08:26 AM ET 01.05 | Dating back to late-November, Duke's defense, specifically its intensity, has been questioned. [After Wednesday's loss to Temple], Duke's players sounded many of the same alarms they did after that loss to the Buckeyes. "We didn't fight," Austin Rivers said. "It's the same stuff that happened with Ohio State. We came out, and we didn't fight. They just kept throwing punches at us and kept making shots. People can say, 'Oh, they were lucky shots.' But they weren't." ... Added Mason Plumlee, "I just think both games, we came out flat and not ready to play. You can't come out slow on the road." Mason and Miles Plumlee paced the Blue Devils offense, finishing with 16 and 17 points, respectively. Wyatt led all scorers with 22 points.
