BROOKLYN -- It was a tale of two halves for sophomore standout Luke Kennard. The ACC's leading scorer and only unanimous first team selection, went 1 for 9 from the field in the first half as the Blue Devils found themselves tied with the No.12 seeded Tigers at halftime.
But Duke built a 13 point second half lead, thanks in part to Kennard, who shot 8 for 11 in the second half - including two clutch jumpers late - on his way to another 20 point outing.
Jaron Blossomgame led the Tigers with 19 points and 8 rebounds.
The No. 5 seeded Blue Devils will take on No. 4 Seed Louisville tomorrow in the quarterfinals.
