DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — As hot as Quinn Cook has been shooting lately, No. 4 Duke can't afford to not have him on the court.
Good thing he almost never gets tired.
The short-handed Blue Devils have been leaning hard on their lone scholarship senior lately. Cook has three straight 20-point games while playing all but one minute of the last five games for Duke (25-3, 12-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).
It's no wonder teammate Matt Jones described Cook on Friday as "the rock of the team."
There are fewer Blue Devils than when the season started. Semi Ojeleye's transfer and Rasheed Sulaimon's dismissal have left Duke with just eight scholarship players.
They've needed more production from everyone — and Cook, in particular, has been providing it for them.
Over Cooking? No such thing for Duke
