No. 1 Duke Completes Comeback Win Over Texas In Overtime

No. 1 Duke Completes Comeback Win Over Texas In Overtime

Marvin Bagley III can cover up a lot of flaws.

And eventually, they did.

Duke needed peak Bagley against Texas on a night when the Blue Devils didn't look the part of a No. 1 team for long stretches. Gary Trent Jr. added 17 points for the Blue Devils, who trailed by 16 points in the second half.

The second half opened with more of the same, as the Longhorns built a 64-48 advantage before the Duke offense came alive. Getting 33 points off the bench, Mizzou led for almost 39 minutes and by as many as 30 points.

"The first half we obviously weren't playing like we were normally do". We weren't going to our strengths. "Coaches, they called plays for me and they believed in me to keep attacking and going to the rim, just trying to create something", said Bagley, who had 21 points in the second half and overtime.

"In the second half, they had to react to us", Krzyzewski said. He's 200-29 when the Blue Devils sit atop the poll.

Texas (4-1) was led by Dylan Osetkowski as he finished with 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists. 25 Portland in December 2009. "We were in a reactionary mode the first 20 minutes".

Duke has played twice previously in Portland, winning both games.

The three-day tournament, which is nicknamed the PK80, celebrates Nike co-founder Phil Knight's 80th birthday.

MU wins fourth in a row • The Missouri women's basketball team won its fourth straight game Friday, taking down Coppin State 73-50 in Berkeley, Calif., in the Cal Classic. Teams in the Victory Bracket played at the adjacent Memorial Coliseum.

Grayson Allen, one of five Blue Devils in double figures, chipped in 14 points and nine assists. "Their size was a tough deal for us", Viking's first-year coach Barret Peery said.

"I'm proud of our team", Peery said.

This game will offer contrasting styles as Duke shoots the three-ball well enough - 37 percent - while Texas struggles at 27.4 percent. Church made it 29-8 with 7:07 to play in the half.

Duke: Bagley is the first Duke freshman to have five double-doubles over his first seven games.

North fouled out midway through the second half.

Regan Magarity scored 12 points and six rebounds, Chanette Hicks had 19 points and Alexis Jean tallied 10 points and grabbed 12 rebound for the Hokies (5-0).

Take away Bagley's four-point performance against Michigan State when he logged only 10 minutes before leaving with an eye injury, and he would be averaging 24 points per game so far this season. But he was back in form against Portland State. Get the app and get the game.

AGAINST No. 1: Texas had faced a No. 1-ranked opponent nine previous times, with a 0-9 record. The Vikings have tangled with a No. 2 team twice, including an 89-39 loss at Duke on December 30, 1997.

Senior guard Bryce Canda of Portland State is the Big Sky Conference Player of the Week.

Duke is 8-1-1 ATS in its last 10 games overall.

NORTH'S SECOND TECH: North was on the floor in front of the scorer's desk, getting ready to check into the game when he earned his second tech of the game. The Blue Devils (6-0) will face the victor of the Thursday game between Butler and Texas.

But, without Allen in the lineup, the Blue Devils are extremely young and prone to letting up - as was the case against Portland State.
