Duke's win over Wake Forest was the textbook definition of "routine". Wake came out face-guarding Jasmine Thomas, but the Devils moved the ball around nicely and carved up Wake's defense in the early going. Wake was able to stay within range in the first ten minutes of the game or so, but an 8-0 Duke run put them up by 13 points. Duke couldn't quite shake the Deacs after that, but a three by Jasmine Thomas gave the Devils a 17-point lead at the half. After that, the rout was on for the Devils, as it took Wake nearly thirteen minutes to score 10 more points. Meanwhile, the Devils uncorked 24 points to take a commanding 30 point lead. Duke's young players got plenty of minutes and did a good job of staying focused, outscoring Wake's young players 20-9 down the stretch. Duke simply did what they needed to do: they were +21 on the boards, they had 21 assists on their 32 field goals, they forced 21 Wake Forest turnovers, and they held the Deacs to a season-low 39 points on 26% shooting. Wake was absolutely no match for them, even at home at Joel Coliseum, and the Devils moved quickly to squash whatever confidence the Deacs had going into the game.
