#4 Duke impressive in win at #10 Purdue

Kyle Singler and Jon Scheyer led the Blue Devils with 20 points a piece as Duke rolled over the Boilermakers, 76-60, as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Singler also posted 12 rebounds in the win.

In his freshman season, Singler was forced to guard guys bigger and stronger than he was, and he eventually wore down towards the end of the season. This summer, he forced himself to eat as much as his stomach could handle, and he looks quite a bit stronger as a result.

Duke is starting Nolan Smith at point guard; he beat out Greg Paulus for the starting gig in the preseason. Smith had 12 points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal against Purdue, and looks to be turning the corner as a player. Plus, it helps Duke to have Paulus’ wealth of experience coming off the bench. Smith, Paulus and Scheyer make for a formidable rotation in the backcourt.
