 20 in a 64-60 defeat to Virginia Tech.
–Was 6 of 27 from beyond the arc in an 81-67 loss to North Carolina.
